Today

Live your day as if it is your last.

Tomorrow may never come.

Live you life Happily and with love.

For Happiness and love is all you have and it is yours to give.

For if you live your life as if it is nothing

Then you become nothing.

Help those around you.

Don’t loan Money if you know it will never be paid back

give it instead.

If you see someone in need Do something.

For Today May Be your very last day to help a person.

Treat people like you want to be treated.

For if you treat those around you with Happiness and Love they will treat you and others the same.

Complaining about something doesn’t fix the problem take action.

Open your Mind, Everyone has a story.

We are all genetically the same species the outside does not show what is on the inside be happy we are all different.

If we where all the same life would be truly boring.

Oh well!!

Well I should not have bought the greenhouse and I really regret buying it now.  So if you go to Atwoods and see a walk in greenhouse don’t get it The plastic pieces break during high winds even with extra reinforcement . They are cheaply made really expensive (because if they blow down you lose everything you put into it). I was really inconsolable when it first happened and I became incoherent and depressed for several days. I felt as if my heart broke. Because the main reasons I bought it was so 1. I would be out of the weather in a warmer area to start seedlings. 2.I was trying to provide fresh food for my family and seedlings are very important to that cause it wasn’t just my immediate family I was trying to provide for it was all my sisters, my brother, Dad and Wife, and my various Uncles and Aunts. 3. This would have also been a great year to  give to a local food shelter any food that I know I wasn’t going to eat or given to family.4. I love gardening it soothes my soul.  5. I was planing on a flower garden this year because I have a lot of unused area that would have made it nice.

I have a large family they don’t all live here where I live but there is still several people that I live close to and the vegetables would have saved a bunch of money. So I am back a square one with the green house and will have to build something rather sturdy and expensive that I can hardly afford but perhaps I can sell some seedlings to help pay for it not to mention vegetables at the farmers market in town. My husband said he would help me. Now I just have to get my stuff to do it. It will take me a while but at least I will have one.

Women in Politics

Okay, So I am on a role about Women today, but I guess you can say I feel vulnerable today like my rights being a Woman are being trumped my the zealots of Religion  and Men at that. I WILL NOT Bow Down. Where are our Representatives? There are few women in Congress.  In fact I believe the house is made up of 17% women and the Senate is made up of yes only 17% women where is our representation? Men don’t run this country like they should in fact several Women in both houses are being disrespected by their male peers. Many of the issues brought up by these women are really important yet the issues are thrown to the back burner and then forgot by the majority of congress as unimportant.  I mean really the country is made up of at least 55% women that  means there are more women then men in this country. I know there are a lot of women and men for that matter whom wouldn’t do well because they stick their proverbial foot in their mouth but there has to be professionals out there that can speak and be heard by more people.

I would run, but I just don’t have the means to do so and I could be the one to stick my proverbial foot in my mouth. You have to walk on egg shells when running for a political office and well my family isn’t perfect. I am not a christian, I had many boyfriends before I got married and I am sure they would tell everyone that I am a jealous, angry woman  even though they haven’t seen me for 15 years. I am an introvert I care for others feelings but at the same time don’t really care for other feelings when I feel strongly about something. I am for abortion which would kill me  in the polls, I am for women’s rights,  the right to worship anyway a person chooses as long as it is not harmful to others, I believe in taxes its what keeps our roads and infrastructure going, I believe in Welfare as long as they either  go to school, get on birth control, and try to better themselves (I was on welfare for a short time before I got a good job and went to school), I am for regulation of major economic firms that can make the economy collapse, I think the wealthy should pay higher taxes trickle down economics doesn’t work and they put us in this mess to begin with, I believe that the Judicial branch is just as important as the congress (they need balance), I believe that congress should not make more then the averaged person so no more than 40,000- 50,000 dollars a year +  they should pay a portion of their health care like everyone else no freebies(the average person doesn’t get freebies we pay for everything including welfare, social security, Medicare and their salaries and healthcare), I believe that if you fight for this country that you should be able to get the most freedoms at least while you serve ( the freedom to be free of violence from your fellow country men and women (sexual assault is pretty prevalent in the Military for both sexes but especially for women) They should be able to get free healthcare),  I do believe we need to recycle more and treat the planet better because so far we aren’t leaving  here and our children, and their children have to live with the consequences when we pass, I believe we need to produce more of our own goods instead of buying it from china and other countries, if we buy from ourselves we support our economy, I think people should have the right to buy food from any safe source be it raw milk, or an animal butchered from someone else. The list can go on and on.

I am by no means a feminist. I am married to a loving caring man and we have two beautiful children.  I still think my rights as a person and women trump any religious organisation or morals a business has as to whether or not I get the health care I deserve and pay for, I believe women deserve a vote  because we make up 55% of the populous. WE NEED TO SPEAK OUT AND VOICE OUR CONCERNS.

Politics— Women’s Health Issues

I AM WOMAN HEAR ME ROAR!!!!

I hate it when an organization, any organization whether it be religious or other wise tells me that I can’t do something for my own personal health and well being. Take for instance Birth Control which has been in the news lately. I like the new health care law yes it needs tweaks, here and there  but what law doesn’t.  I like the fact that no employer can tell me no I can’t have birth control because it is morally wrong. Because it is my right to plan my own family and to make sure I don’t have a surprise child I can’t support.

If congress has their way so many things will happen I mean think about it what is morally against your beliefs. Would you say tell a smoker he can’t have health care for his cancer he now has from smoking because you never smoked a day in your life or a alcoholic that he can’t get medical treatment for his alcoholism. I know I wouldn’t but I am just that sort of person. I think the medical care should be free to everyone. I think Contraception should be free to all Women they don’t have to use it if they don’t want to but in the same breath no one should tell me I don’t have a right to it. I would rather women had access to Birth Control and Emergency Contraception than have an actual abortion. What about those women that are on contraception that would be affected by this MORAL RELIGIOUS MANDATE I think they would have had abortions rather than have that surprise child. Not that I am against abortion,  I personally wouldn’t do it unless medically necessary, but I think its not my right to choose what other women do. They must choose what is right for them.  Yet if Birth control prevents unwanted pregnancies from happening I am ALL for it it. Better than using abortion like birth control.
