This is such a special time of year and Lady Linda and I are so thankful for our family. We are thankful that they live close and we can see our grandkids anytime we want to. We love just playing games with them and spending time with the whole family. I will share some photos of my birthday party on my Facebook page later this week.

We want to wish you and your families the Merriest of Christmases and a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Now for this week’s story:

As many of you know, I played basketball for my High School’s team. I loved playing basketball, so after I graduated I continued playing pick-up ball for many years. In these pick-up games I played with many of the kids that played for our local High School team (Millbrook, NY). Because of this I knew these young players were extremely good. However, I found out that Millbrook’s team not only had a losing record, but they were losing virtually every game.

It made no sense to me that they were losing virtually every game. As I told you earlier, these were really good players. Once I left high school I didn’t attend high school games. However, I decided I would go to a game to see why my young friends were always losing.

I got to the game early and deliberately sat on the bleachers directly behind the coach. This allowed me to hear what he was saying to the team. The point guard, I’ll call him David, was a friend I played pick-up ball with. Because of this I knew he was really good, but I also knew him as a person.

The game started and during the first half the team was doing really well. David was running the offense and the team was easily winning the game. Then the second half started with the coach (a man I didn’t know) approaching the bench and saying to me, “I hate basketball.” Well, obviously this is not a good sign. The coach is the leader of this team and if he tells them that he hates the game, it doesn’t exactly instill confidence.  I said nothing back to him. Let’s face it, what could I say, other than you’re an idiot.

(more…)

I hope that you all had an awesome Thanksgiving visiting with family and friends and eating too much. As I have told you, I have been speaking in front of our local school board (some of the speeches are on my Neal Brownell The Crazy Inventor YouTube channel). Since we just had Thanksgiving, I thought I would talk to you about my latest school board speech which was about, you guessed it, Thanksgiving. The title on YouTube for this speech is Grandfather Reveals Lies Schools Are Teaching About Thanksgiving to School Board.

I gave this speech off the top of my head since it was a story I have told often. I learned not too long ago that 15 years ago my son was taught in school that we celebrate Thanksgiving because we murdered people. I couldn’t believe it and then my grandson chimed in that he was taught that also. Well that is the Thanksgiving lie that the schools are teaching.

The true story is that human beings worked together, had a bountiful harvest and came together to celebrate this for a 3 day party. At the end of my speeches, I tell the school board that I know they are good people, but they need to teach the truth and as Abraham Lincoln said, come back to the principles of this great nation. We will welcome you back. To hear the whole speech, here’s the link – https://youtu.be/xTdnCPv5myg  The video is only 2 ½ minutes long.

As I told you I celebrated my 63rd birthday in November. The photo above is of my grandson Zayden and me playing Pieface. This new version has one hand that you can put whipped cream on and you need to push the button quickly enough so the other person gets the whipped cream in their face, not you. We had a lot of fun playing games and eating with the whole family.

The Doorway – To Finding Your Purpose In Life

What am I here for? This is perhaps the most common question people have asked since the beginning of time. What most people don’t understand is that no one sees the world the way you do. This makes your vision of the world unique to you—and only you. This means that you are the only one that can bring your vision to the world by using your special gift.

However, where do you even start to look for your unique gift? And how do you bring it to the world? The answers to these questions are inside The Doorway.

Welcome. I know I am  a week late, but as I have told you before, we are just a Mom and Pop that also has a great friend that is our tech guru. Sometimes it is hard to get everything done.

My second appearance on Thurman Greco’s Let’s Live! TV program is now on YouTube. Thank you Thurman for having Lady Linda and I on again and now your show can be seen across the world since you have a YouTube channel. Just go to  Let’s Live! With Thurman Greco, that is her YouTube channel and check it out.

We are still running our FREE giveaway of The Doorway To Finding Your Purpose In Life  through the holiday season.

Have an amazing Thanksgiving and I’ll be in touch at the beginning of December. I turned 63 yesterday and I am thankful for that and for my family.

As I have told you, I have been speaking in front of our local school board (some of the speeches are on my Neal Brownell The Crazy Inventor YouTube channel). The following is my speech to the school board on The Most Important Amendment:

I’m Neal Brownell The Crazy Inventor – Author, Speaker, Historian What’s the most important Constitutional Amendment?  History has the answer.

History reveals one civilization after another dominated by a select few. The average people had no say. Due to this, the history of mankind is slavery, torture, and terror. Many societies lasted  thousands of years  and still exist today…!!! No-one in these societies is allowed to say slavery is wrong, so slavery still exists right now.

(more…)

Welcome! I know it has been a century since I have been in touch. Life has been crazy. A few months back I found out my ten year old grandson is being taught that President Abraham Lincoln was one of the worst human beings that ever lived. He told me that he was taught that Lincoln owned slaves and should be removed from history. Rather than tell my grandkids, we sat down and looked it up. Obviously, Lincoln never had slaves, he hated slavery.


Due to the fact that I have started giving these school board speeches and am also talking to organizations and churches about speaking, I am going to only be blogging every two weeks for now. Each blog will contain one of the speeches that you will be able to use to teach your children.


Lady Linda and I had a return appearance on Let’s Live, hosted by our friend, Thurman Greco on October 1, 2021. This show is carried on Woodstock, NY cablevision, but Thurman also has a YouTube channel. The episode airs on YouTube on November 30, 2021 on Let’s Live with Thurman Greco – Guests Linda & Neal Brownell.


If anyone knows of any podcasts or TV shows that would be a good fit for The Doorway – To Finding Your Purpose In Life as well as teaching the uniqueness of America, please send the information to nealbrownellthecrazyinventor@gmail.com Also if you know of any organizations or churches that are looking for speakers, please contact us.


Below is my school board speech on defense against Brainwashing
:


I’m Neal Brownell The Crazy Inventor. Author of The Doorway -To Finding Your Purpose In Life.
My life and studies have taught me people are good. In fact, one of the most evil men who ever lived wrote, it’s a universal fact, people are good. Now, how do we use their goodness against them?

(more…)

Welcome. Lady Linda and I are on our way to vacation. Our friend Joey is taking care of our dog Chocolate and the house for the week. I wanted to get this message off to you before we left. The photo is a photo of me at Magic Wings with a butterfly on my nose. It was so much fun.

Our tech guru Shane, sent out an ad on Facebook so all our friends and followers could see the video where I, The Crazy Inventor and proud father and grandfather went in front of the school board. You can see how passionate I am about our children and their education. However, Facebook restricted our advertising and banned the video and threatened to throw us off completely. Unfortunately they banned it before I could read my hate mail. Shane thought he had made a big mistake, but I was thrilled to hear about the banning. It shows that even as small as we are at present, we can be effective and make a difference. For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, it is still active on YouTube at https://youtu.be/cZlWFmyY6z8 and it is also included in the video that I made for www.thedoorwaybook.com

When we return from vacation Lady Linda and I are going to contact organizations and groups, small and large so that I can teach about the greatest invention of all time. You don’t know what that is? Have your group contact Lady Linda or myself (our contact information is below) to schedule a talk! Now finally we have a story for you below.

Now for this week’s story:

I have been blessed to be asked to teach The Doorway – To Finding Your Purpose In Life to different classes. The first time Lady Linda and I were asked to teach the book we literally had nothing other than the book. We had no idea how we were going to go about teaching The Doorway and only three weeks to come up with a two hour class.

We finally decided on using a time line and highlighting three questions which were asked during my life. All three of these questions are inside The Doorway. One of them was asked by a teacher when I was eleven years old in 1969. The other two were asked in 1978 when I was a senior in high school. THE DOORWAY – TO FINDING YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE has many examples showing the reader how each and every one of us has value and has a unique gift to bring to the world. So Linda and I had to choose which examples to use for the class. We chose these three because they are stories that in one way or another I have direct knowledge of.

Early in the class I ask the three questions. I ask the students not to call out any answers. For now I just want them to think about what they think the answers may be. I tell them we will revisit the questions later in the class. In my blog on 06-23-21 I told you about one of the questions I ask in the class which happened in 1978 and it goes like this.

How do you feel about a boy who shows up to the basketball courts, gets on a team, then put his hands in his pockets and walks up and down the court while eveyone else plays?

When I ask the question, you can see the look of confusion on the students’ faces. Why would someone get on a team, then put their hands in their pockets and not play?

To learn more about the boy with his hands in his pockets and how he pertains to The Doorway – To Finding Your Purpose In Life, check out my 06-23-21 blog.

Today I want to explore another one of the questions I ask in our class. This one goes like this —

How do you feel about a student that is supposed to be in 7th grade, is only in 5th grade, and is doing work like this? I then show them blow-ups of this student’s workbook, which shows they are doing 1st grade work. I then ask them again how do you feel about this student? They are supposed to be in 7th grade, they are only in 5th grade and they are doing 1st grade work. How do you feel about this student?

When I ask the students this question you can see they don’t have a clue how they feel about this student.

That is all of the class that I am going to reveal at this time. The opportunity to show you that each and every one of us has value and has an amazing gift by teaching my classes is possible again. I look forward to seeing you at one of my classes in the future. If you would like to book a class or just schedule me for a talk, our contact information is listed below.

Once the class and I have explored all three of the main questions the class is built on, they realize for themselves that they too have value along with everyone else. They also realize for themselves that it is to their advantage to look for the things a person can do rather than what they can’t do.

This is only a small fraction of what I cover in my book The Doorway – To Finding Your Purpose In Life. I wrote this book in a way that you discover your INNER LIGHT for yourself.

You were made just the way you are for a reason. Many times, you will not know what that reason is for quite some time. So hang in there. When the time is right, you will be shown what your special gifts are and how you are going to use them.

The Doorway – To Finding Your Purpose In Life

What am I here for? This is perhaps the most common question people have asked since the beginning of time. What most people don’t understand is that no one sees the world the way you do. This makes your vision of the world unique to you—and only you. This means that you are the only one that can bring your vision to the world by using your special gift.

However, where do you even start to look for your unique gift? And how do you bring it to the world? The answers to these questions are inside The Doorway.

Welcome! We are finally back! I want to apologize for being out of touch for so long, but as I have told you in the past we are a Mom and Pop business. Even with our tech guru’s help, it is sometimes difficult to get to everything.  Then with a lot of the updates we have been making we were unable to get into the website for a couple of weeks. Thanks to Lady Linda making lots of phone calls and working with WordPress we are now able to access the website and let everyone know what is happening. There is a lot going on.

Our tech guru Shane moved to California. We are so excited for him. He credits us and The Doorway for giving him the kick in the butt to make the move. We miss seeing him, but we are obviously still working with him via telephone and email.

We have been working on a variation of our limited time offer for a FREE copy of The Doorway. We have tested and found that the subtitle that tested the best is To Finding Your Purpose In Life. Which is exactly what The Doorway is about, finding your purpose and bringing it to the world. We also have a FREE bonus entitled Make It Happen! that we are adding to the bonuses that you receive when you take advantage of our FREE offer for The Doorway.

As you know, I am passionate about the education of our children. They are the future of America/ the world. Some of the things that I have been hearing from some of the young men and women that I know, are extremely disturbing. Therefore I spoke in front of our school board on Tuesday, August 3. They were not happy with what I had to say, but all parents and guardians need to hear it. We filmed it and we have posted it on YouTube. Here is the link.  https://youtu.be/cZlWFmyY6z8 We are calling on all parents to join up and take our kids back.

As I said, a lot has been happening, we had delayed the posting of the school board video because we were also in the process of officially changing You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! to The Doorway – To Finding Your Purpose In Life. Erin at the Turning Mill worked on that for us, so as you can see we do have assistance in some areas, but the main responsibility lies on me and Lady Linda and sometimes we don’t have enough hats or hands to do it all.

We finally have a couple of books on hand with the new title so that we could film the new video for thedoorwaybook.com website (which you can now view) and we are also almost ready to release the school board video to many different organizations across the world.

There was so much news to share with you that we decided to wait until next week to share a story with you.

Lady Linda’s birthday was yesterday and we celebrated it with our grandson, Nathan, whose birthday was also yesterday – he turned 9 and the rest of the family. I wanted to share a photo with you of Lady Linda and our 9 year old grandson at their birthday celebration. We were finally able to get the technology to work .

Welcome. Hope everyone is well and enjoying their summer. Our tech guru Shane is working on an ad that includes a portion of the new video that I recorded for our video sales letter. For a limited time you can get The Doorway – To Embracing Your Inner Light for FREE along with other FREE bonuses. All I ask is that you pay shipping and handling. Keep an eye out for the ad on Facebook and Instagram.

Now for this week’s story:

This week’s story is a continuation of the discussion we started last week, regarding whether liberalism- socialism is new and enlightened. Last week we ended by asking you the question, Can you imagine a society where everyone does nothing?

Well I’m sure you know, no society can survive where everyone is doing nothing. So, to salvage this, the Socialist government takes over and tells the people they will work or they will die. The government has total control over everything. The individual owns nothing, and if they do not go along with what the government says, then the government takes things away. For instance, they can take away your health care, your home, your job, your kids, well let’s face it, they can take away everything including your life.

Right now the Chinese Communists (not the people) are harvesting organs from live people. (a Christian sect call Falun Gong) You see, the Chinese Communist-Socialists own these people’s organs, so they can take them any time they want. As an inventor all this sounds an awful lot like slavery.

(more…)

I hope that everyone had a wonderful 4th of July, celebrating the greatest nation that has ever existed – America. Did you see the video on YouTube where people spontaneously started singing the National Anthem in Walmart? It has gone viral and I will be sharing it on Facebook.

I am also posting two videos where parents are standing up against the school boards in regard to critical race theory. For those who don’t know what critical race theory is, to put it in a nutshell, the socialist school boards are teaching our children to not only hate one another, but to hate themselves. My book, The Doorway – To Embracing Your Inner Light shows you how valuable not only the people around you are, but how incredibly valuable you are. Look for these videos on my Facebook page. Please share them and stand up against hate.

We prepared and practiced our new video for our FREE offer of The Doorway – To Embracing Your Inner Light. For a few weeks that was our focus, but we finally finished it. Go to www.thedoorwaybook.com and check it out to get your FREE copy. I only ask that you pay for the shipping and handling which is only $9.95. There are also a number of FREE bonuses that you get when you reserve your FREE copy.

Now for this week’s story:

Is Liberalism-Socialism New and Enlightened?

Right now in history America and the world at large is at a crossroad. We are being taught that liberalism-socialism-communism-progressivism is a new and enlightened way to go? liberalism-socialism-communism-progressivism are all the same thing, just a different word. Right now they are calling themselves socialist, so to simplify things I will call it socialism in this blog, . As you know, I look at everything through the eyes of and inventor and through the lens of history (I have the aptitudes of an inventor). Just because someone tells me something is true does not make it true. I have to find out for myself.

I have also been looking for ways to show you what the truth is, and at the same time give you simple tools you can use to show others the truth.

This brings us to the first question, “Is Socialism new and enlightened?” In order to answer this question we have to ask more questions. First, if it is new, then that means it has never been tried before, so the next question is “Has Socialism ever been tried before?”

The answer is “YES”, Socialism has been tried many times.

The next question is when Socialism was tried how did their society run? In other words, what was their financial system and did this financial system lead to the average person having a good fulfilling life?

The answer is, in Socialism the government takes everyone’s money and puts it in a pool and then the money is distributed equally amongst the people. The government officials who distribute the money take the biggest share. This equality of finances does not extend to labor. The individual who works hard gets as much money as the person who does nothing.

This inequality of labor little by little causes the hard worker to do less and less. He / She starts realizing that they are going to get $100 if they work or if they do nothing, they will get $100. Because of this, eventually everybody in Socialism does nothing.

Can you imagine a society where everyone does nothing? Think about it for a moment. The people doing nothing are not producing electricity for your home. They are not producing food for you to eat. They are not picking up your garbage. Extend this doing nothing out to everything.

Next week we will continue discussing whether socialism is new and enlightened. I also know that I need to continue telling you about the class that Lady Linda and I teach using the concepts in The Doorway – To Embracing Your Inner Light.

The Doorway – To Embracing Your Inner Light

What am I here for? This is perhaps the most common question people have asked since the beginning of time. What most people don’t understand is that no one sees the world the way you do.

I apologize for being late with the blog, but as I have explained in previous blogs, being a Mom and Pop business, time gets away from us. This week we have been working on a new more inclusive video for our special offer for The Doorway – To Embracing Your Inner Light. As I believe I have told you, I hate the camera. I would rather teach a class to 10,000 students than do one video where I am looking at the camera. The people give me so much energy and the camera does not. Enjoy your weekend and your family. Lady Linda and I had such a wonderful time with our kids and grandkids this week. No special event, just spending time together. The photo above is our son David with our beautiful granddaughters, Mekhalyn on the left and Jasmyn on the right and our adorable grandson Eden. David won the Choice Award (something I believe Jasmyn came up with) for Most Active.

Now for this week’s story:

I have been blessed to be asked to teach The Doorway – To Embracing Your Inner Light! to different classes. The first time Lady Linda and I were ask to teach the book we literally had nothing other than the book. We had no idea how we were going to go about Embracing Our Inner Light with only three weeks to come up with a two hour class.

We finally decided on using a time line and highlighting three questions which were asked during my life. All three of these questions are inside The Doorway. One of them was asked by a teacher when I was eleven years old in 1969. The other two were asked in 1978 when I was a senior in high school. THE DOORWAY – TO EMBRACING YOUR INNER LIGHT has many examples showing the reader how each and every one of us has a beautiful light inside. So Linda and I had to choose which examples to use for the class. We chose these three because they are stories that in one way or another I have direct knowledge of.

Early in the class I ask the three questions. I ask the students not to call out any answers. For now I just want them to think about what they think the answers may be. I tell them we will revisit the questions later in the class. One of the questions I ask in the class happened in 1978 and it goes like this.

How do you feel about a boy who shows up to the basketball courts, gets on a team, then put his hands in his pockets and walks up and down the court while everyone else plays?

When I ask the question, you can see the look of confusion on the students’ faces. Why would someone get on a team, then put their hands in their pockets and not play?

The story I tell later about this player goes like this.

(more…)

Hello! Hope everyone is well. We had a great time last weekend with our kids and grandkids and our great-grandson who turned 2! I am working on a new video for our special offer website. If you haven’t seen the site yet, go to www.thedoorwaybook.com and you will see what an awesome job Shane and his crew have done for us.

Now to continue last week’s story:

Last week we ended by introducing you to two people by telling you their deeds.

First I introduced you to someone who cut taxes then implemented a national project and the economy and living standard of the people of the United States soared.

Next I introduced you to someone who told everyone if they follow them their lives would be better. They told everyone, I will do everything for you. The people followed them. They grabbed power and then started killing anyone they felt like killing.

Now to continue the story of how as a people, we are much closer than you think.

In order for you to understand who these people are, I need you to picture a circle with a line down the middle, splitting the circle in half vertically. One side of the circle is the right side, the other is the left. Right wing, left wing. Now point your index finger straight out and put them together in front of you. Here with your hands together the right wing and the left wing come together. Here the right wing and the left wing agree on almost everything.

Both say we should help people. Lift people. Help them to be better than they think they can be. Here the left and the right go out of their way to better people’s lives.

Now I want you to slowly separate your hands and start to draw a circle. As your hands get farther and farther apart the left and the right disagree on more and more things. Then you finally reach the bottom of this circle. Here the right wing and the left wing come together on almost everything again. Only here they are so radical they will murder anyone who doesn’t abide by their belief system.

We get so entrenched with what team we are on, we not only refuse to see the good the other team has, we also refuse to see the bad on our team.

The best way for me to show you this team attitude is for me to introduce you to the people I spoke about last week in this blog.
