I’m not much of a snow person, really. I grew up in the deep south where it rarely ever snowed, and then only a lite “dusting” that closed everything down.
But, I’ve had the opportunity to see enough snow to be content. I lived in Illinois for a couple of years. It snowed a great deal there. Too much for… Continue reading
We were among those who first bought a Tesla Model S. I have written several times here at my blog about that ownership experience through the years. Bottom line: we loved the driving experience but found the build quality to be total crap.1 We sold the car after a few years.
In our opinion Elon Musk cared more about profitability… Continue reading
Don’t misunderstand. I absolutely believe this filth murdered his son, Paul, and his wife, Maggie, in cold blood.
I believe he is a liar and a manipulator of epic proportions.

I spent over 2 weeks in Japan back in 2006 and found the Japanese to be such warm and gracious people. So, today I have just updated my travel… Continue reading

The concert featured the work of pianist Denis Kozhukhin, and his encore was transcendent. That encore performance remains, to this day, the single most presentation of beauty I’ve ever… Continue reading
Below is a link to Beatrice Rana’s 2017 recording of JS Bach’s Goldberg Variations. I’ve been listening to them today. I’ve always found JS Bach’s music puts the energy in the world back in balance once again.
“BBC New Generation Artist Beatrice Rana sets her sights on Bach in this dignified reading of the Goldberg Variations. Treating every ornamentation and… Continue reading
No matter what one thinks of the idea of a monarchy in the 20th and 21st centuries, the notion of working every day for 70 years at the same job is more than my brain can fathom. Queen Elizabeth was Queen of England before I was even born, and just the reality of her no longer being Queen is hard… Continue reading
