The movies we watch.

I know this is a hot topic right now and will most likely get several comments on this.  If I lose readers over this, then its their choice.  I just felt that I needed to get this topic out in the open. 

As one movie that is coming out is titled "The Kings Speech".  It was a R movie mostly because of profanity being told about 20 times over and over again.  It won the best movie for the past year at the Oscars.  I have yet to watch it because of the rating.  Now as a result the movie as it is coming out will receive a lesser rating as PG-13 and for that they are taking out the profanity out so they can have a larger audience to watch the movie. 

I have heard two different views of the rating movies deal.  One side is that viewers will only watch the movies based on the rating of the movie: G, PG, PG-13, R and NC-17.  The other side is that viewers will watch a movie based on content of the movie and not give a care of wither its R or PG-13. 

I myself have at one time did see some R movies, but have not seen one since for over 2 1/2 years.  Though I do watch PG-13, PG and G movies.  I know that its up the individual to see what movie that he or she will see.  I know I can not stop any family or friends from watching a movie just because of the content or the rating of the movie.  If they want to watch it, its their choice.  I am not condoning anyone who wishes to watch R movie.  I will still be your loyal friend even if you make that choice to watch it.

Maybe their may come a time when the movies will be so bad that it will be not good to watch any movies at all. 

Please if you do comment keep it clean and in good nature. :)

The end of the world.

When we were in our youth ages, we were told that one day the world will be in turmoil and confusion will reign.  That the environment will not be the same, that we will see things from the heavens and around the Earth that is not normal to see, that good will be wrong and wrong will be good, and will see more wars and hate then ever before. 

We can huddle in our homes and survive on food storage and never come out of the house till we perish or we can live a day at a time and learn the signs and know what they mean and that we strive to do good and live and go to school, work and enjoy life. 

Yes, the world is a scary place and will be more scary for our children and their children but we are told that the things that are happening now must happen but that we can pray to be able to endure these times of the world.

Not your nomal posting.

Its easy to be misunderstood at times wither by email, chat or text.  Cause you see the words but you don't know how its coming across as.  It could be that the person is angry, frustrated, sad, happy, joking, serious, etc.  It hurts when the friendships are destroyed by small amount of words and the attitude they are presented. 

I know that I'm not perfect and I usually take the person of what they say the wrong way.  Which is why I think someone is angry at me when they are not or thought it was out of bad taste.  Which is why I try to play around and joke but then its like I'm told that wasn't very funny or not at all like you.  Then I try to be serious to much and then I'm being told that I need to loosen up and not be serious all the time.  Its hard to find the right balance in life.   I do try my best but, sometimes the friendship just doesn't work out and they are no longer my friend.   Which is why I'm glad for my friends who stick with me, who know me for who I am.  Without friends then life would be hard. 

Then I'm also thankful for the Lord who will always be there for me.  He has been through everything that I have been through.  He knows when its hard to lose a friend, to have someone misunderstand you,  etc.

I know this is not my normal kind of post but I figured I had to let it out.   I don't know how much I will keep this blog running.  I've been told that I'm doing a good job at this, to keep it up, and surprised that I haven't given it up already.  I will keep on going until I run out of ideas to talk about.

Thanks.

Celebrating St. Patricks Day.

We should all be able to get along with each other.

We have different beliefs, religions, cultures, language, color, etc.  Why can we not just get along with everyone.  There are two songs that I would like to include in this post. 

This one is played at Disney park where you go in a ride and hear the words as you are on the ride:
It's a world of laughter, a world of tears

its a world of hopes, its a world of fear
theres so much that we share
that its time we're aware
its a small world after all

CHORUS:
its a small world after all
its a small world after all
its a small world after all
its a small, small world

There is just one moon and one golden sun
And a smile means friendship to everyone.
Though the mountains divide
And the oceans are wide
its a small world after all.

This song was done recently at a get together of various religions all coming as one.
This song is played at Christmas time when we think of peace on Earth more than any other time of the year.

Let there be peace on Earth,
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.
With God as our father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With every step i take
Let this be my solemn vow.
To take each moment
And live each moment
With peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth,
And let it begin with me.

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.
With god as our father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow.
To take each moment
And live each moment
In peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.

Update on blog status.

I didn't know who would all accept the names of my co workers that I work with in my posting as characters in Star Wars and that this blog is not to always talk about movies and use the characters as my co workers all the time.  Also to not feel anyone else that I don't work with feel guilty that I didn't include them in the deal or wish that I had chosen them instead of a character to use.  So to ease that I just decide to erase that info of the characters that I used as and decide to put them on a different blog all together.

I did add to the side
* Number of views that have been done
* The favorites of the posts that I have done up to 10 since I started.  Its a random process so I don't know which one will be on that list. 
* I did change the archive list from being monthly shown to weekly shown. 
* I did include a white small envelope down below by the bottom of the posting that you should be able to click on and email someone the posting to another friend if you want. 

Thanks again for always reading my blog.  I know it has helped you in ways that I can't imagine.

Revised posting of May the Force be with you! SPOILER ALERT ABOUT STAR WARS.

In a galaxy far, far away.... we find ourselves seeing some creatures and humans interacting with each other.  We learn of C3PO, R2D2, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, Darth Vader (Anakin Skywalker), Ewoks, Obi -Wan Kenobi, Yoda, etc. sorry for the spelling of the characters played out during the movies. 

At times we may be a character in this realm of world, Do we let fear overtake us and get angry and become Darth Vader more of machine then human?  Are we lovable creatures like Ewoks or tall like creatures like Chewbacca with an attitude when losing to a game? Are we out carefree with no care in the world like Han Solo? Are we out for an adventure like Luke Skywalker?  Are we of political realm like Princess Leia Organa? Are we Obi-Wan Kenobi that is a trainer to someone else? Are we wise of council like Yoda? Are we so much want for power like Darth Sidious?

I'm sure wither be at home, school, work we can all be these characters that is portrayed in Star Wars.   As these characters we can either use the Force for good or evil.  Darth Sidious uses his power for evil and to get power and in a way gets Anakin Skywalker to see the evil be much better than the good and makes him Darth Vader.  Yoda and the council of the Jedi uses the Force for good.  Let us hope that we use the force for good and not evil.

MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!

Falling out and learned a lesson.

 Another experience that I want to share is when I was a young child, which I learned was a stupid choice I made. 

It was a great day coming home from a father and son outing down in Florida.  We had just loaded up the van and heading back to home.  As we were heading back home, driving through Jacksonville, I had a foolish idea come to my mind.  I was sitting right next to the passenger front door with my brother on my left and my dad driving.  I had closed my eyes not wanting to see what would happen, as I did so I reached over and started pulling up the handle.  As I did so, my mind went into shut off mode or unconsciousness. I wasn't wearing a seat belt at the time, which could have had a different picture of events if I did.  I fell out of the van onto the street in an intersection as my dad was in the turning lane.  Along with me was also potato chips went flying into the air and the van stopped realizing I wasn't in the van anymore. 

During this whole event I was unconsciousness so its only from what I've learned from my dad and brother. 

Someone had been told to call the fire department, ambulance, and police officer to help me.  Thank goodness all the traffic had stopped.  I was lifted up in the ambulance while my younger brother got to ride on the back of the police motorcycle.  I woke up a short time later in the hospital with the doctor looking me over. Once when my mind become consciousness again I asked "Where was I?" and then the event then I remembered what had happened.  "Oh yeah, I remember now what happened."  I was good to go home that day but, had to wear a neck brace which I wasn't to happy about.  I then went on my way home.  I told the event to my mother and as I was my stomach wasn't to happy with what I did earlier that day. 

I learned a valuable lesson that day.  To always wear seat belts, lock the doors when you have children in your vehicle.  I don't think I could stand another event again and come out still being alive.
