Just added to the site….

If you will notice, there is now a new PayPal donation button at the top of the left-hand column of our site. This new button is rather simple and self-explanatory, it is a way for you to contribute to our “Federal Employee Relief Fund.  Just click the banner and you are taken directly to the PayPal account so you can make your donations there. Just remember when you make your donations to make sure you indicate what the funds are for. You can do this by simply going to the comment section on the part you fill out. Indicate there that the donation is for “The Employee Relief Fund.” Once we have enough donations in, we will start assisting as many people as possible. Also I have included the html code for this banner, in case you would like to put it on your site, which I hope you do.

As of this morning, there is no end in sight for the government shut-down. Out of the 800,000 employees effected by this shut-down, 35,000 of them are from Kentucky alone. We don’t have the figures for the rest of the states but we do hope to get them shortly. Due to the fact that some of the people in our area follow our site, we have made one minor impact. The landlords of different apartment complexes in the area, have agreed to let the Federal Workers skip paying their rent till they go back to work. This is wonderful news, at least some good-hearted people are listening and concerned as we are about the shut-down. Of course, when they do go back to work, they will have to repay the rent missed but they won’t have to worry about getting kicked out onto the streets. Small progress but a relief for some very worried, out of work employees. Now if we could get more landlords to follow suit that would be fantastic.

Now that’s the good news, now the bad. I know in our area, as well as across the country, food banks are getting hit hard. These food banks assist 100’s of individuals throughout the month. They are by no means able to keep up with the current demand and influx of new individuals coming in and needing assistance with their groceries. The food banks in this area estimate that if the current surge in the number of people needing help continues, they will not have enough food on hand to assist these people. I know myself and I am sure Lady Beltane would agree that when we get the funds, we would be more than willing to donate money to these food banks and any others across the country that are facing the same situation. If you know of a food bank in your area that is facing this same crisis, please let us know about it. Whether it is helping a food bank or an individual, we are willing to do so. It is an awful feeling not to have a penny to your name and facing your family going hungry. These people has worked tirelessly for our government and for us, they need our help. There is no reason these people should have to go hungry because of a government that is using them as political pons. No reason whatsoever! That is why it is very important for us to raise the funds to help these families and the food banks out. I don’t believe anyone ever believed the shut-down would last this long but unfortunately it has. It is also expected to last even longer. Without our help, these families can’t survive. We are asking you to give any amount that you can. Even the smallest amount could make the difference for some child having cereal for breakfast or even having breakfast. These are our neighbors, our friends, our family and our brothers & sisters.. They need our help, please do what you can to assist them in this time of need.

Yesterday, I was asked for a list of email addresses for all the elected officials in Washington at this time. The individual who asked, wants to write her elected officials about the shut down and what an effect it is having on the American citizens. As soon as the list goes up, I would encourage more of you to do so. It seems our government officials are not thinking about the citizens of this great country. Instead they are thinking about what they want and their own personal agendas. They are not thinking about what the citizens need or have to have to survive. They gave the Federal workers tips on how to get by during this shut-down as I mentioned before, babysit, have a yard/garage sale or even walk a dog. I would love for someone to tell Nancy to go walk a dog. She would be utterly offended to get out of her million dollar home and go walk a dog. But yet they expect these Federal workers too, Bull! Every time I think about that I get upset. Go walk a dog, hell Nancy, you go walk a dog!

I have one more favor to ask then I will go and track down all the government officials’ email addys for you. My favor is  that you take our banner for donations and spread it every place you can. Spread it to ever social media outlet you have access to. I believe it is going to get a lot worse before it gets any better. It is going to take all of us to make sure this country doesn’t go to hell in handbag (if it is not already happened). Any assistance you can give us in spreading the word about what we are doing is greatly appreciated. Also remember if you have a blog, website, podcast or whatever, you are more than welcome to join us. The more the merrier and the more there are, the greater impact we will have.

Thank you,

Lady of the Abyss

Week 6 – Goddess Knowledge – Pele

Pele is the fiery Hawaiian volcano goddess. The daughter of the earth goddess Haimea, Pele came to Hawaii on a boat. Killed in a fight with her sister, the ocean, sho took refuge in the glowing cauldron of Mount Kilauea (this is the volcano that had the major eruption in July 2018 – a link will be below) where she receives the souls of the dead and regenerates them with fire. In a tempestuous relationship with Kamapua`a the ferocious pig god,  she is portrayed as a jealous goddess, her rages manifesting as volcanic eruptions. Revered by Hawaiians even today, she carries the force of the volcano, with its molten lava flow, which even in destrud=ction creates new land. Pele stands for the molten, fierce aspect of life that is unable to do anything halfway. She reminds us that even in the midst of fiery eruption there s creation and new life.
