We were getting too many roosters, so some had to be sold. My wife told my son to take pictures, and I was pleased at what good shots he got; but my first impression made me laugh. So, for those normal folks who are weird challenged, I've enhanced the pictures to bring out what I saw.
Google Sites Rocks....
As brief as possible:
After writing a post as graphic and foreboding as the one about guns, I get a mild case of writer's remorse. I wish things weren't that bad, I wish I could deny what I see, but somebody has to say it. I hope it provokes thought about those things, and, maybe less defending the party line for fear of reinforcing the opposition.
I've been wanting to say a few things about this blog. My name is Jim, I'm a sign maker that has reverted back to archaic methods to ply the trade, because the business practices I encounter with the newer technologies are in a word abusive. I moved to a rural part of Tennessee USA from the state of California. I left as part of a plan that would eventually take me away from this country entirely. My version of conservative Christianity overlaps the local traditions in limited ways. So I started a blog to let the local people know what my religious and political ideas are, hoping that even if they didn't agree, they might at least understand the reasoning behind our positions and practices; and that I was reasonable. For whatever reason, web stats say that this blog is the most visited part of the website. It might be that the stats software somehow calculates the number of blog visitors based on the number of blog postings that are showing, compared to the way the rest of the site is made; giving a higher number that what really is. whatever the case is, I appreciate your visiting.
I've tried to be very honest with myself for years, but in spite of that, it's amazing or sad how easily a little selective presentation of facts can lead to out right lying. Also interesting is how alienating the honesty pursuit can be. Sometimes I think about that word pedantic, too. Nonetheless, the benefits far outweigh the annoyances; I would have a hard time living with myself if I resorted to the party line or the religious tradition. Thank you for reading my blog, comments are welcome, I hope the buttons work. The reason I make all comments be verified is because I've had some really filthy spam in the comments section, and I won't let that sit for any hours or days.
