About Me

Live Your Life - so the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their views, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a stranger if in a lonely place. Show respect to all people, but grovel to none. When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies in yourself. Touch not the poisonous firewater that makes wise ones turn to fools and robs them of their visions. When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home. -Tecumseh

Would the nation be better off if the south would go away?

Would you personally prefer it if the south would just quietly go away?

World's Largest Emerald Up for Auction

By Joanna Douglas, Shine Fashion and Beauty Editor | Fashion 17 hours ago

A 57,000-carat emerald, which is said to be the world's largest, will be sold on January 28 at Western Star Auctions in British Columbia, Canada. The giant jewel weighs 11.5 kilograms and is around 12 inches long.
On Monday, the gem was appraised at $1.15 million since it is only a rough cut stone. But Western Star Auctions owner Mike Odenbach told Huff Post Canada he thinks it could fetch more at auction. "It's not unusual for gemstones to sell a lot higher than their appraised value, just depending on who wants to possess the largest emerald in the world," he said. Odenbach described the dark green emerald as "nothing short of spectacular."
The emerald was discovered in Brazil and cut in India. Rare gem dealer Regan Reany of Calgary got an email about the stone and thought it was too good to be true. But the emerald is, in fact, very real and heading to Kelowna, British Columbia with armed security. The auction house has ensured the jewel will be heavily guarded until the auction later this month.
"The gemstone is named 'Teodora' and rough translation is 'God's Gift,'" Odenbach told Huff Post. "To me we're being given an opportunity to expose ourselves internationally as an auction company that can handle items like this. You know, it really does feel like a gift."
