  18. I'm guessing Luke or Luke signed in with one of his TOM accounts did not drop in to wish anyone a Merry Christmas? I think he makes it clear by his behavior that it is the same person. I mean, how unlikely that another "TOM" (all caps) would decide he also had the same grudge against RN and decide to relentlessly troll this blog? I don't get what the point is. Anyway, "Merry Christmas" as well as another full year closer to death for me tomorrow.

  21. On this, the 25th day of December 2016 we wish ALL the best the season has to offer. And so we say Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!

    Regardless of where one live on this globe we all call home, regardless of our job, religious affiliation, political leanings, sexual orientation, or anything else one may think of we are, or at least ought to be, brothers and sisters in our one common attribute, We're All Humans.

    he Dalai Lama reminds us:

    When you practice gratefulness, there is a sense of respect toward others.

    If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

    When you practice gratefulness, there is a sense of respect toward others.

    Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.

    Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.

    We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection.

    The important thing is that men should have a purpose in life. It should be something useful, something good.


    We hope the incoming president reflects on and understands the simple and profound truths the Dalai Lama expresses in such simplicity.

    1. The Dalai Lama would kinda be the anti Ayn Rand, don't you think? BTW, as per the NY Intelligencer Trump described himself as an Ayn Rand fan. He said of her novel The Fountainhead, "It relates to business (and) beauty (and) life and inner emotions. That book relates to ... everything". He identified with Howard Roark, the novel's idealistic protagonist who designs skyscrapers and rages against the establishment.

    2. Apparently many do not understand the good elements in Rand's philosophy, particularly the concept of rational self interest. That's fine as everyone has their own views and opinions. Hopefully they're based on reading, rational thought, and reflection leading to understanding.

      Yeah I quickly read the Trump is the "New King" brouhaha. Simply incredible!

  22. TOM/Steve/Luke, as we noted earlier none of your vile comments, F bombs, or other totally un-Christian blathering will be posted. As they are deleted unread enjoy your mental masturbation.

  23. Merry Christmas Les, Shaw, Dave, Jerry, BB, dmarks, Dervish and all other visitors to this blog of merry heart and good faith! I've been playing so much Christmas music at church, I've just about had it. Just woke up from a sweet nap. The sun is shining bright after the rain. Kids are coming over for Christmas Dinner. Ham, Mac n Cheese, Banana Nut Bread, Hot Chocolate, Goodies all around.

    Be of good cheer and have a strong and successful 2017.

    1. Merry Christmas Flying Junior! It sounds as though you had a busy and joyful Christmas.

      Enjoy the family dinner because they are among life's many treasures and are what memories are made of.

      Always of good cheer, even given that the consequences of November's election may prove disastrous in the near AND long run.

      A strong and successful 2017 to you and your family too!

    1. Thanks Jersey, same to you and yours!

      As you know I'm not a religious guy in the conventional/classical sense. But there is something to be said for the SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS, meaning how Christ the man taught his followers to live and treat others.

      On a different note. I read about your medical issue sometime ago on another weblog. I don't know if you ever check your weblogs anymore but I left a comment there.

      Our thoughts are with you Jersey and we're sure you'll defeat your adbersary. We are sending good vibes your way.
