Blog from Melody Ranch California

Melody Ranch, located in Newhall, California, is a historic movie studio that has been used for the filming of countless Western films and TV shows. The studio was originally built in the 1930s by Gene Autry, the legendary singing cowboy and actor, and was known as "Gene Autry's Melody Ranch."

The ranch covers over 100 acres and features a western town set, complete with a saloon, jail, and other buildings commonly found in a western town. The ranch also has a large outdoor arena that was used for rodeo and other live events.

Throughout the years, Melody Ranch has been the site of filming for many classic Western films and TV shows, including "The Cisco Kid," "The Lone Ranger," "Gunsmoke," and "Bonanza." Many famous actors, such as Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, and Clayton Moore, have filmed on the ranch.

In addition to Westerns, Melody Ranch has also been used for other genres of film and television. The ranch was used for the filming of the popular TV series "Deadwood" and the movie "American Sniper."

Despite its storied history, Melody Ranch fell into disrepair in recent years, and in 2016, the ranch was purchased by a group of investors who are committed to restoring and preserving the studio. The ranch is currently open to the public for tours and events, offering visitors the chance to step back in time and experience the magic of a Western movie set.

Female Delusion

What percent of males meet a woman's mate criteria?

Invite your girl friends to complete this checklist.  It asks for:
  • Age
  • Married or Not
  • Race
  • Minimum Height
  • Minimum Income
The calculator checks the population statistics and show the percent of males matching the criteria.

From the website's author, "How did I come up with the Female Delusion Calculator idea?  During my "dating career" as a man living in North America I couldn't help noticing that women often have unrealistic expectations. They see themselves being passed around by those high quality men they feel entitled for, failing to realize those few men are in high demand. Time passes, options shrink, their standards don't change and they wonder why they are still single."

The Female Delusion Calculator is a tool that can help women discern what is realistic from what is highly unlikely.

Enjoy!"

Nothing Says “I Love You” Like a Prenup

From: https://ironshrink.com/2022/02/nothing-says-i-love-you-like-a-prenup/

I once heard a rabbi say the possibility of divorce is a positive force in a marriage because it’s an incentive to be well-mannered.

I agree. The urge to be courteous is reduced if your spouse has no escape. At least that’s what Anne Boleyne told me.

However, I would add an important qualifier: the possibility of divorce is a positive incentive for spouses who have something to lose. Not everyone has something to lose. The pain of divorce, and the incentive to protect the marriage, are not necessarily distributed evenly. I think that’s evident in a few statistics.

In the US, women initiate 70 to 80 percent of divorces (American Sociological Association 2015). There are various theories as to why, most of them conveniently aligned with the political beliefs of whoever is doing the theorizing.

Women also win 80% of child custody cases (Grall 2020) and almost all alimony awards (Sorge and Scurlock 2013). At the societal level, there’s a pretty strong correlation between the one who initiates divorce (the woman) and the one who profits by it (again, the woman).

I’m careful about reading too much into correlations. (Did you know the divorce rate in Maine correlates with per-capita consumption of margarine? Bastard margarine.) Just because women generally fare better in family court doesn’t mean they initiate divorce for fun and profit. A few sociopaths aside, divorce isn’t fun for anyone.

However, I think it’s fair to say women are not disincentivized in the same way as men. That turns the Rabbi’s incentive on its head.

The History of Womanhood That Feminists Don’t Want You to Know

Originally written for the relaunch of Ladies Against Feminism in 2010, under the title “The Truth About Women that Feminists Don’t Want You to Know.”

The recent naming of Nancy Pelosi as the “most powerful woman in American history” has sparked national discussion on both the history of women in America and the nature of woman’s power. As Speaker of the House, Mrs. Pelosi holds the highest civic position any American woman has held to date, and her hand in putting through the recent Health Care Bill will have huge historic implications. Though we don’t see it as a great advance for women to finally be oppressed by one of our own, this is undeniably a kind of power.

But behind this recent tribute to Mrs. Pelosi is this presupposition: “Women find their power in holding the positions of men – the traditional women’s role has no power. The power traditional women exercised in the past doesn’t count.”

Americans are ready to believe this because they long ago adopted a feminist view of history. Before feminism led women from the kitchen to the boardroom, we are told, women’s minds withered in the confines of a “comfortable concentration camp,” their talents never developed or given room to benefit society. Before feminism bought women the positions of men, woman’s influence was hushed and smothered beneath the oppression of male dominance. Before feminism invented justice, equality, and rights for women, women were deprived of education, opportunities, property, and power.

All thanks to feminism, we are now surely the strongest, smartest, most capable, most valued, best educated generation of women the West has ever seen. So we are to believe.

Young ladies, this is for you!!!

meghan markle black bikiniA woman arrived in a store wearing clothes that showed her body too well. The shop owner took a good look at her, asked her to sit down, looked straight into her eyes and said something she will never forget in life.

“Lady, everything that God has made valuable in this world, is covered up and hard to see and find."

1. Where can you find diamonds?
• In the ground, covered and protected.

2. Where are the pearls?
• Deep in the ocean, covered and protected in a beautiful shell.

3. Where can you find gold?
• Under ground, covered with layers of rock and to get there you have to work hard and dig deep.

Bill Maher - What’s up with that?

Maher noted that a recent Gallup poll shows an exponential increase in those who self-identify as LGBTQ and that people are allowed to ask, “What’s up with that?’

“It wasn’t that long ago when adults asked a kid ‘what do you want to be when you grow up?’,” he said. “They meant what profession.”

Alexander J.A. Cortes

arrogant man women listA man has enraged the internet by penning his 12 tips on “how to be a beautiful woman” including telling ladies they should shave and wear pink.

Alexander J.A. Cortes, from California, posted the list to Twitter, where it’s since gone viral, with people branding him “horrifying.”

Cortes, who describes himself as a trainer and a writer, titled the ridiculous list “How To Be A Beautiful Woman.”

He advises women to be thin, be able to cook, to have long hair and wear makeup, be “feminine and graceful,” be fashionable and also wear “pink and feminine colors.”

They should also shave — which “should go without saying” — and lastly they should “love men” and “listen to men.”

Ancient but Relevant Words on How to live.

1 Timothy 6 

All who are under the yoke of slavery should consider their masters worthy of full respect, so that God’s name and our teaching may not be slandered. Those who have believing masters should not show them disrespect just because they are fellow believers. Instead, they should serve them even better because their masters are dear to them as fellow believers and are devoted to the welfare[a] of their slaves.

False Teachers and the Love of Money

These are the things you are to teach and insist on.  If anyone teaches otherwise and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching,  they are conceited and understand nothing. They have an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions  and constant friction between people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.

But godliness with contentment is great gain.  For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.  But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.  Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.  For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

Why say, "Be Dangerous"

The idea is for people to think clearly and stand up for what you believe. It’s not necessarily only being dangerous against evil, it’s dangerous against wasting time, not taking care of your mind, body, spirit, money etc.

it’s dangerous against faulty beliefs, false perceptions and things that are not true.

Not necessarily “evil” although that is definitely a piece of it. My father disciplined me as a boy when I was missing the mark and I could have been better. It wasn’t simply when I broke the rules (ie evil)

Dangerous against foolishness and sloth etc.

What Do You Believe About Your Story?

At 54 years old, I still say, “I am about 10 years from my prime.” I have been saying that line for over 30 years. At 23 I was taken hostage at gunpoint. At 25 I was married. At 26, I became a father. At 33, I started my own business. At 41, I went through a bankruptcy. At 46, a divorce.
Now, at age 54, I still believe the main part of my story has yet to be written.

What you believe about your story will determine how you act moving forward. If you think your story has already been written and you are “sliding into home plate,” well, you will act that way.

You are created in His image

The ideas and words you speak have value.

I was reading my Bible one morning and came across this verse:

“And the Word became flesh. . . . .”
John 1:14

20 Warnings in Washington’s Farewell Address

Our founding fathers fought a bloody revolutionary war to give us the opportunity to live free. They had first hand knowledge of the tyranny and slavery set up by the King of England.

In fact, the King referred to Americans as "His subject" or in other words slaves.

It is wise to heed the words of our first President and the commander who led our troops to victory over tyranny. Also, remember Ben Franklin's response when asked what form of government we created. His reply, "A Republic. If you can keep it." Ronald Reagan said "Freedom is never more than one generation from extinction"

Good, strong and dangerous men and women are needed more than ever to protect and defend all that is good and right in the world.

Action

"I prayed for twenty years but received no answer until I prayed with my legs." [Abolitionist, author, and runaway slave Frederick Douglass on taking action.]

True belief is proven with action. It seems to me, that most hide behind laziness, cowardice or both. What you believe, you will do. Whether you believe it or not, you are the writer, director and actor in your own movie. Move to center stage and take action today!
