Ah... seems LOUD his his little story going on both two different threads...

Perhaps it will be easier if we keep his adventures with his two favorite pals over here? If that is O.K. with the both of you.

As we are all enjoying our tea, pastry, apples (back on the Tumbleweed thread), and of course conversation - it does occur to me -

Where in the world did LOUD learn how to play the guitar?

Hi Zinnie,

That's a good idea. The undeniably charasmatic little red LOUD dog will appreciate settling into the one thread, for the most magical journey.

How little red LOUD dog actually learned how to play the guitar - is yet another enigmatic mystery of the wonders of the amazing LOUD. What a dog!!

Love - La Rosa

Oops, I went to Support threads first. Yes, you're right, our tea party should be here instead. LOUD will get all tired out running back and forth between Libs and Support. 🙂

Perhaps soon, if we're very lucky Zinnie, our talented and entertaining little red LOUD dog, may be feeling in the mood to treat us to one of his special magical perfomances....guitar style. Wouldn't THAT be a pleasure!

More tea anyone? Another Chocolate Eclair Tumbles?:)

Yes, La Rosa, some music would be wonderful with our tea and a performance by LOUD. Another eclair, yes. Haven't actually had one in many years, haven't even seen them anymore. Think I'll see if they recipes for them on the web, just curious. How are u doing? Do u go out to work? Just wondering what your interests are. Later. 🙂

The three friends continue to dine on their apples, carmel dip, eclairs and the most wonderful tea.

They wonder where is LOUD?

They hear some tuning and stumming of a guitar - all of the sudden - THERE he is... playing his little guitar with all of his heart. What else can we do? But, clap and enjoy the show.

I just knew it was probably carmel dip and not the kind that tries to pull your teeth. What is that tune LOUD is playing now?

Oh! Little red LOUD dog!!

(Clap,clap,clap,clap)

LOUD and his favourite friends

Had some tea

On a beautiful spring-time morn

They'd enjoyed their eclairs

Without having much care

Of what they would do for a song

Just as the sweetest of melodies was heard

...the little red LOUD dog a star on his own.

What a lovely little doggie

You are - You are

What a lovely little red LOUD dog...

YOU ARE.

CLAP - CLAP - CLAP - CLAP - CLAP -

(to the the rhythm of... 'The Owl & The Pussycat')

But what is the name of the tune LOUD is playing??

The little red LOUD dog continues his tune... he is making it up as he goes along. It is quite catchy and the three friends laugh as Tumbles recounts her adventures with LOUD when they hit the D.C. scene.

The Tumblin' Gal recounts to the beautiful La Rosa how when the Prez heard that LOUD was in town he invited them to dine in the White House. Never one to miss a meal the little red LOUD dog and his beloved Tumblin' Gal arrived - they still laugh however, at the thought of the game of Hide n' Seek that they played on the Secret Service detail.

Also - the dip that I make for apple slices?

1 jar of carmel sauce

1 8 oz. container of cream cheese (softened - or, I use the whipped)

1/4 to 1/3 of a cup of honey

Mix well, and enjoy. I also have added from time to time - chopped pecans or even chocolate chips for a different taste. It is always a hit.

Enjoy...

Hi, all. Ty for the recipe, Z. I'm glad it is a simple one to make. I must find your recipe for that fruit cake or bread you gave before which people with sugar problems can eat. Getting all my spiral notebooks organized would be a good thing to do. They're all getting to be miscellaneous. 🙂

Hi Tumbleweed, Zinnie, LOUD & All

That's a very good word Tumbleweed!;) I can see myself using it.

Just a little about my interests Tumbleweed.....because an occupation is something that has eluded me - and feel I've missed. When I got married at 17, after getting engaged at 16 (just out of high school), it was expected I'd be a housewife, and my 23year old husband-to-be was of like mind. It just seemed that I was going to be a stay-at-home mum. That's what I'd accepted as being 'inevitable' and so accepted the proposal of marriage (after thinking about it over-night). My career prospects had been significantly hindered by being hit off my bike by an intoxicated driver, when I was twelve - and because I had a gash to the back of my head (temporal lobe) that required about eight stitches - and because they didn't heal smoothly enough on the inside leaving scar tissue - it unfortunately resulted in my having seizures. That accident is obviously a major factor in my life - and I'm really very fortunate to be here at all - to have come out of the coma. My mother couldn't get over the stigma of it all, and instead of putting things into perspective, she was embarrassed and ashamed of me. I didn't realise then, that my mother is quite narcissistic. Although I'd noticed her vanity and realised that she was a bit 'different', I had still accepted her as Mom, or Mum as I would say. As long as a did well at school I felt I was OK.....which I had been doing, at least up until being put on 'valium' and another medicaton to control the seizures. That's when I needed her to give me some moral support and when I also found out that I'd lost her.....of course I hadn't lost her.....I just didn't realise then that I never had her. It didn't stop me from trying to get her back - and became ingrained.

Apart from bringring up my son, to the best of my ability, I've had a big interest in psychology, basically wanting to better understand how we humans tick - it's a subject that answers lots of searching questions in an objective, impartial manner, according to some educated logic and being interested does make a lot of sense to me. - Philosophy and spirituality interest me too, along with art, music, literature, working out how to gain my independence and of course not forgetting astrology.

Thanks for the recipe Zinnie, as it happens and coincidently, on the subject of curtailing sweet foods, for health reasons, I've just been out today to the Med Lab for another blood test - it's to check for the early signs of diabetes, as it runs in my family on my Dads' side. Although not by my Dad himself, many uncles and aunties etc which wouldn't have been assisted any by my grandparents owning a sweet shop, making fudge and toffee and other assorted sweet sweets.

As I'd gone over the preferred time for fasting, when it was done a little while back, this test was just to make sure. Well, it's done properly now, and as far as the results are concerned, the rule will probably remain "No news - is good news."

There are at least few 'foods' that'll be put into the IN MODERATION category from hereonin....definately including chocolate. It's time to start becoming much more aware of what I'm eating. Your recipe Zinnie, sounds very tempting indeed, and the kind that's easy to make - all I need to do now is hunt down and put some order back into my well establishd, miscellaneous recipe collection. 🙂 Take Care &

Love - La Rosa

La Rosa, I'm sorry about that accident when you were so young and all the problems it caused or certainly didn't make any better for you. My youngest son also went through a time of having seizures and he also was thrown off his bike and after that is when the seizures started, real obvious ones. Before that I think he had some problem with sort of spacing out for lack of a better way to describe it. I know there are medical terms for both of these conditions. He was allergic to nearly all of the medications they tried for him. Thankfully, he is a functioning adult now though, has a good job, a family, college degrees etc. He and his wife got married right after they both turned 18 yrs. old. It is hard for a girl to marry so young though. My daughter married young, too, same thing, had 3 children and she has never really wanted to grow up. I would be happy if she was interested in learning new things. I have the same interests you do. I went from one religion and group to another and I recently started an Astropsychology course which is based on Nostradamus way of doing astrology. Thankfully, I can take all the time I want to learn it from Dr. Louis Turi who has helped me with that. He has a very informative web site which I read when I can and learn from there as well. There is so much to it. I've made notes from Joseph Campbell's teachings and also from Dr. Wayne Dyer and have tapes from people like Carolyn Myss and others which have all been helpful. I am happiest when I'm searching and learning. Have a book, Anam Cara and tapes by John O'Donohue, who also has a web site as most do, anymore. I like wisdom from many sources, studied some Native American, some Celtic etc. Hope you have a great day and a great week. Would love to hear about Scotland, love the castles and all the Victorian which I've mentioned before on this site as I get so excited over those things. Love, TW

Will write more later, but, I am swamped right now - so much so I almost have no time to think.

BUT, the little red LOUD dog simply couldn't pass up the chance to wish his favorite friends a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!

He thinks he is looking spooky in his little pirate outfit - BUT, we all know better that the true treasure is knowing him!

Love,

Z.

Hi all, As for me, I didn't do anything special for Halloween. If I had young children around, I would have been baking and decorating cupcakes, but I don't need to be eating them so have no evidence of Halloween around. Different on here, I could be joining you with a platter of cakes and a pumpkin full of candy. 🙂

Hi Tumbleweed,

Thank You for your support concerning the accident. Yes it was a shame, and in 'hindsight', probably contributed towards my difficulty in establishing a good sense of my personal boundaries. So glad to hear that your son stopped having seizures....that must have been just wonderful. It must've really been a VERY stressful time for you, especially seeing your son was allergic to most of the medication. After many years of trying different medications, thankfully the ones I'm on now are doing an excellent job of controlling them, and I'm quite entitled to drive a car...and learned 'how to'! It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be.

My decision to get married young, was also indirectly connected to the accident, in as far as it seemed to be my best remaining option - but absolutly nothing like I would've preferred. So my brilliant logical deduction was - "If that's what it is to be...then why wait?! Why put off the inevitable?" Although I'd every intention and felt confident of being a good wife....lack of direction was the major catalyst....and as the guy I'd only known a couple of weeks was quite nice and also 'cause I'd be away from my mother who kept reminding me of what I could've been, had it not been for the accigent. So it all seemed like a very good idea to a sixteen year old, at the time.

I hadn't given consideration to power imbalances - or what to do when your husband comes home late, drunk and in a bad mood lots of nights. That's the way it happened after the first week and - the honeymoon - was over...and it wasn't looking like such a good idea any longer. Two and half years later my first and only baby,
our son was born...and three months later, I left with Willie. There was no way he'd be growing up in that hosile environment that his father seemed to thrive on. It was a wise decision.

In three years of being married, my main 'interest' was in learning how to cook, and keep a clean, tidy house. It did give me some sense of self-satisfaction, and I'd taken some pride in doing it quite well. If I'd remained married though, I doubt that I would've felt comfortable, delving into learning about all the things that I actually do find to be so interesting, and fascinating. etc etc Probably like yourself Tumbleweed, the desire to learn comes so naturally - and is a reward in itself just in nurturing yourself each day with added awareness. It's probably something to do with my Aquarius moon sign.:) Astropsychology does sound quite fascinating Tumbleweed, and I will check it out further, as I'd like to understand how it works. It's very good You can take the course at your own pace - I think that just has to be the best way....when it's best for you. Hope you find it to be most enlightening and all you were hoping it would be. Must go now. BBFN

Love - La Rosa

Ty, La Rosa. I just want to share with you that Nostradamus went on the month of birth so if you were born anytime in Feb., that makes you an Aquarius. That is the sign of the genius. Very intelligent people and very futuristic in their thinking. Dr. Turi who teaches Astropsychology is an Aquarius and as he states, he is well ahead of his time in his thinking even though he is teaching things based on how Nostradamus taught. He is going to be on the Coast to Coast radio program I listen to this Friday at 1 a.m. here and it sounds like it will be interesting. At least I know I will enjoy hearing him. I know I have mentioned about him on here before because I was so excited to find someone who would not want all the money to learn something like this up front, but was willing to work with people who wanted to learn from him. All this being said though, I know he is probably not for everyone as he is seen as controversial in some areas especially since this is new to most people, I guess, though he's known all over the world. My son who also had seizures, is an Aquarius, too, and he has studied a lot of things along the lines of Theosophy etc. He and I used to be able to have some interesting conversations, very helpful to me as he knows more, I think than I do. He can tell me about avatars and multi dimensions, things which I don't fully comprehend yet though I'm open to learning. Like you after getting married so young, my daughter also became a very good cook and still is. That is her thing in the house. I know of people who have made money cooking and baking for people even from their own homes, have even seen it here in my building. I definitely see it as an art to be able to do that. Later. 🙂

Hi all, Just starting my day here. I was reading this Artist's Sketchbook magazine. Very interesting. It tells how to find time to do something artistic everyday, basically just schedule the time in and it compares cooking, art and gardening saying they are all art. That is how I see it plus many more things which are creative. I found it so encouraging to just get started on something even if it turns out awful at first, but to do something each day. Even if only 15 minutes of time are given to it. I never thought of it that way. I think I can do that though. Hope everyone is doing well. Later. 🙂

Thank You for sharing Tumbleweed, and yes, I am soo very glad to have some Aquarius influence, and didn't really mean to be showing off, it's just that I wouldn't be 'me' without .:) Although Aquarius does show up in my chart quite a lot, and significantly the moon was in Aquarius at the time of my birth (Aquarius moon sign), however, born in May, I shall remain - Taurus - Child of Venus.:) Tumbleweed, can you just guess what I'm wondering now??

As far as Dr. Turi is concerned though, there's still the important answer to THE obvious question, I do not yet understand - and that being - WHY does Dr.Turi believe the Nostradamus teachings to be more accurate than orthodox astrology? THAT IS THE QUESTION I would like to know the answer to...because IF it IS an even more accurate method of analysis - then WHY wasn't IT accepted as THE orthodox method? It's a sensible question to ask under the circumstances. Especially when the large majority of people who are into astrology, have been believing that they were getting the exact positioning of the stars and planets, at the time of their birth, because it made for more accuracy! So I'll certainly be looking into it, Tumbleweed. 'Contoversial' is just fine....as it draws attention to things that may require looking at in more detail - and it's very understandable why this is controversial. It does ask some very valid questions. Mmmmmm?

While my cooking is 'quite good', to me, somehow I don't think I've quite made an art form of it yet, my dear Tumbleweed.....and I don't really think I deserve to be compared with your daughter, as I'm sure she's a much better cook than I am. Nevertheless though, maybe it is good enough (?) - I just hadn't even considered it before. It seems as though it could be an area where I'm experiencing a blockage of some sort.

Anyway, I think I should mention that I haven't been sleeping very well lately, feeling a bit zapped most of the time....otherwise I would have written before now. BBFN & Take Care.

Hi Again Tumbleweed!

You're enthusiasm is contagious! I just had to let you know that (even though I'm half asleep) you ARE a very creative person......is it that you are just realising you ARE?! That is just brilliant!! 🙂

I'm going to have very pleasant dreams tonight.:)

Hi all again, I don't know the exact answer to the question, but he did say back in Nostradamus time he didn't make calculations like many make now because of not having the resources we do. It is possible he didn't even have a clock, a calendar etc. but going on the monthly basis, he was still accurate. So far, I've only started the course like two lessons and haven't grasped everything yet, but it is possible to ask questions on his site. It has obviously changed who I thought people in the family were going by the monthly calculations, but it makes sense according to how they are. I am a Leo either way, Aug. 15th. In my chart though I am for example a Virgo in finances and health, my 2nd house and so it goes around for the 12 houses, the different areas of one's life. I am a different sign in each area according to this way. I may start my art work designing my own wheel, for example with the symbols etc. I think it might be similar to people who draw mandalas for therapy or find it has value, at least. It was the thought which came to me though I'd like to be able to do scenaries, too. I would choose something for each season for that. What I have experienced is a lot of ideas for quite a while, but not much connection getting them from my head down to paper. The same with writing, some days the words flow and others I can't think of a thing to say. I always liked Ira Progoff's idea of self help, something which I saw as very valuable to people who are confined in some way, a way of helping themselves, but again an idea which went nowhere. With all the groups etc. around, I don't feel that people in confinement get enough benefit from that type of help even if there is something offerred within their system. Yes, have had a lot of dreams, all in my head. What I know about Taurus is they are determined to work hard and get somewhere. They do have a love of beauty. My one granddaughter is born in May, is only 16, has already worked 2 previous jobs and going on her 3rd plus going to school and activities there. She has her own health issues, but is able to joke about her Turner's disease. She is short, but simply says she is vertically challenged. Always seems happy and outgoing plus being intelligent. 🙂
