Photo Adoption Agency

Welcome to a brief view of my art gallery amply called Photo Adoption Agency. Admission is free. Please consider taking home one and give it a good home!

These photos are in need of good homes. All photos are housebroken and have had all their shots! They have been spayed and neutered and won’t bring in any pesky fleas or ticks. Training, shots, spaying/neutering, bathing and dipping are all included in the adoption fees!

Just hang them on a nice spot on your wall and they promise to bring you joy at every passing glance.They’re hardly any trouble at all, just dust them occasionally and make sure they always hang straight and they will last you a lifetime! They make great gifts! They are non-allergenic, too!

Prints are available as cards, matted, laminated, framed, and mounted, and a choice of matte and frame colors. These can also be made into key chains, note cards, postcards, T-shirts, mugs and more.

With a purchase of any of my butterfly related prints partial proceeds will be donated to Monarch Watch and the National Wildlife Federation.

With a purchase of any of my dog prints a donation will be made to the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast or you can click here
and make a donation through my sixdegrees.org donation badge.

William Jefferson Clinton

We need CHANGE for the good of WE THE PEOPLE
William Jefferson ClintonI was fortunate enough to see former President Bill Clinton speak the other day (10/1/08) on behalf of Barack Obama in Ft. Pierce, FL. Just seeing and listening to him speak made me wish that he was running again. No matter what you idiots think, William Jefferson Clinton was a great President. The economy was good, people had jobs, gas was less than $2.00 per gallon, the economy was going strong and the biggest thing there wasn’t a bogus, money sucking war for oil. What Clinton did in his eight years in office, after fixing what the other George Bush screwed up, George W. Bush screwed up in his first year of office. Now W. wants to bail out the businesses that are failing due to lack of sense, greed, poor management, you get the picture. W. is putting America deeper and deeper in debt because of his greed, immoral views, and his own agendas.

Bill Clinton in the crowdThe new McBush aka. McCain is only going to make things worse, not better. There will be no CHANGE for America or Americans, just more of the same of what we have had over the past eight years. PEOPLE WAKE UP and smell the stink. Vote for the one that stands for the ISSUES, not who you like based on skin color, military status or whether or not lipsticked and big on BIG OIL. VOTE intelligently. It’s time for change, it’s time to get rid of the idiots and pray that the next President will again be of the people, for the people and by the people.
Bill Clinton

If a Tree Falls……….

Tree Down
If a tree falls in the woods, do you hear it? We’ve all heard this asked before. But what if a tree, albeit a dead tree, falls in your own backyard, do you hear it? Well, the answer to that is yes, sort of, as I found out last night. And you FEEL it hit the ground. I heard it hit the ground (didn’t really hear it fall, heard the break) and thought someone was trying to break in and so did the dogs. My husband heard it and he was asleep. The neighbors behind us even heard and asked if we were OK, as we looked out to see what had happened.

There once were two Slash Pine trees, each were about 30 or 40 feet tall and growing just off our patio not more than two feet away and they were only about one foot apart. But then came Hurricane Francis and Hurricane Jeanne in 2004. Well, needless to say, we lost one of the pine trees as well as one on the vacant lot next door that the top third (yes, third, it broke in two places and it wasn’t a dead pine!) landed in our yard and partially on the patio. The bottom trunk of that tree, which is still about 18 foot tall is still standing and the middle part is laying on the ground next to it. (photo below)


Living in an area subject to hurricanes can take some getting use to for some. I personally, go with the flow. I don’t let those kind of threats bother me. I’ve already been through at least five hurricane since I’ve lived in Florida and one more (or a threat of one) isn’t going to scare me. I know what needs to be done, I prepare if the need arises. But mainly, I don’t freak because some moron on TV starts going on like it’s the end of the world and it’s still only a tropical storm. If and when it’s my time to go, well I guess I’m going to go whenever God draws my number.

Tree stump
Living in Florida in the summer, everyone knows about the thunderstorms and rains that come almost on a daily basis. Sometimes it’s sun, rain, sun, rain and sun again, and then it’s really humid. It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity! I llike the thunderstorms and especially the rain, since we are on water restrictions because some morons decided to lower the water level in Lake Okeechobee (our water source) and pollute our estuaries (very damaging to the fish and other lifeforms) and cause a water shortage. On the other hand you shouldn’t be wasting a precious resource such as water.

Broken feeder
The funny thing is that this dead pine tree just decided to fall in the middle of a tropical storm. Oh, and believe me, the media has been hyping this like it’s never happened before. Talk about a slow news day. What’s even funnier is the tropical storm hasn’t really even gotten here yet. We’re just getting the outer bands now. Go figure.

tree top
So now I have to put up a pole to hang my squirrel feeder (the squirrels will not be happy tomorrow!) that was hanging from the tree. No more fun and games for the squirrels on that tree. The tree also hit one of the arms of a bird feeder/plant hanger that my husband put up for me further out and crushed one of the feeders.

So now you know…If a tree falls do you hear it? Well, all depends on how close you are to it. You may not actually hear it fall, but you will know that it is falling.

Well, the pictures are up. The “big storm” is now in full force here. It’s been raining and windy. Now we are feeling the brunt of the storm. Not really bad though. It’s been kind of nice, the windows are open and the “breeze” is great. Even better no A/C!

OK PEOPLE, what WILL it take for you to wake up? What will it take for you to stand up for your rights? This is my blog, my opinion, and my views. I am not forcing them on you, I am trying to get you to wake up and see the light. I’m not asking for you to sacrifice anything other than your selfish, self-righteous ways. I want you to do the research and stop listening to and believing the lies the media is forcing down your throats.

As my friend Adam says, “We need to stand up. Al Gore says that we need a movement in this country akin to the space race movement back in the sixty’s. When Kennedy said that we would put a man on the moon, most people thought he was crazy. But the American people got behind him and we made it happen.

Now we’ve got bigger problems than beating the Russians to the moon. The time for big bold action is here again, and American’s need to take off the food bag, get off the couch and away from the T.V. and start thinking for themselves.”

The only thing wrong now is that we don’t have a leader that we can stand behind as with JFK. We don’t have a leader that cares for the people of this great country. Nor do we have one waiting on the side lines to step in and take over for the moron that has been running this country into the ground for the last eight years. But we can, if we stand together, do something to change all that.

Take a moment and check out these web sites and the people behind them. They seek the REAL truth and have found more than YOU obviously want to know. Look at what Ron Paul has to say, what he believes in and what he could do given the chance. Listen to and read what Alex Jones’ InfoWars and PrisonPlanet have to say.

You don’t have to believe me, but please look for yourselves and give yourself a fighting chance. Don’t take “your world” for granted, because it’s about to be ripped apart. Take stock in your own world and help us take America back to what she once was. A strong America that other countries fear, strive to become like or try to destroy us (because they hate the freedom for which she stands) and above all else, the America where Americans come to believe in the great “American Dream.” The “American Dream” is now a nightmare for those who try to achieve it.

I want the America where people love, live and enjoy being citizens of America, waving the American flag and NOT have to worry about some idiots being offended because they don’t embrace America for everything that she is. Just because you don’t want to salute the flag, then DON’T and don’t make it to where I can’t salute the flag, pray to GOD, celebrate Christmas with a CHRISTMAS TREE. And yes, it IS a CHRISTMAS TREE, NOT a holiday tree. If you don’t want a CHRISTMAS TREE then don’t get one, you don’t want to celebrate Christmas, then don’t, but don’t force me to celebrate my religion, my religious holidays so I don’t offend you or how it suits you. That OFFENDS me.

I want the America where we care what happens to her, her land, the wildlife, the air we breath and our environment and the PEOPLE.

So wake up or flake off…It’s your choice.

Wow! Now I know you people are going to hell in a hand basket. One reply? In this country of over 300,000,000 people and there is only one person that cares enough to stand up and shout, “we’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore.” One person besides myself? God bless you all, you need it.

Do any of you really care what goes on around you? Or are you just so wrapped up in your own little world that you are stupid enough to think, “it won’t happen to me.” I’m too busy thinking about myself to be concerned with the elections, wars, poverty, the homeless, the jobless, the uninsured, the environment, the wildlife, the “so called” oil crisis. As long as it’s not in my backyard. Is this really how you people are? How you think?

Nuclear blast
Wake up PEOPLE, this IS your BACKYARD. America is your home. Get off your butts and do something to save her before the pretend reality that you live in becomes your worst nightmare. The end of America is coming quickly. See this picture? If you wait until a real bomb goes off in America, then it’s too late for you. Don’t ask why did this happen or how could this happen to us. It happened because YOU decided not to do something about it. YOU decided to pass the buck, to let someone else take care of it. If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself with a little help from your friends.

And don’t think for a minute it won’t happen and don’t be surprises that OUR government is the one to drop that bomb. We already know they will. OUR government, well maybe not so much the government, but GWB was behind the World Trade Center bombings. Yes, bombings. Those weren’t real airplanes, so to speak. If you taped the newscasts, go back and watch and look for the 17 second delays, the beeps, the mis-speaks of some of the reporters, the views where the news banners blocked the actual impact and where the nose of the “plane” came through the other side of the building. Compare them to the other station’s newscasts. The truth is there, just look for it. Bombs were placed in the buildings and a missile took out tower two. I will say it again, two 110 story, steel re-enforced buildings do not collapse into their own basement from an impact of an airplane. Don’t believe me, do the research. I want you to check it out and see for yourself.

Three days left for your chance for a FREE button. Isn’t that what everyone wants? Something for nothing? I want to keep America FREE. I want the freedom to call you on your stupidity, your laziness and your self-righteousness. So go ahead ignore the issues, ignore the problems facing America and real Americans today. And ignore me. I can take the money I would have used to send you a FREE button and hey, maybe buy a couple gallons of gas.

Forget the Queen. God Save America…from stupid Americans.

You know what I think? I think this country is going to hell in a hand basket as quick as a blink of an eye. It really sickens me to see how many of you support one or the other “candidates” that we have to choose from. One is a senile old coot that can barely remember his name or what he supports or doesn’t, as it changes minute by minute. And just because he was in the service doesn’t make him presidential material as all you faithful followers think. Least you forget, so was George W. Bush (if you can call his stint as an actual service to this country) and look at what he has accomplished. War, poverty, record profits for BIG OIL, highest unemployment rate, death, mass destruction on our own soil, lies, lies and more lies.

The other “candidate” has become a whipping boy for the current administration/congress/puppet master of the moment, he also doesn’t know what he supports. Change? For whom? It’s definitely not for “we the people” or the US of A. And personally, I don’t think he’ll last very long, some sick idiot-bigot will take him out. And then who will we have? At this point we don’t know. But personally, I pray it’s Hillary Clinton. Yeah, I heard the groans, but I believe she would be a much better leader of this county than what’s in the basket now. At least she has some insight.

Let me say one thing that I’m sure will shock you all. I have never heard either one of them speak a single word. GASP! Have you ever heard the saying, “The best MAN for the job is a WOMAN”? I was for Hillary from the get go. Forget if she’s a Democrat or a Republican, she IS the best candidate for the position of President of the USA at this point in time. Compared to Obama and McCain, give me a break.

This is my blog, my opinion and I approve of and endorse this post! Hey, vote ORPHIEG for President! I will make a difference. I care about this country, the people, the environment, the wildlife. I promise to put an end to big oil, big corporations, unemployment, hungry, homeless and uninsured. Raised taxes? You bet! Raise the taxes on the rich and lower the taxes on the poor. If only…

To all of those that are with me, I propose this. I will send you a button like the one shown for FREE (no S&H fees, either) to the first 100 people to post a comment on this post no later than August 16th, 2008. But only if I get 100 posts. At 99 no button, at 101 no more buttons. Multiple posts by the same person will not count toward 100 button total. I must be able to contact you for mailing instructions (allow 2 to 4 weeks for delivery). You must help keep this movement going by telling your friends, online and offline, everyone, everywhere. America can’t take another 4 to 8 years of self-satisfying, big oil, big business loving morons in office.

What about Ron Paul? He has some good ISSUES. He seems to speak for Americans. That, my friends it what it is all about….IT’S ABOUT THE ISSUES. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s about the issues this country, its leaders and its people need to address. HELLO, get your head out of the sand and stand tall, unite, speak up, yell even, and let your voices be heard. We’re mad as hell and we won’t take it anymore!

Check this out, now McCain says we’re better off under Bush. Click here for this ridiculous story. I really didn’t think that there was a bigger moron and loser than Bush, but McCain sure is catching up!

Seek the truth PEOPLE. There are those that know and are trying to spread the word. Just listen and decide for yourself who to believe. Please don’t listen to the press, the TV news. They are paid by OUR government to steer you astray. Have you seen this video on Fox News Busted? Check it out. Remember with the media, it’s very hard to distinguish the truth from the lies. A government issued report is mostly lies or cover-ups. People that speak the truth are being suppressed by OUR government for speaking the truth. OUR government does not want you to know the real truth, they want you to believe that what they say is the truth. And yes, there are a few, very few in the know, that will help spread that truth, but very quietly.

Listen to what Alex Jones has to say. He is one man that seeks the truth. They’re trying to shut him down in the U.K., because of the TRUTH. Check out his Prison Planet site. He is incredible. PEOPLE seek the real TRUTH, before it’s too late. Do the research before you cast your vote. It could be the biggest mistake of your life.

VOTE FOR NONE OF THE ABOVE Movement has started. Join us now. Save the United States of America NOW. UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL.
