SEVEN WEEKS NO TV

NONE, ZERO, ZILCH!!!   Do I miss it?   The first week was hard.  I kept looking at the blank screen as though it would suddenly start working again. The last five weeks I don't miss it at all.  The last two weeks I feel freed of all that...

COME ON IN. tHE WATER IS FINE.

Went for my first real swim today.  In the midday sun.  No, I didn't get sunburnt.  I probably will in the next few days.    Last evening we still needed to give it some more shock. but before adding chemicals I waded around in the shallow end,...

YOUTH IN ASIA? WHAT'S SO WRONG?

  Why does everyone get so upset about this question. I love the beauty of Asain girls, especially the Chinese. No pointy, wolf-like faces there. Yet they know how to be vixens when it is called for. My first dream-woman was the dragon-lady in...

GOD BLESS THE LAZINESS FACTOR

  Laziness is what makes us study and be inventive. It needs to be tempered with just enough ambition to do the work to make the labor saving devices work. We live East of Eden where it is necessary to till the earth by the sweat of the brow, but...

WHAT I'VE BEEN DOING WITH MY RETIREMENT

For well over two years, I have been preoccupied with finding a way to cut the gasoline bill and the electric bill, wich also includes heat and air conditioning. I have always been interestested in ways to generate power, but it was only a casual...

Blindness, Neuresthenia, and the JOYS OF SELF ABUSE

INFRA-SOUND

We did a test in the Air Force. It was not official, just a group of students, with too much time on our hands. I'd read an article about how the Russians were messing around with infra sound and heard that Bell Laboratories had done something with it...

FATHER'S DAY, is It?

  Hey! That's really nice. We get a day, now and then. Grateful for it. And yet... I wonder.   Mothers day is different. Those we fathered, gather around and do things that she likes. They bring her presents, whether it is flowers or some...

SORTING Out JEALOUSY and ENVY

  Which is which? They should have separate meanings. But they are misused constantly and have become interchangeable.   Lets say you have a friend who is a natural at basketball. You would like to be as good as he is at that sport. Are...

MY FIRST HURRICANE

Hurricane season is here. It makes me remember my first one. I'd been through earthquakes, a tornado, forest fires. But I'd never seen a water spout or survived a hurricane. But this time I would be right in the middle and have to walk out of it. ...

Is The Government TRYING to Drive Us into Bankruptcy?

They couldn't do more if they were givning it their All-Out effort. Not one party, BOTH parties.  It's been going on for years. Should elected officials be held accountable for their actions? Not just at the ballot box, but in court? In a suit to...
