oh dear.

I saw a dear today, eating grass in a languid manner that most of us have never even come close to. just wandering. matt and I crept closer, and the dear looked up at us as if to say "yeah so?". does a dear have shoulders? if so, it shrugged its smooth shoulders and lowered its head again to continue eating. oh dear oh dear. matt and I walked over a brigde that led us over a creek, the path we took was flanked by poison ivy on both sides. we saw some apples, some rocks, some water, and a fence that reminded us how, in america (aside from national parks), there is very little left. where ever there is land, there is real estate. where ever there is real estate, there is money. where ever there is money, there is a motivation. where ever there is motivation there are green desires waiting to be poisoned. today i was thinking about what vehicles are best for social change. there are two roads of thought: from within the system, or against the system. reform or revolution. the realists maybe thinks that it's foolish to even think about change in a positive way, given the nature of the dwindling human spirit..i feel like it's being suffocated by warnings, concerns, cautions and MTV. the dwindling human spirit. across the globe, it's becoming quite desolate. the smiles run as deep as they reach across. the sadness shining bright like heaven from weathered eyes is engaging. I think that the only purity left radiates from children. anyway..back to my vehicle for social change..i should stop right there. social change translates. the minute you start debating social change, it quickly evolves into a bottom line of human spirit. and how can you debate human spirit? people have thier mentalities, thier opinions, thier churches, friends, parents. the idealists, maybe they believe that change can happen from within, but that seems far fetched as well. dear oh dear. my friend was a victim of a rant of mine, going on and on about the bible and it's flaws, and it's confusions and contradictions..and she said, simply, "it's all interpretation"...and it is. so shut up.

I love seeing deer. They are such beautiful creatures.

The rest I will take time to "process". It is true, that a lot of things are a matter of viewpoint and one's frame-of-reference. A lot of times we have the same ideals and goals, but we may not always agree on how to get there. I like looking for things I agree with someone on first. It's a place to start.

I sometimes think you are searching for something and wish I could help you find it.. but I guess we each have to take our own journey.

God's blessings, Melanie

"I think that the only purity left radiates from children."

I agree, in a sense. But then I disagree with you, too. I can't back anything up with deep philosophical arguments or anything. I just know people who are pure, who are good. Light does shine in darkness. I see it in my community everyday. Sometimes it's easier to rant about what's wrong, which brings me to the brink of despair. I think despair does damage. And we risk despair when we think things are worse than they really, are and act that way. There is hope. And I believe people should act like it in order for it to work.

Do you think the best way to get the cheapest plane tickets is by calling the airline? Or, do you scan through hundreds of websites provided by search engines to find low airfare tickets? Maybe you hope to find cheap airfare in the local newspaper's travel section.
Finding cheap airline tickets can be one of the most frustrating experiences that most of us learn very quickly. Of course, most people eventually give up after spending hours scanning websites that offer virtually the same flight schedules and pricing. People purchase what they believe is the cheapest plane ticket, only to find their neighbor paid just a third of what they did!

Unless you understand the concept of of how airlines set prices, all the searching in the world won't provide the cheapest airline ticket prices. The following information will give you a guide to follow, as you wander through the maze searching for cheap airfare.

Understand how prices are set by airlines! Air ticket pricing is complex and unpredictable, and driven by competition, demand, and inventory. Airlines call this "yield management."

Competition is the beast behind the cheapest plane tickets. All major airlines utilize central reservation systems (owned by various airlines) to fill available seats. The systems are known as Apollo, Sabre, WorldSpan and Galileo. Prices are based on demand, and if some flights are selling well, the price will increase. If the flight is unpopular and has very little demand, the fare is lowered in hope of attracting consumers. In short, fares and inventory change every minute of every day!

Finding the cheapest plane tickets is difficult because travel agents and Internet websites use the central reservation systems that are updated periodically throughout the day. The reason why different searches come up with different results is because the systems are not updated at the same times. And, each system may use different algorithms when searching for low airfare tickets, which can provide a variety of ticket prices .

Remember that online casinos can afford to do this because they simply do not have the overhead that their brick and mortar land-based counterparts have. Equally, there is no excuse for an online casino NOT to be honest for exactly the same reason. They can offer free casino chips AND be an honest online casino in circumstances where their physical equivalents would find the financial burden impossible.

3. He analyzed the casino bonuses one by one and maximized his starting position. Almost all of the casinos offer an initial deposit bonus. Some even offer a second and third deposit bonus. On all of these promotions there are limits as to how much they allow as a bonus. In this case study the client played on all three deposit bonuses. First Deposit: 100% up to $150. Needless to say his first casino deposit was $150 (via Neteller) Second Deposit: 50% up to $150. His second deposit was $300 (via Neteller) giving him a bonus of $150. Again, he maximized his bonus allotment. Third Deposit: 75% up to $75. He deposited $100 (via Neteller) for a $75 bonus. In addition to the deposit bounses there was a Neteller deposit bouns. Neteller Deposit Bonus: Neteller bonus is a fixed 10% on all Neteller deposits. His total deposit was $550. So his bonus was $55.

Casino slots, blackjack, roulette, and other casino games are a relaxing way to unwind after a day of work. You may choose to open an account with a specific online casino operator. Some online gaming sites offer bonus dollars into your account upon sign-up. Many have 24/7 virtual support to help you understand their site and all it offers the player. Do you have a competitive streak? Do you want to match yourself up against other players? Many online casinos offer casino slots and table game tournaments. Enjoy the competition from your own home while in your pajamas. Try getting away with that in Vegas or Atlantic City, or anywhere else.

First, never choose a casino on the sole basis of his ranking in the search engine results. They are not necessarily good rankings on how a casino. You must go through several online casino sites to compare the benefits in detail and then make a decision. For example, should offer a bonus and, if so, how much. Are there any special promotions available?

See the banking options available at an online casino and how long it usually takes them to deliver earnings. Review some Web sites that offer information on how fast an Online Casino payroll.
Online casinos are casinos hosted on websites, and hence, a player can play these casino games only by using an Internet connection. Though they are hosted virtually, online casinos include all the exciting elements of a traditional brick and mortar casinos, and in fact, are much more convenient, cheaper and easier to access than their traditional counterparts. Some of the games offered by online casinos include Baccarat, Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, Online slot games and Poker.

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.

Lots of people online have the same annoying experiences when they simply want to learn more about anything specific.

So many people just do not realize how to find the highest quality search engine results.

We have read many men and women make a complaint about that, so you are not being singled out by the search engines. So we made the decision to put some solid and dependable facts together for you concerning [url=]Thoi trang nam[/url].

Then you will know more about it so you can make an smart decision and move forward with confidence.

The relative difficulties of men's and women's fashion

Both women and men may have the difficulties of keeping their wardrobe up-to-date and in time, yet men's fashion usually feels a lot simpler. Of course, for both sexes, outfits and fashion options could be equally as complicated, and there are several'fashionable'items that can easily become fashion faux pas - who are able to say they often times see people travelling in 70s flames? On the other hand, men's fashion features a few choice items which will exist forever - which man is planning to watch out of position with a good-quality, tailored suit, for instance? Select classic pieces, colors and fabrics and you'll never look out-of-place.

Why basic men's style is timeless

The common man's suit has barely changed for over a hundred years. True, there are numerous kinds for various occasions, nevertheless they are all popular in their pursuit of a clever, sharp search for the wearer. The neat thing about traditional style for men is that it is effortlessly elegant effortlessly cool. A well-groomed lady will more often than not look his sharpest in a well-tailored suit, and it is a testament to the style of such clothing. A suit will undoubtedly be used to work in several jobs due to the professional search it provides to the person, instilling a sense of respect and confidence. Similarly a suit will be used to several social situations, such as a tuxedo to a black-tie affair. This amazing versatility that enables matches to be utilized in nearly all functions is what gives it its classic border and a lasting devote men's fashion.

Modern movements in classic men's style

Though common men's styles can never be changed, it's interesting to remember that shifts in men's fashion trends have brought particular common garments back to fashion. The recognition of vintage clothing, specially, has brought back a wide-variety of common types into men's closets, such as that of the dandy guy. 'Dandy'is a term used to make reference to men who clothe themselves in a classic yet elegant way, acting in a polished method and placing value on appearance. This tendency for almost'over-the-top'classic fashion for men is evident from events like the'Tweed Run', where men and girls of all ages dress yourself in obviously Victorian-style attire and take to the roads on vintage cycles - with lots of the men wearing flawless mustaches! This is just one of many types of data presenting the resurrection of such styles. There are also numerous blogs on the web which focus on gentlemanly style - such as'The Dandy Project'and'Dandyism'- as well as complete internet sites such as'The Art of Manliness'specialized in giving articles on traditional men's fashion and grooming.

In summary, though certain areas of classic men's fashion may be cut back as new styles, the fundamental garments that they are based on will never slip out of fashion.
