The Undisputed Truth – Smiling Faces Sometimes (Tell Lies)
Today’s Quote: “The longer I live the more I see that I am never wrong about anything, and that all the pains that I have so humbly taken to verify my notions have only wasted my time.” — George Bernard Shaw
Oh, how I enjoyed sleeping late today. Actually, I enjoy sleeping late any day but the weekends are the only time I can really indulge myself. There seem to so few of life’s little pleasures in which I’m able to indulge these days. I take them when I can.
This morning I dreamed I went to my great-grandfather’s house but instead of the simple farmhouse I know, it was a large structure, almost like a castle with towers and spires. The living room was huge like a great hall or a cathedral. The house had several levels with a lot of rooms. From the air it looked somewhat like a castle sitting in the middle of a vast estate. The family living there graciously allowed to explore the house at my leisure. I have no idea what this dream means. I’m surprised I remember this much detail.

I didn’t get any of them although I probably should have known # 1. Barry White’s voice is just incredible. I never heard of half the people mentioned in today’s questions. It then occurs to me that Aaliyah, Ciara, Ashanti, and Randy Jackson are inconsequential, unimportant, and not worthy of my interest. Those three qualities are applicable to anything having to do with American Idol. Do you want to know what’s wrong with American culture? Watch American Idol.
