This is an old piece which is a salesman's sample of a china cabinet which I bought from a shop in Arcadia, NC. (Right down the road from the house.) I like the bowed glass front. I am using it to hold some of my favorite things. I have feathers, shells, dragonflies, stones, crystals, insect cases and seed pods amoung my many treasures. I love to look at them. The cabinet is small enough to stand on my bedroom dresser. Why, I enjoy these creations each day as I reach for my clean underware!
I must apologize for the pictures of the cabinet being sideways...I can't figure out how to turn them upright!

A Trip to the Beach

My friend, Kelley, treated me to a weekend at her condo in Myrtle Beach, SC. We attended a scrap-a-thon held at the Sheraton. We were inside scrap-booking for the majority of the day, and into the evening. After a day of working on our scrapbooks we were able to walk on the beach, and, since I rose earlier than Kelley, I was able to spend time out on the sand in the wee hours of the early morning. We also stayed a full day after the scrap-booking event was over. I tried to walk on the beach as much as I luck with finding any really neat shells though. (I really didn't expect to as Myrtle doesn't usually have many shells wash up along it's beach. ) I did bring home two nice Lady Fingers and many interesting pieces of shells. I placed them in my treasure cabinet along with my many other wonderful finds from previous outings I have made.

I wonder if NASA realized how much wind would be generated by their little experiment on the moon? (NC has been enjoying wonderful weather, with a warm soft wind blowing, for the last 2 days.....We will not discuss its "looking like snow" in KS).
I feel confident NASA has no idea of all the effects of hurling large chunks of metal and hazardous materials, at such great speed, and, with such great force, unto the lunar surface will have. Both here and there, now and later!
NASA's scientists, after much study and forethought, found our trash to be superior to the space rocks, which impact with the moon's surface on a daily basis, for producing a projectile to hit a specific target and produce a large enough plum from which to gather data. So, in the spirit of seeking knowledge and lunar domination, our government said, "What the heck, let's try it. If nothing else we will learn how much of our trash we can send to the moon!"
I suppose we will continue shipping our trash, in much greater quantities, up into the heavens. And, heaven knows, we can't continue to let it just float around up there! Why, it might collide with one of us! Besides, our oceans are thick with debris ... Why, pretty soon we won't be able to dump there for free and then what will we do?
I weep for Mother Earth and for Brother Moon!
