The simple answer could be as it is written in the book of Hebrews
“Our fathers disciplined us for a short time as they thought best, but God disciplines us for our good, so that we may share in His holiness. No discipline seems enjoyable at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it yields a harvest of righteousness and peace to those who have been trained by it.”
But here’s another way of looking at it.
‘Pain’ in French is bread.
Jesus is the bread of life. He says
I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to Me will never hunger, and whoever believes in Me will never thirst.
P is son of as in Welsh e.g. Pritchard, a surname, is P-Richard, originally Ap Richard, son of Richard.
Ain is ‘own’. It is also the first department in France on an alphabetical list, number one.
I got another badge from WordPress for a 4 day streak. Wonderful! It’s getting colder now the nights are drawing in so keeping moving is helpful to stay warm, especially if you have no clothes on!
Seriously though, I wonder how many days streaking I can do and whether you can get a weekly streak badge too?
Anyway, here’s another page turned into a post as I am working on new things to post.

Human race. Are we winning it yet? Now there’s a good question. To be honest we are not playing fair in this race. Some of us have unfair advantages. Up on my Cloud I have an advantage. I can see all that’s going on, and make my observations, whilst being perfectly safe in my fluffy white Cloud.
Others have an advantage of being incredibly wealthy, so much so they can hardly know what to do with all their wealth. If, of course, one can call it truly theirs.
Look, in the beginning, God, the angels, created the heavens and the earth. So by rights it’s His. The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it. All of it, not some of it. So the wealth of the wealthy is not theirs outright, only borrowed or a gift from God, the Most High.
But what is wealth? All of us have something, if only our bodies. And of course our souls, our precious souls. The Most High gave us those too. He particularly values those as they will live on after death.
What do you do with yours? Do you treasure it or do you think it worthless? Some, many even, seem to care very little for themselves, their souls. And they abuse others in various ways; murder, rape, adultery (of all kinds), lying, etc.
Especially lying. People of the human race seem particularly to lie in all sorts of ways. White lies, black lies and 50 shades of grey in between. At least, not just, 50. I think there must be an infinite number of shades.
Men and women lie to get advantage. They may pretend they are someone else, a con man. They may pretend to have qualifications they haven’t got. Prospective employers are taken in and don’t check the records.
They may lie in bed and have sex with someone, like a bribe, to get advancement in a firm, or in the film industry, for example.
Or just pay money to achieve their aims. And people do love money for some reason. Despite the fact you can’t take it with you when you die.
So what then? When you face the Most High and He asks you what you did with your life and your precious soul. ‘Well your Most Highness, er, um, I did get lots of money.’
He will not be impressed. And you will be cast out into outer darkness, to wail and gnash your teeth.
On the other hand, you may wish to reconsider your position, and do something useful with what you have. Look after those who don’t have the good things you do.
There was a man called Zacchaeus who changed his mind. A small man who had to climb a tree because of the crowd, to get a glimpse of a man called Jesus of Nazareth.
Zacchaeus, whose name means ‘pure’ apparently, was a tax collector and very wealthy. But when Jesus said ‘I must stay with you today’ he was glad. The crowd grumbled at Jesus for wanting to stay with a man they regarded as not worth it.
But Jesus thought he was worth it. And Zacchaeus when he heard the crowd grumbling said he would give away half of his possessions to the poor and pay back four times the value of whatever he had defrauded from anybody.
So Zacchaeus changed and it seems gave away more than his small change!
And Jesus says he, Zacchaeus, is a son of Abraham. Which means he was of Abraham’s family, which is part of the human race.
Jesus also says to certain Jews ‘You are of your father the Devil’. So there are at least two families in the world.
But we are all of the human race, be it from Abraham or the Devil, or another father. We all descended from Adam and Eve, as the bible says.
Of course, you may not believe that, and think that we evolved from apes. In which case you may agree that there is more than one human race, and some races are better than others.
But if you believe what the bible says is true, then it is clear there is only one human race. Then it’s a question of which father, or family you belong to. And families are different, and some families are better than others for various reasons. So how do you tell which is which?
It was a chap called John who said:
‘By this the children of God are distinguished from the children of the devil: Anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is anyone who does not love his brother.’
So whose child are you? God’s or the Devil’s?
It’s your choice.

Going back to the German, hirte can sound like hurter, someone who hurts. And there are the evil shepherds, those who hurt the flock. They are wolves in sheep’s clothing which Ezekiel 34 talks about as Jeremiah in 23 v. 2.
Therefore this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says about the shepherds who tend My people: “You have scattered My flock and driven them away, and have not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for the evil of your deeds, declares the LORD
Interestingly, Francis Schaeffer’s surname derives from Schäfer. He was of part German ancestry which should not be surprising. He co-founded the L’Abri community in Switzerland with his wife Edith.
In the article it says of his legacy which includes the Covenant Theological Seminary establishing the Francis A. Schaeffer Institute, and ‘The purpose of the school is to train Christians to demonstrate compassionately and defend reasonably what they see as the claims of Christ on all of life.’
But why is Schäfer German for shepherd? Because you are ‘safer’ with a shepherd, a good shepherd than without!
In fact an anagram of Schafer is Chr safe. Chr is the first letters of Christ, so you could say in Christ you are safe.
I thought I would re-post this as it only had two views when I released it last year. It may provide some useful insights to anybody who has a problem with the use of Easter rather than following the Hebrew custom of Passover.
I might add on the subject of Easter though, that the problem with it is the commercialisation and the selling of something like an Easter egg. This has lots of fancy wrapping and a pretty box, but with no substance. A hollow egg, albeit usually with some additional chocolates inside.
Compare with the ordinary box of chocolates and weight for weight you are being diddled as we might say in the UK. Taken for a ride if you like.
So if you do want to buy something, whilst pretty wrapping is very nice, why not get something of real value.
In the case of Jesus Christ He is a man of substance. Okay, He calls Himself the Bread of life rather than chocolate, but He is also the Word of God. And as chocolate is a word, this is in Christ too.
I like chocolate if it is good quality. You may be interested in my page on chocolate, link at the end.
But if you want substance, if you hunger after righteousness, the reasons for life and how to live a good, full life then I recommend going to the Word of God, the Bible, and find out about Jesus.
In the meantime here is the original post from last year.
4th April 2021
The day Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. There are plenty of websites which will tell you about this.
You can of course go back to the original story, which you will find recorded in the four gospels of the New Testament. A good translation helps, although I know of none that make a hash of the original Greek to any great extent at least.
But if you have any knowledge of the ancient Greek, best to check the original Greek text if you want to be sure the translations are correct. I find Biblehub very good, although its translations in English are very variable.
I assume the original Hebrew or Greek text is faithful to that originally recorded in the ancient manuscripts. However as I have no access to these I cannot confirm this.
The day is not necessarily the day that Jesus rose from the dead in a transformed body, albeit still a man and still recognisable, although some were confused for some reason which I hope to explain later in another post.
When I say the day that Jesus rose from the dead, I mean not like our birthdays. That is when we celebrate (perhaps!) another passing year of our lives on the same numbered day of the month as when we were born.
His resurrection is related to the Passover of Israelite tradition. I won’t bother to try and explain why the date of Easter varies as defined by the churches, I am sure other websites can explain it well enough, as they do regarding the Passover.
There are those who say that Easter should not be celebrated as it refers to Eostre, a Saxon goddess of fertility, allegedly.
Now Baldmichael put his thinking cap on and started to look more closely at this. I tried anagramming. Most enlightening as usual.
Eostre – ‘Eros et’, Eros meaning ‘god of love and sex’ and et meaning ‘and’ from the French.
Eosturmonath – ‘anoestrum hot’ – meaning anoestrum ‘no sex’ and hot meaning hot! Strictly anoestrum means between heat periods as in animals ‘in heat’ or sexually active. You can look it up.
Or possibley ‘Eostur’ and ‘monath’. As anagram ‘Eros tu’, meaning Eros you, tu as in French ‘tu’ meaning you. Thus ‘Eros you’ or ‘you Eros’.
Monath may be as in ‘monathtry’, like monastery, but with a lisp!!
Now perhaps the Bede was not thinking quite along those lines, but I think he was ‘taking the pith’ as the lisper might say. Therefore I conclude he was making a joke which helps pass the time when there is no sex in a monastery (supposedly)!
Traditionally there has been a period of fasting during Lent, a period of 40 days before Easter when food was often scarce any way. But fasting can be very useful to get rid of toxins built up during the winter months when sunlight is low and vitamin D levels are severely depleted (usually).
Anyway, overtime such jokes made by bored monks or others get magnified by so-called academics who take the story seriously, or those who get the joke and wish to embellish it and see how many fall for it. Which is funny in itself.
Easter eggs and bunnies are associated with Easter. Well, there seems much sense in saying that eggs tend to be laid again by the chickens who take the winter off given half a chance. And rabbits who start producing their litters of babies.
We mustn’t forget that the eggs themselves tend to hatch out and produce cute chicks (cute chicks can be pretty women, but that’s another story!).
These matters are a fact of life, and can be readily observed by those with access to the countryside and farming.
Talking of countryside, there are the villages of High Easter and Good Easter in Essex, part of the Roding valley up which I have cycled; a long time ago it seems now. Good Easter is quietly attractive I believe, as I imagine is High Easter. I love the Essex countryside. It is a lovely calm backwater of England, my beloved England.
High means just that, high up, or relatively high as there are not many parts of Essex that can be considered of any great height.
And Good means, well, good as far as I can tell. So a good part of England then. Makes good sense to me. I say it is good anyway.
But what about Jesus Christ? Well, Easter could be ‘e aster’ as in ‘He a star’ – aster means ‘star’.
And so He is, he is a star. He is one of the Morning Stars who sang together at the dawn of time. He rose again in the morning, at dawn. Perhaps just before dawn so he could see her again, Dawn with a capital ‘D’. He had missed her for 3 days it seems.
And as He is still so well known about in the world, despite the best efforts of Satan and his cronies to hide the facts, He may be considered a star. Like a celebrity only far better than most who are given the title nowadays.
This is because He is humble yet strong, upright and compassionate, a real man among men. And because He is bright, witty, intelligent, a real gent, a royal gentle man. A king of kings, of the throne of King David’s line in Israel.
You can look these statements up yourselves to check what I say, as others have said much about him.
And He came to life again, raised up on the command of the heavenly Father who would not let His Son’s body decay in the tomb.
Such a life He promises to those who follow Him, into His sheepfold, the High and Good Easter. Which is why we have much to celebrate this Easter, which we can do every day in any event.
But it is good to have special days when the weather improves after the cold and relative greyness of winter. And giving gifts is always a good thing, as long as they do not become our ‘gods’.
After all why give thanks to things which are only things, rather than the giver who is God. But who is God?
Why, the heavenly Father who loves to give good things to His Children, despite Satan and his children’s attempts to denigrate Him. How does He give us these things?
Why, through His children, the angels low, of course, both those you see (you and I) and His unseen children, the angels high, who guide us when we listen. So you can and should thank the giver always. If you should be given something you can’t use, pass it on to someone who needs it.
If the gift is not useable for some reason (which is sometimes the case), try being gently honest with the giver so that you encourage them to give something more suitable next time.
But the Father gave His Son that we might have life and have it to the full as Jesus says. A new life, a bit like that we see around us at this time of year, especially if we live in the countryside.
Simnel cakes are often baked at this time and served at Easter. I see from my Cloud and can just smell that my wife down below has baked one. I heard her say that it has risen well.
Like Jesus, The Star, The Celebrity, the Bright Morning Star. He has risen. Hallelujah, He is risen.
Despite being a Protestant on a Catholic island, his faith became an asset. Admiral Cunningham, commander-in-chief of the Mediterranean Fleet, described him as “an Ironside of a man. His profound faith in the justice of our cause made a great impression on the religious Maltese. The complete and calm faith shown in the broadcasts he made nearly every evening contributed immensely towards keeping up the morale of the people”.
42 Anti-aircraft guns to defend Malta in the first week of June 1940, as opposed to the 172 that had been recommended by the Committee of Imperial Defence in July 1939.
Note 42 for Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy fans.
282 The largest amount of air raids in a single month came in April 1942, the worst month of the war for Malta, which saw the destruction of countless well-known landmarks, such as the Royal Opera House in Valletta, although scores of people were spared when a bomb which hit Mosta Church failed to explode.
15,000 Tons of bombs dropped on the Maltese Islands, almost 4 times the amount of bombs dropped by the Allies in the notorious attack on Dresden in February 1945.
6,700 Tons of these bombs were dropped in just 1 month – April 1942.
241 Axis aircraft destroyed by anti-aircraft guns. Another 48 were listed as probably shot down but could not be confirmed.
102 Axis aircraft destroyed by Malta’s anti-aircraft guns in just 1 month! This figure was reached in April 1942.
So you can see the significance of this month, April 1942 in the siege. Perhaps this month, April 2022, will be significant now in the Covid 19 ‘siege’ of the earth as I have noted similarities between WW2 and the Covid 19 crisis.
There is a short film, Malta GC 1942, which gives some insight into the island and what it endured.
The etymology of the word Malta is very interesting.
The most common etymology is that the word Malta is derived from the Greek word μέλι, meli, “honey”. The ancient Greeks called the island Μελίτη (Melitē) meaning “honey-sweet”, possibly for Malta’s unique production of honey; an endemic subspecies of bees live on the island.
The honey connection reminds me of Samson, a strong man whom God strengthened, and his riddle, part of which is ‘…out of the strong came forth sweetness.’
Thus we may see in the case of Malta, out of the strong island, the strength of its people relying on the strength of God to endure the hardships and eventually win through.
The other interesting thing is that Malta can be M’altar, my altar if you will. Altar is a high place.
This reminds me of today, Good Friday, when the Man Jesus Christ was hung on what is usually called a cross, but in truth a tree, a ‘T’ tree with a little head board. It was a dead tree is essence, a carpenter’s tree.
It was on a hill, a high place with two other ‘trees’ on which hung two other men, two criminals. One cursed God; the other knew he had done wrong and asked Jesus to remember him.
Malta received the George Cross for ‘…heroism and devotion that will long be famous in history.’
Jesus received the equivalent of the Victoria Cross, or Victorious Cross we might say, the V.C. for heroism and devotion that is famous in history. He endured the cross, in reality a stake from the Greek word stauron. This was because there was so much at stake, the people of the world to be freed from sin by His death, so that forgiveness could be given.
The V.C. might be considered to have been awarded posthumously. But then it is claimed He rose from the dead, so that would not make sense.
And, as the battle was far from over at the time Malta was awarded the George Cross, so the spiritual battle was not over, as those who follow Jesus continue to fight it to this day.
I will end with William Dobbie’s words in a note inserted into copies of the New Testaments given to the troops stationed in what was then called Palestine in 1929. His office over looked Golgotha.
You are stationed at the place where the central event in human history occurred – namely the crucifixion of the Son of God. You may see the place where this happened and you may read the details in this book. As you do this, you cannot help being interested, but your interest will change into something far deeper when you realise the events concern you personally. It was for your sake the Son of God died on the cross here. The realisation of this fact cannot but produce a radical change in one’s life – and the study of this book will, under God’s guidance, help you to such a realisation.
P.S. Please not William Dobbie was GOC, General Officer Commanding, in Singapore before WW2. He made some interesting observations re the defence of the city. If he had been listened to perhaps the island would not have fallen in the way it did.
For my analysis and somewhat amusing take on the fall of Singapore, here is a link.
P.P.S. If you want more on Jesus etc., please see my refectory section in my World Menu.
But then Jesus crops up all over the place, and you will find Him elsewhere too. He is full of surprises!
I wish to remember this brave man today, the anniversary of his death 80 years ago. He was an Austrian like the ‘Führer’ Adolf Hitler, but someone who gave up his life to save others. You can find more about him here. It is not too long.
He was born in January 1900 so was 42 years old at the time of his death. he is said to have been
A devout but apolitical Roman Catholic and an electrician by profession
German historian Wolfram Wette describes him as a non-ideological humanitarian whose opposition to Nazism stemmed purely from his respect for human life.
He was one of only three Wehrmacht soldiers who were executed for helping Jews.
The trial record did not survive, so researchers are unsure who denounced him or exactly what offenses he was charged with.
Please excuse the pun, but he was an electrician and he was put on a charge!
Again I note
In his final letter to his family, Schmid wrote, “I have just acted as a human and I did not want to hurt anyone.”
He made this statement to a Jew he helped.
We all must die. But if I can choose whether to die as a murderer or a helper, I choose death as a helper.
There is a plaque in his memory
“Here Rests A Man Who Thought It Was More Important To Help His Fellow Man Than To Live”.
There is this comment.
Wolfram Wette described Schmid as “one of the gold grains hidden under the heap of rubble” in the history of Nazi Germany, as there were so few Germans willing to risk their lives to help Jews.
It should be noted that
As of 2009, the Third Reich’s treason convictions of Wehrmacht soldiers have not been annulled.
Is this still the case? If so we ought to ask ourselves why.
In this week when many people remember what is called the passion of Jesus Christ, we remember someone else who gave His life to save others, to set an example.
But today remember Anton if you will, who gave his life willingly, a man who obeyed the two great commandments to love God and love his neighbour as himself.
He did not love his earthly life so much that he was not willing to give up his physical life in the service of others, like his lord Jesus.
I bow my head to you dear Anton. Thank you so much.
P.S. See you at the resurrection.
P.P.S. As 42 is the ultimate answer to all ultimate questions, and as Anton was 42 years old when he died what is the ultimate question in this case? Answers on a post card or back of an envelope and mail them to yourself or anyone else you fancy.
Or not, as the case may be. Alternatively try this.
And don’t forget that you can have rice pudding, which if made correctly is delicious. Indeed, there is a brand of rice pudding called Ambrosia. Ambrosia was said to be the food of the gods. You can see the link to Jesus I hope.
Anagrams of these words are:
Feu spirit – fire spirit (feu is ‘fire’ in French). Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit who is described as a fire, who sets our tongues alight to tell the truth in love.
If I purest – Jesus is said to have been tempted, yet without sin. Hebrews 4:15
U spitfire – He is the fire of God. ‘The Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire.’ Revelation 2:18
Anagrams of this word are:
As priest – He is the high priest. ‘Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God…’ Hebrews 4:14 part
As stripe – by His stripes we are healed. 1 Peter 2:24
As esprit – esprit is ‘spirit’ in French.
As ripest – He is the fruit at its best.
Ipse star – himself star
Psi stare – psionic
But what about fresh fruit?
Anagrams of this word are:
If RTU – RTU can be according to Wikipedia
‘A remote terminal unit (RTU) is a microprocessor-controlled electronic device that interfaces objects in the physical world to a distributed control system or SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition)system by transmitting telemetry data to a master system, and by using messages from the master supervisory system to control connected objects. Other terms that may be used for RTU are remote telemetry unit and remote telecontrol unit.’
Or to put it more simply He connects us to God the Father!
If rut – if you are in a rut, turn to Jesus.
I turf – sound like Jesus is very ‘turf’, one ‘turf’ cookie!
A strong, determined person who is not easily intimidated, discouraged, or defeated.
Why have Jesus in here as well as mains and dessert? Why not, I think He deserves it. He did say you pore over the Scriptures because you presume that by them you possess eternal life. These are the very words that testify about Me.
Anyway, in my books there are various starters you can have. How about the following:
Any kind of soup you like. You see, I think Jesus is ‘souper’ or super!!
Well, He did say I am the bread of life, and in France they serve bread at the beginning of the meal.
Well, olive is ‘o live’. Like life, and a ‘v’ is phoenetically an ‘f’ in German. Jesus said he is the way the truth and the life.
‘Al sad’ is an anagram.
‘Al’ is related to angel, so we have ‘angel sad’. Jesus was the Father’s Angel, His beautiful one.
It is said of Jesus ‘He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, acquainted with grief. Like one from whom men hide their faces, He was despised, and we esteemed Him not.’
In this world of masks today, how many hide their faces from Him, and those who follow Him, behind their masks?
Of course, I have said Alpha in the heading. This can be broken down to ‘Al pha’. This sounds like ‘Al far’, as an abbreviation of ‘angel of the Father’.
How about this? Sala is a hall in Spanish. The whole is ‘sala d’. This can be the hall of d, as is hall of daddy. So we have a hall, the entrance to a house of the Father. Jesus says in my Father’s house there are many rooms.
Entrées is of course another word for starters. An entrée is an ‘entrance’ in French.
And Jesus did say I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
So why not go to Jesus, open the door and find out what is inside (or is it outside?), a wide, wide pasture where there are pleasures for evermore.
I did, and I can tell you it is very well worth doing.
And there is plenty to eat!
P.S. If you would like a little soup song, or as the French might say ‘un soupçon’ soup song (!). why not try this. I have never heard it before. I think it is very good.
This is very brief, as I have just read the following link. It is true of the USA, but also true of other countries too, including the UK.
It is from the website Simple Truth by a lady called Lynnette. I follow this website.
It is about the USA social services and the abuse therein by the system itself, the system to supposedly protect children from harm and abuse.
I have not researched in detail but I know this goes on elsewhere as I have incinerated indicated. The depth of this will no doubt vary from state to state.
Please do read it and tell others to wake them up to what is going on. Whatever you can do to help expose and kill the beast and deal with the criminals behind it will be very welcome, no matter how small.
1st April 2022 – April Fools Day. N.B. I can be foolish, but this is no joke, believe me!
Well, do they it? Sanitiser doesn’t. I have seen the loonies rubbing their hands with it like Pontius Pilate or Lady Macbeth and thinking they will now be ‘guilt free’ of bringing stupidity upon the masses and supposedly preventing infection.
And, of course, it does not make them any saner! They are still as mad as ever, if not worse.
Here is a video of Lady Macbeth realising that hand washing etc won’t do any good against Covid 19. It is turning her mad. It is rather disturbing and not for the faint hearted.
I wonder if other women will feel the same when they realise they have been fooled?
Anyway, it should be pointed out that all these so-called sanitisers are, in theory at least, around to prevent infection. From what exactly? A virus? Covid 19?
Well, in case anyone hasn’t noticed yet, these sanitisers are by and large anti-bacterial, not anti-viral. So what was the use eh?
Fine (possibly) if you were reducing bacteria but pointless, utterly pointless, against a virus, or Covid 19. Covid 19, a.k.a. the ‘flu after rebranding in 2020.
Viruses as I keep saying, are chemical not biological.
Firms will say they produce anti-viral sanitisers, but then they would, wouldn’t they? Since when has anybody sold you something to deal with something you cannot see been truly trustworthy? A case of the emperor’s new clothes.
If you can’t see to check yourself if they actually work, you must be suspicious.
So we have all these pointless plastic containers, which will need to be disposed of (there are enough problems with plastics as it is), containing something inexpensive but no doubt sold at some exorbitant price for what they are. I have never bought any, so I haven’t double checked the prices.
Add up the money wasted on these and pointless masks, pointless visors, pointless vaccines (except of course vaccines are administered via points or needles) and you have a huge waste of money which could have been far better spent on good untainted food and drink etc.
And testing for vitamin D deficiency, the true pandemic in a physical sense.
Add to this the fact that sanitisers are merely breaking down the natural oils on your skin that protect you and you have a recipe for disaster.
Bizarrely or not depending on your point of view, the word sanitiser or sanitizer has lots of clues to the pointlessness, if not harm, caused by these products.
a sinister – obvious I hope.
Aries snit – Snit is ‘A state of agitation or irritation.’ Aries is a ram so implies ramming your head against a brick wall in the vain attempt to remove the problem.
Geigy’s poor financial performance called into question its survivability outside the cartel. During the 1950s, however, the full market potential of DDT was realized. Suddenly profitable, Geigy expanded its market in agri-chemicals by introducing a corn herbicide called triazine.
er it’s Nazi – just in case you don’t already get the point.
What about hand washing? Well, as I said in my post G is for…..guidance, how often were you supposed to wash anyway? Did you not wash your hands anyway? Could you not use common sense? But not to wash your hands in because that makes no sense.
But hand washing too often will damage the natural oils on your skin and cause problems. And will not stop the ‘flu or Covid 19 as it is now called, the internal toxicosis of the body. It will help against bacteria, but won’t remove toxic chemicals as such.
As I say, sanitisers do not work, they do not make people saner, merely madder.
And I do hope you will be getting madder about the huge fraud perpetrated on you if you have succumbed to the government advertising to use sanitisers etc. You have wasted your money, so have the NHS and other government departments. If you pay tax they have wasted your money.
Of course, you must also blame yourself if you do, because you should have checked in on your brain, shouldn’t you?
I worked this out in June 2020, and if I can, anybody can.
Perhaps now we can get down to dealing with the other problems in the world and enjoy life properly.
And be sane for once.
P.S. Here are various links on sanitisers or sanitizers for you to look at.
‘But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these things defile a man.’ Matthew 15 v 18.
I want to look at these verses and the associated text which you can read yourselves elsewhere.
Let’s get straight down to brass tacks as they say.
There are two aspects to this.
The body is defiled or poisoned by what comes out of it, rather than what goes into it. This may seem strange at first sight but is quite straightforward.
The waste we produce, primarily urea in urine and bile etc in faeces is toxic to us. It must be excreted or we get poisoned/constipated. As I might say, it bungs up the works!
The soil can make good use of our waste but not our bodies.
As an aside, we should not waste our dung as it is great fertiliser, and does nothing but pollute water courses if we dump it there as people still do.
Anyway, this does not imply we should poison ourselves with toxic chemicals, whether deliberately or via food and drink chemically treated and spoiled by big pharmaceutical industries products such as sodium nitrite and artificial sweeteners, for example.
Nor should we swallow or inject narcotics in the form of heroin etc or those the doctors supply us with from big pharma.
But even these poisons can be counteracted by antidotes, so strictly it is our bodies’ reactions to these toxins that defiles or injures us.
The body’s reaction is necessary of course, it is part of life, but this is why it is true that strictly it is what comes out of us that defiles us physically.
The soul is defiled or poisoned by what comes out of it in similar fashion. It is the words we say that defile or poison us, our souls, our hearts, if we retain them in our spirits rather than disposing of them in the equivalent of the spiritual toilet.
Believe it or not, as a ‘john’ in the States is slang for a toilet and John means ‘God is gracious’; it is God Himself who takes our crap, our shit if you will.
This is what Jesus did on the cross, strictly the ‘T’ for tree, and we must take all this rubbish we produce to Him for disposal.
It is written
‘But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.’
This might be better translated
‘But He was polluted for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.’
All of this does not mean we feed our souls rubbish for as Paul the apostle says ‘Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think on these things.’
So you see, that is the meaning behind Jesus’s words. If you are overly refined you may not appreciate this humour, but our bodies have arse holes and these are to dispose of our physical waste.
Our spirits have ‘our soles’ via which we must dispose of our spiritual waste!
And Jesus has taken it all!!!
That’s it really. What else can one say?
‘Thank you Jesus, ever so much, I am eternally grateful’ would be a good start.
The heavenly Father will be glad about that and then you can go and tell others, can’t you?
P.S. If you are interested, there is more on Jesus etc in THE REFECTORY to be found under the World Menu towards the bottom of the page.
Or indeed an ‘It’. Or is He a ‘He it’? Or a ‘She it’?
Or maybe a Hesheit? Confusing, eh? Well, not if you look closely at the matter, at least from the Bibles point of view.
But the problem is we don’t. Look closely that is. We have translations so the original text, but only in recent times has the internet given us access to the original Hebrew and Greek to help us understand more clearly.
In fact even in the translations it is fairly straightforward if you handle the words carefully, rather than jumping to conclusions.
It doesn’t help that men and women can be at loggerheads over this, the battle of the sexes as it were, Venus and Mars having a ding dong battle, rather than dancing round each other in mutual admiration, holding hands (or not).
Anyway, interestingly in the original Hebrew in the first verse of the Bible it says phonetically ‘A bereshit’. So maybe be God is a shit!!!
Or may be God just ‘shat’ down as God hath a lithp!!!
Nevertheless in the Bible God is considered as He, but this does not mean He is purely male or masculine in character.
After all, men are said to have a feminine side, and some men realise they are not in tune with it.
Of course, the truth is that God is male and female. It says as much in the first chapter of Genesis.
“Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness, …”
“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”
The word for image in Hebrew is bet-tseh’-lem in the phonetics. Which I only now realise as I type is incredibly like Bethlehem!!! Where Jesus was born!!!!!!!
Amazing! (add as many ! as you please). This is the Hebrew word below.
The symbols represent in sequence right to left, a house with a son or child (the dot in the middle), a tree or perhaps a bush, an angel, and a solid form. The last is a bit like a head with a quiff of hair!
You see, we are children of God, like trees, walking trees (we have bodies we call trunks), we are angels in spirit (some good, some bad) and we have a solid form that can be touched physically.
If we go back to the word for God, this is strictly a plural but a unified plural, equivalent to a family unit, that is a husband and wife, male and female.
Actually our understanding is that in the genes of humans, the male of the species has a ‘Y’ and an ‘X’ chromosome.
The female has 2 X of course. In the creation story the woman comes out of the man, Adam. The Lord God took an ‘X’ chromosome and fashioned the woman, whom Adam called Eve.
The female has 2 X. This is where ‘Let him (or her) who has ears to hear, let him (or her) let him (or her) hear’ comes in. X sounds like ‘eggs’. The female has two ovaries producing eggs. No doubt you will say ‘Eggactly’!!!
In the first verse of Genesis (or Genes is) the first letter in the Hebrew text is considered to be a Bet. Strictly this in incorrect as there is another before this, separate from the main text. It represents the number 1.
It is an Aleph, the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet. This is represented by a type of ‘X’ thus:
If you look closely at the Biblehub text you will see perhaps an image of slope, a hill side. There is a river coming out at the bottom left hand side and a tree to the right hand side.
The top of the tree is like an apostrophe and forms part of the other letters if you look closely.
There is one which stands on its own, the Yud, or Yod (like Yoda!!)
The Yud is the tenth letter and represents the heavenly Father as ‘floats’ as it were on the top line, floating in the heavens if you will.
The heavens from the text are considered masculine I understand.
The earth is considered feminine.
Strictly therefore we might consider as a pictogram the text saying ‘First there was an egg. In the egg was a seed, an apostrophe if you like which floating off became ‘Yud’ or ‘Yod’.
So in the beginning was God, one, both male and female in nature. They, in a sense, separated.
But they can be considered as a marriage, a marriage in the mind of God, two yet one or 1.
The theme continues in the word ‘Elohim’ or ‘Aleim’. It is considered masculine, but plural. The aleph and the yud are there, 2 of the 5 letters. The other letters can be explained but not here.
There are in fact 7 alephs in the first verse. 7 is the number of completeness.
The heavens is a covering for the earth, and represents the heavenly Father protecting the earth, the feminine side like the husband protects the wife. The earth is His beauty, His blue/green jewel in the heavens with fluffy white clouds.
But the earth, like a mother, is the source and nourisher of mans’ body, whether they are male or female. The spirit, the soul, comes from the Father. The two become one, as a Man and a Woman become one in marriage. This is why marriage is so important to Mankind as it is part of God’s own character.
It is also why the same-sex couples Act in the UK etc. is such a nonsense; it does not represent God. It is merely that whining scoundrel (I am being polite) Satan’s deceit on the nations.
Anyway, again we might write God as ‘god’. The ‘g’ represents the earth, the female, its tail down as it were into the ground.
The ‘d’ represents the heavens, the heavenly Father, its tail towards the sky or space.
In the middle is an ‘o’. This represents a bond of love between the two natures of God, the male and female.
It is like a ring, the circle of life and like a ring we use in marriage, a symbol of what marriage is intended to be.
Of course, Jesus came as a Man, and the witness of the apostles is that in Him is the fullness of God, so both male and female.
It is written ‘O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those sent to her, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were unwilling!’
In welsh hen is ‘old’, so the sense is old mother hen fussing over her chicks, protecting them under her wings.
But then the real Man has both aspects, in his genes and to be expressed in his character as protector. Perhaps a resolute protector like me!!
Whether Jesus was partly bald is highly debatable, we are not told. Whether the heavenly Father would be bald if He came to earth is also highly debatable!
As to whom Michael is as an archangel is written about, although there is very limited text in the Bible, some suggest it refers to Jesus.
Anyway, if Jesus was Michael and says ‘He who has seen Me has seen the Father’, then would the Father be a bald Michael, as in like father, like son?
Now there’s a thought.
But as to whether God is He or She, well, we say He because He is simpler and easier than saying ‘Heshe’ or ‘Heesh’. Unless perhaps we have been drinking too much alcohol and have become drunk!
As in ‘For heesh a jolly good fellow’ etc etc.
I don’t recommend drunk by the way, rots the liver etc. etc.
And we say ‘He’ because the husband, the male, is responsible for the protection of the female and that’s how it was meant to be. Most women underneath all the feminist bravado (or should that be bra-vado!) want security.
But a good marriage is a partnership where husband and wife dance as it were around each other, complimenting each other in their skills, as well as complimenting each other with praise and thanks.
And in space the heavens revolve round the earth as the earth spins like a dance. The heavenly Father round the earth Mother if you will.
But please note we do not worship the earth or Mother earth. We are to cherish the earth like a mother, tend and care for her as she sustains our bodies as the heavenly Father sustains our souls, our spirits.
In fact, the heavenly Father never asked for worship as such. He really just wanted to be a friend, to have His children as friends. So it is written Abraham was the friend of God.
And don’t forget the two greatest commandments; ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’ and ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’
There is no mention of worship. But we give thanks to God because we are grateful, not because He demands it. And we can be grateful for the earth as Mother.
But stick with God as He, whilst remembering that He has His male and feminine side.
And if you think sometimes God can be a bit, well, shitty, just recall that in the beginning He ‘shat’ down. And accidents will happen!!!
A final thought. If you were to hear God laugh I think you would hear Him go ‘He, he, he!
A song by Toto. Not the dog in ‘The Wizard of Oz’’ however.
Nevertheless here is a singing dog, a husky which is used at the start of a song by ‘The Kiffness’. The song is called ‘X Haiku, The Husky’ I understand.
I have found some fascinating insights whilst looking at the word husky but I will not cover here. But here is a photo which I like.
The protesters across the world need to hang on and hold the line against the evil elites. Trudeau in Ottawa is a prime example. I thought I would remind you of this song which I love. I have the single on vinyl.
Here are the lyrics.
It’s not in the way that you hold me
It’s not in the way you say you care
It’s not in the way you’ve been treating my friends
It’s not in the way that you’ll stay till the end
It’s not in the way you look or the things that you say that you do
Hold the line
Love isn’t always on time
Whoa oh oh
Hold the line
Love isn’t always on time
Whoa oh oh
It’s not in the words that you told me
It’s not in the way you say you’re mine
It’s not in the way that you came back to me
It’s not in the way that your love set me free
It’s not in the way you look or the things that you say that you do
Hold the line
Love isn’t always on time
Whoa oh oh
Hold the line
Love isn’t always on time
Whoa oh oh
It’s not in the words that you told me
It’s not in the way you say you’re mine, oooh
It’s not in the way that you came back to me
It’s not in the way that your love set me free
It’s not in the way you look or the things that you say that you do
Hold the line
Love isn’t always on time
Whoa oh oh
Hold the line
Love isn’t always on time
(Love isn’t always on time)
Hold the line
Love isn’t always on time
(Love isn’t always, love isn’t always on time)
Hold the line
Love isn’t always on time
Love isn’t always on time
Love isn’t always on time
Love isn’t always on time
Whoa oh oh
And here are some encouraging words to go with the song.
It is written
“The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms…”
“In the same way, the Son of Man did not come to be served. He came to serve others and to give His life as a ransom for many people.”
“You are my friends if you do what I command you. I do not call you servants any longer, because the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends.”
“And behold I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
“Jesus looked at him, loved him, and said to him, ‘There is one thing you lack: Go, sell everything you own and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow Me.’”
“Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise.”
“Therefore take up the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you will be able to stand your ground, and having done everything, to stand.”
“Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth.”
“I am the way the truth and the life.”
“I am the good shepherd. I know My sheep and My sheep know Me,”
“At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus. He asked her, ‘Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?’ Thinking he was the gardener, she said, ‘Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.’ Jesus said to her, ‘Mary.’ She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, ‘Rabboni!’ (which means ‘Teacher’).”
“The truth will set you free.”
“I am the way the truth and the life”
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.”
“Perfect love casts out fear.”
“God is Love”
So there you are. And don’t forget Love isn’t always on time.
“No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”
“Behold, I am coming soon, and My reward is with Me, to give to each one according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”
So until then
“Therefore take up the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you will be able to stand your ground, and having done everything, to stand.”
Except of course the heavenly Father stands with you and fights for you as does His beautiful Boy who became a Man, Christ Jesus. Perhaps they are among you now anyway and you don’t know it.
Hold the Line.
P.S. Here is a link to ‘Hold the line’ by Toto.
Here is further link leading to my truckers’ convoy posts for those who haven’t seen them.
I was inspired by the following post. I think it is very good.
Bras. They can go. Or can they?
By atribeofwomen on December 28, 2020
By Europe & Me‘s MythBuster
I note that the article was written by a Myth Buster. I thuppose she had a listhp!! And a very appropriate name with Bust-er!!!
Tho, sorry, so I thought I had better have a look as it were at the issue. Purely for research mind. I do like to keep a breast of things.
I doubt my wife will need my advice, but I would hate to make a myth-take or boob. And I don’t want to be a complete tit.
Anyway, here are the 4 main points in the article which I will use as my template. I quote from the text in italics, but do check the article anyway.
#Myth 1: Life was better off before the invention of bras
First off, bras were invented relatively recently. A certain French lady called Herminie Cadolle got sick of wearing stifling corsets — as all women must have been — and invented a two-part corset in 1889. Her invention was much more functional and (crucially) allowed breathing. She actually called her invention bien-être, which means wellbeing! In comparison to corsets which served the primary purpose of tightening the waist as much as possible to valorise hips and boobs, I’m sure the name was well deserved.
Well actually bras were invented a lot longer ago than 1889. Perhaps you didn’t realise?
Yes, you see in the book of Genesis Chapter 1 verse 1 it says in the Hebrew בְּרֵא א. Now, bear in mind they read right to left.
In the English this is equivalent to A bra!!! The first letter is ignored in translations because it is the Aleph used as the number 1, but it does count in this case (you can count numbers obviously!).
בָּרָ֣א is used again in the same verse so you have two bras!! One spare one I suppose.
So it is very reasonable to say that God, the angels, invented bras!!!
And don’t forget that in French, the word for arm is ‘bras’. Herminie Cadolle who invented the two-part corset as the article states was French.
Fascinatingly, her name has an anagram of ‘Eh moi Cinderella’. This makes sense, as Cinderella could now go to the ball in comfort!!! (you couldn’t make this up, could you??!).
And don’t forget that at a ball there may well be candela-bras to provide light to the event!
I have to say, I don’t know how any woman could stand wearing the corset which the bra replaced. The corset was I understand stiffened by whale bones. I really don’t think women would have a ‘whale’ of a time in them!!
I note that escort is an anagram of corset. Perhaps prostitutes use them as ‘Escorts’.
And also note the following part anagrams:
Eros – they were used for seduction
Sore – they could be uncomfortable
Rose –they could enhance your beauty.
A few years later, the New Yorker Mary Phelps patented the first bra as we know it. She made it by sewing two handkerchiefs and some ribbons together. And why you ask? She wanted to dance and be able to move comfortably in her ball gown without the pain inflicted by corsets. Fair enough.
The above proves my point re Cinderella. And again, anagramming Mary Phelps produces the following among others.
Ply hampers – well modern bras are made of layers I believe, so this makes sense (hampers contain delicious things to eat!!). Honestly, you couldn’t make this up!
Hyper psalm – meaning ‘beyond a song of praise’. Women have no doubt been singing their praises (on the whole I imagine).
A helps my PR – and of course this means helps your Public Relations. A good bra does that.
In fact there are specific girls it can help including:
helps Amy PR helps May PR helps yr Pam
They might even help gentlemen pay, but pay what I don’t know.
helps Mr pay
#Myth 2: Everyone understands bra sizes
Consultations with a non-representative sample of all my friends show that many do not know their bra size (including yours truly).
I’ll just check. Mmm, nope don’t know. Hang on, silly me I’m a man so I don’t need a bra (unless you are speaking in French, in which case I have two strong arms, let me help).
A little bit of research also shows that bra sizes have fluctuated over the course of history. Beyond tailor-made bras, the original two sizes of the first bra slowly evolved towards Small to Large sizes until the introduction of cup sizes in the 1930s. These were far from today’s supposedly accurate sizes. Interestingly, cup sizes, as they are today, were officially introduced in 1975 in the European Common Market. Apparently, some British women were very confused by their introduction, “handed down from the antiseptic Common Market headquarters in Brussels”. Brushing aside the fact that priorities in the British public discourse remain straight at all times, it is worth pointing that bra sizes are not the same across the board. Like with any other clothes design, each brand has their own fitting system.
This goes to show how faceless bureaucrats in Brussels can make a boob of boob support. You really can’t legislate or regulate boobs, it just isn’t on, you know. And faceless bureaucrats in Brussels are a load of boobies, and we have no control over them.
But in the UK we are out of the EU are now trying to disentangle ourselves from the mess.
This is the article link re Common Market. I haven’t found anything of direct reference to any original regulations.
More seriously, though, have you always had the same bra size? If so, it is probably wrong. Unsurprisingly bodies change and evolve over time – and so do boobs (I mean they can literally evolve on a weekly to daily basis but that’s another topic). It is important to consider because wearing the wrong bra size may potentially lead to muscle pains, back tensions and other things far from the essential wellbeing Herminie thought a bra should bring. So, when buying a bra, take your time, try it on if you can, don’t hesitate to return it if it doesn’t fit and ask for advice. There’s no shame in not knowing your size.
It should be pointed out that even individual boobs vary sometimes, the left from the right and vice versa. My wife’s do somewhat and from time to time I check just to make sure. That’s my excuse anyway.
I won’t venture into medical advice here; as my speciality is myth busting not medical care. However, I will point out that this myth dates back to 1995 when a book called dressed to Kill made that claim.
Personally I doubt very much that bras would do this, although they might affect your lymphatic system to a degree if poorly fitting.
But what is of much greater concern and this makes me really, really angry, is that cancers have by and large arisen out of the increasing toxins in the environment.
And therefore the cancer issue and treatment is basically a scam to promote the nasty (and Nazi) chemo drugs from big pharma.
I became aware of this because of my own (false) diagnosis by the NHS of a cancer in my neck. I now know this to be down to sodium nitrite in processed meat (bacon primarily) which leads to nitrosamines, a far more toxic product.
In my research I spoke to and had a session with a herbalist. She said that the mastectomy industry was merely licensed butchery which I knew by then was true. Utterly evil.
Angela Jolie apparently had her breasts removed due to an apparent risk of a so called inherited disease, but I am deeply suspicious about this as regards inherited diseases. It may well be down to toxic poisons but without further research it is difficult to tell.
However, I don’t suppose the medical industry which profits from this will want to look at this. The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.
On a somewhat lighter note, when I heard Angela Jolie had had her mastectomy, I said to my wife ‘Well, if she doesn’t want them perhaps I could have them!’ After all they would make something comfortable to rest my head against in the bath!
#Myth 4: Bras are an embodiment of the patriarchal control over women’s bodies
Well, that is a tough one and I’m still making up my mind on it really.
They are in reality, or perhaps I should say real-a-titty, an embodiment or embodicement as bodice was an early form of support for women, of how women want to present themselves to men.
I rather doubt that is men who are trying to control women with bras etc. They would however, if they are like me, be quite happy to wrap their arms (or bras in French), round women to provide the necessary support.
And of course many men do like round women as they can be comfortable to be with.
As with all of us experiencing with fashion, bras have had ups and downs: periods they’d rather forget, rebellious periods and periods threading the line of sexiness obsession. But in all of these evolutions and throughout the bra history, I see women creating, designing, innovating and putting themselves first.
Indeed, bras have their ups and downs. Or as I like to put it, there are times when things go tits up, and times when they go tits down.
The 1920s flapper trend saw the emergence of bras used to flatten the breasts’ curves at a time when looking boyish was all the craze. On the other hand, the 1950s cone bras, solely designed with aesthetics in mind, allowed boobs to appear larger and pointier to fit to the glamour style of the times. If you don’t know what I mean, I’m sure Madonna will refresh your mind. And that’s an excellent example of re-appropriating a design and infusing it with a high dose of feminine power.
Which is perhaps the point in pointy bras, to make the point that women want to try and point out to men that they, women, want power. But women have always known how to use that power if they want to. Fluttering of the eyelids can be used to devastating effect I understand.
As regards ‘…the emergence of bras used to flatten the breasts’ curves…’ this reminds me of today and the flattening of the coronavirus Covid 19 curve. This I observe is part of the flapper trend of 2020’s when many people got in a flap over the ‘flu (honestly, you really, really couldn’t make this up!).
As mentioned before, the first bras were invented by women for women and with comfort and freedom of movement in mind. Interestingly, this is also the case of the sports bra, invented in 1975 because running with bras was so damn uncomfortable. Yet, it was then was seen as a feminist step towards getting rid of the torture devices that were bras.
I am not quite sure why it was a feminist step. It just seems plain common sense. But women will torture themselves unnecessarily to please the menfolk, even if they haven’t asked the said menfolk whether it is actually what the said menfolk want a female to do.
I certainly don’t want women to torture themselves, there is enough pain in the world thank you very much, without you adding more pain to your lives. Be kind to yourselves ladies, be kind.
And when you think about it, who in their right mind would invent conic bras for pleasure? And who thought push-ups would be an excellent idea, really just what I was missing this whole time? It is probably fair to say that, while women may have been more prominent in the bra industry compared to other industries, we’ve come a long way since the first bra design and I doubt comfort, practicality and self-care have always been a priority since… Displaying and sexualising a body part that men tend to be obsessed with on the other hand likely came into the picture. Shocking.
Again, I really do think women must share a part in the blame for this. You really don’t have to follow fashion. I don’t but then I’m a MAN, so what do I know? Quite a lot actually.
Whether we’re only slowly opening the carcan of boob oppression or reinventing ways of empowering women, the jury is still out. Either way, I think this is heading towards positive change. And the rising number of brands launching with the sole purpose of creating comfortable, practical, pretty and all-round satisfying underwear is making me hopeful about those remerging bra days. I won’t lie though, the real change will come about when pointy nipples are allowed into the meeting room.
The reference to carcan means the bra as an instrument of torture. Well, I hardly think it is that. However, if it is ill-fitting then of course it is torture. But are you self-inflicting pain on yourselves?
Cancra anagram is singular of cancrum meaning crab in Latin. Which means ‘cancer’ as in the star symbol. And cancer is a torture inflicted on us by toxins in the environment made worse by big pharma and its wretched so-called treatments.
Anyway, have a heart women; men need to be considered in the equation. Pointy nipples are great but men like me do get distracted by them, perhaps women do to. It is like another pair of eyes, and women’s eyes are beautiful.
Unless the women are bad as the eyes are the lamp of the soul as Jesus said.
‘But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!’
So going back to Genesis (which means in essence ‘origins’) we had בְּרֵא א A bra. This can be broken down into
א = a =God
בְּ = b = son
רֵ = r = father
א = a = God.
The whole is ‘God son, father God’. Jesus said I and the Father are one.
And it is written ‘The eternal God is your dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms.’
I say to all you beautiful ladies, great and small, your breasts are in your hands as it were, as regards bras or no bras. But you are in the arms or bras of God.
So in the beginning God bras…
P.S. If you would like, why not listen to this by Billy Swan, ‘I can help’
Here are the lyrics, they say it all.
If you got a problem, don’t care what it is
If you need a hand, I can assure you this
I can help, I got two strong arms
I can help
It would sure do me good, to do you good
Let me help
It’s a fact that people get lonely, ain’t nothing new
But a woman like you, baby should never have the blues
Let me help, I got two for me
It would sure do me good, to do you good
Let me help
When I go to sleep at night you’re always a part of my dream
Holding me tight and telling me everything I wanna hear
Don’t forget me baby, all you gotta do is call
You know how I feel about ya, if I can do anything at all
Let me help, if your child needs a daddy, I can help
It would sure do me good to do you good
Let me help
When I go to sleep at night you’re always a part of my dream
Holding me tight and telling me everything I wanna hear
Don’t forget me baby, all you gotta do is call
You know how I feel about you, if I can do anything at all
Let me help, if your child needs a daddy, I can help
I fell off my Cloud on 12th October, 2021. Well, to tell the truth I had gone to look at the village where my Cloud is currently stationed. I had found a log, not the one you write in, but the burnable kind.
Whilst wheeling it back, I fell off my wheels and hurt my leg, my right knee. I had stopped more or less, so I didn’t do much damage. This is a photo of the damage.
I managed to clean it up under a convenient shower from the Bath cloud, and with the help of Olive Oil, a well-known angel, soothed my wound, really a graze.
Mind you, the blood does look excessive for a graze but then that is often the case. Sometimes on the internet you see photographs with text that says how awful someone was beaten up etc.
However, journalists can make mountains out of molehills and things can be deceiving, so one must judge carefully before leaping to conclusions.
As regards the massacre at Wounded Knee, that was a different kettle of fish.
In can be known as the Battle of Wounded Knee. It is a very sorry affair, and an appalling indictment of the US government policies. Corruption in government is nothing new.
I decided I must write about it to try and help make a stand for those I would have once called Red Indians. In reality they should be well-read Indians as they can generally read the signs well, the signs of the times and seasons, as any sensible person can.
However, as I find that battles have already been well described online and in the history books, I am better off doing my take on the proceedings.
The names of the combatants can be rather amusing to parody. I mean no disrespect, only as I have said before, the pointlessness of it all makes you weep. It is better to poke some fun at it to wake people up to the stupidity of it all. And to do something about it, to put an end to evil once and for all.
And as the world needs healing and laughter is the best medicine, who else do you call upon but Baldmichael, the Laughter Medicine Man?!!
Mind you in this case, I really do wonder about it, as some of the things that happened do seem remarkable in the perhaps macabre humour that I see arise. So here goes. I use the following link as a basis, extracting text in italics from the link.
the U.S. government had continued to seize Lakota lands.
I will no doubt look at the indigenous tribes of North America in detail in due course, but for the time being I note this. It is very cold in winter when you need ‘La Kota’ or ‘The coat’ to keep warm.
This coat is apparently a large coat put around some poles. This structure is called a tipi or ‘tee pee’. So named after having had a cup of tea you would need a pee, as tea is a diuretic so they say.
The Lakota people are a member of the large western branch of Sioux people. Sioux is pronounced soo. Thus we have such songs as ‘A boy named Sioux’ who fell out with his father over his name.
And the English post punk or new wave band, Siouxsie and the Banshees. A new wave band was one of the variants of music at the time. Rather similar to Covid 19 variants, only much more fun to dance to. And unlike Covid 19, not a load of a crap.
Don’t forget variants come in waves like music. I wrote about the second wave of Covid 19 in the UK in the link at the end of the page.
The Lakota tribe have an hourglass type symbol. Apparently this has something to do with the heavens touching the earth. Or vice versa. See here for further explanation.
Personally, I think this is just the men folk’s symbol for the ideal woman who has the hourglass figure. If you think about it, it makes sense. ‘hourglass’ sounds like ‘our g-lass’. A lass is a girl in Scotland etc., g is obviously short for glamorous. All quite logical.
The once-large bison herds, a staple of the Great Plains indigenous peoples, had been hunted to near-extinction.
The bison held the people together, which is why they were the staple of the Great Plains. Staples hold things together, like sheets of paper. Come on that’s obvious!
What might not be so obvious is that without the bison, the people would have difficulty in washing. You, I am sure, know that whilst a buffalo is similar to a bison, you can wash your hands in a bison (sic), but not in a buffalo.
You can also be sick in a bison (sic). If you are sick too often in the bison (sic) you may clog up the bison (sic) and it will no longer be of any use. You will have been sick too often.
Hunting the bison to extinction is a very bad idea, a very sick idea, and when you are sick in a bison (sic) this causes an awful stink to come out, hence ex- (meaning ‘out of’) and -stinked (sic).
Treaty promises to protect reservation lands from encroachment by settlers and gold miners were not implemented as agreed.
Nothing new there then. Successive US governments have never seemed to do what they said they would. Like the current one under Joe Biden. Or is it Kamala Harris, I forget which. Or is it George Soros?
George is Germanic and (non-observant) Jewish. Kamala Harris is a laughing Hyena. Joe Biden is brain dead. You chose.
Please note the quote says ‘…were not implemented as agreed’, It should be ‘as a greed’ as greed was and is the root of all kinds of evil.
To continue, a
prophet named Wovoka founder of the Ghost Dance religion. He had a vision that the Christian Messiah, Jesus Christ, had returned to Earth in the form of a Native American.
Wovoka means ‘cutter’ or wood cutter’. This makes sense of an anagram of Wovoka’ which is ‘oak vow’. Possibly also ‘A K.O. vow’ the reverse of Wovoka. This would mean ‘a knock out vow’. He vowed to knock out some wood.
Pushing it a bit I know, but as most of us struggle to push trees over, perhaps he used an axe instead.
Regarding his vision, whilst the date of return of Jesus Christ was too early, it is possible that Jesus will return as a Red Indian.
Or more likely, I consider, as a well-read Indian. After all, He did know a lot, being the Word of God and well versed in the scriptures.
As regards the Ghost Dance you can look this up. However, I think I can relate to this this as I love to dance and fling myself around on the dance floor.
U.S. settlers were alarmed by the sight of the many Great Basin and Plains tribes performing the Ghost Dance, worried that it might be a prelude to armed attack.
I really don’t think the sight of me flinging myself around the dance floor would make you think I was about to attack you, but if a lot of young men like me (ehem) were to do it, perhaps I can understand people’s concern.
This is an artist’s impression of the ghost dance. When I dance I do not wave a knife in the air. I might accidently stick it into someone. I am not that stupid.
On December 15, 1890, 40 Native American policemen arrived at Sitting Bull’s house to arrest him. When Sitting Bull refused to comply, the police used force on him. The Lakota in the village were enraged. Catch-the-Bear, a Lakota, shouldered his rifle and shot Lt. Bullhead, who reacted by firing his revolver into the chest of Sitting Bull. Another police officer, Red Tomahawk, shot Sitting Bull in the head, and he dropped to the ground. He died between 12 and 1 p.m. After Sitting Bull’s death, 200 members of his Hunkpapa band, fearful of reprisals, fled Standing Rock to join Chief Spotted Elk (later known as “Big Foot”) and his Miniconjou band at the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation.
I had better interpret this for you this for you. The authorities decided that as Sitting Bull was a ‘Clear and present danger’ to their pockets and greed, they would send a ‘few’ policemen to arrest him.
He was about 59 years old I gather, so obviously likely to floor a mere half dozen police like Bruce Lee might have done with his martial arts. So send 40 armed police just to make sure.
Today this is the equivalent of sending 4 armed police persons (I am being pc about the P.C’s) to arrest an elderly man who has been caught anti-social distancing at the super market. This is a useful distraction for the shop lifters who can then get away.
Anyway, Sitting Bull was at home. Whether he was sitting or standing at the time is not clear, but presumably he got up to open the door. So he was then standing Sitting Bull.
Catch-the-Bear, using his right to bear arms (it is winter, so presumably his arms were not bare), shot the bull in the head.
The bull enraged at this, rather than shoot the bear, shot the chest of Sitting Bull. Presumably this was to break the lock on the chest, but why I really don’t know at the moment.
Then the red tomato hawk shot Sitting Bull in the head. It is not clear if Sitting Bull was still standing. But at least red tomato hawk did not shoot the bull in the head, as this would have enraged it even more, causing endless confusion and chaos.
By the way, I hope you are still following me?
Anyway, shooting the Sitting Bull in the head was fatal for the Bull. And makes the red tomato hawk culpa-bull for the murder of the Sitting Bull in my books.
As the Sitting Bull was a member of the renowned music band the ‘Hunkapapas’, the late 1890’s version of the ‘Mamas and the Papas’, this caused the band to disperse and flee.
They left Standing Rock (it is believed the band was a rock band) – I assume they left Standing Rock still standing – and all the band were running and not standing; otherwise they would not be fleeing would they? Honestly, I don’t know the things you have to explain to people.
Like double check the statistics of deaths by, with or from Covid 19.
Anyway, this would make them a ‘Band on the Run’. Someone wrote a song about that a bit later.
Where was I? Oh yes, so they fled to join Chief Spotted Elk, who was waving his spotted hunkachief so that the hunkapapas would spot him and come his way.
The Elk was related to the Elkie Brooks, a series of streams in the area. The music of the streams as they gurgled over the stones (these were rolling stones of course) was considered very fine.
The Elk was happy to welcome the Hunkapapas to enlarge his music band, the Miniconnedyou. This was a small band as you might expect from the name.
Rather like Mini Ha Ha who was a rather small lady who laughed a lot, like my wife.
The Miniconnedyou band had a reservation to play at Cheyenne River, a well-known ‘dive’ or night club as we say nowadays. This was a hot spot to play at as the name implies; think Cheyenne (sic) pepper etc.
And of course it served Indian food, hence the Indian Reservation.
Spotted Elk and his band, along with 38 Hunkpapa, left the Cheyenne River Reservation on December 23 to journey to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to seek shelter with Red Cloud.
They all spent a week in the night club which is pretty impressive. Only 38 Hunkapapas left with The Elk, so presumably the 162 others of the band were too drunk or liked it so much they stayed on.
Or perhaps they formed a new band. Look, I don’t know everything!
But I do note that The Elk and the others sought shelter by, with or from the Red Cloud. But not on it I guess. They didn’t have the internet in ‘them thar hills’ or in the wonderful film of the same name with Laurel and Hardy.
Former Pine Ridge Indian agent Valentine T. McGillycuddy was asked his opinion of the “hostilities” surrounding the Ghost Dance movement, by General Leonard Wright Colby, commander of the Nebraska National Guard (portion of letter dated January 15, 1891):
As regards Valentine T. McGillycuddy, this reminds me of MacGillycuddy’s Reeks. These are not McGillycuddy’s smelly socks, but ‘reeks ‘ or ‘rocks’, mountains in southwest Ireland.
“As for the ‘Ghost Dance’ too much attention has been paid to it. It was only the symptom or surface indication of a deep-rooted, long-existing difficulty; as well treat the eruption of smallpox as the disease and ignore the constitutional disease.”
“As regards disarming the Sioux, however desirable it may appear, I consider it neither advisable, nor practicable. I fear it will result as the theoretical enforcement of prohibition in Kansas, Iowa and Dakota; you will succeed in disarming and keeping disarmed the friendly Indians because you can, and you will not succeed with the mob element because you cannot.”
“If I were again to be an Indian agent, and had my choice, I would take charge of 10,000 armed Sioux in preference to a like number of disarmed ones; and furthermore agree to handle that number, or the whole Sioux nation, without a white soldier. Respectfully, etc., V.T. McGillycuddy.”
“P.S. I neglected to state that up to date there has been neither a Sioux outbreak or war. No citizen in Nebraska or Dakota has been killed, molested or can show the scratch of a pin, and no property has been destroyed off the reservation.”
General Miles sent this telegram from Rapid City to General John Schofield in Washington, D.C., on December 19, 1890:
“The difficult Indian problem cannot be solved permanently at this end of the line. It requires the fulfillment of Congress of the treaty obligations that the Indians were entreated and coerced into signing. They signed away a valuable portion of their reservation, and it is now occupied by white people, for which they have received nothing.”
“They understood that ample provision would be made for their support; instead, their supplies have been reduced, and much of the time they have been living on half and two-thirds rations. Their crops, as well as the crops of the white people, for two years have been almost total failures.”
“The dissatisfaction is wide spread, especially among the Sioux, while the Cheyennes have been on the verge of starvation, and were forced to commit depredations to sustain life. These facts are beyond question, and the evidence is positive and sustained by thousands of witnesses.”
To be honest, I think this speaks for itself and the on-going problems in society. The abuse of those who are called indigenous people, but who really should just be called people, humans, even the children of God as we all are.
The issue of facts beyond question remind me also of the facts that the vaccines are harming and killing people as they always have. They are beyond question. Wakey wakey, world!
And do note as well ‘treat the eruption of smallpox as the disease and ignore the constitutional disease’. He knew that the issue of small pox was not to do with something so-called infectious diseases, but symptomatic of toxic poisoning due to malnutrition and ultimately reduced vitamin D etc. Like today of course.
2 Fight and ensuing massacre
John Shangreau, a scout and interpreter who was half Lakota, advised the troopers not to disarm the Indians immediately, as it would lead to violence.
This is interesting; would it have been better if they had removed the arms?
Later that evening, Colonel James W. Forsyth and the remainder of the 7th Cavalry arrived, bringing the number of troopers at Wounded Knee to 500. In contrast, there were 350 Lakota: 230 men and 120 women and children.
The Wikipedia link seems missing/no longer working. However, it is at variance with the Order of Battle at the end, which appears correct according to the link. The balance of men to women and children seems much more logical anyway, i.e. 120 men and 230 women and children.
This is an example of double checking the facts; don’t believe all that you read at first glance. Including what I write of course.
The troopers surrounded Spotted Elk’s encampment and set up four rapid-fire Hotchkiss-designed M1875 mountain guns.
So, just to make sure the Lakota didn’t cause trouble, set up your kiss of death guns. Actually hotch means fidget or jog jerkily, so in the context means where a fidgety, trigger happy mob of ‘police’ may fire at you without warning.
Sound familiar, doesn’t it?
2.1 December 29, 1890
A search of the camp confiscated 38 rifles, and more rifles were taken as the soldiers searched the Indians. None of the old men were found to be armed.
For confiscated read ‘pinched’. Once you have taken their guns, you can take the other things. Like lives.
Rather similar to the pinching of brains in the so-called Covid 19 panic. Then you can take people’s money, property etc. And lives of course. That is health, wealth and liphs, sorry lives.
It should be noted the 2nd amendment to the constitution is the right to bare arms to which I have made allusion before, but again as it was winter the Lakota had their coats on of course.
A medicine man named Yellow Bird allegedly harangued the young men
This reminds you of doctors at the moment haranguing you to get the shot, or vaccine. Yellow is because they themselves are yellow or cowards if they do not get shot themselves. Or yellow because they yell at you, and ‘- ow’ because it hurts to be shouted at.
I would like to see doctors shot with the correct vaccine, not saline. And us watching closely to make sure, not a faked video clip.
Yellow Bird began to perform the Ghost Dance, telling the Lakota the falsehood that their “ghost shirts” were “bulletproof”.
This is rather like the females on videos nowadays saying that people need not be afraid of the ‘shots’ of vaccines as they will not harm you. No they won’t, not as long as you don’t stick them in your bare arms, bare bums or any other part of your anatomy.
Just say ‘No thank you. As you think they work you are very welcome to have mine.’
Black Coyote refused to give up his rifle; he spoke no English and was deaf, and had not understood the order.
The account of Turning Hawk, an American Indian who was present at the massacre and was sympathetic to the U.S. government, made no mention of Black Coyote’s supposed deafness, instead calling him “a crazy man, a young man of very bad influence, and in fact a nobody.”
Turning Hawk sounds like one of the hawks we hear about in US governments, you know, shoot first and ask questions later. Then shoot the ones you have interrogated to remove the witnesses.
Then receive a nice fat cheque (okay ‘check’ for y’all in the states, whateva’) from the arms manufacturers etc.
Sounds rather similar to what goes on today with Covid 19, pointless masks and vaccines etc. Slag off the innocent, brand them (let’s go Brandon!) as crazy anti-vaxxers, anti-maskers, anti-stupidity – no, they aren’t that stupid yet, scrub the last one.
When I say ‘they’ I mean the vaxxers, maskers etc aren’t stupid enough yet to say we are anti-stupidity as that would be really stupid. If they have enough vaccines they might possibly end up that stupid of course.
Those of us sensible people who won’t wear masks where it is pointless, won’t have vaccines because they are pointless if not harmful or deadly, are also anti- or against being stupid, we are not stupid.
Which is why we will not wear blah, blah, blah.
By the way, I hope I’m not boring you? If so why are you still reading? Right, what’s next? Ah yes…
It is believed that many of the soldiers were victims of friendly fire from their own Hotchkiss guns.
Yes, well done, set up rapid fire guns which can cause indiscriminate damage in confined spaces, very well done I don’t think. What morons the officers were.
The officers had lost all control of their men. Some of the soldiers fanned out and finished off the wounded. Others leaped onto their horses and pursued the Natives (men, women, and children), in some cases for miles across the prairies.
an estimate of 300 of the original 350 having been killed or wounded
Bloody hell, what incredible stupidity, mass murder as a result of corruption and greed in the powers that be, the unseen authorities, no doubt sitting in Washington on their bottoms.
The ones who wanted the Red Indians real estate. These authorities were souls or ‘R’ souls as in ‘R’ for Real Estate. Complete ‘R’souls which is why they were sitting on their bottoms.
3 Eyewitness accounts
I note two of these
General Nelson A. Miles who visited the scene of carnage, following a three-day blizzard, estimated that around 300 snow shrouded forms were strewn over the countryside. He also discovered to his horror that helpless children and women with babies in their arms had been chased as far as two miles from the original scene of encounter and cut down without mercy by the troopers. … Judging by the slaughter on the battlefield it was suggested that the soldiers simply went berserk. For who could explain such a merciless disregard for life? … As I see it the battle was more or less a matter of spontaneous combustion, sparked by mutual distrust …
— Hugh McGinnis, First Battalion, Co. K, 7th Cavalry
Given the evidence this is obviously correct. There was no earthly reason for the massacre that took place. If you will use native troops who had a grudge against the Lakota then what do you expect?
…The whole trouble originated through interested whites, who had gone about most industriously and misrepresented the army and its movements upon all the agencies. The Indians, were in consequence alarmed and suspicious. They had been led to believe that the true aim of the military was their extermination. The troops acted with the greatest kindness and prudence. In the Wounded Knee fight the Indians fired first. The troops fired only when compelled to. I was between both, saw all, and know from an absolute knowledge of the whole affair whereof I say.
The Reverend Father Francis M.J. Craft, Catholic missionary
He doesn’t seem a very good character. If he will call himself Reverend Father when Jesus says in effect do not let yourself be called by a title, and anyway there is only one Father in heaven, what do you expect?
Still he was correct in saying the issue was ‘interested whites’, strictly pale faces as there is no such thing as black and white, we are in any event all one human race, all brothers as the Chief, Joseph said.
“All men were made by the Great Spirit Chief. They are all brothers.”
If the guns of the Lakota were taken away apart from some hidden guns as is recorded, then the troops must have been at fault for the massacre.
L. Frank Baum, later the author of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, wrote in the Aberdeen Saturday Pioneer on January 3, 1891:
The Pioneer has before declared that our only safety depends upon the total extermination of the Indians. Having wronged them for centuries, we had better, in order to protect our civilization, follow it up by one more wrong and wipe these untamed and untamable creatures from the face of the earth. In this lies future safety for our settlers and the soldiers who are under incompetent commands. Otherwise, we may expect future years to be as full of trouble with the redskins as those have been in the past.
As regards anagrams of Tim Giago’s name I note the following
I it Magog – this reminds me of Gog and Magog!
His Wikipedia entry says
As a young reporter, he was sometimes told that he could not cover events at the Pine Ridge Reservation because he could not be “objective”, an opinion which he questioned.
I think the problem here is that L. Frank Baum was being sarcastic, but in this case perhaps it backfired. I don’t believe L. Frank Baum meant that the Lokota should be exterminated, but you do have to be very careful what you say, as people will misconstrue things.
Such as Tim Giago who hasn’t seen the sarcasm in Mr Baum’s writing.
4.1 Stranded 9th Cavalry
The wagon train protected itself by circling the wagons.
I assume they drew circles on the wagons so the Indians could shoot at the targets rather than the soldiers.
Corporal William Wilson volunteered to take a message to the agency at Pine Ridge to get help after the Indian scouts refused to go.
I note he is’ Will I am ‘ot hello Wilson’. He was willing to go, with the Indians ‘ot on his trail to say hello to the agency and warn them of what was going on. He was dark skinned.
In the sub link on him it says ‘Wilson was the only black soldier to earn a Medal of Honor after desertion. Wilson was also last black soldier to earn the Medal of Honor for heroism on American soil.’
To which I say ‘WOW!’, the initials of his name. Perhaps Wilson is a good name. It seems to be derived from Williamson.
5 Medals of Honor
Why on earth anybody saw fit to honour troops at a massacre of many old men, woman and children is anybody’s guess. I guess at the usual corruption and greed. Like trying to persuade people to take pointless or dangerous/deadly vaccines for the same reasons.
Sergeant William Austin, cavalry, directed fire at Indians in ravine at Wounded Knee;
The Indians were women and children. WTF. Meaning William The Foolish. Or something like that.
Sergeant Bernhard Jetter, cavalry, distinguished bravery at Wounded Knee for “killing an Indian who was in the act of killing a wounded man of B Troop.”
Why, pray, is this distinguished bravery??
Sergeant George Loyd, cavalry, bravery, especially after having been severely wounded through the lung at Wounded Knee
As opposed to having been severely wounded in the knee at Wounded Lung. It is not clear what he did, but I assume he was wounded for a lung (sic) time.
I also assume he kneeded (sic) treatment after having been wounded at Wounded Knee.
Sergeant Albert McMillain, cavalry, while engaged with Indians concealed in a ravine, he assisted the men on the skirmish line, directed their fire, encouraged them by example, and used every effort to dislodge the enemy at Wounded Knee;
Yeah, right. I can imagine it. ‘Come out women and children you dangerous unarmed fearful wimps!’ ‘Stop crying or I’ll shoot you. What the heck, I’ll shoot you anyway’. ‘Come on lads, there’s one cowering over there, kill it before its tears drown you.’
You barstard Sergeant Albert McMillain. Revenge is mine says the Lord, I will repay.
6.1 Commemorations of Native American deaths
“This monument is erected by surviving relatives and other Ogalala and Cheyenne River Sioux Indians in memory of the Chief Big Foot massacre December 29, 1890. Col. Forsyth in command of US troops. Big Foot was a great chief of the Sioux Indians. He often said, ‘I will stand in peace till my last day comes.’ He did many good and brave deeds for the white man and the red man. Many innocent women and children who knew no wrong died here.”
The foot comes down from heaven to crush Monty Python.
It is said to be Cupid’s foot, Cupid the God of love, crushes the mont-y-python, the hill of python, the snake.
The python, the snake, the serpent Satan.
6.2 Seventh Cavalry Regiment
A monument was raised to the regiment. It should refer to its stupidity, not bravery of the men who killed largely unarmed men plus women and children. But what does it say if anything? I find no references at the moment.
7 Popular culture
7.1 Massacre or battle
Why is this a question? Massacre obviously. Just like vaccines massacring people today.
7.2 Bury my heart at Wounded Knee
In his 1931 poem “American Names”, Stephen Vincent Benet coined the phrase “Bury my heart at Wounded Knee”.
I thought I might rewrite the last line after researching the massacre. Perhaps as I was brought up in Sussex, and currently stationed here, the reference to Winchelsea is appropriate
I shall not rest quiet in Montparnasse.
I shall not lie easy at Winchelsea.
You may bury my body in Sussex grass,
You may bury my tongue at Champmedy.
I shall not be there. I shall rise and pass.
See, Baldmichael is kickin’ arse!!
7.3 In other music
I note this
In 1973, the American rock band Redbone, formed by Native Americans Patrick and Lolly Vasquez, released the song “We Were All Wounded at Wounded Knee”. The song ends with the subtly altered sentence “We were all wounded by Wounded Knee.” The song reached the number-one chart position across Europe. In the U.S., the song was initially withheld from release and then banned by several radio stations.
The song banned in US on certain radio stations for telling the truth. Just like today with the truth about vaccines; they wound us all, and mainstream media wants to suppress the truth. Plus ça change.
Order of battle
This should be called Order of massacre for reason in heading 7.1 earlier.
Essentially this was 500 armed men plus 4 rapid fire light artillery
120 men, largely unarmed after being disarmed, 230 presumably unarmed women and children.
What other conclusion could anyone possibly come to except that this was an unjustified massacre due to greed and perhaps incompetence.
I found all this out because I was wounded on my knee and looked up wounded knee. All things work together for good for those who love God, presumably working together for good for God as well.
You may remember the reference to the ghost dance. Well, the poor Lakotans didn’t stand a ghost of a chance against the 500 soldiers of the 7th cavalry.
I will leave you with the words again of the Lakota chief Joseph.
“All men were made by the Great Spirit Chief. They are all brothers.”
Jesus Christ said this too.
All mankind, men and women, in the beginning, were made by the Great Spirit Chief.
“And God made man is His own image; male and female He created them.”
He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.”
So in essence we have a ‘fat youth’, or perhaps a bouncing baby boy!
But ‘Fat’ is part of father. Jesus is the heavenly Father’s Son, His beautiful Boy!!
In the manger you will find hay for the cattle to eat. This sound similar to hey which is the sound of the fifth letter of the Hebrew alphabet. See my post for some additional explanation of the names of God, especially YHWH, pronounced Yahweh.
Hay – so the hey of YAHWEH. The H of YAHWEH represents the Son, the ‘The’ of God. Jesus is the ‘hey’, hey or hay to be eaten. He is the food of life, the Bread of Life!!!
To sum up
From the manger we have:
Jesus was laid in a manger to be eaten as the Bread of Life
Jesus is the hay of God to be eaten to sustain the children of God
Jesus is the german, the offshoot
Jesus is the germ-an, the promised seed to crush Satan’s head
Jesus is the engram, the language of God, the word of God
Jesus is the RAM, the access to the memory of God
Jesus is the ram, the male lamb of God
Jesus is, perhaps above all, the heavenly Father’s beautiful bouncing Boy!
I could write so much more but I didn’t sleep as well as I might have done last night as I struggle with my health energy. Anyway, I think that is plenty to be going on with.
Although I was going to say that as it seems german is an intricate dance, Jesus is the Lord of the Dance! Are you excited enough to dance yet?
But this is the heavenly Father’s gift to you this Christmas, which you can have every day of the year of course.
My heart was bursting as I wrote these things, and tears ran down my face. Let us finish with the words of the carol ‘Away in a manger’.
‘All the dear children’ include all the children of God of any age, and are for you whom I would like to call my darlings (if you don’t mind).
Why? Why not, that’s what I say. After all, this is my blog. Whose press then?
Well, I would say stop pressing people to get a vaccine, or as it is currently called, a booster. I don’t of course mean your good selves, dear readers, but the governments or indeed any of their lackeys.
Or the NHS or people who believe that because they are vaccinated you should be too. This is apparently due to them thinking (I use the term loosely) that if we all get vaccinated we shall achieve turd immunity.
Mmm? You think I have misspelled the word? You mean vaccinated? No? Well immunity then? No? Mmm, let’s see, let me think….. ah! I have it, you mean turd don’t you? Well, done Baldy, got there in the end.
Well, the thing is that if we all get vaccinated, people, many people sadly believe that this will enable us to all get on with our lives and not have to live with all the, to put it bluntly, bullshit, they have had to put up with over the last 20 months or so.
But don’t forget that an awful lot of people have had what, again to be blunt, are shitty lives. Whether in the shitty (sic) or the rural areas! It is too easy to forget there are shanty towns which are shitty, places where shit of all sorts gets dumped where it shouldn’t.
And now there is pressure to make their lives even worse with poisonous vaccines (this has been done before but not at the current scale). Assuming of course they are not merely saline. Who knows, people gladly will sell you nothing for something.
Anyway, vaccines do do not do anything for any kind of immunity as I have said elsewhere, and certainly not against turds. They are there all over the place, to be found online as people write lots of crap, a.k.a. rubbish, if you prefer, about Covid and a whole host of other things.
By the way did anyone spot my deliberate mistake there? Do do? Quite right. ‘Why did you do do that?’ I hear you cry. Well, ‘do do’ can be as in dog do, dog shit.
But really, who wants to think about such matters at Christmas, let alone any other time of the year. Except there are lots of people who do have to deal with such things at any time of the year, so do try and remember them and help where you can.
In the mean time I have been reading some headlines in a newspaper, The Daily Telegraph, or Torygraph as it has been called. I thought I would do a quick resume/observations of ones that caught my eye. From 21st December, 2021.
This website gives some pointers, and quotes in italics from this unless otherwise stated.
There is a young man and a young woman having an argument. They are arguing about who does the vax or vacs. This who is to do the cleaning before Christmas with the vacuum cleaner, I imagine.
On the other hand perhaps it is about the vaccine. I will have it, I won’t have it. ‘We’ll all die!’ ‘No we won’t, it’s the ‘flu!’.
‘You will kill me!’ ‘No I won’t, but if you have vaccine it might’.
‘You will infect me!’ ‘No, if the vaccine is going to protect you, then you will be okay.’
‘But it doesn’t fully protect me!’ ‘So why did you have it then?’
‘Because the government told me too!’ ‘No the government/NHS etc. offered it to you, advertised it incessantly, but it did not tell you too.’
‘My boss said I will lose my job if I don’t!’ ‘Go tell your boss to sod off (politely)’
‘But if I lose my job, we won’t be able to pay the mortgage!’ ‘If you are ill or maimed by the vaccine, you may not be able to work again. If you are dead you definitely won’t be able to work again. And while I am at it, why the hell did we borrow so much money to buy this pokey flat/apartment??’
Anyway, that sort of conversation may be ensuing. Telling your boss politely to sod off could be in the form of ‘Please sod off’ as this uses the polite word ‘please’.
It is however not quite what I meant, even though some of us may wish to use this or stronger language.
A carefully written letter to your employer may be of great use as in ‘Are you willing to accept all liability if I am ill within the next, say, 10 years or forever, whichever is the longer, as a consequence of taking the vaccine you say is necessary to remain employed at your firm/NHS etc. etc.’
On the assumption your employer will not sign it then you can then say ‘Well then, I won’t have the vaccine.’ You should be able to explain why it is dangerous, and that you don’t wish to play Russian roulette with your body.
If they should possibly sign it then you will to review your options. People advise make sure your employer fires you and then you may be able to sue for unfair dismissal. But don’t leave merely because of undue pressure, unless you are happy to do so.
It is your judgement, but do seek advice as best you can and someone faithful to support you.
Confusion at Christmas
BORIS JOHNSON was last night urged to bring clarity to Christmas as plans were thrown into limbo amid uncertainty over new restrictions.
Well, Christmas is when many celebrate Jesus of Nazareth’s birth at Bethlehem. Many people forget this is what we used to do more whole heartedly. Perhaps Boris ‘Karloff’ Johnson might mention this.
He might also mention that the government has issued GUIDANCE. It says so on the website gov.uk under Coronavirus (COVID-19).
You need to show your NHS COVID Pass at nightclubs, some venues and large events to show you’re fully vaccinated, have had a negative test result in the last 48 hours, or you have an exemption.
‘you have an exemption.’ Means you have a brain and don’t need to follow government advice, thank you all the same. If you don’t have a brain, then follow the advice if you can. Be ill or dead, but don’t expect me to bury or look after you as I have my hands full looking after the living.
By the way, the new restrictions are more or less the old restrictions rehashed to make the more confusing in a clear manner. Which probably doesn’t help.
So just ignore the GUIDANCE and have the best Christmas you can, helping friend and families (and enemies if you can).
I haven’t double checked but I strongly suspect that a negative test result might include a C- etc on a test paper, the cricket test was against your favorite side or indeed any other sporting test.
Or that you have had a pregnancy test. Current prices may be around £5.00 if you actually want one. If you are a man this should (I hope!) be negative. Otherwise you should be seriously worried.
This will be more problematic than Covid 19, a.k.a. the ‘flu.
Trans people should be able to declare gender
This is blindingly obvious. If they are male, they can say they are male. If they are female they can say they are female.
If they are not sure which they are, then tell them to have a look and check their bodies for the tell-tale signs. The internet will help or another male or female, a.k.a as a sensible person.
If they are still unsure then they are confused. But don’t ask the government as it doesn’t know what it is either at the moment.
N.B. Anybody who is Trains gender is no doubt feeling chuffed with themselves (That’s my Christmas joke).
Frequent attenders ‘fuel increased pressure of GP’s’
This is not news. This has been the case for a long time. Too many people don’t know how to look after themselves properly.
In any event, GP’s in general only look at the internet nowadays it seems when you are there at the surgery. They will by and large only treat the symptoms, not the cause. And treat the symptoms with pointless poisonous neuro-toxic drugs.
Any old fuel (sic) should see this, like me and I did. Too many GP’s are fuel-ish (sic). It’s sickening.
Queen cancels Christmas at Sandringham
This is sad, as she will now only have the small space at Windsor Castle to run around in, together with other members of her extended family; we don’t know who.
They will presumably have Windsor Great Park to run around in. I believe this is not quite 5,000 acres, so not very large for a queen and her family, however many turn up.
Of course they will have to share at least some of it with the smelly general public if the smelly general public are not afraid of venturing out given the ‘ghastly plague’.
The ‘ghastly plague’ maybe other members of the royal family, but again we don’t know how many will turn up.
Kahn cancels New Year’s Eve Trafalgar Square Event
This is presumably due to the ‘Wrath of Kahn’, a Star Trek film. Anyway, it seems Kahn, the mayor of London is saying you can’t.
Personally, I would tell him to go and jump in the Thames. Or throw him in, as I understand this is now government guidance for dealing with Covid 19, so it is alleged. I think you kahn, others may say you kahn’t. But I may be wrong, so do double check.
However, I daresay Nelson on top of his column may be happier as he won’t get woken up this year by the revellers. On the other hand, perhaps the revellers scare away the pigeons, and they won’t shit on Nelson for a bit.
There is a picture of a nurse holding something like a syringe in her right hand. I assume it is a nurse, but it could be an actor. She is wearing a mask for some reason. Perhaps the photographer might be able to give her Covid 19 or vice versa.
Or perhaps she is an actor after all, and doesn’t want to be recognised in case she gives the game away. Yes, I’ll go with that.
By the way, I think the plastic bit on top of the syringe is meant to come off and there is a needle underneath. You don’t need to worry that she might inject you with the plastic.
You should however be concerned that she might inject you with a poisonous vaccine. You just can’t tell so best to be safe, not sorry, and avoid them altogether. Unless you like Russian roulette.
High streets lose shoppers to ‘Covid-friendly’ retail parks
This is odd as you would have thought there will be lots of Covid around in retail parks if they are friendly to it. So go to High Streets instead where presumably they are not friendly to Covid. Anyway, small businesses need your help.
And I thought Covid 19 was number 1 enemy at the moment. All very odd.
I gather that Chichester Retail Park in West Sussex is very busy so lots of people crowding into the shops there presumably. I can’t see from my Cloud, its rather misty today.
So I reckon lots of social distancing going on if people are rather near to each other which seems likely. The crowds may ‘catch Covid’. There will another wave of Covid after Christmas as a result. This will be due to the vaccines among other things. And eating and drinking too much etc. etc.
But the blame will be put on the ‘ghastly plague’. People are mad, quite mad.
Boris emerges from ominous meeting to say the party’s not over…yet
Ominous has to do with Omicron I believe. Anyway, apparently the party’s not over it seems. That’s nice. I hope Boris and chums are having a good time at the party. I like a good party, especially if there is dancing. Any chance of an invite Boris?
Mind you, on second thoughts they might all threaten to vaccinate me. I really don’t want to be associated with all those needles, a.k.a. a load of pricks.
Moderna booster gives 50 pc more protection than Pfizer, says study.
Well, I make that 50% of 0 which is…don’t rush me…ah yes, 0. Clever Baldy. So whichever one you have, it doesn’t matter. Unless one is more dangerous than the other, in which case it does. But why take the risk? Don’t have either unless your brain is missing.
However, the headline might have meant 50 PC’s, Police Constables. I thought police constables were meant to protect the public; why do they need boosters? Unless boosters is another word for pay rises funded by big pharma. As opposed to the taxpayer footing the bill for the Bill.
On the same page is a photo of God with us Mac Ron, the president of Vichy or fishy France at the moment. There is a cuirassier guard to the right of him. It looks like a female, but you cannot be sure. ‘She’ has a slight smile, rather like the Mona Lisa.
Perhaps it is the Mona Lisa come to life. Perhaps the guard has just farted, and that’s why Mac Ron is seen to be putting on a mask before he is overwhelmed by the smell.
On the other hand, perhaps she is thinking ‘I wonder if anyone will notice if I cut off the head of the beast with my sword’.
Giant Millipedes may have roamed the North
Apparently a fossil was found on the beach at Howick in Northumberland. It is supposed to have been ‘…as long as a car’.
I think this is one of the April Fool’s that is written about each day now.
When the giant millipede lived, 326 million years ago, the north-east of England had a much more tropical climate than today.
This specimen was found in what researchers believe was an old river channel. It may well not actually be the fossil of a dead creature, but an exoskeleton that was shed as the massive millipede grew.
“Finding these giant millipede fossils is rare, because once they died, their bodies tend to disarticulate, so it’s likely that the fossil is a moulted carapace that the animal shed as it grew,” said Mr Davies. “We have not yet found a fossilised head, so it’s difficult to know everything about them.”
One thing that can be said with certainty is, that in common with almost all millipedes, it did not have 1,000 legs – the researchers believe it had at least 32, but it may have been up to 64.
This fossil is just the third Arthropleura to be discovered, and is far older and larger than the two previous specimens which were both found in Germany.
So it was 360 million years old eh? Are you sure? Why are you so sure?
You believe where it was found ‘…was an old river channel’ do you? You only believe, you are not sure?
It may not be the fossil of the creature, but an exoskeleton. Really, well I never! But you’re not sure though, are you.
I see finding these fossils is rare. In fact this is only the third. I make that extremely rare, not just rare. The other two were found in Germany. Germany, the home of current germ theory. Mmm, German germ theory was, and is, a load of bollux too.
You haven’t yet found a fossilised head. And it’s difficult to know everything about them. So it might not be a fossil of the creature or even a millipede.
But it didn’t have a 1,000 legs. And probably, probably mind, 32 or maybe 64. As the Beatles might have sung ‘Will you still love it if it has 64?’
I could go on and on. But it is all bollux. It is something, but beyond that you can’t really be sure. Yet. If ever.
So another April Fool’s then, definitely. Some people will believe anything. Like thinking the vaccines are worth having etc. etc. Next please!
Brexiteers concerned over Truss workload
So am I. She is being ‘trussed’ up of course. Next!
Prison inspectors say inmates should get keys to their cells
Excellent idea! Give them the front door key as well, and say they can go out all day as long as they are back by 11p.m. or else they will be on the naughty step and get their bottoms spanked by matron. Okay, some of them will enjoy that, but it’s the thought that counts. Next!
Government ministers say pensioners should be locked up in their homes
This is the current guidance, and due to the fact that prisoners may get the keys – see above.
Personally I think this is rubbish, and another April fool. In fact I can’t see it in the newspaper at all, so I think someone just made it up. Baldmichael’s on the naughty step, tut tut.
Like the one about Covid 19, a.k.a. the ‘flu and we are all going to die by, with or from it. Someday. Whateva’. Next!
Gambling by pensioners surged during lockdown.
I believe they were betting on whether Boris was going to lock them down again at Christmas to spoil their fun. Or whether it was worth the risk to go outside when the moronic version of the virus is raging.
Or which of their friends was going to go down with dementia, die or be debilitated or even defibrillated as result of having the poisonous vaccines. Next!
Murder suspect held after lightning strike
I thought at first that they were trying to blame an innocent man for a murder clearly caused by lighting. Silly me.
It was the yacht. ‘Oh lord, please bring justice’ cried out the murder victims family. ‘Right oh’ said the Lord. BAM! ‘Bother’ said the Lord (I think that’s what He said). ‘Missed, and only hit his yacht!’
Many of you are no doubt wondering why the Lord has not hit a lot of people this year with His lightening. I asked Him. He says that it takes a while to charge up the generators, and although He has a lot of wonderful angels on the job, they can’t do everything at once.
Miracles the angels can do straightaway. The impossible takes a little longer. Be patient a little longer please.
And don’t forget to do your own bit of loving while you can in the meanwhile. Next!
Rebel democrat tells Biden he will not be beaten up
That’s Joe Biden will not be beaten up, not the rebel democrat. No, apparently Joe Biden is going to be put in a peach or something like that, then hung (out to dry), drawn (on by anybody who wants to) and quartered (in a home for the mentally bewildered).
This will probably be the same as the one in which Jack Nicholson starred in, ‘One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest’. Jack’s character got smothered with a pillow by Will Sampson who played “Chief” Bromden. Jack’s character had had a lobotomy.
So as Joe Biden has no brain either, perhaps Jack might like to have a go as “Chief” Bromden as Will Sampson is dead. Next!
A conspiracy of silence has left us trapped in permanent Covid fear.
This makes reference to the headline and article.
Well, some of us have not been silent. We have been shouting from the roof tops – well, okay, in my case from my Cloud – ‘Oi, read the GUIDANCE. You don’t have to be this stupid. It’s GUIDANCE. This means you don’t have to do it. Nanny state is not there to tell you what to do all the time.
Look, if you don’t wake up soon, it will be telling you how to wipe your bottoms next.’

Stop this perpetual spiral of restrictions
This means ignore the restrictions and get on with your lives, loving people, including yourself, as best you can.
Even with highly effective vaccines, the number of post-vaccination cases is expected to rise as virus transmission goes up and as more people are vaccinated.
Patients are counted as vaccinated if they provide proof of vaccination or if their vaccination status can be verified through North Carolina’s Covid-19 Vaccination Management System (CVMS). Patients who are not vaccinated, partially vaccinated, cannot provide proof of vaccine or whose vaccination status cannot be confirmed in CVMS are categorized as unvaccinated.
I cannot see where it says ‘vaccinated individuals are four times less likely to get COVID-19, and 15 times less likely to die of it.’ Anybody help me?
It does indicate that case will rise, among other things, due to the vaccines. This is not surprising, the vaccines poison you, so what do you expect.
Those who are counted as unvaccinated are, in fact, going to include some vaccinated or partly vaccinated. Perhaps even a lot of vaccinated.
So in other words the main article is a load of bollux. CDC people mutilating statistics are lying, conniving bastards. Or bars-turds, sons of turds, bullshitters.
People will believe anything nowadays. I hope you don’t. Next!
Get Boosted nOw
This shows a picture of a lady with the words Get Boosted nOw. The O in now is large so that people can realise that when you get injected you will go ‘Ow!’
What you will say when you fall ill from the jab is unclear. ‘Woe is me!’ probably.
What you will say when you are dead from the jab is not recorded, but then the dead don’t usually speak.
The lady’s look does not inspire me with great confidence, but then I am biased; I know the vaccine is at best pointless (apart from the needle which has a point with which to inject you. If it didn’t have a point, there would be no point, would there?).
There are a couple of whiches there. This is an indication of the witches who will be injecting you. This is a case of whichcraft of course.
To sum up
We are likely to be in for a tough winter. The next wave of deaths will be vaccine fueled as the latest variety of Stupid 20 runs riot in the nation of the UK and no doubt elsewhere. What shall I call it? Mmm…
…well, I suppose as omicron is the Covid 19 vaccine variant (caused by the vaccines), I will make mine the moronic variant.
Better still, the chronic moronic version. So let’s say this is a Christmas Special, The Two Chronies’ starting O’Micronie Barkingmad and Moronie Corbetthiswill runandrun.
For those of you who would like a Christmas Special which will help you relax why not try The Two Ronnies.
And don’t forget that the Lord God
‘He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to Him all are alive’
P.S. My next post should be ‘Away in a manger’ for Christmas Eve
I note the reference to the branding of cows (‘Come on Branding!’ seems to be a current phrase in the USA, but I may have misheard). There are those who argue that this is cruel. I think I would agree with that.
Given that vaccine is derived from the Latin ‘Vacca’ meaning cow, perhaps the cows are getting their own back! I mean, the vaccines cause pain and suffering if they do anything at all. Sometimes death occurs as a result.
As regards cows, there are some women who act like that. Annastacia Palaszczuk, the premier of Queensland, is an example. I have done a post on her.
But I am not here today to discuss Annastacia Palaszczuk. So what about heaven and hell?
Well, the only thing is that heaven and hell are in essence the same. I will explain.
Originally hell was the place of light; think of Helen a girl’s name. It means ‘sun ray’. The Hellenes relates to the Greeks, again the meaning relates to light bearing.
In Hebrew, Helel is Lucifer, the light bearer, now Satan, who fell from heaven, and became the son of the dark. Which is why the word ‘fell’ means ‘dark’ in German, for example.
Hell in German means ‘light’ or ‘fair’. The Germans must know this, but don’t seem to have pointed this out. I wonder why? Perhaps because Satan’s seat, is now in Berlin, the capital of Germany. This is in the Pergamon museum.
Hell as a place of fire and torment is misleading at best as the word is strictly Hades, the God of the or place of the dead, but is translated wrongly in versions of the bible in many cases. This includes the King James Version.
Again, Lucifer fell from hell, fell from the light to the earth, and became the fallen one. I shall write more on Lucifer elsewhere.
There is a place called Hell in Norway. I have written this elsewhere.
“There is Hell in Norway. Looks a reasonable spot on Google earth. Not too near the mountains, so not in the shade, but in the light. Very cold in winter, but pleasant in summer. Hardly a ‘lake of fire’ for the Devil and Satan to be thrown into (although there is a lake of fire).
And in the Hebrew, hell is he-el, or ‘the angel’. An angel of light. And heel is something you stand on, a secure footing as it were.
We say hello, meaning (hopefully) we are pleased to see someone, someone who might bring light or joy into our lives today.
So all those phrases about hell being bad are wrong. Who mucked it up, eh?
Still, you can see Hell freeze over if you go there in winter. Or go to Hell and back if you fancy a trip.
There may be fires in Hell, in homes and when they have bonfires. But there are no fires of Hell for damnation (although there is a lake of fire).”
Ell – this is a unit of measurement. Angels measure things in scripture.
Eh – this is used both as a question as in ‘huh?’ and in a question expecting the answer ‘Yes’ such as “It’s nice here, eh?”.
It can be even a greeting ‘Eh’ more a ‘a’ sound as in ‘hey, dude how are you?’ As opposed to ‘Hey Jude’ perhaps like the Beatles song, written by Paul McCartney.
Angels ask questions such as these.
El – which essentially means ‘angel’.
He – a male. Together with ‘el’ means therefore a male angel, Like Lucifer, now Satan.
Lucifer used to be in charge of the light, but wanted to be top dog, so he fell when kicked out of heaven. This why he has been said to be in charge of Hell where the light is (but not the place of fire and sulphur).
But he became dark, the dark Lord if you will, and lost his high position. He is a burke.
As regards Hades, this is strictly the underworld, the place of the dead. Whilst I am not intending to cover this in any detail the following is very interesting.
Ashed – a place of ashes
Shade – a dark place.
As she – as in ‘she who must be obeyed’ perhaps. This gives the heavenly Father great amusement. He says ‘Like Hell she will!’ After all, what does it say in the Lord’s Prayer, eh? ‘Thy (or your) will be done’.
And that is the heavenly Father’s will if you are not familiar with the prayer.
A shed – where a man may go to hide from his wife!
Daesh – or ISIS, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. This is very interesting.
So heaven can become ‘He aven’, or ‘He space’ or ‘He nothing’ perhaps. This in itself is fascinating because in tennis nothing, as in 0, is represented by the word ‘love’. 15-love, 30-love etc.
So heaven can become ‘He love’.
The heavens are the rivers of stars in space above us, a river of light or lights. God Himself is a river, a river of life and light. You will find this river in the New Jerusalem at the end of the book of Revelation.
You will find the Light of the World there too of course, Jesus Christ with His heavenly Father, who together with the Holy Spirit are God.
And together with all the Father’s children, the children of God, who have borne light as They, the Father and Son and the Holy Spirit do.
So as heaven can be ‘He love’, this makes sense of ‘God is love’ as John says in 1 John 4:16. So heaven is the place of love and a place of light.
This is read at this time of year particularly by many. It is part of a longer paragraph.
‘..the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death, a light has dawned.’
And don’t forget that
‘For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.’*
So there you have it. Heaven and Hell are really the same, or at least much the same.
The real contrast is Heaven and Hades, the river of life, the place of light, and the place of the dead, the shady or dark place.
The Father and Son live in Heaven. Lucifer, now Satan, dwells in the shade.
The choice is therefore yours; which one will you chose I wonder?
* It actually says gave his ‘monogene’ son. Can you see why? I will tell you if you don’t, but not here.
P.S. I said in the post, why did the Germans not point out that Hell means fair or light? Are they hiding something from us? Has it something to do with the seat of Satan in Berlin? Has it something to do with the Nazis/Marxists who both came out of Germany?
Yes. See this and other posts for further explanations or see (ask) me.
Apparently according to the Met Office this will be called Corrie. Please note the Met Office is the Meteorological Office, not the office of the Metropolitan Police who could not currently predict a slip up on a banana skin, even if it was on the pavement right in front of their collective noses.
‘Hay was proceedin’ along hin an hordely fashion when I espied someone walkin’ on the cracks in the paving stones. Oi shouted out ‘Oi’ and running towards the offender oi..arrrrrgh!…’
No, not policeman plod, but the weather forecaster which by and large does an excellent job (in my humble opinion). Unlike Boris the Spider who is confusing all of us, right, left and centre.
Deliberately of course, even he is not that stupid. Unlike a large proportion of the general public in the UK, who don’t realise that the government have issued guidance for the gullible (at gov.uk) who can’t think for themselves.
From this you might be forgiven for thinking Storm Barra has not hit, but it did, on Tuesday 7th December. Interestingly, this is the day that the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbour. Mmm, didn’t I mention something significant would happen that day?
Okay, so I said it was the USA, but it’s the thought that counts, isn’t it? Anyway, for some reason the Japanese have been thought of as yellow skinned. This link is interesting together with the comments.
Then I found it. Apparently, we can blame a German professor from the 19th century.
Johann Friedrich Blumenbach (1752–1840), one of the founders of what some call scientific racism theories, came up with the five color typology for humans: white people (the Caucasian or white race), more or less black people (the Ethiopian or black race), yellow people (the Mongolian or yellow race), cinnamon-brown or flame colored people (the American or red race) and brown people (the Malay or brown race). Blumenbach listed the “races” in a hierarchic order of physical similarities: Caucasian, followed by American, followed by Mongolian, followed by Malayan, followed by Ethiopian.
In reality I suggest you double check on poor Johann Blumenbach as his Wikipedia entry indicates he did not racially divide the human race, but proposed that because of a degenerative process, skin colours varied. More research is required but, I believe he did some great work.
I would blame the Kaiser and Hermann Knackfuss (see later).
Anyway, whatever the reason, probably because the Yellow River flows into the Yellow Sea and therefore the peoples around these areas are the Yellow people…, hang on, that is the reason, duh!
Honestly, Baldmichael, you are a bit slow sometimes!
Where was I? Oh yes, so the Japanese are the Yellow people or a branch thereof. It is therefore of note that the Met Office were warning of yellow wind!!!
There was also the threat of yellow snow. This normally occurs when people are caught short and have to ‘go’ outside and ‘Water the garden’ as it were. If it has snowed, then yellow snow is a consequence.
As regards the Japanese it seems some people thought them a ‘Yellow Peril’.
To justify European cultural hegemony, the Kaiser used the allegorical lithograph Peoples of Europe, Guard Your Most Sacred Possessions (1895), by Hermann Knackfuss, to communicate his geopolitics to other European monarchs. The lithograph depicts Germany as the leader of Europe, personified as a “prehistoric warrior-goddesses being led by the Archangel Michael against the ‘yellow peril’ from the East”, which is represented by “dark cloud of smoke [upon] which rests an eerily calm Buddha, wreathed in flame”. Politically, the Knackfuss lithograph allowed Kaiser Wilhelm II to believe he prophesied the imminent race war that would decide global hegemony in the 20th century.
All of which explains why the Japanese invaded Pearl Harbour and, as history is repeating itself 80 years later as I have been saying, why the Met Office had to issue a yellow wind warning.
Storm Barra was preceded by Storm Arwen. Arwen was the female elf who married Aragorn in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Storm Arwen hit the UK around 26-27th November. Arwen comes up as underlined with a wiggly red line in Word, which I use to type out my draft posts. Or should that be daft posts??
Anyway, if I check possible alternative spellings, the top one is Arden. For some strange reason this makes me think of someone with a similar name. Who could that be I wonder? Mmm. Oh yes, dearest Jacinda Ardern of course who is trying to bugger up run New Zealand into the ground.
Sorry about that, mistakes will happen. Including Jacinda Ardern. In any event, she was at it again on the 26th and 27th November this year.
I see that storm Barra will be followed by Storm Corrie. I am not sure what this will be representative of, but quite possibly there will be a disaster in Coronation Street, the well-known Mancunian soap series that has been running for decades.
Mancunian has to do with Manchester, UK and nothing to do with Manchuria. At least I can’t see a connection, but no doubt there is one somewhere.
As it was jolly cold in the north as a consequence of Storm Barra, I had thought the next one should have been called Storm Crikeyitscoldoutthere or Storm Calamity or Storm Carn’tgetanyworsecanit.
Sadly not, but then I didn’t suggest these to the Met Office. Another time may be.
As regards Storm Barra, there was extensive damage and disruption, just like at Pearl Harbour, but only one death thankfully (as far as I can tell).
Venetia Smith, 80, went missing from her home in Blandford, Dorset, this morning, prompting her family to call the police.
The elderly woman was tragically found in the River Stour after her stroller was spotted at a bridge crossing near a supermarket.
This is extremely sad, but does seem odd that she should be out in a storm. Couldn’t someone have done her shopping if she was going to the supermarket? Or was she just going for some fresh air? You know a bit of a blow.
She certainly was made of tough stuff if she could brave the elements with a stroller. But doesn’t seem terribly sensible. Perhaps she had just had her ‘booster’ vaccine shot and she was invigorated and just bombed along.
Or, more likely, the shot gave her hallucinations and she went a bit peculiar as one would. Did she drown, or did she die by, with, from Covid 19 as most seem to do nowadays?
But I take my hat off to her (please excuse the bald patch), and offer my sincere condolences to the family. R.I.P. Venetia, all will be well in the end.
Perhaps I might round off this post with a piece of sandpaper…..On second thoughts a few words instead.
Barra is Bar-Ra or ‘Son of the father’ among other things. In fact, well worth looking into this in much more detail.
Or in Spanish, a rod, perhaps in iron, or a stick.
Or perhaps a cross bar, like the bar on the cross, strictly the ‘T’ bar that Jesus Christ hung on.
Or, as it is close to barrow, like a long barrow, a place where the dead are laid to rest as Jesus was.
I see it is said that Barra, an island in the Outer Hebrides, is considered by some the most beautiful island, although what the competition was I don’t know. It does look lovely though.
Barra could even be a wheel barrow. Obvious really, if you a London Cockney you would call a wheel barrow, a barra.
Or if you are me, you would say a barrow that is truly a barrow, is a ‘wheel’ (real) barra!!
And Storm Barra came wheeling in from the Atlantic, a real, wheeling Barra!!!
But wait there’s more (please no more). It brought snow and ice. Therefore it was a ‘brrrr’ Barra!
Barra sounds and is very close to bara. In welsh this is ‘bread’. Which brings me back to Jesus, the Bread of Life which He said of Himself.
We are drawing close to Christmas, when many in the world celebrate the birth of Jesus. Whilst the day is certainly not (so I am told) the day He was born on, He is said to be a king. Why shouldn’t a king have more than one birthday?
After all, Elizabeth II, queen of England etc., has an official and a real birthday.
So as you gear up for Christmas if you celebrate it in some way, give some thought to Jesus, the bread of life, who is the heavenly Father’s beautiful Boy.
Christmas is an official holiday for many. Personally, I consider every day with Jesus is a holiday.
There is a hill on Barra, the highest, called Heaval in English. Rather like heaven, even heaven’s al or angel. There is a statue of Mary holding up Jesus as a baby. Now I don’t go with statuary of this kind, it doesn’t represent all that Jesus is, and misleads many.
But it does show Jesus holding a star, the star of the sea perhaps. Jesus is called a bright morning star. A star is associated with His birth.
Storms may come and storms will go. Jesus came a long time ago then went away again. He did say he would be back though.
More on that another time. For now I will say for me, every day’s a holiday with Jesus.
How about you?
P.S. If you should think that the government can cancel your Christmas, do think again please. See G is for…..guidance for more help if you really are struggling.
