I am a very spiritual person and try to always understand that no one is bad or good, but merely trying their best to understand and live their lives to the best of their knowledge.

I have two wonderful adult children, who are living their lives to the fullest and best for them.

I live in a small Indiana town with my cat Tamika. I have sold 6 short horror stories that were published in 2013. I published a Kindle book anthology of my horror stories in fall of 2013 and have recently posted my 900th post on my blog. I am working on a novel and trying to get healthier.

Who’s in Charge Here?

The above pic has nothing to do with the post below.  I just realized that here we are taking a pic of Dad and Sis together and now, they are both gone.  Just seems sad, but also fine as my new spiritual alignment has me know.

Anyway, I was lying in my bed, propped up on pillows, watching a show on my tablet (as I often do), and decided to stop.  Now, I wasn’t certain how long I would stop, so, instead of putting the tablet out of the way on the headboard, I sat it about 1/2 way down the bed on the right side.  The cat has the top right 1/3 of the bed to herself, to sleep (and to annoy).  I didn’t want to put it “on her territory” so, the middle to bottom 1/2.

She came in a few minutes later (never figured out how she really knows that – almost scary) and jumped up on the bed, looked around, and went STRAIGHT to the tablet and stood on it.  I pushed her off the bed and said, “No”.  She climbed back up a few minutes later and repeated her actions.  I repeated mine.  There was a small war brewing here and she didn’t know she couldn’t win it (or…).

She came back in once more and walked toward the tablet.  I smacked her a little on the backside and said, “No”.  When she didn’t move, I repeated these actions.  Then, she looked at me, moved up and put her paw so that it just touched the edge of the tablet, and she lay down right there.  I am fair.  She wasn’t really breaking my rule.  She stayed there for quite awhile – I think just to prove her point.

So, who’s “really” in charge? and just how smart is this cat?

Yes, this is an old picture.  She is older and, hm, wiser…

Namaste,

Take This Book, Please!

I have signed up for Amazon’s free kindle books (or $0.99) daily in my email.  This wonderful (most of the time) app sends me an email a day with a decent selection of free and 99 cent kindle books on the Amazon site.  I browse them in about 2 minutes, look at any I am interested in, and then buy a a book or delete the email.  Simple and rather pleasant.  What if I do have well over 300 books now on my kindle?  What if I only read about 12 a year?  So, that means I will always have a lot of variety reading and always need a kindle (Thank you Amazon!).

Truthfully, I love my Fire Tablet.  It lets me browse the Internet when I am out or not in my computer room at home.  It also allows me to read my kindle and play “Words with Friends,” Scrabble, and (I hate to say it) play Candy Crush(hey, I am on level 235 and have never spent a penny, don’t pick).  Anyway, this morning went like this:

I was on my PC and had just found I had, somehow (stroke-related?) not checked my email in 3 days, so I had over 200 of them.  I went to my day’s kindle book list and found a Zombie Apocalypse book I hadn’t seen before for $0.99.  I logged into Amazon to see the book and read a sample.  Today, it was heavily advertising Audible (a book voicing app) and offered to read a sample.  I clicked because I couldn’t see a place to read a sample and started laughing then almost gagging.  The man who read the sample sounded as if he was learning English as he read.  Seriously, I only listened to 4-5 lines because it was so bad, I couldn’t or I would not have bought the book even though it looked quite good.  He was terrible.  I thought that if he was an example of Audible’s reading style, I hope I never go blind and have to use it.  My daughter uses Audible and she loves it, so, apparently, this guy was just a poor example or, perhaps, the best they could find for that particular book.

Anyway, great way to wake up in the morning.

Enjoy your day.

A Life of Total Bliss?

I have been stating the last few weeks that “All things are perfect” and “All things work out in the end”.  Now, I truly believe both those statements.  But I made a comment on another blog that I have been very irritated this week and things have gotten to me.  So, does that negate everything I have been saying?  No.

I am in control of what I concentrate on in my thinking.  I don’t control every thought.  Those come from the past and all the things I have done or said and everything people around me have done and said, plus all the TV and computer stuff I watch and/or listen to.  So, that’s a lot!

Those thought race through my head and try to take my life over all the time.  I just try, very hard at times, to keep focused on those two wonderful statements:

All things are perfect.

All things work out in the end.

Small example.  This morning I got up (well, this afternoon) and realized that I have been looking for my checks for 2 weeks now.  I do most of my stuff online, but do have to write a couple of checks a month, so a book last me quite awhile.  Anyway, I finally found a card or statement (something) that said I need to reorder checks. I began the process and when I was almost done the total was over $93 in order to get the best deal.  I didn’t like that, but kept going.  I have an app on my phone and on my PC called “Honey”.  It is supposed to comb the Internet for coupons and savings, but has never saved me anything in over a year.  It popped up and said it had some coupons to apply here.  I thought “Why not?”  So, I did.  Final total was $13.20!!! This Law of Attraction is so cool.  I intend to save and have money and stuff like this happens all the time.

So, just keep reminding yourself of my two statements and believe them and do intentions.  Pam Grout’s “E Squared” and Anita Moorjani’s book “Dying to Be Me” will explain it all so much better.

Namaste to all of you,

Scott

Barbie, Ken, soon to be a Myth…

I don’t know about you, but I grew up with Barbie and Ken dolls.  It was always that way back then and there was really no question about it.

Now, there is.  We have progressed; we have become more aware and more mature;  we are growing.

Mattel has noticed and the market is there, so they are too.

Barbie-Ken

I am not saying this is it; I am not saying Mattel is special, but this new line of dolls from the iconic makers of the sex identifiers of yesteryear is … interesting, at the very least.

Namaste,

Scott

Are We Going to have an Impeachment?

The question on most people’s mind is “Is President Trump going to be impeached?”  followed by “Who takes over?”.  I knew the answers to most of this, but not the whole process.  So, I read a very good article on the matter.  That article is below in the link.  I don’t know what’s going to happen.  According to the article no president has ever been impeached.  Three had the threat, two were not impeached and Nixon resigned. Other than that, here you go:

Impeachment Process

Have a good day, night, weekend, or whatever…

Namaste,
