St. Dan Louis’ Web-Blog from Estella Vista, West Texas (written by St. Danny in 2009) fyi: DLD passed away on 11-22-2016

My older brother had a thing about numerology, anniversaries (Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories, etc.), justice particularly for minors with a real rough childhood, and establishing a safe haven for those that could benefit from “getting away from it (rat races) all” where the southwest Texas desert air and mountains offer a respite that will last an improved lifetime.

 

If you have never red any of his writings, now is the time to also pray that Dan L. has no more time to spend in purgatory, which he believed was only a Catholic myth. Enjoy his style and messages often hidden within the paragraphs and diagrams:

Colts fans want better, but the Steelers get to put the heat on Tom Brady tonight near Boston, Mass.

In addition to the opening game of the cheatin’ defending super bowl forty-niner winners (the alleged NFL-compliant New England Pats), there are nine better games to bet/wager upon:

  • Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania) Steelers (not the penguins, Panthers, Pirates, or there other teams)

+ 7.5 and over 39.5 at the Old England Patriots tonight, Thursday, September 10, 2015

  • Green Bay Packers (-14.5 and over 21.5) at Chicago’ Soldier Field versus the Bears on Sunday

Reno Nevada – Shameful Reno, Nevada and Their So-Called Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada (CCNA)

Coast-to-Coast Risk Management

Glenwood Springs, CO 81602-0777

Woodside, CA 94062-2448

 

Intro: Home is where the heart and body are; therefore the Reno ghetto Record Street neighborhood is home to hundreds of people of mixed races and religious views.

 

Fact and Question: The Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada (CCNA) have been given 100 grand for the homeless issues. What is this going to be used? I suspect almost nothing will filter down to any homeless people.

 

NIMBY = Not In My Backyard!

NIMBY = Not In My Backyard!

Why did the City of Reno do this? What else is the City of Reno doing, if anything?

 

In my opinion, the City should have given the Resource Center more than $100,000.00.

 

My experiences with the Roman Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada have all – all – been negative. Furthermore, I assert that they have been using the name of Saint Vincent in-vain!

 

St. Vincent DePaul Society is not affiliated with the CCNA.

The Worst Set of Restaurants at Any Carson Valley Inn (Minden/Garnerville, Northern Nevada) Ever — I might buy it, but I don’t have to stick it in my mouth and chew and swallow this cooked crap

First Friday, February 6, 2015

CVI = Carson Valley Inn Food & Beverage Poo

Maybe we should have eaten at McDonald’s.

Maybe we should NOT have ordered the French Onion Soup and Lobster Bisque.

Maybe we should have tried to call “room service” (no such thing at this casino/hotel/motel/RV campground).

What used to be the best in the west has been reduced by poor management and a winter windstorm to crap. Maybe I have to pay for the food, but I am under no obligation to either put it in my mouth, feed it to the seagulls, or stick it where the sun don’t shine.

Ultimatum in Northern Silicon Valley — A Final Solution / Exit Plan / Happy Ending — to Movie Script “Country Corner: Germ Warfare” for the ‘Kathy Bates’ and ‘Debra Winger’ Characters

Circa 2008 through 2015

 94025-6526

THE HUNGER STRIKE CONTINUES

 [Wednesday, February 4, 2015]

Prior to the release of:

  1. “Country Corner Market & Deli vs. Silly-Con Valley” (copyright 2001)
  2. “Country Corner: Germ Warfare” (copyright 2010)  and
  3. “Country Corner: 2020 – A Spaced Odyssey” (copyright 2015)

These female characters should sell their real estate that is within 100 yards (the length of most of a football or soccer field) of the Country Corner Market & Deli of West Menlo Park, Northern California (southern San Mateo County) by the beginning of Stanford Universities and the University of Michigan Wolverines’ football seasons or ELSE . . .

The screenwriters’ hunger strike began today (Saturday, January 24, 2015) before 7:15 a.m. PST.

In addition, the screenwriter will never set foot in this store ever again, unless . . .

Therefore, these two busyiness-meddling, “sexy”, gossiping, perhaps overweight, whatever-else, duh, post-menopausal women MUST sell-out AND leave this fine community that has probably the best deli, best wine selection, best three owners, best family-oriented business, best weather, best busy traffic, and best customers in the (North, South, and Central) Americas.

Failure to do so will result in guilt, anguish, anxiety, danger, and many negative consequences (that largely will be self-inflicted). Yes, you ‘Kathy Bates’.

And yes, you ‘Debra Winger’ character model; mother to the screenwriter’s only child; real-life icon to pre-schoolers.

To Be Queer is One Thing, To Be Both a Pervert and a Bully is Another

dateline: January 6, 2015

in the Cal-Neva Casino in Reno Nevada

I heard a dog barking, so I went to the bitch’s aid.

Her owner with a somewhat male companion were attempting to silence the annoying Chee-wa-wa by sticking her bony fingers in the dog’s mouth. Her apparently transsexual friend told me that she/he would kick my ass if I didn’t leave the casino.

The skinny ‘friend’ called me the f-word twice as I was walking away from both ‘girls’ and their two lap dogs.

Should I have called the SPCA?

GMOs . . . The Reality of It – by Jeffery Burke of Garfield County, Colorado

Genetically Modified Organisms

Throughout history, there have been changes made to our food sources to increase productivity of food supplies. Some of these changes have been beneficial, but the increase in genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is more harmful to our society than it is helpful. Throughout this essay, the destructive effects of GMO’s will be explained in further detail.

In the agricultural society, plants are being genetically modified for many reasons. Some benefits of this procedure are, “increased crop yields, reduced cost for food and drug production, reduced need for pesticides, enhanced nutrient composition and food quality” (Theresa Phillips PhD). By advances in this field the crops are also maturing faster. Let’s look what God says: “Genesis 1:11 And God said, Let the earth put forth grass, herbs yielding seed, and fruit-trees bearing fruit after their kind, wherein is the seed thereof, upon the earth: and it was so and the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, wherein is the seed

Thereof, after their kind: and God saw that it was good” (NKJV). God created the plants and animals in a certain fashion, and said it was good. Man should not be changing the natural order of God’s creation, especially when these changes will cause problems for mankind.

Americans get sick more often than Europeans and people in other industrialized countries. The changes made to crops and meat produced in the U.S. are producing unknown and possibly devastating consequences. According to Gmo-awareness.com, “Modifying one segment of DNA does not have a single direct result; instead it can cause a spiraling effect of unintended consequences”.

The modifications that many companies are making on crops, especially the Monsanto Corporation, are tremendous. They have introduced three specific types of strains; Bt Corn, Bt Rice, and GR Soybeans. These new strains have been brought about to prevent pests from eating the crop by killing the pest after taking a bite from the crop, such as “Monsanto’s “Bt” (Bacillus thuringiensis) corn, which was genetically modified to produce a protein that ruptures the stomach when ingested by pests” (Theresa Phillips). Imagine just what that might do to humans.

As early as the 80s, Monsanto and Novartis teamed up to over-power the farmers. “In the 1980’s U.S. multinationals (e.g., Monsanto and Novartis) bought small start-up companies developing genetically modified varieties of staple crops and prepared to commercialize these products within the next decade” (Chaia Heller).

It has been done, the small farm is just about gone in this country. In 1998, companies won the right to patent genetically modified seeds. This prevented farmers from sharing or saving seeds purchased from these companies. “One-time use agreements break a centuries-old tradition in which farmers save, select, and share seeds gleaned from plants, during harvest time (Chaia Heller). This has been the way farmers have done it since forever and it worked very well. By altering seeds genetically, large corporations have taken control of the natural process of food production.

“Modifying one segment of DNA does not have a single direct result; instead it can cause a spiraling effect of unintended consequences” (Theresa Phillips). Consequences, that possibly cannot be imagined. The Center for Food Safety (CFS) states the environmental impacts of GMOs will include an “uncontrolled biological pollution, threatening numerous microbial, plant and

animal species with extinction, and a potential contamination of all non-genetically engineered life forms with novel and possibly hazardous genetic material” (Theresa Phillips). This means, that when hiking in farm-land and wanting to pick apple’s to eat, how can one tell if it will be safe for consumption?

The following quote shows the effects of injecting the seeds of corn to create a new type of plant that acts as a pesticide, “Bt corn hybrids contain genetic material from one or several strains of Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). Bt is a naturally occurring soil-borne bacterium found world-wide.  Bt forms asexual reproductive cells, called spores, which enable it to survive in adverse conditions. During the process of spore formation, Bt also produces unique crystal-like, or ‘Cry’ proteins. When eaten by a susceptible insect during feeding stage of development, (as larvae), the crystal acts as poison” (Gerald C Nelson). By altering these plants with a contained insecticide, and then feeding animals and humans with the fruit from the plant, what are the consequences to the human population? It has been documented that this process can cause allergies in humans, also Cancer and by a fast food diet, it is more likely to cause diabetes.

Another example of the changes brought about by the introduction of genetically modified plants is in the Corn Belt. A recent study by the University of Iowa states that the pollen from Bt Corn could be detrimental to the milkweed plant, which is the larval plant for the Monarch butterfly. Two researchers stated in the ABC News article GM Corn Harms Monarch Butterflies, “John Obrycki and Laura Hansen said their research showed Monarch butterfly caterpillars were seven times more likely to die when they ate milkweed plants carrying pollen from Bt corn, compared to conventional corn” (Study). This is another example of the unseen harm brought by genetically modified plants.

Dr. Judy Carman of the Institute of Health and Environmental Research in Australia recently performed a study on the effects of pigs fed with GMO corn and soybeans. The doctor took a group of pigs and separated them for this study into two groups, one fed by GMO corn and soybeans, and the other a non-GMO diet. Here are her findings, Carman explains, “At a commercial piggery in the US, we took 168 just-weaned pigs and fed them a typical diet for the piggery, containing soy and corn, for 22.7 weeks (over 5 months) until the pigs were slaughtered at their usual slaughter age. Half of the pigs were fed widely-used varieties of GM soy and GM corn (the GM-fed group) for this whole period, and the other half of the pigs were fed an equivalent non-GM diet (the control group). The GM diet contained three GM genes and therefore three GM proteins. One protein made the plant resistant to a herbicide, and two proteins were insecticides. In short, this mixture of GMO foods led to a toxic mix in the digestive tract of the animals, leading to a reduced ability for GMO-fed pigs to reproduce. The pigs were studied from conception until slaughter (the first long term study of its kind) and all were all affected adversely” (No GMOS). The digestive tract of the pig is very similar to that of a human, and because of its shorter lifespan we are able to see an example of the negative effects of GMO foods on human beings.

According to the narrator in the movie Food Inc – a film by Robert Keener”, “The way we eat has drastically changed over the last fifty years” (Food). The McDonalds Corporation put such a strain on the beef market; in the 1970’s the top five beef packers controlled twenty-five percent of the market. Today the top 4 beef packers’ control eighty-five percent. It turns out they are genetically modifying the corn to mass produce and feeding it to the cattle. Please take note: cattle are supposed to feed on grass! Because the cows are feeding on corn the disease Ecoli has developed in the cows’ stomachs. The narrator goes on to explain that the fast food diet with this genetically modified beef is causing more cases of Diabetes.

Farms are mass producing the chicken and forcing them to grow so fast by genetic modification to increase the chickens’ breast size and the process results in chicken legs that are not developed enough to support them, and their organs also are not developed fully when they are slaughtered.

Many people will argue that GMO foods allow for greater production, and therefore, the ability to provide food to the third world countries. However, through-out this it has been explained that GMO’s can be harmful to the population.

Now you know the news on GMO’s it is your responsibility what you do with it. Just knowing what damaging food we are eating about makes me sick. My mind is telling me to do something about it, so here it is, please, please, please watch the movie Food Inc. and contemplate what you have watched.

Humans worry too much about past things or thinking about the future.

In many situations, dogs have a better idea of how to act in the present and have a better idea than we so to figure out what to do next.

We need to know not to treat dogs like humans because they are simply different animals than we are. Domestic dogs need closeness, touching, and petting to be content and happy.

Unlike people, affection and love is not what makes dogs happy. A wise master knows how to satisfy their dog’s instincts in order to make the pet happy.

Keep in mind that dogs are pack animals by nature. Wild dogs run around in groups.

You will be amazed how dogs use all their senses.

It is natural that people use the ears first and then their eyes to react to stimuli in the environment and learn from the world.

Instinctually, dogs rely first on their nose. Then they use their sight, hearing, and the universal sense.

People do not have this universal sense ability that “feels” energy and emotions of other animals, including humans, in the area.

Dogs have evolved very keen senses that are used to make decisions. It all starts with understanding the world with the sense of smell.

The human brain may be ten times bigger but the smelling parts inside dog brains are 40 times larger.  People have only about five million scent glands compared to a dog’s 125 to 300 million.

This means that a dog’s sense of smell is 10,000,000 times more sensitive than ours. Think of this next time you smell a fart sitting in the same room as your dog.
