Webster?

Yes, Webster.  Noah Webster is his name.  When you think about all the prominent people and famous names that impacted the formation of the United States in the 17th and 18th centuries, I guess it’s easy for Noah Webster to get lost in the shuffle.

Before the invention of spell check, we picked up the good old fashioned dictionary for help spelling words, but even then, didn’t you just always think the name of the dictionary was Webster’s?

Not only was Noah Webster the author of “Webster’s,” America’s first dictionary, he was also an advocate for universal free education as way to aid national unity at a time when the emergence of the modern school system was still in its infancy stage.

Very Interesting!

Apartment/Room Hunting

How’s everybody doing?  Today is Sunday, January 12th, and it is beautiful outside.  Sixty-one degrees and sunny! Not bad for the middle of the winter.  Not bad at all.

Tomorrow night I start class at Muhlenberg College, and I’m looking for a small apartment or room to rent that’s close to Chew Street.  If you can help, or know someone who has a place to rent, please write in.

I posted an ad on Craigslist, and it was short and to the point.  I explained that I was starting school soon, and that I was looking for something near the college and Chew Street. The next thing I know I get people replying to me telling me they’re looking for an apartment.  People make me laugh, man they really do.




 

Alright everyone, enjoy your Monday, and if you hear or know something let me know.

American Preservation

We are being called out.

Well, we’re not exactly being called out.  Lets just say we were sleeping, and then all of a sudden, someone broke into our house and put some things in there that shouldn’t exist.

After waking up and taking a look around, the responsibility falls on us, “We The People” to remove it all.

I must admit, I am a little concerned.  I listen to a lot of news, both mainstream and independent, I watch a lot of videos, and I do read a lot.

America is our Country to lose, despite what I hear.

What is it that I hear?  Well, I hear the country is already lost.  Now, I don’t buy into propaganda, and I take a completely neutral stance on every issue until the truth surfaces, and this is really easy to do because we have a Constitution (Bill of Rights).

When you hear people saying the Country is lost, or we lost our Country, don’t believe it.  What’s really important here is that we’re preserving and exercising our rights as citizens in this country, and if we do that, the Country will never fall.

It’s really simple.  The most important thing to know is that before we became the United States of America, we were 13 Colonies.  After some negotiations, land purchases, and a little strong arming, we went coast to coast, consolidated, and created a central federal government.

That Federal Government gave us (the people) the Bill of Rights as a way to ensure our privacy and freedoms from an overreaching, central government.  The Constitution (Bill of Rights) is the basis and foundation this country was built on.  The colonies wanted to remain separate, private, and maintain the ability to rule and govern themselves, but obviously, there was a much bigger plan in the works, and so 13 Colonies became 52 states.  All under the watchful eye of a centralized government.

In order to preserve our Country, all we have to do is follow the constitution.  Very simple.  Whatever was put into place that’s unconstitutional must go, and then, we must not allow the Federal Government to violate the Constitution ever again.

The People of the United States of America request the removal of such agencies and laws as they are now deemed unconstitutional.

  1. Homeland Security
  2. The Patriot Act
  3. FISA Courts

Well, what are we waiting for?

After the removal of the above mentioned laws and agencies, we really need to do a better job of preventing the formation of unconstitutional agencies and recognizing those laws that if passed, will be unconstitutional.  Is physical violence necessary?  No, I don’t think it is.  All that is required is a free-well informed public that has the courage to speak up, and the persistence and will to not give up or in until its requests are met.

You’re not breaking the law, and you’re not doing anything wrong.  We have the right to speak up and call out our Government when it’s not playing by the rules.

In closing, I would like to say I feel really bad for the people whose lives have been ruined for simply speaking up and bringing attention to issues that violate our rights and privacy as citizens of this country.

This is the land of the free and the home of the brave.  Right?

New Year Magic

For the last ten, a shift has been felt,

It’s way deep beyond, past Orion’s known Belt.

From the home of the Archer, where the fire burns bright,

A shooting star arrow brings visions and light.

I shall pour out my spirit, a quote from the bible,

Mull over connections, however, this knowledge is tribal.

The arrow, yes, eventually it hit its mark, and it gave possibilities.  There are gifts I believe, that do come from the heavens.  My belief however, is beyond a belief as in believing by chance or having blind faith.  There are many things going on in this world around you, and there are so many paths, roads, and possibilities.  When this becomes apparent, you will think you’ve completely lost your mind, but the reality is, for whatever reason, your awareness is being heightened.

As you dive into the strangeness and look even stranger to the people around you, know that you’re not crazy.  As matter of fact, you haven’t lost your mind at all.

Seek and We Shall Find

They say the answers to our questions are out there, and the truth will set us free.  We must decipher between what’s right and what is wrong for us according to our own perception.

They say there is life on other planets, and we are not alone in this universe, but knowing that would be a major distraction.

I heard we discovered microbial life on Mars, but instead of furthering the investigation, more time and effort has been spent covering it up.

Handle your daily routine and mundane tasks like responsible men and women, but in your spare time, don’t be afraid to investigate.  This thing we call the “cosmos” is beautiful, mysterious, and waiting for us to have fun with it.

Taming A Wandering Mind

If you’re like me, then your mind wanders.  Topic after topic.  If you’re worried about this and fell like you’re loosing control, then listen to what I’m about to say.

My mind, I don’t know why, wanders, but I’m starting to think it has something to do with “the task of the moment,” but the advice I can give you is “don’t pay attention.”  All types of thoughts of thoughts and temptations pass though, but remember, it’s all in your head.  We shouldn’t live in our heads.

It’s not a bad thing if you have a wondering mind, but remember, we live in our physical reality.  While our mind drifts from the here and now, our bodies don’t.  Do not let random thoughts and temptations interfere with what you’re doing, or what you say to someone if they’re completely unrelated or something you normally wouldn’t or shouldn’t do.

If you, for example, just sat down to read a book, read that book.  If the thought crosses your mind to check your email, send a text message, or do something else, ignore it until you’re done reading.  Focus on what you’re doing, and see it thorough completion.

In his/her possession, the average person has a cell phone, tablet, laptop, computer, books, and magazines.  Younger people have all that stuff including video games, so the urge to bounce from one thing to the next is great.  So great in fact, it takes a mindful decision, and some effort to concentrate on one thing at a time.

When speaking and interacting with people, remember, that person doesn’t know what you’re thinking.  They do however, hear what you say.  They can see you, they can see how you react, how you stand, and what you do with your hands.  Your body language is visible.

Someone approaches you for the first time.  They want to speak with you because they want to get to know more about you, but during that conversation, the thought crosses your mind to say “fuck you,” and run away.

What do you do?

What should you do?

The answer is to stand there, and have the conversation.  Let the person get to know you, and if it’s in the cards, make a new friend.  Your mind is telling you to say, “fuck you,” and run away, but should you?

Is the person threatening you, attacking you, or disrespecting you?  No, so, you wouldn’t and shouldn’t run away, and say, “fuck you.”  Cursing at the person and running away doesn’t make sense.

It sounds funny, but a small percentage of us will curse and run away.  Why?  I can’t answer that.  I cant tell you why people do what they do, but I can help you make the right choices if that’s what you want to do.  This whole article is about fighting random thoughts that interfere with our lives while we’re working, completing a task, or speaking with someone.  The reason why this is an issue in the first place is because we’re told to listen and pay attention to our thoughts, but if our thoughts aren’t “good,” then we must dismiss them.

This leads me to my next point, “knowing the difference between right and wrong.”  If you know the difference between right and wrong, then you know which thoughts you should dismiss because acting them out would either be wrong, or not make sense in a given situation.  Remember the actions you take, and your behavior, weather physical, or verbal, must make sense.  No one can see your thoughts, and people cannot read your mind.  Having the thought to curse at someone who is trying to be your friend, is nothing more than a passing thought so long as you don’t act on it.

How did we get here?  I don’t know.  I think the mind should be silent, but most people do have a busy mind.  I have a busy mind, but it wasn’t always that way.  There was a time when I was fully, 100% in the moment.  Just living-acting and reacting.  It would be extremely nice to find a way back to that point.  It was a time when your mind wasn’t a beacon for the thoughts and emotions of others.

It was a time when your mind was your own, no distractions, no interference, and no delays.  100% fully in the moment.

Seasons Greetings

Hello Everyone!

Today is December 23rd, and Christmas will be in two days.  I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, and a happy New Year.

If you don’t celebrate Christmas that’s quite alright.  I hope everyone has a very enjoyable Holiday Season.

You won’t see any content published from https://noozbuffet.com for the next couple of weeks because we take off the last week of December and the first week of January.

2019 has been a fabulous year for us as we’re getting close to that 75,000 word count mark, and that means a lot to us because it shows we’re consistently putting out content for the world to read.  I would like to personally thank all of our new followers for liking us and reading our content.

Welcome aboard!

We have some new exciting things we’re working on for 2020 so check back in as often as you like.


Now is definitely the time to start thinking about those New Year’s Resolutions, and what you would like to accomplish during the year ahead.  We’re big on finding that perfect balance in life, and if you followed along with us throughout 2019 than you know we’ve all come a long way.

We got back to work, and joined the gym after a 15 year lazy haze.  For us, 2019 was about laying the foundation.  We did, and now we’re keeping it going.  2020 will be all about socializing and rediscovering our night lives.

Don’t forget.  Whatever you start in 2020 will have magic behind it.  2020 is not just another year, it’s the beginning of a brand new decade.  They say 40 is the new 20, well, I’ll be turning 40 next year so we gone find out!  😛


Alright ya’ll, before I end this, I would like to leave you with these words…

You can do whatever you want.  You are the boss of you.  If there’s something you want, or something you would like to do, go and do it.  Don’t hold back.

Happy Holidays

💕🔥🎄🎆🎇

NCAA College Football; Ranking the Flawless

So, this year, according to CBS Sports College Football rankings, it is LSU at number one, followed by Ohio State, and then Clemson.  All three are 13-0.

When it comes to Table Seven’s College Football ranking system, there are no arguments there because as you know, we rank according to record.  13-0 is 13-0, but I have to be honest.

My curious mind just pulled me back.  For the hell of it, I just wanted to “crunch the numbers” to see if CBS really got it right.  Without using our system, we had Ohio State at number one, followed by LSU, and then Clemson, but let’s see what the math has to say about that.

Table Seven’s College Football Rankings

  1. OHIO STATE- 13-0 (29)
  2. LSU- 13-0 (28)
  3. CLEMSON- 13-0 (24)

 

I used to laugh about Clemson winning every week and sliding down in National rank, but after taking some things into consideration, I can see why that happened.  In my opinion, the Big 10 was the strongest conference in college football this year, and it kind of sucks that Ohio State ended up with a number two seed, but regardless of what we do on paper the games must be played, and inevitably, the best team will win the National Championship when all is said and done.

I said earlier this season, LSU might be the only team capable of beating the Buckeyes this season.  Ohio State is that good.  I think we’ll see a final game played between OSU and LSU, and it will be one hell of a game.

NCAA College Football Wrap-Up

cropped-america-american-ball-4198-1

What is going on in the wild world of college football right now?

There will be one game played during Week 16, and that’s Army versus Navy.  Kickoff is scheduled for 3 o’clock, Saturday, December 14th, at Lincoln Financial Field.

Then, is Bowl Championship Season!

Week 15 was Conference Championship Weekend, and listed below is the CBS Sports College Football Rankings (top seven teams).

  1. LSU 13-0
  2. OSU 13-0
  3. Clemson 13-0
  4. Oklahoma 12-1
  5. Georgia 11-2
  6. Oregon 11-2
  7. Baylor 11-2

Why seven?  Because here at https://noozbuffet.com, we pick for you, our very own special top seven teams.  We’ll piggy back a little bit off the CBS rankings up to a point, and then we’ll use our own formula to see who belongs and who doesn’t.

Our first criteria is the overall record, so we are in agreement with CBS’s top 4 regardless of any point or ranking system, with the exception of LSU and Ohio State.  I don’t think the Buckeyes should’ve slide a place because of their “struggle” with Wisconsin.  A win is a win.  That’s what I think anyway.

https://noozbuffet.com Top 4

  1. Ohio State 13-0
  2. LSU 13-0
  3. Clemson 13-0
  4. Oklahoma 12-1

Number five and number six…we agree with CBS Sports.  In our ranking system Georgia’s score was 21, and Oregon’s score was 20.

5. Georgia 11-2

6. Oregon 11-2

Number seven is where the argument is coming into play, and I know it really doesn’t matter because the top 4 teams make the College Football Playoff, but if it was, let’s say, the top 8, we would raise a serious question.

In our ranking system, Baylor’s score was 15.  That’s a 6 point difference between the number 7 team Baylor, and the number 5 team, Georgia.

Just for the heck of it, I decided to run Florida and Wisconsin through the ringer, and they both scored 17.

Table Seven Top 8

  1. Ohio State 13-0
  2. LSU 13-0
  3. Clemson 13-0
  4. Oklahoma 12-1
  5. Georgia 11-2
  6. Oregon 11-2
  7. Florida 10-2
  8. Wisconsin 10-3
