Hyland’s Horrendous Hogwash

RE: My - ADDICTIONS -

J'nia Fowler

All makes perfect sense to me. Just think, what would happen if we stopped consuming these legal poisons and got healthy and somewhat fit, who would stand to lose?

The diet industry, the magazine industry "the ones which elevate success stories while making the overweight readers feel like marginalized failures, etc. would all have to change or fold. Oh and what about the fitness clubs which make oodles off of you by telling you that your BMI is too high?

Too high for what? It has become evident to me and to many people whom I have talked with that it is primarily the lean members of our society which get cancer and Alzheimers. The people who have a bit of fat on them carry the toxins in their fat and not in the brain or internal organs.

Of course I am not referring to the morbidly obese individual as being healthier than a moderately thin person. They have other problems to contend with. Just a few thoughts here. Thanks for stimulating my grey cells this morning.

Cheers, J'nia

DEAR LOVELY WOMAN WAY UP IN CANADA SOMEWHERE -

? BMI ? Bowel Movement Intelligence / Quotient ?

You got all of it right! I have a bit of a BELLY on me - and my “significant other” Lady Friend constantly teases me about IT!

I told her what my Dad told me:

“If you got a good TOOL - build a SHED over IT!” SO I DID!
Peace - Abundance - Love ... But mostly LUV !!! TK>

An very well constructed, researched and making sense article, hard for me to say that I read it with the eyes of an Ed brother and my only commentary to this most excellent writings is, were you sniffing glue at the time? OMG! I was funny! didn't I?


Keep your quill erested.

EDvard, encyclopedic Ole Brother

Dear Ole “Psycho” er, ah, um, I mean “Cyclo” Ed Bro -

Your wit is only surpassed by your magnanimous WAISTLINE!

And NO - it was NOT glue - ‘twas just a few Jiggles of COCOnut JACK
RUM - ? do coconuts have cocaine in them?

How about COCAO BEANS? Any COKE?

IF YOU - burn hard, black chunks of COKE in your BBQ grill - will you get HIGH?

You want my Quill to What? Erest ?
Is that a rest from email?
Did you mean Arrested? Or just Rested?

Your CYCLOpedic - (does that mean Walking Book?) -
Prowess tends to corn-fuse me!

Drink 2 COKES n’ call me in the morning! TK ... almost ED Cousin!

Just this morning, CH.2 - two beautiful 9 week-old Male Wolf Cubs - with explanations of their pros and cons, and how Social wolves are. These guys were from Busch Gardens, and will soon be introduced to a pack down there.

"Cats n' rats n' e-le-phants..." - NOAH knew what he was doin' !

Peace - Tom.

RE: My - MATERIALISM -

NOTE: UNSURE, BUT THINK MAYBE HISTORY WAS MADE HERE!
ALL THREE ‘ED’ BROTHERS COMMENTED WITHIN HOURS OF ONE ANOTHER! I AM SO ‘HONORED’ I ALMOST SHAT MYSELF!

THIS SHEER FACT MAY NOT MAKE ME RICH, BUT I COULD BECOME FAMOUS BECAUSE OF ‘THEIR’ INFAMY!

IN HONOR OF THIS OCCASION, I SHALL SEND THE SAME REPLY TO ALL THREE OF MY FAVORITE ‘STOOGES.’

Mr. Ed

Show Me a “Fat-Cat” - I’ll Show You -
One Who Does Not Care!

By far, the case with the vast majority of them, but there are a few who actually do attempt to help others. One who comes to mind immediately is Brad Pitt. He helped build low cost housing in New Orleans after Katrina, and he gives millions to charitable causes, every year.

If I ever become a 'Fat Cat,' I want to be just like him.


YES ED - PEE-WEE - BRAD IS ONE OF THE FEW EXCEPTIONS!

YES ED-VARDK - YER MA IS RIGHT - HOW DARE I ATTEMPT AT SMARTNESS? AND ... ‘TURD-HEAD’ CAN KISS MY WADDA-CALL-IT - CAN!

YES - ED - JERSEY DEVIL - I TOO CAN DREAM! UNLESS I FORGET, LIKE THIS WEEK - I BUY 2 TICKETS EACH WEEK - TUES. & FRI. -
BUT - THERE ARE 4-5 ‘LESS FORTUNATES’ I WOULD HELP 1ST - BEFORE TREATING MYSELF - AND THEN, LOOK OUT WORLD - HERE I COME!

You know what is worse than being born into money??? Being adopted into it... Yet all the money in the world does not make us rich. Giving and sharing and seeing smiles make one rich beyond any means....

Be always safe,

YES KAREN - ALL YOU SAID IS TRUE - THE IRONY IS THAT THE ‘RICH’ DON’T KNOW THIS!

CAUSING ‘OTHERS’ TO SMILE IS TRULY A SPECIAL REWARD ...

MOST OF ‘THEM’ JUST DON’T ‘GET IT!’

RE: KARLA’s - This is a Drill ... -

KARLA -

I'm with MATLACK - Why would anyone prefer to live in "Tornado Alley"?

Just like the Mudslides, Fires, and Earthquakes in Mexifornia - and the Hurricanes in Florida and the Carolinas - EVEN IF BORN THERE - I WOULD MOVE!

Here in BAWLMER, MERLYN - seems like our Chesapeake Bay on the East - is a SHIELD, or Protector - on the West, the Allegheny Mountains do a stalwart job of cutting down on storms.

Granted - we do have HUMIDITY here - but I'll take that anyday over Mom Nature's other catastrophes ...

I'm with Georg ED-vark on this - background noises? static? white noise?

A hodge-podge of millions, billions, trillions - Zillions ---
of all of history's LOST SOULS, or SPIRITS?

Mr. Hyland,

I read your poem, "Let Freedom Ring" and I enjoyed it very much. I have a Christian website, Planting His Seeds, and I would like to ask your permission to use your poem on my site, as part of my 4th of July messages. I would list you as the author and include a link to your website ( or this site) and would send you a link to the finished page. It's a great poem, one that I would like to share with my readers. Thank you.

Rick Harris

Hi Rick Harris:

RICK - by all means - I would be honored!

RE: MY - POLITICALLY CORRECT -

6/25/2009
Karen Lynn Vidra, The Texas Tornado

Political correctness is a bunch of HOOIE!! I say call it as it is; if people don't like it, POOP on them! (Case in point: disabled versus challenged.

I am DISABLED. I am HANDICAPPED. I am NOT physically challenged!!

Call it as it IS; I am DISABLED, and I will ROAR if people call ME challenged! Maybe THEY'RE the ones who are challenged!! GRRRRR!!!!!)

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. >:(

MY DEAR KAREN LYNN -

I hear you! Some people are truly Physically Challenged - like the guy who is 4 foot nothing - weighs 450 pounds - and wants to play Center for The Boston Celtics, or The Harlem Globe-Trotters ... Oh - and he happens to be WHITE too! 'They' Can't Jump!"

Others are Mentally Challenged - like the ANT with HIGH HOPES - we all know that "an ant can't move a rubber-tree plant!"

Another interesting side-note - don't know about other states, but over here in MERLYN - for many years License Plates on cars had the Wheelchair Icon on the left, and 2 letters on the right side - DV - which stood for Disabled Vehicle - DUH!

Recently, some 'rocket scientist' must have shown them their errant ways - now, new plates are designated as - DD - not to be confused with Drunk Driver, but Disabled Driver ...

Occasionally now I do notice a few - DP - plates - for Diabled Person -
NOT - Deadly to Pedestrians!

Aren't you just glad that yew n' me are PURR-FECT?

SMOOCH ... EL GATO ...

RE: My - STUFF -

From my Wordpedia: Stuff = what you find in Thanksgiving's turkey.
With so much MEA CULPA you should had been burned at the stake long ago, I would have come with the long matches and a little gasoline just in case.

EDvard

PS. are you sure that you have some "stuff" inside that wooden head of yours?

Dear Aardvark ED - as always, yew are too kind! Actually, in a prior life I may have been Joan D’Arc - or maybe even a Salem Witch - I dunno!

However, ewe err in saying my head is WOODEN -
For in TRUTH, it is mostly full of PUDDIN’ !
So - to ‘get my goat’ you jus’ COULDN’ -
Cause I’m so nice n’ GOODEN!

Tom,

here is the finished page for "Let Freedom Ring". I hope you like the graphic set and music I chose for this very moving poem. Thank you again for allowing me the use of your poem.

Dear Rick:

WOW! Well Done! The color contrast with gold fonts on a black background is quite pleasing.

As I read my own poem, I was almost taken back in time. Although I feel proud to be so acknowledged, in the shadow of His Seeds, it is a humbling experience.

Why? Any possible talent I may have - came from HIM!

For some odd reason, my Apple does not play the music - could you tell me what song is playing?

Thank you again for this tremendous honor.

May God Bless you and yours on this INDEPENDENCE DAY Celebration.

Tom.

RE: Lori L. Lynn’s - The Home -

LORI - GAL - YOU NAILED IT! What surprises me, is your YOUTH - and to so thoroughly UNDERSTAND this National Dilemma!

I can only echo the sentiments expressed by all the reviews posted before me, some of which are quite eloquent.

My own Mother withered away in a home, with Alzheimer's. My heart aches as I remember her begging me, while she still knew my name - "Tommy, take me home - I'll be GOOD!"

Both of my older sisters had this dreaded disease also. Adele was fortunate enough to die in her own home, because her eldest daughter stayed there with her. My sister Rose, whom I lived with for three years suffered with it. When her five children placed her in a "Home" I knew it was her Death Sentence.

Since I 'retired' three years ago, I work part-time delivering prescriptions - Elders in their own homes struggling to pay exorbitant Deductibles and Co-pays they can not afford - Every 'home' I go to three times a week, 12 months a year, 36 months and counting -

A SEA OF VACANT EYES - Over-medicated, to keep them docile, and less 'troublesome' - some little old ladies cuddling and cradling Baby Dolls (the MOTHER INSTINCT never leaves them) - some carrying their empty purses, perennially waiting to 'get out.' Others constantly waiting near the front door, secured by powerful Electro-Magnetic locks, constantly trying to ESCAPE!

And now - most ‘Homes’ have posted signs at the entrance - “NO PETS ALLOWED!” A final removal of a Pleasure they used to enjoy!

AMERICA - HANG YOUR HEAD IN SHAME!

EUTHANASIA - DEATH WITH DIGNITY - IS A FAR BETTER 'SENTENCE' !!!

Peace - Tom.

==================================================

RE: My - Patriotic Poems -

7/1/2009
Mr. Ed

MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA -

IN SPITE OF ITS
POLITICIANS !!!

Amen to that, my friend; and sadly, in spite of its citizens. I sadly remarked to my wife, as we walked all about on this year's Flag Day, that very few of our fellow Americans even seemed to remember it - we saw very few flags flying on Flag Day.

PEEWEE - ANOTHER AMEN!

"Motherhood - Apple Pie - and - Chevrolet"

all three are slowly fading away into the sunset ...

Peace - TK.
