I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

MWK Retreat West Coast and more


Well to start I will be spending some time with other men on the West Coast Men Knitting Retreat that will be hosted at the Point Bonita YMCA. This is going to be a lot of fun!

"Are you a knitter or a spinner who happens to be a guy? Would you like to meet other guys who share your passion for the fiber arts? Would you like to learn more about knitting and spinning techniques from othercrafty guys?"

This will be the place for you, there will be crochet as well. As a good crafter it is good to know both sides of the fence meaning Knitting and Crochet, there are plenty of sub-divisions within the crafts to keep you busy for years to come, add a bit of spinning and you can be in your house and never come out lol!

Democracy and Justice for all. I am not a Republican, nor Am I a Democrat, and I am definitely not an Independent. I am a Citizen of the United States of America that votes his mind. Sometimes it seems that the USA is behind times, yet we forget that we are a very young Nation.

Why people don't want health care for all? Is it wrong to want a basic necessity in life ? Is it socialist? Maybe I can label it that way, but I rather say it is nice to know that I won't go bankrupt, hungry or lose my house because I became ill or one of my family members became ill. Maybe if we take the Health Care program from the Representatives and Senators and President and give them a basic minimum wage, I bet you that they will appreciate life a bit more and what is to be earning minimum wage and relate to people like us, but that will never happen, and that will not be socialism will it? Let them try to pay rent, eat and have a health plan with minimum wage!

I believe that this country has been smacked in the face with the worst economy that I can remember in my lifetime, who is to blame? I really don't care, I want it fixed! The politics became so negative and some candidates became people they were not, some trying to instill fear into people, trying to say things that were not completely true, just look at the North Carolina Mrs. Dole, saying someone was godless, does that matter when running for office whether you believe in God or not? That is the kind of thing that most people got tired of hearing. People don't like to be intimidated and have name calling even from people from their own party. I think we need to have at least 4 or 5 different parties, but Ralph Nader calling Obama Uncle Tom, wow, that was so racist and stupid, it took the cake for me!

I am going to close this with an optimistic look in art fibers and Democracy, Life Will be better from this moment on, believe that and concentrate of becoming a Great Nation once more, just for our own sake. We shall thrive as individuals and as a Nation, we can reach for the stars and become a different planet. Animals will be treated humanely before we eat them, that will make a difference, people should never mistreat animals. If this means that we won't eat as much meat as before, so be it. The prices can not be higher than the ones for Organic Beef and Free Range Eggs, I get it maybe people will start buying those because it is cheaper and a new economy will be born. Optimism and Reality hand in hand, let's get our nation out of the dependency of Any oil.

I am only waiting for the Vulcans to land on Cape Canaveral real soon! Utopia Planitia Shipyards. The Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards, or Utopia Planitia Shipyards, is a key Starfleet vessel construction and design facility in the 24th century. It is partly positioned in synchronous orbit 16,625 kilometers above the Utopia Planitia region on Mars, including the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yard's planetary construction facilities. , What about terraforming Mars and Venus who knows. Maybe we will find Tholian Silk and life will be different when we have Food Replication technology! Let's eliminate hunger, poverty and disease from the planet, may the Gods of Kobol bless our new journey. I want a better future.

On April 5, 2063 at 11:15 AM local time, Cochrane made Earth's first warp flight, playing Steppenwolf's "Magic Carpet Ride" during blast-off and dedicating the first flight to Alcubierre and Obousy, early pioneers of warp physics.[1] The Phoenix's warp signature is detected by a Vulcan survey ship, the T'Plana Hath, which then makes peaceful first contact with humans, including Cochrane, at the Phoenix's launch site.[1] In the Mirror Universe, rather than reciprocating the Vulcans' peaceful greeting, Cochrane and the other humans kill the Vulcans and loot their ship. Maybe I will be alive to see something like this happen! Receive my love everyone, QaplaH! Thanks for stopping by.

I agree with you So, so much on the healthcare!! I honestly do! I have preached the same things, liketaking the Health Care program from the Representatives and Senators and President,,,, boy, would tha open their eyes!! And, something else I want to add, this winning election isn't about African-American history, it is AMERICAN history. I have already seen commebnts on the net about this campaign and African-American history.
Live long and prosper, dude!

Coming from the UK I'm lucky enough to have access to free healthcare, I too don't understand why people don't want free healthcare for all. I've read comments from people on other sites saying how they don't want to spend THEIR money on other people; surely the current economic crisis shows us that even someone with lots of hard-earned cash can end up with nothing and might one day need a helping hand from a kind stranger.
