Sailing Weather

Red Sky at night,

Sailors delight;
Red sky in the morning,
Sailors warning.

Best time to say,
What weather’s on the way,
Is at the start and end of day.

If rain begins at early morning light,
T’will end ere day at noon is bright.

If the evening is red and the morning grey,
It is the sign of a bonnie day;
If the evening’s grey and the morning red,
The lamb and ewe will go wet to bed.

If the sun goes pale to bed,
T’will rain tomorrow, so ’tis said.

The moon and weather may change together,
But change of the moon does not change the weather.

Never trust a clear blue sky,
Even if the glass points high.

A grey and featureless sky
May be a gloomy one,
But at least it’s dry.

Rainbow to windward, foul falls the day,
Rainbow to leeward, damp runs away.

If rainbow green is large and bright.
Rain is still somewhere in sight;
If red is strongest colour of all,
Then winds will blow, rains will fall.

Low’rin clouds, low’rin skies,
Stay indoors if you are wise.

Mackerel sky, mackerel sky,
Never long wet, never long dry.

A cap of sheet cloud high in the sky,
Forewarns the tears from heaven’s eye.

When clouds are gathering thick and fast,
Keep a lookout for snails and mast;
But if they slowly onward crawl,
Shoot your nets, line, trawls and all.

When the clouds spread like a feather,
Mariners look for fair, good weather.

When mountains and cliffs in the clouds appear,
Some sun and violent showers are near.

The deeper the cloud,
The harder it showers.

Humorous cumulus,
Never gloomerous.

Pale moon,
Rain soon.

Clear moon,
Rain soon.

When stars disappear,
Then rain and wind is near.

A nasty nature is the role of lows,
Rainy days and windy blows.

When the rain’s before the wind.
Topsail halliards you must mind;
If the wind’s before the rain,
Soon you will make plain sail again.

The winds of daytime wrestle and fight,
Longer and stronger than those of the night.

If the wind at sunrise drives the clouds away,
Fair weather is the order of the day.

At sea with a low and falling glass,
Soundly sleeps a careless ass.

Long foretold, long past,
Short notice, soon past.

When the glass falls low,
Prepare for a blow;
When the glass rises high,
Let the light duck fly.

At sea with a low and falling glass,
The green hand sleeps like a careless ass;
But only when it is high and rising,
Will slumber trouble a careful wise one.

When rise begins after low,
Squalls expect, and a clear blow.

First rise after very low,
Indicates a stronger blow.

When the wind is in the east,
Then the fishes bite the least;
When the wind is in the west,
Then the fishes bite the best;
When the wind comes in the north,
Then the fishes do come forth;
When the wind is in the south,
It blows the bait in the fishes mouth.

Pimpernel, pimpernel, tell me true,
Whether the weather be fine or no.

When bee’s to distance wing their fight,
Days are warm and skies are bright;
But when their flights ends near their home,
Stormy weather is sure to come.

Eric Ward – LinkMoses

The Day I Destroyed the Web

Editors Note: In Eric’s own words… of interest to us true believers – Joe

As hard as it may seem to believe now there actually was a time (not that long ago) when there was no such thing as the ‘Web Promotion’ industry.  On December 21, 1994, exactly twenty years ago this week, I started a company that went by the name of ‘NETpost’. I was based in Knoxville Tennessee (as I still am today) and as I went about the process of trying to publicize and promote my site, I visited the Yahoo Directory.

At the time there was no category for web promotion. I know that may seem hard to believe. Just so you know I’m telling the truth have a look at the below link

That the actual reply from (now billionaire) Jerry Yang from back when he was just a grad student and Yahoo was nothing more than his and David Filo’s hobby. A way for them to keep up with the websites that they liked and enjoyed visiting while they were working on their PhD.’s. Notice how Yahoo didn’t even have its own domain yet, and Jerry emailed me his reply from his Stanford account.

So, I guess depending on how you look at it I’m either to blame for all link spam, or I’m to be commended for recognizing the right way to go about publicizing web sites. I’ll leave it up to others to choose which :)

Editor’s Note: A LOT of great things happen on December 21, every year! – Joe

Editor’s PS – Thank you Eric Ward and you too, Tim Hamilton. Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated.


dōTERRA Dryer Sheets

Stop buying scented dryer sheets and make your own. Just add a few drops of your favorite oil fragrance (How about the Holiday Scent?) to a piece of clean cloth and put it into the dryer, together with your clothes.

A number of you have received a sample of these oils, try a couple of drops of each oil, on different loads, just to test the fragrance level of each bottle. Unlike other products that are ‘NOT of the Earth’, (dōTERRA is LATIN for; ‘Of the Earth’), there are no ‘harmful’ side effects, nor death, nor expense (actually pennies per drop), for these SPECIAL solutions.

Lotion Magic


Body Cream Recipe

(all measurements are by weight)

· Hard oils:

  • 2 ½ oz fractionated coconut oil
  • ½ oz cocoa butter

· Soft oils:

  • 4 oz fractionated coconut oil
  • 2 oz olive oil
  • 1 oz beeswax, grated
  • 9 oz distilled water
  • 12 – 45 drops dōTERRA essential oil

Place coconut oil in a 16-oz microwavable measuring cup. Add cocoa butter and beeswax. Put the cup containing the oil and beeswax into a pot partially filled with water, place over medium heat and stir with a chopstick or wooden fork until the oil and beeswax melt and dissolve, becoming one liquid.

Remove from heat and add fractionated coconut and olive oils. Allow to cool to body temperature. As it cools, the mixture will thicken and become opaque. Stir as it cools to keep the consistency smooth. If it cools too much, too soon, or you are interrupted during this process – simply reheat it.

While the oil mixture is cooling, warm the distilled water in another heat-proof measuring cup in the hot-water bath. Test for body temperature with a clean finger.

When the oil mixture and water have both reached body temperature, pour the water into a blender or mixing bowl (We use a mixing bowl and stick blender) and add optional water-soluble ingredients such as vitamin C. Process at high speed. If using a high-power blender such as a Vita Mixer, set it on low. Slowly add the oil mixture by pouring a thin drizzle into the whirling water. It will begin to sputter and thicken. Continue to process until the oil and water have blended together into a thick, creamy liquid. This may take 5-10 minutes in a blender or food processor. If using a high-power blender, it may take 20-30 seconds. It may take 15 minutes with a stick blender. This process, called emulsification, is the secret to making creams.

Scoop the cream into a 32-oz measuring cup with a spout for easy pouring. If you are adding essential oils, do it at this point, making sure to stir them in well. Pour the cream into sanitized, dry jars. Filling them to the top and leaving as little airspace as possible. Cap with tight-fitting lids and let sit overnight to allow the “flavors” to blend. Use a clean popsicle stick to dip out your cream if it is in a wide-mouth container. This will help prevent introduction of bacteria and spoilage.


  • It is very easy to make changes to these recipes. Constants remain when the amount of hard oil (solid when cool) totals 4 oz and soft oil (liquid) totals 6 oz, you can substitute and changes oils to make creams for different purposes. In all the perturbations encountered, remember to have fun and even use all of your mistakes!

Using Other Ingredients

  • Optional ingredients include PABA for sun protection, MSM for cellular hydration and repair, and use citrus based dōTERRA essential oils (Wild Orange, Lime etc.) to act as preservatives due to their antimicrobial properties.


is a separation process in which a certain quantity of a mixture (gas, solid, liquid, suspension or isotope) is divided during a phase transition, into a number of smaller quantities (fractions) in which the composition varies according to a gradient.

Ben’s Whistles

The Whistle

by Benjamin Franklin To Madame Brillon

Do not let the age of this letter fool you. It is timely advice should be REQUIRED reading to young people (anyone under 89 years of age), no matter where you reside. – Editors Note.

I received my dear friend’s two letters, one for Wednesday and one for Saturday. This is again Wednesday. I do not deserve one for to-day, because I have not answered the former. But, indolent as I am, and averse to writing, the fear of having no more of your pleasing epistles, if I do not contribute to the correspondence, obliges me to take up my pen; and as Mr. B. has kindly sent me word that he sets out to-morrow to see you, instead of spending this Wednesday evening, as I have done its namesakes, in your delightful company, I sit down to spend it in thinking of you, in writing to you, and in reading over and over again your letters.

I am charmed with your description of Paradise, and with your plan of living there; and I approve much of your conclusion, that, in the meantime, we should draw all the good we can from this world. In my opinion we might all draw more good from it than we do, and suffer less evil, if we would take care not to give too much for whistles. For to me it seems that most of the unhappy people we meet with are become so by neglect of that caution.

You ask what I mean? You love stories, and will excuse my telling one of myself.

When I was a child of seven years old, my friends, on a holiday, filled my pocket with halfpence. I went directly to a shop where they sold toys for children; and being charmed with the sound of a whistle, that I met by the way in the hands of another boy, I voluntarily offered and gave all my money for one.

I then came home, and went whistling all over the house, much pleased with my whistle, but disturbing all the family.

This last paragraph is the one most modified,  before the 1890’s, This letter  said, “…pocket full of coppers…”.  above.  Since all changes since the 1890’s point to Woodrow Wilson supporters apparently changing the 18th century units of measure, trying to make Richard Saunder’s, “A penny saved is two pence dear.” into the progressive gibberish, “A penny saved is a penny earned.” – Editor’s Note

My brothers, and sisters, and cousins, understanding the bargain I had made, told me I had given four times as much for it as it was worth; put me in mind what good things I might have bought with the rest of the money; and laughed at me so much for my folly, that I cried with vexation; and the reflection gave me more chagrin than the whistle gave me pleasure.

This, however, was afterwards of use to me, the impression continuing on my mind; so that often, when I was tempted to buy some unnecessary thing, I said to myself, Don’t give too much for the whistle; and I saved my money.

As I grew up, came into the world, and observed the actions of men, I thought I met with many, very many, who gave too much for the whistle.

When I saw one too ambitious of court favor, sacrificing his time in attendance on levees, his repose, his liberty, his virtue, and perhaps his friends, to attain it, I have said to myself, this man gives too much for his whistle.

When I saw another fond of popularity, constantly employing himself in political bustles, neglecting his own affairs, and ruining them by that neglect, “He pays, indeed,” said I, “too much for his whistle.”

If I knew a miser, who gave up every kind of comfortable living, all the pleasure of doing good to others, all the esteem of his fellow-citizens, and the joys of benevolent friendship, for the sake of accumulating wealth, “Poor man,” said I, “you pay too much for your whistle.”

When I met with a man of pleasure, sacrificing every laudable improvement of the mind, or of his fortune, to mere corporeal sensations, and ruining his health in their pursuit, “Mistaken man,” said I, “you are providing pain for yourself, instead of pleasure; you give too much for your whistle.”

If I see one fond of appearance, or fine clothes, fine houses, fine furniture, fine equipages, all above his fortune, for which he contracts debts, and ends his career in a prison, “Alas!” say I, “he has paid dear, very dear, for his whistle.”

When I see a beautiful sweet-tempered girl married to an ill-natured brute of a husband, “What a pity,” say I, “that she should pay so much for a whistle!”

In short, I conceive that great part of the miseries of mankind are brought upon them by the false estimates they have made of the value of things, and by their giving too much for their whistles. Yet I ought to have charity for these unhappy people, when I consider that, with all this wisdom of which I am boasting, there are certain things in the world so tempting, for example, the apples of King John, which happily are not to be bought; for if they were put to sale by auction, I might very easily be led to ruin myself in the purchase, and find that I had once more given too much for the whistle.

The apples of King John ( perhaps St. John) were harvested in May (St. John’s birthday) and kept in special wraps to produce a very special treat, consumed and enjoyed, after a period of two years. – Editors Note

Adieu, my dear friend, and believe me ever yours very sincerely and with unalterable affection.
