I choose my friends wisely and these are honest people with strong convictions who believe in themselves and others and who are intelligent , philosophical, deep thinkers, with a twist of humor thrown in and who can tell a good story or a joke and keep you smiling.
Turn offs: People who come on strong, who carry drama in their lives and want to contaminate yours ! One sided individuals, those who justify their mistakes by blaming others. People who don't believe in God or second chances....
Woodstock_: Christa found this crock pot for $ 8.00 at the Goodwill pretty good buy considering the running price is $ 20 bucks ! She's cookin' a batch of chili for a test run.. and the place is smelling pretty good too !

Woodstock_: Hey, everyone ! Today was both an early and busy.. somewhat. We did a bit grocery, charity and liquor store shopping. Where I just had to stop in for a moment satisfying my curiosity of what's on the shelf. Seems I scored with a good 5 star bottle of Willm Alsace pinot blanc " according to the reviews I've read " and my Irish was coming out with compulsion of bringing home a Murphy's Irish Stout All in all it was a good day of escaping the house with the daughter and enjoying life for a while. I hope all is well with you and may all blessings small and great find you wherever you may be.
A posed question raised over evening coffee
Which opposing human philosophy is stronger — good or evil. The question is one of survival.Evil retreats when confronted with force, there is no great difference otherwise between the two philosophies. Evil is motivated by a desire for power, but the good being the gain of knowledge, usefulness and value.
Would you agree that it is not the methods but the ends that distinguish good and evil ?
Woodstock_: Good morning The winter weather has brought freezing rain producing ice covered roads and possible power outages. The district cancelled school and for me that's a welcomed relief.. a day away from toxicity. Christa baked Amish friendship bread and worked on crocheting projects and today she does the Wal Mart thing. I hope all is well with everyone and may this day be an easy for you too.

Woodstock_: Another work day of trial and tribulation, rumors and innuendoes.
I stand tall even if it means standing alone.
Woodstock_: So, anyway besides my job being a wasteful amount of both my precious energy and time. Life is good and feeling confident the future will reap huge blessings along with the new school ( haven't got the spot yet, but intuition tells me its mine ! ) Christa does the Wal Mart thing and busy with crocheting projects, I'm on the search for the complete works of H.G. Wells and catching up with the Godzilla marathon on tv. I hope all is well with everyone and may this day bring all the blessings good and small your way.
Oh, and good morning !
Woodstock_: With each day on the job it seems that my attitude, ability, character, honesty, integrity and responsibility are scrutinized and questioned. I'm submitted to accusations, lies, rumors and instructed to accept this as just part of the job. I'm not one to bend and play such a game.. Still I remain standing tall and strong in the face of adversity ( that's not easy to do as anyone knows or experienced such a thing. ) My plans for the immediate future are being set and with hope and determination this" garbage " for lack of a stronger term will be behind me. If I can just wait out the storm for the next few weeks a positive change will rise high on the horizon..
“All that we are is the result of what we have thought: all that we are is founded on our thoughts and formed of our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain pursues him, as the wheel of the wagon follows the hoof of the ox that draws it. All that we are is the result of what we have thought: all that we are is founded on our thoughts and formed of our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness pursues him like his own shadow that never leaves him.” ~ Buddha.
Woodstock_: Snow and Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey Whiskey.. keeps my bones warm and cold from settling in
Woodstock_: I'll will submit this statement in the briefest terms as possible.. Within the first year of my current employer I've been given compliments toward work well done, personal appreciation, recognition and two raises ( relatively small however, yet thankful just the same.) Within this time frame, certain changes have occurred which has given feeling of suspicion, placing distance between those in authority and myself, rumors, accusations and character defamation. Dealing with double sided people, deniability, retracted handshakes and promises that don't butter bread. For the past six months I've separated myself from this environment continuing on with work at hand yet privately making plans for attempted escape. Therefore, with hopeful and confident feeling of new prospects it's my personal belief that achieved success has been attained. My plan ? I put in for vacation time and secretly depart while working with a new employer. I become a ghost .. If you want change, you've got to be the one who makes it happen. Change doesn't do the work for you. And how has your week been ? I hope all is well for everyone and may this day bring those good and desired blessings to you both small and great !
Woodstock_: Another routine day of on the job double standards, and another night down, So glad to be home with the daughter, relaxing with my coffee and Marlboro's. Two more days left to conquer with hopes of attaining the new job I applied for this morning, Everything will be alright, because I feel that it will. New year, new beginning, new people and a new me.. Long over due.

Woodstock_: Thanks, Mouse Its getting off with a bumpy start, escaping toxic workplace environment, you name it ,, I'm getting hit with it. But I feel confident about the new job being looked at.. so ready to make the move !! Hope your award speech went well and best wishes with many blessings for this new year ! :
Woodstock_: Good morning I hope this week has treated you well, so far. On this side of the fence however, mine has gone out the window. ( that's putting it cleanly. ) Regarding work the state of moral is quite low, argumentative combative attitudes, etc.. Therefore, since the start of the new year, I've begun making other arrangements for the coming future New work place, new people, new personal goals to be met and achieved. Christa is well and doing the Wal Mart thing, keeping busy with crocheting projects, watching court tv, and smothers her father with everyday hugs. Both are everyday blessings.. I couldn't ask for more
Woodstock_: Is it easier to Hate or to Love ? Which one comes more naturally and does this hold true for all people ?

Finger5: Hate might come first, i used to know a user who hated me but pretended to love me, It was just out to get what it wanted then cast off the rulers of their island. Some people cant handle being under the control of others.
Woodstock_: The 'Soul of the World' is otherwise known as a spiritual force uniting mankind with nature as equals and governs all things as one. And is nourished by one's happiness and emotions which is also the soul of God which also is our own soul. .. something mentioned over coffee
Woodstock_: Good morning, everyone ! This new year has brought many blessings your way I hope. It has for us, one of which being the new living room table so badly needed. ( its the small things that make a difference. ) Along with new faith toward future goals, new ideas and stronger initiative. Christa keeps busy with crocheting projects, doing the Wal Mart thing and watching court tv. ( I think she secretly conspires as to how to do away with her father and escape justice. ) Where as I remain engulfed with reading, watching Nature, history and government conspiratorial documentaries. Of course, stepping out on the town for treating the daughter to lunch, shopping and stopping by the neighboring bookstore too. Along with the ups and downs which are relatively easy to bear, life is good for both of us. That of itself brings me peace, happiness and easy mind. Oh, and she loves her dad immensely ! She's the blessing in my life of this I am forever thankful. What father could ask for more ? :
Good Morning have a good day at work
Woodstock_: Good morning and thanks for the coffee too ! Heading out in a bit and going to finish up a few things on the job, come home and look over the rest of my resume, grab the thesaurus again. Next week or next month begin making those changes that will benefit me and my future toward reaching the desired goal in mind. New Year with new beginning, new me, new attitude, more intent focus on so many things.
