So let’s build a Holiday Gifting List a little differently this year. I’ll post a few of my personal favorites from my collections on zazzle. Lemme show ya a couple of cheapie stocking-stuffers that will blow your mind:

Your One-Stop Christmas Shop

Widow’s Mites of Mark 12-41

Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow put more into the treasury than all the others. For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.”

These coins are bronze lepta and prutot of Alexander Jannaeus, the Hasmonean King of Judaea from 103 to 76 B.C. Although these coins were minted long before Christ’s lifetime, they were still in circulation during the first century A.D. They were the lowest denomination coins circulated at the time of Jesus.

I’m making Christmas/Chanukah Gift Packets with these incredible 2,000 year-old genuine ancient Judean coins that were in circulation during the time of Jesus, and some dating to the time of the Macabees, and they’re only $35 a pop!

These are NOT replicas or reproductions. They are the Real Thing, and there are NOT that many around now, due to the war in that area of the world, and there’s no sign of it letting up anytime soon. Continue reading

When It Rains, It Pours


It’s true; when it rains, it pours, and that’s not just Morton’s Iodized Salt. I haven’t gotten a minute to write a blog for many days now, and here I’m writing two, one right after the other…Well, it can’t be helped. The screenshot above shows the new Griffon Palace, part of Ancient Rome at the Ashram. I wanted to take the extra minute to remind you that the Holiday Season is coming. Not only can you express your desire to help the Ashram with your Holiday Gift, but you can enrich the lives of a number of friends, by taking advantage of the Holiday Gift Membership I’ve asked the Board to offer. You can get a full 30-Day Gift Membership for a family member, friend or even business associates, employees, anyone you want to treat to a really fun month=long series of great activities and music and art events, as well as meditation retreats, tai-chi workouts and much, much more. The 30 Day Gift Membership is only $10 for the whole month, and that includes all the extras!!! Your guest gets all the privileges of full membership, including use of a plasma power chamber!!! There’s no limit to the number you can invite — well, actually, there is a somewhat finite number — 800 — that’s our Limit of Expansion. We can’t cram any more than 800 avatars into the Ashram, period, so that sort of says something on the order of “There will never be 1 million avatars in one region at one time.” That’s probably true, and it’d be awfully hard to walk around in there if there were, eh?

See You At The Top!!!
