National News Agency – Yazegi appeals world to free Maaloula nuns.
Christians in the Middle East are indeed being slaughtered. Beheaded. None have suffered as much as the monks, nuns, and people of faith there.
I have shamefully been silent here on this blog about this matter, but can no longer be. Please, really look into the “rebels vs government” conflicts because many times it isn’t against anyone other than Christian and different religious denominations who are not the Orthodox Islamists that many people have called, from the beginning, “extremists”.
The truth is, the “extremists” are not radical at all but following what their faith dictates as correct and proper worship and retaliation. Mohammad himself taught conversion by the sword and encouraged beheading of “infidels”.
The “infidels” are none other than those who are not of Islamic faith.

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker were really good friends. You can tell this because of the FB photos and comments as well as on Twitter.
Paul Walker’s death: How it all went down — a true speed demon’s final day – MSN Movies News.
I am a huge fan of the “Fast and Furious” franchise and this accident just hits my heart. I have nearly lost loved ones to car wrecks, and several of my friends have perished in car crashes. Still, this makes me sad, and I want to know about the true facts, if possible.
Am doing this now, so thought I would share. What is your blog going to look like for Christmas?

I am genuinely stunned and saddened. No one knows, of course, when they are going to die, and it appears Paul Walker died doing what he loved. My prayer is that he suffered no pain.
Rest in peace, Mr. Walker. There is one less star here on earth, and one more star shining somewhere else.

A new month is beginning. When I look back on November and NaBloPoMo it is with pride, because I technically “won” because I made a post every day. Some of the posts were good; some not so good; and a couple that were downright “bad”, but, I did it. There was a blog post made every day.
In writing a blog post every day, I noticed myself planning for the blog posts and looking for things to write about. When the desk top went down I saw these wonderfully planned posts and articles going down the drain forever. Then, it hit me, Why do they have to be lost? Why can’t they still be posted in the future? What is stopping me from doing any of them later in a different month? Nothing. Nada. Not a thing!
NaBloPoMo has rekindled my desire to write and share what I write with as many people as possible. It has also shown me just how important being creative is, especially to an audience, because the main thing I want to do is entertain. Secondarily is the sharing, because I am human and enjoy contact with other people “out there” somewhere in the world.
Now a new month is beginning. It is one of the most special months out of the entire year to me usually: December. Now begins the true Christmas season. It begins today and ends on January 7th 2014 because we Orthodox Christians have two Christmases! Isn’t that spectacular?! I believe so.
Some shopping was already done before the desk top went down, and then I did a wee bit on my phone. (Using the smart phone was awesome, but I did miss the larger screen where I could see everything much easier.) Now, thanks to the loaner of Kaga, the laptop, more Christmas shopping be done!
And blog posts.
Life is looking up again.
This has actually inspired me to start doing even MORE crafts for Christmas! How many can I get done before the big day?
With as much as you have heard about how much I miss being on-line and shopping especially, you no longer have to read short posts, etc. My dearest friend, Cheyenne, or “Ricyos”, has loaned me his laptop until my desk top

It is taking me a little to get used to the new keyboard and difference in how everything works because the laptop I am using is not a Windows machine, it is a Linux one. This means things are not normally where I would find or put them, but it is something easily overcome. With a computer again I can begin working again on the re-write of the novel and on the handwritten ghost story.
Yes, I know the ghost story could have progressed on its own, but when one story doesn’t move forward it is very difficult to move forward with another. All you can think of is how much farther behind you are getting so that original work on another piece suffers. It does for me at any rate.
Thanksgiving was wonderful for me and the Husband. We ate turkey and pretty much all the trimmings, and rested in general. Resting and relaxing has helped the Husband get his energies up so he can finally kick the crud in the head and be his normal self.
It is very scary when I am doing better in getting over a sickness than him. Usually he is fine within five days, but this has been more like 90 days of sickness for him! I want my honey to feel all better so he can enjoy Christmas shopping and Christmas in general.
Now, on to the ink mine!
It has consisted of funny movies on Netflix and warmed up leftovers. This has been an absolutely perfect date.
