RON RON - New Update from Japan: March 29, 2011

RON & I have been communicating via Facebook and this is his latest note that you may find very interesting and reassuring:

hey, i forgot i forgot to rsvp for a wedding coming in two weeks. thanks for your thoughts on the people of japan. people are starting to help each other and open their hearts more in ways they haven't before. everyone is stepping forward in their own way but for a collective goal: a restored Japan. it is amazing the stories i am hearing Church groups are pouring in time and money, even Yakuza is making this a priority to get food to victims.

i couldnt have been happier to just help people and encourage others- regardless of beliefs. I have seen people meet their neighbors for the first, enemies became friends. it is all amazing. it is like watching a character(s) change for the better. and Japan is amazing not she is just getting a whole lot better in different ways!!

and adrienne, you are able to get caught up?!!
things are well with you in the windy city?!!

all love out to the windy city!!

Ron Reid: Video Postings & Commentary from Japan.

Chicago, IL USA: I'm writing to a fellow artist/screenwriter in Japan, now experiencing the worst catastrophe to ever hit this tiny island nation. The following is an excerpt from Ron's note to me. He lists several videos he has shot that will show you what is really happening in Japan and to the people there.

He may be reached via FB at: Ron Ron
Let's begin now:

yeah, i am not too bad. Write sci-fi/comedy/drama and like to mix and match genres.
I have about 4 features and 15 shorts and won about 12 awards.

you know, just trying to get that right person to read the right thing i have.

here is an update of some stuff happening from japan i sent out.

I am originally from toronto and have been trying to launch a film career in LA but working in Japan.

but since the earthquake i have been posting things on fb which is natural.

some filmmaker friends have posted my stuff on twitter.

but also on CNN. and because it is raw and first person they have given me an award for reporting. it is a badge of some kind for journalism in the community.

here is the one that caught the attention of CNN.


my youtube also has two interviews.

How Humanity killed Japan.

I’m re-editing my Movie Script that beat out 3,164 others last July and a new theme emerged that to me now, makes perfect sense, especially with what happened to the Island of Japan and what that does to (or against Humanity) as well as every phase of life from this point on and out.

My definitive Quote of The Ides of March 15 12:06 PM CST is:

“Look at the mess that Japan is in now. Mess doesn’t even begin to cover their dire and depressing situation. If Man didn’t need Power Plants, Japan would still be ‘alive’ today.”

Now, for the conversation that The Narrative relays. “Earth was not called ‘No Man’s Land’ for no apparANT reason. After seeing the wrath and fury of destruction Humans have done and are responsible for, ‘NO MAN’ should be here or have ever stepped foot here on a Planet that was once – so long ago, a natural Garden of Earthly Delights.”

CLOSING: It’s my goal to get this Script & its acompanying Text online as an eBook by June 1st, in time for most ANTS to be sidewalk-side.

Thanks for reading along.

“Like ANTS. They like you.”

Tuesday, March 8, 2011 – 7:59 AM

The most misunderstood Creature on The Planet (that’s PLANET, of course) is THE ANT. For those of you who guessed that correct ANTswer (that’s ‘Answer’ in Humanese), by all means give yourself a Pat (i.e.: pANT) on The Back. Soon, you are to learn a New Perspective about Life, all taken from The APoV: ANTS’ Point of View.

Chronologically, ANTS go back 130,000,000 years, outliving The Dinosaur by 65,000,000 years, even though ANTS are a Smidgen of the Mighty Lizards’ gigANTic Size. Man’s History is surely miniscule compared to The ANT’s Past. That Statement must be further clarified as ANT Life registers as a ‘Prehistory’ since Sundials, Clcks, Watches and Timepieces were not invented, yet every Act(ion) was performed in a conscientious State and timely Manner. How could that Function possibly be? There’s no inferANTS or inference to BEES in this Case. ANTS are The Topic here and the relevANT Answers to any and every Question are easily found Online, in your Backyard and at your Family Picnics. ANTS live ‘local’ (‘locally’ in proper English), but work global(ly). Teamwork is hot-wired into their Brain that has kept THE ANTS center-stage in Nature, acting as Nature’s Farmer in The Realm We call Life. Like Humans, they come in a Variety of lively and lovely Colors, Hues, Shades and SKiN Tones.

ANTS (Arthropoda Insecta Hymenoptera Apocrita Vespoidea Formicidae in old Latin1) are agile. Their Flexibility and Demeanor have allowed them The Privilege to be InhabitANTS of our Planet Earth for ne of the lengthiest Periods of Time, equating to:

1,560,000,000 Months calculated in Human Time

47,450,000,000 Days calculated in Human Time (a 365-Day Year)
47,482,500,000 Days calculated in Human Time (a 366-Day/Leap Year)

1,138,800,000,000 Hurs calculated in Human Time (a 365-Day Year)
1,139,580,000,000 Hurs calculated in Human Time (a 366-Day/Leap Year)

68,328,000,000,000 Secnds calculated in Human Time (a 365-Day Year)
68,374,800,000,000 Secnds calculated in Human Time (a 366-Day/Leap Year)


Who else can play Hide & Go Seek as easily as ANTS do? When Size doesn’t matter, We suddenly see that it does. Even the minutest of Creatures can have the BIGGEST Minutes and MomANTS on Earth. When Size does matter, We suddenly see that Bulk or Matter exerts a Force that affects The Course of each Kingdom it connects (with). Grounded in Teamwork, THE ANT FAMILY of Muckety Muck ProvANTS (that’s ‘Province’ to English-speaking Populations) know the great Tasks that lay ahead of them. That is exactly what I, ADRiENNE SiOUX KOOPERSMiTH poignANTly & elequANTly depict in iN THE COMPANY OF ANTS©2009-2010, a multi-level Fable – STORY – Script whose Fur Premises symbolize racy Topics that forge Front Page News & Headlines. Those Subjects spotlight:

 eliminating Racism;

 dispelling The Mixed Signals and Ironies of every Day Life;

 realizing fully that your (false and irrationally made) Prejudgments should be
diligently avoided at all Costs & Efforts; and

 getting to The Heart of what really matters is all that matters most.

To Scores of People throughout Time, ANTS were born to get under your SKiN and give you ‘The Creeps.’ With a wrongfully fixed Mindset as this securely in place, what possible Lessons and Values could Humans (stoutly judging themselves to be a far Superior Race) then learn from such a SMALL Species? As my Writing expanded, other Writers and The Media began asking:
What compelled me to choose ANTS
to battle against such ingrained, Social Human Dilemmas & Injustices?

In response, I stated: “The ANTS’ Cuteness, Cooperation and Chronology served as my Top 3 Criteria in selecting a Creature that could properly tell this STORY, a Tale based and founded in Truth.”

After all, Humans were brought up to believe that ANTS were:

Born to bug.
Born to picnic.
Born to invade and
Born to endure.

Born 130,000,000 years ago, ANTS now set a Prime Example in:


a willful STORY explaining how Size, Color & Wits matter in Nature, for the Survival of The Species and those (about them) that they assist and affect. At times, this Role can give-off the Wrong Signals causing Mixed Messages to occur and confuse. Getting to know The Real ANTS of Muckety-Muck ProvANTS allows The Observer (Reader, Viewer and/or Audience Member) to gain a privileged Insider’s vANTage Point of what happens in ANT-dom, seldom revealed until now. Keeping thematic Boundaries harmonically in place, ‘Getting To Know You’ by Rodgers and Hammerstein (the 1951 Show Tune from the Musical, The King and I)2 plays quietly in The Background for this Segment in The Scene. ‘ANTicipation’ by Carly Simon is, of course, The ANThem of iN THE COMPANY OF ANTS©2009 for the most obvious of Reasons, Chords and Lyrical ContANT. So LITTLE in Stature, yet they do so much, ANTS aerate the Ground that grows every Creature’s Food on Planet Earth, the Food that keeps every Life Form fit. All without a Plow, a Tractor, a Hoe, a Pitchfork, a Sickle or a Shovel.

ENTER: True to form, many early Tales have a ‘Giant’ in them. Becoming steadfast Friends, GiANT is ‘in The Company’ (constANT Company) of ANTS as We all are. That Camaraderie comprises 1 of the 2 Reasons why this Title was selected for both The Script and Manuscript. As Destiny plays a major Part, the Tw Major Forces, Mother Nature & Father Time make this Life – our Life – ‘be as it is’ and ‘come what it may’ for every Creature who flies, crawls, walks, swims and/or slithers about.

ENTER: Completing this Triangle, the Third ComponANT is Aesop. Great Literary ‘GiANTs’ are always needed to record & relay The Meaning & Message for all Genes, Gene Pools & Generations to grasp and grip. It’s plain to see. Nothing is held back. Look about you. We are all iN THE COMPANY OF ANTS. Watch where you step.

The top-ranking 10 ANT-icular Questions Journalists are most likely to ask are:

 Who are these ANTS?

 What could THE ANTS’ possible ‘Hidden Agenda’ be?

 What Secrets are these ANTS not divulging?

 Where do THE ANTS go when their ‘Going’ gets tough?

 Why do ANTS act and react as they do?

 What do ANTS innately know that Humans don’t?

 With Cement, Brick & Mortar abounding, what’s The Future hold for THE ANT?

 The most pressing Question asked is: Why do so many Species want them to disappear when ANTS are The Crux – The LifeBlood – of how The Planet operates and sustains Life?

 Is Man’s Attitude toward THE ANT sheerly a Jealous Gene or a half-witted Prejudgment based upon their AppearANTS, being differANT than We (meaning outside/hateful/vengeful) Species are?

 Plainly and simply: What is their STORY?

A random and awkward Act of Slipping causes GiANT to meet THE ANT FAMILY (consisting of 31 ANTS). Neither of them had any Inkling that such an IncidANT would occur. Sometimes, even Surprises are surprising. Unbeknownst to them all, a Friendship sparks from this Encounter sealing their Fate and yielding a fANTastic Tale that needs to be told.

On Day 2 of their AdveNTure, together THE ANTS & GiANT journey into the far, far, far Reaches of The ProvANTS of Muckety Muck to visit Mother Nature and Father Time. Aesop, The STORY Teller appears as their Special Guest and for a very good Reason. Under Aesop’s Guiding Hnd, Encouragement and Instruction, they weave a unique Fable of their own about how The anciANT TrojANT War was waged and staged. ANTS were at The Helm, of course. Who else could there possibly ‘BE?’ When you are outnumbered, you are outnumbered, no matter what Size you’ve grown to BE. This frolicking Flick is for The Glorification of ANTS. BEES appeared in a previous Show circa October, 2007 starring the beaming Barry B. Benson. The 21ST Century is spotlighted as The Era of The Insect. With Film + Animation as popular as ever, any Creature can become an instANT SuperStar, proving to Man that We are, indeed, all ne and not ‘apart,’ but ‘a Part’ of ‘The Whole.’ Later, they travel back home to The Meadow bordering The Muckety Muck of ProvANTS, the Stomping Grounds of THE ANTS and so many & much more after learning Valuable Lessons at Mother Nature’s Towering Obelisk.

You may wonder: How does being so SMALL affect an ANT’s Livelihood? The First Rule of ANT-enna (that’s comparable to ANT Thumbs) is that SMALL does not mean insignificANT and inconsequANTial in ANT--PIA®. Being so SMALL as ANTS are, it’s surprising Humans know as much as they do about their Colonized Wrld. Certainly, there can’t be any Fossilized ANT Bones (hardened in Limestone or Shale) left to study and behold. Or are there? Studies have been done. Drops of bona fide Amber Juice have preserved several ANTS throughout their long Reign on Earth. If ANTS were to suddenly become extinct, The BalANTS of Nature would be thrown-off radically, snuffing & suffocating Life as We know it. Call that Locale ‘The Forbidden Zone.’ ANTS serve every Creature of every MeasuremANT. Think seriously now about this CommANTary:

When was the last Time you walked acrss a Blade of Grass; hid in The Cracks of a City’s concrete Sidewalk or quickly slid between The Bark of a blossoming Bush? Respecting Nature is an unspoken but acknowledged CommandmANT that must be practiced.


We’re all here for a Purpose. From the SMALLEST Molecule to the LARGEST Mammoth, Life on Earth began with a Single-Cell Purpose to live the best Life possible. Look about you! Every Creature has its own Style and System ruled by The Imprints of Nature and aided by Gravity, Time and Space. This Process grows, whether you are an inch or a mile-high in Stature. These Innate Dynamics openly contain the IngrediANTS & ElemANTS of a powerful STORY, ready to be told, aptly entitled: iN THE COMPANY OF ANTS ©2009-2010.


Sometimes that Purpose is not plain to see, especially so…if you are differANT. That DifferANTS primes you for special Jobs and Services that makes your Days special and fly-on-by. The most obvious, of course, stands out boldly while the most un-obvious fades into The Background. Each Body serves an important Purpose.
In the Life Cycle of a Species, Color, Sex, Size and Opinion are the most spectacular ‘Differences’ that are immediately encountered in the PAPWU: Plant-Animal-People Wrld & Universe. Yet, if We take The Time granted and given to us by Father Time to closely examine what each Creature is all about, We will see that We all have Hearts-Souls-Minds wrapped in SKiN that serves a distinct Purpose & presANTed by astute Methods that aid in Survival by joining (all of us) together…making those Differences similar in Nature: Mother Nature.

“The only Difference between Species is in The Packaging.
The World would be
pathetically boring
if We were all Cookie Cutter Clones.”

WHO RULES YOUR LiFE? Mother Nature’s Purpose is neither complex nor difficult to understand. This is her STORY on how she maintains the smooth Operation and Workings of a complete Solar System of Chcks and Balances that make The Riptides in Life flow as they do, time and time again; year-in and year-out; decade-in and decade-out; century-in and century-out, millennium-in and millennium-out; era-in and era-out and eon-in and eon-out – exactly like clckwork without a single Battery or Tick-Tock. Along with The Passing of due and overdue Time, EVENTS happen. Change changes The Changes that came before and those Changes that follow. Nothing stays the same. They never do. However, the only known and renown Consistency is how all Species interact so that their Wrlds link, work and do not collide, preventing Chaos to occur, knocking The Balance of Nature on her proverbial ‘End.’ That’s consistANTSy, ANT-eract & BalANTS, of course, in ANTese® for those of you ScholasticiANTS following along with THE ANT-abulary® (ANT Vocabulary) here.

Ironically, Nature’s complex Rules emphasize Survival of The Fittest, Luck and being in the Right Place at the Right Time. Yet, Religious Rhyme states ‘The Meek will inherit The Earth.’3 Symbolically, ANTS represANT ‘The Meek,’ yet ne must question:

Q: How meek are ANTS with a Life Span of 130,000,000 years?
What do ANTS know and understand about Life’s Dynamics that Humans just don’t get? Does Humanity’s Problem stem from their Preoccupation with The Act of ‘Getting’ instead of ‘Giving?’ This Debate roars through every Nation (be it social, economic, political, financial, philosophical, nutritious and/or religious) with a coherANT AgreemANT never settled upon.

How can their ‘Extended WarrANTy’ work for the BettermANT of Man? Would Nature continue ‘as is’ if no Creatures existed on Earth? Does Nature unleash the slamming Storms to keep The Populations from exploding? These Questions need Answers & Interpretations (ANTerpretations in ‘ANT’) that can only add Quality to Life.

ENTER: iN THE COMPANY OF ANTS©2009-2010 whose Tagline gingerly reads as:

Born to bug. Born to picnic.

Born to invade. Born to endure.

NOW: Born 130,000,000 years ago

to set a Prime Example in


iN THE COMPANY OF ANTS ©2009-2010.

After all, look about you.


Watch where you step.

Stepped on every Day.

Rained on every Day.

Preyed on every Day.

Poisoned every Day.

The Life of an ANT is not easy.
What’s an ANT to do when faced with all this Negativity & Indignity?
Despite Torment (known as TormANT back at the A-Hill – ANT-Hill), ANTS continue their Routine doing what they do best (which is being an ANT) as dictated by their DNA. To paraphrase what Beatle John Lennon sang: “Let them be” themselves.

As cited in my Movie Script: Father ANT espouses about The Masses of Creatures who maliciously prey upon his Family, yet their Duty to the Planet holds fast, by focusing with The Preservation of Earthly Life.

“Why don’t they pick on Somebody their own Size?
You know who you are, don’t you! Back-off – or else!”

This Action, of course, could be construed as ‘Bug Bullying’ at its Peak.

There you have it. A Creature that’s no BIGGER than this Type, spec-like in Nature (in many Cases) living for tens of millions of years on a Planet filtered with Change, fuelled by and bombarded by Anger, Misunderstanding & Greed. Yet, ANTS see their EnvironmANT, PlANeT Earth as a ‘Movable Feast’ – a Playground for The Fast-Footed – a ‘Picnic in The Park – for the SMALL, meticulous careful ANT shifts, drifts and lifts his Turf and Space, ‘Standing’ (on) his Ground day-in and day-out while abiding by The Rules imposed by Mother Nature.

EvidANTly, with a Lifespan (LifespANT in FluANT ANT) longer than almost every other Species on The Planet Earth, the ANTicular Will & Survival Skills are certainly Traits (marveled in Nature) worth examining closely, in order to see if any special Applications could crss-over to benefit other Species. It’s safe to assume that an ANT App(lication) is not far behind.

Based on Principles, their ‘Drive to stay alive’ has been The Subject of STORieS that date as far back as Aesop, The Fabulist from ANcienT Greece. His Love and Understanding of Animals and Life established him amongst The First Animal Advocates (a Hero to Animals) along with St. FrANTsis of Assissi throughout the endless Annals of LiterANTure that highlight The Animal Kingdom.

Without penning a single Word, Aesop’s Style of Word-of-Mouth Communication established his enduring and timeless Fables and passed The Test of Time as these STORieS entertained Generations, entertaining Civilization as he has. These Accomplishments were all completed before Kodak; before ‘Word-of-Mouse;’ before Facebook; before Twitter; before you and before me. ANTS made their Impressions last.

DISSOLVING EXTINCTION NE FABLE @ A TIME: Proceeding in this Vein, my Name, ADRiENNE SiOUX KOOPERSMiTH embeds the famous Letters of A-E-S-O-P spelling out Aesop, therefore, creatively continuing The Legacy of iN THE COMPANY OF ANTS ©2009-2010 – Sequel #3/7 of:

How Beloved Plush TOYS Redefine Race©2009

a tireless STORY worth absorbing. Because my Name embeds Aesop, that may partly explain why ne of my favorite Writing Modes is Fables. The Goal of this Franchise is to add thoughtful, provocative and insightful Animal STORieS (in BK & Movie/Television Formats) that hopefully will continue to thrill and delight Audiences.

I highly encourage Writers’ Groups and Teachers (acrss the Planet) to spend Part of their Writing Day exploring The Needs of Species on The Endangered & Threatened Species’ Lists (thus preventing further Extinctions from occurring) by collectively posting and publishing their Findings on this Problem. Direct Action can be taken to stop and finally eliminate The Suffering.

“Dissolving Extinction ne Fable at a Time is The Premise of this Campaign,
that begins as a STORY that transitions to a BK,
Movie and Grassroots Movement.”

PURSUING THE RiGHT WAY OF WRiTiNG: Like every worthwhile Process, Writing takes Practice (to perfect) to make it outstanding, but an ANTeresting Topic makes that Drive succeed. ANTS are such a Subject that matters. How is a Good STORY started when the Primary Characters cannot be interviewed; cannot speak to you directly and for the most (importANT) Part cannot be domesticated? The Answer is simple. Personification is used. This is the best Method that will place all Animals (Creatures, PlANTS, Microbes and Man) on The Golden Screen, on their Road to the Red Carpet and THE ANIMAL’s ACADEMY AWARDS®.

After all, Animals play more than a Supporting Role in our Movies. Animals ruled The Earth first – long before Man was sighted. Animals are not only ‘for Play & Amusement,’ they are ‘The Players’ who have amused us all our Lives long and continue to do so, spreading ‘Unconditional Lve’ as their main Means of Expression. By Rite and because of their Appearance in so many Writings, Animals should have their own Oscars, Academy & Golden Globes to emphasize Achievement & Talent over Adversity & Opposition. Critically acclaimed, Observation is the best Method to employ, thus avoiding Prejudice. To carry this Message out in my Writings, these industrious Characters have been renamed:

specifically derived from the Tw Terms:

to better identify them as role-playing ANTS. They meet-up with a Force, GiANT who is BIGGER, more powerful and threatening than they are, yet a softer and gentler Side of GiANT emerges as their STORY unfolds. This Staging then introduces Sequences and SequANTSes that Humans can directly relate (to). Crssover is attained. The STORY is related. They all live happily ever after. Or do they? Or can they? You decide. Your ‘The Write of Passage’ has been grANTed.

Look at those ANTS go! Nearly every Creature is LARGER than they are, yet their perseverANTS’ Level should be applauded and replicated. A Lesson can be learned here by studying their Fortitude. For as LITTLE as an ANT is, this STORY needs a giANT, if merely for The Sake of The ABC’s: Appeal, Balance & Contrast of STORY -Telling. The Cliff Notes tell us GiANT needed to ‘fall’ into the/his Role (synonymous with The Muckety-Muck of ProvANTS) becoming THE ANTS FAMILY’s Sidekick. Their strange and delightful Union alone adds to heightening The Plot, AmbiANTS of The Scenes & ANTics of The Characters (cleverly referred to as: CHARACTANTS®) of THE STORY .

ENTER: GiANT (who is out and about on his Daily ‘Stretch’) suddenly loses his Footing and stumbles ‘n tumbles into The Muckety-Muck of ProvANTS. Meanwhile, seated on a Warbler Leaf, THE ANT FAMILY glides acrss its mirrored Surface Waters. Both are highly startled at their Chance ANT-counter. BIG Splashes tell no Lies! The Ebb and Flow of The Situation presANTed to them causes this unexpected ANTroduction between Tw extremely unlike Species to occur. Is their Day ruined or is their Life just beginning anew? This Meeting starts a symbolically-deep and meaningfully-rich Relationship (initially based on and confused by their Differences) that turns into Similarities & Commonalities where the most obvious (GiANT) meets the most unobvious (THE ANT FAMILY).

“You can’t stop ANTS; otherwise, you’d stop Life.”
Saturday, March 5, 2011 – 6 PM

NEWSWORTHY: This special Bond (that so few have The Opportunity to share and experiANTS) closely resembles the nes Humans hear, read about and marvel over when fierce Animals become Friends. A jaw-smashing Grizzly Bear mothers a young Orphan (of a diverse Species), left in The Woods to ‘pine’ and wither away, alone and defenseless.

A Mama Pig will nurse a Baby Kitten, lost and abandoned in a musty barn on The Plains of The Heartland. Humans see, hear of or read about these AccouNTS often. Batting 1000, these downhome, heart-warming Animal STORieS prove The Species can ‘come together’ as Edward Hicks portrays them in ‘The Peaceable Kingdom,’ a Portrait that sends a Message that We should all heed.

Without needing to paint a Single ANT into this Scene,
We all know where THE ANTS are.

Survival Instincts & The Ability to express Kindness are programmed into each Species. Otherwise, Life could and would not continue. As ANTeresting as they are, The STORY explains how Lessons are learned and passed dwn from Generation-to-Generation, from Breed-to-Breed and from Species-to-Species, no matter how differANT they may seem to be on The Surface. The common Thread here (known as SKiN) is what ties us all together, which is the all-encompassing Theme of my complete Seven (7) Part Cinematic and Literary Franchise called:

How 10 Beloved Plush TOYS Redefine Race ©2009
of which
The QuarterFinalist Winner from:
Scriptapalooza’s International Screenplay Competition: 2010
beating out 3,164 other Movie Scripts
is Sequel 3 of 7

When Species take that extra Step (outside their own ‘Caste, Tribe & Comfort Zone’) above and beyond The Expected to become The Unexpected, Magic happens. A Bond reaches out to other Species that temporarily helps them in their Time of Need. Timeless Gestures of Goodwill bring a Grin and Smile to our Face(s), warms our Heart(s) and opens our Eyes to the endless Possibilities of never suspected or expected Realizations, Relationships & Renewals, just when you thought Life couldn’t get any better than this...

“This Reality
(a vast Improvement over Past Embarrassments)
makes our SKiNS tingle for Joy.”

In our Hearts of Heart, We know Acceptance & Integration are the Right Roads to take. Integrity is fulfilled. To ANTS, AcceptANTS, ANTegration & ANTegrity matter most. A special Chord is struck. Once GiANT and THE ANT FAMILY (comprised of 31 Members) have established and secured that ‘Special Place,’ their AdveNTure (advANTure in Pure ANTese®) quickly begins. Instilling The FAsciNaTion in ‘The Facts of Life’ of every Creature should not be forgotten, as Haste makes Waste. The Deadly Sins of Over-Indulgence should be avoided by all means as they are not recognized in ANT-dom.

After all, One of THE ANT’s 10 CommandmANTS is:
“Every Crumb counts.”
Not only did these Crumbs greatly count as a Meal for The Creatures who enjoyed The Scraps (the Shreds of Stale Bread) left in their Way & on their Turf while Hanzel (that’s hANTzel) & Gretel cavorted throughout The Woods in Search of The Witch, but ANTS impart Valuable Lessons in Frugality, Savings, Teamwork and Providing-for-a-Rainy Day that should become ‘Secnd Nature’ to Man in his Daily Undertakings. In the Best Interest of what Mother Nature wishes to teach, with Virtues (as these) firmly in place, Longevity continues (and continues) as it does for THE ANT.


What transpires when The Army of ANTS (that is: THE ANT Family with its Assembly of 31 Members) and GiANT arrive at the Towering Obelisk of Mother Nature who is patiANTly awaiting their Visit along with her other Guests, Father Time & Aesop?

ENTER ACT 2: ACT 2 divulges and shares all of Aesop’s Secrets; explaining how difficult his Slavery was and how he kept his Spirit alive and intact. Despite his great Suffering, all along he knew his STORieS granted and provided The Structure & Morals that The Greek Citizenry needed to carry-on. Through these Fables, Aesop explained how The Wrld really operated – not only for his Generation, but for Future Societies to behold. Without a Stone Tablet. Without Morse Code. Without Smoke Signals. Without a Telephone. Without Electricity. Without a Lead Pencil. Without Facebook. Without Twitter. Without The Aid of a Throat Lozenge. When something vital needs to be said, it finds a Way. That is The Law of Nature, Mother Nature.
After all, who’s older and wiser? As a Species, Man is only 100,000 years old. In the Original 28 Literary Chapters of:

How 10 Beloved Plush TOYS Redefine Race ©2009

Man is depicted as the Know-It-All that he flamboyANTly claims to be, yet his Behavior is proven wrong, ‘dead wrong’ as the 10 CHARACTOYS® unravel ‘The Secrets of The Vault’ with THE KEEPER. In Sequel #3 of the #7 Manuscripts & Scripts entitled:

31 ANTS & GiANT enlighten Mankind so The Choices he makes gallANTly are the wisest nes to take as (his) Life unfolds. After all, ANTS has been Earth-bound for 130,000,000 years, crawling around, scurrying about and surviving, relying on their own Instincts & Resources. Then, later with The AppearANTS and apparANT Take-over of Man, ANTS’ Diets radically changed as they nibbled on Human Crumbs, Scraps, Leftovers and Morsels no bigger (at times) than a Spec of Dust while suffering every Day from deplorable Upheavals. Throughout The Passage of Time, Mass Adaptations changed THE ANTS’ Modus Operandi as well as all other Animals’ Nature-al Courses.

THE ANTS’ World is cemented over;
THE ANTS’ World is poisoned;
THE ANTS’ World is flooded; and
THE ANTS’ World is blown about

Negativity (with its Adverse Effects) colors The Wrld & our Perception of Life in harmful Ways that are both abusive and hurtful, thus robbing The Beauty of living Life (short as it is) to its Fullest. Thereby, the Fur Pointers of:

How 10 Beloved Plush TOYS Redefine Race ©2009

are vital in helping us conduct the best Life Style We can possibly have (in unison with all the other Creatures) in Today’s volatile Glbal Scene. Reviewing those Themes, they are:

 To eliminate Racism;

 To dispel the Mixed Signals and Ironies We receive in every Day Life;

 To realize fully that your (false and irrationally made) Prejudgments should be
diligently avoided at all Costs & Efforts; and

 To get to The Heart of what really matters is all that matters most.

“Purposes are difficult to see and Goals are hard to attain when your World is colored and enmeshed with The Complexities that Racism, Mixed Signals, Ironies, Misunderstanding and Prejudice contain.

TOYS don’t breathe; they don’t see; they don’t smell;
they don’t hear; they don’t move; they don’t think;

yet TOYS see, hear and feel every Sense & Possibility you do. Upon its Closing Note, THE TOYS’ TALE then leaves us with a meaningful Impression that We should have had known all along, before and in The First Place. These STORieS become an ‘Aha’ Moment that gently leaves us with a Moral in which to improve our Daily Lot in Life. TOYS make for swell Playmates, Imaginary Friends & Secret Confidents. That’s ConfidANTS for the avid ANTS Lovers amongst us.

Somewhere deep, hidden in Man’s Psyche he allows inANimaTe TOYS to tell those Tales (that he cannot) as they truly are – as animated as they must be. When TOYS have ‘their Say-so!’ so much happens! Then (and only then) can Life Lessons be finally learned, remembered and passed along. ReassurANTS, Harmony & Equality are restored, lending themselves to that always ANTicipated Ending of: ‘Happily ever after.’”

Countdown to 60®: 17 Months To Go. An ASKian Perspective

Chicago, IL USA

August 9TH is my birthday.

It comes like clock-work every year for the past 58. True to form. However, at this particular time in my life, looking ahead to 60 seems to be a very significant milestone -- especially since it is a big transition that so many of us babyboomers are looking forward to. Some in complete disgust. Some with astonishing anticipation. The latter case is definitely me.

As the FOUNDER of AFSEE: Advocates For Senior Equality & Enrichment & America's Premier Eventologist, we should celebrate all the days of our lives having been able to make it through so many of them.

This EVENT: COUNTDOWN TO 60®, not only applies to me, but millions of others who for the rest of their lives will be approaching this milestone -- with prosperity, good health and all the things that make for a good life!

WINNING with Words: The CHARLIE maSHEEN Story.

Charlie, if UR reading this, I have a better idea for you and that is: Instead of calling your Program: Charlie's Corner -- that sounds like something a bunch of Quilters would do, I would do a 'take-off' of your last name and all it:

The Charlie Sheen Machine...
The Charlie (Ma)-Sheen
(leave the hypen in or out -- it's up to you).

It has a much more up-beat sound to it and lyrical sound. I've been making up campaigns, words, etc. for decades now!

I am also a Scriptwriter. Long story short, I did beat out 3164 others scripts for an Animated Script I wrote last summer but would like someone to RUN it into Spielberg's -- Disney/Pixar - Tim Burton or Gore Verbinski's Studios.

Since you have time off till your NEXT Big Sheen Shining, could you do that for me? U'd get the cut that is allocated for such a benevolent Act -- that would help with the Kids' college fund, I'm sure - besides providing them with 7 great pix to see. This is what I call:

W I N N I N G!

Just DM: Direct Message me on my FB account.

Good Luck, Charlie!

Countdown to Rango...a GORE VERBINSKI Cinematic Production

It's coming. It's coming soon! Rango. If you live in th Midwest (of the USA), it will be here in 1 day and 40 minutes. In the meantime, I went online to read more about how the movie is made & found this intriguing Answer that GV: Gore Verbinski (Rango's Director) made at:

written by Film Critic:
JOE WILLIAMS of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted on Thu, Mar. 03, 2011 08:32 AM

"The big difference is that with live action, you're given these gifts from your talented actors and you hope to capture them on camera. In animation, you do very little real-time reaction to what's happening. Everything is preconceived in your frontal lobe. I spent 16 months storyboarding this movie with pencil sketches. Then getting it on screen is all minutia, minutia, minutia, fabricating one pixel at a time. But at the end, we want it to feel organic, as if there really is a 6-foot lizard in a desert town, and I'm there with a camera on my shoulder to capture what happens."

It's always in the detail and minute steps that finally get the Movie to the Screen - but how simple it looks to us who don't really appreciate the Process! What a great way to start out the Month of March...

and I must say that for those of you who fall in love with the Chameleon Toy, Folkmanis Handpuppets (folkmanis.com) has a very similar TOY for those of you who want to PLAY. With BORDERS crossing across the USA now -- these prized puppets are 20% off -- that frees you up to see RANGO a few more times -- or to purchase it on DVD when that time comes!

Finish reading the rest of Gore's article at: http://bit.ly/fzVsjb

I read Joe's commentary about TOY STORY back in June -- he's a great film journalist - he seems to know what to ask when the time is write. I give his writing a 2 thumbs up, comparable to GV's directing skills!

ASK on Kind & Gentle Words for...

My Publisher.

My Publisher always likes it when I flush Cyberspace with all SoS: Sorts of Stuff on what I'm writing about. It's 1 thing 1 write but then it’s another thing 2 write about what UR writing on/about. Sort of Seems redundant 2 me, but that’s what UR suppose 2 do in the 21ST Century. It eliminates the Middle Man & Woman 4 The Machine – the PC which eliminates most of R Workforce here in America, that is. I always wondered about CLIFF NOTES, 2. But I’m suppose 2 start those by Mid-July. It’s suppose 2 B the way People understand the Gist of it all. We will see if that’s so. Stop ME: I’m sounding like Andy Rooney!
