Meeting General George Patton / MANY Other Wars to Fight / Friday: Museum of Science and History

 Honoring truly great leaders:
General George S. Patton Jr.
and his son
General George Patton IV

George S. Patton was perhaps
the finest general
to ever lead men into battle.
He was a true American Hero.
And was the only Allied General
feared by the Nazis
in World War II.

George Smith Patton, born in 1885,
was educated at the American Military Academy.

As a child he had difficulty learning to read and write,
but overcame this.
Later in his adult life he became an avid reader.

He was Home schooled,
like our precious children,
until the age of eleven.

Then he was enrolled in Stephen Clark’s School for Boys,
a private school in Pasadena.
  He was a highly intelligent child
and widely read classical military history.

Following graduation he became
an aide-de-camp to General Pershing
in his valiant campaign against Pancho Villa.

And George S. Patton was linked
with daring exploits as this
throughout his military career.

A highly intelligent child .

Following his promotion to Lieutenant Colonel in 1934
in Hawaii, he foresaw the possibility
of a Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor
with a remarkable degree of foresight
and sent a note about it,
four years before the attack occurred.

Following the end of World War II,
on December 9, 1945, General George S. Patton
was severely injured in a traffic accident.
He and his chief of staff were on a day trip
to hunt pheasants

in the country outside Mannheim.
Patton was sitting in the back seat of his 1938 Cadillac.
And at 11:45 a. m., near Neckarstadt,
a truck made a left turn in front of the Cadillac.
Patton’s car hit the front of the truck at a low speed.

Patton’s dog Willie mourns his master.             (This photo moved me to tears.)

Patton was buried at the Luxembourg American Cemetery
in Hamm, Luxembourg along with others in the Third Army.
His request was to be buried with his men.

On March 19, 1947,
his body was moved from the original grave site
to its current prominent location
at the head of his former troops.

My Dear Friends,
I was privileged and Honored
to recently visit the Luxembourg American Cemetery
and the place where General Patton
was laid to rest,
along with over five thousand
of his valiant soldiers
who gave their last full measure of Devotion
to you and me.

By the way,
the American Battle Monuments Commission
maintains 24 permanent American burial grounds
on foreign soil.
Presently there are 124,909 U.S. war dead
interred at these cemeteries.
The total number of Americans
who died for our freedom
in all wars,
is approximately
1,264,000
– 620,000 in the Civil War
and 644,000 in all other conflicts.

Monument in honor of General George Patton Jr.

Our freedom
is the most expensive
thing on this planet.
When you see a Veteran,
thank him or her,
and do what you can
for that wonderful person.

It is difficult
for me to convey the emotion
that I felt
upon visiting the graves
of so very, very many
who lost their lives
combating evil
and tyranny.
I am in tears
as I try to express
my admiration, gratitude and Love
for these truly
Brave and Beautiful People.

Military leaders like General Patton
are very few and very far between.
Please take note of the fact that
we have had military leaders at the precise time
when we needed them for conflicts,
when this country
was truly in need
in order for our country
to survive.

We have been truly Blessed
to have such great leaders
in our desperate times.
I Believe
that his precious Life
was a Gift
to our Nation
from Almighty God.

General George Patton was a man
equal to none.

“I Love this Man
and I think he was terribly under used and maligned.
We need Men like him today.
Gen. Patton was one of the best military minds ever.
May he be resting in the sweetest of
Peace and Grace.”
Pam pamellita

I was especially moved
to visit his grave
and the George Patton Museum
after having met his son,
General George Patton IV
at Fort Hood in 1977.

As fate would have it,
I was invited by the Husband
of my wonderful school secretary
to see Fort Hood.
At the time,
I served as the Principal
of LaVega Primary School.
Claudia Mitchell
mentioned to her Husband,
and member of the Army Reserve,
George Mitchell,
that I wanted to see Fort Hood.
And to my amazement,
she spoke with George
and arranged for me to accompany him
on his next trip.

The rest of the story
is like a Dream come true.

George Patton IV

Shortly after we arrived,
I noticed high in the sky
a very small helicopter
circling above us.
George and I
were visiting and looking at the landscape,
when this tiny copter suddenly
landed a few yards away.

I was startled
when a tall man
ducked down to get out
and came quickly
toward us.

He extended his hand
toward me
and introduced himself as
General George Patton!
I shook his hand
in shock and disbelief.

It was the son
of the very famous General Patton
of World War II.

He stated that he heard
I was here.
(obviously, Mr. Mitchell
shared information about me
before we arrived)
And he wanted to meet me.
Then he said
“I have been looking
for someone like you,
to be on my personal staff.”

I then looked around
to see who he was speaking to.
I found only
George Mitchell and me.

Then he asked,
“How old are you?”

I said I am twenty seven.
The General paused,
looked me up and down,
and stated that I was one year older
than officer’s candidate school would accept.

He shook my hand again
and said that it was nice
to meet me,
and then said thank you
to George,
crawled back into his tiny craft
and disappeared.

I looked at George Mitchell
and asked
“What the Hell?”

George Mitchell just chuckled
and we both slowly
walked away,
I, in disbelief.

                     “Willie”

As it turns out,
this General Patton
was the tenth in a family line of U.S. military men
in American History.

George Patton IV
served in Korea from 1953,
commanding “A” Company of the 140th Tank Battalion,
40th Infantry Division.
He received his first Silver Star
and the Purple Heart in Korea.

Returning to the United States in 1954,
He was assigned to West Point
but later was sent to teach at the
United States Naval Academy.

He served three tours of duty in Vietnam,
and then took command
of the 2nd Medium Tank Battalion, 81st Armored Regiment
of the 1st Armored Division at Fort Hood Texas.

During Patton’s final tour
he was awarded two Distinguished Service Crosses.
And, while in Vietnam, he frequently used helicopters as a mobile command post and was shot down three times and awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross.

After Vietnam,
he was promoted to Brigadier General
before becoming the commanding officer
of the U.S. 2nd Armored Division,
a unit his Father had commanded
in North Africa during World War II,
making this the first time in U.S. Army history
that a father and a son
had both commanded the same division.

          Visiting the wounded.

Like his Father,
Patton IV was a devout Episcopalian
and a believer in reincarnation.
He remembered visiting the site
of a Napoleonic battle in Regensburg, Germany,
where he was gripped by the feeling
that he had once been in combat there.
After his installation he went
to the post Chapel to meditate.
“While there,” he confessed,
“I not only felt the presence of God,
I also felt the presence of my Father.”

Brigadier General Patton
was Deputy Post Commander at Fort Knox during 1972.
He was known by the troops as a
GI General,”
often appearing in the Dining Hall during meal times.
And often he would be behind the serving line.

At Fort Hood
Maj. Gen. George Smith Patton was again in charge
of the Second Armored Division.

To the division it seemed as though the two men
were one and the same,
that George Patton IV was an eerie reincarnation
of his Father, Old Blood and Guts.

Interestingly, he was also stationed near Stuttgart,
where Manfred Rommel, son of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel,
was Mayor of the city.
The sons of the two former adversaries entered into a friendship,
which continued until his death in 2004.
The men shared the same birthday, December 24.

He died from a form of Parkinson’s disease
at the age of 80 in 2004.

General Patton’s young grandson, who still is living,
makes interviews on the History Channel
and the Military Channel,
recalling his family heritage.

I, too,
have a Family Heritage
I am very proud of.
My Uncle,
Eugene R. Retz,
fought in the Battle of Bulge.
He was captured by German forces
and spent over a year
as a prisoner of war.
He suffered from the experience
his entire Life
from coming close to death
by starvation.
.
“I recall when Gene was released from prisoner of war.
I believe it was close to Christmas time
and I was a young boy of about 8 years old.
I had just received an electric American Flyer train for Christmas.
On several occasions, Gene would come over to my home
and he and I would play (to my Joy) with the electric train.
At that time, I knew him only
as gentle and seemingly frail.”
Frank (Pinky) Swihel, Jr.

Dear Friends,
we have many other
Wars
to fight.
And in these struggles,
YOUR
courage and leadership
is needed:

The use of alcohol
results in the death
of two and one half million people each year
and causes serious illness and injury
to many millions more.
Most deaths caused by alcohol results from
injuries, cancer, cardiovascular diseases and liver cirrhosis.

From our friends at Livescience.com:
Drinking alcohol in moderation is more harmful
than previously thought,
according to a new study that concludes
there is no “safe” level
of alcohol consumption.

The comprehensive study,
which analyzed information from millions of people
in nearly 200 countries, found that alcohol
is tied to nearly 3 million deaths globally each year.

What’s more, any protective health effects of alcohol
were offset by the drink’s risk,
including strong links between alcohol consumption
and the risk of cancer
and injuries such as those resulting from car accidents.
[7 Ways Alcohol Affects Your Health]

“The widely held view of the health benefits of alcohol
needs revising,”
the researchers wrote in their paper,
published online Aug. 23 in the journal The Lancet.
“Our results show that
the safest level of drinking is NONE.”

People can be drawn to the sedative effects of alcohol
as a kind of medication,
helping to distract from persistent feelings of sadness.

While alcohol may temporarily relieve
some of the symptoms of depression,
it ultimately serves to worsen depression
on a long-term basis.

Alcohol
is a
depressant.

My Dear Friends,
allow your Love
to blossom into courage
and share your disdain
for this bacterial excrement
(Yes, that is exactly what it is).
Your children
need to know,
and they must know from
YOU,
the truth.

Stop consuming this
CRAP
(yes, it literally is),
especially in their presence.
By drinking in their presence
your are unknowingly giving
your stamp of approval.

The opinion
of a child’s Mother and Father
is more meaningful
to that child,
than any other information
they shall ever, ever
receive.

              A river of NO return.

On yet another battleground,
and there are MANY:

According to the
American Foundation for Suicide Prevention,
over 44,000 people try to commit suicide
each year in the United States.
In 2015, suicide was the second leading cause of death
in people 15 to 34 years of age
and third leading cause of death
in children aged 10 to 14,
according to the CDC.

Suicide has surpassed war
as the military’s leading cause of death.
War was the leading cause of death in the military
nearly every year between 2004 and 2011
until suicides became the top means dying.
More U.S. soldiers killed themselves
(468) than died in combat.

Improving diagnosis
of mental health conditions can help.
Most people who commit suicide
have seen a doctor within the last year,
but many do not get diagnosed with the mental illness
that will ultimately kill them.
Click here for 5 Myths About Suicide, Debunked

Wars
can never be won
in silence.

Please find the courage
to openly discuss the warning signs
and prevention.
Our very, very, fragile
and very HUMAN
brothers and sisters,
and sons and daughters,
need to hear YOU
voice your Love,
your concern,
and your compassion.

WE
have allowed our society to evolve
into an unbelievably complex and stressful
MESS!

Please take three giant steps backward
in time – toward those moments
when JOY was the order of the day.
Reflect upon those precious times
when you, and those around you,
were truly happy.

Now,
do, or do not do,
what took place,
or did not take place,
then,
in order to make you
happy.

      Joy is inside.

Joy does not simply happen to us.
Joy is inside
and not dependent on outside things.
In other words,
it’s a mindset.

Be Childlike.

Love every moment
for its sheer greatness.
Start paying attention to the details,
to the intricacies of life.
Life will amaze you.

Start Loving yourself
for who you are.
And who are
YOU?
No!
You do not know.
No one knows.
ONLY
God knows.

Go to your Father
in Heaven Above
and ASK
for help.

He will not
fail you.
He
LOVES
you.

Relive
the precious moments
when you felt
truly alive,
filled with
Joy.

      ASK for help.

.Visit places
and friends and family members
associated with Happy moments.
Listen to those Songs that inspired you
and made your Heart jump for Joy.
Get in touch with old friends
who were genuine towards you.

If you truly
want to be Joyful,
put your mind
outside
of your body.
DO SOMETHING
FOR SOMEONE ELSE!
Help another living person.
Put your mind to work
on THEIR problems and difficulties.
STOP thinking about
yourself.

The greatest feeling of JOY
your will ever come to know,
is when you help another
truly in need.

It is important to realize
that the mind can think of only
one thing
at a time.
And this,
My Friend,
is a GIFT.
If we put our mind to work
thinking of helping
someone other than
our self,
we simply cannot
focus upon our
worries, fears and problems.
Yes,
the inability to multi-task
(which is an illusion),
is truly a
Gift.

So,
put this knowledge
to work.

                 Truly a Gift.

Take the time
to do the things
that truly
matter in Life.

NO.
You will not be as successful,
or driven
or egotistical,
or well dressed,
or deluded by the illusions of
wealth and money.

YOU
will be
Happy
and
alive.

Goodnight.

A Wind That Blows Lonely / The Antithesis of Love / Friday: Modern Art Museum

Love is the answer,
and the Prayer.

child-and-mom

Look into the future smiling back.

There’s a wind that blows
lonely
across the barren plains
of our memory.
Soft,
it caresses the face
that refused to turn
into the wind,
toward the ones
so Loved,
to look into
the future
smiling back.
And now,
the past
no longer belongs
to us.

“Yes I knowdon
how lonely life can be.

The shadows follow me
And the night won’t set me free.
But I don’t let the evening
bring me down

Now that you’re around me.

The book of life is brief
And once a page is read
All but love is dead
This is my belief.”
– Don Mclean

flowers-and-lake-b

Life itself is an answer to Prayer.

God still whispers
into the restless void
of our lonely aching Hearts.

But so very often,
we recognize not
His answers to our Prayers,
simply because
we have never had need to pray
for so very many Blessings in Life
already bestowed
upon us.

No,
we never had need
for such Prayer,
for our needs were met
long before
awareness
needed a reason
to be.

So very many Blessings in Life
we never recognized
were answers
to Prayer,
Prayers we never had the need
to say.

“Therefore I tell you,
do not worry about your life,
what you will eat, or about your body,
what you will wear.
For life is more than food,
and the body more than clothing.
Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap,
they have neither storehouse nor barn,
and yet God feeds them.
Of how much more value are you
than the birds!”
Luke 12:22-24

Such is the Love
of a Mother and a Father
for a deeply Loved
Child.
Such is the Love
of your Father in Heaven
for YOU.

fountain-in-forest

    You are an answer to Prayer.

Life itself,
is an answer
to Prayer.

You
are an answer
to Prayer.

Look about you.
There is nothing,
absolutely NOTHING,
that does not answer
some Prayer,
somehow,
somewhere,
at sometime,

by someone.

island-with-tree-b

   Silence has the loudest voice.

Dear Friends,
there is scarcely anyone

who does not desire something
beyond
what is good for them.
So rather than hurt you
when the honesty’s too much,
God answers some Prayer
with the tender syllables
of silence,
until the moment
subsides.

Silence is like a River of Grace
inviting us to leap unafraid
into its beckoning depths.
It is dark and mysterious
in the waters of Grace.
Yet in the silent darkness
we are given new eyes.
In the Heart of the Divine
we can see more clearly who we are.
We are renewed and cleansed
in this
River of Silence.

– MACRINA WIEDERKEHR, Seven Sacred Pauses

Such is Love
in you,
that in the Sacred stillness
and the quiet
of a thoughtful moment,
with Wisdom and Grace,

  you proclaim a silent Love
Divine.

Silence is the only language
of the realized.

“There are times
when silence
has the loudest voice.”
Leroy Brownlow

By simply accepting
what God already provides,
we are made aware
and acknowledge
Prayer
never offered,
never needed,
but answered
just the same.

My Dear Friends,
Love

is the answer,
and
the Prayer.

“In the darkness of my dreaming,
the Light of you will stay.
If I could be close beside you,

If I could be where you are,
If I could reach out and touch you,
and bring you back home.
Is there a way I can find you
Is there a sign I should know,
Is there a road I could follow,
to bring you back home
to me.”
– Roma Ryan

So very often
we find ourselves
in the midst
of the greatest Answer
to the most fervent Prayer:
that we are
deeply
Loved.

Welcome Home.

h

With a deep seated Love of Courage to map the unknown.

The Antithesis of
Love

My Precious Friends,
Addiction
is the antithesis
of Love.
It can become
the destroyer of Worlds –
of your World,
and sadly,
that of your child.

Little understood,
like Cancer,
it devours the very substance
of the Life
we pretend goes on.
The fabric of our existence
feeds our addictions.
And the bacterial excrement of
Alcohol,
like cancer, can devour
and permanently change
the very structure
of the Human brain,
and more importantly,
the Hopes and Dreams,
of our precious Children.

brain

Alcohol, like cancer, can devour and permanently change the very structure of the Human brain.

People who have been drinking
large amounts of alcohol
for long periods of time
develop serious and persistent
changes IN THE BRAIN.
(

It is
much like an enemy in battle,
sneaking behind the lines
to disarm the troops
before they can engage
in combat,
while front line soldiers
stare straight ahead,
totally unaware,
wondering what is going on,
and why we cannot attack
and win.

Our ignorance,
our blind arrogance,
our naivety,
disarm us
and we never know
how!

“Sometimes we know,
sometimes we don’t.

Sometimes we give,
sometimes we won’t.

Sometimes we’re strong,
sometimes we’re wrong.

Sometimes we cry.

Well,
we’re gonna have to sit down
and think it right through.
If we’re only Human
what more can we do?
– Van Morrison

Our other addictions –
to linear thinking –
becoming too focused to get
the BIG picture,

to compressing time,
to the allure of complexity and dependency
upon technology,
to drugs we know
virtually nothing about,
have shrunk the number of outlets
for the daring, aggressive nature
of mankind,
that fought the good fight,
with a deep seated
Love of Courage
to map the unknown
and go
where mankind
has never gone
before.

This saddens,
but doesn’t surprise.
The Heroes
of our proud Past,
the Soldiers of our good fortune,
no longer are
of the same branch,
on the same tree,
or even
in the same forest.

The courage
to Love one another
enough to fight
the good fight,
to vanquish
the enemy within,
we cannot accept,
because
we cannot even recognize
that it is us.

“We shall meet the enemy,
and not only may he be ours,
he may be us.”
– Walter C. Kelly, Jr.

But when Life
breaks you,
and brings you
to your knees,
know that God will hear you
through your fervent Prayer,
and hold you
in warm embrace.

akiane“If we experienced the present through Eternity
and Eternity through the present,
we would know true Love.”
– Akiane Kramarik
from her upcoming book:
Eternity Is Not That Long

Love
can command you,
it can rule over
your precious Heart

or
you can let it
pass you by.

But please remember:

Everything
outside of Love
is a lie.

Do not be trapped
within a prison
of doubt.
The Loving You
is no illusion.

The Honesty of your Love
is the only
Truth.

And ye shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you
free.

– John 8:32

Goodnight.

                                       On Friday, Nov. 4, 2016,

we will meet at the MODERN ART MUSEUM OF FORT WORTH, 3200 Darnell Street (telephone 817-738-9215) at 9:45 a.m. Do NOT drop your child(ren) off early or without Dr. and Mrs. Anderson present. Our docent guided tour of  “KAWS WHERE THE END STARTS”  will start at 10:00 a.m. Following the tour we will dine at the museum’s restaurant, Café Modern, at 11:30 a.m. Parents, guests and family members and friends are invited to join us.

                   Pick-up is at 2:30 p.m. at the museum.

After lunch we will have a self-guided tour of the permanent exhibit and shopping at the fabulous gift store. Parents are advised that mature subject matter may be on exhibit including language, nudity, and sexual content.

Spanning the worlds of graffiti, pop art, and consumer culture, KAWS’s bodies of work are highly charged, each conveying his underlying wit, irreverence, and affection for our times, as well as his agility as an artist. He has primarily looked to and appropriated from pop-culture animations (including The Smurfs, The Simpsons, SpongeBob, Hanna-Barbera, and Peanuts) to form his artistic vocabulary for his paintings, drawings, and sculptures. Now well known for his larger-than-life sculptures and hard-edge paintings that emphasize line and color, KAWS’s cast of hybrid cartoon/human characters, with similarities to popular cartoon figures and logos like Mickey Mouse and the Michelin Man, are perhaps the strongest examples of his exploration of humanity.

The Modern maintains one of the foremost collections of modern and contemporary art in the United States.

FINANCIAL: No fee for admission.

GIFT SHOP: Has fascinating items. (I bought a DOG Bowl! Stop laughing!)

LUNCH: Café Modern serves contemporary American cuisine. Please provide funds for lunch.  One check per table will be provided. A gratuity will be added. Students please order from the Children’s Menu & Observe POLICIES of the Museum.

Uniform pants with a belt, polished shoes & monogrammed red shirts required. Parents / NEIGHBORS / SIBLINGS & WHO ARE YOU? are always invited to participate on our trips.

sunset-santacruz_980x551By the Light
Of Love

In the dark,
In the deepest recesses
Of the night,
There is no light.

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning, born of the one Light, Eden saw play. – Eleanor Farjeon

But,
By the Light of Love,
The dark of night
That pervades the spaces,
So cavernous and lonely
In the Soul,
Shall be driven out,
And you will be
Blinded by this Light,
No longer able to see
The hate that was you,
And me.

In remembering
Such that always was,
And may very well
Always be,

Let us ask ourselves:

Have we squandered
Our precious existence
Thinking no one
In the Heart
Is home?

Did we lay low
A legacy of Love,
So our human Heart
Could roam?

The Heart cannot depart from the place it never left.

Did we forget
We are all
Precious Gifts
From Above?

Ever gentle in reply,
God answers
Every doubt,
Every Prayer,
Every one,
With Love.

Encounters set to form the biography of being.

Were we never shown
What ever and forever,
In His Abiding Word,
Has always been known?

My Dear Friends,
Travel with me
For a moment,
A very brief
Moment indeed.

In a clearing
Of your memory
Lies a deep and abiding
Longing to go back home,
And take some comfort
From there.

  Love may be all there really is.

But the Heart
Cannot depart
From the place
It never left.
The journey of Life
Is a very Precious Gift.
Travel as you may,
You will discover
One day,
That your home
Is your Heart
And it will
Always be.

Yes,
We venture far
To discover Love
Can never depart.

Volcanic explosion viewed from space.

It is
A Sacred Space,
The Heart of God
Within the Heart of man,
A timeless place,
Filled with Love,
Overflowing with Grace.

In the end
We begin,
And only begin,
To understand,
As we come to realize
That never will we
Fully understand God
And the beautiful Universe
That is His,
And ours.

“Who does great things, unfathomable,
And wondrous works without number.
Were He to pass by me, I would not see Him”
– Job 9:10-12

The finite span of the human mind
Will never encompass
The Infinite.
But let us journey together,
And enjoy
What little we can come
To understand.

“Then I saw all the work of God,
that a man cannot find out the work
that is done under the sun.
However much man may toil in seeking,
he will not find it out.
Even though a wise man claims to know,
he cannot find it out.

– Ecclesiastes 8:17

quantum-entanglement

Future actions may influence past events!

“Quantum mechanics
is the branch of physics

that describes the rules that govern the universe
on the microscopic scale.
It tries to explain how subatomic particles
can behave as both particles and as waves.
It also offers an explanation about why particles
appear to exist in multiple positions
at the same time.”

“According to quantum mechanics,
two or more particles can become “entangled”
so that even after they are separated in space,
when an action is performed on one particle,
the other particle responds immediately.

The finite span of the human mind will never encompass the Infinite.

The effect of measurement happens instantly.
(Einstein referring to it as
“spooky action at a distance”)

One particle of an entangled pair “knows”
what measurement has been performed on the other,
and with what outcome,
even though there is no known means
for such information to be communicated

For the first time,
scientists have entangled particles
after they’ve been measured
and may no longer even exist.

Scientists showed that future actions
may influence past events,
when it comes to the mind-bending world
of quantum physics. read more

“The characteristic trait of quantum mechanics,
. . . enforces its entire departure
from classical lines of thought.”
Erwin Schrödinger

Yes,
The end
Is the beginning,
And between,
Is the time we
Pretend to journey,
Ever learning
Of the illusions
Of life and living,
Discovering
That Love may be
All there really is.

“I know that Thou canst do all things,
And that no purpose of Thine can be thwarted.
Therefore I have declared that which
I did not understand.
Things too wonderful for me,
which I did not know.”
– Job 42:1-4, 6

  A long, thoughtful ballad
Can life be,
Reflecting all the beauty
We see.

And our encounters
Set to form
The biography of being,
Either dwelling In the dark
Of night,
Or uplifted by the Truth,
Riding
On a Beam of Light,
Cradled in the Arms
Of One
Who can do none other
Than to Love you
As no other.
ef90e239cb03c100cebb0f1e305fcde2“Each of us has the power
to be good or to be evil.
That choice is yours and yours alone.
The tragedy of our world
is not that so many have chosen to be evil,
but that so few have made any choice at all.”
  – Martin Johns

We are at a time in our Human History
In which the veils of reality
Are rapidly being Lifted.
Our exploration requires us
To let go of rigid concepts,
Which our narrowly focused,
Linear minds hold as Real.
Enjoy the ride,
Cherish the view.

The geometry of the Heart
Like the circle of time,
Is without Dimension,
Limitless,
Infinite
In meanings sublime.

To your precious Heart
Listen easy,

And turn on
The Light.

Quantum entanglement
could be used to prevent hacking.

A new telecommunication technique, which manipulates the phenomenon in quantum theory known as entanglement, could cleanse the Internet of hacking.

Two computers using quantum information are more secure because the activity of a third party would alter the information content, enabling easy detection by the intended recipient. read more

On Friday, 12-11-15 we will meet at the Texas Civil War Museum
(817-246-2323) 760 Jim Wright Freeway (Loop 820).

Drop-off will be at the Museum at 10:00 a.m.

Pick up will be at the Museum at 2:30 p.m.

FINANCIAL $8.50 for students & $10.50 adults. This fee funds our docent program, slush fund for confederates reenacting the war and not fully accepting of Robert E. Lee’s surrender, and entrance to the museum. This is a group rate: please pay Dr. A.

ANDERSON SCHOOL STAFF are battle tested & ready to teach.

GIFT SHOP: Yes! They have a GREAT gift shop with items related to the war we have not necessarily lost! Dr. A will tell you what he wants.

Uniform pants with a belt & red monogrammed school shirt are required. Polish your shoes, the rebels are recruiting this week. This fabulous museum can be enjoyed by the entire family,

Students are NOT to leave the Museum or restaurant at any time for any reason, including the need to secure a ride, go off to war & whip the Yankees (which also requires a uniform, powder and gun) or use the restroom, without the approval of Dr. or Mrs. Anderson.

MUSEUM RULES * No loud talking, running, or jumping or one of the Museum staff will get you. (Rumor has it that they are ALL ex-school principals. Notice their threatening gaze searching for any sign of misbehavior!) * Stay with your chaperon at all times. If Dr. A seems jittery, he has had enough! Just calm down, back off and offer him coffee with extra cream.

* Use clipboards for worksheets. Do not lean or write on exhibit display cases or walls.
* No food, drink, candy, or gum is allowed inside. Give these items to Dr. A., he knows what to do with them.
* The museum has video surveillance & alarms so don’t be all that alarmed and please smile. Please return the muskets.
* They reserve the right to refuse service and rough up those who do not wish to follow the rules of conduct. Now, there are exceptions and one of them is Dr. A. He is a good guy and won’t remember the rules, and he already looks roughed up.
