The Soul Calendar: Video: Viewing The Awesome Milky Way



The Soul Calendar: Video: Viewing The Awesome Milky Way: "From Denny: Talk about beautiful. A Norwegian photographer, Terje Sorgjerd, decided to hop on over to an island off Spain to film the Milky Way for this video. He says this area is the best place to observe the sky for the best views of the Milky Way Galaxy. It's definitely poetry in the sky. After viewing these incredible scenes I'm inclined to agree with him. Book me on the next flight to Spain! :) Happy Easter, everyone!"

Dennys Food and Recipes: From Chef Mario Batali: Grilled Easter Lamb, Pasta, Cheese Dishes

Dennys Food and Recipes: From Chef Mario Batali: Grilled Easter Lamb, Pasta, Cheese Dishes: "From Denny: Chef Mario Batali is rolling out a simple easy to do Easter dinner. He is also rolling out a new TV show in September of this year where he and a few friends discuss food and pop culture. It sounded like the name of this new show is 'The Chew.' If it's as good as his serial food show he and Mark Bittman and Gwyneth Paltrow did on Spain it should be a joy to watch - and learn.

On the Good Morning America set Chef Batali treated us to an Italian style Easter meal where the Italians love to celebrate the food of the season. If you enjoy potatoes as much as cheesy pasta, then his Pastiera dish is for you. Even vegetarians can enjoy this meal for the side dishes with cheese and eggs.

As usual Chef Mario has everything simplified so you can enjoy your holiday. Take a look at this wonderful grilled lamb dish.

Recipes Featured:

Butterflied Leg of Lamb with Garlic, Rosemary and Mint
Agnolotti Alla Primavera
Asparagus Milanese
Pastiera"

Poems From A Spiritual Heart: Angel Diaries: Samuel

My little girl



Poems From A Spiritual Heart: Angel Diaries: Samuel: "How do you recognize when an angel has truly come into your life? Do you remember your angel sightings or did the moment pass you by?"

Poems From A Spiritual Heart: Stephen Colbert Interviews Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg About Poetry


Poems From A Spiritual Heart: Stephen Colbert Interviews Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg About Poetry: "From Denny: While Stephen Colbert, of The Colbert Report, is known for his satire and wildly funny self, he does manage to do some almost serious interviews. In this case, Caroline Kennedy, daughter of President John F. Kennedy, is rolling out a book of poetry.

This book, 'She Walks In Beauty,' is comprised of men writing poems about women to celebrate them. The collection is about women celebrating themselves, describing the special connection women have to poetry from growing up in the world of emotion."

Grandma Wisdom Rules: Old Female Elephant Protects Herd

Elephant Face

From Denny: Women know best. :) And the old ladies really know best. At least that's what researchers discovered when they blasted the roar of a male lion out onto the plain where a herd of elephants were gathered.

The 66 year old female, Joyce, took matters into hand and packed everyone into a tighter group, assuring greater protection for the youngest. Since she is too old to bear any more babies, researchers think that the older elephants pay more attention to group safety.

Well, at least this family group listens to Grandma. Grandma saved the day. Maybe we all need to start listening to more of our own grandmothers. They just might have some long life experience and wisdom to pass along that could keep us safe.

Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food: Posts Roundup at Dennys Blogs - 17 April 2011


Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food: Posts Roundup at Dennys Blogs - 17 April 2011: "While the Japanese nuclear crisis continues unabated, the rest of the world has moved on, dreading the inevitable. At the moment the world community has pressured Japan to come up with a plan to contain or deal with the crisis over a nine month period.

Why the same people are in charge of this mess that created the mess is a mystery. It's as foolish as it was to trust BP to clean up the oil spill disaster in my own Gulf of Mexico. Serious hardships still exist as a result of President Obama and BP refusing to do what it takes to make things right, especially in Louisiana.

At the very least the President could do is refuse to allow BP access to any of America's oil fields on or off shore. The company has simply not earned the right to drill for oil on American soil or in our oceans."

Best Spiritual Posts: Wonderful Love Photo And Quote

Best Spiritual Posts: Wonderful Love Photo And Quote: "Over at flickr I've easily amassed a bookmarked database of over 8,000 photos of other people's photos I've enjoyed as I traveled through the site. Here's another from a sensitive - and spiritually minded - photographer who included a wonderful quote."

Self-Absorption: How Do You Find The Road Map To Spiritual Maturity?

♥ Love - Agapi - Aşk ♥ Explored


From Denny:   Today I was thinking about a middle-aged friend who is getting married for her first time this month.  Let's say it plain: the woman is a diva personality, excessively self-absorbed.  She's musically talented beyond belief yet a bit emotionally wearing at times, yes, a high maintenance kitty. :)

As long as a person is not intentionally cruel, well, I've always had the heart - and the patience - for most difficult personalities: the divas.  I've invested as long as seven to 12 years in each person to coax them into maturity.  Why?  Besides the fact I understand why they have the issues they do I also know they have the capacity to go out into the world to help others on a much larger scale once they do mature.  Over the long term it can turn into a good investment for the world.

The reason for this woman's self-absorption is because she was severely abused, molested repeatedly, in her childhood - by her own mother.  As a result, all her relationships have been difficult, understandably involving issues of trust.  And did I mention her father was an enabler of the mother?  That same mother went on to molest her grandchildren too.  It's a sick situation from which none of the adult children have recovered after decades of trying to heal themselves by ignoring the spiritual element.

Best Spiritual Posts: Music Video: My Sweet Lord By Beatle George Harrison

Best Spiritual Posts: Music Video: My Sweet Lord By Beatle George Harrison: "Learning to operate in a powerful musical anointing is no easy feat, especially the one given to The Beatles. They were young men who had no clue as to what their long and lasting legacy would prove to be. They also had no clue as to what the Spirit of God was calling them."

The Social Poets: 12 Best of The Web Funny April Fools Day: Pranked, Spoofed and Trashed


The Social Poets: 12 Best of The Web Funny April Fools Day: Pranked, Spoofed and Trashed: "There are those among us - of a cheeky bent - who look forward to this one day a year when people forgive us for pranking them. Today the web was full of April Fool's Day fun from every angle, a real bumper crop of craziness!

1 - First up: Google leads the fun with their prank about their new feature of 'motion-controlled' email. After all, typing on a keyboard is 'so last century,' right? And Google says it's also 'outdated' and 'inefficient.'

'To open a message make a movement as if you were opening an envelope. To reply, simply point backward with your thumb,' Google says in a video demonstration. More instructions? 'To reply all, use both hands. To send a message, lick a stamp and place it down.'

Well, you too can look like a complete fool by believing this satire and standing up in your office cubicle on Freaky Friday and get elected Fool Of The Day by using various body language to instruct your computer. It's like using cat body language to write an email. Hey, whatever floats your boat."

Dennys Art Sanctuary: 35 Stunning April Wallpapers


Dennys Art Sanctuary: 35 Stunning April Wallpapers: "OK, I found all my favorites for the month of April out there in Wallpaper Land and posted them here for you. These are mainly desktop wallpapers, available without the calendars and in various sizes. Don't worry about the screen shot if it has a year on it as there are those images available without a specific date. All of these images were vetted to avoid that frustration. There are some wallpapers available for smaller technology than a desktop and there are links to the designers' sites. These beauties were found in the 'basement archives' of Smashing Magazine. Enjoy!"

The Social Poets: Funny April Fools Day - Cheeky Quote Day 31 Mar 2010


The Social Poets: Funny April Fools Day - Cheeky Quote Day 31 Mar 2010: "Just how old is the April Fools Day custom? Back in the 1500's, about 1582 in France, the day began as a way to ridicule stodgy people who were too stubborn to change with the times. Spring time is the season of change and cultures have always honored it. What funnier way to honor the concept of change in our lives than to play an April Fool's Day joke on someone? Tell yourself to be a good sport if you find yourself on the other side of that practical joke. The whole point of the day is to learn how to laugh at yourself because that is a sure sign that you are no fool. Ah, the road to wisdom... :)"
