Yes. Draft resister and apparently lousy husband material. Founder and first President (1982) of the(now) Tennessee Songwriters Association. Libra/Virgo cusp. I rate pass/fail. My commentary provides gradation. My blog is a no hate zone. I'll erase hate in a heartbeat!

This nonsense about the I.R.S.  dead and discarded hard-drive stops here.

This is not rocket science.

Most hard-drive failures are due to electronic issues on the circuit board or miro-chip, and worm eaten registries complicate retrieval but FAT (file allocation table) headers can… Read full post »

To bomb or not to bomb.....

  It has occurred to me that it just might be in America's best interests to simply allow Shiite Iran to expend their resources in defending Shiite Iraq, while we bolster at most the always friendly Kurds, letting them keep their oil… Read full post »

Mary Dyer-American Martyr and Saint



Ironically, if it had not been for the television show “Drunk History”, I would probably have never heard of Mary Dyer. 

 “In Vino Veritas” indeed.

Mary was an English immigrant to colonial America who was born into apparently wealthy circumsta… Read full post »

The Power of "IT"!

Never underestimate the power or importance of the small things in life.


I learned this in part from the films in the MIB trilogy.

And just 'cause this is so sweet here's Diana singing
"Cry me a river"
Hmm, I remember singing this to y'all myself once long ago.

God is good!

I worship The Living God.

That may not be particularly intriguing to some nowadays.

I don’t care.

I seek to please God not them.

I don’t care to involve myself with the antithesis of that sentiment.

Nor will I tolerate it.

I don’t go on… Read full post »

Something we can all agree on.

I am thankful!

It is so easy these days to  see gloom and misery everywhere.

There's a whole lot of that out there today. 

But on this day before our national day of Thanksgiving, I believe that it behooves us one and all to count our real, actual, and even virtual, blessings.

So. I'll list… Read full post »

Moving up on the 50 year anniversary of JFK's assassination, I don't want to speculate in this post rather wish to merely point out the incongruities in the official version of events as to whether there were one or two shots that hit the President.
In the following video there is… Read full post »

I have often contemplated the causes of the most "unCivil War".

There is far more nuance than any "history" book discloses.

For instance what modern history book discloses the factoid that Abe Lincoln's favorite tune was "Dixie"  a popular Broadway musical number from the late 1850's.
