    Every now and again, I'm going to come here to look at that profile pic just so I can relax, I love it. Makes me take a long relaxing sigh of relief from the day if only for a moment. Lovely

    Thanks for continuing to read. I lead a very boring life. Maybe it will pick up if the snow ever goes away!

    I got a part time job and its great to get dressed and be around people again. The check does not amount to very much, but its a check. And more than my pocket is helped. My psychic is much better. I'm laughing out loud again and it feels great.

    Thanks for reading my blog. I am just trying to keep a record for myself so it probably isn't very interesting for anyone else to read. I am enjoying just getting some thoughts down every day. This is the first time that I have ever kept anything like a journal. I wonder what I will think when I go back and read it next year.

    Thank you, my friend, for making such a nice comment on my blog. I know what you mean about counseling the young. Then I remember that I didn't think my elders had any insight to MY life, either. I think it is the way of the world. I hope your world comes to you in all it's glory.

    I have never traded car with only 80,000 miles on it and I really cannot see a reason for doing so. I am concerned that once I decide definitely not to trade that I will start having major problems. On the other hand, someone else could benefit from my great car. There are no guarantees that my next car will be as good. We shall see. Thanks for reading my blog. I am new at blogging and also retirement, so it is an interesting journey even when doing nothing.

    Fortoggie - "a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land."
    Actually Jesus did not reign as a king [nor did he claim to be a king] In fact he never held any public office. There were some good and righteous Kings after Jeremiah and some were in the 400 year gap between Malachi and the N.T. - At his crucifixion Christ told Pilate he was a king, but his kingdom was not of this world.

    I haven't seen Under the Dome, but I sure hope that the white moth is not a bad omen. Time will tell. If it is a bad omen, then I hope it was a smart decision to retire. sxmgirl

To all who have studied romanticism in literature, you are sure to have come across what is called Southern Romanticism and it does take on a different flavor and history than regular romanticism. Once you become aware of itís characteristics you see it popping itís head up in every aspect of our lives. It developed its special flavor in the early eighteenth century south and can be seen in our politics, our religion and in how we see and experience the world.
Here are just some of the things...

WHILE WE SLEPT; Tens of thousands of displaced people have been making their way through the night out of the mid east and into all parts of Europe, trying to find a place of refuge , a place where they can find water, food, shelter and freedom from bombs and weapons of destruction. These are business people, lawyers, doctors and educators and people of every rank and file of society. They are old and young, rich and poor, healthy and unhealthy. Their life has been disrupted and going en masse as...

Soon students all across the country will be returning to the classroom. Many will be studying the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDANCE. Most will spend a week or so on these lines; We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal. There is only so much that you can teach a fifth grader or a tenth grader or for that matter a sophomore in college but there's a lot more in that short sentence than meets the eye. When your child is ready there's a lot of table conversation in that statement....

The world of work is quickly changing and every month, worldwide, thousands are losing their jobs and incomes to robots, to computerization and to dozens of other systems. Even in China and India where labor is still cheap, jobs are eliminated because new technology makes economical sense even if labor costs is not the major concern.
Here in the mid-south [ especially in southeast Tennessee ] we see a temporary increase in jobs, mainly because industry has been able to find cheaper labor...

TIME: We recently passed the longest day in the the year and then the halfway mark. Now we are leaning into the rest of 2015, most people have become so sensitive to time that they could close their eyes and tell you the time of day within a few minutes. We also know the day of the year and have a general sense of our place in history's great time machine. It wasnít always that way; men began to wrestle with the details of time only about 4000 years ago and slowly over centuries learned to measure...
