Good morning Texas! Here's today's ...

Advent Calendar
Dec 3, 2018

Why not you?

Today, many will awaken with a fresh sense of inspiration. Why not you?
Today, many will open their eyes to the beauty that surrounds them. Why not you?
Today, many will choose to leave the ghost of yesterday behind and seize the immeasurable power of today. Why not you?
Today, many will break through the barriers of the past by looking at the blessings of the present. Why not you?
Today, for many, the burden of self doubt and insecurity will be lifted by the security and confidence of empowerment. Why not you?
Today, many will rise above their believed limitations and make contact with their powerful innate strength. Why not you?
Today, many will choose to live in such a manner that they will be a positive role model for their children. Why not you?
Today, many will choose to free themselves from the personal imprisonment of their bad habits. Why not you?
Today, many will choose to live free of conditions and rules governing their own happiness. Why not you?
Today, many will find abundance in simplicity. Why not you?
Today, many will be confronted by difficult moral choices and they will choose to do what is right instead of what is beneficial. Why not you?
Today, many will decide to no longer sit back with a victim mentality, but to take charge of their lives and make positive changes. Why not you?
Today, many will take the action necessary to make a difference. Why not you?
Today, many will make the commitment to be a better mother, father, son, daughter, student, teacher, worker, boss, brother, sister, & so much more. Why not you?
Today is a new day!
Many will seize this day.
Many will live it to the fullest.
Why not you?

Thank you both for sharing! Great food for thought. Nom, nom, nom! 🥣

You're welcome Big Tex of NewTexas. :)

From now on, instead of Fort Verden, everyone please call me Verner since Verner is actually my first name. However, as much as I wish it to be, Von Richthofen isn't actually my real surname. Manfred Von Richthofen a.k.a. the Red Baron who was a WWI flying ace is my hero. Therefore, I use Von Richthofen as my online surname and told my wife and sons to do that too. :)

Looks good so far. Please continue it!

You're welcome. I'm glad you like it. :)

On the fifth day of Texmas, Gov. Abbott gave to me,
Five oil wells....
Four tumbleweeds,
Three toll roads
Two Lone Stars.
And an 80 mile per hour speed limit.

You're welcome. I laughed at your tumbleweeds and now you've got one more oil well than I do. You got the last laugh. :)

I think all of us as either honorary Texans, our natural born Texans should at least put a little Black ribbon on a version of your flag until Thursday I changed mine a bit it seems to fit since it looks like Reveille is howling after losing George HW Bush.

On the sixth day of Texmas, Gov. Abbott gave to me,
Six birds for hunting,
Five oil wells....
Four tumbleweeds,
Three toll roads
Two Lone Stars.
And an 80 mile per hour speed limit.

RIP George H.W. Bush. One of the greatest war heroes ever!

Also...RIP Oklahoma! Pray as they and Kyler Murray get dEsTrOyEd by Alabama. If we were the only team to beat Oklahoma, and Alabama beats them, then that means Texas is as good as Alabama right? Lol. RIP us, as we play Georgia in the Sugar Bowl. Even Nick Saban said he didn't want to play Georgia again.

One of my guys got this shot this morning. It is the sunrise in Houston over the Presidential 747 that flew President Bush's body from Houston to DC. He said it was God's way of sending a card to the Bush Family.

Hiya!

My name's Tessa, I'm female and I'm an artist and graphic designer. My hair and eye color are the same as the hair and eye color of the character Talitha Macer i.e. brown hair and brown eyes. So I wouldn't have to dye my hair or wear colored contact lenses when I cosplay as her. This is the main reason I'm cosplaying and roleplaying as Talitha Macer. Second reason is I like the name Talitha, it's beautiful and more unique and unusual than my name. I'm half asleep until I've drunk my breakfast coffee and I can drink up to 5 cups of coffee a day and still be able to go to sleep at night. You can call me a Coffeholic.

Welcome to TX, maybe we can get some sort of role play set up. Either way, I hope you stick around for a while

“Don't Just

Don't just learn, experience.
Don't just read, absorb.
Don't just change, transform.
Don't just relate, advocate.
Don't just promise, prove.
Don't just criticize, encourage.
Don't just think, ponder.
Don't just take, give.
Don't just see, feel.
Don’t just dream, do.
Don't just hear, listen.
Don't just talk, act.
Don't just tell, show.
Don't just exist, live.”

The Governor of RL Texas is going all in on this:

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott closes state agencies Wednesday to mourn George H.W. Bush
https://www.texastribune.org/2018/12/03/texas-agencies-closed-wednesday-day-mourning-george-hw-bush/

By our reckoning, that is roughly 145,000+ out of 483,000+ State employees. That is a telling send off about what 41 meant to Texas.

R.I.P. George H. W. Bush.

Hi! I'm a newbie and I want to be a Texan. Yeehaw! Just call me Falcona.

I saw an article today showing Bob Dole (who's 95 and in a wheelchair now) standing up to salute Bush's coffin. It was truly stunning and saddening at the same time.

ic: A New Leader Appears
ooc: Post Halo: Nightfall events

ic: As you know, Colonel Randall Aiken who led the SGC sacrificed himself on Alpha Shard so me and Spartan Jameson Locke could escape. Col. Aiken was my mentor and I'm now promoted to Colonel of the Sedran Colonial Guard. That makes me the new leader of the SGC. Looking forward to forging alliances, diplomatic and trade relationships and friendships with everyone.

Colonel Talitha Macer

ooc: Why did I come here? I started out in the East Pacific and it was no good there. Swamped by too many recruitment telegrams. That's weird. So I jumped to 10,000 islands because it's one of the East Pacific's embassies and the name was eyecatching but it's still not good enough. I won't stand out in 10,000 islands, I'll be just another island. The first embassy listed on 10,000 island is Texas so I hope to be welcome here and can make this place is my new home.

Hi there Talitha! Nice to meet you. I'm Emmett. Welcome to Texas and see you around!

Believe In Yourself

Believe in yourself and in your dream
Though impossible things may seem
Someday, somehow you'll get through
To the goal you have in view

Mountains fall and seas divide
Before the one who in his stride
Takes a hard road day by day
Sweeping obstacles away

Believe in yourself and in your plan
Say not - I cannot - but, I can
The prizes of life we fail to win
Because we doubt the power within

- Author Unknown

I believe that God has put gifts and talents and ability on the inside of every one of us. When you develop that and you believe in yourself and you believe that you're a person of influence and a person of purpose, I believe you can rise up out of any situation.

**** New WA Resolution Notification *****

There is currently a new Security Council Resolution at vote. When expressing your opinion, please note which Resolution it is for. And remember Texans, your individual vote does count!

The new Resolution is called:
"Condemn Macedon
A resolution to express shock and dismay at a nation or region.

Category: Condemnation  Nominee: Macedon  Proposed by: Kuriko

The Security Council,

Acknowledging that Macedon, one of the first Imperialistic regions of the NationStates Multiverse"...

<see the Security Council for full text and to vote>

Synopsis: The Security Council is taking a stroll down Memory Lane attempting to condemn a region that has already been condemned by SC #1 over nine years ago. This region has done nothing since. While well-written and probably more historically accurate that SC #1, in our humble opinion, this Resolution is unnecessary and akin to flogging a dead horse. One Star. NewTexas will go on record as AGAINST on this Resolution. This is only the opinion of NewTexas. We look forward to other Texans' opinions and comments on this Resolution. If good arguments to the contrary are made, we will reconsider our position.

The Texas response fell into the gutter on the last SC vote -- Condemn The Pacific -- which was passed after gaining 88.2% of the vote. As a reminder, all we are looking for is a simple 10% of Texans to say one way or another. We are a force for change in the WA. Every vote counts! There was 1 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 1 FOR and 0 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were unanimous! Um, Yay?

If you would like to take part in shaping the world you live in, please vote. Voting is a right and a privilege, please consider using it. And, if you are not a member of the World Assembly, we strongly encourage you to join.

All Texas WA Member nations please vote. Please make your Texan opinions known in Texas by 11:00 PM Friday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00 PM Texas Time on Sturday the 8th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 4479 Votes AGAINST: 835

Big Tex

PS: Remember, be sure to vote at the World Assembly too!

did anyone notice that when they were carrying his casket out of the Capitol building they played a portion of this song https://youtu.be/mCEfqj9pDAI I instantly recognized it from James Cameron's & Di Caprio's Titanic movie. plus there gonna do a 21 US Navy plane missing man formation in College Station I think as his casket is either carried down George Bush Drive or as the Train rolls into town. I wish I could have gone it would have been an awesome site to see.

On the eighth day of Texmas, Gov. Abbott gave to me,
Eight longhorns grazing,
Seven smokers smoking,
Six birds for hunting,
Five oil wells....
Four tumbleweeds,
Three toll roads
Two Lone Stars.
And an 80 mile per hour speed limit.

They're planning their pranks for our annual Christmas family gathering now that Thanksgiving is over. Am I a bad Dad for allowing my sons to play pranks on family at every one of our family gatherings?

Gobble, gobble, gobble?!

The Eternal Emperor, Verner Von Richthofen is chasing the Big Tex turkey... Looks like we have found our Christmas Turkey! Nyah-ha-ha-ha!

I wish all the candidates good luck and may the best candidates win the election.

Yes, you should.

“Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report written on birds that he'd had three months to write, which was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books about birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him put his arm around my brother's shoulder, and said, "Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.”
- Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

“Anyone can fight the battles of just one day. It is only when you and I add the battles of those two awful eternities, yesterday and tomorrow, that we break down. It is not the experience of today that drives us mad. It is the remorse or bitterness for something that happened yesterday or the dread of what tomorrow may bring. Let us therefore do our best to live but one day at a time.”
- Richard Walker, Twenty-Four Hours a Day

"Live one day at a time and make it a masterpiece."

I don't know who many of you are still answering issues, but I'd appreciate any feedback that you have to give on the most recent one that Bears Armed has had accepted. It's #1120, which has the seasonally-appropriate title of 'Following Yonder Star'.
How does your nation's government respond when three foreign Kings all want to visit one particular little town during one particular week.. and they explain why?

^_^
