You do not need a parachute to skydive.

You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

TSA Slogans

When at SLC airport on my way home from the mainland recently, I was surprised to feel that I was greeted with hands all over me. I didn’t realize that the people in the longer line were waiting to enter the “safe” full body scanner. Your face is captured before you’re viewed under your clothes. (Maybe they just like to document your face as well as your curves, as some have been shown on the internet.)

The question I have is: Who dissed the successful Israeli method of profiling passengers, which they advised US to do after 9-11?

Political Correctness is just discrimination against the most of US.  ~hepsy

Egyptian Food Pyramid

Have you seen a more sensible food pyramid? Found this on one of the news apps on my  iPad… or maybe it was one of the made-for-iPad blogs. It came from here.
At least we now know the history of the Food Pyramid!

a small cross

TS sent this

When driving to, from, and through Frankenmuth, Michigan, I’m always intrigued with the many small simple crosses in the front yards of the homes we pass by. Those crosses are a statement of support for Frankenmuth’s Christian foundation. Two years ago an atheist living there complained about two crosses on a bridge in town. He requested that they be removed and the town removed them. He then decided that, since he was so successful with that, the city shield should also be changed since it had on it, along with other symbols, a heart with a cross inside signifying the city’s Lutheran beginnings. At that point, the residents decided they had had enough. Hundreds of residents made their opinions known by placing small crosses in their front yards. Seeing this quiet but powerful statement from the community, the man removed his complaint. Those simple crosses remain in those front yards today.

After passing those crosses for two years, it finally hit me that a small cross in millions of front yards across our country could provide a powerful and inspiring message for all Americans passing them every day. I think it might be time to take this idea across America . We have an administration that says “we are not a Christian nation” and everywhere you look the ACLU and others are trying to remove from our history and current lives any reference to God, prayer, or the fact that our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles.

Our administration can’t bring themselves to talk about “radical Muslims or Islamic terrorists” for fear of offending them, but they can talk about Americans “clinging to their guns and their religion”, or insinuate that our own military troops coming home from service overseas might turn into terrorists. The majority of Americans are Christians, why are we letting this happen to us?

IT’S TIME TO STAND UP AND MAKE A STATEMENT. A SMALL QUIET BUT POWERFUL STATEMENT.
IF YOU AGREE, PLACE A SMALL WHITE CROSS IN YOUR FRONT YARD OR GARDEN FOR ALL TO SEE THAT THEY ARE NOT ALONE.

It would be a beautiful thing to see crosses all across America .+++++

My father was an artist. I spent summers earning money by modeling for local artists, and had a fun time!



This is how a woman dedicated to training her body for show can look.

Illegal Cockfight

The Honolulu Police Department received reports of illegal cockfights being held in  the Ewa area and quickly dispatched the infamous Detective Chang to investigate.  He  reported to his sargeant the next morning.  ‘Get tree main groups in da cock fighting hui,’ he began.

‘Good work. Who are they?’ the sargeant asked.

Chang replied confidently, ‘Get haoles, Portagees, and da Syndicate.’

Puzzled, the sergeant asked, ‘So how you wen find dat out in one night?’

‘Wuz easy cuz,’ he replied, ‘I wen Ewa side and watched da cockfight.  Can tell had haoles cuz one duck was entered in da fight.’

The sergeant nodded, ‘But what about da others?’

Chang answered, ‘Well, I figah get Portagees cuz someone wen’ bet on da duck.’

‘Okay,’ said the sergeant, ‘And how you wen know dat da Syndicate was involved?’

‘Da duck wen  win.’
