    Below is a wonderful poem Audrey Hepburn (b. 1929) wrote when asked to share her beauty tips. It was read at her funeral years later (d. 1993)….

    For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
    For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
    For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
    For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.
    For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
    People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
    Remember, if you ever need a helping hand,
    you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
    As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands;
    one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.

    I was reading and putting together information about Ocasio and forgot about the list of ten ๐Ÿ™ƒ. I hope this one is a happy one even though I didnโ€™t dedicate my usual amount of time to it.


    No words.

    2) Museum of the Dog is a fun, fitting tribute to manโ€™s best friend

    If youโ€™ve ever wondered what kind of dog you are, well, thereโ€™s a museum for that.

    The Museum of the Dog, from the American Kennel Club, opened Friday a couple of blocks south of Grand Central, after relocating from St. Louis, Missouri. Its 11,000-square-foot gallery is filled with pooch-centric paintings, sculptures, photos and artifacts, some going back centuries.

    3) L Lin Wood is not letting Nathan Phillips slide. Finally we are taking on the protected classes. Amen.

    While it is true that civil lawsuits are about money damages (1) for injury done & (2) to punish and deter, they also reveal the truth. The sworn deposition testimony of Nathan Phillips will prove invaluable in obtaining justice for Nick Sandmann. And it will be one of many. L Lin Wood

    4) Ocasio-Cortez is asked about the sex assault allegations against Virginia Democrat Justin Fairfax, she responds by saying she doesn’t know anything about it.

    When Kavanaugh was accused, AOC was on it in under 24 hours.

    Fairfax allegation has been out for a week, AOC won’t comment.__Ryan Saavedra

    Hypocrisy thy name is democrat.

    5) Sacred childhood, lived, breathed, felt, touched, experienced, awakened, shared, giggled, not lost in a screen.

    6 ) The New Green Deal was so ludicrously bizarre that Team Ocasio has come out and said that it was a โ€œdoctored documentโ€. Unfortunately for team Ocasio the original posting of the document has been preserved as has the FAQ document and the documents read exactly as its critics say they read.

    Like Obama, Ocasio is missing the shame gene, so she is unaware of how bad this makes her look.


    7) Are we up to what? 40 democrat candidates for the 2020 race? Each one more of a corrupt lunatic than the last one. 2019/2020 is going to be the year of civil war in the democrat party. They are fighting for the heart of the devil.

    8) Photographer Herbert van der Beek captures rare moment Jaguar dives to catch food .

    9) Attorney Robert Barnes appears to be putting together a team of attorneys who will work to combat the defamation that is faced by conservative people on social media on a daily basis.

    10) I think it is very important for the Democrats to press forward with their Green New Deal. It would be great for the so-called โ€œCarbon Footprintโ€ to permanently eliminate all Planes, Cars, Cows, Oil, Gas & the Military – even if no other country would do the same. Brilliant!__President Trump

    It seems Saikat Chakrabarti is the author of the New Green Deal (no surprise).

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is an empty vessel. She is a shape shifter and will be whatever she needs to be to advance herself under the tutelage of Chakrabarti.

    If you want to understand how dangerous a vapid socialist is just read this article. When the Justice Democrats saw who Ocasio is they converted almost all of their resources to her campaign. Of the 12 Justice Democrat candidates Ocasio is the only one who won. The Justice Democrats are working solely to tip tip the scale in favor of socialism being the predominant doctrine in American.

    โ€œThere Is Going to Be a War Within the Party. We are Going to Lean into It.โ€

    The Justice Democrats helped get Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez elected. Who are they after next?

    By David Freedlander l February 04, 2019

    Ocasio on her own says things like “The Three Chambers of Congress,โ€ and โ€œUnemployment is low because everyone has 2 jobs.โ€

    Sound familiar?

    My Muslim faith.

    57 States.

    Watch Ocasio on script. Also notice that while her main target is President Trump that Ocasio is attacking the system. Both democrats and republicans.

    Remember the old guard democrats were against Obama until they were for Obama.

    Netflix pays whopping $10 million for documentary about Ocasio-Cortezโ€™s political campaign

    Netflix has paid a record-breaking $10 million for rights to a Sundance Film Festival documentary about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-N.Y.), the Daily Mail.

    Even Obama did not have this buzz around him this early in his political game.

    And keep in mind that Ocasio is dumb. In the traditional sense of the word, she speaks while uniformed and ill-informed with the certainty of her malformed convictions.

    But Ocasio is cagey street fighter. When asked what she thought of Nancy Pelosi saying that The New Green Deal was a “Green Dream” Ocasio smiled and said “It is a dream, it is a green dream.” there really was not a better answer than the one Ocasio gave to the reporter.

    Remember Ocasio has been a waitress or bartender for years she has honed her people reading skills and has paid her bills by pleasing people who can do things for her.

    Ocasio is charismatic, attractive, shape shifter.

    Today Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to by me as Pocahontas, joined the race for President. Will she run as our first Native American presidential candidate, or has she decided that after 32 years, this is not playing so well anymore? See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz! __President Trump

    Why did President Trump put TRAIL in all capitals.

    Because President Trump almost always tips his hand before he strikes.

    Breitbart News first reported in 2012 that Sen. Elizabeth Warrenโ€™s (D-MA) great-great-great grandfather Jonathan Crawford was a member of the Tennessee Militia that rounded up Cherokees living there at the time for the Trail of Tears journey to Oklahoma in the 1830s.

    Lindsey Graham was on Fox News talking about how there was no Probable Cause to investigate Carter Page or to sign off on the FISA warrant. Not only 1 time but 4 times a warrant was unlawfully signed and approved.

    Just because the tree and the root is poisonous doesnโ€™t mean that the fruit is poisonous!!!! __Every Liberal everywhere. Soon. With the possible exception of Alan Dershowitz.

    Alternative Titles: Hippomane mancinella, poison guava. Manchineel, also called Poison Guava, (Hippomane mancinella), tree of the genus Hippomane, of the spurge family (Euphorbiaceae), that is famous for its poisonous fruits. The manchineel is native mostly to sandy beaches of the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico.M/i>

    But would those same liberals eat the fruit from the Mancinella Tree? Would they stand under it when it rains?

    But it is such shiny fruit cry the Liberals.

    You canโ€™t separate the toxicity of a fruit from its tree.

    Have at it lunatics.

    How mentally delusional is the Left?

    Van Jones watched the same SOTUA as we did.

    What Van Jones heard;

    A psychotically incoherent speech with cookies and dog poop.He tries to put together in the same speech these warm, kind things about humanitarianism and caring about children. At the same time he is demonizing people who are immigrants.โ€

    Delusional with hate.

    Seen on Facebook:

    The Great Iggy: -The NY Post reported that a man who brutally murdered his pregnant girlfriend, repeatedly stabbing the infant, had the charges dropped for the infants homicide because of Cuomo’s new law.–

    Stop and think about that for a minute.
    Now not only does the mother have control of “her own body”, but apparently a boyfriend, or some violent stranger, can come along, stab a woman and kill the baby presumably even on the way to the delivery room and the mother who wanted her new little son or daughter apparently will receive no legal relief for having her child murdered. Nor will her husband or family and, most importantly, the child himself.
    Is there some way for NY Dems to correct this obviously insane consequence? Does the baby magically become a human being with rights if it is a third party killing it rather than mom? They can never admit that, because even a toadstool, or Joe Biden, can recognize the irrationality of that. If it is magically a human being when a stranger kills it, clearly it is a human being when mom does too, and so as pro lifers have always maintained abortion is simply a legalized form of slavery and ownership of another human being.

    This is a couple I just started watching on YouTube this week. They have been full-time homesteaders since 2017, although they were part-timers for several years prior to that. They do sell meat (rabbits, mostly) at their farmer’s market. They also raise meat chickens, laying chickens, and pigs. They have some really interesting and informative videos.

    Yesterday, I think, when Stellars were discussing Bezos’ photos of his male anatomy (which I’d wager is nothing to write home about), I thought of this Frenchman, Frederic Deltour, who in his youth was a model. So I looked him up to see what he’s doing now at age 36…and found this vid about his travels. There’s no way, of course, you can tell what a person is like just by a vid, but he seems a sweetheart…and his accent is so adorable…

    Good evening ladies and gentlymen.
    Hope your weekend was Great.
    Spent a marvelous afternoon listening to a conversation between Camille Paglia and Jordan Peterson from 2 Oct 2017 entitled “Modern Times, Camille Paglia & Jordan B Peterson.”

    The conversation started out as a debate, with the potential for descending into verbal warfare.
    Peterson was obviously initially wary and reserved, with Paglia her usual combative self. It did not take long before both realized they were saying the same thing, using different words and different points of view.

    An enjoyable hour and 45 minutes later, with much enthusiasm, gestures, wonderful verbiage, and body language, the two ended the conversation, laughing, as friends.
    They spoke of everything, from biology to research to psychology to classics to arts to history to Marxists in education and culture (Paglia genuinely and unashamedly HATES these people), and everything in between.
    If you’ve an extra couple of hours, spend it with these two. Better than a great professor lecturing on a favorite subject.

    My friend did her taxes today and is totally outraged. She usually gets money back and this year will have to pay another $500. She did get some extra income which put her into the next tax bracket which is the problem. But, she called to warn me. I have no idea, but I am afraid because I also had more income this year, which won’t happen again, but I hope it doesn’t put me int the next bracket. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ She talked to a tax preparer who said a lot of people are complaining.

      Wasn’t the tax change to put more money in your pocket immediately by taking less tax from your earnings each pay period? That means the govenment doesn’t get to hold on to your money all year then give the extra portion back when you file your taxes -having had it as an interest free loan for the year. So your refund is less, or what you pay is more.

        I know this year was the first one in a long time that I took the standard deduction rather than itemizing, because the standard deduction is much higher than it was. I got a little bitty (very bitty) refund, but that’s okay because I had very little taxable income.

    lilbirdee12โ€™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.

    A prayer for Justice Kavanaugh and Col. Flynn:

    Prayer to St. Michael

    St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
    be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
    and do you, O prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits
    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    Yahoo!! Nineteen days and change until the start of the 46th Iditarod! Alaska’s official state sport of dog mushing’s premier event. As always, I’ll be pulling for my friends, Aliy Zirkle and her husband Alan Moore. Alan is currently in 2nd place near the end of the other big 1,000-mile sled dog race, The Yukon Quest. He’s an hour behind the leader with only 114 miles left to go; without a big weather event or a misstep by the team ahead of him, that’s a bigger gap than can be overcome. Aliy ran the shorter version, the Yukon Quest 300–and won! For the Quest(s), Alan runs the “A” team and Aliy runs the “B” team. For the Iditarod, they switch, and many of the dogs will run both races. Aliy winning with the B team tells me that all their dogs are in great shape this year. Maybe 2019 will be Aliy’s year to win Iditarod. Go Aliy!!

    And on more of a debbie downer note, my blood rose to a near boil when I saw this article earlier:
    It is a bunch of hogwash! And where is PETA’s stance on abortion?? You don’t see them out protesting when human babies are being murdered, do you?
