Another near perfect day filled with peace and purpose. Some business to tend to and a few errands to run, followed by some Beef Lo Mein and an ice cold root beer. Then off to schoolla boolla and back home for a pleasant evening watching some TV and working on the computer. Its a simple life for a complicated guy, just the way I like it!

Speaking about computers… I see a comment about my imbedded audio file and the install of the un-realplayer. It sent a shiver down my spine. You see I am not a big fan of real from days gone by. In the early days of the real player it was a top heavy and dominate player that didn't play well with other media players. It would make system changes when installing, and if you tried to uninstall it, it would often leave file associations at odds.

In fairness to real I haven't used their programs in a few years and seldom come across a file that is in the real format, that isn't also offered in alternative formats.

So what does any of this have to do with the cost of a cup of hot coffee? I have changed the audio intro, and have opted for a mini flash player. Flash is cool and we all have it. So If you don't have a use for the real player and its on your system, send it to the digital scrap heap!

Less is more.

Time is time

It has been some time since I have done any blogging. I think it is because I can never think of much to say. So now I am going to take some time for it is high time I tend to this blog and earn my keep as a buster blogger.

If you heard my audio intro for the first time don't be startled. It is not any thing serious. It is just a recording I made and did a little digital modification to. I think it has a freaky sound to it . Hence its name. freak.mp3.

Today was another good day filled with more to be thankful for than I can even recognize. It is once again that magical time of the early morning for me to have a small bowl of cereal and then its off to bed. I will take a moment and thank my creator for all the blessings and favor I have been granted, and sleep with a quite mind and a peaceful soul.

Predators of our own makings…

The predators of life are our God given instincts. They are good and serve a purpose if used rightly. However when they become defective or twisted, it is then that these instincts become troublesome. The balance comes from self inventory prayer and right thinking followed by right actions. I heard a saying that says,” Let no man steel your joy.” For peace and contentment comes from God and when we rely on Him no outside calamity should bring a disturbance. Our problems are a manifestation of self. Self-Created.

Its a New Day!

The new year is here. It begins with the first day, filled with opportunity for both good and bad. The capacity for both are equally part of are nature. What separates or defines the two is the still small voice with in us all.

I just finished watching a movie with my wife while enjoying a bowl of popcorn. one of the lines in the movie caught my attention. “Deep down you may still be that same great kid you used to be. But it's not who you are underneath, it's what you do that defines you.” There is a lot of truth in that.

It has been another good day and I will go to bed thankful.

The end of a year, and a promise of hope


   It is nearly the end of another year and I have much to be thankful for. It has been a good year, I have not yet gotten all that I want, but God has given me much more then I need.

   A new year awaits us,  I look forward to all that the future has to bring. My daily resolution will be to think of myself just a little less and help others a little more. 

Happy New Year!
