"Hello, Seeker! Now don't feel alone here in the New Age, because there's a Seeker born every minute!"


Many years ago, there was an album by The Firesign Theater. It was called, 'Everything You Know Is Wrong'. I am beginning to believe that. (I will give examples)..


How is everyone doing? I really mean it, how is everyone doing? I will tell you that I have had a trying time lately. I am very anxious to get this house sold and move into my new future. It's funny to me how we can believe one thing, probably because our friends, parents, teacher or whomever has told us, when all along the truth was something else. Let me give you an example. 

I was married in the past and one time, we were at her mom's house for Thanksgiving dinner. Prior to that, she and I cooked a ham and she whittled of the end, put it in the pot, cut side up. I asked her why she did that? "Mom taught me that" was her reply. I asked my MIL why that made for a better ham. She laughed and said here mother had taught her to do the ham that way. It turns out that the grandmother said that you had to do that to get the ham to fit in the pot. Here are some opinions I have discovered. I say opinions because so many things I was taught have turned out to be wrong....

It just goes to show me that many of the truths that I was taught were just opinions. I hope to debunk as many of them from my head as I can. Please, wish me luck, for it has been stuffed full from birth. Now for a true video. I know it's true, because I read it on the internet.....

Be mindful, O Lord, of those who travel by land, by sea, and by air; of the old and young, the sick, the suffering, the sorrowing, the afflicted, the captives, the needy and the poor; and upon them all send forth Thy mercies, for Thou art the Giver of all good things.

May you go safe while traveling far, may you love and live long,

May we all meet and be happy again.



  1. All true and also to funny..thanks for the laugh

  2. Michael, in the Big Picture, I'm doing marvelous and am very blessed. In the Short View, I have had a fun and pleasantly busy weekend. Two little issues are niggling at me currently - allergies such that I am sleeping in a recliner and my dear auntie is on the path of passing from this Earth. That's REALLY how I'm doing and thanks for asking, my friend. :)

  3. We are almost to AZ so I am doing extremely well. I know it has to be frustrating for you to have to wait for that house to sell. Just remember you aren't alone. Lots of others in the same boat and lots of friends praying for you.

  4. Just had to let you know I do love reading your blog. It's not just entertaining, but quite thought provoking.

    Thank you.

  5. Ain't it the truth!

    Here's one I'm currently debunking inside my head: fluoride is good for you.

  6. I think this kind of thinking is called "branding" I use Tide because my mother used Tide ..or why does a bald guy keep using Head and Shoulderss?..Hang in there with the house...don't think of it as doing are doing something to further your dream. I kind of had a hissy fit with myself or the in.."Where did I get all this STUFF"? !! Needless to say it is going this week...

  7. Me? I am doing fine (at least most of the time) Somehow I thought by this age (67) my complexion would be absolutely clear. So I guess this another one of those myths. Pimples DON'T end when the teenage years end. Just a thought.

  8. Great post. We all have gone through this, when we finally become mature enough to doubt them.

  9. Yeo, there are lots of wives tales and myths out there. Good luck with the sale of your house.

    Kevin and Ruth

  10. I don't know what I would do without you guys. Thank you for being positive for me. Many of you have become family. I will get out there!

  11. Hi Michael! I am doing well, here in dirtville, getting out of here is slow going, though...Blogger? not so much! The issues blogging, posting and commenting remain.

    I can't believe you haven't sold that gorgeous house. If i was in the market for a permenant residence, yours one be my top pick.

    It can't be long until someone falls in love with it!

    Until then, hang tuff and don't let it bring you down (it's only castles burning) or

  12. In the big picture, we're doing great since we're just getting ready to head south for the winter. In the little picture .... we have a long ways to drive!!

  13. Hi Michael. Thanks for following A Camp Host's Meanderings. I look forward to following your journey also. And I like the idea of debunking the myths in your head!

  14. Thanks Cyndi (I love me some Neil Young)

    Wanderin' is your name and wanderin' your game. Please drive carefully!!
