"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live

I have to stop saying, "How stupid can you be?" Because some people are taking it as a challenge, instead of as an insult!

"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not so sure about the former."
Albert Einstein

Never argue with an idiot. They pull you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

"If there are any idiots in the room, will they please stand up" said the sarcastic teacher.
After a long silence, one freshman rose to his feet.
"Now then mister, why do you consider yourself an idiot?" enquired the teacher with a sneer.
"Well, actually I don't," said the student, "but I hate to see you standing up there all by yourself."
( Pink Floyd....Brick in the Wall)
A typicall English school...

...If you follow me, I may lead you straight to hell, but if you trust me, I will lead you back out again.
- Francesco Pfauth

'No matter who shakes this hard ground
i know i wont fall down'

The man who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The man who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been before.

Creativity in living is not without its attendant difficulties, for peculiarity breeds contempt. And the unfortunate thing about being ahead of your time is that when people finally realize you were right, they’ll say it was obvious all along. You have two choices in your life; you can dissolve into the mainstream, or you can be distinct. To be distinct, you must be different. To be different, you must strive to be what no one else, but you can be

Hi Everyone,

This is quite a train of wallpapers I have here... pun intended. I don't often put up this many in one day. I uploaded them to celebrate my new group; "Traffic Signals nSigns." I've been wanting to start it since February, but I decided to wait until DN was back up & running again.

My first wallpaper is rather unusual, I know. Unfortunately, I made it out of necessity. If you do nothing else--- read the words in italics at the bottom of this purple wallpaper's description! What I have to say there will be of great interest to you, especially if you are planning to start any new DN groups.

There is one more wallpaper that I made out of necessity also. This one shows the Traffic Signals nSigns Group Avatar.

The rest are walls that I made especially for the group. I hope that you'll decide to join it! :D Here is the link in case you are interested...

One more thing. I've written a journal post that is relevant to the group... Very little to read... Most of it is... Wallpaper Pictures!!! Some of them might even be yours. Check and see if you may have walls that fit into this group uploaded already. :) Or you may get some fresh ideas for this group... many of these wallpapers are absolutely beautiful. Others are very humorous. At any rate, here's the journal link:

Have a wonderful week, everybody. I hope you decide to join the group. It's going to be fun to belong to!

Hiya Ken,

Hiya. Well the weekend flew. I hope that this finds you keeping safe & well. Our weather has spoilt us rotten. Couldn't ask for more perfect days.

My son and his family are having a good trip.
They are now in QLD, and everything seems to be going well. New discoveries, the children are having a ball.

The Furbabies are loving this weather. All adventured around for a while & now all curled up, enjoying the sun. No humidity. Woohoo.
Leaving love on your page. Take care. Thinking of you.

HAPPY 4TH JULY to all my American friends. Right now I'm on holidays & waiting for my son & his family who are driving up here from Alice Springs. They are at Mataranka right now. I am so excited yet, very nervous at the same time. They choose the perfect time to come up. It is our Dry Season, so there is hardly any humidity. Really beautiful days.

I won't be leaving any comments for a few days, as I will be with my visitors. Please take care.

Leaving love on your page from mine.

Greetings everyone,

I hope you are doing well... and if you live anywhere near me, I hope you are managing to stay cool. With temperatures in the 90's that may not be easy!

I'm looking forward to being with family and seeing fireworks during the next few days. Here is what I wish for you;

To all of the Canadians who just celebrated Canada Day...and to all of the US Citizens who are celebrating Independence Day, I hope you've had or will have a wonderful holiday. :)

To everybody else... I sincerely hope that you are living in a country where you have freedom, not fear. If you don't live in such a place, I hope that you can get to a better place and make a new life there.

One thing is certain...freedom is a blessing that none of us should take for granted. I am so thankful to be an American.

Thank you all, for being part of Desktop Nexus. It would get mighty lonely around here without you!

Elaine :)

Black Elk 1863 - 1950
Oglala Lakota
Peace will come to the hearts of men when they realize their oneness with the universe, it is everywhere.

Wolf - Native American Music-

"I threw myself to the wolves , only to learn of the tenderness in their howl, and the loyalty in their blood" -Isra Al-Thibeh..

"In a wolf pack, female wolves are as much respected as the male wolves"!

Enya - Crying Wolf - le chant du Loup

Cornplanter (Chief) c.1732 - 1836
Indians love their friends and kindred, and treat them with kindness.

We cannot waste one drop of our energy. We must live and change with the world around us.

When the sun goes down, he opens his heart to God, and earlier than the sun appears on the hills, he gives thanks for his protection during the night

We Love You To the Moon and Back Our DN Family of Friends, Always Carmen, My Pablo Picasso Azul & MY Pasha Coyote Blue

Enya "The Memory Of The Trees"
