“Physical strength can never permanently withstand the impact of spiritual force.”

Quotes are not just to read for fun and take for granted. They have the power to inspire, to change our mindsets on a multitude of things, big and small.

Even the smallest quote can have a big impact on our lives. In the end it is your own choice what kind of life you want to live. So take some time to read these quotes, to see if they inspire you. Inspire you to do something great. Like the quote I started with, by Franklin D. Roosevelt.

“Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

“Happiness and confidence are the prettiest things you can wear” ― Taylor Swift

“Don’t let someone else’s opinion of you become your reality.” –…

Yay’s & Nay’s – Haircare Products 2014


Really appreciate the “reviews” of dry shampoos. Gonna check out cheapie Dove and then probably buy LUSH! I so love LUSH shampoo.

Most women I know are on a quest for amazing hair, which leads them to buy and try an obscene number of hair products, and that includes me. The few things I try not to change frequently are shampoo and conditioner, because I use them more frequently than any other product, and to change them would be to mess with my hair quality, which I really don’t wanna change. Although, trying lots of products eventually does some damage to your hair which is unavoidable, but at the end of the process if you find a great product which can undo the damage done by a good prospect, I think the damage is worth it.

To spare you girls the trouble of trying too many hair products, I’m listing my favourites and un-favourites (pretty sure that’s not a word, but you get…

Power Plant Men Take the Corporate Mainframe Computer Home


A find… I especially like the “Old Man” application mentioned late in this post. Enjoy.

When the Coal-fired Power Plant in North Central Oklahoma downsized from 218 employees to 124 employees in 1994, everyone was scrambling to figure out how we were going to complete all the work that needed to be done to keep the plant running.  We had become cross-functional teams which seemed to help right away, but we needed to know what jobs were the higher priority jobs, because it became obvious, at least for the short run, that we were not keeping up with the workload.

That was where the “Planners” came in.  In other industries, we may call these guys, “Project Managers”.  They planned the work, and gave us the Maintenance Orders when it was time to work on them.  At first, this was a daunting task for the four planners at our plant.  The planners were Mike Vogle, Glenn Rowland, Ben Davis and Tony Mena.

This was a new…

Transcending Utility In Downtown T or C (#376)


Always something fun at Tin Can Traveler — unique fencing. Check it out.

When does something go beyond its function as a useful item to become something more?  An expression of artistic freedom ? Imaginative? Visionary? Fun?

Displayed for you here are a few of the utilitarian forms of fencing I found skirting the yards of some homes here in Truth or Consequences (T or C), New Mexico.  Fences that, perhaps, go beyond form and function to be…..something else….something imaginative, something expressive, something more.

Six Months Of Spew!


And what is the verbal slew? Check it out.

Ace Ventura Celebration

It all started six months ago with a throwaway comment made by my brother. Shortly afterward I started spewing and The Verbal Spew Review was born. I had no clear idea of what I wanted this blog to be and no clue what I was going to do with it but here it is six months later, my brain’s little baby, doing its thing. I still don’t know exactly what that thing is precisely, but it’s doing it and I like it.

Six months isn’t a long time in the grand scheme of things. I follow blogs that have been established for years, and in comparison to those behemoths The Spew is merely a drop in the ocean of blogdom. Knowing, however, that I have the attention span of a gnat, I am delighted to have made it this far. This is no doubt largely thanks to you, the readers…
