An Alphabet of Famous Goops


AN ALPHABET OF FAMOUS GOOPS. Which you’ll Regard with Yells and Whoops.

Futile Acumen! For you Yourselves are Doubtless Dupes Of Failings Such as Mar these Groups

We all are Human!

1 ABEDNEGO was Meek and Mild; he Softly Spoke, he Sweetly Smiled.

2 He never Called his Playmates Names, and he was Good in Running Games;

3 But he was Often in Disgrace because he had a Dirty Face!

4 BOHUNKUS would Take Off his Hat, and Bow and Smile, and Things like That.

5 His Face and Hair were Always Neat, and when he Played he did not Cheat;

6 But Oh! what Awful Words he Said, when it was Time to Go to Bed!

7 The Gentle CEPHAS tried his Best to Please his Friends with Merry Jest;

8 He tried to Help Them, when he Could, for CEPHAS, he was Very Good;

9 And Yet -They Say he Used to Cry, and Once or Twice he Told a Lie!

10 DANIEL and DAGO were a Pair who Acted Kindly Everywhere;

11 They studied Hard, as Good as Gold, they Always did as They were Told;

12 They Never Put on Silly Airs, but They Took Things that were Not Theirs.

13 EZEKIEL, so his Parents said, just Simply Loved to Go to Bed;

14 He was as Quiet as could Be whenever there were Folks to Tea;

15 And yet, he had a Little Way of Grumbling, when he should Obey.

16 When FESTUS was but Four Years Old his Parents Seldom had to Scold;

17 They never Called him ‘FESTUS DON’T!’ he Never Whined and said ‘I Won’t!’

18 Yet it was Sad to See him, Dine. His Table Manners were Not Fine.

19 GAMALIEL took Peculiar Pride in Making Others Satisfied.

20 One Time I asked him for his Head. ‘Why, Certainly! GAMALIEL Said.

21 He was Too Generousvery he Wholly Lacked.

23 Forbidden Sweets he would not Touch, though he might Want them very Much.

24 But Oh, Imagination Fails to quite Describe his Finger Nails!

25 How Interesting ISAAC Seemed! He never Fibbed, he Seldom Screamed;

26 His Company was Quite a Treat to all the Children on the Street;

27 But Nurse has Told me of his Wrath when he was Made to Take a Bath!

28 Oh, Think of JONAH when you’re Bad; Think what a Happy Way he had

29 Of Saying ‘Thank You! -‘If you Please’ – ‘Excuse Me, Sir,’ and Words like These.

30 Still, he was Human, like Us All. His Muddy Footprints Tracked the Hall.

31 Just fancy KADESH for a Name! Yet he was Clever All the Same;

32 He knew Arithmetic, at Four, as well as Boys of Nine or More!

33 But I Prefer far Duller Boys, who do Not Make such Awful Noise!

34 Oh, Laugh at LABAN if you Will, but he was Brave when he was Ill.

35 When he was Ill, he was so Brave he Swallowed All his Mother Gave!

36 But Somehow, She could never Tell why he was Worse when he was Well!

37 If MICAH’s Mother Told him ‘No’ he Made but Little of his Woe;

38 He Always Answered, ‘Yes, I’ll Try!’ for MICAH Thought it Wrong to Cry.

39 Yet he was Always Asking Questions and Making quite Ill-timed Suggestions.

40 I Fancy NICODEMUS Knew as Much as I, or even You;

41 He was Too Careful, I am Sure, to Scratch or Soil the Furniture;

42 He never Squirmed, he never Squalled; he Never Came when he was Called!

43 Some think that OBADIAH’S Charm was that he Never Tried to Harm

44 Dumb Animals in any Way, though Some are Cruel when they Play.

45 But though he was so Sweet and Kind, his Mother found him Slow to Mind.

46 When PELEG had a Penny Earned, to Share it with his Friends he Yearned.

47 And if he Bought a Juicy Fig, his Sister’s Half was Very Big!

48 Had he not Hated to Forgive, he would have been Too Good to Live!

49 When QUARTO’S brother QUARTO Hit, was QUARTO Angry? Not a Bit!

51 That Everybody Loved the Lad. Yet Oh, What Selfish Ways he had!

52 Was REUBEN Happy? I should Say! He laughed and Sang Livelong Day.

53 He Made his Mother Smile with Joy to See her Sunny-Tempered Boy.

54 However, she was Not so Gay when REUB Refused to Stop his Play!

55 When SHADRACH Cared to be Polite, they Called him Gentlemanly, Quite;

56 His Manners were Correct and Nice; he Never Asked for Jelly Twice!

57 Still, when he Tried to Misbehave, O, how Much Trouble SHADRACH Gave!

58 Don’t Think that TIMOTHY was Ill because he Sometimes Kept so Still.

59 He knew his Mother Did Not Care to Hear him Talking Everywhere.

60 He did not Tease, he did Not Cry, but he was Always Asking ‘WHY?’

61 URIAH Never Licked his Knife, nor Sucked his Fingers, in his Life.

62 He Never Reached, to Help Himself, the Sugar Bowl upon the Shelf.

63 He Never Popped his Cherry Pits, but he had Horrid Sulky Fits!

64 To See young VIVIUS at his Work, you Knew he’d Never Try to Shirk.

65 The Most Unpleasant Things he’d Do, if but his Mother Asked him To.

66 But when young Vivius Grew Big, it seems he was a Norful Prig!

67 Why WABAN always Seemed so Sweet, was that he Kept so Clean and Neat.

68 He never Smooched his Face with Coal, his Picture Books were Fresh and Whole.

69 He washed His Hands Ten Times a Day; but, Oh, what Horrid Words he’d Say!

70 What shall I say of XENOGOR, Save that he Always Shut the Door!

71 He always Put his Toys Away when he had Finished with his Play.

72 But here his List of Virtues Ends. A Tattle-Tale does not Make Friends.

73 YERO was Noted for the Way with which he Helped his Comrades Play;

74 He’d Lend his Cart, he’d Lend his Ball, his Marbles, and his Tops and All!

75 And Yet (I Doubt if you’ll Believe), he Wiped his Nose upon his Sleeve!

76 The Zealous ZIBEON was Such as Casual Callers Flatter Much.

77 His Maiden Aunts would Say, with Glee, ‘How Good, how Pure, how Dear is He!’

78 And Yet, he Drove his Mother Crazy — he was so Slow, he was so Lazy! ~

I pray that you get it @bestofnatureblog

The Arcturians


We ask you to close your eyes and imagine a place of infinite splendour and wonderment.
Where the energy field is beyond your expectations, beyond the construct on your current reality.


Where beings unite and merge as way showers of knowledge and infinite expansion.

In your dimension the Planet appears desolate and uninhabitable, that is expected. For our world resonates in the Higher Light Spectrum. Where Light is infinite and worlds are endless.

My Personal Journey to Arcturus

As I visit my Arcturian Light Family on the ship, as I connect and merge with the Arcturian frequency.

I was told its time, in that moment my view changed to a planet, as we were moving closer.


As I entered the higher dimensional light system. I was immersed in a world of colour brilliance and balance. Of a high vibrational intelligence humming from everything I saw.

A feeling of peace, tranquility and galactic intelligence. Where pure universal love radiated, freedom and white light shined.

I saw a Light City of consciousness and light. A world where the essence of life was integrated within every structure.

The colours were shades of blue, mauve, white and silver. It was a beautiful stream of colours perfectly aligned with the vibrational energies I was feeling.


I was informed the colours of the city can change, just like the leaves of a tree, as the energies align and flow with the universal light codes.

The experience is imprinted within my soul. It has activated aspects of me, expanded my knowledge of the Arcturian frequency.

Oh my Harry Urban you talk the walk as a grand Gentleman . One our beautiful friend’s lost her race with time last week. 32 years completing her journey . She left us with so much history and wonder. God bless you Sir


We stumble through life trying to make sense out of how things are, then you get diagnosed with some form of dementia thinking that this just might be the final straw.

You soon learn the true meaning of fears and all the drama in your life becomes unimportant. This may not happen overnight, but trust me, it is sink or swim time. You have so many different paths available to you, but it is up to you to choose which path you want to follow.

I tried several of these paths until I found the one leading to a World without Dementia. This path leads me away from the bitterness of dementia and toward my inner peace.

I discovered ways to adapt to this new life and become happy once again. Through this newfound happiness I discovered my passion and purpose in life. I believe you must taste the ugliest before you can appreciate how blessed your life is.

Discover the pleasant feelings you get when you help someone else.

I’ll Go

I know its been hard and yes I know you’ve been scared i know you’ve been excumunicated i know you’ve been barred from feeling closer and centered deep within your heart
Still I need you to know

I’ll Go

Yes i know you’ve felt like a leppard a viral gone free a last thought a shepard without his flock a time bomb tickicking away at the clock
You perform for an audience that refuses
to show a orchestra with horns drums string and bow
But I need you to know

I’ll Go

I understand your a present who’s never been unwrrapped a gift a treasure but lost on the map
i can see you’ve been the giver yet always attaked the healer to the wounded while all others retract

A guide for the journeyman while the world was on your back
But please know this… that yes…

I’ll Go

Don’t give up when you can’t see the ground
It’s trying enough when life seems up when it should be down

Its painful to be seen right when your already wrong its hard to stay the course when the roads so long
But you’ve got to know this…. In times like this

I’ll Go

Because I’m here
now and that’s what matters the most beyound the archers with their arrows the demons with their ghost
You have to know and know.. that
I’ll Go

I want you to know that love is this and this love is here in times of rain and snow

You can ask me please…
yes allow it to be me .
I need you to know here is where we grow

So ..again your not alone you just need to know

That …

I’ll Go

Yours always …Love

San Fransisco


From that moment where you and I stood being chrisend by the rain nothing else after or before would ever feel the same .

It was though we were two actors in a W. Allan movie scene and each secound spent was up on a silver screen

As you read your line
you quietly said
Your eyes are like bullets like guns to lead
no need to speak just look instead

Now thoughts we had dread only now flew high like the lights in your eyes as to smoke in your Jamaican sky

Question and answers not needed tonight
Just the realatiy of you the relativity of I

Your the city that never ever grows old where life would rather cease than ever stop to flow and
where so many stories seem to silently unfold

I imagine that a life with you is like this place we know like
a book that’s read and Scar tissue is me
And Mocking birds you .

It would appear your much more aware
since the time we met before like two at chess you seem to understand what’s right what’s best .
well I guess it’s fair game now what happens next

You’ll just be the home we’ve always known
Where real magic music and art is grown.
And underneath the sun born glow of its red orange colored bridge where you cross and never stop you just go
Lay one heart abroad… you my
San Fransisco.

A Little Tricky.


Today’s date is what you ate yesterday but not tomorrows plate which means today is never what you were yesterday entirely because it’s now a choice to make
just who you it
Pie or cake

Your not the blame of your names past simply who you are today is not the same
As yesterday

If you saw Andy on Thursday well today’s Friday and Andy’s now Sandy because Andy choose and tomorrow who knows

What Sandy’s mission is but Sandy well she might prefer Brandy and Brandy prefers vegitibales over candies for her.

Don’t hold your soul lockdown behind the pain of old habits and goals
Unleash your power it’s you in control
Oorrtuinity is here present and bold .

Don’t hang on string that only bring bitterness and things
instead cast it in front of you and cling to a better meinning it’s the reel in you

Today’s date is today’s fate who you are and what you take so don’t look to forward but never hesitate for you are you to resonate

You are your chief there’s nothing else
all that is prepared is sesoned by you yourself

So tell me what’s today’s date

You must aporiciate you now there’s no more time to wait
My brother my sister myself my mate

So tell me again… what’s today’s date ?

Humble ~ Kind


If you are humble, you will always learn the most from whatever you perceive to be less powerful than you. It doesn’t matter what or who it is: children, a mate, animals, plants or a blade of grass – everything and everyone is a teacher, if you are a humble student. Progress and healing involves seeing every person as not so different from ourselves. We can show love and respect by cultivating and extending freedom to those we care about, but this process must begin with self-respect and self-love, and then flow outward to others. When you walk through life considering each moment as a practice of respect, you are moving closer to your attainment of deeper levels of spiritual and psychological fullness. When you give respect and freedom, you become a cherished source of God’s unconditional love to others; they will look to you and see you as a reservoir of safety and security. From the simple practice of respect, you will begin to receive the greatest gift; a foundation of amity and goodwill toward all life! Share this with someone you love and be blessed!

Yes and No

When you go will you
When you know will you go…no.
Do you know everything to know.. .no
Knowing you know are you all knowing .no

Then I suggest this

know with yes on your lips your life can be bliss like mother’s warm meal youre favorite home made dish and your father’s current football list

Yes it’s better so try this
Yes is yes even if it’s no because yes creates a wish and helps the young the old the poor the rich live with the sweet kiss
Of life

Yes even to a closed fist it brings a softness to all the madness and to the harden soul a rush of love and happiness

Events if your that fish you know that one who’s out of the water with not much faniss
You can still say yes no not all the time but yes a little bit more
And no just a little less.

The English are very problematic


Double Entendres.

Some of the finest (unintentional) double-entendres ever aired on British TV and radio: 

1. Ted Walsh – Horse Racing Commentator – ‘This is really a lovely horse. I once rode her mother.’ 

2. Pat Glenn, weightlifting commentator – ‘And this is Gregoriava from Bulgaria . I saw her snatch this morning and it was amazing!’ 

3. Harry Carpenter at the Oxford-Cambridge boat race 1977 – ‘Ah, isn’t that nice. The wife of the Cambridge President is kissing the Cox of the Oxford crew.’ 

4. US PGA Commentator – ‘One of the reasons Arnie (Arnold Palmer) is playing so well is that, before each tee shot, his wife takes out his balls and kisses them. Oh my god !! What have I just said??’ 

5. Carenza Lewis about finding food in the Middle Ages on ‘Time Team Live’ said: ‘You’d eat beaver if you could get it.’

6. A female news anchor who, the day after it was supposed to have snowed and didn’t, turned to the weatherman and asked, ‘So Bob, where’s that eight inches you promised me last night?’ Not only did HE have to leave the set, but half the crew did too, because they were laughing so hard! 

7. Steve Ryder covering the US Masters: ‘Ballesteros felt much better today after a 69 yesterday.’ 

8. Clair Frisby talking about a jumbo hot dog on ‘Look North’ said: ‘There’s nothing like a big hot sausage inside you on a cold night like this. ‘ 

9 Mike Hallett discussing missed snooker shots on ‘Sky Sports’: ‘Stephen Hendry jumps on Steve Davis’s misses every chance he gets.’ 

10. Michael Buerk on watching Philippa Forrester cuddle up to a male astronomer for warmth during BBC1’s UK eclipse coverage remarked: ‘They seem cold out there. They’re rubbing each other and he’s only come in his shorts.’ 

11. Ken Brown commentating on golfer Nick Faldo and his caddie Fanny Sunneson lining-up shots at the Scottish Open: ‘Some weeks Nick likes to use Fanny; other weeks he prefers to do it by himself.’

Anecdote of being grown up


I asked a friend who has crossed the late 70s and who is heading towards 80, what sort of changes he is feeling in himself?

He advised the following:

   After loving my parents, my siblings, my spouse, my children and my friends, I have now started loving myself.

    I have realized that I am not “Atlas”. The world does not rest on my shoulders.

  I have stopped bargaining with vegetable & fruit vendors. A few cents more is not going to break me, but it might help the poor fellow save for his daughter’s school fees.

  I leave my waitress a big tip. The extra money might bring a smile to her face. She is toiling much harder for a living than I am.

  I stopped telling the elderly that they’ve already narrated that story many times. The story makes them walk down memory lane & relive their past.

  I have learned not to correct people even when I know they are wrong. The onus of making everyone perfect is not on me. Peace is more precious than perfection.

  I give compliments freely & generously. Compliments are a mood enhancer not only for the recipient but also for me. And a small tip for the recipient of a compliment, never, NEVER turn it down, just say “Thank You.”

   I have learned not to bother about a crease or a spot on my shirt. Personality speaks louder than appearances.

  I walk away from people who don’t value me. They might not know my worth, but I do.

  I remain cool when someone plays dirty to outrun me in the rat race. I am not a rat and neither am I in any race.

  I am learning not to be embarrassed by my emotions. It’s my emotions that make me human.

  I have learned that it’s better to drop the ego than to break a relationship. My ego will keep me aloof, whereas, with relationships, I will never be alone.

  I have learned to live each day as if it’s the last. After all, it might be the last.

I am doing what makes me happy. I am responsible for my happiness, and I owe it to myself. Happiness is a choice. You can be happy at any time, just choose to be!

I decided to share this. Why do we have to wait to be 60 or 70 or 80,

why can’t we practice this at any stage and age?
