The reactors that have had explosions and fires, there has been a release of radiation. There is more than one type involved and it is a bit complicated. However, due to the radiation traveling around the world due to the winds, we have been in a lock down mode. The doors are taped and the windows are covered with plastic. It is definitely claustrophobic and stressful.
We hear some information on the news and the Internet but there is a real lack of stories on mainstream television. There was news of the aftershocks of the 9.0 earthquake and initial stories about the problems with the reactors. I hear about further explosions and fires in April 2011 but the Internet and media are extremely quiet.
There is talk about a conspiracy to keep the truth from the general public to prevent general panic. From what I have researched there has already been a panic: people have cleaned out supplies of potassium iodide, iodine, etc. Companies that sell products for emergency kits are out of stock and not taking orders. There are reports that our rain water (drinking water), produce and milk are contaminated. There is even talk that this may take not days, weeks or months to recover but years. How much of this is true and how much is being spread by frightened people?
If this is to last for a long time, it is not living. It is nothing more than existing. I welcome constructive comments and suggestions. I haven't been out of the house since February 18, 2011 for a variety of reasons. I am obviously beginning to suffer cabin fever, lack of fresh air and sunshine, not to mention that I miss being around people. Please send prayers for the world and all the people. Thank you.

When I first saw Mushka he didn't have any fur except on his head. They shaved all the fur to help prevent further infection. He was six months old, hungry, frightened and very ill. They ended up amputating his back left leg. He is learning to get around very well but doesn't do a lot of jumping. When at Mom's the neice simply puts up a baby gate and he stays in the room. He is getting around beautifully and growing to an adorable little boy. My neice absolutely loves Mushka and it will be very difficult for her to part with him. She already found him a permanent home when he is completely healed. Mushka will truly be missed.
Mushka also spends time under the dresser and he can see who is at the door by looking in the mirror that is on the right wall next to the door. He makes the decsion whether or not he will bless you with his presence. He is so precious.
How did she arrive at the name Mushka? She said that it just fit him perfectly. We looked up the meaning and the following is what I found online.
- Something/someone that is so lethally adorable that your body convulses at even the thought.
- Something whether it be a phrase, habit, noise, policy, etc. that is irksome but not enough so to be justifyibly annoying.
- 'Your baby is the most mushka thing I've ever seen in my life'
- 'That face you're making is mushka'

The fascination of Jewish cookery is the way in which an enormous cookery repertoire has been created, with contributions from hosts of countries, while still retaining allegiance to the Jewish Dietary Laws. The great variety in Jewish cooking stems in part from the travels of Jewish communities from country to country in the Middle East, Asia Minor and Europe. Local ingredients were made use of and variations on familiar themes became distinctive dishes in their own right. The names of dishes varied according to the country of origin, i.e. Russian, Polish, Spanish or Middle Eastern.
You can learn a great deal more about Jewish cooking at:
- Cooking Around the World - Traditions of Jewish Cooking where you will find some interesting recipes.
- Judaism 101: Jewish Dietary Laws where you will learn a great deal.
I have thoroughly enjoyed becoming acquainted with these dishes.

Rob is showing her photos he took with his iPhone. Kalani is often right there with her Grandpa. This photo was taken at Christmas 2009 and we all had a great time. I am so blessed to have these beautiful great-grandchildren in my life.

My granddaughter went through this stage when she was a little girl. She is now sixteen but I am not certain she has left that phase. She is always primping and preening. I am just not accustomed to this as I was the only female in the house when my boys were at home. Life is definitely a learning process.

I have finally seen Avatar and highly recommend this film that was released in traditional 2-D, as well as 3-D and IMAX 3D formats. I saw it in 3-D. I went with a couple friends and they came with an attitude that it would only be interesting for the first ninety minutes. That proved to be wrong. Two of the three of us really appreciated the movie. I am truly impressed with the filming and can appreciate the storyline. Could this be our future?
I will not reveal the end. You will have to attend this movie to see how it ends.
In 2154, the RDA corporation is mining Pandora, a lush, Earth-like, moon of the planet Polyphemus, in the Alpha Centauri star system. Parker Selfridge (Giovanni Ribisi) heads the mining operation, and it employs Marines for security. The corporation intends to exploit Pandora's reserves of a valuable mineral called unobtanium. Pandora is inhabited by the Na'vi, a blue-skinned species of sapient humanoids with feline characteristics. Physically stronger and taller than humans, the Na'vi live in harmony with Nature, worshiping a mother goddess called Eywa.
Humans cannot survive exposure to Pandora's atmosphere for very long and use gas masks. In an attempt to improve relations with the natives, scientists create human-Na'vi hybrids called avatars, controlled by genetically-matched human operators. Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), a paraplegic former Marine, becomes a last-minute replacement for his murdered identical twin brother, a scientist trained to be an avatar operator. Dr. Grace Augustine (Sigourney Weaver), the head of the Avatar Program, considers Sully an inadequate replacement for his brother, and relegates him to a bodyguard role.
Jake escorts Augustine and biologist Norm Spellman (Joel David Moore) on an exploratory mission in their avatar forms to make contact with the Na'vi in order to help establish diplomatic relations, solve the problem of resources and end the threat of violence. The group is attacked by a predator, and Jake becomes separated and lost. Forced to survive the night in Pandora's dangerous jungles, he is rescued by Neytiri (Zoe Saldana), a female Na'vi. Neytiri brings Jake to Hometree, which is inhabited by Neytiri's clan, the Omaticaya. Mo'at (C. C. H. Pounder), the Na'vi shaman and Neytiri's mother, shows interest in the warrior "Dream-walker" (their term for the Avatars), and instructs her daughter to teach Jake their ways.
Colonel Miles Quaritch (Stephen Lang), leader of the security forces for RDA, hears of Jake's unique relationship with the Omaticaya and promises Jake working legs in exchange for intelligence about the natives and what it will take for them to abandon Hometree, which rests above a large deposit of unobtanium.

I was experiencing pain in my left knee and was very tired of taking OTC medication. I learned that, if I followed specific steps, the pain should be reduced if not completely eliminated. I was provided a sample kit and proceeded to follow the instructions. You need to understand that there is absolutely no logical reason this should work, but it does. The pain in my knee was gone.
These wonderful products are concentrated so they last for a long time making them extremely cost effective.
The next step was for me to become a Marketing Associate with LAF Miracle Solutions. You can learn more about my experience with these products at Miracle II which also has a link where you can become a Marketing Associate or a Preferred Customer. I am hoping you will join me there and please let me know about your experiences.
I look forward to having you join me.
