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/ […]

Presidential History

April 28, 2017

From a Friend on Facebook (I hope he doesn’t mind…) The first president I remember led the allied forces in Europe to victory in WWII. He cautioned us against the military industrial complex. He built the American highway system to enable American to defend itself. The second gave his life for America. He read seven […]

Replacement Theory

April 16, 2017

There are some people who are fundamentally habitual in their nature.  These folks tend to repeat, focus on, become addicted to a behavior of one kind or another and they, then, tend not to let go. There are other folks who are much less habitual but I am not talking about them now. Habit driven […]

Common Sense Bill of Rights (from eMail)

April 14, 2017

This is probably the best e-mail I’ve seen in a long, long time. The following has been attributed to Lewis Napper, a Jackson, Mississippi computer programmer. He didn’t expect his essay — a tart 10-point list of “rights” Americans don’t have — to become an Internet legend. ——————————————————————————————– NEW PREAMBLE TO THE CONSTITUTION We the […]

Trump’s War

April 14, 2017

The question isn’t whether we will have a war instigated by Mr. Trump but When and with Whom? This post is brief because I want to have a conversation with whoever is willing to share your thoughts on whether you think he will Tweet us or insult someone without thinking into a war: With Whom […]

Dear Mr. Trump

February 17, 2017

I am not a pundit.  I am not a “politico”.  I am a US Citizen who voted in our recent (2016) Presidential Election. Mr. Trump (I refuse to call you President):  You are NOT a politician and many of us thought that could be a good thing but it turns out that you are an […]

The Internet of Things and Your Car

November 12, 2016

Use the car’s remote access to unlock the doors and get into the driver’s seat. Mount your cell phone on a device that has sensors to let it and your Car know that there is a GPS capable cell phone in the mount. Activate your GPS system and ask it to Navigate to an address […]

Drones and Shotguns

November 12, 2016

Drones are coming to their own recently and will become even more pervasive in the near future. Imagine a time when 30 to 50 pound packages will be carried by a drone from its Shipping / Warehouse Location to your front door. These drones will have systems that allow them to use a GPS Navigation […]

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 the 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 […]

All of a sudden – from eMail

October 31, 2016

Think about all of this in less than 8 years – just think about it!!! Before Obama, there was virtually no outlandish presence of Islam in America. All of a sudden, Islam is taught in schools. Christianity and the Bible are banned in schools. All of a sudden, we must allow prayer rugs everywhere and […]
