Black Victoriana

I was curious about the subject of black people during the Victorian era.  The Victorian era was from 1837 to 1901.  A Google search revealed some of the most beautiful photographs of people of African descent during the Victorian period.  I am thrilled that these photographs were taken for posterity.  It is nice to see people of color so well dressed and put together for those times.  These photographs are very important because they document an aspect of black history that is generally never spoken of.

 This is a photo of Lady Sarah Bonita Forbes Davies.  Sara was born in West Africa and subsequently captured during the slave trade.  Captain Frederick E. Forbes of the Royal Navy gave her the name Sara Forbes.  Sara was taken to England and given to Queen Victoria.  The Queen immediate noticed that Sara was exceptionally intelligent and so she took Sara under her wing.  Queen Victoria raised Sara as her god-daughter within the British middle class.
      When Sara was 20 Queen Victoria sanctioned her marriage to Captain James Davies in August of 1862.  Captain Davies was a Yoruba businessman.   Sara and James had a daughter who whom they christened Victoria and she became the god-daughter of Queen Victoria.
Please visit the link at the TOP of this article to see more pictures and to continue reading the story of Queen Victoria’s God-daughter.

Unconscious mind can detect a liar — even when the conscious mind fails — ScienceDaily

Posted on

Science Daily has republish an article from the Association for Psychological Science that states: Unconscious mind can detect a liar — even when the conscious mind fails ..

“When it comes to detecting deceit, your automatic associations may be more accurate than conscious thought in pegging truth-tellers and liars, according to research. The findings suggest that conscious awareness may hinder our ability to detect whether someone is lying, perhaps because we tend to seek out behaviors that are supposedly stereotypical of liars, like averted eyes or fidgeting. But those behaviors may not be all that indicative of an untrustworthy person.”

This Story/Research is not the only one on this topic, so I am including here brief descriptions with direct links to these other findings, as well as the direct link for this specific article.

She’s coming into her power…

Posted on Updated on

She’s coming into her power…

shared by Source of the earth on FB

She is focused on a clear direction now, no “ifs or buts,”

because she finally knows what works for her inside,

and outside naturally conforms when she follows that.

She will no longer settle for less through her own fear or lack of effort.

Gone is the “Damsel in distress”.


She’s figured out that true power is taking responsibility for everything that shows up in her life…

She realizes that she was giving away her power in the past by making excuses,

playing the victim and being far too dependent on others.

She trapped herself as a result,

She’s no longer willing to do that.


She’s not afraid to speak up and create her boundaries,

She says it like she sees it and needs it and she says it without any underlying angst or apology.

She’s simply straightforward and others have no need to take offense because there is nothing there

for their own insecurity to hook into….

They simply accept it and respect her for it.


Through focusing on what she wants and being organized about it,

she’s in her flow of power and is no longer fighting against the waves of karma from the past or struggling to

find her air in the controlling hands of others.


She knows her limitations and delegates what she cannot do or feels is unnecessary for her to do…

She’s not willing to exhaust herself to prove anything,

She’s become skilled at her own energy conservation.

This frees her to excel in what she can do and enjoys doing.


She’s choosing a peaceful, gentle life fueled by the fire of her creativity and she leaves her door open

expectantly for adventure, spontaneity and high romance.

Naturally they answer her call and show up on her doorstep.

she knows how to call in her magic and make it work for her.

a big part of her secret is to simplify, release the clutter on every level and lighten up her life…

She has let go of a lot but she misses none of it because in their place she has found her clarity and balance.


These days her social interactions feed her rather than drain her…

As a result she has energy to be present for others when she is needed and it never feels burdensome.

Her clarity enables theirs.

More often than not, there is a smile on her face and she is relaxed and happy.

She’s loving her life and her life is loving her back.

What is the proper pronunciation of God’s name & why is it important? with Joel Grimes

Posted on Updated on

Biblical Word Studies with Joel Grimes

 What is the proper pronunciation of God’s name & why is it important?

In the second half of the first millennium C.E., Jewish scholars introduced a system of points to represent the missing vowels in the consonantal Hebrew text. When it came to God’s name, instead of inserting the proper vowel signs for it, they put other vowel signs to remind the reader that he should say ʼAdho·nai′ (meaning “Sovereign Lord”) or ʼElo·him′ (meaning “God”).
The Codex Leningrad B 19A, of the 11th century C.E., vowel points the Tetragrammaton to read Yehwah′, Yehwih′, and Yeho·wah′.

Ginsburg’s edition of the Masoretic text vowel points the divine name to read Yeho·wah′. (Ge 3:14, ftn)

Hebrew scholars generally favor “Yahweh” as the most likely pronunciation. They point out that the abbreviated form of the name is Yah (Jah in the Latinized form), as at Psalm 89:8 and in the expression Ha·lelu-Yah′ (meaning “Praise Jah, you people!”). (Ps 104:35; 150:1, 6)

Also, the forms Yehoh′, Yoh, Yah, and Ya′hu, found in the Hebrew spelling of the names Jehoshaphat, Joshaphat, Shephatiah, and others, can all be derived from Yahweh.

Greek transliterations of the name by early Christian writers point in a somewhat similar direction with spellings such as I·a·be′ and I·a·ou·e′, which, as pronounced in Greek, resemble Yahweh.

Still, there is by no means unanimity among scholars on the subject, some favoring yet other pronunciations, such as “Yahuwa,” “Yahuah,” or “Yehuah.”
Since certainty of pronunciation is not now attainable, there seems to be no reason for abandoning in English the well-known form “Jehovah” in favor of some other suggested pronunciation.

If such a change were made, then, to be consistent, changes should be made in the spelling and pronunciation of a host of other names found in the Scriptures:

  • Jeremiah would be changed to Yir·meyah′,
  • Isaiah would become Yeshaʽ·ya′hu, and
  • Jesus would be either Yehoh·shu′aʽ (as in Hebrew) or I·e·sous′ (as in Greek).

The purpose of words is to transmit thoughts; in English the name Jehovah identifies the true God, transmitting this thought more satisfactorily today than any of the suggested substitutes.

Why is a name important when discussing God or creation?

 “God” and “Father” are not distinctive. The title “God” is neither personal nor distinctive (one can even make a god of his belly; Php 3:19).

In the Hebrew Scriptures the same word (ʼElo·him′) is applied to Jehovah, the true God, and also to false gods, such as the Philistine god Dagon (Jg 16:23, 24; 1Sa 5:7) and the Assyrian god Nisroch. (2Ki 19:37)

For a Hebrew to tell a Philistine or an Assyrian that he worshiped “God [ʼElo·him′]” would obviously not have sufficed to identify the Person to whom his worship went.


The act of creating, or causing the existence of, someone or something. It can also refer to that which has been created or brought into existence.

The Hebrew ba·raʼ′ and the Greek kti′zo, both meaning “create,” are used exclusively with reference to divine creation.
Throughout the Scriptures Jehovah God is identified as the Creator. He is

  • “the Creator of the heavens, . . . the Former of the earth and the Maker of it.” (Isa 45:18)
  • He is “the Former of the mountains and the Creator of the wind” (Am 4:13) and is
  • “the One who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all the things in them.” (Ac 4:24; 14:15; 17:24) “God . . . created all things.” (Eph 3:9)

Jesus Christ recognized Jehovah as the One who created humans, making them male and female. (Mt 19:4; Mr 10:6) Hence, Jehovah is fittingly and uniquely called “the Creator.”—Isa 40:28.
It is because of God’s will that all things “existed and were created.” (Re 4:11)

Jehovah, who has existed for all time, was alone before creation had a beginning.—Ps 90:1, 2; 1Ti 1:17.

While Jehovah, who is a Spirit (Joh 4:24; 2Co 3:17), has always existed, that is not true of the matter of which the universe is made.

When creating the literal heavens and earth, Jehovah did not use preexistent material. This is clear from Genesis 1:1, which says: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” If matter had always existed, it would have been inappropriate to use the term “beginning” with reference to material things.

However, after creating the earth, God did form “from the ground every wild beast of the field and every flying creature of the heavens.” (Ge 2:19)

He also formed man “out of dust from the ground,” blowing into his nostrils the breath of life so that the man became a living soul.—Ge 2:7.

Appropriately Psalm 33:6 says: “By the word of Jehovah the heavens themselves were made, and by the spirit of his mouth all their army.”

While the earth was yet “formless and waste,” with “darkness upon the surface of the watery deep,” it was God’s active force that was moving to and fro over the surface of the waters. (Ge 1:2) Thus, God used his active force, or “spirit” (Heb., ru′ach), to accomplish his creative purpose.

The things he has created testify not only to his power but also to his Godship. (Jer 10:12; Ro 1:19, 20) And, as Jehovah “is a God, not of disorder, but of peace” (1Co 14:33), his creative work is marked with orderliness rather than chaos or chance.

Jehovah reminded Job that He had taken specific steps in founding the earth and barricading the sea and indicated that there exist “statutes of the heavens.” (Job 38:1, 4-11, 31-33) Furthermore, God’s creative and other works are perfect.—De 32:4; Ec 3:14.

Jehovah’s first creation was his “only-begotten Son” (Joh 3:16), “the beginning of the creation by God.” (Re 3:14)

This one, “the firstborn of all creation,” was used by Jehovah in creating all other things, those in the heavens and those upon the earth, “the things visible and the things invisible.” (Col 1:15-17)

John’s inspired testimony concerning this Son, the Word, is that “all things came into existence through him, and apart from him not even one thing came into existence,” and the apostle identifies the Word as Jesus Christ, who had become flesh. (Joh 1:1-4, 10, 14, 17)

As wisdom personified, this One is represented as saying, “Jehovah himself produced me as the beginning of his way,” and he tells of his association with God the Creator as Jehovah’s “master worker.” (Pr 8:12, 22-31)

In view of the close association of Jehovah and his only-begotten Son in creative activity and because that Son is “the image of the invisible God” (Col 1:15; 2Co 4:4), it was evidently to His only-begotten Son and master worker that Jehovah spoke in saying, “Let us make man in our image.”—Ge 1:26.

After creating his only-begotten Son, Jehovah used him in bringing the heavenly angels into existence. This preceded the founding of the earth, as Jehovah revealed when questioning Job and asking him: “Where did you happen to be when I founded the earth . . . when the morning stars joyfully cried out together, and all the sons of God began shouting in applause?” (Job 38:4-7)

It was after the creation of these heavenly spirit creatures that the material heavens and earth and all elements were made, or brought into existence. And, since Jehovah is the one primarily responsible for all this creative work, it is ascribed to him.—Ne 9:6; Ps 136:1, 5-9.

The Scriptures, in stating, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Ge 1:1), leave matters indefinite as to time. This use of the term “beginning” is therefore unassailable, regardless of the age scientists may seek to attach to the earthly globe and to the various planets and other heavenly bodies. The actual time of creation of the material heavens and earth may have been billions of years ago.

Amazing "Solar Generator" Is Like Having A Secret Power Plant Hidden In Your Home!

Posted on Updated on

This Article is brought to you via:  & Solutions From Science

Last train out to get off the grid?

Amazing “Solar Generator”
Is Like Having A
Secret Power Plant
Hidden In Your Home!

Solar Powered Backup System Provides Instant Electrical Power In Any Outage Or Disaster.
Even Better…, Backup Kit Produces An Endless Supply Of Electricity For Free!


Are You Ready For Unexpected Power Outages?

If you have ever wanted to have an emergency “backup” system that supplies continuous electrical power,

this will be the most important message you will ever read.

Here is why.

There is now a completely portable (and ultra-high efficient) solar power generator which produces up to 1800 watts of household electricity on demand when you need it most.

News of this “solar backup generator” (it’s the first “off-the-grid” breakthrough in 50 years) is spreading like wildfire all across the country!


  • The answer is easy. You see, this solar generator is extremely powerful and yet very simple to use.
  • It produces continuous electricity and runs with absolutely no noise whatsoever.
  • It emits no fumes. But the best part about the solar generator is that it…

Generates Free Electricity!

The unit then stores the power for your use when you need it.

We all face natural disasters, with hurricanes, tornadoes, snow and ice storms cutting off electrical power to millions of Americans each year.

Then there are man-made disasters and outages.

Blackouts and rolling brownouts are becoming common in many parts of the United States as our politicians herd us off into third-world status.

And never forget the possibility of a terrorist attack directed at a few of our nation’s power plants.

Since the nation’s power grids are all “connected,” crippling one plant starts a cascading downward spiral of darkness.

Your neighbors will be clueless when it finally does happen, expecting the government to “do something” to get their precious cable TV back on.

The truth is, we are extremely vulnerable to all kinds of meltdowns that can create temporary or even permanent electrical outages.

That’s why if you are one of the few Americans that have eyes to see and ears to hear with respect to the hard times ahead.

In fact, you can also expect rising electrical rates very soon, as promised by the new administration. That’s why you need to…

Have A Backup System In Place!

The Solar generator kit consists of three main components which work together to create a very efficient home power plant.

  • The massive “generator-backup”,
  • the high efficiency solar panel,
  • and the charge controller.

In fact, when you compare a solar generator to a gas generator, the difference is pretty remarkable. Here’s why.

  • First, gas generators make an incredible amount of racket… if you can even get them started. I say that because in this part of the country (Northern Illinois), the time of year we are likely to lose our electricity is in the winter, during an ice or snow storm.

Generally the wind breaks the power lines, which get covered with ice and snow. Typically, when you lose power here, you go to the garage, roll out the generator and start pulling the cord. You pull and pull some more, all because your generator has been sitting in the cold and the carburetor is playing hard to get. This is not a lot of fun in the dark.

  • Another reason to avoid gas generators is that you just can’t run one in your house. The fumes from a gas generator force you to run it outside and rely on a lot of cords coming through windows or doors to bring the power inside. Again, this is assuming you can get your gas generator started in the first place.
  • But the number one reason you don’t want to be caught in a time of crisis with a gas generator is…

Gas Stations Can’t Pump Gas Without Electricity!

Yes.  It’s true.  When the power goes out, you’re left with whatever gas you have on hand because the gas station pumps all run on electricity.  A few gallons stored in a gas can means a little electricity for a little while, then it’s quickly back to black.

Look… I could go on and on about life without electricity and what nightmare gas generators can be. But here’s the bottom line….

Solutions From Science is offering an amazing power generating system that can provide plenty of electrical power in the event of an outage or emergency. And the best part is that you can have the power safely in your house.

It’s the perfect emergency backup for troubled times at any location.       When the lights do go out at your house… you’ll  be darn glad you didn’t hesitate.


And, Solutions From Science can put one of these “backup” Solar Generators in your hands very quickly and affordably so you’’ll be prepared in any crisis that comes down the road.

A True Breakthrough In Home Power Generation!

Let me try to explain the features and benefits of our Solar Generator as simply as possible.

If I could bring one over to your house and let you start plugging in appliances, you would immediately understand what all the fuss is about.

But I can’t do that.

Here are some of the reasons you’’ll want a solar generator:

1)Maximum power in minimum time.

– I cannot emphasize this enough.  The solar generator can be set up in just a few minutes. 

Then, all you have to do is start plugging things in. 

It will run both AC & DC appliances anywhere… anytime


 2)Back up power when you need it most

– It’s called a “solar backup” because it’s designed to come to your rescue when power trouble starts and your lights go out.

Run a small refrigerator (high efficient ones are best) to keep your food from going bad or even run a sump pump in the basement if you have to get rid of excess water.










3)Portable Power

– If the going ever gets too tough where you are and you decide to “get the heck out of dodge,”

you simply throw it in the car and take off to a safer destination, knowing you have power wherever you go.


4)Replaces gas generators

– No noise, no fumes, no maintenance and most importantly… no fuel required

Simply roll it to whatever location needs the power and start plugging in appliances.

It has a massive maintenance-free battery as well as an indestructible outer case.  (It weighs about 65 pounds.)

It’s a solid piece of equipment that will last a lifetime


5)Generates permanent power

 – The unit provides 1800 watts of electricity at peak power.  That’s enough to run many appliances in your house. 

The unit stores power and makes it available when you need it. 

The generator is recharged constantly by the sun allowing you to use the system and charging it at the same time. 

Many users choose to keep appliances plugged in permanently to reduce electrical costs and help pay for the unit




6)Multiple uses

– You can use your solar backup to run essential appliances when emergencies arise.

You can recharge phones; run shortwave radios, televisions, lights, fire place or furnace fans, as well as computers and printers.

Plus, if you need to work in the woods at the cabin or in a boat, you can use the solar backup to run power tools, trimmers, blowers and coffee makers.


7)Plug and play means instant power

– The emergency backup system comes ready to go.

Just start plugging in your favorite household essentials…



  8)Life-Saving Power When you need it most

– Great for powering aquariums, CPAP machines, small refrigerators/freezers, alarm clocks, security systems,

whatever you need to live comfortably when the power goes out.





9) Emergency Backup Power for Communications

Access the latest weather changes even when the rest of the neighborhood looses power.

Powers AM/FM radios, televisions, shortwave radios, cell phones, computers, and other telecommunication devices.



You’’ll feel a whole lot safer knowing you have a solar generator when the unexpected occurs. It could be in a storm, riot or meltdown. Unlike most “sheep-like” Americans, when the power goes out, you’’ll be ready.

In fact, if you’re like most Solar Generator owners, you’’ll even sleep a little better knowing you still have a very reliable source of electrical power.

How much is a “plug and play” Solar Generator?

Well… One pastor friend of mine told me he couldn’t even put a price on his backup system. For him it was peace of mind.

Loving Freedom

Blog » Natural Ways To Keep Fleas out Of Your Home

Posted on



Fleas, as pestilent as they are, are actually fascinating creatures. One of their best known “super powers” is their ability to jump hundreds of times their own body length. If we could perform a similar feat, we would be able to jump over buildings with ease. Looking up the flea on Wikipedia, I learned that their jump is not caused by muscular action, but by “energy stored in a protein named resilin”. [1] Fleas also have very tough little bodies, which are amazingly crush-resistant for their size.

Another thing I did not know about fleas was they only spend around…….. see more at link below.
