2/27/2010 Chili Quake

"Of course do not forget other areas effected by Natural Disasters! I often wondered why Haiti quake recieved more attention then the last major quake and huge Tsunami that effected the entire Pacific Rim.. before.. It is not a contest of course who helps who more but what is important is all these areas struck by natural disasters are helped, if you can not spare money. Try click to donate sites, Keep them in your prayers and thoughts. Positive thought energy and prayers can manifest into some great things. They are always in my prayers and thoughts. This quake my 6th sense did pick up on around 2pm yesterday central time usa is when I started to get ear ringings shakes and dizziness.. feeling itch all things I feel before sensing quakes I did recieve details later on by I was to ill to post it drained and tired...I had no choice but to go to sleep..I could not function...I have spoke often about the Ring of fire area being more active at this time. This is suppose to be the hard year where it will get really rought natural disaster wise.. and the end of the cycle is suppose to be dec 25 2012 .. People keep saying end of the world. No, it is a dramatic change in the world. New Land is gonna be formed new ancient cities rediscovered.. other places covered up and wiped so well you never new they ever existed as what we witnessed in some places like Katrina.. The Earth is changing, and our technology is changing.. It is interesting on both ends. stay safe, and pay attention to the Earth's Changes.. " - DNatureofDTrain

2/26/2010 General News

"Now, Where I stand on hunting and saving animals is very controversial. I am not against Hunting animals, if they are on your own property, or are bothering your livestock. I am not against hunting any animal in a small quantities on your own property. I am against mass killing, and over harvesting of animals, I am against people massively hunting and poaching animals that are endangered, and rare. Now, in my opinion if a person wants to hunt a couple of wolves of coyotoes on their own property or with permission of the property owner I do not have an issue with that. But, Considering most of the USA does not eat or use coyote or wolf meat.. or all parts of the animal they harvest. I do not see any legitimate reason for any corporation to step up and want to slaughter thousands of wolves, the only exception is if they bred and farmed the wolves on their own land!... Or if it is a serious over population issue. Then harvesting or hunting wolves is not a bad thing.. Because when animals are to populated in a small area of terroritory.. HUMANS included. They start to attract disease, illness, and even become violant towards eachother due to lack of space, food, or resources, However.. I would always prefer they relocate the Wolves or coyotes at the right time.. keep the packs and families together.. Instead of slaughter them. I would rather not see either of these animals hunted, but I do understand the difference between how hunting is and can be beneficial to both Humans and Animals.. and yet, how it can turn around and harm both in the end too... If they want to push stupid things through like "No Wolves allowed"... Then Say oh No wolf stories allowed in school on t-shirts or hats.. So I guess reading the three little pigs is out since it talks about the Big bad wolf! " - DNatureofDTrain

Defenders' wolf expert and Northern Rockies Representative Suzanne Asha Stone worked with the producers of NOW on PBS to show the long-term benefits of wolf reintroduction in Greater Yellowstone and the northern Rockies.

Well I wanted to toss this out there again for all those who may have missed it. I had about 400 people tell me tthey would be interested in awareness clothing and have one order so far. I know there has been some issues with mail getting delivered here on Facebook. So figuring maybe you guys may not be getting this. If you are leave me some feedback if ya just dont like what you see or want something else. I can not buy the bracelets at a good price yet, because I have to buy a bulk amount up front to get them for you at a decent price. If you search the net you can find tons of places selling them. I will have them eventually along with other items if this basic site does well. It is very basic just to get things started. I added options to ship to Canada and Austrailia today, so it will automatically add shipping when you check out for those countries. Thanks much to everyone who is supporting this cause. It has been an amazing ride with such amazing people for the last year. Next big mark is a Million people. Invite your friends, post your stories and share your wisdom. You guys are awesome. Here is the site link for awareness clothing.

"I for the most part am against Quiet zones, However.. I would personally approve of these wayside horns in areas where multiple roads are within a short distance of eachother.. For the locals and engineers sake.. BUT, You need to keep in mind should the railroad crossings, and or horns malfuction.. you may end up listening to a horn and signals dinging without a train for 2-4 or more hours depending on how long it takes for people to report the signals and horn going off without a train. So this attempt to make it quieter can and will at times make the area a slight bit noisey... as weather happens, quakes, happen, broken rails happens, and electrical malfunctions happen.. So keep that in mind. It is just so much easier if the world would learn to respect stopping at the crossings.. would save alot of money and noise.. But, I firmly believe the crossings need to be marked clearly by sight and sound, as well as a warning sign approaching them.." - DNatureofDTrain

"Many have heard but many may have not about the Earthquake in Illinois felt as far north as Madison, WI and as Far South as TN... .. Well, I live in Janesville, Area of Wisconsin... I felt and heard it too. I have experienced quite a few different quakes but this one was very very different.

In the other quakes I have felt the quake itself felt like it traveled slower across the land, and the shaking seemed at a slower pace...

This one the shaking was very fast, very intense, and very loud, in the others It did not seem to make a sound.

My experience was this. I was at the computer chatting with my friend.. Prior to the quake I was having strange headaches and my ears kept feeling like they were gonna pop.... And the pain and pressure grew stronger this started about a half hour before the quake hit for me.. as I had numerous other sensations I was wondering if I needed to go to the doctor for possible seizures... and was extremely irritable and was taking it out on my best friend in im .. which I kept getting disconnected from then could not log back into at 3:58.. I heard what sounded like a fighter jet in the distance.. But the sound was different than the normal flight path... So I got up stood at the doorway of the office looked outside.. the window and  hear the sound grew louder and louder till it sounded like a thunderclap as it echoed acrossed the land Southwest to North West.. bang bang bang really loud, and I saw flashes of light outside.. I never seen the light flashes with a quake like that before.. but... I knew when the shaking reached me imediately what it was and after the lights and loud sound passed i could hear the ground rumbling and shaking... as I wandered back to the computer chair in a haze the shakes even from far away was enough to make me go search for that fighter jet.. Sometimes I like to get up watch them fly over and salute them.. ..

For the last few days on and off  I had been hearing rumblings in the ground, been dizzy tired, irritable ... strange feelings on my skin pin prick, itchy feelings.. Not sure why I sense this.. But just before the physical sound of it my ears ring really bad..... I thought it was a thunderstorm coming at first .. one  of the other reasons I wandered to look out the window was to make sure those flashes were not lightning... I stood there for awhile.. on and off looking outside at it.

Such a minor thing in my neighborhood but very exciting to me... I posted about it also on my psychic blog but the post is not complete.. but I still feel hazy minded so I will edit the post when I feel a little clearer in thought.. "

I have been working on this blog

2/2/2010 1:29:00 PM

As you can see I have been workin on this blog to make a few changes..

to make it look better.. and load better .. well.. It is gonna take some time to relocate the older posts to the next page for the archives.. I believe that is what it really slowing down the loading time for this blog..

For some the blogs little summary may appear on the right hand side for others it may appear on the very bottom of the page, It has the blog archives, then it has the archives page I made.. All 2009 posts will be put into the next page archives.. and after I get the old blog archives relocated to the topica list, eventually this archives will be there too and all will be reposted as links in the archive section.. for people to check out if they want to.. but most news links tend to expire between 30 to 90 days.. so they eventually go dead...

I been working on this news blog all morning.. So thank you for your patience all.
