During Thanksgiving I got to spend some time with my family in California and was reminded again of just how brilliant the Johns girls are. (Candis Christina & Cami) The Johns boys (George Reg & Curtis) on the other hand, now what was it all our teachers said about us, ahh yeah now I remember “they didn’t apply themselves”. The reason I bring this all up is because we finally have a Johns boy who may smoke the Johns girls. Presently I’m proud to say my Daughter Cami is finishing up her Senior year at Wellington High in the honors program.
Over in California my Niece Christina is getting ready to graduate from UC Irvine where she is most likely hovering around a 4.0 grade average and my oldest Daughter Candis is busy working on her MBA while bringing up my Grandson Nathaniel for me. Candis told me that a recently she’d been busy studying for a test she had an accounting test from the Wharton School Of Business coming up when she suddenly realized “N” who is in the 3rd grade at Crestview Preparatory School had a social studies test which he hadn’t studied for it. She was very upset with herself for forgetting and also miffed at Nathaniel for not remembering to study for it but when she chastised him for it all he said was … I don’t have to study I know all that stuff! Candis got a 96.4 and I’m sure you saw this coming, Nathaniel got a perfect score.

In HBO’s “Game Of Thrones” the Queen who is preparing the 14 year old virgin Princess for marriage says to her … Remember this my little Dove, the only time a Woman has any power over a Man is when he wants what’s between her legs. Surely that’s not true anymore.
Deborah Cremer recently asked me if Cami did any regular charity work. I told her I wouldn’t know because if she did, unlike her old man she would do it quietly.

Even though I was smitten by the Hunny Bunny the first time I ever saw her my demons never seemed to like her.

Jim Hilliard always introduces his wife Barbara as his first wife but I think she looks more like his 2nd or 3rd wife what with how beautiful she looks not to mention all the baubles she wears.
The first step towards becoming successful is wanting to.
It would appear to me that more people paying fewer taxes economically makes more sense than fewer people paying more taxes.
According to Jim Hilliard I used to be one of the best detail guys in the world but over time though I evolved into concepts and philosophy mainly because I’d discovered that as much as the world needs detail folks they just don’t want to pay ’em.

“Averaging” was invented in the the 1930’s so companies could predict where everything was going so they could stay ahead of the curve and anticipate what kinds of products to bring out. When Elvis, The Beatles, and the Smart Phone came along, it ruined everything.

I think it’s only fair that when the President leaves office the government employees should have to leave with him.
