It was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981 to coincide with the opening of the General Assembly. The first Peace Day was celebrated in September 1982........ Anyone, anywhere can celebrate Peace Day. It can be as simple as lighting a candle at noon, or just sitting in silent meditation. Or it can involve getting your co-workers, organization, community or government engaged in a large event. The impact if millions of people in all parts of the world, coming together for one day of peace, is immense." *Join in shaPeace Day2012-09-26 09:30:00625

i once asked my dad why my paw paw always looked so stern and solemn, he said 'that's just determination, son, he's had a hard life'.  this is my paw paw and his mule, whose eyes are more piercing?  whose jaw is more set?  whose challenge is more pronounced?  he was a grand ole man who sat for hours on the front porch with me in his later years.  he went to town with us once (in the sixties- he was in his seventies) and saw his first mini-skirt...shoulda heard the comments about the world's morals nowadays.

when i was a kid (a day or two ago to be sure) we'd see these in the cow pastures and fields and looked like a football to us :), you learned quick not to be kicking them when dried out.  all the old folks dipped snuff and when we asked what the fog was that blasted from the shell, they always said 'aw, that's just the devil's snuff' :)
don't know any themes that like spores, so ...
bet most have never seen these, anyone who has will certainly remember :) hope you like this everybody.  have a great weekend.

I fully support the right to free speech both online and off, but assert that free speech is not protected when it involves threats to the emotional or physical safety of anyone. I further assert that online harassment is about power in a community: a power structure that has tended to accept or ignore harassment rather than actively seek to cease it.  I will not tolerate a power structure that ignores or accepts online harassment.  (1)

something new to me.  i had never seen an angel trumpet until my friend +brendasue watson shared one on g+.  told my sister, she had one, and gave me 4 cuttings of hers and i set them out first of spring this year.  3 are about a foot tall and healthy, this one amazed me.  the porch is 4' high and the post behind the flower is a 4 x 4.
don't really know where to submit it but wanted to share it.  i was impressed :)
if anyone knows or wants to share with a floral theme please be my guest.  since it's part of my yardscape, thought i'd try #landscapephotograpy   curated by +Margaret Tompkins +Carra Riley +paul t beard +Ke Zeng  hope you like :)

so many tragedies in so short a time sometimes cast shadows on our daily lives.  the twin towers on 911, and it was a 911 call to us all, dachau,  the horrors there.   many senseless acts of evil and terrorism that threaten to overshadow our very existence and beliefs allow the few to dominate the many for a moment in time.  our time here has been brief compared to the whole and we must remember that each of us is a part of all there is and concentrate on being a good part of that whole not a hole in that part.
i humbly submit this to remind us all to be a part, to do our part, everyday.

some of us do have a holiday weekend ahead.  looking forward to it.:). all of us should make our own holidays when we need them.  all of us need a break from time to time, just a chance to rest, relax, kick back and re-charge.  my best to all everyday, let's enjoy everyday.

sometimes all of us procrastinate, put someone off, delay a decision, or forget to do something we really meant to do.  sometimes, that delay is pretty important.

i know i've shared this before at different places, but the poem and picture keep getting separated.  i wanted to re-share in a new format, keeping them together.  for those who have already seen it, thanks for your indulgence and maybe you'd like to see it again.  i have gotten many new friends adding me lately and maybe this can be a welcome for all of you as well. if i had to pick a favorite this would be it, the responses i have had to it before have been few but very complimentary.  this was the first mini video i put on youtube in my 'sounds of silence' series and can also be seen at     http://poemsbyleebattles.weebly.com/
come join me, have a cup of coffee or tea and just relax.
