A day to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. I always attend the Arbutus Memorial DayRead More ceremony of American Legions 27 Original Flags. It is the very least I can do to show my respect and deep appreciation for all those brave men & women who gave their very lives for my freedoms and the freedom of so many all over the world. Their deaths meant that I can practice my religion, speak without fear, honor my country how I want, vote in a democratic republic, bear arms, and so on and so on.... Thank God for all the men & women who gave their lives for this country and for me. Amen

I proudly fly my American flag and I treat it with respect when handling it. It represents freedomRead More and the sacrifice of American blood in order to keep that freedom. I now live in a new home where there is a condo association with all kinds of inane 'rules'. I dare one of these condo nazis to order me to take down my flag.

If someone were to ask me who I admire most I would immediately say my mother. She has been soRead More sincerely outgoing, pleasant, hardworking and dedicated. She raised a very large family under some pretty difficult conditions yet kept her pleasant social personality through it all and did a very good job of it too. My mother is an amazing person. I wish I were more like her.

Absoutely!... Mahler's Resurrection Symphony (No 2): a deep. spiritual journeythat ends in trueRead More heaven... and composed by a Jew (this is my take as one, sorry)
jMichael April 20, 2014 at 08:59 am
Good one, Leslie. No one should let this day pass without sounding this symphony throughout hisRead More home. It is my understanding, however, that "The Resurrection" compassed by Mahler is not that of Jesus of Nazareth, but rather of us... The vision of our resurrection to the afterlife. It is not an affirmation of Christianity but of a sacred Humanity. If I am wrong about this please correct me. Regards, jMichael

Good one, Leslie. No one should let this day pass without resolving to know this symphony. It is myRead More understanding that "The Resurrection" compassed by Mahler is not that of Jesus of Nazareth, but rather of us... A vision of our resurrection to an afterlife. It is the affirmation of a resilient and sacred Humanity. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong about this. Regards, jMichael

We have a pet bunny Sam (Samantha). She is our only pet. Respect your bunny as a part of you.Read More Needs: space, plenty of veggies, food (NO BREAD, MEAT OR CHEESE) and nothing you feed a dog. Hay and love.

It's great to see the educational effort re pet rabbits - many people think they are just a cuddlyRead More version of a low maintenance, easily disposable pet like a goldfish. But having had three rabbits at home, they are definitely a big commitment. They have their own individual personalities just as much as a cat or a dog if you get to know them. Most love attention, but not usually confined to a lap. They are easily litter-trained, but can be destructive if left unsupervised in a non-bunny-proofed area. And please plan to spay/neuter (even if you have only one bunny) and get regular vet care if you take one on. The rewards are great (there's nothing like watching your bun do a binky out of pure joy), but there's a lot of responsibility, too.
