How We Met

While my family was driving home from Indiana back to Florida one January, they stopped to walk the dog in Bowling Green, Kentucky. It was snowing and windy and really cold. Momma saw me dart out from under a pine tree. She hurried and gave the dog's leash to my dad who was waiting in the car and chased me all around a bunch of pine trees until she caught me. She brought me up to the window where Dad was sitting and put my little nose up to the window. Needless to say he caved and I was brought home with them to Florida.

Walking one foot in front of the other--Foot facts
“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” -Henry David Thoreau
.......²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²². ......
1. The human foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles.
2. Your feet mirror your general health. Conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, nerve and circulatory disorders can show their initial symptoms in the feet --so foot ailments can be our first sign of more serious medical problems. Biomechanical fault and strain affect the knees, joints and L5.
3. There are 250,000 sweat glands in a pair of feet. Sweat glands in the foot excrete as musch as a half pint of moisture a day.
4. The average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day, which adds up to about 115,000 miles ove a lifetime. That's enough to go around the circumference of the earth four times.

Power of her words
<<..•.¸¸•´¯`•.¸¸Emmeline Pankhurst¸¸.•´¯`•¸¸.•..>>
Speech on women's suffrage on November 13, 1913.

"I do not come here as an advocate. I am here as a soldier who has temporarily left the field of battle in order to explain what civil war is like when civil war is waged by women. I am here as a person who, according to the law courts of my country, it has been decided, is of no value to the community at all.
Women, many of whom you respect, women whom you know have lived useful lives, women whom you know, even if you do not know them personally are animated with the highest movtives, women who are in pursuit of liberty and the power to do useful public service...unless you are prepared to put back civilization two or three generations, you must give those women the vote. Now that is the outcome of our civil war."

«-••.•´¯`•.•• ••.•´¯`•.••-» «-••.•´¯`•.•• ••.•´¯`•.••-»
Moving conscious awareness into the field of future possibilities (or probabilities) gives us a degree of conscious choice or control over the future our subconscious mind creates. The Sanskrit word for "to know" literally translates into English as "to go through". Until our conscious mind actually experiences an event or manifestation of physical reality it cannot "know" that event or manifestation.
«-••.•´¯`•.•• ••.•´¯`•.••-» «-••.•´¯`•.•• ••.•´¯`•.••-»

Emmeline Goulden was born in 1858. She married Richard, an attorney, in 1879 to Richard. He shared her convictions about women's rights. He drafted the bill giving married women absolute control over their property and earnings, a bill, which became law in 1882.

She was a striking, charismatic woman and an inspiring speaker. "Perhaps it is difficult to rouse women, they are long-suffering and patient, but now that we are roused, we will never be quiet again." In June 1918 British women over age 30 won the right to vote. On July 2, 1928, just three weeks after her death, a law was passed allowing all women over the age of 21 to vote. Her 3 daughters benefited from her steadfast campaign for social justice.

Dance - Vote #59
Life-affirming, inspiring & captivating, heartwarming song.
Live fully, joyously, completely and purposefully

Take chances on opportunities......Gain strength
Embrace challenges.................Hold nothing back
Fulfill dreams.................... ............................Believe

»-(¯`v´¯)-» "I Hope You Dance" »-(¯`v´¯)-»
......by Tia sillers and Mark Sanders

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin',
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin',

Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin' out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

...Time is a wheel in constant motion
always rolling us along,
Tell me who wants to look back
on their youth and wonder
where those years have gone.

Dance....I hope you dance.

"What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset." - Chief Crowfoot, Blackfoot warrior and orator

.....................Native American Heritage Month
For millennia before Europeans settled in North America, the indigenous peoples flourished with vibrant cultures and were the original stewards of the land. From generation to generation, they handed down invaluable cultural knowledge and rich traditions.
Against the odds, America's first peoples have endured, and they remain a vital cultural, political, social, and moral presence. The bridge to the 21st century rests upon the foundation that is built today.

"Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect." - Chief Seattle

U.S. Supreme Court decides Native Americans can't be Americans on November 3, 1883.
America's journey has been marked by dark moments of injustice for American Indians and Alaska Natives. Tribal communities face stark realities and unacceptable disparities including disproportionately high rates of poverty, unemployment, crime, and disease. While we cannot erase the scourges or broken promises of the past, we move ahead to face new challenges.

*gourds, corn stalks, mums, planting fall bulbs
*singing time-worn songs around the bonfire

Anticipation - it's half the fun
It rained all day but remained dry watching the outdoors through the double set of glass sliding doors that enclose the rear porch. Have not yet seen tomorrow's forecast. Please, no more rain.

((¯`v´¯))Trick-or-treat & disguising VOTE!((¯`v´¯))

Dress to impress with the coolest, funniest, scariest or overall best costume on the block, at the school street parade or what you'll wear at a furrfriend's smashing costume party on October 31.
Never too early to plan and prepare. Scare up the fun with your crafty sewing skills. Design, create, stitch with love, wear with pride and laugh with glee once done. Everyone wants to look their best behind a realistic-looking mask. Visit the party stores before they are sold out.
Ringing doorbells is a game of chance. Will they have the best candy or not? Will neighbors give the kitties a thrill with their decked out yard full of skeletons, ghosts or tombstones, just to show-off their spine-tingling home? Will you hear the scariest howling out of haunted attractions?
Eventually back home after walking sidewalks, climbing hills or up and down many stairs, going around the block after block, and crossing all those streets. Time to count and separate candy galore; could almost open up a candy store.

Another warm beautiful day in NH, hope it lasts !!
((¯`v´¯))Nature’s autumn palette ((¯`v´¯))
Your VOTE comes with a rainbow leaf bouquet tied with bows of iridescent ribbon.

Fall’s changing colors are linked to cooling temperatures, decreasing sunlight and soil moisture. Chlorophyll gives plants their green color. Glucose is trapped in the leaves after photosynthesis stops. Sunlight and the cool nights in autumn cause the leaves to turn glucose into colors which become visible after the chlorophyll disappears.
The bright red and purple fall foliage colors come from anthocyanin pigments, orange colors from carotene and yellows from xanthophyll. Different combinations of these pigments give us a wide range of colors each fall. Brown fall foliage colors come from tannin, a bitter waste product.

New England destination
((¯`v´¯))Week-end's here. Another VOTE !!(¯`v´¯))

I sit here a meowing,
all perched in my tree,
the words are not there,
but the lyrics are free,
a sweet morning of purrs,
to the pleasure of all,
a cool and bright morning,
New England in fall.
The leaves are all parting,
the days they grow short,
the colors of Autumn;
before Winter's return,
the splendor is there,
for all to come see,
come visit New England,
and spend Fall with furrfriends?

Ear cleanings
Thanks for your message and the snuggles and ear cleanings! I love ear cleanings and give them to Stewart all the time, but he never does them for me. :-( I think I'm an ear cleaning maniac, because when I give them to Stewie he tries to close his ear after a while, and Meowmy will help him if she sees it.

Come visit me, Siegfried & Stewart.

Fall foliage-a glimpse of nature's splendor
((¯`v´¯))October's kitty birthstone is Opal((¯`v´¯))

October has 31 days. It is the 10th month of the Julian & Gregorian calendars but the 8th in the early Roman calendar. It retained its name from the Latin "octo" (eight). Here's your VOTE!

...Autumn
October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came;
The ashes, oaks, and maples,
And those of every name.

"There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings, as now in October.
I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house. So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air." -Nathaniel Hawthorne

Thirsty Thurs-Day in Australia
((¯`v´¯)) Thursday's kitty has far to go ((¯`v´¯))
Life is a great journey. We reach goals, have success in family ,friends, business, health, happiness and go far in life. Here's are many VOTES of confidence.

It's Thursday, a day before TGIF. Hold on, the weekend is just around the corner.

Imagery captures the instinctive soft-footedness of feline movement, inquisitive and purposeful steps that owner/observers love to watch, the last stanza nimbly leaps down on to the page from just hearing the words, you can "see" the cat moving to its ultimate destination.

Poem by William Carlos Williams, 1934
As the cat
climbed over
the top of

the jamcloset
first the right
forefoot

carefully
then the hind
stepped down

into the pit of
the empty
flowerpot.
