A classmate of mine recently sent me a quote that really set me to thinking. It’s really sad that the quote has come to be a reality, and we should all give it some serious thought. Albert Einstein said, “I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots.” It seems ... Read More »

Out and About – Week of March 10th

I think that if I were to attend such a meeting, I’d stand and say, “Hello, my name ... Read More »

After all, we can pretty much go anywhere we want to these days. I’m pretty sure that it meant you can never go home and find it the way you left ... Read More »
