Jesus quickly summed up the commandments for us by teaching us to love God and love others. We spend decades working to get unconditional love right.
Dogs are blessed with this birthright from the get go, which explains why they don’t need to stay as long.

One of the perks about retirement is mostly doing what you really like to spend time doing (like writing a blog, volunteering your time, etc.) and choosing your own job title which comes with the territory. I recently stumbled across a post that listed some of the more contemporary marketing self-titles that must have been created in the spirit of fun and ordinary nonsense.
Most everyone who works for a living probably has some sort of job title associated with a pay grade and career path. The ubiquitous marks of rank and authority are rampant throughout all of humanity in corporations, military, government, religion, aboriginal tribes, etc. I recall one specific promotion where I was told to come up with my own job title for a new venture and I thought long and hard about a sensible and relevant title. But some of the new on-line start ups are having more fun with the anti-establishment monikers that permeate corporate cultures. I’m kind of keen on Exaulted Fubah Coyote for my retirement title.
Here’s a small sampling of idea starters to generate your very own personal title at home and on social media, even if you have one of those stiff shirt corporate ones at work. You can be all you can be by subbing the asterisks for one or more or whatever (even if the title will only be titular in nature)!
