Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

So, as the pandemic continues, I cross paths with more things that annoy me . . . no, that’s too mild. It’s things that piss me off. Look, I spend a fair amount of time gently — and sometimes not-so-gently … Continue reading
It might be evident to some that I’ve consciously retreated from commenting on current affairs. Well, mostly. I’ll throw the odd jab here and there, but I don’t address specific topics, not even when those topics dominate the news and/or … Continue reading

The other day, I got a call. Normally, when I don’t recognize the number, I don’t answer the phone. However, for various reasons, these days I answer every call. It went something like this:
There is a lot of breath being expended on guns, gun control, and all associated issues, and all stemming from the shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Opinions abound. Heck, if you search this blog, you’ll find mine, including … Continue reading
You can easily find my opinions on guns, gun violence, gun control, and violence in general. As a rule, in every prior instance when I expressed my opinions, I was mad. No; mad is the wrong word. I was pissed. I … Continue reading
Cadillac Motors (January 1978 – August 1983) was a good learning ground for me. I’m not speaking about professional learning — engineering stuff and the like — although there was some of that as well. I’m referring to learning things … Continue reading
Depending on who you listen to, you have definite ideas as to what is wrong with health care in this country. Depending on who you listen to, you have definite ideas about who is to blame. Depending on who you … Continue reading
A received some feedback in relation to my answer to this question relating to the whole kneeling/sitting issue. A fireable offense? My answer was “no.” Others disagreed with my answer. So, who is right? I’m not a lawyer, but I will … Continue reading
There’s a brouhaha going on about some people kneeling or sitting during the playing of the National Anthem. I won’t go into the discussion about the “why” they are doing it as that merits its own post, but I do … Continue reading
That’s not unique, and yet . . . I get the feeling most people aren’t thinking about the things I think about or — if they are — they’re not thinking about them the same way. Let me get the … Continue reading
There seems to be a lot of stuff about statues and whether they should be taken down or left up. So much so that it encroaches into my blog browsing, what with everyone having an opinion. One of the blogs I … Continue reading
This is only 1,200 words. Why, even some Australians should manage to stick around to the end of it. As I mentioned before, photos appearing on Sunday with my thoughts are gathered and presented in THIS SmugMug Gallery. At the risk … Continue reading
. . . to facilitate hate, marginalize, oppress, and in general, make other people’s lives difficult if not unbearable. I don’t have to be a member of any one group to do most things. I mean, yes, unless I’m a … Continue reading
I started this post before the suicide bomber attacked children in Manchester, England. I took a few days off from blogging because — like most people these days — I feel the equivalent of battle fatigue and the attack put … Continue reading
