May Day ’18
Bon Jovi sang it best, I did my part but she didn’t. I was ‘shot through the heart and you’re to blame, she gives LOVE a bad name.
Thus she gives LOVE a bad name.
Amazing that John Bon Jovi never met the “Church Lady of MPPC”
May 20th would be Dan’s 70th birthday.
This photo is from a book called Tiffany’s Table Manners; I studied it as a young man.
In my early 40s, I taught a workshop “Mr. Manners” for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders in the Menlo (Park) Lyceum.
Not content to listen to the table talk and contribute in appropriate ways, he tried to dominate the conversation even though he had little to say. He kept talking over his wife who was trying to make good points, but was drowned out by him. When he failed to hold everyone’s rapt attention, he shifted to dominating his seating partner’s attention, and the table talk devolved into two competing tracks.
If you think I am making too much of this, I must answer that I believe you can tell a lot about people by how they behave at the dinner table. If someone serves himself overly-large portions which are inconsiderate of there being enough food for others, he will be greedy in other…

Pentecost Sunday ’18 Happy Birthday (#1975) to the Christian Church!
What we have heard (Uncle Dan would be #70 today!) and learned:
Dan and Holly. They had a “quiet classiness” that is rare to see these days.
One of Dan’s main points of advice was “don’t give people a reason to say no.” That also means not to deliberately bring negative attention to oneself.
I believe that it’s better to be lost in the crowd than to be remembered for the wrong reasons. I’ve found this important to remember when job searching and negotiating office politics.
I agree with Henderson Louis Dailey.
Sarah Bessey and Brian Mann (of TX) Said This Best [ about the Trump Naming Jerusalem as the Political Capital of Israel ]
No other country has done what the USA Executive Branch did yesterday to spark protests and violent deaths in the Middle East and throughout the world.
As usual, Sarah Bessey took what I’ve been thinking and said it better:
“I’ve had to dismantle a lot of false teaching from my theology over the years: right up there has been relearning how to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, moving towards a holistic peace that encompasses and centres *both* Palestinians and Israelis. The way the Church has turned a blind eye and a deaf ear and a hard heart towards the suffering of the Palestinian people in particular over the years is both an indictment and a tragedy. In light of yesterday’s news, I hope we will all continue to pray for (and look for ways to contribute to) a lasting peace in Jerusalem.”
We pray for peace, we try to love our enemies and we trust in God for the best is yet to come.
… on being a guardian angel… Perhaps during eternity, I will be assigned to be the official God-designated ‘guardian angel’ or ‘intelligent, powerful spirit’ for someone like my daughter or a grandchild. In the meantime, this is a role that I gladly take-on.
Nine Orders of Angels
Guardian Angels are in the Lower Third Triad to the Right
As St. Augustine stated, ‘angel’ is the name of these eternal being’s office; what they do, their role, just call me an ANGEL.
“If you seek the name of their nature, it is ‘spirit’;
if you seek the name of their office, it is ‘angel’:
from what they are, ‘spirit’,
from what they do, ‘angel’.”

Final Four in the NBA: 2018 Results in 3 of the 4 Best Teams Winning Enough to Reach Their Conference Finals
- Golden State
Pick the odd-man-out. Hint: Both the Raptors and Pacers would be better in the NBA Final Four. First, Toronto had the best season record in the league. The Indiana Pacers played to win their best-of-seven playoff versus the Cleveland Cavaliers. I believe the official on the floor did what ever they could to help #23 LaBron James win during games 3, 4, and 5. They tried to get Cleveland a win in Game 6 but the Pacers played so well that it was impossible to get that result.
The result is that the Cavaliers won by a basket in Cleveland during Game 7 of the series versus the Indiana Pacers.
May Day 2018
No not for this author but for my ex- and only wif during my 64+ years.
The irony is I thought that Beatles song would mirror my own life (you know, … Vera, Chuck, and Dave) when I attained this age of mine despite using all kinds of recreational drugs (no H or smack) during my ‘formative years’ – when coincidently I met my wif during college days in the Big Ten Conference – and engaging for pay in some dangerous and unsafe activities (fyi, I became a safety engineer in 1979 – when coincidently I married my wife near Lake Michigan – we did not have issues until we arrived in the ‘land of milk and honey’ Northern California).
You would think I’d be mildly upset that my college honey decided to remarry an atheist, who lived next door between 1995 and 2007 – when coincidently I moved to Sonoma County wine country, alone.
Naw she could not understand how elated I was that she would be able to retire next week and not have to work in a preschool daycare center until she aged to 80 or so. My vows specifically stated ‘until death do y’all part’ and I had still felt responsibility for her health insurance premiums, mortgage payments, property taxes, raising our daughter, and the re-sale value on a $2 to $3,000,000.00 house in beautiful County of San Mateo.
Fortunately, the divorce proceedings she handled her self and but I hired a lawyer only to be shafted after we’d been separated for a year or so.
What I thought was my second love of my life, was lost because Susan was so honorable that we refrained from ‘hanky panky’ until my first divorce was finalized. The time was not right for us and I suffered a broken heart.
Today, I am thinking that I would not have incurred a broken heart if my ex-wif did not drag her feet meddling with the legal paperwork and dirty-dealing with my lawyer and the divorce court judge in his chambers, no less. Dear Susan and I could not wait… I recall breaking up on the Fourth of July, no less.
Like a cat falling, I always have tried to land on my feet after losing a relationship or changing jobs.
Death is a subject which I have researched. Taking a lesson from Kubler-Ross, I should be angry, then go through denial, and now begin to cry. So I am trying to cry today so my subconscious can, as my Mom would say, “David, get over it.”
I should just write it off that my ex-wif decided on “a marriage of convenience.”
Excuse me, I am going to take a nap.
