Stand By Me

The video says it all.

Facebook Etiquette

I have a facebook page but I must admit I don’t use it much. I really don’t know how all that stuff works. If you don’t either may this video can help you understand the intricies of Facebook. It didn’t help me.

The Wagon

the old red wagon

Cold fall leaves, so carelessly tossed,
lay brown and withered by morning’s frost.
Discarded scraps of natures poetry
so carelessly tossed. Cold fall leaves
in winters wind, ending natures grace.
The wagon waits for hibernal face
to lay siege upon this land again,
ending natures grace in winters wind.
And every truth I’ve known, all that I believe
is in the red wagon, covered now with leaves.
Where once behind tiny legs there used to roam
all that I believe and every truth I’ve known.
For I am but a man, so little do I know
of wagons and winter and children when they’re grown.
To my sorrow I may never understand.
So little do I know, for I am but a man.

Love your enemies – Matthew 5:43-45

“Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.”
(Matthew 5:43-45, KJV)

Most Americans remember the events of September 11th, 2001 as a time of sadness and mourning. But there was also anger, fear and even hate. Powerful emotions which were directed at the enemy, an enemy most of didn’t even know.

So our President, George W. Bush, mobilized the strongest military in the world, invaded Afghanistan and defeated the Taliban. Since then Four thousand eight hundred and sixty five American soldiers have died while Afghanistan and Iraqi casualties vary from one hundred fifty thousand to nearly a million depending upon your source.

A lot of people have died because our President, our government and many of our citizens either failed to read or chose to ignore Matthew 5:43-45.

AAADD – Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder

This is how my life works.
First I decide to water my garden. As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car and decide it needs washing. As I start toward the garage, I notice mail on the front verandah table that I brought up from the letter box earlier, just after the mailman had been there.

I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. I put my car keys on the table, put the junk mail in the garbage bin beside the table, and notice that the bin is full. So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the garbage first.

But then I think, since I’m going to be near the post box when I take out the garbage anyway (and the mailman picks up the mail at noon), I may as well pay the bills first. So, I take my check book off the table, and see that there is only 1 check left. My spare check book is in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to
my desk where I find the can of Coke I’d been drinking earlier this morning.

Thought for the day

If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples then you and I will still each have one apple.

But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas. - George Bernard Shaw
