Sundown Fire in the Sky... and the Yellow Butterfly...


A Victorian Christmas setting... rather like Dylan, my hero's home in "Santa Baby, Several Stars Away".

Late night purrs, my generous and gorgeous KitKats... it would have been another lovely blue-sky, late autumn day on the tame prairie... but, during the afternoon when the Kougaress was both inside and outside, several chemtrails were laid down in different areas of the sky... they just can’t be mistaken out here given the panoramic view and with no airports close... when they stretch across the sky, no, it’s not a contrail. ~sighs~
~~~~~~

The red sundown fire in the sky inspired both awe and a sense of fright, while the yellow butterfly of late autumn inspired amazement, and a sense of confusion about the season.
~~~~~~

Bedazzler UFO Update: Yep, Jupiter shone with amazing brightness in the night sky. However, in the dark early morning hours... well, stars and plants don’t look like multi-colored rods, do they?

SANTA BABY, SEVERAL STARS AWAY

*Six Sentences* from Chapter Twelve: Seven Swans A-Swimming

“Ooooh, Santa Baby,” she whispery sang. “I’ve been an awfully bad girl, stealing into your home, so don’t hurry down my chimney tonight.”

Lightly -- but as if he had fangs -- Dylan bit her neck for several seconds. Kaily shivered within, knowing he marked her, the feeling unmistakable.

To her surprise, the primal pleasure intoxicated her even more. Yet buried deep, like keys dropped in several feet of snow, something nagged her.

Joy To the Wolves!

Happy Wednesday everyone. Today I am reposting the lyrics for a Christmas werewolf song. I don't know who wrote the words to this parody but you can sing it to the tune of Joy to the World and make everyone look at you like you've lost your mind. Ah, the joy of Christmas!

The Alien Broadcasts of 1957
Wednesday, November 30, 2011

UFOs have been causing problems for CERN in the form of mysterious rapid beam lights dumping "dust particles" on the Collider. Strange things happened in the past as well: Thanks to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, the National Security Agency (NSA) has declassified a report from 1957 saying that 29 mysterious signals were received and verified as being "of extraterrestrial origin."

On the Before It's News website, Terrence Aym writes that "a NSA specialist named Dr. Howard Campaigne was given the responsibility of choosing a cryptology team to work on cracking the alien messages. The task was compartmentalized and many who worked at the NSA had no idea that such a project--or even the messages the team focused upon--existed.

"Although many of the documents they received were heavily redacted with page after page blacked out, several separate documents that were released from the NSA contained snippets of information--clues--that some sort of alien message had been intercepted during the late 1950s."

This document has been dismissed as a cryptography exercise, but the details were never released, nor has the actual signal been made public. The document was released on the NSA website, so there is no question of its authenticity.

ALL HAIL THE PEOPLE OF NORTH DAKOTA ~ The Kougaress hopes this comes about and creates a model for all of the states.

From the POWER HOUR ~

The Secret Revolution in North Dakota

North Dakota citizens may abolish property taxes, allowing them more control over government spending. Nearly 30,000 signatures were collected to place the people's initiative on the ballot in June, 2012 that would constitutionally abolish all property taxes in North Dakota.... If the initiative is successful, North Dakota will be the first state to abolish all property taxes, both state and local, and will provide a model for the other states to do the same. North Dakota may be the first state to kick off the property rights revolution!

BIG CAT CORRECTION ~ There are NO fetal cells in Pepsico, Nestle and Kraft foods/products at this time, as far as anyone knows. However, for the rest of the story check out the link below. This Big Cat cannot in good conscience endorse using fetal tissue as the company, Senomyx, is currently doing. This level of anti-humanism is dangerous. Their type of research while appearing on the surface to be possibly a good thing is actually very dangerous to overall health. The body needs to know ‘real’ levels of salt and sugar ingested so that it can function properly. Potentially fooling the body with the ‘taste’ of salt and sugar can kill you. Since your electrolyte balance if severely affected means death.

From the POWER HOUR ~

Many of you were very upset to hear that companies such as PepsiCo, Nestle and Kraft Foods were contracting with Senomyx, a biotech company that uses aborted fetal cell lines in their research to discover new flavor enhancers. DEBI VINNEDGE has been fighting tirelessly to get the word out about this abominable practice knowing that if enough of you out there boycotted and wrote letters than perhaps we, as a united front, can stop this now!

Through the prism-colored atmosphere...


Late night meows and mews, my bedazzling and beneficent Kittens... a beautiful blue sky on the tame prairie today... and not super cold... a flock of tiny brown birds has been around for a few days now... they’ve been around in times past, however the Kougaress hadn’t observed them until recently... they are so adorable... the little tiny darlings.
~~~~~~

Through the prism-colored atmosphere, Jupiter, the planet, looks like a Christmas tree in the night sky, while the spider silk of early afternoon reflected rainbow colors appearing magical.

The Timber Wolf and the Black Cougar, Calendar Cowboys
by Savanna Kougar

“Dante’s calendar shoot this year was a real howl and hoot.” After a long and guttural laugh, Zance threw back his head and howled. To his satisfaction the sound reverberated throughout their four-seater pickup truck.

Dontoya yowled a drawn out chuckle, but still kept an iron hand on the steering wheel. Zance always envied the sound of his longtime ranch partner’s laugh because the women would crowd around him, their tongues nearly hanging out with lust.

“Yep, pard,” Dontoya drawled, “the shoot was a dang party without pants. Instead of in my pants. You know -- how we both get hard-ons from hell whenever Sherilyn is around.”

“Yeah, just thinking about our little spitfire...” Zance resettled himself so his cock wasn’t challenging his zipper quite as much.

When Sex is Mind-Blowing
Tuesday, November 29, 2011

A middle-aged woman was admitted to an emergency room with amnesia, unable to remember anything about the past 24 hours EXCEPT having had sex with her husband an hour earlier. Does this mean the sex was very good--or very bad? Probably neither--what's called "transient global amnesia" is a rare condition in which memory suddenly (and temporarily) disappears.

Nobody knows what causes it and it affects only about 3 to 5 of us per 100,000 people every year. In LiveScience.com, Stepanie Pappas quotes neurologist Sebastian Ameriso as saying, "We don't know very much about the cause. It causes a lot of alarm, but this is not a stroke or an event that causes damage to the brain. It's almost always very benign."

Weekly Angelic Forecast from Volcano

Straight from the Carnal Cherub himself...

Angelic Forecast ~ #169

For the following week, the theme is ‘home is where the heart is’. Now is the perfect time to explore what ‘home’ really means to you. This is also an ideal time to search for another home if there is a nudge from your Inner Guidance.

During the next three months, many people will be ‘moving’ to a different location that calls to their soul. Also, many people will be leaving their current relationships to form new relationships and new families. As well, some will return to the fold, as in returning to their families of origin.

This is due in part by the need to hunker down in this great time of turmoil. Metaphorically, the gloves are off now. And this has become a bare-knuckle world -- the good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly. The more you are with others you trust, and who trust you, the better life will be for All.

Another major transitional shift will begin this week. This can be seen in the turbulent events that take place around the worldwide financial debacle. As the face of evil is further revealed, a mighty backlash against the ‘soulless ones’ will sweep across the globe like a raging tsunami.

There is likely to be a dramatic increase in earthquake activity for the next six months, and volcanic activity will follow. There are few safe areas because Mother Earth is changing her landscape. Also, super duper weapons are being used in weather and tectonic warfare in a battle to dominate the world.

Look for ‘more’ shocking events to unfold midweek. As well, from this point forward every excuse will be used to bring in a draconian and militaristic control over the people.

On the personal economic front, be aware the game has changed, and will continue to change at a rapid rate. The more you can remove you and your family from the system, the better off you will be in the long scheme of things. Banks will continue to fail, and some of them cannot be relied upon. Use your money wisely at this time, and plan for the future in a realistic manner.

Trendwise, seek out ways to celebrate the holiday season that are truly meaningful to you, and those you love. What has been is crashing down and coming to a quick end. For those of you not currently living in a rural community, now is the time to look at returning to a simpler and more sustainable way of living.

This week is all about taking advantage of good opportunities that come your way, especially if they include family and friends. This is also a magic time to find the right love partner.

Calendar Boys

“Dang it, Lamar,” Jamie said, “of all the fool things you ever talked me into, this has gotta be the foolest.”

“Chico, I haven’t even scratched the surface of all the foolish things I want to talk you into. This, however, isn’t one of them. This is for a good cause. Tell him, Bo.”

“You heard the man,” Bo Ewing said. Like Jamie, he wore a simple terrycloth robe, though his was several sizes larger than Jamie’s. Like Jamie, he was naked beneath it. “Dante’s pin-up calendar makes a ton of money for local charities every year. You want to tell the kids at the hospital they won’t be getting a new dialysis machine because you got cold – ” He eyed Jamie’s groinal region and finished with a chuckle, “Feet?”

1:11 am... it’s all about the money...

Warning, my darlings. The collapse of the economy is on the drawing board. Contrary to the popular belief that a healthy economy is desired by everyone, and all is being done to bring about a recovery. No, not true. The psychopaths who run the world behind the scenes want to bring the economy to its knees. Why? Create the problem to bring out the reaction, then offer THEIR solution. So be careful out there, Those at the *top* of the financial pyramid don’t give one flying damn if you lose your savings, your pensions, or anything else you have in the bank.

Very eery moments for the Kougar today. In her 2012 angelic fantasy, WHEN A GOOD ANGEL FALLS, the heroine, Sedona, is recalling a recent incident where a man was arrested for jaywalking and labeled a terrorist because he ‘allegedly’ impedes the progress of a Nazzerazi vehicle. Now, today, this afternoon, the Kougar heard an outline of the bill currently before the Senate that would allow American citizens to be exterminated at the will of Homeland Security [including by order of the prez], as people are now being murdered in Pakistan, if the person is deemed to be an enemy of the state, a terrorist. This is without any due process, as in a jury trial. Nothing. You might as well paint a bull’s eye on yourself. Anyway, the bill stated this would also include *jaywalking* as an offense that could get you marked for death as a terrorist. This Big Cat can tell you the shivers took over her insides, and they haven’t quit. Yep, Orwellville is here.

On the good news side, the Kougar is doing a bit more polishing/editing on SANTA BABY, SEVERAL STARS AWAY as she waits for her cover art. She is also looking at possibly penning a short New Year’s story to Indie pub... but that’s only an idea at this point. And time is really short. So...?

New Ferret-Badger Confirmed Discovered in Vietnam

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 24th, 2011

A species of ferret-badger (pictured above) hitherto not known to western science has been found in a national park in the central Vietnamese province of Ninh Binh. It was announced in the German scientific journal Der Zoologische Garten.

Tuoi Tre newspaper on November 23, 2011, noted the non-profit organization PanNature as saying that the animal, Melogale cucphuongensis sp.nov, belongs to the genus Melogale, which has four species – together known as weasels — and is mainly found in Indochina, Java, Bali, and parts of Borneo.

On another shopper just to ‘win’ the discounted prize... whatever it was?

“We live in Orwellville” ~ the Kougaress heard this said today, and, yep, she absolutely agrees. Everything is so topsy turvy and so head-spinning insane these days, she is often at a loss to cope with it... okay, and according to some higher-ups across the pond pedophiles should be able to adopt and raise children... what?!!! While ordinary couples with a newborn are sometimes forced by the state to have a camera installed in their home when they’ve done ‘nothing’ at all to warrant it.

A Soul Rising Thanksgiving


Happy Thanksgiving, my Beautiful Big Cats... the Kougaress was in a cuddly mood... thus, this adorable pic of Teddy Bear Pilgrims.

So, what is the Kougaress most grateful for right now? Beyond her family, friends and pets... beyond the tame prairie and whatever good food can still be found? She is grateful for everyone who stands and lives for freedom -- past, present, future. She is grateful for every good deed done -- past, present, future. She is grateful for the truth and whoever brings forth the truth -- past, present, future. She is also grateful for beauty in all its forms.

A Soul Rising Thanksgiving ... despite the stampeding rush for Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday savings... this year, the soul is rising as never before... it won’t be about the typical gratitude list. No, many of us will become aware of ourselves as higher beings. We will have insights into our larger potential, and this will ultimately have good consequences for us all.

If you search your dreams from childhood, those shining dreams of what you wanted to be, and do... there lies the kernel, the seed of you as greater than you ever believed you could be. That is, believed as opposed to imagined. Since imagination can take flight beyond the stars of possibility... the stars that will eventually become possible to humanity.

Date Night

A little silliness inspired by a random-act-of-conversation with my teenage son and by my cousin's reaction to seeing this movie. The other night while listening to two DJs argue on the radio about what kind of people watch the Twilight movies, my darling son had what I call a 'flight of fancy'. If the word 'vegan-pire' gets stuck in your head, blame him, not me. Not only can I NOT take credit for the startling detour in logic that created the term, it's now stuck in my head, too.

...the red-tail squirrel flaunted his winter fur...


Late night yowls, what a long day, my getting-ready-for-Thanksgiving KitKats... yep, the Kougaress went out hunting for the stock-up necessities today... gosh, it’s so grueling in these times, even when things go relatively well... and then! This Big Cat was so concerned about the state of the tires, and the heater core that she actually forgot to put the gas cap back on... fortunately, she puts it inside, and it was there when she got home, and it wasn’t as dusty as usual... so, maybe nothing got ruined. ~sigh hopefully~

The whole *need a good man* mantra becomes all too clear as to why that saying came into being originally, given how it is in these times. Yeah, the Kougaress so wishes. But she’s out of luck in that department.

Darling Kittens, be aware. More and more the gloves are being taken off to speak metaphorically. This is becoming a bare-knuckle fight world... the good side, the bad side, the beautiful side, and the ugly side... the bare-fisted brawl is here.

Weekly Angelic Forecast from Volcano

Straight from the Carnal Cherub himself...

Angelic Forecast ~ #168

For the following week chaos and rage will own the streets, and the entire world will appear to be falling apart. Simultaneously, a new spiritual nature emerges, and will be most recognizable at the grassroots level. This is because all those of good conscience are coming together to help each other, and work toward a greater Good for everyone.

This week, the fraud that has taken over the system will be your greatest enemy. Take heed to follow your own Inner Guidance. This is more crucial than ever when protecting yourself and those you love.

At this time, be aware that the rate of social change is accelerating. And like a herd of stampeding elephants anything in the way will be trampled. You have three choices: Fight it and be trampled. Step out of the way, and learn what it takes to survive and thrive. Or, three, leap astride an elephant and enjoy the wild ride.

Even though, the major events that take place during this Thanksgiving week will not be tame, the rise of the renegade spirit continues. Surprising new expressions of this rebellious spirit will occur, and grow throughout the year, 2012.

With the economic war between the global elite escalating this week, watch out for the ‘metaphorical’ dead bodies falling like Autumn leaves. For one thing, the world’s supply of available gold is nearly gone. That is, what has been sold on paper does not exist.

Once again, there will be odd happenings in the space program, and in space itself. Nothing will be told to the public except for misrepresentations and outright lies. However, as has been said before, the truth is out there. And will be leaked.

The most important thing about this week for all of us, is that old standby, LOVE. Whatever loving act you can do for someone who is ‘truly’ deserving... this will mean a better world for all of us, because the goodness will ripple outward forever.

Trendwise, this week of Thanksgiving encourages our gratitude. Search your heart to discover what you are most grateful for. This may ‘not’ be what is considered the ‘right thing’, or the popular things to be grateful for. However, what ultimately matters is that you find out what resonates as real and sincere gratitude.

This week when someone shows you kindness, let them know you are grateful. It’s all about spreading the universal love.

Folk Hero
by Pat Cunningham

“He rode into town from ages past, one of a kind, he was the last, his steed of choice was a pickup truck, he was looking for either a fight or a – ”

“Hey!” the saber-tooth tiger broke in. “You want to write a song about me, fine. Just keep it clean. And accurate. I don’t even own a pickup truck.”

“It’s a country song,” the bison retorted. “It’s gotta have prison, a pickup truck, and your mama in it.”

“Here’s a better idea. Sing about something else. Talbot’s Peak doesn’t need to hear ‘The Ballad of Steel Saber.’ That’s not even my real name.”

Lovingly the cardinal male watched over his adorable mate...


Sunday into Monday Thanksgiving greetings, my slenderific but very curvaceous Big Beautiful Cats... the chilly winds swept in last night and it stayed cold on the tame prairie instead of warming up to the temps predicted... a light mist rain is falling now, with possible rain in the forecast... gosh almighty, no, this Big Cat has no clue how to adapt to these times... it’s a wing and a prayer, baby... and the Kougaress only wishes she had wings... still, she will continue doing the best she can in this upside down, run-by-psychopaths-world.

Beauty is preserved in the heart where it lives forever...


Saturday into Sunday meows and purrs, winter-preparing Big Beautiful Cats... warm on the tame prairie today, and the Kougaress got more outside stuff done... however, now the cold is here, the wind starting to bite... at midday the Kougaress watched blustery winds jerk and toss skeletal limbs caught in the woody stems of a huge vine... if it had been at midnight, well spooksville, and a perfect scene for a scary story... because it was definitely spooky looking.

A Woman From Sergei's Past
by Solara

Anna flopped down on the tree limb she’d climbed up to. Too long, far too long, she’d been without a pard or place to call her own. The mountains of this place called Talbot’s Peak spoke to her heart. Even the distance call to her soul from her place of origin could not stop the longing and need she had to be one with those who accepted her and what she offered.

Who will make money? Online bookstores, yes. But the largest chunk of the pie in those e-book figures I gave you above now goes to the traditional publishers. And if writers continue to sign away their profits just to get a book published traditionally, then that chunk of the pie will grow.

Note: The facts as laid out by this author is one more reason why the Kougar has no respect for the Big Boy publishers, and in fact, despises most of them!!!

This was sent by Firefox in their newsletter. The Kougaress agrees. If this passes that means *instead* of e-pirates being prosecuted, the little guy and gal will be banned from internet usage on the flimsiest of excuses. You know like the unfortunate soul who is fined or jailed for grass over three inches. Or the kids who have their lemonade stands raided because oh-no they don’t have a license to sell, like they ever needed one before... or gosh, sin of sins, your city car sticker is a smidge off the designated location, so they slap you with a huge fine. Yep, no chance in a court of law now. No due process. You can be fined, jailed and thrown off the internet. Yep, if this passes there will be NO opportunity for real justice.

Fight for the Internet's Future

Right now, the US Congress is considering legislation that could profoundly affect the future of the internet we all know and love. It's called the Stop Online Piracy Act, but the fact is that it won't accomplish that goal. Instead, it will impose new, far-reaching consequences for us all. Here are just a few of the ways it could affect you:

Every single online communications platform — from YouTube to Facebook to Amazon — could be under threat if a single rights holder alleges a violation.
It would make the Web less stable and secure.
General-purpose social media sites, like Twitter or Facebook, could be forced to track and control user behavior, chilling innovation and undermining free expression.
Your internet provider could be required to inspect all of its users' traffic and browsing.

Mozilla is joining with many other Internet companies and public-interest organizations to urge members of Congress to reject this legislation. We urge you to email your representatives in Congress today. And then please join our ongoing efforts to fight this legislation and ensure that the Web remains a thriving platform for innovation that's open and accessible to all.
~~~~~~

BTW More depressing news. More and more, the effing UN is taking over the National Parks. No, it’s not for the sake of the animals or the land. That’s only the cover story. Not only do people need to Occupy the cities, and take over all the empty houses... but, more importantly they need to occupy the Land in our beloved country!!! and take it away from the UN troops.

Piles of dry crackly leaves carpet the ground...


Late night mee-yows, my sweet and spicy Autumn Kittens... oh-so cold last night! And chilly today on the tame prairie... the Kougaress got some yard work done trying to prepare for winter... she’s been looking at alternative ways to heat the house in case there’s a power outage, like a propane heater... but, gosh, then you have to worry about enough ventilation... and while she would like to have a wood stove, it’s not like this Big Cat is going to turn into Paul Bunyan anytime soon... and even if she tries to go solar, with all the overcast days, is that really going to work?

Nothing about the upcoming winter feels easy... sighs...
~~~~~~

Piles of dry crackly leaves carpet the ground becoming black gold, soon to nourish Spring’s new growth.
~~~~~~

Bedazzler UFO update: So, the Kougaress is still attempting to figure out what the Bedazzler is... it doesn’t act like a star except when it dims to a white bright point in the sky... it doesn’t move across the sky like a star, even though there are changes in position, although not always similar to the previous night... also, the Bedazzler has been hanging around when the stars are out, and when they’re not.

Could it be what is being called an Echelon Platform? This is a huge black-ops type of platform vehicle thing, discovered by UFO enthusiasts, that uses solar power and hangs above Las Vegas and other cities. According to what they discovered, every type of electronic communication -- computer, cellphones, ipad, etc. is monitored from this platform, and the data stored. License plates are read, so, yeah, big-brother sky net is on the job evidently. The Echelon platform is sort of like an ultimate spy-info collection device.

Speaking of sky net, the scuttlebutt is from insiders that there is an AI, low orbit satellite that is capable of turning against humans and taking over. So far, several of the engineers working on it have been killed by this satellite... according to the rumors.

Central Casting
by Pat Cunningham

It took me long enough, but after close to a year of writing (and avoiding writing, but that’s another blog) I finally finished Legacy, my sequel to Belonging, and sent it off to Siren, who were kind enough to accept it. I’ve never denied my male leads were inspired by Sam, Dean and Castiel from Supernatural – or, in my version, Jeremy, Wallace the vampire, and the mysterious slayer known as the Preacher. (I chose that particular photo because the Preacher favors black. Tan trenchcoats tend to stand out in the dark.)

Prescriptions Kill More People Than Cars
Thursday, November 17, 2011

Did you know that drug deaths now outnumber traffic fatalities in the US? In 2009, they killed almost 40,000 people nationwide.

While most major causes of preventable death are declining, drugs are an exception. Prescription pain and anxiety drugs are potent and highly addictive and are especially dangerous when combined with one another or with other drugs or alcohol. Prescription drugs now cause more deaths than heroin and cocaine combined.

The death toll from drugs has doubled in the last decade, killing one person every 14 minutes. In contrast to this, traffic accidents have been dropping for decades because of huge investments in auto safety, such as airbags and anti-lock brakes.

In the September 18th edition of the Los Angeles Times, Lisa Girion, Scott Glover and Doug Smith quote public health expert Linda Rosenstock as saying that the liberalized prescription of pain drugs "may in fact be the cause of the epidemic we're now facing."

They quote police official Laz Salinas as saying, "The problem is right here under our noses in our medicine cabinets."

The authors quote researcher Amy S.B. Bohnert as saying, "It's a wonderful medical advancement that we can treat pain, but we haven't figured out the safety belt yet."

Special Note: My darling kittens, get everything out of the bank you have NOW, and use it to prepare for what’s coming down. Consider using a small local bank, or credit union. Why? Check out what happened to Gerald Celente, and others. Keep only what you need to pay bills, etc. Money is being stolen right and left from accounts. Bank boxes are being raided. You cannot TRUST the system. Get out as fast as you can.

An Ale By Any Other Name...
by Rebecca Gillan

“Blast those… those fools! Don’t they realize they are standing in the way of noble progress?” Lex swore. The urge to crumple this ill-fated letter and hurl it in the snow was so strong he forced himself to put it down. He needed to keep this offensive letter for his records.

“What is the problem, azizam?” Lex looked behind him toward Dori, his once-fianc√© and current… something. He wasn’t sure he really wanted to rekindle their long lost love, but Dori and his own traitorous heart weren’t giving many choices. Not that he wasn’t still fighting—he had no intention of just rolling over for the beautiful Persian goddess. She broke his heart thousands of years ago and she was going to have to do a lot of groveling to get it back. Nor was he going to share his frustrations with her. Niether she not the monkey-child, Marissa, fully appreciated his brewing genius. He would wait until Mooney, Marissa’s wolf, returned from whatever errand he was running. Mooney would support him he was sure.

From Phantomimic’s Website ~ phantomimic.weebly.com/2/post/2011/10/the-999-boycott.html

If you are considering publishing your book on the Amazon Kindle you may want to be aware of the 9.99 Boycott. This is a movement within the community of Kindle readers that, not only refuses to buy e-books priced above $9.99, but also will assign negative tags to your books with titles such as “outrageous Kindle price”, “too expensive for Kindle”, “greedy publisher”, or “9.99 boycott”. And the more your book sells the more these tags are voted on. Some of the boycotters will go as far as leaving one star reviews on your books based solely on the price.
***
Where did this number come from? Apparently when Amazon got started with a Kindle device that cost $400 their sales pitch was that readers could save $20 per book by buying e-books at $10 ($9.99) instead of the hard cover for $30.

BIG CAT COMMENTARY ~

In a follow-up to the gruesome news on yesterday’s blog, at first a representative for Pepsico verified their use of fetal tissue in their products. However, now the company is saying they are using fetal cells ‘only’ for testing food additives... so, what is the truth? And, who would trust them as a corporation, or trust the corrupt FDA’s approval process? Regardless of what the truth is. Not to mention this Big Cat CERTAINLY DOES NOT want such testing done on aborted tissue. Not only is it unnecessary, it demonstrates NO RESPECT, absolutely no respect for human life. Yes, this Big Cat is for a woman’s right to choose. However, this practice of using fetal tissue in this way is utterly immoral and highly dangerous to the health of human beings. Also, sadly, women have been used and abused by what has become the abortion industry, used and abused in the most reprehensible ways.

When Magick Rises Once Again
by Savanna Kougar

Hearing the crackle-rustle of autumn leaves, Zalasdair halted and watched the cottontail rabbit dash away from the intruding human. In this case, the intruding warlock.

The young buck rabbit ran as if a demon grabbed for his tail, and Zalasdair admired his speed. Likely he would survive despite the large population of wolven, big cat, and other predator shapeshifters.

Zalasdair used his force and that of the Mother Earth to gift the rabbit with greater speed and more endurance. Afterward, he closed his eyes and silently intoned his gratitude to Gaia for their deep connection, one that had lasted since the end of the Mage Age -- as Zalasdair thought of it, to his sardonic amusement.

“What prize-ass fools,” he darkly muttered. With a twirl and flick of his power staff, Zalasdair spoke the short incantation destroying the satellite tracking him. “Machines are never a match for magick.”

Mars and Jupiter Take You Soaring!

Sometimes, the stars align themselves so perfectly that everything naturally falls into place for you. And tomorrow, that's exactly what Mars and Jupiter plan to do!

On November 16, Mars (residing in Virgo) forms a genial alignment with Jupiter (currently in Taurus). Mars and Jupiter are a pair of fiery planets, and both promote action and progress. Jupiter is an idealist, bringer of good fortune and dedicated to helping you grow. Mars is determined, motivational and never backs down without a fight.

When these two planets get together, they offer you the courage and conviction to move forward with your greatest dreams. In fact, these planets normally tend to dream a little too big, which in turn can tempt you to bite off more than you can chew. But not on this day of perfect alignment! Virgo and Taurus, both earthy signs, will be there to ensure that Mars and Jupiter remain grounded enough to keep your own ambitions realistic.

The result is that you'll enjoy a day primed for idealism, action, enthusiasm and the potential to set your dreams into motion! Don't let a perfect day like this go to waste -- get out there and do something exciting!

November 16 is your chance to move forward with your life in a big way...

Okay, my darlings, this is JUST gruesome! Pepsi uses fetuses for flavoring. It’s been out in the news for the last five months. Mygawd!!! Is this Big Cat glad she hasn’t had a Pepsi in probably twenty years. Nor has she used any of these products for the last several years. Have mercy!

Products and Companies that use Aborted Fetuses

If you use products created by Nestle, Kraft, Cadbury, Starbucks, PepsiCo, and until recently Campbells and Solae, you are using products created in part by aborted fetuses. That's right, aborted fetuses are used under the name of "artificial flavors" in these products.
