Not Such A Silly Question. . . “Do they celebrate Cinco de Mayo in other countries?”  As a native Californian, I admit it caught me by some surprise, but just a little. Perhaps Oy Vey would have been a better response. Oh, well. . . Beyond the literal translation - is there a May 5 in other coun...
 Reach Out And Touch Raymond Henson, eXp Realty  recently posted a question in the Q&A section that wasn’t so much a request for an answer but a means of connection through the tagging function that had disappeared and then reappeared from ActiveRain.   While gone, I missed it and it seems others...
 Game Stop  I almost missed the controversy around Game Stop earlier this year.  Then again, anything that seems somewhat sports-related can fly over my head.  But Game Stop piqued my interest because it had the retail angle to it which was familiar to me as well as various elements of surprise a...
 Catching Those Thought Bubbles Just Wondering On A Saturday It seems to me thought bubbles would come in handy at times.  As we hear news of mask-wearing easing in some circles, perhaps it's time for a new must-have accessory. The use of a visible thought bubble could be a good addition as we ea...
 Penultimate Puzzle PiecesIt’s kinda fitting in some ways.  I received my first Covid vaccination on Thursday, April 1 - April Fools' Day.   Was that some kind of message?  And yesterday, the 29th (the next to the last day of the month) I received shot number two.  I can’t describe the experience...
Random Thoughts, Randomness And The Not So Random WaysThings Seem To Connect My daily walks may seem random but there is a certain routineness to them.  I prefer early mornings when there is less traffic and more time to ponder as well as wander. I often see the same people.   Actually, it seems ...
 A Grain Of Salt. . .  Yeah, I admit to a bit of skepticism.  It’s healthy, right?  But like anything, the recipe of life is defined not only with ingredients but with measurements and knowledge of a world greater than any one object where all sorts of things are combined to create works that can...
In MemoriamA Not-So-Short Subject It's a little after 8:15PM Sunday here on the West Coast and the televised production of the Academy Awards has passed.  For some, the show had some surprising moments.  Will the number of predictable ones as expected by naysayers and others foretell an end to no...
Oscar The Grouch And Other Random Thoughts    This Sunday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present the Academy Awards honoring achievement in film for the gazillionth time.  Give or take a decade.   I’ll leave the number counting to Price Waterhouse Sheldon Cooper or whoever ...
Left Hand Meet Right Hand    It is easy for me to admit that my physical coordination and athletic prowess has never been one of my strengths.  I accept that.  Anything beyond basic exercise can test my fitness agility.    And that’s stretching the limits of basic, mind you.  That said I was thin...
