" The proud make every man their adversary by pitting their intellects, opinions, works, wealth, talents, or any other worldly measuring device against others. "

--LDS President Ezra Taft Benson, Saturday Morning Session, 1 April 1989

An interesting reflection by President Benson on the topic of "Beware of Pride"... one of the seven deadly sins: gluttony, lust, avarice, sloth, anger, envy and pride.

Da Boards, poetry, fed the horses, study, BLOG, helped Gail with some yard work. Mowed the lawn until we ran out of gas... which is just as well since we had to jury-rig the "dead-man lever" to get the bloody mower to start.

Almost forgot... packet for genealogy last Wednesday from the LDS ! More info to continue family history search !! Cool !!! Baptized ( immersed twice ! ) and confirmed and...

ALS ( Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis ) Accessibility links : Rev. Douglas Kibbe's ALS site and from ALS Digest ALS material ( dated )... but interesting. ALS Googled and ALS News Googled. I hope to glean some info for my Accessibility Links help page.

One of my transplanted plum trees is bejeweled with blossoms. Planted from a sucker about (3)? years ago and growing strong.

" Nescient "... cool word, I wonder what it means ?

My entries... " Poetry in Motion" daily contest:


                   Nescient offspring...

                   children of the moment

                   thinking but of themselves

                   complacency obviates

                   His great love

                   A delicious muddle...

                   ... love

                   Lessons mastered

                   found through desire

                   Exploring joy


                   of mind and body

                   :Bobby Nichols 3-8-2004

              Storm at Sea

        CRASH... the breakers spray

        Surf roils from onset nigh

        Heaven and shore tried

" Affront  "... made the deadline of 9:00 p.m. PST by less than (1) minute !!! Started a wee bit late in the day. Nescient=ignorant, obviates=prevents, complacency=smugness ( I had to look all (3) up !!! [ nescient me !!! ] )

" Enraptured  "... A light view of the mystery of mature love.

" Storm at Sea  "... a Haiku: Inspirational photo showing jutting rocks in the surf where the breakers cavort - fronting an unsullied beach... with streamers of light as from Heaven passing through the breaks in the dark clouds offshore. Roils: two syllabibbles or one ? Dictionary says (2)... roils... roy-ils... royls... roi-'ls... ?

Dovidjenja !!!
