  • Based on the current social and political climate, we may need to redefine normal.

    Aug 12, 2012
    I am not one that ever wanted to be classified as a psychometrician though I did study school psychology and have done my share of testing. It’s funny though that in so many of the psychometric protocols they use the term “normative range” to define behavior that was normal, abhorrent, adjusted, maladjusted, average etc. I remember those days and just had a thought. In light of today’s social and political climate, the back stabbing, back biting, viciousness, endless lies and innuendo compounded by years of “reality” tv shows and the glorification of people who you would never want to live in your neighborhood (planet?) that perhaps we need to take another look at these instruments to make sure that they in fact reflect society standards. I imagined a few scenarios and wanted to share one of them.

  • The ACA conference “debacle-“one humble opinion

    Aug 09, 2012
    By now you have either experienced (as I have) or have heard about the “debacle” that was the release of the acceptance and rejection letters for the ACA conference next year. If you haven’t here it is in a nutshell: there was a mistake where 700 or so acceptance letters were sent out for proposals that for whatever reason were not really accepted to present at the conference next year. As one of those who received the letter and the resultant elation followed by the “crush of defeat” in learning that they were not actually accepted, I can tell you that in layman’s terms, it sucked; it sucked big time but let’s put things in perspective here. Nothing was taken away except the excitement that we had from thinking we had been accepted. We had not been accepted in the first place, so there was no real demotion or anything personally against us. It was simply a mistake.

  • The symbolism of “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.”

    Jul 24, 2012
    Most religions have a rendition of “ashes to ashes and dust to dust” to discuss the cycle of life; how we physically came to be and where we go physically when we are done on this great planet of ours. Dust, not much really yet so symbolic; dust is everywhere, it is in everything. We breathe it, we clean it, and we build with it. It really is appropriate that we start and end as it.

  • Sometimes you have to tear down in order to rebuild

    Jul 10, 2012
    As a naturist I love the feel, the look and the sensation of being immersed in nature. I love the sounds of Lindsley Brook as it flows through the farm. I love the sound of the turkeys as they roam the fields; I also love the sound of an antique tractor chugging across the farm in search of more work. Until recently I hated the sound of chainsaws. I saw them as destruction; another wooded lot lay bare, more houses in a subdivision. Other then when I heard them after a major storm, I rarely saw a practical purpose for them.

  • Rush Limbaugh moves to Costa Rica

    Jun 29, 2012
    By the time you read this Rush Limbaugh likely will have announced that he is renouncing his United States citizenship and moving along with his current wife to Costa Rica. The fate of his show is likely unknown but in all reality with modern technology it could continue in his new locale. He announced this move upon hearing the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold what he affectionately refers to as “Obamacare.” Standing proud and holding firm on his previous statements dating back to 2010, Limbaugh likely said his move would commence immediately as he had stated it would should “Obamacare” become law…
