Angelic Realm Four: "The Faithfulness Angels"
When we place "Trust in ourselves or another", we in turn invest our belief in the strength to fulfill a nobel goal or everyday challenge and trust in the possibility that it will be accomplished. Faithfulness is blossomed thru "Trust" and when we begin to trust the higher power inside of which "The Faithfulness Angels Realm" reside, we empower our own sense of Purpose and Being. When we trust a person at their word, we in a real sense elevate them in their perception of being trust-worthy. Of course trust is developed through sincere thoughts, words and actions and when we choose to trust someone who has betrayed us in the past, with that act of faith, we sow theseeds of healing and growth,and allow the possibility for what was wronged to be righted once again...

Laughter is Good Therapy

Okay, okay...these ancient advertisements will surely make you smile and perhaps even laugh out loud.  Then ask yourself, "What were they thinking?" 

I particularly enjoy the Blatz beer ad -"How mother and baby picked up."  That's exactly what my mother's doctor told her when she was trying not to miscarry -  "Sit, have a beer and cigarette and relax."  Blatz beer was tasty.

Thank you sister Paula for the forward!

Dirty Oil Pipelines Overland and Underground Everywhere!

Our songbirds will sing no more.  Their nesting habitats are being bulldozed under in the tar sands mining process with the whole Boreal forest in danger, especially if the U.S. demands more dirty oil.  These are the same birds that visit our backyards.  No more.

Just what are Alberta's Tar Sands oil deposits and how are they mined?  See the horrifying video below. Keep in mind this was a video taken in March 2008.  This is what it means to be getting our U.S. oil from our northern neighbor.  

The deadline for the U.S. President's decision on allowing the behemoth of a pipeline named the XL Keystone Pipeline, (which would cross over and under 7 states and all their waterways and aquifers) is arriving in a few days (Sept. 3). 

The smaller diameter Keystone pipelines carrying less corrosive oil (also by the same big business Trans Canada) are notoriously leaky.  This new wide diameter Xtra Large (XL) pipeline with the most corrosive crude tar sands oil is a disaster so big waiting to happen, that it boggles the mind.  YOU can make a difference by calling and/or emailing President Obama to say,"NO, to the XL Keystone Pipeline."

The world must move away from the dirty oil table and governments must incentivize alternative energy solutions.  I believe we are just ready to be asked, "How can you make a difference?"  Allow us to demonstrate how we can conserve energy better and generate energy in a cleaner way.  We are Americans.  We understand innovation.  We are top in the world for inventiveness.  Let us lead the way.

Aho and Amen brothers and sisters. Please make the call or sign the petition at this link: Tar Sands Action.org Today!

Clean Food is Toxin-free

Do you think about the food you fix for your kids or buy in the markets or get for take-out or eat in restaurants?  I do.  It is always on my mind - ever since the birth of my first child over 32 years ago.

The symptoms I never thought would happen to MY child were mysterious to me and my husband at first.  How can a child need less sleep than you do?  How can a baby run before walking?  How can a toddler not be interested in Sesame Street and escape from every buckle, latch and door lock?

Then came more babies and more allergies and even more behaviors that were hard to understand.  All I can say is - TIRED MAMA.  

Now I'm a wise mama and have become an environmental activist.  I strive to avoid pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, (all hormone disruptors), artificial colorants and preservatives (all petro-chemical neuro-toxins) and recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH) in dairy products and antibiotics in the feed given to the animals we eat for meat - and GMOs.  

One of the most compelling movements today is for the labeling of GMOs in our food. You can't know what it in food unless it is labeled. With the advent of mandatory nutritional labeling in the 1980s, I was able to alleviate most of the problems experienced by my children by choosing brands that had been checked out as free from toxins.  
But why don't GMOs require labeling?
Can you spell M-O-N-S-A-N-T-O?  

It is just NOT acceptable that big agri-businesses are making us sick due to their negligent practices.

Why Label GMOs?

Being a filmmaker, I appreciate a good story with an educational/informational focus.  The link to the 6:27 minute video above is a call to action to support the making of a film explaining GMOs.  Watch the short video and then watch for the longer film documentary coming soon.  And if you care to support this film in the making with funding - all I can say is -THANK YOU!
