Lorraine,Thank you for writing this. (It is the first blog post of yours that I am raideng.) Your personal examination of dreaming is comforting and encouraging to me. Why must you, I, or others be ashamed of experiences that communicate the unconscious whether it be in a waking state or in sleep? I feel more accepting of my episodes because as you nicely put it, Besides, these dreams do not belong to me. I didn’t ask to experience them, nor am I capable of making them up. I find this statement to be so true.As well, I really appreciate how you explained the following: They have convinced me that some dreams, perhaps all dreams, are gifts from some universal source, what I call the Great Cosmic Oneness of Being. And they belong, as many indigenous people believe, to the tribe. In other words, these dreams are too big for me to keep hidden. Though they may have come through me, the wisdom teachings in them are not for me alone. My experiences with the psyche happen to me as an individual. But, you enlighten me to not imagine them as strictly personal.Lena

Dancing Creek Farm is a wonderful place to board a dog when you have to be away. Tamara trates our English Setter, Sadie, the same way she trates her own dogs, and we can go out of town with full confidence that Sadie is being cared for the same way we care for her.Until we found Tamara we boarded Sadie at the vet’s. After the first time boarding her with the vet, not only did she not want to go back when we left town, she still has trouble getting herself out of the car when we have to go to get check-ups and shots. The people at the vet are excellent and the boarding is acceptable, but with the choice of leaving her there, where she stays most of the time in a crate or leaving her with Tamara where she can run with other dogs and enjoy the air-conditioned dog house (with TV and futon), there is no question which we choose.We call the kennel “doggie camp,” and Sadie gets all excited when we head up the road to Tamara’s house. And when she sees Tamara, it is all we can do to hold her on the leash. This is truly a wonderful place to board dogs at the same rate our vet charges. Tamara’s love for animals and her concern for the welfare of her boarders is wonderful. It’s a great facility run by a great animal lover. We greatly appreciate the services she offers.

Where do we begin , just the fact that Casper and Bullet were allowed to roam wiuohtt being locked in a cage for 12 hours a day was worth the money right there, also knowing they were actually being looked after ,walked and allowed to adjust to their new surroundings was wonderful We will definitely use Dancing Creek again, knowing that Casper,Bullet and our family will all have a stress free vacation

I dropped Sparky off at anetohr boarding facility. When I picked him up they had him in a kennel outside with no air conditioning. He's an indoor dog and not use to the heat. It was august and 90 degrees outside! Never again.I've taken Sparky to the farm three times now and each time he jumps up and down as soon as we turn down the drive. He loves it there and it's such a wonderful place. It's has air conditioning, hammocks for the dogs and there were even little swimming pools. You can tell Tamara really loves animals and they love her too. Sparky runs right up to her which is something he rarely does. I'm happy I found this place and thrilled to leave a comment.

think of it from a marketing point of view, do you have half a molilin subscribers on YouTube?they give you a key it gets one person (who was already going to buy the game) into the game, they give it to Husky they get thousands of people into the game, thereby increasing sales. (using you as an example but that is a general statement to everyone)and yes I did that from Total Biscuit

(August 18th, 2009)

Best of luck lads. Naturally I'm jealous of this part of your journey, although the whole experience was enviable. When you get to Vancouver there is a hostel there called 'The Cambie' that I stayed in. I don't recommend it, one of the worst I've ever been in, and I've been in some sh*DFDJ holes. Knowing both you lads you've probably hooked up with some poor smucks who are willing to give you lodgings and some tasty meals, so hosteling is probably furthest from your cunning minds. The Canadians are great people, Peadar be nice. Ste, even better tash than last time. Inglorious B*$^$*%)$. Check it out. Be safe. Mark.

(August 29th, 2009)

Joe, It aint an easy decision, Im torn about it and looking at all options.. but I cannot afford to ship it home and cannot afford to do much really. So Its time to bite the reality bullet and focus on the bank balance, your can only ignore the elephant in the room for so long ; )

From: joe the celt

(August 29th, 2009)

Stephen and Peadar, look lads you have done an amazing and inspiratonal adventure, infact you both are legends... please look into the cost of shipping the moto's back to Ireland... lads i know it's hard but believe me "those moto's" are now part of Irish history. I will bang up €100 to help you ship the moto's back, email me a contact number and i'll drop the cash down. much respect joe

Hi guys - September already! We just wanted to say that we would have liked to be able to help you out with getting your bike back at the same time as our camper - but it is just too full of our own stuff! Instead we will donate £50 to the cause and maybe some of your followers will do the same -so hang in there and wait and see what happens! Cheers, Phil & Sharon

Sadly Joe, because of US licensing and import laws the bikes are likely to be broken up for spares or used off road as farm hacks.

From: Stephen
