Enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war.

Barack Obama 1/21/2013


Nippy nights, down to 14 last night, but (2.00 / 21)
getting gradually warmer (above freezing) during the day, with a general warming trend toward the weekend. We don't have - or I have never seen - a website that tells you the real-time temp at your exact location, which is why I can't state more precise figures.

Did a nice meditation this morning from this website:

Talk Shoe

I've been a student of Sufism for many years, and our meditations can be enriching and powerful, when done right. It usually takes some practice, as with everything.

                       - Bertolt Brecht


Huh (2.00 / 21)
We have multiple websites that tell the exact temperature at your location. Yahoo weather, weather.com, weather underground...bunches.

They zone in at least by town/zip code.

I imagine there are such things, but I never looked. (2.00 / 17)
I work at home, so it's not an issue for me. The only weather site I look at is one I only use for forecasting the next few days, to accommodate any potential shopping or other types of trips - I'm really only interested if it is going to snow or the roads are icy. That's it.

Addendum. I just did a quick search, and really only found weather trends, like expected temps in the morning, at midday and in the afternoon/evenings. It just doesn't seem to be a German "thing", or else everyone has real thermometers outside/around their houses and don't need the web for that.

Cultural differences - funny things, and I still learn new tidbits all the time, like this one. I never thought about it before, lol.

Wer kämpft, kann verlieren. Wer nicht kämpft, hat schon verloren.

i was part of a semi sorta communal house including (2.00 / 16)
some Sufis and such for a few years longst ago.
learned how to enunciate some Arabic words which held power.
Saw some encouraging results from the practices my friend was doing.
I used some attributes here and there. They do work, done right. Probably quite a few other things also work, depending upon who's working them.
I cleared a corner one time with the 23rd psalm.
Nice to see real effects derived from assumedly mystical activity.
We made a small song from one of the phrase chants. The Moroccan girls used to improvise it in harmony with the piano. Made us all high who sung it.  

[ Parent ]
Yes, the Arabic words you refer to are usually the 99 names of God, and (2.00 / 16)
represent various divine attributes - they are used alone or in combinations of two, three, or four as mantras in the Sufi tradition.  They have only become public knowledge fairly recently. The holy words were long only divulged to those within a Sufi order, if I have my history straight.

Making songs from Arabic phrase chants were the origin of the Dances of Universal Peace, which have expanded to include chants/songs from many spiritual traditions.

The Dances of Universal Peace were first presented to the world in the late 1960's by Samuel L. Lewis (1896-1971), a Sufi Murshid (teacher) and Rinzai Zen Master, who also studied deeply in the mystical traditions of Hinduism, Judaism, and Christianity. Lewis was deeply influenced by his contact and spiritual apprenticeship with two people: Hazrat Inayat Khan, who first brought the message of universal Sufism to the West in 1910, and Ruth St. Denis, a feminist pioneer in the modern dance movement in America and Europe.

yup. i know a tincture of some teachings (2.00 / 5)
My friend (gone,) J, dreamt of pir vilayat before they met, just as pir vilayat's father, hazrat khan, dreamt of his subsequent teacher in advance of their meeting. Hazrat khan played music until he stopped 'to tune souls.'
Wikipedia is much good on this. Apparently, the tradition continues. J always said to me that Sufis were the lost tribe of Islam.
They include the Whirling Dervishes. There's lots of lore.
Tragically, some of the fiercer branches of Islam are lethally intolerant of Sufis at times. I respected the little I was taught because it was gentle, instructive and produced verifiable results. Sometime, if it's right, I could tell a few stories..
The stuff we did musically and singing was not Sufi teaching nor approved. Still worked. Some of the best music never recorded comes spontaneous from people you didn't know had it in them..

good morning Purple People! (2.00 / 23)
wind is howling on the lakefront, shaking the
windows something fierce here on the 3rd floor.
35 and getting colder with a chance of snow.

the cold today.

32 degrees in Madison WI (2.00 / 19)
Wind advisory until 3pm:
* WINDS... WEST WINDS 20 TO 30 MPH... WITH WIND GUSTS OF 40 TO 45 MPH.

Temperature is supposed to stay around 32 degrees: nicely freezing the rain and melting snow we had yesterday when temperatures got into the upper 30s low 40s. The pooled water along the rural highways made for treacherous driving yesterday.

I can hear the wind howling and I am glad that I do not have to go anywhere until late morning.

We should watch your FMF poll closely! Will people be able to claim that they reflexively FAILed domestic felines because the poll was in the wrong order? ;)

I'm interested to see if they get any fails (2.00 / 17)
It will be the brave soul, even in an anonymous poll.

Domestic canines will be next week's topic.

Morning - (2.00 / 19)
Heading up to our land shortly. Materials were delivered over the weekend, and the building gets built today. Taking Kidlet with me today - figure it will be a good educational experience, since she's currently building a shed in Carpentry class. Yes, I am taking my camera with me.

No matter where you go, there you are...

It is 28 degrees and raining here. Just what we need--freezing rain. (2.00 / 19)
Ugh, and I have class this afternoon.

Wow, that's a lot colder than NYC (2.00 / 18)
it's already 38 here.

Is it supposed to drop back down (2.00 / 15)
...and then give you freezing rain? I don't care for snow but it's sort of a mild 'go away you bother me' thing. Freezing rain I hate with a passion. Frightens me to drive.

the snow will be melting into huge piles of slush. Hooray.

Good morning Moose! 57 in Wilmington, rainy. Racer thinks we (2.00 / 16)
should go back to bed.  Daffodils are primed and ready to open up, just a little too early.  Maybe a few more weeks.
Hope y'all have a great day!

Forty degrees here in northern Virginia and it's raining (2.00 / 16)
Hope it rains all day.  Last year we had a drought, which killed our attempts to grow vegetables.  We did use water from the rain barrels, but that took a lot of time and effort.

I hope the groundhog was right!

Have a good day, everyone.

WINDY (2.00 / 16)
St Charles is gonna blow away today.  Bent our admittedly cheap flag pole in half overnight.  But the crusty snow is melting so that is good.  Up around 35 today with 30 to 40 mph winds all day.  I'm not going anywhere if I can help it.  Making a from scratch chicken pot pie for dinner.  Yum.

I'm off (2.00 / 17)
to Home Depot to return the faucet that my friend said was too cheap to install. I found the receipt, from last October. Have I really been without a kitchen faucet for six months, turning on the water using a short metal rod to pull forward the tab that used to hold the handle?

And has this really been because I couldn't find $50.00 to pay my local handyman to install it?

And have I really been without a garbage disposal for that long as well because there's a fork stuck in it that can't be removed?

Yes to all of the above. I've bought a better faucet (credit card screeched with the strain) and will have it installed soon. TTYL.

here in the high desert. Mr w will be installing another window today. The local weather guy on tv said to expect thunderstorms tonight after midnight so mr w wants to take advantage of this nice day. Looks like the next opportunity to open up the walls won't come until thursday.

[ Parent ]
that's in the works (2.00 / 11)
but first the structure needs to be brought current. Once the windows are all installed it will be central ac and underfloor heating. I'm really looking forward to the new heating system which I understand works by warming up everything sitting on the floor which is supposed to make the house more comfortable. I don't actually know anyone with it but that's what I've read.

My sun room has radiant floor heating. (2.00 / 11)
The plumbing for the hot water was laid under cement stained and stamped to look like paving stones. My cats move in each fall and spend the cold season sprawled on the floor, while I keep my boots there so they're toasty every time I put them on.

Hi, pittiepat... no Houston ice storm experience, but (2.00 / 8)
in the 1970's I was in a group of students driving west across Texas during a HELLACEOUS ice storm. "Driving" wasn't even an option, and we wound up spending the night in our sleeping bags on the floor of a local courthouse while waiting for conditions to improve.

I have seen snow in Houston, and people freak out completely. Then again, some of them freak out here when it rains, and traffic slows to a crawl.

It's no wonder that many people working for Houston-based companies work at home rather than dealing with the commute.

Here's a story for you. In the mid-1980s we had a serious (2.00 / 4)
cold snap around Christmas.  Many hours below freezing.  The power company begged companies to turn off their holiday lighting, a request which was completely ignored.  On Saturday am I went to the grocery store and came home to no power -- rolling blackouts had been implemented.  Unfortunately, someone in the local brain trust didn't consider water pumping stations "essential", the power to them was cut, and the backup generators failed.  West Houston (between the Galleria and to the west) had no water -- for days!.  I lived in the Westheimer & Fondren area and worked in Kingwood (40 miles away) but desperate for a shower I drove up to the lab for a wash and shampoo.  Christmas dinner was prepared using bottled water and we ate off paper plates.  Good times!

Off to the hospital this morning... (2.00 / 12)
...for x-rays, an EKG and some blood work. Seems they need updated, recent test results before they cut into me.

It's going to be a long day, but I know it's necessary.

Back from Home Depot & Supermarket (2.00 / 10)
At the market I spent almost double the usual because I had to buy Kitty Cosequin and a big bag of tablespoon-a-day-for-each-kitty high-quality dry cat food.

Then I returned the faucet and got the money refunded to my bank account instantly, enough to cover the groceries and more.

Happy I am.
