It's official! She's a Bitch now!

     I must guard her a bit.  I think I wouldn't mind finding a suitable mate for her to enjoy.  I think she's enjoy being a mommy!  BTW:  She's pure Shetland Sheep Dog, affectionally called a "Sheltie."

     Also, she was barking at a hawk soaring overhead.  Good girl!

Bowling Anyone? I could get back into it so easily!

     Clarkesville, Georgia did not have a bowling alley during the last time I lived in Habersham County.  As I discovered recently, now they do!  I decided I would check it out, and I'm glad that I did.

     I used to own my own bowling ball, but I got rid of it a few years ago.  It's okay, because it was a 15 pound ball, and I've gotten to where I can't control a ball of that size anymore.  On the night that I checked out the Clarkesville Lanes, I used a 13 and a 14 pound ball.  

     Overall, a pleasant experience!

You tell the story and write the dialogue!

Maybe I should judge my own speech before I sound it off!

     Freedom of speech is a most precious freedom.  Judgments can come back at you for what you say.  A doctor who lies to his / her patients can be sued.  Pastors / Counselors are liable for the advice that they give.  Teachers are held accountable.  Turn on a fire alarm when there is no fire is a felony offense.  Making bomb threats whether or not there is a bomb is criminal behavior.  Judge your speech well before you actually sound it off.  People are listening.  People will call you on your errors.  Judge well, and prepare to be judged well.

I hope to make lap 56 (around the sun) productive! Wish me luck!


Thank you, Sarah! BTW: Do you sell those smokescreens?

     Sarah Palin, I applaud your promotion of freedom of speech.  I, too, believe it is a most precious freedom that we'd be wise to protect.  That means I'm eager to have errors called out and even satirized for the sake of truth.  From what I can tell, that "Duck" man spoke from one perspective -- that of one straight man who can't understand gay men.  No one has demanded, or even asked, that he (or anyone else) understand gay men.  I'm not the only one who can assure you that many gay men can't understand straight men.  All anyone needs to understand is that gay men and straight men exist NATURALLY on this planet and war between the two is entirely unnecessary.  Straight people (I would claim) started this unnecessary war, therefore straight people should put a stop to it.  That "Duck" man should have his right to expose his own ignorance protected.  Others should have their right to call him on it, expose the errors, and even satirize the stupidity in his commentary protected also.  Thanks, Sarah, for helping to keep this conversation (or rather SHOUTING match) moving on (hopefully forward).  

  Oh, and one more thing.  Thanks for the smoke screen! 

God's Word does not need any "defending," Pat Robertson!

     I say that Pat Robertson has NOT been defending God's Word, for God's Word is Truth (not an approximation of it, nor a particular spin on it).  Essentially, what he has been doing is mud slinging with his own spin on his own claims about God's Word, and others do us great service to call him (and others) on his errors (logical, historical, linguistic, etc).  God's Word does not need any defending, for it will not "return void."  God's Word will pan out without any help and without any understanding from any of us.  But, if you're going to try to "defend" God's Word, the least you ought to do is invite EVERYONE to the discussion table and allow everyone to include all the facts he / she knows uncensored, and you oughta to abstain from acting like a control freak by forcing a conclusion and dishing it out to itching ears so that you can gain their applaud (and continued financial support).
