5-31-09 (Random Thoughts)

Today is Sunday.

A day of worship for some, the second day of the weekend for most.

For me, I see it mostly as a day of worship. In my current job, I work every Saturday in order to have Sunday off. Otherwise, the world's largest retailer would have me working both Saturday and Sunday and give me days off during the week. As it is, my days off are Sunday and Thursday.

I miss the routine of the former factory job. Monday-Friday, every once in a while a Saturday, no Sunday. The pay was better too. But that's the past.

I was going to make comments about politics, but I changed my mind.

Sometimes I feel like..........

*I don't have a brain in my head.
*I'm the biggest idiot on earth.
*I'm not worthy to breathe air.
*I'm just a drain on society.

It is at those times that I must remember......God loves me, no matter what I've done, or thought, or said. That is what matters.

Just remember......God is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to eternal life. That means you.

Until next time, keep your stick on the ice.

A new entry

Wow.....what a concept.

Most of my activity online has been on my Facebook page. Facebook has been great for me because I have found many friends and acquaintences I had lost touch with over the years. So it's been mainly there that you will find me. If I ever have any coherent thoughts again, I will post them here.

Tonight marks the end of the line for Jay Leno on The Tonight Show. Seventeen years and one week after taking over for Johnny Carson, Leno steps aside for Conan O'Brien. My personal feeling is that had Carson been making the choice 17 years ago, David Letterman would have been his successor. Carson was pushed out by NBC, and the network chose Leno. Mainly because Letterman's late night show was turning a profit. The fact that Letterman continued on "Late Night" for 13 months after Leno got 'Tonight' speaks to his sense of loyalty. Finally, he could take it no more.

Just as the show changed when Leno took over, it will change again beginning Monday night when Conan becomes host. He has two things going for him right away: his band, the Max Weinberg 7, is making the move with him, and Andy Richter, his sidekick on Late Night for 7 years, is the new announcer.

As I did on Mr. Carson's last night, I will watch Leno's final show. I prefer Letterman, but for historical purposes I want to see how Leno goes out.

Until next time, keep your stick on the ice.
