I, God, welcome you to my blog!

The good book says only God is good, so it seems to me somebody needs to step up.

I hope you enjoy reading this, the Jesse Journal, as much as I have enjoyed writing it.

F.Y.I. There are about 1000 posts..

Here's a quote from Fyodor Dostoevsky to start things off right: Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.

what's in the word Berkeley?


Berk or burk
(british) a stupid person or fool,
shortened from Berkeley or Berkshire hunt,
rhyming slang for cunt

while berke (verb) means:
1.to murder, as by suffocation, to leave no or few marks of violence.
2.to suppress or get rid of by some indirect maneuver.

ley means law in spanish

lee means:
protective shelter (the lee of the rock gave us protection from the storm)

ley means:
a pewter made of 80%tin and 20%lead (from aley, obsolete of alloy)
a leu (literally, lion): the coin and monetary unit of Romania, equal to 100 bani

but wait, there's more:
ley also means, arable land put down to grass (grassland or pastureland)
used in "ley line", a line joining two prominent points in a landscape.

and of course don't forget URKEL!

kele means "to cool" (obsolete, from Chaucer). Brr. kele.

BER stands for Bit Error Rate, which means:
the fraction of a message or block of data which is wrong.
(such as, what is the BER of Christianity?)

I like the meanings of Berkeley as
-shelter from stupidity
-shelter from cunning murderous violence

of course, there's also (George) Berkeley himself: link; (wikipedia)
