MEXICAN FRIENDS: Call your parents mom and dad

FRIENDS: Have never seen you cry.
MEXICAN FRIENDS: Cry with you . . ..

FRIENDS: Will eat at your dinner table and leave.
MEXICAN FRIENDS: Will spend hours there, talking,
laughing and just being together and then take a plate to go. .

FRIENDS: Borrow your stuff for a few days then give it back.
MEXICAN FRIENDS: Keep your stuff so long they forget it's yours....

FRIENDS: Know a few things about you.
MEXICAN FRIENDS: Could write a book with direct quotes from you .. .

FRIENDS: Will leave you behind if that's what the crowd is doing.
MEXICAN FRIENDS: Will kick the whole crowds' a __ that left you.

The pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won. The pastor was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in another race, and it won again. The local paper read: Pastor's Ass Out Front. The Pastor's Ass Win's Double

The bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the pastor not to enter the donkey in any more races. The next day, the local paper headline read: Bishop Scratches Pastor's Ass.

This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the pastor to get rid of the donkey. The pastor decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent. The local paper, hearing of the news, posted the following
headline the next day: Nun has the Best Ass in Town.

The bishop fainted. He informed the nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a farmer for $10.
The next day the paper read: Nun Sells Ass for $10.

This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the nun to buy back the donkey and lead it to the high plains where it could run wild.
The next day the headlines read: Nun Announces her Ass is Wild and Free.

Alas;...... The bishop was buried the next day.

Moral of the story?? Being concerned about public opinion can bring you much grief and misery, and even shorten your life. So, be yourself and enjoy life ... Stop worrying about everyone else's ass, and you'll live longer and be a lot happier!

Missed an hour...

Some people don't like the hassle of Daylight Saving Time, having to switch your clocks once a year to gain either an hour daylight or in the fall an hour of sleep. I personally don't mind either way.

It's been a long busy week and I have been feeling tired all throughout, so I was looking forward to the time change today of setting the clocks back an hour. (In Mexico we do that the last Sunday of Oct.) I was on devo this morning so knew I had to be up for that, after my hour sleep in of course. Oh, I went to bed a happy man after resetting all my clocks and alarms.

This morning I am awakened to the ominous sound of banging pots and people talking loudly in the kitchen while they were making their breakfasts (our room is closest to the kitchen) and thinking I didn't want to get up... after dragging myself out of bed I looked at my clock wondering why my alarm hadn't gone off, imagine my surprise when it read 6:15 am. "NO," I thought, "they shouldn't be their making noise till 7:15 am."

So I go out and ask them "if they knew what time it was" with the sure answer of "7:15 am, same as every morning." I then asked "if they changed their clocks back" and received the reply, "Oh Crap, was that today?"

SpaceBook and MyFace...

... I have come to the conclusion that MySpace and Facebook are more of a continual online chat with hundreds of people. It is a constant struggle to block, accept or ignore the multitude of apps that I get sent daily. Some of which I got caught up in, like giving smiles, virtual gifts, pillow fights and answering stupid questions about whether "I would want to see a particular person naked" just so that I could find out who answered the same stupid question about me.

While I have enjoyed using Facebook to reconnect with multitudes of childhood friends and acquaintances, I don't like how in the long run I have neglected the maintenance of this blog. I started this blog with the intent of it being like an online journal of my life and the things in it. A few months ago when my HD crashed I lost 4 years of photos of my kids, that was tough. I am very happy though that I kept this blog for 2 1/2 of those years as I still have of photos of them here.

Yet while cobwebs grow here the number of my friends on Facebook continue to grow. I need to find the balance. The one line post's or updates are much easier to handle in Facebook, yet I miss the more in depth thought out content of this blog, along with the foolishness and relaxation you can also find in it's pages. So all that being said, I really want to keep up with this blog and do better at actual writing my online journal. You got to take time for the journey or life will go right on by and one day you wake up to find... you have Alzheimer's disease.
