A longing for beauty...

Here's an absolutely beautiful creation from artist, Simon Beck.


Man-Made 'Snow Circles'
February 24, 2012

This 'snow circle' from France may appear supernatural, but it actually has a decidedly terrestrial origin. Artist Simon Beck creates his intricate designs by foot, using snowshoes after mapping the designs out with surveying tools and some of the more elaborate creations can take up to five hours to complete. More on the story, including many more images of Beck's creations, can be found at the Daily Mail.

Saturday into Sunday maows, my darling and daring Big Beautiful Cats... once again the moon and her companions, Jupiter and Venus, are splendor in the twilight sky, then ongoing splendor in the dark of night... but, what a partly wacked out day! Good lord and pass the gravy... like last year, probably at about the same time, this Big Cat has to wonder if she can make it through the year... yee-owws!

The following reflects thoughts the Kougaress has been entertaining for about a year now. She believes this to be true. And, nope, she has no proof. Only logic, intuition and other-life memories.

Offering a radical new perspective on the Great Pyramid of Giza and all the structures surrounding it, including the Sphinx, Scott Creighton and Gary Osborn demonstrate how the designers of Giza intentionally arranged these massive structures to create an astronomical time line recording catastrophic events in the past as well as warning later generations of the precise times of future catastrophes. They reveal how the Old Kingdom pyramids of Giza were created, not as tombs for the pharaohs and their queens, but as “recovery vaults” to ensure the rebirth of the Kingdom of Egypt after a global disaster by acting as storehouses for ancient Egyptian culture--its tools, seeds, art, and sacred texts.

Okay, Kittens, this was one heck of interesting show, especially if you like rock 'n roll history... the history you probably didn't know about at the time. ALSO, there's a fascinating update about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy... my, my, the plot and complications never end, do they? And, how many former presidents have been implicated now?

The Wrecking Crew/ Open Lines ~ ~

Date: 02-24-12
Host: Ian Punnett
Guests: Open Lines, Kent Hartman, Russ Baker

During the first half of the program, Ian Punnett welcomed author Kent Hartman welcomed author Kent Hartman for a discussion on 'The Wrecking Crew,' a group of the largely unknown and uncredited studio musicians who played on countless classic rock songs. This coterie of artists, he explained, consisted of about two dozen LA-based musicians that were highly skilled at playing rock music in the 1960's. This proficiency led to record labels having them play in the recording studio rather than actual members of many well known rock bands. Since the band members provided the vocals and went on tour performing the songs, Hartman said, the record companies "didn't feel like they were totally lying to you."

Hartman detailed a number of instances where classic songs featured the Wrecking Crew's work instead of the actual bands which were credited with having played the music, including the Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations" as well as the Grass Roots' "Midnight Confession". He also shared the story of how producers actually refused to allow the Byrds to record "Mr. Tambourine Man," since they were considered "novices and incapable of playing at studio quality." As such, the album version of the song consists of the Wrecking Crew's work alongside Roger McGuinn, the only band member allowed to participate. Hartman noted that the recording of the song only took a handful of takes. Conversely, when the Byrds insisted on playing their own instruments for their follow-up song, "Turn, Turn, Turn," it required over 70 takes and days worth of studio time to complete.


During Open Lines, Sid in Abilene, Texas shared the story of two strange encounters from his youth. He recalled seeing a kangaroo in a pasture in front of his house and, later, a six foot tall rabbit in the same area. The kangaroo, he said, was hopping up and down and "kinda waving his front arms at me." Sid expressed mysticism over the nature of these odd events. Other callers included Peter in Minnesota, who recounted his own "pretty scary" experience hearing the "mysterious sounds" phenomenon and Leonse in Louisiana, who was puzzled by how the Piri Reis map could feature a detailed depiction of Antarctica's coastline. Meanwhile, Manuel in Stockton called in to note that, 70 years ago to the night, the Battle of LA was unfolding over the skies of Los Angeles.
O'Reilly & JFK

In the first half hour, author Russ Baker reacted to Bill O'Reilly's impending book on John F. Kennedy which claims to reveal "why his life was cut short." Baker traced O'Reilly's interest in the JFK assassination back to work he did as a newscaster in Dallas in the 1970's as well as later reports on the TV program Inside Edition. According to a former pundit from Fox News who spoke to Baker, O'Reilly frequently tried to do stories on the Kennedy assassination but "top ranked people" at the network "kept stepping on the story." While it would appear, based on his previous work, the book would lend credence to conspiracy theories surrounding the assassination, Baker surmised that "if Bill O'Reilly wants to keep his career at Fox, he is not going to be revealing anything."

Family of Secrets


A longing for beauty... The Kougaress was looking out her fave window, and enjoying the beauty of her tame prairie. She experienced this painful longing for more beauty in her life, to live the beautiful life she envisioned for herself, once upon a time. In her follow-up reflections, she thought of all the horror GMO crops that are destroying Mother Earth, the beauty of her human population, destroying her plants and the soils they live in, and destroying the animals/insects... like the honeybees... and she had to wonder: Why kill the beauty of Mother Nature? Why kill beauty at all? No 'being' in their right mind would do this, except as a simple matter of survival as in a predator catching prey to eat. But, why this insane compulsion to destroy beauty? But then, there are some people who will bring another individual down simply because they are jealous, envious, and can't achieve to that individual's level. Some people will destroy what they don't understand. While the Kougaress certainly enjoys the trappings of beauty, inner beauty has only been more important to her. In these times, it has became more than obvious that there are so many who don't understand inner beauty. THEY are doing everything by using their dark-side powers to destroy beauty and inner beauty?

A Passionate Welcome Home
by Solara

Josh stomped his feet and blew into his hands. A burst of cold air wormed its way down the neck of his parka, icing its path over his shoulders and billowing out the insulation keeping him warm. “A week in warmth. I want to go back already.”

Anthony’s muffled laugh reached Josh as he worked the key from his pocket. “It’s not funny. You didn’t get one hell of a sunburn or deal with peeling and itching for two days.”
