“I Must Lose Myself in Action…

…lest I wither in despair” Alfred Lord Tennyson Tennyson had a difficult and mostly unhappy life.

Miracles And Faith

     A few days ago, I mentioned two “candidate miracles” that recently occurred on this continent. One was a case of Miraculous Multiplication; the other was the incorrupt body of a deceased nun.

By now, some 9 days from my fall, I’m generally not in that much actual pain. Easily fatigued, certainly. Sore, absolutely. But mostly just REALLY uncomfortable. Enough to make it difficult to sleep for more than a couple of hours at a time. Not really able to concentrate on anything worthwhile. Playing online solitaire. Reading …

Shoulder Update

No surgery yet. I have an appointment with a shoulder specialist on Thursday. Pain level: worst at night, in the early morning hours. Bearable otherwise.

An Early Morning Thought For Mothers’ Day

     The image is richer than the thought; hence the act by which we comprehend an image, gazing, is richer, more profound, vital and storeyed than the thought. People today are, if the word may be permitted, over-conceptualistic. We have lost the art of reading images and parables, of enacting symbols. We could relearn some …

Something That Red States Should be Doing

Clamp down on the phony registrations in the Dem cities. Go in, audit their files (making sure to take clones of the drives in their computers and backups of all data), and issue a state order to drop any ‘voter’ if they don’t show up IN PERSON and provide ID (REAL ID-level, not utility bills). …

Prepping for Urban Unrest

People are talking about lethal preps – guns and ammo, mostly. I was on Mike Hendrix’s Substack – – and found this. Funniest end to a riot that I had read ever. And, it occurred to me, there may be a place in the Prepper’s Stash for rubber bullets. Something to deter those who …

History May be, in Fact, Bunk!

I was a history major. I did some research as an undergraduate, that gave me a passion for refusing to buy into the popular stories, and burrow down to find out the underlying facts. I was bored with what I was reading, and decided to find something on my Kindle library that was a little …

Other than a few sub-groups (clannish Hill Folk, gang members – at least the most vicious ones, and ex-spouses with a grudge), we tend to attribute disputes to differences in viewpoint, and are ready to shake hands when the dispute is resolved. There are even those that have forgiven …

The Loss of Information on the Internet

So much of it is now (at best) thinly-veiled propaganda, disguised press releases by partisan sources, gossip and junk. Blogs are now assuming new importance, as they serve as an alternative to the Corporate/NGO/Partisan ‘News’. Ace of Spades has a good post on just how that’s done. I spent a lot of time in the …
