Prayer for Juni Blessed Cat

Juni my blessed cat

was born on the day
which I visited the first home
I rented when I moved to Hobart
from Canberra.

Before him was
Sara the kitten
who was killed in her kittenhood.

Before Sara was
Rastus the solid grey cat
who I found a new home for
when I moved to new rental home
and could not keep Rastus.

Rastus was 2 years old
when he found a new owner.

Before Rastus was
Piffle the cat
also known as Patches

he was shy and never fought.
he would run and hide.
he lived to his adult years,
then

he was viciously killed by two dogs
on his front door.

Juni Blessed cat
is the reincarnation of all those cats
Juni lives on with me
and he is very happy
and knows much love

he is my blessed companion
God bless Juni

Amen

PSALM 106 – “The Lord’s Goodness to His People”

Image via Wikipedia

PSALM 106 – “The Lord’s Goodness to His People

19:106:001 Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is
good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

19:106:002 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? who can shew forth
all his praise?

19:106:003 Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth
righteousness at all times.

19:106:004 Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that thou bearest unto
thy people: O visit me with thy salvation;

19:106:005 That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in
the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine
inheritance.

19:106:006 We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity,
we have done wickedly.

19:106:007 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they
remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked him
at the sea, even at the Red sea.

19:106:008 Nevertheless he saved them for his name’s sake, that he might
make his mighty power to be known.

19:106:009 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led
them through the depths, as through the wilderness.

19:106:010 And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and
redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.

19:106:011 And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of
them left.

19:106:012 Then believed they his words; they sang his praise.

19:106:013 They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel:

19:106:014 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in
the desert.

19:106:015 And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their
soul.

19:106:016 They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the
LORD.

19:106:017 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan and covered the
company of Abiram.

19:106:018 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up
the wicked.

19:106:019 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image.

19:106:020 Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox
that eateth grass.

19:106:021 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in
Egypt;

19:106:022 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things by the
Red sea.

19:106:023 Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses
his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn away his
wrath, lest he should destroy them.

19:106:024 Yea, they despised the pleasant land, they believed not his
word:

19:106:025 But murmured in their tents, and hearkened not unto the voice
of the LORD.

19:106:026 Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow
them in the wilderness:

19:106:027 To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter
them in the lands.

19:106:028 They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the
sacrifices of the dead.

19:106:029 Thus they provoked him to anger with their inventions: and the
plague brake in upon them.

19:106:030 Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and so the
plague was stayed.

19:106:031 And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all
generations for evermore.

19:106:032 They angered him also at the waters of strife, so that it went
ill with Moses for their sakes:

19:106:033 Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spake unadvisedly
with his lips.

19:106:034 They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD
commanded them:

19:106:035 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.

19:106:036 And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.

19:106:037 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto
devils,

19:106:038 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of
their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of
Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.

19:106:039 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a
whoring with their own inventions.

19:106:040 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his
people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.

19:106:041 And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that
hated them ruled over them.

19:106:042 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into
subjection under their hand.

19:106:043 Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked him with
their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.

19:106:044 Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their
cry:

19:106:045 And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented
according to the multitude of his mercies.

19:106:046 He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them
captives.

19:106:047 Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the heathen,
to give thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph in thy
praise.

Square Peg and Round Hole and Lazarus Free Pascal Metaphor

Square Peg and Round Hole and Lazarus Free Pascal Metaphor

Excerpt:

> In the metaphor of the square peg going into the round hole…. the hole is the different operating systems generally speaking which Lazarus and Free Pascal are targeting (which I will generally speak of grouped together).
>
> The round peg (cylinder) is the STABLE version of Lazarus and Free Pascal which fit beautifully into the round hole. Excellent work team!!! Thank you sincerely from the depths of my heart.
>
> The square peg with the shaved corners which now fits firmly into the round hole is the Lazarus 0.9.31.x BETA and “Unstable” (if that is the right term) version, and up until recently the pre-official latest BETA version of Free Pascal.
>
> This is to say that the BETA version is very much more stable then the development team seems to appear to be telling us.
>
> It seems to me that almost everyone here is using the BETA version in preference to the STABLE Lazarus 0.9.28.2. Am I correct?
>
> That square peg is Lazarus BETA (0.9.31.x) which has it’s corners almost perfectly shaved off and is making a very firm fit into the round hole.

Hi Peter,

That is quite a story.

I have many friends that live in Tasmania at this Christian community:

I think you would be blessed if you visited them. If you do visit, tell
them “hi” from me.

This was not difficult. It did take time. It also made my career in the RAN come to a stop (e.g. no more promotions) but it did not stop me from achieving my goal of training myself as an amateur programmer and website developer and poet. I also achieve my life goal of retiring to a beautiful island state of Australia called Tasmania where I am retired and live with my 6.5 year old cat, Juni, which I have owned ever since I moved from Canberra to Hobart, 6.5 years ago.

The owners were living in Hong Kong and returned after my 2 years renting the house immediately after the woman had died, with her friendly ghost still haunting the house. It was said that because the home was a Miracle House… one of many Miracle Houses of Hobart… that all one needed to do was visit the house and pray to God for whatever your heart desired and God and Jesus would grant your wish and your wish would become reality. I was sceptical but this seemed perfect to me (when I found it and considered renting it).
>

I visited the house on 13 July 2004 the day I flew from Canberra, and I prayed to God to tell me whether or not I should rent this house and that I dearly needed a pet cat as I had been grieving for the loss of my old pet call Piffle the Cat who was killed by 2 dogs when I was 17 years old.

It was the very Miracle House and the Miracle was that God and Jesus gave me exactly what I needed… a loving cat to keep me company and sleep with me in bed…. because I could not find a woman for a girl friend, and although I maintained an active sex life, I remained a bachelor.

Musical Tastes of a Self-Confessed “Nice Guy”

Musical Tastes of a Self-Confessed

Nice Guy

Intended Audience

I expect that this document will be of interest to women interested in
Nice Guys, Nice Guys wanting to learn more about themselves and
possible musical tastes. And also anyone who wants to know more about a typical nice guy. This is the experience of a single nice guy [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nice_guy
] .

Purpose

The purpose of this article is to reveal by self-confession the history
and musical tastes of a typical ‘Nice guy‘ [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nice_guy ], myself.

I have written this document out of a desire to remove ignorance.
Excerpt from ‘Nice guy’ [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nice_guy
]

The “nice guy” construct

One difficulty in studying the “nice guy” phenomenon is due to the
ambiguity of the “nice guy” construct. Participants in studies
interpret “nice guy” to mean different things. In their qualitative
analysis
, Herold & Milhausen (1998) found that women associate
different qualities with the “nice guy” label: “Some women offered
flattering interpretations of the nice guy, characterizing him as
committed, caring, and respectful of women. Some women, however,
emphasized more negative aspects, considering the nice guy to be
boring, lacking confidence, and unattractive.”

There is also a negative phenomenon associated with the “nice girl” in
the same respect. She may be considered to be a prude, boring and
overly submissive.

The bad boys were also divided into two categories, “as either
confident, attractive, sexy, and exciting or as manipulative,
unfaithful, disrespectful of women, and interested only in sex.”
Researchers have operationalized the “nice guy” and “jerk” constructs
in different ways, some of which are outlined below (McDaniel 2005).

I agree that:
… women associate different qualities with the “nice guy” label: “Some women offered flattering interpretations of the nice guy, characterizing him as committed,
caring, and respectful of women.”

And disagree with the following statement and I believe that the following women are bitches (that’s a term that these women use to describe themselves) who dislike or hate Nice Guys [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nice_guy ] :
Some women, however, emphasized more negative aspects, considering the nice guy to be boring, lacking confidence, and unattractive.”

My above state is considered uncharacteristic of a Nice Guy [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nice_guy ].

Introduction and History

I consider myself to be a ‘Nice guy’ [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nice_guy ]. I am 49 years old and I was born in 1961 in Australia.

I consider myself to be intelligent without being super-intelligent. I am introspective and sometimes like to talk a lot. I prefer to type what I need to say on my computer so that I can fully explain my emotions.

I have collected music audio CDs since they were first invented and have a collection of about 100 or so audio CDs. Most of these have be ripped by myself on to my Linux Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 Operating System.

I dislike Microsoft because of my history of bad experiences with Microsoft working as a public servant for a very large government department.

I am unfamiliar with Microsoft Windows 7 and later versions, as it of no interest to me and too expensive.

I can make my Linux Operating System do most of what I want with Open Source
Software.

I worked there as a trainee draftsman and studied electronics at technical college (TAFE) to obtain my qualifications. I was a draftsman [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draftsman ] and I developed schizophrenia [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schizophrenia ].

Music Tastes

I have the following music in my collection of ripped audio CDs in my computer. Note that this collection has taken me 49 years to collect.

Before you ask, this is a list of MY current collection of music. If you don’t see it listed then it’s because I probably don’t own it (yet). I am not saying that if it’s
missing that it won’t appeal to nice guys, but simply that I don’t have
it or possibly don’t own it.

How the Crock of Shit Became Office Policy (humour)

Same Ol' Shit
Image via Wikipedia

How the Crock of Shit Became Office Policy
( humour )

===========================================

There once was a great big crock of shit. And all the workers near it said “GOD that stinks, we must run away!”

And they said to their supervisor “There is powerful mature and we cannot stand to be by it. It is too strong.”

And the supervisor said to the manager “There is a container of powerful stuff and it is so strong that no man can stand to be near by it.”

And the manager said “Wow. That is a great way to control the workers. It is a powerful force and it can control men.

I LIKE IT. And so it became official office policy.

Moral : If you are working with a pile of shit then clean it up or the management will think that you like it and you will be stuck with it because everyone thinks that that’s what you like to be around !!!

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED, NOW CLEAN UP YOUR OWN SHIT!!!

HahaAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAAHAHAHAAHA

How deep is the shit your shit that you’re in now.

Wait on, and I get you a shovel. (I’m just trying to help you!)

Review of e-book “Double Your Dating” by David DeAngelo – Without Prejudice

Review of e-book “Double Your Dating” by David DeAngelo (US$19.90)

Without Prejudice

by Patient X © 2010

David DeAngelo (the author) seems to me to be a creepy serial pick-up guy. He claims to have made a career from being an expert at dating women. This he tells the readers is from years of research and giving seminars.

He appears to live in Los Vegas. He claims that the books and advice he researched did not work on EVERY WOMAN — well, in the words of Homer Simpson “Duh!”. Don’t you think that all women are different and some of them actually have a brain?

The question is: Where does all this dating ultimately lead? What is the next step?

I believe that most men who are dating want to meet women and have a lot of sex – but also ultimately meet a “hot” (attractive) young woman and have a lasting relationship; whether that is defacto or marriage.

In today’s society it seems (to me) to be much more popular to live together first. Sort of like taking the shiny new car for a test drive. Then buying it (live together) on terms, and then when times are tough, trade it in after a few years.

That’s the democratic modern world’s attitude in the 21st century.

About Double Your Dating
I have *not* read the entire e-book. I downloaded it on 7-day trial terms. I then read the first 5-6 pages and I made a copy of it (and the password in a text file) on to a cdrom. I took it to my local library and read up to about page 25. I needed to go other places. In the past 4 odd weeks I have NOT been compelled to finish it and I disagree with David’s underlying message and tone of the book.

Don’t panic David. I am not one of the ‘Bad Boys’ you warn against in you book in your fear of copyright infringement. Maybe your book is not on pirated websites simply because they don’t like it, just as like I don’t.

The style is pretty easy to read. He claims to be some kind of authority on chatting up women and gives examples of lines with pauses for talking to women, etc.

He is honest and he endorses what he calls “cheeky and cocky” talk. That means that he makes silly jokes about the women — poking fun at them with a sense of humour.

An example is that if you are dating a woman and walking with her and she is carrying a cup of tea; if she then spills some drink, he proceeds to tell her in a funny voice that she will never be the kind of woman that he wants to date. Apparently the women he likes finds this very funny.

He also discusses in his e-book the types of women he like to talk to. Apparently these include:

* Actresses, models & regular (normal) women

* Lesbians

* Angry women

* For that matter, apparently he tries his luck with all of them. It seems that any good looking woman with a pulse is his type. You’d need to ask David if the pulse is optional.

David also tells us that beautiful women are hard to find. I disagree with him there, but also many beautiful women I know are in relationship or not dating. I know a few women who I regard as beautiful and friends and I have not had sex with them because they are not interested in a sexual way. It is very rewarding for myself to have close female friends without needing to ask them for sex.

Emails You’ll Receive
When (if) you buy this book, you’ll get onto David’s email list.

In David’s emails he will quote alleged emails from men who have followed his advice and either are having problems or sharing success stories. I say alleged emails because it is obvious that David is a creative writer and we are never certain if these are from real people or some he or a creative friend has written as a fictional story.

The ‘success stories’ are from excited men who are happy and obviously massages David’s ego.

We can never be sure whether these emails are real or not. Certainly he does not regard those as confidential.

In one typical email (apparently) from a man who has been dating and is asking for help, the man is obviously in love and very emotional.

What does David do? He immediately gets very angry and proceeds to abuse in written email to everyone in the list what an idiot he (the man asking for advice) is. This pattern is constantly repeat in his replies.

David does not take any responsibility for what has happened. He then goes into his expert-dater-man-about-the-town-mode and dish out the same old advise. Reworded and repeated.

It seems apparent that David does not want a long-term relationship with anyone he dates.

He tells the men to date for a while and to have sex a few times. Date rape is warned against — Thank God. And his advice is to phone the women after having sex and tell them that you just want to be friends.

Apparently this advice will make the women want you more, and hopefully she won’t lose your number and will be friends.

He also has some advise for submissive men. He tells them to seek professional Mistresses who wear leather gear and have whips and charge $400/hour.

This is dangerous advice unless these men undertake some serious research. Trust me, the worst thing a man like that would want to do is tell a Mistress that he has no limits. Some will take it literally.

I have personally known and become good friends with many women like this. They are all regular human beings. And with their own lives, loves, romances, emotions and good and bad times.

All humans on this planet, ultimately have their own priorities & agendas. These women (as well as men & TVs & TSs) are often times very intelligent. Many are learning & experiementing. Like any professional, they spend years to learn their trade and get training and experience.

I wonder if he (David) knows what BDSM is. BDSM = Bondage & Discipline, Dominance & Submission, Sadism & Masochism. It is not everyone’s cup of tea. Also note that not everyone involved is necessarily into all possible aspects. Venture with caution if you are tempted. It (BDSM) is not something to be taken lightly.

Conclusion
I think that more than once David has woken up alone and thought to himself “Geee — What was the name of that lovely woman I once dated?” And mentally run through 1000s of faces and names in his mind… only to be confused and think “Oh yeah… I think it was Susan (or whoever) — she’s a famous model & married too. I told her I just wanted to be friends. Oh well, tomorrow’s another day… another bar… another strange woman to date.”

And he wonders why he gets angry when men don’t follow his advice.

— The End
