  1. My dad had worked at a sand mining and processing plant. We need some dirt so we got in the truck, 1969 Chevy 3/4 ton with a 6 cylinder, and went to his work to get some. Two and a half yards of soil. I had just enough traction to steer, but could feel it almost breaking traction when I accelerated. Fortunately it was only about 10 miles.
  2. "Lying by ommission." Sort of like, "MOM! Billy HIT me!!!" But not telling mom that Billy hit Little Susy because Little Susy was hitting him a belt .
  3. Yep. It was a simple, simplifed, thumbnail look at Taoism. A quaint little book with the title, The Tao of Pooh. Nothing deep, but a gloss to introduce people to Taoist thought.
  4. Thanks, Doc. One I read put it that the 3rd man was smiling because the Vinegar tasted exactly like vinegar was supposed to taste.
  5. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day. The heaven and the earth were finished, and all their array. On the seventh day God finished the work that God had been doing, and God ceased on the seventh day from all the work that God had done. And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because on it God ceased from all the work of creation that God had done. (Genesis 1:31-2:3) Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the Universe, Creator of the fruit of the vine. Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the Universe, who has chosen us from among the peoples, exalting us by hallowing us with mitzvot. In Your love, Adonai our God, You have given us Shabbatot of rest, feasts of gladness and seasons of joy; this Shabbat day and this festival of Pesach, season of our freedom, a sacred occasion, a remembrance of the Exodus from Egypt. For You have chosen us from all the peoples and consecrated us to Your service, and given us Shabbat, a sign of love and favor, and the Festivals, a time of gladness and joy. Blessed are You, Adonai, who sanctifies Shabbat, Israel, and the Festivals.
  6. Or pickles At the dry goods store.
  7. Better now? I really do dislike it when it shows right after I post it, but then no one else can see it.
  8. I haven't found the examples I want - yet - but I know that "bbl" for "barrel" has been around for longer than Standard Oil. Even the history of Standard Oil written iu, I think, 1904, says that. Sometime this weekend I'll find copies of manifests or estate inventories from the 1700s that show it.
  9. A different version of The Vinegar Tasters:
  10. Nope. Not even close. It's a drawing called The Vinegar Tasters and shows the difference between the major Chinese philosophers. "The three men are dipping their fingers in a vat of vinegar and tasting it; one man reacts with a sour expression, one reacts with a bitter expression, and one reacts with a sweet expression. The three men are Confucius, Buddha, and Laozi, respectively. Each man's expression represents the predominant attitude of his philosophy: Confucianism saw life as sour, in need of rules to correct the degeneration of people; Buddhism saw life as bitter, dominated by pain and suffering; and Taoism saw life as fundamentally good in its natural state. Another interpretation of the painting is that, since the three men are gathered around one vat of vinegar, the "three teachings" are one."
  11. Ronn Evans‎BLACK CONFEDERATES AND OTHER MINORITIES IN THE WAR OF NORTHERN AGGRESSION April 18, 2018 · Inthe 2nd half of the 1800 1in 4 cowboys were black.....many of them ex soldiers North & South. (something movie history ofton omits) https://www.legendsofamerica.com/we-bassreeves/ “Maybe the law ain’t perfect, but it’s the only one we got, and without it we got nuthin” – Bass Reeves Born to slave parents in 1838 in Crawford County, Arkansas, Bass Reeves would become the first black U.S. Deputy Marshal west of the Mississippi River and one of the greatest frontier heroes in our nation’s history. Owned by a man named William Reeves, a farmer and politician, Bass took the surname of his owner, like other slaves of the time. His first name came from his grandfather, Basse Washington Working alongside his parents, Reeves started out as a water boy until he was old enough to become a field hand. In about 1846, William Reeves moved his operations, family, and slaves to Grayson County, Texas. Bass was a tall young man, at 6’2”, with good manners and a sense of humor. George Reeves, William’s son, later made him his valet, bodyguard, and personal companion. When the Civil War broke out, Texas sided with the Confederacy and George Reeves went into battle, taking Bass with him.

  16. Almighty Lord, Physician of souls and bodies, You humble and lift up, You reprimand and heal, visit Your servant with Your mercy for she is suffering. Stretch forth Your arm which is so full of healing and health, and cure her, raising her from her bed and pain. Reprove the spirit of weakness which is in her and drive far from her pain, wounds, chills, fever and weakness. If she has sins or transgressions, loosen, remit and forgive them in Your love for mankind. O Lord, have compassion on Your creation, in Christ Jesus our Lord, with whom You are blessed, together with Your all holy, good and life-giving Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
  17. I was thinking much the same last night.
