On The Road To Forever

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

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

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)
Lest we forget

May 28, 2014
Memorial Day is another one of those celebrations that has been kicked around to become a “three-day weekend” holiday. Originally, and how I’ll always remember it, Decoration Day (Memorial Day) started as a day of remembrance for Civil War dead, to honor Union and Confederate soldiers who had died in the war. It was a time when families traveled to distant cemeteries, to clean up and decorate the tombstones of departed loved ones. May 30 was chosen to be the most appropriate because that is the time of year when the wildflowers and annuals were at their peak in the regions of most of the cemeteries. Memorial Day today is observed to honor all those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom of our country, their life’s blood. It differs from Veterans Day in November (November 11) in that, on Veterans Day we acknowledge all veterans, living and departed, that have served our country in wartime. Shamefully, in today’s society, both days of honor are more about a day off from work. Memorial Day is the kickoff weekend of the summer. Lest we forget!  (More)
Fun with Mother Nature

May 21, 2014
Mother Nature has my little Chihuahua freaked out. It’s her first spring of the year and of course everything is new to her. At least she’s past being mesmerized by the flight of birds and all the noises that come with them. Now it’s flies and snails and beetles and ants. Two things she has recently learned to steer clear of, ants and cats. When one is built low to the ground it’s quite convenient to simply stop for a rest, while in the middle of a good run around the yard, sitting down in the cool damp grass for a moment before continuing.  (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.
