Oh by the gods Mondays suck.

Starting the second week on the job and I pray it's not as bad as the first week.

this job kinda sucks, but I will get over it. I certainly have had far worse jobs than this. The folks here are nice enough, it's clean, and its seemingly pretty safe. I don't get paid a whole lot, but then who does these days?

I would say life is good it I am working, lol

Mar. 15th, 2013 @ 10:38 am Welcome Pope Petrus Romanus!
Peter in Greek is Petros, meaning ROCK.

Assissi, which is where the location of Saint Francis (Francis of Assisi) which is also know as Rocca Maggiore which means BIG ROCK. ROCK = ROCK

He was also born in Buenos Aires, but of Italian immigrants....meaning he is Roman by decent.

But going back to the name he chose, Francis. Francis was also an Italian, and his full name was Francesco di Pietro di Bernardone.

Please note the Pietro which again means Rock, is translates to Peter.

So there ya go, the 112th Pope is Peter the Roman and will be the last Pope...

Woke up with a dreadful headache that black flag does not seem to be helping with... But will get better, as the fire is rekindled and the stove almost has my coffee done.

Yesterday I found a forgotten bag of coffee... Creamy Hazelnut. It's left over from my birthday where everyone got me coffee.

Which was a good thing as I am getting tired of the generic coffee we have been getting.

Today I have to pull wood up to the house from the old shed, which will suck, but is part of life I reckon. Also plan on working in the root cellar a bit, as it needs cleaning.

But enough about me, lets talk about you...

Inner Rhythem: Black Flag ~ Can't decide

LyricsCollapse )

This song comes from the way back... as in like 1983/84 and has been a major driving force in my life ever since. It was the main reason I was happy in school, the main reason I was giddy out of school, and most importantly why I always wear a smile.

Though this is not to say that I have been living a lie, far from that... I have always been rather happy, I blame it on being borderline hypermanic...which I truly was up till the moment my Grandfather died. Its been down hill ever since... but it's been a slow decline, lol.

On many levels I am happier now, truly happier, not just strangely euphoric. I love my life, I love my wife, I love my home, my daughters, my pets, my farm life... I love everything about me.

But still this song lingers, adding a tweak to any frown that happens to creep up. Adding a smile where a smirk would be. Adding laughter where there used to be silence... as to me this song is a yearning for happiness. Something that should be strived for. Especially when you do not know what else to do....

If this song could be summed up in ONE word, that word of course would be...


And what better word is there than that?

So rather than sitting around wondering what to do, rather than sulking, smile. It does not matter if you can explain it, it doesn't matter if they will understand it... but a smile, any smile, leads to a genuine happiness that may or may not be explained by normal means, and that is something you will never find in any store.

other then the random spam comments in older posts, what are the current flaws with LJ these days?

Facebook is just making me madder and madder with all the changes they keep making, and that they keep reverting my prefferences and settings to things I do not want. I've had enough, so figured I'd come back here and give LJ a second chance... maybe.

So what are the issues with the place these days?

Currently I am on a PLUS account, so if you know of the troubles with that, lemme know that as well. I could consider a paid account, so the more info the better on all levels.

Jan. 25th, 2011 @ 10:04 am Adding a forum to my homesteading site.
Current Location: Delano, Tn
I am seeking to start a forum for my homesteading site (www.homesteading.us) and have tried several free forum platforms but dislike most of them for various reasons. The only forums that have everything I need would be ones I actually need to pay for. That's IPB, which I do not really care for from a members viewpoint, and the other is vBulletin, which I actually like all the way around (cept maybe price).

Its current price is $195 without any bells and whistles, and I have only about half of that, so I was hoping to find a select few people that would be willing to help come up with the other half. This does not include the annual hosting (which will need to be increased with the addition of a forum) or the domain name (which I we actually have anyway because of the main homesteading blog).

If you would be willing to help out by any means let me know.

Graphics, web design (Actually, server side, and/or front end experience with vB are pretty much a must). Mods will likely also be needed, but I am holding off at this time (and will likely promote members that seem worthy).

Cost is really the big issue, so I am going to offer up Gold Memberships for full price, but with extended benefits.

The price for gold will initially be set at $20 and will be for one year, but if you are willing to take the chance and pay before the forum is actually set up, I'll double that time! (In fact, if you wish to pay more then $20 I'll double any time offered, as in, four years for $40). So in effect I will actually give a full year of Gold Membership for $10, which generally would only last 6 months.

The perks you will get are as follows...
- Custom User Title
- Access to the Benefactor Forum
- The ability to 'vote' for changes
- Larger Avatar
- Ability to upload/download attachments
- 500 Private messages
- Ability to ignore PM quotas
- Thread prefixes (read more)
- Larger profile image
- Board Member ‘rank’ title
- ONE name change (optional)
- The ability to create Social Groups
- You'll never see ads on the site

I am also pondering having a silver membership which would be less then what you'd get above...but I'll not put that into effect till the board is up.

Another usergroup I have been considering is Plantinum, which would have all the above perks, plus access to the moderators social board, and greater input into the site. This membership will likely be set to $50 annually, so if you are interested, let me know (and I'll again, set it for two years rather then the base one year).

Additionally, ANYONE that donates ANY amount will be notified once the forum is started so that you can help set the place up by giving board suggestions and additional input on things like skins, images, and the like.

Again, I can not do this until I can get at least 5 or 6 members...so you can either pay now and hope for the best, or shoot me a note and pay once I have collected enough members. If you pay me now and I can not get additional members in a month, I'll send your money back. But please do consider this, as I think the addition of a forum will greatly help...

Check them out here: Tellico Fish Camp

The offer all you can eat fish, which includes a free Sweet Tea for $10.95 which by the taste is well worth the price!

Though, honestly with this cold weather I am currently enjoying their special of Tomato Basil Soup, with a three cheese Grilled Cheese, served HOT as to help warm the bones.

So if any of you ever plan on visiting East Tennessee and need a good place to eat, look them up!

Ever have one of those days where nothing ever seems to go right? I have, in fact, have them all the time. Well recently I had some issues with one of my email accounts and so I looked up the FAQ provided on the site and could not find the answer, so I tried to use the contact form to get my questions answered. Heh, they emailed me the solution... sadly, the issue I was having was that I could not get my inbox to load (LOL) so how the hell did they expect me to get the answer if I could not access it?

At any rate, I found the answer on an  e-mail forum so YAY!

I got into my inbox to find the answer they sent me, which by then I didn't really need it so I marked it as spam (LOL again).

That email site was pretty cool, though I didn't make an account there, as I found my answer using a search... but if you ever have email trouble, then check them out, as they can give you the needed answers to email problems.

I hope I helped someone,

- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year.
- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry. I may draw or paint something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

A week before my birthday Cyndi and I were given some pretty bad news that I am not currently going to talk about, but it's bad and bad in a life altering way. The news, for the most part, ruined my birthday which is really hard to do as its the one day a year that I claim as MY DAY and was the first MY DAY to ever be a bad one. The news escalated on X-mas eve, once again ruining one of my favorite days of the year... was Thanksgiving ruined? Heh, sure, but that was pretty much our fault for trying to slack off and not cook, lol. (NOTE TO SELF: Thankgiving dinner at a buffet is a BAD idea). News Years eve we had to work on the issues at hand, which all but ruined a night a drunken fun with the family. What is the next most wonderful holiday? Heh... that would be MY DAY which wont be around till October, so here is to hoping that one is not ruined.

Once this is all said and done I'll give a real update, but until that time, I am sorry if I am an ass to you or yours, distant, dismissive, or otherwise not myself.

Life is pretty bad at the moment, and while we are close to the end of the problems at hand, it still could potentially be a looooong road. So forgive me.

Dec. 11th, 2008 @ 08:39 am Looking for shop owners
Current Location: Mickey Mouse's Clubhouse!
I am trying to do a few things on Occult Corpus...

The first one is to get prizes for contests. I simply can not afford to pay for them, as the money the OC currently makes barely breaks even. So I am looking for promotional items from anyone that has an online shop. I could possibly afford the shipping provided it's not too much... but I'd rather offer something else. I can get links to the site/shop through various methods. I can start a "sponsor" page. I can link to the shop in the various contest threads. I can even place a link at the top of the contest forum (It'll likely be NOFOLLOW thanks to Google's policies). I can also offer a signature link on my Qryztufre account....though likely not ALL of them. Additionally, I will post the contest on the various social networks, currently OccultCorpus.info (the OC blog, which is not used as much as it should be, but that should be changing). The LJ community here (that does have a few members). And I am working on getting facebook, myspace, and a few other networks up and running. Not to mention the outgoing feeds and the links those can potentially generate. The follow status on these last ones will depend on the individual sites. Lastly I can offer Gold Status to anyone offering anything...it's not much, but it's something I can offer.

Secondly, I am looking for incoming links to the Corpus through various sites. The details of such a link can be worked out with me personally, thought there will not be a sitewide link exchange on the part of the OC, unless the incoming link completely rocks... I am trying to keep the OC as ad free as possible, and currently only GUESTS see any ads at all.

So if you can provide a link, or a promotional prize, please contact me here, on the OC, or through Email.

Perrin was watching something on TV, well, half watching... some dumb show that I had no real interest in. When it was over, I happened to be in the kitchen getting coffee and heard him go OOO OOOH! blah blah Power rangers something yada blah blah yada and chuckled to my self. Walking back into the living room with every intention of CHANGING THE CHANNEL I noticed him completely entranced by the television. He was sitting in his little blue chair just staring at the tube in complete awe as real life monsters battled for good an evil. I didn't have the heart to change it. Once it was over I asked if he wanted me to find something else to watch and he said "yes, power rangers" so I gave a brief sigh and said I don't think it's on any other channels. He was about to cry when we both realized it was on again... so there he sat. A complete hour enthralled by b-movie quality antics and bad acting.

I am at Amanda's house today, as the homesite is simply too freaken wet to hang out at. Most of the work I need to do requires it to be rather dry outside or requires me to have another adult there incase I cut off a limb or fall from a great height, so heh... I'm here doing the computer thing *YAY 4 MEH*

While I'm here on a highspeed connection I thought I'd take the time and fill in a few blanks to a site that I start months ago. The site in question is www.homesteading.us and is the account of how Cyndi and I have been doing on the new house. It's eventually going to go through the entire process step by step, but sadly only two steps have been covered at the time of me writing this.

In the future, I am planning to come over here once every week or two and do more updates there, here, the OC, and everyplace else I visit. I miss all of you guys and it'll be nice to actually be on a connection that will actually load LJ in a reasonable fashion (my flist takes 15 minutes to load on dialup sometimes).

I am in Michigan for two very long weeks. I came up here with my mother and had to leave the woman I love the most back in Tennessee...

Seeing my grandmother has well been worth it thus far though, as I have not seen her for a year and a half and the last time I saw her I thought it would be the last time. So I am glad I got to give her a great big hug one more time. We got Lake effect snow in Holland (8 inches) so we didn't get out for a day and a half while I was there which meant no site seeing...but I did make it to a shop to get another wooden shoe for the garden.

Now I am in Battle Creek at my brothers house. They are good people! I have gotten the chance to see my Friend Laura which is good, as I miss her & her family. Cody (my nephew) is supposed to pick me up shortly so I can hang out with him, and Bryan (one of my best friends up here) is supposed to come & pick me up this evening so I can hang out with him and his daughter. I'd also like to be able to see Scott and his Mother, but am unsure if I can make it over there before I head south again.

I miss Cyndi A LOT, I also miss Perrin and Cletus... it will be good to get back home.

Oct. 18th, 2008 @ 11:46 am Dear Father...
Current Location: Unknown at the moment
Mental Status: contemplativecontemplative
Inner Rhythem: silence
My biological father is nothing more then that... a sperm donor. He was an abusive drunk that was hauled away when I was three. A year or two later he sent my brother Rick a birthday gift with my name on it. How could he forget MY birthday? I was born on his birthday *sigh* When I was 16 I tracked him down without telling my mother where he was at (so she could not get him for his 13 years back child support on three kids) so I could talk to him. What he had to say was pretty much NOTHING. I gave up on him, change my last name to my Grandfathers name (because he was the last in his line with three girls) and carried on my life fatherless. When I was 28 my Grandmother (his mom) died and my father went to her funeral....again, he had little or nothing to say. I made it a point to let the family know if he wanted ANYTHING to do with me HE had to call. I got calls from family to go to parties, reunions, and the like, but HE never called... I'll be 36 tomorrow and still have not gotten that call...

In that time my mother was single for much of it, though she did date a few times. He boyfriends were just that...boyfriends. They didn't do much with me, or even talk with me for what mattered. One of them she even married, he was likely one of the best of them, though still he was far from a father, and I never once even considered calling him "dad". For the most part, I never even really liked him. My dislike was not a matter of him taking away my mother or whatever Freudian crap people may like to impose on the matter, I just didn't like the guy as a human. *shrug*

Then she met Norm, her current husband. I never disliked him, I never really knew him... when they got together I was grown with my own busy twenty-something life and rarely even talked to her in that point of my life. To me, he was just some other boyfriend of my mothers...When I moved down here to Tennessee I talked to them even less and didn't think much about it one way or the other... but a few years later (last year) they moved down here, just down the street in fact. With them so close I came down often and hung out. That was when I actually got to talk to him. I actually liked him, heh, he was (and is) a gruff old bastard with a sense of humor that can often be taken as offensive, but we had things to talk about, things in common, and at times, we often did things for each other, and more importantly WITH each other. This has been the first time in my life I've ever had a 'father figure' in my life that was actually IN my life... I'm not sure how to take that sometimes, as I've never had it before...

Over the last few months, while Cyndi and I built our home, he and I did two things... first, we grew apart in some ways, as I would have to put my home ahead of the things he and my mother wanted/needed. Though, in another way, we grew closer. I would often take a break from working on the house and go over to their house. I'd leave Perrin inside while I'd site on the porch with him and talk. And sometimes, when I needed to climb a latter or use the chainsaw he'd come over and make sure I did not kill myself. More and more like a father this man has become, and still I'm not sure how to take it, as I've never had it before...

And even more recently, when I was likely in the greatest need in my life, he was there with sympathy, respect, kindness. No gruff jokes, no cynicism, only a pat on the back, a hug, and the words, "Chris, it'll be OK".

Norm, when you read this looking over Mom's shoulder tonight, know that you are the closest thing I've EVER had to a father, and while I'm not sure how to take that, as I've never had it before... Know that it's true, and I am grateful that you are a part of my life.

Many thanks from your son,
