What really was happening in Yugoslavia..
Croatia’s former spy chief, suspected communist criminal, Josip Perkovic, has been extradited to Germany on Friday 24 January on suspicion of masterminding the murder of a Yugoslav dissident.
He was handed over to the German authorities at Zagreb airport and flown to Munich, reported Croatian TV.
A surprise development that will surely warm up the hearts of many a desolate and tortured World War II and post-WWII victim of communist crimes is now announced!
Josip Perkovic will not only be faced in Germany’s courts with the case of the murder in 1983 of Croatian émigré Stjepan Djurekovic but will also face questioning regarding all liquidations of Croatian émigrés on German territory, in which he was involved as a highly positioned communist Yugoslavia spy. That is, he will be confronted with tape recordings (from 1970’s) of his own conversations with his colleague Josef Müller, a German national who had lived…

It is almost time for the Olympics.
~~January 27, 2014~~

Everything vibrates. What does it mean?
Below is a post I wrote back in 2008. As time is short this week due to some study work I have to do, It ties in nicely with January’s theme as we wake up to the Laws of the Universe.
The Law of Vibration
All things move, vibrate, and travel in circular patterns. Each and every thing has its own unique vibrational frequency. Frequency is defined as the number of times of oscillation; no two things are the same.
The differences between ‘matter’ and ‘energy’ are really the differences between the vibrations of each. For example we have electricity, heat, Light. Then we have trees, flowers, animals and humans, minerals etc.
If we were to look closely at wood, metal and stone, blood and tissue through a high powered microscope, you would see each oscillating at a different vibration as each is a different density.Moving in-between these particles…
