In the United States, the Homeland Security Advisory System was a color-coded terrorism threat advisory scale. The different levels triggered specific actions by federal agencies and state and local governments, and they affected the level of security at some airports and other public facilities. It was often called the “terror alert level” by the U.S. media.
The system was replaced on April 27, 2011, with a new system called the National Terrorism Advisory System.
Red, the highest level, meant “severe risk of terrorist attacks.” The lowest level, green, meant “low risk of terrorist attacks.” Between those were blue (guarded risk), yellow (significant) and orange (high). The nation has generally lived in the yellow and orange range

This is one of my favorite blogs.
For some reason, I’m not able to reblog.
The button is there but doesn’t work.
I thought I’d found another way to share but it doesn’t work to my liking.
Will have to share with you in this fashion, as before.
Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another,
What! You too? I thought I was the only one.
Brothers and sisters are as close as hands and feet.

UPDATE ON THE FOSTERS
We’ve had FatCat and SkinnyCat with us for almost five months now.
They are separated from our cats, Kitty and Frida.
They took well to their headquarters but not to our cats.
These ‘Fosters’ are amazing cats.
They are sweet, lovable, adorable, quiet and have beautiful souls.
The time has come for them to leave our home.
“Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are god.”
Not FatCat but sure looks and acts like him!
“One cat just leads to another.”

Two sides of reality!! … ~ abhumanaex
On one end – excellence, ambition, discipline, defining what you want to be and working towards it, goals, decisions, structure, control, action, obsession (hold on)
On the other – acceptance, peace, polymorphous selfhood, beingness, letting it flow, spontaneity, appreciation of what is not what you want it to be, release (let go)
In this tension – a life.
