Canary Islands

Photography Prints

While flying I am high above the earth and it’s problems, I realize  this makes  problems smaller than I am, putting them in the proper perspective. I am bigger and semi-detached from  the earth and it’s problems.

On the flight over, my seat happened to be over a wing and I noticed a crack on the wing, realizing that it hadn’t gotten any worse, I continued to watch it , I figured there wasn’t any use to say anything, there is no place to land in the middle of the ocean anyway.

Upon arriving in Madrid, I immediately exchanged my US dollars for the Spanish Peso. I inquired as to whether this money would be good in the Canary Islands, the young girl replied,”Yes we still own the Canary Islands.”
Just the answer I needed after being up all night!
That’s what I get for asking a dumb question.

My connecting flight to Lanzarote didn’t leave for six hours,  I deducted that the best thing I could do was grab some shut eye on the unoccupied bench in the airport. Using my camera bag for a pillow, and assuming a horizontal positioned I settled in for a long deserved nap.

After departing Madrid, I settled in for the three hour flight, we were barely in flight when I noticed we were still in Spain and we were landing, not knowing what the reason was, I started inquiring as to what was going on. However, no one spoke English. Looking out my window I noticed a road sign that stated we were in Seville. The flight attendants kept telling us to depart the plane while offering no explanation.

We departed and were loaded onto a bus and taken to the airport where we were told that we would be reboarding shortly. Finally, finding someone who spoke broken English, I was told that we had to refuel the plane. We only left Madrid an hour ago, what do we need fuel for? I assume we had some sort of mechanical problem they didn’t want to tell us about.

The Canaries are called Canis Islands or islands of good fortune and are one of the last remnants of the Continent of Atlantis.

Lanzarote now rises from the ocean as a paradise yet undiscovered, it’s many fine hotels and resorts shining in the sun. The continuous building & construction lie as evidence of the potential of this sunshine paradise with an almost perfect climate.

This island has much to offer, from the lava fields formed by volcanoes that erupted simultaneously in 1730 and flowed until 1736. During which time 12 villages were destroyed and 400 people died, one man stayed behind to record everything in detail.

Many souls from Atlantis have found their resting place in Lanzarote, many were trying to escape to Egypt, but they didn’t make it. They were buried deep in the earth to be brought to the surface by the volcanic eruptions of the 1700-1800’s. & laid to rest by the ocean in the volcanic rock. Animal and humans alike, from king to pauper, animals and fishes, even the sacred white dolphin lay at rest in Lanzarote.

As Atlantis sank many were trying to escape to Egypt which existed at the same time of Atlantis and had much of the same technology. The pyramids were constructed by the Atlantians and are much older than most people think, the step pyramid was ancient at the time of Atlantis, as was the giant pyramid of Giza, they date back 10’s of thousands of years.

On the northwest corner of Lanzarote sits Mirador El Rio a very beautiful spot overlooking the Atlantic ,a very peaceful and serene area, and with the development that is beginning, this is sure to become a vacation destination in the very near future.

Cesar Manrique, a very talented architect designed most of the buildings of the island, he is very talented and he has created a masterpiece, blending everything to make it all seem very natural and beautiful.

This island has many natural wonders among them are ; Jameoa Del Aqua a natural lava tunnel is very beautiful when you are in the auditorium it feels very sacred, like being in a cathedral.

Montanas Del Fuego, the Fire Mountain, is located in the National Park of Timan Faya.

The Restaurant El Diablo is located at the top of Fire Mountain and is situated so as to allow one to cook their own meal above a real volcano!

While enjoying this meal, I had the opportunity to converse with many Danes, who own a large share of the property on the island.

The Danes are intrigued by our huge cities, tall buildings and the vastness of our country. It is like Shangrila to them, they don’t understand how we Americans can find anything interesting in Europe, they feel we have it all. Everything of importance to them is in America.

The Snake in the Out Back

Sell Art Online

 

While walking down the path to Mataranka Springs, a nice thermal spring located  just outside of Daly Waters in The Northern Territory of Australia,  Steve, Kathy and I were discussing the fact that we had been told about all of the dangerous snakes in Australia.

We had been in the outback of Australia for over three weeks and hadn’t seen our first snake.

As luck would have it , the words were barely out of our mouth when this mint green, six foot long snake came out of the bush and crossed in front of us, not more than two feet away. We immediately froze in our tracks and never moved!
We were mortified, as the snake slithered away on the other side of the path, he seemed to be saying,” OK you losers, now you have seen me, so what?

Social Security Blues

Sell Art Online

I did some calculating as to what investing $20 a week for 45 years would produce, my results show that it yields more than my Social Security will pay me after my employer and myself gave them up to $200 a week for 30 years. If you draw out 7 % a year out of this fund, it totals about $1900 a month!

And my fund would never run out of money.

Please explain this to the politicians, this isn’t rocket science.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.” As obvious as it may seem, many seem to be totally oblivious to it. Most, if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to overcomplicate the issues. I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice. It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit for. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.

Europe

Art Prints

The main problem with Europe is that everyone speaks a different language, this makes it very hard to communicate and creates divisions between people.

That along with different cultures and customs and manners contribute to their seeming indifference or unfriendliness. Once we learn to communicate, they are no different than us.

 

During my visit to the Canary Islands,I had the opportunity to dine at El Diablo, a restaurant located atop an active volcano. While enjoying this meal, I had the opportunity to converse with many Danes, who own a large share of the property on the island.

 The Danes are intrigued by our huge cities, tall buildings and the vastness of our country. It is like Shangrila to them, they don’t understand how we Americans can find anything interesting in Europe, they feel we have it all. Everything of importance to them is in America. I have encountered this sentiment many times during my travels to different areas of the world.

To me, the thing that is interesting about Europe is the smallness of everything, how close everything is, you don’t have to drive 4 hours to get somewhere. The buildings and towns are smaller and changes in scenery are but 10 minutes away, instead of hours.

Ever since I’ve been knee-high to a grasshopper I’ve heard about how the rest of the world, especially Europe, hates us, this simply isn’t true!

Most Europeans don’t hate us, contrary to popular belief, it is only the far left that doesn’t like us, most Europeans, as well as the rest of the world like and respect us for the good things we have done.

Bad Behavior in Professional Sports

Art Prints

Professional Sports are going through a time when they are getting a lot of bad publicity, with the Micheal Vick incident, Barry Bonds taking steroids and the NBA official accused of throwing games.
There is something at stake here other than their so-called rights  It is time for the sports community to clean up their act, they are in the public eye and are role models for kids. What kind of an example do they set when these sorts of things are accepted as the norm, whatever happened to the idea that good sportsmanship is important. Sure we all want to win, but there are certain things that should not be done in order to accomplish that goal.
How can we expect our kids to become good citizens when they are taught that any behavior is acceptable, society is teaching them the only thing that is important is to win at any cost.
Whatever happened to the time when sports heroes were someone to look up to, they supported their country, they tried to lead good lives and set a good example for everyone else?
I played sports in high school and we were held to a higher standard than the rest of the students, when we got busted for doing something wrong, we were off the team, not only did that create a better image for the sports program, we were also put in a position of having to not get in trouble, our fellow teammates came down on us for letting them down, and it made us into better people by having to live up to a certain standard and by doing that, it kept us out of trouble.
As a society, the sooner we realize that an “anything goes attitude” only brings about more crime and bad behavior, and we begin to develop a more common sense attitude about our actions will we have a country where these sort of things no longer are a problem.
