This is a catch all area for thoughts and things.
This is merely a collection of my thoughts on various topics, as I think of them, or find them in my other writings. All are original, and I state freely that they are generally highly opinionated.

Wrote two Memorial Day blogs today. Here are their links:



Not sure if it was too much.

My regular blog on Hamptonroads.com, "Sparkling Diversity," has been vicious and jealous about this blog. It fights to crowd out the memory of Writing.com's blog, forcing me to forget this blog for inordinate periods of time.

What to do?

Looks like shame on me, no blog entries for over 1,000 days. But, if you glance beneath the red writing hood, you will see I was blogging. Just not here. Need to improve that, eh?

More places to write; more things to write; more fun writing. Write. Right?

Fall fell quickly here in Norfolk, VA. Once day we are having record high temperatures, and the next day temperatures are more than 20 degrees colder.

Global un-warming?

I know it seems that my writing is falling off, but, really, it is not. I have been writing a blog for our local paper's web site and that has kept me busy with 400 to 1200 words per entry. This started in mid-May and continues to be both fun and challenging.

I have just renewed my Writing.com membership and hope to be adding morewriting in the not to far away future.

Attended a city meeting yesterday, and the topic was crime prevention. The mayor and most city council members were there.

The keynote speaker was most interesting and inspiring, although I do wish they had chosen one that spoke more directly to the topic at hand, crime prevention.

We broke into groups of 15 or so; there were 26 groups in all. During the 90 minutes or so in my group, we had a lively discussion, moderated by a city employee. This was the most interesting and, in my opinion, useful part of the morning. I do hope the comments we made make it back to City Council members and other city officials.

We'll see.

When the funds come from public money. I am incensed that my President and my Congress have conspired to give taxpayer money to hurricane victims. Does that make me an ogre? I think not.

Our Constitution is being ripped apart by Republican and Democrat alike. Charity is and should be an individual thing. It is a church thing. It is a corporate thing. Individuals, churches and corporations should, and do, give to just and needy causes. Our government should not. It is fiscally irresponsible for them to do so.

There are tragedies in our country every day. Why choose the group of tragedies in one particular area and not pay to have a person's house rebuilt after a fire? Is there not insurance? Is it my responsibility as a taxpayer to pay for the rebuilding of a home the owner had under-insured? I think not. If we are to remain a strong nation, and we are rapidly weakening as a people, we have to get back to standing up for ourselves, taking personal responsibility and ensuring our government does only what it is supposed to do, according to that document drawn up so long ago, the Constitution. It is, after all, the law of the land. Our
Congress and our President have been flagrantly breaking that law all to long now.
