Veterans Day 2013

Wow... here we are... Veterans Day! A day where we have the chance to take time out to thank those who have served, who are serving and who will continue to serve so that we may enjoy the life and the freedom we have today. Today is a bitter sweet day for me. While I think there is nothing more important than taking the time to actually thank the people who allow me to live the life of freedom that I do. It is a day that makes me miss my husband even more as he is in a war zone even as I type this.

So a special thank you to my husband.  Thank you for your patriotism, your bravery and your loyalty to your country.  Though I don't always understand it, I admire it greatly and know that I and everyone around me has a better life because you feel the call to protect us.

I love you Andrew and I am VERY proud to be your wife!  Be Safe, Run Fast, Shoot Straight and know I will be here waiting on you!

So please take time out of your day today to thank a Veteran.  They have given so much so that we can have so very much more!

Until Next Time~

The GA Guidestones... A History Leason...

So a few weeks ago hubby and I decided to go on a little trip...  we are actually looking at farms. Yes, yes I am afraid my hubby has decided after retirement that he wants to become the cliché  "old McDonald had a farm"....

Anyway we found our way over towards the east side of the state and realized we were only about an hour from the GA Guidestones.... so we head on over there! (As always you can click on the photo for a larger image!)


For those who have never heard or seen the Guidestones, here is your history leason for today....

The Georgia Guidestones is a granite monument in Elbert County, Georgia, USA. A message clearly conveying a set of ten guidelines is inscribed on the structure in eight modern languages, and a shorter message is inscribed at the top of the structure in four ancient languages' scripts: Babylonian, Classical Greek, Sanskrit and Egyptian hieroglyphs.

The structure is sometimes referred to as an "American Stonehenge."[1] The monument is 19 feet 3 inches (5.87 m) tall, made from six granite slabs weighing 237,746 pounds (107,840 kg) in all.[2] One slab stands in the center, with four arranged around it. A capstone lies on top of the five slabs, which are astronomically aligned. An additional stone tablet, which is set in the ground a short distance to the west of the structure, provides some notes on the history and purpose of the Guidestones.

A message consisting of a set of ten guidelines or principles is engraved on the Georgia Guidestones in eight different languages, one language on each face of the four large upright stones. Moving clockwise around the structure from due north, these languages are: English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese and Russian.

The message reads -
Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
Unite humanity with a living new language.
Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
Balance personal rights with social duties.
Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.

No one knows who put the stones up and there is even some conspiracy theories and there are astronomic features on the monument as well!


For more information you can check out this LINK!

I have to say it was one of the most interesting places we went this summer!


How about you - did you go anywhere interesting that had a history lesson behind it this summer?  If so, do tell!

Until Next Time!
