What is this?

Anybody besides me ever use one of these in college?  Or these? 

My Golden Six Pack on Veteran’s Day

On this Veterans Day, I am remembering my lost flock of Golden Boys of the Class of 1967; there are other members of the class of 67 who were also lost in Vietnam and who are missed, but these are very close friends. They are listed in order of their casualty...

There’s a story behind this photo too. I just need to be in the mood to tell it.

This photo of Hamilton Air Force Base, located across the Bay from San Francisco, was taken a few years before I got there, say about 10 or 15. Anyway, I had some fun there with my roommate William D Abraham. Abe, just like I did, loved Corvettes and we both got one...

Bring Me Men

This is a picture taken by my fiance’ Cyndy Long, in 1966. She was waiting for the cadet wing to march up the ramp on the way from the parade field to the Terrazzo . You can see the 17 spires of the Cadet Chapel (one each for the 12 apostles and the five chiefs of...

This is my fear: Libertarian and Green Party candidates taking votes from Hillary but not Trump!

Pondering the latest attack on Christians.

Not very long into the press coverage of the terrible tragedy in Oregon, the interview with the father of one of the survivors brought up the possibility that the gunman may have asked some of the victims if they were Christian. (I believe that has now been pretty...

One course down – one course not so good

As I've previously posted, I have been taking several MOOCs in an effort to keep my skills sharp and also learn new things. I just had two MOOCs end, one successfully and the other not so successfully. By that I mean I will earn a certificate of completion for one and...

What would our Founders Think?

I try to avoid getting too involved with political going's on, but the current debacle playing out in Washington D.C. just can't be avoided. I ran into this article on a new website I am beginning to follow and thought it worth sharing. Sort of sums up my feelings...
