My Fifteen Minutes QUALITY TIME: Reading Hard Books

Spring has a new gift for me. The drive to work with my eldest daughter (20). This morning I was trying to explain to her the Thomas Barnett book which divides the globe into the Core-Gap countries. The core being responsible for globalism and modern trends of all kinds (USA, France, England, Japan,... Sign in to see full entry.

Pretty good news on the home front. My Friday-Saturday restaurant gig is going good. Business is up and the owner is happy. I learned "No Reply" today. Caitlin and i were out at GraysLake walking five miles, and on the way back we were listening to Sirius60's channel. Every once in a while i have... Sign in to see full entry.

Reviewing Technology in "Enemy of the State" 1998.

We cannot tell exactly what will be possible technologically, ten years from now, can we? We can, however, look back on the past ten. One day at the staffer, our media specialist said that in three years, half of us would be doing half or more of our shopping online. I still don't and that was ten,... Sign in to see full entry.

Family Update, Parttime Jobs, Summer School & Internships

I have to admit to a degree of glee. My babies are working on their studies right up to the end of the semester -- not far away. Summer is rushing on, the school year is ending peaceably, both daughters have the same exact parttime jobs as last year, and are signed up for summer school. I have... Sign in to see full entry.

"...strange how you never know; we'd both gotten what we'd asked for such a long, long time ago..." -Harry Chapin I have seemed to drift for several weeks from the political scene, not having posted re POTUS for two weeks. Not that I don't care, but he seems to have the f-ing world in the palm of... Sign in to see full entry.

Fifty-nine Winters

I joke with my students when they ask how old I am, where I was born, etc. I say, in Winterset, Iowa, I was born on December 15th, 1950 in the middle of a cold winter storm. I jumped off the birthing table, ran outside to shovel the sidewalks, ran back inside, jumped back up into bed with Mama,... Sign in to see full entry.

Whew! What a Rush!

Proof that Mr. Limbaugh has himself and his own best interests in mind (way) before the interests of the GOP: He loves it! He's flying high. His adrenalin has returned without the drugs. It's such a rush. We don't need much proof that he is a narcissist; well most Americans are. But look at the good... Sign in to see full entry.

Obama as Superman

I only got a few minutes of news tonight. My daughter came in from work and sent me on errands. It seems that today's thunderstorm had cut power to the neighborhood at some point, rendering one fuse dislodged.
