UFO, From Venus I Came

Have you been waiting for an opportunity to buy this long out of print book? Omnec has given me permission to release a new version of the book as a CDR, readable on your PC. The original book was scanned onto disc, along with the illustrations. As a bonus, there are some wonderful paintings by Gilbert Williams that have been added that nicely compliment the text.

The original book is 280 pages, and it is all here, plus the bonus pages. If you have a CD reader on your computer you are good to go. All you do is insert the disc. If a little box appears you chose the option "View as a slide show". The cover will appear and then you can just read at your own pace. What you see are scans of the printed page.

This is not an audio CD, just to be perfectly clear. It is all visual.

My intention is to eventually make a down-loadable version available, as well as a print version. To that end, I am releasing this version to people I know as a way to begin to make it available and to raise funds for this next stage of the project.

You can purchase now by clicking on the donate button. Choose any amount, minimum $25. Don't forget to fill in your street address when you make the purchase so I know where to send it. In the box marked special instructions please write. "I promise not to copy this disc or reproduce it in any form". Your transaction won't be processed without this promise! (You can still print out the book for your own use.)
I will ship your disc within 24 hours via USPS 1st class. Thanks!

Here is a website my son and some friends in Germany have put up:

I listen to the radio a lot online and I was using the Windows Media Player as my default. It was annoying though, lots of repeats of sentences, etc. I guess the problem was not smooth buffering.

I did a little research online and found Winamp. Its a free download so I thought I would try it, why not? It has turned out to be a superior piece of software. The buffering problem is solved, very smooth play. Highly recommended.

Another bonus was the very cool free visualization software that is included with Winamp. I love the moving, changes images so much that I had purchased a copy of G-Force some time ago. This plays on the Windows Media Player. Its still a very cool program that I enjoy and I don't regret the purchase, but the Winamp player has its own version of this psychedelic light show that is great and its free. So kudos to Winamp!

Life's Purpose

Sonia Choquette has quickly become one of my favorite new teachers. She is such a delight! Here are a few gems from her:

Thousand petaled Lotus means we have a thousand gifts. Make our day sharing as many of our gifts as we can.

What is your purpose? Your purpose is to share those gifts! Just do something, do something for somebody!

Classic Wisdom from the Upanishads

* Watch your thoughts; they become words.
* Watch your words; they become actions.
* Watch your actions; they become habits.
* Watch your habits; they become your character.
* Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Aldous Huxley called it the Perennial Philosophy. The truth seekers of every generation rediscover it but it has been around forever; advice that is as good today as it was 5000 years ago:)

Qualities of Passion

Two people posted videos today on Facebook and Twitter and I was struck by the contrast in the qualities of passion expressed. The first was a wonderful tribute to Janis Joplin. Check it out:

Quincy Jones posted a link to this video on Twitter, a wonderful version of "We are the World" sung in Espanol to benefit Haiti. Given it your attention please:

Feel the difference? The first is a celebration of personal pleasure and the second is a celebration of working together for the greater good:)

Holographic Universe

This highly provocative and interesting video was apparently made around the turn of the century, but it is still very relevant. Defiantly worth a few minutes of your time:

21 Puns

1. Two antennas met on a roof, fell in love and got married. The ceremony wasn't much, but the reception was excellent.

2. A jumper cable walks into a bar. The bartender says, "I'll serve you, but don't start anything."

3. Two peanuts walk into a bar, and one was a salted.

4. A dyslexic man walks into a bra.

5. A man walks into a bar with a slab of asphalt under his arm and says: "A beer please, and one for the road."

6. Two cannibals are eating a clown. One says to the other: "Does this taste funny to you?"

7. "Doc, I can't stop singing 'The Green, Green Grass of Home.'" "That sounds like Tom Jones Syndrome." "Is it common?" Well, "It's Not Unusual."

8. Two cows are standing next to each other in a field. Daisy says to Dolly, "I was artificially inseminated this morning." "I don't believe you," says Dolly. "It's true, no bull!" exclaims Daisy.

9. An invisible man marries an invisible woman. The kids were nothing to look at either. 10. Deja Moo: The feeling that you've heard this bull before.

11. I went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I couldn't find any.

12. A man woke up in a hospital after a serious accident. He shouted, "Doctor, doctor, I can't feel my legs!" The doctor replied, "I know you can't - I've cut off your arms!"

13. I went to a seafood disco last week...and pulled a mussel.

14. What do you call a fish with no eyes? A fsh.

15. Two fish swim into a concrete wall. The one turns to the other and says "Dam!"

16. Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, so they lit a fire in the craft. Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it too.

17. A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse. "But why," they asked, as they moved off. "Because," he said, "I can't stand chess-nuts boasting in an open foyer."

18. A woman has twins and gives them up for adoption. One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named "Ahmal." The other goes to a family in Spain; they name him "Juan." Years later, Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother. Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband that she wishes she also had a picture of Ahmal. Her husband responds, "They're twins! If you've seen Juan, you've seen Ahmal."

19. Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him. (Oh, man, this is so bad, it's good...) A super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

20. And finally, there was the person who sent twenty different puns to his friends, with the hope that at least ten of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did!
