On The Road To Forever

Who are we trying to impress?

July 30, 2014
What was billed as the world’s most expensive new book went on display in 2008 at the New York Public Library. There are more expensive old books, but this is a new book produced by the Italian publisher Marilena Ferrari. It costs more than $100,000! The book depicts the life and works of Michelangelo, including photographs of his drawings and sculptures, creations from the Sistine Chapel, and his personal poetry. The book weighs 62 pounds, has a front cover of white marble, and is covered with red silk velvet. Its paper is from one of Italy’s oldest paper mills, the same mill where Picasso bought his art paper. Each copy of this book takes six months to make, and comes with a 500-year warranty! More than 20 of the books have been sold to buyers around the world. What I need to know before I invest in one of these books, is the warranty transferable and if repairs are needed in 450 years, who is going to honor the warranty? Can it legally be called the Ferrari of books?  (More)
How to cope: keep swimming

July 23, 2014
The world is becoming more challenging every day and in the words of Oliver Hardy as he frequently reprimanded Stan Laurel, “Well, here’s another nice mess you’ve gotten me into.” I suppose as long as there are hatred, jealousy, and greed, wars and rumors of wars will always be on the earth for however long man exists. Recent world events have shown that mankind is traveling down a road to major world conflict once again and I can’t see North America escaping the ravages of global war this time.  (More)
Incontrovertible truth

July 16, 2014
There’s a lot in this world that can be confusing and some of it holds no truth so I have to be refusing. For example: Have you ever met Miss Under Standing? Have you ever seen a cat fish or a house fly; how about a horse fly; maybe a dragon fly or a fire fly? I’ve heard say that there’s butter fly, but have you ever seen a lemon punch, a waffle iron, or a milk shake? Maybe you’ve seen a clam bake, or a hog wash, but I’ll bet you’ve never seen a barn swallow or a house paint.  (More)
238 years old, showing signs of illness

July 9, 2014
On July 2, 1776, as yearlong battles with the British army lingered, the Continental Congress secretly voted for independence from Great Britain. The Declaration of Independence was first published two days later on July 4, 1776. The first public reading of the document was on July 8, 1776. Delegates of the colonies began to sign (ratify) the Declaration of Independence on August 2, 1776. In 1791, July 4th was dubbed “Independence Day” and was the beginning of daylong celebrations with parades and shows, picnics and games, ending the day with bonfires and illuminations. In 1870, Independence Day became a national holiday. The “Fourth of July” ought to rank right up there with birthdays and anniversaries. The men who had the fortitude to forge this document knew they were placing their lives on the line for the sake of freedom from tyranny. If King George could have gotten his hands on some of these men he would not have hesitated to do away with them.  (More)
Learn to be content in life’s circumstances

July 2, 2014
I suppose anyone with a pet has the desire of wanting the ability to have better communication with their little friends. Our relationship with our pets seems to be rocking right along without any problems and then we come home to find the flower beds uprooted and holes dug all over the lawn, or walk inside to discover what looks like a miniature tornado has passed through the interior of our house. They certainly don’t start purring and rubbing against your leg or stand there looking at you with their tail wagging asking for approval for what they have done.  (More)
Understanding takes time

June 25, 2014
I had been without a dog around the house for years and insisted that if I do get another dog it would be one off the street or from a shelter. I just decided I didn’t need the hassle of potty training and the chewing up of everything in sight while cutting teeth. But I have to tell you, my wife and I are so happy seeing our Chihuahua grow and mature over the past nine months. She came to our home a two-pound dynamo power-puff of fur that had to be caged and taught how to control herself. Like I’ve said before, it’s like raising another child at an accelerated rate.  (More)
More is expected of fathers

June 18, 2014
It is said that men are basically happier than women. There is a lot of evidence to support the theory. Besides, what do you expect of such simple creatures?  (More)
It’s more than a race

June 11, 2014
Just when I thought it was safe to let my guard down a little while sending and receiving emails, I found out that there is a virus going around that even anti-virus programs can’t cure. Like the West Nile Virus one can catch from mosquitoes, the computer version called the Third Nile Virus can actually be passed to humans through computer use and it only seems to affect those born before 1965. Scary, huh? The symptoms are: Causes you to send the same emails twice; causes you to send blank emails; causes you to send emails to the wrong person; causes you to send emails back to the person who sent it to you; causes you to forget to attach attachments; causes you to hit “send” before you’re finished with your message; can cause you to hit “delete” instead of “send”; and can cause you to hit “send” when you should have hit “delete.” This new virus has been dubbed the C-Nile Virus, and I believe this could explain a lot of things going awry at my keyboard lately.  (More)
The devil is at work

In 1964, Paul Harvey, nationally known radio commentator and syndicated columnist, published the following, titled “If I Were the Devil.”  (More)

How Article Search Works

The Article search engine looks for an exact match on any word(s) in the headline or the article body.

You can choose to search only articles in a specific category (e.g., Business) or All News & Blogs.

For example, if you type in the word Floresville, the search results will include Floresville City Council Agenda, Floresville City Council Special Meeting, and any other articles that have the word Floresville in either the headline or the article body.

If you search for multiple words, let’s say the words Floresville and 775, the search results will list any articles that include both Floresville AND 775 somewhere in the headline or the article body.
