Dona Nobis Pacem 2011

We are participating in November 4th's  BlogBlast for Peace 2011 - a worldwide blogging event to promote peace begun in 2006.  Like the quote says, if enough of us dream this dream of peace, it will become reality!  So dream your dream of peace with us!

All we are saying is give peace a chance.  ~ John Lennon

Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one. ~ John Lennon

 If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace. ~ John Lennon

If someone thinks that love and peace is a cliche that must have been left behind in the Sixties, that's his problem. Love and peace are eternal.  ~ John Lennon

Devil Cats and Shape Shifters....

Georgie and friends
Bats, cats , spiders and pumpkins..Halloween is filled with scary how about one more scary story to top off our week long Halloween celebration?

Chica here, in my She-Devil outfit trying to lure Joey into my deadly clutches.  I will do the honors of the tale today! 

You have all heard of shapeshifters - witches who were believed to be able to shift their shape into that of an animal, usually of a cat, to carry out their evil deeds. the Tomb of Lady Ann Smith of Edmondthorpe, Leicesterhire, who died in 1652, her statue bears a strange red stain on its wrist.  Tradition says she was a witch who turned herself into a huge black cat. One night her butler struck a black cat on the paw with a cleaver. It vanished but the next day, Lady Ann displayed a wounded wrist.  The cat's bloodstains remained on the kitchen floor until 1920 when the flagstones were taken up. In her tomb, Lady Ann's wrist mysteriously bleeds under the right circumstances!

Lady Ann's tomb

Seventeenth century Scottish witch  Isabel Gowdie revealed the magic formula  she used to turn herself into a cat which was to repeat this verse:

"I shall go intill an catt,
With sorrow, and sych, and a blak shott;
And I sall goe in the Divellis nam,
Ay will I come hom againe."

Be careful out there on this night when the veils are thin between worlds!  And watch out for black could be someone you know!!!  Happy Halloween from all of us!
