Q Letter

Hub and I eat a lot of Quaker oatmeal.

We stir a lot more oatmeal than we eat. Let me explain.

A couple years into our relationship, after we decided to get married, Hub bought an audio tape series called, “How to Have a Successful Marriage”. The lessons were all cleverly titled with words beginning with “C”, like Communication, Conflict and Chores.

The analogy used by the series narrator in the Chores lesson was “stirring the oatmeal.” Oatmeal symbolized life’s necessities, and stirring was the work we must do to provide our household’s necessities. Stirring can be done by the same individual every time, by both individuals together, or on some kind of rotating basis. But it must be done.

Couples with successful relationships figure out – together – which method works for them for each chore in their relationship.

IN AN AQUARIUS WANING WITCHCRAFT MOON IS A GOOD TIME TO WORK ON THAT STUBBORNNESS THAT KEEPS ONE BLOCKED OUT OF ADVANCING TO NEW AND FRESH IDEAS

AND SPEAKING OF IDEAS AND ALSO PROJECTS THAT DIDN’T QUITE WORK OUT, TIME TO SCRAP THEM, FACE THE FACT THAT THE IDEA WASN’T SO GOOD PERHAPS EVEN RISKY OR CRAZY AND JUST START THINKING OF IMPLEMENTING A NEW IDEA OR PROJECT

HAVE SOMEONE NAGGING ON YOU? Well, the time will soon arrive to work on that, being sarcastic? or difiant? You’ll have to make the decision on how far you want to take that down the path of banish, you could banish the nagging from the person or banish the person who’s nagging!

The plants that are used is Fennel, Buttercup and Rosemary and according to your method they can be brewed into a hot tea, burned incense or a carry along charm

Drinking a cup of hot brewed rosemary will soothe the nerves

Lighting Candles of Violet or Yellow and remember to let those Candles burn themselves out to complete your Spell

And last but never least, the Waning Moon enters Aquarius on Tuesday 22 April 2014 @ 12:18am and will begin to travel out of Aquarius on Wednesday 23 April 12:10pm

And the best spells are the ones that come from your heart, your mind and your soul, you know what you desire just put it to words and write it down

Cleft phlox (Phlox bifida)

Originally posted on Ozarks State of Mind:

A herbaceous perennial tolerant of drought and poor soils, it is also known as Sand Phlox. Occurring in less than a dozen states, it is native to the Midwestern United States, the Ozarks, and the cedar glades of Kentucky and Tennessee. Blooming as early as March, it continues to bloom into May. Preferring full sun to partial shade, Cleft phlox is a mat-forming phlox that typically grows less than 6” tall, and spreads by trailing or spreading stems and self-seeding. Under the right conditions, it will spread over time to form large colonies.

Easter Is Not Named After Ishtar, And Other Truths I Have To Tell You

If there is one thing that drives me absolutely bananas, it’s people spreading misinformation via social media under the guise of “educating”. I’ve seen this happen in several ways – through infographics that twist data in ways that support a conclusion that is ultimately false, or else through “meaningful” quotes falsely attributed to various celebrities, or by cobbling together a few actual facts with statements that are patently untrue to create something that seems plausible on the surface but is, in fact, full of crap.

Yesterday, the official Facebook page of (noted misogynistandeugenicsenthusiast) Richard Dawkins’ Foundation for Reason and Science shared the following image to their 637,000 fans:

Naturally, their fans lapped this shit up; after all, this is the kind of thing they absolutely live for. Religious people! Being hypocritical! And crazy! And wrong! The 2,000+ comments were…
