The Desire To Have Sex
Have you ever felt you wanted to be immortal? Ever thought, what would it be like to live forever?
God says we can’t. The bible essentially tells us we wouldn’t be able to handle it if we could live Continue reading “The Garden of Life, Pt. 2”

A ball of dirt
Spins in the air
I held two diamonds
A perfect pair
One of them dropped
Into the sand
The sand turned to glass
The glass turned to air
I lost my sense
Of distance and time
Blinded I’d wait
And let time unwind
Because when you find
The wind at your back
The sun in your face
And a friend by your side
Feet to the sand
Eyes to the sky
You’re living right
It’s not all a big lie
Spin one more time
I know it’s still there
Or nothing is real
Be patient my dear

Dear Mister Blog Person,
It’s come to my attention there’s been a notable lack of activity on this blog the past few weeks.
Although we’ve had our differences in the past, I, for one, would like to congratulate you on showing respect and restraint to us manatees by not recently directing harsh accusations and unfairnesses toward us, as you have Continue reading “Not Too Big of a Manatee”
News reporting is like customer service; sometimes good things happen, but no-one says anything. There’s good reasons why.
Even more likely; bad things are avoided or solved, and with the solution the impact and newsiness of the story fades away, either no longer interesting, a story that never developed, or a dog with a missing tail.
The dog’s tail disappears easily in the world of customer service. When I was a customer service manager Continue reading “News Interruption!”

<Warning: The following story is biased. You’ll see.>
Why is Katie Couric hosting the Olympics? This is a sports event, not a political one. She shouldn’t be there; not to represent the United States. Not this year.
Tonight began Winter Olympics 2018 from South Korea, and a lot of great things happened, even some you could certainly call political, I suppose. But can’t people just get together? Even if the Koreas combine into one for the events, a single Korea, a motion, an expression, of interest to all earthlings … this is still a sporting event. Continue reading “Katie Go Home! (or, Welcome To South Korea for the Winter Olympics!)”
Amid controversy over habitat, community standing, and even ethical posture, Florida’s manatees are suing billionare Elon Musk, and say they feel slighted by Musk’s latest adventures in space. A spokesman for a popular herd told the Associated Press in a prepared statement he was “shocked and offended” that people “care more about a little red sports car than manatees.”
The spokesman, who goes by just “Fred,” appealed to Musk, saying “if you can put a car in a rocket, you can put a manatee in one.” The lawsuit is based on Fred’s claim Continue reading “MANATEES SUE MUSK”
I let my cat outdoors sometimes.
There I said it!
It’s an impressively-controversial thing to do! In the winter, she doesn’t like the snow and “tries” to use the litter box, but she much prefers spending time outside. She has access to the roof, where she contemplates the lyrics to Grateful Dead songs, and she has times of day and areas of the yard, I keep an eye on her, and she comes when I call her.
Last Fall, I had a hunch she was having a great time, so I followed her around with my camera. Watch! She makes friends with a chipmunk I knew we had but could never get more than a glimpse of …maybe the same chipmunk that used to taunt Ziggy my Pit Bull by climbing inside a six-foot PVC pipe – he would go nuts trying to get the little thing!
