And this happened on Friday. I woke up. And after grooming myself, I enjoyed breakfast consisting of dry cereal without milk, toast, orange juice and coffee. And after watching Good Morning America, I settled down to surf the Internet for a while. I'm going to need to enjoy lunch eventually. Not right now. There's a few more websites to visit first. Perhaps I'll go for a walk to enjoy the glories of nature. It's a calm Summer day. Is it safe to call it Summer? It feels like Summer. It might as well be Summer. And if it isn't officially Summer, then I'll call it Summer anyway. And that's the story of my day---So far.

What is the biggest turn off for you when you're dating someone?
I'm having so much difficulty in finding true love, that I don't have much nitpicking requirements anymore. I can't afford to have much nitpicking requirements when it's so hard to find true love. The only requirement I have when it comes to dating a woman is that she has to be enthusiastic about falling in love. I don't want a woman to feel as if she's trapped in a loveless relationship. Feeling as if you're trapped in a loveless relationship isn't the purpose to falling in love. Feeling as if you're trapped in a loveless relationship is what's needed to fall out of love instead. I'd feel better if the woman I'm dating has the same enthusiasm about falling in love that I have. Only then will true love bloom.

Waiting for war to arrive as if it's a positive thing to anticipate is not a positive state of mind to be in. It's far better to live in an environment which is at peace. Wrecking ruins and antiques of civilizations that doesn't agree with you populated by people who have long since died and buried is not a good state of mind to be in. Toleration of people different from you is always an ideal philosophy. If there's a way to walk away from a conflict, then such a task needs to be done. If there's a way to use verbal negotiation to avoid a conflict, then such a task needs to be done. Violence and bigotry is done out of fear. Fear isn't a natural emotion we're born with and needs to be avoided. We need to wage peace more often. We need to wage war less often. Only then will we be closer towards utopia.

And so continues the adventures of an unmarried forty-seven year old virgin. Today has been an exhausting day. Today has also been a successful day. And with the sun set beyond the horizon and night replacing day, tomorrow will soon become today. I'm tired and yearn for sleep. And I'll have a pleasant sleep with pleasant dreams and a knowledge filled with optimism that tomorrow will be just as successful and pleasant as today. It has been a good day in the suburbs. It's been a quiet day in the suburbs. It will be fun to find out what tomorrow will bring for us all. There is no need to seek out trouble when life is so happy and pleasant. Keeping life happy and pleasant is always a preferred way to go through life.

It was a war between the United States of America and the Confederate States of America. The United States of America Civil War lasted for four years, three weeks and six days between April 12, 1861 to May 9, 1865. Three years after the end of the United States of America Civil War, Decoration Day was started on 1868. There were claims that Decoration Day was actually started in Warrenton, Virginia on June 3, 1861 and by African-Americans while the Civil War was being fought in Charleston, South Carolina on May 1, 1865. However, Decoration Day became an official United States of America holiday to honor those who died in the United States of America Civil War on May 5, 1868 after almost eight years of unofficial observations. Though Decoration Day was referred to as Memorial Day in 1882, Decoration Day wasn't officially renamed Memorial Day until Federal Law mandated the name change in 1967. Memorial Day wasn't celebrated on Monday until the passing of the Uniform Monday Holiday Act on June 28, 1968. And though those who died fighting the United States of America Civil War have passed away decades ago, Memorial Day is still a day to pay respect to those who have died in the service of the country the United States of America. Their sacrifice in fighting against the enemies of the United States of America hasn't been made in vain.

And as evening falls across the land, I glance at the clock. The clock informs me that Memorial Day is only a few hours away from now. And as the seconds continue to fly on by, I look back at today's events. Today has come and gone and will soon be recorded in my mind as a memory to look back at in the coming years. And of course, there's a need for today's events to lead to positive memories that I will want to remember for years to come. And being reassured that I never done anything to regret insures that memories of today will be of a positive nature. So bring on tomorrow. Bring on Memorial Day. And on the fifth month of the year 2015, I'm truly ready for anything with both enthusiasm and gusto.

So funding the government by taxing the Wealthy keeps getting blocked by the Republicans. Funding the government by taxing the Middle Class and the Poor keeps getting blocked by the Democrats. So how do you fund the government without taxing. Well, you start by raising fees to enter this program or that program. You also start expanding the lottery. Oh yeah, legalize gambling. Not only legalize gambling, but put gambling parlors in struggling poverty afflicted neighborhoods. So all these impoverished people are flocking to gambling casinos pouring in cash they can't afford to spend on failed dreams of getting rich quick. Then tax gambling casinos heavily. Congratulations. You found a way to tax the poor heavily without taxing the poor heavily through the use of lottery tickets and gambling casinos. Of course, the poor can always avoid lottery tickets and gambling casinos, but what's the fun in that?

It's been long anticipated since the start of May 2015. And after huge waves of publicity, it finally got released on May 17, 2015. And the world shattering consequences will be felt for decades to come. The year 2015 was considered to be sacred for this reason alone. The year 2015 was created only for this reason alone. It's true. It can't be denied any longer. We shall all jump and down with enthusiasm when Taylor Swift released the music video to her song Bad Blood from her rock album 1989 on May 17, 2015 at the start of the Billboard Music Awards. And the way we look at rock and roll will never be the same again. And the world is so much better because of it.

It's happening. It's no longer a hypothetical possibility, but a genuine reality. The long anticipated construction of the extension of both Tallman Street and Harbinger Drive which intersect in the grassy field behind the house next to the Three Warehouses is finally becoming a reality. There has been a long procession of cement mixers coming and going to pave road extensions right now even as I'm typing this out. And the grassy field will gradually vanish even more if rumors of suburban house constructions follow the completion of the extension of both Tallman Street and Harbinger Drive becomes a reality right now even as I'm typing this. Soon children won't be able to play in the grassy field behind the house next to the Three Warehouses. Yes, it's true. It's the end of an era.

If there were no rules in life, and you could be as outrageous as you wanted to be, what would you do?
If there were no rules in life, I'd be hiding and running for cover. Countries that have no rules are countries that are ruled by terrorism factions, ruled by dictators, ruled by dictators working for terrorism factions, crippled in debt, crippled by famine, lacking employment opportunities and have a low survival rate for the average citizen. Countries that have no rules are often invaded and their natural resources exploited by countries more powerful then they are. Freedom from American exploitation of natural resources only means having their natural resources exploited by Russia instead. I'm not trying to be rude when I say this, but I'd rather live in a country where there are rules in life. Rules are established in life to make sure that we live in a society where safety and prosperity is made possible.
