This is how the Declaration of Independence was manifested into the law of the land. Liberty is indeed a tempest, and a beautiful one, and inalienable (for it lives in the heart of every man, woman, and child, that desire to live in freedom and determination of their own lives), and is always under threat by those who seek to govern over a people.

Let us not cede this wondrous liberty for anything any govt (or politician) would propose in the name of ¨our own good¨. Nothing offered has even the most minute portion of value compared to the liberty which we celebrate today, July 4, 2017, 241 years after the original Declaration of Independence.

Spring (official) is fast approaching...
People "up North" might argue that deep in coastal Texas we do not have winter, but various stages of their fall and spring.  That might be true, in a general sense, but I would counter and argue that it only gets 18 F (-8 C) in WINTER, which is what we exp...

Trying desperately to avoid TMTS
Yeah, that last episode of TMTS lasted longer than I expected.  Outside edge of the left foot inflamed and took a long while to cool down.  I increased walking, and pain increased.  I relented, down from four miles to 2.5 to 3.0 miles, and then slowly rampe...

Last night the skies were clear. We walked out our front door (after turning the porch lights out) and Orion was big and beautiful above us, Sirius and Canis Major always follows, Taurus was being pursued, the Seven Sisters smiled through their nebulosity, Andromeda paused in the west, Cassiopeia flipped out, Ursa Major was rising from his sleep. Nice trip around the galaxy before bedtime...
