Reason is a faculty far larger than mere objective force. When either the political or the scientific discourse announces itself as the voice of reason, it is playing God, and should be spanked and stood in the corner.

Good Morning & Happy Saturday,
Jimmy Simmy had a real good time in his truck.
Today is Saturday 08/31/V3.4 & it is the last day of August MMXIII
So I got the best news ever last night, yup it was good.
I was told that I have a loud voice that carries, I was told it was the voice of an Angel. The person who said it had nothing to gain, except making me say thank you. I’m okay with that.
I had a long night, got home after 2300. It is what it is. It was later than necessary, but I got to see the North Dakota State University Bison win the football game. It was a good game, we got the #Bison Swag. The University of Nebraska Omaha Mavericks had 4 games yesterday. The lost BOTH soccer games, they won the volleyball game, the Golf Teams were in Vermillion, S.D. and no one kept team scores. So we didn’t lose or win.
The word of the day is corsair which is a pirate, especially formerly of the Barbary Coast.
So we join the working week in progress, 5 days, 6 shifts, paid for 53 hours. Figure that per day hour out. It honestly isn’t that hard for math.
What are you doing today!

Good Morning & Happy Friday,
Today shall be Mesmerizing.
Today is Friday 08/30/V3.4 & it is Maverick Soccer Day in Omaha.
I started without internet on my PC, the light on the N150 Wireless adapter was down. I had to power cycle the network, didn’t work. I then had to go to my laptop and download a driver. I know have connection, I thought I’d have to buy a new device.
So let’s see what I am going to do today.
- Bed Already Made,
- Watching Omaha Morning Blend,
- Get my hair done.
- The UNO Soccer game?
The word of the day is gynarchy which is government by women.
Here’s a picture of me. ENJOY!!!
Y’know scientists are funny. We probe and measure and dissect. Invent lights without heat, weigh a caterpillar’s eyebrow. But when it comes to really important things we’re as stupid as the caveman…. Like love. Makes the world go ’round, but what do we know about it? Is it a fact? Is it chemistry? Electricity?

Story by William Alland (b. 1916).
Helping children at a level of genuine intellectual inquiry takes imagination on the part of the adult. Even more, it takes the courage to become a resource in unfamiliar areas of knowledge and in ones for which one has no taste. But parents, no less than teachers, must respect a child’s mind and not exploit it for their own vanity or ambition, or to soothe their own anxiety.

Good Morning & Happy Thursday,
So Under the Dome is 1,071 pages & that isn’t enough.
Today is Thursday 08/29/V3.4 & it is Game Night in some location that isn’t Omaha.
So I finished reading Stephen King’s Under the Dome and it is 1,071 pages. That doesn’t seem to have been enough though. I walked away having questions, but that is okay. The dome came down because of the kids. They compared it to a kid, his magnifying glass, and ants. The ants have lives too. I also don’t know if you watch the TV Show, but James Rennie does die in the end, Junior dies in the end, all the bad guys die in the end. The book as usually is better than a movie or teevee. I also think this is the BIGGEST book I’ve read from cover to cover. I also paid my $5.00 fine.
The word of the day is bulbous which is bulb-shaped; bulging.
Chapter VIII Article 51in the Charter of the United Nations, also take a read from the a US News Opinion article. I currently don’t support any US-led individual or collation attack on Syria. Also this – State Dept Admits It Doesn’t Know Who Ordered Syria’s Chemical Strike | The Cable.
So I’m hearing that there will be a National ‘Fast Food Strike’ today. If you aren’t working today, this is what you should do. Walk into a restaurant where they are striking and talk to the store manager. Inform them you are ready to work today, then as you leave be like. I just took your job, & I’m Lovin’ It, or whatever said restaurant’s slogan is. There are people willing to work in our nation, and once you agree to work for a company.
Well now that I’ve went on a couple political rants, I’ll bring you the good news.
YUP I’m having burrito’s for dinner tonight. I’m also going to take a nap and do laundry. Probably go get some Ice Cream too. I might go out on the towne and show you what’s up.
Vernon J out.
The better a work is, the more it attracts criticism; it is like the fleas who rush to jump on white linens.
