You don't know me
You don't like me
You say you care less how I feel
How many of you would sit and judge me
Ever walked the Streets of Bakersfield...............
From the Kern County Desert....
Observations....
Commentary....
Small essays and other things that come to mind or suit me at the time.
All are welcome here, to my world, such that it is.
A walking contradiction, partly truth, partly fiction,
taking every wrong direction on his lonely way back home......

Serenity

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't coming back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me

There's no place I can be
Since I've found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me
"Sign on, young man, and sail with me. The stature of our homeland is no more than the measure of ourselves. Our job is to keep her free. Our will is to keep the torch of freedom burning for all. To this solemn purpose we call on the young, the brave, the strong, and the free. Heed my call, Come to the sea. Come Sail with me." -- John Paul Jones

Counted the Stars

Counted the stars on the 4th of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
As the sun sinks west of the Mendocino county line

I got one of those robot comments today.
No choice on the tightening of things.
If you are Google/Blogger account holders and are also using OpenID, you are good. 
I apologize for the inconvenience.

I moved to Wordpress last summer and they have an option for moderating comments---the first time. Thereafter, once they've an approved comment, they can comment without moderation.

It works. I had to use moderation and/or captcha when I was still using Blogspot. That got old real quick.

I find Blogger's spam trap to be VERY effective... hardly anything gets through. I've been without captcha OR moderation for well over a year now with no problems.

It sucks but what you gonna do? Luckily I don't get all that many visitors so it hasn't been as issue so far. Fingers crossed.

I'm good...yay.

I will not go down and tell my children I didn't have the courage, the conviction, the commitment or the character to fight for this country...Don't go home and let your children down~~ LTC Allen West
