---Lunch break---
                                    Bristol, England

Daddy talked to the taxi driver about how nicely the English design their truck banner/logos. Compare this truck to the next big truck you see on the highway! (to my American blog readers) :-)

I think Walmart just lost the game against Sainsbury's! 

Our Nation's HISTORY

If you have not read this before, please do so now.  History teaches us a lot, but only if we listen, learn and act on the knowledge it provides.


This is the most interesting thing I've read in a long time. The sad thing about it, you can see it coming.

I have always heard about this democracy countdown. It is interesting to see it in print. God help us, not that we deserve it.

How Long Do We Have?

About the time our original thirteen states adopted their new constitution in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh , had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years earlier:

"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government."

"A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury."

"From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship."

"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years"

"During those 200 years, those nations always progressed through the following sequence:

1. From bondage to spiritual faith;

2. From spiritual faith to great courage;

3. From courage to liberty;

4. From liberty to abundance;

5. From abundance to complacency;

6. From complacency to apathy;

7. From apathy to dependence;

8. From dependence back into bondage"

Professor Joseph Olson of Hemline University School of Law, St. Paul ,   Minnesota , points out some interesting facts concerning the 2000  Presidential election:

Number of States won by: Democrats: 19 Republicans: 29

Square miles of land won by: Democrats: 580,000 Republicans: 2,427,000

Population of counties won by: Democrats: 127 million Republicans: 143 million

Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Democrats: 13.2 Republicans: 2.1

Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory Republican won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of this great country. Democrat territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in government-owned tenements and living off various forms of government welfare..." Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's popula tion already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase.

If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegal's and they vote, then we can say goodbye to the   USA in fewer than five years.

If you are in favor of this, then by all means, delete this message. If you are not, then pass this along to help everyone realize just how much   is at stake, knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to our freedom.

Thanks for reading. But, PLEASE, pass this along.

Neat song from movie "UP"

I like this old fashioned sounding band/orchestra song. Similar to "The Piano" an animated movie short on youtube (piano song)

-Welsh Rarebit- The history and song

Welsh rarebit is what they would call the catch if hunters could not find anything suitable enough to eat except maybe rabbit. So it was called Rare-bit. 

We have a CD with the song on it. It is played by bagpipes 
and has a nice tune. Here are some videos about how to 
make your own Welsh Rarebit on Youtube:

An Et-cetera post... random photos....

Have a blessed day in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Joyfully HIS,

 At "Cath Kidstons" Fabric and accessories shop in Bristol this year. 
The camera strap was made by a homeschool friend, and it traveled all the way from OKC to Scotland and England and back again!  :-)
She sells them too. Her blog is:

I made an apron for a lady at the Farmer's Market out of this fabric.

The apron (It still needs the ties and neck band but other than that it is finished)

A new friend who came to my booth at the market. She got her flowers at the same place  I get mine! Aren't they beautiful?


Strange words ( Traditional Gaelic Scottish) in Dunoon, Scotland June 2010

Our Musical family!

                                           Sweet smile! :-)

Now this is a photo for Jonathan, this has become his favorite store recently. In just one week we went to 5 different locations!

The family chauffeur (my mum) grew weary of driving us to Home Depots after a while! He was comparing brands and prices for a drill or jigsaw, or something like that..... How would I know? I am not the tool person of the family....  :-)
I gave out plenty of VIAs (gospel magazines printed in Canada) to the employees at each store.  One checkout cashier clerk asked for more, saying emphatically,  "Our employees need religion!"
 "No," I replied, "They need a RELATIONSHIP, (with Jesus Christ) not religion!" :-)

In Elgin during the Scottish International Festival of Trumpets. 

This  Roman soldier guarded us as I listened to dry, long seminars about the different kinds of trumpet mouthpieces and the patents needed for those trumpet mouthpieces.... 
How dare spell checker highlight "Elgin"? It is a legitimate name! I know because I have been there. :-) 

After our Homeschool Band Concert 
May 2010

Flying back to the States from Scotland...
And no, I wasn't in the plane pictured! I was on the ground at the time. :-)
