7 Point Crochet Blankie

So far... Started with white again, and will continue with it for a few more rounds. I make this by mistake. It's supposed to be a 6-point star blankie, but I've never made one by starting with a circle, and it just seemed to come out this way.

So, more white. For now.

City Cousin and the Country Cousin

A New York boy was being led through the swamps of Louisiana by his cousin.

"Is it true that an alligator won't attack you if you carry a flashlight?"

The cousin smirked and replied, "Depends on how fast ya carry thet flashlight."

The Equal Right

"The equal right of every citizen to the free exercise of his Religion according to the dictates of conscience" is held by the same tenure with all our other rights."

"Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" American Minute

American Minute with Bill Federer


"Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" announced President Ronald Reagan at the Berlin Wall, JUNE 12, 1987.

Begun after Lenin's Bolshevik Revolution in 1917, the Soviet Union existed from 1922 to 1991.



With its motto 'Workers of the World, Unite!' the Soviet tactic of conquest was to train agitators and organizers - "agent provocateurs" - to stir up riots so that the public would accept a military enforced marshal law to restore order.




Franklin Roosevelt addressed Delegates of the American Youth Congress, February 10, 1940:

"Some of you are Communists... You have no American right, by act or deed of any kind, to subvert the Government and the Constitution of this Nation."



Instead of setting up a utopian paradise, the workers were simply used as "useful idiots" to set up a communist dictatorship which gained totalitarian control over some 293 million people across 11 time zones.


Addressing naive students that thought communism would redistribute wealth equally, President Franklin Roosevelt told the American Youth Congress, February 10, 1940:

"The Soviet Union...is run by a dictatorship as absolute as any other dictatorship in the world."



Under the Soviet dictatorship:

-privacy was nonexistent;
-press was censored;
-free speech disappeared;
-healthcare was rationed;
-economy was regulated;
-private industry was collectivized;
-political dissent was punished;


-media and entertainment was propagandized;
-children's education became indoctrination;
-marriage and families were subject to social engineering;
-religion was suppressed; and
-human life was valued only by its usefulness to the soviet society.



Franklin Roosevelt stated, February 10, 1940:

"I disliked the regimentation under Communism. I abhorred the indiscriminate killings of thousands of innocent victims...


...I heartily deprecated the banishment of religion,

though I knew that some day Russia would return to religion for the simple reason that four or five thousand years of recorded history have proven that mankind has always believed in God in spite of many abortive attempts to exile God..."

Mother's Day Crochet

I've been battling infections, tooth pain, tooth extraction, corn allergy, and now tomorrow it's Mother's Day. And no gift for my mother. I tried to make a bookmark, but it was getting to hard, the meds corn me, even as they heal me. So, I came up with this book mark for her Bible. I hope she likes it... Hope you all enjoy your weekend.

Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Birthday and a Few Good Quotes


American Minute
"We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence."-MLK, Jr.

Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated APRIL 4, 1968.



Pastor of Atlanta's Ebenezer Baptist Church, he rose to national prominence through the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.



Awarded the Nobel Prize in 1964, Congress set aside his birthday as a National Holiday.



Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., as well as Archbishop Desmond Tutu, were influenced by the German Confessing Church leader Deitrich Bonhoeffer, who resisted Hitler's anti-Christian totalitarianism.


Rev. King was also influenced by the non-violent methods of India's Mahatma Gandhi who resisted Britain's centralized big government.



Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said August 28, 1963:

"Now is the time to open the doors of opportunity to all of God's children...

In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds.

Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.


We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence....

Working on a Crochet Mario Brothers Star Blankie

For one of my son's friend, who may Some Day fall in love and Some Day get married, and Some Day even have a baby. He really likes Mario Brothers, so a blankie seems like a good idea for when I'm wanting to do mindless crochet. I'm using Knit Picks Brava™Sport yarn. I sure hope Son's Friend likes it. I am wondering if he might think I'm going to play Matchmaker or something, haha! angel


This is the guideline I'm using, because I'm not using the star blanket pattern she's using. It's just a guide: http://www.agamerswife.com/2009/06/super-mario-bros-star-blanket.html

I'm just using brighter colors I saw on another site: http://knottyknotty.blogspot.com/2013/06/more-than-stars-in-sky.html

Have a good evening.
