AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Dutch tax authorities have allowed a woman to deduct the 2,210 euros it cost her to take a one-year course in witchcraft, an inland revenue official said Wednesday.
The 39-year actress and artist learned how to use crystal balls and prepare herbs, and also spells and other witchcraft skills at the course held in the country's northwest.
"The woman used the training in order to start ... giving workshops, so she used it to extend her professional knowledge," the tax official told Reuters.
Margarita Roland, who gave the course and whose Web site ( http://www.heksehoeve.nl/ ) shows her with a broomstick and pointed hat, said she teaches apprentices all they need to know to become a witch, using magic as a force for good.
"A witch is a wise woman or man who knows about the magic of life in general and the magic of the earth in particular," said Roland, known as the "witch of Appelscha" after her home town.

You see, I love to take HOT, HOT, HOT, baths. In the summer,even with the air conditioner cranked up....It just isn't possible. The tub has to be cool, the water hot as hell, and when you get out of the tub, the air has to be cool.
Today for the first time in Months, and months the temperature stayed below 70, there was a chill breeze blowing, and it was absolutely wonderful!!
I filled up the tub with the hottest water I could, dumped in a whole box of salt, and a little lavender oil, and soaked for at least an hour.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I'm all sweet smelling, relaxed, and the salt has cleaned my aura wonderfully!!!!
I miss this sooooo much during the summer. I love to have a cold, cold day, and a hot, hot soak. Giggle

OK, so life is getting really spooky lately.
My son Matt decided to go back to school......5 yrs. After he dropped out of high school. Not only that, but he's enrolled in collage (did you know you didn't need a High School diploma if you enroll in collage after a certain age????)
I didn't know that...But you don't. Fancy that. So, He enrolled in collage, and it gets spookier..... And he got FULL financial Aid. Not loans, but all FREE, he NEVER has to pay it back!!!!!! He even wound up with about $800 extra, that they give him in cash for lunches, gas, and such. And that's just for this semester. It happens every semester!!!!!!
Ok, I'm still in shock about the school thing. Matt is close to being a genius, but he hated High School, and just said "Fuck it" and dropped out.
On top of that, he going for a major in Physics!!!!!!!
Now I have to drive him back and forth to school every day, including Saturday, since he doesn't drive. My luck the gas prices went up the wazzo, but hay, you got to expect something like that when it happens to me.
So he sat down and BUDGETED!!!! For those of you who have no clue, this is a boy who would spend all his money in about 20 seconds!! Even the few times he worked, his pay never lasted till the end of the week.
He budgeted money for my gas, his lunches, ect. I'm stunned
Now he goes to school Monday thru Saturday. On Sunday his only day off all week, HE WENT TO WORK!! Not only that, but since he gets paid after each job (and for those of you who know Matt..... No, he's not currently working as a hit man..... He's cleaning windows!)
He comes home from work, makes me take him to the Grocery store, and using a CALCULATER, he went shopping for food. And on top of that he actually bought food I can eat!!!! He picked the stuff out, and paid for it.
I hate to think this, but somebody should come and kick me or something, because I think its all a dream!!!!!

I probaly spelled the name of the new TV show wrong, but that's ok, since it seems the WHOLE PROGRAM WAS WRONG......VERY WRONG.
Ok, here's the thing, you got a Navy vessel that is not reponding to communication, right by a probable landing of an alien aircraft.......... Got that?.......Ok, fly by shows people DEAD on the deck of the ship...........Got that?................So they send in a special team to investigate, and they board the ship IN STREET CLOTHING!!!!!!!! No Isolation suits!!!!!!! Some of them didn't even wear rubber gloves when examining the body's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then they find more body's, some of them distorted beyond the ability of a human body, and they bag them in regular body bags, take them off the ship to a research facility.
OK, body bags don't contain contamination, that would have been a no no. The people carrying the bags were not in isolation gear, and after they took the body's back to the lab.................... THEN THINGS GOT MORE FUCKED UP!!! Who the fuck does an autopsy of a body in STREET CLOTHING!!!!! JUST WITH RUBBER GLOVES ON!!!!!!! And then allows someone to WALK IN during the autopsy and just STAND THERE TALKING!!!
And to beat it all, afterwards, in the evening, the whole team GOES HOME TO THEIR OWN HOMES!!!!!!!!!
YEH RIGHT!!!! I'm going to autopsy a body that may have died from some kind of alien contact, WITHOUT ISOLATION GEAR, and then go home that evening, stopping at a WAWA on the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There has to be a limit to what even an ordinary person could believe, and as for me, a person who has been in situations like that while working for the military.....Well, it's just FUCKING WRONG!
Even Joe Blow who a normal man in every sense knows better. What is this! Is this how they are trying to portray a new gentler Army. A Army of idiots who do not have a clue what contamination control is????
I'm going to watch the show just to see the blatant mistakes they are making. But, people let me tell you............
1. They wouldn't have boarded the navel vessel with out connamination procedures
2. If the helicopter flew to close to the vessel, they would not have been allowed to return to base.
3. During a lock down due to contamination........You don't fucking go home in the evening!!!
4. You don't do an autopsy of a suspected alian infection in STREET CLOTHING!
5. If memebers of your team seem to have been infected or exposed....they don't go home in the evening, they would be lucky if they weren't placed in a dozen bottles on a shelf!!!!
On the up side, Data, doing a show again....great
A midget being part of the team.....political correctness at it's best
A women heading the team.....totaly right
There was nothing else in the show that was right!!!!!!!!! What is this the 50's?????????

Well fall is finely coming. Yummmy. I have to admit it's my favorite time of the year. Crisp cold mornings and nights, and semi-warm days. Leaves changing colors............. You can just feel the magic in the air!!! Hot cider, warm flannel, smell of burning leaves, pumpkins, scarecrow, hot apple pie. I can go to New Hope and walk around the stores in complete comfort. Spend the day at Englishtown, with a wad of cash in my pocket, buying Christmas presents.....Sigh.....LOVE THE FALL!!!
And of course, it's the best time for spell casting. Ever!!!!! While doing spells, atmosphere does count!
Put on soothing music, dress in your robe and attire. Carry you knife and incense and bell. Giving you the feeling of power, and you can create power.
That's why I leave fall for my most important spells. Health, wealth, love. As we all know, spells are tricky. You cast them and ........ Nothing. Seems to be that when you finely forget that you casted a spell, that's when it happens. LOL Everyone seems to think there is this time limit on them. And yes, sometimes you can see the results shortly afterward, but most of the time it takes a while to go to force. LOL in the meantime, you forget you cast it, and then all of a sudden it hits. I think it's just the Goddess's little joke. She's telling you.....Patience, and faith.
Have Patience that what you ask for she will answer
Have Faith that the Goddess will provide
when you learn that, you cast your spells, and wait. As is proper.
But I've gotten off the track. LOL Humans are attuned to their sense of smell, sight, touch, taste, hearing. You have to create an atmosphere where you feel powerful and strong.
If it's darkness, blood, and creapycrawler...That's good
If it's pastels and flower and sweets....That's good
If it's skulls with candles, harmonic chants in the background, grave yard dirt....That's good too.
Fall always makes me feel strong, like I could fly in the wind with the falling leaves....So I'm going to make my alter room more in the fall way. How you ask, fall leaves, music that makes you feel like fall, a sound machine to give you the sound of the howling wind, pumpkins, and more...... So that when I go into my room, no matter what the time of year, It's transformed into Fall. So that I can go in there and feel the sound of the wind, and the leaves blowing round and round. This will give me streanth to perform the most powerful spells I can do.
Sort of like a stage setting in a play. Find your setting, find the time of the year that you feel that the smell of the air can make you fly!!!!!!! And do your room like that. FEEL THE MAGIC FLOW!!

1. If you've got melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.
2. Clearly, chocolate is a vegetable. Chocolate is derived from cacao beans. A bean is a vegetable. Wait! There's more! Sugar is derived from either sugar cane or sugar beets. Both are plants, which places them in the vegetable category. QED: chocolate is a vegetable.
3. Chocolate-covered raisins, -cherries, -orange slices and -strawberries all count as fruit. Eat as many as you want. Fruits are an important part of the Food Pyramid.
4. Hot tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It'll take the edge off Your appetite and you'll eat less.
5. If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top of the fridge. Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of the chocolate to protect themselves.
6. Money talks. Chocolate sings.
7. Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger. Therefore, chocolate is therapeutic.
8. Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done.
9. A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Isn't that handy?
10. If you can't eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate, what's wrong with you?

You know I'm getting some brain dead jerk off who's reading my posts and posting comments in spam form. You probably haven't seen them, since I delete them really quick!
Like......."Wow you sound like you like star wars go to..... And some stupid web link. What a MORON.
Well, I wrote the bog central and reported it. I talked to them and they say they have the hardware to track the idiots, so I sent them the links, and then deleted them. Like I'm actually going to leave that on my blog!!!!! Get Real!!!
So if anyone see's something like that on my blog comments....DON'T CLICK ON IT!
As soon as I see it, I delete it, first reporting it. Hope they catch that idiot.
Why are there so many idiots in this world. Like the asshole who's spamming my blog. Would love to get his e-mail or phone # and leave 20,000 messages all over it. LOL Maybe the blog people will give it to me, and I can get some satisfaction. LOL
Well there's nothing anyone can do to keep people with mental problems off the net, it's a shame.

Well, I went to Mom's for the last time on Friday. We went thru the basement. I found some pretty nice thing, pots and pans ect. But, I kept walking around, remembering how it used to be. Ernie didn't keep the house up, he didn't have the skills for that, but the house still remained the same. Mom never changed anything. She had the same living room furniture for 50 yrs. The same dining room furniture and the same kitchen things. She was afraid of change I guess. I don't know what her problem was, maybe that's why I like change so much?
I like to change things constantly, from furniture, to decorations, to house's. Maybe I saw that fear in her and decided that that wasn't going to be me. Maybe, who knows.
But I knew it was the last time I would be in that house. The house where I was born, and lived for 25 yrs. It wasn't a good feeling. Eileen started to cry, but I made her stop, I couldn't hack it, and she would have just set me off. I waited till they all left the house, and I walked around it one more time.
And though I know it was silly, I pretended I was 6 yrs old again, going outside to play.......I called out "See you later Mom" and went out the door and closed it behind me. I could see myself running out to the back yard.......... I could see the past and even though I know It's long gone, I guess I mourned the loss of that childhood more then the loss of both my parents.
I long ago made my peace with my dad dying, so it didn't seem as hard when my mom went. I remember looking in the coffin and saying "that's not her". And I do believe it wasn't her. That tiny thin thing in the coffin wasn't my mom. Mom never sat still, she paced or stood, laying down wasn't like her at all. Maybe it makes it easier to bear that she's gone, if I don't admit she was laying there....But it really wasn't her. Not the mom I knew. In my mind she's still there, and I do love her....Even if showing love was almost impossible for her, I did love her.
Now they are all gone. My grandparents, my mom and dad, my husband. All gone. And I'm alone. There's no one left who really knew me as a child, no one that can remember for me, and think about me. It's a shame. My sister and my Aunt Harriet, cousin mike, and Eddie are all that are left of our family. Those people didn't really know me. Especially my sister, she never took the time to get to know me at all....But that's ok. I remember who I am
Some nights in the dark, I go back and remember, and the memory's were good ones. When I go, there won't be anyone there to say..... Oh my, but she was a pretty, cheerful child. A child who love nature, climing trees, barbie dolls, Cats. No one to remember me as a child, carefree and wondering. I wonder where the wonder went? It died as I grew, and it's been gone for what seems like forever.
That's the secret. Acting like a child doesn't make you a child, and it doesn't bring back good or bad memory's. Acting like an adult is the hardent, most hurtful thing a person can do....But you have to do it. To live, survive, and maybe every once in a while to be happy again.

Tell me, It's 8:30 AM on a Friday MORNING. And I've seen 4 commercials for "RUM" on TV!!!!!!!! Cute ones too, I have to admit. But, why are they on in the AM. Oh I'm sure they are for the adults. FUCK YOU!!!!
Kills me to know that the President is so fucking corrupt that he can be bought off by the Alcohole consortium. And you know he is!!!! No, instead of fighting this, he's after SMOKERS!!!
Tell me MR. (asshole for brains) PRESIDENT..... When was the last time someone smoked a cig, and went home and beat the shit out of his wife and kids????
When was the last time someone had a cig, and went and got in his car and KILLED people??????
When was the last time smoking lead to heroin addiction??????
How many people who drink alcohole become addicted??????????? HOW FUCKING MANY!!!!
INSTEAD OF TAKING CARE OF THAT PROBLEM, YOUR FUCKING FORCING ME TO GO OUTSIDE TO SMOKE!!!! BUT THE BARS FILL UP WITH DRUNKS, AND NO ONE DOES ANYTHING ABOUT IT!!!!!!
Yep, no cig. Advertising on TV or in Books or Mags. or on road sides!!!!! But having a Baccardi Rum commercial at 8:30AM ON A FUCKING FRIDAY MORNING...... That's total cool with you.
What's the matter Mr. (taking bribes is good) President????? Didn't the tobacco industry offer you enough money to fuck off....... Like the alcohol industry did????
I've always been on the side of the govement. But taking away my freedom to smoke, ok cool, if you also do the same for the drinking!!!!!!
NO, you put a little sign at the end of a alcohole commercial saying "DRINK REPONSABLY" I'm sure the 6 year olds watching that along with their moring cartoons totally get the concept!!!!!
