We saw Willie Nelson, an American icon, Monday night on a warm breezy night in an open southern field.  It was truly a vintage Americana experience with people sitting on blankets and lawn chairs along with us surrounded by friends in the cheap seats.  There was sweet marijuana in the air and cold beer in my hand.  It really doesn’t get any better than that.   Willie is a soon to be 87 year old self made Texas original and his two sons Lukas (the more talented)  and Micah are...

Some say that Valentines Day is a Hallmark Card day and, sad to say, to some extent it has been commercialized.   Nonetheless, it can and should be a special day on which to express love, devotion and affection to your special person.   St. Valentines Day is an annual festival celebrating romantic love, friendship and affection. And that’s just what I plan to do with Joanne, my life love and friend with whom I share those feelings!   I hope you all make this a special shari...

Cameras are everywhere and everyone has a camera! One of the secrets of capturing a great photo (or “snapshot”) is having one’s phone camera at the every ready for that special unexpected, once in a lifetime, photo opportunity.   On the other hand, don’t you dare give into the impulse to cross the line and do something questionable in a special unexpected, once in a lifetime, moment as there are cameras everywhere and Big Brother is watching!...

On October 3rd 1951 New York Giant baseball player Bobby Thomson hit a Home Run which is called “The Shot Heard ‘Round The World” to win the National League pennant against the Giants bitter rival Brooklyn Dodgers. Giant radio announcer Russ Hodges described The Shot in what is considered one of the best, if not the best, calls in sports history as follows: Listen to it by clicking here Many years later I had the opportunity to sit next to the famous Bobby Thomson (pictured)...

When I was young Edward R. Murrow was at the crest of his fame as a CBS broadcast journalist which started with his “This is London calling” reports during the Nazi Blitz in early World War II.   During the late 1940s and early 1950s our democracy was plagued by a “Red Scare”, based on the alleged growing influence of Communism. Senator Joseph McCarthy was a chief Red Baiting proponent and tormentor wielding such scare tactics and ruining many lives in his wake.   I remember...

Power is the ability to direct or influence the behavior of others. Over the course of my life I’ve observed and absorbed instances of others, big or small, wielding power over me. By small I mean ordinary every day people and by big I mean influential, rich or important people. Possibly the most interesting and telling observations involve ordinary everyday people who, when they realized they had momentary power over me, morphed into an alien person that I did not recognize,...

We have a friend who lost her husband in the last year.  She was a very good wife. She is a wonderful woman, mother and friend who has impressed me with her reaction to widowhood. After her initial period of loss and sadness she has picked herself up and reinvented herself in a unique way. She is good friends with Joanne and has taken to sharing new experiences she never had, for whatever the reason, during her marriage. How great is that!  At this writing she’s already up to...
