We are a nation of many religions, beliefs, atheists & agnostics. Freedom means the freedom to believe in any or no religions. One is free to choose what and if they believe. Our constitution protects these freedoms.
In remembering those who have served and those we have lost we here at Fearsome Beard believe it is important to respect all beliefs and or lack thereof.
Religions, beliefs and lack thereof are a choice we live, enjoy and practice.
There is ultimately a deeper level to what we are to each other. The level of relationship which transcends these belief practices.
Remember with love, respect and compassion.
Happy Memorial Day to all the Yanks out there. May all our dear readers, no matter where they are, remember someone they loved and lost today and feel the gratitude for the gift.
Happy 420 y’all!
420? Light up time. Mary Jane. Cannabis. Marijuana.
Now I ain’t smoke no Mary Jane in well over 5 years. When I got meeself sober, I got sober. I wasn’t really into the gonja later in my years of partaking mind altering substances any way. I preferred the booze. I did smoke pleanty of weed though. First time I smoked was at age 13 at a Doobie Brothers concert. I shit you not. In my twenties I smoked most every day. Only in the evenings though as I had work to get done during the days. Later on in my forties I lost interest in the stuff as it pretty much only made me paranoid by that point, so it lost its lure.
Nowadays it’s being legalized left and right. My home state just legalized it in November. I actually voted to legalize it even though I’m a sober dude. My view is that marijuana being illegal only creates more crime, unnecessary crime. Legalize it, regulate it and tax it.
Now about that first Doobie and those incredible artist who I remember from that very first concert….
Needless to say this is a much tamer crowd than that night of my puberty. However the talent of the artists shines through in this live version of a Doobie Brothers classic.
Smoke ’em if you got ’em!
Wow! What a game. Back and forth scores, multiple home runs and even an opposing team (SF Giants) grand slam and our Beloved Padres eeked out a 7-6 win over San Fransisco’s Giants. It was a down to the wire fun to watch nail biter! In other words a well matched good game. Baseball, at its best!
Opening day National Anthem
Fearsome and his opening day posse at Petco Park
After our return home we settle into bed to find out that Pentanonix just posted one fucking incredible remake of one of Rock Music’s best classics.
Wow, just wow! …oh yeah if you even slightly enjoyed Queen, this will be so worth your time.
Today marks our beloved San Diego Padres home opener.
Opening day is a day of dreams, hopes, beginnings, the smell of a freshly cut grass and irresistable scents of barbecue, hotdogs, popcorn and those damn garlic fries.
Our Padres aren’t expected to do much this year. The team is very young, inexperienced and some say “experimental”. In baseball this doesn’t really matter. Each game and each at bat is a new beginning.
As is Fearsome’s want, we continue our tradition of posting John Fogerty’s Centerfield to mark the monumentous occiasion and local holiday of Opening Day!
Yes …we will be there. We wouldn’t miss such an occiasion. We love baseball.
Spring Equinox at Chichen Itza
Do you see the serpent?
In the many travels I’ve been blessed with in this lifetime, I’ve visited Chichen Itza twice. The first time was back in the days when one could climb the pyramid, which I did. The second trip into that dense jungle was on a spring equinox during which I observed the brief appearance of the serpent. The serpent only appears twice a year to mark each equinox which signals either planting or harvest. Like most civilizations, both are celebrations for the Maya.
The pyramid, officially known as the Temple of Kukulcan, is a wonder of construction, precision and magnificence. One can precisely tell the time and day of the year simply by the position of the sun and the shadows upon it.
I love Mexico.

Stumbled upon this after I had finished all my Christmas posts. Brought tears to my eyes. I had this record as a child. No longer remember what happened to it. Now I have it here.
Compassion, love, understanding, goodwill and peace.
That’s what Christmas is all about.
…now let’s dance!
As is yet another holiday tradition for this sentimental Beard, we send you greetings From Ocean Beach CA right here in San Diego.
This years Beach Christmas tree seems to bend in awe of Fearsome Himself. 😉
May your Christmas Eve be joyous and peaceful!
This year we mark the first evening of Chanukah by not only lighting the first candle of Fearsome’s menorah at sundown, but also but posting Adam Sandler’s original classic from 1994 Here Comes Hanukkah.
Happy Hannukah! May peace, love, light and laughter be yours.
…only a hippopotamus will do
Take it away Gayla…
Yet another of Fearsome’s favorite holiday tunes as we continue our traditional posts of the season.
What do you want for Christmas? or Chanukah? or Both? This year they coincide seamlessly.
Being it is December 23, a dear reader sent me a message wishing me a Happy Festivus. I appreciate his sincere greetings.
A Happy Festivus to all and to all an enjoyable Airing of Greivences as well as successful Feats of Strength!
In order to help you along into the frenzy of last minute shopping, Fearsome continues his seasonal traditions by presenting Barbra Streisand’s Jingle Bells as lip-synced by Babs Levine…
