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...

My Father DID NOT TASTE DEATH

The day before he had been raking leaves out from under hedges and low trees.   He did not accomplish much. "If that is all I'm good for, it is time for me to get on out of here," he told my uncle.  In the evening he ate a small plate full and went to...

Aleppo -- Schleppo!!!

How the press can make anyone look stupid. I've watched them do this in years past and now I see them pulling this old trick on Gary Johnson.    The reporter suddenly turned cryptic and turned toward Johnson. "What about Allepo?"    It is not a...

Time to say Goodbye---

Not me.  I'm speaking of Goodbyes in general.  They are sad times when you lose a mate or a buddy or anyone you like to death or when they move far away to another continent.  'Sionara,'  'Go manasie,'  'So long.'   Sad time ahead.  But it doesn't...

IN THE STILL OF THE DAY...

That is what I called the early hours before my state had daylight saving times.  About 4:30 to 5:30 am.   No one was up except me and the sun.  i'd go out and get the morning paper reading the entire thing before anyone was moving anywhere.  It was...
