WH refers to a 'Holiday Tree.'

Tom's Journal.

Hi  Friends,
    We have a very strong wind blowing all through today that was punishing and twisting the trees in my back yard in a fierce way, and the precipitation all turned into a  huge ice rink on the roads and at the restaurant and stores, today, too.   But I wanted my fav. Omelet today, and needed to shop for some fresh fruit and just a few extra things to tide me over, and then came back home to give thanks for all that God has blessed me with.  I also bought a bottle of  Amaretto, for no special reason, except that it tastes really good on a cold Winter night in the U.P.    Ha!   It also reminds me of those Kringles that the Danish bakers make in S.E. Wisconsin, that are so delicious for breakfast and coffee, and special bakers in Racine, WI., seem to have 'cornered the market,' and risen to fame with their fine baking skills.   So, here is a little back ground for that drink.  

I hope that I am not repeating myself, too much, on this humble blog,  but I guess my life is simple enough, and I love to write.   Now days, some folks [like me] wonder about making too much money that could be flagged by the evil IRS, so that they can actually take away some of my Gov't/  VA money, etc.   So if I wrote a book and it became 'well received, and popular,' and sold too many copies --- that just might happen to me !!   There is always something in Socialism that holds the hard working man/ or woman,  down  $$$.  Dang !   That is why I always carry an attorney in my back pocket, and he charges me for questions like that, too !!   See what I mean ?   If only we had a fair system, without people like Hillary and Obama -- the same folks who have done  their best to pervert our Justice system, and then the rest of the Liberal, Socialist Dims just follow, like 3 blind mice !   How totally absurd !   BTW,  I want to thank my good friend, Greg L., from IL., who sent this message/ email to me, today,  which I felt compelled to 'cut and paste' for you all today.   he knows me fairly well, and also sends lots of jokes, and news worthy email, to entertain me and bolster me up/  keep me in good spirits.   We don't agree on everything,  but mostly everything important, such as:   "Jesus is Lord."  He was in the U.S. Navy for a long time, so I call him my "Vet Brother."   

Word Origin and History for amaretto


Italian almond-flavored liqueur, 1945 (the original brand, Amaretto di Saronno, dates to 1851), from the Italian word for almond (q.v.), which did not acquire the excrescent -l- of the English word. Sometimes confused with amoretto. Amoroso (literally "lover"), a type of sweetened sherry, is

I have also told you all, that I love to call my aging Mom, in Burlington, WI., often, like almost every day to hear her voice.   She is suffering from Dementia, and Alsziemers'  disorder, but she still know me.   I feel guilty that I don't drive for 4 hours to see her more often, and now the  roads will be more slippery to drive on.....   See,  I told you that my name is:   "Terrible Tom  !"  But people just laugh when I tell them that.    Hummmmm, now I got the wheels in my head turning and thinking about a possible run down to see Mom.... Hummmm...   I guess, if there is a will -- there is a way.  

I do have a plan for the following few months, at least..  yes, a 'Game Plan !'   I sure wish that I had a partner or friend to make the trip with me, as it would be so much more fun and exciting, personal.  
     But,  just as I discussed today with my Mom,  we are not going to FIND many Christian, honest, truthful, gentle women out there anymore !!  Nor men,  either.   People in this old, dying world, are mostly "Takers" --- not givers, and maybe that is how they survive, and WILL survive, in the future, when/ were men and women become more animalistic without the H.S. -- Holy Spirit, to guide them anymore.    And it's really selfishness and "willful ignorance."  
     You see, friends,  I have heard it said too many times, that people DON'T WANT TO LEARN ABOUT THE BIBLE,  as they THINK that somehow they won't suffer, or be Judged by God,  because they resist and remain unlearned, uneducated, unversed in the KJV Bible.   But God KNOWS THE HEART of men, and they will be divided in to just 2 classes of people:   Saved by the blood of Jesus,   and NOT Saved.   And also,  many folks believe that they should get Saved,  but do nothing for the Lord after that, not even lift a finger to do the Kingdom work of sharing in the  Gospel sharing work....   I admit that I am a sinner -- but I still do share in that teaching/ sharing ministry, in a few ways.

Right now,  I am getting worried again, gaining too much weight in the Winter, having trouble walking far, and short of breath,  and so I pray harder.   
     One of my good friends, and brothers in combat with the same Helicopter Company in Vietnam,  Walter E. Weber,  [some say the best door gunner, in our Platoon, or even Company]   ---died about a year ago [I prob. don't have the correct day/ month/ year, right.  But his lovely wife, "M", is alone now ---- way far East of me, and we visit sometimes on the phone, although she is too young for me....  and I don't smoke....    What I am trying to say is:   That people MY age, especially Vietnam Vets are dropping like flies in a mist of Raid spray , or in the shadow of the fly swatter !!   And that fact just gets me to wondering, too.    I know this sounds very stupid,  but I wanted to be married to a kind, smart, loving woman, so I could leave most of my Chrysler, and VA Benefits to her, and my kids. ******** --Some of this argument was 'redacted' so I would not start another argument,  rehashing some old crap ******....  sorry.  
          God must have His reasons and some folks wonder if God was trying to "Save me" from a sour, destructive contract !   Or, as my good son,. Andy used to say,  "Dad,  cut your losses!"  
      Sorry to rehash all that crap again,  but in this way, I am getting things sorted out in my own mind.     I sure as hell don't want to repeat the same mistakes again.

 Now,  down below, the man says:   " A little sanity please...   Only hope we find God again before it's too late !" 
      OK,  the trouble is, that the man didn't study his Bible !!  We ARE in the 'Last Days' right now !!   And we cannot turn them back, slow them down, nor compete with,  nor alter  God's Plan and Judgment....  much of  the same way God Judged Sodom and Gomorrah !!    You see, we have even lost sight of our role in life and History, and God's written Word, the KJV Bible !    Here is the formula of how it all will 'go down' in God's eye's:   There is a special NUMBER of humans that will be Raptured up ---- a Number that only God knows [and right now, Jesus Christ, knows too, at this stage of the game].   That "Number" of men and women is destined to inhabit the golden city above the earth -- the "New Heavens," and we even know the physical dimensions !!   See:  Rev.   So no matter who says what, or how many books people write to sell and make more money,  God does have His Plan in order,  and nothing in the Universe can alter His Plan by one second or inch !   And all of OUR human plans ought to be "built around" God's plans !   Simple as pie.   Got it !?

 I just don't know or understand WHY most people on earth are too proud, too lazy or too stupid to just PICK UP THE BIBLE AND READ THE WORDS ?!?   I did it, and I am just an average man.   I am really living for one main, special purpose, and you should be, too.


Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary

Proverbs 26:3

A whip is for the horse, a bridle for the donkey, And a rod for the back of fools.

Adam Clarke Commentary

A whip for the horse - Correction is as suitable to a fool, as a whip is for a horse, or a bridle for an ass.

"A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, And a rod for the back of fools.
Answer not a fool according to his folly, Lest thou also be like unto him.
Answer a fool according to his folly, Lest he be wise in his own conceit.
He that sendeth a message by a fool cutteth off his own feet, and drinketh in damage.
The legs of the lame hang loose, So is a parable in the mouth of fools.
As one that bindeth a stone in a sling, So is he that giveth honor to a fool.
As a thorn that goeth up into the hand of a drunkard, So is a parable in the mouth of fools.
As an archer that woundeth all, So is he that hireth a fool and he that hireth them that pass by.
As a dog that returneth to his vomit, So is a fool that repeateth his folly.
Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? There is more hope of a fool than of him."
Here we have a variation in Proverbs, a collection of verses regarding a single subject. The subject here is fools. Apparently Hezekiah's men, who sought out these proverbs from the writings of Solomon (Proverbs 25:1), decided to classify them!
This subject was apparently one of Solomon's favorites, We have already discussed this subject under the following verses: Proverbs 10:8,13,14,23; 12:1,8,15,23; 13:15,16; 14:6,7,8,15,16,18,24,33; 15:7,14,21; 17:10,12,24.[2] See our comments under those references. These verses are all in the same spirit of detestation of fools as are all the others.
Proverbs 26:4 and Proverbs 26:5 should not be viewed as a contradiction, but as a statement that one's answer 

Guess who is showing his "True Colors" now,  and will continue to do dirt to America to the very end.   Now you know that Barry has a black heart and hates Christianity,  big time !!   You can take this anyway you like !

Apparently the White House referred to Christmas Trees as Holiday Trees for
the first time this year which prompted CBS presenter, Steven Levy, to
present this piece which I would like to share
with you. I think it applies just as much to many countries as it does to

A little sanity please...

Only hope we find GOD again before it is too late!!

The following was written by Steven Levy and recited by him on CBS Sunday
Morning Commentary.

My confession:

I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think
Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people
who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I
have no idea where the concept came from,
that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the
Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat...

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we
should worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God as we
understand Him? I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too. But there
are a lot of us who are wondering where
these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a
little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's
intended to get you thinking.
In light of recent events... terrorists attack, school shootings, etc.. I
think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body
found a few years ago) complained she didn't
want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better
not read the Bible in school... The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou
shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Steven Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when
they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we
might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said
an expert should know what he's talking
about.. And we said okay..

Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they
don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill
strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out.
I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.'

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the
world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but
question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail
and they spread like wildfire, but when
you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about
sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely
through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the
school and workplace.

Are you laughing yet?

Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on
your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they
will think of you for sending it.

Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than
what God thinks of us.
