SK shoes

canvas and markers

For Christmas I gave a pair of white canvas keds to my daughter-in-law with the promise to art them up. Was side tracked until we got the right size. Had to work hard on ideas and finally came up with SpeeDee, Statue of Liberty, Track/High Jump & personal best at TTU, Seattle,Knoxville, Crossfit Knights logo, kettle bells, Bailey and bigfoot. Seems like a lot to fit into a shoe but that’s why I call them  “Life Shoes.”  Only white left from the original canvas is the sign’s background held by SpeeDee (the first McDonald’s mascot before Ronald… figured that was a better choice than a big Ronald on her toes…plus SpeeDee makes for a good conversation). Can’t see on these shots but I did a couple of city scapes on the sides of the shoes. Yellow was a favorite color as was teal and grey.

Nearly two tons of hash washes up on Spanish beach Agence France-Presse Monday, March 10, 2014 20:38 EDT

Spanish authorities seized 62 bales containing close to two tons of hashish that washed ashore on Monday on a beach in one of Spain’s exclaves in North Africa, police said.

Officers on a routine patrol spotted several bales at the Calamocarro beach just outside Ceuta, which lies across the Strait of Gibraltar from mainland Spain and is surrounded by Morocco, police said in a statement.

They collected 57 on the beach and another five still floating at sea, each bale weighing about 30 kilos.

Police said the drugs may have fallen off a ship when bad weather disrupted maritime traffic in the Strait of Gibraltar on Sunday.

Spain’s proximity to Morocco, a major hashish producer, has made it a key entry point for drugs bound for Europe.

Spanish authorities seized 325.5 tonnes of hashish in 2012, the last year for which figures are available, 74 percent of the total amount of hashish seized in Europe that year, according to the interior ministry.

Ayn Rand’s impact on America

Ayn Rand’s “philosophy” is nearly perfect in its immorality, which makes the size of her audience all the more ominous and symptomatic as we enter a curious new phase in our society….To justify and extol human greed and egotism is to my mind not only immoral, but evil.— Gore Vidal, 1961

Only rarely in U.S. history do writers transform us to become a more caring or less caring nation. In the 1850s, Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) was a strong force in making the United States a more humane nation, one that would abolish slavery of African Americans. A century later, Ayn Rand (1905-1982) helped make the United States into one of the most uncaring nations in the industrialized world, a neo-Dickensian society where healthcare is only for those who can afford it, and where young people are coerced into huge student-loan debt that cannot be discharged in bankruptcy.

End Times?


I believe that it’s quite possible that we are literally in the 2 years where the Holy Bible’s 7th Seal will be opened upon us. From this year, 2014, all the way into next year, 2015. Soon afterwards or during we should see some extremely horrible natural disasters occurring everywhere on this planet.

The reason why I believe this is because of the famous 4 Blood Moon Omen that is to occur both this year and the next, because it coincides perfectly with Biblical prophecy.
