Build Yourself a Strong-Box

Build for yourself a strong-box, Fashion each part with care; Fit it with hasp and padlock; Put all your troubles there. Hide therein all your failures, And each bitter cup you quaff, Lock all your heartaches within it, Then sit on the lid and laugh. ~J.V. Danner Sign in to see full entry.

When All Else Fails, I Believe in Prayer.................

It has been a month to remember, or rather, to forget. So much is crumbling around me, mostly friends' and family health. I have a candle of the Virgen de Guadalupe burning constantly on my stove top because I am at a loss and full of fear for others and wish them well. Seriously bad health issues...

I don't like Microsoft much, but I'm falling in love with Bill Gates.

Ever since his daddy talked him into philanthropic activities, he has gone up in my estimation. Today on C-SPAN, I watched a program, a gathering of governors and Bill Gates spoke. He wants to revamp, revolutionize and shake up American Educational Institutions. He laid out his outline of a plan for... Sign in to see full entry.

Spiritual photography, go see it, search it out....."Unseenamerica"

This photo show is travelling the country, the photos having been taken by blue collar workers in each community. The underlying theme of the show turns out to be 'relationships'. When each photographer explains the 'why' they took that particular shot, the explanation always includes something... Sign in to see full entry.

Through many dangers, toils and snares, I have already come. 'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far And grace will lead me home. Sing along with me, now.......no, seriously. I know, surely, that it was nothing that I did. Sign in to see full entry.

A More Covert, New Age Racism, seen as whining just now, piffle......

My girlfriend, the one who was preparing for her Dr. Martin Luther King Show at her high school, the dance teacher, called me this evening to tell me about her last few days of preparation, rehearsals and finally the Show itself. This is unbelievable to me, but it happened. When she and the other... Sign in to see full entry.

The beginnings of a Speech that I wrote for a Friend to use on MLK Day

"When I began to prepare this season’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Show, a child in one of my classes asked me why we celebrated the life of this one black man. "Why", she asked, "did he deserve a holiday to honor him?" She and her family found nothing remarkable in his life worth celebrating, nothing... Sign in to see full entry.

I am Old and Christianity is now packaged 'Lite'

I was raised in an Episcopal or Anglican church that soon moved eastward, just five grains of frankincense this side of Greek Orthodoxy, later in my youth. We became ‘high’ Episcopal and only God and our padre knew just what that meant on this planet and in this desert town. We wore hats and head... Sign in to see full entry.

Disappearing blogs.....this one too must go.

In a week, this one will also go the way of old, unposted blogs. I think that I will repost some of my better entries later in my new, one and only blog, but dunno just yet. Read me now and forever lose my ancient words of wisdom and silliness. They will not be here next Saturday. I am shutting them... Sign in to see full entry.

Cali's burned homes should be rebuilt of rammed earth and adobe, brick mayb

I watched California's houses burning on the news. My granddaughter thinks that al Qaeda operatives are driving along hilly roads and tossing out lit cigarettes as they go along. She says that this is as bad as the Towers falling. They are driving all over the southwestern United States and burning... Sign in to see full entry.
