So I’ve been sitting here in Denny’s for an hour *after* finishing my burger. Surfing the news, FB, IMDB and Reddit. And in the back of my tired mind I’ve been stewing over several bits of unrelated bullshit, upon which I will now expound. Mind you, I’m not proclaiming anything. I’m merely opinionating. Why I expect anyone would care is a mystery even to me. Continue reading
I guess everyone has their favorite customer service nightmare story. I’ve had a few over the years. Had a few good ones as well. I made a few changes in my cellular plan last year with AT&T that went smoothly. And I recently started home Internet service with T-Mobile and have been very well pleased with the interactions I’ve had with them. And GEICO is always a pleasure to deal with. Crisp and efficient.
Oh, joy. I’m in Facebook Jail yet again. And as before it’s for the most ridiculous of reasons. Once again the meddlesome juvenile delinquents FB employs as moderators have taken offense at something that could not possibly be offensive. Please allow me to set the stage here: I have a good friend in Central Texas. We’ll just call her “Ann.” I’ve known her and her brother since the early 70s.

I hadn’t planned to blog today. I’ve posted a lot of stuff here lately and apparently it wasn’t very good. But then a few of my friends posted some really bizarre stuff online and I felt the need to answer. More of the “we’re screwed without God” stuff. They apparently believe that “GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL” and all will be well if we just have faith. Continue reading
So we’re in the Last Days. How long are they supposed to last? I’m 64 years old and Christians have been blabbing about it for as long as I can remember. When I was still a child and had no choice but to attend church, old Brother McDaniel once said that Jesus’ return was so near he’d like to just keep preaching until it happened. That was over 50 years ago. Continue reading
Sometimes I love Hollywood. Other times I want to burn the whole thing to the ground. It is perhaps the largest single collection of arrogant, spoiled adults on the planet. But sometimes they come through with flying colors. Sometimes a movie or character comes along that just lights up the world. And I’m not so narrow minded that I can’t appreciate it when they do so.
