Daily Prompt: Unfurl the American Flag with Pride!

God bless America with all its imperfection.  After all, he who is without sin is the only one that can say a word against it without being a hypocrite.  Sadly it appears as if a certain faction in our own country is attempting to take away our history and heritage because they are “offended” all of a sudden.  There have been many offenses by many people.  If we all complained about something, what will be left or who will be left standing in this country?   A Coup d’ etat appears to be taking place because no one removes the history of a once great nation all of a sudden unless they are overthrowing it.  Something to think about.  These same people hate Trump and he wanted to make a better America.  They are trying to make him eat his words, instead they will bring the wrath of many against them and their fake causes.  Charlottesville police officers said “off the record” that they were not allowed to interfere in that protest by order of that city’s mayor.  Not sure how many are aware of what is going on right now.

 

Daily Prompt: Willy-Nilly Kaleidodesigns

Sometimes I like to play with the various Kaleidoscope effects my software offers. One just splits the image and another does the actual Kaleidoscope design effect and allows you to place it where you want it in terms of color and shape, lots of options.  The split effect they call kaleidoscope splits 4 images at a time.  There is a plan to what I do eventually but my designing does begin willy-nilly.

Daily Prompt: Carousel of Life!

I used to love the Merry-go-round as a child.  It was less violent than many of the other rides and it had animals, usually horses!

Well, these come to mind.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Delta Lady

My friends and I saw Joe Cocker open for the Who at the Grande Ballroom in Detroit in 1969.  This was the Premier of the Who‘s Rock Opera “Tommy” which turned out to be their biggest success.  No camera’s allowed inside.

We used to be regulars and saw many well known acts, some I cannot recall but their regular bands at that time got to be friends/acquaintances of ours.  Iggy & the Stooges, better known as Iggy Pop & The MC5 among them.  We would sometimes get together at John Sinclair’s house and stuff “anti-war” literature in envelopes with some other very interesting people that will remain nameless, for now anyway.  Enjoy the memories of Joe and “Delta Lady.”

Daily Prompt: Wish I Could Just “Hit The Bottle” Sometimes

I seldom ever indulge in alcohol. Never liked it in any form “grape juice that burns!”

I will not go as far as to say I am jealous of those that love to drink or get high but sometimes, well, yes I am, sorta.  My body has never been able to handle chemicals of any kind very well.  The Doctors tried like heck to give me something I didn’t react badly to when I had to have major surgery many years ago.  Even the “good stuff” as one called it, in a low dosage was problematic.

I am extremely chemically sensitive.  Not allergic in a dangerous sense, but swelling and rashes and reactions at times so I learned to do things more “naturally” than what many do in their lives.  Grab the latest advertised product and screw up the environment a little more.  I go with Vinegar and baking soda to clean, usually.  I am able to use the Lysol with hydrogen peroxide when I really want to kill germs without much irritation.

My husband and I used to make our own wine for a while.  No sulphites, of course.  I had no idea that our wine was being systematically poisoned like this by the alcohol industry.  People need to be aware and ask before purchasing their wines if they care.  There are many wineries now, especially in my area, and most do put that chemical in their wines that can cause problems in some especially with asthma.
