All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


New Post

I'm sorry I've not had a new post for a couple of days.  I've been a bit off on my posting lately.  Part of that has been a result of my taking a break from the news.  News producers thrive on promoting the negative.  Even the conservative news outlets are focused on negative out comes.  Every so often I get to a point where I need a mental break form the entire mess.

I started writing a book.  If you count the title page, table of contents, and the forward, I've got seven pages written.  This project is more involved than I thought it would be.  Writing causes a different sort of fatigue than other activities.  One thing that reliably happens is that I don't feel much like writing anything else.  I suspect that I'll have a draft copy of my book done sometime around 2020 at the rate I'm going.

I hope you are well.  I'm still around.  The BJW queue is full through the start of next year and I'm sure I'll have something to say on some of the other days as well.

    Creativity isn't something you pull out of an orifice like a ready made kit and assemble it by the numbers.

    Creativity takes a lot of work. It is of your heart and your soul, almost like the creation of another baby Res. That is how I feel when I work on one of my quilts.

    Don't sweat it, don't feel guilty or pressured. It will flow out of you in its own sweet time. I am sure you pray before you sit down at your desk. If this is something God wants written from you, it will come.

    Hey, if the book needs your time more than the blog, I say give it. At least that might make you some money.

    Copy that. One begins to feel a bit brow-beaten after a steady diet of it all. May Hashem renew your mind and spirit.
