A cat, a horse and unreasonable expectations

first_img Sheri Mr. Towne, your story is a lesson we can all learn from. You spoke the absolute truth and it resonates deeper than you can imagine. As we continue to address issues within our beloved community, one hard fact is that as we continue to be passionate about improving the quality of life of our community, we shouldn’t let the disappointments of the reality that not everyone is on the same page discourage us from continuing to do what’s right because it’s the right thing to do.

Rod Love Reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 center_img Charles Towne InspirationBy Charles TowneDepending on a cat to clean its own litter box is just a tad beyond reasonable! It is the same with people.If you imagine that you are going to change another person you are in for a big disappointment.   I mean, we have difficulty changing ourselves so where do we get off with the idea that we can bring about transformation in others?Talk about unrealistic expectations!Unrealistic expectations, be they in a marriage, a friendship, or a business relationship, can be a strong indication that help is needed. I will never forget the time I discovered one of our horses bogged down in the river. He was belly deep in mud and about to go down in two feet of water which would have been the end for him because there was no way I would be able to rescue him by myself.I took a short piece of rope from the boat, and rigging a hackamore, got in front of that beast and began pulling. My meager encouragement was all the horse needed. His eyes rolled, he snorted, lunged, and ran right over me. The next thing I knew I was on my back in two feet of water and another two feet of mud, with a hoof print in the center of my chest! When I was able to finally extricate myself the horse was disappearing up the river at very high speed.He didn’t even stick around to rescue me, and I figured he would have appreciated my assistance! A pox on all horses.Now I told that story to illustrate that we can help others, but there is little we can do to change them, be they horses or people. Horses and people get themselves into trouble and at times, more often than not, only God can rescue them.Live Fully,Love OpenlyAnd make a difference, todayCharles Towne is a longtime Apopka resident, member of Insp!re Church and a published author.

I really appreciated your observations so very much. Many dear folks want help, need help , but many, not all by any means, fail to realize that the help comes with a price. Part of said to my way of thinking is gratitude. This to me, at 82 years old, is somewhat of conundrum # 2 . That goofy horse sure as the dickens needed help, but as I spit water and cleaned mud out of my ears he didn’t somehow seem all that grateful .May Papa God bless you and yours Rod, sincerely yours Charles Towne Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

The Ross Skeate Diary – Unbeaten at home for a year

first_imgFriday Mar 26, 2010 The Ross Skeate Diary – Unbeaten at home for a year Toulon play away at Bourgoin tonight as they look to stay in the top five on the table in the French Top 14. So it’s a good time for us to catch up with lock Ross Skeate, as he gives us a bit of a recap of the season so far, talks about All Black centres, and touches on the great progress the side have made lately. What an adventure this season has been then and yes I use the word adventure intentionally. Between all the big name signings of the pre-season to the tough battles on and off the pitch, throw in a few come from behind victories as well as a few lost in the final minutes, I suppose its just been your average rugby season then.Its the proverbial roller coaster and with a possibility of a home playoff spot, if we finish well, it seems as though the roller coaster keeps on climbing in anticipation of that stomach-lurching plunge. Lets hope the inevitable plunge comes when we let our hair down after being crowned champions of France! Its just fine to be ambitious isnt it?Coming into the second part of the season we found ourselves poised more or less where we wanted to be but unfortunately far from safe and sound in the top six, primarily due to a host of other teams also playing so damn well. Tough league it certainly bloody is.I mean that is where its all at isn’t it? Finishing top 6, making a Heineken Cup appearance, more exposure for the club and better business in the long run. Maybe Mourad will meet my 2million euros a year contract suggestion, or was it 3? I forget now. Waiting for that dotted line in anticipation.Either way, with so many victories under our belt (together with Perpignan we lead the league with 14 wins from our 22 matches) and a year long undefeated record at home injecting some much needed points as well as confidence. If all goes well coming into the final games of the season, we could be running out to a little Pilou-Pilou chanting come playoff time.It’s just a pity that last-minute defeats against Montpellier (20 point turnaround in the second-half) as well as missed opportunities against Castres and Montauban might come back to bite us in the arse. I mean we would be sitting pretty in the top two if it wasn’t for those.But regrets are a slippery slope – I mean there’s still that ex-girlfriend I should have avoided! Bygones are bygones and its it’s all about what’s to come.That all starts with our away game this Friday night against a powerful Bourgoin side who are fighting their own battles to stay afloat in the Top14. That reminds me of the good times of yesteryear when I arrived to the club and we were in the midst of our own relegation battle at the time which of course in retrospect seems crazy that a squad as good as ours had any trouble at all.A measure of how far we have come and such is the nature of our successes this year, that we are eyeing home playoff and semi-final spots.Its always rewarding being part of something and I’m hugely proud of the teams progression and how big a part I have played in that. Hopefully the team will continue to build and go from success to success from here on in and find ourselves dancing in Stade Mayol after a few more victories.As mentioned earlier it has been a year since we’ve lost there, the last time being a final minute drop goal win to Perpignan last season. Fortress Mayol is something that we spoke about wanting to establish, its obviously not just down to what happens on the pitch though, the crowd are unbelievable and I truly believe have played a significant role in that fine home record.Of course victories do come with a price though, the latest being Chris Loamanu who suffered a dislocated hip in our last game’s victory against Castres. I couldn’t think of a crazier and more painful injury and he shall be a big loss to us. The game itself was a huge victory for us as it ensured the final run into the seasons finale would be that much easier.Well OK it’s definitely not going to be easy in any shape or form, but our standing on the table after that now sees us well-placed.We are lucky enough to have a pretty good medical joker to fill Chris’ big shoes though – Tana Umaga, ring any bells? Big guy, played centre for the All Blacks, no not the one with the eye-liner, the other, better older one.Oh and theres that Jonny Wilkinson guy who’s returned to the squad this week fresh from his England Six Nations duty. Perhaps he didnt get the plaudits and took some criticism in the media for his displays for England but he certainly manages to get the exciting backs in our side away, does serious damage both offensively and defensively and of course with the boot as well.Felipe Contepomi has been standing in for him and has been scintillating, so that augurs well for us as big game players are whats going to pull us through those tight situations in the season run-in.Great squad with great ambitions but more importantly even greater potential.Much Love and heres to the final push of the seasonSkeato ————————————————————————————————————– Take a look at Skeato’s website for more insights, which includes great photos and blog entries about life in Toulon.

Mostly the judgments connected to a state is being translated and uploaded in the language of that state. Last year, the Supreme Court had started to make its judgments available in regional languages. A separate tab titled ‘Vernacular Judgments’ was added to the home page of the Supreme Court Portal. Initially, the translation was made to six vernacular languages: Assamese, Hindi, Kannada, Marathi, Odia and Telugu. On finding that the translation is not being made to Malayalam, the Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan had then written to the then Chief Justice of India and Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad requesting that all Supreme Court judgments should be made available in Malayalam also. Anyhow, the Supreme Court is seen to have positively considered this request and is making available the Malayalam version of the judgments in cases related to Kerala.The translation is being done using an indigenously developed software by the electronic software wing of the Supreme Court. However all these regional language versions have a ‘disclaimer’ attached to it it at the end. It states that for all official and practical purposes, the judgments published in English shall be used. It further clarifies that the translated version in regional languages are only for the better understanding of the litigants. Next Storylast_img read more

Roots of Creation Premiere Exciting Video For ‘Struggle’ Remixed By Sublime’s Ras MG

first_imgIt’s been an exciting 2016 for Roots of Creation, powered by the band’s triple album Livin’ Free that debuted at the #1 spot on the Billboard Reggae charts. The album itself featured tons of new material, with additional remixes and reworkings for nonstop enjoyment. The six-piece reggae rockers continue to tear it up on the road as well, and the new music takes on a whole new life in the live setting.Today, we’re excited to premiere the very first music video to accompany the album release. With award-winning director Jeff Pliskin following the band on tour, RoC rocks hard and welcomes special cameos by members of Slightly Stoopid, SOJA, Reel Big Fish, and Tunnel Vision. The song of choice is a great tune called “Struggle,” and this particular version is also the remix created by Sublime’s own Ras MG, who only adds to the energy of the track.Singer/guitarist Brett Wilson goes in depth about the new release: “We are beyond ecstatic to team up with L4LM to premiere Roots of Creation’s first official music video off our new triple album Livin’ Free! Shooting ‘Struggle (Ras MG remix)’ with Jeff ‘Jeffro’ Pliskin (Raised Fist Propaganda) all over the East Coast was an unforgettable experience. The video is a glimpse into the balancing act of having a family and being an independent touring musician. This is real life. No actors. Every time I watch the video it makes me tear up. It’s a reminder of how lucky we are to do what we love as a job, have so much support, and know so many amazing people. It’s also a reminder of how far we have come and how far we still need to travel. All the peaks. All the valleys. The highs and lows of the human experience are amplified on the road. Jeffro captured the emotion of the song and brought it to life visually. The struggle is real. Our fists are raised. RoC has taken Root and is ready to grow!”Watch the new video for “Struggle,” streaming below.For more on the album, you can check out our review here. Roots of Creation will tour all through the month of September, with dates all over the country! Check out the band’s tour schedule here.[Photo by Josh Coffman]last_img read more

Following an anonymous donation, 125-year-old Grotto receives summer revamp

first_imgPhoto courtesy of Barbara Johnston/University of Notre Dame The newly renovated Grotto now includes a more accessible staircase, natural stone pavers, and a designated entrance and exit.The most recent renovations included a wider staircase for improved accessibility to the site, as well as new benches and new natural stone pavers in place of the previous pavement, according to the University’s construction webpage.Christopher Chew, the construction administrator who oversaw the quality assurance, quality control and safety of the project, said the candles previously housed in boxes in the sacristy will now be kept in a new shed built close to the Grotto.While removing the old asphalt in preparation for the placement of natural stone pavers, however, the team discovered a plaque dating back to 1907 buried about a foot underground. Chew said the plaque fits into a diamond-shaped space on the left side of the Grotto, if one is facing towards the Basilica.  Years ago, someone noticed the same diamond shape in the wall, Chew said. “There was a lady who used to [run] a Grotto website, who had noticed it was missing and tried to figure out where it had fallen and disappeared,” Chew said. “She thought it was [from] the 1920s.”He said the plaque most likely fell off the Grotto wall during the 1920s, and was buried at some point in the last hundred years or so. Chew said he isn’t sure what will happen to the plaque at this time, as it is currently in someone else’s hands. In addition to the new natural pavers and widened space between the benches and the Grotto itself, there is now a designated entrance and exit to the site. “We pulled back the kneeling benches,” Chew said. “When you used to go into the grotto, you had to go out the same way. You no longer have to do that.”Marsh and Chew said there were also updates made to the landscaping around the site to enhance the experience of visitors to the Grotto. The surrounding sod is all new, and five trees and different ground shrubs and flowers were added to the site, along with river stones and rocks along the hill, Chew said. “There’s a much more pleasant look to [the Grotto],” Chew said. Both Marsh and Chew said the renovation project is meant to improve the experience of visiting the Grotto for everyone. “I think for visitors who have never been there, it will be a much more pleasant experience and for those who have been there and come back, it will be an even more pleasant experience to have,” Chew said. “I think it’s a much calmer feeling when you go [into the Grotto] versus when we had the asphalt.”Tags: Grotto, Plaque, renovations The Grotto, which is frequented by students, faculty and visitors of the University every day, underwent major renovations over the summer months. The University received a gift from an anonymous benefactor to replace the asphalt pavement and widen the east stairs, Doug Marsh, the principal overseer of the project, said in an email.Marsh said the Grotto has undergone other renovation projects prior to the most recent one this past summer.“The University has carefully cared for the Grotto for its approximately 125 years of existence as one of the most sacred places on our beloved campus,” Marsh said. last_img read more

Mel Brooks to Star in Autobiographical Solo Show

first_img Brooks has two hit musicals to his name—The Producers and Young Frankenstein, both stage adaptations of his classic films. He won three Tony Awards in 2001 for the former. Though few details have been released regarding the performance, audiences can expect anecdotes from Brooks’ life and career in TV, movies and musicals. “What Mel wanted to do,” said producer Kevin Salter, “was to have a platform to tell some of these great stories that he has in an intimate fashion.” Regarding the show’s late announcement (the performance being just days away,) Salter explained to the Los Angeles Times, “Mel works in that live TV way where everything happens quickly.” We’ve seen his work on stage and on screen, but now legendary funnyman Mel Brooks himself will take to the spotlight for one-night-only! The Los Angeles Times reports that the EGOT-er will appear in a one-man autobiographical show at the Geffen Playhouse in L.A.
