Personal things shared with your friends

A friend has passed. RIP Mike Levine

imageOne of my first employees, and later one of my closest friends, Mike Levine, has passed away.  Mike Levine filled every room he entered with life and laughter.  He left behind a loving family, and many friends.

Like everyone else who ever had the privilege of knowing Mike, I will miss him greatly.

Somewhere in Heaven, a show has started, and our loss is their gain.

Rest in peace, my friend.

Still Alive, Sort of Kicking

I just realized I have not been posting.  Well, ok, I knew I was not posting, but I just realized how long it has been.  I’m alive, just busy.  Plus, trying to figure out how to make this site relevant. 

And apparently, I am the only person in this country worried about business problems due to the economy.  Or, so my VP says.  H/T Drudge.

One time, in band camp…

As a band geek, all I can say, is WOW.  This is the most impressive halftime show I have ever seen. H/T AJStrata for making me aware of this incredible performance by the Ohio State Marching Band.

Thank you for your service

Words do not express the depth of my emotion on this video. Watch it.

The Big Chill

I’ve been taking some time off blogging, but the new theory of the foundation of the universe being sort of a “big chill” instead of a “big bang” was too good to pass up.


Imagine the universe at the “beginning” was not a single point that exploded into a Big Band, but a pool of energy that expanded and froze during a Big Chill into three dimensions (four, including time).  Such a freezing would explain numerous problems within the current Big Bang theory, as well as offer ways to test the theory by looking for telltale cracks in the structure of the universe that would be produced in the process. 

Of course, that leaves open the question of where the universal condensate came from, and God only knows where that discussion will lead.


Back to blogging.  I still have not developed a steady readership, which is to be expected in a new blog.  So, I really wasn’t taking time off blogging lately, I was just prioritizing family and work, all the while building a tantalizing new idea for this blog and the upcoming election.  I fully expect to be back more actively blogging soon, with hopefully an idea in progress to help bring this blog to the next level. 

Places not to Blog from

imageLake Powell.  My reason for not blogging this past week or so.

Then again, I did have time to work on a major update, coming soon.



Best People to Blog with

imageOk, I admit that this post is more than a bit Rule 5 in nature.

As I was writing another post, it occurred to me that sometimes the best scenery is not just Best Places to Blog from, but also Best People to Blog with.  Sucks to be me.

I think I am going to make this a regular feature.  Maybe I can even get some link love from Stacy.

The Right Religion

So I’m reading up (again) on Obamacare, in between reading and posting comments on Flopping Aces, and I came across a debate between the Great One and Randy Barnett, as reviewed by Hugh Hewett.  Hugh had an interesting point regarding the reaction of the left to the allowance of exclusions for religious reasons:

Wonder when Citizens United For Separation of Church and State will get around to suing over section (d)(2) ---but of course would run the risk of pulling down the whole law if they win, so they won't because they wouldn't dare upset their allies on the left.

It occurs to me that perhaps I should start a new religion, the Right Religion, wherein we recognize there is a God, and he loves us and he wants us to be happy (Ben Franklin agrees with me so far).  In pursuit of that happiness, we require freedom from certain constraints, especially regarding the choices made in our personal health care.  Thus, allowing us to be excluded from portions of the Obamacare monstrosity.

(2) Religious exemptions
(A) Religious conscience exemption
Such term shall not include any individual for any month if such individual has in effect an exemption under section 1311(d)(4)(H) of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act which certifies that such individual is—
(i) a member of a recognized religious sect or division thereof which is described in section 1402 (g)(1), and
(ii) an adherent of established tenets or teachings of such sect or division as described in such section.

imageTaking this further (perhaps too far), maybe we should all think, really hard, about our Right Religion and related matters during any sexual encounters, a type of fantasizing as it were.  If it is part of our sex life, we can then declare the Right Religion to also be a sexual preference.  As such, criticism of our political and religious beliefs would also become discrimination regarding our sexual practices, and we could justifiably request all critics of our religion and our sexual practices to keep quiet so that they do not offend us or stomp on our rights to practice sex and religion without discrimination.

Or, perhaps I am fantasizing.
