Happy Mother’s Day 2012*

May you cherish the memories you have of your mother

Close to your heart and soul

May you have experienced the love

That only a devoted mother can show

May you have had many hours of laughter

Many hours of joy

May you appreciate the beauty

That only a mother can show

May you be given the honor

In raising children of your own

May you accept the privilege

Of feeling the true embrace of love

Unconditional love from children

Should not be taken lightly

Show respect for the young ones

They will show you some in return

May you be blessed with a magical Mother’s Day.

Four things you can’t recover:

The stone……..after the throw.

Aeroscraft………What is it?………*

Thanks to Kristi for sharing this amazing story……..

> Even though the Aeroscraft dwarfs the largest commercial airliners, it requires less net space on the ground than any plane because it doesn’t need a runway. The airship takes off and lands like a helicopter, straight up and down.
>
> This is not a Blimp. It’s a sort of flying Queen Mary 2 that could change the way you think about air travel. It’s the Aeroscraft, and when it’s completed, it will ferry pampered passengers across continents and oceans as they stroll leisurely about the one-acre cabin or relax in their staterooms.
>
> Unlike its dirigible ancestors, the Aeroscraft is not lighter than air. It’s 14 million cubic feet of helium hoist only two-thirds of the craft’s weight. The rigid and surprisingly aerodynamic body, driven by huge rear-ward propellers, generates enough additional lift to keep the behemoth and its 400-ton payload aloft while cruising.
>
> During takeoff and landing, six turbo-fan jet engines push the ship up or ease its descent. This two-football-fields-long airship is the brainchild of Igor Pasternak, whose privately funded California firm, Worldwide Aeros Corporation, is in the early stages of developing a prototype and expects to have one completed by 2010.
>
> Pasternak says several cruise ship companies have expressed interest in the project, and for good reason – the craft would have a range of several thousand miles, and, with an estimated top speed of 174 mph, could traverse the continental United States in about 18 hours.
>
> During the flight, passengers would view national landmarks just 8,000 feet below, or, if they weren’t captivated by the view, the cavernous interior would easily accommodate such amenities as luxury staterooms, restaurants – – even a casino.
>
> To minimize noise, the aft-mounted propellers will be electric, powered by a renewable source such as hydrogen fuel cells. A sophisticated buoyancy – management system will serve the same purpose as trim on an airplane, allowing for precise adjustments in flight dynamics to compensate for outside conditions and passenger movement.

>
> The automated system will draw outside air into compartments throughout the ship and compress it to manage onboard weight.
>
> (On a pressurized plane, windows like these would explode outward. The Aeroscraft would not fly high enough to need pressurization )
>
> The company envisions a cargo-carrying version that could deliver a store’s worth of merchandise from a centralized distribution center straight to a Wal-Mart parking lot, or, because the helium-filled craft will float, a year’s worth of supplies to an offshore oil rig.
>
> ‘You can land on the snow, you can land on the water, ‘Pasternak says. ‘It’s a new vision of what can be done in the air.’
>
> Aeroscraft
>
> Purpose – Long-range travel for passengers who are more concerned with the journey than the destination..Now this is really neat ! ! !
>
> Dimensions (feet): 165′ H x 244′ W x 647′ L
>
> HUMONGOUS ! !

Beam me up, Scotty….I’m ready…What year is this,anyway?

I believe I will be looking like this cartoon sooner than I’d like to be! That is why I would like to explore the universe and see what is out there. Maybe there is a planet that stops your growth when you land. Maybe there is a planet that makes you ten years younger when you land. Then I guess you can look at the negative side too. Maybe there is a planet that kills you off when you land! I guess I should be happy and satisfied with where I landed currently. I guess when you look at the other options, Earth does not look too shabby, huh? Something to think about. Have fun blogging. I sure am!

The Best Birthday Present Ever…….

My birthday is coming up. My friends and family keep asking me “What do you want?” I wish they would quit asking me that question, that is what I want!!!! I hate people asking me that. I figure if they really knew me as a person who they spend time with, they should know what I like!!!! I mean, am I right????????
The best gift anyone can give me in today’s world, is the gift of their time. If they just spend some quality time with me talking, laughing, crying, or whatever….that would be the best !
I actually go to lunch or breakfast with a friend a day for a couple of weeks…their treat…around my birthday! My birthday is celebrated for more than just one lousy day! I get to spend time , one on one, with a friend and just have fun. We sit and talk for hours!!!! It helps us both get things “ off our chest” and makes us breathe a little easier! I love it!
Of course, if they decide to bring a special little gift along for me….I won’t say no. I give them a big hug, a smile, and a big thank you! My birthdays are the best! So, remember the greatest gift you can give a person is “ THE GIFT OF YOUR TIME.” It does not cost you anything. The payback is the best!

Gimme Some Lovin’….or Sex?????

Sex and Love are two different things. Sex does not become love until you invest some time and emotions in a relationship. Anyone can go out tonight and have sex. Don’t think if you go out tonight, find someone, and have sex, that you are in a love relationship.
You can not seriously believe that you are so deeply attached to this person that you can actually “ Love” them. You may be attracted to a lot of their physical features that you find attractive and love. You may be attracted to some emotional qualities this person has, but that is what you love about them. You may be thinking the person thinks a lot like you do about a lot of things. That is because you were both raised with the same morals and beliefs. Do not mistake sexual desire with love. If you are just looking to satisfy your sex drive, DO NOT GET EMOTIONALLY ATTACHED. If you feel this is a person you would like to spend the rest of your life with….WHAT’S THE RUSH????
All I am saying is…Take things slow if you are looking for love. In my opinion, it takes time, patience, and humor. I believe if you look honestly into why you want to have sex, you will make the right decision….In my book, it’s sex with love. That takes nurturing. That takes time……
