Lent Begins Next Wednesday

You knew it was coming...

Lent is really a very fortunate season,  it is all about preparation and attitude and discipline. We have been feasting and watching football

Time to Pay the Piper

This is how it all evens out. Even given all the recent nonsense, America is still the land of abundance, and opportunity. Most of us have never had to go without anything for longer than a couple hours.We are Americans! We have Credit Cards! We have relaxed fit pants, That is why, most of us look like we have never missed a meal.

Few of us today have the discipline, the steel, the will to sacrifice and change our world, like Dee and Maureen did.

Ok, well for myself - there has to be something more, something really unavoidable like a prison sentence, before I am going to deny myself anything. It seems Un-American to not have that third helping of Mashed Potatoes and a Snickers Bar.

Lent gives us a reason to do without.To abstain. To deny that urge. To Soldier-Up for 40 Days.

It is more than just shedding a couple pounds, avoiding diabetes, amputation, and such. It is proof that we really are in control, and we can say no to Key Lime pie for 40 days in a row! (shudder!!)

Ok, first you gotta make a list

get everybody in the family to agree, post it on the fridge, 10 items that you are giving up for lent . I am not talking Brussel Sprouts, I am talking stuff you really like, stuff you look forward to, your very favorite stuff - write them all down.

It does not work to try this alone, you are gonna be sneaking off with a Bratwurst and a box of Milk Duds in a week, and then you are REALLY going to be depressed. (You Slacker!)

So, take a deep breath, tape the list on the Fridge

Go Nuts till Mardi Gras!!

then on Feb 25th, Suck it Up and do the 40 Days

Remember, you can pig out again on Easter!


One Book, One Nebraska

by special Proclamation of the Lt. Governor


Well they dutifully proclaimed the proclamation, we now have one book in 2009 that is a must read for every true blue (red?) Nebraskan. 


Representatives from all supporting organizations pose with Lt. Governor Sheehey & Senator Pankonin

  I know my duty, and if they say read it, then I will read it.

I am stunned, it has been at least 25 years since I have sat down and read a book! 

Now, I remember why; You absolutely can not do anything else, at the same time. If you are reading, that is all you are doing. It is a very singular process, but at the same time - kinda pleasant, and relaxing!

My Book Review: She is a very talented Author, but it is a sorta  Chick Book in that it is really written from that vantage point. But, having said that, it really does make you feel connected to those folks, and their Sod Cabins sodhouse.gif

The tremendous feeling of pride, and grand adventure -

The new Wilderness and Home, that was Nebraska

Talk about toughing it out!  You guys come from good stock.

  Picture that soddie with a couple feet of blowing snow, wild Indians, rattlesnakes, grasshoppers and nothing on TV

Truly an inspiring book - best I have read in a long while
