When your head hits the pillow tonight





Remember the smiles of the day, the laughter, the warm words,
and let everything else go.

Put the lessons learned in a file marked ‘done’ and give yourself a pat on the back for the things you got right.

Leave the stresses of tomorrow where they belong, tomorrow.

Leave the stresses of today where they belong too.

And let the night take away the heavy weight from your shoulders.
Let it go.

Let yourself be safe.
Let yourself be still.
Let yourself be at rest.

When your head hits the pillow tonight my friend, let sleep come and let your soul get ready for a new day.

You did your best today.
You did enough.

We are all just doing our best with no rule book, in a game with no referee and no half-time. None of us are getting it…

“Climate change” suddenly seems irrelevant: Bank of England drops it, and Biden drills for Big-oil

Iowa Climate Science Education

By Jo Nova

Strange things are happening in the calm before the storm?

Thanks to NewZeroWatch

This week the financial world balances on the edge, and all the old rules have broken. Joe Biden is signing off on an oil drilling program on US soil which he said he?d never do ? and it?s one of the largest ever ? like building ?66 new coal plants?. At the same time the Bank of England is apparently cutting the sacred climate change spending, and has leaked this news to the world.

As someone said on Twitter, ?last week was a different country?.

After all these years, climate change has fallen out of the Weekly Hit Parade of Panic.

By Ellen Milligan and Philip Aldrick, Bloomberg

Climate programs will slip lower on the central bank?s agenda so officials can focus more on the core operations such as financial stability?

As Dr Benny…

PETITION UPDATE: Woman Who Skinned Husky Gets Disappointingly Weak Sentence

Sign This Petition

Amber Barnes, a hunter from Montana, received a weak sentence after she shot, killed, and skinned a husky and posted photos praising the kill on social media.

Barnes, who allegedly believed the dog was a “wolf pup,” pleaded no-contest to animal cruelty, meaning that she accepts her conviction but does not admit guilt, according to news reports.

A judge from Flathead County District Court then gave Barnes a 6-month deferred sentence, which means she is not required to go to jail. The sentence only requires her to not hunt for a 6-month period and, during that time period, complete a hunting safety class.

The class will be conducted online and, as long as she completes these simple orders, her record will be wiped clean, according to news reports.

The husky’s life is worth more than a measly hunting class. While Barnes takes the class from the comfort of her home, the young dog is gone forever.

To add insult to injury, Barnes received her sentencing in February, but Montana’s hunting season starts in September. Her 6-month hunting ban is useless considering she likely wouldn’t have hunted during this time period regardless of her sentencing.

The outrage of the more than 42,000 people who signed our petition urging prosecutors to treat this case seriously demonstrates the public’s desire for animal laws to change. To those who signed our petition, we wholeheartedly thank you. We at Lady Freethinker will continue to urge law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges to hold animal abusers fully accountable.

A 6-month deferred sentence for the glorified killing of a dog is not nearly a strong enough sentence. We urge the judge to take future cases of animal cruelty more seriously.
