Sometimes I Wonder

Why? Why not? Okay, here’s the deal. I’m going to rant to fill some sort of arbitrary word count in order to make my point which is simply this; If you’re going to publish a blog, why aren’t you allowing for commentary?

Is your opinion sacrosanct, and not up for debate? Clearly not, as there’s always an opposing position to take.

Maybe you’re afraid of what others might think. Maybe you don’t want your opinion to be drowned out by the noise du jour. However, if you’re effectively keeping your opinions to yourself, why should I bother to read it?

I allow for commentary on all my blogs, including this one. The fact that I don’t get many simply means I don’t have a lot of readers. Is this my choice? No, of course not. I’d prefer the ten thousand fans I’m supposed to have, allowing for about 100 comments based on I believe the Pareto Principle. See also, the 90/9/1 rule. I could also use these mythical ten thousand fans to support me at a dollar a month for the rest of my life.

Yes, I’ve done the math, that’s $120K a year, until I die. However, the business that hasn’t been created yet, is: What to do with your sites after you die? Someone, and it may be you reading this, can start this business, and make some money off of it. And then, I’d like a large donation, and credit on your site. Point to my ministry site when you do. Thanks!

There’s going to be an influx of those that will have written a virtual metric ton of stuff online that are going to eventually die. They may leave the care and feeding of these sites to friends, relatives, etc. A thousand years from now, one of my descendants may reference this particular article.

Hey, it could happen. Note to self, add this to the same list that contains, “When pigs fly.”

So, to review: People post opinions, and don’t allow comments. I don’t have to read these sites anymore.

Have I made my point yet? More importantly, have I made my word count?

Who coined the phrase “Pigs Get Fat. Hogs get Slaughtered.”​?

I believe the phrase predates his cite, but I do agree with everything else here. Merry Christmas everyone!!!

I know, it’s Boxing Day. The day wherein you put all your boxes inside each other, and then cart them out to the recycle bin. The more industrious among you might actually break them down so they become flat, to allow for more space in said recycle bin.

We have a dumpster that is white here in the 30 unit apartment building that is disguising a movie studio. It’s overflowing with yesterday’s detritus.

Yes, I’m riffing right now, so, go forth, and sin no more, or you can go fifth 😉

R&S Delivered

This is an impromptu post. I didn’t intend to write it when I got up this morning. I’m writing it after an interaction I had with a customer this morning. That customer had an easy refrigerated load picking up in MN and going to WI. Load picks up on January 2nd, a long time from now, and delivers the next day. It’s less than 300 miles. One of that customers “valued carrier partners” quoted $1,950.00 to haul that load. The market rate on the load was about $850.00. I quoted $850.00 and was awarded the load. The customer emailed me asking if my rate was correct. I said yes. I also said, “And can I say something? Whoever your carrier “partner” is that put $1950 on that lane should be eliminated from your list of “partners”. That’s a rate that only a pig would suggest. Seriously.” Now at the risk of offending someone…

All the good titles were taken

For a completely separate project, I did a search on, “All the good titles are taken,” and came up with this….

Impressively, she expresses much of the same sentiments that may go into a potential movie idea that probably will never get written, now that I’ve read this.

Go figure.

A Muse Amused

Do you ever have those moments when so much rage—that pure, unfiltered, unadulterated, organic, non-GMO and paraben-free, ID-required-for-purchase brand of madness—screams through your veins so piercingly that you can’t speak?

As if your body must dedicate all of its functions to refrain from implosion and/or explosion: there’s no way to know which way you’ll erupt.

Once upon a time, you shimmered. Lately, you simmer more than glimmer.

And yeah, maybe rhyming proves my writing has become dimmer.

This comes as no surprise. In Los Angeles, too many years passed undocumented due to blank page anxiety and complacency. I felt more excited about the prospect of what could be instead of what I could actually create. The unknown, the unwritten is infinitely more exciting than whatever potential disappointment I risk by actually filling blank lines with some sort of something.

This self-defeating process seems a bit like LA dating. We hoist…

Dear US Government and BLM please FUCK OFF!

More ridiculousness ensues. This original post is from 2014. Understand this before you blame the current administration for ANYTHING that is going on that affects real people.

I’ve got work to do, so I’ll be doing that now. I may not see a response for up to five days….

aghostdancer

First let me state both TJ and I firmly believe man is affecting the climate and the earth. Michelle believes man pollutes the earth but doesn’t affect the climate. We all three agree we need to do more to protect this rock we call home. That now said here is the story.

Which actually has nothing to do with my stand on Global Climate change as much as my stand against our government gone haywire. A stand for native American nations and their right to self rule as outlined in contracts and peace treaties. it seems we want to break our word as a nation yet again with the Native peoples of this land.

Yesterday I saw a news story that demonstrates the kind of corruption that global warming propaganda can produce. CNS News reported, Here is that report.

Storm.

Always good to come back to this site every once in awhile, and get inspired.

PhoebeMD: Health + Inspiration

 

A yearning
as sirens of
autumn’s breath
whisper words
of anticipation.
A rhythmic contralto
an echo to the soul
a welcomed unrest
as the valley chants 
its familiar tune.

Mesmerized
is she as gleams
of heaven incensed
unveil a sight divine.
A prelude
as skies yield to
nature’s command–
a foretaste of the
promised cleansing
of her deliverance.

When the urge strikes

This is yet another great story from an incredible couple of women that I know.

aghostdancer

When the urge strikes you,

The year 2001, the place high school, 6th period, AP history class, Junior year. The subject the holocaust.

While watching a non-closed caption holocaust video I knew Michelle was bored out of her mind. Being deaf she needed closed caption considering most of the film was narrated. But this film had no closed caption or subtitles. So we were signing in the darkened class and goofing off.

All the while smirking and looking around, trying not to be so bored. You’ve probably sat through a class like that or two? We were trying to be quiet. Honest we were. And we succeeded for a while.

As class wore on one of the senior boys was passing by the door. Of course I had to tell Michelle who was watching him with great interest. We knew him, a jock and one of the “cool” kids…

Messages From The Angels – You Are Never Alone

Blooming In Love

www.pinterest.com

This is an inspired writing. I am writing this message to all who are reading from the angels. The card reading was done after the inspired writing and I find it to be fitting as to what I was inspired to write this morning and also in keeping with the theme of yesterday’s inspired writing.

You are never alone.

We see you and are with you every moment.

Why do you struggle so?

Why do you dwell in sadness?

Burden yourself with worry?

Live with guilt or regret?

We are here to help you.

God longs to hear the prayers of your heart and see you live in freedom.

You deserve peace.

You deserve happiness.

You deserve love.

You deserve prosperity.

Don’t forget that you are never alone.

We are here to help you.

Batman And Wonder Woman Get Married?

I think Catwoman might have something to say about this….

TIM HANLEY

Here’s a little Valentine’s fun for all of us: The Source has released a preview of The All-New Batman: The Brave and the Bold #4, which features the caped crusader proposing marriage to our favourite Amazon.  Here is his proposal:

Just before this, both Batman and Wonder Woman got blasted by some sort of pink love ray, so I suspect some Star Sapphire/Zamaron involvement here.  But yeah, it sounds like a cute issue… and I like that they went with an old school version of Wonder Woman.  She looks very Silver Age.  Look for the issue in stores now.
