the Butler and Sunday nights Sunday, Jan 26 2014 

Re: the Butler It’s a well done movie, but it didn’t give me goosebumps… It did point out the difference between the older “don’t rock the boat” generation and the “freedom riders”.

On TV On Sundays we have all the heavy hitters on at once. Downton Abbey, the Good Wife, sometimes Sherlock and True Detective vie with each other.They are all superb. Thank heavens for On Demand. Also may I say this seems to be Matthew McConaughey’s year

my favorite stone Turquoise Thursday, May 9 2013 

from the site Emily gems the meaning of Turquoise

Turquoise Gemstone meaning

Turquoise is one of the oldest protection amulets, and was also known as a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures.


Strength, protection from harm, psychic sensitivity and connection to the spirit world


If given a turquoise by a loving friend, that stone would protect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune. The turquoise is the symbol of friendship. It also brings peace to the home.

This stone is a very personal and meaningful stone to one who wears it. Turquoise takes on the characteristics of the owner.

Turquoise carries great wisdom of basic truth within it. It is one of the oldest stones known. This is a stone that a person must learn to attune to instead of the stone attuning to the person. It is important that the owner of a Turquoise give it the proper attention.

Healing properties of Turquoise


  • Neutralizes overacidity
  • Alleviates rheumatism, gout, stomach problems, viral infections
