I was about to start a blog on Peace, to in a tiny way counteract all the publicity that War is getting. So I remembered a bible verse about blessing the peacemakers. So I googled that up and this was the first quote I came across, that to me in a nutshell shows how out of context the bible can be taken.

"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called Sons of God...
God Bless America and all of our soldiers fighting for our freedom and protection"
That was on a Christian site. In what crazy demented universe have we been taught that a person who kills for a living is a peacemaker? I guess in a sense that if you kill all your enemies you get peace by default. Sick.

Changing Backgrounds

I've been changing all my blog backgrounds to better reflect the real me, and not some mass produced blogger template. That took some study and reading lots of tutorials before I got it right. So to save you time, this is where I got the directions that made sense to me and finally worked. I realize a lot of men are more comfortable with bland boring backgrounds. But I am a complex person and those just didn't suit me. This isn't an accounting site after all.

Why I'm Ready to Live in a Yurt in the Middle of Five Acres

I don't know what the neighbors in the front house are doing. About every fifteen or 20 minutes they throw their back door open, throw something out on the patio that sounds like a pile of shoes and then they slam the door shut. This is about the fifth time already. It's dark over there...for all I know it's burglars. But why would burglars throw things in the back yard where they'd have to toss them over the fence to get them out? Strange. I'd really like to get some sleep.
