Sunset

Simple Beauty

The sky is so beautiful
A painting God would admire
The colors are so brilliant
Much like a raging fire

Clouds of orange and yellow
Crisscross across the sky
If I could paint it I would
But I would not even try

And then I see a windmill
A design that cannot compare
So magnificent in structure
A creation that is rare

A statue with a simple thought
A little girl with a butterfly
So beautiful and perfect
It makes me want to cry

A barn with so much usefulness
So much purpose that it has
You can picture all the creatures
A building with an important cause

A church with the sunset behind it
Is there anything more beautiful to see?
I love such simple beauty
As simple as nature’s tree!

A Red Dirt Commandment

Don't take yourself too seriously.
Don't think that somehow you should be protected
from misfortune that befalls other people.

The World of My Grandpa:

My Grandpa taught me

The most enjoyable way to follow a vegetable diet
is to let the cow eat it, and then eat the cow.

Windmill

Simple Windmill Beauty

I do so love the mornings
When out my window I peek
And there behind my windmill
Simple beauty that I seek

It doesn’t matter the weather
Or which season of the four
I so often grab my camera
And head outside my door.

The World of Mom:

My mom taught me

Don't try to reason with your heart
or feel with your mind
for just as the heart knows no logic,
the mind can't lead you to your soul.

1950 Quote

I never thought I'd see the day all our
kitchen appliances would be electric.
They are even making electric typewriters now

I love a day the sun comes out
Wind to make the windmill go

Flowers and butterflies, oh yes
That’s how my day will flow.

As reported in March 1934 newspaper
Have you ever celebrated St. Swithin’s Day?

St. Swithin's Day

St Swithin's Day, if it does rain

Full forty days, it will remain

St Swithin's Day, if it be fair

For forty days, t'will rain no more

Celebrated (or berated as the case may be!) on July 15th, weather sayings pertaining to St. Swithin's Day are probably the most infamous weather sayings in the UK. St. Swithin died 862 and was buried outside Winchester Cathedral so that he could 'feel' the raindrops when he was dead. However, when he was canonised a tomb was built inside the cathedral and July 15th 971 was the day his body was to be moved. Legend has it that a storm, breaking the end of a long dry spell, on the 15th and rain on each of the subsequent 40 days led to the monks taking this as a sign of 'divine displeasure' and left his body where it was.

There is, however, some evidence to suggest that St. Swithin's remains were, in fact, moved on or around 15th July 971 and no evidence exists to support 40 days of bad weather. Following the Norman conquest St Swithin's remains were then moved to a new shrine and new cathedral in Winchester. There was a large St. Swithin's cult in the Middle Ages though and this is where the legends and sayings surrounding his day are likely to have come from. During Henry VIII's reign this shrine was destroyed in an attempt to try and end these legends and sayings about St. Swithin. This probably guaranteed the sayings immortality and they have continued to be passed down through the ages!

Wise Words by a man named Don

Photo by John McCornack

1. Although several admitted losing abilities which restricted them from doing things they once enjoyed, no one was intentional about slowing down.

2. They knew how to keep their minds busy with constructive things.

3. I have often heard people say You are as young as you feel.

4. I am not sure that is true as most of the people I talked with probably did not feel young physically.

5. Rather, what was still young about them was their mind.

Evidence for a Hollow Moon

Photo by John McCornack

1. We know for a fact that the Earth’s density is 5.5 gm/cm3.

2. Surprisingly, the moon’s density was found to be 3.34 gm/cm3, around 3.34 times the density of an equal volume of water.

3. This was explained by the renowned NASA scientist, Dr. Gordon Macdonald in 1962.

4. He stated that if our astronomical data is to be deduced, we come to the conclusion that the interior of the natural satellite is hollow.

A Simple Redneck Poem

Dandelions

Sometime when you are out chasing a Monarch butterfly
The beauty of the landscape makes you want to cry.
