Puzzles and Presentations

I made a presentation yesterday afternoon and this morning I am still examining how I put that talk together. I worked on it for a week and when I arrived at the site I was carrying a heavy boom box and a tan bag loaded with my 5 different CD’s, books and about six or…

Bosses

I was just sitting here thinking of the bosses I have had in my life. I guess you might say that every person I ever worked for was, in a way, a boss. It was my job to keep them happy. Then if you wanted to stretch things you might say it was my job…

Out Our Window

Watching the squirrels recently was such a treat for wife Jean that I asked her to share with you what was going on. Here is her wonderful, in depth report. It was sad to read that P.T. Barnum’s Circus shut down, but on a much smaller scale we recently found a replacement right outside our…

Stupid Is As Stupid Does

A Dimmed Point of View

Asked to describe my point of view I might reply “Dimmed.”  There is a whole lot right now that is going on in this world and I haven’t a clue.  Now if you asked me what I thought about The Abortion Bill I would say I think we ought to pay it.  Or The Cambodian…

Squirrels

Squirrels climbed up under the hood of my Ford Escape and chewed up a mess of wires again. AAA sent out one of those long, long hydraulic flatbed rigs to move it to a repair shop. It looked like overkill to me.  Remember when they would use little rigs with chains or a friend could…
