Police Checkpoints: I’m Not Doing Anything Wrong, But I Definitely Have Something to Worry About


I Am Not Doing Anything Wrong But I Definitely Have Something to Worry About

By Daisy Luther – The Organic Prepper

Every year around this time, it just isn’t the holiday season if you don’t end up stuck in a long line of traffic going through a mandatory DUI checkpoint.  The cops are looking for people drinking and driving, and this unconstitutional search has been upheld by the Supreme Court.

And every year around this time, when I say it is a violation of my rights, someone chimes in:

“If you aren’t doing anything wrong, you don’t have anything to worry about.”

It’s entirely possible that if I hear this argument one more time this year, I’m going to have something to worry about, because there’s going to be the body in my trunk.

I was involved in a conversation on a thread online about these checkpoints and I was deeply saddened by the dozens of people who think having their rights violated is…

I wish I could help you all.

Let’s try and help each other!

The Grey Area

Everyday I see you.  On Social media, passing by while I eat lunch and even interacting with me on various levels.  Everyday I see a new reminder of somebody that feels like they are missing something, somebody, anything to fill that hole they feel.  They feel trapped, restrained or empty.  I get it, because I feel it too sometimes.  But what makes me sad is that you’re wandering, searching, and you don’t have the slightest idea for what.  You grasp at straws over and over thinking “Maybe this will fix it!”  “Maybe this will make me feel better!”  Sometimes it does.  But it’s usually only temporary.

2014-03-26-alone_man1440x9001When I read, see, hear or otherwise encounter you… it’s one of the few times I wish that I could say “I’m sorry.”  I’m arrogant enough to think I know what you need, and I believe that if in some cases you knew me…

Don’t #workout on an #empty #stomach

Staying Healthy

Rohidas Vitthal Sanap: Web Developer/Designer

Gym-goers and athletes tend to push themselves on empty stomachs in the belief they’ll burn up more fat.

Girl-stretching-jpgMost believe in the theory that exercising on an empty stomach will make the body use up fat reserves and covert it into energy instead of the glucose or carbohydrates that may be readily available from a meal or a drink before the workout. But while it seems to make sense, research now shows that exercising on an empty stomach doesn’t offer any benefit and may actually work against you.

According to a recent report published this year in a fitness journal in the US, it has been established that the body burns the same amount of fat irrespective of whether you eat before or after a workout. But the problem arises in the fact that dizzy spells notwithstanding, you will lose muscle by exercising in a state of hunger. The study…

Christmas Decorum & Decoration.



Christmas is right around the corner and by now everyone has started thinking about decoration ideas to set the ambience for the season.

My simple guidelines for the best Christmas Decorations are:

Pick a theme.

Nativity, Santa Claus,
Rudolf, Elf, North Pole,
White Christmas

are just some of the themes you can build your decorations around. This will also determine what your colour palette would look like.



Next, you may want to pick out key parts of the house to be your ‘Christmas Stops’ this is a phrase I have coined to mean:

“a part of the home  that has been decorated during Christmas that has striking themes that make members stop and think about Christmas”

This can also be where your photos and selfies get taken 😉

My suggestions include:
The Stairwell, The Fireplace, The Front Porch, The Backyard, The Door Posts and The Mail Box.
Feel free to…

SMILE anyways

Showing weakness is not being weak, it’s being honest.
Even then, SMILE!
Even when it hurts, and things seem out of control…
When anger is all you got to show and you feel like you just can’t deal with shit anymore…
Though your days may seem dreary, and nothing goes as planned, but deep down inside you know that God has got the perfect plan instead…
Keep smiling!
It does the heart good to smile, it gives you strength from a higher power.
Soo, even when your feeling down, broken at the bottom, all hollow,
Even when all others take you for granted or even speak badly of you,
One smile can go a long way,
You never know when others are also having a bad day.
Even though it may take much energy…
Sooner or later your heartache will fade away, and God’s shining light will illuminate the appropriate way.
Soo, no matter what people say,
No matter how bad things appear to be, even when you feel like going insane,
Show the gratitude and warmth in your heart and…
just -smile-
