Another week escaped me

Well the Oldsmobile is done. Her joints have been replaced and she no longer feels like she’s all over the road. Next project on her is either going to be adjusting the steering box or new tires…guess it depends on funds. Also changed the 20 year old oil while we were under there and corrected a few ‘jury rigs’ that the last owner did to her.

As for me, doing okay on the writing front. Picked up a few more clients so I’m keeping busy. Between housework, yard work (and there is a lot) and writing, I am almost continually on the go. My only problem is keeping myself on track and not distracted by video games, blogs etc.

Things have been hectic since my last post, I haven’t even had a chance to read or respond to any of my normal blogs. I’ve had a lot of writing to do lately, most of it ghost writing so I can’t even lay claim to it, but it pays the bills.

For a mother’s day/birthday gift my hubby bought me the front end assembly for my Oldsmobile, so once that shows up I’ll be spending a lot of time of underneath her replacing 70-year-old joints (if only it was that easy for the rest of us). Once done it will be a lot safer to take her to the car shows and I won’t have to worry about breaking something every time I hit a bump.

This is going to be my last free weekend for the next several months. The only thing I have planned is some yard work from here out I have every weekend booked, and some of them are double booked. It’s going to be a busy summer.

Not much else to say so I’m just going to sign off. Have a good one.

A Generation of Automatons

Entire generations grew up playing cowboys and indians, cops and robbers, or superheros and villains. What percentage of us are mass murders? Are we twisted and cruel? No, we learned respect for authority, we created role models to live up to.

How many of us grew up seeing Greek statues and French artwork in our textbooks? Yeah we giggled because they were naked or fat. We were children,that is what children do. Did that make us perverts? No, it just taught us to appreciate another’s perspective of beauty.

I can kill someone with a pen, a stone or even my bare hands. I could create a bomb from ‘harmless’ cleaning supplies. So are they going to protect us from writing or the earth itself? Do we all need to wear mittens so we can’t choke the life out of someone?

They still teach Shakespeare in school, has anyone actually ‘looked’ at the meanings behind some of it, not all of his writings are clean and wholesome, in fact very little of it is. Even in music, a lot of todays music is cleaner than it was 20 years ago, or even 50. Actually read some of the lyrics from Conway Twittywhere do you think some of your favorite bands got their names?

The only things that have been truly banned from schools in North America are common sense, free will and real education. If you teach common sense and allow free will then the rest will follow.

North America is churning out a nation of automatons. I am raising a free thinker, and I encourage him to keep his creativity and free will, if that means he gets in trouble at school then so be it…I will fight tooth and nail to give him true opportunity and to allow him to stand out from the crowd of mindless drones that are being created.

As for the whole bullying B.S. That seems to be one of the soapboxes right now, I’m not going any further than to say, teach the bullied to hit back, let them retaliate. Enough pussy footing around things.

Sorry for the rant, I’ve just seen too much lately and had to voice my opinions.
