I don't where these originated, I heard them from Deepak Chopra.   We could change the world with these questions. Especially Facebook.   1. Is it true? 2. Is it kind? 3. Is it necessary?     My darling wife, Sheilagh, said: "Then there will be no cat videos for you." Oh no, I said cat videos are necessary. I find them so soothing. You may prefer dog or baby videos. Just asking myself these questions has enabled me to stop myself from making comments on things and brought...

I knew if I wrote a blog about HRC, that it would be potentally polarizing. She brings up a lot of strong feelings in people. My reason for writing the blog becomes, then, more appropriate. I want to write about not caring what people think of me. Coco Chanel has a great quote which I used to adore: “I don't care what you think about me. I don't think about you at all.” However, since I recently discovered she was a Nazi sympathizer (how that is different from being a regula...

I just finished watching a documentary on PBS about the trees at the 9/11 Memorial and, once again, I am moved - inspired - invigorated with hope with all the good work that goes on that we know nothing about. It goes hand in hand with Hidden Figures (a narrative film) and Come From Away (Broadway Show), both of which should be mandatory viewing for everyone in the Universe for their ability to instill hope and inspiration. So much good in this world we can choose to see. The...

On this day in 1991, the World Wide Web was opened to the public. 1991. 26 years. No iPhones, Netflix, Amazon. No email, Macbooks, DVDs (which are now basically obsolete). No GOOGLE. No FACEBOOK. No TWITTER. No INSTAGRAM.   We have come a long way (baby). Like all big changes it has its "flaws," but its a tool to be used consciously. Though I have some nostalgia for encyclopedias, card catalogs and 16mm films, I am thrilled at all the opportunities for engagement that are n...

All this week on Facebook I've been posting different Youtube versions of Rodgers & Hammerstein's timely song from South Pacific, You Got To Be Carefully Taught. It caused quite a controversy in 1949, when the Broadway show opened, especially in my birth region. _______________ From Wikipedia: "You've Got to Be Carefully Taught" (sometimes "You've Got to Be Taught" or "Carefully Taught") is a show tune from the1949 Rodgers & Hammerstein musical, South Pacific. "You'v...

Did you know tht on the final copies of the Declaration of Independence, a woman's name appears? On January 18, 1777, Congress convened in Baltimore and ordered the second printing by Mary Katharine Goddard. This edition is outstanding as the only Declaration titled The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America, having been printed after New York had finally cast its vote to form the thirteenth state, and as the very first printing to publicly reveal the ...

"Your Turn," that is the name of the 10 min film you are encouraged to watch if you are chosen to be in the Jury select pool in New York State. It promotes the idea that you are doing a great service and the trials will be "fascinating." I'll leave it up to our litigating Gothamites to answer that one. For $40 a day, if you are not being paid be an employer. My Dad, 25 years ago in Gwinett County, GA, received $75 per day.   Today is Day 1 and we shall see what happens. I h...

This is all I have today: Maybe you will find it helpful. It always soothes me. I hope it soothes you.   “In America, anybody can be president.That's one of the risks you take.” ― Adlai E. Stevenson II...

I was reminded this week of all I have to be grateful for, don't worry I'm not going to list it all here. I saw a video of the Sanders family. Christina and Christopher met as teenagers, fell in love, got married and had five kids. Could be a perfect end of story, except Christina wanted to adopt another child. So they go through all the rigamaroll you need to, so you are eligible to adopt. The phone rings, its an emergency! Can they take in FOUR boys? Sure, they say and the...
