Just Me

Don’t Give Them Clicks

Just thinking out loud. Clicks count. Data is the new form of currency and clicks can make people and groups more ‘popular’ and give them more visibility and power. When you run across an article about a hate group, right-wing politicians, and/or their latest...

Unconditional love

I know it is a trite phrase – unconditional love. So easy to throw into a conversation and everyone’s head nods to say they agree with how important it is. But I think sometimes we do not realize just how much our family and friends depend on that unconditional love....

What the World does not need now.

Dawn Wright: Bullet Points (What the World Does Not Need Now)

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...

Happy Birthday Tef!

This week my daughter Stephanie has one of those birthdays and I have been thinking what to give her. She and my son-in-law are not into ‘things’ so I try to come up with something different. I’ve been writing things about my childhood and life as a way to communicate...

Just too much hate

I have to admit I am angry. I am one of those “freaks” who you do not want sharing a bathroom with your daughter. I have worked a job essentially every day since I turned 16. I did all the things republicans preach you should do so that you are not a “leech” on...

Luisa Just thinking of you and hoping you are well. I'm flying straight and level - an old USAF term meaning nothing has changed since we last talked. Though my destination is still uncertain, at present I'm just looking out the window and trying to take things...

Multi-tasking or Polymathing?

For many years, my matrimonial partner told me too many times that men could not multi-task the way women do with ease. Over the years, I zeroed in on studies that debunked the whole idea of multi-tasking.  (e.g. http://alturl.com/g8n43 from NPR in 2008) Now...

Woodlawn and Mother’s Day 1961 in Birmingham

I just watched the trailer for the movie Woodlawn and it brought back some vivid memories. I played football for Banks High School in Birmingham in the 60’s. That’s me, #80, talking to my linebacker coach, Coach Taylor, during a game. Woodlawn was our arch-rival and I...
