voilence is getting to much

For those of you reading this and you know me then you will be shocked about what I am writing about. I think that violence in the entertainment world is going to be the end of mankind. Many people think that part of the reason the Roman Empire fell was the people of Rome got to violent. They would spend hours at the Coliseum watching gladiatorial shows, animal hunts, or reenactments’ of great battles. Battles and hunts were often staged amid elaborate sets with movable trees and buildings. Such events were occasionally on a huge scale. Today mixed martial arts (MMA) pro-wrestling litter the pay-per-view Television. The best selling movies each year is the one with the most violence in it. ESPN’s hit T.V. show Sportscenter shows the biggest hits of the day in sports. The Daily News does the same thing so they can get more viewers. I am not seeing any end to this.

Nicknames are a fun and easy way to call someone with a long names, it is also something that is given to friends in with that word has a meaning to. I have a lot of nicknames Brother Booth was given to me by Travis and is use by him and any of his friends. One that is used the most and has followed me most of my life is Booth or Boothie. Then there is Joe which came my full name of Joseph. There are nicknames all around the world and of course this includes sports. Broadway Joe Namath, The Bus" - Jerome Bettis "The Edge" — Edgerrin James and many more. Well all love nick names.

"Briseann an dúchais tri shúile an chat"

"Briseann an dúchais tri shúile an chat" Irish Gaelic proverb that Meaning is “The true nature of someone's character is revealed through their eyes." I have followed this for many years. I try to look deep into a person eyes to see if they are hidden something or if they just may be flat out Lying. No matter how good you think that you are at it (I suck so bad that I do not lie) a person eyes tell the truth. Likewise, the eyes can tell you how much someone loves you. The eyes glisten over and the iris widens. No matter what you say or how you act the Eyes will tell the Truth.

how powerful is Food

There is not much other things that can bring complete strangers together like food can. How can you have a date. Every weekend there are more then a million strangers in ballparks, stadiums, arenas across the lands that have nothing in common but the team they love and they food they eat so they talk and for one day are friends. There are many countries that are define by there food. What is China without the Chinese food, and of course there is my all time get Country food from the land the I am proud to have it's blood running through my vain witch is Italian. I for one could not live without pizza, pasta, and many more things. Now the United States is part of this to. We have 5 different parts. 1st is the southern style. Everything there is slow cook and great. then you just more a little bit me south west to New Orleans you have Cajun and the spices. West some more you have Texas style and that is big steaks. Every thing there is Big and has some type of meat. California style is made of veggies and lots of them

Food for your mind

"Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?" is a line that is said by Clarence Oddbody in one of my Fav. movies of all time It's a Wonderful Life . The movie shows how we may not think that our lives mean anything but in fact they do. The way that we interact with others, help some one out or just being a friend when we need a friend the most. Most of all we should not measure our wealth on money but the impact that our lives have on other people. In the end the meaningless lives that we have are not so meaningless and we can see the good in everyone.

May the road rise to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rains fall soft upon your fields and, until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
Irish Proverb

No two people are equal, no two people are the same not even identical twins yet we all have the same basic goal in life and that is to find what makes us happy. We all have a different idea on what makes up happy and content. To unearth this “ultimate goal” we will embark on long and most difficult journey. Some time we will be blinded by this goal and think that we have achieved but we soon found that we have not. The hunt continues. Some of us will never find it and some of us do not know that we have found this happiest until it is too late and some sadly do not find it at all.

I have been working for the Giant for the last 7 years now and I do not understand how they can just change the rules over night and then not enforce they rules they have. On Friday I was packing so I had a hat on to keep the sun out of my eyes, I had about a half a hour left in my shift and Jerry came in and made me take off my hat because it was not a "Giant" hat. Now the 1st and only other person that said something to me was Eric and he is like "you are a dumb ass" it has been in the rule book. Ok if it has been there then why does no one enforce the rule? Then when they do enforce the rule they go after the newer people. There is a no food rule yet every day Angie, April, Terry and about a half dozen or so people eat the whole day. Same goes for the cell phones. No one has the balls at the Giant to say anything to April, Angie, Terry, or even Eric. They are the untouchables at the Giant. Now they are making you sign a paper about the cell phone.

In pack on People

I do not want to sound like I am going on a ego trip here, but in the last two week I have met or should I say meet again some people that I have not seen in years. Now that we where the Giant "T's" at work I do not were my name tag ( the truth is I never were it). I was facing off the dairy department when I heard some one call my name. It was not the normal Joe but some one said "Joe Booth" so I looked around and there was only three people in the department so I went back to work then she said it again. I stop and a girl walk up to me and it was Laura De Angelo. I have not talk to here since I was in the 4th grade, we talked for a good 15 minutes. When she left it got me thinking. What did I do for here to remember my name. A person meets a lot of people over the years and for some one to remember a name after that many years you have to do something right?

What is Normal?

There is a lot of people out there is the world that want to put everyone in to a nice and neat box. When someone does not fit into the box they are labeled weird, nut case or a long list of of names. I see normal as something you do on a daily bases. A lot of people that Travis is one of the weirdest people in the store, because he likes to play card games, and take long trips and many things. I think that if he did not do those things then there would be something wrong. Then if you see me eat you would think that I am very weird because I like to make everything into a sandwich or do to the fact that I like to use a lot pepper on my food. Then there is my wrestling stuff that I do. I like to have fun and if I am weird then so be it.

Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain.
It's not something you learn in school.
But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship,
you really haven't learned anything.

Muhammad Ali

Good Friends come to your aid without your asking. Over the last few weeks I have found out who are some of my greatest friends and for that I am thankful.

toxic person in the Giant

Is Eric a bad person? This is what one of my friends told me about Eric

bananaqueen1231 (10:57:30 PM): stop talking to Eric, before you tell me
bananaqueen1231 (10:57:43 PM): I don’t even know why you do
bananaqueen1231 (10:57:49 PM): he’s toxic to you Joe, and you know it
joecusecolts (10:57:51 PM): I am not talking to Eric
bananaqueen1231 (10:57:56 PM): no I mean period!
bananaqueen1231 (10:57:58 PM): stop it

Now it is true that Eric and I almost never see eye to eye in things, hell half the time I use Eric and his stories for my enjoyment. The person that told me that Eric is toxic worked with both me and Eric for years but now has left the Giant for a better job. She (I will call her banana queen) has been a close friend of my for years and has never lead me astray; I think of banana queen as a sensei to me I have learned a lot from her and I am a better person because of her.
