Learning not to be a sucker? Stupid internet starts off on the wrong foot. Or perhaps doesn’t have a fake leg to stand on. Many people request “guugle-it” whenever they require a quick fact. It used to be you had to look it up in the encyclopedia. Before that you just had to make up […]

Assvertizing

The best web host, as far as I know Advertising or commercials, same thing? Reely? I don’t know why I hate commercials so much. Maybe because I don’t like being interrupted watching a movie or golf. I have already written an article about how “playing thru” (golf playin-thru yucks) drives me crazy. My blog doesn’t […]

Paradise is my backyard

My lot is 1/5 of an acre. 1/3 of that is my backyard. That sounds small and it actually is. But, what if you had that all to yourself? Can you say “mancave”. That is what it is like for most of the year. And northern Virginia has the luxury of 4 seasons. During football […]

Knight, some nights

>Does it make you think? …Ali of thoughts Have you ever wondered what someone else was thinking? Mostly you look at them and their facial expression and you semi-immediatly know what they are thinking. You go to a fast food place with your kid and you look up at the menu and you look over […]

Comin’ out of the Chartroom #closet

Hey! Knucklehead…Close the door! The navy really was an adventure. I joined bootcamp on my 18th birthday. I had to get out of Memphis.

Made in China

…sold in the U.S.A Everybody buys the cheap stuff from China. But, what they don’t know is the cheap stuff won’t last for long. It’s called planned obsolescence.

Fooore!

…little birdies in one round of golf->A gander of gosling. Playing golf is fun. It is challenging and offers a lot of exercise. I mostly enjoy being partnered with others, it’s called ‘walking on’. When you get partnered with others whom you haven’t met makes it very interesting. Then I get to recycle my jokes […]

Hello

…remember me- >Photo from Washington Post Magazine story contest. “Hello?” she answered. “Hi, you probably don’t remember me, but”… replied in a raspy yet innocent tone. “We were in the fourth and fifth grade together.” “What time is it?” She answered. “Oh, I’m sorry, it’s nine-o’clock there I think. It’s four in the morning here […]

A Beautiful Awakening

…Wishing every-one the same- >Clouded river.    This morning was a beautiful awakening.  The glowing Sun was peaking over the sparkling prairie.  Dew drops in this morning to bead sprinkles on the clover.  The morning glory is climbing for joy.  I should also mention the chipper of a couple lovebirds outside my window.  For a […]

An Orchard where kindness grows

…hold the fertilizer- >A Jewish Settlement (World peace is possible). There is an urgent need for people to settle down and come to terms. The Republicans and Democrats can’t come to terms; neither can the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s nor the Capulet’s and Romeo’s family. The American athletes and sports teams owners are willing to throw […]
