I really need to start using this line…
So I posted this pic and this comment over at FB…
“Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.
Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.
But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.”
And got called out by my own Mother and a couple of Friends basically chastising me for my insensitivity. “Tell that to someone with ALS!” “It’s raised millions…”
Hmmm…Jesus Juke or rebuke? You decide what my intentions were (rebuke if you must know).
That said, I do not need a bucket of ice water dumped over my head to know those who suffer from ALS…suffer. You can find the origins of the challenge here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_Bucket_Challenge
Now while I wholeheartedly endorse giving to charitable organizations I do believe it is no one’s business to whom and how much I give. You’ll notice Sir Patrick Stewart’s challenge. Him, writing a check, pulling the ice bucket over, dropping two cubes in a drinks glass, pouring some scotch and enjoying his drink with a smile and no words. How much and to whom did he donate? Don’t know. Don’t care. None of my business.
I’ll stand by my post on FB. If you’re offended or think I’m insensitive or don’t get it…not my problem. It’s yours.
Don’t worry, that’s why there’s two.
Tire Spiders. Pretty sure it was Tire Spiders.
I lumped together the other Celtic languages into one post because there aren’t that many resources for these languages (and they aren’t as popular) I suggest if you are serious about the language, then buy a textbook or find a class near you because just these resources isn’t enough. I’ve included Welsh, Breton, Cornish, Manx, and Scottish Gaelic.

What’s the difference between a clever spoonerism and a fart? One’s a shaft of wit… “The Future of Farting” by Dr. Barry Guff
This is the important part: “Let me be clear that the fact that we love you and will stand by you does not in any way mean we will stand by while you do things that you know aren’t good for you.”
I know this plane! I met the crew chief at the old Merced Air Force Base whilst wandering around with my camera. Have a few pics of her in the hangar getting worked on. He allowed me to roam around inside. Great plane!
