In 2017, The New York Times disclosed the existence of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. The program, which was started in 2007, studies the mystifying encounters between military pilots and unidentified aerial vehicles.   The NYT reports..."Although Pentagon officials will not discuss the program, it appeared last month in a Senate committee report outlining spending on the nation’s intelligence agencies for the coming year. The report said the program, n...

I was taught that if you shake someone's hand on a deal, it's done. You honor it because you just gave your word. Over the years I've been burned, unfortunately, by others who don't believe in it and seek to take advantage of every situation.   Then along comes this story that renews my faith...just a little bit:) A Wisconsin man made good on a 28-year-old handshake promise and split his $22 million Powerball jackpot with his longtime buddy.   Thomas Cook won a $22 million Po...

In Tokyo, the Japanese baseball team Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks have replaced their fans with dancing robots. Over 20 robots danced to the team’s fight song on a podium in the otherwise empty stands.   Two different robots, including SoftBank’s humaniod robot ‘Pepper’ and others on four legs like a dog, performed a choreographed dance that is the Hawks’ fans tradition before games in the 40,000 capacity Fukuoka Dome.   Some of the robots wore Hawks caps and waved flags supporti...

With a mask on it's challenging to understand someone's feelings, reactions, age, etc.   Is the person smiling or scowling?   Are they chewing gum or trying to breath?   What if one of you has a hearing impairment?   So much of our personal interactions are based on seeing the other person's mouth. Without that I find myself staring at a peron's eyes and listening to the tone of their voice very intently.   And sometimes it hard to hear the other person. Try ordering an iced,...

This past week marked my Mom's 90th birthday. My sister and I were so happy we could see her. Until that point, no one was allowed in the assisted living center where she resides so it was a game time decision whether we could see her or not. Thankfully, we were good to go.   I asked her how old she thought she was but she did not know. When I told her she was 90, she looked at me with that incredulous look I remember growing up. Every time I did something she didn't approve...

My office has been back up and running for over a week now. It's feels somewhat normal because we are all there...of course with appropriate physical distancing, masks, wipes, sanitizer and a cool looking sign on our front door stating you must wear a mask when entering.   I missed the interaction, impromptu meetings between staff to discuss marketing issues The colloboration is priceless. Although, it is wierd to to have a company meeting on Zoom while we are all in the offi...

A client asked me if we could plan out the next 4 weeks of content for social media. The question actually stopped me in my tracks. With the pace of change running at lightning speed and emotions flowing in all directions I couldn't.   I told him that I felt comfortable only doing 1 maybe 2 weeks at a time right now. Although it's a bit more stressful, the amount of work we would need to do for 4 weeks; planning, creating and developing would most certainly be wasted because ...

Boy are we angry...having been out and about (don't worry, mask and gloves are on) I can tell you that people are angry. Apparently a lot of pent-up tension.   The drivers on the road are excessively agressive which is saying a lot around here. Retailers are getting screamed at in a plant store ?!? They are in a store which has beautiful flora and fauna and they are angry about the establishment running out of basil...   Doctors call these rage attacks; sudden, out-of-control...

After wiping off all my groceries, I'm not sure I like grapes that smell like baby wipes   Without looking online, I try to guess what's in the Amazon box that's delivered to my front porch seemingly every day   I wonder why I still have a land line. The only people that call want to sell me something.   I'm hoping landscapers learn there are electric mowers and blowers that don't require ear plugs   Didn't realize how much time I spent traveling for work, not sure where that...

Our lives have certainly changed. Neil said yesterday (among other things) in a comment to Fred's blog "You think this is bad . Think Pearl Harbor , Hiroshima , Berlin." I couldn't agree more.   I compare the present event to my personal 'incidents' and it pales in comparison. Not everything is cancelled. Here's the start of a list...   Sunshine     Spring Love Friendship Reading Barbequeing Napping Devotion Music Dancing Conversation Connecting Kindness Imagination Devotion ...
