Joyce, I always enjoy visiting your AD pages. How fun to get a glimpse of where you live. It sounds like a very beautiful place. I hope this year you get just the right amount of rain and that your garden flourishes. Fresh spinach is the best! Yumm! Do you have a flower garden too? Jill

Christmas in Australia 2007 (Poetry) - 1/1/2008 12:54:42 PM
Not just Australia...but Europe...the crazy all over. Last year, we couldn't get rid of the rain; two years ago, we couldn't buy it. So far, this is the warmest fall and winter on record. Hopefully, this year will straighten out this year, but have my doubts: Katy, bar the door, it's gonna be a bumpy night! LOL Well done, Joyce, Happy New Year. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Christmas in Australia 2007 (Poetry) - 1/1/2008 12:43:22 PM
Crazy weather all over, not just in Australia! Here we've had a relatively mild winter with relatively little rain; we are under a high fire danger here today. Windy here, but with brght blue skies; gorgeous! Cold too, which I love! :) Supposed to be near seventy by the end of the week; grrrr!! I HATE Texas winters; not cold enough for my northern blood; when it DOES get cold here, it never stays long enough!! Very well penned; brava! Happy '2008' to you and yours; hope it's your best year EVER!! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in America, Karen Lynn in Texxas. :D From Ohio originally; moved to Texas eight and a half years ago; I HATE it here!!!!

My Nightmare (Poetry) - 11/7/2007 2:06:22 PM
Spider nightmares are definitely the worst kind. I have some nightmares that make me cry out in my sleep, but spider nightmares make me smack at myself to get them off. Last week I dreamt that I'd walked into a web and the spider was right on my nose, I woke up smacking myself in the face ewwww.

No Nothing, but Money (Poetry) - 10/17/2007 10:15:41 PM
What ever Midas touched turned out to be gold but he found out that he cannot eat gold. The level of greed and the trends of today's world are moving to the direction of "putting price on our wildlife" which is very sad indeed. deep, well written and quite meaningful poem. Hope leaders will pay heed to your lofty calls

No Nothing, but Money (Poetry) - 10/17/2007 12:02:44 PM
Thank you for sharing this wise philosophical perspective, Joyce. Money, politics, and religion have been the downfall of this place since the start. All of these "establishments" were created by men and the result is obvious. Thank you for provoking thought. Love and best wishes, Regis

Goodbye Old Friend (Poetry) - 9/26/2007 11:09:53 AM
It's hard to let go of the past -- the memories that one treasures, the outings, the traffic jams, giving others a ride -- such joy. I hope she's off to a good family who will enjoy her as much as you did. It's like saying goodbye to an old friend. Kathy

Nothing like a bond with an old freind,, I am sure she will come cruising by for a visit, or a honk to say hi. Christine

Goodbye Old Friend (Poetry) - 9/25/2007 4:25:47 AM
I know how it was when I had to get rid of my old 1980 Pontiac Sunbird before I got my 1987 Grand Am. I cried for days! LOL I loved that ol' car, even with the wrecks I had (my fault). I kiddingly called my Sunbird my 1980/1985/1986 Sunbird due to parts replaced. LOL I also cried when I sold my Grand Am to get my Mercury Topaz; yes, my cars and I had some adventures! It's like getting rid of an old friend when you sell a car or have to get rid of it. Now my cars are blue; my car is/are my crutches. I walk just about everywhere I go! LOL (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D Cute write!

Oooh, I don't like spiders either, they give me the creeps and the dreams about them is even worse, you've expressed it well in this write, gave me shivers! Blessings, Joyce B.

My Nightmare (Poetry) - 9/15/2007 12:50:59 PM
A most effective "portrayal," Joyce. Love, peace, and freedom from the fear of spiders to you, Regis

My Nightmare (Poetry) - 9/15/2007 9:48:52 AM
Least over here we don't have spiders that bite, or anything else other than wasps. Yet I was bitten by a Funnel when I worked at Dyess AFB in Texas America... lol, that's the main reason I could never work or live in yankyland, well that and the either too hot or cold weather. The only really poisonous thing I've met here is my ex..

My Nightmare (Poetry) - 9/15/2007 7:57:22 AM
I hate dreams bout spiders YURRRRK can totally relate to this. I squish em, redbacks around our house are so common. We don't get the East Coast Funnelwebs down here in SA, but we get their non venomous cousins, which are bigger, but I aint game to test the theory on that LOL...I put the Huntsmans outside usually, but I tell yah, we are getting very short of spiders now, seems the ecology is taking it's toll. Snakes alive here too, specially the brownies, this odd weather is bring them rotten things out premature..I will have to write a tale about how our cat got into an altercation with a King brownie and lived... Ooops off topic here, sorry mate. They say that dreams about spiders is supposed to signify our insecurities, and I dunno if there's any truth to that, but they make your flesh crawl, and that's enuff to make anyone insecure bout their surrounds LOL. Thanks for this gem, now I shall go sweep all the webs off the front of the house, again!! Love to yah Ch'erie PS our Weather is totally Crackers here.

My Nightmare (Poetry) - 9/15/2007 7:18:23 AM
You're not alone in these fears my dear,great poem, love Holly

My Nightmare (Poetry) - 9/15/2007 6:24:36 AM
Joyce~ Being arachniphobic myself, I got creeped out when I read this one. *BRRRR* *cringecringecringe* There's nothing worse than the feeling of a spider crawlin' on your arm or ESPECIALLY walkin' into their web face first in the dark! GAD! Give me the heebie-jeebies! Excellent portrayal of the fear of spiders; you have captured it brilliantly and effectively! From one spider-'fraider to another, (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in America, Karen Lynn in Texas. :(

My Nightmare (Poetry) - 9/15/2007 5:29:54 AM
It must be The Year of the Spider. The little eight leggeds seem to be everywhere right now. I walked right into a huge web spun overnight, right outside our back door. My wife thinks the entire house will soon be webbed over, and that's her new nightmare. Me? I think that would be very cool - especially around Halloween!

My Nightmare (Poetry) - 9/15/2007 4:32:45 AM
Dear Joyce, I have heard that breaking a spider web is very good luck, guess it depends where one lives. Nevertheless it is a nightmare if one is afraid of spiders. A dream book says "we create our own webs or life space, we may go anywhere and weave the life we choose." etc. Well done. Waves of love }}}}}}} Barbara.

My Nightmare (Poetry) - 9/14/2007 11:03:14 PM
GAD, Joyce, that is a horror! 'Bout beat myself stupid: gotta. Get. That. Spider. OFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF Understand your fear. You are not alone. *cringe* EXCELLENT portrayal of a nightmarish situation! Well done. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla. Don't y'all have funnelwebs in Australia?? JAYS--

My Nightmare (Poetry) - 9/14/2007 11:02:11 PM

No Nothing, but Money (Poetry) - 9/13/2007 7:39:27 AM
Bravo my friend, you've given us much to ponder...well done! Blessings, Joyce B.

No Nothing, but Money (Poetry) - 9/11/2007 12:02:56 AM
Wow, you sure got this one right. Money is the route of all evil and it seems to spread like wildfire. Too bad so many people have to be so greedy.... Be safe, Karen

No Nothing, but Money (Poetry) - 9/10/2007 7:12:44 PM
You nailed this one Joyce! methinks it won't be too much longer before we're all extinct, at the rate we're going...Excellent write Love, Eileen

No Nothing, but Money (Poetry) - 9/10/2007 3:41:29 PM
No, but the rate we are going to destroy earth with our carelessness, it will be a moot point sooner that we are realizing. I don't know if you've heard of Edgar Cayce, but in the 40s he predicted the face of the continents would be changed by mid-century. Everyone laughed back then, but now we have evidence of the polar ice caps melting. A thoughtful poem...thanks for posting. I am sure it will get everyone a moment of pause. Elizabeth

No Nothing, but Money (Poetry) - 9/10/2007 3:03:12 PM

Thinking about Space (Poetry) - 9/2/2007 2:36:05 PM
Will mankind ever grow, Brilliant, intelligent and wise? Because heaven should know, Peace Out there in the fresh new skies. My question and sentiments exactly, Joyce. There is substance for thought in your verses. Thank you. Love and peace to you, Regis

Thinking about Space (Poetry) - 8/28/2007 6:26:34 AM
Some actually think we may have to move out there somewhere in the fresh new skies after we completely ruin this planet.

Thinking about Space (Poetry) - 8/27/2007 9:37:46 PM
A well written and refreshing piece pondering the future and what might yet be...... Be safe, Karen

Thinking about Space (Poetry) - 8/27/2007 8:13:42 PM
Interesting thoughts. Unfortunately in the past when we've struck out into new frontiers we've left civilization behind and reverted to our animal instincts. Maybe that won't happen in outer space, I hope not.

Thinking about Space (Poetry) - 8/27/2007 7:14:06 PM
We have to pray for Wisdom and the first step is to admit how stupid we are. I guess that eliminates 3/4 of the world who will not admit that.

Thinking about Space (Poetry) - 8/27/2007 6:34:57 PM
I like this and the question it poses. Nicely done! ((Hugs and LOve)) ~SilentDream

All that is true. But I don't hold much hope for mankind. We keep making the same mistakes. Enjoyed reading. Elizabeth

CRYING (Poetry) - 8/13/2007 9:50:01 PM
Oh heck it stings, no doubt about that...These days I use a natural shampoo and conditoner, and a sorbolene soap, it's less stressful. Thanks for the sharing. Love Ch'erie

CRYING (Poetry) - 8/7/2007 3:08:54 PM
I jump around when soap gets into my eyes; I even scream and yell, I don't think I ever cried tho. LOL! Thanks for sharing. Tavia.

CRYING (Poetry) - 8/6/2007 2:44:39 AM
Really interesting write. I shower and pretend I am in the bath and also pretend my hair is not I am close to crying even without soap in my eyes. Well done.

Written beautifully love the pictures too.

CRYING (Poetry) - 8/4/2007 9:21:55 PM
You are funny,I cry when I get soap in my eyes too. I love it! Hugs From Kay

CRYING (Poetry) - 8/4/2007 12:51:21 PM
Awwwww! This is so cute and yes when soap gets in the eyes it burns and makes us cry. Not so with Johnson's baby shampoo though, wish they made an adult version. Nope, wash my hair in the kitchen sink, easier to control the soap, water and keep those towels closer. Only becomes a problem when my kitties want to play with my hair when I am trying to wash it......... Be safe, Karen

CRYING (Poetry) - 8/4/2007 8:19:58 AM
Joyce, Whilst running my bathwater, I wash my hair and rinse in the flowing water from the faucet. :) SHUT YER EYES and the soap won't get in. I hope. :) An adorable write. 'Course, like Stan Grimes said, be glad you have hair. :) Just got mine cut yesterday, so don't need as much shampoo......LOL Less likely to get soap in me eyes. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

My Tree (Poetry) - 6/29/2007 6:00:17 AM
A wonderful write...we too had one of those wonderful trees, boy to bring so much pleasure with their shade that they provide, their roots can sure cause alot of trouble and expense...You'll have to plant a new one to enjoy watching it grow and await the wonderful cool shade. Enjoyed, well written and flowed wonderfully! Blessings, Joyce B.

My Tree (Poetry) - 6/28/2007 6:57:01 PM
Beautiful write Joyce In New York I had a huge Oak in front of my house by the time I sold the house, it's roots had uplifted the sidewalk 6 inches Yet I never had the heart to cut it down He was there hundreds of years before me. Love & Peace William

My Tree (Poetry) - 6/28/2007 5:00:36 PM
How sad. This same thing happened to my nephew, his shade tree in front of home. Hope you can find a replacement like he did a different type of tree. Beautiful pic, great poem! ET

My Tree (Poetry) - 6/28/2007 12:21:29 PM
Trees are living things that one becomes attached to. I know I love my trees. It is sad when development wipes out a forest in no time at all (see my blog and I hope you can view the photos). Thank you for this, Joyce. Love and peace, Regis

My Tree (Poetry) - 6/28/2007 5:38:38 AM

My Tree (Poetry) - 6/27/2007 10:26:59 AM
OH NO, indeed, and I'm truly sorry to hear this. Earth needs every single tree it can get these days.

My Tree (Poetry) - 6/26/2007 8:41:15 PM
I will never forget how devastated I was when the land behind us was robbed of its trees. Hundred-foot hardwoods, cedars, pines. . .guess you know they scream when the dozer hits. Terrible, terrible. Like Elizabeth says, thank heaven for that beautiful jacaranda. May there be many, many beautiful trees in your future. You deserve them!! 'Pea' <3

My Tree (Poetry) - 6/26/2007 8:31:52 PM
Awwwwww! Why will the tree have to go? So full, healthy and beautiful..... Be safe, Karen

Winter In Australia (Poetry) - 4/15/2007 11:18:34 AM
Seems crazy, thinking of you guys in winter, I wonder if your Christmas cards have snow on, with the red robin... As I kid I used to wish the world was mad of glass, cos the we could look up the aussie girls skirts, blimey somethings just don't change... A great mystery to me how the animals have more sense than us, nipping off to a warmer climate... Guess it's Quantas that have the wings... Well enjoy the winter with content....

Winter In Australia (Poetry) - 4/14/2007 5:33:35 PM
Wish I had wings too! Winters here in Canada can be brutal, but spring is here for us to enjoy. Hugs, Laura

Bittersweet seasonal sentiments, Joyce. Here, it is the start of the warmer times although they have been slow in coming so far. Best wishes to you. Love and peace, Regis

Winter In Australia (Poetry) - 4/13/2007 3:56:05 AM
Alas, neither do I, but I often wish I did. Enjoyed this poem, Joyce, and the pictures. Nature is truly a marvelous thing.

We Didn't Know (Poetry) - 4/10/2007 3:28:36 PM
P O W E R F U L L Y penned warning in engaging lines--well done. I pray it's not too late, but the polar ice caps are melting faster than anyone predicted, Mount Kilamanjaro may not have snow left on top by the end of this decade, oceans are forecast to rise higher and higher, storms are getting bigger and more intense...I think we're in trouble, and we have no one to blame but ourselves. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

RAINING GREEN FROGS (Poetry) - 4/10/2007 3:25:57 PM
A modern day plague?? Wow! I've heard of strange weather events, but never knew anyone who could verify it--until now. Well done, Joyce! (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

RAINING GREEN FROGS (Poetry) - 3/28/2007 8:48:44 PM
Yikes! I love it!

RAINING GREEN FROGS (Poetry) - 3/25/2007 11:32:32 PM
I actually remember reading in the newspaper some years ago about this happening, and another time it was fish that came down with the rain, so I believe you Joyce, really enjoyed the poem, thank you for it, Steve

RAINING GREEN FROGS (Poetry) - 3/13/2007 1:29:57 PM
Your accounting of such an event is marvelous. Yes, I've seen the tiny frogs of which you speak, and many are transported from one country or continent to another. I suppose the moisture in the heavy rain clouds keep them alive until they are so heave it HAS to rain. I enjoyed your story very mucjh. - Bill

RAINING GREEN FROGS (Poetry) - 3/4/2007 10:26:03 AM

Fun read...enjoyed this a lot...

RAINING GREEN FROGS (Poetry) - 2/23/2007 12:20:16 PM
I have heard of this happening although I have never experienced it myself. Apparently, "windspouts" or whirlwinds can be powerful enough to scoop the contents of a pond and later on, rain them back to earth, or so I have been told. Thank you for sharing this delightful happening via your verses here, Joyce. Love and peace to you, Regis

RAINING GREEN FROGS (Poetry) - 2/21/2007 3:37:22 PM
hahaha i know that was a sight to see...i have heard of this and wondered if it was true.... thanks nice share

RAINING GREEN FROGS (Poetry) - 2/20/2007 7:24:41 AM
Yup, it rains many things, I was taught they get caught in a thing called a water spout-sucked up, then dumped- Hence it's raining cat n dogs, it happens at see with fish rather a lot, or is that just a fishermans tale.. LOL Glad you put the footnote...
