Nightline Inside Account of U.S. Eavesdropping on Americans

ABC News: Exclusive: Inside Account of U.S. Eavesdropping on Americans

I have been following politics for a while now. Each day seemes to become bigger and bigger news and fall outs. I am in no way savvy of how all this comes together @ times. But I believe I am trying to be and stay an informed American who dose not want to close her eyes while the government continues to lie to us.

The Parable Of The Spoons~Beautiful Story

This is from a very old entry of mine. I posted it like 4 years ago.

A holy man was having a conversation with the Lord one day and said, "Lord, I would like to know what Heaven and Hell are like. "The Lord led the holy man to two doors. He opened one of the doors and the holy man looked in. In the middle of the room was a large round table. In the middle of the table was a large pot of stew which smelled delicious and made the holy man's mouth water. The people sitting around the table were thin and sickly. They appeared to be famished. They were holding spoons with very long handles and each found it possible to reach into the pot of stew and take a spoonful, but because the handle was longer than their arms, they could not get the spoons back into their mouths. The holy man shuddered at the sight of their misery and suffering. The Lord said, "You have seen Hell."

They went to the next room and opened the door. It was exactly the same as the first one. There was the large round table with the large pot of stew which made the holy man's mouth water. The people were equipped with the same long-handled spoons, but here the people were well nourished and plump, laughing and talking. The holy man said, "I don't understand." It is simple" said the Lord, "it requires but one skill. You see, they have learned to feed each other. While the greedy think only of themselves.
After reading this, it made me sit back and say wow!

Just Watched Iron Man Tonight

I thought I would put up some pixs of Iron Man :-). I did not like Robert Downey Jr in his young and younger years. He was such a jerk. But this movie impressed me. And he looks pretty handsome also :-). I don't think anyone else could have pulled this movie off.
The movie was really good & clean. That's a rare thing in these day and times. So if you have not seen it yet-it's worth watching. If you have watched it what did you think of it? Remember don't give away any of the movie. We don't want to spoil it for the one's that have not seen it yet.
I was so excited when I went to post this-and saw so many of you from J-Land!!! Big HUGS and happiness that you are here! I will be reading journals either tonight or tomorrow. But for the first time in days I do not feel so panicky over thinking I was going too lose so many wonderful friends!
On another note-Has anyone figured out how to get our journal entries moved over here. I am clueless in this department. Any help would be so appreciated.
Luv & HUGS to all of you~Donna

Another beautiful Day!

I just love Fall and Winter months. Today is so pretty here in Florida. A cool breeze and a little nip in the air. Even our furbabies wanted to stay out longer. They love just sitting and sniffing the different smells :-).

Other than that not much of anything has been going on today. Isn't that terrible lol. Today is just really quiet and calm.

Brittany our daughter rented a DVD last night. It's the "new' little mermaid "Ariel's Beginning." It seems like a cute movie, even for a daughter who is 22 *grinning.* She grew up with the little mermaid, The Land Before Time and movies like that.

Our son Mark brought over the entire series of the "X Files" for me to watch. Yay no dang commercials :-). So this weekend would be a good time to put a dent in them.

I'm also reading a book that I got off of Paper back swap-called Jane and His Lordship's Legacy-By Jane Austin.

I'm waiting on 2 more books to come in the mail. The one I am really waiting on is called "Pillar Of The Earth. It's about (As a new age dawns in England's twelfth century, the building of a mighty Gothic cathedral sets the stage for a story of intrigue and power, revenge and betrayal.) It will be the longest book I have read, it has 983 pages! Can you tell I'm a bookworm :-).

Okay closing up shop. I'm just bored to tears today. Maybe Mark and I can go out to dinner tonight :-). Olive Garden sounds good right now.

Until later...

Hello...Migrating from AOL Journal

I am sure that many of you have heard the buzz about AOL journal's closing down very soon. A lot of people are pretty upset about it. Myself, I just feel sad. Sad that I will miss allot of my old friends-that were like family to me over there. But I also realize that somethings are not meant to last forever. AOL journal being one of them.

I have heard rave reviews about Blogger. So since it was so highly recommended, I decided this would be a great place to start over:-).

I look forward to seeing a lot of my old friends over here & making new ones @ Blogger. I am still learning how to do things over here at Blogger. But I at least wanted to say hello to all here. I will put up my Introduction sometime today.

I look forward to reading your comments and visiting your blogs.
