YESTERDAY, MY COMPUTER CRASHED AGAIN

I'm thinking:  God must not want me to have a computer.  I had better go along with his decision.  But my son-ind-law came to the rescue and it is working again.  I had a virus attack and the firewall had shut everythning down. He cleaned out a lot of...

THE STRANGEST THING ...

That ever happened to me.  --  All these years later I still wonder about it.   A friend of mine, Gus, showed up at my door one evening.  He had his girlfriend  with him.   I had double dated with him before because he had a nice big car.  He...

I FEEL GYPPED

(No offence intended, Romanians)   I read yestereday that Boomers are to old to ride in sports cars.  I was born before the Boomer's era.  I come from what my son call's the baby-bust generation.   Credit cards were not yet issued.  As late...

MY EGGS TASTED FUNNY, HAD WRITING ON THEM !!!

Uh ohh.  I put the fork down and raced to the kitchen to see what they were all about.  On the carton I read that they came from "lovingly vegetarian fed" chickens.    Vegetarian chickens?   Hell yes!  they had better be!  If they turn out to be...

I guess my mind is made up ...

I  can't in good conscience vote for any of the two party system's candidatres.  There is no lesser of two evils as far as I'm concerned.  Each is as bad as the other.  Actually I don't know anything specifically on Trump.  i just don't know what he...

Too much faith in the power of the Internet

Some of you have insisted that the Internet would set us free and make us immune to takeovers by governments.  I have thught otherwise.  It is more likely to enslave us.   You can't fight city hall especially if it is backed by the federal...

Dennis Prager voting for the Lesser of Two Evils

In the first place Prager makes more sense than just about anyone I ever heard of.  I follow him.  Usually.   I guess it is realism that makes him now support Trump.  It is a better choice than allowing Clinton to win.  For instance he cites the...

17 HOURS Without POWER

Starting at 12:40 last night.  OK, OK.  I understand about the lights BUT everything was out!  Not fair.  Not fair at all.   I spent the day wondering why I couldn't have hot coffee?  Why wouldn't the damned toaster heat my bread?   Why was it...

LOVING NEIGHBORS, NOT COVETING. BLESSING ENEMIES

I'm not sure I know how to do this or even to start this.  A sense of humor might help at first.  "I BLESS mine enemy and hope he finds a nice retirement home and perfect golf course on Borneo." You might even enjoy the joke and eventually let him...

CONFESSIONS .. Good for the soul, they say.

I have spent most of my life being good, honest and true.  But not always successfully.  For instance I have prided myself that I have only stolen twice in my life. very small things and always replaced.  But on reflection I see there is one more time...

A HOMELAND ... November 1947 (to November, 2016 = 70 years)

The morning sunshine beamed straight in the Sunday School's windows, lighting up the opposite wall with it's map of the ancient land of Israel.  The Dead Sea looked like a photo of a PBY sea-plane trying to fly straight up toward Turkey.  According to...

DEMOCRACY HAS BUILT-IN, SURE-TO-FAIL, MODES

Steve Hayes 13 has asked a very pertinent question; "Who is in charge?" He suggest the conclusion that we would be seen as schizophrenic.  Nightbane  may or may not have been answering Steve's question when he suggested that we are no longer a...

Is this a REAL HOAX?? or just another fake hoax???

Back early in this blog site I got into an arguement saying that with so much misinformation out there, we no longer knew what to believe in.  I was assured that the Internet had fixed all that. The Net would keep us straight.  Like the net always...

The Rains came a day early...

Monday was an added heat day but it ended in a dangerous storm about sundown last night.  The rains continue today with the drainage ditches  overflowing into the roads everywhere.   The drops fell at a 45 degree angle.  Even ducks headed for shelter....

A last taste of Summer

Today was hot,  July and August hot.  It has been cooling off each day in September but today it got back to feeling like summer again.  I'm glad.  I wanted one more taste of summer before the fall weather started.   I'm sorry, I know a lot of...
