Ever Feel Like a Speck of Dust? (Hubble pictures put things in focus)
February 5, 2007 07:48

      Guess what? You ARE a speck of dust, compared to the vastness of the universe. Looking at these pictures is kinda overwhelming, like, if the size of the universe is unfathomable, then why bother even trying to explore it? (The Rest of the Story...)

"Tanka pattern"

Oh, please, tell me please-
The name of the lovely lass.
Her charming smile,-
Angelic face and blue eyes,-
Captured my heart in a flash.

I was enchanted-
In a twinkling of an eye.
I was attracted-
When I sensed her concoction;
Enthralled by her magic potion.

Oh please, I'm begging-
You to tell me where she lives.
So I could send-
Her roses and chocolates.
Oh, please Alfie, tell me please!

From A Mother With Love, From the Foothills…

      

Dear Bubba,

I am writing this letter slow because I know that you can't read fast.

Just so ya know, we don't live where we used to. Your dad read in the paper that most accidents happen within 20 miles from your home, so we moved. I won't be able to send you the address, as the last family that lived here took the house numbers when they left so that they wouldn't have to change their address.

This place is real nice. It even has a washing machine. I'm not sure if it works too well though. Last week I put a load in, pulled the chain, and haven't seen them since.

The weather isn't too bad here, it only rained twice last week. The first time it rained for three days and the second time for four days. How's the weather where you are? The coat you wanted me to send you, your Uncle Steve said it would be a little too heavy to mail, so we cut the buttons off and put them in the pockets.

We got another bill from the funeral home. They said if we don't make the last payment on Grandma's grave, up she comes. And Grandpa locked his keys in the car yesterday. We were worried because it took him two hours to get me and Shelby out.

Your sister had a baby this morning but I haven't found out whether it's a boy or girl, so I don't know if you're an aunt or an uncle. If the baby is a girl, your sister is going to name it after me, she's going to call it Mom.

A little bit of tragedy to report: Uncle Pete fell in a whiskey vat last week. Some man tried to pull him out but he fought them off and drowned. We had him cremated and he burned for three days. Then, three of your friends went off a bridge in a pick-up truck. Ralph was driving. He rolled down the window and swam to safety. Your two friends, Sonny and Leroy were in the back. They drowned because they couldn't get the tailgate down.

There isn't much more news at this time. Nothing much has happened, son.

Love, Your Ma

PS, I was going to send you some money but the envelope was already sealed.


Is it Love You're Feeling, or Just Infatuation?
February 13, 2007 08:11

       

This is an old classic column from the "queen of advice for the lovelorn", Ann Landers. It is one of her best essays, quietly timeless advice for a couple at any stage of relationship.

"Infatuation is instant desire - one set of glands calling to another. Love is friendship that has caught fire. It takes root and grows, one day at a time.

Infatuation is marked by a feeling of insecurity. You are excited and eager but not genuinely happy. There are nagging doubts, unanswered questions, little bits and pieces about your beloved that you would just as soon not examine too closely. It might spoil the dream.

Love is the quiet understanding and mature acceptance of imperfection. It is real. It gives you strength and grows beyond you - to bolster your beloved. You are warmed by his presence, even when he is away. Miles do not separate you. You have so many wonderful little films in your head that you keep replaying. But near or far, you know he is yours and you can wait.

Infatuation says, "We must get married right away. I can't risk losing him." Love says, "Be patient. Don't panic. Plan your future with confidence."

Infatuation has an element of sexual excitement. Whenever you are together you hope it will end in intimacy. Love is not based on sex. It is the maturation of friendship that makes sex so much sweeter. You must be friends before you can be lovers.

Infatuation lacks confidence. When he's away, you wonder if he is cheating. Sometimes you check.

Love means trust. You are calm, secure and unthreatened. He feels your trust, and it makes him even more trustworthy.

Infatuation might lead you to do things you will regret, but love never steers you in the wrong direction.

Love is elevating. It lifts you up. It makes you look up. It makes you think up. It makes you a better person than you were before."

True Love is Forever...
February 14, 2007 07:17

Have you seen this photo? We saved it for Valentine's day, to commemorate lover's day with you in a touching and appropriate manner.

       

Last week, in Northern Italy, during excavation for a new factory building, ancient artifacts were uncovered, turning the site into an archaeological dig.

There, among flint tools, arrowheads and a knife, archaeologists unearthed two skeletons locked in a tender eternal embrace. The remains appear to have been from the Neolithic period, and are 5,000 to 6,000 years old. The site is outside Mantua, just 25 miles south of Verona, the romantic city where Shakespeare set the star-crossed tale of “Romeo and Juliet.”

The pair are believed to have been a man and a woman and are thought to have died young, as their teeth were found intact, said Elena Menotti, the archaeologist who led the dig. "Experts will now study the artifacts and the skeletons to determine the burial site’s age and how old the two were when they died", she said.

What a find! Although scientists feel it has "more of an emotional than a scientific value", it sure lights up your imagination, doesn't it?

Who were they? What sudden and tragic event caused them both to die young, and together? Was it another Romeo and Juliet double suicide? Scientists have already theorized that the man may have died first, and then the woman sacrificed to keep him company in his journey to the afterlife. Jeez!

DNA testing may determine whether the two were related, but will not fill in the rest of the story for us. Alas, we likely will never know the true story behind this most moving display of true love.

Happy Valentine's Day, Ya'll!


The Morning After...After the 'I do' comes the true love

       Ahh, Valentine's Day. The scent of chocolate perfumes the air. Yesterday was the day that attentive men and women felt obligated to express their love because retailers suckered them into it. (The Rest of the Story...)


Movie Review... Ghost Rider
February 16, 2007 07:52

      

Ghost Rider, starring Nicolas Cage, opens today in theaters. About a superstar motorcycle stunt rider who made a deal with the devil in order to save his father and secure the safety of his true love. Warning: this is not Academy Award material, nor is it a Chick Flick. Go see it just for the fun of seeing Nicolas Cage on a burning motorcycle, with flames shooting from his head.

Read this except from a movie review in the Montreal Film Journal:

"If you're expecting no more than B-movie fun, "Ghost
Rider" does deliver on that level. It's often hilarious!
Apparently Nic Cage rewrote much of his part, and I can
buy that. The director had already put quite a bit of humor
in his Daredevil, but some of the most absurd touches
could only come from an eccentric mind like Cage's. He
has Johnny Blaze eating jelly beans from martini glasses,
watching lots of TV (including videos of kung fu chimps),
compulsively listening to The Carpenters ("Shh, you're
stepping on Karen."), drinking coffee straight from the pot.
... And when Johnny turns into Ghost Rider, Cage gets to
go even crazier, screaming and grimacing "Wicker Man"
-style while his head catches on fire! "Ghost Rider" is a
pretty bad movie, but part of me wants to recommend it
anyway, if only for all that hilarious Nic Cage overacting!"

      

***Sounds like an unintentional comedy! Frankly, we'd rather go rent something more decent for a cozy night in. Find something from our stacks of celluloid: Love Flicks, pop some popcorn, and relax!

Movie Review: The Astronaut Farmer
February 23, 2007 09:53

     

Hey, we've got a fun movie for you that opens today!
The Astronaut Farmer, with Billy Bob Thornton, Bruce Willis, and Bruce Dern

This is a great fantasy yarn about an ex-astronaut-trainee who left NASA to save the family farm. What does he do in his spare time? Why, he builds a rocket in his barn! (Just couldn't give up his dream of making it into space). Trouble begins when he tries to order up 10, 000 pounds of rocket fuel.

In steps the bad guys... None other than the Department of Homeland Security! There are some sobering thoughts among this make-believe tale of pursuit of the American Dream. Oh, just give it a rest! Turn your brain off for a couple hours and go see The Astronaut Farmer.... pure entertainment, pleasant escapism...

Life's Journey...
February 27, 2007 08:50

     

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely and in
a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways,
totally worn out, shouting "Holy shit, what a ride!"
