Make a wish!

Just added this photo to previous post!

I am feeling very grateful tonight to be part of the beautiful Universe!

The weather is fabulous, I have good friends, good health and I think wonderful possibilities are on

the horizon! Of course I added some stars to my photo for DRAMA...imagine that and I also have some fabulous wine! (who me?)


"science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind ... a legitimate conflict between science and religion cannot exist." .............Albert Einstein

On Einstein's 72nd birthday in 1951, a photographer was trying to persuade him to smile for the camera, but having smiled for photographers many times that day, Einstein stuck out his tongue instead.

Einstein's three rules of work: 1) Out of clutter find simplicity; 2) From discord find harmony; 3) In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity - Albert Einstein

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result - Albert Einstein

You do not really understand something unless you can explain it to your grandmother - Albert Einstein

Annie..............do you hear that?

Imagination is more important than knowledge - Albert Einstein

OMG! that is....MY ALL TIME FAVORITE QUOTE!!!!!!!!!!


I don't mind living in a man's world as long as I can be a woman in it. ...Marilyn Monroe



OK---------------now to the wish for wood!

OK, this is exactly where the tree fell. It almost landed in the fire pit!

Handy son in law came up with chain saw. He was here Sunday night when we ran out of wood and HE thinks this is awesome!

This is "half way" up my back yard, also the reason I cannot stand to see grass grow! NOW REMEMBER THERE IS ALSO A FRONT YARD!but.........you have to see the new GLITTER SISTER WINE CART!
It is a foldable plastic pull cart spray painted gold and rhinestones glues all over the front. I still have to glue a feather boa around the top and glitter to the sides! Wine rack fits inside perfect!

Don't drink and drive a tractor!

I'm a professional!

THOUGHTS of wood

Thoughts become things!

Sunday I used the last fire wood in the fire pit. I've been "thinking" about getting more. I made a few calls and didn't get an answer. Yesterday late in the afternoon a thunderstorm came though......I heard a LOUD crash of lightening, looked outside and a tree came down right over the fire pit! Hows that for "wishes coming true?"

I'll take a photo tomorrow. Now why didn't I THINK more specific ...."chopped wood!"

Now......Back to my thoughts about seeing WICKED on BROADWAY!

My favorite quotes!

Mae West was WAY ahead of her time…she was born at the end of the Victorian era. (114 years ago!)
She was very wry and witty with her sexual innuendos; she was a scandalous woman in her time. Enjoy!

MAE WEST [1893-1980]
A dame that knows the ropes isn't likely to get tied up.

A hard man is good to find.

A man can be short and dumpy and getting bald but if he has fire, women will like him.

A man in the house is worth two in the street.

A man's kiss is his signature.

A woman in love can't be reasonable - or she probably wouldn't be in love.

Any time you got nothing to do - and lots of time to do it - come on up.

Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly.

Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.

Cultivate your curves - they may be dangerous but they won't be avoided.

Don't keep a man guessing too long - he's sure to find the answer somewhere else.

Every man I meet wants to protect me. I can't figure out what from.

Give a man a free hand and he'll run it all over you.

Good sex is like good bridge. If you don't have a good partner, you'd better have a good hand.

He who hesitates is a damned fool.

He's the kind of man a woman would have to marry to get rid of.

I always say, keep a diary and someday it'll keep you.

I believe in censorship. I made a fortune out of it.

I didn't discover curves; I only uncovered them.

I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

I like restraint, if it doesn't go too far.

I never loved another person the way I loved myself.

I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number you get in a diamond.

I only have 'yes' men around me. Who needs 'no' men?

I only like two kinds of men, domestic and imported.

I speak two languages, Body and English.

I used to be Snow White, but I drifted.

I wrote the story myself. It's about a girl who lost her reputation and never missed it.

I'll try anything once, twice if I like it, three times to make sure.

I'm a woman of very few words, but lots of action.

I'm no model lady. A model's just an imitation of the real thing.

I've been in more laps than a napkin.

It is better to be looked over than overlooked.

It isn't what I do, but how I do it. It isn't what I say, but how I say it, and how I look when I do it and say it.

It takes two to get one in trouble.

It's not the men in my life that count, it's the life in my men.

Love conquers all things except poverty and toothache.

Love isn't an emotion or an instinct - it's an art.

Love thy neighbor - and if he happens to be tall, debonair and devastating, it will be that much easier.

Marriage is a great institution, but I'm not ready for an institution.

One and one is two, and two and two is four, and five will get you ten if you know how to work it.

Opportunity knocks for every man, but you have to give a woman a ring.

Right now I think censorship is necessary; the things they're doing and saying in films right now just shouldn't be allowed. There's no dignity anymore and I think that's very important.

Save a boyfriend for a rainy day - and another, in case it doesn't rain.

The best way to hold a man is in your arms.

The score never interested me, only the game.

To err is human, but it feels divine.

Too much of a good thing can be taxing.

Virtue has its own reward, but no sale at the box office.

When choosing between two evils, I always like to pick the one I never tried before.

When I'm good I'm very, very good, but when I'm bad, I'm better.

When women go wrong, men go right after them.

You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.

Lisa Oceandreamer uses words of magic.

Before I copy and paste Lisa's TRIBUTE, I want to republish my 2007 Resolutions, even though we are half way through it.
To everyone I LOVE
(and you know who you are)...
wishing you the best year ever in 2007!
You know that we can do it . . . . so think it....thoughts become things!
Before you sit and reflect on kissing the old year goodbye and jotting down changes you want to make for 2007 - remember change starts with you! You can't change another person anymore than you can change the spots on a leopard! These rules might help you with your resolutions!
The 12 RULES for being human!
1. You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours the entire period.
2. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called Life. Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant and stupid.
3. There are no mistakes, only lessons.Growth is a process of trial and error: experimentation. The "failed" experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately "work."
4. A lesson is repeated until learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can then go on to the next lesson.
5. Learning lessons does not end. There is no part of life that does not contain its lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.
6. "There" is no better than "here." When your "there" has become a "here," you will simply obtain another "there" that will again look better than "here."
7. Others are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects something you love or hate about yourself.
8. What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.
9. Life is exactly what you think it is. You create a life that matches your beliefs and expectations.
10. Your answers lie inside you. The answers to life's questions lie inside you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.
11. You will forget all this.
12. You can remember it whenever you want.
If you are here, you know I love you! JudiRedhead

Daisy always wore moonstones, she taught us about the phases of the moon and the affects of the moon and cycles of the moon. She talked of sleeping with the moon light on her pillow. She would lay her moonstones on the window sill to absorb the moon light. I own moonstones now because of her. For me, she now dwells in the moonlight. She is the blooming garden, she is the mighty oak, she is the Rowan tree, she is quiet village life and fairies that dance among the blooms. She is the reading of a good book on a wooden chair in the sun of summer. She is fairy lights and incense and the Green Man upon her sitting room wall. She is a days ride on the local bus wearing her magic hat. She is shawls on a cool day and dangling earrings every day. She is the loyal friend, the wise goddess, the healing teacher. She is a glass of wine with candlelight. She is fairy podlings and spirit dolls. She is her childhood imagination and Sunday tea. She is the train through the countryside and the waves of Cornwall. She is the hippie heart. She is music playing. She is the songs Ladies of the Canyon and Suzanne. She is the finch and the shy crows and the blackbirds and thrushes she sees from her garden chair. She is the color purple and barefeet. She is the smell of jasmine and roses and Vanilla. She is Sunday rest. She is history retold. She is the willow tree. She is springtime and Saturday market. She is faery steps that lead upward. She is the Lunar months of the Celtic calendar. She is the cool breeze on the first Spring morning. She is so much more....and she will remain within all our hearts and when we see these things, feel these things, touch these things, read a certain book, hear a song, watch the night sky or a bee landing upon a flower...........it will be her. Daisy will live on through those she touched and will forever be in the moonlight and dancing with her cat in the kitchen and out with the flora in her garden.
We used to talk about wishing we were Ladies of the Canyon from the Joni Mitchell song or how each of us loved the Leonard Cohen song Suzanne. I will hear these beloved songs differently now, my heart will swell and I will remember my friend, the friend I never met but who touched my life profoundly.

This is her chair in the garden - she took this last summer.

Remember to tell those you love and care about how you feel. Remember to let others know they matter, they enhance your life, they make you smile, they brighten your days. Carry their hearts in your heart. This community, this internet blogging community is real and it's amazing and it's life changing and it brings people together in unimaginable ways. It changes lives. Between words and deeds and sharing and our lives and our hopes, dreams and sorrows we connect on a level so extraordinary. Don't take it for granted.

Honor the crossing of paths.I carry your hearts, I carry them in my heart.........each and every day - you all matter!

The Princess found her Prince!

I don't think I've ever seen a more beautiful bride.
The handsome Prince comes with
the most wonderful little boy.
I'm sure they will all live
happy forever and ever.
