Real Texans Don't Need Air Condition While They Drive

Real Texans Don't Need Air Condition While They Drive

I've been a Texan all of my life.  The years that I didn't live in Texas, I lived like a Texan.  When I have travel abroad, I lived like a Texan.  If you are born in Texas, you are a Texan.  However it is how you live your life that makes you a Real Texan.

Today it is common place for everyone to drive their cars with air condition.  Of course at one time there wasn't air condition in cars, or if they had it, it really didn't work well until the 1970's.  All we had was two windows down driving at 55 MPH for air to cool us down.  When standing still at a stop light, we had to deal with the heat.

Did that make us tougher not using air condition?  I would say yes.  In Texas it is hot.  If you live here, you need to be able to survive the heat.  Why live in a place that you can't walk or drive in?  Does that make any sense?

Most people that I know in Texas or other places, have to get their air condition fixed as soon as it gets broken.  It is like their car is now unusable.  In Texas, or the South for that matter, try selling a car without air condition.  That is how dependent people have gotten on air condition in their cars.

I would challenge you all, fellow Texans and others, to drive with the windows down.  Get some fresh air, let the wind on your face.  I bet you will like it.  If you sweat, then you know you are alive and normal.  You walk from one air condition house to another, you could go a few minutes driving without air condition.  It will make you tougher.  We could use more tougher and people of true grit in this world.

However you are talking to the guy that wears a suit while biking.  Not many have the grit and strength that I have.  Perhaps you have it in you.  I believe in you.  You can tough it out, you don't need air condition while you drive.  Be a Real Texan with me!

Now is Now, Then was Then

Now is Now, Then was Then

Now, that's today.  Then, that was the past.  One can't be in the past or now at the same time.   In your memories, thoughts, perhaps, but in reality, no.

The memories you have from the past will guide you if you let them.  The past will help you remember what decisions you made, some were good ones, others not so much.  If you use the past to help you now, the future would look brighter.

It would be great to have the knowledge of the past to always help us with the future.  We don't, so we can only do our best to make the future a better place.  Let's all work together to make this world a place that we can all enjoy and be creative!  Compute that!

Cars.  In East Texas, you have to have one.  In Texas, you have to have one.  For most of the country, you need a car except for a few large cities.

Why do we have to have an automobile?  Could we not just walk or ride a bicycle?  How did it happen that we all rely on cars for our transportation?

Independence.  In this country, we don't want to rely on others.  We want the freedom, the independence to go where and when we want.  Relying on yourself is important in the USA.  Really important in Texas too!

As time has gone by, the price of the automobile has risen as well.  At one time, most people would buy a car in hard earned cash.  Families would save up their money and buy their dream car.  Today most have to buy a car on time.  Those times and payments are getting longer and larger.  If the price of cars continues to grow, a car may become like owning a horse, beyond the cost of most people today.

The new cars have keyless entry, air condition, BlueTooth, USB ports, back up video screen and many other gizmos that add to the price of the vehicle.  It would be nice to see a new car with keys, mirrors and roll down windows.  Every piece that is electronic is a piece that will wear out one day.  There are cars in junkyards that you could still roll down the windows that are over fifty years old.

I love my Mustang, it is a fun car to drive.  However, I would love to get on a train or a bus and get around town, the state or the country.  I love the independence and the freedom of owning a car, however, it would be nice to sit back and work on my creative content as I travel.   Perhaps I would travel more.

And by the way, where is my flying car and talking robot?
Compute that!

Things That Do Not Compute

Things That Do Not Compute

After living a great life, I still see things that do not compute.  Does this mean that I think I am smarter than others?  No, rather it is interesting to me to see something that does not compute and think why doesn't that person see that it is not computing?  Funny how life is at times.

When I look at something that doesn't compute, I do try to see both sides.  I do realize that I could be in error, so I want all of the data that I can find to make a good and just decision.   There are times that I feel that others don't do this.

Disagreeing with someone is fine.  Arguing with someone that has their mind completely made up will almost never change someone's mind.  Think of the last time some talked to you and only with words, changed your mind.  Not often, if ever.

How you change your mind is through experience.  Life.  Living life.  That is how you grow as a person.  You can't read a book or watch a television show to really change your mind, you have to go out into the big wide world and experience this wonderful gift yourself.

When you get old, what do you want to tell your grandkids, that time you liked someone's post on a social media page?  Or that time you met a person that changed your life, that person that you helped that changed their life.  The time when you made, did or saw something that made your life complete.  Those are the stories you want to tell future.

Go see the world, go to every place that you have dreamed about, meet people that you have always wanted to meet, do what you want to do that makes you happy and gives you joy, smile, laugh, cry, hug, tell the people that you love that you love them while you can, apologize more and realize in the end, what does it really matter?  It doesn't.  Live your amazing life!  It will be over sooner than you realize.  So compute that!

Watch it, it does compute!
