Simply put: I am attempting to create this blog which certainly is a challenge. In almost every other area of life's challenges, things seem to come easy for me, but with this blog, I have met my match.

let's be honest!!!

A lot of things are happening all over the world and right here in America. Unfortunately none of the goings on are good for mankind. Greed and hatred are the main ingredients in the evil brew that we feed on everyday. We hear it, we watch it, we read it. It dominates the news no matter how we subscribe to it and of course the media throws their own slant on the news based on the ingredients of their own greed and hate.
What do you think?

Simply interesting

The earth's diameter is 8,000 miles. It would take 24,000 miles to go around the earth.

Light travels 186,000 per second - over 600 million miles per hour. It travels around the earth in 1/7 of a second, from the earth to the moon in 1 1/2 seconds and from the earth to the sun in about 8 minutes. Yet it would take light over four years to reach the nearest fixed star and to reach many of the stars we see in the sky it would take hundreds of years

IF there could be a highway to the moon, it would take 20 months of constant driving at the rate of 400 miles per da to reach the moon.

If there could be a railroad stretching to the sun, a streamline train traveling 90 mph non-stop, day after day and year after year, would require 116 years to reach the sun.

An airplane flying at 500 mph would have to travel non-stop for 500 years to reach the nearest fixed star Source: Amazon Facts (www.Bibleuniverse.com

My Frog

He is hollow and his head lifts off. When I was a kid, I hid my money from my different jobs in the frog's body. My mother, bless her precious soul, passed away three years ago at the age of 93 kept my little treasure safely with her almost until the day that she died. Of all her personal belongings it was the only thing that I desired to have. The rest of her items were divided between my siblings.

This is my statement to the world and my fellow countrymen and women.
