The Bluebird's Memory Nest

My friend, Erudessa, "pecked" me to join in this game she just made up. If you'd like to join head over to her blog and let her know :).

So the Rules:

Thank the person that 'pecked' you.

List five things that start with, 'When I grow up and have my own house...' (they can be true,'When I grow up and have my own house, I will learn to play the Violin'.....or utterly ridiculous,'When I grow up and have my own house, I will not let anyone visit me who leaves the plug for the shower head pulled so that the water hits you in the back of the head when you turn it on.')

'Peck' one other person and let them know that you have done so.

1. When I grow up and have a house of my own, I'll still say I'm going to do things when I grow up. :)

2. When I grow up and have a house of my own, I will have chocolate at every meal.

3. When I grow up and have a house of my own, I'll learn every language.

4. When I grow up and have a house of my own, I'll never spend money.

5. When I grow up and have a house of my own, I'll buy every Henty book.

And I "peck" Sarah.


  1. Haha not spending money? If it works.let me know lol jk!

    1. Lol, IKR? I'm still trying to figure out how to manage the not spending any money and get all the Henty books :D

  2. How on earth will you buy all the Henty book and still not spend any money? I think you may have to give up #4!

  3. Yeah what are you going to use to buy the books girl? Strawberries? ;)

    1. Naw, in not THAT dumb..I was thinking of using Bluebird's ;D

    2. Hahahahahaaa!!! Well I tagged you again!

  4. Lol, I'm a big fan of number 2. ;)

    And I totally think you can do 4 and 5 at the same time *nods* Obviously, you will barter for the Henty books with Hershey kisses or the meals at your house that always contain chocolate.

    BTW, I tagged you for another thing. Don't feel obligated to do it, obviously, but here is the tag if you want to. :)


    1. Oh, my Alexa, that is a brilliant idea!!!!!!!!!

      Thanks :)

  5. Buying all of the Henty That would be a lot! And maybe, since you don't want to spend any money you can "buy" them through a book exchange?

I love discussions, but nothing mean — I post a lot of opinionated articles, and I'd love to know YOUR opinions, even if they oppose mine. But, please, no insulting. Be nice and let's get to know one another ~ Keturah

Living Like The Amish: Interviews With Three "English" Families PART I

Many people are obsessed with the Amish.
I know at one time I was as well, and to a degree I still am.
But my perception  has changed with experience.

It started a long time ago when my family went to an Amish-held auction (no, it's not a place where you can buy Amish children, but a place where you can buy things from the Amish). I was eleven years old and enthralled to be surrounded by so many Amish. I loved the cockscomb flowers they sold everywhere. I bought a whole box for $2 and dried them for seeds so I could plant my own.
But then I experienced my first reality shock concerning the Amish.
I had assumed since they lived a simpler life everything about them was completely old-fashioned and natural.
Imagine my horror when I saw Amish walking around with soda cans and store-bought ice cream.

"Mom," I said. "He's drinking soda!" 

During my years living with the Amish I learned a lot about them. As individuals. As a culture. And about their history. Recently…

Inside The Land Of The Free

My name is Greg. 
I have a lot of time to think. Too much time. Sometimes I think about my life - why I am sitting in prison. I wonder what I could have done different - my life plays before my eyes.
"If only..."
But even I know that no amount of good works would have stopped tyranny from finding fault with me.
It is cold.
My clothes are thin.
My stomach is empty - occasionally filled with food of no sustenance. 
I hide my face in my knees - as if that will somehow protect me from the horrors of this dark cold dungeon. 
They keep it cold to freeze me, this I know.
It is a part of their game - to drive a lesson into me.
As if I have a lesson to learn solely because I was convicted.
Convicted, but not  guilty.
68 years for standing against injustice.
How many years have I sat in here?
I have forgot.
All I know is this question, "Was I fated for this? Did God grant my birth just so I could spend life as if dead?"
I cry out to God - does He hear me?
I do not know. I can no…

It Doesn't Take a Genius to Recognize Corruption

After attending the writer's conference I had the opportunity to spend a week with my dad in Las Vegas (we went to federal court trials).
I don't usually speak much of his work as I'm not sure all what to say about it. He keeps the public updated with what's happening in court, with all the many men locked up that he's trying to help out. I think he said there are like 19 guys right now that he is specifically trying to help release. 
{If any of you have heard of the Bundy Ranch Stand Off, you'll know a little of what he is doing}
I won't go into too much detail with his work. I will say if you want to know more of how to help out and learn what's going on just do some googling - my dad's name is John Lamb. You should be able to find plenty on him ;p
Anyways, I was quite shocked the first day.
Security didn't surprise me at all. Very much like an airport ;p  Except, most of the security was actually nicer ;) I was very pleased with security as far …

I'm Not Into Politics, But...

“Hey, did you hear what's happening with those guys in Oregon from Malheur Refuge?”
“No. Tell me about it!”
“A bunch of guys felt that their rights as US citizens were being violated, so they decided to take back a bit of land for the “people” as a sign to the federal government to back off, and now they are all facing years to life in prison for 'terrorism' and-” My words slow down as I see the person's face slowly becomes void of emotion. Bored? Or do they not like what I'm saying…? Have I just lost a friend? What did I say????

“Oh. Yeah.. I'm not really into politics.” They say.
“Oh, OK.” I say. But inside something feels wrong. Not into politics???
Hey, I hate politics. I despise them. So much stress, and fighting, and corruption. But… it's a part of life. Or is it???
What if I told you Fred's barn just burned down and we were going to go do some things to encourage him and help him out. Get some guys to rebuild it. Make him some meals. You, know, …
