Al has some really nice photos of snow scenes in his blog tonight

Yeah, those are some pretty pictures Barney, snow in the desert always looks so weird. I'm just thankful I'm not the one taking snow pictures.

Haha. I actually could read the price of diesel when I clicked the photo. I couldn't in the photo yesterday, or the day before. Can't remember when. It's around $4 here.

Cool! I never know what the Internet is going to do to the pictures until I put them on the Internet, and then it's too late.

I've always believed that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes we know the reason and sometimes we don't. There have been times in my life that I've changed plans because of a bad vibe, but no logical reason, only to find out later that what I did may have saved my life. I firmly believe in free will but also believe something or someone helps guide our way. When there is a contradiction, our free will will control. It sounds a little crazy when it's written down but living it is much easier. Have fun, be safe.

Nice to hear from you again Darrell. That's an interesting, and insightful way of looking at life. Everyone needs something to believe in that helps guide us through life, and being raised in the South I grew up as a Baptist. But somewhere along the way I lost a lot of the Baptist dogma, but kept some of the basics such as "Do Unto Others." I think it's possible that the rise of TV preachers with their constant hustling for a buck, and so many of them either ending up in jail, or should be in jail, sort of soured me on religion.

I think I finally figured out God's plan vs free will. It's like being a parent trying to give your child all the help you can give them then watching as they go off and make their own decisions.

Yes that's a very good analogy Linda. And the "be a blessing" advice is also quite good, and its good because it simplifies things, as does what I tend to live by which is "do unto others." Both of those quotes mean almost exactly the same thing just said in a different way. Either one admonishes not to harm other people in any way, physically, mentally, or financially. And if we all did that the world would be a better place.
