Sorry, I just could not let this go…Celebrating Perverts Month…

On my dashboard, the back-end of Calling-all-RushBabes today there is a link that says “Celebrate Pride Month with WordPress”.

Needless to say, I won’t be clicking on that particular link!

For some reason, I can’t imagine anyone being proud of being a pervert (homosexual); essentially a mistake of nature.  And no, the homosexual lobby will never get me to admit that homosexuality is not a perversion of Nature, a denial of what humans should be.  Humans are designed by their Maker to reproduce, one man and one woman joining to produce little descendants, to carry the Human Race forward into the future.  The Lavender Mafia would try to make normal, heterosexual people, admit that they are the wrong to think of themselves as normal.  Try as they might, the Homosexual Lobby will not succeed in making their behavior normal, or “defining deviancy down”.

This site will never, ever celebrate “Perverts Month”.

Photo Challenge: Lines, by Man and by Nature

When I took this picture of the forward passenger deck of the Washington State Ferry Puyallup, the lines just drew me in.  Curved lines, straight lines, against the horizon line in the distance.

And then there are the lines created in the sky by Nature-clouds which you would normally think of as curved line up in ranks above you.

Weathered, Creations of Man, and of Nature

This building was originally built in the twelfth century, in England.  The Abbey of Bury St. Edmunds.  Much of it has weathered away, with the help of the local people, who often used the fallen stones for new buildings.  But even the ruins are beautiful.

This spectacular example of Nature’s Creation, weathered, is Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah.

Funny, that natural arch almost looks like it could have been carved by men.  But no, we mimic nature, or try to.

Celebrate our Beautiful Country

Celebrate our Beautiful Country

Every day, I give thanks to have been born in the Greatest Country on God’s Green Earth.  Our country is one of the most beautiful on Earth, with terrain ranging from blazing hot deserts, to grassy prairies, to high snow-capped mountains, to chains of beautiful blue lakes.  The American people are the most generous in the world, voluntarily supporting thousands of charities in the US and doling out the largest share of ANY country, of aid to needy folks in foreign nations.  The Left in the US likes to portray everyone other than themselves as racist, sexist, bigoted (fill in the blank)-phobes, who are only out for themselves, literally taking food from the mouths of needy babies everywhere.  But we’re not.  So, herewith, is a celebration of the beauty of the United States of America, and its people.

Deception Pass, looking East

Western Washington, this is Deception Pass, looking East from the (scary) Deception Pass Bridge.  That’s Mount Baker in the distance.  You can see why Washington’s nickname is the Evergreen State.

Boats in Friday Harbor, on San Juan Island, in the Straits of Juan de Fuca (separating the US from Canada).  Millions of families in Washington own boats, from simple rowboats and small motorboats to huge yachts, and sailboats.  Puget Sound is crowded with boats on any sunny summer day.  I know a rabbi who has seven children, and his big extravagance was a motor boat, on which he and his family traveled whenever they could get away.

Diablo Lake from Overlook on Highway 20

This is Diablo Lake, in the North Cascades.  It’s about a one-hour drive there from our house, and we love to go on a day trip when the weather is nice.  Out of view is Diablo Dam, which provides hydroelectric power to the Greater Seattle area.  I have always marveled at the ingenuity it took for people to design and build a hydroelectric dam.

And the people.  This is a crowd of accordionists, at the Gazebo in Leavenworth, Washington, at the Leavenworth International Accordion Celebration.  Players ranging in age from 7 to 77, playing music for the sheer joy of it.  And there is as much variety in the accordions as in the players.

The Eastern part of Washington State is much drier than the Western part, its landscape showing the effects of receding glaciers, and ancient floods.  Millions of years ago, this was a giant waterfall.  Nature sculpts for us to admire.

Even in the harshest desert climates, plants grow, and feed birds, insects, and other small animals.  This is the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix.

IMG_1674There are places where people like to gather, to place their bets, and to just marvel at the beauty and power of thoroughbred horses.  The Sport of Kings, indeed.  Emerald Downs, near Tacoma, Washington.

Of course, a celebration of America would not be complete without a stop at the Grand Canyon.  Think about it.  Through millions of years, the Colorado River carved the Grand Canyon.  Remarkable what running water, and time, can accomplish.

A true National Treasure, Hillsdale College in Michigan.  Teaching Truth, Defending Liberty, since 1844.

Another National Treasure.  Saint Joseph’s Polish Catholic Church, Camden, New Jersey.  Celebrated its 120th anniversary in 2012.  Polish-language Mass is still celebrated here daily, by the Polish priest.  The parishioners and former parishioners at Saint Joe’s have supported it, and kept it maintained in all its glory for a very long time.

Proof that even amateurs can make it to Carnegie Hall.  We went in the summer of 2006, and played Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, and William Grant Still’s Afro-American Symphony.  You can spot me right in front of the tympani.

I just couldn’t let this opportunity get away.   Me, in my Rush Limbaugh Club G’itmo t-shirt, in front of the Democratic Party booth, Fourth of July in Albany, New York.  Sometimes, if you search on RushBabe on Google, this picture appears!

Weekly Photo Challenge: States of Mind: in Awe of Nature

I love going to the mountains, God’s Big Construction Project (and also destruction project).  These mountains, in Zion National Park in Utah, used to be at the bottom of a big shallow sea.  Notice the many layers of rock, first deposited over millions of years, then thrust into the sky.
