  1. Dear Rosie, There are no words adequate to express my sorrow at reading this tragic news. I am so terribly sorry and am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Heartfelt condoloences to you and your family. Beth
  2. Gone, gone, gone beyond , gone beyond beyond. Hail the goer, beyond even conceiving of a place beyond which you can go beyond. Ram Dass Sending you peace, love and light. Bill, your father was an extraordinary man. I can only imagine how deeply he will be missed. My deepest sympathies to you and your family. Elizabeth
  3. Twinkie cake, red meat and jelly beans regularly cross my lips and then are forever anchored to my hips. I am a very good cook so that is problematic as well. I can make brussels sprouts that make your heart sing! And I will share the recipe. I drink whole milk with hersheys syrup too! And if it is a hot flash day then I go to raw cookie dough. :lol:
  4. Oh Motherpeace is amazing! That, I think, is the first deck to be produced in a shape other than standard rectangle. Here is the link for those who want to see the images. I had forgottten how lovely these were. My favorite art deck is the St Petersburg but I cannot read from it. The new trend seems to be crafting your own spreads for interpretation. Symbology is my passion thus I was destined to love reading tarot! http://www.motherpeace.com/
  5. I love the RW deck and especially the Grim Reaper. This is a perfect example of what makes Tarot reading such an interesting and varied practice. One likes the RW , the other, Sacred Rose , yet another prefers Druid deck. There is room for every aesthetic and interpretive style and that appeals to me as a reader and to my sense of aesthetics. I cannot say how many decks I have purchased and then they did not read well despite my love for the artwork. Several if memory serves. Here is a great new deck that will appeal to many who enjoy learning about and working with saints. http://www.holycardtarot.com/
  6. Here is the hermetic link for some reason it is being obstinate. http://www.hermetics.org/pdf/tarot_history.pdf
  7. The Rumi deck is beautiful as well. http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/rumi/
  8. I am a professional reader. This is a fairly accurate depiction of the history of tarot. http://www.hermetics..._history.pdf��. A superb book for understanding the tarot meanings in the Rider Waite system is this by the lovely Rachel Pollak. http://books.google....id=t3sBB0u8zUwC . I have about 50 decks and read for parties, individuals and the like. They are not used for divination in a specific manner as in thi scard refers to that. It is far more a tendency of certain choices and behaviours will lead to x outcome if you continue doing what you have always done. It is one half interpretation of the person being read for, the querient, and one half several years of study and practice to recognize the connections between the cards once they are in relation to tone another their meanings can change 180 degrees or more. My word, this will be the year of elizabeth flying her freak flag ever higher. I welcome any and all questions about tarot as a practice not about the morality of the practice as I am not interested in others opinions on that question. And yes, I am also a lawyer. A lawyer who not only writes her own briefs but scrubs toilets in the office because damnit I have standards that no one else can meet! :coolgleamA: I read on Saturday afternoons and Sunday evenings at a couple of locations and might do a Renn Faire this year. It is delightful, quite fascinating and I have done this for 32 years now. If you want to look at many different types of decks try Aeclectic tarot as they picture many decks online so you can see the wide variety available. here is the link to Aeclectic http://www.aeclectic...c.net/tarot/��. http://www.hermetics.org/pdf.tarot_history.pdf
  9. Jesuits are Jedi Masters. I was educated by them for over a decade, trust me on this. :lol:

  11. Several family members have Aspergers. This is one of the most horrific pieces of bull**** gonzo fatalistic malarkey I have yet had the discomfort of watching. Thank God a man of the cloth is calling this what it is. Horsepuckey meant to terrorize, further traumatize and shake already stressed families to the core. For the record our high functioning Aspergers include two Anglican priests and a Brigadier General. Don't feed the fear.
  12. Endometrial ablation is the best gift ever. I have my life back.
  13. I had mine cut out in a doctors office. It was the best thing EVER. In the history of the world. It was just fine and actually they are dangerous as they can thrombose. Get thee to an MD one shot and it is all gone. If I could write a song about the wonders of a hemorrhoidectomy I would. You should be seen especially if there is more than one. I am sorry. They are truly painful and miserable.
  14. I googled the phrase Romeike homeschooling brief and DOJ . If this case were worthy of an appeal or had any merit whatsoever legally there would have been a mention on CNN, Fox, MSNBC, The Justia website, the American Trial Lawyers website something somewhere...NOTHING. For 7 pages at least nothing but HLSDA, blogs by homeschooling mothers who believe anything the HLSDA puts forth and far religious right websites. Not one news source refers to it, not one legal website nothing. Because it means nothing as it was a Potemkin Village a hideous ruse and play for the hearts and minds of homeschoolers to make them fear that their right to homeschool was in jeopardy based on this nonsense case of asylum seeking that had no basis in Federal law on Immigration nor any purpose except to instill fear in homeschoolers. And by golly it worked.
  15. It is not a homeschool case at all that is the point and why HLSDA should not be involved. An immigration lawyer would have refused to take the case based onone fact: this is not where case law and statutory law in the US of A rest their laurels regarding who may seek political asylum. I have no idea what you refer to wherein you claim that the US courts are using the laws of other nations to interpret our law. And I practice law. In the USA. We use legal precedents, called case law and statutory law to conduct relations between states, persons and legal entities such as a corporation. There is however one time befre the courts or the government was created where I can recall the law/legal writings of another government were used to interpret and construct our founding documents. John Locke's writings in the Two Treatises of Government were the backbone and nearly entire structure of our Bill of Rights. They were no more written by a founding father than the man on the moon. They plagarized Locke shamelessly. Locke was English. Ironic eh??
