Dona Nobis Pacem - Blog Blast For Peace


Today is Blog Blast for Peace Day. Bloggers all over the world are addressing this issue in various ways. It's a serious subject. The lack of peace in various parts of the world has led to strife, hunger,  suppression, persecution and even death. 

As we think about this today, I hope you won't mind if I inject a little humour into the proceedings. After all, this is a humour blog for the most part. Nevertheless the observance of today and it's key issue is very, very important. For now, though, I hope I at least make you smile...

I suspect we're like two peas in a pod, Indigo. Peace, my friend.

You know, some might feel you treated the topic a little lightly however they would be among those who have no idea how hard it is for you to have peas plastered all over your blog. I wish you peace with no peas, mon ami. :-)

It was a real challenge Nicky but I decided to give peas a chance.

There's always room for peas humor, although in general I say peas are GACK. But I make allowance on Blog Blast Day because somehow, somewhere, someone actually likes peas.

Peace to you and yours on this and every day.

You and me both, Travis. Any other day I'd hate peas. But I decided to make an exception.

The Worst Christmas Present Ever

My pals over at Tribal Blogs are holding their first Blog Carnival today and the subject is the worst Christmas present ever. Remember Ralphie in the movie A Christmas Story ? His, as my readers point out, Aunt Clara sent him a bunny costume. Yeah, it sure sucked to be him. Hey sometimes Christmas doesn't work out for some of us. Look at my grandsons last Christmas. Things went from this... ...to this... Heh, heh. That's one picture my daughter doesn't want to share too widely. So keep quiet about it, okay? When I was a kid, Christmas was such a special time. The snow outside, the tree, the lights, the food, visiting relatives and neighbours. And of course the presents. My own kids loved Christmas too and would pore through the Sears Wish Book Catalogue as soon as it arrived in the mail, dog-earing pages upon pages of pictures of gifts they wanted for Christmas. And they were pretty lucky. They usually got most of what they asked for. Today the grandkids are lucki

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on, Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever. I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read. So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still hav
