August 2014 – The Feng Shui Hoax

Posted on 29 July 2014

  About two weeks ago, I received an interesting email from a friend.  It indicated that something was to occur this August that happens only once every 823 years: the phenomena of having five Fridays, five Saturdays, and five Sundays in one month.  Allegedly based on the ancient Chinese art and science known as Feng […]

The Windows 8 Blues

Posted on 01 January 2014

  At Christmas this year, my children and grandchildren surprised me with a shiny new laptop.  What happened to my old laptop, a startling and embarrassing tale, is a story for another day.   Upon powering up my new chariot into cyberspace, I found myself thrust into unfamiliar and very uncomfortable territory, Windows 8.  Where […]

Emergency!!!

Posted on 27 August 2013

  Over the weekend, I had a nostalgic experience.  I happened to catch a little bit of an episode of Emergency!, the 1970s era television program that was the first to chronicle the exploits of two paramedics and a hospital’s emergency room staff.  Little did I realize that, just two days later, I would find […]

Preacher Paul

Posted on 24 June 2013

  Funerals are among the saddest moments that one experiences in life.  Yet, in many ways, they are truly a celebration of the life of the deceased and of those attending the services.  They provide an opportunity for both immediate and extended family members and friends to reconnect – frequently, with surprising results.   A […]

Two Weeks Notice!!!

Posted on 12 February 2013

  With a few Latin words, Pope Benedict XVI did what no Pope has done in almost 600 years – abdicate the Papacy!  His announcement sent shockwaves around the globe and sent the world atwitter (all puns intended) with speculation as to the reason for his sudden announcement and departure.   Most people who give notice […]

Computer Bug Got Ya Down?

Posted on 05 September 2012

  On Saturday of Labor Day weekend, my Dad – in his mid-eighties – called me to report a problem with his computer.  This is not an unusual occurrence, as my nieces and others from whom he solicits technical assistance can attest.  He told me that there was an icon-like image of what appeared to […]

Ode to Usama

Posted on 03 May 2012

  As we mark a year since Osama bin Laden was brought to justice, the following verses are apropos:   As we gather at ground zero to honor and  respect the heroes that gave it their all as the towers did fall and a wrong that won’t be forgiven   As America wept our flag […]

Security Doors and Spontaneous Human Combustion

Posted on 05 April 2012

  You may think the title of this post makes no sense.  But, follow along and you may be amused.   When I moved my office to its current building, I was intrigued by the security door at the top of the stairs leading to its second floor location.  During my visit to the building […]

Want a Good Laugh?

Posted on 24 February 2012

Human beings are an odd race.  Their clinical advancements have restored sight to the blind, replaced hearts in near-terminal cardiac patients, and cultured babies in test tubes.  Their lofty goals and scientific quests have taken them far beyond the moon, to view, map, and study distant galaxies through state-of-the-art instrumentation.  Their humanitarian souls have built […]

Going Greek

Posted on 06 January 2012

In the days before we’d inherited a mortgage, the hubby and I enjoyed traveling overseas.  Our first foray, buoyed on the pages of Tom Fowler’s The Magus, was to Greece. Our arrival in the Athens airport was not auspicious; two weeks earlier, terrorists had targeted that airport.  Too late to secure a refund, we assumed […]
