The musings and meandering thoughts of a crotchety old man as he observes life in the world and in a small, rural town in South East Nebraska. My Pledge-Nulla dies sine linea-Not a day with out a line.

Word of the Day: Te Deum Laudamus
TE DEUM LAUDAMUS. "We praise You, O god." first words of an ancient Christian hymn of praise and thanksgiving, sometimes called the Ambrosian hymn but now believed to have been written by St. Niketas in the fourth century.
Traditionally, rather than singing 'Auld Lang Syne' at midnight to greet the New Year, the Te Deum Laudamus was said or sung.
