"Breaking News: Huge Japan Earthquakes (Prelim. 7.4 & 5.6) Just Now, Lunar Eclipse Last Night & California Flooded" By Reverend Barbara Sexton

 
http://www.iris.edu/seismon/
Dear Ones:
     It must be 'Christmas', with never a dull moment.  Last night the world was treated to a lunar eclipse--a wondrous sight to behold for those who saw it 'live' and/or recorded this morning.
     The 'breaking news' is that Japan has just suffered a major earthquake this past hour.  And we hear that California is suffering from unprecedented precipitation.
     According to the USGS LINK: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/, the data for the Japan quake are as follows:
Update time = Tue Dec 21 18:16:37 UTC 2010
      MAG/ UTC DATE-TIME  y/m/d h:m:s/ LA deg /LON deg/ DEPTH km/ Region
MAP 5.6 2010/12/21 17:40:48 27.018 143.214  10.0  BONIN ISLANDS,JAPAN REGION
MAP 7.4 2010/12/21 17:19:41 26.866 143.739  14.9 BONIN ISLANDS,JAPAN REGION
     Please pray right now for all persons being affected by such tumult. 
     And for information on how to 'monitor' earthquake activity in all areas of the world, check out my 'Tutorials', below.
God Bless & Keep You and Yours Safe at this time!

"Our Day Laborers Are Here & They Need Us Conservatives To Help Them Survive This Winter" By Reverend Barbara Sexton

Happy Holidays Comments Christmas
http://www.free-foto-animation-digital-images.blogspot.com/
Dear Ones:
     I know that this Christmas Season is fraught with many considerations for all of us.
     We've financial considerations, health considerations, time constraints, travel concerns and more.
     We're busy with Christmas, with celebrating Hanukkah, with the Winter Solstice, Kwanzaa and even with 'Festivus'.
     Originally a 'joke holiday' of Seinfeld origin, Festivus is a 'silly-yet-appealing concept' which both the 'religious' and 'non-religious' like to joke about.
     As 'Wikipedia' says, "Celebrants of the holiday sometimes refer to it as "Festivus for the rest of us...". LINK: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Festivus  I pose this here in deference to my atheist and agnostic friends, having been one myself for the first 37 years of my life.
     I pray you'll bear with me in mentioning all of this.
     Whoever you are, my message is for you, whatever your religious, political, socio-economic, cultural or ethnic 'preference'.  It does not matter what your age is or, for that matter, what you do for a living or where you live.
     What I want to say is this:  We have literally STARVING and FREEZING DAY LABORERS in Stamford, CT.  You know where they are-under I-95 at the 'pick-up spots' that we have become familiar with.
     No matter what your stance on 'immigration' is, these fellows are willing to work...a trait which sets them apart from many others.
     Not surprisingly, many of these men are in need of many things.  I ask you in the name of Christian Compassion--even those of you who are Jewish or of other religious persuasion or even of no religious persuasion at all--to have mercy and help such as these.
     These workers are here now.
     Please donate your unneeded SIZE LARGE and MEDIUM WINTER COATS and other items.  It's an easy thing for you to do, as easy as going through your closets.
     Having a man freeze to death will do nothing to further the cause of 'just' immigration reform.  And it doesn't say much of us as Americans. 
     It is cruel to pretend to be a 'sentient peoples' while we ignore basic human needs.
     I'm not asking you to put your political convictions aside.  I am not asking you to be a 'patsy' for the progressive-lib Dems whom I've railed on for lo these many months since before the 2010 Mid-Term elections.  We exist as minority conservatives in a very liberal state.
     But I am asking you to cull out/wash/clean your winter outerwear and drop them off at St. Mary's Church on Elm Street Friday Dec. 17, 2010 after 8:30 p.m.--if you are able.
     I'm sure anything you can drop off at any time will be equally appreciated, if you can't make it by Friday.  Just call LUCAS ROMERO at 203-820-6874.
     Things needed are:
--large and medium winter coats
--gloves
--hats
--scarves
LINK: http://blog.stamfordadvocate.com/stamford411/2010/12/15/a-chance-to-lend-a-helping-hand/
     Stamford Partnership, CRISOL, and QUETZAL Group LINK: http://www.stamfordpartnership.com/current.html as well as the church will distribute these items at St. Mary's Church Saturday Dec. 18, 2010 from 8:30 a.m. to noon.
     Coats are not 'Amnesty' or a capitulation to the radical left.  They are simply a conduit to human compassion to decently deal with the immigration situation as it is today.  So in the name of Christ, I ask you to clean out your closets.
     A day will come when believers will be asked, "Did you not know that Jesus was a homeless man?"
     Your answer will be 'Yes',  I pray.
Thank you and God Bless you,
Reverend Barbara Sexton

"The Wisdom Of The Animals" By Reverend Barbara Sexton, Dear Ones Healing Ministry

A Nativity Scene was erected in a church yard.

During the night the folks came across this scene.

An abandoned dog was looking for a comfortable, protected place to sleep.

He chose baby Jesus as his comfort.
No one had the heart to send him away so he was there all night.


We should all have the good sense of this dog and curl up in Jesus' lap from time to time.

This is too sweet not to share.  No one mentioned that the dog breed is a "shepherd!"
Please remember our animal friends this Christmas & always

"Please Pray With Me For Stamford Police Officer Richard Gasparino" By Reverend Barbara Sexton

Dear Ones
     Please pray with me right now for Stamford Police Officer Richard Gasparino, callously shot in the face on Thursday Dec. 10, 2010.
LINK: http://www.greenwichcitizen.com/news/article/Stamford-felon-charged-with-shooting-police-873104.php

LET US PRAY

Dear Lord God: 

We come to you this day to ask for your Special Intervention.

We pray that you will spare the life and health of your child Police Officer Richard Gasparino and restore him to complete wellness and back into the arms of his loving family and friends.

Please instill in P.O. Gasparino a 'fullness of spirit' that allows him to not only recover from the physical and psychic wounds he has received in the line of duty...but that he be ever stronger, able and more determined than even before this event.

Give his family, friends and colleagues courage and fortitude and sustain them at this time and always, we ask you dear Father in Heaven...and give them great HOPE, especially during this holiday season.

May our fears evaporate and may our indignation be placated by your righteous Judgment--that those who are guilty be appropriately punished, even as we pray for their repentance and rejuvenation...if that be possible.

Blessed are we who walk with you, Lord.  And so we glorify your Name as we ask all good people to step forth in the name of Truth in order to help at this time.

We do pray these things in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit

AMEN

"A Christmas 'Laugh' For Today" Posted By Reverend Barbara Sexton 'The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"

From 'e-mail.
We ALL need a little laugh once in a while...
(Thanks Uncle Charlie for sending this along!)
    When four of Santa's elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce toys as fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the Pre-Christmas pressure.
     Then Mrs. Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which stressed Santa even more.
     When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out, Heaven knows where.
     Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked, the toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered.
     Frustrated, Santa went in the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered the elves had drunk all the cider and hidden the liquor.. In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider jug, and it broke into hundreds of little glass pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found the mice had eaten all the straw off the end of the broom.
     Just then the doorbell rang, and an irritated Santa marched to the door, yanked it open, and there stood a little angel with a great big Christmas tree.
The angel said very cheerfully, 'Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't this a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?'
     And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.
    
     Not a lot of people know this.
***********************************
Even in the 'best and worst' of the holiday season, let us all remember to keep our senses of humor and be able to put things into perspective.  This I pray for YOU, dear ones!

"Today Dec 1 Is World AIDS DAY: A Reflective Lesson" By Reverend Barbara Sexton "The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"

Dear Ones:
     You may have 'heard me' say this before; "If HIV AIDS were easily transmissible, I would be dead by  now". 
     I say it because it's true.
     I was 'in' biomedicine in the years immediately preceding the full 'out-cropping' of this horrific disease, during which time I literally handled and processed as many as twenty liters at a time of pooled human blood serum for 'cell culture' at Sloan-Kettering.
    We all knew what we were exposing ourselves to potentially and we all knew what the risks were.
     Prior to the full-emergence of 'AIDS', our main concerns in the lab were the usual blood-borne infectious agents such as hepatitis, reasonably well-understood and accepted 'risks'
     My technique was always excellent, but one can never discount the occasional bad-luck, unavoidable 'accident', such as a slip or spill or 'needle stick'. 
     Thank God I never suffered one of those, although in those late-70's/early 80's years I didn't do much praying (or any) for I was yet a proud atheist-agnostic back then.
     Coincidentally, a few years later, AIDS as a 'community concern' was just rearing it's head where I was living in Stamford, CT and a 'new Christian'.
     You can believe that few 'knew' about AIDS and HIV in those days and even 'fewer' cared about it, if they did.  And NO ONE wanted to 'work' with HIV+ patients if they could avoid it.
     But my universe was working with homeless individuals, female prostitutes, male prostitutes and many i.v. drug users. 
      So there was no escaping anything related to that emerging terror known as 'AIDS'.
     In my capacity first as a 'secretary' and then as a Soldier in The Salvation Army...I was there on the front lines. 
     I didn't want to be and I didn't ask to be, but I was immersed up-to-my-eyeballs when 'AIDS' first reared it's head in our area.
     I was there when the first few clinic patients walked into my office for a counseling session, test results in hand and 'collapsed' in grief, misery, fear and disbelief. 
     These poor souls were amongst the first to be diagnosed as 'HIV Positive' and who were struggling to know 'what does that mean'?  And they were amongst 'the first' to be modern-day 'lepers' as far as society was concerned.
     I write about this in detail in my upcoming book 'ENTERTAINING ANGELS' LINK:  http://dearoneshealingministry.blogspot.com/2010/01/entertaining-angels-book-by-former_27.html
     You will read about those 'first' heart wrenching months when we began regular HIV testing.  You will read how exposed I was to the body fluids and substances of HIV+ individuals who were 'acting out' due to concurrent psychiatric issues.
     No distinction was made back then between 'HIV Positive' and 'AIDS', but you can imagine where my biochemist's mind was going each time a situation presented itself.
     You will read how I clutched a dear HIV+ lady to myself, resulting in my having a soaked-to-the-skin tear-drenched blouse and slip as I consoled her and she asked me to 'explain her test results'.
     In those early days of AIDS, you will read how I managed to get my own personal physician (a Stamford doctor many of you know!) to volunteer in our Clinic downstairs and how he monitors me to this day.
     And you will read how I 'gave permission' for the very first 'AIDS SUPPORT GROUP' to meet in the 'conference room' across from my tiny Salvation Army office on the first floor on (the old) Beehler Street HQ (Headquarters).
     Finally, you will read about my 'crisis pregnancy work' of many years wherein I was just as likely to 'send a gal for a pregnancy test' as I was to send her for an 'AIDS test' and the agony of waiting it all out. 
     You will read of the shock and disbelief of those early days when few acknowledged, let alone understood, the vagaries of this multi-faceted, multi-formed Human Immunodeficiency Virus in all its 'incarnations'.
     No one wanted to 'be involved' back then.  Everyone was 'afraid' and those who say otherwise are not being truthful. 
     My story needs to be told of the emergence of AIDS in Fairfield County, CT.  The 'early days' of this socio-medical saga must not be forgotten or glossed over, or, worse still, ignored.
     It is a tale of fear turned to hope, and of prejudice turned to compassion.
     And in it lies hope and guidance for dealing with what the future may hold.
God Bless You this World AIDS DAY 2010 & every day
Reverend Barbara Sexton

"About The Earthquakes In Japan & Elsewhere Today" By Reverend Barbara Sexton "The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"

Today's 6.6 Mag earthquake in Japan & elsewhere
Dear Ones:
     Yesterday I wrote a 'piece' on tornadoes attendant to energy from the sun reaching earth (as indicated by a rise in the Kp Index (the 'planetary K Index') and causing geomagnetic storm activity. LINK: http://dearoneshealingministry.blogspot.com/2010/11/about-tornadoes-today-by-reverend.html
     If you've been following my 'Tutorials', you know by now that energy from the sun can combine with the internal energy of the earth as well as with 'atmospheric energy' to produce: tornadoes, earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, floods, storms, lightning, thunder, auroras and any number of observable earth weather phenomena.
     Today, we had a substantial 6.6 magnitude earthquake in Japan after 'yesterday's' USA tornadoes.  I thank God that engineers there have been able to design and construct 'earthquake-resistant' structures, since Japan is so seismically active.
     The details of this earthquake are as follows.
DATE               TIME        LAT    LON  MAG  DEPTH km   LOCATION
30-NOV-2010 03:24:41 28.41 139.14 6.6 478.3 BONIN ISLANDS REGION
    
     The two earthquake data links I recommend are:
LINK: http://www.iris.edu/seismon/  for those with a mag >=4.0  and
LINK: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/ for smaller ones.
     The 'lesson' for today is this: yesterday's solar energy affecting the earth (as tornadoes across the USA) are TODAY also spawning some seismic activity, such as that in Japan.  Fortunately, this 6.6 quake was a 'deep one', at 478.3 km below the earth's surface.  As you will learn from my my Free 'Tutorials' (click below), 'the shallower the earthquake, the greater the potential for damage it has, in general'.
     It is almost impossible to precisely 'predict' when and where 'geomagnetic storm activity' on earth will manifest itself.  USUALLY, it takes 'a few days' for released solar flare energy to actually have an effect on our planet. 
     When and where this energy 'hits' is an imprecise science, at best.  We do well to observe all natural indicators (including animal behavior!) as we monitor our instrumentation.
     WE can learn to be on the ALERT when one of our NOAA or NASA sources indicates 'incoming energy' and attempt to anticipate how 'space weather' will be affecting our 'earth weather' via the 'geomagnetic storms' of movie fame...and which really do exist.
     Officials rarely want to 'alarm' anyone...even when they are giving the go-ahead to divulge an opinion.  Alas, by the time any 'official alerts' get to the public-at-large, it is often 'too late' for the masses to 'take action'.
     For this reason, I am encouraging all of you to take the sensible steps necessary to assure yourselves that (as long as you have computer access of some sort) that you are current with weather events.  This is especially important if you live in an earthquake-prone area or know someone who does.
     You owe it to yourselves and your families to take a few moments with my 'Tutorials.  You will quickly see the usefulness of the links and information I provide you with and that they are worth paying attention to.
     The 'scientist' in me is fascinated by today's technology even as the 'spiritual me' reaches out to the world in faith.
In Him,
Reverend Barbara Sexton

"About The Tornadoes Today" By Reverend Barbara Sexton "The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"

Dear Ones:
     You might be noting some 'extreme weather' in the form of tornadoes, etc., across the country today...or some 'other' day, for that matter. 
     I just want to point out that this correlates with some unstable 'space weather'...the energy of which is hitting the earth from the sun.
     Overall, our 'sun' is in what we call at a 'Solar Minimum'.  What this means is that while overall sun activity (in the form of solar flares and concurrent x-ray, electrical, proton, radio and other energy forms) occurs less frequently...the 'flare-ups' often stronger when they do occur.
LINK: http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2009/01apr_deepsolarminimum/
     As I have detailed in my 'Tutorials' (click below), when solar energy from a solar eruption manages to hit our planet, it is manifested in many ways, such as earthquakes, storms, tornadoes, etc. 
     Don't forget that the earth, itself, is the source of energy from down below the earth's crust, all the way down to it's core.  This 'earth energy' can combine with the 'geomagnetic storm energy' from the sun, resulting in earthquakes and the 'geomagnetic storms' of movie fame.
     Sometimes there is a 'lag period' of several days before we 'notice' anything here...and sometimes there is hardly any lag period at all.  Many factors enter into play, as you will learn.
     Above is the 'planetary Kp index' of the last couple of days. LINK: http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/rt_plots/kp_3d.html   Those 'yellow bars' represent 'energy' contributing to today's unstable weather (tornadoes in particular).  Whatever seismic activity there may be on earth today stands the chance of being at least a little bit intensified by the energy hitting earth from the sun, to be sure.
     Be sure to check NOAA's "Current Space Weather Warnings in effect" if you detect some foul weather coming your way so that you can judge for yourself how intense the activity might be for you and your loved ones locally.
LINK: http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/alerts/warnings_timeline.html      Here's today's Space Weather Warnings in effect:

"TSA Luggage Searches & Infective Potential Due To Dirty Unchanged Gloves & Bad Technique" By Reverend Barbara Sexton

Dear Readers:
     First of all, let me say that I am in no way blaming any TSA shortcomings on TSA Officers alone...but also on those who train, equip, monitor and discipline them.
     The fact is that TSA Officers are, at present, not CERTIFIED nor can they be EXPECTED TO conduct body and luggage searches with any type of consideration for 'sanitation', 'hygiene' or 'good health practices'. 
     As far as we know for now, all they are required to do is 'wear gloves' and conduct their searches without hurting, spilling, breaking or losing anything.  We can't expect of them anything resembling 'aseptic technique' and that's just a fact...especially at their paltry salary level.
     In a perfect world, care would of course be taken to make sure that persons' bodies and belongings were examined under as 'sanitary' conditions as possible.  Yes, this takes longer and costs more, requiring 'regular glove changes', as well as the wearing of masks and perhaps other protective gear apparel by the examining TSA Officer.
     And let us not forget that TSA Officers are deserving of more training and HAZARD PAY if Officials are determined to 'stay this course' of unsanitary 'pat-downs' and luggage searches, as well as 'dubiously safe 'scannings'.
     But as it is today, how is one to know if the TSA person examining their person and luggage is not harboring some kind of respiratory pathogen-viral, bacterial or even more exotic?  We'd like to know that the TSA Officer is not sneezing and hacking all over our luggage contents, but how can we know?
     The fact is, even 'in the best of scenarios', we just can't!
     How do we know that a 'good sneeze' on our toiletries did not take place, thus contaminating our personal items destined for use on our skin?
     We can't!
     How do we know that a TSA Officer's dirty gloves--contaminated with staph or strep or worse from a 'previous toiletries check'--has not just 'contaminated' our undies, handkerchiefs and personal items? We can't! 
     'Used' and 'sticky' personal hygiene items, toiletries and cosmetics--we all have them in our little plastic bags.  But few realize what GREAT HARBORERS and potential TRANSMITTERS of microorganisms they also are.
     Or, maybe we do and, if so, it's time to remember it!
     Don't we tell our children and young people NOT TO SHARE lipglosses, lipsticks, mascaras, deodorants, hairbrushes, washclothes and the like, product preservative systems notwithstanding?  Yes, we do.
     Is the public, let alone the TSA, cognizant of the fact that many 'soaps', far from being part of the 'cure' for our microbial contamination issues, are actually HAVENS for some of our worst water-loving pathogens?
     I don't know if they do.  But the fact is that the water-loving and living Pseudomonas aeruginosa (which produces a blue-green discoloration to the flesh and nails it infects), for instance, has been found to actually live in and 'EAT' certain (liquid) soaps!
     Pseudomonas' notoriety stems from the fact that systemic infection with it is overwhelmingly fatal.  And it 'loves' soap.
     With the advance of science, humankind is astounded to grasp the significance of the vast ability of the tiniest forms of 'life' to hunker down and survive and even thrive in any number of substances we use every day.
     And this knowledge ought rightly reduce us to humility as we realize that organisms invisible to our naked eyes can bring us not only to our knees, but to our Maker. 
     Thus my prayer is that such 'humility' will compel us to consider that which we might not otherwise and I start 'here' by way of simple example:
     You've packed 'damp' swimsuits for 'quick travel', haven't you?  Maybe you gave your child's suit a 'quick soapy rinse', packed it in a plastic bag for a flight and thought nothing of it.
     But have you considered the consequences of dirty, unchanged, potentially contaminated TSA Officer gloves closely examining this 'damp garment', since it is 'out of the norm'?  Have you considered that a little 'soap' can serve as a culture medium for some bad bugs?
     Or maybe you've just packed that suit, still damp with some chlorinated pool water.  In this case, I ask, "You DO realize that that little bit of chlorine is useless as an antimicrobial in the event of gross TSA Officer glove contamination, don't you?
     Unless you literally 'disinfect' that suit post haste, it is a real health hazard. 
     In a forthcoming article, I will detail some effective and practical ways to 'disinfect' items that have been subjected to 'TSA Screening'.  If you've never given this much consideration before, you will now...or you should, anyway.
     I'm not suggesting that we all adopt what some call 'Howard Hughes Syndrome'.  I'm not advising that we get OCD when it comes to 'germs'.  But we must get realistic and practical.  
     What is 'good for the traveler' is ALSO 'good for the TSA Officer', I might add.  From the standpoint of sheer exposure, the group MOST at risk from luggage and body-handling 'woes' is not the public, but the TSA workers themselves.
     So we all must listen and we all must act. 
     When it comes to the realities of living and travel today, "These are not 'our parents microorganisms' at all".  Gone are the good old days when eating a peck of dirt in a lifetime would help assure a 'good immune system'.
     We've 'blown out' our immune systems via various pharmaceuticals, environmental conditions and lifestyle choices.  And... 
     We have many more pathogens (microorganisms that cause disease in humans and other animals and even in plants).  And...
     Not only are there more pathogens, but many of them have become more virulent, meaning their 'infectious capability' and potential deadliness have also increased. 
     Far from being 'panic talk', what I am saying here is long-overdue for public consumption, in my opinion.  I've personally never worked in a biology or chemistry lab which didn't work in close association with a microbiology unit and sometimes a virology unit, as well.
     Many of us have 'cross-trained' and for good reason in both academic and manufacturing settings.  And some of us will speak openly about things the public needs to know in order to make intelligent decisions.
     By now you Readers are aware that the  'traditional medical establishment' is loathe to speak openly about nosocomial (hospital-acquired) and community-acquired infections...especially since the line between the two has become increasingly 'blurred' in the last decade.  You'd better bet that hospitals and health care facilities of all sorts are very dirty places!
     Just ask any patient or family member who has been unfortunate enough to have suffered from an infection in a health care setting.  Or just ask an honest health care provider and they will tell you also.
     The time to address all this is now.  How fortuitous in a sense, the TSA situation is, if only because it forces all to take a good look at 'public sanitation issues'.  
     In this age we do well to be concerned about our 'global health'.  As all 'flu outbreaks' originate in Asia and migrate sequentially to Hawaii, to California and onward to the east coast per epidemiological studies (typically, but not always!) we see new 'patterns' emerging every day. LINK: http://www.cdc.gov/flu/avian/
     Dengue Fever, for instance, despite a popular and misleading commercial to the contrary, is alive and well in Miami, Fl.  Here's a recent article I did on this, in fact: LINK: http://dearoneshealingministry.blogspot.com/2010/08/dengue-fever-redux-socio-medical.html    
     MISinformation dies hard, it would seem.
     Simply put, just because 'the public does not hear about it', doesn't mean that global patterns of disease spread are not morphing and changing before our very eyes, via the 'human vector'.
     You know what 'disease vectors' are.  Mosquitoes are one, as are birds and swine.  Vectors are, simply put, the factors by which disease is spread.
     And now, since 'man' is 'the most deadly predator', I am fearing that likewise, man in the end will be the 'deadliest disease vector' as well, a la 'the 'TSA Dirty-Glove Syndrome'.
     When we consider the natural and bioengineered microbial variants being discovered every day, we wonder how, with the status quo, we are to be safe in this 21st century.

"A Christmas Plea From Sgt Major Luke Converse--USMC Battalion Sergeant Major for the 2nd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, Afghanistan" By Reverend Barbara Sexton "The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"

Sgt Major Luke Converse Intro

Hello, this is Sgt Major Luke Converse. I am the Battalion Sergeant Major for the 2nd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, currently deployed to Afghanistan. The Marines are doing some tremendous work over here. They are living rough, basically out of their LAV’s for the most part and are taking the fight to the Taliban. I have been in the Corps for 24 years and still marvel at Marines in combat. They are definitely living up to their legacy.

The Marines are in need of a lot of basic toiletry items. We are at the end of the line logistically, so they start to run out of things like soap, razors, socks are worth their weight in gold- simple cotton tube socks- (over the calf type) The Marines are on the go, it is incredibly hot and they packed lots of socks, but we have trouble with water to wash them, and then we seldom slow down… Baby wipes are also a hot commodity- we never have enough of them. Because we are geographically remote… we don’t have access to a PX where they can purchase these items on their own.

I greatly appreciate anything you can do for the Marines. I have 400 from my bn and another 150 in attachments- anything you can send to me will be given to the Marines via their company 1st sgts…

This is my mailing address:

"TSA Bumper 'Snickers' For You" By Reverend Barbara Sexton-- Dear Ones HealingMinistry

From e-mail:
Dear Readers:
     Sorry, I know some of these may be 'close to the line', but considering the subject matter, maybe not.  In any case, I hope you can at least have a little 'chuckle' at some of them. 
     THANKS UNCLE CHARLIE for sending these along!
     But seriously, the new TSA 'regulations' are no picnic for TSA Officers, any more than they are for (we) hapless travelers.  I say this not only as someone involved with the MRC (Medical Reserve Corps) LINK: http://www.medicalreservecorps.gov/HomePage , but as a PASTOR and BIOCHEMIST who is a fellow traveler, as well.
     And so I say, let us remember that TSA Officers are 'as much at risk'-if not more so-than the customers they must 'frisk'! 
     If you think about it, those in charge of our 'security' are also as subject to the communicable diseases (not to mention the words and actions of angry persons) as we are. 
     I cannot help but think that this must be so very stressful for those who work to keep us safe and I have written about this before, recently.  LINK: http://dearoneshealingministry.blogspot.com/2010/11/biochemist-concerned-tsa-pat-downs-will.html
     Let us pray that we can ALL contribute to and formulate a reasonable solution, before things get even MORE out-of-hand.  
     I would urge the federal government to 'get real' about WHO the likely culprits may be when it comes to airline security.  I would urge our leaders to 'opt out of' POLITICAL CORRECTNESS and 'opt in' for decent treatment of United States Citizens. 
     It is possible for Homeland Security and the TSA to continue their vigilance on our behalf regarding those who would appear to have the potential to DO HARM to airline passengers WITHOUT infringing TOO MUCH on the rights of American travelers.
     I understand, as I'm sure you do, the need to investigate atypical, anomalous persons, items and events.  Five years ago,I traveled to Florida with an old, beat-up, 'popped open and taped' laptop and was 'called aside'.  No surprise there. 
     I was asked to 'open the computer up'.  Truth to tell, I was more embarrassed about the state of my device than I was about being 'singled out' in line.
     Not only was my computer swabbed, but coincidentally a wrist splint I was wearing was ALSO liberally swabbed by some very competent & polite TSA people.  We all 'survived' the day.
     Yes, I understood, explosives can indeed be secreted in casted limb material.  I just hadn't thought of it at that time.    
     I passed their scrutiny and all was done with good 'humor' and I learned to remove any 'prostheses' and orthopedic devices well BEFORE reaching my airport 'screener".
     But now we are in a 'New Age' and we wonder if we can get BACK to such 'easy travel for all citizens of the U.S.A'.  For what it's worth, I believe we can.    
     I think we can overcome our divisions and come together, get our act together and find a way to DO THINGS RIGHT!
     Please pray with me on this, whatever your 'religious persuasion' and even if you are an 'atheist', 'agnostic', 'pagan'...or none of the above.
     I believe in my heart that we can get past this.
May God Grant You ALL'Traveling Mercies' this Thanksgiving & Holiday Season & Beyond!
