Most of you know that I live in metropolitan DC.   Which means that bsides all the cameras the Feds have installed to spy on us, we have a plethora of traffic cameras.

Eat up- quickly!

No Gravatar

I’ll bet you won’t be surprised when I say I send articles to my friends and family.  But, you may be surprised to know I send them several times a day. Of course, I am positive it’s information they ABSOLUTELY have to know and have.  Well, I did that again last week.   But, this time I only sent it to my son, because I knew it could be very important to him.

An interesting day

No Gravatar

Today (when this was written) was not my normal sort of day.    After a late night celebration, I didn’t feel like (up to?) arising at my normal hour of 5 AM.  And, I had no client obligations until 10 AM.  So, I putzed around, proofread my blog before posting, went to St. Elmo’s for my coffee and friends (realizing that I left my coffee cup at a client’s facility yesterday, too), and prepared to relax and read my paper(s)….

They’re hiding everywhere!

No Gravatar

I have railed against lobbyists forever.   Even knowing that on at least one occasion, I might have been construed as one.   The difference is that no one was paying me to do what I did.  (I believed- no, I knew- we needed to have the US Government to pay the costs for dialysis for American citizens.)

An important anniversary

No Gravatar

Do you know what yesterday was?   It was the 200th anniversary of the penning of our national anthem.  Yup.  Around 9 AM on morning of the 14th of September 1814, just when the sun was coming up, Francis Scott Key saw the raising of the 15 stars and stripes up the Fort McHenry (Baltimore, MD) flagpole.

Oh, my G-d, it’s the NEWS!

No Gravatar

You know I read a few newspapers and a slew of journals and magazines.  And, I used to watch the network news.  When I was younger, it was Eric Sevaried, Walter Cronkite, John Chancellor, Howard K. Smith.  A while later it was Chuck Scarborough (who I first saw in Boston before he made New York screens).

Give ‘em your best shot!

No Gravatar

I now I’m an old fart.  But, that’s why Iam so dismayed.  I remember seeing people in Iron Lungs.  I remember kids who died of whooping cough.  I remember how devastating measles and  the mumps were  I remember when the Salk vaccine was the only thing between us and Polio- and then came the sugar cube and the Sabin vaccine.  There were new vaccinations for whooping cough (pertussis) and none yet for the mumps or the measles.

Data Overload? Or, Gimme More?

How we think and act is not something we developed on our own. No, our brains have evolved over the millennia to learn routes, to know where things are, etc. Things that until recently were the critical items in our lives.

Happy Birthday to ME!

No Gravatar

I was wondering what I would post today.   I thought I would mention my wonderful cousins, Roger and Lee (A’H), who made many of my days wonderful. Between games, music, walking, sloshing in the water, their memories are always a blessing to me.  I thought about mentioning my brother (Neil) and parents. I thought about my children and grandchild (Shosh, Shira, Dan, Matt, and ER).  There is not a day on this earth that I am not proud, honored, and amazed at the actions of my children.

Science Fiction- NOT!

Are you old enough to remember the movie by Steven Spielberg- Minority Report- starring Tom Cruise?  Or, perhaps you have read the Philip Dick story upon which it is based?
