Happy Hour


Mother, Mother Ocean

Mother, Mother Ocean, I've heard you call
Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall
You've seen it all, you've seen it all
Watched the men who rode you, switch from sails to steam
In your belly you hold the treasures, few have ever seen
Most of 'em dream, most of 'em dream
Yes, I am a pirate, two hundred year's too late
The cannons don't thunder, there's nothin' to plunder
I'm an over-forty victim of fate
Arriving too late, arriving too late


"Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is."
―Yoda, to Luke Skywalker

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

Psalm 107:

23They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;

24These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.

Registered User is now in effect for comments

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
