Love Never Dies

Posted on 20 August 2009

Have you ever felt like someone from “the other side” is watching over you?  That is how I have always felt about my Grandmother, Madeline.  I know that there are a lot of non-believers and skeptics when it comes to this sort of thing, but I will assure you that sometimes there just aren’t explanations […]

Master Your World

Posted on 19 August 2009

Children have a simplicity and clarity of thought that can be both amusing and illuminating for adults.  Cognizant of the duality implicit in the human condition, they both reflect and explain philosophical issues in unexpected and, often, thought-provoking ways.   Several years ago, I was conversing with my great-nephew Nicholas, at the time seven or […]

Where No Man Has Gone Before

Posted on 18 August 2009

All it takes to skew my worldview is a brief perusal of the headlines in the media and on my browser’s home page.  Human nature is what it is and I have, to the best of my ability, steeled myself for each fresh new hell, each topsy-turvy ride on planet Earth.  But when my worldview […]

The “Male Rules”

Posted on 17 August 2009

  In relationships, women have historically fared better than their male counterparts in expressing or otherwise conveying boundaries and rules to govern the conduct of their spouses or significant others.  What follows is a man’s attempt (author unknown) to do the same:   At last a guy has taken the time to write this all […]

The Mystery of the Veiled Ring

Posted on 17 August 2009

Do you believe in Ghosts?  I do! There is a great deal of truth conveyed in the old adage “seeing is believing.”  And, having been visited by my grandmother about six years after she passed away made a believer out of me.  Since then, I’ve taken to reading ghost stories (true accounts) and have gone […]

It Was Forty Years Ago Today

Posted on 16 August 2009

Highways and byways clogged with streaming throngs, personnel and equipment “air-vac’d” via helicopter, emergency plans slapped into place.  A scene from disaster movie?  Breaking news of a natural or manmade catastrophe?  Neither.  This was Woodstock, a free (in more ways than one), three-day fete spanning the weekend of August 15th to August 18th, 1969 and […]

VJ Day: August 14th

Posted on 14 August 2009

Although August 14th is not a date that pops out on the calendar as a major holiday or anniversary, it marks a key turning point in our nation’s history: the anniversary of the unofficial surrender of Japan to the Allied Forces in 1945, the end of the long, bloody conflict known as World War II, […]

MegaWoosh: A MegaFraud

Posted on 13 August 2009

In a piece of marketing gimmickry that might even make staid Microsoft Corporation look hip, the MegaWoosh video – created, unbeknownst to most of its viewers, in conjunction with an advertising campaign – has created an enormous buzz across the Internet and has been dubbed perhaps the “greatest fake in the history of the Worldwide […]

Is Your Job Safe?

Posted on 13 August 2009

With the current economic crisis, more jobs are at risk of “going away” than in the past twenty-six years.  In attempting to save money and cut costs by reducing their workforces, employers are manufacturing reasons to push hardworking people out of their jobs.  In better times, people held jobs for far longer periods of time […]

UFO Over D.C.

Posted on 13 August 2009

Many UFO disbelievers have indicated that, if extraterrestrials wanted to make themselves known to the general public, they would simply land in a populous, well-known area – for instance, the lawn of the White House.  On July 12th, 1952, those skeptics nearly had their proof.   In this famous video, lights are silently moving in […]
