Rainy Days and Mondays, (or other days)

Posted by Thomas Ault on January 8, 2016 at 10:40 AM Comments comments (0)

Well, it is time for me to say something that is supposed to be exciting, interesting, mind boggling, or just plain good! Unfortunately, it is one of those gloomy days in Jefferson City when the sun doesn't shine, the rain keeps on coming and the threat of "old man winter" is on the rise. My mind isn't focusing in on anything spectacular so I am going to suggest something you might pursue.

If it is one of those days in your place of habitant as well, rather than reading some boring message from me or anyone else, why not just sit back, relax, and take a trip? You can't sit back, at home, and take a trip you say? I am here to tell you that is just not true. Being a writer, and author, an editor or whatever you call yourself these days, all of those titles mean nothing unless you have an imagination.

Let's get those energies all moving in the right way by taking a look at http://flicker.com/photos/tjault . I think if you check the album section you will find something of interest to you.

That's about it for today. Oh yes, I almost forgot to mention my granddaughter, Marie has recently written a book, "Ghosts Stories and Legends of Murphy, N.C. YOu might give it a look, right after you read on of my books.

Have a great day and don't let the gloomy weather keep you tied up in a little cocoon!

ISIS Versus World

Posted by Thomas Ault on August 24, 2015 at 7:55 PM Comments comments (0)

Well, I would like to write about my new book, "The Final Chapter." Unfortunately, I read the paper today, and then I listened to the world news, then I talked to a couple of people, and now, thoughts about my book have become less important than something else on my mind.

I realize that I am stepping on toes; am irritating people in my church group; am upsetting our minister; and probably making a lot of other enemies, or at least adversaries, but I just can't help it! I have to speak out!

Basically my outburst is based on a simple principle called "survivorship'!

I don't know how you  feel, but I am tired of reading about all of the people fleeing their country and letting the Islamic State take everything from them including there lives, in many cases. You know, if we were to eliminate all guns from our citizens so there would no way to fight back, how long would it be before we United States of American people would be running for our lives?

It is time for the world countries to band together as one enormour unit, then invade as an enormous unit of bodies, the Islamic State members. No doubt there would be a tremendous amount of bloodshed, and a lot of it from those country's armies and peoples eliminating the Islamic State members.  The question then is, "Would it be worth it to rid the world of these extremists?" And at the same time to send a message to all of those who think these terrible people have something good to say that they might understand, we as a world united will not tolerate them anymore.!

I feel deeply for those that have been ripped from their homes, having to leave their businesses, thier belongings, and flee in fear from these bullies.

I remember, long ago, my older brother told me that if you are faced with a bully, be sure and hit him hard and where it hurts before he hits you and that will end a future problem from the bully. I don't know that this fits this particular situation, but I do believe that had this attitude been adopted in the very beginning, rather than this "nice guy" routine, "let's talk about it", the whole world today would be a much better place.

Let's not blame the Methodists, the Presbyterians, the Catholices, the Christians, the Muslims, the Jews or anyone else! These are militant bullys who need to be eliminated, plain and simple.

The time has come for the world to stand up and say "NO MORE!"

This Ridiculous Money Game

Posted by Thomas Ault on August 23, 2015 at 3:40 PM Comments comments (0)

I can't help it! Sometimes things I read bring out the inner feelings that I try to avoid as much as possible. But, try this on, these are two direct quotes from the Business Section of our News Tribune, and under NEW YORK (AP).

(1) "If oil keeps falling, it is likely to drag down the S&P500, Drillers and other energy companies make up a significant chunk of that index"

(2)The upside to falling oil is that all the money that drivers are saving at the gas pump should mean MORE SPENDING by them at stores----and a faster growning U.S. economy. But Americans are choosing to pay off debt instead of going shopping."

Now after reading those two portions of the report on our economy I find it very very difficult to have a lot of sympathy for those that gouge us at the pumps ever chance they get to pocket more of our hard earned cash, and then for the other large corporate owners to feel that we should immediately go out and spend more money (that we don't have) to incur more debt with higher interest for them to take home, rather than be responsible citizens and pay off our debts!

While the "0" interest rates that have boosted the stock prices, they have also made people stop saving since they get less than .5 % on their savings compared to past years when you could actually save money for a worthwhile purpose and use that as a fund for old age retirement.

Seems to me that soon the government will have us all in their pockets and that could be the end to a long period of a wonderful life in this once beautiful country of ours.

I don't know any of you feel, but your comments are always welcome.

The Final Chapter

Posted by Thomas Ault on August 16, 2015 at 7:35 PM Comments comments (0)

As I sit here on the mantle, I can hear the rhythmic clicking of my inner working as the pendulum swings from side to side. It is as though the very heartbeat of time is calling to me from both the past and the present with questions about the future. Questions which I cannot answer.

So much time has passed since my beginning in 1879. Families have come and gone, and new people and places have taken their place. No object, such as I am, is able to do what I have done with my story telling about the past...after all a simple clock cannot possess anything but gears and springs that the maker has placed within it. Or can it?

After "Every Hour Counts", and "Moving West," it is time for "The Final Chapter." I will to tell the writer what has happened, as much as possible, even though my dictation is hardly heard over the din of todays new electronic world.

Good News

Posted by Thomas Ault on October 10, 2014 at 5:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Back again...just like a bad penny, I continue to show up.

First let me apologise for not writing more since July. As you may or may not know, my wife, Paulette, and I have moved to a new place in Missouri. Being closer to her grandchildren was very important to her and being within a reasonable distance to my sons was important to me as well.

There is a writer's club here at the Lincoln University which I am looking forward to investigating. Barnes and Noble is now carrying, on line, "The Incident." I am very pleased about that.

Also, several young folks have approached me regarding the pictorial book featuring animals, birds, insects, and flowers that Jake, my dog and I wrote some time ago...(Jakes World for Kids) seems like the educational value has been well accepted and while the book is on the higher price side of things, it is apparently not out of reason for having 80 color photographs in it rather than the old comic style animals etc., that many childrens authors have been using.

Last, but not least, we enjoying this new little city of Jefferson. The rolling hills, neighborly folks, neat downtown and an ice cream store to be envied by anyone who likes ice cream (and I do). There are things for all ages to do. The downtown has something going on every weekend and for the most part these things are free to attend.

There are several small play house theaters here, and of course it is the capital of Missouri so there are constantly tours of culture for those that have that bent.

All  in all, things are pretty great here at Ault's Place and I look forward to hearing from you.

Consider This

Posted by Thomas Ault on October 10, 2014 at 5:15 PM Comments comments (0)

I have not done a lot of complaining, well except to my wife who pays no attention to me anyway so that doesn't count, but you know, there is a lot to consider complaining about today.

Fortunately for me, my generation had probably the best life of any that were or ever will be in our blessed United States of America. We had employment, family, neighbors that we actually talked to and knew, schools that taught us to be considerate, to be wise in our thinking about others, that taught us about history, appreciation for those that had paved the way for what we were able to have, and above all, we were taught to be honest, God fearing, law abiding, and caring people. We actually had a conscience developed from birth because we had two parents, one who worked and took care of us financially and one who worked at home, keeping a clean invironment, and being available to use when we needed someone.

I wonder about today. Every television show has a certain amount of sex, homosexuality, lies, torment, and/or lack of concern for each other, let alone themselves (the characters). How does this affect the children of today?

The news media today lives for the gossip, the outlandish, the ridiculous things that they can blow completely out of proportion to get "readership." Many of the actors of today live for the publicity, act out foolish things to get attention, portray spoiled non-caring individuals who think that anything they can do for a buck is worth doing with no conscience. How does that affect the children of today?

Never has the truth been so stretched by the government, the news media, the general public servants as those things are today. The moto seems to be "Anything for a buck is okay." I can still remember when in "Gone with the Wind" it was terrible because the word "DAMN" was used. One time I, being quite innocent, took my sons and their little girl friends to see a show I think it was called "Seven Little Madens in a Row", or something like that. It starred Rock Hudson ( who a lot of you don't know or remember) who was coming out from a tradgek tisme in his life which I was totallly unaware of. How embarrasing is was that I had taken these innocent kids to a movie that had I known what is was about would never have done so. (My motto in those days regarding picture shows was simple, IF I WOULDN'T WANT MY CHILDREN TO SEE IT I DID NOT WANT TO SEE IT EITHER!. Well, surprise, surprise to me.

My point here is that as parents, at that time (the early 60's), we cared about our children.  Today that show would be considered tame and since is would have been so tame if would be for any child to watch.

Our school system now thinks that there should be no secrets. Don't hold anything back,  leave no room for imagination or no doubt about anything. Maybe you agree with that but I don't!

Now the question you are all pondering, "How did his kids turn out?"

My oldest, unfortunately was unable to produce children but is married and living very happily a couple hundred miles from here. We see him and his wife frequently and we have a wonderful relationship.

My youngest is an IBM executive, married a lovely southern lass, and has four grandchildren. He lives the good life and we see him as often as is possible as his job of traveling allows.

I don't know about you but I would not change the way I brought my sons up but I am glad that I don't have to face the problems of today. My prayers are with any and all of you facing the parenthood of this new, not so brave, world.
