Corporate Deaths -- When OLDSMOBILE Was No Longer Merry

Coroners Jury report RE: Oldsmobile, ruled that the Oldsmobile death was "by it's own hand, while wanting the balance of the mind."    Well, that was obvious.  Oldsmobile had been downplayed by its corporate father.  It was no longer merry.  In...

KIND HOURS in a YEAR OF HELL

  I remember him well. Bud Shealy, we called him. He died early this week and was buried yesterday. I didn't know about it in time, or I would have gone.   His room was a haven for me in my first year, my rat year of Military school. Hazing...

the MAGIC, UN LIMITED WORLD

FORGET EVERYTHING. I have made the leap. I know where we are and where we are going. It is funny, I knew all along but hadn't put it all together yet. Not in the RIGHT way. Now, I am sure. But that doesn't matter. Here we are and I have tremendous...

OH, NO! HALF WAY TROUGH SUMMER!!!

It will be fall before we know it. I still have the school kid's menality.  I guess I will never outgrow it.  The rest of the summer went by like lightening. Then the long dreaded school year.  How can I make the summer longer?

Why do google, youtube etc. want me to change my name?

They bombard me to please change my name to something more pronouncable.  then they argue with me over it, and do not let it go through.   I chose my name because i didn't want to be known as Thomas519874.  My name is fairly common and there are...
