Happy Earthday, Granny Dot!!! An icon in my book!!!
Perfect Title, “Unforgettable You.”

Loose Laces

Today is the ninety-fourth anniversary of my Mother’s birth. Although she has been gone since 2002, my memories of her are fresh and vibrant. She was loved by her family and friends and as the minister at her funeral stated, “Dot loved everyone”.
Dot, I miss you and I hope one of my last memories while I am alive is of your smiling face.

Schoep & John Unger: Nothing But Love

•August 6, 2013 • Leave a Comment
John & Sheop in Lake Superior

John & Sheop in Lake Superior

John Unger of Bayfield, Wisconsin, is a man with a heart of gold!

John and his shepherd mix Scheop, have become an internet sensation over the past 12 months. Scheop was diagnosed with a case of severe arthritis around this time last year. The veterinarian told John that Scheop would need to be put to sleep very soon because of the severity of his arthritis. John was upset with the diagnosis and took it upon himself to make his best friend happy and comfortable as long as he lived. With the knowledge he had of arthritis, John decided to take Scheop to hes favorite place, Lake Superior. John knew that arthritis patients were somewhat relieved when using water therapy. So, John took Sheop out in the lake with its higher than normal summer temperatures so that Sheop could relax and feel weightless. Unger called on a photographer friend, Hannah Stonehouse Hudson, to snap a few pictures of  Sheop, in-case he didn’t live much longer. A few days later, Hannah uploaded one of the photos on her Facebook page, and John and Sheop became a sensation! In only a few days, the photo received over 300,000 likes and 32,000 comments.

Sheop

John began floating with Sheop some 13 years ago. When Sheop was young, he wasn’t a good swimmer, so John would get in the lake with him and help him get used to the water and learn how to swim. It took some time, but John finally got his friend to chase a tennis ball into the lake without his help. John said, “Whenever he got into the water he wouldn’t swim and would just put his paws on my shoulders and want to be held. One of these times, all of a sudden, he was asleep. We’ve been doing it periodically since then.” After Sheop’s diagnosis, John has taken him to the lake more often. John said he can see an improvement in Sheop’s limp, but doesn’t think it will ever go away for good. Sheop was a rescue dog that Unger adopted around 20 years ago. Sheop was abused as a puppy and it took a long while for him to gain the trust of John.

After the photo of Sheop and John went viral, people from all over America were sending John a helping hand, in the form of medicine for Sheop, paying veterinarian bills, paying for treatments, and much more. The love from strangers was overwhelming for John. This he had not imagined!

Sheop was the love of John’s life. On July 18, 2013, Sheop passed away. John posted on his Facebook page: “I Breathe But I Can’t Catch My Breath…”  “Schoep passed yesterday. More information in the days ahead.” What a sad day for John and all of us following Sheop’s story. John also stated: “As best as I can guess, the treatments have turned back the clock on his life about a year-and-a-half to two years,” Unger told TODAY.com in September 2012. “I’ve taken him for walks on trails that we haven’t been on in three years. He’s not dragging his back legs like he was before. To be able to do that again with him, words can’t even describe the feeling.”

Thanks to all of the folks that were able to help Sheop live his last days in the comfort of his best friends hands!

Solar-Flare Cataclysm Imminent

•August 5, 2013 • 2 Comments

I haven’t followed the Edward Snowden case as many have lately. Snowden is a former NSA employee that leaked vital information to the public, without government consent. The following article caught my attention. I try to stay up to date on the happening at NASA these days, and this article made me really sit back and think about the coming times…

( Article from www.chronicle.su )

MOSCOW, Russia – Edward Snowden, hacker-fugitive and former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor, revealed Tuesday that a series of solar flares is set to occur in September, killing hundreds of millions of people. Documents provided by Snowden prove that, as of 14 years ago, Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) remote viewers knew that the event was inevitable. Ever since, the world’s governments have quietly been trying to prepare for the sweeping global famine to result.

Speaking from his room at Sheremetyevo Airport’s Hotel Novotel, Snowden revealed that government preparations for September’s catastrophic solar flares have been “to only limited avail.” The flares’ results, he said, are known casually throughout the global intelligence community as “the killshot.”

Remote viewers employed by the CIA’s Project Stargate use their ability to perceive geographically and chronologically distant events to protect America. Since 1999 they have known about the solar-flare event but have been threatened into silence by enforcers on the secret government’s payroll.

As a part of hiring Snowden as a contractor, the NSA granted the 30-year-old access to all communications on earth. Now he has provided The Internet Chronicle with top-secret Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) documents outlining just how terrible the solar flares’ results will be. In just two months, “the killshot” is set to disable all electronic food and water delivery systems.

Ever since the late 20th century, hundreds of millions of people have begun to rely on technological automation to enable their very lives. Solar flares release electromagnetic pulses, hazardous to electronic circuits. The smallest electronic circuits, such as those in computers’ central processing units, will be the most vulnerable.

Snowden said FEMA and the National Disaster Reduction Center of China have been taking steps for 14 years in light of the findings of Project Stargate. FEMA’s own documents, provided by Snowden, lay out how the organization plans to round-up tens of millions of the poorest Americans for housing at secure locations “to better facilitate feeding and provision of consumer goods.”

Snowden, for years a CIA contractor, released testimonials from hundreds of remote viewers. Many of those remote viewers are still on the payroll of the governments of the United States and the Russian Federation. Those testimonials, though written independently by the analysts, are comprised of 4,472 pages, every single one of which, alarmingly, evince Snowden’s account.

“The massive electromagnetic pulse from the solar flares, or ‘the killshot,’ will shutter most of the world’s electrical systems,” said Snowden. “The Americans whose lives are most at risk are the elderly and the infirmed, those who depend on technology to enable their receiving home care or life-sustaining medical treatment.”

Throughout the 1970s and the 1990s, Russia and the United States were desperate to track and monitor the construction and maintenance of each other’s nuclear silos. The nations’ governments openly admitted having poured billions of dollars into the training of elite teams of remote viewers. With their powers, the remote viewers were able to deter nuclear launches and, ultimately, bring an end to the Cold War.  In the mid-’90s, the CIA simply pretended to close its remote-viewing program, so that it could operate more effectively.

Snowden said he hopes that his coming forward will allow Project Stargate’s participants to be able to live normal, open lives again, “instead of as circus animals, instead of as freaks.” He added, “[Significant others of Project Stargate employees] have to get Q clearances just to cohabitate with, without even marrying, their loved ones. That’s tantamount to slavery.”

Humanity is about to pay a most dire price for its technological dependence. That price, said Snowden, proved a leading factor in his decision to come forward to the press – about both the global Holocaust to ensue, as well as NSA analysts’ power, on the slightest whim, to listen to the phone calls of any person on earth.

Snowden said, with regard to CIA remote viewers, “I have seen too many brave whistleblowers become subjects of smear and ridicule for using their talents to expose the truth.” Added Snowden, bitterly, “Well, we’ll see who’s Mr. Chuckles when ‘the killshot’ goes down.”

WikiLeaks attorneys; and Anatoly Kucherena, Snowden’s own counsel, together produced a video calling for calm and global preparedness. Monday, Snowden sent the video, below, to the Russian Federal Migration Service as part of his call for asylum.

History in the Making

Big Spring North-20120701-00043

The last 12 months have been a very interesting journey to say the least. Courtney and I left Atlanta, Georgia at the end of June, 2012. We arrived in Colton, California on July 2nd to begin life on the west  coast. The journey across southern American was memorable and exciting. We passed through Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona before reaching California. As we drove through El Paso, Texas on the border of Mexico, we could see Juarez, Mexico from the interstate. All of the small huts (living quarters) that we could see had no power and probably now running water. It really opened my eyes up to the other side of the border and their daily struggle to survive. And if you were in Juarez looking over the border into El Paso, all you could think is “that is the American dream!” Sky scrapers, universities, expensive cars, city lights and decent work would draw my attention too.

After arriving in Colton, we began moving our belongings into our new apartment. That didn’t last long. After a day in Colton we were told that we couldn’t live there with our dogs because they did not meet the weight restrictions for the complex. Courtney spoke with them over a 2 month period before we left Atlanta to make sure everything was set-up before we arrived. They agreed to accept our dogs over the phone, but in person it was a totally different story. So, we began apartment hunting once again. After 5 days with no electricity or hot water, we found a place to call home in Moreno Valley. We used candles for light at night and purchased batteries for our portable radio for entertainment. It sure was an adventure!

Now that we are settled in the Golden State, life is moving right along. Courtney is working and taking paralegal classes in the evening. I am working and doing business on the side as usual. My progress with the music has slowed down due to my other ventures that require just as much time and concentration. I stated a clothing company called “The Gold State” which will represent my two brands, World Wide Riot Gear and Ava+New. My biggest task and accomplishment this year is the opening of Walk Of Art Gallery, an online shop that sales original photographs from my grandfather, Ken Anderson. I asked Paw if he would let me start a website and online shop for financial benefits to us both and for the world to enjoy his beautiful work. He agreed and I began work. The online shop opened June 1st of this year. Once Courtney and I visit a few art festivals and art walks here in Southern California, we expect business to pick up quite a bit.

Our doggies are living well. Remy is slowly adding years to her life as she gets older and Bubba seems to stay the same age, or at least act the same age, as always. They both enjoy California, especially the weather. We get a nice breeze around 5 pm each day and Remy loves to take a walk while the wind blows her ears. Bubba is always happy, unless he thinks they are out, or running out of food, that’s when he plays security over their food bowls. My sweet children they are!

Nothing but more blessings to come!!!

12 Months of Memories

I finally got around to updating my Flickr page. It has been a couple of years since I added new photos. I have pictures from our road trip beginning in Georgia and ending in California. My dad came to visit us in May of this year and I added those photos as well. We went to the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam while he was in town.

Life is still moving at its steady pace. Enjoy it while it lasts!
