Thought for the Day

It’s the End of the World!!
By Briton Ryle
Written Monday, August 21, 2017
Ancient cultures have a variety of myths to explain a solar eclipse, but none have much to do with the end of the world.

Vikings said it was sky wolves who wanted to eat the sun and the moon. Instead of wolves, the Koreans envisioned fire dogs that were sent by a dark power to eat the sun and moon. But the sun was too hot and the moon too cold. The Vietnamese said the sun was being eaten by a giant frog.

The Batammaliba people of West Africa say the sun and moon are fighting. They say the only way to stop the fight is for the people to resolve their conflicts. Seems an appropriate message.




New Feature on my Blog

I hope you are enjoying the pictures I have recently added to my blog, Thought For The Day .  My daughter recommended that I do this and gave me a site that had pictures I could use.  The site is and is free. This site has more than 30,000 pictures to choose from covering all topics you could imagine and many you wouldn’t even have thought of.

I spent several minutes yesterday choosing pics I liked and saving them for future use.  I requested the subject, “people” and got more than 30,000 pictures to choose from for my blog. I’m having fun with this.  It gives my blog a personality and expands my choice of topics.

So if you have a site you want to promote check out  You’ll be amazed at the variety.

Taurus April 20 – May 20

I apologize for not getting the Taurus astrology post up on time.  I have taken on a new project that is very time consuming.  I am making three afghans for three of my great grandaughters to be wedding gifts when the time comes.  Every other one of my children and grandchildren have a hand made afghan and somehow I neglected these three.  I don’t see them very often, but their mother sends pictures.  They are still in their teens so I may have the time to get them made.  However as I grow older I realize I must do this now or it won’t be possible later.  This project is gigantic, with selecting the design, getting the yarn and making over 300 motifs and putting them together.  I think it will take about a year to complete all three.

However I do not like to ignore my readers who seem to appreciate reading about their zodiac signs.  So here is a bit of astrology for Taurus, the bull.

Taurus – April 20 – May 21

Taurus has immense perseverance, even when others have given up, Taurus rages on.  Taurus is not fond of change.  They need order in their life and get very anxious when it is not.  Taurus does not express their feelings openly and their inner self is contained and secretive.  They are very sensitive and like decorations, color and anything that appeals to their senses.

Taurus ladies should take a look at the variety of color and style in my two jewelry shops to find just the right original, handmade accessory for their wardrobe.  The shops can be found at and

Thank you for reading my astrology postings and hope you enjoy the selection  of inexpensive jewelry that I have created for you.
