In Love and War

I think this vampire Santa cartoon is funny today and am cross-posting it. Shows like Vampire Diaries and Twilight have pushed the Vampire definition too far. Remember fear of daylight, before magic rings?

The other day I got a mean comment from a lady who was sad about a break up, on my Spark-page. My finger slipped and I said I "liked" that she broke up with her husband. I know some people who have been pretty happy about getting the strength to leave a bad relationship. Ever watch the Chapel show episode where girls at hip hop clubs have "newly single" parties with all their friends, yelling with whistles and kazoo noise makers about their latest breakup? The parents of OJ Simpson's wife would have been far more happy if she had broken up with her husband, compared to what did happen to her. You can't always take for granted that divorce is an "unhappy" thing for people, and they automatically are angry about it. People are going to have strange opinions about things posted on the internet. I have had many people yell at me for controversial things I have said, it is part of Internet activity.

On a happier note, here is a trivia fact I did not know. My uncle in Hollywood knows and has photos with this guy:

"Which renowned American film director, producer and screenwriter is the uncle to actor Nicolas Cage?

Your answer: Francis Ford Coppola

Born in 1939, Coppola was the brother to actress, Talia Shire ("Rocky" 1976) and August Coppola, the father of Nicolas Cage, whose birth name was Nicolas Kim Cappola. Beginning his career in 1963, Francis Ford Coppola was best known for his trilogies of "The Godfather" (1972), the 1974, "Part II" sequel, and the final chapter of "The Godfather Part III"

"The Canterbury Tales" is Geoffrey Chaucer's most well known work, which consists of an amalgamate collection of stories told by a diverse group of pilgrims who are on a pilgrimage to Canterbury. Both the "Parliament of Fowls" and "Troilus and Criseyde" are also written by Geoffrey Chaucer, but "Confessio Amantis" was written by Chaucer's contemporary, John Gower." -This quote is in honor of my mother visiting my brother this week.

P.S. Just because I know a friends and relatives in the Army does not mean I LIKE the US military, or the human soul free crap that runs the U.S. military. I very much so hated 9-11 and the fools that helped it happen. I have hated every second I ever spent on a military base. Completely hated it to the depths of my soul. My mother is going to watch my brother retire from the military this week. I refuse to go with her on this government rear-kissing pilgrimage, I feel the government should not look for fights we do not belong in. The idea that being policeman to the world is a great way to spend United States taxes is a sickness which should be protested.

    The cartoon is a hoot! And prolly more true that the politically entrenched would admit to!
I understand about your feeling vis a vis military conflicts. It is a shame that a small group of people seem to have caused so much damage to our National psyche. I geuss, for me, the question isn't whether we "should" be the Policemen to the World, but rather, since we are; just how do we do our job? No easy answers for sure!

    Many did not! My mom (who was born in 1913) tells me they took turpentine for somethings- imagine swallowing turpentine! it would eat your flesh all the way down! I know some things worked, like mustard poltis (however it is spelled). I thank God for all the more modern things today. Of course in 50 years someone will be saying... can you imagine how insane these people were for taking that!
Thus innovation continues :)
