The Arab Spring

Reactions: 
... is working out very well so far...
And he laid out a vision for the post-Gaddafi future with an Islamist tint, saying Islamic Sharia law would be the "basic source" of legislation and existing laws that contradict the teachings of Islam would be nullified. In a gesture that showed his own piety, he urged Libyans not to express their joy by firing guns in the air, but rather to chant "Allahu Akbar," or God is Great. He then stepped aside from the podium and knelt to offer a brief prayer of thanks.
This is what I expected to happen and it is going to happen in Egypt and all the other "Liberated" countries. It is the nature of the Islamic religion. It cannot change and become liberal due to it's dark origins.
The times we live in require us to make choices and to take a stand... 
31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be[a] against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? 33Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised— who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.[b] 35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36As it is written, "For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered." 37No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The magic button — Make Everything OK

Reactions: 

This is what makes the Internet a fun place... a real change from the news sites, Faceboook, Wikipedia and some of the scary stuff out there. Let me remind you what life is all about than with this quote...
“Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.” Cecil Beaton

Telling it as it is

Reactions: 
Tell Him was a hit in 1962 by the The Exciters that I can recall as a youngster... today I found it on YouTube again... Here it is! Of course the words can be swapped... as in my case... ;-) MD!


I know somethin' about love
You've gotta want it bad
If that guy's got into your blood
Go out and get him
If you want him to be the very part of you
That makes you want to breathe
Here's the thing you do
Tell him that you're never gonna leave him
Tell him that you're always gonna love him
Tell him, tell him, tell him, tell him right now

I know somethin' about love
You gotta take it and
Show him what the worlds made of
One Kiss will prove it
If you want him to be
Always by your side
If you want him to
Only think of you
Tell him that you're never gonna leave him
Tell him that you're always gonna love him
Tell him, tell him, tell him, tell him right now

Ever since the world began it's been that way
For man and woman were created
To make love their destiny
Then why should true love be so complicated? Oh

I know something about love
You gotta take it and
Show him what the world is made of
One kiss will prove it
If you want him to be
Always by your side
Take his hand tonight
Swallow your foolish pride and
Tell him that you're never gonna leave him
Tell him that you're always gonna love him
Tell him, tell him, tell him, tell him right now
Tell him that you're never gonna leave him
Tell him that you're always gonna love him
Tell him, tell him, tell him, tell him right now
Some other covers were by Laura Brannigan on a demo cut, check it out on YouTube and Vonda Shepard's version for the Ally McBeal soundtrack.
This also brings me to Dad's birthday... he is going in for tests today too... not the way one wishes to spend a birthday at all! Hope it goes well at the hospital today and we all wish you well and we love you Dad! 
Remember to tell those people you love that you love them... Often!
Me...
