Weekly Photo Challenge: Time of the Season

For some color.  And it couldn’t get more vibrant than red!


Red for roses on Valentines Day.  And for the hearts!  It’s a very red day anyway.

There was also the National Wear Red Day that was celebrated or honored on Friday, February 5th this year.  When I was in Federal Service, we all wore red every Friday to support our troops.  We all should start doing this until every last soldier comes home!

The color red is the color of the blood shed on the actual day Saint Valentine was tortured and beheaded by an angry anti-Christ emperor named Claudius Gothicus that not only did not embrace Christianity himself, even though claiming to like Saint Valentine, demanded that he denounce Christ himself or be put to death.  He refused and Valentines Day is somehow an outcome of his martyrdom in the year of our Lord 269.  Strangely enough that emperor died of the plague, the following year.

On that same day, 1660 years later in Chicago another blood bath occurred known as the Saint Valentines Day Massacre.  Don’t some people just suck?!

Try not to think about it when you’re trading Valentine Day cards and giving your loved ones chocolates and flowers.  You are celebrating by doing the opposite of what this day had represented and isn’t that really what Saint Valentine would have wanted?  To continue the Christian tradition of loving one another.

God bless!




Stash Your Chocolate!

As the years go by people are becoming more aware of the health dangers of too much sugar.  There are even movements and laws being put into effect to “save us from ourselves.”  Good thing that adults are telling other adults what to ingest because the American citizens cannot have too many bureaucratic noses up their butts!

I’m especially fond of the inane idea that a local Mayor, who must not have any other significant problems such crime in their cities, would have the audacity to tell someone what size soda they are allowed to drink.  So they cannot have a large, so will they also be prohibited from ordered two smaller sizes?  They could just start sending someone in to get their food and drink for them, and that will give our state and local governments another ability to penalize and fine the citizens and make more money for the cities to squander shamelessly.  The absolute insanity that this type of legislation would bring could not be measured.  If a large pop were the only thing ingested and a person was reasonably healthy, there is no cause for alarm.  If a person was having a large pop with an ice cream sundae that is even worse.  So what will these lovely buttinski mayors decide to do next?  Let us know if we are allowed to have a dessert after our meal?  Make us weigh in upon entering each restaurant and start turning away those considered dangerously obese, especially from the fast food places?  It is only for the good of all the people!

The minute you see anyone in any form of government control trying to do something for the people’s own good, you better run and I mean you better run towards the perpetrator to fight for your rights as an adult citizen of these United States.

If this happens they will make us all criminals and I will be willing to die for my chocolate.  Make no mistake Bloomberg, you butt will be mine if you even look in the direction of chocolate.  I am making plans on stashing it if it should ever come to this.  I will of course, prepare my own.  Once they make sugar a controlled substance, I will have to turn to the new black markets and farmers “growing their own” sugar beets and cane.

They can take my life, but they’ll never take my chocolate!
