I don’t know about you, but I just can’t seem to simply sit down in front of my computer monitor and come up with ideas for posts here at RJsCorner. In the cold weather months I post daily here, so where do all the ideas come from? That is the topic of this post.Read more
For the life of me, I can’t understand how anyone can be hyper-sensitive to criticism but spewing it out by the bucket full every day? Most of us know the Golden Rule, but I guess to him it is “Get as much gold as you can, anyway necessary”.
I will give him the doubt by saying he probably didn’t get much basic education in morals and such as his father was too busy being a slum-lord in NYC at the time. Maybe “Doesn’t Fall Far From the Tree” is a good description. Here is a more about that
I hope that most of us have an underlying desire to be a better person than we are. I also know that is not even on the radar for some. Who are you and what do you want to be? That is the topic of this post.Read more
This post is about how religious institutions stubbornly cling to their doctrine. Religion ABSOLUTELY hate admitting they got it wrong. This post will look deeper into that and try to understand why they do that.Read more
I have come to appreciate the work of modern sculptures. I ran across these by James Campbell entitled “Birth Becomes You” recently at the John Waldron Arts Center in Bloomington Indiana. I plan to go back more for the monthly exhibits. (click on an image to see a larger view)
Now before you start giving me “Financial Planner” speak I want you to listen to what I have to say.Read more
Going forward, that’s how I am determined to stay up with this important political season. Just let the political ugliness run off my back and not even notice it. I know all the attacks from #CO3 (current Oval Office occupant) are not directed towards me but I tend to take everything personally that I read from that despicable person.
Some say that those with Aspie traits lack empathy, but I really believe it is quite the opposite. We tend to personalize everything, so what affects others tends to affect us too. I gotta get over that feeling if I am to continue exposing myself to the ugliness of today’s politics.
I’m still in the deciding mode as I have backed off the Warren pick until I learn more about her “tax the rich” and other schemes. She seems to believe she can do everything she wants as long as there are enough rich people to pay up.
I need to pay closer attention to the others in the pack before it is time for my vote in the primaries. But then again, my State doesn’t vote until May so it will likely be decided before then anyway.
Like water off a duck’s back…
I have been searching for a few days now for the perfect site to display some of my best photographs. After all those hours I have decided to get serious with Flickr… Again. That is what this post is all about.Read more
This post will introduce yet another series for the coming weeks and months. I am determined to push today’s politics to the back burner at RJsCorner and this new series will help accomplish that. Setting that up is what this post is all about.Read more
If we don’t know where we have been then it is likely that we will continue to make the same mistakes over and over again. That is what this post is all about.Read more
This post is going to be about trying to dispel the feeling that some have that I am anti-religious. We don’t need less religion, just better versions.Read more
I thought for this Saturday I would give you a painting I found at the Pennsylvania State Museum a few years ago. Anyone who has been in the eastern part of that State knows it is “Amish Country” and this folksy painting depicts it perfectly.
This post is going to be about some of the lessons I have learned about having challenges in my life. Some revelations come from my readers and some were revealed by other methods. The picture above almost entails everything that is needed to appreciate this post.Read more
First, Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. My wife and I are, as usual lately, spending Thanksgiving alone but I know many of you are heading out to a large family dinner. I hope you get through it without any every dividing political discussions. 😏
Even though we don’t officially celebrate this holiday doesn’t mean that I am not thankful for what the Lord has given me. Here is my list.
- I am thankful for my wife of almost 34 years. She has supported me in ways I couldn’t have imagined.
- I am thankful that I am in good health, at least for a septuagenarian. I just had my three-year echo stress test last week and passed it with flying colors.
- I am thankful for all my followers here at RJsCorner. You, taking the time to be part of my life to see what I have to say means much to me.
- I am thankful for getting three-fourths of the way through #CO3’s term without a national tragedy. I pray that we make it the rest of the way whether it is a couple of months or, dreadfully, a full year.
- In the past I spent ten years celebrating Thanksgiving by preparing the annual meal at a local soup kitchen. I miss all of my friends there but am very thankful for having them in my life.
- I am thankful for all my uRV trips of 2019 and am prayerfully hoping I have at least one more year of being able to travel on my own.
- As I do every day, I am thankful for the good day the Lord gave me yesterday and ask him to give me another one today.
It’s time that I put out another post about Asperger’s Syndrome and why I say I have Aspie traits. It is often said that Aspies don’t have empathy. With this post, I want to try to convince you that is not true using some things I have learned and with some personal examples. That is what this post is about.Read more
In the coming years global warming will eventually be the number one issue for all of us (except maybe for the MAGA/Evangelical folks). I just hope that it rises to that status before it is too late to really do anything about it. We didn’t get into this mess because of one particular thing, and we won’t get out of it with just one thing. This post is about some things each of us can do to make sure global warming is addressed before it is too late.Read more
I am going to do something with this post that I don’t often do and that is to give you a major portions of an article from Psychology Today magazine about Greta Thunberg. She is one amazing young woman.Read more
With this post I am going to bring back my Sunday talks about spirituality and my enlightened view of things religious. This post is about praying to God.Read more
No, I’m not talking about food stamps, the question is more fundamental than that.Read more
This post is about the journey of finding that person who makes you feel whole. The person who you want to spend your life with. What I say just might surprise you, especially coming from a seventy-three-year-old.Read more
