How easy it is to start out gun-ho to go on the road to recovery and then wake up one day and feel your confidence has disappeared. Panic sets and you don’t want to continue. It’s only fear. It’s a distraction you can pass by taking a break. Go for a ride to the beach and unwind, visit family who support you or call a friend from AA who has accomplished overcoming this stage you are in that day. They have all been there.
America is headed, at best, for mediocrity, and, at worst, for shipwreck, for two reasons: It has turned away from God, and it has turned away from the U.S. Constitution. -- Robert E. Kelly, 2014
Part I examined America's turning away from God. Part II deals with turning away from the Constitution. I begin in the late 19th century under two presidents, Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson.
Turned Away From The U.S. Constitution
This week Town council will vote on a land swap that could allow the Barnstable shooting range to re-open, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Mary Czajkowski is gearing up for the upcoming school year, and state funding will allow Cape Cod Community College to launch a new program next year.
America is headed for mediocrity, or for shipwreck, for two reasons: It turned away from God; it turned away from the U.S. Constitution. -- Robert E. Kelly, 2014
I'll make the argument for the first half of the above premise in this column; in a second one, I'll address the shredding of the Constitution.
Turned Away From God
God's law, among believers, guides man's moral behavior.
By Jack Sheedy
Twentieth century poet, essayist, hymnist, part-time church janitor Thomas J. McSheey suffered from social anxiety disorder, which may explain why he spent so much time alone in his vegetable garden contemplating the mysteries of the universe. One day, while weeding, he suddenly stumbled upon an ironclad proof for the existence of God. He could see it all clearly in his mind, if-then statements leading from theorem to proof of a Deity. But then he became distracted picking peas and forgot all the details.
We have shellfishing do’s and don’ts on this episode of Barnstable Today.
One of my readers contacted me for a natural solution to a common but embarrassing problem, smelly feet. Sweaty feet and foot odor are quite common, especially among dancers, athletes or as the hot weather sets in. Wearing shoes and socks that don’t breathe or rough, dry skin on your feet can promote foot odor. Bromhidrosis, foot odor, is due to bacteria that breed and multiply in warm feet, socks, and shoes. The soles of your feet have thousands of sweat glands that produce perspiration, which can breakdown in contact with certain bacteria, causing an odor.
I love to sing. I sing in public, I sing in the bathroom while I’m brushing my teeth (that can be messy), I sing while I’m cooking, and even while I’m working. At the office, people know when I’m coming down the hall, as my sounds precede me. As a result of that happy propensity, and an ill-advised governmental policy, it’s unlikely that I’ll be traveling to Winnipeg any time soon.
