Last week I went on a business trip to Seattle. Flying time is 5 1/2 hours each way. I am not much for watching movies on a plane, so I always take a book or two for the flight. My son, Jon, was good enough to lend me "On Lower Frequencies, A Secret History of The City" by Erick Lyle. I finished it with time to spare, time that I spent re-reading selected parts on the return flight. It was that good!

I laughed, I cried, I laughed some more. I met unforgettable people, like Jorge the homeless ...
You have probably heard about this big “The Secret”, a book that was written by Rhonda Byrne and the rules (I’m not sure if they are call rules) that are being used and adapted by her and a group of people who are teaching others to use them?

"The Secret" is about how to use positive thinking to reinforce what you want in life. To use positive thinking to get what you want out of your life. This way of thinking I have known about for a while now, and I’m sure you have too.

After all,...

I read this book: Lucky, by Alice Sebold. Then I wrote a few thoughts in a BookCrossing journal entry. And now here I am, feeling like I want to say something more. I'm just not sure what.

Alice, I feel sorry for everything that's happened to you, but I don't feel sorry for you. Because if what you wrote in this book is true, then you handled it better than anyone could be expected to. Congratulations, you survived.

I feel like I should say more. Something about Lila. But I don't k...

Kiss Me Like A Stranger is Gene Wilder's memoir, with an emphasis on women and art.

Wife Gilda Radner gave him the title shortly before she died. He expresses confusion at what it means or where it came from, but the inspiration fairly obviously was their recent heated exchange. He angrily denounced her for treating strangers better than she treated him. She responded that he was the only one she could treat badly because he was her husband. Soon thereafter she decided if he ever wrote a boo...

I'm toying with an e-book called "How To Write And Publish Your Own eBook In As Little As 7 Days" by Joe Vitale and Jim Edwards. (If you need me to explain to you what the book is about, go find another blog to read.)

Aside from a lot of fluff to fill out the book and convince non-writers "Yes, you can really do this," the system comes down to:

Day 1) Brainstorm a topic
Day 2) Brainstorm everything you can think to say about the topic and take copious notes
Days 3-5) Write your butt off ...
Sometimes things happen and we wonder why. Till this very day I think about the strange night in Yokosuka and wonder why. Yokosuka, Japan was just another one of many port visits my Naval Warship made.

My friend Kevin had recently married and I was recently engaged. So, of course we wouldn't be expected to be found in the usual sailor places on this port visit. We hit the beach and decided to go to a family type place that served good pizza and rice wine.

Kevin was always good company. H...

Patience for a better today
"Patience for a better today"

Patience is heavier then a huge stone,
Patience is powerful then an explosion
Patience teaches, what is never been taught
Patience teaches, to toil without excuses
Patience teaches to learn, what is not known to us

Patience teaches us to forgive, Patience teaches us to forget
Patience teaches us to respect the experiences of others

Patience teaches to sit and think
Patience teaches us to sit an...
For some reason that I find hard to fathom, the recent news story about the Federal Court upholding Alabama's ban on dildo's got either little or no attention in the media. Thanks to the Federal Court, woman in Alabama no longer have the right to buy a sex toy. And if someone sells them a sex toy they can get up to a ten thousand dollar fine and a year in jail.

People are trying to kill us. Over three thousand people were lost at the World Trade Center during the 911 attack. And what are we d...

Despite the title, the story is rated U for Universal and its safe for everyone to read. This is the link to the story and ABC Tales the publisher were it can be viewed for free
I'm a fairly ordinary guy, but after two weeks of dating Triffy, things just didn't seem very ordinary anymore. I had taken a girl named Barbra to a drive in movie. Not sure if they still have drive in movies anymore today, but back in the 70's they still had a few drive in movies left in California along with the left over Chariots.

Barbra asked. “Would you get me some buttered pop corn and a Coke?”

With a smile, I said,”sure.”

I headed over to the pop corn stand and it was lust at fir...
Paul slid the third button from it's tight slit of her soft, pink, blouse. His heart was racing. She's never allowed it this far before. Fingers now touching, where they dared not before, Kay's heart was pounding as she felt his hands slide quickly down her blouse.

His hands were now firmly on her waist. She felt her blouse now open wide. Her eyes glanced down to watch his fingers undo her last blouse button. Boldly, he pulled her blouse upward, untucking it from her skirt.

She said...
The other day, my nephew asked. "Could you come to the mall with me and help me pick out some clothes for college?"





That really brought back memories. As I drove along the Interstate to the mall.





I said to my nephew. "Let me tell you about my own fashion experience and just what it really now means to me for someone to value my opinion on clothes."








It all started many years ago, when I got my first job after graduating high school. Every once in a while...
Did you ever make a decision, and then wondered if it was right? Sometimes fate gives you unexpected surprises when you least expect it.

At the time, I was kind of down in the dumps. I had just called off a year long engagement and I just didn't have that usual bubble.

We were about to head home, and then, something happened, that would at least prove fantastic for me. There was, lets say, a military threat to Thailand at the time, and an American US Naval presence was warranted.

We ...
