Lupus Awareness Pattern – Flutterby Keychain

I designed this butterfly keychain in honor of Lupus Awareness. May is Lupus Awareness Month. Lupus is a horrible auto-immune disease that usually goes undetected because the symptoms mimic other illnesses. If you would like to know more about Lupus please go to http://lupus.org.

BOOK REVIEW: The Outsider’s Guide to UFOs: Volume 1: Mystery and Science


Title: The Outsider’s Guide to UFOs: Volume 1: Mystery and Science
Author: James T. Abbott
Genre: Science, Non-fiction
My Rating:

Book Description:

What exactly is impossible in this universe? The Outsider’s Guide to UFOs is for anyone for whom “the UFO thing” is enduringly fascinating but bafflingly complex. It cuts out all the smoke and mirrors and focuses on core questions like what are UFOs, how long have they been around, and are they hoaxes, figments of the imagination, or real?

Author James Abbott is a highly experienced researcher who has spent years studying this timeless debate as an outsider. With no vested interests, he presents all sides of the story without fear or favour. Read about
– 40 of the most important UFO cases
– 9 official projects and reports on the subject
– 13 fascinatingly strange UFO characteristics
– 20 possible explanations for UFOs
– the very best photo and video evidence

The Outsider’s Guide to UFOs explains why there may be up to 3,000 totally inexplicable UFO sightings every year around the world. It also discusses four mind-blowing theories about UFOs, clarifies the background, simplifies the main questions, and presents evidence and counter-evidence about the mysterious things we see in the sky. More importantly, it recommends straightforward action to settle the UFO question once and for all.

My Review

I really liked this book. it wasn’t written like other books about UFOs. it read somewhat like a text book – but yet not. You can read from the 1st page to the last or skip around. I read most of what was in this book. However, with that being said, it is good for those just starting to get into this area. Also good for a brush up of what you’ve already read about.


I received this book from netgalley.com for a honest review.

It’s Been A Long Few Weeks

These past few weeks have been long for me. I have slept most of the past 2 weeks. If you don’t know I have the photosensitivity side effect of Lupus. if I am in the sun it makes me tired enough to take very long naps. It’s usually the morning sun that gets to me. It hasn’t been this bad in almost a year. It was especially bad last week when I went out at around 7am to do laundry & got home around 10. I slept all day & that night & most of the next day. There is more to it then sleeping. I’m just glad I slept through most of the other parts of what happens when i’m in the sun.

This has made it so I can’t read & do book reviews. Today is the first day I haven’t been out in the sun for a few days so I am hoping I can stay awake today. I got up & decided to try to stay up. So far so good. I have 3 books on netgalley.com to read & review. I will get to that. I feel bad because I like to read books & review them. It is fun. I haven’t even been able to read fanfiction. Before you mention it – yes I was up enough to knit. I told Grace I would make her gloves for her work & I thought it was more important then reading. They where sent off to her yesterday. I also haven’t posted the FO post I said I would do every other month. If I can stay up today I will get that out too. I don’t think I have many things to show but I will keep that up.

If you really want to know how bad it is I haven’t been able to play WOW much. I log on & just fall asleep at my desk. This is the longest I have been up where I could fall asleep & not fallen asleep.

Mom: If you read this I am still going places with you in the morning. I don’t mind. The only time I venture out in public is when I go with you. Even if I just sit in the car while you do your stuff I still want to go. And we need to do laundry still – just maybe not when they open.
