Toad Tales

I love Egypt. And in 1976 I
was fortunate to
 travel to Egypt.
 This is one of the places I visited.

The Pyramid of Djoser (or Zoser), or step pyramid (kbhw-ntrw in Egyptian) is an archeological remain in the Saqqara necropolis, Egypt, northwest of the city of Memphis. It was built during the 27th century BC for the burial of Pharaoh Djoser by Imhotep, his vizier. It is the central feature of a vast mortuary complex in an enormous courtyard surrounded by ceremonial structures and decoration.
This first Egyptian pyramid consisted of six mastabas (of decreasing size) built atop one another in what were clearly revisions and developments of the original plan. The pyramid originally stood 62 metres (203 ft) tall, with a base of 109 m × 125 m (358 ft × 410 ft) and was clad in polished white limestone. The step pyramid (or proto-pyramid) is considered to be the earliest large-scale cut stone construction, although the nearby enclosure known as Gisr el-mudir would seem to predate the complex.

Molly on Monday

 Molly here,   Here is what B G (Big Guy) was doing this week. He had his other eye worked on.  It was harder than the other one. He has been having to rest some more and his eye hurts a little bit.  So I am going to tell about Jessie again and then B G will show you how we build Molly on Monday.

 I had to get B G's attention in order to get the Blogging going this time.  I had to stare at him.  Eventually I got right in his face in order to get to work.

 We have to have a conference about what we are going to write about it.  I make suggestions to B G what to write about and then he tells me what he thinks I should say but I have the final say all the same.
 Sometimes I have to snap the whip because B G slips out and reads Facebook.  Then I grrrr at him.
 And then he will smile at me and we are copacetic again.

 Well I am going to rest now.  I am going to go to the garden for while.

Usually B G is a little slow letting me out. (He is old you know) Sometimes we try going to the garden but there is a dog who comes over to the neighbors and he comes to bark at me.  B G doesn't like that.  He doesn't like the barking dog. I don't either.  I won't what B G calls him (B G can be somewhat profane at times and he grumbles about the other dog and its owner.. but he does agree that it Sugar (the barker) is a beautiful dog.)

 I did get to go out to the garden and smell my flowers.  Have a wonderful day.

 The idea of one side suffering defeat while the other side triumphs is out of date. Instead we have to develop dialogue. We have to make an effort if we want a peaceful, more compassionate world. It requires education, based on patience, tolerance and forgiveness. Too often violence results from greed, so we also need contentment and self-discipline.  
Dalai Lama

Look into your own heart, and discover what gives you pain and then refuse, under any circumstance whatsoever, to inflict that pain on another.

16 And behold, one came up to him, saying, "Teacher, what good deed must I do, to have eternal life?"
18 He said to him, "Which?" And Jesus said,"You shall not kill, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness.
19 Honor your father and mother, and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
20 The young man said to him, "All these I have observed; what do I still lack?"
21 Jesus said to him, "If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me."

22 When the young man heard this he went away sorrowful; for he had great possessions.

I feel no need for any other faith than my faith 
in the kindness of human beings. 

~Pearl S. Buck

Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the whole earth revolves slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment. Only this actual moment is life.

The spiritual life is achieved only by listening to all of life and learning to respond to each of its dimensions.
~Sister Joan Chittister

As is your desire, so is your will.
As is your will, so is your deed.
As is your deed, so is your destiny.
~The Upanishads
