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 Magic of Communication

January 14, 2019

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, […]

Jesus’ Younger Brother

November 14, 2018

What if Jesus had a younger brother? Would Jesus have had to baby sit him when Peter, or was it Joseph, and Mary went out to shop or for dinner? What kind of role model might Jesus have been and how would he influence this younger brother? Some one asked me, today, if I would […]

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 […]

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/ […]

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 […]

There was nothing in particular that I needed at the world’s largest retailer; but, since I retired, trips to Wally World to look at the “Walmartians” is always good for some comic release. Besides I always feel pretty normal after seeing some of […]
