Unpublished

There is a saying that spans cultures and quite possibly Time itself.

"If you perpetuate a single lie long enough, eventually you and those around you will come to believe it...", more or less.

Yet the twisted genius of this is that you don't even have to tell a lie, you may just misdirect attention so that a true fact becomes the whole fact; simply by not mentioning, or avoiding other true facts that are inherent to the original fact.

This is what has been happening for generations, and today has happened yet again.

Sadly, half of you reading this will get the point but miss the underlying message behind this, and half of that will miss the point all together, while the remainder has no idea what any of this means, at all.

April 28th, 2011; a day that will live in infamy... yet Who will remember it? And How?

Something to Soothe the pain ridden mind!

Whether you're in Japan toiling to get your community back in order, or are in Russia, Africa, Germany, or here in the U.S.of A., or any where in the great-wide World of ours, most will appreciate this:

Ewan Dobson  is by far one of the most talented guitarists of our time, and one of my favorites.

Candy Rat Records has a post of his song [Time 2] off his 'Ewan Dobson II' CD, on their Youtube account.

I am presenting this here to not only show you something that is amazing, but to give you a new perspective on the ability of a Guitar and a person with great talent!

Besides, for those of us who enjoy Trance, or other such genres of similar aptitude, this impressive piece is soothing and enjoyable.

All it really is, is an Acoustic Guitar, plugged into and efx processor with some Reverb and Echo added, The amazing part happens however when Ewan Dobson plays the Guitar.

See his video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXqPYte8tvc&feature=related



You can of course if you like this, get the CD & Guitar Tabs at http://www.candyrat.com; Please support the artist if you like his works!!!

New 7.4 Earthquake Japan!!!

My prayers go out to the Japanese people, having now to suffer through another Earthquake registering 7.4 on the Richter scale.

This one is again off the coast of Sendai, (41 Miles off the coast to be exact), the same area with the troubled Fukushima reactor.

A tsunami warning has been issued for Japan, but no threat is detected for the U.S. West-coast, Hawaii, Canada, and Alaska.

May the Japanese suffer no more of these trials and sufferings, and may they have the tenacity and strength to further weather these events.

Honor and Duty over Life...

So being one who has worked in the field of Emergency Management, I understand the necessity to save lives, as well as keep myself alive, so that I may continue to save lives.

It is almost a oxymoron, to rush into danger, to save lives when you yourself may in fact lose your life in the process.

Yet it seems to be an almost Universal ideology amongst all emergency workers, to do what they can to stay safe themselves, while dashing headlong into danger to save others.

A very heartwarming and yet very sad story occurred in Japan; where a Japanese Fire Fighter Fujio Koshita, rushed to his seaside station to warn the population of the impending Tsunami. The Electric was out, so He grabbed their hand held bell used for just such situations, and climbed to the roof of his Fire Station, and rang the bell until the Tsunami hit and took his life.

And this isn't the only act of heroism, just one amongst many...

There are still thousands of people homeless and without good food, times for them are obviously harsh and challenging, especially now that high radiation levels are being registered in their fish and sea water.

These stories of valiant behavior are good to have so that those that are in dire need of help have some Hope to uplift their downtrodden spirits.

If you have money to spare, you can check out [ these ] international services and donate a little to help out our friends in Japan.

If you are broke or on a limited income, just please take some time and watch a 35 second [ video ], brought to us by the creators of the Anime 'Dragon Ball' and 'Mr. Slump'. They have it set up so that each view submits a donation to help out those Japanese that are in need.

Also, if you know someone in Japan, or you know someone who knows someone in Japan, [ here ] are search utilities specific for those lost in the Earthquake and Tsunami

Another way to help the Japanese, is to continue or start to buy products that have origin in Japan, to help stimulate there economy, From video games, to cell phones, Computers, Cars, and even food, (obviously food from unaffected areas).

*If you are Chicago, IL local you can stop off at Mitsuwa Market, (a Japanese Grocery), on Algonquin Rd. in Arlington Heights, but they do also have stores in New Jersey, and California. Food, Candy, Kitchenware, Houseware goods, a Magazine and Manga store, a Video Rental, and a Food court with over 10 businesses selling Korean and Japanese foods and drinks.*

If you work Stocks and bonds, buy into some Japanese Company Stocks or Bonds, that will also help.

But give some help, for if we had a disaster of any magnitude here, we'd want a helping hand too.
