Some of the most exceptional people I
If you're having a REALLY bad day, is
I was sitting among some members of a
The third generation family member
Years ago, I think I was listening to
If the Bible is subject to many
But you know what? It wouldn't fly;
What about you? Do you need some blank

So often a decision is between difficult A, and difficult B. Then, after you make it, others around you think you decided wrong.. There you are, alone, and wondering. The phone doesn't ring 10 minutes later with a great paying job; as though God was saying, well done, you passed the test.
Remember the future generations.

Life is complex, which is one of the things that make it difficult for people to be informed in today's world. So...in an effort to help the public be clearly defined as to what the true agenda of Liberals and their comrades in the Pravda main stream media is, I propose that Republicans offer to raise the debt ceiling by not a penny more than what is required to service the national debt.
They all howl about it as though it's a financial calamity and the end of a once great respectability worldwide. It would be fun to watch their reaction. They would be caught off guard for just a second, then go into automated shift about old people dying without their prescriptions.

Things have been busy, so I've had little time to write. I had a big paint job in Knoxville to finish, and we moved our household. The house we moved into was quite thrashed; but I've learned something in the process. With a large family, if we moved into a pristine house, it would be inevitable that we bring it down a notch or two. The children make paths in the yard where they play, things like that.
But if we move into a really beat up house, then do repairs, it brings the look of the place up 5 or 6 notches, at least. That's how it appears to be working out here. The landlord is happy, the wife is happy, probably the neighbors too, and it's fun for me to do the repairs.
This house was built in 1900. It looks like it had wood siding, which was later covered with those 12 inch tall by 24 inch wide tiles. Some of the tiles have broken, which makes the place look bad. A hodge podge paint job doesn't help either. I don't want to be working with that old tile material, but as it turns out, I don't have to. The rent here is pretty cheap, which suits me fine, 'cause I'm the king of cheap. His majesty was quite pleased to realize that all these scraps of “Polymetal”, which is a knockoff of “Diebond”, work well as replacement tile pieces. I had a number of 12 inch by 8 foot long pieces, imagine that. This material is a layer of black PVC plastic, about 1/8 inch thick in the middle, with a thin sheet of aluminum of both sides. It's light, rigid, resists weathering well, and comes with a nice painted finish. The pieces I have are white. I'll try to insert a couple of before and after pictures below
