Making those burnt offerings to various and sundry gods and goddesses seems to be working. We haven't had any earthquakes in several days.

Unfortunately, I've burned all the brush piles. I still have leaves to rake up, but we don't burn leaves. They go in the compost pile. Do you think gods and goddesses look favorably upon composted offerings?

I would go with "those who know the truth are condemned to repeat it out loud despite the derision and disbelief by linear folks who follow dogma."

Those at S.R.I. know what I mean in the area of psi ability in a population that can range from tone-deaf to virtuoso in the ability to read time and places in seeming impossible ways.

After all everything we have and use now were at one time merely imagination without substance and consciousness has a vast invisible spectrum.

Otherwise I belong to the average Joe Club, or even below average.

Those who cannot see the truth are condemned to tell it.

I can see clearly now, or at least soon, as I have new eyeglasses coming. And my car will finally be "detailed" next Tuesday. Today I had a new passenger-side airbag installed so someone who might be riding with me shouldn't die in an airbag explosion if there was a wreck, if they're lucky.

"Wow! I'm neither rich nor famous AND neither poor nor disreputable. I'm just sort of a doughfaced mugwump, a bourgeois, a centrist, a middle-of-the-roader, a man in the middle, a fence-sitting Average Joe, a balanced and cautious, reasonable and noncommittal, moderate and impartial, old crank."

That is the single most anti BS honest post that social media has ever seen.
But there is the rub, it may be too honest.

Yesterday, I offered up one burnt offering apiece to the two goddesses I inadvertently offended a few days back. I burned a small pile of downed limbs for Venus and a larger pile of accumulated brush for Athena. Or maybe it was the other way around.

I have more piles to burn today. Perhaps I'll offer them to some non-Greco-Roman deities. Frig would probably appreciate a flaming pine bough or two. And Kali would surely react favorably to a big pile of flaming wild grape vines.

Wow! I'm neither rich nor famous AND neither poor nor disreputable. I'm just sort of a doughfaced mugwump, a bourgeois, a centrist, a middle-of-the-roader, a man in the middle, a fence-sitting Average Joe, a balanced and cautious, reasonable and noncommittal, moderate and impartial, old crank.

The only reason I even know of Honey Boo Boo and her family is from a Mudcat thread a few years back. If memory serves, Bobert and Spaw were going on about it. I have never seen the program.

And the rich and famous may have a fondness for powdered cocaine, but it's the poor and disreputable who smoke the crack/rock variety.

How come all recent pictures of goddesses are young, lithe, long-legged, long-haired, scantily clad or clingy clad? Even those of war goddesses, like Athena and the Morrigan.

My head surgery went well. A fairly large cyst was removed; apparently it formed where my mother dropped me on my head when I was a baby. (True! It took me three hours to crawl home, where I was greeted with "Oh. It's you.")

The birth of Athena who sprang from the forehead of Zeus was known as the greatest headache of all time. The single smartest Goddess sprang from the 3rd eye in Zeus' forehead fully formed dressed in amour and sword and shield. Ouch.

Zeus did not have room for the intelligence in his tiny skull.
The only place on Earth you can still see Athena is Nashville TN.,
a place in extreme need of intelligence. Athena

Of course it was Athena who sprang from Zeus's forehead. I was in somewhat of a state of shock about Amos and got my goddesses crossed. And crossed goddesses are nothing to shake a stick at.

Venus, now, she did not spring from the forehead of Jupiter or Zeus.

While Amos will be sorely missed here on the MOAB, he did leave behind progeny (of a sort). Let us not forget that Gluon the Duckdog, cosmic voyager, space-time warper, and leg-humper extraordinaire was the creation of Mr. Jessup. While it's doubtful that Gluon emerged fully-formed from Amos's noggin in the same dramatic fashion as Venus springing from the forehead of Zeus, it was probably in that same general conceptual arena.   


So, when you see a QUARK!!!, think fondly of Amos.

And Zeus was just a big show-off anyway.

So, Amos' cousin got bedded on the couch in my living room. I said to Amos, "You're sleeping in the basement." He asked, rather indignantly IMO, "Is it a real bed?" I eyed him up and down in slow and measured fashion and said, "You'll fit." THAT shut him up. Heheheheee! But, he got a nice bed, a good sleep, his own washroom, a morning shower, and a hearty breakfast. We NBers treat company well... same as everyone else.

He had several poetry and song challenge threads as well, agreed. I have some clues to work from—we exchanged emails or PMs about the ones I was pulling up for him, so I can go expose them (and while I'm at it, save a copy for family who might be interested, if he didn't do that already himself.)

Amos praised me!

Oh, NOBLY said, Booquemanne! NOBLY said!

The remarka [sic] by Mark Twain were called " Some Thoughts on the Science of Onanism". Old Sam delivered them in 1879, to an outfit called The Stomach Club, a society of American ne'er-do-wells and writers -- oh, but I repeat myself -- in Paris.

Among other profound insights on the subject, Sam remarked:

Homer, in the second book of the Iliad says with fine
enthusiasm, "Give me masturbation or give me death." Caesar, in
his Commentaries, says, "To the lonely it is company; to the
forsaken it is a friend; to the aged and to the impotent it is a
benefactor. They that are penniless are yet rich, in that they
still have this majestic diversion." In another place this
experienced observer has said, "There are times when I prefer it
to sodomy."

This is linguistic richesse worthy or Rapparree, worthy of the great BeeDub, worthy of--dare I say it?-- our Mom her very self! Oh, if Sam lived today, he'd surely be a hero of the MOAB, a BS firebrand of the first order!

For on line dating
I need to write some words that do not scare
"My hard ware is good
but I need to update all my abs
Faith is no problem,
You name a church and I will not go there
I am slowing down
but I will not need any long term care

I don't like to run
but I walk a lot and limp with a flair
My firmware is strong,
they say I'm attached to my motherboard
I live in DC,
ever since I lost my damn return fare
I'd move to Maui
but they say volcanos smell like burnt hair

I like to have fun
It will take an hour to cook your buns.
I made my money
from super jiffy white pop corn flour
If you want marriage
I need a past prediction pre post nup
I'll supply the love
and you can supply all of the courage."

Spring is trying to arrive, despite the deep freeze we had a few days ago. The Mexican plum in my back yard is blooming, and the fragrance can be overpowering. I discussed this with a gardening friend recently who also has two Mexican plum trees in her yard. I commented on how strong the smell, and she said "yes, it's like the smell of cheap bars of bath soap!"
