Update on NOTEFLIX’s production of “Troubles in the Garden”: See here, our loving couple, The Multicolored Bluebird of Happiness & Mamzelle Pinkie have taken a Selfie of themselves at the beach…which they are leaving as too many humans have descended there upon. (Even the Flamingos have had it.) It was good while it lasted; but nothing lasts forever. Next week all members of our cast will have returned from vacation and filming will resume.
- THE RULE OF RECIPROCITY: “Thou must not take without giving in return.” Can you guess who said that? 1) A sign on the fitting room area in TJMAX store 2) Democratic Party tax slogan for 2024 3 ) Somewhere in the original 10 Commandments 4) Chiseled in stone by Hammurabi 5) Clarence Thomas opining on receiving gifts from friends 6) Former President Trump on Secret files found at Mar-a-Lago 7) Federal Prosecuting Attorney on former President Trump’s stealing of secret files. It does not matter who first said it; because it is a slippery slope and could eventually lead to ‘An Eye for an Eye’ type of thinking and you know where we go from there. (p.s. it was #5, Hammurabi, circa 1760 B.C.)
- STUDIES SHOW: People who engage in ‘immoral behavior’ tend to cleanse themselves with “Good Works”. This is not to say that people who do not engage in ‘immoral behavior’ do not do Good Works – that is for another study. The study I would be interested in is what those people who engage in ‘immoral behavior’ do if they do not tend to cleanse themselves. Are they waiting until they do all the ‘Immoral Behavior’ things they can do – and then do one Big Super Cleanse? Keep watching FOX news for more coverage on this.
- THE RULE OF THE AGED: Close to zero per cent of the 65 and overs do not frequent Snapchat, or Instagram. This could be because 1) 65 and overs do not like the way they look on Snapchat or Instagram Or, 2) “What is Snapchat or Instagram?” They ask Or, 3) They are all too busy moving to Florida, or playing Pickle Ball.
- INDIA’S SUNNY CLIME: This week, it was announced India is the most populated country in the world. (There are also more Eunuchs in India, than anywhere else. It is said they are a feared lot.) I have read that China will soon surpass the U.S. in the GDP arena. And in a few years India will surpass China. Does this mean anything to anybody, or is it all a bunch of numbers? All I know is I hope this Eunuch thing does not take hold.
- WAR: I got to thinking that being involved in WAR is ok if: 1) you are a Hindu and were to be slain in valorous combat and think you are coming back in some superior form – like a cow Or, 2) you were a Wahhabi and think you will sleep with 72 virgins, were you to have stepped upon a landmine retreating from Damascus Or, 3) you were a Southern Baptist and know you are going straight to Jesus’ game room, were you to succumb to wounds in foreign wars. But for the rest of us there is no RECIPROCITY. Problem is a lot of folks believe in numbers 1 thru 3.
And now a few words from MATHUZALA our Resident Rodent Guest Columnist
- How many people died from Rats in New York City in the past twelve months? How many from guns? (Rats do not have guns). Same questions for Chicago, Houston and whatever town your are in. And yet your leaders are appointing ‘Rat Czars’ to protect you. Consider joining our cause – you will be a lot safer than you are.
-Ed. note: If you were to want to know more about MATHUZALA and his plan for improving life on this earth, go to Amazon or Barnes & Noble and buy “THE RAT PAPERS”. Maybe buy a couple of copies in case you have any friends.
NOTES FROM TUSCANY
See that man on the terrace? He is writing, sitting above his beloved Piazza in Greve in Chianti, Tuscany. This is his form of ‘giving in return’. It is the best he can do.
- “Causes for WAR: Fear, Honor, Interest” (That’s it) -Thucydides, 400 B.C.
- “The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it” -Genesis 2:15. But what if we do other things with it? Do we have to give it back? Congress will probably fix things.
More from another locale next week. And a fond “Hello” to Suzanne, wherever you are.
