YESTERDAY AND TODAY

**YESTERDAY. After publishing 2 blogs, 1 a postcrossing to someone I mailed a 

picture postcard who lives in Hong Kong, I drove all of us to Rite Aid for flu 

shots, to CVS, to Taco Bell and McDonald's' for takeout and to Buehler's Fresh 

Foods for 3 copies of a document and a bag of 50% spinach, 50% greens for my 

nightly salad. 

After returning to the house, I had little time to work in the flower beds and the 

yard except for picking tomatoes from the plants in the southeast flower bed and

filling all the bird feeders. 

In the house, I prepared and ate my nightly salad while watching 'Law and 

Order' on TV and then my prayer and to bed. 

**TODAY. The weather forecast calls for high and low temperatures of 66° and 

40° with partly cloudy skies and no rain for the next 2 days. I need temperatures

between 60°and 80° to sow grass seed, the forecasted lows are well below 60°

for the next few days so, hopefully we'll have an Indian Summer in the next 

week or so. 

After publishing my daily blog and a postcrossing, I need to go outdoors to plant 

the 6 discounted plants (5 mums) I purchased at Lowes, pick ripe tomatoes, burn

the dry weeds in the fire pit, spray weed killer on the weeds in our driveway and

on weeds in the yard. I still have those flower bulbs I need to plant and, 

hopefully, I'll have time to do that. 


I HAVE SOMETHING ON MY MIND

**Why do some of us watch TV programs of evil? 

Why We Are Drawn to True Crime Shows.

Scott Bonn, Jan 08, 2016.

Scott Bonn is a criminology professor at Drew University and author of 'Why We 

Love Serial Killers.'

Excerpts from full article:

...."it is clear that true crime shows are tantalizing to millions of people. This 

conclusion is supported by the passionate and loyal following demonstrated by 

Investigation Discovery network, which is entirely devoted to the true-crime 

genre of programming.

If you spend any amount of time watching true crime TV, you will quickly notice 

that the shows almost always involve one particular type of crime: murder. 

Often, too, the focus is on exotic, bizarre and especially grisly or disturbing 

incidents of murder.

...."I spent several years conducting my own research on the allure of true crime. 

More specifically, I focused on what many people would consider to be the most 

heinous of all true crimes: serial murder.

...."The euphoric effect of true crime on human emotions is similar to that of 

roller coasters or natural disasters.

The public is drawn to true crime because it triggers the most basic and powerful 

emotion in all of us—fear. 

...."After much consideration, I believe that for many people, including me, true 

crime shows generally offer guilty pleasure to thrill-seeking adults. Why is there 

guilt? It feels wrong or inappropriate for us to delight in the horrors inflicted on 

real people in true crime shows. Yet many of us relish watching these shows 

anyway. But although we may feel a bit guilty about indulging in them, we 

simply cannot stop."

You know that I normally watch crime stories on TV while eating my evening 

meal. I watch Investigation Discovery network which is devoted entirely to crime 

stories. I use to watch 'Criminal Minds' who use the term Unsub which stands for 

"UNknown SUBject", but has become to violent for me to watch. 

Watching crime stories does not trigger the "most basic and powerful emotion 

in" me —fear. And I also do not fell guilty in watching crime stories, my major 

reason for watching is vengeance, catching the perpetrator and dealing equal 

justice for crime that she/him has committed. 

I still remember:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

2014 Peshawar School Attack.

Army Public School Auditorium, Peshawar.

Location of the attack: Army Public School is located in the centre

Location - The Army Public School, Warsak Road, Peshawar, Khyber 

Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan.

"On 16 December 2014, six gunmen affiliated with the Tehrik-i-Taliban (TTP) 

conducted a terrorist attack on the Army Public School in the northwestern 

Pakistani city of Peshawar. The militants, all of whom were foreign nationals, 

included one Chechen, three Arabs and two Afghans. They entered the school 

and opened fire on school staff and children, killing 141 people, including 132 

schoolchildren, ranging between eight and eighteen years of age. A rescue 

operation was launched by the Pakistan Army's Special Services Group (SSG) 

special forces, who killed all six terrorists and rescued 960 people."

I was helping Mother in Virginia at the time and asked 4 different religious 

groups "would you forgive the 6 terrorists here on earth or would you want 

vengeance if they were still alive?" The Brethren and Mennonites said forgive

and the Baptists and Pentecostals said to take vengeance here on earth. 

I know that Romans 12:19 KJV - Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, - Bible 

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans

+12%3A19&version=KJV

"Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is 

written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord."

I don't want to defy God but I'm on the side of the Baptists and the 

Pentecostals.
