“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F. Kennedy - - - - - - - - - - - - “Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Our Secret Garden - Summer - July 2011

Ryan and I moved into our home in the summer of 2006, and the yard was one of the things that was in need of major repair.

I have worked on it daily over the span of 5 years,  fertilizing, tilling, re-seeding, and planting to get our yard looking beautiful.

The backyard we call "Our Secret Garden" is a paradise I created for Ryan, the love of my life.

As you watch the slideshow, you will notice a Koi Pond, (something Ryan has always wanted), a pool that I made for myself (because I always need to cool down when I'm working outside during the hot summer months), a small house, (where I do all my crafts and projects; yes, it  has an AC and a heater), a small vegetable garden, a memorial for our pets who have passed away, and finally a hammock to relax after a long hard day.

"I often think it's so surreal, and when I look back at all that I've accomplished in such a short period of time, it only strengthens my belief that I could never do this for anyone other than my man - He is the breath of me.

I chose "Ocean Size Love" by Leigh Nash, because it was a song I remember listening to when Ryan and I moved into our home. The ocean being the largest body of water, and so vast, this is how our love is - Ocean Size!

The Staples Con-artist

This is hilarious as hell.  How many times have you gone to the store after work still dressed in a shirt and tie, and a customer comes up to you and asks, "excuse me, do you know where the duct tape is at?"

It's happened to me Hundreds of times!  

Hell, I sometimes go in my grungy clothes, and they think I'm a Wal-mart mechanic.  Ugh. I hate them! LOL

In either case, Jon Benjamin of Comedy Central decides to have a little fun with this, and OMG, I'm so going to pull this shit at Wal-mart, or maybe a restaurant. LOL. this would be genius!

Post Secret Fridays - Issue 066

PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a postcard.
God isn't the one who is lost; we all are. God is where He always is... we need to stop trying to "find God" and instead rid ourselves of the things that we use to hide from God.

I was so deeply offended that someone would assume that it is one's fault that they feel void of God's presence. It is the worst thing to be told when you are so desperately trying to feel something that once seemed to be ever present, and then one morning is just gone.

Concealed Cruelty!

If you never want to eat pork again, then watch this video.  Seriously, you will never think of asking for Bacon for your burgers, frying them up on breakfast morning, or making bacon-wrapped Jalapenos on July 4th.  

On Wednesday, I saw the video you're about to see, and I haven't been able to write about it for the past few days, because of the images seared into my mind.  It was one of the most horrendous things I have ever seen.  If you thought Human Centipede was bad, or maybe even those terrible movies, like Hostel or Saw; this video puts those movies to shame.  This is real life folks.

Mercy for Animals, an animal rights group, released footage of some pig abuse going on at a company called, "Iowa Select," an industrial farm that supplies pork to Krogers, Safeway and Costco.  In the video you will see workers, snap off tails from little baby piglets and castrate them without any anesthetic.  You'll watch as they toss and throw them around like footballs.  I mean, the video is the most graphic and disgusting thing you'll ever see.  You see abscesses due to infections, and "skin is flayed away from painful-looking open sores, revealing bone, muscle and pus underneath."

I don't even know where to begin with this, but these people need to be held accountable.  I understand life has to go on, but I'm sure there are some more humane ways of handling these pigs.  Pigs are pigs, I know that, but caring for them as they grow up is important.  Proper care can be provided by hiring more people if you have to... it's the economy stupid.

I'm warning you, don't watch this if you have a queasy stomach, and throw-up easily.

Back In The Day - 80's Shorts

Yeah, back in the day, guys would wear short, shorts like this, and everyone would swoon - Trust me,  girls and boys alike.  I mean, what's hotter than watching a guy's muscular thighs, calves, glistening sweat, and those hidden bulges?
