Do you bother to “unsubscribe” from “junk” and other unsolicited “emails?   I generally just hit delete.

Despite the title, I promise absolutely no politics, no political diatribes of any kind in this commentary. Just some Chimes of Freedom.   You ask then how a discussion of Freedom involves none of the above. Well. Read on. You be the judge.   I planned to purchase an iPad in the Spring. Shelly enjoys hers. Jonathan has had several, one repurposed to his sister; even mom has one. My personal tekkie aka my son, Jonathan, perhaps frustrated at my procrastination, gifted his...
