L-R: Bill, Robert, Jim, and Paul It is really amazing, to me, how we can not see someone for a really long time, say about 30 years, and just pick right up where we left off. This weekend, I am in Akron, Ohio, doing my yearly visit. Thanks to Facebook, Jim saw my post about visiting and rallied the troops together so that we could have a small reunion. I didn’t go to high school with these guys, but did…

It’s the end of summer already. Here in the US, the summer season is usually demarcated by two holidays, one on either side of the summer. Memorial Day happens on the last Monday of May, and Labor Day, the first Monday in September. Rates go up for rental properties at the beach on Memorial Day and start their decline after Labor Day. Barbecue grills get cleaned off at the beginning of the season, and are cleaned and, for the most…

Sometimes you have to stand before the mirror and have a nice long look. I just came back from reading Tom’s blog post entitled: Focus. Tom, like me, does not have a television and he’s found life without it much more enjoyable, as have I.

Often times, I would read one of his post, attempt to absorb it, fail, have to come back, read again…

I have Facebook, Twitter, and a blog. I don’t have a Flickr account, but just keeping up with these things takes a lot of time. Recently, I accepted an invitation from someone to join Google Plus, or G+. I’ve been looking at it for several days, trying to get a handle on who it works. I finally think that I have the beginnings of an idea of how it works. With FB (Facebook), everyone is a ‘friend’. If you have…

Lately, I’ve been besieged by comment spam such as: Smack-dab what I was looinkg for-ty! Or If you’re lokiong to buy these articles make it way easier. All of them have the same callback URI, www.yahoo.com. All of them have different, fake e-mail addresses. All of them use a different fake name like: John, Barbi, or Geralyn, to name a few. I guess that as filters get better, so do spammers. The interesting thing is that there is no link…
