The purpose of Mr. Dickie's Blog is to provide a place where I can post quotations I like and write about things that are on my mind. As of the summer of 2011 I have NetworkedBlogs posting a link to this blog to Facebook.
My friend, do not trust the way you feel at the moment, for your feelings will soon change. All your life you are subject to change, even if you do not want to be. Sometimes you are happy, sometimes you are sad, sometimes you are calm, sometimes restless, now full of devotion, now not, now studious, now lazy, now solemn, now lighthearted. The person who is wise and well instructed in spiritual things is above these changes, not paying attention to his own feelings or which way the wind blows. Instead, he directs his full attention toward reaching his desired goal.
(Thomas 'a Kempis, The Imitation Of Christ, Book 3, Chapter 33)

I have been retired from the U.S. government for many years. I was a long time paying member of AOL until May 2009. Until October 2008 I had a fairly extensive genealogy website on AOL. They dropped support.
