I had a draft Allagash with dinner at the Manhattan Beach Kettle just to “not be judgmental” of people who like wine and beer. It is a safe driving distance from my house, and ‘from Maine.’
I’m just sensitive because my husband left me, unwilling to implicate his mom (now in heaven), and so blamed me instead. I couldn’t possibly understand why he turned so hateful, but he first attached to “see the world;” and after Kenya, Guam, and Palau, decided he preferred Orange County, erupted like lava, and unleashed venom from the deep.
Some people have intrusive igneous sills in their psyches, slow magma cooled over time till hardened.
If I’m not driving at a fancy occasion, I’ll order Chardonnay if I can pronounce it correctly, because beer isn’t ladylike. My colleague told me “a woman drinking beer from a bottle is sexier than from a glass,” which I could not have fathomed had he not confessed it.
An interview with conservation advocate Steve Irwin’s assistant surfaced today, and was pretty interesting: after he described the bull sting ray attack (which possibly thought Steve’s shadow was a predator tiger shark’s), the photographer said, trying to coach him to hang on for his family,
“He sort of calmly looked up at me and said, ‘I’m dying,’ and that was the last thing he said.” It’s as if he ‘seemed OK with it,’ & had worked through his peace with God and knew he took risks all the time.
When I was pondering this today, I grasped this is how the Lord wants me to live, too: “Don’t be afraid.” I am like him, and also like Jim Cantore, but without the First Class trips, which I don’t need because I have a ‘k.a.’ home.
This topic makes me sad, as I am really sympathetic of people who feel strapped in their addictions, and even in recovery from alcohol, meds., drugs, and other habits; as legalism is not how we are designed to live. I have a slim friend who feels she can’t indulge in great food because of how it controlled her before losing weight.
My family never had alcohol or drug dependence, but there is certainly human crazy-ness lurking through.
Via in-laws, I understand AA 12-steps, ACA patterns, and “A Merry-Go-Round Named Denial,” “the elephant in the living room.”
It is not God’s design for us to be single, but it may be better than being married to alcohol and drug addiction-and-denial, which are avenues for evil spiritual strongholds to invade the home, and bring darkness. People think, “The grass is always greener on the other side” of the pasture, but maybe you are happier and freer without someone else’s slavery and bondage.
Note: In the weather-world-online-media, there are a lot of references to wine and photos with drinks, even the Weather Channel ‘anchor desk’ urging people to “drink wine and eat brownies” to get through storms. I wonder if that is why they can’t always get directions.
(Note: The rotating pie case is a METAPHOR for ‘not-going-anywhere-but-a-circle,’ ‘a merry-go-round named denial.’ I am not trying to advertise pie!)
We live in a “snarking” age, ‘snide remarks’ on the internet; and I try in my satire not to be mean, just to make fun of what is obviously not right (especially if people deliberately reject what is true, and try to cover it up).
Psalm 1:1-3, the basic “recipe to be happy and prosperous,” instructs us to not “sit in the seat of scoffers,” to not sit down and soak in the scorns of people who mock God and mock truth.
Yet in Psalm 2:4 NIV version, “The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them” (and then He rebukes them in anger). So God can initiate scorning when it is deserved.
“Derision” means to de-ride, as if those who’ve wronged the Lord are pushed out of the raft ride into the water,
have to swim on their own, and are no longer having fun, but must swim hard the rest of the way for survival.
They chose it by not listening to the Lord, who speaks to everyone’s conscience.
It is not I who am righteous, but abide in His.
My sister also worked as a whitewater raft guide on the South Fork of the American River for 6 summers; and she and my brother canoed with a group from Montreal to Duluth commemorating Les Voyageurs Français.
(Guess why photos are water-damaged?)
During High pressure, the larger overall air mass comes to us from the desert, circulating clockwise (anticyclone). NE winds come overnight and may blow out to the ocean (land breeze). On >99% of sunny days, the city and land heat up, warm air rises, and W, SW, NW sea breezes come in faster in the afternoon than E/NE land breezes, like yesterday and Saturday (see records and reference links below).
Government meteorologists (National Weather Service Oxnard) describe air movement overall as ‘trending gradients’ from sea-to-land or land-to-sea (onshore/offshore movement), and this is where their confusion has proliferated through the TV forecaster population and public.
They are not here, do not look up at the sky, see flags and trees moving, and realize just how wrong it is to call sea breezes, “offshore flow.” People hear this as “ocean flow,” “winds from offshore,” which does not explain how dry it is.
During heat episodes, the overall air mass should be called “Desert air,” or NE winds “Desert winds,” so people could understand how dry our bodies are, pay attention and remember water to drink water: “It’s about health, education, welfare!” “We hold these truths to be self-evident…that people have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness!”
I politely told CBS2 & 9 Josh Rubenstein, and in the past have written to Jackie Johnson and all the miscellaneous weather TV people, that inland Lancaster-Palmdale, etc., do not actually have a “shore;” and if L.A.’s beach is getting West winds, “offshore flow” is not correct.
The night and early-morning weathercasters see “night land breezes,” and over-generalize weather as “offshore flow,” go home and sleep, and can’t really grasp that from “our” point of view in L.A. Basin, Orange County more than half the time, Beach Cities, Pasadena, etc., get sea breezes, stronger West winds (+SW, NW) than NE/E.
Look at Torrance Airport records (open during the day), showing our daytime experience:
It is no use getting furious over their lies (calling West winds ‘East winds’ 1000 x 1000), especially NBCLA when they claim, “IT’S ABOUT THE TRUTH,” “WE’VE GOT YOUR BACK,” “INVESTIGATIVE TEAM;”
as when I wrote to Fritz Coleman for 2 months almost every day in summer 2007 to try to get his attention, in loving fun, he lied to a police detective, said I was “going to several of his public appearances,” “had been bothering him for several years” (obviously someone else, or his imagination), and when he did see me at Knott’s that Christmas, he didn’t recognize me and started conversation in an outgoing way, calling me over to try to give me his celebrity photograph. It was surreal.
Then he tried to send me to jail for trying to write other NBC employees about West winds at 5 p.m., 6 p.m., & 11 p.m. when they were showing “Northeast winds”/”offshore flow” with a large map. I “liked” them, but they forbid it, as if admiration and friendliness are crimes to be squashed and stomped on with large boots. (I am not making this up: they called my friendliness “misdemeanors,” and I was threatened in court with jail if I tried to write them for 1 year!) I had to go to court 9 times in all, but it was like dealing with wealthy, Nazi psychosis, and a legal system that supports ‘money’: you’re guilty if they said so.
I finally gave up and just agreed legally that I would not try to write them so the case would be “Dismissed” (which it was), but suddenly there were headlines that I was “convicted” and “stalking,”* but there was no trial or evidence of it at all. I was just trying to make them laugh, but they couldn’t get it, like East and West in L.A.
I work with dyslexic students, and could see that anyone who calls West winds “East winds” and thought I’m a criminal has severe brain-switching confusion, so was trying to help by writing the others, and help them see the humor in it all.
The Lord of heaven sees everything, Psalm 2:4, Psalm 1.
No one from NBC will dare say anything contrary to their man, covering for each other like sick alcoholics. If any knows East from West, he dare not speak up as it breaks their code of silence: they could lose their jobs.
Jay at least owns up to his dyslexia.
*(I can’t remember exactly but in 2007-8, I may have written in kindness that I wished I could send them each a Christmas stocking, and it was in the papers that I was “STALKING.”)
People who complain about water should not be on TV to model whining for the wider population: it’s part of their celebrity sickness.
Criticizing clouds is even worse, rampant among weather-people and news anchors alike. It’s ignorance about life, earth, food, reality. It’s part of their narcissism.
