Every religion in the world believes that every other religion is superstition. And they’re all correct.


You know your f***ked up, when…

… you say the following:

Janet, I am so proud of you, honey.

You had that cigarette in your mouth and you didn’t drink it.”

Was hast du gesagt?


An ode to Janet…

Open your eyes
So I can understand
The true meaning of brown….

Close your eyes so
I can ask you to open your eyes
once more.


Palestine’s Island Paradise….

An excerpt from the map’s creator:

The Bible contains at least two stories equating the aquatic with the amoral. As Red Sea pedestrians, Moses and the Israelites didn’t even get their sandals moist, while the Lord did some expert smiting on the pursuing Egyptians, by way of the gurgling waters closing in on them. And a few thousand years earlier, Noah kept his binary boatload afloat while all the rest of humanity (and the now extinct species of the animal kingdom) met their watery grave.


Nothing can be Everything….

… and Everything can be Nothing.



Washington Report…

I just love doing this magazine. For one thing, it allows me to get out of the house every so often, which in turn helps me work on my people skills, if you know what I mean.

Also, it’s nice to be able to stay up on what’s happening in the Middle East, the current cauldron causing all sorts of catastrophes. When will we ever learn? Perhaps that is the purpose of human life. And since we haven’t learned yet, perhaps purpose is something that is unachievable. Therein lies the rub.

Why do I keep going back to having no purpose has its purpose? There might just be something to it.



Facts & Theories…

There are several examples of having the facts without knowing the entire process that are accepted as true today. One example of not understanding the process but knowing the process is fact is photosynthesis, that is a plant’s ability to make sugar. We can see the carbon dioxide and the water go into the plant, we can trace those compounds to the chloroplasts and we can measure the sugar that comes out, but we have no idea of how it happened. Yet, photosynthesis is a fact. Another example is gravity. We know that gravity is the attraction of all matter. We do not know why. We have some theories about gravitational attraction, but none are proven. Yet the effects of gravity are measurable and predictable. Gravity is a fact of nature. We do not claim gravity is a theory just because we do not know how it works. There are several measurable natural phenomena that we can predict and use for human benefit, but the how and why may not clearly be known.

Evolution is one of those natural facts.


Great Law & Order line….

Question: What side of the stem cell fence do you come down on?

Answer: If God created man in his image, maybe we’ve all just degenerated from whatever it is floating around in that petri dish…. Come on, I’ll buy you a drink.


Things that make you go, hmmmmm…..

A person can do anything they want, they just can’t do everything they want.



Happy Mother’s Day…

Mom’s really are the best. I don’t think life (as we know it) would be possible without them.

If you don’t do anything else meaningful in your life, hug a Mom today.


Independence Day…

I guess my days of being driven around have come to an end.

I got my driver’s license back today. It’s been a loooong six months. Just ask Janet.


You live around the neck of our woods…

I found this gem today, written on the back of a business card in my wallet.

I just know it must have come from the lips of my sweet Juanita.

I also knew I had to share it.


Gold Cup eve…

Looking forward to my first Gold Cup experience.

Janet even bought me something nice to wear. I only get dressed up for weddings and funerals and now Gold Cups. Well, I guess I did wear something nice to my 30-year High School Reunion. Don’t know what it is, but I have never liked dressing up, until now.

Janet is going to wear a hat.

Did I mention I am looking forward to this?
