Some of you may recall when I first started blogging on 360, it's nice to know that some of you still follow the blog. Not much has changed with the way I write since I've moved to a wider audience; I'm still just as blunt and opinionated here as I was there.
It has come to my attention that SOME people feel I am too opinionated, well, that's too damn bad. This is a blog, my blog to be specific. This blog originates in the United States of America where I excercise my constitutional right to express myself.
The last time I checked there were no laws that forced individuals to read blogs, namely my blog; doing so is done by your own free will. In case you are unsure as to what that means, it means you read because you want to, not because someone makes you. With that said, if my blog offends you, there is a simple solution, STOP READING IT! IDIOT!
Yep, I said idiot, my blog remember? I can say what I want, its a beautiful thing!
This blog does not exist on the basis of advertisements, endorsements, etc. It exists because I choose to sit and use my creative mind in writing. It will exist whether you read it or not. It will exist whether you like it or not. I write for myself, not for other people. It is a nice thing to know that other people take an interest in some of the things that I write, however, I will continue to write regardless of whether anyone reads or likes it. Writing makes me happy, it's a wonderful outlet. Censorship of this blog is futile. You do however have control over ever seeing it again... STOP READING IT!
It warms my heart to know that the mere writings of little ole me could spawn such an uproar! I'm a success!

Censorship, like charity, should begin at home, but unlike charity, it should end there. –Clare Boothe Luce

My 2 Cents

Life is good dude. Know it!

Simple is not always good. Sometimes, but not always.

Be free. Who needs underwear.

You pay for a college education over time. You pay for being uneducated forever.

Dogs are cute. Dogs stink. I don't own a dog.

Greed is a disease. I think I have it.

Lonely is boring. Make friends.

I'm laughing at this moment for no reason. It feels great. Try it.

Just my 2 cents... :-)

Music is my medicine, no matter what the ailment, I can get a dose of music to aid in the healing process.

Things We Should Know

Sometimes the simple is not always the obvious. I am a person that likes to watch other people and their actions and reactions, in doing this, it becomes apparrent that there a many simple things that we should know and/or do that we overlook in our daily lives.
I doubt that there could ever be a conclusive list of these things because each of us could always add just one more entry; the items below are just a few oddballs that I have noticed seem to get overlooked frequently.

  • If you stink, please take the stairs. Smokers, we all stink. Please stay out of the elevator. If you pump your cologne or perfume bottle more than twice, your scent is no longer subtle, its now intrusive, you too should stay out the elevator. The universe thanks you in advance.
  • If you weigh a good 400 pounds, and you are enthusiastically licking an ice cream cone in each hand, expect a few amazed stares and don't return and offended glare.
  • The yellow light - it means CAUTION people! You can still proceed through the intersection, just do it cautiously! Those of us behind you would appreciate it.
  • If you had cod fish for dinner last night, it is not appropriate to bring it to work and heat it in the community microwave that the rest of us have to use. The stench remains for hours and it has a tendency to venture over into what the rest of us are having for lunch. (this also applies to other foods that have a distinct long-lasting odor)
  • Remember please and thank you? Yes, they still apply and yes they still work, use them.
  • There are sinks in the bathroom for a reason, and no its not so you can get a sip of water. WASH YOUR HANDS!
  • Just for MARTA (atlata bus/train system) riders. Those large seats with all the extra spaces that are adjacent to the doors, they really are for persons with disabilities and the elderly, the sign is not there for giggles.
  • Folks with dogs, these are your pets, not your neighbors pets. Please keep their waste in YOUR yard and don't let it venture into the yards of your neighbors.

Enough! But as you are pondering these, I'm sure you will have your own to add.
