In the summer of 1966, I was 18 years old, a recent high school graduate, and had just been hired by the U.S Forest Service to work as a fire fighter for the summer. I knew next to nothing about
In my lifetime, I have always enjoyed a drink or two at the end of the day. I don’t do it to get comatose, paralyzed, or even to forget. I just enjoy a drink that relaxes me so that I
If you think life may have taught you a few things now that you are a GEEZER, then maybe participating in a program called Elder Wisdom Circle is something you might want to try. After retirement, I wanted to give
Let me describe a little movie I found in a hidden niche the other day on the Netflix menu. The name of the film was The Circle and everything about it was just a bit different from your average movie.
So the great migration of the Clark’s from Cleveland, Ohio to Arizona came to an end in Phoenix. Keeping with the tradition of treating almost everything in our family as a secret, I have absolutely no idea why we decided

The new movie Kong: Skull Island is another in a long series of movies based on the original movie King Kong (the one where he scales the Empire State Building) made in 1933. I’m not going to worry about giving
I guess I am just in a funk. Ever since the election, I have had a problem focusing because every time I see Trump’s name I get agitated and then depressed. I regularly read another blog out of Boise, Idaho
