    Really busy morning coming up, so might as well post now πŸ˜‰

    American illustrator J. F. Kernan (1878-1958) specialized in images of middle-class life for the covers and pages of popular magazines from the 1910s to 1940s. His nostalgic and often humorous illustrations celebrate the simple comforts of home, family, and outdoor recreation. Born in Brookline, MA Kernan attended the Eric Pape School of Art in Boston and later taught at the school before embarking on his art career. An athlete & outdoorsman himself (he played professional baseball to help finance his art education), Kernan would frequently incorporate those themes into his works, specializing in outdoor subjects such as hunting and fishing. His art featured, as he described it, β€œthe human side of outdoor sports, hunting, fishing and dogs.” His works soon graced the covers of nearly every major magazine during the 1920’s/1930’s.

    Above all else, watch over your heart; diligently guard it
    because from a sincere and pure heart come
    the good and noble things of life.
    Do away with any talk that twists and distorts the truth;
    have nothing to do with any verbal trickery.
    Keep your head up, your eyes straight ahead,
    and your focus fixed on what is in front of you.
    Take care you don’t stray from the straight path,
    the way of truth,
    and you will safely reach the end of your road.
    Do not veer off course to the right or the left;
    step away from evil, and leave it behind.

    – Proverbs 4:23-27 (The Voice Version)

    I find it odd that our normally honest media has not had any stories about what happened in Russia just a couple of days ago. Maybe they don’t want people connecting emotionally with humans on the other side of the planet or something.

      March 28 was declared a national day of mourning but acts of solidarity with Kemerovo started earlier across the country. On March 27, in more than 30 cities from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok, people gathered to commemorate the victims. Around 12,000 came together in silence in Moscow’s Pushkin Square.

      I’ve not seen anything at the various sites visited each day. Maybe it’s because no gun was involved and our media deems it not important unless it meets their control agenda.

      The first thought that came into my mind upon reading this was: “sin-sick soul” from THERE IS A BALM IN GILEAD…

      There is a balm in Gilead
      To make the wounded whole
      There is a balm in Gilead
      To heal the sin sick soul
      Sometimes I feel discouraged
      And deep I feel the pain
      In prayers the Holy Spirit
      Revives my soul again

      There is a balm in Gilead
      To make the wounded whole
      There is a balm in Gilead
      To heal the sin sick soul

      If you can’t pray like Peter
      If you can’t be like Paul
      Go home and tell you neighbor
      He died to save us all

      There is a balm in Gilead
      To make the wounded whole
      There is a balm in Gilead
      To heal the wounded soul

      Genesis 37:25 New King James Version
      And they sat down to eat a meal. Then they lifted their eyes and looked, and there was a company of Ishmaelites, coming from Gilead with their camels, bearing spices, balm, and myrrh, on their way to carry them down to Egypt.

      “Balm in Gilead”: Storax balsam, medicinal resin produced in north Transjordan (Jeremiah 46:11). Gilead region is known for this balsam ointment (Genesis 37:25). (Wikipedia)

      Lovely, look another support goat. This one is a billy goat with male parts intact. My not so professional opinion says he appears to be a pygmy cross billy goat. Good thing there wasn’t a female goat on the bus or he might have got a little pee on the bus driver. lol

      Although, I’m not so sure he wasn’t starting to think someone smelled a little like a nanny as he was starting to do the tongue wagging. πŸ™‚

        Thanks for my morning laugh Michelle!

        That is an awfully big goat, with big horns.

        Notice Erick the “Rock-Star” trying to get a good Samaritan to fix his β€œErick and Deer the Goat.” bus for free πŸ€”. How does he afford gas for that guzzler bus? It probably gets 6 miles to the gallon.

        Maybe people and their support goats will hold a rally and all get on one bus to protest this, πŸ™ƒ, imagine the mayhem.

        …..But I really thought another passenger stole the show.

        While Erick was on the bus with Deer the goat the guy is saying;

        β€œMan, I gotta get home dog, walkin’ dead on tonight.”

        Then when Eric and Deer the goat leave, the chap says;

        Thank you home boy, thank you, I really appreciate it, Walkin’ Dead appreciate it. God bless you.” πŸ˜‚

        Oh and funny that. Erick doesn’t mention that Deer is an emotional support goat in the early days of his goatery-relationship.

    An Open Rant Aimed at Those Who Would Repeal the Second Amendment

    • The Tundra PA says:

      Great article, Stella. Thanks.
      This will involve hard work, of course. You can’t just sit online and preen to those who already agree with you. No siree. Instead, you’ll have to go around the states β€” traveling and preaching until the soles of your shoes are thin as paper. You’ll have to lobby Congress, over and over and over again. You’ll have to make ads and shake hands and twist arms and cut deals and suffer all the slings and arrows that will be thrown in your direction. You’ll have to tell anybody who will listen to you that they need to support you; that if they disagree, they’re childish and beholden to the β€œgun lobby”; that they don’t care enough about children; that their reverence for the Founders is mistaken; that they have blood on their goddamn hands; that they want to own firearms only because their penises are small and they’re not β€œreal men.” And remember, you can’t half-ass it this time. You’re not going out there to tell these people that you want β€œreform” or that β€œenough is enough.” You’re going there to solicit their support for removing one of the articles within the Bill of Rights. Make no mistake: It’ll be unpleasant strolling into Pittsburgh or Youngstown or Pueblo and telling blue-collar Democrat after blue-collar Democrat that he only has his guns because he’s not as well endowed as he’d like to be. It’ll be tough explaining to suburban families that their established conception of American liberty is wrong. You might even suffer at the polls because of it. But that’s what it’s going to take. So do it. Start now. Off you go.

      When the likes of Rob Delaney and Bill Maher and Keith Ellison say that we need to get rid of the Second Amendment, they are not speaking in a vacuum but reflecting the views of a small but vocal portion of the American population. And they mean it.

      Same clowns in the game, same loud braying fools, still manipulating and grooming young skulls full of mush to do their bidding.

      The most ridiculous sign I have read is “Protect Children, Not Guns”.

      Nothing in the world is more dangerous than a sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.__Martin Luther King

      Only the stupid, the delusional, the corrupt, the evil, and the sincerely ignorant think that somehow another persons actions negate my rights as a human being.

      As Cooke says, let’s get on with it. Try to repeal the Second Amendment. Go for it, knock your Birkenstocks off.

      I am betting that we are closer to waking up one day in an America where Constitutional Carry will be the law of the land as will be decided by the SCOTUS than we are to repealing the Second Amendment.

      The gun grabbers are on the wrong side go humanity, some of them through malice, some of them through ignorance.

      β€œ[The Constitution preserves] the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation (where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” __James Madison

      β€œFoolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it’s not an individual right or that it’s too much of a public safety hazard, don’t see the danger in the big picture. They’re courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the Constitution they don’t like.” __Alan Dershowitz


      • John Denney says:

        The phrase, “the right of the people” occurs three times in the fist four sentences in the Bill of Rights.
        To claim that it means individual rights in the first and third instance, but not the second, is delusional.
        Those three instances are in the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Amendments.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
