  • The Christmas Blues

    The other day I was having trouble with my computer and I started talking to it! Just as if it could really understand me!  (And yes, I know about Siri and Echo and Alexa, but they just pretend to talk to you).

    Anyway, there I was talking to my computer, saying things like, “Oh Come ON!” Or ,“What is wrong with you now?” As if the computer would go faster or even answer my frustrated question.  But, looking back I realize, I talk to a lot of inanimate objects!  You probably do too.

  • Nailed it!

    When I was a kid, I thought a nail was just a nail. You know, if you’ve seen one nail, you’ve seen them all.  I am still a little that way. I mean, does it matter when you are hanging a picture what kind of nail you use?  Nobody is going to see it anyway.

    As long as I can remember, I’ve been celebrating Thanksgiving with my family.  As a kid, I remember going to my grandparents and sitting at the kids table.  I remember that Pop-Pop’s prayers always seemed way too long.

Early on, I learned about the canals on Mars, about Saturn’s rings, about comets and asteroids and more. Even now I can name the moons of Mars, Deimos and Phobos.  I remember searching out the big dipper and Orion’s belt just to see them
