Binding someone to you by spelling them is not a really good thing, matter of fact it can have disastrous results, and blackens your Karma for years, and years.

What most people don't know, is that REAL binding calls for body fluids. Like blood or other stuff collected from the one you want, and some of your body fluids also.

So, if you want a light binding spell, something to get him or her to notice you and come to you..... without lasting effects or repercussions. Here's a good one:

4 Cinnamon sticks (real ones)
Purple thread
and some black cloth

Tie the Cinnamon sticks together with the purple thread, thinking of the person you want, saying;

"One to seek, one to find,
One to bring , one to bind,
Heart to heart, me to thee:
So say I, so mote it be!

Wrap it in black cloth, and put it somewhere it won't be found or disturbed. And your done! This will bind his thoughts to you, but not bind his heart, unless love grows. But it gives you a chance to make that love grow, and that's what counts!


The birds are doing the particular kind of chirping in the morning. You know what I mean..... spring chirping.

The, I need a mate, I'm gonna build a nest, kind of chirping! Haven't heard that all winter, and believe me, at 5 am in the morning..... I DON'T MISS IT!!!!

It's kind of cool though, means spring is here. Even with the colder weather, and the rain and sleet and snow, the birds know it's time for spring. And they announce it LOUDLY EACH AND EVERY FUCKING MORNING!!! GIGGLE

Makes me restless, I wanna go out and work in the garden, I want sun shine, and the beach. GODDESS I MISS THE BEACH!!!!!!!! I can't wait till the sand and sun is warm and the waters Ice cold!!!!!

I'm going to spend much more time outside this summer. If Matt doesn't take summer courses, I'll be at the beach at least 2 times a week..... if possible. I need the sun! My solar batteries need recharging!!!!!!

Charms that help

Chant this 3 times over

Open mind, and gain new life,

Gone from you, all stress and strife.

Open heart, gain life anew,

Accept all love that's offered you.

Positive thought and word and deed

Enter now, of bane I'm freed.

Anchients, hear me, grant my plea
To new relationships, open me.


Keeper of what disappears,Hear me now, open your ears.

Find for me what I now seek

By Moon, Sun, Wind, Fire, Earth, and Sea.


Venus, Queen of Love, divine

Bring the love to me that's mine.

Perfect, she/he, and perfect, me,

Together we are meant to be.

Venus, Queen of Love, so warm

Bring my love to me without harm.

Let nothing keep us now apart,

Bring perfect love to fill my heart


Place a small bowl or cup in a place you can get to it. Every day add three coins of any denomination, and say

"Trinka five, trinka five

Ancient spirtis come alive.

Money grow and money thrive,

Spitits of the Trinka five.

continue each day to you recieve the money you need

It started yesterday, late afternoon..... now it's bloomed into a full case of Agata!!! It started out with me feeling that I had to get out! Go outside, walk, walk, walk. In my mind, I was walking across a long area.... maybe even states! Walking under the night sky. I could actually see it in my mind, walking across a field at night, just walking.... AWAY!

It slowly bloomed into a dread anticipation! Like, somethings coming, and I've got to get out!! Not anxiety, not that, but the need to move and travel... away!

Usually this is before a big storm, or something else.

Now my legs are phantom tingling, and my mind is racing, and I want to do something... ANYTHING!!!

I hate this, I guess you would call it like a 6th sense. It's unsettling.... and to top it off, it may not even concern me!!! Yep, it could be somewhere else in the state, world, or beyond.

Why does it upset me? I guess because I'm open to it. I spend a lot of time just being open to all round me, feelings, things happening, omens. And this is a bad one, though I don't know where or when, but it coming!!!

So I'm going to spend some time closing myself off to it. Trying to get it away. No, I'm not going to try to pinpoint it, I hate that, and it's totally scary.... so just getting it to go away it the best I can do. Besides, what the fuck could I do about it???? Not a damn thing. It could be as far away as China...... yeah, right I'm going to warn people about something happening thousands of miles away. I'm not a fool.

Besides, it could just be weather related. A big storm coming, or just lots of rain or snow.... so warning people isn't an option.

gotta cope!

somethings should be repeated

If your anything like me, you love to buy the small bottles of concentrated oils that you find in the store. Some of them smell sooooooooo yummy. But, they are concentrated and just dabbing them on your skin or clothing is not the best of ideas. I can cause you to get a terrible rash, or stain your stuff, so be careful.

If you want to use them, and still not sick out your friends or spot up that cute blouse, here's how to do it.What you need:

small saucepan
petroleum Jelly
concentrated oils
Go to a local craft store, and buy some plastic bottles, the little ones with screw on lids. Not shaped like perfume bottles but more like coldcream jars.

Get yourself a nice small sauce pan that you can use for this purpose AND NOTHING ELSE!!! Don't ever use the pan for any other type of cooking, this can be very dangerous. Now, go to a dollar store, or your local drug store and buy a nice big jar of petroleum Jelly.

line up your jars, and in the sauce pan, and a few big dollops of the Jelly. Heat the jelly on the store at a very, very, very low temperature.... till the petroleum Jelly turns to liquid. Then add a few drops of the oil to the melted Jelly, stir, and pour into containers.

As it cools, it will turn back into solid petroleum Jelly, but this time your sent will be mixed in with it. Let it cool, put the top back on, and there you go.

You have a nice solid perfume that you made yourself, and with the nice oils you get at the store. Remember it's still an oil, and can still stain your clothing, so try to use it where the clothing doesn't touch.

Also for the bath, buy some packages of "Sea Salt" Pour the salt into containers that you can seal.( just two drops) of your oils, shake it around with the salt, and close it. Let it sit for a while to absorb the smell, and then you can add some to your bath water any time you want

Just remember, the oils are concentrated........... A tiny bit goes a long way!!!

patio swing

Well, GIGGLE, I got a patio swing. I know, I said I didn't have the money right now, and I was going to wait till the beginning of the month...... but it didn't cost me a penny!

I went down to look at swings at a major home store, I found one I liked. It's nice, bland (usually beige color.... they don't have anything else!!!) But it's a 3 person swing, nice and hefty, and nice cushions. And it has the added bonus of folding down into a bed! Pretty cool.

While looking, an old friend of mine came up, they were working there! We used to work together at another store, so we chatted and caught up. I was telling them that I wanted this swing, but not till next month, and she checked and found the store only had 2 of them in stock, and that was all they were getting!!!!! Don't you HATE stores that do that!!!!! Why show a item that you only have 2 of!!!!! I think it's just a fucking tease!!!

Well, before I knew what was happening..... and believe me, I didn't ask for it. They put the swing on a flat, and rolled it out the store to my car!!!!!!! Stealing? Yes. But I didn't do it!!!!! I didn't ask, I didn't even know they were going to do it!!!! Did I argue? HELL NO!!!

I may not be a thieve, but I don't argue with someone who is..... especially when it's a free bee for me!!!! I of course will punish my self for being greedy. GIGGLE But in the mean time I got a great swing, and didn't pay a cent. Cool with me!!!!!!

I don't have the time or the warm weather to put it togeather yet, so It'll stay in the back of my car till I do. When I get a nice warm day, and Matt to help me, I'll put it togeather, and post a nice picture of it for you all.

Scam's, scam's, and more scams!

I am getting so tired of this shit! All the scams that are on line and in the mail are fucking nasty!!!

I'm tired of getting e-mail from my bank (who doesn't have my e-mail address!) saying that my account has seen some suspicious activity and it's frozen, click on this link to correct it! Are they fucking nuts!!!! Don't people know to call, and check on such stuff in person!!!!! NEVER CLICK ON A LINK IN AN E-MAIL!!!

And like ten times a day, e-mails from e-bay saying there is problems with my account, or that I bought something for 10,000 dollars and they are just checking to confirm the sale!!!

Hay, if e-bay was REALLY writing me, the letter would be in the messages section of my account!!!! Not in a frigging e-mail!!!! I never fall for the shit, I don't even bother looking, I just click it into the garbage. Oh, and another is that you need to update your charge card on E-bay..... well wouldn't you just click to your account, and go to pay pal and fix it, NO IDIOTS CLICK ON THE E-MAIL LINK AND FUCK UP THEIR CREDIT!!!

And how many times am I going to get a letter from a bank in AFRICA, asking for my help???? GET A LIFE BOZO'S!!!!!

But some people keep falling for the shit. Like Barb's next door neighbor got a letter saying her morgage company had sold her morgage to them. ect, ect.....

so she just starts sending them the payments!!!

Why didn't she call her first morgage company to check??? And why did she ignore the letters from her original company????? Why wouldn't you open the letters?????

Nope, 5 months down the line, she's lost her house, because her morgage company DID NOT sell her morgage to another company..... and because she didn't check........... the original company, not getting any payments..... foreclosed on her ass!!!!

The only good thing is that she actually got the FBI involved. She won't get back her house, but she may get back some money, and maybe the bastards will be closed down!!!!

So, heed my warning. Don't click on any links..... don't do anything unless you check BY PHONE, WITH THE CORRECT LISTED # IN THE PHONE BOOK!!! Don't be a victim, be a winner!!

Again, I've never fallen for this shit, I laugh at them, but too many people fall for that crap each day, and I think it's a SHAME!!!! Not on the person who doing the con, but on the idiot that falls for it!!! Smarten up people!

Fresh Air!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's sooooooo nice to be able to open the windows again!!!!!! Airing out my house yesterday, and today is fantastic.
You don't know how much you miss fresh air till you stuck in the house, windows closed, because of the cold!!!
I'm trying really hard to stop myself from running out and getting the patio swing I'm drooling over! Actually it's not that hard, since it's the middle of the month and I'm broke. GIGGLE
But, I so want to sit outside and swing!!!! Just a few more weeks and I'll run out and get one!!!!!
This weekend I've got plans with friends, and it should be fun. I'm hoping the weather holds and it's nice a warm!! It's kinda hard to do anything, when I have to drive Matt back and forth to school all week, really breaks up my schedule, but then he's doing so fantastic, I can't feel bad about all the time I'm spending doing it.
My birthdays coming up soon, YUCKY! I'm trying NOT TO THINK ABOUT IT, but it keeps creeping into my mind at odd moments. GIGGLE

I had to show you this picture! So far this winter we haven't had it bad, some snow (no more then 1/2 inch) rain, and some light ice..... but the bane of the last 3 weeks has been the WIND!!!!!

These rockers are solid CAST IRON!!!! For four (4) years now , THEY HAVE FACED THE WINDOW,they have been outside during all kinds of weather.... and haven't moved an inch!!!!

But the last 3 weeks of wind, and wind and MORE WIND, and you can see they are facing away from the window!!!!! Four years and they never moved!!!! So you can see just how bad the wind has been down here at the shore!!!

IT'S GOT TO STOP............. SOON!!!!!!!

Spring is springing

Well, I've already started my artichoke plants for this summer. I have no idea HOW I know when to start the seedlings........ it just seems to click automatically in my brain, and I follow thru. I have the seeds planted, in peat pots, and set in the sunny window sill. Now all I have to do is keep them wet, apply fertilizer, and re pot in bigger pots as they grow. This way, by the time it's safe to plant out doors, the plants will be nice and big. More artichokes!!!! Yehhhhhhhhhh!!!!

I also ordered Horseradish roots. I know you wondering why, but growing up Russian, horseradish plays a big part in our diet..... besides being healthy, and a great way to clear your sinus's!

Also Asparagus roots are coming.

Both of these will be planted in additional half wine barrels. Nice and big, and will keep growing in the containers for years!

In addition, I ordered a honeysuckle vine, and a Clementius vine for the front trellis. I'll plant one of either side, and may the faster grower win!

I also ordered a couple of beach plums. Now beach plums are plum tree's that are natural growers in the beach area. They don't get big, only about 6 foot high, and during the summer they are loaded with small, sweet, plums. Yummmm. I'll plant them on the side of the trailer, by the shed.... where they will get plenty of sunlight!

That will be my total planting in the yard. In the pots, I will plant tomatoes, snap peas, and of course that wonderful Japanese egg plant I had last year. And my blueberry's did fine all winter, and next year I should have tons of them!!

I do have to get some flowers. For the pedestal planters in the front of the stairs, and I bought a HUGE plastic (but looks like terra cotta) pot that is actually in TWO pieces. With a center void. This way you place the pot around a lamp post. I have a lamp post in my front yard, so the planter will surround the pot, and in it I'll place some nice summer flowers. Geraniums are my fave, but I'm going to add some Daisy's in with them to spice up the color.

Should look nice!!!

Besides all that, the only yard furniture I'm getting is an outside swing. They are covered, and some of them even unfold to make an outdoor bed!!!! I'm not sure yet what kind I'll get, I'm waiting for the stores to get more variety's out so that I can pick something nice.

Good convention, wrong time of the year!!!! We checked in on Friday and the hotel is super nice,,,,,,, but as usual they were doing renovations!!!!! The most important one was that the hotel BAR WAS CLOSED!!!! They set up a tiny bar in the middle of the lobby, but warm and inviting, open to conversation..... it wasn't! Big disappointment!

But getting past that, the room and hotel were nice. But once again...... no indoor pool. Outside covered with ice and snow was the biggest..... I mean BIGGEST pool I have ever seen!!!!! It was fantastic!!!! But, again..... outside, not in. So no pool, and no bar.

The convention set up for autographs was FANTASTIC!!!! The stars, and there were like 30, were set up around the walls of the rooms, and you just waked up to who you wanted to see, and got in line. Unlike SHORE LEAVE, that makes you wait till they call your frigging number!!!!!! You just waked in, stood in line with the one you wanted to see, and boom you were done!!!! AGAIN FANTASTIC~!!!! And the dealers room wasn't shabby either. Tons of cool stuff, toys, games, jewelry, art work, clothing..... lots of good stuff

But did we stay, yes over night, but left Saturday instead of Sunday, because without the pool and bar, there wasn't much to do. But for a day trip, best that I've seen so far! The men, almost to the man, were handsome and totally trippy and goth. Yes, some geeks there, but like 5 % compared to 98% at shore leave. Lots of the girls dressed in goth too, cute short plaid skirts and thigh high stocking..... yummy!

good news, and bad news

The good news, in my opinion, is that daylight savings starts 4 weeks early this year!!!! Meaning longer days of light, always a good thing. The bad thing is that your computers aren't ready for it.

Now you can get a patch thru Microsoft..... always chancey since it tends to download major virus's while downloading updates..... that's the reason I undid my up dates on the computer. Besides the fact it's fucking annoying to get thoes update messages every fucking 5 seconds!!!!!!

You can always also click on your time stamp, and change the time!!! This is great if you don't shut your computer off all the time, like I keep mine on...... but every time you shut the computer off you will have to change the time again............ at least for 4 weeks, till the old daylight savings time starts.

Hummmm, virus's from Microsoft, or having to change the time manually....... I'd rather just keep changing the time every time I shut the computer off.............. or at least tell myself, "TIMES WRONG, ADD AN HOUR" How easy is that. LOL

Just remember to change your time..... "Spring ahead one hour" On the new date of MARCH 11TH!!!!!!!!

What the color of a rose means

Red -- The red rose tells your valentine without a doubt, "I love you." A vibrant and dramatic color, it stands for romance and passion. It's the perfect choice for your true love, the love of a lifetime or someone you want to get the message it's time to "get serious."

White -- Tells your angel of a valentine that they're simply "heavenly," and is a great color for the romantic in your life! White roses also stand for innocence, which makes it a perfect color choice for dads to give daughters.

Red & White Together -- By themselves these red and white roses are gorgeous, but together, they symbolize unity. What a great surprise for the newlywed valentine, loving partner or to send to your parents to say "Thanks for being such a great symbol of love through the years!"

Pink -- Send deep pink roses and you're telling that someone special you appreciate their sense of grace, style and their gentle nature. Send them light pink roses and you're saying "I really admire you!" This rose color is just the right pick to send to someone you want to become your special valentine and sign the card, "Love, your secret admirer."

Yellow -- Could there be any other color but bright, sunny yellow to symbolize friendship, affection and joy? Send your best friend a bunch of these stunning blooms with a card that says, "You'll be my best friend forever!"

Coral or Orange -- You caught their eye, they caught your eye. There's smoke, now there's a chance for fire. Send orange roses, the color of desire, and wait for passion to ignite.

Deep Burgundy -- Beautiful doesn't even begin to compare to your valentine, but they're unaware of how stunning they truly are. Burgundy roses, which mean "unconscious beauty," are the right choice for this shy valentine.

Red & Yellow Blends -- Red and yellow roses together symbolize joy, happiness and excitement! Gather these gorgeous blooms into one dozen or buy a single stem of each color and put in individual bud vases for a statement of love that your valentine will never forget!

Lavender -- It's love at first sight with this unique rose color. The moment you saw your valentine, your heart skipped a beat. Send a gorgeous array of lavender roses and tell your valentine once again, "I fall in love all over again every time I see you."

Wish for the year!

Come to me Air,
so fresh and so clean,
Grant mental power - keep my thoughts sharp and keen.
Bring creativity - bring clarity, too
Lend your positive aspects to all that I do.

Come to me Water, so flowing and free,
Lend compassion and love and gentility.
grant understanding and tempers, please soothe -
And life's little problems, please help me to smooth.

Come to me Fire, so warm and so bright.
As I walk through this life, my pathway, Please light.
Please help me to live and to love with pure zest -
Standing up for the truth, when I'm put to the test.

Come to me Earth, so rich and so moist,
Bestow, please, your gifts of serene peace and joy
Grand me your stability and ethical ways,
So I may help others, the rest of my days.

Hertha, please come, and work with these four
and balance their aspects within me once more.

Transform my life,

for you hold the key

to changing me into that which I should be.

Elements of all that live and shall be,
Please spin your spell in pure harmony -
Weaving the threads of my life with ease,
And stitching it's fabric with Blessed Be's!!!

Well, today I got the Dealers packet for Shore Leave, and I filled it out, enclosed a check, and mailed it out!!!

So officially that makes me a Dealer at Shore Leave this July!!! I don't know if I should celebrate, or freak out. GIGGLE

One part of me is happy, I'm sure to make at least the price of the table back, because it was so low....... and the other part of me is whining because I won't be able to spend all my time at the bar and pool. GIGGLE

But, the alternative was not to go at all, and I still have so many friends that go there..... I would miss them. And this way, I'm making money instead of just spending it!

I'll settle down, and start enjoying my new found status, in a few weeks, maybe. Eileen will be selling her jewelry at the table, and maybe Steph, and Jamie, thou those last two haven't made up their minds yet..... but either way, just with the stuff I have, I should make up the money for the table in a day...... and that's not bad. LOL

New Convention!

I'm going to a new type of convention, for me that is, next weekend. It's called Monster-Mania Con. All kinds of horror movie stars will be there! Kinda cool.

I've never gone to one before, so I'm excited about seeing what it's like. I want to see the dealers room there. That should be interesting.

I've been looking for something different since I've WAY outgrown star trek conventions. Besides, now that I'm going to be a dealer at star trek conventions, I won't have the time to enjoy them, so something new sounds good to me

The amount of movie stars is amazing. They have over 30 guests, some of them pretty big in the horror movie area. Plus some guys from the hit TV show, ghost hunters, will be there too.

But the best thing is that it's only in Cherry Hill, and the ride is really short!!!! Compared to the 3 or 4 hours up to MD for Shore Leave. I'm hoping it goes well, and I make some new friends.

I've been told by others, unlike star trek cons, no geeks and freaks....... and the men are supposed to be very cute! (Not that I'm looking....... well, I'll look, just not interested in touching!)

I just finished doing my taxes. The last couple of years I've gone with other people to do my taxes..... and you know what I found out???? IT COSTS A FUCKING FORTUNE!!!!

Why am I giving up my hard earned, and much needed money to someone else to do my taxes???

Well, if you remember, during the summer I had to resubmit 2 years of taxes because of a goof up, and because it wasn't during the tax year...... I had to do it myself........ and you know what? IT WAS NICE GETTING TO KEEP ALL THAT MONEY!!! And not having to split it with some idiot and a computer.

I can understand if your taxes are complicated, having someone do it is the right thing.... but all I have is my annuity to claim...... so why get a refund minus about $250 dollars are more!!!

So, having the experience now, I sat down and did the sucker myself! It'll be a joy to get all the money, even if I have to wait for it to come in the mail..... what's a little wait? I don't mind at all.

But, I still get the racing heart and sweaty palms doing it. GIGGLE And I usually wind up with a bad headache, but I don't mind..... it's done, mailed, and a check will follow...... and I have plans for that money, so it's all cool.

Get the right flowers this year!!!!

Every sign of the zodiac rules its own set of characteristics -- colors, gemstones, parts of the body ... so why not plants and flowers as well?

Here's a picture of my old china cabinet, that I just got back again, from Barb. Now you see what all the fuss was. It is huge, and heavy, but both barb and I got a lot of use out of it!
I forgot how huge it was! but it holds all my goodies, and with space left over!!


Sunday, February 04, 2007


You know I keep looking in the kitchen, and smiling!

There was a few things when I first moved here that bothered me. The first one was that cabinet over the breakfast bar, the second was the carpet (stained in some area's) the third was the bathroom mirror (huge mirror, showed way to much!) and there was no forth, nothing else.

So I fixed all of them, new carpeting, some decals on the bathroom mirror, but I kept putting off the cabinet, because I wasn't sure how to take it off, and it was held up by two pieces of wood attached to the counter. I figured if I took of the cabinet, then I would have to replace the counter top also...... so I kept putting it off, and putting it off. I HATE THAT!

I'm the kind of person when something bothers me, I fix it! I have no problem with any kind of house hold repair. Like replacing lights, or plumbing.... I'm cool with all that. But that cabinet stumped me. I was afraid that something that wouldn't cost me anything to do, would wind up costing me a mint. LOL

Boy, was I wrong. Now I'm sorry I didn't have the balls to do it earlier!!!!!

So, out of all the mess the Barbara caused me by returning the dinning room set, this, was the reward. And, I have to say it again, but I LOVE IT!!!

That horrible cabinet is DOWN!!!!

I finally removed that horrible overhanging cabinet in my kitchen! WOW does it look good, now my kitchen is open to the dinning room. NICE!!!!!

Getting rid of your winter greens

This is a little late, but next year, when Yule is over, this is the way to get rid of your trees and wreaths with the proper spell. If you insist on having a real tree, you can feel better about sending it to the garbage. Use what you can of it for potpourri and such.

To Dismiss Winter’s Greens:
All trees or boughs that have been cut and kept for luck within the house must not be cast away or scorned, but gravely burned to dust at last;

chop them fine; give them flame; offer this rhyme:

“Forgive our fire, faithful tree Warm us now, who have warmed thee.”

large portion of the trunk from each year's Yule tree is always saved to become the following year's Yule log. It is then gaily decorated by the children with ribbons and dried flowers and burned with great ceremony upon the Solstice. The fragrant pine needles are also stripped and saved for potpourri and incense.

Fairly good spell

A Spell to Summon Fairies
Sit where the Cat Sits.

Cross your toes.

Close your eyes and smell a rose.

Then say under your breath:"I believe in fairies,sure as death."Gadflykins! Gladtrypins!Gutterpuss and Cass!Come to me fairilyEach lad and Lass!
