I like all kinds of things that have to do with family,and with friends,love meeting new people,I am country at heart. I am down to earth, love all people and all things. Can't stand to be lied to or people that are fake. I take life one day at a time. I trust in the higher power to help me find the right path, I am not perfect. I don't expect anyone else to be, I have learned from my mistakes. I have learned to not sell myself short, I know I deserve to find someone special. I have a kind heart. If you wanna get to know me, then come and talk to me as yourself not as something fake with a bunch of empty promises and a bed of roses, just be you, I will respect you more for being who you are. .x.Gigs the Greek.x.

Although it’s not clear at all, even in the rear view mirror of historical fact rather than imaginative play up ahead, whether this undeniably real artifact is really a mouse or a lion, much less which animal symbolism would be stronger human fantasy, more enduring power of story.
See Aesop and Androcles.
Or Barack Obama (black AND white, like Mickey? Lion, man or mouse, maybe a fusion of all three? Is that idea heresy to even play with?) who doesn’t connect to any dynasty corporate or congressional, yet somehow seems to make that positive, an innovation that helps him connect us to futures we can imagine, without playing around about the past.
Long story short, this playful birthday celebration gave me a gift too, a story with power to play with in the real world, imagining how all the elements of man’s myth and reality can connect to build the most wondrous cities — so many colors and shapes for both lion and mouse, Disney and the Danes, dynasty from politics to toymaking, from the personal to the presidency. In thinking and feeling, learning and teaching, giving and taking, head and heart and spirit.
Happy History, Happy Innovation. Play well! .X.GIGS.X. XXXXXXXXX "Guardian Angel"Peaceful

Like "Monkey See," "Love Doesn't Last Forever" has been out of print and hence out of reach for most avid Moore fans for almost a quarter-century, and it's well worth picking up the entire collection for this single jewel alone. .X.BY GIGS THE GREEK.X. XXXXXXXXX "Guardian Angel"Peaceful

A lowly servant had so much joy. The King asked the servant, " Why are you so happy?"
The man replied, " Your Majesty, I am nothing but a servant, but my family and I don't need too much - just a roof over our heads and warm food to fill our tummies ."
The king was not satisfied with that reply. Later in the day, he sought the advice of his most trusted advisor. After hearing the King's woes and the servant's story, the advisor said, " Your Majesty, I believe that the servant has not been made part of The 99 Club."
" The 99 Club? And what exactly is that?" the King inquired.
The advisor replied, " Your Majesty, to truly know what The 99 Club is, place 99 Gold coins in a bag and leave it at this servant's doorstep."
When the servant saw the bag, he took it into his house. When he opened the bag, he let out a great shout of joy... So many gold coins!
He began to count them. After several counts, he was at last convinced that there were 99 coins. He wondered, " What could've happened to that last gold coin? Surely, no one would leave 99 coins! "
He looked everywhere he could, but that final coin was elusive. Finally, exhausted, he decided that he was going to have to work harder than ever to earn that gold coin and complete his collection.
From that day, the servant's life was changed. He was overworked, horribly grumpy, and castigated his family for not helping him make that 100th gold coin. He stopped singing while he worked.
Witnessing this drastic transformation, the King was puzzled. When he sought his advisor's help, the advisor said, " Your Majesty, the servant has now officially joined The 99 Club. "
He continued, " The 99 Club is a name given to those people who have enough to be happy but are never contented, because they're always yearning and striving for that extra 1 telling to themselves: "Let me get that one final thing and then I will be happy for life ."
We can be happy, even with very little in our lives, but the minute we're given something bigger and better, we want even more! We lose our sleep, our happiness, we hurt the people around us; all these as a price for our growing needs and desires. That's what joining The 99 Club is all about." .X.

There was a millionaire who was bothered by severe eye pain. He consulted so many physicians and was getting his treatment done. He did not stop consulting galaxy of medical experts; he consumed heavy loads of drugs and underwent hundreds of injections.
But the ache persisted with great vigour than before. At last a monk who has supposed to be an expert in treating such patients was called for by the millionaire. The monk understood his problem and said that for sometime he should concentrate only on green colours and not to fall his eyes on any other colours.
The millionaire got together a group of painters and purchased barrels of green color and directed that every object his eye was likely to fall to be painted in green colour just as the monk had directed.
When the monk came to visit him after few days, the millionaire's servants ran with buckets of green paints and poured on him since he was in red dress, lest their master not see any other colour and his eye ache would come back.
Hearing this monk laughed said "If only you had purchased a pair of green spectacles, worth just a few rupees, you could have saved these walls and trees and pots and all other articles and also could have saved a large share of his fortune. You cannot paint the world green." Let us change our vision and the world will appear accordingly.
It is foolish to shape the world, let us shape ourselves first. XXXXXXXXX "Guardian Angel"Peaceful
