Found on social media (clickit to biggit): Couple that (you should pardon the expression) with the uproar last year over the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus song proclaiming “We’re coming for your children”. Kinda makes the situation clear, doesn’t it? Parents should respond appropriately to such predatory behavior. Peter
At the beginning of March, Miss D. and I received payment of a long-overdue debt. We immediately paid off all our revolving credit and short-term-debt; but rather than bank the rest (where inflation would eat it away at up to a quarter of its spending value every year), we decided to take care of… Continue reading The renovations and upgrades are done at last
As evidence, I offer you this article. A ‘uterus-shaped’ cereal has been launched with the goal of putting conversations about periods on the table. Feminine care brand Intimina developed its raspberry-flavoured ‘Period Crunch’ to encourage families to discuss menstruation more openly at breakfast. Despite being marketed as womb-shaped, the cereal actually resembles the entire… Continue reading Is it possible that moonbats can’t see how utterly crazy they’ve become?
This report makes troubling reading. Restaurants continued to increase their share of spending in April, reaching 54.9% of the food dollar, according to U.S. Census data released Tuesday. That was a 260-basis-point increase from April last year, when the share was 52.3%, said analyst Mark Kalinowski, president and CEO of New Jersey-based Kalinowski Equity… Continue reading A sign of major imbalance in an unhealthy society?
As a pastor, I ran into several cases of SIDS – Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Every one was tragic. The parents sometimes went to pieces emotionally, blaming themselves, blaming God, unable to accept that their otherwise perfectly normal, healthy baby had gone to sleep and never woken up again. Some were able to recover… Continue reading Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) – is this the cause?
Fellow author Brian Niemeier has written an article on his blog titled “Jaimie’s Island“. It’s an interesting read. Here’s an excerpt. Boomers left parenting up to TV, and Millennials are leaving parenting up to tablets and phones. As a result, young adults today have little contact with the highs and lows of the real… Continue reading Jamie’s prescription for getting modern minds right
I’m sure many of my readers are familiar with the blog of “Stilton Jarlsberg”, who sheds illuminating (and very amusing) light on current events. Sadly, events in his life are anything but amusing right now. His wife has been battling with cancer for a long time, and it looks like her options for further… Continue reading Spare a prayer for fellow blogger Stilton Jarlsberg and his wife
Our good friend Lawdog posted this warning on MeWe a couple of days ago. I re-post it here, with his permission. I don’t know who needs to hear this, but: Anytime someone who is not a blood relative tells your child, “You can’t tell your parents about this” that should be an immediate red… Continue reading A parental advisory from Lawdog
In the preceding article, I quoted the Bible about how to raise children: “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it“. It sounds like this mother had done her best to “train up her child” in the right way, but he… Continue reading Well, good for her!
That’s the question posed by Charles Hugh Smith, whom we’ve met many times in these pages. It’s a very good one, and ties in with the advice I and others have given often over the past few years: get out of cities, and move to a location and environment where one will be more… Continue reading “Should You Move While You Can, Or When You Must?”
