Introduction

"Love him, and let him Love you. Do you think anything else under Heaven really matters?" (James Baldwin, "Giovanni's Room" 1956)

"It's amazing what love can change.; It's amazing what Courage love can breed in other people." (Patrick Swayze, 2009)

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. - - It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. - - Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. - - It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres" .... (from St. Paul's 1st letter to the already floundering and increasingly infighting and bickering new Church at Corinth, Greece, c.60-AD … 13:4-8)

The One Greatest Commandment is to Love... its a Positive commandment of what you SHOULD DO... to Love. The Bible verses repeat that from start to finish, but nobody seems to notice anything but the "Do Nots". Eight of he famous Ten Commandments are what to not do, mostly only defining what is Sin and thus what to not do.

If you follow that One Greatest Commandment, if you do what you should DO POSITIVELY (love, protect, preserve, forgive and love) and you apologize to those whom you wronged or slighted, their forgiveness and love will continue back with them, and will continue back from and with God. And if you are that way with me too, and I with you, we will get along splendidly.

And for friends of other beliefs, you're still welcome with no grudges against you. Democracy is part of the Judeo-Christian basis (though often ignored) Proof: Joshua 24:15, ".... if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD. "

It will also help if you like Bulldogs, and Railroading, and World and National and regional archaeology and History from 10,000-BC up to last night, … and if you Love Music (see the DETAILS page). -

Also, CAVEAT ;-)) that to either get along with me, or to put up with me, you need to be able to be, or at least understand others being, Grandly Theatrical for Humor's sake, but still be a down to earth, reasonably drama-free "common horse sense" man.

"My heart is warm with the friends I make, And better Friends I'll not be knowing, Yet there isn't a train I wouldn't take, no matter where it's going." (Edna St. Vincent Millay)

"I have seldom heard a train go by, and not wish that I were on it. - - Their whistles Sing Bewitchment, more haunting than any sonnet." (Paul Theroux)

Our politics could BE WORSE -- Taiwan has an odd history of this stuff - - - Legislators from Taiwan's main opposition Kuomintang (KMT) party threw pig guts and exchanged punches with other lawmakers in parliament on Friday as they tried to stop the premier Su Tseng-Chang from taking questions, in a bitter dispute over easing U.S. pork imports. -- https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/fists-and-...
If it's a toss up between pig guts and another presidential press briefing, I'll take the swine.

And I don't mean Trump.

'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free

'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be.

And when we find ourselves in the place just right,

'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

When true simplicity is gained,

To bow and to bend we shan't be asham'd,

To turn, turn will be our delight,

Till by turning, turning we come 'round right.

--Joseph Brackett (1797–1882)

I sent this out to ya'll in 2015 with love and prayers to Paris, and Clint & Amy; and now we have Coronavirus.

Tis truly a time for sorrow, prayer, and hope, and Thankfulness; and, prayerfully, The Lord's intervention.

Pixie, kobold, elf, and sprite,

All are on their rounds tonight;

In the wan moon's silver ray,

Thrives their helter-skelter play.
