Tiny things matter

Yesterday, my daughter came by to say hello and show me something special-so she said. She had stopped by a house to look at poodle pups and met a man and his wife-she was a deputy somewhere else and he's wheelchair bound. As they visited and talked he recognized my name and went and got a special picture he had- and showed it to her. In high school- he had a lot of problems and the school counselor gave him this picture and he cherished it, had it laminated, and kept it on the wall of each house he lived in. It was a picture of spiderman on a 3 foot square of butcher paper- signed and dated by------- me. In 10th grade I had drawn it, signed and dated it-while I was sitting in the principles office-lol. I was in the office for drawing in class and not paying attention-go figure. Spiderman was a hero to this man and that picture inspired him all these years. He got married 12 years to the day-of the date on the poster.
Kind of makes you stop and think sometimes about how tiny things can make such a huge difference in later years in other peoples lives.

Air conditioning

I saw a small article on coasttocoastam, and it got me to thinking. We live in our little air conditioned spaces at home and at work. Air conditioners are the worst energy consumers and emit terrible amounts of heat. Remember back in the "ole "days of no AC's, people had windows open and ate supper on the porch. Kids played outside and everyone found excuses to be outside in the cooler air. There were trees for shade and activities were planned under them and around them. Short sleeves and shorts were the normal attire, houses had fans going everywhere, high ceiling homes were the coolest, they had plenty of air flow thru them. The electric bills were dramatically lower and people got to see each other more and say hello.
Oh well-just me ranting in my air conditioned home.

no cost insurance

Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-muslim populations conquered through jihad. Specifically, it is the TAXING of non-muslims in exchange for tolerating their presence AND as a coercive means of converting conquered remnants to islam.

The ObamaCare bill is the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia muslim diktat in the United States . Muslims are specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance, and also from the penalty tax for being uninsured. Islam considers insurance to be “gambling”, “risk-taking” and “usury” and is thus banned. Muslims are specifically granted exemption based on this. How convenient. Meanwhile, Louis Farrakhan will have no such penalty and will have 100% of his health needs paid for by the de facto government insurance. Non-muslims will be paying a tax to subsidize muslims. Period. This is Dhimmitude.

Dhimmitude serves two purposes: it enriches the muslim masters AND serves to drive conversions to islam. In this case, the incentive to convert to islam will be taken up by those in the inner-cities as well as the godless Generation X, Y and Z types who have no moral anchor. If you don’t believe in Christ to begin with, it is no problem whatsoever to sell Him for 30 pieces of silver.

privacy on facebook

WASHINGTON — The head of the House Judiciary Committee is asking Google Inc. and Facebook to cooperate with government inquiries into privacy practices at both companies.

Michigan Democrat John Conyers sent letters to Google and Facebook on Friday amid mounting concern that the two online companies are not adequately protecting personal privacy on the Internet.

Facebook has come under fire for sharing user information with a handful of other online services as part of its "instant personalization" program, which is intended to let Facebook members share their interests in everything from music to restaurants with others in their social network.

Facebook simplified its privacy controls in response to the backlash among users.

Several privacy watchdog groups have filed a complaint against Facebook with the Federal Trade Commission, whichis reviewing social networks' privacy policies.

A Facebook spokesman said the company looks forward to meeting with Conyers' staff to explain its privacy practices and policies.

Conyers stopped short of saying his committee will begin its own investigations into Facebook and Google.

Google recently admitted that it had sucked up fragments of e-mails, Web surfing behavior and other activities over public Wi-Fi networks while it was photographing neighborhoods for its "Street View" mapping feature.

At least two House members have asked the FTC to look into the matter and are seeking more information from Google about the incident.

Google has hired a security consulting firm to make an encrypted copy of all the U.S. data collected by Street View, according to records in a federal lawsuit filed against the company in Portland, Ore. The judge overseeing that case has ordered Google to retain the data.

Global Domination

Veteran Bilderberg researcher and bestselling author Daniel Estulin has once again acquired a copy of the agenda for the annual meeting of the world's power elite. In an exclusive interview with The Corbett Report earlier today, Estulin revealed what the Bilderbergers will be discussing at this year's confab in Sitges, Spain on June 3-6, 2010.
According to the documents—which Estulin obtained from his sources inside the secretive group—issues to be discussed in this year's formal deliberations are:
1. Will the Euro Survive? 2. Development in Europe: Europe's Exit Strategy...On Hold? 3. Do We Have Institutions to Deal With the World Economy? 4. Greece: Lessons and Forward-looking Strategies 5. NATO and Afghanistan: The Practical Agenda for the Alliance 6. Iran and Russia: Economic and Financial Threats to the Alliance 7. The Consequences of War Against Terrorism 8. The Influence of Domestic Issues on American Foreign Policy 9.The Outlook for Japan's Economy 10. The Future of the U.S. Dollar: Alternative Scenarios
That the Bilderbergers—essentially a talking shop for European and North American power players—are interested in discussing the current meltdown of the European economy should come as no surprise, especially as the group's attendee list includes many of the key financiers and string pullers who helped steer Europe into the crisis in the first place. Past attendees of the meeting include current EU President Herman Van Rompuy who got the job as the first non-elected head of the undemocratic European Union after a special wine and dine session with Bilderberg steering committee members. Last year he praised the increased role of G20 in dealing with the global financial crisis. Other key Bilderbergers include Jean-Claude Trichet, who, as head of the European Central Bank, was instrumental in helping to craft the current European bailout which itself is designed to incentivize the bankruptcy of Europe. Trichet, too, also recently called for global government to regulate the world economic meltdown that his fellow Bilderbergers helped to create.
Those familiar with the Bilderberg group's long-cherished dream of achieving global government through the creation of an international financial framework will be unsurprised to see that a debate on the question "Do We Have Institutions to Deal With the World Economy?" is the third order of business at this year's meeting. Nor will it be a surprise when the question is inevitably answered with the standard globalist line that international institutions like the IMF and the World Bank need to be "strengthened" and even given as a result of the crisis they have brought about, exactly as Bilderberg observers have been predicting for years. Indeed, as Estulin himself notes in his latest book, Shadow Masters , former U.S. Undersecretary of State George Ball expressed the ambition of the globalists in an address to the 1968 Bilderberg meeting in Mont Tremblant when he stated that they were interested in developing a "world company" to take over the "archaic political structure of nation states"

In school - history was boring and I felt it was a waste of my valuable time. I graduated high school 30 years ago and now have discovered with time that history is fantastic and amazing. With the ease of info on the internet, I have studied so many new facts and places and have decided that maybe what you learn in school is very important-hahaha. I have seen and watched and read and enjoyed all I have learned very much. It is a shame kids cannot enjoy and learn more at a young age about history. History must be presented in an enjoyable fun manner and made more exciting in school so kids can sink their teeth into it better- I hope. History must also be presented in an open and honest fashion-with no bias of any kind so kids can form and honest opinion.

little things

Isn't it amazing how much little things can affect you in big ways! A smile from someone you love, a light touch or a brush up against someone you care for can light up your day. The look in a babies eyes as they are enjoying the stupid faces you are making at them, or the look of pride as they do something you showed them-always makes my heart swell with happiness. The pure happiness my dog shows just for me extending a finger and touching his nose as I pass, the pleasure a coworker feels when I say " You did a good job " -just goes to show how much little things ca affect each of us all the time. So smile and make someones day special.

No time

As the title emplies-there never is enough time to do the things I desire. My life has become fun and so full of love but sadly also full of work too. Each second out of work is spent with family, enjoying the fortunate times and tresures I have been blessed with. One of these days I will set down and start my real writing-journals and books-but blogging occasionly suffices for now.

My Internet Love

This is a shot of us at the Bufadora in Ensenada-Baja California.

Life is so unpredictable

Hello to one and all. It is a shame that this is the first post of this year-lol!! One year ago in October- I met on the internet one of the most amazing young ladies I have ever encountered, by accident. We both became friends and things developed into possibly much more. So I took vacation and went to Baja California for New Years. I spent a blissful week at Ensenada with the most wonderful woman in the world. I saw the Bufadora, wineries, took harbor cruise, ate way too much food, walked the beautiful streets at night. I never shopped so much in my life. I was in a paradise. But reality always catches up with you, and I had to come home. But that 11 days were so fantastic. That was an adventure I will always treasure and remember.
After returning home, I decided that it really sucked not having Selene with me here- so we started chatting about her coming here. In February on the 14th, she arrived in Kansas at her kinfolks and I went and picked her up. She now lives here with me and we will marry soon. She is 2 months pregnant and we are so happy. I found true love-and on the internet.

strange people-especially me

Isn't it strange how you can run across the strangest people on the Internet and at the same time-meet some of the nicest. Sure is hard to distinguish between the two at first. Unless you are neighbors- HI MARY ANN- its good to hear from you. I chat on instant messenger with a few ladies and have run across money scams, dirty cams and accidentally met some wonderful people. One lady in Holland is fantastic to talk to-no baloney, straight to the point hilarious nut like me. Another lady finally deleted her profile because of her job- but she opened my eyes to many things and I sure enjoyed our chats. I sure miss her allot. And yet another one has captured my heart-but my brain refuses to believe it yet-hahaha-oh well-someday I might learn to live and follow my brain instead of my heart. Till then- I follow my heart. I have one friend in Brazil who is an orthodontist. She is a hand full. Another in China-a dainty little traditional lady who loves this loco Texas slang I guess. A few ladies are from the Philippines. The point is- we exchange daily little comments and brighten up each others world allot. For little or no effort or time-a difference in someones life can be achieved-once in a while or daily. What if everyone tried this at the same time in the US alone. THAT would be something amazing to witness.

peach blossums

Between work and kids and school activities, not much day is left open for my getting to play on my pc. I enjoyed this weekends weather so much. It felt like late spring and felt too good to stay indoors. Even the grass invited me to crank up the mower and give it a trim. All the trees have buds all over them and the peach tree is in full bloom. It was so invigorating to spend all that time outside after being cooped up in the house during all the cold weather. Face it folks----SPRING is really a very great time of the year-a fantastic season of blooms and fresh life in old dead looking things. It is hard not to have a fresh "spring" in your step and outlook this time of year. Now I guess I'll go and close the windows and turn on the heaters-supposed to be 36 tonight---boo hoo.

Texas weather

Nothing beats living in Texas- nowhere else feels like home to me. Wide open spaces, and plenty of friendly faces, greet you every where you look. WELL-some are friendly and some honestly are quite scary, but you know what I mean. Texas has it all-including the most confusing weather you could imagine. Freezing cold one day and shorts weather the next day. On any given day-as I travel around the area as I work- I encounter nature at its finest. From delightful deer to crazy wild hogs, I never know what to expect. This morning I arrived at work all bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready for another Monday to unfold, feeling rather good. As I unlocked the garage at 630 AM, a little bird flew out and whacked me in the head. Which in turn made me dump my whole cup of hot coffee all over my front side!! I then backed up abruptly and bumped into a coworker who dumped his coffee cup all over my backside!!
Needless to say-I had all the coffee I could possibly want, and the day continued to be a typical Monday. Oh well-guess it could have been worse.

meaningless rambling

A daylight shot of my car-love it so much.

I was very proud of additions I made to the car Saturday-so I washed it early Sunday morning in the cold and took this photo. Guess it makes me feel young at heart. All the young pups at work call me the OLD MAN!! Go figure- I am only 44. And I have to wear reading glasses to see fine print. I am not old yet. Just on my way real good. I always have advice for the other boys and they all say {ok DAD}-we hear ya! The boss man scolded me for spinning the tires on one of the trucks and said with a smile-you are supposed to set an example, not be the example. Then we both laughed-never thought I'd be looked upon as the responsible elder others look at for guidance and mentorship. Guess I am growing up a little. Still can't get any of the boys to race me and my car yet, tho. They are afraid this old man would kick their butt. HAHAHA Life is only as much fun as you let it be.

I am having a ball!!!

Wonderful Saturdays

I work half a day Sunday evenings instead of Saturdays- so I had the day off. I managed to put brakes on all the way around my car, get the oil changed, replaced the batteries, hoses and belt, checked all fluids, washed and vacuumed it, drove to Sequin and ordered a part for my oven, then drove to San Antonio and bought and installed a set of Koenig wheels on the car, installed a set of Ricaro pilot seats in front of it, installed fender vents on front fenders and red led washer nozzles on hood. All in all- I need to go to work to rest. These days off are tiring. Forgot to go grocery shopping tho. Had to take a pic in the dark.

I believe in...

I believe in ...? That could be a trick question or a start to a fight or a long debate or many different things. So many of the people I see on a daily basis at work or in town, don't seem to believe in a whole lot. ME- I believe in a lot of things. I believe in miracles, my kids, love, being alive, UFOs, reading, listening to good music, Mom and Dads, schools.... the list could go on forever.
I believe in you too! I believe in being kind to others and polite and being on time to work. I guess I believe in a way of life that used to be the norm. So I try to fuse the then and now and make it good. So far it is working.

I believe I have no clue what this post is about- my pain meds are REALLY working good. Love you all.

Thank goodness for DENTIST's

Good god man-I had a toothache and sinus headache all weekend. Made my weekend REALLY long. Started calling dentists this morning trying to find one open on a holiday. Thank goodness -I found one. She asked me after looking at my terrible teeth-would I like to pull it now or schedule another time. DUH-for me to break down and go see a doctor or dentist- it's gotta be bad.
I told her I'm not leaving this chair till that tooth is out-period. So she pulled out 3 teeth!! Two of them surgically. Guess she believed me.
So I then spent the rest of the day with a half deadened face and swole up cheek. At least I didn't drool all afternoon.
All in all- I still thank all the doctors and dentists out there. Everyone hates to see you-but feel better after the visit-sort of.
Later gators-my pain meds are working real good.

Howdy neighbors

After a little break-I'm back ready to bore you to death. Kids asked me the other day what my New Years resolution was-I told em "keep breathing" and so far that's a good one to keep. Told the boss man the other day I sure couldn't wait for the other two kids to grow up and he asked why. Was I going to be glad to get rid of them? NO-just maybe my zoo will stop expanding!
The school sent home a little cabbage plant with my 8 year old for him to grow for an experiment. He was all excited and gave me the papers that they sent. It said to give the cabbage plant 4 square FOOT of growing space.
Its January, freezing cold, and he wants a 4 foot square pot for the living room for his cabbage plant! Have they lost their minds? Think I ought to go fill the teachers pickup bed with soil and plant it in there.
Oh well-life goes on!

Styling and Profiling

The weather is finally starting to actually cool down here a bit so I dusted off the leather jacket and bought a new pair of CONVERSE and went to the final game of the football season Friday night. Many friends and the kids friends thought I looked pretty cool-for an old hick from the sticks.
And to think I would almost cry in junior high when mom made me wear stuff like this. I thought it was so dorky and dumb. Not sure if the times have changed that much or my fashion sense is finally in style! Go figure. Yall have a wonderful weekend.

Happy Birthday daddy.
