Time for Thorns

An independent view on life.

There are days for sunny morning walks in the garden, where dew-bejeweled roses release their fragrance on the light breeze.
These are not those days. These are days of harsh realities demanding sharp answers. This is now … time for thorns.

Happy countries…

leave a comment »

The Swiss are supposedly the  happiest people  on earth.  Wealth does tend to make you happy because it helps make you comfortable.    i doubt I could tolerate the strict regulations,  since I think the USA has far too many,  and I definitely wouldn’t like the rigidity of its society.

I’m surprised the USA is as high as tenth place,  frankly.

7 steps that could save your life…

leave a comment »

Because I come from a long line of hardy realists,  I tend to assume everyone has thought about preparedness,  but in truth,  very few people have.   Since so many people have smart phones these days,  these tips  are easy to carry out,  and well worth the slight amount of time needed to implement most of them.

Third world countries frequently provide us with astonishing shots from roadways,  but  this one  leaves me speechless.

The New England Patriots visited the White House today to receive congratulations from His Oneness for their Super Bowl win,  but quarterback Tom  Brady was absent  due to  ‘prior family commitments’.

UPDATE:  It appears  Obama noticed.

Big Girl sleeps in some strange positions herself,  so I found  this gallery highly amusing.

UPDATE:  I found some more  adorable puppy  sleepers.

I love reading stories  such as this,  because it reminds me that we are sometimes fortunate in our enemies,  but I would prefer to read even more stories headlined something like “Terror training camp destroyed.”

Colorado computer killer…

No,  the man was not arrested  for shooting  his recalcitrant computer,  but for discharging a weapon inside city limits.   Sometimes I know just how he felt.
