    Honorary Doctorates to be "conferred". Do we need honorary doctorates? Interesting list.

    I read in two biographies of Benjamin Franklin that said he had Honorary Doctorates and often insisted upon be called Dr. Franklin. He was a highly respected scientist (although not trained) and it appears people (professionals, royalty & common men) would call him Dr. Franklin even though he...

    I remember how I learned to drive a stick shift in 1966.

    Looking back I was lucky to learn stick on my mom's 1961 MGA; 1600cc, short throw, wire wheels, 3/4 race cam in British Racing Green. We found out later that a lot of the car, front /rear fenders (flared for wide racing tires), doors, bonnet and boot lid were fiber glass. It reminded me of a...

    Inspirations and Favorite Guitarists

    Happy St. Patrick's Day !!!!!

    First, Happy St Pattys Day. I loved Ireland. A great place to visit. People are wonderful and they have Chinese restaurants too. Only 6 hours from the East Coast to Dublin. And Dublin is such a walk-able city. Once I drank Guinness in Ireland I have never drank another one in the USA. Those in...

    Close to Medicare Age? Worth a Read...

    Last time I read any stats on Medicare Advantage plans was they were about 30% of total Medicare. That was about 3 years ago so maybe all those damn TV ads have sold more retirees. You got to do your research. Those damn plans are tiered just like regular commercial insurance plans. Managed...

    For bird lovers.

    I'd loan you my cat but hes dead now. Hell of a Cardinal killer and they are, to my understanding, tree feeders not ground feeders, normally. But son of a gun he'd get 'em. I'd see red feathers under the tree they sat in. Then another set would move in. Damn, gone. He was good. Real good...

    This mentality is why the world SUCKS!

    Historical note: It used to be the Japanese business model. Until they got good. Real good. How many Japanese products do we own?
