the week after Thanksgiving is always "in-service" at work, and in all honesty, I'm about in-serviced out. Compression plannings, meetings, and the annual Professional Development Day motivational speakers all add up to days packed with zillions of things that preclude anything important from being addressed, much less begun or completed.

Thank goodness for my beloved Mary Ann, who brightens my day with her wonderfully colorful creations and sense of humor. While I knitted through yesterday's speakers, she completed 8 Sudokus. Yes, the girls in A&S 237 are not well-behaved, and yes, we will make history!

My goal for the weekend is to get some photos and commentary from Thanksgiving week in NC posted and start thinking about the holidays...

Hasta luego....

Pre-Thanksgiving love abounds here at the Farm...Bobbi and Isabella arrived Sunday afternoon...Those two always bring loads of laughter and fun...Joe Davis came over from Athens last evening, and all of us, along with Tom Jackson, had some major deep connected farm time...lots and lots of laughter, a wonderful fire in the fireplace, and a succulent lamb, collards, wild rice, and homemade cranberry sauce meal Thanksgiving meal here at the farm... Bob, Tom, and I in the kitchen were a site to behold...Meanwhile, Isabella and her favorite farm friends, Annie and Molly, played so hard they fell asleep together underneath the dining room table! :0)

Tom J., the dogs, and I are off to NC tomorrow...Will see Grandma Shook...Ride around in the mountains...Hang out... Samuel and Eliza will be together in Florida....

It's all about love at its best....The photos say it all...

Joy radiates in every cell of my being at this moment...
I am grateful for this day and my many, many, many blessings....

Namasté... T.

THE BIG "O" FOR PEACE - Think Globally, Act Locally

Princeton University, Princeton, NJ

This is the First Annual Winter Solstice Synchronized Global Orgasm for Peace, leading up to Winter Solstice of 2012, when the Mayan Calendar ends with a new beginning.

The intent is that the participants concentrate any thoughts during and after orgasm on peace. The combination of high-energy orgasmic energy combined with mindful intention may have a much greater effect than previous mass meditations and prayers.

The goal is to add so much concentrated and high-energy positive input into the energy field of the Earth that it will reduce the current dangerous levels of aggression and violence throughout the world. Global Orgasm is an experiment open to everyone in the world. The results will be measured on the worldwide monitor system of the Global Consciousness Project.
Please send out to your entire mailing list!

WHO? All Men and Women, you and everyone you know.
WHERE? Everywhere in the world, but especially in countries with weapons of mass destruction.
WHEN? Winter Solstice Day - Friday, December 22nd, at the time of your choosing, in the place of your choosing and with as much privacy as you choose.
WHY? To effect positive change in the energy field of the Earth through input of the largest possible surge of human energy. There are two more US fleets heading for the Persian Gulf with anti-submarine equipment that can only be for use against Iran, so the time to change Earth's energy is NOW!

Our minds influence Matter and Energy fields, so by concentrating any thoughts during and after The Big O on peace and partnership, the combination of high orgasmic energy combined with mindful intention will reduce global levels of violence, hatred and fear.This is something just about everyone can do and enjoy. And you can do it by yourself or with someone else. You don't even have to tell anyone you're going to do it!

THE SCIENCE: The Global Consciousness Project (, Princeton University, runs a network of Random Event Generators around the world, which record changes in randomness during global events. The results show that human consciousness can be measured to have a global effect on matter and energy during widely-watched events such as 9/11 and the Indian Ocean tsunami. There have also been measurable results during mass meditations and prayers.

It's free! It's private! It's easy! It's fun! It just might be the most important thing you could do for yourself, your family, the planet and our species.

How happy would you be if for your 15th birthday, you put it out to the Universe that the guy you'd really like to go out with asked you out?

Well, just ask Eliza, whose request came true today when her friend Matt became her boyfriend Matt on her 15th birthday! She's so excited she can hardly contain herself!!!!!

As I write this, Matt, his brother, Josh, and Lexie, Eliza's best friend who is also Josh's girlfriend, are downstairs celebrating E's 15th birthday, playing Twister (hmmmmm??) and eating pizza. How cool is it that two best friends are going out with brothers - brothers who really like each other and get along well????!!??

It's been a magical day for Eliza..Friends honored her at school with gifts, and she's gotten several phone calls from friends and family. A really special call was the one she got from Samuel. To continue the celebration, Lexie, her mom, Kim, Eliza, and I are heading to Easton Mall in Columbus on Sunday to do some birthday shopping. It'll be a girls' day and fun, fun, fun...

My memories of Eliza's birth: Exhilaration at meeting my little girl, agony at having pneumonia at that time, a sore body (not so much from the C-section as from the discomfort of coughing all the time), and looking into two little eyes that never stopped gazing into mine.

Fifteen years later, I look into those same eyes and see into the essence of an amazing young woman...incredibly bright, sensitive, caring, compassionate, and beautiful in every way. And, I'm honored beyond words that she chose to incarnate on the planet through me so that we could share our lives as mom and daughter.

Happy Birthday, E! Infinite love.......Mom

The very first photo that pops up is none other than our very own farm girl, Lori Beth (in the tee-shirt) with her friend Amanda, the bear-eating shark!!! (This, by the way, is the photo Lori submitted to the First Annual Namasté Blog Halloween Costume Contest that I can't figure out how to post.)

YEAH LORI & AMANDA !!!!!! You two "hot-ties" are cyberspace stars!

(If you've never checked out Home Star Runner, take a trip through the site. I guarantee you'll laugh along the way!)

Can't wait to get the word out, so I'm going to post this NOW!!!

Those of you who were kind enough to participate will receive something appropriate in time, so hang in there until your prize arrives. (NOTE: Lori's submission from Hawaii and Mary Ann's original submission wouldn't post on my blog, but I'll keep working on them. In the meantime, I posted a shot of Mary Ann that I took.)
