Will Any of this Matter in 100 Years?

Not that I'll be around to answer that question, and neither will my children, since I don't have any (something for which I am thankful every day, given the state of affairs)....but with all the alarming trends going on out there.......what will the world look like in 100 years?

Recent headlines are distressing -- The titans of Wall Street are crumbling; Islam is taking over Europe; Sharia courts are becoming part of the British legal system....has the world gone mad?

Where are our leaders? Who's sleeping on the job? It seems like we used to have adults in charge of these things, but now, it doesn't appear so.

Now I understand why we don't live more than 80-90 years. I don't think any of us could stand any more than that.


And now I'm reading this, and I may never buy anything 'designer' ever again.

Read it. It's in paperback. A $15 investment that may save you thousands in the future.

Luxury, indeed.

New Math

Scene: Restaurant patio, sunset, light breeze, small crowd

Couple #1 (them):
He orders filet mignon - $33
She orders mahi-mahi filet - $29

Couple #2 (us):
He orders Caesar Salad with chicken - $15
She orders fish tacos - $14.50

90 minutes later:
The bill arrives. Couple #1 suggests we just split it down the middle. So we do.

I think to myself: I wish we weren't so polite.

An Election Year Revelation

It has just occurred to me for the first time that I have never thought of this person as a woman. Never. Not once.

Houston, We Have a Problem

Well, here comes another one. Hunker down for a Texas-sized storm and hang on to your cowboy hat!

Keeping It All Airborne

Today, I feel like there's just too much stuff going on. I'm feeling overwhelmed, like there's too many things and not enough hours.

I wonder how I'm going to get it all done, and not just done but done well, because mediocre won't do for any of them. At the moment, it feels like I'm juggling too many balls in the air, and one of them just might hit the floor if I'm not very, very careful.
Maybe I'm just tired today, and things will be better in the morning. I sure hope so. Life has been a bugger lately. I think I need to go sit and have a good conversation with God tomorrow. That always helps.
