"Holy Spirit"

No one here knows me
Surely no one gives a damn
If am a vagrant or a rich man
No one will ask me if I am

I am just another rider
Going from place to lonely place
But no one gives me credence
And no one will remember my face

Would you really think to look for
Something gold beneath these clothes
Or allow me through their front door
Instead of shouting I should go

I am just another rider
Going from place to lonely place
But no one gives me credence
And no one will remember my face

So like all you careworn sinners
In railcars sleeping with the mice
Be mindful as I'm tending my flock
Look not for salvation from the winners
For my name is Jesus Christ

I am not just another rider
Going from place to lonely place
I am here for your salvation
And return you to God's grace


Inspired by all the little miracles that happen everyday and by the growing number of people who we ignore each and everyday. Not knowing that one of them may sit in judgement on the end of the line. Be kind to someone every chance you get. Kindness makes this life worth living.


Make America great again depends on getting America to 'Make' again

A treatise on the wonders of aging

One of the blessings and curses of aging is digestive issues.
Whether you are going a lot more or going a lot less does not matter, you will be spending more time in the facilities. Now when you have kids your time is limited, either you beat them to it or you get in line. And by the time the last one went the first one is back and having to pee. Or it's the spouse. However when you get older you are more likely to have more than one facility and, if you are male, no one is in a rush to go in there if they know you have been there. So since you more time in there you can watch YouTube videos of some guy that invented a high speed log splitter, your favorite bands fan uploaded terrible audio video of the week or any number of fun things. Or you can read. Who knows you might even learn rocket science. You might invent some new plumbing. You might prove the Big Bang theory. Anything is possible. See, even hemorrhoid's might have a positive outcome. Yeah, you might even invent paint that won't peel or a bidet that doesn't use water.
So be thankful for what you got. And remember, it's actually better to leave a shit than to take one.......

"Blue Dream"

Soaring beyond
valley and stream
The clouds above
The mountains on high
To live
To dream
To fly

Carry me past
all of my woes
Carry me past
all of the oats
I have sowed

Take me where
I have never been
Show me
what I have
never seen

Reveal a place
to make a new start
A place to rest
A place for my heart
To live
To dream
To fly


Thanks to Joe Satriani for the inspiration

Just to get an early jump on wishes for all of you and the fact that someone I know somewhere is already into Thanksgiving day!

On this American Holiday celebration of Thanksgiving:

I wish you and yours have a wonderful day,
Full of peace dear God if you may
Keep one and all both safe and sound
well fed and happy with bellies round
All of those that keep harm at arms length
continue with full hearts and at full strength
All of those with less than most
God please provide them with a gracious host
Music in the air for all to hear
to bring smiles to sad faces and grins ear to ear
So dear God, this is what I pray
and give thanks to you this Thanksgiving Day

We are but a nation of the exiled, homeless, and unwanted. Here we have made a home, tolerant of all but the intolerable, cherishing what should be cherished, nourishing those that should be nourished, caring for those that should be cared for. - Me -

New from BlastraBrainica comes the perfect prescription for political decisions. Don't know who to vote for? Bleeding hearts or Uber rich wage naysayers? Well we have a pill for you. Ask your doctor for a prescription for "OhHellNo". You will not care one bit either way, be apathetic to all, and not give one whit about all those wacky private server emails. Yes you, Mister and Misses Joe Average American can take "OhHellNo" today and breeze clean through the next year!

Warning: Side affects may include happiness, smelling of roses, massive savings on electronics and media, loss of health care, taxes moving either direction but something else going up in an equally alarming manner, sane and happy discussions at family functions, reversal of unlike's on social media, and too many other things to list within the confines of this company and the internet's servers.

Ask your doctor today!

No insurance? Too bad, so sad, $595.00 per tablet, gold bullion or Krugerrand's only, not any of that paper crap (are you crazy?? we aren't). Slightly lower in Canada.........

"A guitarist's search for atone" 

Forgive me father
for I have sinned
My time
in the confessional
did begin
Unrolling a list
reaching down
to the floor
Maybe ten thousand things
maybe more
So as I finished
my lengthy scribe
3 million Hail Mary's,
Our Fathers,
did he prescribe
So as I left
I sighed ok
It will take
40 years or more
if a day
And besides
all that
All my friends
went the other way

Dedicated to friends, foes, loved one's, sinners, saints, Fathers, Sisters and the holy spirit who probably finds all of us rather amusing.

Public Facility #1

Been in ten thousand
unclean restrooms
In this land
from coast to coast
But the ones that are in truck stops
Are the ones I hate the most 

I10 20 40
U.S. 80 for sure
I35 55 95
and more
Now I don't want to come off
as sounding really mean
But how much would it take
To keep just one thing clean

Typically out of gaskets
Thankfully not out of tp
But a pleasant aroma
well that was not to be
Is freshener too costly
Or the big mint
where I pee

So I endure these things
While out on the road
And have to unceremoniously 
drop a load
Folks before you leave
I have one favor
To ask
Please flush the commode
When your done wipin'
your ass.

And oh yeah 
Please refill the soap
