From Eric Huffstutler (Bethel HS - '75) of VA - 04/30/09 - "Sad Day for Chrysler":
Sad state of affairs when we are quickly losing our identity in America. First we give into Political Correctness. Then we give in to illegal Immigrants. Next we lose our identity through things like holidays - American traditions rooted long before the 1990s and accepted as such. Now we are losing our industrial backbone, the American automobile. Is there anything left that tells the world that America is #1 anymore? I feel like we have fallen from grace and are just another face in the crowd.
Chrysler has always been a favorite automobile of mine - hence the Imperials I owned. But now going bankrupt means they will merge with Fiat... a company that today is known for unremarkable nondescript economy cars. I fear that icons like the Chrysler 300 will fall to the wayside and the 2010 Imperial will be cancelled. To tell you the truth, I was surprised to see the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro being introduced after everything GM is also going through, as "muscle cars" are frowned upon because of the economy and fuel prices as well as sanctions.
We lost Plymouth, Oldsmobile, and going to lose Pontiac. They want to keep GMC which is stupid because that is only a glorified Chevrolet and drop Pontiac instead of Buick which I think would be a slower seller. They are calculating it differently. Hell, cars aren't even cars any longer. When Cadillac started making trucks I knew we were in for trouble. An icon of luxury turns utilitarian is not good and now overshadows the automobile itself leaving the name only a ghost of its former self.
Personally I am sick of cookie
cutter automobiles and a glut of SUVs. I will always be a car person no matter
Sorry for the rant but wanted to pass along my opinions after seeing ... Chrysler (forced) into bankruptcy. A sad day.
Thanks, Eric! I haven't published any rants lately, so I bent my new rule for you today.
(I make up new "rules" all the time. When my health broke sixteen months ago - or possible even before then - I willy-nilly decided I would no longer print controversial or political topics to ensure y'all would all play nicely together. I still do not feel up to refereeing any rebuttal on this subject....)

- Top 10 Powerful Secrets to Empower Your
By Cecilia Nannini, Apr. 21, 2009
Living a successful prosperous life filled
with happiness and inner peace is available to everyone. All YOU need to do is
know the secrets to creating the life you want to experience. Here is a summary
of the ten secrets from the up coming series of tele-seminars – Top 10 Powerful
Secrets for Empowering Your Life (for more information visit
them an integral part of your life.
1. Clarity - Know clearly what you want.
Before any journey can start you need to know where you want to go, even if you don’t know exactly how to get there. This is true for your life as well. You need to know what you want in your life before you can start to create it in your life. This step is SO important. Put aside some quiet time, with no noise or interruptions, close your eyes and day-dream about the most wonderful life you can imaging for yourself. What job or career would you love to do? What would your home environment be like? How would your relationships be, with your partner, your children, your parents your friends, your co-workers? What about your finances, your health, your fitness? In every area of your life, stretch your imagination to where you feel a surge of excitement or joy run through your body. Stretch your imagination to the point of exhilaration but still within a believable range of possibility for you. Write down a description of this picture with as much detail as you can, note especially, how you feel when you imagine living this life. Now you have your destination, keep it in focus. Watch for opportunities that come your way that line up with this image.
2. Understand The Law of Attraction and Ask for What You Want.
You may know it as the power of positive thinking, Karma, co-incidence etc. What is actually happening is that everything in the universe is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies. Energy of a particular frequency will attract more energy of that same frequency, in other words, in the case of energy ‘like’ attracts ‘like’. Your thoughts are energy and by imagining some wonderful wish, for yourself, the joyous feeling the thought generates in you, gives out vibrational energy that attracts to you more of what gives you joy. You can think of it as putting an order to the Universe and the universe delivers what you have FELT about. It is the feeling that the thought generates in you that is the vibration. But a word of caution, this will work in the positive or the negative i.e. you can also attract things you don’t want when you focus on the things you don’t want that make you feel bad, so make sure you only focus on and put your energy into, positive and joyous things and watch your life become more and more joyous.
3. Segment Intent - Set yourself intentions for smaller sections of your life’s journey.
It is important to know where you want to get to when setting off on a long journey i.e. your life, however the journey is made up entirely of small section we live day to day, all strung together. Therefore although you have the idea and feeling of the overall life you have set as your desire, live each day with an intention you set for that part of the journey. A joyous and successful life is one that is filled with joyous and successful moments. Set your intention to make each part of your day the best you can imagine. What outcome would you like from the work meeting you are going to have this morning? How would you like the visit to your in-laws to turn out? What would you like the mood to be as you prepare the children for school? Take a minute before starting each part of the day and make a wish on how you would like the moment to be. You will be amazed at the difference this can make.
4. Live The Power of Now.
Be aware of the power of ‘now’. The concept of time is a man-made one. The past does not exist except in your mind. Neither does the future. The only moment that exists is the NOW. It is the only moment in which you can live. By dwelling in what has happened in the past or by putting off living for some time in the future you will be wasting all your ‘now’ moments, which is where your life is happening. When your mind is pre-occupied by either the past or future thoughts, it is taking your awareness away from your life in the now. This way you live an unconscious or semi-unconscious life, missing all the wonder that surrounds you and is there for your immediate enjoyment. When you become fully present to what you are doing in the moment, you will feel the power of the universe behind everything you do, your task will be done with much more ease and satisfaction.
5. Be Grateful.
Our feeling and emotions are how we communicate with the unlimited potentiality of the universe or source energy. It is therefore of utmost importance that your vibration or emotions are always at the frequency of what you desire to attract into your life. The best way to start is to feel grateful for what you already have in your life. No matter what your situation is, find something to be grateful for. Keep a ‘gratitude diary’. List everything you are grateful for and FEEL the gratitude. This will lift your emotional vibration and it will in turn attract to you more of what you will feel grateful for and so on. Your vibrational frequency will be raised spiralling upwards, attracting more and more of the life that you desire.
6. Believing, Allowing and Patient detachment.
Once you have placed your order with the universe and you have felt the joy of having what you have asked for, then in order to keep your energy frequency, your vibration at the level needed, you must continue to believe that what you have ordered will manifest. It is when you let the slightest doubt creep in to your thinking that your vibration level will drop and you will stop attracting what you wanted. You need to believe beyond doubt. This allows the universe to deliver to you. Practicing patient detachment is one way of not doubting. If you want something so badly and you are very attached to the outcome it is more likely that you well let yourself for even a moment think, “Oh its no use this isn’t going to happen”, and by thinking that thought you stop what you want from coming through.
7. Track Your nine-year cycle.
This is often include in numerology books but is helpful to include this here. This helps in practising patient detachment when you can accept that there is a time for everything. All you want to attract into your life comes just at the right time when you are ready to receive it. This is sometimes a factor of what year you are at in your nine-year cycle. If you think of the cycle as having seasons, there is a new beginning in the 1st year. It is a creative year, a time for sow the seeds of something new. Year 5 of the cycle is when you start to get fruit from what you put in place in the first four years. The sixth year is the year of abundance when you can share the harvest with others. Years 7 & 8 are years of abundance and gratitude and the 9th year is a year of completion and getting ready to start a new cycle.

8. Listen to Your Emotional Guidance System.
It is your full-proof way of knowing what is right for you. When you quiet both the outside noise coming into you and the inside noise going on in your head through meditation, you can connect to your true self and your emotional guidance system. If something is right for you, you will feel a surge of joy or excitement coming from somewhere in the middle of your chest area or gut. If you don’t get a good feeling and in fact get a bad feeling then it is not for you. Trust your emotional guidance system and always refer to it before making important decision.
9. Practice Meditation, Creative Visualization and Affirmations.
Meditation and Creative Visualization are two techniques vital in communicating with the universe or source energy. When you quiet both the outside noise coming into you, and the inside noise going on in your head through meditation, you can connect to your true-self. Affirmations are a way of shifting your thinking and beliefs to accommodate new insights you have as you experience self-development and growth. They will are vital to all the above points you need to live an empowered life and to fulfil your destiny. These are all very powerful tools and techniques and are important in tapping into your own inner wisdom. Make them a part of you daily life.
10.Take the Appropriate Action.
The last step in attracting or manifesting what you want through the law of attraction is taking the appropriate action. Step one: you have asked for what you want; step two: you believe you are in the process of receiving it; now, step 3: you need to be alert when opportunities present them-selves. Seize those opportunities and take the appropriate action. This is the way you receive your order. Don’t doubt, use your emotional guidance system and take appropriate action with confidence.

Now Is the Month of Maying
Thomas Morley, 1595
(1557 or 1558 – Oct 1602)
Based on a text
Orazio Vecchi in 1590
(baptized 06 Dec 1550 – 19 Feb 1605)
Now is the month
When merry lads are playing,
Fa la la la la.
Each with his bonny lass,
upon the greeny grass,
Fa la la la la.
The Spring clad all in gladness,
Doth laugh at Winter´s sadness,
Fa la la la la.
And to the bagpipes sound,
The nymphs tread out their ground,
Fa la la la la.
Fie then! why sit we musing,
Youth´s sweet delight refusing?
Fa la la la la.
Say dainty nymphs and speak,
shall we play Barley break?
Fa la la la la.
