Blue Ain't Your Color by Keith Urban

I worked at my garden job yesterday getting some of the last plants into the ground.  We are nearly a month late in getting the garden planted.

Afterwards I decided to ride my bike to the Goodwill on the South Side.

While I was shopping Keith Urban's song played.  I loved it.  I wanted to sing along.


I got some new pics of teacups taken for my Ebay store and I am playing it here this Memorial Day morning and singing along.....

Purple Iris Blooming at the Mexican War Sts Garden in Pittsburgh

I walked a block over to Arch St to get something to eat and as I walked by the garden, a block and a half down the street from Randyland, I saw a few purple irises blooming.  They were so pretty I just wanted to take pics of them.  It was after it had rained and there were rain drops on the petals.

After eating and charging the battery for my Pentax camera I walked over to take some pics.  Most of the rain drops had dried up.

I set my camera to a setting I have not tried before.  The "flower" setting on the "Program" setting.  I had taken pics of tulips at my garden job recently and they didn't turn out too good.  I have taking indoor pics down pretty good with my camera.  And I need more practice taking outdoor pics.  Especially of flowers.

The pics turned out so pretty.  I was glad I stopped:

Suzanne Humphries, MD, speaking on Polio at the Association of Natural H...

Former Salesman For Vaccine Maker Merck & Co. Wouldn't Vaccinate His Son

A Virgin Mary "coincidence"?

At the end of December I opened a booth on Bonanza, and I have listed some of my vintage items on there:

http://www.bonanza.com/booths/ShoponSherman

Views have been very low.  From none to single digits.  Unless I post listings to social media.  Which I believe really is no good.  Those are just curious views.  Not shopping views.

I have been posting on a Bonanza blog post about my experience with views and thoughts of the site.

After 3 consecutive days of single digit views, mostly coming after 6pm, I just posted again on the blog stating I believe Bonanza needs to change its approach.  I made a reference to an Ebay item about the Virgin Mary.

After I posted that comment I went right to twitter, and at the top of my feed was a re-tweet and I loved the quote,:

 "Live as the others around you live, with naturalness, but ‘supernaturalising' every moment of your day.” - St. Josemaria Escriva



So I googled the site.  I hadn't heard of the organization before.  As I scrolled down their homepage I saw they have a page for Prayer Requests.

When I clicked on that I see their prayer for their requests is to the Virgin Mary.

http://stjosemaria.org/prayer-requests/


 I did make my own prayer request and prayed the prayer for others.

I will read more of the organization and it's members and their beliefs.

Back to work.

RT's Peter Lavelle interviews Dr. Ron Paul

Spring 2016 at My Garden Job

I was just going through some of my folders to pick out some vintage teacups to list online when I saw pics of the garden at which I work from last spring.

I remember taking these.

I love seeing the trees blooming there every April.  So I wanted to capture what they look like.





I have loved working there.  I love being there on sunny days especially.  And I love being there in the Spring.  I worked there two days a week, and each day I'd go in there would be more green.  More blooms.





I don't know if I will be able to go there this year.  It is not looking promising.  I will miss it a lot if I have to quit there.

Almost time for bed.

Ted Cruz accuses Democrats of being 'silent' when Obama administration politicized Justice Department

Ted Cruz accuses Democrats of being 'silent' when Obama administration politicized Justice Department: Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, R, speaking during attorney general nominee Jeff Sessions' confirmation hearing on Tuesday, accused the Democrats on this committee of being silent when the Obama administration politicized the Department of Justice over the last eight years. During the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Cruz rattled off a number of examples. When the Department of Justice used Operation Choke Point to target legal businesses because they disagreed politically with those businesses, the Democrats on this committee were silent, Cruz said. When the Obama Justice Department sent millions of dollars of taxpayer monies to sanctuary cities that were defying federal immigration law, the Democrats on this committee were silent. When the Obama administration refused to enforce federal immigration laws and unilaterally re-wrote this laws, the Democrats on this committee were silent, he continued. When the Obama administration released tens of thousands of criminal illegal aliens including rapists and murderers into the general population, the Democrats on this committee were silent.
