A friend of mine, Gordon, used to joke with me about a previous car that I had when I lived in Texas. Paul. You really care about your car because you wash it once a year, whether it needs it or not! 🙂 ~Gordon And, quite honestly, that’s about the truth of the matter. I don’t really put any time or effort into washing my car. Generally, I let the rain take care of it. My idea of “green” cleaning…

Some psychologists say that about every 7 years, or so, our perspectives change. I rather thank that they’re changing all the while, but we notice quite a difference between the way that we thought 7 years ago and today, if we look back. Yesterday, I received an e-mail from the group that I will be traveling with to Cuba. In the attached PDF, they mentioned that it was usual, and expected, to give the people who posed for your pictures…

Growing up, I remember that there were certain veggies that I resolutely refused to eat, even if threatened with having to go to bed hungry. There were a few other items that I didn’t like, either. Chief among those other items was liver. Still, today, I’m not going near it! However, in an effort to “expand my horizons”, I tried some Brussels Sprouts while I was in NY.

As I get older, more and more of my friends, or acquaintances, are having different types of cancers, different phases of it, and their own personal battles of being faced with mortality. It was something that I never thought…

Well, not quite correct, prognosticators! They had issued a winter storm warning and predicted 5 – 8 inches of snow. Maybe they should have said 5/8 of an inch – then they wouldn’t have been so far off in this neck of the woods where we got just a tad bit more than a dusting, certainly less than 5/8 of an inch! However, you have to give the news reporters props for trying. I watched a news report this morning…

Just so that you won’t worry, I’ve already made my trip to Walmart for milk and bread! I’m all set. I imagine that tonight, the grocery stores will be full of folks trying to get ahead of the approaching winter “storm”. It’s certainly will be a storm for us if we get the expected 5 – 8 inches of snow. But, I’ve seen, frequently, those forecasts change rapidly from, say 5 – 8, to less than 2 or so. At…
