Yes, dear ladies and gents, I have
returned from a marvelous Las Vegas vacation, during which I
indulged nearly 3 glorious weeks of doing nothing but what
pleased me most.
Wow... what a revelation and wonderfully revitalizing space.
Many thanks for this great indulgence go to my compatriot in arms, dear friend, loyal client, editor/publisher of www.ArmchairHoodlum.com and host for my entire visit, Michael C. Kelley. A true gentleman & scholarly left-wing nut case, Mr. Kelley regaled my senses with profound socio-cultural banter and regal patronage, making for divine conversation and boisterous good fun.
And there'll be more to come, after I get my client-list caught up...
Until then, cheers!!!!
A passion to make things whole and clean; fresh, alive and new.
All good things, I expect. Except there is a problem... Some things cannot be "fixed."
Factually, by the physicists terms, nothing in the universe is fixed -- as in "stationary; remaining in one place."
But of course this is a different definition than implicit to the phrase us fixers use. What we mean is to "make things right" and keep them in "good repair." Anthropologically speaking, it might be called "the nesting urge."
Part of the problem is that we do not innately know how to fix broken things -- which is where the illustrious talent of "nagging" comes in. But still, if we are true fixers and we don't know how to repair or clean it, we'll hire it done. If we don't have the money to hire a professional, we'll beleaguer every soul we know with "how to" questions, read books, and convene experiments entirely on our own.
Today, wanting to get a stubborn stain out of a favorite cotton shirt, I crushed some vitamin C tabs and mixed them with household peroxide, dabbed it on the garment and... it seems to have worked!!! I "fixed" it and I get a reward. I get to wear it again!!!
But the problem is that all things are not stained shirts. And even if they were, some stains defy the minds of physicists preferring to stubbornly cling to a fixed spot.
So the real problem, it seems to me, is that when we fixers can't fix something, we somehow seem to think that we've "done something wrong." That we've "failed to accomplish our mission." That we, like the stain, are somehow tarnishing the brilliance we seek.
In light of this, here's a thought to consider: If it wasn't broken before we got there, there'd be no need to fix it.
Think about that.....
Then also recognize that sometimes it takes a while of working with something to figure out that it just doesn't work...!!! It's either not what the manufacturer purported it to be, or not what we thought we were signing up for when we sealed the deal.
And this really is more to the core of the problem: That all of us fixers perhaps ought to learn how to "give things up." Just say "No thanks, I'll pass. The one who created it can clean up the mess," and simply move on.
Bearing no regrets.
HEMP HEMP HOORAY!!
Plant sprouting up in
skincare, clothes, snacks
Thanks to the growing demand for all things healthy and natural, the marketplace for products containing hemp seeds, oil and fiber is expanding as well.
Popping up in the grocery aisles and industrial research labs, the versatile plant has sprouted in everything from The Body Shop's hemp lotion to tote bags at Target and natural fiber clothing by Edun, the fashion line launched this month by U2 rocker Bono and his wife.~
Long overdue and well deserved, the humble hemp plant is at last coming into its own as a marketplace contender. For more on the illustrious history of hemp, click here.

And now, on a completely unrelated subject, here's something sent to me by Joyce, a woman I've know nearly since I was born....
