Baltimore Violence

Who I Am

I am a white male. I am a Christian and I am a Capitalist. I believe in the Second Amendment and America’s exceptionalism.

Today, I have decided to let a strong, black woman speak for me on the Baltimore situation. President Obama needs to listen to her, too.

God bless her for telling the truth. Her language is very strong, but hey, she is correct in her points.

America: Imagine the World Without Her

Dinesh D’Souza

Dinesh D'Souza
Dinesh D’Souza

Dinesh D’Souza is an immigrant. He chose to be an American. Not an Indian-American, he chose to be an American, like me.

In an age where the favorite tactic is to outshout, not out reason, your opponent, Dinesh D’Souza  quietly overwhelms America’s haters with facts, with historical bonifides that cannot be denied.

In Dinesh D’Souza’s America: Imagine the World Without Her we are given answers to all the condemnations of ourselves, our history and our country to which we have not had access before because part of the Progressive battle plan has been to deny us the history which would have given us those answers.

America has been a force for good in the world, despite what the Progressives would like to think and about which they go to such great lengths to lie.

Even those who despise us, when given the choice of surrendering to our forces or the forces of any other military force on the planet, will rush towards the American line like a toddler rushing into his mother’s arms.

My Experience

Ronald Reagan’s first election was one that I was born 26 days too late to participate in. My contribution at that point was limited to bearing his bumper stickers on my car and singing his praises to everyone who would listen.

With the Prime Interest Rate at more than 20%, that included just about everyone.

1980 was a time when, it seemed, the entire country had just broken a terrible fever, the kind that came with terrible night sweats and dreams making you wonder if you would make it to the morning light.

Reagan led us in such a fashion that people had hope for the future. Hope for the future and an energy that made you leap out of the bed and rush to the day’s activities, certain of victory in pursuit of your goals.

This is a most hateful state of affairs for the Progressives and others who are not happy unless the world is miserable.

Dinesh D’Souza’s America: Imagine the World Without Her will lift your spirits and make you realize that the faith you feel in your bones in the basic goodness of America and her special place in history is more than justifiable, it is proven.

You can view America: Imagine the World Without Her on Netflix and Amazon.

Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2015

Happy Valentine’s Day to all you good folks, bad, too, as far as that goes. Today is when every woman walks around wondering what she will get from her beau and every man wonders if she will like it.

Then again, there are those happy few whose love affair reaches so high that every day of the year is Valentine’s Day.

I am lucky in love, myself. I wish I had never kissed even a single woman before I met my wife, Mary Jane, That many of you will doubt the truth of that is a given. That it does not matter is also a given.

Tree Huggers Hate Hug Me Day

Check this out. I found this on the front page of Google when I search the term ‘Valentine’s Day’ to see what related searches popped up at the bottom.

TreeHuggers Hate Hug Me Day

Really, guys? Oh, wait. I get it. No one to hug today except a rugged old birch that has developed a personality for you. No problem. Want me to get your medication for you?

Ebola did not kill us all, the ice caps are still there, you have been caught manipulating the data, get over it.

…and for goodness sake, take a breath. Not everything is related to the environment.

Valentine’s Day Gifts For Him

Men, like women, are individuals all. If you are buying for Larry the Cable Guy you will buy in one store. If you are buying for Todd Chrisley you will be shopping in vastly different stores.

All men, safe to say, like knowing their woman is with them because they see him, the person. Spending some time telling him how much he means to you is the best gift ever. He may not respond in kind. Some of us are simply not wired that way. But we would go to war for you and God help the man who lay a hand on you against your will.

The man who works 60-70 hours a week to feed you and the kids? Yeah, that is him telling you he loves you. Loves you so much he is willing to stand on concrete floor from 7PM until 7AM in a bottling factory at minimum wage to make sure your family makes it.

I don’t think I am speaking just for myself when I say that when your woman just crawls into your lap, even when you are exhausted, is a fine thing, a d@mn fine thing. You forget about the aches in your body from work. You don’t have to say anything, either. His feelings for you are in the aches he has from working.

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her

Jewelry, candy, flowers. The standbys generally do a good job. You might want to think about what it would mean to her if you were both free to travel the world, though.

It is not everyone’s dream, I admit. But working towards it starting today after all the day’s activities are over with might not be a bad thing.

Valentine’s Day Quotes

Valentine’s Day 2002 Mom asks, “Tim, are you ever going to get remarried?”
Tim  says, “Nope. My house is quiet and I like it that way.” -Tim

April 20, 2012 Tim says, “I do.”

“For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.” -Judy Garland

…and you have to love this one.

“The best smell in the world is that man that you love.” -Jennifer Aniston

I think maybe that goes both ways. I remember when I met Mary Jane, she always smells like cinnamon to me, and cinnamon is in my top three.

Can’t do this without a Robert Browning quote.

“So, fall asleep love, loved by me… for I know love, I am loved by thee.” -Robert Browning

Valentine’s Day Movie

We are going to see Jupiter Rising. Fifty Shades of Grey reared its head, but nah, we rolled with Jupiter Rising.

Why? Admittedly, I got the author or 50 Shades of Grey confused with Toni Morrison. No, I don’t know how. I did and that affected my decision, admittedly bad info on my part. But we have been wanting to see Jupiter Rising anyways. As I get older, I get a bit more demanding in my standards of behavior in movies and it has begun to really save me quite a bit of money.

My Valentine’s

My luck in my love life is beyond coincidence.  Not once since I met her the first time in the airport at Butuan City has my heart failed to leap when I see her for the first time. Whether the separation is a 3 year break between visits to see her, 10 hours when I go to work or 15 minutes when I run to the store, my heart is still happy at the sight of her.

She smiles when she sees me. I cannot help myself.

It has to be Divine Providence.  I have said that Mary Jane is proof that God still loves me, despite my weaknesses and bad decisions.

I am blessed in life with a woman who is smart, beautiful, kind, Christian, generous and thinks I am a good man.

I can ask for no more than that.

My Favorite 5 Books – Fiction

Hey, thanks for dropping by my blog. If you liked it or found it interesting, please comment on it and share.

Thanks!

Important Books To Read

How does one choose? There are lots of books to read and picking the top five for me would be a hard task indeed. I love to read and in point of fact cannot fathom the mind that does not read.

Kanye West reportedly said he was a proud non-reader of books. He did not like to read and would not read. Well, okay, I reckon that is one life choice. For me? I am a bibliophile of the first order.

My great disappointment in my younger life was the knowledge that working as a clerk in a book store would not pay the bills. The work was awesome and I loved the environment. Sadly, you cannot feed yourself very well on minimum wage.

Again, how do you choose? How do you choose five(5)? I really don’t think I can, not without whittling it down a bit.

You see you can pick top five novels. For me that would be, in no particular order:

  1. IT, by Stephen King
  2. The Stand, by Stephen King
  3. Freckles, by Gene Stratton-Porter
  4. The Santaroga Barrier, by Frank Herbert
  5. The Wolf and the Dove, by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss

I almost included George Orwell’s 1984 but in my mind that would be filed under prophecy and economic literary docudrama books.

IT, by Stephen King

ITWhy IT? Because my childhood, like Ben Hanscomb’s, was filled with bullies and a heart wrenching crush on a girl I would never dare to talk to, too much anyway. I remember walking into my 4th grade class at A.H. Watwood and there she sat. She glowed, she shined, if a 4th grader could die from a vision on that day I was in mortal peril. When I read Freckles guess who was the Limberlost Angel? You got it, her name was…

Anyways, getting back to IT, when I was in the lower grades, before I shot up, my grandmother had to buy me what were called ‘husky’ size pants. Yes, I was a bit heavy.

When I read about Ben’s crush on Beverly, I immediately identified with the kid. Also, the idea of a bunch of innocents taking on some devil spider that was the embodiment of one of what I guess was one of the old god’s of Chaos kept my eyes bolted to the pages.

Childhood is often filled with well defined terrors. I like the way Stephen King defined it. Childhood is filled with well-defined terrors and passionate, inflamed dreams and loves that give way to the grinding reality of adulthood, where the fears are diffuse and heavy and completely unable to be appropriately grappled with and stabbed to death like St. George killing the dragon.

Yeah, there was a lot of paraphrasing there, but I am reasonable sure Stephen King would be at least to some degree okay with it.

If I told you how many times I have read IT you would be certain I would be in dire need of drug therapy for a horrible case of OCD. I don’t know but what you would be right in that assessment, but that is the way I read. If I love a book I tend to want to read it repeatedly. I suppose I have read it more than 20 times over the years and I no doubt will read it again when I retire.

The Stand, by Stephen King

TheStandA world ravaged by a super influenza strain that wipes out 95% of humanity and leaves the 5% trying to survive while the forces of good and evil make them pawns in a game of life and death.

A loner from Arnette, Texas named Stu Redman winds up more or less in charge of a group of good folks who have been called by God to stand as His proxies in a battle against evil, controlled by a devil prince called Flagg.

You know, I hate to admit it, but I think I liked the book because it was about a world that was emptied out. Naturally, I would be one of the survivors and so it was just a given that I would consider the consequences of no government left, anywhere, and that you could do as you liked as long as you exercised some human decency.

Of course, there is that little inconvenient truth of 95% of the people dying would completely and forever suck.

Freckles

FrecklesThis book by Gene Stratton-Porter is classed as a children’s classic. For me, it is a good read about the good guy coming out on top. Besides, I read the book not too long after I found out my biological father abandoned me and my mom shortly before my birth.

Never giving up, never backing down, always being there putting it all on the line for those who have faith in you, this is what Freckles is all about.

The Santaroga Barrier

TheSantarogaBarrierWe are all asleep, wrapped in a cocoon of advertising, prescription drugs and political lies that keep us with our faces firmly under the boot of those who think themselves superior to us by birth and education.

Again, calling on George Orwell’s 1984 I am reminded of something that was said towards the end of the book:

What does the future look like in our Utopia? Imagine a human face, looking up in abject misery. Now imagine a big cleated boot, driving that face into the dirt.

This book was really remarkable because it showed what people could be like, if they wished. Or if, as in the case of this story, they had the right pharmaceutical to help them free their consciousness.

While I am ambivalent about that, Frank Herbert does a good job of leading you into the world where what the Santarogans are doing to their children and to outsiders who come and pass the test of whether they are awake is perfectly acceptable and honorable.

It may be time for me to read this one again.

The Wolf and The Dove

thewolfandthedoveThis was a straight up heaving bosom and bare chested hero along with the dusky hued bad guy, but it was a great read.

I don’t currently have it in my library and frankly, I may never make the effort to re-acquire it but it was a great read. It made an impression because I have never forgotten it. Every time someone brings up the issue of what books did or do you love the most, The Wolf and The Done is on the short list.

Other Books

Want some ideas? The BBC’s Big Read is a good place to start. Go through the list; you might be surprised at how many you have already read.

Best Regards,

Tim and MJ

Benefits of Baroque and Classical Music

Baroque Music Make You Smarter

Baroque music makes you smarter, healthier, more mentally well-adjusted and athletic. How’s that for a laundry list of good things to be had?

Baroque music is said to have a positive effect on the brain in terms of learning and retaining information. Whether that is actually true or not, I can attest to the idea that I get more work done when listening to Baroque.

Something about alpha wave stimulation increases one’s retention while relieving stress from your brain. The other thing that just occurred to me was whether it worked because it works or if it works because I believe it works.

Just be aware that there are folks out there who strongly disagree with the idea that Baroque or Classical music can improve your mental function. While they are certainly entitle to have and to hold their opinion on the matter, I take the position that it helps me. If you want to see if it will help you, then trying it out is in order.

Some of you young folks who feel classical is not cool, or boring or whatever need to remember that Baroque was the rock music of its era.  Try it out for yourself and see if you receive any of the benefits listed here.

Effects of Baroque and Classical Music

The story is that Baroque and Classical music in general can:

  1. Lift your spirits and improve your outlook
  2. Relieve anxiety and lower stress levels
  3. Helps relieve Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
  4. Boosts your creativity because the music helps you see things in different ways.
  5. It can help you raise your test scores.
  6. Study for school.
  7. Improves performance in general.

Knowledge, Understanding, Wisdom, Correct and Clear Thinking.

Senbonzakura – Lindsey Stirling – Baroque or Classical?

Is this Baroque music? I honestly don’t know, but it sounds like it to my ear.  Violin music, especially that which seems to have Irish influence, appeals to my ear and calms me down at the same time it inspires me to action.

Baroque and Classical Music’s Effects on Health

Some of the positive effects of this type of music include

  • Blood pressure reduction
  • Stroke recovery
  • Post partum symptom relief
  • Reduces feelings of fatigue
  • Alleviates depression
  • Improves athletic performance

Blood pressure can be lowered in many cases by listening to 30 minutes of Baroque or Classical music.  In addition to general recover in the stroke patient’s ability to function,  fine-grained neuroanatomical modifications have been shown to be present after a time in the brain.

This is worth quoting and referencing for folks with epilepsy affecting their families:

Anti-seizure effect: The latest 2014 study revealed that listening to Mozart K 448 (Sonata for Two Pianos in D major) reduced the seizure recurrence and epileptiform discharges in children epilepsy. The antiepileptic effect of Mozart’s sonata has been earlier demonstrated by Taiwanese scientists.1

Truthfully, when I started researching for this post I was not expecting the range of positive effects to be so broad. It makes you smarter, healthier and more athletic.

The litany of benefits is so long as to be astonishing to me, even today, when I had long thought I knew the benefits to be had. I am even more inclined now to make sure my future kids get a good daily dose of Baroque and Classical music.

Benefits To the Home Based Business Owner

Whether you are a member of the growing community of work at home moms, work at home dads, or the other folks who have made the transition from the cubicle to the kitchen, maximizing your energy levels and recuperative capabilities is critical.  These musical styles can help.

The aid in migraine headaches, energy levels and recuperation from stress levels are things to which I can personally attest. It simply works wonders for me.

TimSingleton

Better Deals, More Cash Back …yes, on Baroque and Classical music, too.

Want to get paid for giving money away?

What Is Cashback?

What Is Cashback?

Being in business for yourself gives you more opportunities to enjoy life.
Being in business for yourself gives you more opportunities to enjoy life.

My gut tells me that when the credit card companies began to discover cash back was akin to pouring gasoline on a hot spark plug when it came to promoting sales volume, it caused probably one of the biggest balance transfers in economic history. Google gives the brief definition of:

denoting a form of incentive offered to buyers of certain products whereby they receive a cash refund after making their purchase.

…when searching for cash back. What most folks are looking for, however, is what are the best cashback credit cards, where are the best cash back sites? Now, in the normal cashback canon above, we are presented with the unspoken assumption that you have to pick one card and one cash back program. Combining different savings is a hit or miss kind of thing. Well, not anymore, it isn’t.

How To Maximize Your Credit Card Rewards

Well, I am reasonably certain that I have found the top cash back site. It allows you to not only get more cash back, but you can stack it on top of the cash back programs you are already using. Instead of getting 1% cash back, or 2% cashback you can enjoy 6% additional savings and sometimes more in addition to your current program.

Cash Back Comparison

So, you did an exhaustive comparison of all the programs out there and you came up with what you consider to be the very best, most put real money in your pocket card and are just thrilled with it. Great! Now add 6%, or more, to it. Howzat thrill you? It fires me up, that is for sure!

What You Earn Versus What You Keep

Now, most of my readers are either active in the business opportunity, online marketing and related spaces or are interested in them.  They all know the old adage of it not being about how much money you make but what you are able to keep so that you can put it to work for your future. I like the following quote even better:

It’s not how much money you make, but how much money you keep, how hard it works for you, and how many generations you keep it for. –Robert Kiyosaki

I like this quote because it not only addresses me and my immediate family, it addresses the future. This business for me is not just about me getting that Jaguar with the disappearing post beams and the that completely awesome ‘follow me’ window projection. It is also about ensuring that my kids, their kids and even their kids are educated with as much security as this old man can provide them. Friends of mine say it is not their problem to provide. Well, Solomon says a wise man leaves and inheritance for his children; that is good enough for me.

Folks, the cash back rewards chase is over.  You can now earn high digit cash back rewards on the stores at which you already shop. Click here to get signed up for free.

Happy New Year’s everyone!

Definiteness of Purpose

Hidden Knowledge

Back when I listened to a fellow going on about how the ‘elite’ not only think differently than the rest of us but also had access to different books than the rest of us, it seemed as if a light went off in my mind. Suddenly, I could see a centuries old trail of hidden knowledge concerning living a successful life unfolding before my eyes were I able to get to the correct libraries.

I don’t know why it was such a revelation. We know that some of the prophets of old wrote down many things and, for whatever reason, we no longer have those writings. Some have been recovered; still others are still around but the supposed authorities claim they are not ‘approved.’

That was the same CD on which I first heard about the unabridged version of Napoleon Hill’s ‘Think and Grow Rich.’

The Law of Success In 16 Lessons

The deal was that ‘Think and Grow Rich’ was a watered down version of what was really conveyed to Napoleon Hill by Andrew Carnegie.

“Why was it watered down?” thunders the folks who paid extra for the show so they could sit in the Greek chorus section.

Well, I will tell you. The scuttlebutt is that Henry Ford did not like it, did not like it at all, that Andrew Carnegie was trying to educate the masses on what it took to be successful. It appears in this story that in Henry Ford’s mind people who were born to poverty may have very well been put there for a purpose just as he was apparently put in his place to be stinking nasty rich. My thinking at the time was maybe Henry Ford had his own version of Divine Right of King’s or billionaires running in the background of his brain.

Once I found out that ‘Think and Grow Rich’ had an unabridged version I was just as mad as three monkeys on methamphetamine to get it. So, I went hunting and found it. As you can guess from the section heading for this the title turned out to be ‘The Law of Success In 16 Lessons.’

As I worked my way through the course material, the veracity of the story about Henry Ford was called into question simply because Napoleon Hill credited him with so much in contributing to this work. The CD version gave the impression that it was dictated to Napoleon Hill by Andrew Carnegie but the course itself makes it clear some 40+ men contributed much over the 20+ years it took to finish the work.

First Principles

First principles is a concept that relates to starting over when what you have been doing is not working. ‘This is a football’ is also a way of starting with first principles every time you start something, an approach that history says works.

I am starting with first principles and that means Definiteness of Purpose is on the menu today.

Definiteness of Purpose

Do you have a definite purpose?

I do.

My definite purpose is to be free from a job and to free 1,000 other folks from a job. This means I have to become the leader capable of helping 1,000 individuals through the process of becoming the caliber of folks who create their own wealth and subsistence from whole cloth. That is a tall order but I feel it possible because I am certain that there are more than a few folks who get tired of getting up every day and going to work to make someone else’s dreams come true.

My Awakening

I was sitting at work one day, long ago and far away as the story goes, when I say bolt upright in my chair. I realized in my goings and comings between planes, trains and automobiles that my job boiled down to two essential, pitiful duties.

My job was to solve small problems for folks like me who worked all day while I waited for overpaid to schedule meetings in which they create truly large problems for me to solve so they could take the credit and probably a larger paycheck.

Now, I don’t mind solving problems. I am good at it. What I did object to was the creation of problems for me to solve so someone else could justify their paychecks. It just seemed to never fail to leave one feeling inordinately chafed in the sensitive areas. When the novelty of this epiphany wore off, the thrill was gone with that job, too. My definiteness of purpose became a bright, glaring, white hot purple searchlight that regularly burned away the unimportant. Helping 1,000 folks reach self-employment would not only make my life better, it would

    1. Make 1,000 folks’ lives better
    2. Make the world a better place because 1,000 folks could now participate in the process of making it better instead of trapped in the day jail of a corporatism prison.
    3. Out of that 1,000 folks, many will need to hire employees, generating jobs

As I thought about my individual goals, I realized that it was an honorable goal because while I would benefit, the world would benefit even more with 1,001 more folks able to act. So, what’s your purpose? Here is a short summary and yes, I am quoting the book:

Definiteness of Purpose

Definiteness of Purpose
is the starting point of all achievement.

Don’t be like a ship at sea without a rudder,
powerless and directionless.
Decide what you want, find out how to get it,
and then take daily action toward achieving your goal.
You will get exactly and only
what you ask and work for.
Make up your mind today what it is you want and then
start today to go after it! Do it now!

<i>Successful people move on their own initiative,
but they know where they are going before they start.</I>

-Napoleon Hill

Do You Know What You Want?

Why Are You In business?

Being in business for yourself gives you more opportunities to enjoy life.
Being in business for yourself gives you more opportunities to enjoy life.

“I want to be free,” might be your kneejerk reaction. That is nice, but is it true?

“I want to be rich,” you say. Okay, but why? What is it that being rich will give you? We all know too many stories of folks who have an excess of wealth who sadly pulled the plug because they ‘could not take it anymore.’

What is it that being rich and being free of the need for a job will give you? I know what it will give me. It will give me the ability to say what is on my mind without it being a possible threat to my job.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want the ability to be rude or just unconcerned with others but, folks, let’s face it. There is a lot wrong in the world and the news is full on a regular basis of someone getting canned because they took an unpopular position.

What Do You Want?

Unless and until you really know what it is that success in your business will bring you besides money and free time, I don’t know that you can convey the energy and passion of working with you to prospects.

What Is Important To You?

Lifestyle? That is fine, just embrace it and get passionate about it. I will be straight up about the fact that I have no great desire to have a new car all the time but boy, howdy do I ever want one of the new Corvettes now that the Stingray has been brought back! I also love the idea of having a ship with trans-Pacific capability.

To me those are about adventure, not riches and lifestyle.

Security? Yes, security is more secure while being a successful and profitable business owner. Business owners do not go to bed wondering whether their jobs are secure or if they will be downsized.

Family time is too short in your life? I am fortunate in that I hate the idea of leaving my wife for 8 hours at the office. Not everyone is in that lucky position, but working from home makes that want real.

Constitutional Convention

Sitting down with yourself or with your significant other and determining just, exactly, what it is you or the two of you want is a good way to spend a Saturday. Make an event of it. Plan a picnic and a place and just talk it out.

Call it my or our family or couple’s Constitutional Convention. Let’s really look at the future and decide what it is we really want. What are our core principles? What are the top ten things or qualities we want to be pillars of how we live our lives.

Wishes Are Cold Comfort; Passions Are Hot

Figure out what kind of day makes you feel like it could not get any better than this and determine what would have to be in place for that day to occur. Smell the air in your mind of that day. Feel the ease of your body knowing you are where you want to be and that anything, and I mean anything, that is troubling you now is a thing of the past.

Then let’s talk about what it would take to make that happen for you.

Regards,

TimSingleton

Robin Williams Dead In Apparent Suicide

Robin Williams, Dead at 63

Funny Man, Robin Williams, will be missed
Funny Man, Robin Williams, will be missed

NBC10.com is reporting that Robin Williams is dead from an apparent suicide. As I have said in other venues, my first reaction was that it was one of those bogus false stories that some pointy headed morons think so funny to perpetrate on the public. Sadly, it appears to be true. I know he will be missed by his friends and associates, both past and present. Depression can take down the strongest of us, it seems.

Mork From Ork

My first introduction to Robin Williams was in Mork From Ork where he portrayed as alien visitor with unique interpretations of human activities. Lots of those unique takes I have come to realize had quite a bit of unique insight in them if you took the time to really think about what he said.

Rob Williams, Actor, Teacher

Likewise, his portrayal of teachers in ‘Goodwill Hunting,’ and ‘Dead Poets’ Society’ gave Robin Williams the opportunity to portray teachers as we all wish we had had but only a few of us were lucky enough to actually enjoy. The act of a man helping young men to actually develop the capacity to think and evaluate what is good and right in life is a heavy burden. Robin Williams’s portrayal of a man who actually understood the value and responsibility of his position as a teacher has stuck with me these many years.

Rest In Peace, Robin Williams.

You can read NBC10.com’s article here.
