Currently living on disability SSDI. Working part time with autistic children. #CHANGE Published my first novel on Amazon - Reestablishing a Friendship: A Ghost Story. Now working on publishing poems. Then, a non fiction work on Taoist thought
I've been an English teacher; counselor; lots of life experiences; various other jobs and even Navy time. Three grown kids - all great and educated. I believe math and rules. I even believe I can argue language is in its lowest form binary. I read; I write; I like hiking, but haven't done many this summer. Currently spending a lot if time in the area.

Texas wanted to secede
Beowulfsfriend comments on Apr 25, 2020:
If they would, cut off all US money going there, including SS. Take away all the military bases. Shut down all federal programs. Cut off all veterans pay and such. See how long they would take that.
Texas wanted to secede
Beowulfsfriend comments on Apr 25, 2020:
Only if they take Kentucky and the other red states that do not pay as much into the federal government as they take back. Texas is one of the few red states that pays in more than it receives; i am pretty sure that even they would get tired of paying for other states if they had to do so on their own.
Barely bearable.
Beowulfsfriend comments on Apr 25, 2020:
Once, when camping, I had a bear come into my campsite. I had put all the food up on a tree swing. I had left a gallon of water on the table. The mother bear walked over to it and bit it. Water came out and she walked away, leaving me with an excellent bear teeth impression. I expect she hoped it was tea or such.

My opinion, from what I read, checking science articles and such, we are looking more-and-more like the graph of the Spanish flu, which had a "big" spike, lock down and social distancing in effect, then drops off, things end, like the war, and a little bit later, a "BIG" spike. I have a bad inkling about this. We are not living in an Avengers movie.

Beowulfsfriend comments on Apr 22, 2020:
There are some here who have a hierarchy of religions with some as being totally insane crazy. I, too, find correcting their knowledge annoying. As with Christians who rant about Sharia law, I say, I agree that it is evil, just as all Abrahanic law is evil and alk groups have the same basic beliefs. Also, as I rend to point out, which ever religious group controls a country, it tends to demonize and bring down all others not within its fold. The US was founded by a bunch of, at best, marginally religious elite who wanted their leadership to not be constrained by religion - now that truth is being rewritten by the evangelicals. Ah well, I am rambling.

They sure caved damned fast when the Carter administration threatened to revoke their tax free status ( damn, where are those days now) for claiming blacks did not go to heaven - actually, a black mormon did go to heaven but turned white. Suddenly, just after the threat, their leader had a revelation from god and blacks are a part of mormon heaven.

These same people, in the cult of tRump, are willing to make him a dictator and actually believe they would be allowed to keep their guns if they do so. They have no understanding of fascism or reality. One new argument I've seen in their hypocrisy is - those wanting us to stay in to "save lives" are aborsonists who kill millions and we can't allow that.

My eldest went to xtion church. I was a long time non xtion believer, yet got roped into teaching adult Sunday school - I taught ethics. It was my ex-bro-in-law church. Finally my ex caught up with me and we left. Did the Unitarians for years and still find them a pretty good place (each group is slightly different but all seem tolerant of all thought). My kids are all grown and none consider themselves xtions, etc. Two still identify as lapsed Unitarians while one, since very early childhood, rejected all god. Anyway, best wishes on your journey.

Her father was an Irish war lord and her mother died. When she grew up she looked so much like her mother that her father decided to marry her. She ran away to what is now Belgium. He caught up with her. She spent too much of her money on building a hospital and such and he had her tracked. Had her head cut off. https://www.catholic.org/saints/saint.php?saint_id=222
