I’m Still Here!

In case you’ve missed me (and why wouldn’t you?), or have been wondering why I haven’t posted anything lately, I’ve recently started writing for theodysseyonline.com. I’m still going to be writing exclusively for this blog too, I’ve just been really busy. Anyway, if you’re just needing a little dose of moonsthoughts in a slightly different ...

And Now . . . One for My Sweetie: Remember, Romance is Not My Forte 6

And Now . . . One for My Sweetie: Remember, Romance is Not My Forte
This Saturday is June 4th. It marks the 22nd anniversary of my marriage to the lovely and all-round-best-woman-on-earth, Jess, and the beginning of the 23rd year of her life sentence. Through it all, she has never complained, never whined, never asked for anything other than my love (and a new dog every once in a ...

The United Colonies of Corporate America

There is a sentiment that often pops up in a meme posted by veterans, that says something along the lines of “I swore an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. That oath has no expiration date.” Although, it is normally posted by my more right-leaning brethren, ...

What’s Wrong with Me? A Little Overdue Self-Examination 2

There is an anecdote, perhaps apocryphal, that G.K. Chesterton once responded to the question, “What is wrong with the world?” from The Times of London with the answer, “I am.” Now, Chesterton was a very, very smart writer, critic, and theologian, so who am I to question him? However, he died in 1936, and the ...

Bernie Sanders: Why I’m Feeling the Bern (As Stupid As That May Sound)

I am kind of proud to support Bernie Sanders. Granted, I’m only kind of proud because I’m having a hard time believing that there’s a politician out there that I can support, that I can vote for, as opposed to voting against the other guy. I’m a firm believer that a person has to be ...

Monday Morning: A Success Story – Sort of 8

It’s Monday Morning!!!!! Yaaaaay!!!!! Okay, honestly, I feel like a lot of you are not sharing my enthusiasm. I don’t blame you, it’s not your fault. You’re probably having a regular Monday like I usually have: you wake up tired, drag yourself out of bed, stumble through your ablutions, probably cut yourself shaving, remember that ...

Thanks, and A Shameless Plug 2

Thanks, and A Shameless Plug
First, I just want to say thanks to all of you who were gracious enough to read and share my latest post. When I looked a few minutes ago, that post had gotten over 5,000 views, and total views for the entire blog were well over 6,000. That’s just since last night, and, I believe ...

The Real Rich Mullins, Shameless Namedropping and the Cult of Personality 102

The Real Rich Mullins, Shameless Namedropping and the Cult of Personality
  This morning I got up, got all the critters fed, and sat down to check my e-mail. Oddly, there were new comments on a post I wrote about my brother Rich Mullins a while back. When I checked the stats on my blog, that post had gotten over 200 views today. Now, that particular ...

Adventures of a House-Husband: Christmas Edition 2

Merry Christmas everybody! Right now, I’m sitting here feeling sorry for anybody who isn’t me. Last night, in an effort to minimize the cooking over the next couple of days, I whipped up another huge batch of Slopbucket; arguably the greatest and deadliest meal known to man (the recipe is in another post entitled “Adventures ...

A Simple Solution to Today’s Problems

All day now, actually, for the last two days now, I’ve been trying to write a post on capitalism. Before you panic, I was neither condemning nor condoning it, just discussing it, with a couple of ideas/suggestions that I thought might make it work a little better. I had in my mind a very measured, ...
