The Return of the Nuclear Family March 16, 2012Posted by digitalbrownshirt in Economics, Family.
I’m sure the media would be happy to spin this for Obama. They can say his economic policies has helped bring back the family values of the 1950′s.
Surprisingly, most “boomerang kids” don’t mind living with mom and dad. If ever there were a stigma about living with parents through one’s late twenties and thirties, the recession and, along with it, a practical dollars-and-cents outlook on life have all but erased that perception.
Of those living at home, some 78 percent say they’re upbeat about their living arrangements, according to the Pew study, and 24 percent say it’s been good for their relationships with their parents (48 percent say it hasn’t changed their relationship).
See, it’s actually a good thing to not be able to support yourselves and sponge off of your parents for a few more decades. I love my children, but I raised them to be independent creatures. It wouldn’t be good for them to move back in for an extended period. It’s kind of like welfare in that way. We want to help people who are less fortunate, but we don’t want to make them dependent on that help to survive indefinitely.

Janis likes it when I take Mo’ Money with me on a day-long trip to Des Moines. She gets twice as much done when he’s not there right underfoot. So I took him with me yesterday on a shopping mission. First, I wanted to use the Bass Pro Shops gift certificate I got for Christmas. Next, we ate lunch at McDonalds and took advantage of their play area. Massive germ factory if you ask me, but Moses had a great time, so it was all good.

So, for post #5,000, let’s pause and celebrate what America, and life, is really supposed to be about.
My Favorite Time of Year December 13, 2011Posted by Retired Geezer in Family, Music, Pop Culture.
I first saw this nice video last year. It’s a pleasant Christmas song by the Florin Street Band.

Should you ever find yourself in the position of the victim in this story, simply retrieve this card from your wallet or purse. Sometimes we all need reminders in stressful situations.
Flyin’ Brian’s office November 16, 2011Posted by Retired Geezer in Family, Heroes.
Flyin’ Brian has a new pilot job. I can’t say where he is but he has to wear a vest with a metal plate in it when he flies.
He said I could post pictures of his new ride, it’s a Puma.
Here is the view out his office window. I don’t know what all those dials and levers are for, I can identify the coffee maker and the photocopier but that’s about it.

He would probably appreciate your prayers.
We Fall Down October 29, 2011Posted by Retired Geezer in Family.
I had my iTunes on random and a song by Bob Carlisle came up. I had forgotten what a great voice he has.
I couldn’t find the VT video of the one I wanted but this one is pretty good. You don’t even have to be
Lutheran Catholic Frisbeetarian to like it.
Bob has one of the Great Voices in Music. I hope you agree.

Young Crocodile God August 26, 2011Posted by Michael in Family.
Lately, it seems to me like the IB/H2 family has been obsessing about children, mostly because of a couple of recent arrivals.
So, I wondered, what does a crocodile god and all around tough guy like Sobek look like as a child? I did some research, and struck gold.
Jubilee is 30 August 7, 2011Posted by Retired Geezer in Gardening, Man Laws, Family.
This is the show that I did the Lighting for, for about 20 years, right up until I retired. It’s still going strong.
Lots of fun memories.
Even Michael and Cathy have seen it.
Gun Safety Video July 11, 2011Posted by Retired Geezer in Ballistics, Family, Gardening.
For all you Chimpanzee owners, (I’m looking at you, Wiserbud), here’s a good safety video.
Lance, Jason and Ken were on a camping trip with some friends when Connor had the unfortunate idea to hand a loaded AK-47 to a passing ape.
