Here We Go Again!

I thought I was through with this stuff.
The last time I attempted to help a hard headed boy with Algebra was way back in 1996.  I ended up taking off my slipper to use as a head bopping tool in order to allow the knowledge to flow through his mind.  Here I am again, attempting the impossible because I'm TOO OLD for this!!!!!

Just more Stuff,,,,,

I read some wise words once, but sadly, they were uttered by a made up character in a book.  I have hopes that the author of the book, "The Lost World" by Michael Crichton, put the words into the character's mouth and perhaps a seed of his wise ideas have sprouted and will become common knowledge some day. Michael Crichton died a couple of years ago and that is very sad.

As the wise, made up, Dr. Ian Malcolm once said, "What makes us think that as humans, we are aware?  Where is the evidence for this?  Humans never think for themselves because they find it much too uncomfortable.  For the most part, members of our species simply repeat what they are told, (or hear, or read) and become upset if they are exposed to any different view.  The most characteristic human trait is conformity!  Other animals fight for territory or food; humans fight for their 'beliefs'".

Dr. Malcolm also believed that the internet would be the beginning of the end of our species because it would mean the end of innovation.

This guy was seriously wise.

There is a hole in the siding of my house.  I first learned about this hole when I found suspicious plaster dust and the bottom of said hole behind my computer monitor.  The man of the house ran over something while mowing that could have become a lethal weapon had it been emerged from beneath that mower in a different direction. 

Please forgive me if I refuse to put my faith, (and my hard earned dollars saved for literary purchases)  in a wet-behind-the-ears, barely out of diapers, poor little rich kid who don't know BEANS about Nuttin'.  Talk about never having trod a mile in anybody's shoes but those of some designer's,,,,Heaven deliver us. Please!

I just love these kids,,,,

Hope in Chili

Sometimes you look around at all the meanness and ugly going on in this world and you wonder what's to become of mankind.  Then God sends us a miracle and you know that all will be ok,,,at least for awhile longer.

Welcome home fellas!

It's as dry as popcorn farts around these parts.  Could someone send us a little rain please?

I knew I've been feeling down but didn't realize anyone else had noticed until the Terrorist looked at me and said Nanaw, you need Cymbalta.

I think maybe I do.
