No Room For Love?

Hate leads to suffering. −Yoda A couple of weeks ago I was bored at home, as I often am when I don’t have my children with me, and turned to YouTube for some mild entertainment while I ate dinner. For reasons unbeknownst to me, the following video showed up in my recommended viewing list. Why … Continue reading

Never Say Always

Twice in my life I have stood in front of family and friends and made very public promises that I would love and cherish another person for the rest of my life. Twice in my life I have had another person stand in front of their family and friends and promise to be there with … Continue reading

They Don’t Like Me

I know I haven’t been on here very much lately, but I have a good excuse: I think the machines are out to get me. For the past few weeks, it seems like everything that has wiring in it has either worked against me, or broken down. In the case of the radios I deal … Continue reading

A&E, Phil Robertson, and Unpopular Opinions

Duck Dynasty. We’ve all heard of it. Sadly. It is A&E’s popular show about a wealthy family who owns a company called Duck Commander, which is famous for its duck calls. I have seen only a few minutes of the show when I was forced by my boss to watch it as he laughed about something … Continue reading

Judge Not Lest Ye Be Judged

The bill was quarterbacked (sorry, it’s football season) … Continue reading

Twindaddy: Pottymouth

Last week I read an extremely provocative piece on the Daily Post regarding swearing, or not, on your blog. I know swearing is something that many people feel very passionately about. Some people can’t abide swearing. They feel it’s disrespectful and gauche. Others swear as a way to combat censorship. Swear words, to them, are just … Continue reading

Rant: Littering

During my commute to work this morning, I passed through a mowing zone. Workers were out and about this crisp autumn morn, bundled up in warm apparel and wearing their mandatory blaze-orange vests so they wouldn’t be hit by some unsuspecting motorist. The scene I passed through befuddled me. We had our first frost last … Continue reading
