Creative Every Day Challenge 2009......my sketch of Opie....and some variations....and Opie came up and posed while I was working on it!
The nose is still a little long...I shortened it.....improved the feet....added a bit more detail to the fur and face....but I better stop before I ruin it. I thought it was sweet that Opie came up and laid right down on my sketch pad when I was finishing this after I told him I was sketching a picture of him. It was so sweet so we grabbed the camera and snapped a few
I really like this version too.....more of a cartoon type ...would be great for illustrating
obviously Noah's date on his camera is way off
"The tiny air currents that a butterfly creates travel across
thousands of miles, jostling other breezes as they go and
eventually changing the weather." - Edward Lorenz, meteorologist at
We Are All Connected. Because we are all connected, any improvement
you make in your individual world contributes to improving our
world at large. Be selfish enough to want to feel good. If alarms
start going off in your head at the thought of being selfish, keep
in mind that when you're out of alignment, you have nothing
positive to give to anyone anyway. What you vibrate is what you
have to give, which means that when you make feeling good your
highest priority, you are helping yourself AND others. What's good
for you IS good for others. Feeling Good, as it turns out, is the
most Unselfish thing you can do.

plays over and over in my thoughts
images of my body flash in my mind's eye
different from what I see in the mirror
Be still and know....
flesh on top of flesh
skin that has been present for a lifetime
overlapping in new areas
allowed to stretch wide as a blanket
used as a shawl to cover my arms
as a lap warmer on my belly and thighs
Be still and know...
I am hot and want to throw back the covers
yet they cannot be loosed...
they have become like super glue
no amount of kicking or tantrums
does anything but shift the weight
Be still and know...
My feet feel like cement blocks
barely able to shuffle across the floor
I am hidden from all eyes
No one can see me now
Be still and know...
I am protected....yet naked
I have created a barrier....yet feel exposed
I have shut out all....yet crave another
I can breathe.....yet I am smothered

I worked...taught Noah his school...cleaned the house.....did dishes..laundry....and found myself with some extra time left over. I sat down next to the cat.....and he was sleeping so cute....I decided I had no excuses to not try doing something creative. My goal this week was to sketch something.....not spend a lot of time on it.....but to sketch something. I did this in about 1 hour. I still have to tweak the body and feet....and then add more details to the face/eyes....I can see the finished work in my mind....but I am too tired to finish it tonight as 4:00 a.m. comes too early for me!

Natural health authors like Dr. Gary Null have been talking about the AIDS fraud for decades. What's the fraud? The false believe that AIDS is caused by the HIV virus. As it turns out, the entire basis of that belief is pure scientific fraud.
The original papers upon which that now-common medical myth was based were, in fact, partly fabricated by Dr. Robert Gallo. The electron microscope photos used by Gallo to "prove" HIV causes AIDS didn't even contain viruses at all! Even so, his papers were published in 1984 in the journal Science, and from that point forward, it was accepted as "scientific fact" that HIV causes AIDS.
This was a convenient medical myth, since it placed the drug companies in the position of manufacturing and selling anti-viral medications to AIDS patients, promising them hope while, in reality, offering them nothing but a lifetime of continued immune system suppression and a cocktail of expensive, toxic pharmaceuticals.
On December 1, 2008, a group of 37 scientists sent a letter to Science, requesting that the journal retract its 1984 publication of Gallo's papers. This, of course, would cause huge upheavals throughout the conventional AIDS pill-pusher communities (Big Pharma, conventional doctors, etc.) because Gallo's papers have been quoted by literally thousands of other scientific papers published in the last 25 years. If Gallo's work is retracted, it would mean that every paper published since then might deserve additional scrutiny, too, and pretty soon the whole AIDS house of cards (and lies) comes tumbling down.
The entire (high-profit) AIDS industry, in other words, depends on the continued belief in the HIV / AIDS lie for its own survival. This is similar to the way in which the breast cancer industry depends on the mammography lie to stay in business, too. Behind every disease-based medical industry, there's a secret lie that keeps it in business.
So don't expect Science to act with much motivation on this issue. Medical journals, after all, aren't really about science: They're about promotion! And promoting AIDS drugs depends entirely on pushing the medical myth that AIDS is caused by HIV.
If there's one thing that conventional medical research can't stand, it's scrutiny. How dare we question AIDS, or vaccines or flu shots? Because every time there's any serious scientific inquiry into the subject, the fraud is readily exposed. For example, as mentioned on the website RethinkingAids.org:
In the early 1990s, several highly critical reports on the research underlying Gallo's papers were produced as a result of governmental inquiries working under the supervision of scientists nominated by the National Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Medicine. The Office of Research Integrity (ORI) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services concluded that the lead paper of the four was "fraught with false and erroneous statements" and that the “ORI believes that the careless and unacceptable keeping of research records . . . reflects irresponsible laboratory management that has permanently impaired the ability to retrace the important steps taken." Further, a Congressional Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations produced a staff report on the papers, containing scathing criticisms of their integrity.

Here's a little-known truth about Bayer that needs to be revisited. In 2006, it was discovered that Bayer found out a vaccine it was selling in the United States was accidentally contaminated with HIV.
In order to cover its tracks, say the journalists in this video (below), Bayer pulled the vaccines off the market and sold them to consumers in Japan, France, Spain and other countries, where hemophiliacs were then contaminated with HIV due to the vaccine.
Watch the video yourself
And yet, despite these apparent crimes, no Bayer executives ever faced arrest or prosecution in the United States.
A Bayer spinmeister had this to say: "Bayer behaved responsibly, ethically and humanely... [and its actions] were consistent with regulations."
Sure they did. Don't forget that Bayer is the same pharmaceutical company linked to Nazi Germany's medical experiments on concentration camp prisoners. They have a long and dark history of being involved in the manufacture of chemical weapons. As stated on CorporateWatch.org (http://archive.corporatewatch.org/profi...):
" IG Farben continued to grow during the inter-war period as one of the most powerful chemical and pharmaceutical companies in the world. Products included polyurethanes and the first 'sulpha' drugs. It is during Nazi-era Germany and WW2 that IG Farben (Bayer) entered its most sinister phase. IG Farben as the leading chemical company in Nazi Germany took over chemical plants across Nazi occupied Europe, used slave-labour in their factories (including operating their own concentration camp), conducted medical experiments on those held in the concentration camps and manufactured the poison gas used to kill thousands. At the end of the war the 1945 Potsdam Agreement called for the break up of IG Farben into its constituent companies. Twelve IG Farben employees and directors were jailed for war crimes at the Nuremburg Trials."
Anybody who takes anything made by Bayer is, in my opinion, supporting a corporation that has been committing crimes against humanity for nearly a hundred years.

I am excited! I have been waiting for this game for a couple of weeks now!
Last night I watched an April 1991 boxing match between Evander Holyfield and George Foreman...it was exciting. I sort of remember seeing this fight before but I forgot for sure who won. I wanted Evander to win and HE DID! I did enjoy it though watching any fighting and boxing gets me worked up.
Well the game will begin soon and I have a few last minute things to get done before then!
