These Things Actually Work!

I grieve that I only speak English and have forgotten what little Spanish I once knew. I delight in these tools that actually work: translation the easy way! You can translate entire web pages or copy and paste selected text into your browser. Very cool. Oh, and Mac users, don’t forget Sherlock will translate for you too! It’s free on… Continue reading

Once Again!

Simply incredulous! The Bush administration is seeking to obtain the authority to delay the November election because of possible terrorist threats. No specifics are given, well, they never are–just words like bad, massive, etc. His administration loves colors too: red, orange! Reminds me of Pavlov’s dogs and bells. Show the color and the nation is supposed to salivate for the… Continue reading

Another Survey…

I actually think we all need to focus more on how we are alike and agree than how we differ.  But from time to time, it’s engaging to explore controversy.  Such explorations can enhance our critical thinking skills, help us explore meaningfulness, ourselves, and our values. I am putting the controversial survey results on the Continue reading… link below so… Continue reading

OK, I Admit it: I'm Weird…

Sex Machine

Is there really such a thing as a car that is indicative of a sex machine? Well, according to a news of the weird report I read a couple months back, at least one research firm thinks so. The firm sent out random surveys to thousands of men asking two simple questions: What car make do you drive? How often… Continue reading

This from Andrew Tobias…

Hmmm, this one caught my eye: Look for Osama to be produced during the democratic convention*. (And about time, too!) * WASHINGTON, July 8 – Osama bin Laden and his chief lieutenants, operating from hideouts suspected to be along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, are directing an al-Qaeda effort to launch an attack in the United States sometime this year, senior Bush… Continue reading

I Really Did … I Mean Really!

Years ago, in the early 80’s, I lived in Durham, NC. I loved it. One early summer evening I was returning home from Duke University on a road much like an interstate. A short and intense little thunderstorm left as quickly as it arrived. Durham had many rainbows for some reason, and a particularly vivid, large rainbow was visible in… Continue reading
