I am sure that many people have been watching the news lately and that one of the highest impact topics has been about our, the United States’, history of racial practices (that’s such an insufficient word: practices).

Regrets

March 13, 2020

“Regrets, I’ve had a fewbut then, again, too few to mention” How many times and from how many people have you heard these regrets: I wish I hadn’t worked so much I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends I wish I had […]

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.

And by the way, that, in itself, is an Inside Joke!   However, since you are here, why don’t you check out some of my other blogs: IT’s Lost Art of Software Engineering: https://softwareengineeringhandbook.wordpress.com/ […]

And for my next trick…

November 9, 2016

The American People elected a new President on November 8th 2016. The rumors and speculations about WHY they chose this one instead of any other candidate have only just begun. Some may say that is because the Silent Majority decided that they finally had a non-political choice and have been waiting for the chance to […]

Can’t Happen In America?

August 20, 2016

Can’t happen in America? Think about it.   Food for thought!  If it does happen, revolution can not be far behind.   Here’s a very scary thought………….. I had to take my vehicle to the mechanic the other day for service. The Service Manager, Pete, gave me a ride home and on the way he […]
