True Freedom requires responsibility

We all read the headlines:

"On this day in 2008, Senator Barack Obama of Illinois defeats Senator John McCain of Arizona to become the 44th U.S. president, and the first African American elected to the White House."

This was a lie from the start as pointed out by Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman
when speaking on NPR  he stated Barack Obama is "not America's first black president. He's America's first mixed-race president"
But to take it a step further Dr. Jack Wheeler points out that Barack Hussein Obama is half white and half Arab not African American. He did not come from descendants of enslaved Africans brought to America chained in slave ships. He hasn't a single ancestor who was a slave. His middle name, Hussein is derived from Arabic and  his Arab ancestors were slave owners. Slave-trading was the main Arab business in East Africa for centuries until the British ended it.

No matter what his name....Barry Soetoro, Barack Soetoro, Barry Obama, Barack Hussein Obama or what his color or mixture, many people were duped by the race card and his brilliant "Hope and Change" theme in which people inserted their own idea of hope and change and did not look for the qualifications needed to lead our great country. Consequently, a high percentage of people are very unhappy today. It might be good to remember that you not need to be on a southern plantation to be a slave, if you are dependent on government entitlements you just have a different slave owner.

Lombard Street

This is the famous Lombard Street in San Francisco, Calif.


It is said to be the crookedest street in the world. Built in 1922, the design was intended to reduce the hills natural 27% grade. It is about 600 feet long and is paved with red bricks. The sign at the top recommends 5 mph. It is lined in flowers and greenery and is beautiful but because of the tourist is have become bit of a hazard.

But how about going down it on a skateboard with no brakes?

Not for the weak hearted

Parcel post

“After parcel post service was introduced, at least two children were sent by the service. With stamps attached to their clothing, the children rode with railway and city carriers to their destination. The Postmaster General quickly issued a regulation forbidding the sending of children in the mail after hearing of those examples.”

A little history is you please:)

Sending packages via the U.S. Parcel Post Service began on January 1, 1913. Regulations stated that packages could not weigh more than 50 pounds but did not necessarily preclude the sending of children. On February 19, 1914, the parents of four-year-old May Pierstorff mailed her from Grangeville, Idaho to her grandparents in Lewiston, Idaho. Mailing May apparently was cheaper than buying her a train ticket. The little girl wore her 53-cents worth of postal stamps on her jacket as she traveled in the train's mail compartment.
After hearing of examples such as May, the Postmaster General issued a regulation against sending children by mail. This picture was meant as a humorous image to the end of such practice. (Picture courtesy of the Smithsonian Institute.)

With all the computer issues I have had, I have learned a few things and I thought I would share.
First off I downloaded the two programs below and I run each one once a month. They are free and safe and make a huge difference in how your computer runs.

After purchasing the new computer I wanted to donate my old one to a school but of course you have to be careful that all your personal information is erased and just deleting them is not enough. Fortunately, I found on the clearer program a erase for the hard drive and if you set it to swipe three times you can be reasonably sure that nothing can be brought back to life.

Out with the old and in with the new

Had a nice Christmas Eve with family and daughter brought this darling cake to share...
Sadly it looked better than it was sooooooo sweet!!!
We drove up North Christmas day and had a little white Christmas at Little America. They were super busy with a special brunch and of course packed for dinner but they had pretty decorations like this cute Santa...
and all the pine trees outside were lit up.
Went on to Payson and spent a night there and then home. I put up our Christmas decorations rather late so didn't take them down until today.....will miss this sweet little spot....
It has been unusually cold here and wouldn't you know that we hadn't filled the propane tanks so we couldn't have a fire but got that done today. Heard on the news it is suppose to be up in the 70's this coming week so guess we won't be using it soon.
As you know I had to buy a new computer recently and you know how it is to get use to things and if that wasn't enough we switched from Dish TV to Direct TV due to the problem with Fox News so now we have to learn all the channels and etc. When I told the lady I was discontinuing my service she said "but you have been with us for 12 years!" Must say that I am glad we did, we get twice the reception and almost all the channels are hd and less money for the first year:)
Wrote my first check today with 2015, they just roll by don't they?
On a side note; Horse & Guns magazine published a nice two page article on my hubby in the  Feb/March 2015 issue .
Happy New Year!!
