WHY FCC RULES I MUST BE A WILLING TARGET???

Every electronic thing I buy states clearly that I may not cause interference with anyone else's electronics, (BUT ON THE OTHERHAND) I must ACCEPT anyone else's interference with me?   Isn't this the same as saying that I must not wear a...

A MOMENT IN HISTORY _ Time for a quick change-over

You never know what will happen next, not with PEOPLE you don't. This won't sound much like me, but here comes the truth.  My family is white, they also lived in the south.  Their roots go back a long way in the south, but they had their own private...

SOUTH IS RACE FRIENDLY, NORTH IS NOT

In the 1950s, Driving from the south to the north, I was surprised at how unfiendly race relations become, the further north you go.   There are exceptions, of cource.  You can always find some hatred almost anywhere you look for it.  This made life...

FAY WRAY and the big Lugg

((a flight of fancy))   “HELLO!  I don’t recognize your number, whatever you are selling, I don’t want any.”   “Fay,  It’s me,  Frank.  Just wanted to touch bases.”   “Frank??  Which Frank, I know a thousand Franks! Maybe two...

'IN GOD WE TRVST!'

My God we are in so much trouble.  (Thanks to  burgundystblues for pointing our only hope left.  It is rather hard to do.)   I think every politico from 'Pesident'  to 'Disposal of dead animals,' takes an oath of office to protect  the...

WORK THROUGH JOY, Even Hitler got it right sometimes

I am not an apologist for Nazism, not even a little bit, but even the most twisted of minds sometimes got it right.  I'd heard of the work through joy program but only in the most negative of lights.   Elmer Davis or someone in the Office of War...

St. Patrick's Day: A BRUSH WITH THE LITTLE PEOPLE

Twas a lonly night at the Radio Station where I worked.  None of my small crowd of regular callers had checked in that night, a St. Pat's day some years ago.  No one to talk to at work where I was both Jock and Engineer from 8 pm to 12:05 signoff....

FRENCH VANILLA -- WONDERFUL TASTE

It seems to be much stronger than ordinary vanilla.  I wonder what it is about it.  Is it more concentrated. or aged?  or a special way of making it. So, Munkyman or anyone who knows, please tell me the answer.  What makes is so good?

SAVING ON SHAVING

There's no doubt about it.  Older razors were the best.  The newer disposables are whisker-yankers.  No matter how carefully I rense them as I shave, I have to use two razors per shave.  Or if I use a straight razor I will have to stop and strop it...

BEES are BUZZIN' by the DOZEN, All kinds of flowers blooming
