The bass voice on this record is Thurl Ravenscroft, famous as the voice of
Tony the Tiger
and for his singing of "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" from the Christmas classic.
It's pretty catchy, isn't it? After my first listening of this song, I realized this song isn't about a house, is it? It's about your body. Now I'm not religious, per se, but tend to see myself as spiritual. I don't care for fanaticism or dogma, at all! I'm a little leery of organized religion, but I do live by the adage.... Live and Let Live. I have never bought into things like last week's apocalyptic deception, although I was a little amused. Heck, I was a little disappointed that Y2K turned out the way it did. I think I was ready for a little anarchy and chaos. I don't really attended church on Sunday morning, but my dear sweet Mary and I both tune into Joel Osteen. Here's a quick clip of what he does. I like him because of his positive attitude and his boyish smile. After we watch him on Sunday morning, Mary and I have a conversation about what he had to say. I figure we're gathered in His name.
I do read the Bible. I don't know what translation you read, but I like "The Message." I will confess, I don't read all of the Bible, all of the time. I do read the Proverbs, on a regular basis. My mentor taught me that everyone needed a standard of living. He told me the book of Proverbs had 31 chapters and the easy way to learn those standards of living would be read one chapter a day. I followed that advice many times. I really never get tired of reading Proverbs. When Mr. Camping's prediction of the last day didn't work out for him, it didn't affect how I feel spiritually. I think the guy's kind of a religious nut. You can you know that Billy Joe Shaver is one of my heroes, right? Here's his take on what the Bible says....
That Billy Joe is pretty blunt,huh? That's one of the reasons he's one of my heroes. I really didn't mean for this to be a religious/spiritual post. I feel like everyone has a right to believe whatever they want to. That doesn't mean I have agree with it. What that means is I believe in freedom of religion (or no religion, whatever the case). I believe we’re free to conceive God, however we want to. Here's my buddy, Kris Kristofferson, to explain it to us...
I'm not going to complain about the problems I've been having with blogger. I did have it fixed for a while and then it decided to just unfixed itself. So now I just put it in the hands of the universal computer god. I know that Monday is Memorial Day, so I respectfully offer this.....
Everybody have a good safe holiday weekend. Thanks a lot for coming by.
Oh yeah, before I forget, here's a cartoon..
