Coming Attractions

Christmas already? Yep, next week this time it’ll be here. Hope you’ve got all your shopping done. I mailed my cards out the other week. Let’s see who responds. So far I’ve only gotten return cards from the people I was going to drop from my list. Next year I’ll mail out my cards on the 22nd so everybody has to scramble. Ain’t I a stinker?

I probably won’t be here next Thursday. For starters, it’s Christmas. Nobody goes on the Internet on Christmas. For another, almost everything’s closed, and since I still don’t have home WiFi I doubt if I’ll be able to find a place to set up and post. Lancaster County’s libraries are shutting down for both Wednesday and Thursday, in addition to the Ephrata Library being closed on Fridays. That’s three days I have to hunt for someplace to check my email. Therefore, screw it, says I. I’ll just find a funny picture on Google Images and schedule the blog to self-post Thursday morning. I myself probably won’t even leave the house. I’ve got gift books to read and eggnog to drink. If I’m lucky, some channel will run Die Hard, my favorite Christmas movie. Or maybe the library has the DVD. I’ll have to check before they close.

And why don’t I have home Internet yet? Because I had to use the money to buy mandated health insurance for 2015, or pay the massive penalties. Thanks for nothing, Affordable Health Care Act. I think I’ll get sick next year, just to spite the government. I wonder if hospitals have free Internet access?

# # #

That’s Christmas. The library’s following the same shutdown schedule for New Year’s, but somehow that doesn’t seem quite as bad. For one thing, McDonald’s is open on New Year’s Day, so I can post my blog and enjoy my first Sausage McMuffin of the year. A friend of mine down in Valley Forge used to hold a New Year’s party, but she stopped around a decade ago. Since then I’ve been able to get a full night’s sleep (no more long drives home at 2 in the morning) so I’m no longer a zombie on New Year’s Day. I don’t even think I can stay up that late any more. Once you turn the corner of 40, all those new years start to pile up.

If I knew I’d be awake, I’d drive up to Falmouth (it’s near Three Mile Island. Get out your maps.) and watch them lower the goat from the flagpole. Stop your outraged protests. The goat’s fake. Here in my corner of Pennsylvania they drop all sorts of stuff, like red roses and white roses and Lebanon bolognas and giant M&Ms and a Hershey Kiss and a wrench (Mechanicsburg) and strawberries and fun things like that. Falmouth is known for its annual goat races, so they drop a goat. About the only place that doesn’t drop anything is Ephrata, so I have to go out of town. Looks like I’ll have to go out of town for Internet. Maybe it’s time to move?

Again, I’m not sure if anyone bothers to go on the Net or read blogs on a holiday, so I’ll have to decide whether I want to bother posting or not. Let me see if I can come up with a topic. I can always postpone it until Friday, when the Lititz Library will be open and people’s eyes will be properly focusing again. I could write about the perils of sleep deprivation. Sound good to you?

# # #

New Year’s is when I usually make resolutions that I break within a week. This year I’m going to make an effort and attempt to send out at least one sub a month. Because I’m not that fast of a writer, I’m going to cheat and finish some manuscripts I already have started. I’m including self-publishing in this, so if I end up self-pubbing twelve porn stories that’ll satisfy conditions. Only things I might get paid for count. No more free reads from me in 2015.

First up will either be the porn story I never got a cover for, or The Mountain Lion King. Somehow I screwed up and actually worked on it, and now the first draft’s almost done. How’d that happen? One to two pages a day every day, that’s how. Slow and steady, people. That’s how it’s done. Once I edit, polish and type it up I’ll be sending it out to the group to make sure I have all the facts in our “universe” straight, and then it’s wrestle with formatting. If I can pick up the pace, it may be out by the end of January. I want to get a Talbot’s Peak story on the market fast—well, fast for me—to take advantage of any good press generated by Love to the Rescue. We’re starting to build a fan base. We’d better produce.

Right now it looks like the book after that will be a M/M shapeshifter story for Siren. Or vampire cowboys. Or porn. The year hasn’t even started yet. These things are still subject to change.

# # #

Finally, Stray Kitty’s got company. My neighbors across the street have an indoor/outdoor cat who’s started coming around. Peanut’s friendly as all get out when you’re in his yard and his people are there. Once he steps off his turf he might as well be feral. But that was before. Recently he’s started coming up to me in my yard. That’s probably my fault. I made the mistake of giving him some dry food once. Now I’m his bestest buddy. Stray Kitty is not at all happy. The other morning I heard noise on the porch and there was Stray Kitty scrunched up by the door and Peanut prowling around the steps. I had to feed both of them, with separate dishes at opposite ends of the porch while making sure each cat had a clear escape route, just in case. At least Peanut lets me pet him. I don’t even have pets of my own. I should get a dog. And how is your holiday going?

Angelic Forecast from Volcano ~ December 15, 2014

Weekly Angelic Forecast from Volcano 

Straight from the Carnal Cherub himself...

Angelic Forecast ~ #328 

The Quickening Rise of Freedom and the Maverick Spirit of Humankind ... this week a major and magnificent turnpoint arrives as more in the worldwide population spiritually reach for freedom -- while stampeding away from the gathering evil forces of tyranny.

On the AWAKENING front, the Massive *Circus Circus* Dumbing Down of the People Reaches a New Height

However, the Aquarian Age AWAKENING superstorms over the entire planet. Out of this growing AWARENESS, chaos will rule for a time. This, because the 'unaware' among us, and the dark-side controllers, will battle against the AWAKENED ONES for Earth's future.

On the magickal, mystical front, this week the 'Mages of Ages Lost' cast forth great lightning bolts of magick, destroying the black-hearted conjuring of the Viper elite magicians. This will look like the curtain being pulled back in the "Wizard of Oz"... thus, the many exposures of traitorous and murderous acts in the coming weeks.

Also, the resurgence of real magick continues to expand as humanity reconnects with each other in powerful and loving ways -- as we learn how to connect with Mother Earth in ever deeper ways. And so it will be.

On the personal front, a which way? wacky week of possible misdirection and even treachery. Watch your backside. Watch your front-side. Watch every side.

This week is also about making merry with family and friends, or those you cherish the most. For, LOVE is in the air, and this is a wonderful time to express your true feelings.

On the career-job side, look for the 'unusual' to assist you in gaining ground. With the high level of changes occurring, now is the time to be adaptable and innovative. As well, this is an ideal time to make good business connections.

On the paranormal front, the MURDER OF MARS

Blurb from Unknown Country: Mars was Murdered, Friday December 12, 2014 ~ Dr. John Brandenburg on the horrendous and violent past of our sister planet Mars. Was Mars murdered in an atomic holocaust millions of years ago? The evidence will horrify you.
John Brandenburg and Whitley Strieber have a long association, going back to the earliest days of study of the Mars face. Listen as John tells of findings that JPL and NASA simply will not face--and explains the science that supports his startling claims.
If John is right--and the evidence is very powerful--then we don't understand our past at all, and remain in ignorance at our peril.
Visit John at

On the rewriting history/herstory front, HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Ancient Egypt: Alien Artifacts Could Rewrite Egyptian History ~ By Susan Duclos ~ December 15, 2014
Fascinating and remarkable ancient artifacts have been discovered in a former home of Sir William Petrie in Jerusalem which could totally rewrite Egyptian history. These artifacts shown in the video below include relics and remains of what appear to be "aliens," but it is unclear if Petrie was hiding this knowledge or was waiting to reveal these artifacts after he had researched them more but died before his research was complete.
One object described as an "alien device of some kind," is a plate-sized "disk object"  allegedly made out of gold, has a sealed transparent top and outside there are mysterious symbols that do not appear to be Egyptian in origin. The device is clearly technology far advanced from what the people of tht time were capable of."

On the land changes front, Superstorm events, extreme high-low temperatures, flooding, more sinkholes, fireballs streak across the sky, terrible droughts continue, Volcanoes erupt bigtime, the cooling sun... BOOM EXPLOSIONS around the world... and shake, rattle, and roll, it's all in the moving tectonic plates ... the EARTHQUAKES continue.


And, on the California front, superstorm systems will likely rage across the state periodically for the next three months. Prepare and take care.

On the economic front, Another Wall Street Bailout While You Live Homeless On Starve Street

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "House Passes Government Funding Bill with Bankster Derivatives Bailout Provision
Kurt Nimmo | Preparation for the next bankster bailout."

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "New Federal Law Targets Retirement Benefit Cuts: “We Thought Our Pension Was Secure”
Mac Slavo | The $1.01 trillion spending bill being moving through Congress right now includes some new provisions that may come as a shock to millions of American pension holders."

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Senate Passes Budget Over 6X Larger Than Number of Galaxies in Universe
Kit Daniels | Federal budget makes cosmos look less significant in comparison. The $1.1 trillion spending bill approved by the Senate Saturday night is over six times larger than the estimated number of galaxies in the observable universe."

Meanwhile, the worldwide economic war heats up with 'oil prices' being the weapon of choice. However, these financial war games will NOT play out as has been planned by the new world order criminals.

Eventually, the people will be the REAL WINNERS.

On the truth front, the dark-side's fear of TRUTH, and the onslaught of revealed Truth from every sector of society. Now comes forth, the wildest, most far-reaching sci fi stories that will be offered as TRUTH. Because most of these whistleblower-offerings will be either the truth, or close to the truth.

HEADLINE: Climate Engineering Pilot Disclosure?

Of course, the Viper elite will counter with their minion-propaganda infiltrators, who will pretend to be on the good side, and offer truth as lies. Discernment is more important than ever at this *Great Change* turnpoint into the Aquarian Age.

On the war front, The Russian Bear Growls ... The Chinese Dragon Thrashes Wanting Dominion ... And the Black World's Army Battles Them Both

A massively unstable week, and times ahead. The final gambit for the dark-side powers that be, is all-out world war. However, they have failed, and will continue to fail. This, despite the horrific, brush-fire war theaters across the planet.

Further, major EXPOSURES of the war profiteers will increase. This, via the alternative media. For, the glaring Light of the Divine is here without mercy.

On the *exposure* front, HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Stunning Interview with Jim Marrs Comparing the False Flag Events of Pearl Harbor, JFK Assassination & Dead Bankers"

On the tyranny-at-work front, The Looming Civil War Unless the People Stop It

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Police: Armored Military Vehicles Needed for ‘Constitutionalists’ with Firearms ~ Mikael Thalen ~ December 13, 2014
Shocking video provided exclusively to Infowars shows a Washington state sheriff’s deputy proclaiming that law enforcement officers need armored military vehicles because of “constitutionalists” with firearms.
The footage, recently captured in Spokane Valley, begins with a local resident asking two deputies why police would need vehicles specifically designed for warfare abroad.
“I mean, we’ve got a lot of constitutionalists and a lot of people that stockpile weapons, lots of ammunition,” one deputy says. “They have weapons here locally.”
The startling admission not only points to active surveillance of legal gun owners, but of those who support the country’s founding document, further solidifying concerns among law-abiding citizens that police are receiving military equipment and training in order to target conservative Americans.
The deputy’s specific mention of “constitutionalists,” a broad term covering millions of Americans, as opposed to criminals in general, also indicates a clear training mindset linked to the FBI and Homeland Security, two groups which have absurdly labeled “liberty-lovers” as terror threats.

On the communication front, Rapid fire e-communication now rules the destiny points of the world. For good or evil, e-communications are the rat-tat-tat 'shots' heard 'round the world.

This will become more apparent and transparent with the continuing protest movements against police brutality, and the other dark-side socially engineered ills which afflict us ALL. Thus, mastery of this ability to instantly communicate is an endgame unto itself in this epic battle between good and evil.

As well, the ability to hack e-devices is a major battleground strategy, currently being dominated by the white-hat forces.

On the home front, the Great Taxpayer Revolt ramps us, and sweeps nonstop across the country. For, the people have had enough. And only fools continue to pay for their own destruction.

On the food front, Using Your Tax Dollars via the FDA/USDA to Shut Down Farmers Based On the Rockefellers' Model of Agribusiness

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Why Rockefellers Aim at Destroying Farmers Worldwide?
We are not told the true effects on food quality that has been created by the mechanization and industrialization of food production in America since the Harvard Business School, on a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation, began what they termed “agribusiness,” the conversion of our food supply into a pure for-profit vertically integrated business modelled on the Rockefeller oil cartel.
The raising of hogs, dairy cows, beef cattle, chicken all became industrialized gradually after the 1950’s in the USA. The baby chicks were confined to spaces so tiny they could barely stand. To make them get fat faster, the owners would pump them full of antibiotics and feed them a diet of GMO corn and soya meal. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, 80 percent of all antibiotics sold in the United States are for use on livestock and poultry, not humans. The majority are given to animals mixed in their food or water to speed growth. After all, time is money."
First appeared:

On the energy front, The Cornucopia of Innovative Energy Devices Now in Existence

The time has arrived for ALL those who are able, to build and/or purchase alternative energy systems/devices of any type. That is, whichever will serve you and your home situation the best. For, this will allow the revolution-evolution in 'free/low cost' energy to emerge planet-wide.

Also, the more we assist each other in utilizing off-the-grid systems, the better prepared WE all will be for the superstorms of life. Like-minded communities, as has been stated often, are the key to surviving and thriving.

For an overview of alternative energy devices:

On the really bad news front, You Are Big Pharma's Chump

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Big Pharma's secret payments to corrupt doctors, scientists finally to be exposed by US government
(NaturalNews) The legacy of back room wheelin' and dealin' by the drug industry, which routinely pays off doctors and academic researchers to hawk oftentimes dangerous and ineffective pharmaceuticals and medical devices, could soon be blown wide open..."

On the good news front, Growing Organic, Good For You, Good For Mother Earth

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Good News for Organic Farming -- Berkeley Study Says Productivity Higher Than Previously Thought
Natural Blaze - Organic farming is of course environmentally and socially sound, but many critics have argued it simply cannot compete with industrial farming which uses chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and even genetically modified crops. However, a new study conducted by UC Berkeley challenges that notion, proving the gap between organic and industrial cultivation is not only smaller than previously thought, but most likely can be closed or exceeded with proper research and development."

On the global mafia cabal front, Splintering Factions, More Dead Bankers, And  The Berserker Insanity of Wall Street

From a previous forecast: "the *too big to fail and jail* banking-cabal continues to slide downward into an abyss of its own making. While the process is slow, the sliding-crash picks up speed this week. In part, this is because those who don't want to 'kill the golden goose' are intervening, and want to bring in a new financial system that will eliminate the massive corruption.

However, the berserker psychopaths in charge are still viciously fighting each other to be king of the financial hill. Out of this, the stock markets wiggle and wobble, but don't quite fall down -- even as the market manipulators continue their smoke-and-mirrors deception with currency that doesn't exist, except as cyber-blib numbers and zeroes."

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Bloodthirsty Bankers: “I Would Crawl on Broken Glass Dragging My Exposed Junk to Get This Deal”
Mac Slavo | Many Wall Street bankers would do anything – literally anything – to make money."

Meanwhile... another banker conveniently falls spiking himself gruesomely.

5 days ago ... Dead banker number 37 for 2014? A man believed to work in the financial industry in London 'fell' to his death and impaled himself on a fence ...

On the heroine and hero front, HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Minnesota schools take steps to reduce GMO foods served to students
(NaturalNews) Public school educators in the Land of 10,000 Lakes have taken a bold first step towards improving the quality of cafeteria food served to children in five Minnesota school districts. Schools in Hopkins, Orono, Shakopee, Westonka, and Minneapolis have announced that they will gradually phase out GMOs (genetically-modified organisms) from their meal offerings as part of a long-term effort to teach students about proper nutrition and the dangers of biotechnology."

On the freedom front, Going to Ground and Preparing For the Militarized Police

At this crucial spinpoint in history/herstory, key individuals and groups who plan to protect their families while taking the country back -- and restoring freedom -- are keeping their heads down. They are hunker-bunkering down for the long 1776 battle ahead.

Many of these loosely woven networks have not been infiltrated, and are wise in methods needed to keep themselves hidden from Big Brother/NSA surveillance.

Even though the freedom revolution won't be televised, stay tuned. But remember, your smart TV is watching you.

On the second amendment front, Why Gun Ownership Saves Lives ... And a Sad Example of What Happens When a Government Seizes the Guns

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Terror in Sydney as gunman takes at least 13 hostages at Lindt cafe, forces crying women to hold black Islamic flag against the window and 'demands to speak to Tony Abbott'"

Flashback info: The real man nicknamed Crocodile Dundee was murdered by the Australian government defending his right to own guns. He had harmed no one.

Trendwise, Resistance Becomes the Social Norm at This Destiny Point

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Flamenco's Repression and Resistance in Southern Spain
Sunday, 14 December 2014 00:00 By Yossi Bartal, Truthout | News Analysis
...Although their actions might irritate conservative flamenco aficionados, who vow to keep the true art of flamenco outside of the realms of politics, they have aroused interest in flamenco among younger political activists alienated from its old-fashioned and conservative aura. By putting flamenco to clear political use, they have transformed not only protest forms, but also flamenco itself, adding a new audacious and revolutionary form of expression to its multilayered manifestations. Their actions give hope for the survival of flamenco as a popular art that finds its way to the daily lives of a generation of young Andalusians.
Against the processes of artistic commercialization and gentrification, their performances seem to declare the known lines of Federico Garcia Lorca's poem: *The weeping of the guitar begins. Useless to silence it. Impossible to silence it.*"

Also, The Great Sex Escape

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Sexodus: Why Are Young Men Giving Up On Women?
Paul Joseph Watson | Why are more and more young men giving up on women and checking out of society?"

THIS WEEK, let your feet dance to the rhythms of life. Let your soul dance to the rhythms of Nature, of the Cosmos.

My Sexy Saturday~Santa Baby, Several Stars Away~first kiss

Sexy Saturday kisses, everyone. 

Here's the first kiss between my heroine, Kaily, and her hero, Dylan, beneath the Christmas tree.

Seven paragraphs from ~ 
Santa Baby, Several Stars Away  
To Kaily, it felt as though Dylan deliberately prolonged the moments before their lips touched because it increased his pleasure, and because it heightened her to a burning want.

His mouth alighted on hers, the sensation feathery. Then, he rested his lips on hers softly yet firmly.

The texture of his mouth, and the wintry coolness thrilled through Kaily, awakening her body, all of her senses--passionately blistering her insides.

Ding, ding, ding...we have a winner, she thought.

Gradually, beautifully, his kiss deepened, his mouth becoming a large dominant force on top of hers. So dominant, she could only succumb, and wish for more.

So much more. Please...oh, please.

The moment it seemed natural, Kaily kissed him back. Need and want uncoiled inside her belly--so long repressed she'd almost forgotten what it felt like.  
For more of My Sexy Saturday
~~~ Kaily and Dylan invite you to read their love story ~~~ 

Kaily has been consumed by curiosity ever since Dylan suddenly appears in her small town. Surreptitiously, she watches the mystery man restore a rundown Victorian mansion, all while his charm and sincerity gain him the good will of most everyone. This is especially true when he volunteers to become the annual Santa Claus for the children at the town's park.

The problem for Kaily: No one really knows anything about Dylan's past or where he came from. With her attraction to him growing day by day, she becomes a driven woman. On a desperate whim, she gives herself to him as a Christmas present. Will Dylan be able to resist her waiting naked, but gift-wrapped beneath his tree?

Four Non Blogs

I couldn’t get the noodle to nood today, so instead of a blog you’re getting the reasons why I couldn’t write one. Or three. I had topics to blog about but couldn’t get them to work. Here’s a rundown on what you missed.

Last week I ran into an acquaintance and former co-worker who’d just lost her job. For the last twelve years she’s been Head Compositor at our town’s weekly freebie paper, the one I used to be a proofreader for. Even before I left, they were losing pages and ads. The last couple years it got even worse. One grocery store that had been running three full-page ads since the dawn of time abruptly dropped out completely, so kiss that revenue good-bye. That sort of thing.

With work and income drying up, something had to go, and it turned out to be the Head Compositor position. She’s been out of work and searching since September. We both figure she was let go because she’d been there long enough to pull down the highest salary. She’s also in her 50s now, which ups the cost of employer-provided health coverage. The other two compositors are in their 30s, have worked there half as long, and are both married, so they may be covered by their husbands’ policies. In short, they’re taking fewer dollars out of the owner’s pocket. Used to be seniority guaranteed your job when the axe began to fall. Now it’s a death sentence. You’re better off having no experience at all. And being under 50.

Inspired by this, I started a blog about my adventures in the work force. I know where she’s coming from. My work experience includes five layoffs in four different professions. I’ve been through more interviews than Larry King Live. I’ve gotten good at spotting the signs you’re not getting the job, even if it seems you aced the interview. Hint: if you talk to somebody and they end the conversation with, “Send a resume,” you’ve just been screened out. Ditto if the interviewer ends with, “I have to clear it with (whoever).” And when they tell you they’ll contact you either way, they won’t. It’s a tough world out there.

I ended up deleting that blog. Too many bad memories, too much bitterness seeping into the words. I’ve been lucky in that my mother left me some cash when she passed, so I’ve been able to sit out the bad job market. At my last interview, two years ago, the girl told me she had to clear it with her boss, and that she’d contact me whatever they decided. Any day now, honey.

While waiting for the phone to ring, I’ve been trying to establish a fiction writing career. That would go better if I wrote faster and had a release more often. More caffeine should take care of that. I’m sure it would help if I did more promotion. Right now all I’ve got is this blog and Shapeshifter Seductions. I’m not on social media. I was going to blog on what tempts a reader to give a new (to them) writer a shot. Is it the cover? The title? The back-cover blurb? Advertising?

That blog didn’t work out either. In exploring my own reasons for trying new authors, I realized I was influenced most by word of mouth. I read Twilight, The Da Vinci Code, The Firm, and the Harry Potter series after they became best-sellers because I wondered what all the fuss was about. But what brought all those readers in to begin with? At one point those writers were unknowns. What got them known? Haven’t a clue.

I can tell you why I started reading Stephen King. It wasn’t his covers or titles, and I hadn’t come across any of his short stories. The back-cover blurbs might have helped, because blurbs let you know if this book’s going to overlap with your interests. However, Stevie was shelved in Fiction back then, and I used to beeline straight for the Science Fiction section, so I didn’t see his titles, covers or blurbs anyway. However, I did see the ‘70s movie version of Carrie. That’s what got me interested. The novel version wasn’t any great shakes. It was Stevie’s second book, ‘Salem’s Lot, that got me hooked for life. It appears the secret is to give the audience something they didn’t know they wanted, but recognize when they see it. Good luck with that. Oh, and write a damn good book so readers will come back for the next one. I’ve got my work cut out for me.

After that blog died on the vine. I decided to write about my adventures with Obamacare. I skipped last year but may not have to pay the penalty because of my low reportable income. Next year the fees go up. Lucky for me, that low reportable income means I received substantial aid from the government. I now have a nice policy that covers the basics, for a reasonable price. Lucky for me, not so much for the people with jobs whose taxes are subsidizing me. Thanks for the coverage, guys. I appreciate it.

I don’t appreciate health care’s priorities. It’s been almost two weeks since I signed up and I haven’t gotten any paperwork yet. It takes at least a week for your info to be programmed into the system, longer to get printed confirmation. In contrast, the insurance company yanked its payment out of my bank account within the first 48 hours. Wonder how long it’ll take me to get a check if I ever have to file a claim?

That’s pretty much where my health care stands right now. Not quite enough to build a full blog around. So that’s out too.

Usually when I run out of topics I either ramble for a thousand words or so, or post a book excerpt. I don’t even have an excerpt to share. However, I do have this little snippet from my WIP. Hannibal Ewing, game warden and bighorn shifter, visits Rick the mountain lion at his den to warn him the bad guy’s back in town and may be gunning for him:

“Thanks for the heads up.” Rick tilted his head to peer up at Han. “How do you people even know all this?”

Han snickered. “Sergei’s dating a wolf who works with a snake who’s living with the staff photographer on the newspaper run by Vern’s son Nick, Vern being Ma’s loving husband. Herd ties and pack bonds. You cats should try it. You live too much of your lives on your own.”

And that’s how it’s done in the small towns, kiddies. Big Brother is watching you. So are Big Sister, Big Auntie and Big Uncle, Grandpa and Grandma, all the Big Cousins and That Creepy Old Guy Down the Street. Who needs cameras? We have gossips. Enjoy your day.

Angelic Forecast from Volcano ~ December 8, 2014

Weekly Angelic Forecast from Volcano 

Straight from the Carnal Cherub himself...

Angelic Forecast ~ #327 

The Phoenix Rise of the Creative Genius ... so it begins as the world spins anew. The true potential and creative power of humankind now surfaces and tsunamis around our beloved planet.

Meanwhile, the dark-side uses every diabolical trick and method available to contain and control the 'creative genius' within us ALL. Out of this full-scale, sci-fi like attack on humanity, there develops an enormous chasm between those who shine with creative brilliance, and those who have been brutally, cruelly shutdown -- their minds severely limited.

On the AWAKENING front, The torch that is the soul of humanity has been ignited and the flame will not go out.

Now, more and more of us will gain a deeper 'knowing' about the power and beauty of our souls -- far-far beyond the "Truman Show" that is this material-world prison. Thus, we will act upon our soul AWARENESS in ever larger ways.
On the magickal, mystical front, this week the 'Mages of Ages Lost' cut the dark energetic ties that bind humankind with great whirling swipes and swings of their lightblades. Now, they are joined by the GOOD beings in the angelic realm who flash and slash with their mighty light swords. For, the Divine time is here.

As Well, at this cosmic turnpoint, the Great Backlash quickens. Every deception, every black-hearted deed perpetrated by the Viper elite, and carried out by their psycho-leader minions, now becomes an immediate karma, lashing them unmercifully. For, so it is.

On the personal front, this week is about exploring your creative side, as well as noticing the creativity of others around you. Look for ways to bring your talents together for the betterment of your immediate circle, your community -- and planet-wide, for ALL.

This is also the perfect time to pull your plans together, finalize, and proceed toward your goals. There could be some glitches this week. However, it's a greenlight 'go' overall.

Further, there could be a situation, an event, that touches your heart deeply. Feel the experience as fully as you are able. For, this is a natural HEART OPENING into the Aquarian Age.

On the paranormal front, The UFO case that will ultimately EXPOSE it ALL.

"Friday December 5, 2014  
British Ministry of Defense Forced to Admit It: Bentwaters UFO Incident Happened!
Linda Moulton Howe interviews John Burroughs, a direct witness to the Rendlesham Forest UFO event, with explosive results. This event, which took place in the UK near the RAF Bentwaters air base, is second only to the Roswell Incident in importance as a UFO event, and, given all the military witnesses who have come forward, could be considered even more important than Roswell.
One of these direct witnesses, John Burroughs, has now forced the British Ministry of Defense to admit the truth: the incident happened and the men who were present were exposed to an unknown form of radiation.

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Five Facts About Who Is Really Behind the Food Stamp Program: One-sixth of the country is now receiving food stamps and the number just continues to climb.
1. Congress Changed the Rules to Get Even More People on the Dole
Congress relaxed the food stamp program standards in 2008 regarding who could receive benefits, then gave the program a temporary boost in 2009 that allowed people to receive even more money every month. (source)
2.The Biggest Food Stamp Lobbyists are Mega Banks and Mega Corporations
Some 76 billion in food stamps were handed out just last year alone. But the biggest recipients aren’t the people on food stamps.
In fact, the biggest lobbyists for the food stamp program aren’t poor people or organizations who represent low-income families, but big Wall Street banks and mega corporations. Two quick examples: J.P. Morgan Chase raked in $209 million for just two contracts agreeing to administer EBT card benefits in Florida and New York; and Walmart made half a billion in food stamps just off Oklahoma residents and in just a two-year period."

On the war front, Flash Bang, Front and Center, the Worldwide Economic War

Look for a series of fast moves on the worldwide war chessboard by the major economic players. The Russian Bear gains ground while the Chinese Dragon controls more of Africa, and becomes a larger naval force on the oceans.

Meanwhile, the high level of treachery by establishment evildoers only accelerates at a dizzying pace. For, freedom, enterprise, and self-sufficiency, must be crushed beneath *1984 big brother* boots. If they are to continue their sinister rule.

Thus, look for the ongoing death of the American dollar.

On the tyranny-at-work front, Bingo Bango, Here Come the Renegade Cowgirls and Cowboys

From the 'November 3, 2013' Angelic Forecast #270 ~ The Rise of Cowgirl and Cowboy Defiance Sweeps Across the Country

***At this turn in history/herstory, those with the spirit of liberty beating in their breasts now spread out on the land, and form their independent communities. Many will also go outlaw as in the DIVINE OUTLAW. They will consciously ignore the demands of the criminal establishment, and live by this creed: do what is right and true and sacred.

For, they have embraced the SPIRIT ENERGY of freedom for All humanity. This Aquarian Age frequency now encompasses the entire planet.

On the AWAKENING front, as the AWAKENING nova-bursts across the world, every form of tyranny will be less and less tolerated by the people. Massive uprisings, riots, and protests will likely become commonplace during the year, 2014.

In opposition, to crush this spirit of true freedom, the dark-side disguises their evil by putting on the 'green mask', and pretending to be the saviors of Mother Earth. Nothing could be further from the truth.***

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Americans Bought More Guns Than Flat Screen TV’s On Black Friday :According to the FBI, last Friday saw a staggering 175,000 background checks processed via the agency’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System, a number the agency says made Friday..."

On the communication front, the Gigundis Propaganda Push by the Presstitute Media ... or how to foment a race war for the benefit of the establishment psychopaths. That is, how to *divide and conquer* the people in this day and age.

Meanwhile, many of the people see through this ages-old ruse.

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Mike Brown’s Cousin: Let’s Not Make This About Race
Paul Joseph Watson | Focus should be on problem of police brutality, not hating white people."

On the home front, the Rise of the Western States ... the battle against land-grab tyranny accelerates. From a prior forecast: "a turn-point... ahead as more of the people jump astride their metaphorical horses, and go renegade cowboy and cowgirl against the system. Their rage continues to gather strength and now firestorms faster. For, being ruled by psychopaths goes against their very being and 1776 spirit."

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Utah to seize own land from government, challenge federal dominance of Western states
Washington Times - In an unprecedented challenge to federal dominance of Western state lands, Utah Gov. Gary Herbert in 2012 signed the “Transfer of Public Lands Act,” which demands that Washington relinquish its hold on the land, which represents more than half of the state’s 54.3 million acres, by Dec. 31."

On the food front, as always, continue to stock up on food, water, and the supplies you need. This becomes more critical as prices rise, and the availability of certain foods/items lessens. Also, the superstorms of life will 'quicken' at this point in time. Be prepared.

As well, as poverty deepens for many, help wherever you feel called to do so.

Electromagnetic Weaponry
Date: 12-03-14
Host: George Noory
 In the latter half of the program, analyst Craig Hulet talked about electromagnetic warfare systems and the dangers of such weaponry. The story first came to Hulet's attention when he learned of a Navy plan to set up a range in the Pacific Northwest which would allegedly test counteractive measures against ground-based electromagnetic weaponry that might be used to disrupt American fighter jets. Further investigation by Hulet revealed similar Naval training is already being done in at least seventeen states throughout America. Despite their attempts to portray the program as akin to radar, he stressed that "make no mistake, these are weapons" and that agitation of aircraft is one of the least potent uses for such technology.
Although this weaponry is considered 'non-lethal,' Hulet cautioned that it "has the ability to do unbelievable damage to human beings." Should electromagnetic weapons be turned on people, he said, they can induce dizziness, nausea, and unconsciousness as well as "fry the water under your skin without burning you, until you are screaming in pain." To that end, Hulet reported that attempts to use these 'non-lethal' systems in Iraq and Afghanistan were halted by the US government after targets suffered horrific deaths from the weapons. While the Army foresees other potential sinister uses for this technology such as mind control and DNA fragmentation, Hulet marveled that "the American people haven't got a clue that this is going on."

On the really bad news front, The Advanced-Tech Militarization of Law Enforcement Here and Worldwide... it's full-steam ahead as mandated by the dark-side system.

Time to duck and cover as much as possible from law enforcement. Time to take over and  'community police' your own home area. Time to befriend good police and constitutional sheriffs.

Further, with the massive increase in crime and murder, take care of yourself and your community. Remember, self-protection is your Divine Right.

On the good news front, people helping people, and taking care of their community.

HEADLINE: "Top Belgian Banker Found Dead In North Sea, Updated List Of Dead"

On the heroine and hero front, ALL the GOOD cops, the constitutional sheriffs, and those who truly protect and serve the people. Thank you. We need you more than ever.

On the freedom front, the renegade spirit burns ever brighter, ever fiercer across the country. From a previous forecast: "Saddle Up, Cowboy and Cowgirl Renegades... it's about to get real rough and tough out there. However, the firestorm that is freedom continues to route the new world order criminals."

Also, The New Freedom Underground Economy... or building/making whatever is outlawed by the dark-side global order.

One example: Underground Ammo, The New Career Opportunity ... a most excellent overview of the U.N. ONE WORLD ORDER'S step-by-step plan to take away our guns, our weapons, and eliminate ammo.

Trendwise, now societal, mindless 'trendiness' slips, and the long cultural slide toward trendy becoming 'untrendy' begins. For, many realize materialism, not balanced by goodness of the heart, is empty and worthless.

Once upon an age-olden time -- before the dense multi-verse was begat -- the material worlds were designed to enhance the beauty of spirit, the power of the growing soul -- to further LIFE throughout all of Creation. Remember, and let it be so again.

THIS WEEK, contemplate what moves your heart and soul. And look for the beauty around you. As you appreciate the beautiful sights and sounds and smells, the beautiful touch of LIFE itself, celebrate those moments.

My Sexy Saturday ~ Ride the Roan Stud ~ kiss me

Sexy Saturday kisses, everyone.

Today, I'm pinch-hitting for my alter ego, Stevie Klark. 'Cause the stud is about to be released at Siren-Bookstrand.


Seven sexy paragraphs from Ride the Roan Stud ~ 

Grant smiled to himself, highly enjoying the uniqueness of the passionate sound. Ignoring his aroused cock, he reached for one of the small towels he’d placed on the nightstand. Using a tender touch, Grant cleaned Ghost Walker’s softening penis, then wiped his hand dry.

On impulse, he leaned over and touched a kiss to the man’s forehead. As Grant rose, he heard, “Kiss me like you mean it.”

The faintly spoken plea hit Grant’s heart square in the center. Like cupid’s arrow, he thought. And dammit, he was a sap for romance at times.

After a moment of hesitation, he bent to Ghost’s mouth. What began as a gentle press of their lips sparked and became volatile desire inside Grant. A flammable liquid might as well have replaced his blood.

“Good enough?” Grant mumbled, once he’d broken their kiss. Was his head whirling crazily, like some horny teenager?

“Good enough,” Ghost Walker whispered.

Grant heard the smile in his voice, then saw the happiness smoothing Ghost’s features as he quickly drifted into sleep.

In Violation of the Man Rules?

So the other week I’m watching The Flash, and he’s up against some supervillain who can transform himself into living steel. This makes your typical superhero fight tough on Flash’s hands, even with those padded red gauntlets. He and the team of scientists he’s working with come up with a plan: if he hits the right amount of speed, comes in from like four miles away, and punches at just the right angle, he can knock the guy out. If any little thing goes wrong, of course, he could wind up badly injured, or dead. But now the bad guy’s captured his girlfriend, so if he can’t deliver the punch—

And I’m thinking, “Dude. You’re the Flash. You’re the Fastest Man Alive. Just run around the guy at superspeed and create a vacuum. Suck all the air out of his immediate vicinity. He passes out from oxygen deprivation and you win. You pal around with scientists. You’re a scientist. And nobody can figure this out?”

Guess not. He ends up punching the bad guy in the face so he can save the girl, because that’s how it’s done in comic books, and the action TV shows based on them. It’s how guys win fights.

Now Spider-Man is a different story. He has the proportionate strength of a spider, which makes him one powerful muthuh. If he punched a normal guy in the face, he’d probably kill the poor bugger. That’s why he uses his arachnid agility to dodge bank robbers’ gunfire and then trusses them up in his web. If he doesn’t punch a bank robber’s lights out (or smash his face in), nobody seems to mind.

Spidey is also, under the mask, Peter Parker, boy genius. On those occasions when his opponent is stronger than he is, Spidey has no trouble using his wits to win the day. If Spidey had super-speed, he would have used the vacuum trick to beat Steel Guy without a second’s hesitation. Spidey’s not only smarter than the Flash, he’s more practical. Spider-Man has figured out that simply punching the bad guy (and getting yourself flattened in the meantime) doesn’t always cut it. Again, nobody minds, because it’s Spider-Man.

I bring all this up because I’m hoping the ending of my latest WIP doesn’t alienate my audience. There’s a confrontation between Our Hero and a Bad Guy with no redeeming qualities. If Our Hero loses, the Bad Guy will kill the love interest. He’s made no secret of his intentions. Told you he had no redeeming qualities.

Just one little problem. These are shapeshifters. The hero’s a cougar and the bad guy’s a Bengal tiger. If the two of them stayed human it wouldn’t be a problem. Our Hero could pound the crap out of him. Unfortunately, the bad guy insists on keeping to his tiger form. Our Hero’s good, but his cougar’s just no match for a tiger in either size or muscle. As far as fighting him in human form, scratch that. Tarzan could kill lions with a full nelson, but first you’ve gotta grab the sucker, and a psycho tiger’s not going to just stand there while you set your hold. Our Hero left his gun at home and doesn’t have time to go back for it. Looks like he’s well and truly up the creek.

There is a solution, and I’ve already got it worked out. I’m just concerned I might be breaking the number-one rule of man fights here, by having my hero win by his wits instead of some physical skill. Because it always seems to come down to a physical battle, doesn’t it?

In a Western, it’s a gunfight. Fast draw wins. (In a Louis L’Amour Western fistfights are allowed, because L’Amour had been a boxer and knew what he was talking about.) Luke and Darth had a lightsaber battle. Harry Potter and Voldemort went at it with wands. Captain Kirk used to punch out damn near everybody. Sure, Spock used the Vulcan Nerve Pinch, but he wasn’t the hero. And my guy’s got … well …

To do him credit, he does briefly fight the tiger physically, just long enough to recognize he hasn’t got a prayer fighting that way. If he persists in following Man Fight rules he’s gonna get clawed into streamers, and where will that leave Our Heroine? So he has to do something outside the rules. In short, cheat.

I did something similar in another book. That hero was faced with a lose-lose proposition as orchestrated by the bad guy. He responded by tricking Enemy #2 into fighting Enemy #1, and letting both his enemies deal with each other while he cleaned out the attacking henchmen. He and the main bad guy never came face to face for a climactic battle. I was never really satisfied with that solution, but it was the only one I could come up with, given the corner I’d written myself into. Had the hero followed his natural impulses and just charged in, he most certainly would have been killed, and a lot of other people would have died nasty deaths as a result. Try explaining that to cheated readers, though.

My only excuse is that the heroine came up with the idea. Women are allowed to use their wits to win fights, since most of them aren’t Xena. Nobody thinks any less of them for, say, blowing up the bad guy with fireworks rather than challenging him to a sword fight (see: Mulan).

The guys, though, they’re pretty much stuck. They have to fight a superior opponent one-on-one. It’s practically written into the Constitution. So what if they’d lose in real life? This is fiction. In fiction, the hero always wins.

I want my guy to win, too. So forgive me if I tip the odds in his favor by having him be practical. He knows his limitations. He knows what’s at stake. He’s going to do whatever he can to keep Our Heroine safe. If that means out-thinking instead of out-punching the bad guy, then so be it.

I hope I don’t alienate too many readers or possible future readers with this choice. I just tell myself that somewhere, Spider-Man is giving a thumbs’-up.

# # #

Quick coda: I just finished reading the last book in a young adult series. The hero fights the bad guy, but he doesn’t stop him. The series’ secondary bad guy has a change of heart, destroys the main bad guy, redeems himself, and dies a heroic death while the alleged hero just stands there. It’s like following Harry Potter for seven books and then Draco Malfoy defeats Voldemort. Pretty much of a letdown.

I guess this is necessary in middle grade/young adult fiction. By Book 5 the hero is only 16, and you can’t have 16-year-olds going around killing people, even megalomaniacal bad guys bent on total global destruction. It’s the same reason heroes of TV shows have their climactic fistfights on rooftops, so the bad guy can conveniently fall to his death. The hero must remain morally upright while still punching people in the face.

If this also holds true for romance, as I suspect it does, then I don’t feel so bad about my ending now. It lets Our Hero remain upright and true while still defeating the Bad Guy and defending Our Heroine. Though it would have been a lot easier if she’d just taken Our Hero’s gun and shot the son of a bitch. I don’t think that’s allowed either. It’d be interesting, though. Who wants to write it? Let me know what editors say, besides no. Writing is a fun profession.
