Interesting Book I Am Reading


During Sunday School Class, the topic of a book came up that sounded very intriging.

Case for Christ/Case for Faith Compilation [Kindle Edition]

Lee Strobel

Lee Strobel (www.LeeStrobel.com), with a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale Law School, was the award-winning legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and a spiritual skeptic until 1981. His books include four Gold Medallion winners and the 2005 Christian Book of the Year (coauthored with Garry Poole). He and his wife live in Colorado.

First of all to find out that he was an atheist when he first began was a surprise to me.  He only began to investigate due to his wife becoming a Christian.  His book has become a movie if you are not patient enough to read a book so look to see if it is available in DVD in your area.

Sorry I am not giving away about the book….read it for yourself and I will say that you will be glad that you did.  Just do not expect to get much done around the house as it is one of those can’t put it down books once you start to read it.

Daily Prompt: The Cat Allergy Man


Daily Prompt: FAQ

Interview someone — a friend, another blogger, your mother, the mailman — and write a post based on their responses.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us DETAILS.

2013-11-14 09.59.31 2013-11-14 09.59.28

My hubby came in this morning and announced that the runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing was from the new kittens.

I asked him what made him sure and his reply was that he had been up all night doing research on the subject.

(It is true that his reaction began the day that the kittens arrived and has been continuous)
I asked what some of the hard evidence facts were to support his case.

His reply was that he could not venture out into the store area without having a full blown sneezing attack.
He has gone through two boxes of tissues in two days and all of the allergy medication does not seem to help.

I find it odd that the dander from these two kittens could be so severe that he is having this reaction, yet we have had cats the entire time that we have been married.
Is it that we have closed up the space due to the kittens and it just needs to air out?
Is there something in their fur that is causing the reaction that if bathed would cease?
Should I just call the previous owners and explain the situation?

2013-11-14 09.58.16

Is this something that will go away with time, or will it worsen as the days go on?

I realize that something has to be done, now I fear his having a heart attack from sneezing so badly.
He would not allow me to photograph him for this interview since he is such a mess.

Time will tell, and I am going to call the previous owners.
I compared his situation to my being in a movie theater full of popcorn lovers.
Now he understands what I go through.

Perhaps God just wanted to show him so that I would not hear “It is not that bad” anymore.

Daily Prompt: Connecting the Dots Each Day


Daily Prompt: Connect the Dots

Scour the news for an entirely uninteresting story.
Consider how it connects to your life.
Write about that.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us a CONNECTION.

I am going to state ahead of time that I will possible ruffle a few feathers with this article.  
This is fine since comments are welcome of all opinions.

326308_4105852397769_1829807860_o
I chose to write about PTSD and it’s effects on lives of the family members of those who have it.
It is not just the person who has it who suffers from this.  The research is so in the dark for a cure.

Despite being told by a psychiatrist not to watch the Military Channel someone with PTSD can be drawn to it like flys to honey.

The path to recover is a long and slow path with a lot of work for the individual and the family.

Patience is the key.  Some days it feels as if alzheimer’s disease has kicked in or a bad case of “deja vous”  as the day progresses the little triggers kick in.

Night time is worse in our home and the dream medication will work some nights and other nights it is as if it were never taken.  Not only does the person relive the encounter, the spouse also spends the evening having the same experience.  This makes for a very long night and very little restful sleep.  

To put the day back into prospective the next morning is always very interesting.  Bringing the subject back to the current day (which I have done throughout the night at times also) is sometimes easier after a cup of coffee.  

My prayer is that they find a real cure for it rather than give a combination of pills that work as a “cocktail”.
I have found my spouse on the floor from these wonderful combinations as the sudden drop in blood pressure causes the body to drop where the subject is.  

This is dangerous.  After playing russian roulette with the various medications, being off from the majority of them has been the only answer.

Hense, the suffering continues.  The good news is that only the family is the ones who are suffering since the subject really does not realize what is happening most of the time.
Going to a grocery store and trying to go down an isle does not seem like a big deal unless you are a person with PTSD.  The problem is that the family sometimes forgets this and turns to find the subject missing.  They are left standing in the isle talking to themself as they turn to find the subject has disappeared.  Frustration has just set in for everyone.  Both the subject who has had an episode and the family member who now has to stop and begin a quest to find the subject.  What started out as a simple few object shopping list trip has now become a few hours.  
There are other days that the trip goes very smoothly and rapidly as one would normally plan and life is awesome.  The amazing part of PTSD is that there are no pre indicators.  It is not like a migraine where you get the warning signs.  

My answer to it all is simply…Tomorrow is truly another day.

Would love to hear from my readers about how you feel about this.  
Leave a comment and let me know.

Daily Prompt: A Fan of Sports?


Daily Prompt: Fandom

Are you a sports fan?
Tell us about fandom.
If you’re not, tell us why not.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us SPORTS.

Let me start by telling you that I love everything from Hockey, to Football with Basketball thrown in.

With that said, I have grown to love College Sports.
The reason being is that they do not go on strike.

First, years ago the Hockey team went on strike and did not return for the season.
Next came the baseball, who have repeated the game several times.
By then I had gotten so involved in college sports that I did not care anymore.

I will sit and watch a game with my hubby on Sundays.
I am actually more into sports than he is lol.
Since he does not care for college sports, that is something I watch alone.

I picked Wake Forest for a team only because I liked the name.

Would love to hear your imput on sports.
Leave me a comment.

Daily Prompt: Taking A Roadtrip


Daily Prompt: Trains, Planes, and Automobiles

You’re going on a cross-country trip.
Airplane, train, bus, or car?
(Or something else entirely — bike? Hot air balloon?)

Photographers, artists, poets: show us TRAVEL.

I think that today my roadtrip has been on a broom…after watching the interview by Matt Lauer with Paula Deen today I posted a copy of it on my Facebook account.

So Hillary Clinton made jokes about Upstate NY people, and Martha Stewart went to jail…this woman had a gun held to her head and is persecuted for saying a word one time…what about the rappers of the world are they next?

What ever happened to not being biased when reporting or interviewing?
First of all she was at gun point back in 1986 when this happened and it was from a statement to the police.
My question was to the respondents in Facebook are the rappers next?  Why did Food Network take so long?

On a brighter note we have heard from Su Ho Woo who is traveling from Washinton DC to California by bicycle to encourage people to be aware of the need for peace in South Korea.

If you would like to send him a word of encouragement https://www.facebook.com/suho.woo.5 to cheer him on his journey.
He was in Flagstaff Arizona on June 21st.

I am going to have to do a road trip to use my gift certificate for http://www.joann.com unless I use the entire $100.00 online as the closest store is over 100 miles away from my home.  Not happy about that one.

Well now I am off to a road trip to get this finger looked at an hopefully be told the splint can finally come off.  It has been a long two weeks.

Perhaps I will stop smacking my hand so much and can get back to sewing, crocheting and housework.
So for now my only road trip is two visits this week to the doctors.  Today is my hand and Friday is another mammogram.

Daily Prompt: Hello Book It Has Been A While


Daily Prompt: Bookworm

Tell us about the last book you read (Why did you choose it? Would you recommend it?).

To go further, write a post based on its subject matter.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us WORDS.

I have had two books sitting on my shelf that I have been reading.  For some reason, reading does not come as easy to me now that I am older as it did in my youth.

Not counting my Kindle subscription for http://www.magazines.com/crochet-today

Crochet Today! Magazine

I read that every month when it comes out as I have students who need new patterns. I also did not include all my cookbooks as they are reference books.


http://www.amazon.com/Eat-Pray-Love-Everything-Indonesia

http://www.amazon.com/Look-Me-Eye-Life-Aspergers

The most intriguiging book that I actually did audio was debated when I was in college and I was in the Literary Guild.  I was on the panel and due to the book being auditory I picked up a lot that the basic reader on the panel did not.

Product Details
http://www.amazon.com/Horse-Whisperer-Nicholas-Evans

The audio version was more indepth and you could feel what the author was getting across by the tones of the voices.  I do not kiss and tell so you are on your own to find out details.  I am not the person who sits in the room and tells you the ending of the movie before it is over.

My next purchase is to get the two hard cover books on audio.  I seem to actually get through books much better that way.  Since my kindle died due to being plugged into the wrong outlet, I have to decide what new one I want to get.  That will start me on my way to my audio adventure.

Tossing This To My Readers…Is This Fair?


Principal issues statement after sending Calgary boy who tackled knife-wielder home

Principal issues statement after sending Calgary boy who tackled knife-wielder home

BRIAR WAS PUNISHED AT HIS SCHOOL, SIR JOHN A. MACDONALD FOR STEPPING IN A AND HELPING ANOTHER STUDENT FROM BEING STABBED TUESDAY MORNING

Credits: DARREN MAKOWICHUK/QMI AGENCY

 

CALGARY — The principal of a Calgary school where one student broke up a fight that could’ve turned into a stabbing has made a statement to parents.

On May 28, Briar MacLean, 13, a Grade 7 student at Sir John A. Macdonald school, opted for action instead of running in search of a teacher when a student pulled a knife during a fight.

After tackling the student, MacLean was sent to the school office, then home.

His mom, Leah O’Donnell, took exception to her boy being made to feel like he was in trouble, and QMI Agency readers shared that sentiment.

The school and Calgary Board of Education didn’t comment until Friday, in a letter to parents on the school’s website.

“The student who reportedly intervened was asked to remain in the office to explain what happened but was in no way disciplined,” school principal Michael Bester wrote.

“Two students were suspended as a result of their behaviour in this incident.

“It is not recommended that students intervene in incidents such as this to ensure their own safety. There was a teacher nearby who could have been asked to assist before the third student became involved.”

O’Donnell maintained MacLean was sternly lectured for “playing the hero.”

O’Donnell is still proud of her boy’s decision to step in. Weapon or no weapon, assault is assault, she said.

“If someone were punching me in the face, I’d want somebody to stop them,” she said.

I toss this out to my readers to see what your opinion of this situation is.  Do you feel that this was handled correctly?
Did the student step over his bounds?
Should he have been suspended for his actions due to the circumstances of his reactions?
Would love to hear your reactions so leave me a comment.
