Synergy

Synergy means the interaction of two (or more) things that produce an overall effect that’s greater than – or different from – the sum of the individual effects. In other words, we cannot predict the whole simply by looking at the parts.   Even so, we are challenged to understand and predict the impacts that contaminants have on communities – when understanding the effect of a single contaminant on a single organism is daunting. There are almost unlimited variables that impact any situation.

angryturkeyvultureI sometimes question why I read my horoscope. In truth, I forget what I’ve read a few minutes later. Today’s though stood out. I read two different ones and both talked about anger, temper, resentment. I also watched an episode of Kitchen Nightmares. A family spent a whole lot of time angry with tempers flaring and a whole lot of resentment stewing. Later in the show one of the owners actually told the others that she was proud of them. What a difference. The way they interacted changed significantly. Until of course, some of them slipped back into to their critical ways.

For the few moments, on the show when they all worked as a perfect team — one wonders why with that level of peace would they ever revert back to the yelling and anger? I have in the last few years had some hard lessons in how…

JULY 24,’14 I NEED AN ORAL SURGEON’S APPOINTMENT– & PRAYERS!!

JULY 24,’14  I NEED AN ORAL SURGEON’S APPOINTMENT– & PRAYERS!!

OK– MY MCS SISTERS & FOLLOWERS— I NEED YOUR HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LAST NIGHT I WAS EATING & I LOST ANOTHER CAP OFF OF A TOOTH– AND I HAD A ROOT CANAL DONE ON THIS TOOTH YEARS AGO– & I KNOW THIS TOOTH HAS BEEN PUMPING POISON INTO MY SYSTEM FOR A LONG TIME— WHICH I’LL GET ON MY SOAP BOX ABOUT LATER AT ANOTHER TIME—-

BUT HERE –IS WHERE I NEED YOUR HELP—-

THERE IS AN ORAL SURGEON WHO COMES TO  HERE IN BRANSON  TO AN OFFICE SO MANY TIMES A MONTH– HIS NAME IS DR. J DAVID GIPSON & HIS NEXT TIME TO COME TO BRANSON IS NEXT THURS.. THE DATE IS JULY  31, ’14 & HE IS FULL—–NO TIME FOR ME—-

THE NEXT TIME ANY ORAL SURGEON CAN SEE ME TO WORK ON ME IS AUG 12TH & THAT IS DR. MEYER!!!!  ( AND I DON’T KNOW HIM)

I HAVE BEEN TO THIS OFFICE TWICE & BOTH TIMES I SAW DR. J. DAVID GIPSON!!!

http://sondasmcschatter.wordpress.com/2013/04/05/oral-surgeon-appointment/

http://sondasmcschatter.wordpress.com/2013/05/01/all-is-well-the-tooth-is-gone/

NOW I WOULD LIKE TO ASK ALL OF YOU TO PRAY OR THINK POSITIVE THOUGHTS –IF YA DON’T PRAY— THAT AN OPENING SHOWS UP FOR NEXT THURS. AUG 31, ’14 WITH DR J. DAVID GIPSON– TO BE ABLE TO WORK ON PULLING OUT THE REST OF THIS ROOT CANAL—

I NEVER EVER TAKE ANY DRUGS– NOT EVEN AN ASPIRIN– ALL I TAKE IS ALL NATURAL SUPPLEMENTS—  BUT IN ORDER TO GET THE TOOTH PULLED THEY HAVE TO GIVE ME THE SMALLEST AMOUNT OF DRUG POSSIBLE TO PULL IT!!!!

THEN MY BODY TAKES A NOSE DIVE FROM THE CHEMICAL DRUG– & WHAT I HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO!!!

I’M GOING TO ASK THAT YOU PLEASE PRAY GOD’S WILL– & IF IT BE GOD’S WILL THERE WILL BE AN OPENING NEXT THURS WITH DR. GIPSON HERE IN HIS BRANSON OFFICE!!!

I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT SET FOR THE NEXT OPENING WHICH IS AUG. 12TH  WITH DR. MEYER –WHICH WHICH I DON’T KNOW HIM AT ALL— ONLY IN THE SAME OFFICE & HE COMES TO BRANSON SO MANY TIMES A MONTH!!!

IF I HAD OVERS— I WOULD NEVER EVER EVER EVER HAD ROOT CANALS DONE– NOW THAT I AM EDUCATED ABOUT ROOT CANALS– & NONE OF IT IS GOOD ABOUT A ROOT CANAL!!!!

BUT I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT THIS TOOTH– HAS BEEN PUMPING POISON INTO MY SYSTEM FOR SOME TIME!!! IT WILL BE A BLESSING FOR IT TO BE GONE & HEALED FROM BEING REMOVED & THE CHEMICAL DRUG THEY HAVE TO GIVE ME TO REMOVE IT WILL BE OUT OF MY SYSTEM!!!!

BUT JUST LEAVING MY MCS SAFE HOME– AND BEING EXPOSED TO EVERYTHING I CAN BE EXPOSED TO— LAST VISIT I WAS SUPPOSE TO BE THE FIRST PERSON FOR AN APPOINTMENT– & THERE WERE OTHERS IN THE WAITING ROOM MARINATED IN PERFUME– SO I WAS EXPOSED WHEN WE WENT IN– & SO WE WENT BACK OUT SIDE   & I WAITED IN THE CAR– UNTIL THEY WERE READY FOR ME– BUT I WAS ALREADY EXPOSED TO THE PERFUME– & WAS HAVING EFFECTS OF THE PERFUME— NEVER A GOOD START!!!!!!!!!!!

I REALLY NEED THIS TOOTH PULLED– WHAT IS LEFT OF THE ROOT CANAL– GET THE POISON OUT OF MY SYSTEM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE—& I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO GO TO DR. J. DAVID GIPSON– WHO I HAVE BEEN TO TWICE BEFORE– HE SEEMED TO UNDERSTAND– & I LIVED THROUGH THE EXPERIENCES!!!

AND I HOPE THEY DON’T HAVE TO TAKE  FULL MOUTH EX-RAYS AGAIN— I WON’T GET ON MY SOAP BOX ABOUT EX-RAYS AGAIN— BUT NOT GOOD EITHER!!!!

SO— I WANT GOD’S WILL TO BE DONE– & IF IT IS GOD’S WILL— NEXT THURS. JULY 31ST  TO SEE DR. GIPSON– I NEED A CANCELLATION FOR NEXT THURS– & THEM TO WORK ME IN— OTHER WISE IT IS AUG 12TH WITH A DR. I DON’T KNOW– & DON’T KNOW IF HE KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT MCS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AS WE ALL KNOW NOT MANY DO KNOW ABOUT MCS– OR EVEN CARE!!!!!!!!!!!!

LIFE IS HARD EACH DAY DEALING WITH MCS– LIVING IN OUR  MCS SAFE HOMES & TRYING TO STAY WAY FROM BEING POISONED BY TOXIC KILLING CHEMICALS!!!!!!!

THEN — WHEN WE NEED TO HAVE A TOOTH PULLED– OR OTHER TYPE OF SERVICES– DONE TO OUR BODIES— IT IS EXTREMELY HARD—– OUR BODIES GET A REAL WORK OUT & NOT IN A GOOD WAY—- AND WE ALL NEVER KNOW HOW OUR SYSTEM WILL REACT– & IF IT EVER TOTALLY RECOVERS!!

SO EVERYONE– I NEED YOUR HELP– & NEED YOUR PRAYERS– & IF YA ARE NOT A BELIEVER OF MY LORD- JESUS CHRIST— PLEASE THINK POSITIVE THOUGHTS FOR ME!!!!!

NOW THANKS FOR THE PRAYERS— THANKS FOR THE POSITIVE THOUGHTS– & THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT–  & THANKS FOR READING MY BLOG– & THANKS THAT YOU ARE THERE– THAT I CAN COME TO YA & ASK!!!!!!!!!!!!

OH– MY I’LL BE GLAD WHEN THIS IS ALL OVER & I AM BACK TO AS WELL AS POSSIBLE— AND DANCING—–    :)

THANK YOU JESUS & THANK YOU FATHER GOD –THAT WE CAN COME TO YOU WITH OUR REQUESTS & YOU UNDERSTAND & YOU KNOW MORE ABOUT MCS– THEN ANYONE ELSE— PLEASE GIVE ME THE HELP I NEED– & YOU UNDERSTAND THE HELP THAT I NEED– AND PLEASE BE WITH ALL OF MY MCS SISTERS & MEET ALL OF THEIR NEEDS THAT ONLY YOU CAN KNOW  & I ASK IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST!!! 

THANKS EVERYONE—- I DON’T BELIEVE IN LUCK— I BELIEVE IN DIVINE INTERVENTION!!!!

Why Is Your Favorite Color Your Favorite Color?

This certainly is interesting———-

Originally posted on Outside The Lines:

Psychology of Color - Segmation Digital Art GameYou probably have a favorite color, but chances are you rarely stop to think about why you are drawn to this particular hue.

For years, psychologists have been claiming that people are drawn to choice shades for particular reasons. This means that, whether you know it or not, there is good reason why your favorite color is your favorite color.

What is Your Favorite Color?

It is likely that your preference stems from personal tastes and the culture that surrounds you. After all, we develop color affinities at young ages. For instance, to make conversation with a child, it is common to ask, “What is your favorite color?” Therefore, it makes sense to think that these hues have an influence on our personalities as we age too. According to some psychologists and color experts, our favorite colors reflect parts of our personalities, but how?
