"Moi" {explained}.

"If one does not begin by showing one's self to be something of an independent, forward thinker - one quickly becomes something of a foregone conclusion."  N'est-ce pas? 

And you may quote me...

Beat the Heat!









Holy moly, what's wit' this sultry heat?
Gimme a Sping-like day or a cool treat!
Rather Winter's snows, n' slabs o' ice?
Move to Alaska? (Cain't afford the price!)

Go ahead, there 're Kilo-Watts to burn...
(Sweaty-sticky makes m' body squim!)

The therm-o-stat's set t' seventy-eight.
(An empty wallet can definitely relate!)

But when blizzards' bite and sleets do come,
Some of us will be feelin' kinda duh dumb.

'Cause what we'd wished for (a sure bet),
Is a thing we'll most-likely (later) regret!

Whether, you're in swimmin' or off mowin'...

Whether, gone campin' or a' fishing goin'...
'T would sure be neat!
To beat this frickin' heat!

"Rain Rain"















When always raining,
Folks end-up saying,
Go away!

No pouring rain,
Brings farm-field pain,
Come today!

Each rain-drop playing.
Every drizzle staying.
Making hay!

"Firefly"











As you trace your way, by thy tiny light.
It takes your all, to glow and mark it bright.
Soaring, blinking - gone by sunrise' sight.
Gliding, winking - to fly fire each night.

Both at the SAME time?

Be profoundly thoughtful, be also kind - for, one who VALUES nothing and no one, cannot be BOTH nor EITHER - at the same time.

At gunpoint!

A short-list of things that the government can (and will) force you to do ...at gunpoint. 
  • taxpaying
  • zoning
  • speed limits
  • vehicle inspection
  • vehicle registration
  • protest in "free speech" zones
  • building codes
  • surrender your house under eminient domain
And that's just for starters. Every single rule and regulation which has been instituted by our government is  backed-up by Local, State, Federal police and Agents. They enforce their will at the barrel-end of a gun. If you continually decline to do precisely what the Local, State, and Federal government has decreed, then you will eventually find yourself looking down the barrel of a gun.
 
Count on it.

Take care of you...

None will improve your lot - if you yourself, do not...

Succcess vs Failure?

Ever notice how SUCCESS tends to occur - in private, whereas FAILURE  - the non-event, takes place in full-view?

Politicians lie!

A Democrat, a Republican, and a giraffe go into a bar. After many drinks, the giraffe passes-out on the floor. The bartender (having seen everything before) looks-up from his newspaper and asks, "What's that lyin' on the floor?" The Republican replies, "He's with the Democrat." The Democrat replies, "He's with the Republican." The giraffe (still conscious) mumbles, "I'm not a lion, I'm a giraffe." Moral of the story? Don't ask a politician about lying, ask a Giraffe.

A good way to begin 2011 ?

Kick the DRAMA out!

In life, there comes a time, when a person must walk away from all the drama ...and the people who create it. Unfortunately, too often - the people who don't treat you right, are the ones who need you all the more - but many don't realize that fact; others won't ever admit to it. It's likely that those "who need you", are also the ones who will never "get it"... They will continue down the same path, needing each next "give-take victim" all the more (doing damage to that person all the while and all along the way). Is your own well being, life, and self worth worth the sacrifice? Bets are "on", that that the answer is, "no!" So, the point I wish to make is this: some people, for whatever reason: cannot be helped, comforted, or fixed.

Circumvent the whole issue. Don't go there - easier said than done, since men by nature, tend to be "fixers". However, whether that be by nature, due to nurture, foolishness, self loathing, or from within a victim mentality - some people who "need", are simply not able to adequately receive the help they are given. In that case, the "helper" has no choice but to move on - as that other person is a lost cause - and the damage to self (to the helper) will likely circumvent any and all help given.

Kapish? Surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad people. Focus on the good people. Love the people who treat you right. Forget about the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. I shall continue to love mine (those who treat me right)! And I am going to give everyone else the boot...

The following people are "getting the boot" (written in invisible ink - not to protect the guilty, but to protect myself from the DRAMA that would ensue):
░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░
░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░
Think about it... 

Who would you add to your own "list of the lost"?

New Year's Resolution ?

For 2011, I propose this "New Year's Resolution" to all readers: 'make relationships your first priority ... and consumption the last.' Decide: WHO? and WHAT? to VALUE. Choose: WHO? and WHAT? to HONOR. Such are alternatives. All take-form as: thought, words, or deeds. A belief in all that is Good (its doing) will help to better our selves, our loves, and our lives. Me Thinks.
