The Big 3-0

I once thought that when I turned 18, I would be an adult. But then I turned 18 and I still worked at KFC and occasionally had minor run-ins with the law and went to parties at the end of long, dirt roads in the middle of nowhere that had bonfires and Natural Ice beer and boys who beat each other up. ...more

The "F" Words - 50, Fitless and now ... Failure

Ok, so this past weekend I was going for a walk.  It didn't happen.  Saturday my son played cricket, that lasted until around noon.  Then I went to the supermarket, then I did the laundry, then I started cleaning the house.  Then I made dinner, did some ironing and ... the walk didn't get slotted in. ...more

The "F" words - 50 & Fitless

If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. – Mark Twain If there’s one thing that no one in this world is exempt from, no matter how rich, how poor, how thin, how nice, how evil, how generous, WHATEVER… it’s AGING. Yes, we are all aging. And we are all fighting it at the exact same rate as the next person. Some will age better, some worse, but it’s a process we all must face whether we like it or not....more


That's just the starting point of maturing. You're right about eating well, proper ...more

Need an answered prayer?

JMJ Do you have a prayer request? A special need?  Well, I spent all night placing a live webcam to Lourdes, France on my website, including a little mailbox to their prayer request email.  All kinds of weird computer problems kept cropping up, and I kept offering them up as a prayer, which did help to keep me from being annoyed.  Then... This morning I got an email from a friend who told me that today is OUR LADY OF LOURDES FEAST DAY!  Wow.  I had no idea!  That is just so cool... ...more
