Curmudgeon Corner - Just Around the Corner

My Thoughts for April 26, 2015

Alright men, pay attention!  Men, Mother’s Day is just around the corner.  Alert the kids; get them on-board.  Get yourself on-board.  What’d mean their grown?  What’d you mean you have no child?  (For guys that are oblivious, May 10th is Mother’s Day.) !  No, don’t give me that excuse, “She’s not my mother.”   She’s the mother of your children, isn’t she??  Also, if you’re really honest, she’s been “mothering” you since the proverbial…

My Thoughts for April 19, 2015

Everyone knows curmudgeons like me hate change.  I do. I do. I do. The problem is change is like time—it can’t   be stopped.  The reality is one must learn to deal with it.  Deal with It?  But it is so painful.  Do I have to?  Here’s the short answer. Yep!

There is a change taking place in our communities that is subtle, progressive, and immutable.  It is called the Digital Age.  I loathe it and love it in the same…

Curmudgeon Corner – Thoughts on Campaign Announcements

My Thoughts for April 12, 2015   

Call me a curmudgeon if you want, but all this ink that is devoted to who’s running for president and who’s not running is making me really grouchy.  On the Republican side is a field of candidates the size of a football team.  I don’t know about you, but I can’t decide who the team captain is.  Jeb Bush is reported to have the most money, does that make him the captain.  Here are some news headlines about the man: “Jeb Bush Reaffirms He Does Not…

Curmudgeon Corner - Easter Pollens

My Thoughts for April 5, 2015  

One thing I’ve noted about my aging as I move toward oblivion is the spring pollens.  Now I know that pollens are necessary for the plants to be able to reproduce, but instead of being carried around by winds, couldn’t we use more insects?  Bees are the most notable transporters of pollens.  Those busy little worker bees, I just love them! They work hard to collect the makings for delicious honey; while at the same time manage to get pollen stuck all…

Curmudgeon Corner – Brave New World

My Thoughts for March 29, 2015   

What is happening to the world I once knew?  A few weeks ago I went into a restaurant for lunch and discovered a tablet on the table where I was seated.  It was taking the place of a waitperson.  Today I read in the news that Tesla Motors is planning on rolling out a driverless car.  The only thing holding up the planned roll out is the state, in this case California.  Apparently technology is moving so fast that the state’s insurance department can’t…

Curmudgeon Corner – Our Capitalistic Democracy

My Thoughts for March 22, 2015   

Here’s the truth about politics in our country.  It takes loads of money nowadays to run for public office, even local elections are expensive.  At the federal level, you basically need to be a millionaire or have friends who are.  If you’re not a millionaire when you get elected, you soon will be by the end of your term.  That makes this old curmudgeon think, “What the heck is going on in our country?”

With the ruling by the Supreme Court that…

Curmudgeon Corner - Lacking Presidential Respect

My Thoughts for March 15, 2015    

I gotta tell you, I was beginning to have some interest in the possible candidacy of Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) until he signed a letter intended for Iran authored by freshman senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark.). Now I’m wondering if Republicans have the capacity to govern. The intent of the letter was to derail the nuclear negotiation with Iran. It marked the first time Congress has ever stepped on a President trying to negotiate a treaty.

Curmudgeon Corner – What Space Can Teach Us

My Thoughts for March 8, 2015

Two science events took place this past week that all of us should note. First, the European Space Agency’s Mars Express spacecraft has detected geological evidence a rather large ocean did exist on Mars at one time.  Whether the ocean contained life is still an unknown but I like to think that Martian fishermen may have at one time cruised on boats and hauled in large Martian fish.  Of course, this was some four to five billion years ago and it will be…
