thankful

I am most Thankful for very good friends. My friends bless me beyond what words can express. I have 4 most excellent friends. Their names are Bert, Brent, Pam and Doug. I may soon be adding a new friend to that list by the name of Sue.

Bert is always there when I need a friend to talk to and to Love. She is family and it is a honor and a privilege to call her friend.

I have known Brent since high school and He is another friend I can talk to, to a point.

Pam and Doug are a married couple I have known since I was 16 (almost 30 years ago now)  I am very thankful for them.

Just thinking about these people that have blessed me so much helped to pull me out of a depression spell that I got into when I started to think about what I didn't have instead of what I did have. I am a very happy man now. I know I can call any of these friends and they will bless me even if it just saying hello to them. I pray that everyone learns how to count their blessings instead of their liabilities.

Money and material possessions are nice, but it is the kindness and Love you can only get from a friend and that you can give to a friend that satisfies the soul and heart and gives you a glimpse of what it will be like in heaven when we will always be in God's presence, being around genuine true love in its most purest form…man gets me homesick but until then, I plan on being the best friend I possibly can be to these my true and good friends.

I hope I always remember that people who love you are the way God blesses you and vice-versa.

Thought for today… Love can't be bought, it can only be given.

If you aren't on the receiving end of any, check to see if you aren't giving any away with no strings attached, or stipulations just freely give.

May God also bless you today.

Xanadu







This clip from Xanadu, just about says it all.
I googled the lyrics to "the fall" and here are the lyrics...

I see the early glow
I hear you say hello
I watch the shadows fall
I don't see you at all

It's a lie
(I don't believe it's so)
It's a lie

I see the autumn rain
Falling on my window pane
I hear you say goodbye
I see a tear in your eye

It's a lie
(I don't believe it's so)
It's a lie
Our love couldn't go wrong
How could I know I was only dreaming
And now, now that you're gone
I will go on really believing
I take the fall

I see you slip away,
Into another day
There's no-one else around
I watch the sun go down

It's a lie
(I don't believe it's so)
It's a lie
Our love couldn't go wrong
How could I know I was only dreaming
And now, now that you're gone
I will go on really believing
I take the fall

(Instrumental break)

I take the fall

I see you in a dream
You turn and start to go
I call to you once more
Guess that I'm takin' the fall

It's a lie
(I don't believe it's so)
It's a lie
Our love couldn't go wrong
How could I know I was only dreaming
And now, now that you're gone
I will go on really believing
I take the fall

Our love couldn't go wrong
How could I know I was only dreaming
And now, now that you're gone
I will go on really believing
I take the fall

Yikes!

Well call me guillable, or just plain stupid, but I broke down and replaced the home pc that fried and died with another pc. I bought a gateway refurb with 3g's ram and a thricore processor. It is just a shame that it is running windows. It is a nice unit otherwise. I spent the entire stinking weekend trying to get it running right, which I finally did on sunday night just before bed, and it required that I take the CA internet securities suite that I just paid $80.00 for and chuck it in the trash where it belongs. I had to do a system recovery to get that thing off the computer. It refused to uninstall and then totally jazzed up the system, lukily I could get system restore to work. So I tried to download the internet protection suite that the ATT from which I get my DSL from (McAfee) it downloaded and installed and wouldn't run. so back to Norton I went (humbug) downloaded a 15day trial version of systemworks and ater letting it fix around 150 registry errors, the system is now running correctly, speedily and virus free. But in 15 days I have to spend another $80.00 for the licencing. (B.S.!) I wish I had gone with my hunch and just got a Mac mini.
