Peace on Earth

As a child, Silent Night was my favourite Christmas carol. When I was growing up, I would walk around the farm (probably while I was chipping Bathurst burrs for $1/hour!), singing it to myself, trying to hit every note perfectly. It remains one of my all-time favourites, and this version is delightful!

A very blessed Christmas to each and every one of you, as we celebrate our Savious Jesus' birth. Lots of love & Christmas cheer from my family to yours, and peace, health and happiness to you for 2010. Bloom xxx

  4. Peace on Earth???

    Aren’t humans amazing Animals? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

    Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

    So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions of more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

    Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

    Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and once a year send out cards praying for "Peace on Earth."
