Vote Pro-Life0There is an event set up for this on facebook by http://www.ifmypeople2012.org/  I do not know enough about them to endorse the organization, but the event is an excellent idea.  From facebook:Join us for 40 Days of Prayer starting on Sept 28 and ending on our national election day, Nov 6. Commit to at least 5 minutes of prayer for our nation each day. We will send out a Prayer Video from 40 different National Prayer Leaders each day encouraging people to pray for a relevant topic for our nation. We also encourage you to pray thoughout the day during this 40 days with your family, coworkers, church family or however you feel led.www.ifmypeople2012.org2 Chronicles 7:14"if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land".https://www.facebook.com/events/355828731152930/However, I want to add to this for the G+ event.  For those who don't remember, this page (Vote Pro-Life) was started as the result of a failed attempt to get #voteprolife  trending here on Google+.  September 28th is the date for a repeat attempt, coinciding with the start of this event.  Please spread the word to your friends, family, and everyone else you can think of.  40 Days of Prayer for America2012-09-29 01:00:00198G+

Gailen Mapes66,871Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  I-K - 6 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-08-06 10:25:22128407CC G+

Welcome to  this week's Mojito Art Friday's Assignment*
Part of Mojito Art Circle -- A Circle with a Twist  

Today's Assignment (08.29.14): Street Tales

[This week: Image, theme title, description and Guest-co-curating by +Liz C  ]

Street Tales

This past weekend, Gplus lost an amazing street photographer, +Maria Roco. Her Parisian photography was an open love letter to the entire city, and followers around the world enjoyed her art. Her warm spirit was reflected in the words and pictures she shared with us, inspiring Gplussers to start or improve their own street photography.

Street Tales

This past weekend, Gplus lost an amazing street photographer, +Maria Roco. Her Parisian photography was an open love letter to the entire city, and followers around the world enjoyed her art.

Maria captured the beauty of the people around her in visual stories as she traveled the streets of Paris. This week, let’s celebrate her contributions to Gplus by sharing pictures of the people around us. Black and white, even better!

Thanks +Robert Rouse  - many good points, especially "Everything’s farther apart than you think
From Texarkana, it’d take you just as long to drive to Chicago as it would to drive to El Paso.!"

Tea and Crumpets anyone?
I have been re-reading some Dorothy Sayers mystery novels (Yep, Lord Peter Wimsey) and they keep having 'tea and crumpets'
So . . .  after an extensive internet (i.e. Google) search and reading numerous recipes I finally picked one. It was ok, but needs some fine tuning.
This is my first batch, but not my last. Doing some recipe comparing - will come up with my own, before I will share any recipe, so don't ask!
Oh, about the crumpet rings, I improvised my own with aluminum foil this time. I will be ordering some!

I mashed together two of my favorite desserts into one glorious frozen treat - a coconut macaroon ice cream pie! I'm biased, but it's pretty darn tasty.

I know it's wrong to have a "favorite" granddaughter, but I do. She's not the first one, or the last one, but there has always been a special bond between us. As an infant, I fed her, changed her diaper, and could put her to sleep. She has spent almost every Friday night with us for 11 years and many afternoons with just the two of us. 
Oh, by the way, her mother was my favorite daughter (so, she was my only daughter)!

Spaghetti and meatballs.
My mother never  fixed Spaghetti this way. She made a (very good) sauce with ground beef and tomato sauce. I had decided to make some Italian meat balls for a pot luck at my church last Sunday and there were a few left over, so . . . tonight's supper!

Living in dry west Texas doesn't give a lot of opportunities to photograph water falls, This is an artificial one the city (San Angelo) has put in to help aerate the water in the Concho River flowing through town.
It is a nice place to visit during the week. If you close your eyes to listen it is easy to imagine a different setting.___A photo I shared in the soothing photography community'

A historical perspective

The current situation in Iraq gives us insight to why crusades were called for. 2/3 of the 'Christian world' had been raped, murdered brutally and abused.

The First Crusade was called in 1095 by Pope Urban II who proclaimed that the Muslims had,

'invaded the lands of those Christians and has depopulated them by the sword, pillage and fire; it has led away a part of the captives into its own country, and a part it has destroyed by cruel tortures; it has either entirely destroyed the churches of God or appropriated them for the rites of its own religion. They destroy the altars, after having defiled them with their uncleanness. They circumcise the Christians, and the blood of the circumcision they either spread upon the altars or pour into the vases of the baptismal font. When they wish to torture people by a base death, they perforate their navels, and dragging forth the extremity of the intestines, bind it to a stake; then with flogging they lead the victim around until the viscera having gushed forth the victim falls prostrate upon the ground. Others they bind to a post and pierce with arrows. Others they compel to extend their necks and then, attacking them with naked swords, attempt to cut through the neck with a single blow. What shall I say of the abominable rape of the women? To speak of it is worse than to be silent. The kingdom of the Greeks is now dismembered by them and deprived of territory so vast in extent that it can not be traversed in a march of two months. On whom therefore is the labor of avenging these wrongs and of recovering this territory incumbent, if not upon you? You, upon whom above other nations God has conferred remarkable glory in arms, great courage, bodily activity, and strength to humble the hairy scalp of those who resist you.'
