St. Dan Louis’ Web-Blog from Estella Vista, West Texas (written by St. Danny in 2009) fyi: DLD passed away on 11-22-2016

My older brother had a thing about numerology, anniversaries (Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories, etc.), justice particularly for minors with a real rough childhood, and establishing a safe haven for those that could benefit from “getting away from it (rat races) all” where the southwest Texas desert air and mountains offer a respite that will last an improved lifetime.

 

If you have never red any of his writings, now is the time to also pray that Dan L. has no more time to spend in purgatory, which he believed was only a Catholic myth. Enjoy his style and messages often hidden within the paragraphs and diagrams:

Reno Nevada – Shameful Reno, Nevada and Their So-Called Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada (CCNA)

Coast-to-Coast Risk Management

Glenwood Springs, CO 81602-0777

Woodside, CA 94062-2448

 

Intro: Home is where the heart and body are; therefore the Reno ghetto Record Street neighborhood is home to hundreds of people of mixed races and religious views.

 

Fact and Question: The Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada (CCNA) have been given 100 grand for the homeless issues. What is this going to be used? I suspect almost nothing will filter down to any homeless people.

 

NIMBY = Not In My Backyard!

NIMBY = Not In My Backyard!

Why did the City of Reno do this? What else is the City of Reno doing, if anything?

 

In my opinion, the City should have given the Resource Center more than $100,000.00.

 

My experiences with the Roman Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada have all – all – been negative. Furthermore, I assert that they have been using the name of Saint Vincent in-vain!

 

St. Vincent DePaul Society is not affiliated with the CCNA.

To Be Queer is One Thing, To Be Both a Pervert and a Bully is Another

dateline: January 6, 2015

in the Cal-Neva Casino in Reno Nevada

I heard a dog barking, so I went to the bitch’s aid.

Her owner with a somewhat male companion were attempting to silence the annoying Chee-wa-wa by sticking her bony fingers in the dog’s mouth. Her apparently transsexual friend told me that she/he would kick my ass if I didn’t leave the casino.

The skinny ‘friend’ called me the f-word twice as I was walking away from both ‘girls’ and their two lap dogs.

Should I have called the SPCA?

Look Toward Dr. Dog For A Better Night’s Sleep (Zzzzz . . . )

     Take some lessons about sleep from a dog; although pawing your mattress or circling before lying down probably won’t help.

 

     Ingesting too much cola, coffee, chocolate or caffeine late in the day?

     Nope. Dogs don’t take any of that stuff.

     It is so important to get enough restful and deep sleep. After all, people spend one-third of the hours in the day in bed. Let’s not subject ourselves to environments that are not conducive for sound sleep. What we do before and after sleeping matters, too.

     Your dog would not forget to stretch after getting up, so people also should do so.

     Sleep benefits memory and other cognitive skills, prevents heart disease, cancers and diabetes, eliminates fatigue, promotes longevity, reduces arthritis and inflammation, affects weight control, helps moods, boosts the auto-immune system, and removes under-eye circles.

     Worry and stress? Look at your dog’s face. Does she look worried or stressed out?

     Many believe to give up worries to God (He’ll be up all night anyhow).

 

     Up too late Pooch? Naw!

     Not sleeping through the night? Canines are alert then can fall quickly back to sleep.

     Waking up too early? No bother, an early morning shut-eye can be taken before work and play.

     Too much excitement and anticipation in your late nightlife?

     Now, now, just settle down before bed.

     Dogs know how to chillax. Canines are uncanny how they can relax. Exercise earlier in the day. Plan activities earlier. No need to exercise hard late at night.

 

    Particularly like a little kid, getting on a bedtime schedule is a fine idea. Initiate a healthy nocturnal sleep cycle. Special schedules for graveyard shift workers can be arranged, too.

    Like a dog, be particular about where you sleep. Make a dry, warm “den” for yourself that offers a great feeling of security. Darkness and quiet are two other objectives.

     You gotta’ get assistance from your healthcare professionals if there is a medical reason (e.g. medication side-effects, idiopathic (lifelong) sleep disorders, withdrawal effects of drugs or alcohol, sleep apnea) that is causing insomnia or unproductive sleep. If your dog was sick, you’d take him to the vet. Right!

     Have you ever heard of a dog going to the vet for insomnia? 

     On the average, dogs sleep 14 hours a day. If people can just even make it 50%, success can be achieved with all the benefits. Our goal is seven to nine hours overnight.

     Dogs adapt quickly finding comfort in the immediate environment and adjust their sleep pattern. Humans should be smart enough to do the same.

     Good night. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz . . .
