Yom HaShoah this year is tomorrow Monday, April 28, Note: Jewish holidays begin at sundown the day before, so after sundown tonight.
Yom HaZikaron laShoah ve-laG'vurah (יום הזיכרון לשואה ולגבורה; "Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day"), known colloquially in Israel and abroad as Yom HaShoah (יום השואה) and in English as Holocaust Remembrance Day, or Holocaust Day, is observed as Israel's day of commemoration for the approximately six million Jews and five million others who perished in the Holocaust as a result of the actions carried out by Nazi Germany and its accessories, and for the Jewish resistance in that period. In Israel, it is a National Memorial Day and public holiday. It was inaugurated on 1953, anchored by a law signed by the Prime Minister of Israel David Ben-Gurion and the President of Israel Yitzhak Ben-Zvi. It is held on the 27th of Nisan (April/May), unless the 27th would be adjacent to Shabbat, in which case the date is shifted by a day.

In Israel since the early 1960's, the sound of a siren on Yom Hashoah stops traffic and pedestrians throughout the State of Israel for two minutes of silent devotion. The siren blows at sundown and once again at 11:00 A.M. on this date. All radio and television programs during this day are connected in one way or another with the Jewish destiny in World War II, including personal interviews with survivors. Even the musical programs are adapted to the atmosphere of Yom Hashoah. There is no public entertainment on Yom Hashoah, as theaters, cinemas, pubs, and other public venues are closed throughout Israel.
In my opinion, this should be celebrated for all of the world for I have always been struck by what Reverend Martin Niemöller said;
"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out--because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me!”
Again, history has shown Democide since World War II has happened to; Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, Cambodians, Mongolia, many Eastern European regimes, East Germany, and Czechoslovakia, North Korea, North Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Cuba, Grenada, Afghanistan, Angola, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Nicaragua, and South Yemen just to mention a few and yes, we in the west have watched many others die because as the peaceful majority, we did not speak up until it was too little, too late! So lets’ all observe World Yom HaShoah together and maybe, just maybe, one day this madness will STOP!
GOD willing…

Both Russian and Ukraine Radicals in both Governments are the cause of this escalating violence. It takes both sides to escalate it and just 1 bullet to start a War!
I blame both and ask that everyone; TO PRAY FOR PEACE!
Also, "War Is Not Healthy For Children & Other Living Things" for War is really Hell and War is Immoral. You can't pretty it up by ignoring the truth. Bombs kill men, women, children, animals and plants; lots of them!
Because of War, all of our lives would have been totally wasted because nothing certainly, would have ever been gained by our deaths.
We owe it to our sons and daughters and grandchildren, and their grandchildren, to leave the truth about War just the way it is.
As we need to remind them all daily that “War Is Not Healthy For Children & Other Living Things”.
Just ask the children of Iraq, Afghanistan and many parts of Africa who know this much too well!

Let us STOP KILLING EACH OTHER, planting inequality & using in GOD's Name to do it!
Let us END Homelessness, Starvation, Disease, and create No More Uneducated etc…
What do workers gain from their toil? I have seen the burden GOD has laid on the human race. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what GOD has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of GOD.
Ecclesiastes 3:9-13

Who is going to assist the helper?
My wife almost past in the first Saturday in February and only through GOD, did she not!
It is true, we all face tragedy of one form or another in life and prior to this one of my children was abducted, recovered and I went on to help 407 parents who went through the same…
Then when tragedy hits you again, who are the ones that are going to help the helper?
It is just like you are on an aircraft that suddenly loses cabin pressure. The yellow masks drop from the ceiling. You are to breathe normally, as breathing too fast or slow can cause dizziness or blackouts. Oxygen is flowing to you through the yellow mask and there is no need to breathe quickly.
You are at all times to cover your face first and only after you have taken care of yourself. Do you grab a second mask for another passenger who needs your assistance!
Remember, that you should always put on your oxygen mask first, while working quickly and confidently with precision, while putting on the other’s mask.
I guess, I forgot about myself and now dizziness and mental blackouts for me have ensued.
My more enlightened Sisters and Brothers from the group I once belonged to have done their best to assist. Members of my religion as well, along with Doctors, Family, Friends and those who Love me!
GOD the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit know very well of my plight. They know that I am not the only one of those, who need help for the helper. For there are many, many, more, as I am really not the only one!
Yet, it feels this way, as I feel my own heart flutter, my chest compact, confidence slip and tears fall like dew off of the tips of plants, on a very fog bound morning.
Because you’re the passenger in the seat beside the helper, who cannot get their oxygen mask on themselves, as you can only watch. You wonder who is going to help the helper, which is you…

Does Love from your heart, dissipate like chimney smoke?
Or is it rock hard like granite, lasting for all of our eternities...
Do you stop Loving someone that you once Loved or have lost?
I think not, you store it in your heart and bring it out like a photo album.
To view and at times even share but it is stored and it never stops.
Can you Love more than one person in your lifetime,
or is your personality like that of a single railway track?
Never diverting only going one direction and never to be shared...
I think not.
LOVE, is like the spokes of a bicycle wheel.
Racing out to as many as one needs to move on and always centered back.
To the Love from your GOD intended it to be, for He put that LOVE in your heart...

When everything in your life is right on track, it's easy to believe that things happen for a reason; it's easy to have Faith. But when things start to go wrong then it's very hard to hold on to that that Faith. It's hard not to wonder for what reasons that these things happen for. Same with some people in your life, which you thought were friendly but they were only amused by you, did not care and never will, sad really...
I think ones LOVE that is unremitted for someone else and not returned, is because we consider our LOVE unconditional when we apply it to others and we then think that theirs might be considered reciprocal. Hence, this is where we make our first mistake, as people are not loyal subservient quadrupeds like dogs or cats. No worries, as we all do it! For it’s I believe, the first mistake we all make with the ones we LOVE most.
The only LOVE that we can really count on is GOD’s LOVE, for God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. As Jesus Christ was buried, then He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures—and is still alive, now that is LOVE, Amen?
Happy Easter From,

As the 2 speed machine was supposed to work. You filled it up with hot water from, the hot water hose for whites as I remember. Then after the appropriate time, you ran said clothes through the wringers, then rinsed out the washer.
Added new clean water and again ran this 2 speed wonder for an another appropriate set of time.
Let the now clean wash load go through the wringers into the clean wash tub and both times to collected the clothes from the rinse cycle to hang the upstairs to be hung on the clothes line.
If it was winter time my Mom had lines hung in the basement so that the laundry did not freeze brick hard outside in the -40F Calgary air.
Warning: Do watch what you are doing, when you are feeding the wringer part with clothes. We used a wooden spoon but to speed up the chore I just used my hand and hence, got it hung up in the clothes as it dragged sheets and all (my hand, arm etc.), into the wringer.
I of course screamed appropriately until the wringer part popped open as it was designed for fools like myself, in case of such an event!
I have always inside thanked the designers for this safety device ever since!



Canada sends fighter jets to Poland amid Ukraine crisis

NATO said today it would send more ships, planes and troops to eastern Europe to reassure allies worried by Russia’s annexation of Crimea but shied away from new permanent bases in the east as Poland wanted.
“You will see deployments at sea, in the air, on land to take place immediately, that means within days,” NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen told a news conference after Nato ambassadors agreed the measures
