Read My Other Blogs on WordPress

This blog, “The Deliberative Mind”, is my main blog. So far, there are:

  • 246 Posts; 11 Pages
  • 1,342 Categories; MY SUGGESTION IS: Go to the long list of categories and click some that may interest you. I did that myself and found one that I reread. I’d forgotten that I said that! (“Your Life from Your Mom and Dad’s View” About talking to your parents about their lives. You could also talk to your spouse the same way.) And it bears re-reading.
  • 4,093 Comments by visitors to these web sites (with SPAM eliminated).
  • 73,242 Spam Comments (Whew! I erase them all.)
  • 258 Views, busiest day
  • So far, 42,269 views
  • When I started in November, 2006, I had no idea it would come this far. You can access my very first blog entry.()
  • Please keep an eye out for my book when it comes out. (Not soon.) Its aim is to overturn the soil of our entire society and plant something new in place of the old crop staple.

I have nine more blogs on special subjects.

In Memoriam — Alice Pfeiffer Deethardt
My beloved wife of 54 years.

We would like everyone who knew her to write a comment about her. This site was intended to take the place of a memorial service at some local chapel because Alice had friends and former students scattered all over the map and this method would allow all to participate as those sorts of meetings usually go, people standing up and testifying to the qualities of persons passed away. However, the news about Alice has, apparently, not gotten around. No comments by former students have been written. I will let this web log stand for a while, hoping to see some comments about her, just as they did in her yearbook comments, nearly all of which claimed she was their favorite teacher of English, poetry, and diagraming, as well as a witty, tireless worker and unforgettable teacher and year book advisor.

  1. Hi there, I think your web site may be having browser compatibility problems.
    When I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however
    when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Apart from that, great site!
    [JFD says: I do not see the problem on my end. Sorry.]

  2. First of alll I want to say excellent blog! I hhad a quick question in which
    I’d like to assk if you don’t mind.I was curkous to find out
    how you center yourself and clear your hed prior to
    writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.

    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just tryng to
    figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Thank you!
    [JFD says: 10 to 15? Hey, that’s par for the course. I go longer.
    My comments are not “ready-made”. I usually write when the idea
    moves me, has formed in my mind so when I sit down to write it,
    it spills out. Once I have several sentences in mind, then I can
    begin at the machine and let that which has formed drive the
    rest of the elaborations on the general idea. Do you have a rich
    interior “life of thought” that needs some “taming”? Do you sit down
    at the machine and say to yourself, “now, what do I want to write?”
    Not I. I have to have a powerful idea to drive me to he machine. My
    mind is usually full enough of ideas and wanting to say something.
    Why is that? Self expression of a point of view that may enlighten
    others. It’s a service mentality, That’s why I was a teacher. I see
    the world and try to see how it can be “bettered”, from my experience
    of it. As a crusade. There has to be that drive.]

  26. Great post.

  27. Hey are using WordPress for your
    blog platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and
    set up my own. Do you need any html coding expertise
    to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!

    • WordPress, yes. HTML? Yes. Buy a little book about HTML. Learn some basics.
      I altered the theme I took from WordPress just a bit, for the typeface etc.
      However, I would have been better off with using the “h1” and “h2” and so
      on, which was the style of the theme I chose. Those basics feed int SEO
      (whatever that means) which is important for getting lots of attention from
      everybody and higher rankings. I. personally, have been appreciative of
      having people read my blogs and saying they like to read some of what I am saying.
      I have never chased a large readership for the purpose of high rankings, by
      GOOGLE, or for the purpose of making money by advertising to imporove my
      ability to sell something, for $$$$ profit. That motive underlies all of the
      SEO stuff, I think, which I am supposed to follow in writing for my blog.
      HTML expertise? No. But some basic acquaintance, yes.
      The book on it will come in handy if you intend to do any kind of work
      on the web.
