        • We’re dry and fine up here (Down here, depending on whether or not you live in Michigan). The remnants of Harvey are scheduled to come in on Friday, but the weather forecast’s been wrong before.

          I will admit that I am down in the dumps. I interviewed for a job that I would have liked to have and was passed over for it. That hurt, especially after they told me in the interview that I was “definitely qualified” for it.

          • I’m sorry about the job. That’s got to be disappointing. My younger daughter will have to find a full time job next spring because she’ll be too old to be on our insurance and may have to leave college because doing both will too much for her. It’s a big decision.

            I guess you were just in Indiana for school?

            I’m praying that Harvey will weaken soon and stop wreaking havoc. I’m from the coast of Texas where it’s been hardest hit. Most of my family is there still. It’s been devastating. So far they’ve been okay and some are helping with rescues. Yesterday my niece had water up to her door, but none inside, however… there’s a levee that looks like it could break and if it does, her house will flood like so many others. It needs to end soon. πŸ™πŸ»

            • I know where your daughter is coming from. that’s the situation I’m in, except that I have graduated. She might want to try half-time at college if she plans to work full time. I don’t know how she feels about that but it might be worth looking into.

              My immediate family moved to Indiana several years ago. The bulk of my extended family lives in Michigan. I want to go back, which is probably half my problem. I don’t have residency there but I keep applying there and I think people pass me by for that reason.

              Oh, no! I am sorry to hear that your family was in the line of the storm. Are they trying a controlled release on the levy by your niece’s house to see if that will help? Or is that not feasible at this point?

              • I hope that it works out where you can live and work in Indiana. Lots of good people there who are very conservative and love our country.

                My DD has thought about doing part-time college and full-time job, but it largely depends on what kind of job she gets. She has some health concerns that have limited her and she can’t tax her body too much. We will just have to pray a lot that it all works the way it’s supposed to.

                My sister is in touch with my niece about the situation with the levee in SE Texas. She hasn’t heard from her today, though, so we’re not sure where it stands. My whole family has been trying to reach my aunt, but can’t get hold of her, so that’s got us worried.

                    It’s amazing how things you sometimes think are bad are actually a plus. This happened for a reason. Don’t let it stop you.

                    When my first grandson was little, both my daughter AND SIL lost their jobs (2002). She picked up so many freelance jobs during the hiatus that they were able to pay their bills, pay their medical insurance (COBRA), and he watched their son. I saw the same thing happen multiple times to my SIL who is a commercial artist. Every time he loses a job (ad agencies are notorious for this), he always picks up enough free lance work to get them through the rough spot.

                    How does this apply? You learn through adversity that you can do it, that you have what it takes to persevere.

        Anyway, the single cup brewer reminded me of our Vietnamese coffee. They have a small stainless container that sits on a glass. A hge tablespoon or more of grounds are put in the hopper and the rest of the space is filled with boiling water. It drips fown, a thick coffee syrup, onto ice. When the coffee’s all run thru you stir in and equal amount of condensed milk, stir well and enjoy. A super iced coffee on a hot day.

Snow doesn’t come often to North Texas, but when it does and everything is covered in white, to see the cardinals in the trees is incredibly beautiful with their bright red against the glistening white. So breathtaking.

      My husband had two things he made central to raising our children. Taking them to mass, living the faith, through daily example of right and honest living. And work. Hard work, brutal even, by the time they were teenagers.

      It was important to me as well, but he built his role as a father primarily around these two basics, aside, of course, from loving them and enjoying them very much.

      It absolutely paid off for them.

        I like to stress “diligence”, rather than “hard work”. Proper application of brain power can minimize the requirement for muscle power. Yeah, you could move that refrigerator by the hard work of sheer muscle power, but a dolly makes it so much easier, making you more productive.

          You made some assumptions here. First, he taught work ethic. As they got older, he told them they could make a living with their back or their brain. Also, he has made a career of finding ways to do things in unique ways that save his company a lot of money, enabling them to take jobs especially because he thought of a faster, better, less labor intense way to do it.

          Just because I said he taught them to work hard, and even introduced them to some work that just required backbreaking labor, is not cause to assume the man doesn’t have sense enough to know when to use a time saving piece of equipment.

          It seems to me that you made a leap from point A to point C without even considering what might be in between.

          And I agree with you about diligence, although I emphasized consistency as well. You can go all out one day a week, but if you are a lazy slob the rest of the week, you are not a good employee.

          Hard work may or may not involve muscle. One of my sons is a top salesman. And he is very, very good at his job because he works very hard at it, both mentally and physically, by getting out and finding business, seeing need, meeting people, staying trained. Another son is an owner/operator trucker. He spent years learning the industry and makes a profit by knowing the industry, the customers, the differences in pay rates in certain areas of the country, and even specific industries that may or may not make a load profitable for obscure reason. He know a great deal about the mechanical end of the business and does some repairs. Hard work is an ethic, not a measuremt of strength.

      This is the way so many younger employees look at work…benefits and days off. I remember our Federal employees, we received 13 days of sick leave a year that accrued forever and could be applied to retirement pay, using it as personal leave that was frequently used to extend a 3-day weekend.
      Employees with less than 3 years service got 13 workdays of leave a year, from three to fifteen years of service they had twenty days and over fifteen 26 days. Then you received about 11 holidays and that doesn’t include ‘weather’ days.
      As I’ve said before, when I retired I received 65 guaranteed workdays off a year…the Federal government leads the way!

      How interesting it is to see spoiled people with their needs met, who hide who they are, doing violence in riots being pushed by the media as “the norm”, and as “their right”; but in reality, these wonderful people, and many like them, in the light of day, under horrid circumstances, with their faces shown are doing good deeds. There are people every day, with no thanks or publicity quietly doing good deeds. I wonder if there is any news outlet that shows the mode (the largest number of the bell curve) of people, good, decent working people are doing. (Maybe like “Dirty Jobs” ?)

    Good morning everyone.
    Today’s picture is by the brilliant artist Bessie Pease Gutmann. Bessie Pease Gutmann (1876 – 1960) was an American artist and illustrator most noted for her paintings of infants and young children. Her greatest recognition came from a series of hand-colored prints which highlighted the innocence of young children. Two of her most notable works were A Little Bit of Heaven and The Awakening. Gutmann’s work was popular through the 1920s, but by World War II, interest in her style had declined. Due to failing eyesight, she retired from drawing in 1947. In 1906, Gutmann married Hellmuth Gutmann, one of the brothers who co-owned the publishing firm where she was employed. The couple had three children, Alice, Lucille, and John, who became the models for Gutmann’s illustrations.
    The Awakening

    A Little Bit of Heaven

    Each week I will post one painting devoted to the innocence, value, and love of children. One of the most under-reported, insidious, and evil things going on today is to take away the innocence and value of children.

      I majored in commercial art in high school. We didn’t have a lot of training in painting, but we did have a period where we studied portrait art, and I remember my teacher explaining to us that it took special skill and a very delicate touch to be able to portray babies and very young children. He told us that the usual techniques used to build the features, add the shadowing just make babies not look like babies but weird. I remember him telling us that even most celebrated portrait artists could usually not do babies.

    Just popped in to comment on some of the great posts yesterday:
    Stella – great post on the money spent on repeat flood claims. I believe you are given money ONCE, and you make the choice of where to re-build, and YOU TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR CHOICE.

    Lucille – love your “life may not be the party” pic ;-), but HATE MICE!

    facebkwallflower – Agree entirely on PT vs. President Trump. Let”’s take back the vocabulary.

    Menagerie – great article http://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher/all-cultures-are-not-equal-middle-class-bourgeois/ I read all the comments. It seems many progressive commentators believe nothing is the fault of personal choices, it’s all corp. greed and outsourcing. I also notice some have no knowledge of logic. In my humble opinion it is both personal choices and outsourcing, automation, and corp. greed (I disagree with corp. as an entity. It takes away responsibility from those in the corp. making the decisions. If there is a real problem, you should sue the owners etc personally).
    Also what very, very few mention is what happens to the % of the population that does not have the mental capabilities to function in a high-tech society. I would suggest not all jobs that could be automated are automated. By not automating everything people with non-skilled capabilities can get up every day, and go to work vs. staying at home sitting there getting a gov’t hand-out. I truly believe this is better for a person psychologically, and I really do care about people who TRULY have less capabilities (vs those who are just lazy takers). Many groups do something similar with mentally disabled people. What I still have not figured out is that in today’s economics, they will not make enough income to survive. In the past, in similar circumstances, (in my family due to the early death of my grandfather, and great -grandfather due to work accidents, vs capability issues) a whole multi- generational family would live and work together, and that is how it worked out. Today, in some part because of the total breakdown of the family unit, in some areas not just illegitimacy, but not even knowing who the children’s father is, this does does not work out. (A big downside of LBJ’s “great society”). It has been generations of incremental changes in VARIOUS sectors of society, technology, and economics that made these problems, but sadly we don’t have 60+ years to turn it around. Just some unfinished observances and thoughts. Hope post is not too long.
    Back to work now. Have a great day everyone. Pray everyone is safe, and hello to everyone I missed. πŸ™‚

          When I was living out in the country…dirt public roads type of country…(wow, never again! LOL!)…we had mice in our pantry. Our solution was to leave the pantry open and three cats inside the house. Lil’ guys disappeared never to return. Luckily the outside cats (also three) took care of critters of all small types roaming near the house and apparently no mice got in the walls.

          Speaking of sounds at night…coyotes yipping and wolves yodeling…OY!…something else I never want in my life again. A young coyote came in our yard one late afternoon and our huge German Shepherd chased him around barking up a storm. The coyote was wily, all right. He’d run back and forth under the fence railing and our dog was too big to follow. Hilarious! The youngster finally got tired of the game and ran back into the woods.

            About five years or so ago we had a fire, had to move to a house in town for four months. We heard sirens every night, traffic, just general city noise. Hated every minute of it. I seriously think it was the longest four months of our lives. We truly were very unhappy.

            It was a good day when we came back to our woods. Now the noises are peaceful ones, mostly. It’s pretty wonderful to have such a country we live in. People have a lot of choices of environment.

            Coyote msy have been plsying more than a game. One of their tactics for getting lsrge housepet tartar is to entice the larger dog out to the brush to play…where there are more coyotes out there just waiting for Fido to partake of inclusiveness.

          I came out the other day and our cute little Russia Blue was eating a field rat she’d caught, big enough to filet. They also get up into your equipment, build nests, nibble on wire and anything else dofter than their teeth and raise hell in the feed. Definately see why we put up with cats for so long.

    This despicable woman is likely being funded by Soros and certainly by the jihadis. How did she come to prominence so quickly anyway?

    Just back from errands, one of them in Safeway. The Safeway store leases space to a Savings and Loan office of some ilk near the entrance.

    Today I saw, for the first time, a large and plain sign at that savings and loan that said, along these lines:

    “For the safety of our customers, we ask that all head gear that conceals facial features be removed while in Safeway. This includes scarves, hoodies, large sunglasses, etc. etc. Thank you for…..whatever”

    If I hadn’t been so tired already I would stopped and asked them if that applied to Moslems as well. Moslem headgear was not pictured on the helpful illustrations.

    One can only hope.

    A follow-up to the vid from Dr. Lee yesterday…this one is by his son Matt and his friend who went to Houston with jet skiis to see how they could help. Dr. Matt is a darling young man with a great family. He has three YouTube channels with thousands of subscribers: Off the Ranch, Demolition Ranch, and Vet Ranch.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    And, Lord, we pray for help for the people of Texas who are caught in the flooding.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen

    Prices here have jumped about 20 cents in the last couple of days. Oregon is always higher than most places, along with Alaska and Hawaii. Haven’t figured out what the going excuse for that is yet.
