  • Clean out the refridgerator

I am switching-

Happy Thanksgiving !

     Happy Thanksgiving, and Happy Thanksgiving to you!

On the scientific side, I would like to see the data.

For example, a live feed of how many people and others are saying those words.

Maps, graphs, spikes, etc.

I would also like to see how many are thinking the thought.

Usually, people are forced into the thought when they sit down to the Thanksgiving meal and say their prayers.

Although I did meet a young man (mentioned in an earlier blog) who begins every day writing down a list of things he is Thankful for (clean water is always on the list), it is safe to say that the bulk of the population waits for today.

It’s a calibration of the mind.

How could the data be used?  Put it in a jar under the bed?  Turn it into a cell phone “app” to sell (to hospitals first until the first round of money’s made)?

The government could use the data to distribute funds and workers to areas of unthankfulness.

On the social side, it’s obvious. Things quiet down.

Aside from the widget mongers, who, as in the game of musical chairs are left standing, there is Peace.

Traffic goes away  – people have gotten somewhere.

They have gotten to the place.

Whew!

On the political side….ah, the poor political side…nothing worth noting here.

On the religion side, well, Pilgrim, this is what religion has been talking about.

(I am pretty sure gluttony laws are suspended- it’s a feast for God’s sake!)

Happy Thanksgiving!

and Thank You!

until next year,

Happy Veterans Day, 2017 !

Saturday, November 11th, 2017

     We were going to attempt another explanation of this holiday but am holding out on the hope that most people can figure it out themselves.

Thank You Veterans.

and:

Happy Veterans Day !

Of course, some of the rice never makes it into the pot.

Happy Labor Day !

Happy Labor Day !

The Quiet.

It’s deafening.

The sound of Peace.

The Harmony of Quiet.

The exposure of the Futility.

The 24 hour snooze button on the alarm clock that hits itself.

The Message that cannot be ignored.

The Surrender.

The Gratitude.

The Reality Check – (direct deposit).

Something for Everyone.

     Perhaps this is the word I have been looking for. (Perhaps this is what I have been looking for).

In Computer Science, a running process; an object in memory with a value referenced to it.

Shape, appearance and  shine => substance, a Form: something that is in something.

Perhaps this is what is missing from so many people.

Happy Fathers’ Day !

Happy Fathers’ Day !

Sunday, June 18 th, 2017

     When a Father thinks about how much he loves his children, it makes him happy.

Mothers get this right away – you can see it in their face.

I suppose it takes a little longer for it to sink in for the Dad and that is why we wait a month for the Holiday.

Perhaps the two Holidays – (Fathers’ Day and Mothers’ Day) – will be combined in the future, when drones make the deliveries.

There is an “app” for this, but not for your phone.
