Ron Paul: That Ted Cruz Is Owned By Goldman Sachs, But Sanders Has A Libertarian Streak | RedState
Ron Paul attacks Ted Cruz and praises Bernie Sanders

You know, I don’t like Ted Cruz, I don’t trust Ted Cruz, and seldom have anything nice to say about him and his quest for ego at any cost…

That said.

On his worst day, even with the VAT, Teddy is still a billion times more libertarian than Bernie could ever be. In fact, with the exception of Trump I think we can all accept that everyone running is more libertarian than Bernie. 

I think we just need to accept one simple fact.

The Pauls are fucking crazy. 

Even when we sleep we watch over each other
And this love heavier than a lake’s ripe fruit
Without laughter or tears lasts forever
One day after another one night after us.
—  Paul Eluard, “Even When We Sleep.”

There is a book of Linda McCartney’s photographs that Paul McCartney put together called, Life in Photographs.  We were looking through it one night and Dean said “You know what I love about these photographs? Things are messy”.  I took a second look at the pictures and felt a sense of relief.  They look like a life, real life, well lived with all of it’s creases and imperfections.  In gardens, I feel this same sense of relief.  There isn’t much we can tame, a flower will reach for the sun.

Flowers show us how to love what is wild.  They make their way for months from a seed to something that can look like a weed. As they reach maturity, their blooms surprise us and bring real joy.  I plant hundreds of flower seeds in the gardens. Yesterday it was bachelor buttons and poppies, today there are wildflowers and sweet peas to be sown. I plant flowers to bring the bees but also, for the pleasure they bring.

Growing a variety of flowers in our own gardens allows us to have something wild, something beautiful always close by.  

Whether you are working in your garden today or making plans for plantings once the snow has melted and the soil has warmed, be sure to include all kinds of flowers.

Wishing you a bountiful and beautiful year in the garden!

Egyptian Bronze Shell Weight

Egypt, 21st Dynasty, 1090BC-945BC., a round bronze weight with scallop shell in relief on top. In detailed high relief. Weight is 72.5 grams. Size is 1  3/8" in diameter. Paul Bessey Collection.

This weight is one of the earliest pieces we will likely discuss on this blog, not only because coinage had not yet been invented in the 21st Dynasty, but also because I am by no means an expert on ancient weights. However, I did recently attend an excellent panel in San Fransisco on weights and measurements and their relationship to state formation and authority.

This weight was sold at auction back in 2011 as a single object, no doubt because of its attractive imagery, but in practical use this weight was almost certainly part of a set, matched with larger and smaller weights so individuals could assess any number of products.

Shells are a popular motif for weights, and they appear in the Roman Republic among the forms of early aes signatum/formatum “coinage”. It is not clear in that case if they were exchanged as “money’ proper or as basic bullion. This example is clearly a weight but, like the Roman examples, may have been cast from the mold of an actual scallop shell.

What do you think about Joe and Mick being in a relationship? (to Paul and Topper)

“We don’t actually mind it all that much.” Paul said. Topper then sighed “There is one problem.”

The two pointed at Mick and Joe, lovingly gazing into eachother’s eyes, holding their hands and being overly cutesy and lovey dovey.

“They’re that really annoying couple.” Paul said “You know which one we mean, right?”

January has not been a good month for old rock stars. We lost another one yesterday with the passing of Paul Kantner at 74. He was a guitarist, singer, songwriter and founding member of Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship. He also fathered a child with Grace Slick. This Kantner song was written about that child and appears on the 1970 “Blows Against the Empire”, the very first Jefferson Starship album. Here is “A Child Is Coming”. RIP Paul. 

Birthday boy cake adventures!

Post summer 2015. Paul and I are playing Game of Life (we love boardgames)
One of the cards asks Paul to describe his dream cake.
“A mint aero flavoured red velvet cake!”
I immediately got my brain to thinking howo I could make this work for hiss birthday (end of November)

The time came, I baked, I almost conquered, and the above result emerged!

Having never made a cake using real chocolate or even attempted a red velvet cake, I has thrown myself in the deep end here!
The resulting cake was a little too moist, but the icing came out great, I’m almost pleased with my handwriting!

Paul accidentally matching the cake on the day was a nice toucch too!

As you can see, Paul looked as please as punch with his cake, so I’m calling this a success!

One of the mistakes we make in handling God’s Word is that we reduce it to a set of directions on how to live. We look for directions about relationships, church life, sex, finances, marriage, happiness, parenting, and so on. We mistakenly think that if we have clear directions we will be all right. But we keep getting lost! All the wise and precise directions given to us in Scripture haven’t kept us from getting lost in the middle of our personal “big city.” The Bible cannot be reduced to a set of directions for successful living. This does violence to the very nature of the Word of God and robs it of its power. The Bible is the world’s most significant story, the story of God’s cosmos-restoring work of redemption. The Bible is a “big picture” book. It introduces us to God, defines our…

Going through my pictures and seeing this picture brings me happiness. Nov 10, 2012 when I turned 20 years old. I had such a great night with my siblings. I have no clue of what we were laughing lol but we were clearly having a great time. Meño💚, a person that we don’t really connect but we always manage to have a good friendship.
Paul💛 one of the greatest person I know. He’s the most caring person ever. The most protective person ever. I love him, I love him a lot because he’s always there no matter what. A real brother that would put you first than himself. The brother that would beat up a girl if someone is jumping me, the brother that stays up till I get home and make sure I’m okay. Can I be more blessed?
Kevin💜 My spoiled brat but wasn’t with me this day. That has been so far the only birthday that I didn’t spend with Kevin or my dad.
I’ll be nothing without these 3 kids! I love them to death❣❣❣
