As long as you love yourself nothing else should matter. Love is warm and fuzzy but love shouldn't always be expected. Love is special and cannot be given at will. You cannot love someone just like that, love grows with time. Love forms a bond between two people, indescribable and overwhelming. True love does not exist, love is the utopia of our lives and we all crave it without knowing what it truly is. Even if we think we love someone we could in fact just like them.
Love is when two individuals combine there lives to potentially form one special world. This world is like a tree it starts as a seed and forms a tree, as the tree grows it grows roots and becomes more stable so nothing will stand in its way. Sometimes the tree can be cut and potentially the love dies away, this tree could produces other seeds and these seeds can use the knowledge from the mother tree and form stronger bonds/love with others. So just because we don't have love, it doesn't mean our children should miss out. - Dylan Aplin

I was browsing through Youtube and I came across these clips, give them a watch. These clips are very artistic and shows just how talented one can be.

My biggest fear of all

A praying mantis, or praying mantid, is the common name for an insect of the order Mantodea. Often mistakenly spelled preying mantis (a tempting mistake, as they are notoriously predatory) they are in fact named for the typical "prayer-like" stance. The word mantis derives from the Greek word mantis for prophet or fortune teller. The preferred pluralization is mantids, though there is some usage of mantes or mantises. The world's largest praying mantis was recorded at 45cm (18") long, in Southern China, in 1929.

Like all insects, a praying mantis has a three segmented body, with a head, thorax and abdomen. The abdomen is elongate and covered by the wings in adults. Females have strong and large cerci. The first thoracic segment, the prothorax is elongated and from it arises the modified foreleg.

Freedom is the ability to act without restraint, or the ability to have access to particular resources without constraint. Defined thusly, 'freedom' is a broad notion, not necessarily covering the same field as 'free will'. The philosopher Isaiah Berlin thus drew an important distinction between "freedom from" (negative freedom) and "freedom to" (positive freedom). For example, freedom from oppression and freedom to develop one's potential. Both these types of freedom are in fact reflected in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

In the context of internal control, freedom is also known as self-determination, individual sovereignty, or autonomy.

The protection of interpersonal freedom can be the object of a social and political investigation, while the metaphysical foundation of inner freedom is a philosophical and psychological question. Both forms of freedom come together in each individual as the internal and external values mesh together in a dynamic compromise and power struggle; the society fighting for power in defining the values of individuals and the individual fighting for societal acceptance and respect in establishing one's own values in it.

In those with spiritual beliefs, freedom may encompass the peaceful acceptance of reality. The theological question of freedom generally focuses on reconciling the experience or reality of inner freedom with the omnipotence of the divine.

Russells Amazingly Fantastic Pumpkin Soup

Russells Amazingly Fantastic Pumpkin Soup

Get about 1/4 of a pumpkin and one potato and chop them up as fine as you can be bothered, place in a pot with just enough water to cover them.
Then just simmer them for about an hour uncovered, making sure it doesn't boil dry - do it over a low heat.

Then just mash them straight in the pot, and add whatever seasonings you want
I suggest all purpose seasoning, paprika, and italian herbs - Yum!

Lady Grey is a proprietary branded tea variety and registered trademark of Twinings. Lady Grey is the pair-tea of Earl Grey and includes everything that is contained within Earl Grey tea along with Seville orange, lemon, bergamot and petals of cornflowers.
At the time when Lady Grey tea was first made it was believed the addition of fruits would counteract improper impulses that tea was widely believed to have upon the female temperament.
