Laura Bruno – Early August In The Gardens – 3 August 2014

laura-of-the-rocksSome photos from today’s wandering in the yard. 🙂


So far, I love everything about this Serpent Gourd plant! A single plant has covered my 4′ x 8′ trellis, and then some. The leaves are edible; the flowers are innocent and delightful; it’s completely resistant to normal curcubit diseases; and from what I hear, the young gourds are like a white version of zucchini. This will be fabulous, since we mainly use zucchini for making raw food “pasta” or dehydrated “French fries.” We won’t need to explain the green to any skeptical guests. Continue reading

John Ward – Hamas & Palestine: The Blind Bias Of The Believers – 3 August 2014

JohnWA pro-Palestinian lady just tweeted as follows: ‘The 6 year old girl tht lost her father,brother, her legs & her face is 1 among 9000 injured! dnt undristimte word injured!’

Check it out for the weight of rope pulling the heart-strings there: infant, female, father, brother, amputation, face blown away. Check it out for illogicality: 1 appalling injury among 9,000 means all the injuries are being understated.

Now read this outraged tweet from a pro-Palestinian bloke slightly earlier: ‘Grotesque! Elie Weisel accuses Hamas of “child sacrifice”!’ Continue reading

ZeroHedgeWhen a week ago, the third and final Banco Espirito Santo HoldCo went bankrupt

… we knew it was only a matter of time. Sure enough, following Friday’s record collapse in the stock price of Portugal’s mega bank after even Goldman decided it had enough and pulled the plug on an equity investment it had made just three short weeks earlier (apparently with zero Due Diligence) following massive losses, and whose failure even Portugal’s president Silva finally admitted could be a systemic event, the local Diario Economic reports that Banco Espirito Santo is about to be nationalized, i.e. bailed out.

Marilyn Raffaele – The Arcturian Group – 3 August 2014

marilynraffaeleArcturian Group once again wishes to speak of love because understanding the true essence of love is of the utmost importance as the people of earth move forward. The third dimensional belief system holds an infinity of concepts regarding love–none of which are real.

Love is the glue that holds together all of creation–IT is the energy of interconnectedness between all living things within One Divine Consciousness. It is the one energy, substance, and activity flowing in and through seemingly separate life forms, yet is always the ONE because that is all there is-Omnipresence. Continue reading

The Independent

Victim and ex-intelligence agent join call for beefed-up investigation into notorious care home

By James Hanning

Quote: In the glut of allegations of sexual abuse, one care home stands out. At Kincora, a boys’ home in Belfast, three men routinely abused teenage boys in their care for more than a decade. In this case, the abuse is undoubted, as a court confirmed when, in December 1981, William McGrath, the “house father”, Raymond Semple, an assistant warden, and Joseph Mains, warden, were sentenced to four, five and six years respectively for the sexual abuse of children.

Washington Examiner

By T. Becket Adams
