One of my favorite pastimes or hobbies is to take pictures/record images and my new IPhone 10 has the best camera ever available to me. For instance, the other day I looked out the back door and observed vivid butterflies flitting through the flowers. I quickly grabbed my phone, ran out and clicked away. The best of those clicks is above.  To me, a very very beautiful Monarch Butterfly image.  I hope you find it as striking as I do!...

When I was young I suffered from severe youthful irresponsibility which was best exemplified by being habitually late. It’s a fact that I was an hour late to my PSAT test. As a consequence, I really hated myself for this characteristic which forced me to flip into a person who hates to be late. One of our biggest disagreements in our long and bountiful marriage is that Joanne doesn’t need to be early and I have to be. One of the consequential manifestations of this trait is t...

One of the best things about Summer is seeing the Lightning Bugs/Fire Flies dancing around in the air at dusk.  It is one of Nature’s greatest light shows. Apparently these marvels are winged beetles which use bioluminescence (when oxygen combines with calcium adenosine triphosphate and the chemical luciferin in the presence of luciferase a bioluminescent enzyme, light is produced) during twilight to attract mates or prey. Their fancy name is Lampyridae and maybe that’s becau...

Last Saturday we were the subject of a (hack) hoax. It started with Netflix denying access and reporting that too many others were using it. Joanne went to our computer to reach Netflix, but found an **Apple Warning Alert** Malicious Pornographic Spyware/Riskware Detected (pictured) on the computer screen.  As per the alert, she called for support and once "Support" was reached she called me in for support as I am the main user and more familiar with the computer. One of the ...

There is a unique pleasure in sharing something that you love with those you care for. Yes, it's better to give than receive, but even better when you share in the pleasure of the gift. I consider the feel good payoff to be psychic compensation.  The best kind of all!What goes around truly comes around!...

On Monday I received a number of calls on my cell phone from a number which I did not recognize and which the phone did not identify. As a practice, I normally do not respond to a number which is not in my phone's address book.However, the number kept calling and in deference to the callers's persistence and my curiosity I finally answered.I was rewarded by hearing a man say that my voicemail box was full and asking if I recognized his voice. I did not and there was an awkwar...

"Just do it" is the iconic Nike slogan and to me it is a very compelling and profound mantra. Every day I say it to myself (out loud) before I start my morning exercise regimen. It would be so easy to take a day off, but not if you tell yourself to "just do it". Nike was really onto something!Do you know the derivation of the slogan?...

Since I was young I always liked to "take pictures".  As such, we have walls of photo albums and other walls covered with "blowups". With the advent of the digital age and the iPhone camera, if anything, I have upped my game.  I believe that a key secret to taking memorable photographs is being in the moment, seeing a shot, and whipping out my iPhone to capture it.  Thus armed, creativity flows freely. What's more, with the availability of Instagram and Facebook I have platfo...

In these politically charged times I am amazed at the number of people who I truly like and respect who are diametrically opposed to my political point of view.   I think I have my feet on the ground and have a balanced point of view and am willing to listen to both sides. However, when I listen to some of my opposing view good friends I question my sanity. I think to myself,  Is this what the twilight zone is like? The cop out resort is not to discuss politics at dinner with...
