Gilbert, Young And Typing Class

29 Aug

I flunked typing. Many of you are too young to remember those old clackity clack typewriters. Or perhaps you weren’t even born yet. I bet many of you grew up with personal computers and you can’t even imagine a world without them. Well, yeah, there used to be a thing called a TYPEWRITER. Goodwill tosses out these prehistoric monsters, so don’t bother donating the one in your mom’s attic. Continue reading

Lesbians And Lawn Mowers, A Lethal Combination

29 Aug

This is gonna sound unbelievable, but no matter where I have lived, I always had lesbians living on the same road. This is in the country, not some big city. Once I even had 2 sets of them. One directly across the street and the other pair 5 houses down. I have had several apartments over the years and 2 years ago I bought a 126 year old house.¬† Yep, there’s a middle aged lesbian couple in a farmhouse almost as old as mine. Continue reading

Annihilate Those (**bleep!) Trojans!

28 Aug

I’m really getting sick and tired of all this hacking, phishing, scams, spams, Adware, Spyware and Trojans that keep eating up my computer. Not to mention all that money I spend to clean it all up when it sloows way down and then crashes right in the middle of a game I’m playing. The other players complain I’m too slow and sometimes I get an error message saying my computer is not fast enough for the game and I get kicked out. Always when I winning too. Continue reading

Mitt And Hillary, What A Nightmare!

28 Aug

I dreamed last night that Mitt Romney became president of the United States. He made us all don holy, sacred underwear. It’s supposed to keep you safe even in the most tragic car crashes where you go through the windshield and smack your skull against an oak tree. I don’t like to make fun of anyone’s religion, but that’s putting your faith and trust in a piece fabric and not in God. Continue reading

I’m As Liberal As Hillary Clinton

27 Aug

I recently found out that I’m as liberal as Hillary Clinton. I took a survey that was in a section of the Sunday newspaper. The results showed that I am very liberal! That surprises me since I’m against abortion and gay marriage. But I am also against helping the rich, i.e. tax breaks and incentives. I have a soft spot and worry about the poor in America. But welfare doesn’t work.That’s already been proven over and over. It’s vicious cycle and seems to run in some families. For them it’s time for self-help. There’s even programs to help you do that which are for short term, not lifelong dependency. Continue reading

What The (*Bleep) Is Nouthetic Counseling?

27 Aug

In a previous post I wrote about a therapy session my wife had with a guy who also happens to be a Christian, but isn’t allowed to do any Christian counseling because he works for a state agency. My wife was looking for spiritual guidance and does not want to leave God out of her healing. A reader shared with me a method of Christian counseling called: nouthetic. I had never heard the term before and did a little research. Although I myself had received christian counseling years ago, it wasn’t nouthetic in nature. The reader mentioned that the focus is on sin and confrontation. Initially I had a negative reaction when I read that. After all, we all feel guilty enough, don’t we? Continue reading

The Brutal Reality Of Online Spades

26 Aug

Have you ever played the card game Spades online? The one from¬† games.com? I’ve been playing it for years. When I first discovered it I was a complete novice. I never read any instructions. Don’t have the time or patience for that. Just learned while I played. It was awful. Continue reading
