Note: This is here I relocate my blog archives so my blog does not get to full. However, Many of the sites and links are do expired over time, and will not load, also the videos that were removed were not transfered via link to the archives, so embed coding is transfered to the archives I will eventually add a specific area for video archives but for now the coding and or just links will remain archived, with the test, as my current archives does not allow the display of such.

December 20th 2009 - Important Update Note from DNatureofDTrain

12/20/2009 11:18:00 PM

Five days till Christmas? waaaaaaaan .. okay done crying now :D ...

Speaking of Crying and fussing.. Blogger finally got around to verifying that my News Article and Sharing blog is not a spam blog and not breaking their TOS.. However... I will bring this blog out of beta soon.. as soon as I can get back to normal posting, and well.. Reorganize my codes and news feeds to go along with this.. I have already started to repost the older News articles archives here.. I will later on add a link to this called Older Archives.. ...

 http://lists.topica.com/lists/mynewsarchive/read

I hope our regular readers eventually find their way over to this new blog soon...

If I can not get the coding straighten out... I will put the code itself on a seperate webpage and link to it..

Now there has been numerous hold ups.. Technical Difficulties with computers, our power line behind the house they spliced burned out again... then I had an eye infection, and some form or flu been sicker than heck... tired exhausted and this is the season for me to feel run down and tired anyhow do to my season depression.. I also been busy helping my parents out on and off watching their foster children... as my mother finishes up Christmas shopping...

So, althought my blog has been neglected.. I want all my regular readers to know.. I am sorry for neglecting to post your news content ::gives puppy look:: But I still love ya.. and I hope your holiday season is going better than mine is! .. and hope to get the archives and posts caught up before New Years Day if I can..

I want people to also know. That my hard feelings for blogger.com has melted away it is just a simple technical glitch between their spam bot, and my multi link posting.

So, I no longer encourage the plans to boycott blogger.. But I need to put to use my other resources I have.. like my forum, and this blog.

"Well.. Most of you know about my psychic abilities and railroad empathy.. Well the visions and dreams I have not had much of for a long time in clarity.. now that my health is improving the dreams and visions are returning and they are a nuisance.. because I am not used to them or the other energies I sense its like smacks in the forehead causing headaches.. and I been feeling pains, and just ultimately irritable and not very fun to be around social wise lately either... part of it is do to all the stills, and the sensations I pick up pain wise, electrical feelings, then the small black outs and images that are similar to a memory flashback.. except they are not my memories they are images of things about to happen, that are happening at the moment, or have happened in the past. My attention has been pulled to Eurorail alot lately.. and then of course the many areas hit by heavy snowstorms... Good news is I manage and handle this abilities better than I used to.. but.. bad news is.. They are still very intense and take their toll on my physical and mental emotional energy...

"Now, one of the reasons I have been so ill, is many of you know I deal with coughing I am more prone to respiratory illness due to my asthma and sinus issues.. So, I sometimes take cough drops.. well.. they started to put this artificial sweetner called aspartame in all the cough drops now.. I had a seizure a few nights ago due to this stuff. So you won't find me touching anything with aspartame in it ever again.. I noticed my issues with it years ago.. in fact if I was aware of cough drops having that in it in the first place I would not touch it.. Halls Coughdrops and Ricola both have it.. I am gonna have to go into town with Dad and read all the packages to find one that does not have it I found an old halls package three years old that does not have it.. so I swiped that one into my hidden stash of goodeys to last me for now..
