Is the English Language -- Are Other Languages -- Doomed?

When I was a child, Mom would "nag" me if I made a mistake in my speech. I suppose she couldn't help it. She'd majored in English at Temple University, after all. But it didn't stop with my mom. I have became rather loquacious, as a result. Although imper

Do you still write? I mean, hand write a letter, in cursive, to the ones you love?

I have to admit, I cheated. I once wrote a letter to a family member, using the handwriting font I had installed from a disc of 500 'FANTASTIC' fonts. A long time back I used to get handwritten letters from my mother when I was at a trade school i

This article is about Sharing with friends and followers best practices.

I want to make an attempt at an apology for sharing certain YouTube videos with my friends on Facebook. I have noticed a recent video that was on a subject about global climate change and the rants of a man who likes to use colorful language to express him

Do You Allow Social Issues to Get to You?

I tend to be (as are many of you) an opinionated person. I fight against it. And, frankly, for the most part, I succeed. I succeed against mere opinion identifying who I am. We live in a time when many opinions, some abnormal, have gained ascendancy over

The Water Gushed from the Ceiling

Well I was in the living room. My wife wasn't far away when it happened. The water broke through the ceiling, gushing badly. I was so shocked, so depressed. So, not being the most informed householder, I turned to my wife and asked her if she knew where t

Do You Know Anyone Ruined Through Stock Purchases Made Before the Great Depression?

There's no better tree to "climb" than the family tree. Have you tried it? If you do, and you are the researcher, you will learn how to play detective. You will be surprised at every turn by what you find. To illustrate... In researching mine and some fr

I saw an Apple Maps van drive down our alley today.

If there were a sub-category listing 'REALITY' I would put this post in that category! I was tying down some rose vines using hemp rope in the backyard when I heard a vehicle driving down the alley going west. I turned around and noticed it was a

How many people can still remember Buster Brown shoes?

Standing in a grocery checkout line yesterday, while my wife was paying for her grocery items, the man behind us in line said something about Buster Brown and I told him I had no clue as to what he was talking about. He looked at me and said, "You are pr

Blog: Mental Health and Saving the Natural World

I often hear people talk about mental illness as a static condition. Despite the prevalence of misdiagnosis, the basis of the DSM and the dynamics of the human life-span, psychologists and laymen alike continue to confine every pour soul to be labeled as a

Looking out for the blind and elderly and disabled who have to use the sidewalks to get to their places in the city.

Lime bikes are all over Dallas. These bikes are to help people get around the city for a small price. The disadvantage of this idea is the fact that many of the bikes are being left along the sidewalks of the city. A recent news report indicated

When visitors come over to see us in our home, please leave your blue tooth in the car.

Our friend likes devices and has a cell phone, a galaxy phone and a blue tooth connected pair of ear buds so he can listen to Rush all day long. Rush, the radio guy who talks not the rock group Rush, that is a whole other subject. Anyway, it was like that

Imagine replacing your large house with a smaller one? Saving space and conseving energy is a good thing.

The standard lot size for a home in Dallas, TX is .24 acres. One forth of one single acre of land, with houses all in a row, those ticky tacky homes! Track houses is what they call them. Imagine if you will, for just a moment, if your current house were to

Changed our minds

A while back, I wrote a post about my husband and I possibly moving. Well, for the moment, we are staying where we are. Our lease has been renewed. And we'll probably just stay where we are for another year. We could potentially move, if we give a few mont

I am a down to earth guy. I like to work in my backyard garden.

I took the Cast Iron plants out of the house all except for one. I will keep that one in the house all year long because I like to look at it 24/7. But the other 3 and a vine had to go outside on the porch and that is because it's Springtime now and I thin
