Saying Thanks


Although I don’t believe in having just one day on which to show our appreciation for all the gifts and blessings one enjoys in life, perhaps this day is extra-special to also reflect on what those gifts and blessings are.

As for me, I am extraordinarily grateful for my new life in a new country. Don’t think for one minute that I can’t appreciate how blessed I am with health and vitality. Those gifts that permit me at my age of 72 to start anew with creativity and hope for the future. When I thought that the rest of my life would be spent in the RV, I’m given this opportunity to design and build my own small house. I love a challenge and this one could hardly fit me any better combining as it does art, practicality, organization, and determination. What’s not to be thankful for?

I am grateful for both family and friends here and everywhere. I am grateful for the chance, even in the “boonies” to connect with the world at large with my blogs and for all those who read them. I am grateful for my three dogs who teach me what unconditional love is.

I pray that in turn, my little adventure may help others to accept that it is never too late. I wish you all a song dancing in your heart, a head thrilled with a dream, and the health and gumption to forge ahead and make that dream come true.

Out worldly???


I realize that technically, this post is not strictly about metaphysics. However, people who are ready to look at the evidence for a reality outside the accepted social norms and especially the scientific world might be interested in this.

For a number of months now, I have followed Lloyd Pye and his attempts to get the Starchild skull DNA determined. It’s all mind blogging. Pye has written an e-book titled Intervention Theory. I had already heard his arguments in favour of some kind of intervention by an advanced species from another planet in mating with the human species (also called genetic engineering) of which we would be the result.

Pye has specialized in hominoids for more than 20 years and has done a lot of research on creatures such as the Yeti in Asia, Bigfoot in our corner of the world and he recently posted a link to the discovery of a Conehead in Peru. Here’s the link:

There’s another link to such a topic and here it is:

Pye relates the story of Zana a hairy female much in the style of Bigfoot. She lived in Russia, mated with human males, and produced human children. This is the link to her story with photos of her children:

Anyway, this is not for the strangeness or sensational factor that I publish these links. It’s just that while scientists are supposed to look at any previously unknown phenomena with an open mind, they look at any explanation that will nicely fit with old theories. This is commonly called HAVING A CLOSED MIND.

Dr. Gary Schwartz, PhD. professor of psychology at the University of Arizona, has founded a department that looks at the evidence of communication with discarnate (spirits) and psychic. As one who has at times been contacted as a medium to transmit messages to those living in the flesh, I certainly have anecdotal evidence of this form of communication, how truly it relates to the living, and how at times it provides comfort. Here’s the link to the Veritas program:

Dr. Schwartz was interviewed by George Noory, the host of the radio Coast to Coast am that runs from 10 pm to 2 am PST and here’s the link:

I find it captivating to openly look at any evidence of a world outside our socially acceptable theory of the universe. Isn’t it a lot more interesting than to open a webpage like yahoo to find the latest news about Jennifer Anniston, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, and the stories of children or teenagers who become millionaires before reaching adulthood? How uplifting…

As a final note on links for news, whenever I want to find a cross-section of news around the world, I highly recommend the BBC online and here’s a link:


I hope that you enjoy these links. Now, I can go back to more mundane concerns.

An Impossible Week--a Recalcitrant Computer—News on Construction


The week of the Day of the Dead saw an influx of tourists from October 27th up to the middle of last week. Impossible to access the internet because of s…l…o…w……a…s….m…o…l…a…s…s…e…s connection on account of so much traffic. I would usually give up after an hour or more of trying without success. Sorry.

Then over the weekend, try as I might, I still could not have access to ANYTHING starting with my opening page at yahoo. I suppose that I had to come to the conclusion that there was something wrong with my equipment. I bought software to speed up my PC and it helped, but just a little. I have problems with the DNS and when I checked my downloads, I realized that for months now, NVidia had failed to update…

So I’m taking the contraption tomorrow to Tony in town in the hope that he can straighten up things. So I may not be able to post for a while.

The walls are up and taking photos is delayed because of what precedes. Also, I’m having difficulties in accessing both blogs and my email boxes. Never a day without some frustration… guess my task in this life is to learn patience.

I got my generator and was able to do my own laundry in my own washer for the first time in 20 months. I never imagined that doing laundry would give me so much satisfaction, almost elation! But it did. Go figure.

I’m working on a post about moving to Mexico for many good and all the bad reasons. Coming as soon as I get a more cooperative computer.

I’m posting this on both my blogs and apologize for this tardiness.
