They Worked 111 days of the last 365

September 28, 2019

Found in eMail: So many members of Congress are retiring in hopes of “locking-in” their future retirement payments. Currently, their monthly retirement checks are equal to their monthly salaries.

Ages and Birthdays

May 31, 2019

When I was younger, in my 50’s, I got to thinking about my age and, more importantly, my remaining Birthdays. There were fewer remaining than I had already had.

The Fast Lane: An Enigma

I get an idea about something to say. My mind translates that idea into words and I think about how or whether I am going to share this idea with anyone else. Usually, I start to formulate how I am going to express my idea to another and, if and when the right chance arises, […]

In my experience, Life is like […]

The Title of the book will be: “IT’s Lost Art of Software Engineering” and will contain much of what has been posted in my blog for the last few […]
