16 Sept 2018 DNA brainstorm in the numbers and drawing thinking about the Anjikuni Lake Mystery

Hope there is something interesting here for you.  I am sharing this because I’m sure I’m not the only person who has thought about this stuff lol.  The drawing here is what I did after watching something on YouTube about the mysterious disappearance of Inuit Eskimo’s from the shores of Anjikuni Lake in Canada.   I did some surface looking at this with the numbers and it basically came to 30 missing men, women and children for me:

How many living organisms live on the human body?

Researchers hope the advance marks an important step towards understanding how microbes help make humans human. The human body contains about 100 trillion cells, but only maybe one in 10 of those cells is actually — human. The rest are from bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms. Jun 13, 2012

How many species of bacteria live in the human body?

It is estimated that 500 to 1,000 species of bacteria live in the human gut but belong to just a few phyla: Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes dominate but there are also Proteobacteria, Verrumicrobia, Actinobacteria, Fusobacteria and Cyanobacteria.

Do bugs live on your body?

Many microscopic bugs and bacteria live on our skin and within our various nooks and crannies. Almost anywhere on (or even within) the human body can be home to these enterprising bugs. Bugs affect us in a variety of ways: some bad, such as infections, but many good.Apr 24, 2014

How much of the human body is human?

We now understand that humans are 90% microbial but only 10% human. The average human has over 100 trillion microbes in and on their body, and many of the latest discoveries are challenging previously held ideas about good and bad bacteria.

6 Sept 2018 A tribute in music (Dream)

Hello to you.  Hope this finds you well.  No drawings today – we were blessed with rain.  I’d rather have that then my drawings any day!

I had an interesting dream in the midst of a not very restful night.

It was a dream about random people gathered in a theater paying tribute to a musician by playing one of the musicians songs together.  Each person was playing their own instrument.  It was a short song.  The music was projected on a large screen so everyone could see it to play.

I kind of remembered the song this morning – sounded like something that would be fun for a brass band to play!  It’s gone now, but I enjoyed it for a while this morning.  I think that would a lovely way for ordinary folks to pay tribute to a musician!  Just show up with whatever instrument you play, put the music up and read, set go!  Some of us don’t read music proficiently so we get to just appreciate what we see and hear….may be hum along.  I like to do that.

I couldn’t resist riddling this out in the numbers to see what would come up.

When I see a number go back to 1, it means self to me.  For example music goes back to 1 and that’s pretty  much how music is.  You choose a genre/sound of music you like and you enjoy it.  It doesn’t matter if anyone else does because when you are enjoying it, it’s for you.

The reason I divide a number that doesn’t come out straight away by 2 is thinking of light and shadow, the two sides of ourselves that are employed when we analyze a person, place or thing.  Perspective has two sides and we are biologically incapable of perceiving anything the exact same way.

When  I see a 3 cycle come up, it’s like life, death, rebirth or just the cycles of life.  A lot of times when I like a song, it’s pretty much for life but it can go in cycles.  One day I’ll like the song, the next I don’t but give it a couple days, weeks or even years and I might enjoy it again sort of thing.

When I see a 9 cycle come up, it makes me think of the phrase, “it’s not easy” or doesn’t come naturally as a cycle.  For example high fructose corn syrup = 288/18/9 cycle (the body doesn’t know what to do with this stuff.)

When I see numbers associated with my name or birth date, a personal flag goes up – 02/13/1968.  If I riddle the date Zero Two One Three One Nine Six Eight = 389/20.  If I riddle the date out like Zero Two Thirteen Nineteen Sixty- Eight = 453/12.  If I riddle the date out like Thirteen February Nineteen Sixty- Eight = 427/13.  For fun = 389 + 453 + 427 = 1269/99/18/9 cycle!  20 + 12 +13 = 45/9 cycle.  No matter how you compute it, 9 factors in and is a pretty accurate look at my life.

So here is what came up with the  theme of my dream – what do you see?

https://www.gematrix.org

A Tribute in Music = 184/13/4/2/1

Tribute = 95/14/5 divided by 2 = 2.5 = 7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

Music = 65/11/2/1

Hear = 32/5 divided by 2 = 2.5 = 7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

Listen = 79/16/7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

Play = 54/9 divided by 2 = 4.5 = 9 divided by 2 = 4.5 = 9 cycle 

Sing = 49/13/4/2/1 

Song = 55/10/5 divided by 2 = 2.5 = 7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1  (kind of how it goes when we are deciding if we like a song)

Write = 75/12/3 divided by 2 = 1.5 = 6 divided by 2 = 3 cycle

Write Music = 140/5 divided by 2 = 2.5 = 7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1 (looks the process of writing a song)

Play Music = 119/11/2/1 

Sing a song = 105/6/3 divided by 2 = 1.5 = 6 divided by 2 = 3 cycle

Play a song = 110/2/1

Hear a song = 88/16/7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

Listen to a song = 170/8/4/2/1

Love Music = 119/11/2/1

Music (65) + Sing (49) + Play Music (119) + Play a song (110) + Listen to a song (170) + Love Music (119) = 632/11/2/1 (632 is basically love music)

Hear (32) + Listen (79) + Play (54) + Song (55) + Write (75) = 295/16/7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

Write music (140) + Sing a song (105) + Hear a song (88) = 333/9 divided by 2 = 4.5 = 9 cycle 

632 + 295 = 927/18/9 divided by 2 = 4.5 = 9 cycle

632 – 295 = 337/13/4/2/1

632 + 295 + 333 = 1260/9 divided by 2 = 4.5 = 9 cycle

Hard (31) work (67) = 98/17/8/4/2/1

Music (65) Business (108) = 173/11/2/1

Business = 108/9 divided by 2 = 4.5 = 9 cycle 

98 + 173 = 271/10/1

Dream (41) Theme (51) = 92/11 divided by 2 = 5.5 = 10 divided by 2 = 5 divided by 2 = 2.5 = 7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1  or just 2/1

Indian Blanket Flower. ‘Gaillardia pulchella’. The Indian Blanket Flower also known as the Firewheel or the Sundance flower, is the official state wild flower of the State of Oklahoma.

Gaillardia pulchella = 164/11/2/1
Indian Blanket Flower = 195/16/7
Firewheel = 91/10/1
Sundance flower = 160/7
Flower = 79/16/7
Plant = 63/9 cycle
Living Being = 110/2/1
Open Field = 86
Planet = 68
Gift from God = 120/3 cycle (what it is for me)

 

 

23 Aug 2018 Drawings (brain meditation) and Creed of Peace (Ralph M. Lewis)

Hello to you.  I hope this finds you well wherever and whenever you are as you visit here.  The third photo has a drawing I wasn’t sure I wanted to share.  It’s what I was talking about yesterday (the 9/11 bit).  It’s what came to me when I was thinking about it.  We can’t change what has already been done, we can only move forward and try to avoid making the same mistakes.  It’s hard for me to stay in today sometimes.  My sweet Aunt called the other day and reminded me to do that.  I just wanted to give context to the drawing.  Thank you for the visit!

https://www.worldprayers.org/

Spin of the Prayer Wheel brought me this message; I’ve never seen it before today:

Creed of Peace – 35/21/30 = 86 (last two of year I was born in reverse)

I am guilty of war when I proudly exercise
my intelligence to the disadvantage of my fellow man.

I am guilty of war when I distort other’s opinions,
which differ from my own.

I am guilty of war when I show disregard
for the rights and properties of others.

I am guilty of war when I covet what another has honestly acquired.

I am guilty of war when I seek to maintain my superiority of position
by depriving others of their opportunity of advancement.

I am guilty of war if I imagine my kin and myself to be a privileged people.

I am guilty of war if I believe a heritage entitles me
to monopolize resources of nature.

I am guilty of war when I believe other people must think and live as I do.

I am guilty of war when I make success in life solely dependent
upon power, fame, and riches.

I am guilty of war when I think the minds of people should
be regulated by force, rather than by reason.

I am guilty of war when I believe the God I conceive is
the one others must accept.

I am guilty of war when I think that a land of a man’s birth
must necessarily be the place of his livelihood.

The true articles of peace cannot be legislated but are drawn up in the
personal aspirations and conduct of the millions of little people. When all
men will frankly perceive their common dependence, an understanding will
emerge that will transcend the barriers of time and space, creed and race.

Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
  (Redirected from Rosicrucian Order, AMORC)

Official Worldwide Emblem of the Rosicrucian Order

A Rosicrucian Master’s Cross, from the AMORC Rosicrucian Library in San Jose

The Ancient and Mystical Order Rosæ Crucis (AMORC), also known as the Rosicrucian Order, is the largest Rosicrucian organization in the world. It has various lodges, chapters and other affiliated bodies throughout the globe, operating in 19 different languages.

AMORC claims an association with a “perennial philosophy“, often referred to as “The Primordial Tradition“. The Order further states that it is heir and custodian of the “Rose-Croix” of the past, thereby making it the oldest existing Traditional Fraternity and a modern-day manifestation of the ‘Rosicrucian Fraternity’ of old, which is believed by some to have originated in the traditions of the Ancient Egyptian Mystery schools. The ancient Mysteries are said to have been preserved through the millennia by closed secret societies until the early years of 17th Century Europe. At that point, according to AMORC internal mythology, the time was right for the existence of this body of secret knowledge to become open, i.e. revealed, to the world, in the form of the Rosicrucian manifestos. Famous seventeenth century Rosicrucian Michael Maier described the origins of Rosicrucianism as “Egyptian, Brahmanic, derived from the Mysteries of Eleusis and Samothrace, the Magi of Persia, the Pythagoreans, and the Arabs.”[1] Several of his other works also allude to the mysterious origins of the Rosicrucians.[2]

Today, AMORC is regarded as representing an “open cycle” of the ancient Rosicrucian tradition, its existence being a “reactivation” of Rosicrucian teaching in the United States, with previous Rosicrucian colonies in the United States having become dormant.

AMORC presents itself as a worldwide philosophical and humanistic, non sectarian and apolitical fraternal order devoted to “the study of the elusive mysteries of life and the universe.”[3] It is also open to both men and women of legal adult age (18 years old in most countries) regardless of their various religious persuasions.

13 Aug 2018 32 Years, school’s back in session, dreams and owls for Zarbakht

Hello!  It’s the first day of school for us here in Alvarado TX and I can already hear the train of traffic starting behind the house.  Must be some new folks driving to school now – lots of stereo thumping and bass going by.   It’s hard to get motivated to go back to school!  Even as long ago as that’s been for me, I still remember the feeling.  Kind of the same feeling you get on Sunday  night before having to go back to work on Monday!  “Do I have to go?!”

I was hoping the city would fix the road problem before all this started but they weren’t able to I guess.  Between the extreme heat and now the rain and wet I guess it wasn’t possible.  Every once in a while we hear a loud thump that sounds like thunder as someone who doesn’t know the divet is there hits it.  The dogs are reasonable to freak out about it!

Personal Milestone:

It was 32 years ago today that I joined the Air Force.  I was medically retired from being a Personnelist (basically I flew a desk aka I was a secretary) in September 2002.  Man I’m getting old but just in numbers lool!  I don’t miss that part of my life but I will always miss many of the people I had the honor to work with.  It was a great experience to work with people from all walks of life and not care about our differences.  We were a team and in many cases close like family.  I think of these people often and hope wherever and whenever life has taken them that they are well.

Dreams:

Last night –

Had a couple of interesting dreams.  I’ve been having a lot of them lately.  The first one was about being a bird and flying.  I flew into a wood where there was a group of people gathered.  A woman was telling me to follow the currents.  I veered off course but then I saw a flock of birds and started to follow them.  I ended up near a woman who changed into a leopard cat.  Something about her car getting stuck.  I remember seeing the tail lights of a car.  Just before I woke from this dream I flew into a brush of nettles – a thorny bushes – and couldn’t find my way out.

The dream before I woke up was interesting.  I was trying out for a sports team.  I was a tomboy and they could tell.  Then I remember being back stage wearing a jacket and had a cigar or something in my mouth.  I was confident even with not knowing what song I was going to sing.  I went out to a room full of people and started singing about unity and freedom like a black woman might, a very big and powerful voice.  The crowd wasn’t sure about me!

Nap yesterday –

12 Aug 2018 – What came to me in my brief time out chalking yesterday. This would be a lovely fountain!

I dreamt I was doing some exercise routine like aerobics outside in the sunshine in front of a tall white house.  I could see someone in the top floor window moving/watching me.  It wasn’t “me” in the dream.  The way I could tell it wasn’t me was I could see my thighs/knees/legs were very thick and muscular.  My skin was reddish brown.  I was moving very fast, effortless almost like a child might.  My hands were smaller.  I woke up from this dream hearing Native American singing set to very fast paced electronic dance music.

Changing gears:  OWLS! (owls are symbolic of wisdom and learning – which is perfect for folks going back to school today!)

Yesterday I commented on a post by a new WordPress friend Zarbakht.  She had shared about her kitty Margo not feeling well and in one of the pictures Margo was sleeping with a Ty Beanie Boo Owl like I have in my collection.  Well when I mentioned this, she was very enthusiastic for me to share more about these owls of mine.  She apparently is very much in love with owls!  I’m not sure if she thought I had real owls, as some people do so I clarified for her the only owls in my possession were of the stuff variety.  However, my friend Cindy Knoke (https://cindyknoke.com/?s=owls) is an amazing nature photographer and has captured the image of REAL owls in the wild and near her property!

Anyhew – I love owls too.  This is for you Zarbakht!

7 Aug 2018 We have to fix this – together

Hello.  Just a quick visit.  I did a bit of drawing this morning.  I seem to be on a theme of sorts with the “seats” of power.  The one I’m sharing was me imagining a being outside of our galaxy watching over this ol’ blue dot.  The other drawing is imagining the forces of light, shadow and the in between cradling our burning earth like a child while it screams for help.

These forces of energy are powerless to help fix what is happening all over the world right now.  We are literally burning!  The fix will have to come from all of us.  Unless I missed it, no one seems to be coming to save us from this mess we are currently in.  As much as I’d like a group of Superhero’s to come along and fix all of this, all that is just a big screen distraction from reality.  I think we are on our own!

Denial, obstruction, fear, greed and acting like nothing is happening will not make all this go away.  I feel like there are many who are playing “kick the can” with this.  What is happening to this planet is not “normal.”  I’ve been here 50 years and have watched the acceleration of this global climate change every year.  It feels like things are spiraling faster.  We don’t have time to keep putting this off to another generation.

31 July 2018 Todays chalk drawings

Hi there.  How is your present moment going?  I hope everything is well for you and if it’s not that you have great support systems to help you navigate your way through whatever you are facing today.  Sometimes, and I am terrible about this, you have to set aside your pride and ask for help.  Sometimes the first step is just admitting you even need help at all….that’s a big first step.  I’ve had to do that one a few times for different things.

The drawings today aren’t anything spectacular.  I decided to draw out that darn dream I had last night that was so vivid for me.  My dark green pickup rendering sucks balls but I’ve never been that good at drawing cars! Lol.  Anyhew – sending you positive vibes and an invisible hug across the miles.

 

30 July 2018 What a World

Hello.  How are you doing in your present moment?  I hope you are doing well…..so many are not.  Lots of fires, earthquakes, flooding and other manners of calamity going on all around us these days.

What are you doing to help yourself navigate these times?  It’s been harder for me lately but I have it easy compared to most everyone else I know.

There are people all over wearing multiple hats.  People in my neighborhood and beyond that are working so hard for themselves and their families – trying to be good people in this world.  In our midst so many hero’s!  In the above, middle and below of the strata of our existence so many trying to do their best in spite of all the obstructions put before them!

My thoughts, prayers and love go out to all our flesh and blood hero’s of today.  The police and fire departments, the hospice workers, the nurses, the doctors, the first responders, our veterans and those leaders of the many positive walks of faith at work in their churches, temples and communities.   A few may fall short and disappoint us, but most all of them try so hard!  It takes very special people to answer the call of service before self.

Every person on this earth, trying to make the world a better place each day is a hero in my book!

7:58 am have to pause – as I’m writing I’m hearing the patter of rain!  Oh thank goodness!  Living here in North Texas you just don’t take rain in the summer for granted!  Imagining all those cracks in the yards getting filled!  The skin of the earth getting some healing balm!

This morning on my Facebook I was reminded that I had shared this post from a friend a year ago.  I have tried to find the source book it’s from and haven’t found it yet.  I want to read the rest of the book lool!   When I read this it made me think that no matter what your vision or path to the God of your understanding or in some cases no God at all, when you were manifested a seed was planted within you…..a seed planted with love.  I know some would say their origin story doesn’t feel anything like that.  Way too many have an origin story rooted in violence….but yet you are here….you have a purpose and there is a place for you.   You just have to find it and there are many to help with this quest!   I hope you choose a positive path.  Remember, life is all about choices!

The Ferguson Fire continues to grow– consuming more than 800 acres on Sunday. As of Monday morning, it is 56,659 acres and is 30-percent contained.

Firefighters are working to secure the southeast quadrant of the fire to keep it from spreading into Yosemite National Park and the more populated areas south of the park.

Residents can expect to see increased smoke during the next few days as these fire operations continue.

While the Ferguson Fire continues its slow growth, those working the fire lines are also in mourning. Another one of their own was killed while on the job fighting the flames in Mariposa County.

Brian Hughes, 33, lost his life when he and his crew were conducting a tactical firing operation on the east side of the fire. During that operation, he was struck by a tree. He was treated on scene, but died before he could make it to the hospital.

This comes just 16 days after Cal Fire Heavy Equipment Operator Braden Varney was killed on the job.

Dozens lined the streets of the town of Mariposa and Merced Sunday to pay their final respects to Hughes. A procession led the firefighter’s body from the Mariposa Airport to the Stanislaus County Coroners Office.

Fire personnel escorted his body through the city of Merced.

More Than A Dozen Indigenous Women Went Missing In Montana In 2018

Jul 20, 2018
Originally published on July 23, 2018 9:18 am

Yet another Indigenous woman has gone missing in the Mountain West.

Jermaine Charlo disappeared near a grocery store in Missoula, Montana last month. The 23-year-old is the 13th native woman to go missing in the state since January.

“Each day that goes by is more concerning that her welfare is compromised or she’s in a situation that’s not a good one for her,” said detective Guy Baker of the Missoula Police Department.

Native American women face some of the highest violence and sexual assault rates in the country, but there is no nationwide tally of the number of missing or murdered Indigenous women in the U.S. because the Federal Bureau of Investigation isn’t really tracking it.

I hope this finds you well in mind, body and spirit as you visit here.  I’m in the ocean and in the woods today lool!  Going to try and go back to bed and see if I can get some sleep.  I seem to be experiencing a bit of insomnia which is uncommon for me.  In talking to several other people, this condition seems to be going around!

I hope no one minds me sharing this Interesting article.  I am grateful for CBS News for posting it.  Sometimes these positive stories get overlooked in all the negative “b.s” that usually permeates the headlines.  This morning I actually woke up with it on my mind!  I have wondered for the longest time if this type of thing was ever going to be done.  I have wondered why we aren’t doing autopsies on falling trees to find out their stories so we can do more to preserve them.  Looks like they are actually doing this now:

Mapping the genome of redwoods

Our liberties and traditions are rooted in history, as are some of our natural monuments along our West Coast. Lee Cowan reports our Cover Story:
Deep in one of California’s few remaining old-growth forests sat an oddity, popular with tourists since the 1880s: a giant sequoia so giant a tunnel was carved in its trunk.

Last year that tree toppled over during a storm. It was estimated to be around a thousand years old.

It – and others redwoods like it – are a testament to how much we are fascinated by these ancient evergreen, but it’s also a reminder of how much we’ve abused them.

“It looked like the redwoods were a limitless resource, that we could never possibly cut all of them down,” said Ranger Alex Tabone. “We needed those for houses and lumber camps, and mine shaft tunnel shore-up poles.”

It’s been a park since 1902, ever since a photographer named Andrew P. Hill led the first of its kind conservation charge to protect these giants – like what’s now called the Father of the Forest tree.

“It was probably only going to be another six months to a year before all of these old-growth trees were standing in right now, would have been gone,” said Tabone.

While those trees were saved, other old growth groves were not so lucky. In a 1965 CBS News documentary, our own Charles Kuralt reported on the rush to turn some of the last remaining redwood forests either into lumber or to clear them out of the way to make room for a highway.

“A hundred years ago the great original Redwood forest covered two million acres along the California coast,” Kuralt said, “but more than two-thirds of the virgin redwood trees are gone.”

Their loss was lamented even then. One woman told CBS News, “The more you can preserve of this, the better. I don’t think that the world needs any more freeways. Pretty soon you’re just going to end up with a bunch of roads with no place to go on ’em.”

The final tally: 95% of California’s original Redwood forest was logged, wiped clean, leaving only giant stumps as reminders of what had stood here for so long.

And it’s not as if threat is entirely over. Even today, only about a quarter of the coast redwood habitat is protected from commercial logging and development.

Those that remain stand as cathedrals of nature. Some have been here long before Columbus landed in the Americas, and tower some 30 stories tall.

Cowan asked, “What’s it like when you’re here and you see someone that’s never been in a redwood forest before to come here and see this?”

“That’s the best, that is the best,” replied Sam Hodder, president and CEO of the non-profit Save the Redwoods League.

“What do they say?”

“Usually it’s something along the lines of ‘Aaaahhhhhh my God!” he laughed.

His organization’s founders started buying up forest land a hundred years ago, but much of it is younger forests that aren’t maturing as big or as fast as some conservationists would like to see.

“We’re working with redwood forests that have been clear cut multiple times, and are growing back with such a density of stems, that they’re crowding each other out,” Hodder said. “It becomes a thicket of spindly trees that don’t get enough sunlight, that don’t get enough water. … There’s too much competition.”

So, there’s a subtle shift underway from forest conservation to forest restoration – which includes one idea that may have you scratching your heads: logging.

Over the next five years, Save the Redwoods League will be working to thin over 10,000 acres of smaller trees in order to give the remaining redwoods more space, more nutrients, and more light – in order to grow faster.

“Just like in a garden where you prune to accelerate the growth of the dominant plants, you need to thin,” said Hodder.,

But figuring out which of these precious trees stay and which ones go is no easy decision.

“We treat all the trees like they’re the same, but they’re really, really not,” said League scientist Emily Burns. She and University of California at Davis professor David Neale are trying to unlock the genetic secrets of some of the oldest living things on the planet.

Cowan asked, “So, as old as they are, and as iconic as they are, we don’t really know that much about them?”

“They’re the strong silent type,” Burns said. “And so we have to use science to help decode what’s going on with these trees.”

Last year in two labs – one at UC Davis, the other at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore – they began the complex task of mapping the redwood genome, to uncover Nature’s blueprint that is as unique to every tree as our own genetic makeup is to us.

“You have to have a parts lists to understand whether anything is the same or different than it was before,” said Neale. “The parts list for redwoods did not exist.”

“It is a daunting task though, right?”

“Yeah, we won’t be able to do it overnight, you know? I mean it might take a few years, but it’s achievable.”

We as humans have three billion pairs of DNA – pretty complicated. But the coast redwood has some 30 billion base pairs.

“But I thought we were the most complex organisms on Earth?” asked Cowan.

“Well, no, you should rethink that!” Neale laughed.

It all starts with the redwood’s cones – and the seeds embedded in them, high up in the canopy, where someone has to make their way all the way up and pluck them off by hand. It’s from the seeds where the DNA is extracted, one scalpel cut at a time.

Millions of little pieces of DNA, the chemical building blocks of life, are all sequenced, and then fed into a powerful computer. “Basically you take a puzzle and you throw it on the floor, and now you have to put it back together,” Neale said.

The $2.6 million project has been funded by mostly private donations. When it’s done, scientists will have mapped enough of the genome in enough trees to help identify the kinds that are the most resilient and likely to live a nice long life.

“Within a hundred years we absolutely can set these forests on a healthy trajectory where they have many of the characteristics we’re looking for in old growth,” Burns said.

Call it a nurturing nudge from science, all to save what John Steinbeck once called “ambassadors from another time.”

“When so much of the conversation today is about what we’ve lost – the damming of the world’s waterways, the receding glaciers – we have in the redwoods a sense of hope,” said Hodder. “And we can truly leave the world better than we found it.”

27 June 2018 It’s Hot and CO2 Shortage in Europe

27 June 2018 – This being came out of the chalk this hot afternoon. When I draw someone like this I’m not trying to be creepy. These beings without eyes can see without traditional eyesight. This “man” felt like someone peeking in from an another dimension.

Hello to you.  Hope this finds you well in mind, body and spirit.  It’s hot here in North Texas again, 98 degrees!  I feel terrible for all those who have to be out in this for their jobs!  I am not a fan of summer in Texas at all.  This recent stretch of hot with little to no rain reminds me just how much I dislike it and how much I miss dips in my father-in-laws salt water swimming pool!  He would get the chemistry just right and it was so refreshing to soak when it was hot like this.  When they moved to the country, the in ground pool stayed behind.  I’ve thought more than once about getting one of those kiddie pools but talk myself out of it every time.  Knowing my luck I’d forget to empty it and grow a bunch of mosquitos LOL!!  I’d be miserable from the heat AND itchy bites!

Speaking of water, we just got our water turned back on in the house.  They had to shut it down for a few hours today to clear the lines or something after doing a necessary repair.  May be my toilet will flush properly now lol!  Yay and thank you to the people who fixed it!

There is very little in this life that you can afford to take for granted.  Like running water in your house and also a working car.

We are still waiting for Ford to call us about our car repair.  We made an appointment a week in advance.  They had the car all day Monday and didn’t even look at it or call us to tell us anything.  We are going on the third full day of what we are calling the “hostage situation.”   They finally called us yesterday to let us know what the ransom was going to be and what was going on with the car.  We paid for a bumper to bumper warranty on our Ford Fiesta when we bought it new and the repair is under warranty and yet they still are finding a way to get money out of us.  What the *f—k did I pay for?!  Should of bought another Hyundai!

So getting back to my heart space from being hot and grumpy!  I’m grateful we have water.  I’m grateful we have a place to get the car fixed.  I’m grateful that we even have a car at all.

Gratitude

“Sometimes

 I go about pitying 

 Myself 

 While I am carried by the wind 

 Across the sky.”

I’m grateful not to have to worry about the C02 crisis, I had never heard of such a thing until today!  I can’t imagine what would happen in America if people were faced with the possibility of being without soda and beer this time of year! 

Here’s what you need to know about the big European carbon dioxide shortage

Will your investment portfolio and taste buds survive the big European carbon dioxide shortage of 2018?

Brewers, along with producers of soft drinks, chicken and other packaged foods, have been grappling this month with a hit to CO2 supplies.

It’s coming at a tricky time, as temperatures are climbing and soccer fans are flooding to pubs, bars and restaurants to watch the World Cup.

Here’s what the summertime shortage could mean for shareholders in beverage companies — and for regular thirsty folks.

What the fizz?

Trade publication Gasworld first reported last week about the “worst supply situation to hit the European carbon-dioxide business in decades,” adding that the U.K. appeared to be the hardest-hit country. CO2 is used to put the fizz into beer and soft drinks, and it helps extend the shelf life of poultry and other meat.

Ammonia plants serve as a major source of food-grade CO2 in Europe, as the gas is a byproduct. But ammonia is manufactured for use in fertilizer products, and there is less demand for those from farmers in summer. So such plants regularly shut down in April through June, that industry’s slow period, Gasworld noted.

“What has compounded the situation this year is not only the timing of all the maintenance procedures, but that ammonia market prices have fallen to a low and imports are available from outside of Western Europe,” the trade publication reported.

That has led to European producers prolonging the downtime for ammonia plants. In addition, higher prices for natural gas NGN18, +1.40%  — a major raw material for ammonia manufacture — have crimped profit margins and provided another reason to stay shut down. Technical problems at some plants also helped the situation become “critical,” according to Gasworld.

How long will it last?

The supply crunch looks set to improve, the trade journal reported more recently. “I do not expect to see any severe shortages of beer or fizzy drinks. Some of the big branded breweries have their own CO2 recovery and production, so they can keep on producing beers and lagers,” said John Raquet, the trade publication’s founder and CEO.

How is it affecting companies?

From Coca-Cola Co. KO, -0.53% to Heineken NV HEIA, -0.12% HEINY, -1.15%  , key companies have said they’ve been affected by the CO2 shortage in Europe.

“We are currently responding to an industry-wide issue that is impacting the supply of CO2 in the U.K.,” said Coca-Cola in an email to MarketWatch.

“During this period, we’ve paused some of our production lines for short periods, however there has been no disruption to supply to date and we are continuing to fulfill orders to our customers,” the company added.

Heineken has warned British pubs about low supplies for two of its popular beers — Amstel lager and John Smith’s bitter. “We’ve been informed by our CO2 supplier that they are facing a major issue with supply availability in the U.K.,” a spokeswoman for the Dutch brewer told the Wall Street Journal.

A.G. Barr PLC BAG, -0.58%  , known for the Irn-Bru soft drink that’s popular in Scotland, sounds like it’s managing to weather the shortage. It has confirmed that it is “producing normally” at the moment, as it’s “benefiting from the decision to increase CO2 storage last year,” said Numis Securities analyst Damian McNeela in a recent note.

Another U.K. soft-drinks company, Britvic PLC BVIC, +1.30% has said it will see an impact, but has indicated that it is working closely with suppliers to help mitigate the problem, as well as seeking to secure alternative supplies of CO2, according to McNeela.

What does it mean for affected companies?

The Numis Securities analyst said he’s not changing his predictions for the beverage companies that he covers

“Clearly, this shortage comes as the industry moves into peak seasonal demand and, if the situation remains unresolved, could be a negative catalyst for earnings for all companies in our coverage universe” McNeela said. “However, given that the potential impact is difficult to quantify at the moment, we have made no changes to forecasts.”

One thing that beer drinkers can do

CO2 isn’t used in old-fashioned real ales, which are naturally carbonated in casks or bottles by the live yeast they contain, noted Paul Davies, a Heard on the Street columnist for the Wall Street Journal.

So beer drinkers visiting London might want to try these ales.

“The British are famous for serving up warm, flat beer — or at least you think they are,” wrote Davies, as he also said: “Warmer, flatter beers might be making a big return after all.”

Voices on a paper

I often eavesdrop to random voices roaming in the air. Some leave bruises on my eyelids due to the frequent wiping of tears. They have a saddening picture. Others stimulate endless smiles. Some would like to remain unidentified. All in all, I love to narrate stories of the sad, happy and mysterious voices.
