Hatred
Disappointingly, I read now of hate crimes being perpetrated against Muslims and Muslim institutions. Mosques being burned.  Dead pigs left in in mosque doorways.  Muslims (or people who appear to be Muslim) being beaten.  Attacked for the religion they pra...

On Monetization
I have never tried to monetize my blog.  Purposely.  In all honesty, there is a page on my blog where one can purchase prints of photographs I have taken, and it may soon be possible to purchase original Art, also by me, on another separate page, but these ...
I have never tried to monetize my blog. Purposely. In all honesty, there is a page on my blog where one can purchase prints of photographs I have taken, and it may soon be possible to purchase original Art, also by me, on another separate page, but these pages aren't "monetization", per se.

A close call, to be sure.  I am glad, however, you have resisted the romance of drugs.
I almost died once. It would have been a stupid death, had it actually happened. I inhaled some mold spores while renovating my house. My epiglottis began to swell and it became difficult to breathe and swallow. At the hospit...

Thank you, Lou, for your comment. I, too, am extremely happy not to have begun a lifelong affair with that mistress, morphine. I am sure my life would have turned out very different than it has had I not resisted her seductive charms. :)

There's a new service in Chicagoland - UberRUSH. It's a Courier Service. A Package Delivery Service. A service which offers some retailers, in Chicago, the opportunity to offer Same Day Delivery to online shoppers. It's cool. Trendy. And I now drive for UberRUSH. I am not employed by Uber.

Always ask "Why"
By now, unless of course, you live under a rock, you're aware of the tragic happenings in Paris. Everyone has questions.  Everyone is concerned, worried, and many are just scared.  And, perhaps, rightfully so. The question I have about this attack, and abou...

Probably Not
People I care about have made it perfectly clear what their opinion is regarding ads, on my blog, unrelated to normal content. What I may do, instead, is make a better effort to display and sell my photos and paintings. And I'll make more and better photos ...

Introduction
Married for almost 36 years, three sons (and one daughter-in-law), and no grandkids, yet. Nor great-grandkids for my 85 year old mother - affectionately known to the entire free world as Grannie. My wife is the love of my life - without her I would have nothing. I do computers for a living and I love what I do. My only wish is that they would have known as much about ADD when I was a kid as they do now. I have recently taken up Art - at first, to strengthen my work as a photographer - but now, because I've discovered I love it. I paint as much as I can. The more I paint, the more I WANT to paint. But I try to sketch something every day. Because good drawing is important to good art.

I have purchased parts for my Chinese (Jonway YY250T) scooter at Absolutely Scooters and have always found Dave to be knowledgeable and ready to help. Do I wish he had better hours? Sure. Only because I'm sure his current Business Hours structure costs him customers, and I do truly want to see him succeed in his business. Do I wish he had a larger and fancier store? Sure. Only because the appearance of success oftentimes helps to breed success. Is the lack of comprehensive hours or a fancy location going to keep me away? Not on your life.

These guys are GREAT!!! Honest and willing to stand behind their work. My car has over 200, 000 miles on it and these guys will help me go for 200, 000 more. I trust them and their work implicitly.

My wife and I were lucky enough to be visiting friends on a weekend when Waterfire was being held. It was an amazing experience - visually stunning and aurally impressive. The Music and the Performance Art were moving, mesmerizing, just amazing. I'd never heard of Waterfire before - but I'll never forget what I saw, heard and felt. And if I can get back to Providence again, I pray the Waterfire will be on the agenda.
