This is my December
This is my time of the year
This is my December
This is all so clear

This is my December
This is my snow covered home
This is my December
This is me alone

And I
Just wish that I didn’t feel
Like there was something I missed
And I
Take back all the things I said
To make you feel like that
And I
Just wish that I didn’t feel
Like there was something I missed
And I
Take back all the things that I said to you

And I’d give it all away
Just to have somewhere to go to
Give it all away
To have someone to come home to

This is my December
These are my snow covered dreams
This is me pretending
This is all I need

And I
Just wish that I didn’t feel
Like there was something I missed
And I
Take back all the things I said
To make you feel like that
And I
Just wish that I didn’t feel
Like there was something I missed
And I
Take back all the things that I said to you

And I’d give it all away
Just to have somewhere to go to
Give it all away
To have someone to come home to

This is my December
This is my time of the year
This is my December
This is all so clear

And I’d give it all away
Just to have somewhere to go to
Give it all away
To have someone to come home to

I guess I’ll keep on changing the layout as I am not satisfied with it. Always that something that ain’t right…..
So hang on! I might stop one day! ahahahahah

As a 21st century population, sometimes I think we are worst than animals. What shocks me the most is the vision of ¾ of the planet toward the animal that is supposed to be our best friend: The Dog.
Of course it’s the same for the horse who served the human etc…but I will concentrate on dogs.
The dog became the victim of worldwide commerce and human lust for money. The dog became a fur, meat and puppy producer. In certain countries such as Korea, they literally take the fur off puppies, alive. Videos are actually roaming on the web about those cases. It is said that Chinese eats dog flesh, mostly St-Bernard’s. But I have no confirmation.
As for the biggest commerce, puppy production, it is the worst plague known.
People, in greed of money, will make bitches over produce babies in the worst conditions. They will mate them with any dogs, sick or not. And those puppies are ¾ of Pet shops merchandise. People will complain about dogs sold by recognized breeders as they are much more expensive. But think of this; Breeders tests ALL individuals for sickness and congenital problems. They bring the puppies to the vet to have them checked and have their shots. Just a visit, no shots cost around 35$ to 65$! But you have a FULL guarantee, service, a dog you are sure won’t have congenital or psychological problems at 98%. Not 100 coz anyone one can get that lil pup that is so fragile.
Also by buying from your neighbor or Pet Shop, you encourage the person who doesn’t even care if the mother is on the edge of death.
There’s also the “epidemic” of dog bites. Mostly related, by the medias, to the Pitt bull. Another situation they don’t seek further than their nose, as it makes such sensational news. The Pitt bull, as well as the Staffordshire, Bull terrier etc, is among the nicest dog. Did you know, in a certain year, don’t remember when but I remember I have found the article as I was suppose to do searches for the SPCA I worked at to convince the city not to apply BSL, but the Golden Retriever is on top of list regarding bites.
Among all breeds on this planet, there is no breed more aggressive than another nor that barks more. The dog is a pack animal like the wolf, he is looking forward to be part of a pack and be ruled by a leader, the Alpha dog. When the human let a dog, bite at will, bark at will, over protects him, if you let do as will, he will suggest he is the Alpha among humans and bite. YOU have to show your dog how to behave, coz if you don’t, even a tiny Maltese could be dangerous.
Anyways, I can’t go up in details, I’ll have to make a book with many chapters: Behave your dog, feed your dog well, where to buy etc…
As I wish to have, one day, a Doberman, or a German shepherd or a Rottie, I will let you guys think about all this. Even though I have not a diploma in dog behavior or DMV, if you have questions, just ask.

Ever noticed how some people look like others? Like your neighbor looks like Danny DeVito or your co-worker like your own mother! The other day I saw a lady that looked like a poodle, but that’s another story.
Sadly, when we look like stars, the wallet doesn’t come with it. I once heard that I look like Shannen Doherty and I remind everyone someone, my Fiancé as been said he looks like CH’s Tom Kostopoulos and younger, Ferris Bueller’s day off’s Alan Ruck. From my point, definitely more Tom.
I had a friend who looked like Tom Cruise and my own father, younger, looked like Tom Selleck! Also, my English teacher, I swear, looked like Yoda! No kidding! Only, not green!
There’s also a “myth” that says that everyone as twin somewhere. Wish I could find mine, would be fun! Who’s your “twin”?

Twins?

As the economy goes down, my Fiancé and I are searching for our first home. We are looking forward to be pre-approved. Still, it isn’t, I guess the biggest problem. First, my salary is the worst I ever had, as I am at the edge or poverty. So we can’t, right now, afford a home over 150 grand. Also, we seem to not be on the same level as for what kind of home. One prefers condo in town and the other a house a lil outside town (since in it’s freakin’ expensive in the city). Still everything gets mixed up as I want my dog back and we want another dog. I am not sure if I want to be stuck in an apartment building again and take the dogs out every hour. As he don’t seem to want to do a lawn but want dogs and BBQ in the backyard. We don’t want to pay too much per month and all our lives as condos have monthly fees. I am getting a headache just typing this. We have to either try to find the middle or THE occasion. And we don’t even have a year for that.
They say that it’s time to buy houses since the price are dropping drastically… where?!?!?!? A simple house, with one bathroom, 3 bedrooms is listed around 190 to 200 grand! I we are talking about a small garden house! There would be so less homeless people at july 1st if they would think 2 seconds instead of trying to make more money.
Anyways, as the puzzle continues, we are navigating the net to find the perfect home for our situation. As one as caught our eye, even thought I’ll have to drag the dogs out on a leash, we both agree on this one. Hopefully, it will be as great as it looks on the pics.
So if anyone as a house for sell in Gatineau, like a donation, we might be takers!
Also, I am not sure we want to stay another year in the apartment we are renting, not only is it small and we have barely cabinets for the dishes, but also, we hear the neighbor snoring… I just try not to imagine what he hears… But I guess if we have too, we will.
I have to admit that my dream house is actually the typical Canadian house… but they are about the most expensive on the market… so guess it ain’t for me.
Overall, we just want OUR home, and after we’ll see.
Ah! If winning the lottery would be for us….

My dream Canadian House

What exactly is a Witch? We are use to see the classic image of the woman riding her broom, ugly and satanic. This image was projected long time ago as the Catholic Church, who was Pagan at first, decided to deny his Pagan roots.
Historically, people will guess it came from a famous event that occurred in 1692, in Salem, Massachusetts: The Witch trials and Witch Hunt.
For reasons, still blurry, the church had them on their black list. And even though the miracles and magic of their god was alright, the Pagan’s “magic” isn’t, it is from the devil.
Let’s start with getting this straight: Magic in the Pagan and Wiccan world aren’t magic like we see in TV. It is nothing more than prayers called incantations. Repeated often and well asked to certain gods, goddesses or guardians, improvement can be noticed. Also, the “Witch” will sometimes include herbs, candles and incense to improve spirituality, a lil like Buddhism.
Anyways, since this certain past, Pagans or Wiccans, certain know as Witch are seen a demoniacs worshipping the devil. Still not founded. The Pentagram, seen as a devil’s symbol, is just a symbol representing the elements (water, fire… etc…). But put upside down, like the Christian cross, would be representative of demoniac activities.
Yet, the television and movie industry nourished this misconception. Like some other subjects such as Pit bull attacks, nobody searches more, as sensationalism is a better seller than the truth. But that’s another subject ….
Anyways, Witches are simple people, like anyone, who just believes in the nature surrounding them, liberty without harm and respect of choices. But like in any religion, people can turn bad. Here is the Rede in which they believe:

1. Bide the Wiccan laws ye must in perfect love and perfect trust.
2. Live an let live – fairly take an fairly give.
3. Cast the Circle thrice about to keep all evil spirits out.
4. To bind the spell every time, let the spell be spake In rhyme.
5. Soft of eye and light of touch – speak little, listen much.
6. Deosil go by the waxing Moon – sing an dance the Wiccan rune.
7. Widdershins go when the Moon doth wane, and the Werewolf howls by the dread Wolfsbane.
8. When the Lady’s Moon is new, kiss the hand to her times two.
9. When the Moon rides at her peak, then your heart’s desire seek.
10. Heed the Northwind’s mighty gale – lock the door and drop the sail.
11. When the wind comes from the South, love will kiss thee on the mouth.
12. When the wind blows from the East, expect the new and set the feast
13. When the West wind blows o’er thee, departed spirits restless be.
14. Nine woods in the Cauldron go – burn them quick and burn them slow.
15. Elder be ye Lady’s tree – burn it not or cursed ye’ll be.
16. When the Wheel begins to turn – let the Beltane fires burn.
17. When the Wheel has turned a Yule, light the log an let Pan rule.
18. Heed ye flower, bush and tree – by the Lady blessed be.
19. Where the rippling waters go, cast a stone and truth ye’ll know.
20. When ye have need. Hearken not to other’s greed.
21. With the fool no season spend or be counted as his friend.
22. Merry meet and merry part -bright the cheeks an warm the heart.
23. Mind the Threefold Law ye should – three times bad an three times good.
24. When misfortune is now, wear the blue star on thy brow.
25. True in love ever be unless thy lover’s false to thee.
26. Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill – if harm none, do what ye will.

Anyways, guess as long as the medias and narrow-minded will be on earth, Witches are doomed.

Spring is here officially. Ostara for the Witch, the Spring Equinox. The days and nights are now equal in length as we begin to see shoots of new growth and swelling buds on the trees. Energy is building as the days become warmer with promise.
Even though it’s chilly outside, it was hot inside, as my day began with the warmth of my fiancé. The day always goes well when you have a big hug and kiss from your love one before going to work. Even though you hate your job like I do.
Anyways, Spring is now here. Get your bikinis out, we will soon be able to get a tan and wash away our winter faces. The streets are covered with dust and gravel, take a good draw of air into your lungs!
In this day of wakening, we are cruising towards global warming as the summer, as usual, should be hot and rainy.
Either ways, take time to celebrate Ostara just by taking a walk with the pooch, without forgetting his crap on the roadside of course, and take a good breathe.

Ostara
