Things We Want But Can’t Have. Or Can We?

No. 1,586 The newspaper says that Pittsburgh is not likely to be selected by Amazon for the fabled HQ2.  Things looked promising when we were selected as one of 20 semi-finalists.  But the initial visit by the selection committee was a long time ago and there have been no follow-ups.  Meanwhile, chatter in the New […]

Becoming the on-line autodidact/addict.

No. 1,585 WARNING: SOME PEOPLE MIGHT CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING MUSINGS TO BE A SERMON.  YOU ARE FREE TO DISREGARD THE MESSAGE AT ANY TIME AND SWITCH OVER TO TWITTER. Autodidactism: self-education, self-teaching. I just read another post on how to stop wasting your life browsing on the internet. It contained a lot of good ideas, […]

House of Cards Returns Without Frank Underwood, But Not Really.

No. 1,585 He died, hated by everyone and especially by the wife whom he made President.

A Prayer for October 27, 2018: Bless My Enemies.

No. 1,579 Prayer for Blessing One’s Enemies Bless my enemies, O Lord. Even I bless them and do not curse them. Enemies have driven me into your embrace more than friends have.

Winning the Lottery

No. 1,578   We all knew that when we bought those Mega-Million tickets that the odds of winning were astronomical.  What we really bought (or at least those of us who are in touch with reality did) was the fun of being part of it all.  People standing in line are interviewed on TV with […]
