I am a big fan of Kate Ceberano. She is such a great musician, such a beautiful woman, and I really admire her work in the area of human rights.

For anyone unfamiliar with Kate, she is a superstar in Australia.

Here are some sites about Kate:

Lincoln County is "Billy the Kid" country - if you come visit, be sure to take in Billy the Kid Museum!

My kids are related to Jesse James, so we have a soft spot in our hearts for all the old-time outlaws! (Not really a "soft spot" - but they sure are interesting!)

Here's a great quote I read today from an article titled "How to Study Scientology" by L. Ron Hubbard.

The basic definition of sanity in this somewhat nebulously learned society is whether or not a person agrees with everyone else. It is a very sloppy manner of accepting evidence, but all too often is is the primary measuring stick."

I really like this statement - because I think it's very true that people often do that. For instance, I know someone who was adamantly against her sister homeschooling her children. Until it became very popular, and the woman met many people who homeschool their kids. At that point, she became supportive of homeschooling. As long as her sister was the only person she knew who homeschooled, she was adamantly against it. Once she met other homeschoolers, began reading about it in magazines and newspapers, etc., then it was acceptable to her. Then, and only then, was homeschooling a "sane" thing to do. When the woman's sister was doing something unusual and unpoplular, the woman actually believed it was a sign that her sister was a little "off balance."

I think this fits in other ways, too. For instance, in the 50's, a man with long hair was considered "weird" - but in the 70's, he was pretty typical.

I think it's important, when faced with a person who is doing something "unpopular", to ask them why and try to understand their viewpoint, rather than just write the person off as crazy.

That's my own opinion on it!

My sister is selling her house. It's a bit tough, as her house is only a few years old - and the area is still growing, with lots of homes being built all the time. So she is competing with a lot of new homes, and we think it might take a while for her to find a buyer.

She still ahs to go through the whole home inspections thing, and the whole thing is a terrible hassle.

I am not in the position where I can buy a house right now - but I love looking through Realtor.com to look at homes. Sometimes I find a nice cabin out in the woods, and I think how nice it would be...!

For now, I just dream about buying a home...

I found another place where you can read a little about silence during childbirth - silent birth.

That is from a diabetes blog - but the info there about childbirth is interesting.

Scientology Newsroom:

What is a quiet or silent birth?

Having a quiet, gentle birth is all about providing the best possible environment for the birthing mother and her new baby.

It is labor and delivery done in a calm and loving environment and with no-spoken words by everyone attending as much as possible. Chatty doctors and nurses, shouts to “PUSH, PUSH” and loud or laughing remarks to “encourage” are the types of things that are meant to be avoided.

As L. Ron Hubbard, Founder of Dianetics and Scientology, wrote, “Everyone must learn to say nothing within the expectant mother’s hearing during labor and delivery.” And, “A woman who wants her child to have the best possible chance will find a doctor who will agree to keep quiet especially during the delivery, and who will insist upon silence being maintained in the hospital delivery room as far as it is humanly possible.”

Lots of discussion has been going on lately in the media about Scientology Silent Birth. Since I have had several babies using silent birth as a general rule, I figure this would be a good thing to bring up and clarify any questions about it.

Scientologists absolutely can speak when in labor. So can their doctors and nurses! However, many Scientologists choose to limit discussion during birth, and ask the doctors and nurses to refrain from unecessary chitchat. We can scream, yell, make noise as needed. (I do!) We just don't need the nurses and doctors in there chitchatting about the weather.

Take a look at this page:
