Remember Miracle on Ice?

REMEMBER Miracle on Ice

by ICWare,  05/21/16

Am watching the end of Miracle on Ice. We’re about to kick the Soviets’ ass at Lake Placid Olympics Hockey game.

The coach was driven. A no nonsense guy and drove his players on detail and worked them until they didn’t think they had anymore to give. But that’s what good coaches at this level of the game dish. Not to mention when a hockey player is on the ice, they’re a different kind of beast. They can take, and they need, what a good coach yells out. America needed a boost during this time and these young, some teenagers and some college students gave that day by beating professional Russian hockey players whose job was to practice hockey for years.

Excerpt from Article

“The Political Impact of the Poor Economy in the 1970s”

“The economic upheaval of the 1970s had important political consequences. The American people expressed their discontent with federal policies by turning out Carter in 1980 and electing former Hollywood actor and California governor Ronald Reagan as president.”


We won that Olympics Hockey game in 1980 against the Soviets and it was the biggest shot in the arm we Americans could have gotten. It gave us hope. We then, made the best decision to recover from our debilitating socio-economic situation. We elected Ronald Reagan as president.

We are now at another vital decision-making moment that will either continue driving America into a third-world country and communistic style rule with little freedoms. (Ex. The children’s choir was stopped from singing a patriotic song In Washington DC for no $35 permit, or IRS closing kids’ lemonade stands down or the children at school losing individual freedoms or an old man jailed for feeding homeless in Florida). Or, Shari’ah law recognized federally one day.

This will be our last opportunity for multi-generations, if we ever recover from losing the freedoms we continue to lose every day.

If you love this country, what our flag stands for, what it felt like to be free to speak, write, drive from state to state without a passport which is in the works, if you remember what it was like not being watched or listened to as if you lived in China, N Korea and so many other countries…I ask, are you a patriotic citizen or have you fallen into the sphere of drowning in meeting family needs and find it difficult to think of much else?

Now is the time for all good people to come to the aid of their country. Vote for Donald Trump. Anything else will bring more tyranny to us, our children and great grandchildren.

Call Me Jumbo Shrimp


by ICWare, 7/29/16     ____________________________________________


I’m walking, walking, things are going well. I put the pot in the oven. It’s going to taste good. I grabbed a mitt to pull it out and placed it on top of the stove while smelling that great aroma. A few seconds later getting sidetracked, I pulled a Lucille Ball by grabbing the handle with my bare hand to move that hot pot. Ouch! Triple ouch!!! I grabbed my wrist as my hand looked at me screaming in pain for me to do something. So, I too let out a loud yell and then calmly said God this has to be healed and I thank you for doing that ’cause it has to be just you and me. Focused on the one I KNOW who loves me, took care of my hand, sat on the couch praying in the spirit. After awhile I realized the pain was gone, looked down and my hand was as if nothing had happened.


I’m walking, walking, things are going well but doubt and mistrust because of human experience got in the way one day. As I walked and started to stumble falling into a frenzy pacing the floor AS IF moments away from performing before Simon Cowell… I called a good and true friend of which I have very few. After unloading my fears and seeking a response, great help I got because my thought was  of course JUMBO SHRIMP. It’s amazing to be strong and confident in one area, weak in another and knowing it’s okay. It’s called being human.

When finished dumping the shrimp on the table, I knew he understood when he said…I’m  down with JUMBALAYA.


EMASCULATED (with a little humor)

by ICWare, 6/13/16

When In elementary school we had a Native American father in full dress along with his daughter visit, but not for the reason you may think.

They didn’t come to play music. They didn’t come to speak of their culture or of basket weaving. No, not at all.

He showed his skill with a bow & arrow, and with his knife throwing. His daughter stood a good distance from him placing an apple on her head. He raiseded the arrow aiming with stealth and confidence splitting the apple down the middle. His daughter never flinched.

Then, she stood in front of a board while he threw knives coming an inch or two from her head. I stood aghast. My mouth dropped open watching her stare straight ahead. Again, she never flinched at all. It was amazing to see her bravery.

Things have changed since 1958.

You’d never see that now. Recently a young man got suspended for turning in a report on anti gun control and was required to see a psychiatrist.

The pushers who emasculate young boys before they can become adults are deplorable. Not letting their wives do it later is a travesty. :mrgreen:

The Devil’s in the Details

by ICWare

Ephesians 4:27…“Neither give place to the devil.” 

Ephesians 4:27…“Leave no [such] room or foothold for the devil [give no opportunity for him].”


~ Secular sayings ~

Give him an inch, he’ll take a mile. (His love and passion is to wreak havoc and he froths at the mouth for every opportunity.)


Hate details? Learn to love them or find a friend who is good at digging through them until every stone has been turned…whether a marriage, work project, planning a fun vacation… so when in the middle of things you’re not blindsided and you have a solution for anything else that may arise quicker and easier.

Butt…oops I mean but, see I missed a detail by one letter. What a difference a letter makes.


LASTLY, actually first, the unprofitable words people speak to your ear or probably worse are the words you speak to yourself. Those stones are to be dealt with by throwing them away before damage is done to your soul.


There’s a terrific quote “I will not let your dirty boots run through my mind.” *Author unknown*
