Chile just had a massive 8.8 magnitude earthquake, which is devastating in itself, but now there is also a tsunami(basically an underwater earthquake) warning for ALL countries in the Pacific Basin; affecting some 1/4 of the world’s nations,and they are said to be evacuating parts of Hawaii and it is to hit Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand, areas of Polynesia and several Asian countries, with even Central America(where 18 of my cousins are currently on a cruise as well!) California and BC possibly affected. This is a terrifying possibility and destruction and loss of life on a massive scale. These people need our prayers! As well, it angered me to see on the local news website this major news story only has a very small area hidden in the corner of the page; 2/3 of the coverage on the page was mostly the stupid Olympics! How messed up priorities is that?This is a major concern of world importance and should be the MAIN topic covered! It also brings to mind the Bible prophecy of in these Last Days(imminent to Jesus’ return and destroying all evil in the world) of increased natural disasters, incl. the “annihilation of many nations”….could this be it? Might this catastrophic tsunami building up BE the end of several countries?Will many countries sink into the ocean?Remember the bad one in Indonesia a few years back?Imagine this on a more GLOBAL scale! A terrifying thought, but the good of it means Jesus will soon be here!Once that occurs, there will be no MORE death, disasters, war, poverty, oppression, injustice, and the like!
I was shocked and saddened to hear a Killer Whale killed it’s trainer at Sea World, and then even more surprised to hear it WASN’T the FIRST time, but the THIRD time this exact SAME whale killed someone,and if that isn’t enough, they refuse to put it down and are still allowing it in their shows! What? If they had shot it the FIRST time these last 2 people wouldn’t have been killed! The thing is dangerous and shouldn’t be given any more chances to kill anyone else! How many MORE people is it going to kill?I ‘m not one of those animal freak, tree-hugging granola crunching cranks; I put and value HUMAN life above that of animals and this is just ridiculous; they should put this thing down; it’s downright dangerous!
I am not following the Olympics yet even I couldn’t help but see in the news how the Canadian women’s hockey team is being admonished as inappropriate,”Trailer-trash”, and an embarrassment for having a loser boozer party on the rink, guzzling beer. Now I have to say that I’m NOT surprised; they’re not the most refined or sophisticated bunch; I mean, what do they expect? They’re white trash LOSERS; who else plays(or even likes or watches) hockey,anyway?(it’s not like it was tennis or polo we’re talking about here!)They’re probably bar skanks,anyway! Losers are what losers do! It speaks for itself! On the same note, a local radio DJ called Celine Dion “rude” and stuck up” for refusing an Olympic invite when probably she’s just cultured and doesn’t care about sports or had a prior engagement, or perhaps as well, doesn’t want to be associated with low-class antics such as what the women’s hockey team displayed. Wise choice on her part I’d say!It makes me embarrassed to BE Canadian,actually, and to be “associated” with people like this! They should ask some loser country music singer instead;someone like that would have no problem with it; they’d even think it was an honour! I have to admit crass vulgar behaviour is one of my pet-peeves, and if some people think that makes me a “snob” then so be it; I’d much rather be a “snob” than white trash!! At least I try to have some class and some tact.Their antics were shameful and low class!
We’re having a big snowstorm right now! Blowing gusting winds( 75 KM/HR) and heavy snowfall! We did last night as well and when I woke up everything was covered in a heavy white blanket and looked so beautiful, like a fairytale winter wonderland, so I got the camera and took many photos. The sky is also a pretty pink-ish colour and it FINALLY looks like winter again after being mild and having hardly any snow; until now you could even see the grass! THIS is more LIKE it! I ♥ the snow and missed it!

I ♥ hippos! Don’t know why(I love armadillos,too!) but I just do. I think they are cute, and look cool! I was quite surprised actually to hear they are quite fierce and have attacked more people in Africa than any other animal, even more than lions or crocodiles! You’d never know it by looking; they look so calm, peaceful,and laid-back.You’d never think they’d be so vicious and dangerous! They remind me of myself as well; the big bulky build, the love of water and swimming and their smooth skin is like my bald head! 🙂
I don’t know what the hell is going on here: my son’s(away at university) landlord called US and said something about them vandalizing the walls with grafitti and the apt. is filthy and unhabitable and that his 2 room mates moved out and he’s there alone and someone’s going to court, etc… well, this is the first we’ve heard of it! I contacted him and he said they “painted a mural” on the wall,the landlord is “crazy”, and that the room mates moved out as the landlord isn’t fixing repairs(broken fridge, leaking ceiling,etc..) so I don’t know who to believe or what’s going on(there’s always 2 sides to every story), but needless to say I am shocked and disappointed; why didn’t he tell us something was going on? I’m glad he’s handling it on his own but if there’s any trouble he should have let us know and have us be informed in case he needs help and it also makes me wonder what ELSE might be going on that we don’t know about and that he hasn’t told us,too(like he said a room mate is now shacking up with some skank; I bet HIS parents have no idea, either!)_…it’s not like him,either; he’s got a 4.0 GPA and has never been in trouble! Maybe it’s the room mates’ doing(and he just got caught in the middle?) and they weren’t who he thought they were, but people rarely are; you never really know people and certainly they aren’t what they seem or what you thought and most can’t be trusted. Well, he wanted to get out on his own and experience life….and he has, for the worst! Yikes!!
Our new next door neighbours have moved in; the ones we have been previously warned are “bad news” and the type that smash windows and would throw things into our pool, etc. and that we should get security cameras installed(on top of the security system we already do have). They just looked like people, although the did have cigarettes hanging out of their mouths, and when I mentioned to my son away at school(when he asked me what they seemed like and to describe them) one of the teens had a “muscle shirt” and a chain hanging out of his back pocket he said “Oh, shit! That’s not good..” and he proceeded to inform me this is a “sign”! We watched them move in and cracked up to see they had “Redneck porch furniture”; a beat up livingroom couch they keep out on the veranda! We will give them a fair chance, however, and not blindly believe rumours, and you can’t always tell by looking….but today in Church we saw our ex-neighbours who told us the new ones “steal things”, yet so did THEY and they’re losers, TOO(I guess it”takes one to know one?”) they used to be out there yelling, swearing, and fighting, drinking and smoking up themselves, and the police were often over there, etc… and we wonder how do they know them? Are they their friends(or former friends?) or former neighbours? Perhaps they’re even setting them up; planning on robbing us themselves knowing we’ll blame the NEW neighbours? They DID have a ladder in their yard before with “Property of Wal-mart” written on it and before we’d moved in(we had been warned by other neighbours to watch out for THEM!) our house HAD been broken into(the door had a crow bar damage) I’d always suspected WAS them….one of those things that makes you go “hmmm….”. In any case, we just keep to ourselves anyway, and will leave them alone and hope they show us the same courtesy, but we’ll also keep our eyes open, too; doesn’t hurt to be safe….and maybe install those security cameras, afterall… 🙂
A Facebook friend sent me this. It says it all! How tragic it is that society today cares more about protecting endangered species and other animals, the earth, environment, trees, etc. than it does about human life. How much sense does it make they say it’s “cruel” to eat meat, or wear fur,for example, but it’s ok to kill an unborn child? HUMAN life s most important and must be protected(incl. with legal rights) and be safeguarded FIRST! A person’s a person no matter how small! – Dr. Suess
