Indian Lore & Tradition: Indian Tribes
Click for Boncarbo, Colorado Forecast ARAPAHO
In the beginning, according to Arapaho accounts, the First Pipe Keeper floated on a limitless body of water with the Flat Pipe. He fasted and prayed to the Creator, who inspired him to send the duck to search beneath the water's surface. The duck emerged with a little bit of dirt, which the First Pipe Keeper put on the Pipe. Then he sent the turtle to the bottom, and it too returned with dirt. The First Pipe Keeper put this dirt on the Pipe and blew it off toward the four directions. In doing so, he created the earth. He then made the sun and moon, man and woman, vegetable and animal life, followed by day and night and the four seasons. He then taught the first people the religious rites they would need. The duck and the turtle were placed with the pipe into a bundle. The Arapaho - descendants of that first man and woman - have been responsible for them ever since, symbols of the creation and their custody of a sacred trust.

U-boat is a shortened form of the German submarine's full name of Unterseeboot, which means “undersea boat.”

In Modesto, California, Steven Richard King was arrested for trying to hold up a Bank of America branch without a weapon. King used a thumb and a finger to simulate a gun, but unfortunately, he failed to keep his hand in his pocket. (hellllllooooooo!)

Article Submitted by: J. Valdez(Coyote) Raton, New Mexico

Imagine this happening to you.
One Sunday morning during service, a 2,000 member congregation was surprised to see two men enter, both covered from head to toe in black and carrying submachine guns. One of the men proclaimed, "Anyone willing to take a bullet for Christ remain where you are." Immediately, the choir fled, the deacons fled, and most of the congregation fled. Out of the 2,000 there only remained around 20. The man who had spoken took off his hood, looked at the preacher and said "Okay Pastor, I got rid of all the hypocrites. Now you may begin your service. Have a nice day!" And the two men turned and walked out.

Too deep not to pass on...

  • Funny how simple it is for people to trash God ... and then wonder why the world's going to hell.
  • Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.
  • Funny how everyone wants to go to heaven provided they do not have to believe, think, say, or do anything the Bible says.
  • Funny or is it scary?
  • Funny how someone can say "I believe in God" but still follow Satan (who, by the way, also "believes"in God).
  • Funny how you can send a thousand 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.
  • Funny how the lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene pass freely through cyberspace, but the public discussion of Jesus is suppressed in the school and work place.
  • Funny, isn't it? Funny how someone can be so fired up for Christ on Sunday, but be an invisible Christian the rest of the week.
  • Are you laughing?
  • Funny how when you go to forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it to them.
  • Funny how I can be more worried about what other people think of me than what God thinks of me.
  • Are you thinking?
  • Will you share this with people you care about? Or not?


Oil of Evening Primrose and PMS :
If your PMS or PMDD symptoms are not debilitating or you are against taking medication, there are alternatives that you may want to consider in consultation with your physician. We've discussed several of these in our recent tips. Another option is using oil of evening primrose. Oil from the seeds of this North American wildflower contains an essential fatty acid that may be effective for breast swelling and tenderness.
NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!

Download Red Hat Linux.......The Lamborghini of Operating Systems!! Makes Windows look like a Model T!

Linux Note: When downloading a linux .tar/ .gz or .rpm file, It is sometimes necessary to hold down the shift key while clicking on the file you want to download.

Windows launches slower the more programs run automatically on start-up. Move programs out of your StartUp folder into a new folder named StartUp Holds. Or remove entries you may find on the LOAD= or RUN= line in the WIN.INI file. (Open WIN.INI from your WINDOWS folder using Notepad.) You can also place a semicolon at the head of either line to prevent Windows from reading it while preserving your previous settings. FREEWARE:

  • 1 pound Mussels, cleaned
  • 1/2 cup Beer
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons Parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Green onions, chopped
Place the beer, garlic, parsley and green onions in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add the mussels and cover. Cook until the shells begin to open (about 2-3 minutes). Serve warm.

Bourbon Balls:

  • 3 cups vanilla wafers, crushed
  • 2/3 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 cup nuts, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. light corn syrup
  • 2 Tbsp. cocoa
  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • Extra confectioner's sugar
