How To Save Money On Frozen Foods!

How To Save Money On Frozen Foods!

Opinion by John Liming I admit it!  I am a fat guy and I am sometimes a lazy guy to boot! When I was working, before I retired, I used to come home from a hot, hard day at the plant and plop face down on my bed in an  air conditioned room contemplating whether or not to eat the evening meal--and wondering what to eat in case I did eat. I was usually too exhausted from slaving away at my steel forge(Temperatures ...

Are We Making Progess?

Are We Making Progess?

Lindsay Lohan does it while she is in jewelry stores. Newt Gingrich does it.  Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore do it a lot.  Chris Lee and Anthony Weiner did it and caused a ruckus. I have done it but frankly, I just don't get the point of it. I am, of course, talking about the  ugly little half-sister to Facebook, TWITTER. Would someone, please explain the enjoyment of Twitter to me?   Why do people want to put the limitation on their communication at ...

Hiding in a Paragraph

Cover Art by Fran MurphyI just published my 100th Blog post this week. Looking over my one hundred entries I noticed that I’ve written on scores of subjects, yet I don’t believe that I’ve ever written on the subject of writing. I guess I’ve sort of kept this topic tucked away. It’s something so personal that I tend to keep it to myself...forgetting that it’s a viable topic. I think about it all the time; probably as much as a ...

Portugal: Growing Fruit and Vegetables – November

My passion for gardening has taken a back seat during November due to my trip to France, illness and of course the National Novel Writing 30 day challenge. However, much to my surprise everything, bar the cucumbers growing in pots, survived despite being unloved and neglected. Temperatures in the day hovered around 18C and 12C at night. So not cold, but it rained, oh boy did it rain! The green peppers planted in the raised bed, continue to thrive and bear ...

What is Companion Planting?

Just like human beings, plants also have friends and enemies. For some reason or other, some plants seem to grow best when in the company of certain plants. Companion planting is the act of deliberately growing plants together in a close proximity to create a mutually beneficial relationship that encourages plants to grow and stay healthy, while deterring harmful pests. In addition, plants can help each other provide nutrients in the soil, offer protection from the elements and attract beneficial pests ...

Gardening in New Orleans

Our garden is growing – we have tomatoes, peppers, cucumber and melon plus a lot of herbs growing at breakneck speed. Something new is always popping up. The funny thing about gardening is that once you figure it out in one place there is NO guarantee you will be successful (at first) in a different place. Some of the tomatoes are being eaten by something – not cutworms, but something I have yet to identify. There are bugs and worms that I ...

Dominance Games / Politics: Souls work to build

Dominance Games / Politics

If they had a soul they would sell it for the right to be a facetious player.

If they had a soul they would sell it for the right to be a mouth with an air base  attached.

If they had a soul they would sell it for the right to be a parody of what ever they thought irredeemable and smart and with worth while in the better moments of their better natures…. the mirage of time.

If they had a soul they would sell it for the right to be a spouting child with things and themes and parodies and whistles in the wind.

If they had a soul they would sell it for the right to be a joke laughing as a joke laughing is the most cynical form of achievement that we have.

If they had a soul they would sell it for the right to be a mole and a sniper and a toe biter and a heel snipper and a sniffer.

If they had a soul they would sell it for the right to be a smarmy piece of turf warrior loving the battles of immaturity as the mother and comfort of us all.

If they had a soul they would sell it for the right to be a power in the cauldrons of the big dog in the tepid pond.

If they had a soul they would sell it for the right to be a colic, a waste of  a simpering gobbler and bundler of narrow insincere inconsequential empty inviting logic of the fleas.

If they had a soul they would be the joke to us all.

Souls work to build.
