Have to start the newsletter with a correction. In October’s Newsletter I talked about the Island of Crimea. The letter went through several hands before being posted and we all missed it…. shame on me… a reader found the error and pointed it out to me. I stand corrected and here is what Crimea looks like.
Pretty nasty storms on the horizon, in fact Washington State was hit by a rare Tornado already and there are more to follow… Storms, that is. To be fully prepared some of us go to the store and make sure all is in place for just such an event. We already had a little earthquake early in the month, so we are nervous about a possible BIG one. The rest of America is, by no means, any better off. Floods, fires and droughts everywhere.
Much controversy for some about shopping at Walmart but some find it very helpful to have the store in our neighborhoods for one-Stop convenience and the reasonable prices. On a Social Network there is a segment: WalMartians, in which some shoppers take pictures of oddly dressed people, disproportionate weight, misbehaving children and all things which portray going to the store much like going to the Circus. I must admit… at times I watch the clips and they ARE really funny in a perverse way at times…. only to wonder are the people in the pictures true to life or maybe the clips have been staged. That day I thought I would spend a little time at Walmart and pay close attention.
The Sun was toying with the idea to slowly disappear behind the big parking lot. As I sat on a bench outside of our local Walmart to enjoy a few more minutes a man came out of the store and fumbled around in the big ashtray sitting on the side of the building. I asked him if he would like a smoke, he declined, explaining that as soon as he decided to smoke he had arrived at the store, in which case he has to extinguish the cigarette and half of his precious commodity was wasted. He said he always laid the put-out-cigarette in the ashtray on his way in and retrieved it on the way out, so he could continue to smoke. We talked about the weather and he asked me if I had seen the strange blue cloud a Saint Louis weatherman discovered. I had not and he promised to e-mail it to me, and he did. The map beat me in my E-mail and was at my house when I got home.
It was a migrating swarm of Monarch Butterflies and look at the amazing teamwork in this massive formation of a species in UNITY, in order to survive the long trip as a Collective.
Plastic grocery bags are banned in my county, so it was interesting to see which reusable bags shoppers used as they entered and exited the store. Fairly familiar with most of the stores in town, I discovered many bags from upper class establishments, unlike what I expected. I thought back to the days I traveled in my RV and parked in Walmart parking lots. I never encountered WalMartians.
I sat for quiet a while, watched a woman wearing shoes the same color as her feet walk by. Cars, actually a Lexus, some BMWs, two Escalades and all cars looking for parking spaces were MUCH younger than my 96 Toyota.
UPGRADE of TCTV was finally finished and we were ready to make magic in the new HD Studio, we were all so proud of.
The young man insisted to friend me on Facebook Lilian Mustelier and I accepted. While looking at different things we discovered a friend of mine, Michael Lillie, had sent me some pictures he had taken with his brand new camera. Along with the pictures he wrote the following:
I went to Snoqualmie yesterday. I shot this photo of a locomotive window. I am at loss to explain the haze / fog in the upper right corner. It was overcast, clear visibility and it did not appear in any other shots.
This next picture was taken 1 min 4 sec before the window close up. Train window zoomed out, shot 24 seconds after the 1st picture
A neighbor joined the conversation and we discussed the fact that our animals had recovered from, what we thought, was the result of Drone testing, now, that our Governor suspended all drone activity and testing in Washington State. That is a good thing, but at the same time it is so interesting to have drones take pictures of large crowds as we saw in New York and now of the demonstrations in Hong Kong. Especially since I had “seen” this in the predictions for 2014.
A young woman exited the store, complaining that she had, once again, gained another dress size… and right in the gut, she added. We asked her what she bought and she was eager to show off her new acquisition, a low cut pair of jeans. By now several other woman had gathered and we talked about “Intravenous Weight”. Still don’t know what it means, but it sounded really interesting so I added my theory of GMO food , which adds pounds to our bodies whether we like it or not. I mentioned how some of us noticed how the shape of woman’s bodies changed around the year 2000 and the process came to an end about 2012. How great we thought that we are almost all shaped the same way and how much more relaxing it is to no longer have to be in competition for the perfect body. And oh yes, thank God for SPANKS!
We continued our conversation….by now a clerk, who had finished her shift joined into our “Gossip”
I enjoyed talking to the people in front of Walmart, some still in their blue uniforms and we mentioned the following:
*** Ava Morales, President of Bolivia, singed into law that Mother EARTH has the same rights as People.
*** Cuba sent 461 Doctors and Nurses to Liberia and Guinea to battle the Ebola Epidemic. One African Ebola Patient died on American soil. To this date six Americans have been treated in the US and survived.
*** Preprogrammed Town Clocks are one hour behind, since President Bush decided to change the date on changing time in America, guess no-one wants to put it back the way it was for many years, unless they simply forgot.
*** President Gilma Rousseff was re-elected as President of Brazil.
*** Our hearts go out to the friends of the Tulalip Nation as they cope with the tragedy of losing their children at Pilchuck HS in Marysville, Washington.
*** Ferguson, MO is still waiting for justice. People are still marching nightly. In the mean time another unjustified killing of a young AFRO AMERICAN in Saint Louis MO, just a few miles from Ferguson and who knows how many more in other places the news is not really reporting on.
*** My head was spinning, it was day day of the Blood Moon Eclipse, I was rather disoriented and a little lost in town, not finding my way home… I took the wrong roundabout. It was reported that many people around the world felt the effects of the celestial event.
One of the young producers from TVTV pulled into the parking lot. He stopped and jokingly ask me if I was looking for WalMartians. And wanted to know if I had made any new discoveries worth talking about or even addressing in in a upcoming show. I thought so…. I ran into this map of the African Continent. I thought it was interesting to someone who likes to really research the commodities shown here. We have an Election Year and oh… how convenient to add a little fear for the VOTERS. All of a sudden we find ourselves with another import from the Afrika. EBOLA. AIDS is not listed on the map either. Wonder who owns that!
ROOTS is a program on PBS. It explores and traces the ancestry of famous people. It was interesting to me that Steven King, Gloria Ruben and Courtney Vance INSTINCTIVELY knew their origins.
I would love to have a profile work-up on myself just to see how close I come to my own instinctive suspicions as to my ancestry. Lack of money keeps me from pursuing this adventure…. maybe one day.
I often think the world is not ready for disclosure for some, maybe one day we can prove DNA residue in some Ancient Alien Theorists……..
Been blind as a bat and unable to drive at night due to the terrible glare in my sight and been searching for a place to get a duplicate pair of glasses for that purpose. It took several weeks to even locate a frame suitable for me, the RETRO frames… I like them big since big glasses have been my trademark over the years…. were impossible for the local opticians to work with. It took a little to rearrange my budget since the cost of Eyeglasses has risen by quiet a bit since the last time I got new ones and just when I thought it was all accomplished I was told my prescription was too old. I set out to find an Eye Doctor to request an duplicate prescription. Not far from my house is the Tumwater Eye Clinic. I stopped there to inquire about an appointment and explained I
needed a duplicate prescription. The Lady at the desk became rather upset immediately and explained it was illegal in Washington State to issue a prescription for glasses without an exam. I explained to her that I did not have all the funds to replace all 3 of my current glasses and would like to see the Doctor. I asked what the charge was, $170, at which I whistled through my teeth and explained that was a little steep for me at the moment. She barked back that in that case I should go to Walmart rather than their clinic.
I saw a wall with frames and asked for permission to take a look. She nodded yes. Right about then I had to use the Facility and while there thought about maybe changing the style of my glasses after all. I attempted to ask her for the price of a frame I liked, but she was NOT having it. She stated her time for answering questions about unreasonable subjects was over. I wanted to know why and she replied she had work to do and NO, she was no longer going to speak with me. No more questions, no more answers. Well then…. and I slammed the door on my way out. I will make sure to
recommend the clinic to everyone…. NOT!
My friend reminded me to get going and see the Eye Doctor at Walmart, the SUN was really setting now. The new friends bid me good bye and I got my glasses…new prescription and new frame from a very nice Walmart Ophthalmologist. $ 70. Thanks to a friend I was able to afford that. My eyes had changed so little that I will be able to use my old glasses along with the new ones.
Oh, Oh, here it comes! A silver, brand new SUV with 12th Man Seahawks stickers and OMG…. 12th man flags on metal poles attached to the sides of it! Finally… a WalMartian…. No, the Seahawks biggest Fan, my NIECE!
Love and Light
