By now you realize I don’t like bullying in any form, abuse, (mental and physical) and violence.
Today I want to share thought that a lot of people don’t seem to realize.
Well the thing is I don’t share anything that I believe will hurt someone. Sure I see those pictures on Facebook and from emails with people from Wal-Mart or some other public place but I never forward or share them, I don’t believe it is fair to them or their family. I also don’t leave anything on my wall or anywhere if I believe it will hurt someone to read it, especially lies. It is bad enough when someone hurts you or your loved ones, but worse when someone you don’t know allows hurtful things and lies to be visible for everyone to see. It hurts those involved to know that it is there. It is like announcing to the world that you agree with bully and believe all the lies.
I believe that promoting such actions just makes it harder to stop the bullying (the bully will see it as sign you believe it is ok what they are doing). People talk all the time of how they believe abuse is wrong but allow the abusive statements or pictures to remain or even spread it. On Facebook I usually report the pictures or statements as offensive and in some cases abusive. With emails I just delete them.
What I am trying to say is that we must practice this daily, everyone, or kids will see it and believe this behavior is acceptable. It is not acceptable! Just like gossiping or telling lies, someone is getting hurt.
Well that is it for now; I just needed to let that out. I wish people would realize that what they say and do (and not do) affects others.
Thanks for listening, will be back later,
You have to see this movie. It is from 2011 but it has some great learning opportunities for children and adults as well. It is informative and shows you how one small thing, one small mistake, can change your world in a second.
I like the fact that it points out how it is possible for young people to get access to the internet and how stupid mistakes can cause real damage and real pain to others. It shows you what can happen when you don’t think first. The two responsible for getting the ball rolling did not realize what damage could be done.
My advice is to watch this with the young people in your life. It is a great starting point for a great conversation. Gives you a chance to communicate with these young people and show them what can happen. Also you will get an idea on how these young people really feel about what is going on around them. It may seem far-fetched at some points but reality is stranger than fiction. So I recommend it highly for the whole family.
The movie is from 2011 called “Cyberbully” starring Emily Osment and Kay Panabaker.
Cyberbully (An ABC Movie)
To me it is one of the best ways to approach children about bullying, the dangers of following the crowd and the internet.
Check to see if it is playing on TV in your area or maybe rent. Plus while I was looking up the movie I even found a “CYBERBULLY Conversation Starter” kit. Click the link to download the conversation kit. J
Here is the site for movie information. http://abcfamily.go.com/movies/cyberbully/
Well time for me to go. Hope you can catch the movie!
Thanks for your time,

Today I want to share some things I found. I know they have been out for a while but there are those who have never seen them before. I found some videos that are very creative and will make you laugh. Of course they involve cats.
The first one I found a while back it is called “N2 the Talking Cat” (with friend Kona) It is so nice to see people finding a way to make others smile while playing with their cat(s). Now I never watched them in order but they are truly funny, really love them. Here are a couple videos and will post N2 sites after the videos. One of my favorites is:
and seeing Kona play in N2 the Talking Cat S1 Ep 4!
There is one with her playing with a sock, Hilarious!!!!!
N2 the Talking Cat sites: http://www.n2thetalkingcat.com/ ,https://www.youtube.com/user/VersaBC and you can find
N2 the Talking Cat on Google.
Today I also found Simon's Cat, which is an animated series about a cat. Very creative and obviously the creator is very well acquainted with cats. I have watched a few of them, and I will save some, allowing me to watch more when I really need a good laugh. J This was the first one I saw and I watched about 5 more. :} this is the first one I watched:
This is Simon's Cat site: www.simonscat.com
and on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/user/simonscat
Now here are some of the new kitties at the Cat Adoption Centre (please share someone in my area my see them and adopt one), I even got a couple videos of them playing. :)
I took this one sideways thought I could turn it, but I couldn't :(
But these to cats are laying not fighting, the black one is Sienna, the one I posted here before, she is about 8 months old.
Here are some of the kittens playing plus some stills.
This is Sienna again. J
Well it is time for me to go right now. Will be back later. :)
Thanks for visiting,

Hi everyone this is for Ming, my mother's cat who left us this morning to join my mother at the age of approx. 18 yrs. Bye Bye Ming. L
My beautiful mother left us April 24, 2011 (Easter Sunday) at the age of 71 years young.
Bye Bye I love both of you!
Well hello again!
Today’s topic is a little different. Today I want to talk about how humans treat their fellow humans.
Now we are supposed to be the highest form of life on this planet but I don’t know how we got this far. The things we do to each other are appalling. If we are so evolved how can we do, what we do to each other?
I could list many things here but I will just name a few.
In the name of Religion we have waged war killing and maiming unknown numbers of adults and children alike.
In the name of Love people have killed their family’s and/or themselves.
In the name of Fear one race murder and enslaves another. Men beat up women, women beat up mean, and some beat up children.
In the name of Money companies have knowingly build faulty buildings, equipment etc. Some have even put products on the market knowing the dangers these might cause to their customers.
In the name of Power they have lied, cheated, mislead and even killed to stay where they are.
Now if you were a being looking down on us, whether it is God or an alien, what do you suppose they think of us? It can’t be good. I am a human and trust me I don’t think very high of us, the human race.
In the wild most animals treat their own kind with respect. They only kill (normally) for food or to protect their young. In the wild they have the excuse of only the strong will survive and breed. We are not animals as “evolved” beings we have no need for survival of the fittest. The fact we can think and create allows all the right to survive. The weakest physical person you know may also be the smartest or the most creative or even the most compassionate person you know. So why do we treat each other so badly?
Maybe first we should learn to treat the people around us with respect. We should treat everyone the way we want to be treated.
Here are examples I see round me, we don't need to act or treat others like this:
Why when you walk in to a store or business it seems like they are always trying to convince you to buy something you already said you didn't want? Or a sales person says no pressure you’re not obliged to buy or sign anything? Or you go to a doctor and he/she says you need this operation but then gets mad you want a second opinion?
One of the most common I see is blackmail, not the kind you see on TV(although I see this on there too), but the kind you see around you, we learn it at a young age, like: Well if you don’t get this now, I can’t offer you this deal tomorrow. Or if you say that about me I will say that about you. Or if you don’t cover my shift for me, don’t expect me to ever cover you when you need it. And another common one guilt trip: if you don’t do this for me, I will lose - raise/job/car, put whatever you like at the end of that statement. My favorite peeve is customers in a store like a dryer cleaner or drug store or restaurant who say to the people serving them, why isn't it ready, or it took to long or you never have enough or any at all, I will not come back. Why say that to the person serving you? think before you speak it probably is not their fault, what you said was to hurt them and make you feel superior.
This is terrible, how can we teach children to do unto others, as you wish done unto you, when they are learning this? Or expect countries to get along when we can’t even get along with our friends, family, and workmates without bullying or mistreating them?
What will it take to get people to see what is in front of them. We have to stop this behavior in ourselves and others. Don’t let people take advantage of you or those around you. Stand up to them. Show them that no matter what, you know what they are doing is wrong. If enough do it maybe we can change things.
It takes a lot of little choices to change the world, each choice against this behavior is a chance for the future.
Take a look around you the next couple of days (sadly it might not take longer than a day) see if you see what I see. It might surprise you.
Well I never like to end on serious so here is something to make you smile:
and these I got from animalsilove
(you could spend all day looking at the pictures here!)
Thanks TC for showing me the site I got these from!
These are from:
Thank you drope by again:)

This is going to be short. Can’t seem to get the right words today to describe how I feel. With the weather (which has already claimed lives) including one poor sole in Toronto, Ontario who was hit by a Staples sign, and reading about the animals at Marineland that are not being looked after the way they should be. But I don't see articles about them fixing anything only plans for changing laws.
Than seeing this article:
Seems to me I just read about them killing wolves because they where blamed for killing cattle. If they have problems with population control why don't they put the wolves somewhere that has plenty of food. (wolves-slaughtered-in-combined-hunts)
Everywhere I look tonight I see such bad news. :(
But I did find some nice things to share.
So will be back later, come back soon.
