Proximacy is the new Intimacy

March 25, 2020

Proximacy is the new Intimacy. Our COVID-19 shutdown response is creating a desire to get closer to people simply because we can’t. A neighbor and good friend of ours called and asked if they could come over to stand outside and socialize from six feet away. Of course, we said yes and put our coats […]

The Corvette. A man named Tom Nicholson posted on his Facebook account the sports car that he had just bought and how a man approached and told him that the money used to buy this car could’ve fed thousands of less fortunate people.

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. They hope to freeze their retirement as it stands. I’m with Trump on this one. Trump is asking everyone to forward this Email to a minimum […]

Drafting Guys Over 60

June 7, 2019

I am over 60 and the Armed Forces thinks I’m too old to track down terrorists.  You can’t be older than 42 to join the military.  They’ve got the whole thing ass-backwards. Instead of sending 18-year old’s off to fight, they ought to take us old guys.  You shouldn’t be able to join a military […]

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.

Don’t Impeach

January 22, 2018

Don’t Impeach Donald Trump. Don’t Retweet his Tweets; Don’t bother Reading his Tweets. Don’t debate the accuracy of his latest Blurtings. Don’t give him ANY Press Coverage. If we ignore him, maybe he will just Go Away!

January 12, 2018

Andy Weir is a software engineer / programmer who wrote a book: “The Martian” as his first novel. At the end of this book, he wrote: “… human being has a basic instinct to help each other out. It might not seem that way sometimes, but it’s true. If a hiker gets lost in the […]

Those Annoying Neighbors

November 25, 2017

You have them, too. Those annoying neighbors who always put their Holiday decorations out one day before you do and they almost always look spectacular. The neighbors with their yards that are immaculate and always look like something out of Homes and Gardens. And, their kids who are always well dressed, well mannered, and well […]

An Inside Joke

June 18, 2017

Do you know what an Inside Joke is? It’s a joke that only works inside my head!  That’s an Inside Joke. 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/ […]
