I’m sure you’ve heard the expression at least once in your life – or maybe you’ve even said it: “you don’t know jack squat about…” whatever it is (whomever) is going on about. If you haven’t heard that line, I’m here to tell you, it’s not a compliment so don’t go trying for it.
I’m also here to confess a hard truth. I don’t know jack…
Oh, I know some stuff. Enough about a little here and some there. I’m not completely ignorant about this and that and some of what’s happening over yonder.
But for the most part, unless it is going on right under my nose, I am pretty much unaware of it – whatever it IS.
I Don’t Know Jack!
- I don’t know anything about ISIS except they are bad people.
- I don’t know anything about GMOs except now we aren’t supposed to eat them?
- I don’t know why people keep ragging on the President when our country’s problems started before he got there (this one will be fun to explore!).
- I don’t know why there is still so much hate in the world.
- I don’t know why…
Okay, the point is, I don’t know JACK squat about a lot of stuff. And not just about current stuff that I should know more about, but old stuff, too.
This bugs me. I’m not stupid. I know this. My husband will tell you this. Heck, he’s told me this about a gazillion (yes, it’s a word…look it up) times and he is seriously smart. One of those smart people who doesn’t even know they are smart.
Oh, and this isn’t about me being smart. Or smarter. I just want to be better informed. I feel like I should. Those examples up there are just a few of the ways in which I’d like to be sharing to keep us all better informed. That is, after all, the whole darn point of this website.
Here’s to all of us getting to know JACK just a wee bit better as we work toward the betterment of all our lives – mind, body, and spirit.

Please Note: You may have noticed that I vamoosed rather quickly last week. I’ve had a bit of a rough go again with my condition. Since we can’t predict this thing, we simply work around it when we can. I had plans to work behind the scenes while not actively blogging for 3 or so days and that just didn’t happen. That said, I did manage to shave my head bald on Sunday – here’s a screen grab from the video: …and I’ll be working on getting that series of videos up ASAP. I’m still not 75% (my new 100%) and still learning what happens when I push too hard (you don’t want to know 😉 ) so bear with me. If I’m smart about it, I should be here and good to go again on Wednesday – right on schedule! 🙂
Have you ever done anything that seemed out of control (to others) but was actually quite in your control? (Yes, I’m working up to something here… 😉 )
