Funny Thought But Sadly True…

What is a rampant rumor called when it is spread among the employed at their place of work; and it lacks credibility or proof, as well as has an element of cruelty?

What? Don’t know? … πŸ˜›

Hint: It spreads unchecked until someone puts a halt to it by refusing to pass it along.

You give up?…

Well… Okay … πŸ˜‰ –>>>>>


Confirmation That I Was In Need Of Not So Recently!!!

FIRST: Let me be clear …

I am NOT a physician or a professional counselor.

I AM a “Teacher” – Certifiable, but not Certified I work as an Educational Assistant.

If you are feeling sad or depressed, please get help! Contact your general practitioner (GP), primary care physician (PCP), or somebody you trust to talk to about your thoughts and feelings!!!!!!

OK … Now to finish my “Thought Train Express” …

Whether we call it, ‘a second opinion’, ‘coincidental insight’ or ‘right where I needed to be, right then’ the confirmation was loud and clear! –>>>

Journal Entry; May 24, 2012: Right now, I am going through something very real, and very sensitive; and IT has a name. IT is called, “Empty Nest Syndrome” … a form of Grief.

Yes, I spoiled them beyond limits! Yes, I laughed uproariously at their antics every day! Yes, We taught each other many things; and from them, I learned patience as well as how to be observant of changes, among many other useful lessons!

YES!!! For a wonderful seventeen (17) years, I showered them both with love at every opportunity that I could create, AND they gave it right back – with interest!!!!

They are my babies!!! A Ray of Light on a cloudy day! A Smile upon my lips just when I thought there was no reason to smile today! YES!!! They ARE my babies and they always will be my babies in memories kept fresh in my heart and recalled when I need a reminder!!!

Yes, on Darkerview.com you will read about a small package of energy that we brought home on Tuesday, July 24: “A New Family Member” by Darkerview. We have seven days to convince her that she is home! She has seven days to establish herself as ‘Alpha’, then… He – Rasalhague – moves in ;-).

Kitten proof?

Oh. Yeah.

Now, I am remembering what that means and what needs to be done! πŸ˜€

Check in often for the start up since all integral parts will have to be set up and again tweaked πŸ™‚

Providing there are GOOD viewing conditions [fingers crossed for Good Luck, PLEASE], W. M. Keck Observatory is streaming video of the Venus Transit all day on June 5, 2012 Hawaii Time from their Mauna Kea Summit situated Observatories! You can also keep up with the events at Keck Observatory here –> Keck Observatory on Facebook! I watched some of the dry run today as Andy tested, tweaked and tested some more. It will be VERY cool providing their bandwidth will handle the viewer load for the day, you can watch it at the link above as much as you want to “tune” in or for as long as you have time for πŸ˜€ Drop by A Darker View now and then where Andy is posting many articles about the Transit as well as many other interesting tidbits of trivia and information πŸ˜€ Do remember to look down occasionally to be sure your feet are still on the ground πŸ˜‰ HAPPY STAR GAZING!!!!


Hmmm. If I could go anywhere, you ask?

I will stay forever right here in Hawai`i. Thank You πŸ™‚
