JUNE 31  aka  july 1 2016
I DON'T READ books  MUCH--.. SO WHY I WHIPPED THRU-- "TRIBE"  I DO NOT KNOW... EXCEPT IF HIS ASSUMPPTIONS ARE CORRECT, IT EXPLAINS  A GREAT DEAL FROM  COLLEGE  FRATERNITIES TO  CONGRESS TO ISIS.. AND   TO THE FACT THAT I HAVE... SO FAR.. HAD  NOT ONE RESPONSE TO THE INVITATION FROM THE 20  HOUSEHOLDS IN THE PARTERIDGEBERRY "DEVELPEMENT" NEXT DOOR. HOPEFULLY THEY MIGHT JUST SHOW UP.... SO WE BETTER BE PREPARED...I
"tribes." 
We have a strong instinct to belong to small groups defined by clear purpose and understanding--
Decades before the American Revolution, Benjamin Franklin lamented that English settlers were constantly fleeing over to the Indians-but Indians almost never did the same.  The most recent example of that attraction is combat veterans who come home to find themselves missing the incredibly intimate bonds of platoon life. The loss of closeness that comes at the end of deployment may explain the high rates of post-traumatic stress disorder suffered by military veterans today.

THAT AUTHOR .. WHOEVER ( ALSO WROTE PERFECT STORM)IN A VERY SHORT BOOK AS BOOKS GO... EXPLAINED A THEORY THAT HAS  CONFUSED ME EVER SINCE I WENT TO COLLEGE... IN THE GIRLS DORM IT WAS VERY CONFUSING... YOU JOINED A MISC COLLECTION OF FEMALES AND WERE THEN KNOWN AS GAMMAS OR KAPPAS OR DELTAS SORORITY  AND YOU DECIDED ANY GROUPE BUT YOURS WAS  AN  INFERIOR BUNCH OF  NER-DO-WELLS.AND YOU BARELY SPOKE TO ANYONE  OTHR THAN YOUR OWN GROUP  -- AND YOU SAT WITH THEM AT DINNER-- LIKE CONGRESS  THEY ALL SIT TOGETHER  NOT MUCH ACROSS THE AISLE BUSINESS OF INDIVIDUAL THINKING.

WANNA TALK ABOUT PACK MENTALITY?... AND WHY WE DON'T PUT MORE THAN 2 DOGS ON PUPPY HILL TOGETHER WITHOUT SUPERVISION???  THEY BAND TOGETHER AND PICK ON ONE.  I WOULD LIKE TO THINK DOGS WERE BETTER THAN MOST PEOPLE- BUT THEY DO PACK- AND PACKS ARE DANGEROUS.
I HOPE ALL THESE NEIGHBORS HAVE NOT MADE A PACK TO MAKE SDP LIFE DIFFICULT...  THE WARNING SIGNS ARE THERE.. I DID INVITE THEM TO JOIN US...AND EVERYONE THOUGHT IT WAS A VERY NICE INVITATION AND GESTURE...  SO  LET US PRAY.

IT HAPPENS WITH AGE-- NOT MY DECADES-- MUCH SOONER..
PUPPIES DON'T PACK... BUT WE HAVE SEEN --DOZENS OF TIMES AROUND HERE -- ALL OF A SUDDEN.. OND DAY COMES AND MEGAN AND I WILL DECIDE IT IS TIME TO BREAK UP THE LITTER INTO 2'S... YOU ALL HAVE SEE THAT ON CAMERA... AND THE 2'S GENERALY WORK- THEY ENJOY EACH OTHER'S COMPANY--- ADD THE 3'D AND ALL HEJJ BREAKS LOOSE... 
NOW LETS  GO TO HUMANS...  BABIES DON'T PACK.... UNTIL ONE KID  PICKS UP A TOY TRUCK AND WHACKS ANOTHER IN THE HEAD-- WHEN THE WHACKED YELLS,,  THE WHACKOR SMILES JUST A WEE BIT... AND IT STARTS.- MOMMY SAYS DON'T DO THAT - AND THEY DON'T WHEN SHE IS LOOKING... BUT 

THE WHACKER WILL FIND MORE SUBTLE WAYS OF BEING A BULLY-- IT IS A SHORT ROAD TO " I DON'T LIKE YOU AND MY FRIENDS DON'T LIKE YOU EITHER..".. WHICH IS ABOUT " WHERE OUR PRESIDENTIAL RACE NOW IS..."    "THEY TELL ME...."   I.E. ---"I HAVE FRIENDS....."
THE WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST IS 2016 YEARS OLD.. BASICALLY  BETWEEN RELIGIONS.??? HOW DIFFERENT IS THAT THAN  AT COLLEGE THE BETAS NEVER SAT WITH THE DELTAS- OR WHATEVER..
PACK MENTALITY.

I DO THINK THE AUTHOR OF "TRIBE" HAS A VALID POINT TO MAKE  PERSONAL SECURITY  OF A GROUP -- 
AND THEN THERE IS "THE MOM SONG"  "IF ALL YOUR FRIENDS JUMPED OFF A CLIFF WOULD YOU JUMP TOO?"  
HIS ANSWER- AND MINE- IS THERE IS A GREAT PROBABILITY -- YES.
***********
HOW DID I GET GOING ON THAT????
*************
I FORGOT  ALOT OF OTHER STUFF.

THANK HEAVENS FOR MY CLOCK ON THE WALL
IT  IS A MON-TUES- WED  TYPE.. AND IT TELLS ME THIS IS FRIDAY...

TGIF--- AND THERE AREN'T  TOOOOO MANY BRICKS LEFT... I WILL WATCH TO SEE WHEN I CAN FLIP TH E PURPLE EGG SWITCH...  HOPEFULLY...
