Hi Belie, I have been suspicious of all that since it happened. That big one a couple days ago in the middle of the ocean, Solomon Islands, and there were two small ones in the Madrid Fault Area today..Arkansas and Missouri. Don't know if it is pole shift, HAARP, fracking, or what for sure. I keep an eye on it. lol
Hope you had a great weekend.
The earth is going through a period of great upheaval no doubt. I have been too, have had the flu and strep throat at the same time.
so true

Horses are smarter than people give them credit for. The horse I recently put down was like that. He used to take off his racing leg bandages when left unattended in his stall. Not only did he remove them without tearing them, he deposited them in his empty feed bucket. He could get out of his fitted horse blanket without ever opening a buckle or tie, and he accomplished this without tearing his "winter coat." On one occasion, hubby was going to take him on a training mile before a race. When hubby was putting on winter gloves, "Friendly" took off for his mile--at a clip much quicker than he was supposed to be trained. He went the prescribed number of trips around the training track, then pulled himself up at the barn, and waited to be unharnessed and led back to his stall. Hubby said that "he left his race on the training track, and probably do poorly for the actual race."
Well, old Friendly apparently knew what he was doing and won his race, improving on his race time by 2 full seconds. Guess the horse knew what he was doing, and only humored his humans. True story. I really miss that old boy, but he is at rest in our far pasture. He was good to us in his racing days, and we tried to make it up to him during his long retirement. He would have been 27 years old this spring. He gave us some wonderful memories.
I know all about this , and the love one fills for them.
so true

Our horses are like our children. I have one I raised and she would sleep in the house if I would let her. Horses are healers, they heal alot within you. I have seen that for a fact. To this day the one I have raised will lay her head on my shoulder and lay in my lap. She even stands and lets me curl her hair for shows..lol A really neat sight. Yall have a good day , I might just saddle up and ride them today, instead of going to work.. No better hit the road.. Yall be safe..

Good morning, peeps. I've been up since 4 A.M. doing the wash. The little guy goes to private school and has to wear a uniform. I woke up in the wee hours of the morning, and decided to set out his pants and shirt for school. To my chagrin, I found that all were in the wash basket. So there you have it. Been washing clothes. It's not my idea of a nice night. May get some shut eye later in the day.

<quoted text> Thanks for the info. I had figured the nuclear disaster wouldn't go away. If we have levels of radiation here in Ky, the levels are higher in the western U.S. When will we and our children be safe? This is one reason why I abhor nuclear power. Disasters.
Whenever there is a big event, and mainstream news abruptly stops, you can be sure that there is something up. You'll find out what's going on if you do a little digging. That nuclear accident is worse than Chernobyl, and those reactors have not reached cold shut down yet. Radiation is cumulative. It will affect the babies first. Then in a few years, the cancer rates will start to increase in adults.

I should have known someone would try to make something sexual out of my post about laying carpet. Contrary to popular belief, there are other things in this world besides their one-track subject matter.

Hello Friends! It's been a few days. Let me start by saying Thanks.

Something left me in June 2011(something within) and now I am trying to get it back. I'll stop posting about my little soap opera, other than to say I am now a bit better of a person. Now no less than two aspects of this life are where they should be.

I believe you guys share some kind of love on this thread, and you threw a little bit of it my way. And some great thoughts and words of wisdom.

So here's this. If one thinks he/she is coming up short in the love and loving department one might realize that you have to find yourself spreading it around first...maybe a lot.

And one more. One may think they are breaking down. Then one may find,especially
if at least one YEARS LONG weakness fades from his life, HE WAS REALLY BUILDING UP.

I've heard carpet laying is not an easy job. Doesn't it have to be stretched with a machine? I know, it can be quite a few to have an independent dealer install it. Most Folks I know, hehe me for instance, try to do all the work themselves. It's cloudy here in eastern KY. Hope Ol Arthur leaves you alone.

Carpet can be stretched using a flat board as a "knee Knocker" driving small nails through the board protruding about a quarter inch and wrapping the board with rags to protect the knees. No machine is necessary. Then it can be shoved back under the base boards with a coal chisel. It is in our heritage (and I have passed down) to never hire anything done. We pay for no labor and very few machine rentals.

In addition to our normal careers (mine retired), I and my grandson are decent carpenters and vinyl siding and metal roofing installers. My oldest has an office management job, yet is a qualified electrician and mechanic, The youngest son is a trucker but could easily be a plumber or install and repair HVAC. My nephew works in hydraulics and can weld metal. I have taught those boys (men) to take vocational training as well as college. None of us have ever been unemployed for even a day over the past 50 years.

Sounds like my Dad, AW. Now, he likes to put up buildings and work on vehicles. Said he's been chasing bees since 14. He was born in '51 into a poor family. I remember when I was little we'd eat squirrel because railroad wages weren't all that much. It's great to hear that you taught those men well. It sure will save them money in the long run. Self reliance is very important in any economy;)

The key to avoiding unemployment is to be versatile. One may not always earn what they think they deserve, but it is survivable. Too often kids go to college and focus on just one career choice and graduate and the market is flooded. Always best to have a "fall back" situation regardless of the economy.

Education is most important, but it is no substitute for ability. I have seen people with Masters Degrees that could not open an umbella without some help. LOL

I have to say that umbrella incident is pretty bad. When I was growing up with four bros. & two sis. it was fend for yourself. We learned early to wash dishes, vacuum, make the beds, weed eat, use a push mower. Our water came from a hand drawn well. Mom would use creek water for the laundry. A toilet meant sitting outside house. The main thing we learned was respect. My Dad could teach social services a thing or two about child discipline. He once threatened to stick my devilish bros. face in a cow pie. LOL. He was bad.LOL. But sure got his message across.
Just thinking

I had a warden for a mother, never knew when to quit with the whip. Maybe I needed social services because she put dad in the corner.
