I'm a 60 year old guy who lives in Vista California with my wife. I spent the 30 years before moving to Cali in Iowa, Wisconsin and North Dakota. And I have 2 grown children, a son and a daughter who live in Virginia and Iowa and a 22 year old step-daughter lives with us here in Vista. I'm a proud grandpa with 2 grandaughters living in Virginia. I like to write about a whole variety of things from my kids to cooking to politics to the car industry to my status as a "Cheap Bastid" and "Old Fart" and just random thoughts. And I really love writing about cooking really good, homecooked comfort food cheap. That's why they call me the Cheap Bastid. By the way--all the stuff I write is my stuff and you can't use it without my official OkeyDokey

"Love Thy Neighbor"--a Sunday Quickie

Rate: 9 Flag

Just thought I'd throw this into the feed today before I check around to see if I can get the ESPNU streaming of the University of North Dakota vs University of Minnesota hockey game today to see who makes the "Frozen Four" next week.  Here it is:

 Love Thy Neighbor

Kind of says it all, doesn't it?

Very cool.

This should go on the back of the OS Official Hoodie, the one with the "Be Kind" motto on the front still to be designed by someone who knows how to do that kind of thing. I'm just throwing around a few ideas...
VCorso--I like that idea. Thanks.
I loved this. Im going to post it on my Facebook. We all need to read that over and over again. Especially those right wingers.
Well, I don't know — how will we know who we are if we don't know whom to hate?
Zanelle--thanks, I'll be putting it up on Facebook too

Brunhilde--the haters can just change that one word at the top--run an "x" through it and insert a red "Hate". Then the one concept can do double duty I guess. Scary thought.
Great shirt... where can I find one?
Yup and hope people read and understand it.
Linda--What!!??? Read??? Understand??? That's expecting a lot anymore isn't it?
Wow. Really makes you think.
Yes very cool and needing to be said!
Right on! Too many people think "neighbor" means anybody who looks/acts like me.
Kind of does say it all. I applaud you for your taste in hockey.
Interestingly when Jesus did the whole "love your neighbor" bit, somebody asked Him who/what is a neighbor.
And Jesus said, any stranger who is willing to help you in a spot of bother is a neighbor.

I think that's probably something we can adopt, irrespective of how you feel about Christianity (though I'm not really sure how that would work practically- do you have to wait till somebody does you a good turn?)
