Think  you HUMANS have the market cornered on carrying the burden of life’s worries

on your shoulders,  stressing out over the day-to-day needs that must be met if you are to

keep alive… gym, tan, laundry   food, shelter, clothing, etc. ? Oh, and a new iPhone. Right?

 

 

Guess what? W_R_O_N_G_O, pal!

 

 

Ever heard of :

 

 

B A L D    C H I C K E N S ??????  Yep. It IS a real problem. Thank goodness, someone has help for that.

HEY. Did I detect somebody snickering?

You are a cruel and horrid creature to laugh at chicken baldness! So stop it!

Don’t be rude, dude.

crazycat

 

Ok. Stop, now, ok. Good. Thanks.

 

 

Yeah, okay I giggled too, at first…till I paid a visit to the kind-hearted site which features help for rescue chickens that are destined for slaughter after they are done on production farms…a sort of old-age adoption to regular folks until they reach their NATURAL end-of-life time.

Seriously, dude in the back…contain yourself…ok? Wow. SO rude.

 

 

 

Karma loves to bite laughers when they least expect.

 

You won’t be laughing when you realize that

you seem to have misplaced your pants…they’re  simply, missing…

and…uh oh, you are NOT going to like this bit of news, but Karma just took off

down the street with them…hey dude, you might want to cover yourself up, at that point…

 

…the rest of us will see that a bald chicken has nothing on you…

KARMA

Aha, I just knew you could understand!

 

Let’s see where was I going with this…

 

OH! YES…chicken rescues.

Bless those kind, humane and compassionate folks who help the abused,  neglected, elderly, or unwanted animals.

There is even enough love for the chickens, which is special to us, in our own hearts; we had some of our own for many years. (HECK NO, we did NOT eat them, either…only their eggs…so please perish that thought!)

Would you like to learn more?

http://www.littlehenrescue.co.uk   site’s mission claims:

We are a ‘not-for-profit’ organisation, this means every donation that comes to us, goes back into the organisation much like a charity. Everybody who works and helps are here on a voluntary basis. We are a work in motion, everytime we have a rescue another enclosure is erected, or more poultry crates are bought.

Our aims are to give farmers another option to slaughter, as we and lots of you know these hens have so much more to give and many more years. We rehome the hens on to people like yourselves with a good pet home for life. 

We regularly save caged, barn and free range laying hens, and have set dates to collect from our regular farmers.

By the way, if you happen to appreciate this noble effort and would like to help out, they graciously accept donations and would love your help.

:)

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HAVING A CHICKEN OR TWO, or better, like five. They really are pretty cool pets. They eat weeds. They eat up most types of bugs. They make poop which is excellent for fertilizing soil in the garden. My poop, not so much.

They actually look forward to YOU coming outdoors to see them. They even run to you…funny  HYSTERICAL to see yes, but they miss you, AND they often expect a little snacky, like veggie peelings, stale bread, some old fruit as your token of appreciation. I mean, to see them break into that bizarr-o break-neck run….that deserves a spot on America’s Funniest Home Videos and a little treat, really.

Empty-handed is just wrong. Seriously. Wrong.

Do it once and find out. Yeah…so be nice a toss ‘em a little something and keep the toes covered, too. Some more curious hens like toes.

chiken

C J says:

“Everybody should try to raise a few chickens at least once in their life — it’s an awesome way to teach your kids about animals and responsibilities…like the rescues…they are looking to place these older hens in homes for adoption. In return, many still lay fresh eggs.

What is not to love about the freshest, most delicious eggs you can get? The hens live just a few good years. Every other year we’d hatch some new chicks, which would end up being more roosters than hens, lol. We kept a little flock here for years, but we decided to let the last flock dwindle down, and gave the last few hens to a neighbor. They live there now. We can free ourselves up to go away on last-minute trips a lot easier this way. I preferred hens only, due to noise a rooster can produce. Which is a lot. All the time. They were a great learning experience for me and I enjoyed them a lot. I had names for my girls and appreciated  and respected them. They were all free-range, too.”

Hey there everyone! Welcome back! I am happy that so many enjoyed the “Tarsiers” I put up last week!

It was pretty funny, wasn’t it? I must confess, it’s these little weird animal bits that make me look pretty cute in comparison…

 

MORGUIE

MORGUIE

 

 

 

I mean, I don’t want to seem conceited here, but as a mouse, I think I might be getting cuter by the day, if you compared me to some of these less fortunately blessed, less handsome creatures…which brings me to wondering why science jumps to quick guesses about the lesser known animals in supposing that they might be automatically of rodentia family BEFORE they realize they were all wrong…of course, the primates earn my full respect (and condolences, too) especially now that an awful lot of these critters belong in that family…the red-headed step-children beaten with an ugly stick? At least!

Maybe that’s part of the problem…it’s not an easy life being a rodent, I can say that with certainty! But, in honesty, I am proud to be ME, just as I am. Look into my eyes and tell me you don’t think I’m just cute enough to love, just a wittle little teensy weensy bit? 

It could be ‘worse.’ Take a look at this poor little dude…the Aye Aye. Oddball name for an even more oddball-looking critter. Umm, trying not to judge, but I think this guy has a face that only his mother could really love.

Oh, shame on me! That was NOT nice. But, really…

And, with Mr. Morgan Freeman narrating the clip, as in the previous clips, it’s sure to coax a giggle…that man is ‘magical’ with his reading, to be sure!

As ever, I thank you again for gracing us with your visit today.

Hugs, Morguie the Mouse

Morguie:

The other day I talked about a place that put itself ahead of serving others, as regarding meeting the needs of grieving families in a funeral service setting…HERE IS A SHINING EXAMPLE OF EXCELLENCE!

Originally posted on A Simple, Village Undertaker:

Over the last 36 hours, I have been reminded not once, but twice, why I have chosen this career.

The goal now is to be able to tell the story without it dragging on.

The first reminder is easy. Casket topjpeg

We were serving a family at George Funeral Home and the wife of the man who died, told Allen, the manager of the funeral home that she used to live in NJ and that I buried her mother and aunt when I worked at Quinn-Hopping Funeral Home in Livingston, NJ in 1990 and 1991.

We come into people’s lives in ways that often cause them to remember us, even twenty three years later. For me, that was a great compliment and I had a chance to chat with her yesterday and thank her.

The second story is not so short.

I live and work in a fairly sterile segment of funeral…

Morguie Chats With C J : How Do They Move On? Survivors of Those Presumed Dead

Posted in Airplane, Airplane crash, bereavement, Death, Grief, Haunting, Life, Losing A Parent, Loss, Love, Memorialization, Mourning, Relationships, Spirits, Thought For Today, Tragic death with tags , , , , , on March 26, 2014 by C S Thompson

**The past few weeks have been wrought with an endless stream of media coverage and global debate over the mysterious disappearance of the Malaysian airliner that was en route to China. Every theory from terrorist plots to parallel universes have been suggested, however we still have no idea (at the time of this writing) what became of the Boeing 777 and the 239 people aboard it after the communications ceased shortly after it took off from the airport in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on March 8. 

On March 24, the Malaysian government decided to make an announcement concluding that the plane ‘had crashed into the sea; based on an analysis of the last-known signals the jet sent to a satellite, the plane veered to a remote location far from any possible landing sites…have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived.’ — Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak statement.**

Boeing 777-200

“C J, what happened to all those people on that plane? How could they just disappear like that?” I asked.

“I don’t know, Mouse. Nobody really knows right now.” C J replied.

“So why did they say that the plane crashed into the ocean if they don’t know?”

C J stared blankly back at me. I could see she didn’t understand it, either. But she tried to explain.

“Well, Mousie, I suppose it’s been pretty crazy over there in Malaysia and in China for all the people waiting for some word about the plane.  After all, so many people were on that plane and if they all have families waiting at home for them…,” her voice trailed.

C J continued, “…I’d guess it must be pretty awful for those people just to wait and wait…and still no plane yet. I mean, where really could it be? It’s still being searched for. They haven’t given up looking. But the Chinese people are really upset and afraid they aren’t getting the truth about the whole thing.”

“Why?” I asked.

“Well, probably because there are so many different ideas about what might have happened. Those poor families have to rely on what news they are getting. It doesn’t help when you live in countries that don’t allow freedom of press or that don’t completely trust one another, diplomatically.”

“So, do they just go home now and forget about picking that family or friend up at the airport now? What do they do now? What does this mean? Might somebody swim away somehow, like a miracle, and make it back okay?”

C J looked at me and half-smiled; I know she thinks I’m silly…until she remembers that I am just an animal. I don’t understand, really.

Isn’t it possible for some strange miracle? Isn’t that what this thing humans call “hope” is about?

“Mousie, I wish I could tell you what you wish to know. Sadly, the only thing I do know: there are a great many people in terrible angst over the status of their loved ones at this moment. Some may have even lost more than one or two family members or good friends. It is awful not to have any idea if they died, especially since there is not one shred of evidence saying so.

They have not seen one piece of wreckage yet! No dead bodies. No luggage. No bits. No pings from the aircraft’s black box.

Therefore, it is a huge shock in the first place just trying to understand that the plane just vanished, seemingly. Then weeks go by. Nothing. Think about it. NOTHING! Yet, those people are waiting, going on worries and no sleep. They imagine the worst, but they pray for miracles. Day in and day out. Imagine living each day like that…,”C J explained.

“I can’t imagine how painful for them that must be. It truly must be awful,” I replied.

“  But, Mouse, you see, that’s not such an easy thing to just understand or accept, especially in this situation.”

“Is that because they think they are lying? Because they don’t trust?”

“No, no! It’s because there’s no reason to point to which definitely says ‘yes, it is so, yes those people on the plane are dead’ and the reason to hold onto hope still exists, however it is getting late, and the chances seem not to be in favor of finding anyone alive, I would suspect,” C J said.

“Mousie, it’s very complicated. Just know that this is like a worst-case scenario for people who must grieve a loss over the death of a dear one. It is an untimely, unexpected death. In addition, it comes without any reason or explanation. And the hardest part: there isn’t even a body to help make the reality of the whole thing make any sense for the survivors. It’s like the worst nightmare ever. However, as long as there isn’t any way to prove that all of this really happened, the families will continue to believe that somewhere, somehow their loved one may yet be alive.”

 

“What if they never ever find that plane or the people?” I asked.

“Morguie, we need to pray that they DO. Just pray that they do find it. Those families all need the final answer. They cannot go on living like this without one, forever unbelieving. Some of them won’t be able to go on.  Even though they really must live on, some people tend to wither away due to tragic circumstances such as this. With the whole world concerned over this mystery and unanswered event, we all need to know how the story will end. Until then, let’s keep those who wait for missing family members in our thoughts and prayers.”

 

May they all be comforted knowing the entire world waits with them in spirit, for the definitive answer. May they have peace and consolation they need once the truth can be known.

 

Until then, let no one disparage them for their faith and hope in what may be possible.

Let the world bestow only mercy and compassion upon those at the darkest hours of their sorrow and support them through it with grace.

For now, it may be all they have.

C J Talks About: Funeral Service– Part 3

Posted in bereavement, Cemetery, Death, Embalming Room, Eulogy, Friendship, Funeral, Funeral home, Funeral Service Professional, Grief, Life, Losing A Parent, Loss, Love, Memorialization, Mortuary, Mortuary Management magazine, Mourning, Relationships, Remembrance, Tradition, Wisdom with tags on March 23, 2014 by C S Thompson

 

English: Funeral Service of Marie Thérèse Raph...

English: Funeral Service of Marie Thérèse Raphaëlle at the Paris Notre Dame, November 1746 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

As I have mentioned before, funerals are important because they serve the living by honoring a cherished loved one. There is so much beauty and grace in the tribute given to someone who touches our lives in a special way. A meaningful and thoughtfully planned celebration of that person’s life will be shared with family, friends, and others who wish to show respect and sympathy expressed over this loss. It helps to reinforce the reality of the death so that the work of mourning can begin.

A good funeral director knows how to work with a family to achieve this. It is a very personalized service, one which is unique to each family and their loved one.

 I absolutely want to crawl into a hole and stay there when I hear someone tell me of an experience they had that was less than optimum, or that they did not get to have the detail they wished, etc. To me there is just really no excuse for people to be served poorly. EVEN WHEN I HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT, there is a certain amount of shame and embarrassment one feels when news reaches them that somebody else in the profession treated a family rudely, badly, or anything less than perfectly.

You see, the funny thing about a funeral is, you don’t get a ‘do-over’ and there isn’t a rehearsal. One shot to get it right. PERIOD. So everything is about service.

 

As many of you know, I no longer actively serve in the capacity of ‘funeral director’ or ‘embalmer’ but I will always be those things in my heart and spirit; I was meant to do that work. I was born to serve others, help comfort others, and at one time, my whole “universe” revolved around establishing myself in funeral service and becoming my very best professional self at it. Everything went to hell when I injured my back, thus ending my hard-earned career status all too soon. Barring that, I’d still be there.

My ethic remains. Deep down I know I still belong to that work. So I serve in a different way today —  in writing about it, helping to educate others about things associated with it, answering their questions about it, and generally befriending folks who are grieving and come by to read a little here. I also write professionally focused articles for Mortuary Management  magazine, a funeral service trade journal, each month, which really is an honor to do.

Today, I thought I might take a moment to explain to you, my readers and regular folks, what funeral service is NOT. (Assuming most are NOT familiar with the finer details of performing the tasks of funeral director or arrangements counselor).

By the way, IF YOU ARE a funeral provider, take special note, if the scenario I describe next fits your style of handling a client-family,  because it means obviously you don’t know what this business is about. 

English: Flower arrangement for funeral Dansk:...

 

THIS REALLY HAPPENED, an example of which I’ve never witnessed myself (because I never worked with this level of mediocrity or ill-trained staffing in a place), but which had happened to an acquaintance very recently, when she went to arrange her mother’s funeral and burial at a “combo” establishment — cemetery and mortuary all-in-one facility —  and she said she was terribly regretful that she’d gone with that funeral home, in the end. The main reason to do so in the first place was that the mother had begun to look into getting her pre-need plans there and wanted to be buried there as well. The daughter and the family went down to meet with a ‘funeral counselor’ and expressed  their wish to set a service for a certain morning at 10:30 a.m. Turns out, it was a ‘no can do’ situation, which straightaway, in my mind made me think that apparently the place was going to be busy at that time serving another funeral or burial, etc. That would be completely reasonable and understandable and a good reason to decline the family’s request. There are other complexities, possibly for other situations but they did not apply here.

SO what happened?

The DAY was fine, however, according to the funeral counselor,  but the TIME could not be accommodated because…there was a staff meeting set for that time!

Wow! Excuse me? Come again? Did I hear you say, ‘staff meeting?’

WOW! WOW! WOW! Really?

Wow.

Just to reiterate:

> A funeral service professional is supposed to serve YOU, the family.

> If it would appear that,  by YOUR coming to an establishment and requesting service there is somehow going to be a  conflict with that establishment’s set-in-stone ‘staff meeting time,’ then I would BEG OF YOU, to calmly halt the arrangement, immediately, and excuse yourself. If at all possible, take your business elsewhere.

Go to a place where YOUR NEEDS won’t be such an IMPOSITION; go to a place which makes meeting your needs a PRIORITY of the day, instead.

English: fortune cookie Deutsch: Glückskeks

 

Wiki Factoid: Fortune cookies are often served as a dessert in Chinese restaurants in the United States and some other countries, but are absent in China. The exact origin of fortune cookies is unclear, though various immigrant groups in California claim to have popularized them in the early 20th century, basing their recipe on a traditional Japanese cracker.The slips of paper with vague prophecies are said to be a purely American invention.

On March 30, 2005, a record 110 second-prize winners won  playing Power Ball…thanks to the numbers printed on fortunes inside cookies made by Wonton Food, Inc. which makes 4 million cookies a day for several different vendors. How do they know the numbers came from fortunes? Nearly all of the winners had selected the same Power Ball number “40″ — that’s how.

Each of those prizes was worth $100,000-500,000, depending on whether they paid extra an $1 for “Power Play” multiplier feature. WOW! The top prize paid on that draw was $13.8 million, because the Power Ball # was actually 42, which was machine-drawn, or quick-picked.

CJ finally got her new washer delivered— she’s buried in a backlog of laundry, and other human concerns…so I get a second post in a row!! Then she has tons of backlog in the reading of her followed blogs—she’s 2 weeks behind, now! So hang on kids, she WILL be around soon, she promises! 

For now, I get to show a

sweet little clip about owls that we saw on 

one of our fellow blogger’s sites recently…

It’s very cute, because of the owlets — C J’s favorite bird family is the owl.

What makes it so funny is the narrator’s voice! SO turn up the sound!

The voice-over is so much fun, I hit replay, to hear it again, lmao!

Okay, so I have more time than …well, LOTS of idle time, I’ll leave it at that.

Burn the land and boil the sea. You can't take the sky from me. There's no place I can be Since I've found Serenity......But you can't take the sky from me.

Living with Shadows

I'm a woman in my 40's and finally feeling that I know who I am and why I am, I would like to share the shadows from my life. Having got here fairly intact and along the way found the ability to take a step back and see things more clearly it is my hope that perhaps by blogging I may help others through their own dark places.
