A Good Natured Prank

 

We were required to set the emergency brake at every delivery stop to prevent runaway accidents. This would lead to another possible prank. More often than not, someone would put grease on the underside of the emergency brakes of several drivers at once.

The driver wouldn’t use the brake until he reached his first stop, many times in isolated areas. The resulting mess was very difficult to clean up, and the perpetrators would spend the day chuckling about the presumed difficulties encountered by the victim. Most of us began carrying rags, just in case.

A good sense of humor was a necessity. It was all good natured fun, everyone laughed and no one got mad, (for the most part). It was back in the days before political correctness and people were still allowed to have fun and tell jokes, Gawd, I miss that!

Nowadays everyone is way too serious and often wear their feelings on their sleeves, just waiting for someone to insult them.

Masonry and the United States

 

It is my belief masonry prepared what is now the United States to be the last and greatest bastion of freedom on earth. Many years before Christopher Columbus discovered America, the last Knights Templars, descendants of a long line of Masonic like orders, possibly came here after fleeing France because of persecution.

There is strong evidence that several refuge Knights Templars escaped France and death by first fleeing to Scotland and then to North America. Evidence found in the northeastern United States, as well as Canada, and even into such places as modern day Minnesota and Illinois substantiate this.

The Cushman Motor Scooter

When I was about fourteen, I was able to buy a motor scooter with the money I had saved up by working various farming jobs, including baling hay. At last, I had something to drive other than a tractor. It was a Cushman “Box” scooter. I think that at one time they were used by the military during the “Big” war.

Riding the Cushman

It was in dire need of a paint job, so I tore it down and with the help of dad sanded and repainted it. I have to admit, it looked pretty cool when I was done. It was my pride and joy; I drove that thing everywhere, through the creek, across fields and even on the road as long as the road wasn’t heavily traveled.

The best part was that I now had transportation to my hay baling jobs.

Aborigine Beliefs

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The aborigines believe that when we visit a place we leave an image, and a person trained to see that image can follow some one regardless of the terrain or how long they have been gone. Their teachings show many examples of such happenings, as well as casting spells on someone thousands of miles away, the victim affected by it even though he has no conscious knowledge of the spell being cast.

The Masonic Laws of Nature

 

 

The world is changing and changing rapidly. Old values and traditions are falling as new ones take their place.

Without a doubt, many old customs need to fall by the wayside, however, we need to be careful and not throw the baby out with the bath water. Too many of the values that have supported and guided mankind throughout the ages are also being questioned and many times discarded like yesterday’s fish dinner.

If mankind is to survive and evolve through the ages, there are certain universal truths that can never be discarded. The “Universal Truths” are set in stone and often referred to as God’s Laws”, or the Laws of Nature, or “Nature’s Laws”, these laws are based not only in common sense but on the laws of physics as well.

Most look upon God’s Laws as only those mentioned in the Bible or some other spiritual text. The laws of nature refer to not only these laws but to all actions that determine and control all human life and endeavors. They refer to not only such teachings as the Ten Commandments and the golden rule but to such things as the law of gravity and the laws of actions and consequences.

Winning The Big Game

 

Our freshman year, the varsity team won a sectional game but were defeated the next game, thus ended our quest for a state championship.

It was an Indiana custom for a school to have a celebration if their team won any championship games in the state playoffs.

We never won a championship, but our team had won a game, the school administration decided we should celebrate, so they scheduled a school dance the Monday morning following the sectional. It turned out to be quite a big deal; luckily, I had worn my peg leg blue jeans and white bucks to school that day.

Is There A Connection Between Mood Altering Drugs and Transgenders

 

Recently an associate mentioned to me that when kids are given mood altering drugs such as Ritalin, it not only alters their mood but in reality, puts them in a continuous stupor.

The mind altering drugs such as Ritalin can also dull their sexual drive, as a result, some, when reaching their teenage formative years then resort to cocaine and other drugs to lift them up and make them feel good.

In today’s world, there seems to be an awful lot of people, even teen, who are resorting to becoming a transgender. 

Is is possible that because of the drug use, both legal and illegal, that their minds are being altered in such a way to make them confused about their own sexuality? 

Just a thought and I’m sure the medical community will disavow this, but maybe sometime in the future, the truth will come out.
