Old drivers speaking Latin and going to church

primoris Try to avoid taking attitude with older and less-attentive drivers. They are going exist, they may make you late to something that probably doesn't matter all that much anyway, but they've paid their dues. Just breathe through it. Don't be going all road-rage-y on them.
Addendum: Feel free to flip off and honk at any younger, totally inattentive and dangerous drivers. But, be careful - some of these morons pack heat.

duo Learn enough Latin to help you understand the origins of the words we use here in English speaking countries. This ability will also help greatly where they speak French, German or Spanish. I'm not asking you to find a prehistoric relic to grill you on subjective forms and passive tenses, I'm just asking that you take a minute and learn a little Latin.

obduro Don't think that just because some people attend churches or synagogues or temples they have any kind of stronger moral integrity than you or anybody else. Attending church doesn't make you a good person any more than parking in a garage makes you a car.  

(And, yes - I borrowed this idea from some silly facebook thing.)

Who you is?

My photo

I love raindrops on roses and whatnot, but even more than that I totally dig finding dollars in clothes I haven't worn in ages, live music, social networking and search engine optimization, research,, homemade beer, home grown stuff, writing, talking, laughing, green movements, debate, dialog, dumpster diving, time travel, time-out chairs, psychology, meals that last for hours, pranks, astral projection, meaningful lives, the kindness of strangers, trains, trucks and tractors, cowboys, horses, deer, eagles, random occurrences, modern tragedies, small appliances, good socks and sturdy shoes, shiny objects, painting, playing stringed instruments and singing harmony, pulling perfect feather pillows out of the freezer on hot and humid Kansas summer nights, rodeos and county fairs, brokers, organics and authenticity, my kids, their kids and my huge extended family. I am a hugger and I probably laugh AND talk way too much.
