JUNE 1st Starts THE SEASON ™

I dread having to face this again
HOWEVER......
As in the past this little pyrates deck
is dedicated to PROTECTING those with
special needs during cane season.
I made a promise and a promise I keep.

Please dont be lulled into this thinking:
We won't get hit for another 25 years
The NHC can't even predict that.
Its lazy thinking.And Mother Nature
will think for you.


I saw firsthand at the George R. Brown
the last minute panic by our city
to open a shelter to protect our
most vulnerable.

I heard stories of shelters
turning away people with special needs


Over and over again I heard:
, "I didnt know where
to go" or "I didn't think it would
be this bad." or "No one told me...."

Thats being a victim.

Because YOU have a disability and
NEED sheltering you have the RIGHT
to DEMAND protection.

Call the local emergency management
and ASK: What plans do you have?

Call your disability organization
and ASK: Did you get information from
the local emegency management on where
we go? How we register?

MAKE THEM ACCOUNTABLE
MAKE YOURSELF EDUCATED.


Dont wait for the city to come save ya
they won't. SAVE YOURSELF OR SOMEONE
YOU KNOW WHO NEEDS TO SHELTER
.


SO.... here we are again. How many times
have I said:

If you are a person with a disability
and need to shelter please register
TODAY....

Well TODAY is HERE.

PLEASE dont be a victim.
Because then you can become a statistic


Because you are person with disability
doesn't mean
you don't have a voice,
OR DONT HAVE THE RIGHT
to ask,
DEMAND,
register
and BE SAFE.


Pass this along - and keep passing
this along. FROM COAST TO COAST
YOU NEED TO BE ONE VOICED


I will give all information now
on the deck and then it will be
linked on this side of this blog.

I will always update and inform
YOU will always be vigilant.


Please also visit other blogs
that educate during cane season:

Patrap - Hurricane Preparedness
Sandcrab - Emergency Management Information
Vortfix - Severe Weather



CALL AND REGISTER
CALL AND EDUCATE YOURSELF
AND OTHERS



FROM KEHCHARLESTON:


) Medications and Medical Supplies and Equipment, must be part of your hurricane planning - and where possible on your hurricane shelf. This means, during hurricane season, you keep your oxygen delivery systems topped off. (Helps if you know where you plan to evacuate. You can have the phone numbers of physicians, medical suppliers etc. ready. And consider having your personal physician recommend a physician for the place you will bug out. (Communication between physicians ahead of time, would save time later if you need prescriptions etc.)

2) Evacuating the frail or those with medical equipment needs, is slow work - and may be necessary on a voluntary basis. Plan well and early. Besides the fact that the evacuation itself might take a longer time. - keep in mind that there are good reasons for you to get a move on it when an voluntary evacuation is called (if not before). An advancing weather system can have an effect on you physically, increasing your health, symptoms. (Drop in barometric pressure, increased humidity etc). Even during a tropical storm/low level hurricane - a trip to the emergency room could be difficult/impossible.

O my friends what a delightful afternoon
I spent - ALL CREDIT GOES to the choreographer
Miss Kathleen - who turned my darling ones
into dancers supreme - the joy of seeing
Marquia dance and the others with disabilities
FLY thru this space with such ease and
poise and GRACE - the able bodied are just
as beautiful

All glory goes to our ANGELS above who
watch over us little pirates ....my goodness
I am in love with the theater again....


SURF - YES she lives IN the moment not
by it or steals a minute here or there
she will teach the magic of BEING....
take this sadness and turn it into
LEARNING.....I wish I could sail with you
wouldn't it be a MAGICAL MOMENT?????

Emmy..yes, the weather is good and has been
since the last snow..when was that? 2 weeks
ago? Well, tomorrow and the next day are
forecast 90 ..so..our Spring weather was a
whole 2 weeks..now we get hot and stay hot
til our version of Fall. Drat..was hoping for
a longer Spring. Maybe we'll get a few more
pleasant days sprinkled in with the hot ones.
I hope!

EmmyRose -- surf away w/ me honey, ......paddle away w/me Pyrate Queen...... I take you everywhere I go --run, surf, ride the horse....

tis a gift one receives, when one opens the door to kindred spirits --allowing their souls a voice and wings to fly free as Pyrate.
For we are one, and we are connected. (that includes you too Kat, WP & all the many others here... if it resonates with you -- you got the connection and you get the GOOD STUFF!!!)

Did all my work, snaked a parking spot, grabbed the board and ran to my Sandbar.... and by the gifts of the Zephyr wind and King Neptune....( & with Help from Pottery throwing rocks off cliff in Tobago) there were these istsy bisty, yet ridable waves...... nothing great, but enough to re calibrate the body, mind and let some steam out of the pressure cooker.

Got MIL Alzheimer time - so I'm off for a while.... the best part of Alzheimer's -- you live in the moment and you don't remember anything bad.... going to fill her tank up with love.....

Hi, EMMY. We are blessed in Colorado this
week..one gorgeous day after another. In
fact, it's as close to "perfect" weather as
you can get. All windows open..all three cats have found a sill..Bud out in the yard, pruning trees, with three happy dogs playing
and following him around. Nice day!! :-)
I hope your day is wonderful as well!

I'm listening to Sea Dreamer as I write
to say Good Night..lovely, indeed, but I am
a major Sting fan...between this song and
the one before, Sail Away with Me, I am so
craving a visit to an ocean..I don't have to sail..just see the sea, feel sand between my
toes and listen to the sweet sound of the
waves on the beach. mmmmmm Sea dreams for
me tonight for sure. I hope you have lovely
sea dreams, as well. :-)

your much needed rain - i'm tired of
these saturday potential sit in a closet days LOL



We're starting to get our share and praying it keeps coming. We've had 40%-50% chances of rain everyday and it has actually rained each day. Granted it's not a lot but it's something. Thankfully none of the storms has been as bad as what you've been getting.

Its Not Just For Canes Anymore
but SPAM AS COMFORT FOOD?????


Hot in recession: Chocolate, running shoes, Spam
By DEB RIECHMANN, AP
4 hours ago



WASHINGTON %u2014 It's not all doom and gloom in the U.S. economy. Some products are bucking the recession and flying off store shelves.

Sales of chocolate and running shoes are up. Wine drinkers haven't stopped sipping; they just seem to be choosing cheaper vintages.

Gold coins are selling like hot cakes. So are gardening seeds. Tanning products are piling up in shopping carts; maybe more people are finding color in a bottle than from sun-worshipping on a faraway beach.

Strong sales of Spam, Dinty Moore stew and chili helped Hormel Foods Corp. post a 6 percent increase in first quarter sales in its grocery products unit.

Consumers have trimmed household budgets and postponed buying cars, major appliances and other big-ticket items. Yet they still are willing to shell out for small indulgences and goods that make life more comfortable at home, where they are spending more time.

Recession shoppers also are drawn to items that make them feel safe, both personally and financially.

"The focus on the family hearth is something that has happened in nearly every recession. It's, `How can I have more fun at home?'" said Paco Underhill, whose company, Envirosell, monitors the behavior of shoppers and sellers across the U.S. and in other countries.

"People are much more focused on their homes and their immediate happiness and they're buying things that they can use themselves %u2014 seeds, fishing equipment. Lipstick and chocolate are small rewards that make you feel better."

Profits in the first three months of 2009 at Hershey Co., the nation's second-largest candy maker, surged 20 percent and beat Wall Street's expectations. Kraft Foods Inc. reported double-digit growth in macaroni and cheese dinners %u2014 the consummate comfort food.
