Dove in our tree "self" on the gas pump

 The word "self" on the gas pump 
makes me wonder: 
Where in the world does a gas station have full service gas pumping?  It used to be standard but it hasn't been that way since the 1990's.

This large branch fell unprovoked yesterday

I'm searching for the tree name.  I see them growing mostly in abandoned places.  There is an old cistern nearby.  It is not uncommon to see people sitting in this area drinking, smoking, and doing whatever.  Over the years I've noticed it draws people to gather here.  It's a semi-hidden place in a high traffic area, and near the Hwy.  I've been told there was a home but it burned down.  The story of this place reminded me of the beginning of a horror movie, where a tortured childhood created a demented adult.  Someone burned down the house to break the cycle of evil.  It is strange I've noticed that fire is used by people that are long time residents in this valley.  To break curses or "gettin' witched".  Not sure where this originated but it is a very common theme.


This truck has been sitting here over 24 hours

Pregnant Woman Dies After Horrifying Medical Mixup

Mr. Al-Abed removed what he clearly believed to be the appendix. He thought he found it, removed it,

This is not a mix-up this is murder.  They will probably find out he just showed up at the hospital one day pretending to be a doctor, and has been there ever since, and no one knows who he really is.

Hemet never ceases to amaze me

Trying to recapture the past.   Hemet never ceases to amaze me.  There is no place quite like Hemet.  Some cities are step back in time a reminder of our sturdy rugged past.  Other cities are a step into the future with the hope, and promise of technology.   Hemet is a city of today, the here and now.  The awkward clumsy newness of those first adventurous steps.  This town never quite gets it right.  The would've, should've, could've, of introspection.  It is a reminder of each step of everyday, the struggle.  No matter how hard anyone tries you can never get ahead or behind in Hemet.  Hemet is every second of everyday for the rest of your life.

Is the Catholic Church picking up the cross of Christ and carrying it

Does this mean the Catholic Church will stop being a political body, or is this just propaganda?

real world, real time...real s-s-s-l-l-l-o-o-o-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-(

A few days ago I was chatting with a salesman about the future of the cell phone industry.  He was trying to explain how the trend in retail is focusing solely on the cell phone market.  I didn't understand most of what he was talking about, it sounded mostly like speculation.  It was like he had been to several motivational speaking presentations over the past several weeks and hadn't come off that veritable high yet.

To my surprise yesterday I saw a group of people peddling cell phones out of the trunk of a car in a shopping center parking lot.  I'm wondering if retailers plan to hire operators to handle the onslaught of cell phone users that are evidently going to want immediate access to goods and services.  I would expect a person to be able to text message a retailer who will have a grocery order filled and waiting for the customer to arrive at the dock, or any type of consumable items.  No longer will anyone have to stand in line, or look for a sales person to assist them.  The customer can have a time stamped demand, and voila` the products appear like magic.  Hassle free, no more driving here or there.  Cities can become giant warehouses that provide all the necessary consumables.  No more giant parking lots, just drive through lanes at docks.  Eventually the automobile would be replaced by delivery services that bring the goods to individual housing communities.
Who really knows what the next trend in retail is going to be.  It will take a quantum leap to change the way retail marketing is structured.  The way cities are zoned.  The amount of money that is being poured into the freeways in this area it doesn't look like there will be an end to automobiles in the near future.
The only thing that makes business sense about trying to get in on the cell phone market is the free access to consumer information that is acquired from cell phone usage.  I know that being able to drive to a store and make a purchase and pick up the item same day is far better than going online making a purchase and having to wait 10+ days to have it delivered .  Currently I have two items available ONLY online.  The money has been taken from my account and now that project has come to a complete stand still has I wait and wait and wait for the delivery to arrive.
