Our 700th Entry: The Secrets Of Eternal Youth
Like the old song says: "Enjoy yourself it's later than you think." No doubt, individuals who are happy with themselves and their bodies will live longer than those who are depressed.

Of course, our bodies have to be looked after. How many junk food fanatics/smokers live past 90? Also, do you have a meaningful purpose in life past 65? Do you simply want to go on a permanent vacation and relax? Remember death is nature's way of telling you to slow down. It's also a change of environment and remember a "change is as good as a rest."

What about "meat and potatoes people" or "couch potatoes"? Not many of them make it past 90 either. Certain habits have to change. Fruits, vegetables and exercise serve a purpose in the human condition. "If you don't use it, you lose it?" That includes the human brain.

Don't take yourself to seriously. Not everyone is the same and we should tolerate differences in others, even extreme differences.

Have a healthy/fun life. Don't worry about what others think of you.

Land Of The Dead: The Zombies Aren't The Bad Guys
What is missing from these movies is the zombie's point of view. How did it become one? Was it sentenced to "rot in hell" by some advanced but oppressive society? What were the crimes that produced such severe punishments?

Of course, none of these questions have ever been asked or answered in a zombie movie. The usual premise is that all zombies are exactly alike and they all thirst for human blood and flesh.

In gaining laurels for the best in negative stereotyping and propaganda, the campaign against the undead wins the biggest prize.

Perhaps, zombies are simply spiritual beings who have failed to resurrect their dead bodies in a wholesome state. They, also, might be intergalactic criminals who have served their crimes, but have not been released from their prison. What is the real history behind these hellish myths?

Nightmares come out of our subconscious, but what is the source of them.

The only understanding we have on this matter is the propaganda that we've been fed by movie directors(i.e. Basically, zombies are demonically evil and we should fear and fight them at every turn.)

The true story of the walking dead has yet to be told.

Billy Graham's Last Crusade
Mood:  a-ok
The rift in the Space/Time Continuum during the 1950s would not have occurred without the help of evangelist, Billy Graham. His whole focus on Jesus Christ opened "The Door", so to speak, to incredible spiritual energy that permeates the world to this day.

The vision of a high tech society that watches over us came to the forefront in the 50s. It was as if "First Contact" was made with aliens and then forgotten about except in Area 51 where something still remains.

The mystical communications of these advanced civilizations took root in Gene Roddenberry, Issac Asimov, Robert Heinlen, Ron Hubbard, George Lucas, Kurt Vonnegut and others(e.g. myself).

Deep-seated memories surfaced from science fiction, rock and roll and Billy Graham's sermons.

If you go through entries in this blog on Jesus Christ and new age Christianity, you'll see where I'm coming from on these concepts.

There's no doubt that the energy sources reverend Graham contacted were and are real. How they might be interpreted, however, is another matter.

The Search For A Decent Job Continues
Mood:  special
I've been spending a great deal of time sending out resumes for my wife. Since she's been laid off, I estimate that I've sent out more than 250 resumes. It surprises me that she hasn't landed a quality position in her field yet because she had over 10 productive years as HR, payroll/benefits administrator in a small company.

Her bosses wrote glowing revenues of her work.

I intend to continue sending out resumes until she gets a good job. Your prayers and good wishes are appreciated in these frustrating times.

Happy Father's Day
Mood:  celebratory
I'm not a father myself, but my wife(Irene) did have three children(two boys and one girl)from an earlier marriage, so I'm a stepdad.

I'm also a grandfather(papy)to five children(three girls and two lads).

Some people might call me lucky, but I miss not having children of my own. However, working on the retirement requirements for me, myself and Irene takes all of our resources.

I'm one of the fortunate few who will receive an indexed pension for life from their job(i.e. Canada Post) but that's not the case with my wife or most people in Canada or the U.S. They invest most of our free money in a house and/or a few RRSPs. Old age pensions from governments aren't enough to retire on.

Despite life's hardships and setbacks, the world is still a great place to live and learn in.

Mood:  energetic
Do you remember guys like Tom Vu and Matthew Lesko? These were just some of the ridiculous con artists that dominated Infomerical Land. Now they can be revisited on the web anytime you want. It's really hard to understand why anyone took these guys seriously. Ridiculous Infomercial Review

A Real Gone Cat
Our cat(Mittens)disappeared(Go cat go)for three hours when we inadvertently left the front door open. We searched the neighbourhood for an hour and half, but no feline was in sight.

We left the door open and surprise, surprise, the cat appeared out of nowhere. We thought she was a goner, but the cat came back.

We're thankful our big lovable pussy returned to her home.

Today Was A Good Day For Seeking A Job
Mood:  caffeinated
My wife, Irene, had one interview today and five telephone calls from prospective employers. All in all, it was the best day yet as a job seeker.

Summarizing her credentials is very easy:
She has over ten years of HR and payroll/benefits experience. This includes ten years with a plastic manufacturing company and two years with a major retail outlet. Obviously, she possesses strong leadership and communication/learning abilities to handle the challenges of different positions.

I get the feeling she won't be unemployed very long, so if you want to hire her, the time to do it is now.

Bobby Vinton's Concert At Casio Rama
Mood:  a-ok
At an age when most people are drawing "Social Security", Bobby Vinton(age 70)is still going strong with his family(two daughters/son)and his big band.

It's hard to believe that Bobby played in his father's band during the early 50s, but when he starts blowing on the saxophone or clarinet, you become a believer. His tribute to the big bands of the 40s was my personal highlight of the evening.

He did most of the musical styles and his own hits from the 20th century.

As well as the music, Bobby liked telling dumb jokes(like the inventor of the mini-skirt)"Seymour Heinee". His voice needed some electrification to meet the demands of a large audience but with all the adoring female fans in attendence. Who cares?
Three and a half stars:

It's Hot. It's Humid And It's Stinks
I'm talking about the weather and the garbage strike in Brampton, Ontario. Something should be done about these problems.

Call on the great weatherman in the sky or Brampton City Hall to get the show on or off the road.

What do you think of garbage pickup from Rocky Racoon and friends? Cheap but not efficient, eh?
