Points 4, 5, and 12

Dave Barry has a list of 19 things it took him 50 years to learn. I daresay I have quite a few more that took me about 50 years to learn, but I’m certain I’m not as bright as Dave Barry. On that list, points 4,5, and 12 stick out:

4. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

5. And when God, who created the entire universe with all of its glories, decides to deliver a message to humanity, He WILL NOT use, as His messenger, a person on cable TV with a bad hairstyle.

12. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.

My intention (for this site) is to never hold anyone hostage with my thoughts.  In the interest of that, I do not list all 50.  I’m sure if anyone has what it takes to find this site in the first place, they also would be able to look that information up.


writing cold

yeah so usually I have something in mind when I start writing here.  This time I don’t.  Well, only that I want to write something witty that will make everyone love me.

It occurs to me, on a day like today, where it should be spring with all that goes with it but instead it is gray and snowy, that my one reader could use a lift.  Perhaps the grilled chicken we’re working on will do that though.

So take heart, hon.  Though you work hard and drive far for us, we try to make it worth coming home.  Spring will come, flowers will bloom, and the sun will shine.  I can think positive thoughts because the boys are cooking dinner tonight.
