A New Year Begins

THE YEAR'S AT THE SPRING

    The year's at the spring
    And the day's at the morn;
    Morning's seven;
    The hillside's dew-pearled;
    The lark's on the wing;
    The snail's on the thorn:
    God's in his heaven-
    All's right with the world!

Computer Age

Can we blame the moral decline on this technology?
Technology increased and morality decreased.

The Longest Night

          Winter Nights                                   

Now the winter nights enlarge
  The number of their hours,
And clouds their storms discharge
  Upon the airy towers.
Let now the chimneys blaze,
  And cups o'erflow with wine,
Let well-tuned words amaze
  With harmony divine.
Now yellow waxen lights
  Shall wait on honey Love,
        While youthful revels, masks, and courtly sights
  Sleep's leaden spells remove.
This time doth well dispense
  With lovers' long discourse.
Much speech hath some defence
  Though beauty no remorse.
All do not all things well:

  Some measures comely tread,
Some knotted riddles tell,
  Some poems smoothly read.
The Summer hath his joys,
  And Winter his delights. 
        Though Love and all his pleasures are but toys, 
  They shorten tedious nights.

Thomas Campion
     1567-1620

Sunday Prayer

God's Strength and Protection

O God, who knowest us to be set
in the midst of so many and great dangers,
that by reason of the frailty of our nature
we cannot always stand upright:
grant to us such strength and protection,
as may support us in all dangers,
and carry us through all temptations;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Good or Bad Muslims in USA?

What's the test?
Hopefully all Muslims do not want to murder us.
"Politically Correct", America's greatest weakness.

Play without helmets,  there would be no more headbutting.
There would be no more injuries, and sanity is back in the game.

California High Speed Train Stalled?

If everyone knew the truth about this Choo-Choo train, it wouldn’t even got a start on the onset. Nationally, people are wising up and hooking up with a leader that will not accept paybacks to get into the White House. We need a leader like that for California. Little by little we get stuff piled on us; and our voices are muffled to this point and it is too late. It is like the familiar story; “the frog in the comforting simmering warm water pan till it gets too hot and it cannot jump out.” We are there today. God help us.

Go to <Californiapoliticalrevue.com> for more information regarding the Governor's "train".

The President Is in Southeast Asia

Spewing forth untruths and denigrating our great US of A.

I am ashamed to admit that he is ours.

14 more long months for sanity and safety to begin in Washington.

Muslim Carnage. U.S. Muslim in Support?

Have not seen or heard any outrage from any Muslim groups, such as CAIR,!

Silence from the Muslims residing in the U.S.  means they are in support.



Worrisome thoughts.

Global Warming Worry Solved

All 8 billion or so, get in the lotus position every morning, facing the rising sun and hold your breath for as long as possible; continue this daily till the house plant begins to whither.

Just a thought

Democrat Debate Show

Not much to make a point about. Mostly a repetition of earlier lies.

Did notice the cheering after almost every point opined; seems like an orchestrated cheering, whistling and screaming for the hour or so that I listened. Did not do the TV show.

Nothing to write home about, as we used to say.

Columbus Day. A holiday for Post Office, not for school.

It is my opinion that the kids have to be taught what a wretched creature he was to the Indians.

Just a thought.

33% of Americans Not Working.

This is a depression. In the 1930"s it was 25%.
More than likely your neighbor is unemployed.

No solution from Washington, only no shut down
and that's the good news.
