Rants & Raves

CONGRATULATIONS TO Aquinas High School for their outstanding presentation of Sweeney Todd. The cast performed this difficult score and script with great professionalism, and the staging and costumes made this a true Broadway-style production. Thank you to Director Lloyd and staff, the cast and crew, and Aquinas High School for a most enjoyable evening. Job well done students!

I FEEL RICK Santorum made a very harsh comment when he stated that having Obama re-elected would be better than electing Romney as president. To say that Obama would be the better choice is absurd. I could run the country a whole lot better than Obama.

IT BREAKS MY HEART to hear about the tragedies involving precious, little children. Children are a gift from God and deserve to be loved and cared for and have their needs met physically, mentally and emotionally.

MY GRANDSON AND I stood by the stage at the commons on St. Patrick’s Day and the two young men running the sound board talked on and on how they would “like to go burn one.” Needless to say I was shocked.

A RANT to the Richmond County Board of Education for requiring the FBLA students to travel home at 1 a.m. from their state competition in Atlanta Saturday. Compromising our kids’ safety to save a buck is unacceptable.

I JUST WANT TO RAVE about the teachers at McBean Elementary. You really make a difference in our children’s lives with how much you care about their education!

ONCE AGAIN, President Obama has injected himself into a racially charged situation without knowing all the facts.

A BIG RAVE to Davidson Fine Arts’ production of Beauty and the Beast. It was a wonderful show! All the students in the show were great; but the young man that played Lumiere, Harrison Callaghan, stole the show! I do believe this young man is as good as most on Broadway!

CHANCE AND HYDRICK Funeral Home buried my son recently. They are good people with lots of feelings for the family. They did a good job for my family.

Seems I remember a senseless

Seems I remember a senseless killing (times two} not long ago. Seems there were a girlfriend and a North Augusta police officer shot. Somebody correct me if I am wrong. Now the question is, where the heck are the Revs Al and Jesse??? If they are so concerned about senseless killings involving minorities. Come on Revs, put your mouth where you money is.

Bobby Petrino should run for Sheriff of Richmond County. He would fit right in with some of the candidates.

I guess Joe Scarborough was right .....he said if Santorum didn't get out of the race that Romneys group would burn the earth underneath him & do it in his home state.....the burning has started...ooohh that fire burns-burns-burns...that ring of fire...hahah

Sometimes I feel like a ring of fire---right here--& it isn't hot flashes either.

They can't put our mind in a box.....they don't have a clue on how to use it to the fullest.....there are some things that can't be trapped & caged....the more people try--the more we show them they are wasting their time......I can't even control my thoughts.....I need to get organized ....maybe 1 day...:)

Ha, fat chance of THAT. But

Ha, fat chance of THAT. But talking about patterns of those who comment, that's true, but we all have our views. I just wish everyone used a little more humor now and then while not taking things so serious and being so dogmatic. (Interesting word...automatic dog? Heh...I think I'm going schizo playing on words. That's a symptom.)

A few tips to help you with

A few tips to help you with learning to change your thoughts:

Be Open
Be willing to question your thinking and ask yourself if there are thoughts that are hindering you. As you are now in a different phase of your life, different strategies may be needed.

One technique to try is whenever you feel anxious or upset when dealing with someone, ask yourself why you're feeling those emotions. Or ask yourself why you reacted a certain way.

If your answer is because you want people to like you or to approve of you, then you need to keep questioning yourself as to why you feel you need to do that.
Why do you doubt yourself?
Why do you think they won't like you if you simply be yourself?

You may discover that an event from your childhood has made you think that you need to respond to certain situations in a particular way. It may have been a good strategy when you were little but if it's not working for you now, then you need to change it.

Be Aware
Don’t just automatically respond the same way you always do. Pay attention to how you react and what actions you use to solve certain issues. You should be able to see where how your behavior is creating the results that you get.

If you don’t like the results then you your thoughts might benefit from a few minor adjustments. Often just becoming aware of what you’ve been doing will change your habit.

Our difference imo...is that we don't need approval from others....we like it but it isn't necessary for our happiness in life....we have learned to make our own happy times....:)
We are happy with ourselves..

That's like when they asked

That's like when they asked boxer Randall Tex Cobb who the best boxer in the western hemisphere was. He said he didn't know, but he was the baddest man in North Abilene. I can't be serious about such an all encompassing question. It's hard enough for me trying to figure out how to save my little section of Columbia County. Let others take on this question.

One thing I think would help

One thing I think would help America....is GUT the educational system & start over....make it like a boot camp from age of 5 to 15....study-reading-learning almost all day......uniforms are needed---discipline would be swift----trouble makers would be bounced......after 10 years of that--give them freedom to think freely.....by then most will want to learn more imo.
