Oops... Big Cat Apology Required

Late night purrs, my righteous and ravishing Kittens... cold on the tame prairie, but still moderate... earlier this evening the moon hung as the most lovely silvery crescent in the black bowl of a sky... and this morning the eagles swooped above the south pasture... oh, and the resident yard bunny, moi saw him/her dash across the drive... yes, this Big Cat’s front yard is perfect for those cozy bunny hiding places.

KitKats, sink your claws in today? The Kougaress is feeling those times are upon us more and more... take care and protect yourself and your loved ones... for those of you who are especially challenged by the economic times, and need a new path... think growing good food anywhere and everywhere you can... also, think making alcohol... in the near future, alcohol will become a prized commodity... that is, alcohol will be wanted as much it was during the roaring twenties’ speakeasy days... PLUS, alcohol has many good medicinal uses, including herbal tinctures... ALSO!!! and maybe most important, alcohol can be a gas... meaning any kind of modern day machinery can be *run* on alcohol. Gas or BIG OIL is NOT NEEDED... no, our beloved country does not need Big Oil to run and run well.

Oops... Big Cat Apology Required ~ yes, on yesterday’s bloggie the Kougaress complained about how an insurance company was treating her mother... well, a partial apology is in order. Because of how the information was laid out in a letter to be signed, it was difficult to understand exactly what the bottom line info was... also, because of previous conversations with said company that were not too helpful at all... this Big Cat came to conclusions that were ‘not’ true... that, and the fact that, really, for the most part, the insurance industry, overall, is a rip-off operation. That being meowed, the problem seems to be resolved in as satisfactory a manner as can be expected in these times.

This headline for a fema gov article sounds rather ominous ~

Thursday Thirteen: 13 Erotic Sounds

From ~

On January 7th, the Sun will form a right angle with didactic Saturn. In the long run, this could improve your life, but for now, no more fun and games: it's time to get back to work.

Saturn is all about responsibility and learning useful and necessary, but sometimes hard life lessons. And right now, the Sun is shining a big, bright spotlight on this tough-love planet. Over time, this event will actually prove benevolent and will certainly work in your favor, if you do your part too. However, in the immediate future, Saturn has a lesson for you to learn and if you resist, things could get messy. The thing to remember is that Saturn reminds us to pull our heads out of the clouds, so we don't fall painfully into a dirty pothole later. Yes, you will likely face delays and setbacks now. You may even have to own up to a couple of mistakes. But at some point in the not-too-distant future, you'll look back on these events with gratitude.

With this understanding of how Saturn works, what are the next steps?

1) Stop whatever you're doing

2) Take a step back

3) Breathe

4) Look around until you can completely see the whole picture. Where do you see current or potential problems cropping up? Is it your job, your relationship, your finances? Maybe all you need is something as simple as a preventative check up for your health or your car?

5) Once everything is in view, determining what needs to be fixed and how to go about doing it should become apparent.

As soon as you address the issues Saturn is concerned about, you'll move forward with your life with more success and effectiveness.

To counter the severity of Saturn, the 7th will also see romantic, social Venus move into fiery Sagittarius. This is a great chance to grab friends and try some new activity (Rock climbing? Ballroom dancing? A new and exotic restaurant?). Or perhaps you'd rather throw some flamboyant party or get together. Regardless of what you decide to try, make sure you do something. You're practically guaranteed to have fun. You'll also find that it's more important than ever for your lover to be both passionate and to provide sufficient mental stimulation as well. The best relationships (romantic or otherwise) are always between best friends.

What Is 2011 In Numerology?

In Numerology, the Number of the New Year is called the World Number. How you find it is you break the year down to a single digit. Before you break it down to the single digit, you also want to look at each number in the year and how the Numbers are laid out.

In 2011, the 2 is about love, peace, harmony and coming together. The 0 represents divine intuition. If you trust your intuition, it will not fail you in the year 2011. The Double 1 is like a spiritual doorway, and if you look at the 11, it looks like something you could walk through. The question then becomes, what door do you want to walk through in this New Year Cycle 2011?

When you break down the Numbers 2011(2+0+1+1 =4), it becomes a 4. The 4 is all about the truth. It means anybody out there who has been hiding, or keeping a secret will be revealed. It is the year where people will see things for what they really are, instead of being deceived. I say to everyone out there, if you have not been living with integrity, be prepared to have to come clean in the New Year.

The other thing about the World Number 4 is it encourages you to learn. Maybe you have a job that you don't like, but there is a dream career you want, and yet there are certain skills you don't have. This is the year to learn them.

It is the year to take a class, whether it is online or a class you attend in person. Maybe you have always wanted to write a book, then it is time to take a creative writing class. Perhaps you want to be more physically fit, then this is the year for you to join a gym. I suggest you write down what your plans are in the month of January. What is it you want to achieve? In the Year of 4, anything is possible!

What is January In Numerology?

January (1) is a 1-month, and the 1 means you will feel it is time for change deep in your soul. Each big decision you make and act on in this month will set the stage for your New Year. You will start to feel stronger than ever. If in December, you felt you couldn't make any solid decisions, now is the time. The fog has lifted. Happy New Year!

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 739 ~

Sylva shivered with knowing. That someday, portals would be used on this Earth to travel between the different Earths... like a Sliders TV episode, but more like ‘beam me up, Scottie’. Especially, given what she’d already experienced and learned during her paranormal adventures with Zeke. “One step at a time,” Nevada uttered somberly. Then, he grinned, and repeated, “Yup, one step at a time.” Standing on tiptoe Ginger bussed his cheek with a big kiss. “I’m partial to being right here at home. Mostly. But a little otherworld traveling would be mighty fascinating.” Sylva smiled. “I’m partial to here, too.”

Zeke never felt so glad to see the ranch’s main buildings come into view. It meant he was almost home. “Home is where the heart is,” he muttered. “What was that?” Van hollered above the Speeder’s hum. “Home!” Zeke returned, then continued, “I have a snake-up-the-spine feeling it’s time to hunker down, and keep making improvements. Improve the ranch’s self-sufficiency. And, time to get even more neighborly.” Van sailed them toward the main landing area. “Been gettin’ the urge to make a cozier nest out of the house. Course, a bride of my own would make it whole lot cozier.”
