The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus

How Bessie Blithesome Came to the Laughing Valley

One day, as Claus sat before his door to enjoy the sunshine while
he busily carved the head and horns of a toy deer, he looked up
and discovered a glittering cavalcade of horsemen approaching through
the Valley.

When they drew nearer he saw that the band consisted of a score of
men-at-arms, clad in bright armor and bearing in their hands spears
and battle-axes. In front of these rode little Bessie Blithesome, the
pretty daughter of that proud Lord of Lerd who had once driven Claus
from his palace. Her palfrey was pure white, its bridle was covered
with glittering gems, and its saddle draped with cloth of gold,
richly broidered. The soldiers were sent to protect her from harm
while she journeyed.

Claus was surprised, but he continued to whittle and to sing until the
cavalcade drew up before him. Then the little girl leaned over the
neck of her palfrey and said:

"Please, Mr. Claus, I want a toy!"

Her voice was so pleading that Claus jumped up at once and stood
beside her. But he was puzzled how to answer her request.

"You are a rich lord's daughter," said he, "and have all that
you desire."

"Except toys," added Bessie. "There are no toys in all the world
but yours."

"And I make them for the poor children, who have nothing else to amuse
them," continued Claus.

"Do poor children love to play with toys more than rich ones?"
asked Bessie.

"I suppose not," said Claus, thoughtfully.

"Am I to blame because my father is a lord? Must I be denied the
pretty toys I long for because other children are poorer than I?" she
inquired earnestly.

"I'm afraid you must, dear," he answered; "for the poor have nothing
else with which to amuse themselves. You have your pony to ride, your
servants to wait on you, and every comfort that money can procure."

"But I want toys!" cried Bessie, wiping away the tears that forced
themselves into her eyes. "If I can not have them, I shall be
very unhappy."

Claus was troubled, for her grief recalled to him the thought that his
desire was to make all children happy, without regard to their
condition in life. Yet, while so many poor children were clamoring
for his toys he could not bear to give one to them to Bessie
Blithesome, who had so much already to make her happy.

"Listen, my child," said he, gently; "all the toys I am now making are
promised to others. But the next shall be yours, since your heart
so longs for it. Come to me again in two days and it shall be ready
for you."

Bessie gave a cry of delight, and leaning over her pony's neck she
kissed Claus prettily upon his forehead. Then, calling to her
men-at-arms, she rode gaily away, leaving Claus to resume his work.

"If I am to supply the rich children as well as the poor ones," he
thought, "I shall not have a spare moment in the whole year! But is
it right I should give to the rich? Surely I must go to Necile and
talk with her about this matter."

So when he had finished the toy deer, which was very like a deer
he had known in the Forest glades, he walked into Burzee and made
his way to the bower of the beautiful Nymph Necile, who had been
his foster mother.

She greeted him tenderly and lovingly, listening with interest to his
story of the visit of Bessie Blithesome.

"And now tell me," said he, "shall I give toys to rich children?"

"We of the Forest know nothing of riches," she replied. "It seems to
me that one child is like another child, since they are all made of
the same clay, and that riches are like a gown, which may be put on or
taken away, leaving the child unchanged. But the Fairies are
guardians of mankind, and know mortal children better than I. Let us
call the Fairy Queen."

This was done, and the Queen of the Fairies sat beside them and heard
Claus relate his reasons for thinking the rich children could get

along without his toys, and also what the Nymph had said.

"Necile is right," declared the Queen; "for, whether it be rich or
poor, a child's longings for pretty playthings are but natural. Rich
Bessie's heart may suffer as much grief as poor Mayrie's; she can be
just as lonely and discontented, and just as gay and happy. I think,
friend Claus, it is your duty to make all little ones glad, whether
they chance to live in palaces or in cottages."

"Your words are wise, fair Queen," replied Claus, "and my heart tells
me they are as just as they are wise. Hereafter all children may
claim my services."

Then he bowed before the gracious Fairy and, kissing Necile's red
lips, went back into his Valley.

At the brook he stopped to drink, and afterward he sat on the bank and
took a piece of moist clay in his hands while he thought what sort of
toy he should make for Bessie Blithesome. He did not notice that his
fingers were working the clay into shape until, glancing downward, he
found he had unconsciously formed a head that bore a slight resemblance
to the Nymph Necile!

At once he became interested. Gathering more of the clay from the
bank he carried it to his house. Then, with the aid of his knife and
a bit of wood he succeeded in working the clay into the image of a toy
nymph. With skillful strokes he formed long, waving hair on the head
and covered the body with a gown of oakleaves, while the two feet
sticking out at the bottom of the gown were clad in sandals.

But the clay was soft, and Claus found he must handle it gently to
avoid ruining his pretty work.

"Perhaps the rays of the sun will draw out the moisture and cause the
clay to become hard," he thought. So he laid the image on a flat
board and placed it in the glare of the sun.

This done, he went to his bench and began painting the toy deer, and
soon he became so interested in the work that he forgot all about the
clay nymph. But next morning, happening to notice it as it lay on the
board, he found the sun had baked it to the hardness of stone, and it
was strong enough to be safely handled.

Claus now painted the nymph with great care in the likeness of Necile,
giving it deep-blue eyes, white teeth, rosy lips and ruddy-brown hair.
The gown he colored oak-leaf green, and when the paint was dry Claus
himself was charmed with the new toy. Of course it was not nearly so
lovely as the real Necile; but, considering the material of which it
was made, Claus thought it was very beautiful.

When Bessie, riding upon her white palfrey, came to his dwelling next
day, Claus presented her with the new toy. The little girl's eyes
were brighter than ever as she examined the pretty image, and she
loved it at once, and held it close to her breast, as a mother does to
her child.

"What is it called, Claus?" she asked.

Now Claus knew that Nymphs do not like to be spoken of by mortals, so
he could not tell Bessie it was an image of Necile he had given her.
But as it was a new toy he searched his mind for a new name to call it
by, and the first word he thought of he decided would do very well.

"It is called a dolly, my dear," he said to Bessie.

"I shall call the dolly my baby," returned Bessie, kissing it fondly;
"and I shall tend it and care for it just as Nurse cares for me.
Thank you very much, Claus; your gift has made me happier than I have
ever been before!"

Then she rode away, hugging the toy in her arms, and Claus, seeing her
delight, thought he would make another dolly, better and more natural
than the first.

He brought more clay from the brook, and remembering that Bessie had
called the dolly her baby he resolved to form this one into a baby's
image. That was no difficult task to the clever workman, and soon the
baby dolly was lying on the board and placed in the sun to dry. Then,
with the clay that was left, he began to make an image of Bessie
Blithesome herself.

This was not so easy, for he found he could not make the silken robe
of the lord's daughter out of the common clay. So he called the
Fairies to his aid, and asked them to bring him colored silks with
which to make a real dress for the clay image. The Fairies set off at
once on their errand, and before nightfall they returned with a
generous supply of silks and laces and golden threads.

Claus now became impatient to complete his new dolly, and instead of
waiting for the next day's sun he placed the clay image upon his
hearth and covered it over with glowing coals. By morning, when he
drew the dolly from the ashes, it had baked as hard as if it had lain
a full day in the hot sun.

Now our Claus became a dressmaker as well as a toymaker. He cut the
lavender silk, and nearly sewed it into a beautiful gown that just
fitted the new dolly. And he put a lace collar around its neck and
pink silk shoes on its feet. The natural color of baked clay is a
light gray, but Claus painted the face to resemble the color of flesh,
and he gave the dolly Bessie's brown eyes and golden hair and rosy cheeks.

It was really a beautiful thing to look upon, and sure to bring joy to
some childish heart. While Claus was admiring it he heard a knock at
his door, and little Mayrie entered. Her face was sad and her eyes
red with continued weeping.

"Why, what has grieved you, my dear?" asked Claus, taking the child in
his arms.

"I've--I've--bwoke my tat!" sobbed Mayrie.

"How?" he inquired, his eyes twinkling.

"I--I dwopped him, an' bwoke off him's tail; an'--an'--then I dwopped
him an' bwoke off him's ear! An'--an' now him's all spoilt!"

Claus laughed.

"Never mind, Mayrie dear," he said. "How would you like this new
dolly, instead of a cat?"

Mayrie looked at the silk-robed dolly and her eyes grew big
with astonishment.

"Oh, Tlaus!" she cried, clapping her small hands together with
rapture; "tan I have 'at boo'ful lady?"

"Do you like it?" he asked.

"I love it!" said she. "It's better 'an tats!"

"Then take it, dear, and be careful not to break it."

Mayrie took the dolly with a joy that was almost reverent, and her
face dimpled with smiles as she started along the path toward home.

Cancer Causing Chemicals in Personal Care Products

Topic: short and  interresting topicsAlmost all companies that sell personal care products have potentially harmful ingredients in them, and say it isn't so (a lie)-- but we have proof in this documented FREE Report below!

Back in 1938, when the U.S. Government formed the FDA, it was believed that our skin was the perfect barrier to protect us from potentially harmful chemicals. So the chemicals then in use were "Grandfathered in" as safe and legal to use in products that were to be in contact with human skin. Now we know our skin is much more of a dry sponge and we absorb most things that come in contact with our skin. ( Prove this to yourself. Remove one shoe and sock, put a 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder in the shoe, put the shoe back on, {no sock for this test}. Ten minutes later kiss your spouse. They will tell you about your breath.)

So today, without follow up research to prove their safety, potentially harmful ingredients are in everyday personal care products.

Have you ever read the labels on your deodorant, shaving cream, children's bubble bath, mouthwash and toothpaste BOX???

Product warning labels are shown for a reason. It is a fact that many manufacturers use certain harmful chemical ingredients mainly because they're CHEAP, and give the ILLUSION of working properly But more importantly for the manufacturer, they cost very little to fill the bottle, so it is a bigger profit margin for them. But residues of more than 400 toxic chemicals have been found in human blood and fat tissue.

From 1950 to 1989, the overall incidence of cancer in the U.S. has risen by 54% (smoking related incidences account for less than 25% of the increase). Childhood cancer is up 50%. Today, cancer is the leading cause of death for women aged 35-74. Some researchers believe that many types of cancer starts 20 years before they are diagnosed. Baby Boomers have three times the cancer rate of their grandparents.

In 1901 cancer was considered a rare disease. Statistics show that 1 out of 8000 persons had cancer. Today, according to the American Cancer Society, 1 out of 3 people have cancer. By the year 2000, 1 out of 2 persons will be touched by cancer. (It is a multi, multi-billion dollar business at cancer hospitals. We are robbed of health and wealth)

How much cancer, and other illnesses, are linked to chemical exposure? Sometimes it depends on which "expert" you listen to but even OSHA admits there are at least 880 variations of compounds of chemicals ( that are harmful to your nervous system) and are used in personal care products, cosmetics, and perfumes.

DID YOU KNOW... There is a proven significant trend towards the incidence of ALZHEIMER'S disease among long term users of ALUMINUM based anti-perspirants? They are even linking ALUMINUM to breast cancer, which is the leading killer for women under 40. But almost all store brands use aluminum. NEWAYS deodorant does not. Tests from scientists and doctors show that ALUMINUM goes right to the brain. Parkinson's disease also has been linked to ALUMINUM in the brain.

DID YOU KNOW... That three of the most popular shaving creams combine two chemicals which together form a likely cancer causing agent? They're even listed right on the label. But how many people would know this? The manufacturers are betting "not many"... NEWAYS Products DO NOT have these ingredients. But another product that does is a popular KID'S SHAMPOO!

Sodium lauryl (or laureth) sulfate (SLS) and propylene glycol are two of the most common ingredients found in many personal care products. Others: Petrolatum, Glycerine, Collagen, Kaoloin or Bentonite & Mineral Oil. Sodium lauryl (or laureth) sulfate is a top favorite ingredient listing in kids shampoo & toothpaste.

DID YOU KNOW... Propylene Glycol has over 14 legal synonyms? WHY???
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate has over 90 Legal synonyms? WHY???

DID YOU KNOW... That the journal of the American College of Toxicology reports that (SLS) is easily absorbed into your skin and builds up in your heart, liver, lungs, and brain... even if you wash it right off after using it!

The Medical College of Georgia has done testing showing that SLS forms dangerous levels of cancer-causing nitrosamines when combined with several other common ingredients found in many personal care products.

Your skin is the largest breathing organ of your body, and many chemicals can be absorbed through it. Nicotine and medicine skin patches wouldn't work if the skin couldn't absorb. Yet almost ALL shampoos contain SLS.

DID YOU KNOW... That propylene glycol, used in many facial moisturizer and hand/body lotions, has been found to cause kidney damage and liver abnormalities in scientific and animal testing? Propylene glycol may damage cell membranes causing rashes, dry skin, and surface damage to the skin. Sierra brand anti-freeze for your car is mostly propylene glycol (read it right off the label). Most auto anti-freezeswill switch to propylene glycol (from ethylene glycol) in the near future. Is this the best thing to be putting on your skin? At NEWAYS we don't think so, so we don't use it! Ethylene glycol is first ingredient listed on the antifreeze jug.

DID YOU KNOW... That KIDS' bubble baths have warning labels on them? Why? It is because the sodium lauryl sulfate in them eats away at the mucous lining of the skin and causes urinary tract infections. Bad for little girls of any age. NEWAYS has a much better product that is safe to use, with NO WARNING LABELS or animal testing needed!!

Such as:
WARNING LABELS: Keep out of reach of children under 6 years of age. Do not swallow. ... In case of accidental ingestion, seek professional assistance or contact a poison control center IMMEDIATELY.

If you are still not convinced, just read the WARNING LABELS on your child's bubble bath... Bad for little girls of any age!! A world-renowned expert, toxicologist, Chairman of the nationwide Cancer Prevention Coalition, and co-author of Safe Shopper's Bible, Dr.. Samuel Epstein has said that, "Lifelong use of these products... clearly poses major avoidable cancer risks to the great majority of the U.S. consumers, particularly in infants and young children."

DID YOU KNOW... That the Research to Prevent Blindness, Inc. reports that sodium lauryl sulfate builds up in the eye tissue and may be a cause of eyesight problems in many children? You will find sodium lauryl (or laureth) sulfate in most shampoos. NEWAYS does NOT contain potentially harmful ingredients in their shampoos!

DID YOU KNOW... That many children are rushed to the emergency rooms each year due to alcohol poisoning from drinking mouthwash? One of the most popular brands of mouthwash is 26.9% alcohol. In adults, high alcohol mouthwash increases the risk of oral cancer by as much as 60%.

NEWAYS Mouthwash (Eliminator) uses no alcohol and it works great, with over 30 uses such as a bacteria killer, foot odor, Poison Ivy and Poison Oak, etc.

Last September, the Boston Globe quoted Senators Ted Kennedy and Orrin Hatch as saying That "the Government Accounting Office has identified 125 cosmetic ingredients suspected of causing cancer. Other ingredients may cause birth defects."

DID YOU KNOW... Recently a thousand people had to be evacuated from their homes, By order of OSHA because a factory near there homes had a one gallon spill of a hazadorous chemical. This ingredient is used in hair shampoo!!!!

All these harmful chemicals found in our everyday products, combined with the pollution of our air and water, has created an environment that is no longer "user friendly." However, there are safe alternatives that we can use-- NEWAYS !!

The Industrial World USES Propylene Glycol: Industrial Antifreeze, Brake/Hydraulic Fluid, Paint, Airplane De-Icer. These have chemicals have been found to cause adverse health effects : contact dermatitis, kidney damage and liver abnormalities; Inhibit skin cell growth in human tests; Damage cell membranes causing rashes, dry skin and surface damage to the skin.

Sodium Lauryl (or Laureth) Sulfate: Engine Degreaser, Garage/Concrete Floor Cleaner, Car Wash Soap; Surrounds hair follicle in shampoo to keep it from growing, causes hair to fall out; keeps children's eyes from developing properly, causes cataracts in older people; In Toothpaste: Weakens enamel on teeth to cause cavities: SLS is very abrasive and may burn the skin, mouth, Canker sores, or scalp.

Cocamide, Lauramide DEA (diethanolamine): is readily absorbed through the skin, is a potentially cancer causing ingredient found in many mainstream cosmetics and toiletries. Reacts with nitrates in cosmetics to form another potential carcinogen/DEA. Your blood cells immediately take it through your skin to the body's organs we need: Liver, Kidneys, Heart, etc..


An Atheist

Topic: short and  interresting topicsAn atheist walking through the woods, enjoying the sights
and sounds of
nature.
As he was walking alongside the river he heard a rustling
in the bushes
behind him.
He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly charge towards
him.
The atheist ran as fast as he could up the path.
He looked over his shoulder and saw that the bear was
closing in on him.
He looked over his shoulder again, and the bear was even
closer.
He tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick
himself up but
saw the bear right on top of him, reaching for him with his
left paw and
raising his right paw to strike him. At that instant the
Atheist cried
out: "Oh God! Help me!..."
Time stopped.
The bear froze.
The forest was silent.
As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of
the sky: "This
is God! You done there! For your whole life you have denied
my very
existence but now because your life is in danger you ask
for
help?!
"Well, yes." replied the atheist.
Well, I will help you but you must promise to become a
Christian and
follow a Christian life and example."
The atheist replied, "How about this God? I will remain an
atheist but YOU
make the BEAR a CHRISTIAN."
"As you wish." replied God.
The light went out.
The sounds of the forest resumed.
And then the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws
together and
bowed his head and spoke:
"Lord, bless this food, which I am about to receive from
thy bounty
through Christ our Lord, Amen. "

God Are You Real ?

Topic: short and  interresting topics The child whispered,
" God, speak to me "
And a meadowlark sang,
But the child did not hear.


So the child yelled,
" God, speak to me! "
And the thunder rolled across the sky,
But the child did not listen.


The child looked around and said,
" God, let me see you "
And a star shone brightly,
But the child did not notice.


And the child shouted,
" God, show me a miracle! "
And a life was born,
But the child did not know.


So the child cried out in despair,
" Touch me God, "
Just to let me know you are here!


God reached down,
And touched the child.
But the child brushed the butterfly away,
And walked away unknowingly.
