The best show...EVER!!!

Yes, it is common knowledge to those who know me well that on Thursday nights, no one calls, no one comes by and no one interrupts my all time favorite show, LOST. I thought I would start providing a little scoop/spoiler info on the blog for anyone who is addicted to the show like I am.
The picture above shows a screen shot of the door that Ben went through in the last episode. According to the heiroglyphics and Wikipedia, basically it translates into "to summon time". So, did Ben travel in time to Tunisia and meet up with Sayid when he went through the door, or did he summon the smoke monster?? Or both??? You be the judge.
Here is a list of some intriguing rumors about the show that may or may not be true. Can't wait 'till Thursday!!
I have had 2 inside sources corrobate what is generally going on the rest of the season, some of it is just snippets of info, while some of it follows more of a storyline
First off Centric-List and what happens in flashes
Episode 9 - Sayid (FF)- Finding Nadia, her death, Ben's recrutiment of him, his first time killing for Ben
Episode 10 - Kate (FF)- Events after Eggtown - shows her raising aaron and him questioning where his father is, why she doesn't want to see jack anymore, and her getting approached by Abbandon asking for what really happened on the island
Episode 11- Ben (FB) - Ben getting beat up in school in the real world and generally being a depressed kid before he comes to the island, annie becoming his first real friend on the island, shows their relationship developing, including her parents demanding they stay away from each other, shows her becoming first woman to die in childbirth, and then shows ben organizing alex being stolen from danielle
Episode 12/13 - Oceanic 6 (FF) -Primarily Jack, but will show the media circus when they all return, them corrobating their story, and then them going their separate ways, will then move forward to follow jack's depression, and then show who is in the coffin.
General island action
People from the freigher shot karl and danielle
The people left on the island (hence the reason "they have to go back") - Jin, Claire, Sawyer, Locke, Desmond, Rose, Bernard
The barracks are burned down and are done as a location on the show
The people left on the island end up at the temple with the rest of the surviving others.-
Miles dies by the end of the season-
Daniel and Charlotte will be back next season-
The Frozen Donkey Wheel? - No idea, but they did confirm that the last scene of the season isn't a cliffhanger like they said in the podcast. The last scene is Jack and Kate (holding Aaron), looking back at the island from a helicopter and Jack saying "now we can never go back"

Happy Earth Day

Earth Day Quiz

1. T or F: You can use your mom's food processor and old panty hose to make recycled paper at home.

True! "You Can Make Paper" is a Beakman and Jax "You Can" experiment. But remember to read the directions and ask permission first!

2. T or F: Taking a bath instead of a shower makes you more clean.

False. Baths do use three times as much water, though.

You Can Help Conserve Our Water ResourcesAt school and at home, you can help protect our water resources.

Turn off the tap in your bathroom while you brush your teeth.

Take shorter showers. (Get a timer and time yourself.)

Don't let the water run constantly while you're washing or rinsing dishes.

Fill a pitcher with tap water and put it in the fridge, rather than running the tap every time you want a cold drink!

Clean sidewalks and driveways with a broom--not the water hose!

Water your lawn in the early morning to avoid evaporation.

Repair dripping faucets.

Place a layer of mulch around trees and plants to retain water.

First blog, ever.

Back in the day, I think this would be equalled to writing your "BFF" a note and then taking meticulous time to fold it into an envelope or some other creation. Then, you would proudly chunk it across the room to your friend who is assigned the seat as far away from you as possible.

In trying to think of what I should blog about, only one thing came to mind. My new-found love. Nope, I'm not talking about the mascarpone brownies (but I will be trying those). Ansel Adams once said, "Sometimes, I do get to places just when God is ready for me to click the shutter." It is a true wonder to me how I could have gone so long without knowing how much I enjoyed photography. I am truly humbled by the support and encouragement I have received since starting this journey. I hope it continues for a very long time.
