Dear Diary. Here’s My Thought For Today. Priest and Computers…….

Everyday I try to learn something new, it’s an old habit of mine. I feel that is the only way to grow. I have studied some wild and interesting things. Today’s study was very interesting to me. It was an interview (not mine, someone else’s) with a Priest that is also a nerd. Hear me out on this one. See he uses a cellphone and a IPad to do the majority of his work. I know, most if y’all are thinking yea, so what. Well here’s a few tidbits that I didn’t know/realize. First, in his “Priesthood” you are not allowed to have anything more than the bare essentials to sustain life. No money, no ANYTHING other than the very very basics, yet here he is with a cellphone and an IPad. He explains that the way he got them was he FIRST had to ask PERMISSION from his superiors to get those items. They agreed but he had to get them by raising donations, because, they too had no money. He raised the funds and purchased the two items. The ONLY reason that he wanted the two pieces was because so many of his members were wanting to communicate with him in ways other than having to go to the church to find him. He explained that he takes confessions electronicly, he writes his sermons on them, he talks an emails on them and he also maintains a church website. He explained that he only uses the basics of both devices. It is against his belief to purchase Apps or accessories for either. Think about this for a few minute folks. What a paradox! He lives in the extreme basic world of a Priest yet he uses modern day electronic devices to communicate with the outside world. I can’t phantom what that life style would be like. Just like you, I am totally “use-to” having all the “luxuries” of modern day life and do not need to ask permission to do anything. I think his life style is very interesting indeed and he is a wonderful person for choosing to serve his creator in such a way!

Dear Diary. Here’s My Thought For Today. Ma Ain’t Got No Money In Da Coffee Can…..

Ma Ain’t Got No Money In Da Coffee Can…..

In my article yesterday I discussed how Homsexuality is reshaping the world. I wrote that with as many giggles in it as I could, but also to bring to light our ever evolving human race. Tonight I want to touch on money and finances. Back when I was a little kid, my granddad kept all his money in a cigar box under the seat of his pickup truck. Grandma kept her’s in a coffee can. As I became a teenager, my folks started trusting the bank…..a little and opened a checking account. In the 80’s and 90’s most everyone wrote checks for purchases and the paper with all your personal information flowed freely between hands. Today we mostly use debit cards, credit cards and online banking. It is said by those that are much more informed than me, that in a few short years we will be totally electronic and there will be one world wide currency, I can’t even fathom that! In today’s world, we mostly shuffle money digitally and it’s really nothing but numbers getting passed around. The banking systems world wide are struggling to hold onto their markets. Don’t believe me? How many banks are in your town today compared to just a few years ago? They really are not needed as much as they use-to-be. Technology like Apple Pay is moving them more to online credit stores. Our world is surely changing and quickly! On the same general subject, did you know that more than 47% of Americans CAN NOT put their hands on $400.00 quickly if they needed it for an emergency?! That is very concerning!! What that should tell you is most of us are living BEHIND our pay check rather than in front. The well will run dry at that rate. Anyway, I hope that I have helped bring our “modern times” into better perspective. These days are not “bad” as the mass media portray them, our times are changing like they have since the beginning of, well, time. ?
Anyway, that’s the way I see it.

Dear Diary. Here’s My Thought For Today. The Impacts of Homsexuality……

Ok, let’s start with a disclaimer because I know SOME of y’all are gonna get’cha drawers all twisted up. This post is written to both be funny AND thought provoking. There are subliminal messages laced through out with the intend to cause laughter and thought. This was all brought about after last night’s cat fight between the Presidental “choices”. 

How this “Open Gayness” is shaping the world. First, yep, I have friends whom feel that their body does not represent their thinkin’. Cool, I can deal with that and for the record, an I am serious here, I DON’T CARE who or what ya sleep with, that’s your thang, not mine. I am too busy doing my own thing to try to tell ya how to live your life, go for it if it makes ya happy. All that said, let’s take a tounge in cheek look at how our world is evolving. The first thing that pops up in my mind is country music will die. Think about it. Most every country music song written is about a “him” and a “her”. Under the current trends, there won’t be very many him an hers left to enjoy the songs. HECK, most rock will die off too. The rabbit dying in a song will be “old school”, the song about standing outside a bar watching her sashy down the street will not have the same effect and Lord knows anything from the ’50’s is TOTALLY OUT! Now let’s look at our new driver’s license of the future. No longer will they have male of female on them, they instead will have “it” or “breeder”. That’s right folks, “it’s” can’t breed so SOMEONE has to do that for them. So, in the future when folks are hitting up on each other in a bar, the first line will not be “well I’ve never seen you in here before”, the first question will need to be “it or breeder”? An oh man, saggy pant. Will the “its” (we can’t call them male/females anymore) wear pants hanging down to their knees like the bro dudes have been doing for awhile? Bra’s? I know male AND females that need ’em! Clothing? Are we all gonna dress like they did in Star Trak? If so, there’s a heck a lot of y’all that need to loose a ton of weight to get in those outfits!! Father’s Day and Mother’s will have to be struck from the calander. Church? OH MY, the rules would defiantly need to be adjusted there!!!! Valentine’s Day will get more interesting, who get’s the flowers? The use of Mr., Mrs. and Ms. Will need to be banded from the books and speaking of band, the wedding bands will need to change too! Will children be sold to the highest bidder? “It’s” can not produce children, but they want ’em. The bathroom in homes can no longer be marketed as his and her’s, they will be referred to as water closets. Can “it’s” be nuns or priest (yes, I know there is homosexualalty in “the cloth”. I am referring to the new designation of “it”). In the military during battle it is custom for all troops to carry a “universal load” for the good of the group (i.e., extra ammo, bandages, parts to the heavy long guns, etc). Will this mean that everyone must carry feminine products and Midol (I know some guys that might need that stuff). And on an ending note. Will all the fairy tales of yester year be eliminated from the children’s books? 
All this reminds me of back when I was a little kid and schools were integrated. My folks said us younguns would become babbling idiots because we had to sit in class with “them black folk”. 
Everything said here is in jest and meant to cause pause for us to think. We are facing interesting times indeed. ?
AGAIN, I will say, this post is written to invoke laughter and thought. It is not meant to bash anyone’s “feelings” and if any of y’all feel the desire to bash said feelings, take it some where else, we have fun and laugh at each other’s perceived notions of “right” on this site and we think. 

 Anyway, that’s the way I see it.

Dear Diary. Here’s My Thought For Today. Road Blocks…..

If someone tries to throw a road block in front of ya, don’t stop and argue about it, go around. Focus on your goal, not the distractors.
