Out and About – Week of June 6th

I spent nine years working for a Japanese freight forwarder in Chicago. During those nine years, I was able to become familiar with the Japanese language, but not enough to follow the dialogue in foreign movies featuring Japanese actors.

I mention this because we’ve both been married before, so we realize what can happen if you don’t consistently work together to make the marriage a success. I …

Out and About – Week of May 16th

I wish that I were more of a reader. I read about two books a year, which is something that I’m not proud of. I receive several magazines monthly and I usually end up adding them to a stack of other magazines, with intentions of reading them later when I have more time. What I should do is set aside …
