I'm so happy that I found this community! How do people feel about our Pope Benedict XVI stepping down? I was very surprised at first; but, I believe he must do what he feels is best. He's been the Pope since 2005; it didn't seem that long, but it really is impressive since he's I believe the oldest person to become the Pope! I will miss him dearly. I have loved this Pope especially for his softspoken manner & his great compassion & distinct sweetness; all at the same time, he has boldly & uncompromisingly proclaimed Truths forthright in spite of much opposition & backlash.

I was very surprised too when Pope Benedict XVI said he was going to retire. I do believe he is acting like a true leader with his courage to step aside because he knows his body can not handle the stress of that job. I continue to pray for him and that the Holy Spirit enters the hearts and minds of the other Cardinals to select a great Pope to step up to the many challenges he will face.

Hi, My name is Laura. I have studied for the Jewelry Design & Repair Course. I had a 96%, but I did not complete the projects. My Dad passed away & I've not been well for quite a while. However, I am doing better, & I am concentrating on my writing of Children's Literature; Writing Online; & I'm taking a new course from the Sheffield School of Design entitled: Jewelry Design: Beading & Wire-Working. This course is much easier than the course with Penn Foster; but, it is all about Beading intead of metal-Working; soldering; ring-sizing; bezel-making etc. I am gaining more confidence with the Beading Course (because I'm more familiar with Beading); and hopefully in the not-too-distant future, I will perhaps be able to send in another $75, & actually get my Penn Foster Diploma! I want to come up with my own line of jewelry & open a store on Etsy.com; plus, have my own Web site. I am determined to come up with a completely different line of jewelry than anyone elses; so, it will be very unique! This is my goal. I'm still thinking about what I could do. Perhaps I could incorporate two or 3 mediums together to create something totally different, & very attractive. So, I will go on with my brainstorming & I know that in time I will settle upon the answer! I would like to say Hello to Claudia; and, I see that you are a very prolific painter! I think that is fantastic & I like many things you've created & posted. I'll let you know next time which paintings I admire most & why. I wanted to include some really simple stretch bracelet photos that I made with plastic Pony beads (Saint Patrick's Day & Easter) & some Halloween bracelets that I used expensive material Artist's glass beads;Swarovski Crystals; Gold-plated Memory-Wire; @ Green Dichroic Glass Beads; 2 round Gold Filled Glitter beads etc. I spent over $80 in supplies for these Halloween bracelets. They are very simple; but, I designed them myself. It's really great to be able to talk to creative people on here; and, it's not so bad having a small number at first! Let me know what you think. Thanks!

The President is Breaking his Own Definition of "The Separation of Church & State." He wants us To Leave Our Religious Faith Out of Any And All Politics & the Public Square. However, What is The Universal Church? We Believe in One God... Church; Temple; Mosque; Synagogue etc. Is the Universal Church a Building? No. It is Made up of Individual Persons. The State Cannot Violate Their Separation of "Church" & State by Ordering the Universal Church (individuals to violate their own religious & deeply held convictions-Their Faith)! He is therefore making himself The Head of the Universal Church-A State Run Church-A National Religion-Abortion; Euthanasia; Sterilization etc. ATHEISM-THERE IS NO GOD; EXCEPT WHOEVER IS IN CHARGE IS NOW god. "YOU WILL DO WHAT I SAY-I'LL GIVE YOU ONE YEAR TO COMPLY!" The State is entirely Separated From The "Church" & From Putting It's Hand in The Cookie Jar of "Church" Laws & Beliefs. "Excuse me, Sir. You are Breaking Your Own "Law" & Definition of 'The Separation of Church and State.' You Have No Standing Nor Power To Dictate To The "Church;' the World's Major (& minor) Religions." Notice the Deafening Silence of the Parroting of "The Separation of Church & State." Separating the Church from the State is the 1st Step in The Communist Manifesto. Communism is The Worst Enemy of God on the Face of This Earth. "If Mankind does Not Repent, Russia Will Spread Her Errors Across the World & Several Nations Will Be Annhilated."-The Blessed Mother-Our Lady of Fatima, Portugal 1917.

Story
Introduction
I am a writer who attended the University of Bridgeport, in Connecticut. I received a BA in English Literature with a Minor in Modern Languages; French & Spanish respectively, in 1988. I am also an aspiring Jewelry Designer/Maker & wish to start my own business. I love to read more than anything in the world. My favorite book is The Hobbit by J.R. R. Tolkien & also the trilogy The Lord of the Rings by the same author. I guess I love these books so much because, like Bilbo Baggins, I've underestimated myself! Little people Can do great things! Thank God I've found my Gandalf who I'll go on many adventures with in the near future! My greatest drive in life is to learn new things & to help other people! I'm interested in probably too many things at once. For my entire life I have been studying something; most often more subjects than one. I am very interested in Digital Photography; but "digital" photography is something new to me! I am a Catholic, a Conservative (although I can put myself in the shoes of the other side & even argue for it). I attended Walden University Online for an MPA (Master of Public Administration); but, even though I had a 3.86 GPA, I could not complete the degree in the allotted time period. I really want to finish my Masters or a similar degree! I am very interested in current events; but not only in the USA, but in the entire world. It's hard for me because I think I care too much about other countries & people if there is such a thing as caring too much! I love Rocks, Minerals, Fossils, & Seashells-Geology too! I want to learn about Physics. Oh, forgot to say that I am an inventor; however, I've not had the money to have my inventions made up (about $3,000 each), and I have 5 of them. They would help people all over the world too. So, if anyone wants to help with $ upfront, I'd give them 1/2 of my royalties! They must be a caring person & want to help others. I love music! I played the trumpet (my favorite) but had to switch to the alto sax because of the way my palette Was shaped before my braces were taken off. Anyway, I Love ELTON JOHN; PAUL MCCARTNEY & WINGS; the EAGLES; FLEETWOOD MAC; NEAL DIAMOND- I LOVE YOU; AEROSMITH; KISS; ROB THOMAS; LADY ANTEBELLUM; JOSH GROBAN; STING; PHIL COLLINS; BILLY JOEL; STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN & DOUBLE TROUBLE; ROBERT PLANT-I guess this list could go on & on. I'm a regular, down-to-Earth person; but, my head is always in the clouds so to speak. I'm a very Charismatic Catholic Christian. I am willing to be any nice person's friend; no matter what differences we have; political, religious, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, nationality; and yes, I have Atheist friends also! Anyone who has AIDS, or any other affliction; you are my friend too! I CARE! Oh, by the way; I'm Blackfeet, Cheyenne (both Native American tribes), & French Canadian; could be Irish also! I sure hope so.
