Happy Ron’s morning

Filed under: Animals, Homosexual, Love, My Life and Rants, People I like — Scottie @ 11:31

We do not celebrate mother’s day here.   However I woke up feeling OK this morning and Ron was not too tired from working all night.  So we agreed to a morning plan.  He would stop at the store on the way home and get some eggs, bread, a ham steak, and some hash browns.  I started bacon and sausage.   When Ron got home I cooked us breakfast.   We have not had a breakfast together in months and have not had bacon in about five months.  I have not been interested in eggs so Ron would just make himself a small breakfast.   He was so happy.  He called it his mothers day gift.   I told him I would clean up later as the Sunday news shows were coming on, and I love the news.  But he went ahead and picked it all up and did the dishes and ran the dishwasher.   I love the glass top stove but it is a bitch to keep clean and streak free.  At some point one of us used the scrub pad on it ( unthinking ) and left little scratches in the glass.  All in all a grand breakfast of all the major food groups with a dessert of news.  Ron has gone off to bed as he works tonight.   I am in my office watching the news with both cats snoozing after they had a hand full of treaties each.   All is well in our home.   Hugs

While this man is not my first choice for President, I can totally support him.  I know as a preteen realizing the attractions I had for boys made me a target and “bad” ( at age five my 10 year old sister informed that because guys used me for sex I was queer, something I had no choice about but she told me how bad it was, and so I was bad ) seeing him on TV doing what he is doing would have changed my own opinion of myself.  Back then I had no good role models and was constantly told of all the evils and horrors queers were.   In fact years later as an adult after two tours in the US military I told my adoptive father I was gay.  He recoiled and said I will have to take care of you for the rest of your life because no one will hire you.  This was 1987.  He then went out and bought a grave plot in a local cemetery for me.  He wouldn’t talk to or look at any male friend I might have in his presence.  Of course he still called black people niggers all his life.  Sad hugs

A Trio of Bald Eagles, Included Two Dads, Is Successfully Raising Three Eaglets

A Trio of Bald Eagles, Included Two Dads, Is Successfully Raising Three Eaglets

 

How many times have conservative Christians complained about a child being raised by same-sex couples? How many times have they freaked out about the possibility of adoption by more than two parents? It’s unnatural! It’s bad for the child! WHAT WOULD JESUS THINK?!

Well, they’re going to hate this story about baby eaglets at the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife Refuge in Illinois being taken care of by three parents… and then, after the mother (Hope) died, by two male bald eagles (Valor I and Valor II) who appear to be parenting together for the sake of the kids.

What’s weird is that bald eagles usually move on to a new mate when they lose their current one, so the expectation would’ve been for these two male eagles to find new partners immediately. And yet they stayed together to take care of their eaglets. Having that “extra” parent has been a boost for them.

Now there’s a new female eagle in the sanctuary and all three are bonding well.

It’s the Christian Right’s worst nightmare.

I am off to make a tomato red sauce for my hubby.  He has worked a lot of 12 hour shifts lately and he has not complained but I know it is hard for him.   On my way home from my shots I stopped at the Publix grocery store ( great people ) and picked up all I needed to make hubby a grand meal when he wakes up.  

I make my sauce with a base of Dei Fratelli tomato sauce as I find them the most tasty.  Then I add cut mild sausage ( I get the long links and slice them into small sections as Ron likes the taste to bite into them ) and we went back to very lean beef ( was trying to not use beef but can not find anything we like as much ) and then add minced garlic, oregano , sweet basil, rubbed sage, thyme, peppers ( I use a mix of green , yellow, and red ) diced celery, and a small bit of chopped onion ( I don’t really like the taste of onion but in a sauce it adds a good flavor ) and after the sauce is hot and simmering I add some organic meat balls Ron likes.   People have different takes on meatballs , some think they should be baked and then added , I feel they should be put in the sauce to take on the flavor.  I also got two kinds of “toasted bread” for the supper, one garlic and one three cheese.  I may have forgotten a few things I add or do but you get the idea.  Sauce shouldn’t ever come out the same if you make it often.  I feel it should be adaptable and change with your feelings / mood.  To me my cooking is an extension of myself and reflects how I am feeling at that time.  Lucky for me Ron loves my cooking.  ( also my extension of my self ?  )  Hugs

Recently Ron went to the stone place near us and got 25 bags of marble chip and filled the planter.  A friend of ours had painted up a bunch of yard statues for us.   This weekend Ron got some new plants for the side garden, and planted them.  Here are the pictures and two very short videos.   Hugs

Bobby Goldsboro – Honey

Filed under: Love, Music and Videos, Music Video, News, Song, Songs and Music — Scottie @ 05:18

BOBBY GOLDSBORO
“Honey”
(Bobby Russel)

See the tree, how big it’s grown
But friend it hasn’t been too long
It wasn’t big
I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it, was just a twig
Then the first snow came
And she ran out to brush the snow away
So it wouldn’t die
Came runnin’ in all excited
Slipped and almost hurt herself
And I laughed till I cried
She was always young at heart
Kinda dumb and kinda smart and I loved her so
And I surprised her with a puppy
Kept me up all Christmas Eve two years ago
And it would sure embarrass her
When I came in from workin’ late
‘Cause I would know
That she’d been sittin’ there and cryin’
Over some sad and silly late, late show

And honey, I miss you
And I’m bein’ good
And I’d love to be with you
If only I could

She wrecked the car and she was sad
And so afraid that I’d be mad
But what the heck
Though I pretended hard to be
Guess you could say she saw through me
And hugged my neck
I came home unexpectedly
And caught her cryin’ needlessly
In the middle of the day
And it was in the early Spring
When flowers bloom and robins sing
She went away

And honey, I miss you
And I’m bein’ good
And I’d love to be with you
If only I could

One day while I was not at home
While she was there and all alone
The angels came
Now all I have is memories of Honey
And I wake up nights and call her name
Now my life’s an empty stage
Where Honey lived and Honey played
And love grew up
And a small cloud passes overhead
And cries down on the flower bed
That Honey loved

And see the tree how big it’s grown
But friend it hasn’t been too long
It wasn’t big
And I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it, was just a twig

Ruben James = Kenny Rogers = Greatest Hits

Filed under: Love, Music and Videos, Song, Songs and Music — Scottie @ 07:24

Missed one yesterday, here is the replacement.

 

“Reuben James”

Reuben James
In my song you live again
And the phrases that I rhyme
Are just the footsteps out of time
From the time when I knew you, Reuben James
Reuben James
All the folks around Madison County cussed your name
Just a no-account, sharecropping colored man
Who would steal anything he can
And everybody laid the blame on Reuben James

Reuben James
For you still walk the furrowed fields of my mind
The faded shirt, the weathered brow
The calloused hands upon the plow
I loved you then and I love you now
Reuben James

Flora Grey
The gossip of Madison County died with child
And although your skin was black
You were the one that didn’t turn your back
On the hungry white child with no name
Reuben James

Reuben James
With your mind on my soul and a Bible in your right hand
You said, “Turn the other cheek. Well there’s a better world a-waiting for the meek”
In my mind these words remain from Reuben James

Reuben James
For you still walk the furrowed fields of my mind
The faded shirt, the weathered brow
The calloused hands upon the plow
I loved you then and I love you now
Reuben James

Reuben James
One dark, cloudy day they brought you from the field
Until your lonely pine box came
Just a preacher and me in the rain
Just to sing one last refrain for Reuben James

Reuben James
For you still walk the furrowed fields of my mind
The faded shirt, the weathered brow
The calloused hands upon the plow
I loved you then and I love you now
Reuben James

Reuben James
For you still walk the furrowed fields of my mind
The faded shirt, the weathered brow
The calloused hands upon the plow
I loved you then and I love you now
Reuben James

Billy Joel – She’s Always a Woman (Audio)

Filed under: Love, Music and Videos, Song, Songs and Music — Scottie @ 07:19

 

She can kill with a smile, she can wound with her eyes
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
And she only reveals what she wants you to see

She hides like a child but she’s always a woman to me

She can lead you to love, she can take you or leave you
She can ask for the truth but she’ll never believe you
And she’ll take what you give her as long as it’s free
Yeah she steals like a thief but she’s always a woman to me

Oh, she takes care of herself, she can wait if she wants
She’s ahead of her time
Oh, and she never gives out and she never gives in
She just changes her mind

And she’ll promise you more than the Garden of Eden
Then she’ll carelessly cut you and laugh while you’re bleeding

But she’ll bring out the best and the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself cause she’s always a woman to me

Mmm
Mmm

Oh, she takes care of herself, she can wait if she wants
She’s ahead of her time
Oh, and she never gives out and she never gives in
She just changes her mind

She is frequently kind and she’s suddenly cruel
She can do as she pleases, she’s nobody’s fool
But she can’t be convicted, she’s earned her degree
And the most she will do is throw shadows at you
But she’s always a woman to me

Mmm
Mmm

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – Dance Little Jean

Filed under: Children, Family, Love, Song, Songs and Music, Things I like — Scottie @ 07:24

 

Dance Little Jean
I played a wedding for the money,
And I wished that I could tell the bride and groom
Just what I thought of marriage
And what’s in store after their honeymoon.
And I was grumblin’ to the dancers
‘Bout how men and women ought to live apart
And how a promise never made can not be broken
And can never break your heart
When suddenly from out of nowhere,
A little girl came dancing ‘cross the floor,
And all her crinolines were billowing
Beneath the skirt of calico that she wore.
Oh what a joy fell on the honored guests
As each of them was drawn inside her dream,
And they laughed and clapped and stomped their feet
And hollered at her “dance little jean”
Dance, little jean, this day is for you,
Two people you love, stood up and said “I do”
Dance little jean, the prayer that you had
Was answered today
Your mama’s marrying your dad
Well, my cynical heart just melted
‘Cause I knew what this get together meant
How it ended year of tears and sad confusion
That the little girl had spent.
Well they told the band to pack it up
About the time the couple cut the cake,
But we played as long as they stayed
For love and laughs and little jeanie’s sake.
Dance, little jean, this day is for you,
Two people you love, stood up and said “I do”
Dance little jean, the prayer that you had
Was answered today
Your mama’s marrying your dad

STUDY: Children Of Gay Couples Do Better In School

The Washington Post reports:

Children of same-sex couples perform better in school than kids raised by a mom and a dad, according to new research from several European economists. The researchers found that children raised by same-sex couples had higher test scores in elementary and secondary school and were about 7 percent more likely to graduate from high school than children raised by different-sex couples.
