Scary news about a Mysterious Skin Disease – spreading across the World

Sunday, September 30th, 2007

This was such a scary read for me today, and trust me, I am not easily scared. However, let me explain what this is all about. Do you know someone that has Morgellons Disease? And no, I do not know anybody with this disease, but it happened that today I stumbled across this site and got scared, and not a little bit. So I went on and searched for reliable sources of information and am so glad I found it here. Please go to this site and read ALL about it. Because if the disease is found in it’s early stages – it could be prevented from spreading in the organs. See what is written on the page that I told you to read, and see the photos of the boy before and after the treatment.

Actually, I think you should also read the About Us page on the site, and read the story of the site’s author, and his ongoing research of this illness. Marc Neumann had this illness and cured it, all with research on his own, and he has another site where he is selling the creams and everything that he used to cure it. I admire him really, and such people as this Marc Neumann are HEROES in my eyes. God blessed him, and I mean it with all my heart.

I don’t know what to think about where the illness is coming from. Is it really the work of evil geniuses, and if so, do the once behind it really think that only part of the population of the world could be “taken care of” while keeping the disease far from those that are meant to survive an epidemic?

Scary thoughts, and more scary thoughts are following one another in my mind at the moment. There should be a way to stop this horror disease. There should be also a way to prevent anything like it to occur again. I think the numbers are huge with 20 to 30 Million cases a year, and don’t you? :/
Talk to you soon and have a great Sunday.

Painting Genius – Totally Useless or Useful?

Saturday, September 29th, 2007

Today I read an article on yahoo about a painter that made me gasp, and I mean it. Not only is his way of art kind of weird, but he is very, very talented, and like a wizard with his brushes.
He produced some weird paintings however, and there are many people, and critiques calling him crazy too. From his statements you could see how little he cares about the critiques, and the crazy name calling. See this video here of the portrait made with his blood.

If someone asked me would I do something like it, I’d reply – most probably not. And even if I was as talented as he is, I would have chosen some real colors instead of my own blood, but yeah, it was his statement after all 🙂

And here is the article that I was telling you about, and there is yet another video for you to see 😉

The Essence of Domestic ABUSE – Fight the Total Uselessness!

Thursday, September 27th, 2007

Essence, originally uploaded by Sir Brightside.

On this Blogging for Hope Day I opted to cover the story of a pen pal lady on MyLot.com. She is abused at home by her husband. Not physically, but mentally, and with placing her in big danger with her health.

The story goes like this, and I am quoting her here:

” I am always hiding things from my husband because I am afraid of what he will say or do. Is this abuse of some sorts? We have been married for 24 years and that is all I have been seeing and it is to the point of me having to hide even being on MyLot or planning to do something without him up in my face. I have a job that pays well but was placed on medical from my doctor three months ago because I was brought home by my boss for having fainted in the break room.

Ever since then he is like you have to go back to work – I have no money – when are you going back to work – that costs money – this costed how much – you cannot do that or you cannot do this. He even called my doctor because he did not believe me when I told him the doctor would not send me back to work – he told the doctor that he thinks I am faking this problem.

I was told that I have diabetes and that my readings were that of a coma person. He has never once asked how I felt or feel. I had to get insulin the other day and he said he wasn’t giving me the money and that I had better go back to work if I plan on buying it. I went and applied for help and when I got home he flared up about how it is an embossment for me to have to go seeking help. I just do not know what to do. I feel as though the only reason I am in this mans life is to support him with a job that makes 2 times his pay. What would you do here? Hugs”

To tell you the truth, I couldn’t believe that a guy who is in love, and being married for 24 years with this lady, could display such selfishness, and no care at all for her medical condition. If something is ABUSE, than this is a great example of Domestic Mental Abuse in my books.

I replied to her with the following:
“…I feel so sorry for you when I read what you are saying. This does sound like abuse to me, and I’d like to tell your story on my blog, and of course without naming you explicitly with name and personal info.

In your case, I would definitely not go to work if you are feeling ill, no matter what. Your doctor told you to stay at home because of your condition, and no matter what your husband is saying, you should not go. Is he only abusive with words or also physically? Because he is also abusing you physically you should go away from there, if possible of course.

How can he deny you your medicine is beyond understanding for me, and the fact that he has told your doctor that you are faking it. This guy does not deserve you my dear, that’s for sure. Please check this discussion about the Abuse issue and let me know if you would like me to cover your story for tomorrow on my blog”

In her answer she gave me permission to use her story, as you can see here:
“He says things to me that makes me feel as though the only reason he married me was for a tax write off – money tree – someone to go to work and come home and cleanup after. He keeps telling me that the medications are too expensive but when I tried to get help paying for them he said that it is a lazy mans way of treating the system.

He has never physically touched me or threw anything at me because I think he knows I would leave without a doubt but I did tell him that if he was so worried about what everyone else in his so called high classed life would say tell them that he needs better pay or he needs a loan. I just do not get the fact that all he wants me to do is getting back to work so I can start the same thing, all over again to where I am the bread winner paying all the bills while he racks up more and having nothing to show for it. It is my fault there is no cable ( big deal) it is my fault there is no food in the house ( that is why I tried to get assistance) he has no medications ( no insurance while off work ) no money to golf – bowl – eat out every day with his family – buy lotto – and most of all no money to play all those pools they have every day at his work such as nascar – football – lottery – horse racing – ect.

Well we don’t have cable – no more eating out – no more work pools – no more lotto – no extra money for sports and that is why he is pressuring me back to work. But if he needs to call the doctor every time I go instead of taking a day off from work so be it. I just think it would be easier if he just came out and told everyone that he is trying to hold down the fort for a while I get better and get back to work. Swallow his pride for once, if you will. Yes you can post this on the blog for I would like to know if there is any one else with this problem. Thank you may have helped others as well. Hugs”

What could we do against Abuse? Be it in our lives, or in the lives of people that we know? Or, wherever? Apart from displaying the various stories on our blogs, what could we really do to stop any type of Abuse? Our world will be such a lovely place if there was no abuse, and no greed, or selfishness, and evilness.

Most probably abuse could be eliminated from our lives from the moment we get born. By our parents, and the way we are brought up, and the values and norms taught to us by them? However what if it is not only the parents holding the Sacred Key to a more loving human race? Where should we look for answers than?

Cute and funny, but still totally useless?

Yes Way, originally uploaded by manmadepants.

In Telegraph today I read an article about the worries of Natural Monuments, a Dutch Organization for the preservation of nature, that because of the explosive boom of digital photography online there are too many amateur photographers in the woods and surroundings causing harm to animals. And what is the harm caused exactly you might ask? In the article they explain into great length that foxes are fed salty meet to have them drink while shooting the photos, or using all kind of tricks to get them on the road. Toads are sprinkled with stuff to get them stay quit, and many other harmful tricks.
While I loved the photo exhibited here, as it looks very cute and fun, and the colors are between my favorites, I wonder how the owner of the lizards and the couches got them to perform these tricks and behave like humans. On the photo the photographer has placed the following explanation:
“Yes Way
I swear on my life this is 100% real. I was walking down the street looking for stuff to photograph and this guy is just sitting outside a coffee shop with this 80 year old woman and he is taking these little sofa things out of a bag. Then he opens another compartment in the bag and there are about five lizards like this guy. Then he would pose them, and they would just sit there like this. Don’t really know why.

He didn’t really explain much but he did say they take about three months to train them to do this. I didn’t bother asking if he only trained his lizards to sit in relaxing human posses or if there were other ones too. The whole thing was just to oddly perfect, I really didn’t need him to go into detail.

Also I like the surprising detailed craftsmanship of the sofa. Now I can say I’ve truly seen it all!”

I have to admit that if presented with the opportunity to make such an exceptional shot without having caused any harm to the animal myself – I would. No question about that. I would have asked though what methods did they use to train the lizards, as it puzzles me after having read the mentioned above article. Makes you wonder – cute and fun combined with beauty, and yet totally useless or not?

Cool site and so Totally Usefull ;)
