Resolutions?!? Smitheroochians

Why make resolutions that cannot be achieved?!? Thus, I am picking good things that are achievable (although numbered, these are in no particular order or priority; they are all important). Here are my eighteen resolutions for 2018:
Questions and Answers signpost
1. Just once, when I get a bad haircut . . . be HONEST and tell the hairdresser so.

2. We can be proud about our own and loved ones’ HUMILITY. This has worked for the Dalia Lama, Buddha, and Jesus Christ.

3. TRY to make a good habit = a No Fault Attitude. Practice apologizing, even when I am not at fault. If I do it three times, it may become a habit.

4. LOVE one another more. Encourage two pairs of people to develop a more caring relationship.

5. Keep in mind my own SAFETY. As a reminder, look at my four fingers and thumb to ‘fight to save’ all five digits.

6. Pick Six . . . Do something good for a FAMILY member that is unsolicited.

7. Accept LUCK. If 7 isn’t my lucky number, obtain a new one.

8. Use the good SENSES I have going for me. Common sense is one, too. What if I went blind tomorrow? Continuing practice walking in the dark or doing simple tasks with my eyes closed.

9. Do not go more than one day in-a-row without prayer, thanks, or meditation.

10. Perform random acts of KINDNESS at least ten times in 2018. Keep track of them but don’t tell others in order to get credit.

11. Be a better sport. CELEBRATE at least eleven times this year after my favorite team loses. This is achievable because my favorite teams lose often.

12. GIVE UP something I like for a week; Once a month.

13. GAIN 13 pounds. Last fall, I was more than 20 pounds underweight.

14. E – E – E – E. Eat and exercise every day. This should be EASY.

15. Reduce ‘Dumb Phone’ use. Go a couple days without phoning or texting my best friend (of course, warn them ahead so as to not generate ‘any bad blood).

16. BUILD on Teamwork. Once and a while, ask for help even if I do not need it.

17. LEARN two new ways to cope with pain.

18. Remain OPTIMISTIC even though the POTUS behaves poorly, those around me do not experience success, and those close to us pass away.

Holidays this Monday, March 13

There are at least six holidays to choose from and celebrate Monday:

  • National Napping Day (useful with the new daylight savings time)
  • Earmuffs Day (comes in handy with heavy snows in the East and Midwest)
  • Jewel Day (sounds like it could be expensive)
  • K-9 Veterans’ Day (“arf, arf”)
  • Open an Umbrella Indoors Day (watch out) or
  • National Good Samaritan Day

Whatever your pleasure, have a terrific Monday!

Christmas / Holiday Tree Lighting 12/2/2016 in Southern County of San Mateo

Eyewitness Report:

    1. it is so cold, parents are telling their kids they will buy them 2 gallons of ice cream and they can keep it outside overnight; it is so cold, Mayor M. Mueller took a piss on one of the undecorated trees and his urine froze BEFORE it hit the trunk of the tree: it is so cold, that former Mayor Catherine “Let them eat cake” Carlton’s nipples froze and then her falsies fell out of her brazeriere; it was so so cold tonight, the reception of the City of Menlo Park Police was warmer than the ambient air temperature in the County of south San County of San Mateo.
      img_20161203_174650
      This tree was officially lit up – hundreds of kids were fooled that they were going to push the ON switch – at 6:46:30 p.m. PST in historic Fremont Park. some women thought the tree was decorated with lights better than last (2015) year… they used fewer lights and did not put any at the TOP of one of the main redwood trees which had not been watered for over 6 months and did not receive any tree-surgeon services… go figure… 45 degree heat before 7 p.m., 6 MPH winds, some spiritied non – Christian caroling on-stage… plenty of powdered hot chocolate and a fake Santa Claus breakfast promised in the morning… Merry Christmastime!!! ~ from a warm chair across the street at Peet’s Coffee and Tea Shop #2 ~ Buck Dailey


Letter to the Appointed City Manager of “Deadwood City, Northern California” – Latino Unlicensed and Impolite Security Gooks Stationed at the Fair Oaks Senior Community Center [an alleged coordinating agency for services for the poor, elderly, disabled, immigrants, etc.]

Dear Madam City Manager:

I was threatened by the presence of Mr. Andrade, one of the three suspect City employees at Fair Oaks.

The two psuedo-security gooks/geeks/ Latinos/ whatever, too.

You are on-report Madam Manager.

Your lack of action weeks ago has been noted, as has your “no comment” from yesterday – prior to the report to the County Sheriffs who responded to my phone call from Fair Oaks, owned and managed by your city since ____.

occupy mighty mouse

p.s. Your city motto cannot be substantiated by current research:

“Climate best by government test” slogan is based on one study performed during the 1900s.

What a waste of tax payers dollars refurbishing those two signs…

Why don’t you do your job or move on to another wild west town…?

by Arevik Torosian: “If”

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream – and not make dreams your master;
If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:.

If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build’em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings – nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son

What is All this Fascination with Hillary Clinton ?

Does all this political attention make her presidential?

Where are the eyes and ears of Hillary supporters?

Why do Clinton supporters ignore all the mistakes that Candidate Clinton has made over the years?!?

 

 

 

Why is she a better choice over Sanders or Trump?

O My God! I need more prayer… Can I do more, or what?!?

As I walk into the coffee shop, I hear Adele singing “Staying on the Outside”

“Hey….  {more Music toons at the coffee shop where I am stuck this morn]

 Thoughts to Myself on Another Monday Morning

“A Thousand Years…”

How can I stay there. For just a 1,000 years?

Can’t say where. The landlord wants practically no one to know I am living there.

 

Even Dave Peterson says foul things about the landlord

…but it is affordable financially, but psychologically?

Maybe I can teach her CBT?!?

 

Crying in my sleep…

Wake up later, I STILL hear crying. It is not a dream.

This is only my second night sleeping there.

 

I am now telling myself, this is the best place to be.

Not the crying lady’s house, but Peets’ coffee shop at Middle Street in Menlo Park.

Can’t get a SamTrans bus to take me to the #35 VTA 6:09 a.m. bus to my prayer meeting in Palo Alto.

Not one but two “Out of Service” buses passed by me in Menlo.

It is Monday and my expectations are usually at a 0 (zero) on Mondays; thus all is good.


thanks be to God!

… “I got the moves like that… I got the mooves like (Mick) Jagger…”

“This is gonna be the best day of my life…”
