Texas is Fascinating : Agree or Disagree

For those of you who don't know this, when people joke about everything in Texas being big, they're joking and they're telling you the truth. Grew up in South Florida but developed a fascination with the 28 th state admitted to the Union when I watched the movie "Giant" starring Rock Hudson, Elizabeth Taylor, and James Dean.

Dr. Dobson's Parenting Advice is Proven

Dr. James Dobson is a well-known psychologist who specializes in advice on parenting (especially for new parents).


Focus on the Family, his non-profit ministry provide counseling and resources on marriage, parenting and other family matters; and he has also authored several books on these topics.



Dr. James Dobson is a well-known psychologist and the founder of Focus on the Family, a non-profit ministry that supplies advice and resources on marriage, parenting and other family matters. He describes two types of children: the compliant child – an obedient child that heeds good advice and follows a path to peace; versus the defiant child – who is the exact opposite. He says most children are “in between” those two extremes.

Having given birth to eleven children – all living – all raised except for one – I can state unequivocally that Dr. Dobson is correct. Most children are between the two extremes. However, if you happen to get one that is wholly defiant – my advice is … PRAY!! Pray you survive them until they reach the age of eighteen and then … send them on their way!


English: James Dobson.
You see children must realize that one day if they live, they will be the same age as mommie and daddy. If they have children of their own, mommy and daddy will no longer have to explain why the “rules” were so flipping ludicrous!! There are many who claim to have programs that work if you happen to be raising a difficult and trying child. Some of them will even offer you their programs free of charge. Quite frankly, everybody has to wade through those muddy murky waters on their own. What may work for your family could cause chaos and mayhem in another person’s home. So tread very cautiously.

I can tell you that as a young parent, reading the Dobson books was extremely helpful. Many who might not be of the Christian persuasion probably steer clear of his writings. But the advice he offers is very generic and can be applied regardless of one’s religious beliefs or nationality or ethnicity.

As I stated earlier, my babies are all full grown now, with only one remaining. In five more years, she’ll be stepping out on her own. Five years? That’s half a blink of an eye. Really it is. My oldest child has already passed the over the hill mark. Back in my day, “over the hill” used to be age 30. It seems like it was just yesterday when we were teaching him how to walk. Though the memories are sweet, of a truth, my husband and I look forward to the “empty nest years” with great anticipation.

But getting to my point: If you are a new parent, and mommy and daddy are no available for you to ask them about the “rules”, pick up a book by Dr. Dobson. No doubt you can find one or more at your local library or even a church library. If not, his books are available for purchase online.

Celebrating the Genius of Einstein and #GR101

Started scanning a tweet stream this morning and found out that folks were celebrating the 101st anniversary of Einstein's Theory of General Relativity.  Collecting quotes is my hobby and in particular, always like to read what Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955) had to say.  Plucked this one from the Twitter feed.  It was shared by George Shiber.  (See embedded tweet below.)

Mr. Einstein died the year I was born.  It's not like we would have ever been best buds, but I fancy myself sometimes having a conversation with him.  Were we having a tête-à-tête, my response to his statement above would be:

"Not even a genius like you, Mr. Einstein, can comprehend all of God's thoughts. But if a fool would desire to understand just one of God's thoughts, they'd come out ahead.  (Wink. Wink.)"

Einstein always acknowledged The One Who gave him his brilliant mind.  That's what I most admired about him.

This one is not my favorite HUB.  It’s the HUB with my favorite title.
In my opinion, what really makes this HUB so cool is the image of Samson and Delilah.
The winner and still champion, i.e. my favorite HUB.
