Life in the Fifties (Author Unknown) Long ago and far away, in a land that time forgot, Before the days of Dylan, or the dawn of Camelot. There lived a race of innocents, and they were you and me, For Ike was in the White House in that land where we were born, Where navels […]
It has been an amazing thing to watch…the pivot of the Left from obscene insults to their “unity” theme. After 4 years of having been called everything from a racist to a Nazi to a homophobe…just to name a few of the more common slurs, we are supposed to just forget all that and pretend […]
Making the best of the times…celebrating Christmas at home with the Gormans
If you have spent any time on this site, you will have noticed that there are more than a few entries that relate to Israel and the history of the Jews. There is a page related to the history of America and how we came to be involved in the Middle East. There is also […]
Short trip and just a few pictures. In the moon pictures, if you look very closely you can also see a star…terribly difficult.

I am reading Bill O’Reilly’s book “Bold Fresh” and it reminded me that I have wanted to record some thoughts about some of the key events in my life. Well, maybe not so key, but at least things that I do remember….Things that made me what I am… ~1950 – Tonsils out. I think that […]
One hears a lot about how the United States of America has caused so much of the troubles in the Middle East and that we are to blame for the violence and chaos in that part of the world. It is a common refrain of the Leftist and other haters of America. As it turns […]
While I was working on the text of the US and the Middle east, I was confronted with the fact that there are a number of somewhat independent threads in history that connect with the main story I am trying to tell. I am reminded of the many independent streams that flow into the same […]
On 4/16/2019 I had the pleasure of attending a class to learn the basics of driving a Zamboni, which was a wonderful gift from my daughter. Below are some pictures taken there.
A bit of history as to how the whole thing started….and a bit more As I understand it, the history of the Vietnam War is rarely taught anymore in schools and when it is taught, the version told is slanted to the left hand side of politics. The protesters were driven by a higher sense […]
