"Everyone can master a Grief but he who has it”

Greed is an incredibly contagious disease 🦠 And, it’s a shame when anyone catches it.

Music Monday: 🎶 introducing the Oud.



This instrument is pronounced “Ood”. I have a quite a few tracks of different performers, and have seen some of a woman who plays an upside Spanish guitar in this style.  She’s wonderful but I can no longer find her tapes.  DM me please if you have info on her.  Use the word “OUD” in the heading, please?  🙏🏼

Three on Thursday:

1. I am so DOWN.  😕

I have self diagnosed and decided that it's the fault of  724 news and horrors show I've been watching in which a country which shall not be named turns into it's own worst enemy.  

So, I'm now staring out my Sanatorium Sanctuary windows with a half-arsed grin on my face, willing the birds of my neighborhood to come eat the seeds, all the while trying to not eat ALL the chocolate in my house!

Ohhhh!  Are those Chocolate Chip?

2.  There is a ZERO chance that I can personally do a single thing to stop the insane Genocide in Palestine from being perpetrated by..... *They Who Should Most Definitely Know Better* than to Do THIS terrible thing to anyone else!  

What the Fracks the MATTER with them??  

3.  Do you all want kittens and puppies?  So do I!  I want a cute little kitten or a puppy to hug and play squeaky toys with.....

My best little knitting buddy

Twin Puppies!

Origins of a name…. Not mine but interesting…

 South German: from the ancient Germanic personal name Haimo a short form of various compound names beginning with haim ‘home’. Jewish (Ashkenazic): from the Yiddish personal name Khayim from Hebrew ḥayim ‘life’. See also Kaim. Norwegian: habitational name from a farmstead named Heim from Old Norse heimr ‘home farmstead settlement’ or in some cases a more recent ornamental formation from heim ‘home’.

It's the end of the world as we know it.

 Stupid Stupid Stupid.....  Might does not make Right.   There's not much else to say about it folks.  We have started it... with the very same cohorts as the Suez Canal, the overthrow of a democracy in Iran and re-instating the So Called Shah.... and a few other minor skirmishes.
