Syrian Refugees, Yes or No? That’s a tough one.


I see that a battle is brewing over whether we Americans should take in Syrian refugees.

That’s a tough on for anyone to answer.

I have no control over the final decision. I understand that. I’m just another abused and ignored citizen.

You see it’s a Federal decision, and it seems the idiots we have elected to Federal office could care less about what a single citizen has to say on this or pretty much any subject.

We elect them to represent US, the people. And, they immediately throw us the Bird, as they go and do what they damned-well please.

But, thats another subject.

Muslims of the World! Heal Thyself! While you can!


OK, don’t read this if you are looking for some kind of theological fist-fight.

I’m just another person living his life the best he can, on this planet of ours.

I am no expert on the Muslim religion or its sects, nor do I want to be.

Why do so many people want to meet in Pubs?

Someone once asked a friend of mine;

Why do you like to meet your friends in a Pub?

Smiling broadly, he turned to his friend and said;

Because no good story ever started over a glass of Water!

Being Stupid is not an easy lifestyle, but so many people live that way.


That’s right. This article is about all of the stupid people in the world.

Someone has to warn the “not-so-stupid” population about all of the ones around us who literally have no clue about the realities of life and those once popular and important practices known as;


Let me warn you,ahead of time, this is a Rant.

So, I can say whatever I want on the subject mentioned.


Enjoy my rant, or just turn the page if you are offended, in some way.

Chicken Poop is still just Chicken Poop! No matter how you dress it up!


I remember, decades ago, when they carted this old guy out on national news for his unique hobby.

He was obviously a simple farmer who was very uncomfortable with all of the attention he was getting.

What this man had done was simple and elegant.

He had a problem; He had worn his body out working on his farm his whole life and now he needed more money so he and his wife could have a better lifestyle.

He looked around, and all he had as resources was his farm itself and whatever was on this piece of land.

And for my next Trick …….. just Bring it ON!


Morning Sun,

shining in my right eye.

Tears running down my cheek as I try

to start my PC, half-blind.

I need my Coffee, so I take a sip.

I miss my mouth!

So Hot Coffee’s running down my favorite T-shirt.

Jumping up, I drop my PC onto the rug.

All of this happens in a flash of time.

I’m no Dummy!

I decide to just stand here,

stained shirt, burning skin, tears in my eyes,

and wait on life’s comedian, Fate!

Surely, there’s something else the evil bastard can throw at me,

before I get on with my day?

Bring it ON!

Morning, Coffee and a Fleeting Thought – #1- Habits

I was just THINKIN' #2 Dr. OZ says these are the very Best and very worst foods to eat.


OK, I am a person of habits. And, honestly, we all have one or more habits that we learned the hard way.

I have lived long enough to have already made a lot (hopefully ALL) of my major “Common Life Mistakes”.

There are simple ones like;

I’ll not be putting my hand in a fire (It IS going to hurt, fool!),

I will not walk down a dark street, in a strange neighborhood, late at night (this one is a movie thing, I guess I have watched too many of them that have flagged this as being inherently dangerous.).

I now have an important Skill everyone should Learn in today’s world.


Well, I’ve finally done it.

It took a long time to perfect it.

And, I had to suffer through a lot of “noise” as I trained myself in this new skill.

You see, I can now turn my TV ON in the morning and place it on one of the, what they call, News Channels. It really doesn’t matter which one,.

They all call themselves “fair and honest” reporters of the facts, when in fact I and everyone I know, who owns a TV, is aware that some are Right Wing and others are Left Wing, and a few just flat out twist the truth until it is unrecognizable for their own personal popularity polls.

Anyway, I recently realized that regardless of the channel, or the reporter, there is only so much “real News” to report on, in the world.

I drove near Disney World and it was Traffic Hell!


It was an accident, or rather it was a mental slip on my part.

My wife and I were camping in a nice campground near Disney World. This had nothing to do with our wanting to go to that giant entertainment complex that eats up so much of Orlando.

In fact, we are old enough to have taken our children there many years ago, and we are old enough to have taken a number of our grand-children there, more recently.

So, I know what the place is like, and honestly, I recommend it for any family that has never been there.

But, we are RV people who just happened to be camping near there.

Well, my wife and I were planning a night out ad a good restaurant and she found a review of this place that sounded interesting. It was actually a restaurant attached to the Disney World complex.

I’m just an Old Rolling Stone!

Campsite in Orlando
i’m sitting here near Orlando.

Outside my motorhome.

The time is late, TV sucks,

So I think I’ll pour another Chardonnay.

Disney’s fireworks are quiet now,

My fellow campers have gone inside.

Even the damned bugs are too lazy to bite,

I Wanna Run Away!


That’s Right!

I’m sitting here in Florida and really that’s where everyone wants to be. Right?

But me? I’m a man with the Wanderlust!

I need to see new places and meet new people.

I need to wake up at night and wonder what that strange sound was.

I need to see a sunset over a different horizon.

I need to look out the window and ask myself; Who the Hell are those people?

Hey SnowBirds! We Really Don’t Care!

SnowBird – pic by molley via Flikr

Snowbirds are a phenomenon that many people don’t really understand until they move here and become a resident, themselves.

There are so many people who live further North, even as far north as Canada, and eventually save enough money to spend most of their cold winters in Florida that they have this unique name, SNOWBIRD.

Well, Florida is a tourist state and much if its income is derived from what these winder transients spend while hiding form their cold winters, so its the rare public or political comment about how these people act towards the locals.

States to Retire and their advantages/disadvantages, JOKE


I was cleaning up some old emails and I found this joke from a friend. It seems so TRUE that made me laugh.

You can retire to Phoenix, Arizona where…
1. You are willing to park 3 blocks away because you found shade.
2. You’ve experienced condensation on your ass from the hot water in the toilet bowl.
3. You can drive for 4 hours in one direction and never leave town.
4. You have over 100 recipes for Mexican food.
5. You know that “dry heat” is comparable to what hits you in the face when you open your oven door.
6. The 4 seasons are tolerable, hot, really hot, and ARE YOU KIDDING ME??!!


You can retire to California where…

1. You make over $250,000 and you still can’t afford to buy a house.
2. The fastest part of your commute is going down your driveway.
3. You know how to eat an artichoke.
4. You drive your rented Mercedes to your neighborhood block party.
5. When someone asks you how far something is, you tell them how long it will take to get there rather than how many miles away it is.
6. The 4 seasons are Fire, Flood, Mud, and Drought.
