Wednesday's Words for September 17, 2014

We spent a few days this past week, visiting our friends in Pennsylvania. Over the last few years this has become an annual event for us, although we had to miss out last year. We’d been set to go but then the gentleman, who’d retired from one career, had decided to embark upon another. This trip, our daughter accompanied us—the first time for her since she went with us in 2006. We also took Mr. Tuffy, too.

We were grateful to have our daughter on hand as we had never, ever taken a trip with a pet and weren’t sure what to expect.

There were a couple of reasons that Tuffy got to be a traveling dog. First reason, of course, was that after having seen pictures of the little guy, our friend, John, wanted to meet him. And second, we needed to know if traveling with the dog was something we’d be able to do, since it’s our hope to begin taking the coldest two months of our year—January and February—down where the weather is warmer, likely in Texas.

It’s always good when you can get together with old friends. That reunion is sweeter when the time in between is unexpectedly longer. Despite fervent use of the Internet and all forms of modern means of communication, nothing beats being face to face with good friends.

We were happy that our favorite hotel was also one of two pet friendly hotels in the area. We’d booked a two room suite a few months ago. At the time, I did something that I thought was likely pure silliness and a waste of the few dollars extra per night: I arranged for us to have a suite with a fireplace in it.

As it turned out, no silliness at all, as the weather took a bit of a chill while we were there. It was an actual gas fireplace, and worked on a timer – you could choose five minutes to thirty minutes and it threw out quite a nice heat.

We didn’t, this time, indulge in sightseeing. Previous trips found us traveling all over, which I considered as doing research on the area. There’s a rich history in Northeastern Pennsylvania; coal country, the area is dotted with “patch towns”, settlements born of the mining industry that boomed in centuries past, as man sought to extract the anthracite coal from the veins that run so richly there. 

We’ve visited Eckley Miner’s Village, an authentic patch town where the movie, The Molly Maguires was filmed in 1969. We’ve been to Jim Thorpe, and the haunted jail. We got out and read the plaque near the site of the Lattimer Mine Massacre in September of 1897. We also visited the sad site of the former town of Centralia, where an underground fire still burns.

On past visits we’ve toured the Mid-Atlantic Airplane Museum, in Reading, the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, the state’s capital, Steamtown, USA an extensive railway museum, in Scranton, and two mines: The Lackawanna Mine, also in Scranton, and the Number 9 Coal Mine and Museum, in Lansford.

Here I must confess that I did not accompany my beloved and our friend John underground. The only other place where I felt a complete and total inability to accompany him while on vacation was the tour of the engine room on the USS Yorktown at Patriot’s Point Naval Museum in Charleston Harbor.

Wherever we went, our friend provided knowledgeable commentary. We’ve come to know the area, and some of the people there quite well. We could see definite signs of economic recovery since our last visit, and that was a good thing to witness.

And Mr. Tuffy, I am so proud to report, behaved like a true gentleman the entire time. He was well behaved in the car, friendly with the people he met, and very much like us, in that while he enjoyed himself, he was very happy to come home again.

He’s happy to be back to his normal daily routines, like dozing on my computer desk, as I write these words.

Love,
Morgan

Angelic Forecast ~ #315


At a ferocious clip, we slide mere feet above the desert floor, the battleship in hot pursuit. When it gains, I give the mental okay to her, and my jet stops in midair.

The dark-side's triangular craft overshoots our position. Meanwhile, we spear inside an enormous sand dune.

Immediately, the underground city appears on the monitor.


"Oh. My. Gawd." My jaw hangs open. I snap it shut quick. It's true, what Dhuroth has told me about vast underground living areas from the Age of Atlantis. Not that I doubted him.

But seeing is now believing.

What now? I ask myself as my jet slows but buries herself deeper and deeper.  Automatically, the oxygen unit snaps on.

"Uh oh!" I mutter, watching a beam that has originated from the city. It widens and knifes through the sands toward us.

In moments, the beam latches onto my jet's tail. She begins to roll and fight.

"No," I say sharply. "Let them rescue us."

If it is a rescue? But I don't say that aloud. 


TO BE CONTINUED...

ANGELIC FORECAST ~

Worldwide Rebellion... the 'Watch Words' for the final months of 2014.

Now Scotland rises as the freedom fighters heard 'round the world. Massive protest continues to erupt in Spain, and the country will likely split apart into independent regions at some point in the future.

Further, this flares up again: what has been called the Iceland disease -- or throwing out the bankster gangsters and taking back the government. This overthrow of the corrupt financial system will likely explode in the central European countries.

On the AWAKENING front, now it gets 'too' interesting in the human population overall, as the new cosmic frequencies intensify by a hundredfold. Those who are able to handle this superspeed spiritual frequency, and those who can adapt, will do their best to assist others.

However, a type of madness could overtake some, as they will feel like they are floundering and unable to save themselves. Also, spurts of bizarre behavior are likely in day-to-day life, given many will feel as if they are drowning in a storm-raging sea.

Calming them in natural ways, with music, and with herbs used for relaxation will be helpful. Also, at this time, extra nutrition is one key to dealing with these high, high GOOD vibrations.

On the magickal, mystical front, this week the 'Mages of Ages Lost' seek to reveal the wicked underbelly of the Viper-beast system that has ruled over humankind for ages. While these 'revelations' will be mind-blasting, and often soul-shocking, the Mages will be saturating the energetic field with their healing, loving magick.

At this cosmic juncture, prepare to live in a whole new way. Old destructive ways of thought, of insidious programming, is being gradually lifted away. Whenever this 'divine sunlight' breaks through in your life, embrace it, and move forward with a smile.

On the personal front, cleaning everything in sight, or cleaning as the mood strikes you, will likely hit many of us for the next month's time. Not only will this help in preparing your domicile for the winter months, but it is also symbolic of cleaning and clearing out your mental closet. This is all to the GOOD.

Also, this is a fabulous time to rearrange certain aspects of your life. Go full steam ahead toward whatever changes you want to make. If there are blocks, just take a step back, give it some time, then determine how to approach the situation.

As always, keep an eagle's eye on your finances at this time.

Further, the paranormal is likely to become part of your life in new ways, regardless of whether you believe or don't believe... and whether you've had no experiences or many such 'high strangeness' experiences.

On the paranormal front, the time of the Time Travelers is Here... now, more than ever in recent history, time travelers will make themselves known to many of us who embrace studying the supernatural realms of life. Or, those of us with the eyes to see, and the ears to listen.

Now, this will only increase... from a prior forecast: December 8, 2013 ~ Angelic Forecast ~ #275 "...the time travelers now arrive in huge numbers. This could feel like a jerkiness in the way life flows, and will show up on the world stage as near-instant reversals in some policies. This is because alterations are being made that will be beneficial in the long scheme of TIME.

Also, the Time Wars wind down, and several timelines are being joined together for the sake of ALL."

As well, eyes to the sky, keep a watch out for Cloud UFOs.

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Cloaked Cloud Craft UFO’s… What / Who Is In Our Skies…
As a Chemtrail activist I have been videoing the skies over the Antelope Valley, Ca. since mid 2011. Early in 2012, I began noticing strange anomalies in and around bizarre looking cloud formations that just didn’t seem like they belonged in the sky. I soon came to the “insane opinion” these anomalies in and around these clouds resembled triangular craft of various sizes that were emitting some type of cloud like material and interacting with Chemtrail aerosol spraying . The signatures of these craft could be seen but I could not see anything that looked like a solid object, until recently…" ~thetruthdenied.com/news/2014/09/10/cloaked-cloud-craft-ufos-what-who-is-in-our-skies~

On the land changes front, CHANGE is the watchword. Now more Volcanoes awaken, and larger eruptions occur.

HEADLINE: "Incredible Footage Of An Explosive Volcanic Eruption Captured in New Guinea" ~earthweareone.com/incredible-footage-of-an-explosive-volcanic-eruption-captured-in-new-guinea~

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Iceland’s Bardarbunga volcano sulfur fumes now bothering people 800 miles away
While Thyness said the fumes themselves aren’t something that will endanger the public in Norway, the Iceland Review said residents in eastern Iceland have complained about sore throats, stinging eyes and headaches. The news agency said families were told to avoid being outside for long periods of time, particularly children and people with respiratory illnesses. Bjorn Saevar Einarsson, a meteorologist at the Icelandic Met Office, points to a satellite image that clearly shows how far the concentration of sulfur pollution has traveled." ~theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com/2014/09/13/icelands-bardarbunga-volcano-sulfur-fumes-now-bothering-people-800-miles-away~

HEADLINE: "Two Indonesian volcanoes undergo multiple eruptions – evacuations ordered" 

Forecast from two weeks ago: "this week, volcanoes are likely to rule, and Yellowstone National Park will become more magma-dangerous. However, flooding will continue to take center stage in many regions of the planet. Killer temperatures are also on the near horizon for some parts of the world.

Meanwhile, earthquakes, and quake swarms, escalate in number and  intensity worldwide. Also, America's Midwest region will likely shake, rattle, and roll during the next three months.

As the year 2014 ends, superstorm weather hits more frequently. Remember, dare to prepare. Further, CMEs from the sun lash the Earth's atmosphere, causing significant communication glitches."

On the truth front, The Medieval History 'they' Don't Want You to Know ... or the first recorded history of how and when the 'military industrial complex' was begun, then set into motion. Think the Templars, the Vatican, and the Crusades.

BLURB: "New on Dreamland: Joseph Farrell - The Secret Machineries of Our World ~ Thrice-Great Hermitica and the Janus Age. What can that mean? How does it relate to the way power works in our world? Joseph Farrell goes deep into the underworlds of power in this explosive interview. He starts by explaining to us what the Janus Age means, then goes on to describe the all-important structures beneath the surface of our world that make it what it is. Why are we always off balance while a wealthy few seem to get richer and richer on the shoulders of the rest of us? ~unknowncountry.com/dreamland/latest~

Life With Baby Doll: School Supplies

WARNING:  The links contained within this post will take you to sites with content for mature readers only.  However, this post is suitable for a PG audience. 

Andrew and John Website (225x338)
Each year around this time, I purchase Baby Doll school supplies.  Not only do I enjoy hearing his flamboyant voice utter the words, “school supplies,”  but I like seeing his excitement as he opens a gift bag full of vibrantly colored papers and pens.  There is nothing more arousing for a dominant man than to see his campy partner letting the flamboyance rage.
Growing up in rural Arkansas, as the oldest of four children, John’s family suffered financial difficulties. He has told me stories about going to school without even a pencil, only to be ridiculed by his peers. Once at school, all the poor children were singled out as the teacher passed out extra paper and pencils. Of course these were generic supplies, lacking the luster of what the more affluent children had access to.
Even though John has two graduate degrees, he has periodically gone back to college to take additional courses.  This semester, he was approved by his doctor to return on a part-time basis if he desired.  Baby Doll is taking six credit hours of online studies.
On Wednesday of this week, I filled a gift bag with a hot pink binder, several glitter-covered notebooks with matching folders, and a package of purple pens. I also purchased a roll of pink duct tape, rainbow colored note cards, and some pride heart stickers.  The latter was my attempt at providing John with the extras all the ‘cool kids.’ have.  I remember what those children brought to grade school when I attended.
John's School Supplies(300x200)After I finished filling the bag, I left it on his side of the bed. Not long after, I heard his sweet voice saying, “school supplies.”  I walked into the room and he already had everything spread out and was organizing it. I could not resist pulling him into my arms for a tender kiss.  In addition to the school supplies, a student does need a new outfit for the occasion.  I watched as Baby Doll opened the second gift bag, containing a T-shirt with the words, “I Would #Bottom You So Hard.”  John promises he will model the T-shirt for everyone soon.
Baby Doll wore the T-shirt on Thursday while he was doing some course work online.  Since we share a bedroom office, I got little work done that day.  I cannot focus when there is a hot gay twink nearby.
The Life With Baby Doll series is a free weekly MM romance read on my Website that shares my relationship with John Jericho.
To learn more about John and I visit: Life With Baby Doll.  Due to the increasing popularity of the Life With Baby Doll series, I have created the permanent tab on my Website which contains information concerning our intense and passionate love affair as partners.
I enjoy hearing from all of my readers, and look forward to your e-mails. Remember Love is Love…Period.

Out of the Attic with Steam Toys by Destiny Blaine

Steampunk was the topic on deck today at Love Romances Cafe so I dropped by to post a couple of clips from Steam Toys and thought I'd leave one here, too. This novella was originally published in 2010 and Siren Publishing published the second edition in 2012. The scene below takes place in a crowded Las Vegas restaurant. Edward, our hero, is having dinner with his leading lady, but he isn't convinced she's a ghost. 


I hope you enjoy this excerpt.

Steam Toys (MFM)

“They think you’re crazy now, don’t they?” Heidi asked, using her long fingernails to rake breadcrumbs off the blue linen tablecloth.
Edward couldn’t take his eyes off her. In fact, he’d barely heard a word she’d said until the waiter returned. “Is everything all right, Mr. Brady?”
“Yes, fine. Thank you,” he replied, hoping to dismiss the young man right away.
The waiter made a pointed indication at the untouched plate directly across from Edward’s. “Will your guest be joining you later for dinner?”
Edward met her gaze. Heidi shrugged. “Up to you, sugar. I spent my entire life being every man’s dirty little secret. No reason for you to be the exception. As a reminder, no one else can see me.”
“That will be all,” Edward deadpanned, reaching across the table.
The waiter took a moment to stare down at the open space separating the dinner plates. Edward watched Heidi, faintly aware of the man towering over them. “Yes?” he asked, looking up abruptly.
The waiter studied the empty chair across from Edward and then shrugged. He walked away moments later shaking his head and mumbling, “Money and madness go hand in hand in Las Vegas.”
Heidi squeezed his fingers. “You’re a thoughtful fellow, Edward, but trust me. I’ve ruined many a man’s reputation. You’re considered a genius in this town. You don’t want this city to turn its back on you right now. You’re on the verge of something great, and I want to come along for the ride.” She slid her arm under the table and touched his knee. “And I want a lot of rides with you, Edward.”
He was ready to negotiate the terms.
“You do?” Edward asked, engaging himself in what must’ve looked like an odd, one-sided conversation. By the time he realized what he was doing, half the restaurant’s customers were turning around, staring at him with marked curiosity.
Heidi tilted her head toward some of the patrons. “You’re seated at a table for two. You requested a couple of wine glasses. Two meals have been served. This seat is vacant, and you’re holding a hand that doesn’t exist.” She looked down at their entwined fingers. “Your thumb is jerking as if you’re massaging my wrist. You don’t think this is newsworthy for the Las Vegas Lifestyle Magazine?”
“You’re the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen,” Edward admitted. “If I can see you, then they must.”
“No, Edward,” she said, standing.
He stood, too, as a polite gesture.
“I don’t exist in their world. You’re the only one who can see me.”
“Then I’m one lucky guy.”
Heidi held her shoulders back. A quick tilt of her head sent ringlets tumbling across her shoulders. “That depends on who you ask at the moment. In public situations like this, I recommend that you listen and let me do the talking. Some here are ruthless snakes when it comes to tearing down a man’s reputation, especially one like yours. They’ll be anxious to poke fun at the crazy man, the gentleman who inevitably will catch the adoring eyes of their women because of his deep pockets.”
“What’s that mean, exactly?”
“You’re about to make millions, the kind of money this city hasn’t seen since the days of Howard Hughes, and you’re acting as crazy as Hughes himself.”
“I’m not hungry,” he told her, feeling like he’d known her at another point and time in his life. “I want to take you home and—”
“And what, Edward? Get to know me?”
“Yes.”
She took a deep breath. “Oh for heaven’s sake, sit down and finish your meal and then meet me at the curb. As long as you’re looking at me like I’m dessert, there’s no way you’ll enjoy your dinner. Besides, you’re drawing too much attention.”
“I would think someone in your line of work craves center stage,” he pointed out, snapping at her.
Heidi leaned forward. “Careful, Edward, the patrons are staring now.”
“I don’t care,” he said, tossing his napkin aside and following her through the restaurant. “You think I don’t know what this is about?”
“I doubt it,” she answered, never breaking her stride. “If you had any idea what I need from you, I don’t think you’d risk your reputation and follow a ghost out of the hottest dining spot in the city.”
“What do you mean by that? What do you want from me?”

Wednesday's Words for September 10, 2014

This week I am doing something I have never done before. I am writing the first part of these words on Sunday and then the rest of the essay on Tuesday. You’ll soon know why.

I may have already mentioned a time or two that I get not one, but two “horoscopes” delivered to my online inbox each day. Now, you need to know right off the bat, that I consider these as entertainment. I’m not an avid follower of astrology, and I don’t believe much of what I read in them.

One of the fun things I like to do each day is compare these readings, one to the other. Sometimes they are absolutely opposite. Sometimes they are close. One of the readings I get is definitely recycled. By that I mean, the company that sends them has a raft of paragraphs, “insights” that they use over and over again.

Sometimes, I wonder at the thinking behind some of these paragraphs. They are, after all, trying to convince you they can “see” your future so they can sell you stuff. Why then, would they ever tell you, “tomorrow you will receive and unexpected windfall!” Duh. It’s not unexpected anymore, is it? Which means, it likely won’t be received. I think for the issuers of these little scopes that could be considered a self defeating prophesy.

Now, here I am, reading my horoscope on Sunday, and at the end of the week’s run this particular one has a peek into the week head. Mine read:

Morgan, next week on the 9th, the Full Moon in Pisces could be the trigger for some emotional outbursts. If you happen to be on the receiving end, try to maintain your calm and wait for the drama to subside. Of course, it could be you who is letting off steam, so you will want to keep this in mind!

My immediate response was: oh, crap! Because on Tuesday, September 9th I have only one entry on my “calendar”: TV Tech due sometime today.

Yes, the TV tech. For those interested, no, our big-ass TV is not yet working; and wow! Apparently they do work on days other than Friday, because he is, allegedly, coming on Tuesday this time.

That day will be day 45 that our TV has been broken. However, we haven’t been suffering the last few weeks, because when we hit day 28 (or somewhere in and around there) we decided to go to our local Walmart and purchase an inexpensive, 39 inch television. Yes, for the first time ever, the Ashbury’s are a two-television family [the times when kids came back for a few months toting their TVs doesn’t count.]

I need to share with you a few facts about this entire debacle. We purchased the television in 2011 from a National chain store, that is affiliated with another similar chain in the United States. We purchased the extended warranty, because that is our policy, especially with expensive purchases. And this television cost more money than anything we’ve ever bought, except for the house and our cars. The set is a very popular name brand, too.

Speaking to the people at the “tech center” as well as the store (albeit it all of them sounded to be under 30), no one thought that having to wait 45 days was a big deal. Apparently, that’s ok as their replacement policy only kicks in if you’ve been waiting more than 60 days.

You can understand, then, why when I read that horoscope this morning (Sunday), I said, “oh, crap”. Ah the suspense....will the Ashbury television be fixed, finally, on Tuesday, or not?

The punch line:

9:15 am Tuesday September 9th: I received a call from the tech. He wanted to know if I could help him bring the part into the house from his van when he arrived as it was fragile and weighed 30 pounds. Because otherwise he would need to have another tech meet him here, and that might have to be rescheduled. Yes, I pulled the phone away from my ear and looked at it before I put it back to my ear and said, “Sure, I’m game. I’m 60, I’ve had triple by-pass surgery and I’m half crippled with arthritis and walk with a cane. But I will give it my best shot.”

1:15 pm Tuesday September 9th: the tech arrived, and two minutes later a second tech showed up to do the heavy lifting.

2:00 pm, Tuesday September 9th: I waved goodbye to the two techs, our 54 inch big-ass TV now working.

I did ask if this was something I could expect to have happen again in another three years? The answer was that no, the manufacturer had improved the quality of the panel, and this would not happen again.

When they weren’t looking, I knocked on wood. Not very high tech but in my opinion, very effective.

Love,
Morgan

Angelic Forecast ~ #314


On my jet's monitor, I see the circular rim of the portal as it begins to form. "Ready, weapons," I say.

"Attack triangle bearing down on us, port side," my jet reports, even as we speed ever faster.

"Timing is everything," I mutter, as I aim the multi-function laser.


Slam! The laser blasts the portal closed with a starburst of silver-purple light. Using rapid repeated blasts I seal the evil stargate shut.

Created by the dark-side elite from the blood sacrifice of millions, now the portal becomes useless in their war against humankind. One down, and God only knows how many more to go, I say to myself.

My jet flips high like a leaping dolphin, and dives for the ground a split second before the triangle battleship attacks us. My head spins crazily. Yet, as I glance skyward, I see the blue sky light up as if filled with lightning flashes -- exactly where we were.

At a ferocious clip, we slide mere feet above the desert floor, the battleship in hot pursuit. When it gains, I give the mental okay to her, and my jet stops in midair.

The dark-side's triangular craft overshoots our position. Meanwhile, we spear inside an enormous sand dune.

Immediately, the underground city appears on the monitor.

TO BE CONTINUED...
~~~~~~


ANGELIC FORECAST ~

The Big Oil Bamboozle ... is about to be exposed as never before during the next several months. However, history will repeat itself as the Viper elite's oil cartel goes stormtrooper on the 'alternative fuel' renegades.

For, the final battle is on to win independence from THE BEAST, and their ages-long tyrannical rule of Earth. This, as their relentlessly diabolical war on humanity is recognized by many more on the planet.

The result, worldwide *All power to the people* spreads like an unstoppable tsunami. Advice: don't get in the way.

On the energy front, It's a Buck Rogers World, Baby... and you're not invited.

Since 1917, when the major newspapers became controlled by the few at the top, the world has been kept in a virtual state of retardation on the real advancement of energy-tech devices. Currently there are over 5,000 patents that have been suppressed, crushed by the 'dark-side powers that be' over the past decades.

These cheap-energy designs would have created a thriving Jetson/Star Trek/Buck Rogers world by now. We could have been living as Nikola Tesla once envisioned. As many of us believed would be the future, once we grew up.

Instead, because of the Military Industrial Complex -- what President Eisenhower warned the people about -- there is a 'breakaway civilization' that has been conveniently hidden from the public, yet is funded by your tax dollars -- the trillions upon trillions 'lost' by the Pentagon and other gov agencies.

They, those in the breakaway civilization, get to fly among the stars, where none of us are allowed to go.

Blurb from Unknown Country: "Friday September 5, 2014 ~ Catherine Austin Fitts on the Black Budget, and MUCH More! ~ We begin... with famed financial expert Catherine Austin Fitts, who tells us about the vast hidden drain on our wealth caused by the black budget, and how it might be used to finance far more even than the secret programs that it supposedly pays for. What sort of a burden has our government REALLY laid across our shoulders, and what means do the powers that be have of getting our money?" ~unknowncountry.com/dreamland/latest~

On the magickal, mystical front, this week the 'Mages of Ages Lost' slice and dice thrice, as they cosmically dance through the dense gray fogs conjured by the Viper magicians -- a darkness meant to obscure the incoming light of the Divine.

Riding on the whirlwind of time the 'Mages of Ages Lost' also cleanse All Time of the beginning point -- that moment when the dark magicians performed their  blood rituals, loosing the force to do their evil bidding.

On the paranormal front, many have now been born upon Earth who naturally know how and why the magickal forces work. For, it is part of their living spiritual matrix. Out of this, a new generation of natural magic practitioners arises.

While this 'rise' has been happening for the last half century, now a tipping point has been reached on Earth. Thus, there will be an explosion of 'knowing' around all forms of magick, and the magickal arts. This is meant to help humankind seize the reins of power, and create a world worth living in for All.

On the personal front, this week there may be a 'falling away' of certain situations, or people in your life. If this is already something you wanted, then this will be all to the Good. However, if the opposite is true, then seek to know if you should attempt to repair the damage, or simply let go and move on in  peace.

There are also great opportunities to be had this week. They might seem to be small. However, the potential is there to grow these opportunities in significant ways, which will impact the future to your advantage.

Further, it is important to keep yourself balanced emotionally, as best as you are able. At this point, everything is being done by the dark-side establishment to knock the people over like proverbial bowling pins. 

On the AWAKENING front, the warrior spirit of the people rises. As 'we the people' are brutally reined in, our activities severely limited by the ruling regime... now the renegade warriors go extreme. This will happen in several ways, including 'shunning' the system -- and using the wily tactics of the Revolutionary War hero called the Swamp Fox. 

From a previous forecast: "Once again in American history, the unquenchable fighting spirit of the SWAMP FOX, rises. ~ "General Francis Marion *The Swamp Fox* used guerilla war tactics to outwit the British troops during the American Revolution."~

On the land changes front, there will likely be an increase in asteroid flybys, especially as we approach the year, 2015. As stated before, and has been happening, the Great Sun will lash the Earth's atmosphere with more strong CMEs [coronal mass ejections].

HEADLINE: "IMPACT! Meteorite Smashes Into Nicaragua, Leaving ‘Massive Crater’ After Blast!" ~investmentwatchblog.com/impact-meteorite-smashes-into-nicaragua-leaving-massive-crater-after-blast~

The ongoing, dangerous drought in California, and the Western states, will have far-reaching consequences. There are two future possibilities: mass migration or a mass consciousness where the people create enough rain. However, there are damaging earthquakes on the near horizon, but not the so-called big one.

Cold temperatures, and snow, will likely hit unseasonably early. This winter there will be periods of extreme cold. Mostly this will be of short duration with milder temps in between. However, it is wise to prepare for every contingency.

Let the Nazerazzi squad of the North American Union capture her and force her into a FEMA concentration camp.

Life With Baby Doll: Andrew and John Jericho

WARNING:  The links contained within this post will take you to sites with content for mature readers only.  However, this post is suitable for a PG audience. 


Andrew and John Website (225x338)
John and I had some exciting new to share this week.  In April, I announced I had begun the process of a legal name change. Finally, as of September 5th, I am legally Andrew Kyle Jericho. Also, at the DMV in Arkansas, residents can apparently choose their gender without a legal gender change. Elsewhere within the state this is not the case, so I took advantage of the option, and now have M on my license. My next step is to seek legal counsel on obtaining a gender change that will be recognized everywhere.
I will never forget Baby Doll’s response Friday afternoon, after I got off the phone with the circuit clerk’s office.  He put his arms around me and wept.  I am a firm believer that men can cry. While I don’t shed tears very often, I had a few that afternoon.
After forty years, I can finally be recognized everywhere by a name that represents my gender identity.  Others, outside of those who already called me Andrew, have to now by law.  Also, whenever Baby Doll and I are together in public, we are Andrew and John Jericho.
While John and I have always been committed as gay males, it is my desire our state will eventually recognize the partnership we share as a marriage between two men.  My name change also makes the following statement I shared in June all the more significant.  
“As part of LGBTQ Pride Month,  John and I have changed our relationship status on FB from married to in a relationship. Most of you already know I am a gay transgender man. When my partner and I married in 1992, we were only able to do so because all of my documentation listed me as having been assigned female at birth. We are still committed to each other as partners, but now hope to marry as gay men when same-sex marriage becomes legal once again in Arkansas. At that time, we will be seeking legal advice as to the best method of dissolving our old union, perceived by the State of Arkansas, as between a man and a woman.” 
On Thursday afternoon, we went to the court house to pick up my name change order.  Afterwards, our first stop was the DMV.  This week, I will be updating my name change everywhere.  The five percent of people we were not out to, will now know.  I hope their response is a positive one.
Andrew License (300x187)
Later that night, John put his arms around my neck and asked me how it felt to legally be Mr. Andrew Jericho?  I smiled, and brushed my lips across his in a tender kiss. I told him Arkansas finally recognized what I’ve known to be true since the age of five.
The Life With Baby Doll series is a free weekly MM romance read on my Website that shares my relationship with John Jericho.
To learn more about John and I visit: Life With Baby Doll.  Due to the increasing popularity of the Life With Baby Doll series, I have created the permanent tab on my Website that contains information concerning our intense and passionate love affair as partners.
I enjoy hearing from all of my readers, and look forward to your e-mails. Remember Love is Love…Period.

Wednesday's Words for September 3, 2014

The last few days have actually been hot and humid here, but nothing like some of my friends south of the border have been enduring for weeks, now. This year you could almost say we are the frozen north, as we have had a much cooler than normal summer.

This past long weekend found Mr. Ashbury with not just the usual three days off, but four. They had an equipment malfunction at his place of employment late Thursday afternoon, one that would not be repaired before Tuesday morning.

He was glad for the extra time off. While he still loves what he does, he’s looking forward to retirement. He’ll be sixty-two this November. In addition, he has COPD. The latter is the reason we’re looking at heading south for at least a month this coming winter. We’ll try to do two months the year after that. Cold weather is not great for his breathing, because the colder the air, the smaller the oxygen molecules.

But then, neither is the hot and humid weather of a normal summer good for him, either.

This past weekend, since he had four days off, he decided he needed to do something by way of house repairs. Our old, worn out hardwood floor in our entrance hallway finally “sprang”. With the wear and tear, and the humidity over the many years, the nails holding the hardwood in place, over time, rusted out to the point of disintegration, and we had a bouncy little popup near the door that happened about a week ago.

So early Friday morning we headed to the local hardware store where he purchased the aspenite sheeting, the very thin mahogany sheeting to go on top of that, and a box of tiles to finish the job.

My beloved had replaced the kitchen floor a couple of years ago, a vastly larger project, with not that much difficulty. This smaller job was a bit more taxing, not only because of the progression of the COPD, but mostly because it was such a small, awkward space in which to work. Being by the front door, he couldn’t set up his saw and work table in the back yard—that would be too far to carry the heavy wood. So he had to manage it all on the front porch, a cramped work area to be sure.

But over the course of the four days, he prevailed, and we now have a nice tiled floor right inside our front door.

It was interesting, as always, listening to him as he tackled this project. He can sometimes come up with very colorful phrases, especially if things don’t go quite the way he wants them to. This house of ours is old, and nothing is square, or even close to level. Each new job is a challenge for him. But he has more patience than he had in his younger days which just might balance out the lack of stamina.

Of course, there are some things in this house of ours that likely never will be repaired. We have an upstairs that he and our late son created when it was time to replace the roof. Up until then, the upstairs was essentially an attic, but finished to make a bit of a living area – long and narrow and only about five foot high. When we first moved in, two of our kids had their bedroom up there. A few years later, it became our bedroom.

When it came time to do the roof, by adding just a couple of feet to the existing wall, they were able to create a place that in fact doubles our living area. But it still needs gypsum sheeting on the walls, and the flooring there is just sub-floor. But in the summer, with fans in the windows, it was sufficient to hold what was needed to make temporary bedrooms for our grandchildren.

They no longer need to come here overnight, and that area has become mainly storage space. It was originally designed to give us a large master bedroom area, but that just isn’t ever going to happen.

But that’s okay. Having enough room to store the accumulated minutia of four decades worth of marriage cannot be overrated.

Love,
Morgan

SUMMER NIGHTS - The Doms of Sybaris Cove 2


I'm so pleased to announce a new release!! SUMMER NIGHTS is book 2 in my The Doms of Sybaris Cove series!!

You can read more about The Doms of Sybaris Cove on my WEBSITE, but for now, here is a brief overview...

Sybaris...

Founded in 720 BC by Achaean and Troezenian settlers, Sybaris amassed great wealth thanks to its fertile land and busy port. Its inhabitants became famous among the Greeks for their hedonism, feasts, and excesses, to the extent that "sybarite" and "sybaritic" have become bywords for opulent luxury and outrageous pleasure seeking.

The Doms of Sybaris Cove...

In the Gulf of Mexico, southwest of Timbalier Island, is a tropical paradise named Sybaris Cove. The original inhabitants of this island were escaped convicts from various Caribbean islands. They came to the island seeking refuge, but instead found greed and jealousy.

William and Robert Raleigh, brothers who made their fortune running rum and engaging in other illegal activities, hid out on the island in 1945. Taking advantage of the infighting among the natives, they began buying up land and laying down roots, promising the people of the island order and peace.

Instead, they were joined by cousins Agapito and Iago Durante, who were just as corrupt as the Raleigh brothers. The island soon became the private plaything of the Raleighs and Durantes, and the natives their servants. But the natives, who had brought with them a blend of voodoo, Santeria, and dark magic, had their own way of dealing with Robert, William, Agapito, Iago, and their sons.

The sons of both families started a mail order business, making and selling floggers, paddles, and other leather fetish toys. Phoebe's Playthings grew into a multi-million dollar corporation that the Raleigh and Durante ancestors now run from the island.

However, the male ancestors of William, Robert, Agapito, and Iago share more than their thriving business and paradise. If they try to leave the island, they die.

Someone put a curse on them, and no one knows where it originated, or how to break it, but they definitely know it's real...


BLURB for SUMMER NIGHTS:

[Siren Ménage Everlasting: Erotic Consensual BDSM Ménage a Trois Romance, M/F/M, spanking, flogging, paddling, knife play, sex toys, HEA]

Giselle Macey has lusted after Kade Durante and Elliot Raleigh, executives at Phoebe’s Playthings, for most of her life. When she lands a job making custom floggers in their department, she becomes an unwilling pawn in a game of greed and revenge as she learns the chilling truth about her past.

Manufacturing department heads Kade and Elliot are loyal to Phoebe’s Playthings, the company their families built. An ancient curse on the male descendants of both families keeps them on the island, but when they become Doms and lovers to longtime friend Giselle, they couldn’t be happier. They’ve wanted to be more than friends with the energetic, adventurous beauty their entire lives.

But when the company is undermined from within, and the distant cousins are forced to choose between family loyalty, not to mention their jobs, and their newfound love with Giselle, will they lose her forever?

Angelic Forecast ~ #313


I turn away fast, knowing critical mass has been reached on my beloved Earth. The reign of evil will either devastate the population, and the planet, or the people of Earth will rise on their hind legs, and take back their power.

"What is it?" Reth asks from behind me. "My gawd," he utters sounding like a bear.

"If we are to make a difference," I say and stop.

"If we are," he echoes, "then the missions must start now."


***

Invisible to most, I slice through Earth's skies. I'm flying in my pet jet toward the Giza Pyramid. The pyramid's portal is about to be triggered by those who practice the black arts.

Their monster friends who want the planet wiped clean of most humans, are on the other side. They wait to pour through in their battlecraft. For, there is a space territorial war in the heavens above.

I have arrived to even the odds. The allies of the dark side magicians resemble the Klingons of "Star Trek" fame, but have horns sprouting from their cheeks, their chin, and forehead.

Lovely, huh?

On my jet's monitor, I see the circular rim of the portal as it begins to form. "Ready, weapons," I say.

"Attack triangle bearing down on us, port side," my jet reports, even as we speed ever faster.

"Timing is everything," I mutter, as I aim the multi-function laser.

TO BE CONTINUED...

ANGELIC FORECAST ~

BlowUp, then BlowBack, the global cabal targets humanity.
However, in reality, the Viper elite end up targeting themselves at this turnpoint in history. For, the dark-side's underbelly is being exposed beneath the LIGHT of Ascension.

On the AWAKENING front, WE ARE NOT ALONE... We Never Have Been Alone... this mind-bending *Awareness* sweeps across the world as never before, and now goes super nova within the consciousness of humankind.

Also, the "wider world of weirdness" -- quote from George Knapp -- is upon us. For, the dimensional walls are continuing to thin, and new portals open.

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Part 1: USAF Whistleblower Says There Really Is An Underground ET Cloning and Hybridization Lab Near Dulce, New Mexico ~ © 2014 by Linda Moulton Howe ~ August 29, 2014  Dulce, New Mexico - Back in the fall of 1979 when I was Director of Special Projects at the CBS station in Denver, Colorado, my crew and I traveled to Dulce, New Mexico, where rancher Manuel Gomez had several cattle mutilations on his ranch within a single year. All neatly bloodless, but not all trackless. Near one of the mutilated animals in the dusty pasture ground were a series of round indents as if golf balls in two parallel lines had been put next to each other in the dust. Around Dulce, the Jicarilla Apache natives who lived there pointed to the sky and said their ancestors, the “star people,” were the ones doing the animal mutilations. For them, it was a secret they would not talk about on camera. Back then was the first time I heard about the possibility of a large, multi-leveled Dulce underground where grey extraterrestrials did genetic experiments for reasons unknown." ~earthfiles.com/news.php?ID=2230&category=Environment~

On the magickal, mystical front, this week the 'Mages of Ages Lost' project a vision of peace. Or what life 'could' be like if a peaceful but warrior-strong world prevails. Through the power of their ages-old magick, this 'vision' covers the Earth like a soft warm blanket.

Many of us will tune in, and many will not. However, the key is that the psycho Viper magicians cannot obscure this 'message vision'. Nor can their hundred-years-in-advance technology destroy it.

On the personal front, this week, the frantic push-pull vibes happening in the world now, could make you feel crazed and crazy. Remember to take long moments to simply slow down and relax.

Whenever problems come up, and  line up, deal with one at a time in as a calm a manner as possible. Or it will be like whack-a-mole. Also, helping out others when you are able will help you out as well. People helping people at this critical juncture in time will make all the difference. In the long run, that is.

On the paranormal front, UFOs, they're everywhere! ... they're everywhere... 
This is just one HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Major UFO Saucer Sightings- Multiple Witnesses (Video And Photos) ~ CONTRIBUTOR: N. Morgan. ~ There has been a massive influx of UFO sightings in the last several months. Each of these crafts in the sightings are becoming more bold, in their visits. Many wonder if these are our military aircraft or something other worldly. A major UFO sighting captured on daytime video by multiple witnesses, has been sent in to Secureteam for analysis. Large black saucer shaped UFOs are being captured in the skies over the eastern US. Here we have multiple videos from different angles of one of these large saucer shaped craft." ~beforeitsnews.com/beyond-science/2014/08/major-ufo-saucer-sightings-multiple-witnesses-video-and-photos-2447288.html~

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Police confirm UFO over Pennsylvania
Several witnesses, including multiple police officers, saw a strange object over Lower Paxton Township. — Unexplained Mysteries" 

On the land changes front, this week, volcanoes are likely to rule, and Yellowstone National Park will become more magma-dangerous. However, flooding will continue to take center stage in many regions of the planet. Killer temperatures are also on the near horizon for some parts of the world.

Meanwhile, earthquakes, and quake swarms, escalate in number and  intensity worldwide. Also, America's Midwest region will likely shake, rattle, and roll during the next three months.

As the year 2014 ends, superstorm weather hits more frequently. Remember, dare to prepare. Further, CMEs from the sun lash the Earth's atmosphere, causing significant communication glitches.

At this time, the monstrous, salt dome sinkhole in Louisiana -- which continues to worsen by the day -- is about to go super critical. If you're still in the Bayou Corne area, leave as soon as possible.
