I have had a fairly 'normal' day today (for me).
Time hasn't been too long... Or to short!
Got a few issues with my building project sorted over the phone, then had a muse around on my own cos everyone is offsite!
Happy with it all though. Great craftsmen on the job, still think I ought to get a (small) refund from the architect!
I suddenly knew/realised today that the account of the day of Atonement, and sending the other 'twin' substitute was a terrible ordeal.
Azazel + Azlan.
A future too far off to comprehend. (C.S. Lewis)
A dimension outside 'normal time'.
Reading Jonathan Livingston seagull helps to explain it.
(Well it made a lot of sense to me, as I had to reconcile some very difficult stuff).
The Bible is full of twin children at crucial moments, and usually the older twin must serve the younger twin.
Ref: Jesus myth! That he was a twin. Possibly Didymus. However this is irrelevent, as John the Baptist was his cousin.
This was the important factor.
Even if Jesus was a twin, God's providence was made through Him.
(As per the Jacob and Easau history).
I still stand ... or sit still, and weep for Jasmin, her song is as fresh today as the first day I heard it.
I missed my Husband terribly today as he was away for over four Hours.
I had a milch around the sale rooms and found an interesting box! The newspaper lining the box was fascinating. The top of the box has a French treaty dated somtime (I think) just after the First World War. Interest rates were being held at 1.5%.
The second piece of paper was wrapped around a sheet of glass from either 1985 or 1987, can't remember, but interest rates were quoted at 14 to 14.5% per month! I had a chat with some random guy and showed him how the box fitted together, but i'ts past restoring, unless you are really into that kind of stuff.
Going back to the newspapers. This means anyone with money invested in 1985/87was doubling their money every 5 months!
(If it was an annual rate that's every 5 years).
No wonder there was an economic crash in 1987!
Gazumping.... everyone with money was buying property while insider dealing was legal... ish!
I haven't checked but decimalization was 1972. (UK)
So was the abolition of Grammer Schools. (ish)
So, dumb down education, devalue the basic money value, as everyone on £40 per week will need double this every 5 years...
Et voila! You can get onto an electronic money system, where bad money drives out good money, and Gordon Brown gets suckered/employed into selling off British Gold reserves at an all time low on Gold Prices.
Well... all this scrap gold and silver buying going on right now in the UK, is an attempt to rebuild a British Gold standard by robbing gold teeth off old ladies who were investing in their funeral costs.
Why take 'good' money out of circulation? !!! And don't raise interest levels beyond 1.% otherwise it is usury.
(Sorry snaffed off to have Dinner) Nice Curry! .. I made dinner tonight. Not too hot!
The Biblical standard described in the Pentateuch was desisgned to give a sound economic stability to society.
When the Romans went into (Spain and western France) the currency was still Cinnamon sticks. Probably still a remnant from Beka society. That was four sticks wrapped round with Bark. The idea was that you could actually eat or use it any way you wanted. Like salt it was/is good for preserving food.
Well it took a lot of time to 'educate' the locals to the idea that metal was a good currency, as they had always dealt in commodiies.
Now we have a wretched 'Futures' market that sells things before they are even available.
That is what your 'free market' actually means.
It means if I expected to get 10lbs of new potatoes out of my vegplot next year, if I wanted to 'trade' them, someone has already cornered the market by 'buying' the 10lb produce of every grower they can... that is due to be planted and grown next year.
Then after a couple of years when the old 'trade routes' have dispersed and no longer function, this 'buyers market' can set the value of what I intend to grow forever! Crafty or what!
So hence my alternative 'nom de plume' of 'vegplotting'!
