Is our food supply safe?

No. It seems to me that when there is a food poisoning outbreak it is the food company itself which reports the problem. it is not a government agency that discovers the problem. If that is the case, an unscrupulous provider could purpodely fail to report a problem, or if evil, could [...]

Wrapping presents is a waste

Father’s day is over and I received some very thoughtful and useful gifts. All of them were gift wrapped. It took me approximately ten seconds to remove the gift wrapping, and five seconds to throw it all in the trash. I can’t even remember what it looked like. It seems [...]

It must be the Washington air

What happens to these politicians when they get to Washington, DC. They all seem reasonably intelligent before they get there. They graduate from fancy schools, but after they arrive there, they are completely different. They seem like they never went to school, never balanced a check book, and do not have any [...]

Why do we have graduation exercises?

Another graduation. More complaints about the decorum of the students. Do away with the graduation. Mail the diploma. Then the parents won’t complain, the students won’t be reprimanded and the faculty and administrators won’t waste their time.

Happy to be unhappy

One main topic of older persons conversations is medical illness. It seems that if they don’t have a medical ailment to complain about, they are unhappy. The pain and inconvenience of the ailment are of lesser importance than the happiness of complaining about it.

No. It seems to me that when there is a food poisoning outbreak it is the food company itself which reports the problem. it is not a government agency that discovers the problem. If that is the case, an unscrupulous provider could purpodely fail to report a problem, or if evil, could even purposely spread some nefarious agent. That is what happens in the new book, “The Ovary Wars.” The US is possibly economically destroyed.

Father’s day is over and I received some very thoughtful and useful gifts. All of them were gift wrapped. It took me approximately ten seconds to remove the gift wrapping, and five seconds to throw it all in the trash. I can’t even remember what it looked like. It seems like a waste of money, time and energy to bother to gift wrap anything. A small bag from the grocery stores would have sufficed.

They graduate from fancy schools, but after they arrive there, they are completely different. They seem like they never went to school, never balanced a check book, and do not have any common sense. It is also not a rare occurrence.

The year of the woman politician


The Chinese have a revolving cycle of a year dedicated to a particular animal. In the United States 2010 seems to be the year of the woman politician. Look at the two important races in California, the race in Nevada, Arkansas, etc. This truly is the year of the woman politician.

Who has the Alzheimers?


The relationships between senior married partners is sometimes amazing. The other day I overheard a man say that he had to keep his cell phone on because his wife was in the early stages of Alzheimers disease. A short time later the wife appeared and secretly asked the husbands companion how her husband was doing because he was in the early stages of Alzheimers disease. companion

It’s great to have some aches and pains.


Old age causes neck pains, back pains, shoulder pains, etc. There may be a little trouble breathing, or a problem with a hiatal hernia or many other varied ailments. However, it,s great to have them and have those ailments remind us that we are alive. We could be dead.

Is a CEO entitled to earn $300 million dollars?


Yes, but only if it’s his own company. Publicly traded company CEOs should not be allowed to earn such high salaries. It’s only because of the incompetence and laziness of the directors on the boards that the CEOs receive high such salaries. Would those same CEOs work for half those Wall Street salaries? I believe they would.

Old age communities. Who’s going to save you?


I’m not so sure abouit those retirement or age restricted communities. If I suddenly keel over, I want somebody young eough and strong enough to lift me up and rescue me. I don’t want a bunch of old people standing there, and marveling as I take my last breath. That may be the only entertainment they had that day.

Another athlete’s contract. It’s not about the money.


When most people say they are suing for the principle of the thing, and it’s not about the money, it’s almost certainly about the money. When athletes sign a contract for a few million dollars more than their last one, and certainly for more than they need, I believe it’s not about the money. It’s about their pride, and making more than their fellow athletes. It’s just another way of keeping score.

The dog ate my homework.


The new excuses center around addiction. Now when people make errors in judgment they attribute it to addiction–whether it be alcohol, drugs,etc. The immediate cure-all is to go into rehab and hope all is forgiven, or at least forgotten. It seems to me that in many cases, the addiction excuse is just as plausible as the dog ate my homework.

Who cares about gas prices?


From what I have been told it’s only old people who talk about gas prices. Teenagers don’t seem to care, and I never hear any of them talking about gas prices. I guess thats because they get money from their parents. Maybe they just have more important things to talk about. I guess us old folks are just hanging around waiting to get older.

Obesity. We eat too much. Obviously, but why.


One reason we eat too much is because we have too many meals. People needed three meals(Breakfast, lunch and dinner) when they did physical labor–workrd in the fields, farmed, etc. Now we sit in front of a computer and do little physical labor. We should do away with lunch and have a combined brunch about ten in the morning. It would also be more efficient.

Working too hard as a youngster


People often state that they regret having worked so hard as a young person, instead of enjoying oneself and taking time to smell the roses. Wonder if they still think that, knowing how bad the economy is, how the stock market has lost money over the last ten years and people’s retirement funds are dwindling.
