It's all fair game. If you think of it or I do, let's talk about it or rant about it.
-Are you a God? - they asked the Buddha. - No. - Are you an angel, then? - No. - A saint? - No. - Then what are you? -I am AWAKE.

Om Mani Padme Hum
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
Matthew 7 1-6
1. Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4. Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5. Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. 6. Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Selling My Jaguar
You hear the name Jaguar and it seems that most people, around here at least, think Rolls Royce. Until you try to sell it, then they think, unrelliable, overpriced parts and service, etc. I guess. I've been advertising my '96 Jag XJ6 since August or September I think, on Craigslist, and once on Ebay, and so far haven't gotten one real offer. Lots of offers from "sellers" to advertise on their websites from Craigslist, and a whopping top bid of mid-2k on ebay, with a reserve of 4500., which in my opinion was giving it away to begin with. I don't understand it, these are cars that cost 60-70k new and I can't seem to give it away. Virtually the same thing is also happening with my 95 XJS. Had that listed for sale since late November, I think, for 10k, and not one real inquiry, just a couple of lookyloos. I know the prices aren't out of line, at least in my opinion. Is it the redneck area, upstate NY, the economy, that it's a Jaguar? I just don't get it. A friend told me if they were SUV's or pickups, or American muscle, Camaro or Mustang, they'd have been gone long ago...
Born about 15 miles from where I was living when I started blogging, at the Norwich NY Hospital. Grew up in Oxford and Tyner NY, we moved to South New Berlin. We had lived in town in Oxford until my father decided he wanted to be a farmer. So we moved to a farm in Tyner. The house burned which is when we moved to South New Berlin onto another farm. Then to Southern Calif. in Fullerton, went to Buena Park High School. My Aunt lived out there in Anaheim, had from her time in the service (WWII). My interest in the occult (it means unknown) stemmed from hearing her talk about Edgar Cayce.
Lived there for next 30 years or so. Got into sales f/t.
Moved to NY in 12/91 figuring to stay awhile and go back to Calif. Still here 18 years later, selling Rascal scooters in home in 98, then the new VA div selling to VA hospitals in 99. Still there covering 98% of upstate NY. Working on raising the money to get back to Calif. 2011, finally back to Calif couldn't take another NY winter. Living in Fullerton again, still in sales, a great job in Orange.
