New Yabberzian To Welcome

Dan Barker is a brand new Yabberzian, a friend of mine, and a thoughtful observer and commenter. I'm not sure how active he'll be, but we'll be lucky if he is active.

I must warn everyone, though: he's a secular Yankee and therefore someone to associate with the hated atheists, so caveat emptor.

I know other dirt on him, too, but I'll leave it to him to come clean.

      Paul Salahuddin Armstrong is a brand new Yabberzian, a friend of mine, and a thoughtful observer and commenter. I'm not sure how active he'll be, but we'll be lucky if he is active.

      I must warn everyone, though: he's a Brit and therefore someone to associate with the hated Redcoats, so caveat emptor.

          So, my car is fixed. I feared the worst with my car...in the end it cost me about $100 bucks. I bought the parts...the guy who did the work, Brian Rhodes, husband of my DC...would not take any money. I finally got him to take $20 for gas for several trips to auto parts store and my place to fix...and took him and his wife (my DC) out for lunch. Also a thanks to my neighbor, Amanda, who loaned me some ramps so that my car could be worked on.

          There really are some good people in the world, and I am grateful. May I one day be so fortunate as to finally be able to be on the giving end of help!!

              To Steppenwolf --and only Steppenwolf as far as I'm concerned--

              We should either discuss things and clear the air a bit, or we should cease trying to discuss things with each other--and you can choose which.

              If any discussion is to go forward, I request that you read what I actually write before you respond, that you recognize when I'm exaggerating or being ironic (even if you don't find it funny), that you not act as if I've commented on something when I haven't (I had no idea what your internet name referred to; I just use my own name and don't worry what others call themselves unless they bring it up. I'm vaguely familiar with Hermann Hesse but have not read Steppenwolf and have not pretended I have.) I did not seriously pretend to be quoting what you had said; I was exaggerating your comments for effect. I did accuse you (not Hesse) of hypocrisy* for first declaring that you found me unacceptable as someone to exchange comments with and indicating that you'd not be commenting on my stuff further, only to return to commenting on my posts not long afterwards. I certainly don't expect everyone to agree with me, to think essays I post are interesting or correct, to appreciate my humor (often enough lame, I know), etc. But I see little or no point to someone (you) issuing insulting estimates of me, my posts, etc., just for the sake of doing so.

              We can block each other if you wish.

              *the word derives, as you may well know, from the reported words of Jesus in Matthew 6, where he described the pharisees and priests of pretending to be pious when in fact they were pompous and self-aggrandizing.

                  I attended the 2018 Diocesan Convention for, basically, the Episcopal Churches of Western Washington late last month.

                  Dent Davidson, is sitting at the piano in this video, was commissioned to write a song by Bishop Curry, they head of the Episcopal Church, to write a song. Everyone knows who Bishop Curry is-they guy who married Harry and Meagan Markel earlier this year.

                  He used to live in Seattle, so he brought to song to the Convention to perform for the very first time. Choir singers that were there showed up and saw the song for the very first time around 10am on Saturday morning. We practiced for 2 hours and went back to the Convention. We practiced an hour later in the afternoon, then sang the song in front of the attendees around 5pm that night.

                  I will say, when I first looked it over, I thought there was no way we would get it in that short of time, particularly when part of it was in Latin.

                  It was fun.

                      I haven't been on Yabberz much as life has been busy. Today I want to share the story of my Father In Law, Joseph Martin Cannaday. He passed peacefully in hospice at the age of 91. While gathering information for his funeral I found he served in WW2. Not something he talked about much. He was on the ship the Topica in 1945. He lived a wonderful life with 3 children and a wife of 63 yrs. He was the owner of the East Coast franchise of Fred Astaire Dance Studios which he sold at the age of 85. So in honor of his military service and his life of dance, I wanted to post a song.I love you dad and pray your next journey in eternity is full of love and that as your son said "You are teaching the angels to dance. https://youtu.be/RV-Z1YwaOiw Codeman is on active duty but will be sent home for your funeral.
