How about this for a *Pledge of Allegiance*?


New Pledge of Allegiance

Since the Pledge of Allegiance 
and The Lord's Prayer 
Are not allowed in most 
Public schools anymore 
Because the word 'God' is mentioned..... 
A kid in Arizona wrote the attached 
NEW School prayer:  
Now I sit me down in school 
Where praying is against the rule 
For this great nation under God 
Finds mention of Him very odd. 

If scripture now the class recites, 
It violates the Bill of Rights.   
And anytime my head I bow 
Becomes a Federal matter now. 

Our hair can be purple, orange or green, 
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene.. 
The law is specific, the law is precise. 
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice. 

For praying in a public hall 
Might offend someone with no faith at all.. 
In silence alone we must meditate, 
God's name is prohibited by the state. 
We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks, 
And pierce our noses, tongue s and cheeks... 
They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible. 
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.

We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen, 
And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King. 
It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong, 
We're taught that such 'judgments' do not belong.. 

We can get our condoms and birth controls,  
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.  
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed.
No word of God must reach this crowd. 

It's scary here I must confess, 
When chaos reigns the school's a mess. 
So, Lord, this silent plea I make: 
Should I be shot; My soul please take!

Asking for your help-- Movie about Bullying needs your help..

Please sign this petition so they will change the rating from R to PG so kids can see this. It's about Bullying. They don't think kids should watch it. If it's about kids doing the bullying why shouldn't they see it. 

MPAA: Don’t let the bullies win! Give ‘Bully’ a PG-13 instead of an R rating!

For all those who like Brownies

I follow Chris Stevens and all his cooking segments and the last one was making Mint Choc. Brownies. 
We of course won't make them as they have too much sugar in them but thought I would pass it on for everyone who might like to make it. It was pretty simple and easy to make by his video and he had variations to flavors if you might like.

Starting a juice fast

We watched the movie, "Fat, Sick and nearly Dead" on Netflix this weekend and it was about a guy who had let himself go and eat whatever he wanted over the years. He was only 41 and weighed well over 290 lbs. He decided to do a 60 day juice fast and it followed him as he made his transformation. It was quite interesting. It showed how we as Americans don't get enough fruits and vegetables in our daily meals.
He showed how you can get all your fruits and vegetables in while you are juicing. It really benefits your body. 
It gives you more energy, better restful sleep and even helped one woman to get rid of her headaches that she had been having for years. It will help you to get rid of all the pills your Dr.s have you on also. 
He even had a truck driver who had also let himself go and was into the 429 lb sight. it followed him to show you the difference in his transformation. He had really bad knees but after starting the juicing his knee problems went away and he was even running every day for exercise.

So I started searching online for a juicer. Well as you can figure if you want one that is good and will last - they are going to be more expensive. I can't afford the price they want for those. SOOO we decided to go out and add to the fruits we already had in the house.
Then we proceeded to make this fruit and veggie concoction in our Ninja Blender we got a few weeks ago. Since it has 2 sets of blades for each container, it should do a good job. 
WELL good job wasn't nearly the word to describe how our concoction turned out.  

I used:
1 orange peeled
1 granny smith apple peeled
2 stalks of celery
2 handfuls of green grapes
1 pear peeled

Now it did turn out a bit juice - smoothie type but the flavor was delicious. I figure the celery made it a but like applesauce texture. But it did come out very smooth. It was so good Mr. L. wanted another glassful. But we have decided to do this twice a day along with a regular meal and we should be doing good. As with the juicing if you were to drink it 4 times a day as it says to do I believe you and the bathroom would become very good friends......
Since that is NOT what we want or Mr. L. can do since he has to work. We plan to add this to our exercises we do nightly and see what we get as an outcome. I would love it if I can get off some of these pills I take and help me with my headaches. The sleeping better would really benefit me as well. 

I am adding a few videos of Joe Cross, where he shows you how to make the "Mean Green Juice" that he uses and drank during his filming.
Hope you enjoy and maybe come out of this with a better outcome on how you get your fruits and vegetables in your daily intake.

Something new I found

We all use some sort of oil, grease or something to cook with. Well I went from cooking oils, to olive oil to now---
 Lou Ana Pure Coconut Oil.
We have been using this the past 2 wks. and couldn't be more pleased. It adds so much flavor to the food and all you need is a little bit added to your frying pan/skillet. It doesn't leave your food dripping like oils do. It seems to absorb into the food. Our fried egg sandwiches we have for breakfast, couldn't taste better. 
I made fried potatoes the other night and they tasted so good we had a hard time not going back for seconds. 
The only place you can find this is Walmart at $5.98. The price is more than I wanted to pay but I'm glad I did because I will not try anything else again. 
It comes in a solid form. Go pick it up at your Walmart today. It's in the baking isle with all the other oils.

A question for GOD.

Me: God, can I ask you a question?

God: Sure

Me: Promise you won't get mad?

God: I promise

Me: Why did you let so much stuff happen to me today?

God: What do you mean?

Me: Well, I woke up late.

God: Yes

Me: My car took forever to start.

God: Okay

Me: At lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait.

God: Huummm

Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call.

God: All right

Me: And on top of it all off, when I got home ~I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?

God: Let me see, the Death Angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.

Me (humbled): OH

GOD: I didn't let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.

Me: (ashamed)

God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick & I didn't want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn't afford to miss work.

Me (embarrassed):Ok

God: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call, I didn't even let you talk to them so you would be covered.

Me (softly): I see God.

God: Oh and that foot massager, it had a shortage that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn't think you wanted to be in the dark.

Me: I'm sorry God.

God: Don't be sorry, just learn to trust all things, the good & the bad.

Me: I will trust you.

God: And don't doubt that my plan for your day is always better than your plan.

Me: I won't God. And let me just tell you God, thank you for everything today.

God: You're welcome child. It was just another day being your God and I love looking after my children...

For all the animal lovers...Something FREE..

I don't know about you but my doggies mean the world to me. So if ever anything were to happen at my home while I was away I would want someone to know I have them inside and how many. So I want to share this with you. It is a FREE Window Decal for you to send for that you can list what animal you have. It even has a place for *other* animals. So I wanted to make sure you send for yours. 

Free Window Decal

Please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery. 

Now I will tell you that I don't put my *real* email address on things like this. Since you don't have to confirm your request. I just hate getting so many emails and then trying to get them to stop sending you the stuff is so frustrating. I did send for this and my fake email address went through no problem. I do see that if you click on the link again you can reorder another one of these with no problems. 
I like to have at least 2 of these so I have these on both of my doors so they will be easily seen.

I would love one of these..

I found this and I will have to make one this summer. If not a few for different windows.
I would love to be able to see the birds make their nest and see the babies hatch inside. It would be great for the grand kids to see also.

Breakfast for us

We have a nice fried egg sandwich with a slice of cheese on 100% whole wheat bread with flax seed. We sometimes toast it. Then add a fruit, today it was strawberries. Then enjoy a nice hot cup of Chai tea. 

This was my plate, as you can see I put ketchup on my sandwich. I grew up eating my fried egg sandwiches this way and they just don't taste the same any other way. 
We do sometimes have scrambled eggs and toast. But we always make sure we have a breakfast within an hour of being up. 
We eat 3 decent meals a day along with snacks in between. Then after our workout after Mr. L. comes home at midnight we have changed to a protein shake. But you could have a bit of tuna, peanut butter or nuts. Some protein before bed is better than fruit. We were just enlightened on that by our workout Coach. Since the fruit has sugar, be it natural sugar- it is still sugar. Sugar is a No No before bed... Even though we stay up another 2 hours after our workouts. 
Just wanted to share some of our eating habits with you. They really aren't that hard to do.
