Some days, you need a challenge. Okay, maybe not the kind I had at work, but nonetheless, a challenge. After I spent almost the entire day troubleshooting a problem due to a software upgrade, I needed to prove I could learn something new. For months (maybe a year) I'd put off learning the new WordPress... Continue Reading →
Hey, everyone. I think we’re long overdue for a Mystery Monday post. You may remember my post, Strange Coincidences, where I recount events in the life of Robert Lincoln, son of our sixteenth president. I’ll let you decide if you think today’s story is another strange coincidence. I’ve always been fascinated with the Titanic. The... Continue Reading →
Hey everyone. It's been a few weeks since I last posted here. Truthfully, I didn't intend for it to be that long. When I last checked in, I had been working from home for about a week. I had always wondered what that would be like. Now, I know. It's not all it's cracked up... Continue Reading →
Hey everyone. Sorry for going dark for a few days, but like many people in the USA and around the world, I'm adjusting to my "new normal." When I say new normal, I want to be clear this is only temporary. I've been working from home since last Wednesday. It's something I've wanted to do... Continue Reading →
Hey everyone. Check out this thought-provoking post from Don Massenzio.
As I write this, I’m sitting in my office beginning the fourth day of the isolation brought about by the COVID-19 (CoronaVirus) pandemic.

As Monday came along, our highly technological company struggled with overworked meeting servers and the inability to dial in. The whole working world had moved to this model and the infrastructure was not ready.
Now, four days in, my perspective on the ‘inconvenience’ of the restrictions on travel and gathering are helping me form a different perspective on what’s happening in the world.

Hey, everyone! I came across today’s Mystery Monday while searching for info on another story and found it intriguing. It’s one of those unsolved, yet unsolved mysteries. Some of you may have heard about Bobby Dunbar. Others haven’t. So, here goes. Bobby Dunbar was born in 1908, the oldest son of Percy and Lessie Dunbar... Continue Reading →
Hey, Everyone. Happy Friday the 13th! Thirteen is a number surrounded by superstition. While I come from a long line of superstitious people, I’m not one of them. I’ll purposely do things such as walk under a ladder, open an umbrella in the house, or cross a black cat’s path. I have a cousin who... Continue Reading →

Hey everyone. Today’s Mystery Monday post is a bit different. This is the first post regarding strange coincidences. I plan to write a few of them now and then. After all, coincidences are often mysterious. A few weeks ago, when I posted about Lincoln’s ghost, I was reminded of a story about his son, Robert... Continue Reading →
Hey, everyone. Happy first Friday of March. When Bob Dylan wrote The Times They Are a Changin, he spoke the truth. Changes are inevitable. Some good, others not so good. But change is in the air. We are moving from winter into spring (for which I am happy). When the weather permits, I enjoy sitting... Continue Reading →
