Prophetic VISIONS, My Experience

My wife and I had come to a parting of the ways. Seventeen years of marriage and now irreconcilable differences.  We agreed to a “friendly divorce” and separating property in a peaceful way.  No lawyers to muddy the waters in hopes of a bigger fee. ...

TRUE PROPHECIES AGAINST ALL ODDS

  All religions, arts, and sciences are branches of the same tree.  All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man’s life – lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom. – Albert...

INTERESTING IDEA ON STATE BANKRUPTCY

New York, Illinois, California and other states are toying with the idea of becoming bankrupt.  If that happens, the rest of us --- the 47 remaining states will have to pick up the tab and pay their bills. It denotes a total failure to govern...

Is PROPHECY POSSIBLE?

Is prophecy possible??  Of course not. Common sense says it is impossible.  If it IS impossible then it can't be done.  ... Or can it? Is common sense the only reality there is?  Could there be another way of looking at things?  Where does common...

"A HOUSE DIVIDED AGAINST ITSELF..."

"...CANNOT STAND."  Abe Lincoln - 1858. It is even truer today than it was when Lincoln said it. America is at a cross roads.  Each side believes the other side is evil.  Many politicians push the division even further.  There is no turning back...

LA Ain't NOTHIN' --- (Spell Check Figured Out)

Los Angeles.  The argument has been going on for a hundred years,  Is it a city? Or 40 towns in search of a city. If you count your citizens the way they do,  it is the second largest city.  But Chicago has never given up on being Second city.  New...

CONCERNING APOPHENIA

Apophenia is recognizing shapes that may sometimes be threatening.  (No, Steve, this is not the promised blog.)  When I read the blog my first thought was No. I don't make that mistake. I don't automatically accept shapes as a threat.  Since I'm not...

DNA Searches for TEN LOST TRIBES

This was one of the first things I thought of when news of how DNA testing could trace ancestry back to its sources very far back.  We may be able to find the lost tribes. I was just reading a comment on a blog in another site concerning whether...

Fun Lyrics: He's LARGE

The song Olive Oyl sang to Bluto on the day they were to be married. He's Large Lyrics Harry Nilsson He's tall Good lookin' And he's large He's large Large Tall Large So large And he's mine He's not a mandolin...

SOME LAWS ARE VERY STUPID.

The law or at least the interpretations of laws is very stupid.  For instance the laws about not touching a dead body until the police arrive.  Unless you see a knife sticking of the back, you will not know the person is dead until you examine the...

OUR POOR ANAs

    Open letter to my lost daughter. Dear Ana, Your mother and I will not be visiting you until the snow melts  and it is spring again.  You lie in a snow covered cemetery.  It is too disheartening to visit you there or to remember the...

BEST OFFER SO FAR

My best offer yet,  But I think I'll hold out a little longer.  Maybe they'll offer me $10,000 for only payment of $4.00.  That would be even better, don't you  think? This was addressed to undisclosed recipients.   Where is benin republic.  Why do...

THOUGHTS ON SUICIDE

I admit it, I do not understand it.  The taking of one's own life.  It has never happened in my close family, but I have seen it three times in my extended family -- people I knew in my own life. Twice it was because of an incurable, wasting and...

Sexy Tuesday, EARLY MORNING LOVE

I woke early. The numbers on the clock said 2:53. Warm winter rain out side. It is too hot. I have kicked the covers off both of us in the bed.  Warm, cozy, dreamy, yet I am very conscious.  I seem to be down toward the foot of the bed.  A faint...

WHAT AM I ?

What am I,  Liberal?  Conservative?  Republican?  Democrat?  Libertarian? As soon as I designate my self as one or the other, someone else comes along with a preconceived idea of what those titles mean and then I'm sure that title doesn't fit me. ...

The POLIO YEARS

There was a time around my town when i was called 'Shorty,' which was strange as i was the tallest kid in my class at school.  No, my classmates didn't call me this.  It was people who saw me around town. This has to have been the summer I was 13...

".. It's Too Darn Late."

"Sparrow in a treetop, sparrow in a tree top          Though he loves his mate.                                   Sparrow in a treetop, sparrow in a treetop            Scared of goin' home because it's too darn late."   A strange...

A STARVED WOODPECKER in a SEA OF GRASS

This title just came to me out of the blue.  It is a very compelling title and needs something really impressive to set it off.  I'm sorry that I don't have a story to go with it.  I am certainly not starved and I do know where the trees are.  I keep...

AFRAID to LOOK UP OLD FRIENDS

Things they never told you about getting yourself superannuated.  If you die young, you die once. But if you live a long time you die whenever one of your friends dies. In my mind, you see, all the people I ever knew, still exist exactly as I saw...

Please Explain WILLIAM SAROYAN

...to me,  some of you literary types. He was famous, but why?  I don't get him.  His dialog is like a fairy story.  Things happen in his stories without a reason.  He writes mysterious exchanges that seem to have no background and no foreground. ...

Forgotten BEAUTIES

Happy Birthday to Luise Rainer, 101 years old this week. I have just watched two old Hollywood films that I have seen two or three times before.  They starred Luise Rainer.  She won consecutive Academy Awards for them.  Her beauty always impressed...

MAKING LIKE A HERO...

Make like a hero and look like a schlamiel. There was a fire in the motel I was staying at for the convention.  The girls in the next cabin were drunk and hysterical as they stumbled out.  Two of their number were still in there.  The firemen...

The DEATH of COMMUNICATIONS

Rush Limbaugh once said “Words mean things.”  Bill Clinton proved him wrong.  Through ill usage and spin, words mean noting.  They are just puffs of air. In growing up I was convinced that modern language would prevail. Once words had been properly...

TALK ABOUT USELESS

Waking up this morning with an ancient jingle on my mind.  One from 50 years ago.  For a store 3000 miles from here that probably no longer exists.  But that's the way it goes. Jingles never die. Channel 11 in Los Angeles must have played it over and...
