Quotes from the World for Friday 09/30/MMXI

What might be taken for a precocious genius is the genius of childhood. When the child grows up, it disappears without a trace. It may happen that this boy will become a real painter some day, or even a great painter. But then he will have to begin everything again, from zero.

Pablo Picasso
Pablo Picasso (1881–1973), Spanish artist. Quoted in Gyula Brassaï, Picasso and Company, p. 86 (1964, trans. 1966).

Dissemination of Dis-Information

So someone posted on Google +

In the state of Nebraska there is a new law that says your child has to have a doctor’s note in order for their absence to be medically excused. What a pain in the butt.

I engaged in this conversation.   I don’t know it is public, but here is the link. https://plus.google.com/106750223739592017361/posts/QaWFJCykx2z

I inquired if she was talking about LB463? She did not deny that she was, so I am inclined to believe she was. AT no point did that bill indicate what she displayed. The bill information can be found here, you can read & decide for yourself.

I can’t accept the dissemination of Dis-Information.

I urge individuals to not participate in the dissemination of Dis-Information, & I urge you to hold Vernon J responsible as well.

Whoo, Happy FNP

Good Morning & Happy FNP!

Something witty & funny here, ah just follow Vernon J on twitter.

The word of the day is votary which is One who is devoted, given, or addicted to some particular pursuit, subject, study, or way of life.

Have a GREAT FNP!!!

Omaha IS a Bicycle Friendly Community

Good Morning & Happy Thursday “Bob” of “Omaha World​​-Herald”.

I was reading the “story” about Omaha being a Bicycle Friendly Community(http://www.omaha.com/article/20110929/LIVEWELL02/709299906#omaha-joins-ranks-of-bike-friendly). I noticed that you had quotes around Bicycle Friendly Community. Just this morning when I got on Metro Route 55 Millard I brought my bike on the bus. Because I’m biking home in Omaha after work.

What was your intent on putting the quotes around Bicycle Friendly Community?

I don’t get paid to be a journalist, but I’ve been published a few times & I do have a blog. But I am set aghast at your use of the quotations!


“Bob” is on my ‘I am a poor journalist’ list.  There’s not an actually list, but if there was he’d be on it.


To appear fair & balance, I’m NOT!
Bob responded that

It’s to note the title of the designation. There was no editorial comment intended.

I still don’t like the implication & I know there is at least one more person out there who may not like it as well.

All I Can Be

Good Morning & Happy Thursday.

All Vernon J can be is what he has been taught, learned, & experienced. Nothing more & don’t accept anything less.

Today is Thursday 09/28/V3.2.

Its laundry day for this guy. I also get to go pick up my camera, that I left at the hotel. I hope none of those pictures get out on the internet. Oh? I already put them on Http://photos.Vernon-J.com, awkward. Don’t worry, there isn’t anything revealing or controversial.

II days left.

I also got in my II hugs for Hug II People Day yesterday, did you?

I had a good nights sleep.

The word of the day is woolgathering which is an indulgence in idle daydreaming.

Have a great day & limit the woolgathering.

Quotes from the World for Wednesday 09/28/MMXI

Society is held together by our need; we bind it together with legend, myth, coercion, fearing that without it we will be hurled into that void, within which, like the earth before the Word was spoken, the foundations of society are hidden.
