Two for oneDoug Giles had two good sermons in a row and I may not totally agree except to say that we as a country are in a crisis with our justice system. Too many institutions like Planned Parenthood and the ACLU have given criminals more rights than the victims. It is past time for the pendulum to swing back toward a balanced center. If not pick up a rock and let the stonings begin.
TimeSorry folks, I am still kind of dysfunctional. Turning fifty and realizing that automatically makes me a member of AARP (not to mention that they are run by Dumbocrats and traitors by nature) is sobering to say the least. I still remember the days when I was the 'kid' on the block. The fact is that my medical problems have only gotten worse and it is painful to do simple physical activities any more. I find it difficult to be much of a mentor to the younger people that I have trained in the past. They have grown up and are moving on as it should be but I am stuck with filling out paperwork as I am forced to apply for a disability retirement before the inevitable slide into end of life issues. I have worked hard enough that I can at least enjoy some fruit of my labors and still be there for my family for now. Life is what you make of it and when time runs out I hope that each of you can face it with courage as you are thankful for what you have been so freely blessed with. Therin lies my dilemma and difficulty in posting something as painful yet real as it gets. My cardiac doc was having a frank discussion with me the other day and told me that guys like me have a tendency to suddenly drop dead. So if you quit hearing from me that is the most likely event. I know some trolls will be made happy by this news but that is OK because I know that I will be in a much better place and having the first laughs of the rest of my marvelous new life.

Posting on my own blogI am having my first case of writers block on my blog. I have been out and about making plenty of comments on my friends blogs and neglecting my own. I know that there is no lack of things to write about but also feel that better writers than I are covering most of them quite well as I enjoy reading. I have ideas that are only vaguely formed bubbling around and when life slows down a bit I am sure I will have plenty of well measured things to say. Time to get a bit of sleep because I have things to do. Goodnight/Morning and may God Bless each of you.

Sunday SermonDoug Giles says it just the way I like in this sermon. While I admired John Paul II there is still some much needed reform in the Catholic Church that would bless them and Christianity much more. Some of the most messed up people I know are liberal and non practicing Catholics but some of the best Christians I know are also Catholics. (another seeming paradox)
