Cesar Milan - Leader of the Pack

I just love to listen to Cesar Milan and his theories and technics on training humans and rehabilitating dogs.  I ran across this interview where by Cesar tells how he developed his talent, his successes while learning from his failures; applying what he learned and how he built a solid business from a talent accquired as a young man in Mexico.  

Cesar has an excellent understanding of Pack Dynamics and he has learned how to apply much of the principles to growing his business.  I really feel there is something for everyone to gain from listening to this uplifting interviewing.

After the video besure to visit his Web page:

Children - What Are They Reading?

How do you feel about what your young adults might be reading? Do you feel they can be influenced by some of the darker side of so called literature? Or, do you feel that you're glad if they pick up a book at all. Do you worry that they might be getting too much fiction packed with sexuality, profanity or vividly, grotesque, morbid details; you should be.

When I was a young adult, we read about people who painted positive, honorable, challenging adventurous tales such as Treasure Island, Moby Dick or Nancy Drew Mysteries; also, baseball heroes, men and women who accomplished great things, stories that presented values instead of glorifying sex, murder and violence or terrorizing the reader or destroying their self-confidence.

Meghan C Gurdon, Children's Book Reviewer gives an in-depth analysis of what young kids are reading today, not just on their own but what many highly respectable people or industries are pushing, calling it literature. Meghan mentions that some educators believe that we don't need guidelines when it comes to what is read by children - young minds are not in the need of a gatekeeper. Meghan mentions in her article about young adult book author Lauren Myracle, hailed as a person "on the front lines in the fight for freedom of expression" who has made it clear that she doesn't believe there should be any line between adult literature and literature for young people. I would have to agree with Meghan that Myracle's interpretation of young people not needing a gatekeeper is a bit radical: Myracle believes "...young people should encounter material that jolts them out of their comfort zone; that the world is a tough place; and that there's no point shielding children from reality."

Where do we draw the line as to how much "jolting" our children need, especially by those who may or may not be qualified to teach values to our kids. Please read the article in its entirety by clicking on the link below.

If you are feed up with our education system as most of us are then you will want to be informed about another possible disaster on the horizon: Common Core. Common Core comes from Obama's education department; it objective is to get all states and schools to adopt national education standards for each grade level that will dictate what your child will learn or won't learn. Once again, the federal government wants to control at the local and state level.

It doesn't stop at the public level. Its hope is to control the curriculum of charter schools, private, religious (including Catholic schools) and homeschooling.

For more about Common Core, check out Phyllis Schlafly's report at Eagle Forum.

I don't know about you, but when it comes to nutrition, I am always wanting to know more. I am a "senior" and we will leave it at that. Lately, each morning has been a challenge. I seem to have more aches and pains and my body is not really up-to-par until I get all the kinks out, which usually is a few hours later. Well, I started to do my own research on what helps with stiffness, joint pain, and what just might generally be helpful but more natural to use. I came across an interesting article: "The potential, do-it-yourself treatment for Alzheimer's you can get at your local pharmacy" by Jonathan V. Wright, M.D. Even though I wasn't looking for a cure or any help with Alzheimer's, Dr. Wright's information lead me to what I was searching for, joint pain relief

Niacinamide (also known as nicotinamide of the vitamin B3) family can help with joint pain. This is a relatively inexpensive food source. I have only started this journey but I am hoping, if research is as indicate, I will find relief in niacinamide. So this is not an endorsement but a "sharing" of discovered information that I thought was important to blog about.

Please got to Dr. Wright's web site and check his research via his newsletters. It will only cost you time and may well put you on a path that provides helpful information for your nutritional needs.

Let us not forget our Veterans during this Memorial Day weekend: A salute to America's United States Armed Forces and all who served and are serving!

Why can't we have more truthful people in the White house? Why do men become easily corrupt? Where are today's honest men and women? Does it take a judge to say what most of us feel? Judge Jeanie Pirro has stated it perfectly when it comes to Obama. Please take a moment and listen to her speak.

I would love to see the faces on the men who served at the first Continental Congress if they could return to see the lawlessness, ignorance or stupidity, unreliable, unmoral, egotistical words and actions coming out of Congress and Washington D.C. today. Faces of men like Patrick Henry, Samuel Adams, George Washington, or Thomas Paine who laid the foundation which allows us to have the freedom of speech Judge Jeanine enjoyed utilizing. Or what Ben Franklin might write today about the Obama Administration if he could ease drop in on Obama, Biden, Clinton or, Attorney General Eric Holder - those who never seem to give a direct answer but who are so good at "dodging" the truth. Do you think old Ben wouldn't use his creative juices as he did in 1774 when he wrote his delicious satirical letter to Britain's Prime Minister suggesting the British impose martial law on the colonies and appoint a king over all of North America?

My photo
Utah, United States
I am a retired grandmother who lost her husband of 42 years in 2010, to cancer. I relocated from Ventura, CA to a community near Salt Lake City, Utah to be with my son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters. I am a believer in Jesus our Lord and in the true Sabbath as our worship day. I am learning more and more about what our role is here on Earth as well as what it will be when Yahshua returns. I love crochet, watercolors, and writing. My newest passion is writing poetry. I would love to hear from others who enjoy these crafts; come visit and share your interests.



JULY 4 - Time For Tea

The American people came out on July 4 to protest high taxes and run-a-way government spending. From 11:00 till 2:00 p.m., citizens of Ventura, CA came out to show their support for less taxes and less government interference. As a spectator and one who attended the first Ventura Tea Party, I would say we doubled the turnout of patriots.

All across the country the signs, flags and banners that were carried at the tea parties showed the position that the American people are taking toward its government. They are mad and they are not going to take it anymore!
