won't get fooled again

My friend Marian gave me some advice on Photography; "try to get 1 shot that tells the whole story".  Well I think this one qualifies. If you came the Pinecrest Gardens Farmers Market on Sunday hoping to  photograph Food Network " Stars"  this is what you likely got .   An army of Production Assistants  policed the area telling everyone " no Cameras no pictures , NO PICTURES !! , How ever Roseanne Person was able to" Clearly" get a  picture of Bobby Flays right leg !!
I was not much a fan of "The Who"  but as I drove away from the market this Sunday , an old song came to mind . I felt foolish    , The Classic song is not an Anti-War Anthem , its more a statement that;( actions and events can have results we cannot predict. Don't expect to see what you expect to see. Expect nothing and you might gain everything. The song was meant to let politicians and revolutionaries alike know that what lay in the centre of my life was not for sale) .  Being fooled is more about personal expectations .  Prior to this event  I had visions of large crowds, great Sale$ and TV !!  In the end  I salvaged a story and a life lesson.  
A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.

Algebra is always correct, but seldom useful (Pi*R^2-->)

I had an Algebra teacher try to tell me "Pie are Square" I told that Idiot "Pie are round and cornbread are square !"  Well  I can add and subtract and count dead presidents and you might guess not Valedictorian . Another thing I can count on is getting sick this time of the year , long hours and stress at the Club and long hours being wet and cold at the farm adds up to a visit to Urgent Care in Homestead, I've never even seen my United Health
Care,  Primary  Care Physician,  and probably never will, Urgent Care works for me . I normally get sick around March 1st  but lucky me I'm 1 month early !!   This year besides dehydration and exhaustion I slept on a table and got a  Neck spasms, (Torticollis, WryNeck)  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torticollis  ..  Well  my Math tells me that 2 days in bed = no Dead Presidents and $100 for urgent care and $5 for Valium are a tax deduction . In life you will encounter much more difficult problem's than are found on an Algebra exam , you don't need to have a 4.GPA in life ,you only need you're best effort ..  But all this writing is making me hungry for some cornbread .

Half time in America

We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't." ♥ fight club
