Does my heart good to see comments after having been away for so long. Thanks!

I have authored about 85% of this on my phone which has reversed my devices usage. Previously it was about 80/20 on favor of desktop. Note, about 90/10 in favor of phone. Whether I use WP on desktop or tablet, it always seems to work most reliably and faster on phone. Who would’ve thought!

Am interesting, though not surprising trend, is that third world countries are adopting phones as their connectivity solution at a much faster rate than computers. Makes perfect sense when you think about it.

Often I have pattern pictures with my posts. The one problem is getting them accessible by my phone which is why there are none recently.

Again thanks! I hope there is an occasional bit of interesting info for those of you who follow.

2015 Southeast Asian haze

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_Southeast_Asian_haze

I try and look at the news or something different each day. Of course I am not successful.

Today I found this item. I am posting to show how global air pollution is and what a problem we have worldwide.

The cause of this illustrates another huge problem, slash and burn farming.

Nothing we do is an isolated act.

The War Prayer, by Mark Twain

via The War Prayer, by Mark Twain.

Should have put this in previous post, but I am in a rush to go shopping so I can make chimichangas for a potluck tonight.

This is a very good summation of how we feel about War. It helps me to stay sane when all the world is against Peace.

Enjoy

What The Pope Really Said About Kim Davis | ThinkProgress

via What The Pope Really Said About Kim Davis | ThinkProgress.

I read a quick headline about the Pope saying Conscientious Objection (CO) was a Human Right. I totally agree with that. However I couldn’t find an article that had any substance regarding that aspect of CO. All I could find was articles about Kim Davis. This is not surprising. As a country, we are incredibly militaristic. Since news media supports this ( a heinous dereliction of duty to me) one finds very little info about anything contradicting that tradition. So, once again, we get an issue that will sustain the drama and divert our eyes from the prize. So, I’ll be doing a more thorough cruise through the web to see what I can find. Certainly the traditional media will NOT be the place to look.

As to Kim Davis. I go back and forth about her right to deny licenses to gay couples wanting to get married. That is an issue for me, as for many others. I have never thought gay folks should ever be denied any right granted to others. Basic Human Rights once again and also my own personal belief and experience. What I have to resolve is the seeming paradox of gay folks asking for a religious right from the same institution(s) which have been instrumental for hundreds, if not thousands of years, in persecuting and killing, and scapegoating a whole class of Humans for whatever nefarious purposes they come up with.

In time, I hope to write more, and even perhaps, do my thinking out loud here in case any one happens to be interested.

Again, thanks for following! Whether it’s one or many, it gives me incentive to keep it going.

this looks rather Catholic with the round globe in the center. Reminds me of the headpieces worn by ministers.

4 Rituals That Will Make You Happy, According to Neuroscience | TIME

In the movie, Inherit the Wind (Spencer Tracy, Samantha’s husband, Darrin. Comment if you’re old enough to remember) there’s a great line, which I am not quoting exactly here, something like, Do you think about what you think about?, which is a favorite of mine.

more quotes from Inherit the Wind

I find thinking about what we think about and HOW we think about what we think about, endlessly wonderful and fascinating. Thus, the link below.
