UFOs travel millions, maybe even billions of miles from their home planet to visit and/or to seek out new life and new civilazations. They would be more technology advanced than we are. They may have tuned to our planet and caught scenes of us humans engaging in wars and little did they know they were watching a war movie or a tv series and determined we were violent.
I'm confident they are looking for a way to make themselves known to us without being captured and cut up in some lab on some military base. There were two good instances where they could have helped us and at the same time show everyone they were friendly and came in peace.
One instance was the biggest tsunami ever recorded on earth. Remember that earlier this year? There were reports of UFOs flying around that area and yet they did nothing to calm the sea, and nothing to rescue those humans caught up in that tsunami.
Another instance, was the nuclear reactor in Japan. I'm sure with the technology of the aliens, they must know how to deal with such deadly matter. They could have neutralized the radiation or at least cleaned up the area so the people could live on the very same ground with the radiation gone for good. It never happened and there reports of what may have been UFOs flying around in that vicinity of the nuclear radiation.
So, are they friendly? I doubt it as they would have helped. Or they could actually have been nothing more than Satan's demons flying around causing us to doubt God by beings also created by Him. Besides, if they were real, why didn't they help mankind during Noah's Flood?
So, what is their reason for visiting us if they aren't going to make themselves known to us? Maybe they come to check out my journals here!!!!

Did Adam and Eve have a childhood?
Most likely, unless it had been a while after the seventh day of creation [the second creation]. As an adult, did Eve have an occupation? She was to be Adam's helper and supporter. She showed she could nnot handle equality with Adam, since she betrayed her husband's paradise by her disobedience. Adam was in charge of the entire Garden.
DID ADAM AND EVE HAVE A "BELLY BUTTON"?
No! They were not born in a woman's womb. God created them full-grown. Would have been tuff getting full size into a woman's womb. Besides, if they were born in a womb, who would have taken care of them all the years they needed to be grown up. Yet, many photos, pictures, and art paintings show them with and without a belly button. If they had a belly button, how could that be explained...created with a belly button.

The Charleston is a jazz composition that was written to accompany the Charlrston dance. It was composed in 1923 with lyrics by Cecii Mack and music by James P. Johnson. The Charleston is a dance named for the city of Charleston, SC. The peak year for the Charleston as a dance by the public was mid 1926 to 1927.
The dance is most frequently associated with white flappers and the speakeasy. The lyrics to the Charleston are:
Charleston, Charleston Made in Carolina. Some dance, some prance. I'd say better than finer then the Charleston, Charleston Boy how you can shuffle every step you do leads to something new. Man, I'm telling you its a lopazoo. Back dance, wing dance will be a back number, but the Charleston the new Charleston, that dance is surely a comer sometime, you'll dance it one time. That dance called the Charleston, made in South Carolina.
The Charleston [along with the Black Bottom dance helped shatter the dominance of couple dancing. It was perfectly permissible for the dancer to dance singly!

Black Bottom refers to a dance which became popular in the 1920s, during the period known as The Flapper Era." The dance originated in New Orleans in the 1900s. "The Original Black Bottom Dance" was printed in 1919. It came from an earlier dance called "Jacksonville Rounders Dance" printed in 1907. The word Rounder was a synonymn for "pimp." The 1927 version of this dance is the best version. Both the above songs/dances were written by black pianist/composer,dancer Perry Bradford.
LYRICS TO THE BLACK BOTTOM:
Hop down front, Doodle back.
Mooch to your left then Mooch to the right.
Put your hands on your hips Mess Around
Break a leg until you're near the ground
Now that's the Old Black Bottom Dance.
Break a leg=hobbling step
Mooch=shuffle forward with both feet. Hips go first, then feet.
The Black Bottom combines shoulder and hip movements, bent kn ees, crouched torsos, and hip and pelvis movements. This danced [plus the Charleston] helped shatter the dominance of couple dancing. It was perfectly permissible for the dancedr to dance singly.

The American economy in the 1920s was powerful from 1920mto October 1929 is frequently overlooked or simply submerged by the more existing topics such as prohibition, the gangsters, and the jazz age with its crazies. However, the strength of America was generated and driven by its vast economic power.
I admit I would like to have lived during that time period when living was care-free and happy [to an extent]. If any of the readers to this lived during the 1920s, you describe the 1920s. Did they ROAR, or was it a YAWN?
In the 1920s, a new woman was born. According to my grandmother, the new woman, she smoked, she drank, and she voted. She cut her hair, wore make-up, and went to petting parties! She was giddy and took risks. She was a flapper. Before WW1, the Gibson Girl was the rage. The term Flapper described young girls, still somewhat awkward in movement who had not yet entered womanhood. Ha! Today its drugs and alachol that makes the younger generation act the way they do-they are going to enjoy life and have fun and take dares!
Famous gangsters like Al Capone whose sense of style shaped the look of success. Flappers defined the American spirit. The 1920s was a decade of elegance, a time of prohibition, and violence, a time of spirit and creativity and its music...and the beautiful Louise Brooks.

The office of Chancellor of Germany [known in German as Bundeskanzler [Federal Chancellor"], or Kanzler for short in under the German 1949 Constitution, the head of government in Germany. She is the most powerful influencial woman in politics. She was elected in 2005. She is the first female Chancellor since the establishment of the original office in 1867. Merkel is also the first Chancellor elected since the fall of the Berlin wall to have been raised in the former East Germany.
Merkel is head of the one real global economy in Europe and is the "undisputed" leader of the EU. She is a brave woman, she is a role model for women folk in the world. She has extraordinary confidence, leadership, charm, calm and mathematical perfection. She can change the world and make it better and she seems to do just that.
In addition to being the #1 most powerful influencial woman in politics based on Forbes, she is also #6 of the most powerful people in the world. She is 57 years old, lives in Berlin, her hometown is Hamburg, and she is married.
I admire this woman. Imagine what she could do for America.

We know that Jesus will return but we don't know when, only the Father knows. But, isn't Jesus God? There has never been a time when there have been more reasons to expect the Second Coming! Perhaps when a nuclear war breaks out, then He will return.
That leads me to wonder a few things! Would the sinners throw a Welcome Back Jesus Party? Would it occur as its happening? No! It would have to be during the last week of the 7th year before the "end." Who would they have as guest speakers? What kind of entertainment will be offered? Most likely the satanists will put on their acts, the Pagans will do their thing. Devilish costumes will be worn and cult religions will be spouting their beliefs and putting Jesus and God down.
Rich foods will be offered [yes, devilish eggs too]. Liquor will be offered and you can eat and drink yourself to death all week long. Anything goes for the whole week before Jesus returns. Everyone partying believes Jesus won't be coming because they know its just a myth.
And, as usual, the tv cameras and news teams will be there reporting everything. But, what are the Christians doing during the 7 years? One thing is for certain...they are not at the party! Where is Satan? He's not at the party. He knows the truth, so why party?
Let's move ahead to the big day, the 2nd Coming is happening! Everyone at the party is shell shocked. Their jaws drop in amazement, their bodily fluids and solid waste let go...the fluids would have drowned everyone if it weren't for storm drains in the streets. Crying can be heard! Then, as that's happening, all Christians are taken up to heaven and everyone else disappears to be with other sinners awaiting judgment!
BY THE WAY...it wasn't much of a party anyway!

A DANCE CALLED - THE SHAG.
Ground zero for the Shag phenomenon [aka the Carolina Shag] has always been Myrtle Beach, SC where jitterbugs swing, danced at open-air beach parties. Billy Jeffers and "Chicken" Hicks are two of the main shaggers credited with developing the dance we now know, helping to slow down the tempo of the original jitterbug and incorporate sexier, looser movements into it. Today the Shag is an established segment of Southern Culture. The basic dance is now the official dance of the states of North and South Carolina.
The Shag is an offshoot of Swing. Shag [often called "beach music"] didn't have a scene to spring from, no primary city of development. The Shag is sort of a lazy jitterbug, done on beaches, often at night, always with someone of the opposite sex. The music had to be sqing, sexy, fun, and lazy [average tempo: 110-135 bpm]. But the general consenses is that there should be a slow shuffle at the bottom and some sort of southern soul on top. The music genres are: old and new soul, old and new R&B, some boogie, some blues, and some old R&R.
The Shag is "slotted" - that is, moving in essentially a straight line, and keeps the footwork close to the ground and the upper body movements to a minumum. Its danced from the waist down.
This is one dance I like and can dance to. Its fun. Check the next journal for photos of this dance.

Time to polka! One of the types of dances and its music that I've come to enjoy lately, is POLKA MUSIC. Could I dance the polka? No, not really! Most of this dance at times is...fast! You could wizz right off the dance floor at times.
The polka is a lively couple-dance in a moderately fast duple meter. The polka is gradually increasing its position among Polish dances. Magazines and newspapers of this music in the last 15 years or so, and even soome still to this day, have news items, descriptions, illustrations and advertisements, referring to the dance and its music, artists, radio stations, dance schedules, lists of the dance clubs, in each state of America and other things.
The polka is so widespread that there is a seperate category at the Grammy Awards. As an exhibition dance, the polka includes a variety of gestures, with special steps, jumps, and kicks, lifting the women, and dancing in circles, etc. To listen to this great music, check out these polka websites of radio stations: www.polkaheaven.com/ , www.radio4polkas.com/ , tunein.com/radio/polka-g84/. There's hundreds of other stations, but you'll find them on the internet.
To learn just about everything there is about polka music, just search the internet, then get out on the dance floors this weekend and dance the polka!
