This is really nothing but just this side of weird enough to note. Around this past April, I had misplaced a necklace. Nothing special at all, I just really liked the thing; a small bronze glittery ball on a bronze colored chain. I looked everywhere, couldn't find it. Looked in all the places: all my purses, my jewelry dresser thing, drawers, under the bed, you name it. It seemed to be lost. Every now and then I'd go and look again but it never turned up.
This morning, as I was doing the dishes, I had the random thought "I really want to find my necklace!" Then I put it out of my mind. This afternoon, I picked up my large canvas bag I use as an overnight bag. I had tossed it on a chair when I returned from an overnight visit out of town a couple of days ago. I pick up the bag to put it in the closet, and, as I'm zipping it up, I notice something sparkly on top of the zipper. There it is, the little bronze necklace! It was just like someone had specifically placed it there. I was very surprised of course -- no idea where it could have come from! -- but was grateful and made sure I said so to whoever, or whatever, it was that put it there for me to find.

Kithra's Krystal Kave: Olympic Opening Ceremony
I watched the first hour of the Olympics’ Opening Ceremony last night, before turning it off in disgust. I thought it was dreadful, and boring, and lacking in continuity. While I appreciate the theme behind it, I found the actual show itself simply terrible. However, it seems that, for the most part, the media had given it nothing but high praise. Apparently, a third of the UK population watched it, but how it was understood by the one billion people around the world who saw it, I can only guess. A great many of them must have been left very bemused.

Henry Makow used to be the darling of Jeff Rense.com, but some tiff occurred between them and Rense no longer links to Henry Makow. (For those unfamilair with Makow, he writes homo-phobic, anti-feminist, misosgynistic and anti-Semitic pieces that, regardless of the main theme of any given article, are summarized with the conclusion that these crimes against society are the work of commie-lesbo-Jew-Illluminati-Satanists.) Unfortunately, as we know, there is no lack of bigots out there and Rense has simply continued linking to such people; one such person is Paul A. Drockton M.A. In the following blog, he rants about gay Mormons leaving the church, and for Drockton, that's a good thing:Paul Drockton: Gay Mormons Leave Church. Who Cares?
