The Cries That I Hear In My House

About 7 months ago me and my ex got into a really bad argument and I would cry, and I’d try to constantly get him to forgive me. For what? I had no idea. All I knew was he was mad at me. He was my best friend ever, and I swore if we were ever friends again I would never go back out with him.

So now we’re friends again. And before we fought he would come over and we would hang out under a small section that almost looked like a house without walls. It had a swinging bench and our friend Justin would put a chair on top of the table and sit on it. Now Keep in mind neither of them are dead. They’re very much alive. When me and Johnny were fighting I would sit on the bench and wait for him to come back. Sometimes I saw him perfectly clear next to me. But he didn’t say anything. So I started staying in my room more. I would cry …

I believe I was 12 when this happened. I always lived in the same house, the same neighborhood. My mom and I were sleeping in the same room (that night I was scared because I had a bad nightmare) all of a sudden we hear a knock on the door. It was 3:00 am, I said to myself ,”Who would be knocking on the door at this hour?” So I got up with my mom to see who it was.

My mom opened the door and we both saw a 55 year old man, he had some hair and he was clean shaven. The old man said, “Sorry to bother you at this hour but can I stay here for a couple of weeks?” My mom said, “Why?” The old man said, “I was in a crash two hours ago and my home is very far.” So my mom accepted his request and showed him where the bathroom was and lucky for us we had a guest room. So we gave him a blanket and …

My Strange Dream About My Late uncle

My uncle has passed away on June 2, 2008. He was like my best friend and I was hurt for his absence in my life now. When I was at his funeral I was hurt and sad. I told him in a low sad voice that sounded like I had a knot in my throat (which I did) I told him, “you promised me you was going to be here for me no matter what when I needed you, and I need you right now.”

After that I let out the tears I was holding back. I felt like he was there right beside me I wanted him to break open the coffin and say he was alive but I knew deep down that wasn’t going to happen.

Days later it was his birthday, June 22nd. We went to the cemetery and everyone in my family had an orange or black balloon (orange was his favorite color) and we all wrote messages on it and let them go saying happy birthday. I cried as I …

Well my story takes place in northern Manitoba in a little reserve called Norway house. It was just an ordinary day out with my friends at first we were skateboarding and got bored so we got some hot dogs and had a wiener roast. It was just me, Melissa, Heather, Brain, Greg, Travis, Jordan, and Marissa.

It was spring and there was three feet of snow left but it was still chilly and cold out. We were hanging out on a rock behind a few trees so people would not see us to much or bother us in any way. The rock we were on was beside a river.

Well after we had hot dogs we sat around on this rock. Just hanging out playing on the ice. After a while it got dark out but we stayed anyways just to hang out alittle longer. But one of my friends, Brain had to go home because he was not aloud to stay out late because of his grandpa, so he went home. A few hours …

I was fifteen and I had one really good friend. Her name was Kesha. We’d been good friends since we were in nursery and then we were living in a hotel with my parents as her parents had passed away.
One night me and Kesha went to bed at about 9:30 because we were really tired. It was midnight now and I was fast asleep when I got woke up by Kesha screaming. I asked what the matter was. She said she was having a nightmare of her parents coming to haunt her in the night. She really didn’t get on with her parents as they used to be nasty to her. So I got out of bed and turned the light on. Kesha was now shaking and she went pale. She started to cry. So I went and fetched my mum and dad.
When we returned into the room we saw Kesha. She was rolling around on the floor. We asked her what she was doing. She didn’t reply so my mum called the

Moving into our new home in California was so exiting because I used to live in England and never flew on a plane in my life. I thought it would be brilliant hitting the hot air. My mother loved this house in California and it was amazing my auntie from over there sent a picture of the house that was on sale and nobody lived in the house for years so we thought well its a 3 floor mansion with 8 bedrooms so we thought lets go for it.

Well we got off the plane and we got right outside of this gorgeous house. I couldn’t believe my very eyes when I saw this house it was beautiful until I thought so the house looked so friendly and very warmly outside until me, my mother and dad and sister took our first step into the house. It was so unpleasant, I didn’t feel welcome one bit and I felt so sad. My mother looked at me and said, so what do you think and I …

Was the Bible Influenced by Greek Mythology?

Posted by Roses on January 17, 2010

In looking at the many world’s religions, one can find similarities at nearly every turn in the stories.  Most involve the world being created by a higher power, a separation of that higher power from mankind, a great flood that covered the land at one time,  a human representation of that higher power, an emphasis on war and some way of redemption.  While myths differ from religions in that religion is a more all-encompassing term…many  mythological accounts of events, especially Greek mythology,  correlate with those in the Christian Bible.

Creation Stories – The Bible & Greek Mythology

Evolution of the Gods

Evolution of the Gods

There are differences in the creation stories…with some similar essentials, such as the world beginning in darkness.  In Greek mythology this darkness is called Chaos.  Chaos is the beginning of all things, and from this darkness came the earth (Gaea), Eros (which represented love)  and the underworld (Tartarus).  In the Christian Bible, God speaks and it is so.  Where in Greek mythology it is many gods who are responsible for bringing the world and …

Toothache Folk Remedies

Tags: , ,

Good dental care was a luxury for many people during the early days of this country, and sadly, it is a luxury that many can not afford today.  But, as always, folks did the best they could with what they had and treated a toothache in a variety of ways. Here are a few of them.

One remedy was to take a small amount of wine, or juice, from some poke berries and mix one part to eight parts of white whiskey, or moon shine, and take a small spoonful a day. (caution! Poke berries and the plant itself are poisonous! Only the early spring shoots and leaves of this plant are considered edible!) It was considered to be good for rheumatism and muscle cramps as well.  Another, and much safer, remedy was to pour pure vanilla extract straight from the bottle onto the tooth. There was another remedy called Bluestone that people sometimes bought and used because it killed the nerve… (however, this author is unable to find any information concerning what this particular …

The History Of The Eagles

Tags: , ,

The Eagles are counted among some of the best selling artists of the 70′s! They became a symbol of Southern California rock and roll and are still just as popular today!

Don Henley and Glenn Frey met in Los Angeles, California in 1970 while members of Linda Ronstadt’s band. They followed Ronstadt on a two month tour and afterwards decided to form their own band.

Ronstadt’s manager, John Boylan teamed Henley and Frey up with Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner with the intent of creating a back up band. The four musicians had other ideas and formed the Eagles!

The band signed their first recording contract soon after forming with Asylum Records. And, left for London with producer Glyn Johns to record their first album.

The self titled “Eagles” album was released in 1972 and brought the band three Top 40 singles. “Take It Easy” went to number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and took the Eagles to super stardom almost overnight!

Their other two singles from the album, “Witchy Woman” went to number …

Oil Pulling Folk Remedy

Oil pulling is a folk remedy that has been practiced in India for thousands of years, and is slowly making a rise amongst natural health enthusiasts in America.  Oil pulling uses, traditionally, either sesame or sunflower oil that is swished around in the mouth for about 10-15 minutes and then spat out.  It is said that this practice ‘draws’ out the impurities in the body through the gums helping the body to detoxify and regain a more harmonious and healthy state of being.

Many of the reported cures that oil pulling has produced are mouth and gum disease, diabetes, AIDS, liver and heart diseases, cancer, high blood pressure, etc.  When a scientist named Dr. Karsch decided to do the research he was surprised to find that when he did the oil pulling himself not only did it heal his own chronic blood disease, but it cleared up his arthritis. He put a sample of the used oil under a microscope and found thousands of organisms swimming around, presumably the toxins that were extracted from his …
