gong bonging time again,,,a record setting daily peeper tally,,silent peeper contacts reported,halloween sure seems dead,soy isn't dog food, ,publix responds to demand as bakery sees soy products sales slump,2014 the year America ends and Reez and LeRoy find out how a bakers dozen does not allways a sweet treat make.
That is a bong a-gongin',,er,,uh,,a gong a-bongin' for all you folks coming through and racking up 5202 pg vws this past month!
Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!
,,is a woefully inadequate attempt by me to express my 'thanks' to you folks.
I am,,again,,awed,humbled and tickled plumb purply pink by the numbers of pg vws I have gotten.
Not just the bell ringers like the above and a record setting one day tally of 674 on the 27th of this month but the overall as well since this month brings the 'since inception' till now count (11:19p on Oct.31/10) total to 178,033.
And this,,,is the rest of the entry:
Coming in to post this,the pg vw counter was showing 133 for yesterday and a sofar of 5020 for Nov.
My wife has been running into quite a few folks who have read Wee!Gee! yet,,with the paucity of comments I have recieved I would wonder if she was saying so simply to make me feel good if it were NOT for the pg vws confirmation.
there is even A whole office full of Wee!Gee! readers ouT There in a 'CustomeR sErvice department' somewhere in Texas that she said say they are Waiting for each new part to be posted and have/do read my blog.
When she told me about the conversation,,I have to admit,,it made me feel pretty good.
(Thanks ya'll!You know who you are.If ya need a clue if it's you or not,,re-look for things that stand tall.)
And here's something rather neat,,to me at least,,she ran into a 'teachers assistant' from my grade school who actually recognized me from my FaceBook profile pic.!!
Around 40 years later she actually remembered me well enough to tell my wife about my character,personality and even some individual events that happened.
Sadly,,I don't recall a bunch of what she related to my wife and I am as yet unable to dredge up any kind of clear,or otherwise, memory of her.
(I'm sorry,ma'am.Give me time.Even though I come from what could be appropiately called the,,uh,,'Burn out generation'~smirk~,,more comes back to me the more I attempt to recall those days.And I am certain that if/when I see a pic of you,especially if it's in a class pic,,or some similar setting,,I am sure I will recall more.As for any possible future lack,,remember I was young and,,well,,please consider the above reference to 'my generation'.In the mean time,,let me say to you that I am grateful,honored and humbled that you,,and your friend 'J' enjoyed what I've wrote so far.I am glad something I wrote provided you with enjoyment and Thank You for your kind words.I sincerely appreciate them.)
My wife said that she told her she'd read all that's posted and really liked it.
And I got graded as well,,an overall A+ with an A- for spelling!
(Not bad for a Jr.High School (8th grade/3rd time around)drop out,eh?
But,hey,,,I did get my High School Diploma,,not a G.E.D. Yeah,,later during my state mandated sabbatical in my early 20's.I scored exceedingly high on it (only missed 2 math probs) and a slew of locator tests that pegged allmost all of my acadaemic skills well into college levels with some amazingly high.And they said sitting in those classes waiting for the masses to get up to speed and being BORED outta my skull because I'm not learning anything new was something I needed to do in order to become 'educated'.Apparently,,an education wasn't then,,and still isn't now,,about merit,skill or ability at absorbing and utilizing acquired knowledge.All they seemed to want then,,like now,,was five bucks a day from the fedgov for my butt being in a seat.Whether I was actively learning or not.(Remember tho,,behaviour modification/indoctrination does not have to be voluntary,,all ya need for it to work is 'exposure time'.The longer the better.And if the victim/target is partially somnalent from boredom,,well,,that's likely to help it work even better.)
If they would have split it with me,,maybe,,maybe,,I would have stayed.Like I said to the principal when he explained it to me,(on the last day I attended),,,"okay then,,if you get money for me being here and I'm not being taught anything that wasn't taught in the grades I've allready passed nor am I allowed to advance at the pace I'm capable of,,what do I get out of it other than misery?I'm not learning anything I didn't allready know,so,,where's my twofifty?"
Naturally,,he didn't appreciate my logic.And nothing I did or said had any effect on anything at all other than myself since,,as we know,,the way the American system works means a dropout simply justifies public schools asking for more money/political assistance for promoting the 'forced P.S. attendence' aspect which increases susceptability to said indoctrination at the loss of an otherwise fine mind that would know how to recognize actual freedom,resist oppression and defend their and their fellow countrymens liberties,dignity and honor if it hadn't been disconnected from the 'church' of it's mind and hi-jacked by officially authorized and locally disseminated AuthoriThinking that recognizes no power or authority above Gov.
Aww,geez,,I went off on a school rant.
Halloween came and went on my street with nary a pitter,patter or giggle heard.
We were puzzled,,then surprisingly,,felt saddened.
Sure,,it's not exactly an average suburban street that we live on now but compared to the place we have lived for allmost 10 years there are quite a few children in the surrounding areas so we figured some would come by.
Yet,,not one trickntreater came by.
Later it was discovered that for some (most of those near here anyway),,it seems that paying to for them and their kids to go to Haunted Houses and out to eat has replaced dressing up like scary things and wandering the streets after dark emptily threatening folks with tricks if they don't get good treats.
Don't get me wrong,,as long as the kids have a good time,,I suppose it's all good.
It just makes me wonder,,
Has Halloween gone the way of Christmas,Easter and even Thanksgiving and become just another day of homage for the Gods of Commerce?
Is it no longer fashionably suitable or 'pc' for a 'Americas people' to enjoy something simple and relatively cheap or free like children mock threatening or begging to get sweets from you and the neighbors that live around you?
Is cultivating and maintaining a familiarity with one's immediate neighborhood and it's inhabitants being substituted by money spending trips into flowing seas of strangers as the cultural norm in America?
If so,,does (and/or can) it make a free nations peoples lives better,,or worse?
I can say that I know it made my street seem joyless and unalive.
Now,,for a soy related segment before I get to the good stuff and sign off.
We have confirmation that soy is not even good for dog food.
Since I had noticed some symptoms similar to mine in my dogs (males had mushy muscle tone,all three were stiff,lethargic and too easily hurt along with other things now identifiable as symptoms) we had got them off dog food (Gravy Train+other) with soy in it yet a skin condition that our larger male had been being bothered by continued to worsen.
After a local vet did a test that confirmed the problem as soy consumption he 'prescribed' a particular fish protein based dog food that I presume should rebalance his system.
After about a month or so,,it seems to be improving.It's for sure they all seem to be in better spirits,becoming more active and are firming up.
The Publix that I've spoke of has been fairly responsive to the ever increasing local demand for products without soy.I suppose that since requests and complaints went up and the bakerys bread and pastries with soy sales went down that corporate had to set the store handlers straight regarding how to be responsive to the 'publix' desires.
After all,,those big boys know that a super market depends on return customers so if it don't have what folks want,,they won't spend their money in that store.
That's the 'power of the people' hitting them 'where it hurts'.
It's capable of knock out blows to corporate interest.
Unless someone makes it a LAW that you have to buy certain products or services under threat of punishment via fines and more.But that won't happen in America,,untill 2014 when the LAW written into Obamacare kicks in.THEN,,the insurance and medical industry will be able to pummel 'we the people' into miserable submission at will since the ref (Gov) will support what amounts to Govs newest branch and not us in order to keep revenue flowing into their pets pockets and maintain as much control over the minds and bodies of their 'subjects' that they can just as governments all down through history have eventually perverted themselves into attempting.In this case it will be the 'official death of AMERICA" as far as I am concerned.
If that happens,,,it could be said that we will then become denominated (assigned a monetary value) and live as prey (that which is hunted or raised to be fed off of or consumed) waiting to be delivered up by those who care for us yet are ignorantly thinking they are doing a 'good work'(doing God a service or even in Gods,Christs,Yahavehs,Jehovahs,Allahs or some other's name) that will benefit us but will only help to subjugate,oppress and destroy the lives,liberties and freedoms of all.
Gee,,I keep revving up into a rant!But at least I ain't morosely depressed to the point of thinking that maybe I should get on something like Cymbalta.I am sooo glad I got off soy.
Okay,,so how does a bakers dozen NOT add up to a sweet treat?
When the main ingredient is pestilence permeated bone.
Oh,,gross,yuck and ewwwww!
What am I talking about?
Why,,the good stuff of course.
LeRoy provides extra material for Reez to make Schlomo's chains with then breaks out a pair of wamma-jammas to gear him and Reez up for 6 Skull and Bone Brethren only to find out they face a bakers dozen instead.
(I put it up yesterday but ran a little late on the blog entry announcing it.)
Now,,in closing,,I have to reiterate how awed,humbled,very pleased and grateful that you folks have pushed the pg vw counter solidly over the 5000 mark in October!
Thank you all very much.I truly appreciate it.
I am allready working on part 37,,so,,
Ya'll come back now,y'hear?!?

peeper numbers drop,pineapples,orchids,a variegated cactus,zombie plants,Mr.Mycelium's magical mushroom block,retorting Reg Henry rhetoric and details on Reez's last day living.
I thank you all for clicking in.
This past month of September the pg vws dropped into the 3000's for the first time in a long while yet ended in the low 4000's.
Coming in the counter was showing 120 for yesterday and 4284 sofars.
I don't know what it may mean,,or if it even means anything at all but the lowest numbers I have had in a very long time was 28 on the 11th,4 on the 12th,5 on the 13th and 41 on the 14th.Yet on the 15th they were back up to the usual daily count of around one hundred or so and thankfully,,they have been like that everyday since.
(personally,,after doing a goog news search of those dates,,I think it may indicate I have more than a few sports fans and tea partiers coming thru here.)
I'm pretty sure I mentioned having brought two of the four pineapple plants I had along to this place.I left the two big girls,,Arnie and Mama Francis-Jeanne behind (I heard they each got a new owner that intend to take care of them.) and kept Suki and the one grown from her first apple.Suki died back but has now kicked of either a new head or a sucker and the other one,,Gracie,,is growing well alltho they are both hollering for more root space.I have a couple of big pots to put them in but I need to get some good soil for them first.
We also had left behind an odd looking orchid plant.Amazingly,,not long after it turned warmer,,totally out of the blue,,we were given one of the exact same type.Along with an odd looking spineless cactus. Here's a pic of one pretty much just like it :http://www.cactus-art.biz/schede/EUPHORBIA/Euphorbia_lactea/Euphorbia_lactea_cristata/Euphorbia_lactea_cristata.htm(If you want to see how weird cacti can look,,click around the sites photo gallery : http://www.cactus-art.biz/gallery/Photo_gallery_index.htm
I looked for an online pic similar to the orchid but there are just too many to sort through without knowing it's particular name.It looks like green sticks somewhat like grass or bamboo.I know,that don't make no sense but it does.
There are two types,,one that grows like an air plant and one that doesn't.I suppose this ones the air plant variety because when we got the first one,,I figured it was dead.The green never left and eventually there were roots and blooms popping out from sections.
It's weird looking but has beautiful delicate flowers.
Speaking of weird dead looking plants,,let me tell you about a plant I call 'zombie'.Our new neighbor has a plant in her front yard that she apparently wanted to eradicate.She had someone tear it out and they threw it in back of her garage which is adjacent to our backyard.We seen it there and just thought it was a dead branch but after a while we were amazed when we noticed leaves sprouting off the ends.
After observing it grow for a few weeks without even being so much as stuck in the ground let alone having any root system we took it and snapped off the various tips exhibiting the growth and potted them up.
Today we have about a dozen healthy looking plants.And our neighbor is going to be surprised when she comes down for the annual snow bird migration to find out the plant she got rid of is alive,well and growing like a weed in her front yard.
Now,,for a magic mushroom block.Not that I like mushrooms at all but I ran across something I thought was a pretty neat idea for folks who do like shrooms and would like to grow some for themselves.
Oh yeah,,and this gets you 'shiitake' mushrooms at that.
Check it out,,allow me to introduce you to Mr. Mycelium & the Mushrooms :
~A Shiitake block is made from hardwood sawdust and chips mixed with bran for mushroom nutrition. The mixture is bagged, sterilized and then inoculated with the Shiitake mushroom spawn. It is then incubated for over a month and made ready to fruit. After it soaks in water without any chlorine in it for 8-12 hours mushrooms will emerge in about 6-9 days . The block needs to be misted 3-4 times a day to keep it moist and in a cool environment of 62-68 degrees. We provide a bag to make a humidity tent with instructions on how to use it.
Once all the mushrooms have been picked you let the block rest and start the whole process over again for the 2nd and 3rd flushes. ~
I was surfing the web the other day trolling for news stories when I ran across a fella featured on scrippsnews.com.
His name is Reg Henry and I was flabbergasted,,sort of,,when I read what he apparently gets paid for.
Basically,,,the stuff he spews reminds me of pkpost/psygon's psychogandic drivel yet with more subtilty since he doesn't blatantly defend the psychotic murderers like that character did.
Anyways,,I responded to one of his posts on site.That would be this one :
And here is one which I responded to like I would have to one of those pkposts back on the excite politics discussion board.It made for a largish piece so I didn't post it at scrippsnews as a 'comment' to Henry's article but instead put it over at The Staks.
This is Henrys scrippsnews article:
And this is my response.:
Eventually,,maybe,,I will post a 'twitter-like' reply in that pieces comment section that will point to my response unless someone else goes and points it out before I do.
And to close,,,a dead mans head fills a live mans head to fill the live one in regarding the last day the sun had licked his skin.A tale of meeting back up with Bright Raven gets capped with the tragedy of how an unpayable blood debt became owed.
Even given that he had a macabre and weighty job that he was willing and glad to do Reezes last day alive was a pleasent one.
He had a nice drive through a beautiful land and when he had to get a flat tire fixed he ran into a well liked old friend who happily bought him a nice,ice cold beer.
Yes,,it was nice,,and definately not filled with any dread,,untill he heard tell that a gruesome gang was around and figured out he was responsible for them showing up.
Wee!Gee! part 35
With that,,I will say,,again,,that,,I apologize for not posting more more often.
Yet,,now,,since I am feeling much more able,capable,,,and willing,,to do more now that I am off the soy,,I do believe I will be producing more.
If I can sit still long enuff that is.
So,,as usual,,I will say,,if'n ya like,,or even if'n ya loathe,,what I post,,
Ya'll come back now,,y'hear?!?

9-11-10 Another set of towers crumble
Topic: Opposing Terror
9-11-10 Another set of towers crumble
I feel like 9-11-01 just happened all over again.
BO & Co all came out of the wood work to ask Jones to not provoke the percentage of Islamists in our and other countries who advocate violence,murder and mayhem when they get their feelings hurt or their idols are damaged or someone doesn't 'submit' to the politics of ISLAM or become a Muslim,,,YET,,,not once have I heard any of those same folks asking RAUF to NOT build an Islamic Center at Ground Zero in a desire to NOT provoke the peace loving folks in THIS COUNTRY.
IOW,,,as far as I am concerned,,it's equal to Islam just killing those folks all over again with the implied approval of Obama,Biden,Betrayus,Clinton and the Republicans,Christians,Catholic and Jews,celebrities,pundits,etc.etc.etc.
(It's like they are all running down a wide highway hollering Islam!Islam!,,er,,Peace!Peace! while those who paved the road are lopping the heads off those who don't want to run with the herd.)
Let's look at the logic being displayed over this mess.
(Keep in mind,,even BO insisted publicly that 'words' must mean something,'laws' must be obeyed and 'violations' must be punished. http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2009/04/05-2
I'll start with my own comments above lest someone feel I may be slanting something.
I juxtaposed the desire of BO & Co to NOT provoke the percentage of Islamic RELIGOUS FOLKS IN FORIGN COUNTRIES and those who champion Sharia dominance,advocate violence,murder and mayhem when they get their feelings hurt or their idols are damaged WITH their LACK of desire to NOT provke the NON Islamists in America whose feelings are hurt by the murders and acts of war committed against innocent people (civilians not military personel).
Logically speaking,,,what does that display if NOT a clear and obvious priority consisting of 'satisfying' forign interests (whose 'members of state' threaten violence in retaliation) without equal consideration being shown to the domestic interests of this nations 'members of state' who 'do not' threaten to retaliate violently?
Does not 'compassion' demand one chose to champion the non violent and revile the murderous?
Does not JUSTICE & Sound Ethics demand a nations leaders look out for and protect the interests (which includes morale) of the nation they lead?
Would not 'fairness' expect those folks to at least ask that the Islamic Center?Mosque not be built in such a sensitive place as one involving loss of human life with as much 'enthusiasm' as was displayed to a fella who wanted to burn some books to protest a theocratic agenda?
Are we here in the US undeserving of being equally shown the compassionate understanding which our leaders and public heads display toward folks and political-religious entities which are clearly okay with violence being committed ON US over such a thing as 'religious icon desecration' that our very own National Endowement for the Arts pays out grants for?
Are we NOT under a form of 'constructive compliance' to Sharia if those laws are treated with more respect than our own by our very own leaders?
Are we of such low worth to our CiC,,the POTUS,,that it appears that he and his crew do not care if we suffer from intolerant minded,religiously bigoted,politically prejudiced folks that hide murderous political agendas behind a facade of religion that terrifies understanding non adherents night and day?
If that's NOT the case,,then why are THEY being shown more respect,compassion and consideration by him and his than their FELLOW AMERICANS get?
As for some saying that 'all Muslims' do not advocate the 'threats of violence'.
Which one's are speaking out loudly and proudly against their fellow muslims acting like psychopathic murderers?
Why do the few that may,,not get more 'media exposure' by US news corporations?
Why won't they protest publicly against such in their own countries or even in a place as tolerant and peaceful as America is where they can be protected from harm by our 'Law enforcement' and even military might?
Now,,for the 'justification' most used against that pastor burning those books.
It will make Muslims around the world want to kill Americans.
The only response possible to anyone that is aware of history spanning a least the past few decades,not actively compatriot with Islam or 'overly indoctrinated by party-pup PC rhetoric',honest minded,at least half as smart as a doorknob and reasonably sane could give is,,,"What doesn't make Muslims world wide want to kill Americans or any non Muslims for that matter?"
(You want to see what I mean?check it out,,now,,NOT building the Islamic Center or it not being allowed to be built due to some mundane reason such as 'building codes' would result in Muslims wanting to commit violence as surely as burning korans would:
~The imam of the mosque conceded Wednesday he would have changed sites if he knew how controversial it would become - but he now believes a switch would anger the radical Muslim world.
"If we don't do this right, anger will explode in the Muslim world," said Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf on CNN's "Larry King Live."
"It could become something very dangerous indeed."~
(Do you or don't you think that man was referring to violence equal to,or greater than,the violence threatened in retaliation for burning korans?Which do you believe is truthful,,the statement 'he wouldn't have placed it there if he had known' or the inference that he did NOT know it would result in controversy or,,the statement NOT doing so is dangerous.Do you think maybe not picking that location was dangerous to Rauf,personally?Or do you think it's likely he is moving in accordance with an agenda shared by his political-religious compatriots?)
And considering Rauf is someone advocating instituting Sharia Law in the U.S. (which constitutes 'rejection' of or promotes supremecy over U.S. Soverignty) simply demanding that someone not excercise their right to freedom of expression constitutes a flagrant disrespect and rejection of U.S. laws,what reasons other than asserting dominance over (psychologically&symbolically at the very least) and/or provoking negative reactions (as in provoking to violence or as in 'terrorizing them') from the local cultures members could there be??
It is un Christian or unBiblical.
So is Islam.
(to whit:The prescription given in The New Testament,,which COMPLETED the 'old testament,,was to treat others as you would like to be treated.I am a follower of Yeshua and I would rather those folks burnt Bibles if they opposed America or wanted their Islamic center in a certain 'sensitive' spot as opposed to murdering folks.Which would you prefer?)
It's sends the wrong message.
What message should be sent,,"We the people of diverse religious and political persuasions that live in the United States submit to the religious/political laws of Sharia so we will not face threat of or see commision of violence or death?"
(That IS unconstitutional even if BO wants us to.And is what comes from losing/surrendering in a war between nations.And THAT wouldn't even stop such,IMHsmellyO.)
That's not how Americans act.
Which Americans?Muslim Americans?Kenyan Americans?Irish Americans?Christian Americans?Anti-Americans?DANG-DInGIE Americans?Or do you mean Americans who apply for and get NEA grants to desecrate religious icons of flavors other than Islamic?
That's not what America stands for.
(This one came from a constitutional lawyer,,can ya guess who?)
If America does NOT stand for 'freedom of expression' then what's the first amendment about?
To finish this:
I,,as a human being who is an American Citizen,,and a non main stream Christian,,am extremely dissapointed,dismayed,astounded and hurt beyond compare by what I have witnessed over the last few days.
Another set of towers have been destroyed.
The ideas of Freedom of Speech and that our elected officials are loyaly dedicated to protecting America,it's constitution,laws and it's people's freedoms have been crumbled into rubble.
What's gonna happen on next 9/11?
Will that Islamic Center explode and thousands of more folks get murdered so a religious-political system can garner more power or will that be un-needed by then here in what was called one of the biggest Islamic nations on Earth by BO whom some want to establish a new Caliphate like what was formed in old time Cordoba? :
www.cbsnews.com/8301-503543_162-5060185-503543.html : ~Obama: U.S. One of World's Biggest Muslim Nations - World Watch ...Jun 3, 2009 ... Obama: U.S. One of World's Biggest Muslim Nations ... to deliver what has become a much-anticipated speech, Obama is practicing the kind of ...~
- : - http://www.nation.com.pk/pakistan-news-newspaper-daily-english-online/Islamabad/02-Sep-2010/Minister-wants-Obama-to-become-AmeerulMomineen -
~Minister wants Obama to become Ameer-ul-Momineen
Published: September 02, 2010
ISLAMABAD In a development that could be duly termed as one and only of its kind, an incumbent Government’s Minister has urged US President Barrack Obama to offer Eid prayers at Ground Zero Mosque and become Ameer-ul-Momineen of Muslim Ummah.
Minister of State for Industries and former member Pakistan Ideological Council Ayatullah Durrani called TheNation on Wednesday to register his demand made to President Obama.
The coming Eid would expectedly be observed on 9/11, this a golden opportunity for President Obama to offer Eid prayers at Ground Zero and become Amir-ul-Momineen or Caliph of Muslims. In this way, all the problems of Muslim World would be solved,he thought.
Durrani argued that Muslim World was in dire need of a Caliph and the distinguished slot of Caliphate would earn President Obama the exemplary titles of what he termed, Mullah Barrack Hussain Obama” or Allama Obama. The time is approaching fast. Barrack Hussain Obama must act now. This is a golden opportunity, Muslims badly need it,he added, saying that the elevation of President Obama to Muslim’s Caliphate would be the key to success.~
That makes this seem much more accurate:
I do not say I would or would not burn a Koran or any other religions material as a form of protest against a religion or political system.
I am saying that under the laws of the U.S. it is legal to express myself that way,,or dispose of such in that way if the situation demands or calls for it,,or if I simply want to as long as I rightfully and legally own it and that I will defend any human who wishes do do such whether our current or future government says it's okay or not.
I am also saying I will defend any human right to belong to any religion he or she so chooses,,and to leave it at the slightest whim,whether our current or future government says it's okay or not..
As well as,,
I will oppose any and all religions that insist one join or be submissive to it under penalty of taxation,tribute,exile,violence or death,whether our current or future government says it's okay or not.
Doing so IS what America's about.
To do anything else WOULD be Un-American.
And I expect no less from BO & Co and all other fellow freedom loving Americans,whether our current or future government says it's okay or not.
Here's a thought,,If a burnt book is worth killing over,,is it worth NOT killing to keep a book from being burnt?
Start with a number equal to the number of lives lost on 9-11-01 and add one for every life lost in the name of Allah since then.
How about this,,starting tomorrow,for every human a Muslim murders in the name of Allah,,,a Koran is burnt?
Does anyone think that would get them to stop acting like psychopathic murderers?

if peeps weren't silent,would they be as sweet?,wee!gee! vs poisoned watermelon,publix pushing soy?,,and,,,part 34 fell into place.
Logging into post this my pg vw counter was showing 138 for yesterday and 4482 sofar this month.
I extend many,many,many thanx to those who have been pushing my pg vw count numbers up.
As a matter of fact,,since my last entry on 8/19 I seen a new high for that month of 4890 on the 22nd and even started this month off with 4487 showing.
Thank you all very much!!!
I have to say,,again,,and again,,I am really thankful for the visits yet majorly puzzled by the lack of feedback I have garnered.
I have been using the internet for over a decade and in that time I have visited many sites as banal as mine,,and way worse even,,that get at least some sort of commentary on occasion.
Yes,,I have previously concluded that the pg vws are a suitable substitute for actual comments,,and those numbers are nothing I am going to denigrate nor cast aspersions at because they are sweet to me,,so,,,bemusedly,,I'll just repost some links to ways to contact me or comment on what I write or post.
first off,,here's a group of boards one could use:
here's a form mailer:
and then there is that 'text link' at the bottom of this blog entry that reads -> Post comment
allrighty then.moving on.
In my last post I said I was working on part 34 of Wee!Gee!.
Well,,I was,,and while struggling to get back in the swing and get it rolling again,,,along comes some nice good looking,juicy,,yet not very sweet with a tang of 'something off' watermelon that I ate,,not greedily,,but freely,,that my wife picked up at a fruitstand up in Wabbaso on the west side of US#1 that definitely slowed part 34 way down.
Over the course of two day I ate a not unreasonable amount (I have learned in the past I do like watermelon a little too much for my own good so I keep that in mind),,even so,,,by the third day,,I wound up feeling like the mold had invaded me again,,minus the puking.
I was on the verge of actually wanting to go to the hospital.If it had stayed as intense as it was at first just a little bit longer,,I would have.
After I had suffered through (and was getting better from) a few days of intense intestinal pain that I noticed actually had less gas associated with it as usually accompanies my watermelon discomforts a guy my wife works with came down with the same symptoms after cracking open the watermelon he had gotten from the same place as my wife got ours.
He called his doctor and got a 'sameday' appointment so when he went he took some of the watermelon in his lunch with him which his doctor had tested.
Yep,,now I have a clue as to how a roach hit by Raid might feel.
The story goes that the melons came from a farm in Immokolee not long after we had a bunch of rain.
I say this so I can point out that watermelons can suck in 'water' through the spot where the vine attaches for a while after picking.
IOW,,they,,like other fruits and vegetables,,,don't actually die as soon as they are plucked,picked or cut.
Temperature changes can contribute to such as well.
So,,,if..per se,,one picked a crop that had been 'sprayed' according to schedule a tad early due to trying to beat the rains,,and did not get it out of the field before said rains puddled the 'fresh' pesticide up enough to leave the fresh picked/cut vines and holes under 'tainted' water,,then one could wind up with 'poisoned watermelon'.
Personally,,I just hope this kind of thing doesn't help give BO & Co. more justification for expanding gov control deeper into the food biz.
(As if they really need to say anything other than 'it's for your own good' to get the average sheeple to bleat,,'Oh,,thank you sirs,,another law.Please,,may we have another?'and get one more 'golden chain' looped around our necks.)
On another local note,,
In our search for soy-less products we had found that the bakery in Publix on Oslo and US#1 made a soy free Chicago Style Italian bread loaf and offered to make other breads without it as well.
Well,,now,,for no apparent reason except,,perhaps,,purposeful lowering of customer satisfaction levels,,the Chicago style has soy in it and they refuse to bake anything they do not get in a premade/frozen form.
Amazingly,,a 'manager' even told my wife to simply shop at a local bakery.
Needless to say,,we will most likely drive the extra distance to shop at the Publix on 43rd and Oslo.Unless,,of course,,they turn into a 'soy pusher' too.
I'll let you know.
Oh,,,yeah,,,like I said above,,that poisened melon slowed part 34 down,,but,,,it didn't stop it.
Yet,,the stars suddenly coming out definitely gave the deputy pause.
Here's Wee!Gee! prt34:
I hope someone enjoys it,,,and yet,,,even if'n ya don't,,,there it is so,,
Ya'll come back now,y'hear?!?

life without soy and a rumour about Wee!Gee!prt 34.
I can not apologise enuff to those looking for more Wee!Gee! and can not express my thanks enough to those who have kept my pg vw count cranking along,I had 142 showing for yesterday when I came on and 4785 sofar for this month with a high for August of 4852 on the 15th.
Life without soy,,,
Has become amazing.
I had become convinced that the mold incident had messed me up so bad I wasn't going to do anything except get worse and weaker until I died.
My muscles have become firmer and my fat is shrinking,,as in,,I am losing fat not weight.I seem to have broadened a bit across my chest and shoulders.I can actually feel my muscles from the inside again.My posture and stance has improved.My bones feel harder.(things don't hurt me as much as they have been the past few years)My energy levels have increased dramatically.I get way less head rushes from bending over or squatting(I repaired some pipes from a 'standing while bent from the waist down into a shallow hole' position without even ONE!).I haven't experienced 'full chest' feelings or heart palpations in about 6 weeks.My breathing seems improved.My wife and others have commented on my color,eye clarity and overall appearence as being improved.I am more likely to go ahead and do something rather than come up with reasons not to.
My cravings for candy have dropped to virtually nil.(That could actually be seen as good thing tho' since my favs Reeses PB Cups & 3 Musketeers (and all others as far as I know) contain soy products.Just like Jif PB,Chicken of the Sea chunk light tuna packed in water,Dandee Bread,Cheetos and even Nutella does.It is really astounding how many common products have soy ingredients.)
I ache way less.As in,,my bones don't constantly feel like I've been beat repeatedly by an 'owie stick' and my muscles don't feel like I weigh twice my weight all the time.
While I do still experience pain and discomfort which I still believe is most likely left over from the mold event since it is very akin to the hot electric icey shooting - creeping - stabbing - bursting - clawing - crawling explosions that come on (and that stick around on occasion) I was feeling at that time they are way less intense and way less frequent.My food tastes better.
I feel like I am thinking more clearly,quicker and in a less emotionally reactive fashion.My thoughts seem to be tending more to the pragmatic,practical and proactive than they have been.Problems don't seem so 'problematic' lately.I am more likely to go ahead and do something rather than come up with reasons not to.
I am more enthusiastic.I am less pessimistic.I don't have crushing waves of morose and anguished thoughts flood my mind at odd times.I don't seem to fit the symptoms listed in all those depression medication adverts anymore.(Like Cymbalta for instance)I laugh a bit more and a little quicker.I am more likely to go ahead and do something rather than come up with reasons not to.
I could go on.
All in all,,,my quality of life (LIVING) has improved even if there is now a feeling of utter revulsion over what is happening to folks who think they are getting healthy,good (or not so bad) for them products that are,,IMHsmellyO,,equal to 'Amdro for humans' and are producing what amounts to a famine with the appearence of plenty.
Then of course,,there is a very real reason for feeling a heavy sadness and that is that there is no rational reason to believe that 'The Powers That Be' are not aware of this and many rational reasons to conclude that the detrimental effects of soy consumption that would make and keep folks thinking they are needful of or dependent on 'health care=insurance' are not only known but desired by 'TPTB'.
Here is some more info on soy I found online that perhaps deserves consideration:
This first one is chock full of info ranging from the history of soy to what in it is bad and why to the pros and cons of soy in infant diets.With cited references ta boot.I found it an interesting read.
Here's another one that exposes what could either be a way of 'gentling' a population segment or a slow yield pogrom yet is undeniably evidence of cruel and unusual punishment:
Initially I had thought it was a male problem,,,I have since found out different.
Here's one focusing on the effect on one women:
Here's a summary of effects on women and children:
Here's one with a video and a lotta links:
I'll throw this one in for good measure since it illustrates the ways labels can easily do the consumer a dis-service:
Here's one that (among other things) lays out the reasons why a once minor crop that was listed in the 1913 US Department of Agriculture (USDA) handbook not as a food but as an industrial product, now covers 72 million acres of American farmland. Much of which will be used to feed chickens, turkeys, pigs, cows and salmon. Another large fraction will be squeezed to produce oil for margarine, shortenings and salad dressings.
Here's one more that includes a report about an impending atrocious act of overgrown power mongering that would undoubtedly eventually lead to heinous abuses on human dignity and flat out prohibition on self reliance from behind a facade of 'protecting folks'.:
this is more on that:
okay,,'nuf 'sed 'bout dat fer now.
Here's what some folks may have been hoping to hear:
Since I have recently gotten another old computer up & running that allows me to use programs in it and go on line,,I have officially started writing the second half of Wee!Gee!
Part 34 has been started and yes,,I have to admit,,it's taking a bit of effort to get back into since I've been on 'hiatus' since last year along with having a different setup to work in now it but itsa starting to roll,ya'll!
No,,it's not posted yet but I'm going to go work on it now so,,,
Ya'll come back now,y'hear?!?

Peekers,,,not squeekers,,keep coming,Soy?Soy!Oy!,,Yes,,I'm paranoid,,,but that don't mean no one's out to get me,,you or US!Attention #10 and welcome aboard to my friend Vinnie.
Thank you all very much!!
Coming in to post my pg vw counter was showing 112 for yesterday and a so far hi of 4596.
Last months hi tally was 4750 with April topping out with 4759.So far for this month I have a hi of 4802 showing allready.
I am so amazed and humbled and yes,,,pleased,,when I look at my pg vw counts.
Now,,I know that in the world at large the numbers are insignificant,,but to me,,for what I have posted,,having a consistant monthly hi-tally in the mid 4000's range is just awesome!
And it is creeping higher.Even tho',,,,from the looks of it,,I guess I'm down to one post a month.~sigh~
And no new Wee!Gee! parts either.~sigh~
I am trying what I can to better my ability to continue writing and posting without frustrating myself into becoming a writhing mass of quivering flesh on the floor by FTP'ing via dial up.(Is there a friendly PC Doc in the house?)
I suppose I could keep writing it in my other pc (like 'beneath') and wait to post it but I seem to have had a pattern/rhythym going that worked really well which definately helped develope the flavor of the tale.And I like the whole 'Rough Manuscripts' concept as well so,,well,,I'll try since I do feel a bit more full of myself since I reduced more soy out of my diet.
Take it how ever you may wish to but I for one do not want exessive amounts of soy going into my body.
Which means I have to be actively aware of what's in the food I eat since it has become a too common cost reducing alternative to many substances in foods that used to not have soy in them.
But,,soy,,what's wrong with soy?
Well,,probably nothing unless you are a male.
Here,,I put this page together Soy?Soy!Oy! -( http://royharbin.tripod.com/id65.html ).It has info and links that deals with the why's and why nots (and here is a set of search results for a site that my sister turned me onto just recently that I will go through later and add stuff from to that compilation I have up:
If that link results in you just getting to the front page,,simply scroll down a bit and look to the right for a search box and type in soy,,it will return what I tried to link to.)
I know,,I know,,supposedly,,,it's healthy food and good for ya.
At least,,that's what we are told by those who claim to know what's best for us.
You know,,the very same one's who also claim or act as tho,,,genetically modifying food crops is not detrimental in the least,,,,that governments know better than those they govern,,,that government has a right to force what amounts to a head tax on all legal American Citizens,,that more government control/oversight is compatable with the spirit and words of our U.S. Constitution,,that just saying stuff equates with accomplishing something,,that the major enemies of the nation,,and the world,,is the very same White American capitalistic corporations who got punished by being given tax-payers money to escape their debts while being told they were unethical corporations not immoral criminal persons,,,all while the profits keep flowing for those big boys to give away to their pocketed pals for advertising revenue in order to keep the kayfabe(charade/act) going that makes them look altruistic and genuinely concerned for the well being and welfare of their 'voters',supporters and customers.
Who fits that set of criteria?
And when did the memo go out saying we could trust these folks?,,'cuz I musta missed it.
Honestly,though,,what is wrong with those folks?
Seriously,,,since I can't believe they are all as moronic or incompetent as they appear to be,,it's as if there must be something to at least one or five of the myriad of conspiracy theories floating around out there.
After all,,,just think about it.
Out of all the theories concerning our government (with or with out world wide,alien or even demon cohorts) being involved in some kind of plan to do some kind of thing which discounts the individual to the point that it resembles a forced &/or surreptitious restructuring of our (or all) societies to fit into and/or under some all encompassing plan of action which results in the leaders garnering power,profit and pleasure at the expense of life,liberty and freedom for the 'people',,,
90% are totally groundless at best or insanely imaginary at worst.
5% are complex misunderstandings.
3% are the result of political or personal machinations against opponents or rivals in the form of slander or even attempted framings.
1% are true yet do not follow the above criteria close enuff to qualify as a bad thing.
.5% are true but have no way of succeeding.
.5% must be true and while most often being presented sunny side up or downplayed and dismissed as crazy conspiricy nuttyness are,,at least occasionally,,reported on.
Or even less than .5%,,without ever being reported on in a way that validates any proposed theory with any widespread notorioty.Yet,,not 0%,,after all,,remember how many there are and that 'not 0%' should constitue at least one 'theory' being so exceeding close to an actual factual reality that IF it did gain widespread attention folks would freak slap the fu,,er,,fudge out.
Now,,consider the most likely end goal of any such 'conspiracy'(not the publicly disseminated ones,,consider the one's the official ones seem to be designed to distract folks away from).Would it NOT,,at the heart of the means of it,,essentially be,,,Control of the worlds resources (from necessities to political elements) by 'corporate commitee' ran,,at first,,by a titular head and self serving members which would most probally turn into a despot with a group of sycophantic glad handers kowtowing to get favors.And,,,how it would only take ONE such scheme succeeding to make life crappy for all of us non-elite folks.
Of course,,IMHsmellyO,,here's the real kick in the teeth,,,it's probally an 'open secret' of the sort which is so much a part of the fabric of the most common citizens environmental background that they simply can't recognize it much less understand that anything is wrong with it.
(have you ever tried to explain what you see to a person whose never seen or explain colors to the color blind or that one set of Hitlers 'Aryan' Nation allies are still very actively attempting to achieve at least one of the same ends?)
Don't forget how the 'hi-level' elite would NOT be directly adversely affected by social transformation,upheaval or even miltary conflagration with the many layers of insulating security (and gov continuance plans which are well known) they have so the common sense refutation of,,they would be as afraid of such as we would,,simply don't fly.
Am I paranoid?
Yes,,I am as paranoid as a primate in an area filled with visible and invisible carnivorous predators and who lives in a troupe which contains cannabalistic members should be.
IOW,,Of course I am.It's a very useful survival trait.
Have ya never noticed how with everything from small tasty critters to folks betrayed in relationships to folks investing money on wall street to voters being led around on main street that it's the non paranoid who are most likely to wind up getting got?
Is it paranoia if the cautious/fearful/distrustful reaction is based on past occurances?
That would be 'learning' from past lessons wouldn't it?
Yep,,,it sure would.
Here's a lesson that illustrates a people striving to be free from an over grown government:
Heck,,here's a link to a printer friendly page,,print it out,,show it to your offline friends,family,neighbors and enemies:
Go re-read it,,or perhaps actually read it for the first time,,and pay close attention to the kinds of things King G. was doing which caused all the ruckus and compare those acts with contemporary acts of political prestidigitations commited by our oh so noble and altruistic constitutional rights facilitators.
I'd rather end this on a different note than that,so,,,
One day about a week or so ago,,while sitting in my van in a local shopping markets parking lot waiting for my wife to shop,,a fella in a nice looking car pulled up into the parking space facing mine.
That gave opportunity for me to get a good look at a card hanging from his rearview.
It looked like an ID card for a sports org of some sort from a western state that had the guys name and picture on it along with a big jersey number 47.
A bit of a reciprical self promotion plan formulated in my mind.
When the guy came back out,,I gestured the question,,'Is that you on that card?" to him to which he responded in the affirmative.So,,I hopped out with a pen and pad ready to get my first celebrity autograph.
Look,,I have met more than a couple of celebrities of various types and assorted levels of fame but I had never felt an urge to get nor had a use for getting an autograph from any of them.(I simply treated them like any one else.They seemed relieved and appreciative of that.)
But this was different.
Essentially,,I talked to him (he seemed really nice) a few minutes and left with an autograph and a handshake deal to be each others fans.
He would read Wee!Gee!,,,and turn other interested (or totally bored) parties onto it like perhaps during training or traveling when chillin' (and being bored) and readin' is a common activity and I would follow his career and talk about him on my blog on occasion.
One problem though,,.I hopped online and ran searches for his name with the org name & number on the card and couldn't find anything that fully matched that or the number he put under his signature which was #10.
Well,,okay,,two problems,,,since I am not a football fan of any sort and don't really know any who could help me find out more on him with the info I have.
After you read this and IF you still feel like following through with our little verbal agreement,,,please notify me with your current status info as regards team and etcetera. so I can introduce you to my few,,yet hugely appreciated by me readers,,and start posting updates on your career activities.
I recently ran into a friend that I've known since way-way back in my teen days whom I haven't seen in about 15 years.
He is one of the few folks I know in non cyber space who I am positive has visited my pages here.(I guided him to it over the phone just yesterday and he literally read to me from it.)
I pray God makes and keeps you happy,healthy and whole in body,heart,mind,spirit and soul.
I am very glad I ran back into you and tickled that you are going to read around my site.
I hope you enjoy at least some of what I've put up.
Of course,,whether you do or not,,since you did read what I typed I'll say to you like I say to anyone who reads these undoubtedly inane seeming blatherings of mine (or the much better stuff like Wee!Gee!),,,thanx fer visitin' and,,,
Ya'll come back now,y'hear?!?

Roy's Twisted Root: A Tasty delight
a new taste,,roy's twisted rootbeer.
I came up with this about 3 weeks after moving in to our current location.
A few folks that have tried it said they liked it pretty well so I figured I would share it with those that come through here.
(If you wanted to,,you could call it a form of thank you to the percentage of peepers coming through that enjoy a drink or two now and again.or not.either way,,when I logged in the pg vw counter was showing 130 for yesterday and 4530 sofar this month so some thanks are due someone.IOW:Thanks ya'll!!!)
The basic mix concept I came up with is A&W Rootbeer with a flavored white liquor such as Seagrams Rasberry Gin or Smirnoffs Twisted Strawberry (triple distilled).
I personally mix it light and neat (with refridgerated fixin's of course) but a person could double pump the jigger and drop rocks in it if they chose.
This makes for a tasty alcoholic beverage without as much acid as one usually gets from most mixers and the vanilla in the A&W really set's it off.
Naturally it's allways tasters choice when it comes to such so something like rum or whatever else that tickles a persons taste buds might go well with A&W or some other rootbeer for that matter.
So long as it's rootbeer and a flavored liquor it's a twisted rootbeer.
Here's links to interesting facts about vanilla and rootbeer for the chronically curious minds out there.
http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Vanilla ~5.2 Medicinal effects :
In old medicinal literature, vanilla is described as an aphrodisiac and a remedy for fevers. These purported uses have never been scientifically proven, but it has been shown that vanilla does increase levels of catecholamines (including epinephrine, more commonly known as adrenaline).In an in-vitro test, vanilla was able to block quorum sensing in bacteria. This is medically interesting because in many bacteria quorum sensing signals function as a switch for virulence. The microbes only become virulent when the signals indicate that they have the numbers to resist the host immune system response (Choo et al. 2006).The essential oils of vanilla and vanillin are sometimes used in aromatherapy.~ ~> ~> http://www.biospiritual-energy-healing.com/anarosebotanicals.html <~

Peeps still peepin' over 4500 times a month,moving closer to the old home,the gals I lost,new troubles,old problems,it's just business,they're letters not numbers and we're not chimps,ya'll.
I gotta thank you people out there.
Thank you,thank you,thank you.
And thanx again.
The past two months have seen high pg vw counts of 4793 (jan)and 4806 (feb).
This month it allready hit the 49's (4983 on the 14th) and was showing 281 for yesterday and 4911 sofars when I logged in this a.m.
(note:I wrote this entry over a course of days starting on 3/21. Coming in to finish up and post at 11:52p on 2/1 I was showing 102 for yesterday and 4615 sofars.)
I guess I am getting new readers on a semi-regular basis because I'm sure the oldsters have read through everything that might have interested them by now but the numbers are rising.
I do know of at least one person who resides 'deep in the heart of Texas' who just recently began reading Wee!Gee!(Hi Kathy!) but she isn't really a surprising addition considering she was informed of it by word of mouth.
What gets surprising for me is when a stranger is encountered who allready knew of it before I or my wife tells them about it.
Like for instance,,my wife called a local county admin agency recently about a certain matter we were trying to get taken care of,,and discovered that the person she was talking to had allready read Wee!Gee!,,this blog and most of the other things I've posted.
The person said she could not remember how she found it but was glad she did.
Alas,tho',,,not one email,message board post or comment form sent.Nor has anyone ever tickled the little buttons down to the right at the bottom of these posts.
(No one has even purchased any of my 'products' let alone a copy of The
Rough Manuscripts. ~sigh~)
I don't know which is worse,,no comments or no cash.
Okay,,yes,,I do know,,it's no cash.After all,,the pg vws are a reasonable substitute for comments but the no cash bit can keep me from seeing the count in a convenient fashion.
Not that I'm complaining mind you,,but things are pretty glum in my neck of the woods so,,,even if ya need to consider it a donation to 'hep a brudder out' during a depression,,,buy my butter,please.~smirk~
(and if'n your not inclined to do so,,here's the 'tongue in cheek' response you shouldn't take seriously.Bumper sticker BMB02 Yet,,if you did take it as such,here's a retort to that which is delivered in a way that you may wish to have in hand yourself,,Mug w/"I'd rather,,," ~smirk~ Okay,,I'm done now.)
We did finally get moved.And no,,we didn't have to move to Texas.~whew!~
Actually,,it's not far from where I grew up and I even use to run up and down this street on occasion so the location is not a negative per se.
And it is nice to have windows and a yard after 7 years in that warehouse.
I and my wife like it.
Yet,,,we did lose a LOT of elbow (&work) room since we relocated to a two bedroom with a detached garage along with about 3 grand in material and inventory,,and,,,sadly,,Mama Francis-Jeanne and Arni.
I did manage to keep Suki and the latest newcomer tho.( I ain't named it yet,,,but the name Gracie keeps popping up.)
The recent coldness did take a toll on them but I think they will bounce back fairly well.
Of course,,,the new situation brings new troubles.
Like,,getting rid of a bunch of melaluca (paper tree) debris,poison ivy vines,some kind of martian looking plant that grows back from the tiniest bits in an amazingly short amount of time and dealing with mold growing under and between several layers of linoleum for the years this place sat empty.
And,,the same old problems are still present.
Like,,getting paying work to pay the land LORD,the tax collector,the utilities providers and occasionally provide for an itty bit of 'pursuit of happiness'.
Which brings us to how it's getting harder and harder to believe in the 'freedom' that America has been known for for so long.
While I am sure those on the outside looking in may still perceive this place as being filled with limitless opportunities the harsh reality I see from my position on the inside is not so rose tinted.
And,,the sad part is,,it's so hard for most to see.
The chains that bind us are painted up to look like either staple necessities,jewelry or safety straps so virtually all willingly accept them.
IOW,,the usual business is business as usual.
I have two thoughts on 'all that biz' right now.
One,,consider what Yeshua was tempted with while in the desert.
Provision,Power & Protection.
Two,,chi,xi,stigma does NOT equal 666.
Sure,,that's the commonly accepted assumption.
There are those who have different takes on what else it may or may not really mean.
And that's no surprise since it seems apparent that the things in that old book often carry ideas and concepts in a multi-level fashion.
And THAT'S no surprise since the language's we all use are quite capable of that.
Take acronyms for example.
Yeah,,we all know how they work.
~The ?#8222;γαμος (G22)d, ?euro;γαθοεργá½³ω (G14)th and an obsolete letter (4742 as a cross) of the Greek alphabet (intermediate between the ?euro;ββα (G5)th and ?#338;βελ (G6)th), used as numbers ~
*chi = 'unmarried, unwedded, single' from (as a negative particle) ?#8222;λφα (G1) meaning Alpha and γá½±μος (G1062) meaning 'marriage/wedding'.
*xi = 'to work good, to do good, to do well, act rightly' from ?euro;γαθá½¹ς (G18) and ?#8221;ργον (G2041) which essentially means labouring to do the good thing.
*stigma = 'abba' which is of Aramaic origin ?Ö·?#8216; (H2) meaning 'father'.
combined with 'abel' = "vanity (that is: transitory)" which is of Hebrew origin ?#8221;Ö¶?#8216;Ö¶?#339; (H1893) and is the same as ?#8221;Ö¶?#8216;Ö¶?#339; (H1892) meaning 'to act emptily, become vain, be vain/to cause to become vain/to fill with vain hopes'.
Mull that over for a while,,let the concepts,,and the implications,,sink in a bit then go read someone elses thoughts on why thinking reading those three letter words as three digits is proper is a mistake.
Now,,I am not presenting his bit as a way of saying I agree with all his conclusions,,or assumptions,,or opinions,,but just as a means to illustrate how PERCEPTIONS seem to have gotten skewed somehow along the line.
And NO,,I am not suggesting who ever reads this ought to consider what I suggest is what they should believe.
BUT,,I am saying,,,folks maybe owe it to themselves to check out what they think they believe in order to make sure that THAT IS what they believe regardless of whether they like what IT IS or not.
Once an honest minded body learns to use language (read/hear/see) and use reference material nobody NEEDS a 'teacher' to learn a thing if it's in an available form and NO body needs a 'teacher' to think about a thing.
That applies to any subject not just that what's in that old book.
Like our liberties,freedom and dignities and whether or not one will simply take any deal offered because they can't tell a good deal from a bad deal or recognize deception.
After all,,no matter how badly coprporations and politicos want us to behave like,,or believe we should act like we are,,,we aren't chimps,,are we?
Yet,,does it (that old book and what it talks about) matter anyway?
Mmmmm,,I suppose that for some,,maybe it's kinda like my site,,,ya read it,,maybe ya like it,,maybe ya loathe it,,and chances are good ya might feel like it don't make sense so ya can't really claim you understand it right away,,but as ya flip the page,,close the book,,or,,clik away,,ya get a message sent into your brain that essentially says,,,
Thanks for visiting and,,
Ya'll come back now,,y'hear?!?

120,841 peeks close the year,new one starts with ups,downs and same ol',same ol
Last year closed out with 120,841 pg vws counted for this itty bitty blog o' mine.
Amazingly,,,even tho I have posted nothing new since October the monthly count is staying around 4500.
Logging in tonight the pg vw counter showed 120 for yesterday and a hi for this month of 4508 (down from 4674 on the 17th).
I am still amazed (happily of course) that there are that many folks coming through here.
Thank you all very much!I truly appreciate it.
And even more amazed no one has e-mailed me with any comments,critisizms,critiques or even kudos.
IOW,,I don't know who loves it or who loathes it.
Yet,,that's all okay since the pg vw counter tells me the truth of the matter.
And that is,,,a page is looked at around 4500 times every month.
Happily,my plants have weathered the recently past cold spell fine.
(Arnie is even putting out another 'apple'.)
Happily,I got a Facebook account which has allowed me to see pics of my two nieces 'never before seen by my eyes' faces.
(And a grand niece,,with another one,,or a nephew on the way.~wow~)
Happily,,I also contacted a couple of old friends thru FB as well.
Happily,,,me and most of mine are walking,talking and breathing.
Sadly,,,one of my brothers isn't.
Sadly,,I have not yet wrote any more of Wee!Gee!
Sadly,,the Excite boards have went bye-bye.
Sadly,,the economy is even deeper in the ditch.
I don't know about about other places but here where I live it's horrible.
I read something the other day where it was stated that there was 17% or so unemployment rate here then just today my wife was told by a gov worker that it was more like 30%.
Of course,,with a number like that one has to remember how many folks work/exist on the fringes that are not counted in those stats and adjust accordingly by adding at least another 5 if not 10% to that.(And that jives with my 'eyeball' guesstimate of around 40% since about 4 out of every 10 folks I know of are out of work.)
Yet,,,that's NOT what is broadcast on the local area news stations.
Sadly,,it seems the rich folks are even scared to spend money now and I am facing a distressingly severe lack of projects coming my way.(Add that to our landlord making up stories about someone buying his unfinished,delapidated,dangerous building for a quarter mill,,if it's empty,,and it equals to a forced relocation for us.Heck,,,we may wind up in Texas.)
Should I insert a tirade here about how stupid or incompetent politicos look when they mess something up by trying to fix it?
Why not?Because,,sadly,,not only is my pc still not up to snuff,,it looks more like to me that what we have now is the very effect they were shooting for so incompetence while trying to fix a problem is not a factor.
Even if that's not the case,,I sincerely hope a bunch of folks see clearly how detrimental an unbalanced political arena is for our form of government.
As in,,it's bad,,very bad for our government.
er,,excuse me,,I should NOT say bad for gov,,,I should say,,'bad for US'.
After all,,what THEY are doing is good for them,,both sides,,not us from what I can see.
I'm tempted to try to vent a little by laying out some of the devious,duplicitous things our gov appears to be doing but since I am still,,sadly,,working with a half crippled pc you folks won't be subjected to such in this entry.
Allthough,,I willl say,,,mandates eliminate choices,,less goverment equals more freedom,,health insurance reform does not equal healthcare cost reform,,,better wages mitigate affordability issues,,,less regulation (and less taxes) spurs growth and sustainable business action,,more jobs equal a more economically vigourous community/nation,,if ya have to use credit to get something you really can not afford it,,professional politicians and lawyers,along with the corporations they pander to,,are at the heart of our nations troubles,,,our governemnt is the biggest,baddest corporation on the block,,and 'legal does NOT equal honest'.
Now,,back to some things a little more personal.
This whole facebook thing has me at a loss somehow.
I can't seem to make much sense of the 'controls' or something.
Maybe it's my 'lame' pc and I can't see some things I should be able to but I can't make out what's publicly shared or not,,among other things.
Add that,,,,to the whole idea of family I really do not know and I sort of freeze up when I am logged in then wind up feeling kind of like a 'peeping tom' seeing the stuff they post/cross post on my 'wall'.
(I think I actually feel shy which is something I haven't experienced in decades.go figure.)
Like I said above,,the Excite Forums have closed.
Sadly,,that means a slew of links on my site will no longer return a page.
A lot of the regulars have migrated to other boards.There were several that popped up as the place wound down and I have registered at this one which michaelbrown200 set up:
A lot of good conversations disappeared from the web when it shut down.
Of course,,,a lot of drivel went away with them.
I truly wish I could turn out some more of Wee!Gee! for those who have been reading it.I am saddened and feel pretty low about it but I just can't seem to get myself going on it.It does seem like I am simply depressed about the overall socio-econo-political situation and that is really a hinderence to wringing a tale like Wee!Gee! out of my psyche.
Perhaps if someone gave me a review or something of what I have wrote so far I may be able to get a little oomph worked up.(??)~hint~hint~
Yet,,even if not,,when I manage to do so,,I will post it and there it will be for those who like or loathe it to see.
Ya'll come back now,y'hear?!?

102,213 pg vws and a mixed bag of assorted sad stuff.
Topic: Multiple Topic
That's a bong a gongin',,er,,a gong a bongin',,for all 102,213 total peeks you people have given my pages here at Tripod since I started them back in 07.
Thank you all very much!
Even tho the count had dropped down into the hi 3000's for one month it still finished out in the 4000's,I have been getting a count in the 4000's for about a year and a half now,the hi number from the month of August,which was 4470,pushed the total over the 100,00 mark.(Not to mention,,but I will,,the former bellringer of 5030 back in April was nice boost.~thankya,thankya,thankya!~)
When I logged on to make this post the pg vw counter was showing 131 for yesterday and 4531 sofar for this month.
(oh,,and for the record,,I actually started this post entry back on Sept.4th.)
To those who regularly come through,I apologize in advance for the following downer entry you are about to wade through.
I have allways tried to keep these upbeat at best and at least not reflective of the negative events or circumstances in my life so this post should hopefully be seen as an example of my base humanity and not taken as a reason to shy away in the future since those 'emotional' tides do change.
IOW,,the next one (whenever I may make it) will most likely NOT be as dismal as what you are about to read.
Unfortunately,I have not written any more of Wee!Gee! in a while.For those looking for such,,I apologize profusely and can only offer up a rather chagrin filled explanation of,,,not only has my PC situation NOT changed,,I ain't been feelling up to it what with all the crud going on in our political arena.
(Not to mention,,yet I feel I must,,Tripod has been doing some stuffinvolving replacing a new,different 'site-editor prog' called WebOn so I have also been waiting for them to get done doing that.then,,they then decided to keep the old and just add the new as an option,'whenever' upgrade.That is done,now.)
After all,,for the first time in my life,,I can not enthusiastically proclaim I am proud to be an American.
3 words:BO and Co.
(That includes both sides of the partisan aisle.As far as I can tell these days,they are virtually indistinguishable from each other.)
Never before have I felt there was so much reason to doubt this nations future.
In the past,,even with the various illogical,unethical and morally doubtful behaviour from our politicians I have essentially had an unsinkable faith in our nations citizenry's ability to see through the haze well enuff to turn back the ever increasing growth of Gov.
There had allways seemed to be a few decent minded members of our ruling class who actively and vigorously pursued the goals of our founders.
That is no longer the case.
From what I can see,,neither party is actually looking out for the best interests of the free people called Americans.
Without getting into all the 'particulars',,,we are drowning in a flood of lies flowing down off of Capitol Hill.
And like with what happened in New Orleans during Katrina,,,the dikes that are supposed to protect US (our state level politicos) have been compromised due to a severe lack of maintenence brought about through widespread incompetence,purposeful inattention designed to allow a failure in order to bring about just such a scenario as we have developing or a total sellout to position preserving participants and career minded capitulation in order to avoid financial difficulties.
Of course,,there are a few other ways of looking at it.
Like,,McCarthy was not ALL wrong.
And those who opposed him have gained considerable ground.
Our 'head' has been converted into a devotee of certain 'religious ideology' which is antithetical to our nations culturally,historically traditional moral,ethics,values and virtues that has a 'creedo' that gets sung every evening.
From a windy land,,revellie has been sounded for radicals.
A stupour has fallen on those folks,,and many,many more as a certain old book predicted would happen and they have all chosen to follow the broad path to destruction instead of looking for the narrow,straight path.
No matter which take on it is selected it really seems to me that it could be said like so:
The day is here,,or nearly so,,in which we will be delivered up to 'death/destruction' by those who think/claim they are doing a good thing for US.
I am sure that many who have slogged through my blatherings on this blog,,or are familiar with my views as expressed on and/or through my postings at or about the excite boards can decipher my meanings.
Whether you agree with my take on things is,,naturally,,another thing all together.
Yet,,regardless of that,,no one can deny that things are un-necessarily confused and chaotic here in what used to be easily seen as 'the home of the free' thanx to what amounts to our local (D.of C.)chapter of Olympian wannabe gods and their faithful acolytes and worshippers.
Nuff sed,for now.
As for a couple of those other things I have typed about in the past:
My pineapples are doing fine,,and I even started a new one from the last cone I harvested.Those crazy ants (raspberry) are once again gaining ground against the various other species.
I still have yet to upgrade my pc related gear in order to upload pics of the various things I've mentioned.
The other book I have started is languishing.
And as for my 'long lost' sister.
Well,,with an 'almost' broke heart I must say,,she seems to be very similar to the 'not lost' siblings and assorted relatives like nephews,nieces,aunts,uncles and cousins I have been blessed with.(I apparently have to chase her down to interact with her and any interest or opinions they may have regarding what I have here are totally non existant based on the feedback or comments they could easily provide yet haven't.Yeah,,this is a purposely pointed,publicly posted set of statements that I honestly do hope they all read.)
All of you folks out there with close knit families really should thank whatever you hold sacred that you have one of those.Take it from someone who does not have such a family,,it's worth more than gold,,or even good credit.Go quickly and tell your relatives that they are loved,cherished and appreciated while you can.
Since they insist on acting like a bunch of strangers who thankfully do visit yet do NOT comment I must,,for my own sense of selfworth,,reluctantly place them and the situation in the same box labeled,,'too bad,,so sad' that I place the many others who do not comment in and simply say,,
Whether ya like it or loath it,,thanx for visiting,,I appreciate it.
Ya'll come back now,y'hear!?!
