  • Title: Lancasters Laughing Place

This web site is dedicated to the child in all of us and the teacher we would all hope to be.. Lancasters Laughing Place.. A Quest For Founding.. [D].. Our web site name, Lancasters Laughing Place was chosen because all of us suffer from the frailties of life upon occasion, but find solace in small things which are taken for granted..

Return to previous page6.. Butterflys.. Why butterflys adorn our home page.. Uncle Leslie was a retired first mate with Waterman Steam Ship Corporation, whose home was on Fowl River, Alabama.. He suffered from dementia, which was confirmed at autopsy as Alzheimer disease.. When we were tidying up his home for sale, hundreds of containers of water had to be removed..

The top animated gif reads accessibility for everybody commitment.. The animation says a  ...   an attempt to tell her how much she has meant to me and what a difference in my life she has made, but this morning my thoughts became a little clearer.. For those of you who do not know, Trisha is the first person Lady Archer had asked me to help.. I had only been a Spirit Faerie for a month and quite frankly was frightened that I would not be able to help.. Over the course of the next few months as I became more involved, truly wanted to write cheers but felt completely inadequate and turned to Trisha for suggestions, followed her cheers as they were posted with regularity to TSF shouts, got nothing but encouragement and really tried to write.. The more I wrote the better I felt about myself and finally, finally, I not only saw but honestly felt what "spirit" really meant.. To this day I regularly visit TSF shouts, cheer those who have posted a cheer, find that most have never received a cheer for their cheer and I am saddened.. Because if Trisha had not cheered one of my cheers in all probability I would not be continuing to write cheers today.. So when I got home about one pm I sent Trisha the poem which is at the bottom of this post.. Barely had I sent the poem and her beautiful poem for us was sent by PJ to our onelist.. Now I know that men are not supposed to cry, but cry I did and cry I am doing now.. What is scary is what if Lady Archer had not remembered a mail which I sent her almost two years ago.. What if Lady Archer had not encouraged me to join TSF, just after tax season when I was most receptive.. What if Trisha had not needed help with her spirit page and Lady Archer asked me to help.. What if Trisha had not encouraged me.. You see the chance of these events being random occurrences is nil.. Does not take a math genius to figure to odds of all these events converging and making such an impact and difference in my life for the better.. So the next time any of us feel the touch of a velvet wing on our web sites, hear the beauty of a cheerful song which comes from a Shadow Walker or another heart, or smiles at the mischief of the Wee Ones or those errant Spirit Faeries, know full well that the spirit is seeking your participation and will give you a guiding hand.. None of us need walk along or carry too heavy a burden, we all have the comfort of the spirit.. Return to Previous.. Table.. A table is used to organize the content of this page which has three columns.. The left hand column contains under contents, the links for sections of this page and others on our Talking Hands Award section.. After going to the section and at the end and down a line or two is an up which will return you to the contents section.. The second of middle column is a narrative which we have written.. The right hand column contains pictures of two of our honorees.. Return to Previous Page11.. True Teaching.. True teaching involves a learning experience for everyone, no matter what their ability or disABILITY.. For an award presenter or a web site author to insist upon the use of a resolution other then 480 x 640 or small fonts, effectively slams the door shut on those of us who have poor eye sight.. Not to use white as the default background and black as the font color, ignores color blindness or the fact that the background image may not load, thereby slowing down the reading of teaching material.. Please do not ignore our less fortunate than ourselves and our elderly.. All of us would certainly enjoy your web site creations in years to come if you would only try and make your web site "Bobby" compliant.. Return to Previous Page13.. Blind Mary.. This tune is not typical of Carolan's style, but is attributed to him in William Forde's Encyclopedia of Melody.. According to Charles O'Connor's diary in October 1726 his two younger brothers were being taught the harp by a woman named Maire Dhall (Blind Mary).. It is likely she was well known to Carolan, who wrote the tune for her.. Return to Previous Page14.. Ribbon.. D'Ranger and D'Mayor developed a multi colored ribbon to honor the advocacy of all types of cancer for the winner of TSF wide ribbon hunt in October, 2002..

  • Title: Lancasters Laughing Place-Founding
    Descriptive info: Founding.. Midi: Amazing Grace.. Five Major Sections Or Keys To Founding.. There are five major sections to Lancasters Laughing Place: compassion, humility, knowledge, memories and valor.. Each section is like a chapter in a book, but chapters, which are unfinished until our departure from middle earth, and includes life changing events and those who have touched and molded our lives, prayerfully for the better.. Two of our life changing events is the Talking Hands Award and The Site Fights (TSF), which serve as examples  ...   But to this author, evidence of its application is by what is written, said and done to other people and their relationship to us.. As such there are no hidden messages within this production, only the truth.. And the truth shall make all, both whole and free.. You may return to our.. index page.. and from there continue your quest for founding or if you prefer, a site map for each section may be found in the right hand navigation..

All of this changed when the first Commodore 64 was introduced in 1982 and at long last a computer which was within financial reach of the average person became available..

Perhaps you dear visitor shall too when you visit this section of our web site.. Do you wonder what compassion has to do with.. or why we choose to include what we did in this section of our production?.. Our family pictorial includes my wife's family members who have all died from Alzheimer disease.. Also included is my friend Melvin, who died from Alzheimer disease.. Grandchildren and children are of course included.. Our other family includes our precious friends and companions who only give for the sake of "loving".. My wife has published a web page on the Shetland Sheep Dog.. The link to her page is on the Lancaster  ...   application of compassion.. During the initial stages of grief our family found refuge with Compassionate Friends and within the fellowship of St.. Dominic Catholic church, both in Mobile, Alabama.. Both groups had members who experienced grief, went through the healing process, which continues even until death of those grieving.. What we now understand and try to do ourselves is listen.. Yes, listen.. For the hardest gift to attain is just to listen.. Now we start our daily prayers with a simple petition, Lord give me the ability to listen with my heart, mind and tongue.. Lord give me the wisdom to speak only when those talking wish for me to speak to hear what we would say.. And Lord please listen to me as you have taught me to listen to others..

  • Title: Lancasters Laughing Place
    Descriptive info: Humility Sections.. Honors.. Our Clans.. Poetry.. Presents.. Thoughtful.. Laughter is a regular fare for our wee ones, who delight in simple things like ants scurrying to and fro, or the falling leaf on their dogs back.. While adults are busy "making ends meet" and do not take time to "smell the roses.. " Teens on the other hand will laugh at literally anything.. So that others may be first, we may consider following, rather than leading others toward.. Humility, does come easy for the young, but all parents would agree that teens are not humble in the least, because as we learn "parents know nothing.. " We can conclude that adults become humble in our later years when we finally realize that there is much we do not know, because of our wasted youth and misdirected early adult years.. Forward.. In support of both reading and engaging in fantasy, we firmly believe that if imagination is kindled with passion when left to our own devices, and if directed toward a positive good, this will benefit not only the "dreamer", but mankind as well.. Regular reading of both factual and fantasy books from the day of a child's birth engage both the adult and child in pleasure and provide the opportunity for erstwhile discussions.. Books, when read on a  ...   a large ash tray.. We asked her to stop for fear that the glass would break, and with a sudden thrust the ash tray caught me in the head.. Awaking several minutes later the levity of the moment was cause for a diary entry later that day.. Our ability to laugh at any situation gives us a dose of reality tempered with humor.. Knowledge once lost can never be regained.. My father made a comment several weeks before he suffered a severe heart attach and slipped into a coma.. Dad said, "son if you do not take the time to sit at the feet of someone who has talents and knowledge you do not possess, then they will be lost forever.. " To this day our thoughts turn to that moment and cause wonderment as to what knowledge and talents are lost forever, not to be passed onto my children, their children, and human kind.. This section of our web site preserves the talents and knowledge of those who have guided us in our short life on mother earth, acknowledging their contributions for this generation and perhaps future ones as well, and causes us to be in awe and adoration for the many talented and compassionate people who have enriched our lives through our internet and www experiences..
