Happy St.Valentines day!

I sometimes stick a page into the gutter to hold my spot and some books require several pages or the double treatment.  The first pic I took had misc. junque in the background so added a piece of red cardstock and got the reflection and shadow instead.

When I emptied the camera I found these pics of a sunset that i had taken a couple weeks ago and had forgotten they were still in the camera.Crappy pics but they were so tiny i had to enlarge quite a bit.

This is the view of the Alex Fraser Bridge that we get from our sunroom and there’s nothing but sunset here. So was i surprised when i saw the next one.....

Same sunset but several orbs and trails in the sky, some far away and others barely visible

This one came right up close. I cropped the bottom off the pic and it wasn’t right in the corner like that; it was more like a third of the way up from the bottom. I wondered if there was any news about orbs so googled and found out they’re quite plentiful. There’s people who can actually see them with the naked eye while most merely catch them in some of their pictures.

Some say orbs are caused by the cameras flash or maybe a strange phenomenon of dust or mist or bugs or pollen but all of those kinds of theories have been proven wrong.
Others believe they’re human souls or ghosts floating around.
Some of the google pics show large groups of them congregating or socializing.
What are they? Where do they come from?

Well, i believe everyone can believe whatever they want.  There’s been several times in my life when I was saved by an unknown energy from definite calamity and who knows; maybe it was my guardian angel in the form of an orb. There was one time in particular when a very strong force pushed and guided me into safety and i know it wasn't just chance or coincidence but what we call a miracle.  So who or what helped me? Sounds nutsy but maybe it was an orb.  I think they’re always around, just because they aren't often seen doesn’t mean they're not there and ready to help. Guardian angels, thats a good explanation and the one i'll go with.

What do you believe?

everything you ever wanted to know about number two

What’s so special about  February?  So glad you asked….well it’s the 2nd month and it’s the month of my birthday!

So, what’s better than one 2?  Two 2’s!  That’s my day.

It’s said that people born on Feb. 22nd have old souls. Also born on 2-22 George Washington and Drew Barrymore. We are Pisces; the sign of the fishes

The roman numeral 11 stands for “bright giant”
Two is the atomic number of helium.

There’s an old Chinese saying “all good things come in twos” So today I’ll show you 22 pictures.

What’s better than having a baby girl? Having 2 baby girls!
Here’s my twins at age 7

My favourite NHL players are #22 Daniel Sedin and his twin Henrik #33 of the Vancouver Canucks.

Twins in mythology: Apollo and Artemis and Romulus and Remus.

Actors who have (or had) a twin: Elvis, Ashton Kutcher, Alanis Morissette, Parker Posey, Ed Sullivan and the Olsen twins

 Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

Fictional twins: Man in Black/John Locke/Smoke Monster,
Ok that’s triplets but who’s counting when we’re talking about Lost
The Bobbsey twins, Super Mario brothers,
Marge Simpsons older twin sisters; Selma and Patty Bouvier

Here’s a couple of bucks - toonie - looks crappy in the pic but is actually shiny and quite pretty irl
Here’s the 2 peanuts from my famous big shell. I hit a big one that day!

I play deuces wild on occasion. Contrary to popular belief it’s not just a kids game but a game of skill. Lots of moola is wasted by players who don’t check the payouts and hold the wrong cards (hint: 2 pairs don't pay and if holding only one card remember - face cards are no more valuable than 3's thru 10's)
Lots of players don't realise they can still get the big payout Royal Flush (as long as no wild card shows up) and it's a nice surprise when it happens. But of course if one or more deuces show up it's still a Royal Flush; it just pays less. Shown here is 5 -fives's but it's the 4 wild cards that are the big winner.

What’s the most widely used and famous pencil?  #2 of course and it even has a book written about it

Question: Why then is it still #2? Let’s have tea for 2 and figure that one out.

In Mathematics divisibility by 2 is easily tested by merely looking at the last digit. If it’s even then the whole number is even.

2 has more divisors than 1

Two has the unique property that 2+2 = 2·2 = 2²=2↑↑2=2↑↑↑2, and so on, no matter how high the operation is.

In numerology #2 represents the opposite of #1
People who are #2’s are good natured, easy going, co-operative and soft, not physically strong.

Number 22 is the master builder and the most successful of all numbers. It governs the overall structure of Scripture from the 22 spokes of the Bible wheel to the 22 spokes of the inner wheel of Revelation.

In the Tarot deck the Fool is sometimes represented as 0 (the 1st card) or as 22 (the last card)

Number 2 is the High Priestess in the Major Arcana of 22 cards in the Tarot deck or the trump card.
Number 2 Tarot cards
Spades - Swords - Air
Diamond - Coins - Earth

Clubs - Wands - Fire

Hearts - Cups - Water

 Theres tons of special days in Feb. cuz it‘s a great month; here’s just a few more - on Feb.1st the RCMP became official in Canada in 1920

Just 28 days in Feb.2011 and it’s honoured by being Public Sleeping Day - yes; you can sleep on a park bench, on a blanket at the beach, on the job, whatever….

In closing I have a question:
Is the person in charge of human waste disposal referred to as number 1 or number 2?
