“Borden’s Blather”

Entry One In FRIENDS-OF-KUCHED” Week

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT …

Jim Borden’s Blog – “Borden’s Blather” – Is The Writer’s Inherently Charming, Intelligent And Witty Presentation, And Well, It’s Simply Neat Fun To Hang Out There …   

 

FROM JIM ABOUT JIM

… Emerson’s words capture perfectly the kind of life I hope to live:

“To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”

 

HOW I SEE IT …

J. Bo (*) Shares Moments And Curiosities Of Everyday Life As Testimony That Is Immediately Pleasing And Satisfying To The Reader’s Curiosity And Appetite To Learn From An Engaging Educator.

The Range Of Topics, Depth Of Research, And Knowledge … Reveals A Tidy Nugget Of  Purposeful Information – A Teachable Moment – Entertaining The Reader (Guest) Especially Well With Reason To Come Back For Seconds And Thirds …

“Jim’s Comments Are The Real Gems Of Borden’s Blather.  I Was Welcomed The Very Moment I Connected With Jim.  He Seemingly Answers Every Comment, And Does So With Genuine Interest And No Small Serving Of Sharp, Observational Humor.  You’ll Go From A Smile To A Laugh.”  

And Leave With A Reminder That There Are Genuinely Good Folks Blogging On WordPress.  

 

MY FAVORITE POST

All Of Them …  

But If I Had To Narrow It Down To A Couple Dozen, I’d Say Don’t Miss Jim’s Weekly Feature “Monday Music”

Spoiler Alert:  It’s Published On Monday’s And It’s About Music.

 

SEE FOR YOURSELF

“Long-winded talk with no real substance. Drop in daily for your regular dose of nonsensical blather.”  JQB

MICK’S NOTE:

(*) I Didn’t Ask Jim’s Permission To Refer To Him As “J. Bo”  … Any Resemblance To J. Lo Would Be Coincidental And False.  J. BoLo Share A First Initial, A Period, A Space (Not Literally Together … The Same Space Between Names … Uh, The Long Key On A Keyboard), And The Second Letter In Their Last Name. 

That’s All I’m Saying …

“And, Thanks, Jim.”

Preamble To The Way Back Home (Part 1)

MY BLESSED DAY AT THE DAILY BREAD FOOD BANK

I arrived twenty-two minutes early, parked Blue, and sat listening to my daily Spotify-curated eclectic mix – Classic Rock Anthems courtesy of Seger, Springsteen and the Rolling Stones … drizzled with bubble-gummy ABBA, Boney M and yeah, the Brothers Gibb stuttering Ja-Ja-Ja-Jive Talkin’.  The Gap Band got the funk all the way down with Party Train ending the set.  I needed something to lift the malaise draping over me.  Music, for once, didn’t get it done.
