I often used the Pythagorean theorem and all of Euclidean formulas on my job for NASA and in life in general. My educational background led me to the use of many formulas from my studies in school. I scored the highest mathematics scores in the history of the school on the entrance exam to my high school, Jesuit High School of New Orleans. As I moved further into my educational career, I learned that deep mathematical theories and formulas lie at the heart of all of the hidden secrets in this life. Have you ever heard of THE BOOK OF NUMBERS in the bible?
Covfefe?? I write this to Bob Kuhn, the host of the Comedy Hour at the NEUTRAL GROUND Coffee House in New Orleans: LOL… you are too funny, Bob. I am coming tonight with some jokes for you and the crowd. I probably will not do any jokes on politics or Donald J. Trump. You know that I basically avoid such jokes because I never know what the audience will be like. I will come to the show with rings on my fingers and bells on my toes.
Check out @BrownUniversity’s Tweet and what Robert De Niro said about Donald Trump:
“This guy (Donald Trump) has sullied the presidency. He’s debased the presidency. It’s just beyond surreal what this guy has done,” De Niro told Rosanna Scotto on “Good Day New York.”
The actor has also called Trump “blatantly stupid” and “a punk,” comments he still stands by.
The Jacksonville Jaguars drafted Leonard Fournette of LSU in the 1st Round. I am now a Jacksonville fan. I hope that with Fournette on board that QB Blake Bortles can make the Jaguars competitive in the AFC South.
Yes, I “MOST DEF” jumped on board the band wagon with Leonard Fournette and the Jacksonville Jaguars since Friday’s draft. I am quickly slipping off of the New Orleans Saints’ band wagon. I do not think that New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton knows how to use his running backs. He will most likely sit newly-acquired Adrian Peterson on the bench behind Mark Ingram; and ruin Adrian’s career. I cannot take Payton’s running-back idiocy for another year.

I had a show on Tuesday night.
I will explain at some point this weekend why I did not make daiquiriis this weekend like I promised. It is a story that I need to tell. Also, I came on briefly to mention some of my thoughts about last weekend and Father’s Day. Meanwhile, I have to sign off for a while to TCB (Take Care of some Business). So, I will finish writing this introduction next time I sign on. Thank you!! UPDATE: By TCB I meant eat. Isn’t eating Taking Care of Business; and important “to boot”? On Father’s Day, someone cooked a big pot of seafood gumbo and potato salad; and I brought over ham and daiquiris. “Ooh La La”!! I wrote and recorded a song about this outstanding gumbo. I will add the audio clip here over the weekend.
I am still enjoying cherished memories from Father’s Day present and future. Like they say, some memories will last with you for a life time.
The picture below was taken five years ago while visiting my youngest daughter, Tiopol (center), and her family in Georgia. I even see Lil’ Potato (being held, back row) who was 1 year-old going on 34 years-old. My older grandchildren are grown now, in high school, working, driving, singing, doing well in sports, etc.
My second youngest grandchild, Dori, is on the far left. This is a rare photo of all 8 of my grandchildren together; plus my daughter, Tiopol (in the middle). It would be amazing to see them together now if I could get a current picture of them all. We were visiting Tiopol in Georgia for a Father’s Day vacation.
THEN, See Below: a taped, practice video (right below my first “live” video) which I am rehearsing before I attempt my next “live” video. Would you like to see how our editor looks and sounds? I plan to do a live video soon so that my readers can hear some of my latest thoughts. Today, I want to do my second Live Video on Facebook Live. However, firstly, I have to clear off my treadmill because I have been using it as a clothes hanger and closet. It is critical that I start walking on it, especially for at least 15-or-so minutes today. I could write a whole book on how much Easter food that I ate yesterday, including what they call better-than-sex cake. As soon as I finish walking on my treadmill, I will start writing a script for the video because I would enjoy to do another Live Video today or tomorrow. Any questions for me for my video? If you do not want to ask publicly on this post, you can write questions to me privately which I can then answer live.
St. Peter said that God is no respecter of persons.
Here is my first live video. I did not have a script prepared for my first video.
Here Below is a practice video of a script that I wrote preparing to
My brother, Carl Delery, asked me several questions recently which I will try to answer here. They are fine questions.
So, your dreams have beginnings middle and ends? Do you have actors play the parts and even roll the credits at the end? Are all your dreams theatrical productions or maybe some are game shows? If so, do you watch the game show dreams to the end, like the movie dreams, and announce winners? Boy, it sure sounds like you have fun in your dreams. You probably even get to surf through the productions. Do you have instant replay where you can cut and perfect the performances? What do you do if one of your actors get sick, do you have stand-ins? Wow, that’s a thought. Do you have stand-up comedy or musical performances? Man I’m soo intrigued! Who is your favorite performer, is she the redhead? Do you have Shakespeare plays also (To be, or not to be. That is the question.) Is ‘Lil Red’ in Lady McBeth? She must be in a lot of your dreams; King Kong, Pretty Baby, Paper Moon, or in your case Paper Mars (I’m gonna send my wife to Mars.)
I will begin answering Carl once I study his questions. TO BE CONTINUED…
The shroud of Turin (pictured below) is the only physical image
that was left for history (and that image is stamped in the very blood which Jesus shed from the cross). If the message that Jesus taught is spiritual, then photographs,films, audio tapes, etc. seem to be the opposite of how
he wanted to teach. Think of the miracle that it is, in
and of itself, that Jesus’ word has lived. His word is the
greatest recorded message in the history of the world. Yet,
it is just as alive and vibrant as it was when it flowed
off of his tongue. That is why I think the Lord did his
work before the advent of modern recording devices.
I welcome you to email Rev. Ferdinand if there is a
special request that you want us to put on the altar of the
Answer #1 to Carl:
Only in my dreams! It is getting late, and I may be falling asleep soon. What can possibly be waiting for me in my dreams? “Ferdie Werdie, where are you? Do you want to visit me in your dreams? I am waiting,” she says.

I saw a report this morning on the local news about how the trend of many people moving back to the Big Easy after Hurricane Katrina has changed. In my opinion, it is the high taxes, myriad fees and fines, run-away crime rate, government overbearance, inaccurate/incorrect traffic cameras, etc., etc. I dunno’. New Orleans has the highest taxes in the country which all add up to making citizens here feel like victims more than ever. This local government is not user friendly. It is literally totally user un-friendly.
There is an old Buddhist saying which reminds me of Donald Trump and his #minions. The Buddhists say, “No matter how much you wash a turd, it will not come clean.” Trump and his henchmen will never come clean even when their lies are exposed. We can see with our own eyes that the National Mall at Trump’s inauguration was nearly empty. Yet, he maintains to our faces that he could see millions of people that day from the platform on the Capitol steps. Trump is the historical definition of a turd.
Check out former Republican presidential candidate and resident nitwit Herman Cain’s tweet. See what that ignoramus said.
Oh my God! Oh my God!
Country singer Garth Brooks gave his explanation of an excellent way to look at the transfer to a new president in America.
In the presidential election cycle, I was actually weighing the option of possibly voting for Donald Trump for president until he refused to reveal his tax returns. That was a deal breaker for me. He wants to spend every other American’s tax money on a lot of ridiculous stuff, but he does not pay one penny to the IRS. What kind of alternate universe is that?
What is going on in Pittsburgh today? I am wondering! I heard on TV this morning and read a tweet that “the juice is loose, but business is booming in Pittsburgh.” Are they calling Ben Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown the three B’s the Better Business Bureau in Pittsburgh? Can Miami running back Jay Ajayi be the Juice? I dunno’! I asked the guy who posted the tweet, but he has not responded back yet.
I am wondering also how to explain something to one of my readers who sent a question. She asked me to explain the below quote in my last article about hearing the Lord’s voice. I will study the quote more deeply in order for me to give her an answer. I will write the answer here in my blog once I do an appropriate study.
I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
That is truly what the good Lord told me early this morning on this beautiful Christmas Eve morning. Yes, that is what I heard.
I tweeted the below attaBoy tweet to Samuel L. Jackson who graduated from Morehouse College in Atlanta. He is an Atlanta Falcons fan. I hide it from my Who Dat friends, but I am a closet Atlanta Falcons fan. I am from New Orleans, and love the New Orleans Saints when they are winning. However, I am an Atlanta fan too because they play such good football.
Scott Baio was correct in his prediction in the presidential election. Recently, he told Whoopi Goldberg so. This morning, I will search Twitter to see if Whoopi responded back to Scott yet. I want to also say here that Scott showed me and all of the other “doubters” that we were wrong about him and Donald Trump. They won the presidency. Meanwhile, I think that three million voters were screwed who put Hillary Clinton over the top in the popular vote. I am one who firmly believes that our process of electing the president needs to be reformed.
By the way, at one point I heard that Trump was going to give Scott a post in the administration. Did Trump give Scott something? I cannot remember.
On a different note, I think that this is an excellent picture of Beyonce.
WOW! Like Elvis Presley said, “I am ALL shook up.” I might write my own song soon about Beyonce.
I felt sorry for Hillary Clinton after Donald Trump won the election. I really thought that it was her turn to be president.
Dressed in that top in the picture below, what #inTheWorld did that girl think would happen? Come on, Man!
In the picture below, I am dedicating a fine tune on my trumpet for Hillary Clinton at my alumnus night at Jesuit High School. I think that between the Russians and an antiquated election system, Hillary was denied the presidency.
