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 […]

Letter to the Boss

Cycling through Cuba

May 16, 2019

Very interesting perspective from a person who actually rode a bicycle through CUBA and really got to see what it is like…… As a 77 yr. old guy who has gone to Europe, Canada, Mexico and now Cuba for bicycle road trips,  I thought you might enjoy reading my report of my bike trip to […]

Are we still Free?

April 25, 2019

Have we become TOO Politically Correct or TOO Corrected Politically? Do the citizens of the United States have the right to choose their own destiny OR have we become Victims of our fear of confrontation?

Don’t Impeach

An Inside Joke

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 […]

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 […]
