   Yes, we are in crazy times.   "Perspective" is a topic I'm always discussing...   There are those of you out there that are "rolling with the punches", (and yes you know who you are). Just another "adjustment" on the road of life. But,...

HaHa!Harvey Lloyd I remember seeing "Reefer Madness"in the 70's at the university student union weekly movie night for it's entertainment and comic relief value. It was shown in a double feature along with "The Rocky Horror Picture Show". I'm sure that you can imagine what a night that was. "Reefer Madness" was made in 1936.
Great to hear from you buddy!

Good to hear from you Ken Boddie. I heard a quote the other day that made me laugh;

"We finally had "Cinco de Mayo" coinciding with "Taco Tuesday" this year but a sickness named after a Mexican beer prevented us from celebrating it"

You are most welcome ;~)

I'm like you ;~)
Blessed to have worked in sales/business development ... which often had me out of the office (my preference)
Management responsibilities had me in the office ... but always looking outside ;~) feeling the sun on my face and the breeze

I was also blessed to have a beautiful dedicated office with large windows ;~)

Meet via Zoom, phone or in-person? Frank and I will be Zooming in the morning. There was a time when that statement would have drawn quizzical looks and, in all likelihood, some snide comments. No more. Today that company name has reached the...

Perhaps so, Edward, but the ‘newspad’ of Arthur C. Clark’s “2001: A Space Odyssey,” published in 1968, predated the iPad by 42 years. 🤔

@Ken Boddie, your comment reminds me of a scene in the Disney animated movie "The Incredibles". In one scene, the dad is holding a device that looks like and iPad and receiving a video message on it. That device was beyond anything we had ever seen and very futuristic. The movie was released in 2004. The iPad wasn't introduced until 2012. So, at least the concept and R&D for the iPad was already underway.

The ‘experts’ are in a modelling muddle. My response to this is one of empathy. You see, the ‘experts’ in medical science are for the most part entirely affiliated to the mechanistic bio-medical model – they know no better. This is the...

Homo Sapiens have not evolved at all from what I can see. The core is the same as cave-man days. Oh, we changed out our dress and prettied ourselves up, but nothing has changed since the days of beginnings.

I jokingly told a young acquaintance,

"What if this is simply the ultimate battle between the Cro-Magnon and neanderthal?"

For certainly what is happening is animalistic in nature.

Ah, this contagious coronavirus is all a concealed calamity. And, we all need celestial clemency to carry on our lives with comfort and contentment.

I love a good story, Judy, be it fact or fiction. Call me old fashioned, but that’s why I read and have so many books. Not only are they solidly and enduringly decorative but they are a constant reminder of their presence which often begs them to be re-read. Compared to the ease of online reading and the instant imagery of YouTube tales, books require you to cultivate your own individual and exclusive imagery. We can start the kiddies off with picture books as a hook, but weaning then slowly onto words on the page will help them develop imagination and the focus and patience to complete the task. Such endurance is sadly lacking in much of today’s online and SM engagement, whereby our attention spans are sadly deteriorating.
