27 04 Friday Yes, this amazing creature is on my pool team...
follow only if ye are men of valour. For the entrance to
this cave is guarded by a monster, a creature so foul and
cruel that no man yet has fought with it and lived. Bones
of full fifty men lie strewn about its lair ... therefore
sweet knights if you may doubt your strength or courage come
no further, for death awaits you all with nasty pointy teeth."
good read I am involed with right now...
all the events of your life
are there because you have
drawn them there.
What you choose
to do with them is
up to you..."
The Celestine Prophecy is the title of a novel by James Redfield.
The novel is seen as a spiritual guide for the New Age. One devotee describes
it this way.
This book is very simply about how we get and use energy.
When we get enough energy, in the right ways, we can "raise
our vibration." With a higher vibration we are better
able to tap into our psychic and intuitive skills, and
thus are better able to discover and live our true purpose
novel, the meaning of life is revealed in an ancient Peruvian
manuscript written in Aramaic. It predicts a massive spiritual
transformation of society in the late twentieth century.
We will finally grasp the secrets of the universe, the
mysteries of existence, the meaning of life. The real meaning
and purpose of life won't be found in religion and it won't
be found in material wealth, but rather in things like
auras . The manuscript is full of insights like this and
these insights are the way to the transformation. How do
we know this? Just look at the restlessness all around
you. That's the key. The dissatisfaction and restlessness
we feel is the key. We're like caterpillars ready to metamorphosize
into butterflies, to burst forth together into the New
Age. After all, you can't seek fulfillment if you're fulfilled!
Do you think it is a coincidence that coincidences are
happening more and more frequently?
...the Manuscript says the number of people who are conscious of such coincidences
would begin to grow dramatically in the sixth decade of the twentieth century.
He said that this growth would continue until sometime near the beginning
of the following century, when we would reach a specific level of such individuals--a
level I think of as a critical mass.

Look for Suspicious Behaviors by Marty
Nemko Who works for BLUE LUE BOIL
By themselves, each of these behaviors can just be signs of stress, or even
a person's natural mannerisms. One can occur by chance, but when two or
more of these behaviors suddenly appear at a moment when lying could be
expedient. For example, when you ask a salesman how reliable that used
car is, it suggests he's lying.
Here's the top eight list of suspicious behaviors: there are more but these
are the top eight; so far.
1. A change in the voice's pitch.
2. A change in the rate of speech.
3. A sudden increase in the number of "ums" and "ahs."
4. A change in eye contact. Normally, one makes eye contact one-quarter to
one-half of the time. If suddenly, at the convenient moment to lie, he's staring
at you or looking away, beware.
5. Turning his body away from you, even if just slightly.
6. Suddenly being able to see the white on the top and bottom of a person's
eyes, not just the sides.
7. A hand reaching, even if momentarily, to cover part of the face, especially
8. Nervous movement of feet or legs.
Of course, in order to notice a change, you need a baseline. So you must first
watch the person when talking about innocuous issues.
A Mixed Signal
Also look for mixed signals. When someone's telling the truth, her words, her
face and her body language are all congruent. For example, if a person is honestly
saying that she likes you, her face is usually relaxed, offering a gentle smile
and warm eyes. Her body is calm and open. But when she's lying, something is
usually inconsistent. In the most obvious case, she may be saying she likes
you, but she's not smiling. She may even have a clenched fist. Better liars
can muster a smile, but it doesn't look natural. Even better liars can put
on a convincing smile, but their eyes aren't smiling. Still better liars can
control their entire face, but their bodies seem closed or cold. Look for mismatches
between words and body language.
When you've gotten a signal -- a change in body language or a mixed signal
that the person may be lying -- ask for more information about the same
topic. Are those same lying signs apparent? That can confirm your suspicion.
Of course, there's no foolproof way to detect lying. Some people are terrific
at covering themselves up, especially if they are naturally emotionally
flat or have practiced their lying skills over many years -- certain political
leaders come to mind. But if you look for behavior changes and mixed signals
at lying-expedient moments, you will improve your BS detector.

Attention Deficit Disorder Overview (ADHD/ADD)
to many people's belief, attention deficit disorder or ADHD/ADD
is not the results
of "bad parenting" or
that you or your child simply has problems controlling attitude,
and people that would suggest such a notion are downright wrong!
Attention Deficit (and its many forms: ADD/ADHD/LD) is a dysfunction
of the Central Nervous System (CNS), most specifically the Reticular
Activating System, which results in difficulties of maintaining
attention and concentration, learning and memory, as well as
involving an inability to process and sort out incoming information
or stimulus from both an individual's inner (subjective) and
outer (objective) worlds.
In most cases ADHD or ADD is seen in children in adolescence
and earlier. In most cases it is out grown, maybe.
are some signs to look for:
Hyperactivity, fidgeting, squirming in seat, or moving constantly,
wandering, may leave the seat in the classroom when expected
to stay, has trouble participating in "quiet" activities
such as reading, talks excessively or is impulsive (may blurt
out answers before questions have been completed), has difficulty
awaiting turn, interrupts others, has problems sleeping, is
not able to delay gratification, can be social outcasts or
(possible inability to play in groups, but may perform in one-on-one
situation), has apparent disregard for own safety, behavior
not usually modified by reward or punishment, may have other
learning disabilities, and failure to meet normal intellectual
give the Rant but it’s still bugging me a
From level two too seven yet everybody is even on the ego part
of the team. I am on a Tuesday team that is way in first place
and there is
other. I hope this time it will work for us on Monday this
coming season? I bug’s me that the team’s I put
together in the past always has somebody or some bodies that
want to play ball with the whole team, only half or maybe most
wont work if it is not all. I am not going to be fighting with
anybody on my team every Monday this coming season just for
the sake of the entertainment for the rest
of the team
or certain individuals of the team; I don’t need to put
up with that I have spent three years already trying to put together
a killer team only to come up short in the end because of the
same shit character conflicts, no shows, alcoholics, arrogant,
immaturity and so forth you have lots of the most unlikely teams
going to the winners circle not because they have player like
Mike and Martine, Douglas and George. Ya got regular people going;
why? Because of something I have not done yet. I want to be with
company I enjoy and that same company enjoying me as company,
I really don’t care for that “ I don’t care
if he’s around or I don’t care if she’s around” attitude
ether. it is still negative energy even when you surpress it
with ' we dont have to like each other to work well together"
thing. If you don’t
like me, stay the hell away from me. And if I don’t like
you I am going to keep away from you. But you’re not going
to come into my home and look at me with contempt or dislike;
even want that “I
am pretending you’re not around” attitude. Just keep
away if you feel I am not the company you prefer. I am already
going to have my hands full with George I don’t need two,
three, four or more Georges on my team. Sorry my regular readers,
that is just the way I had to do it. Do you know anybody who
wants to be on my team with out a problem with me.
What is a thug?
An aggressive and violent young criminal.
Some people are entertained by violence and stupid behavior.
Some people think aggressiveness is amusing and funny. Some
people like this sort human behavior. Steeling from stores,
lying, cheating, and manipulating people. Stabbing your friends
in the back. Thug.
time is over
Taking a Break.
Web definition: a pause from doing something (as work); "we
took a 10-minute break"; "he took time out to recuperate." A
time interval during which there is a temporary cessation of something.
August 17 2004 Tuesday afternoon
I just been informed the reason why there was a little attitude toward
me from certain others who are no longer a matter was because of
the coin toss, and the fact that I told the opposing team they put
up first. I was not going to do it but as I was walking out to smoke
a stogie some one yelled out form my team “William the coin
toss!” I did not look who it was that yelled out for me to
do it but I did it I wasn’t going to do it. But I was asked
to do it…that’s when the attitude began. This is a perfect
example of miss communication. Oh well whata-ya-gona-do?
That’s Ok As far as I am concerned the senior players on the
team have say so no matter what anyway xxxxx Douglas and William
no particular order. But I will not tolerate disrespect or insubordination
from anyone on my team toward any of my senior and new players including
myself. Sorry we are all grown ups here.
August 17 2004 Tuesday night fart
I farted when I was talking to xxxxx on the phone today and she heard
it, wow. I farted during my match today and somebody heard it, they
said, “William, did you just fart?”
August 18 2004 WED Afternoon
I made xxxxx captain of the team for the summer season and she
made Rachel co captain. Huh? Any way, Rachel toward the end of the
season started to give me attitude and disrespect, why? I don’t
know. I put Rachel on my team even when her recent record was not
up to par. I still believed in her even after she left her Tuesday
team under the circumstances she was in. I went to xxxxx and asked
why is the co captain giving me attitude? Can you do something about
this? I mean what can I do she is the co captain I am just a player
I don’t seem to have any leverage for changing anything on
the team for the season, if she wants to give me lip and attitude
then she can. xxxxxtories reply was, “it is between you and her
William deal with it.” I told xxxxx the circumstances and
she still said, “Deal with it.” So I did. Bye co captain.
xxxxx could have easily just said to her co captain “hey
co captain William is a season player here” he put the team
together and made me captain lets show him a little respect, just
a little. Being I made xxxxx captain and she did say plenty of
times “I don’t want to be Captain” you would think
she would at least make some effort to find out what the problem
was. But noooooo she did not want to do that that would be the smart
thing to do, the nice thing to do, the kind of thing a friend would
do for a friend, the kind of grown up thing to do. The Captain thing
to do, her solution was “deal with it William” if Rachel
does not want to give you some respect then deal with it. So I did.
What else was I suppose to do. Sit back and watch my team go down
the drain by some selfish Captain who is entertained with pettiness.
well the team goes on
I think whats her face is Captain of the wrong kind of team. That’s
my fault. When one desires to become a captain of a APA pool team,
one has goals to excel forward for the big win, in order to do that,
you must put a team together and make sure it is the right chemistry.
Everybody has rolls and positions on the ship. On my ship, every
body must get along or we just wont have smooth sailings. Issues
come up and they need to be dealt with. So it is the Captains job
to make sure that problems or issues among or around the crew it
dealt with properly and appropriately. I want everybody to get along.
If I see two member of my crew not getting along, it is the Captain’s
job to see to it they do get along as quick and as smooth as possible
or the rest of the team will pay for it when there is a critical
storm. I just called Rachel and told her she is not on my team next
season so find another team to join. I hated to do that. But xxxxx
left me no choice, xxxxx was giving Rachel this impression that
I was not the important to her, that we are not that close, just
a part time friends, a friend she can do without. Why the hell would
I give my captainship to some one I could not really trust? Because
I thought that she would be in my corner when problems arose around
or about the team. Oops, a problem was rising and the only person
there to fix it was I. Rachel was giving me attitude and disrespect.
How can you give the one person who gave you power lip and attitude?
xxxxx told me to deal with it. xxxxx said she does not want
co captain the team next season, Infact xxxxx told me plenty of
times she did not want to ever to be captain at all, this whole thing
might have been my fault. I just needed a break and I ended breaking
a piece of my team. I should have given my captain status for the
summer to someone I can trust, not someone who has a changeable attitude
with me from day to day. I should of pick a friend. Maybe Rachel
can help me co captain my team next season, I think I might give
her a call and ask and see if she is interested in the job.
