Birth of an Angel

Once upon a time there was a child ready to be born. So one day, he asked God:

They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless? Among the many angels, I chose one for you. She'll be waiting for you and will take care of you.

But, tell me, here in Heaven, I don't do anything else but sing and smile - that's enough for me to be happy. Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you everyday. And you will feel your angel's love and be happy.

And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me, if I don't know the language men talk? Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak.

And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you? Your angel will place your hands together and teach you how to pray.

I've heard that on earth there are bad men. Who will protect me? Your angel will defend you - even if it means risking her life.

But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore. Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way for you to come back to me - even though I will always be next to you.

At that moment, there was much peace in heaven. But voices from earth could already be heard and the child, in a hurry, asked softly:

Oh, God, if I'm about to leave now, please tell me my angel's name.

Your angel's name is of no importance.

You will just call your angel, "Mommy".

The Cricket and The Beer Bottle

There must be some kind of planetary vibe going on with my Saggitarian first house, because for the past few days, I have slipped into a philosophical mode, looking at daily, ordinary events from a metaphorical standpoint.
Over the weekend, while sitting on my patio, just enjoying the evening, listening to the birds as they began to wind down from their daily chirping, something very odd happened.
Not really a partaker of alcohol, but on occasion, I enjoy drinking "a" beer, and had finished it, leaving it on the patio table.
Although, our torches were burning, to keep away the NC State Birds (Mosquitos), an energetic little cricket had managed to hop onto the table.
Crickets are really strange insects, with the male being the one that does all of the annoying chirping! According to my research, they have two melodies that they use, the louder chirp is for calling females and telling other male crickets to "bug off"! The softer chirp is the "courting chirp", when the male cricket is wooing the female.
After watching the cricket for awhile, I left the patio shortly and returned later to find that the cricket had managed to find it's way onto the mouth of the beer bottle that I had left sitting on the table.
Well, it turns out that this cricket was a male, as it started chirping very loudly and suddenly slipped into the opening, falling into the beer bottle.
Sucks to be Jimmy! Should have been with Miss Katydid and you'd be here today!
After several futile attempts to retrieve the cricket, he succomed to a lethal dose of alcohol.

Philosophical: Alcohol is a deadly drug for a bug!

Note: Count the chirps of a cricket for 15 seconds, and add 39, that's the farenheit temperature!

Belief O Matic

While doing some research today, I ran across this rather unique widget at
It's called the Belief-O-Matic.
Couldn't help but laugh because it immediately reminded me of the commercial for "" with David Carradine as the YP Guru. Everytime I see that commercial I crack up....and "Grasshopper" comes to mind!
For those of you that don't know who I'm referring to...David Carradine portrayed the ass-kicking holy man in the TV show "Kung Fu". The setting was "western-cowboyish", and he was a chinaman, complete with an adeptness in martial arts.
Too bad, Belief O Matic isn't advertised on prime-time, perhaps, Carradine would be the key person for the job!
