Thanksgiving Day – 2017

I hate to think that I am going to start this Thanksgiving day with a rant, but yeah, that is what I am going to do.  I know this is supposed to be a day of giving thanks for all the good things we have in our life.  I am thankful, and I think we …

Bananas and Me

Perhaps you are wondering what I and bananas have in common. If so, then you have come to the right place to find out. But you will have to read it all, or skip to the end, to find out. I will give a hint, however. This is about my latest foray into the workplace. …

The Land of the Free?

I cannot help but wonder what the results would be if one conducted a man on the street interview and asked the question “Why is July 4th a holiday?”. How many would respond that it is Independence Day? How many would even know what Independence Day is and why we celebrate it. We are the …

Inauguration Day – 2017

Today Mr. Donald Trump transits from being President Elect to President.  Inauguration Day is always a historical event in this country, and today is no different.  Unfortunately there are too many people who are simply sore losers.  There are too many people who are incapable of putting partisanship aside and accepting the fact that Donald …

An Alligator Named Charlie

When I was a boy, I had a pet, an alligator named Charlie. I only had Charlie for a brief period, perhaps a month or two. My Mother and I had philosophical differences on the keeping of an alligator as a pet, and more specifically, where I housed said alligator. She found it objectionable to …

Our Nation’s Greatest Shame!

Previously I have written about the plight of homeless veterans. I have referred to this as our Nation’s shame and I have stated that the word homeless should never be used as an adjective to describe a veteran.

I am certain all are familiar with the popular definition of insanity.In case you are not, the Urban Dictionary defines insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
