With knowledge comes great power.

This painting, in my mind, is trying to show that in books comes knowledge. And with that knowledge great empires can be built. But let me say that the fall of many great peoples was not because of the lack of knowledge, but the lack of how to use that knowledge in accord with wisdom.

Both seasons at the same time




In this picture painted by Rob Gonsalves you will see how the artist magically captures the beauty of Autumn and Spring in the same frame.

The Three Little Pigs

There once were three little pigs, who when they got old enough went out to build themselves each a little home near a lonely store in the country.

The first little pig went to the store and bought a bunch of cardboard boxes (because he said it was the "easy way") and made him self a house.

The second little pig went to the store and bought a bunch of pine 1x1s  (because he said it was fast and that pine was tough) and built him self a house purely out of those and nails.

The third little pig went to the store, but it wasn't to buy, it was to work, he walked up to the clerk/owner, "I'd like to fill out an application to work at this store please"he said. The clerk answered "Sorry we don't have applications for people let alone pigs, but I can let you work for the day." So the pig was brought to the back and put to work..........

By about 6.00 p.m the first little pig had his house of cardboard up and running, the second little pig was just making some finishing touches on his house and the third little pig was getting his first pay check of $50.00 from the store clerk, then he bought a sleeping bag and a tent, set up camp and fell fast asleep (as did the other little pigs in their homes).

 The first and second little pig got up the next morning to find out that they had no money to buy breakfast because they had spent it all on the luxuries of the home and not the necessity's.

The third little pig on the other hand had plenty of money for food and necessity's. He ate his breakfast, then went to work and after that setting up a sturdy little home and had a very prosperous life, going to work each day at sunrise and coming back at sunset.

         
                                                           

                                                                   The end   
                             of The Three Little Pigs                                     

     P.S. This is what the first and second little pig grew up to be.

P.P.S. The third little pig, because he was able to support and feed him self, grew up to be very fat, (in a good and tasty way) and was eventually butchered and eaten.

The fable of the Blue Ringed Death


   "I wonder what it is?" Thought Jimmy as he spotted a little blue circle off in the water. His parents had told him not to go into the water, the water didn't look so deep, and this was his first time, so his parents would understand. Instead of listening to his parents words, he started for the water. "Maybe I could bring it back to mom and dad to show that I'm big enough to go into the water." He thought. As he got closer he saw more of the blue circles. They moved. The little boy stuck his hand into the water and grabbed a hand full of the blue rings, they grabbed his arm with strong little tentacles. He screamed, then started to feel sick the. He saw what the blue ring were, they were the blue rings on a blue ringed octopus one of the most poisonous animals in the world. By disobeying his parents the last thing Jimmy heard was his mother calling for him. The last thing he ever saw were the terrifying blue rings of the octopus. And at that time, Jimmy realized that his first time at the beach was his last because he disobeyed the fifth commandment that says, “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you." Exodus 20:12

The Killer Corn Dog

"To arms" called Commander Cabbage as Captain Killer Corn Dog and his evil pizza minions stormed towards the gate. Rows upon rows: Cabbage, lettuce, turnips and even the little peas, all armed, made a semi circle around the inside of the gate. BAM! The giant cabbages put all their weight against the gate to hold back the minions, but even with all their strength it was splintering. Everyone backed away from the gate, weapons in hand. SMASH! The battle had begun. Captain Killer Corn Dog, smothered in ketchup, was the first in his army to even cut Commander Cabbage. The commander with dead pizza minions all around was shocked to see the evil corn dog dicing his men. Nearly too late he ducked as the corn dog's sword sped straight at him and sliced through his helmet so that it made a notch in his head. But cabbages are not deterred that easily, the commander swung his sword at his opponent and impaled the great corn dog but that was not enough to stop the Captain Killer Corn Dog. Slash, dodge, block, stab, defend then slash again. Anyway, the battle went on like this with neither side winning or losing and ketchup flying in every direction. Then the Elite Prunes of the north came in and cleaned out the whole army of pizza minions so that Commander Cabbage could finally throw his adversary down the drain and into the moat. After the battle, the vegetables and the prunes worked together to over throw the Burger Bandit and his burger bullies.

See how easily you can make a delicious potato breakfast

Did you wake up this mourning to you stomach growling. Did you look in the fridge only to find a couple of uncooked potatoes and a stick of butter. Now all you need is a frying pan and your good to go. Put the pan on the stove to heat up, stick some butter on the pan and chop up the potatoes. By the time you have chopped the potatoes the pan should be heated and the butter is probably melted. Drop the potatoes in the pan and cook them all while stirring them and adding butter until they are brown and tender. Dump them onto a plate and they are be gone into your stomach minutes.

How It began....

Today i'm going to give you a poem from one of my favorite books.


Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
               Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone
Nine for the Mortal Men doomed to die,
        One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne,
In the Land of Mordor where the shadows lie,
             One Ring to rule them all,One Ring to find them,
 One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
 In the land of Mordor where the shadows lie. 

   


That is the poem at the beginning of the master piece....The Lord Of The Rings.

by J.R.R Tolkien
