The Handwriting on the Wall

If you type "The Handwriting on the Wall" into google you get all kinds of items relating to all kinds of things where because of certain happenings in life, someone can sense what is going to happen. They can see the handwriting on the wall in a real life kind of way.
That happens to us many times in life but we don't think of it in those terms.
I often look at my life and the happenings in it, and try to read the handwriting on the wall. Sometimes it is as clear as can be and sometimes you have to specualate and use your memory and history in your life. I see clear Handwriting on the Wall concerning many things.

A Circus

As I cleaned my house today I turned the TV on and watched the confirmation hearings of Judge Alito to the Supreme Court. I could not help but think I was watching a circus at times.
Senator Kennedy performs to the tune of his colleagues and tells of his dislike of the Judge and how many mistakes he has made. Senator Biden, he just performs, for the sake of performing.
I would hope that the majority of those present on that committee have a more mature attitude of the process they are participating in.
I know as others do that Judge Alito has a much better record and more integrity than some on the committee he is defending himself against.

The first post of 2006

This is the first post of the new year. I am going to try to be more consistent in the new year. I would like to post on at least one of my blog sites every day, but it often doesn't happen.
I just purchased a new website so I will have that to update too, so who knows how bad the poor old blogsites will suffer.
I was reading the other day about new extensions for domain names, one was .name. So my new website will be The new extension is meant exclusively for "personal websites"
It will be a site about me, not the town or the village or history or anything, just about me. (oh how boring you say) I promise to make it as interesting as I can. People insist I should write a book, so my life must have something interesting in it.
Wednesday is the organizational meeting for the town, we get sworn in and set up the government for the coming year. That is always good. So lets hope there are 363 more posts in 2006, and have a Happy New Year.
