This is my second blog.

My first blog chronicled my experiences over three years caring for my dad as he lived through and finally died from Alzheimer's. That is the book that is for sale.

This second blog kind of chronicles of life, what it is like to start your life over in your late 50's. After caretaking, you are damaged, file bankruptcy, and the world doesn't care what you did. After 8 months of unemployment, you wake each day knowing the world doesn't want you. Finally you do find a job, 5 weeks before homelessness, but doing what you did 30 years ago and getting paid what you did 30 years ago. So this is starting over.

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

So, our esteemed President is in the hospital with a sore throat.

Sorry, not even going to touch that joke.

Thanks to the Steve Quayle website for catching this and posting a link:

Flash Mob: The U.S. Air Force Band at the Smithsonian:JOY TO THE WORLD!

Nice to see the military shove political correctness aside and still play a song celebrating the birth and coming of Christ, which also makes me wonder, why do we only sing Joy To The World at Christmas? Shouldn't that be a song to sing every day of the year?

Well, sometime this month I have my synchronicity birthday.  Born in '57 and will be 57.  I wonder if that is some sort of thing; I mean many people get that once in their lifetime, some when they will be too young to appreciate it, many born in the last two decades of a century won't live to see the moment, but in a short time it will be 57 and '57.  Maybe I'll play 5757 in the lotto that day.

So, ask yourself this question; why was Tebow essentially banned from the NFL?  How bad was he?  Worse the RGIII?  Worse than over half of the quarterbacks chosen the last two years in the draft?  Would the Jets have been worse the last two years with Tebow?  Sure is a mind bender if you ask me, but then you didn't so I'll shut up now.

Clintitis?  Sorry.

Spent a good part of a wasted day watching youtube videos on Planet X.  Always found that a fascinating topic, though most of what is available is crap.  I remember back in high school and college the talk of a 'second sun' concept.  When you look at how planets rotate around our sun, it's not a circle; in fact, during winter here we are millions of miles closer to the sun than in the summer, but the tilt of the axis makes for those short and cold days.  Come summer, we are tilted more towards the sun in the northern hemisphere ergo the warmer weather and longer days.

But if you, instead of having one point in the center, the sun, made the sun one of two members of a foci, then the rotations fit, but what happened to that other celestial body?  Sagan talked about the wandering planet in Cosmos and it was often discussed scientifically until the mid 1980's when all the talk died, except on the 'conspiracy' front.

The trouble is so many people make a living out of selling books and dvd's about a subject and there is so much crap out there it's hard to take much of it seriously.  Stechins or something like that is one of the most famous of the bunch, but his 'interpretation' of ancient texts has been pretty much ridiculed and proven false by Michael Heiser and others.  Too many people around making their living selling lies, whether it be the 9/11 truthers or Planet X people .

I watch some of the pictures and videos where you supposedly see this planet at sundown or sunrise and I'm like really?  Do you ever see a planet or star in daylight?  It has to be as close as the dang moon to see it in daylight and if there were a planet reported to be 4x the size of Jupiter out there, we'd see the damn thing.  They point their cameras right at the sun and golly, there is another round circle somewhere, which shouldn't be a surprise, it would be a surprise not to see some sort of refraction or image.

But it cracks me up the way you see this and the narrator goes "see, positive proof of Planet X".  And I laugh and look for another video, nothing to see here.

Now what is interesting is the number of astronomy professionals that have died, almost all in the southern hemisphere, where the theory is Planet X is approaching, which by the way is another reason to laugh at the videos because if it is approaching from the south, then you won't see it in North American at sunset, duh.  But there is a nice little list growing of astronomers who have had 'accidents' quick dying cancers, etc who were all working at observatories in the southern hemisphere.  Coincidence, maybe, too soon to tell, but then as V said, there are no coincidences only the appearance of coincidences.

I really loved Cosmos, even though when I watched it the last time I found myself poking holes in it and counting the number of 'facts' that were really assumptions and beliefs, but I just love that opening sequence of music and the picture of the cosmos on the screen.

So after several hours of watching, I found nothing of real substance.  Why should I be surprised?  One show, Incoming, I watched the first but wasn't really paying attention on the second as I was cleaning, but it had some interesting stuff about underground bases and cities our government has built all around the country for the elite to hide in when Planet X gets here, but I'm not real sure having a mountain on top of you would be a really good place to be if the earth is shaking, rattling and rolling.  Not to mention flooding and all the water pouring into the air system.  Be funny if all the expendable people survived on the surface and all the elite were buried in their underground fortresses.  But then, so few ever get to the end of Ecclesiastes:

Here the conclusion of the whole matter
Fear God and keep His Commandments
For this is the whole of man
For God will bring every work into judgement 
Including everything that has been overlooked
Whether it be good or it be evil
