Their humorous performance of 'I Want It That Way', by the Backstreet Boys, made me laugh; their facial expressions are so FUNNY!! Totally delightful! Since it has already been viewed on YouTube over 11,898,430 times you've probably viewed and enjoyed them, already! Enjoy them here with me again, or for your first time!

Haven't you ever found yourself joyfully and, sometimes, goofily/humorously singing and dancing along to your favorite tunes? I have!! It's a great way to lighten up a day, relieve stress and/or take a break! Go ahead, sing and dance along with these guys. You will enjoy it!

EUReKA: A Sci-Fi Town of Technological Breakthroughs


EUReKA is an American science fiction television series that premiered on the Syfy channel on July 18, 2006. Since then three, full seasons have aired. The show is set in a fictional town called EUReKA in the Pacific Northwest (USA) inhabited, almost entirely, by geniuses and scientists that live in a top-secret government-run town. Nearly everyone in EUReKA works for Global Dynamics, a huge advanced-research facility responsible for the development of all major technological breakthroughs in the last 50 years. Each episode features a mysterious accidental or intentional misuse of technology, which is then solved by the town's sheriff, Jack Carter with the help of town scientists. ~ Wikipedia

To learn more about the town, visit Eureka. Below, I've included a video of EUReKA out-takes, a Eureka video widget and a Eureka trivia widget for you to enjoy, too! If you're a Eureka fan like me, you probably already know that the series returns Friday, July 9th on the Syfy Channel.

Trail of Tears Trailer - @trailtearsmovie

500 Nations'Trail of Tears' by Soaring Eagle Entertainment

Hello, Everyone! This post features, Trail of Tears, an upcoming movie about the removal of many Native American people from their homelands in what we now call, the United States of America (USA). I learned of this movie from my fellow @DelynMiche Tweeter, @trailtearsmovie.

In 1830, Congress passed the 'Indian Removal Act' and its purpose, intent and actions are obvious by its name. The Native Americans attempted to battle this Act in the colonial Supreme Court. However, the Act prevailed. The Trail of Tears was the relocation and movement of Native Americans, including many members of the Cherokee, Creek, Seminole, and Choctaw nations, among others in the United States, from their homelands to Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma) in the western United States. The phrase, 'The Trail of Tears' originated from a description of the removal of the Choctaw Nation in 1831. Many Native Americans suffered from exposure, disease and starvation while en route to the new destinations chosen for them; many died, including 4,000 of the 15,000 relocated Cherokee.

This process of cultural transformation (proposed by George Washington and Henry Knox) gained momentum, especially toward the Cherokee and Choctaw. Andrew Jackson was the first U.S. President to implement removal of the Native Americans with the passage of the Indian Removal Act of 1830. In 1831, the Choctaw were the first to be removed and they became the model for all other removals. After the Choctaw, the Seminole were removed in 1832, the Creek in 1834, then the Chickasaw in 1837 and finally, the Cherokee in 1838.

After these mass removals, some Native Americans did manage to remain in their ancient homelands - the Choctaw are found in Mississippi, the Seminole in Florida, the Creek in Alabama and the Cherokee in North Carolina. A limited number of Europeans and Africans (usually as slaves) accompanied the Native American nations on the trek westward. By 1837, 46,000 Native Americans from these southeastern Native American Indian nations had been removed from their homelands, thereby opening 25 million acres for settlement by whites.

Just like 'The Holocaust' and 'Slavery in the USA' (and everywhere else), the 'Indian Removal Act' should never have been allowed to prevail! What a shame that, often, humans are another human's worst threat to a good, blessed life.

This trailer/video features the forthcoming movie, Trail of Tears, by Soaring Eagle Entertainment. One of my favorite lines from this video is, "They say that Christopher Columbus discovered America. But, we we already here." Another favorite, so telling of another true reason for the 'Indian Removal Act', "When gold was discovered on our lands... They removed our people."

Thank-you, @trailtearsmovie for sharing your movie trailer/video with us!

Something Divine for This Horizon


John Kepsimelis, U.S. Coast Guard Image: Clouds of smoke billow up from controlled burns taking place in the Gulf of Mexico on May 19, 2010. The controlled burns were set to reduce the amount of oil in the water following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

These three videos share the story, as told to 60 MINUTES, of how the BP oil-drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico, 'Deepwater Horizon', was destroyed on April 20, 2010, causing the worst oil spill in U.S. history, to date.

This is what bad decisions fueled by greed has caused; major human-error! What's worse than the lack of correct actions to prevent this fatal blowout is the insufficient actions (prior to June 5, 2010) that have been going on to stop the leak of oil. Based on what we're hearing from the people that worked at this drilling rig, a lack of good, sound wisdom was prevalent regarding the malfunctions that led to this blowout. Now, we don't have the luxury of time for good, sound wisdom to kick-in to the minds of the people trying to stop this leak. We need the immediate intervention of our maker/our Creator. He made Heaven, Earth (including the ocean and sea) and everything and everyone. We need to ask Him (if haven't already done so) to immediately enlighten everyone involved in:

  • trying to stop the leak,
  • cleaning up the spilled oil in the water and the soil/beaches,
  • saving the creatures (birds, fish & others), and
  • protecting humans from the residue (in water, in food, in air/atmosphere)

so that they/we get our efforts right, and therefore, tremendously effective each time. They/we need Divine intervention and Divine wisdom to handle this major, human-error. The Creator still loves us/humans, even when such human-error has taken place. Furthermore, He's willing to impart the Divine wisdom they/we need for this situation, as well. I hope that you all will join me in asking our Creator for His help. I imagine He's got a 'fix' for everything humans mess-up! Take care.
