cropped-cropped-blog.jpg“What’s in a Blog?” Shakespeare might ask. “Anything and everything a computer owner cares to share” would probably be an appropriate answer. News, gossip, opinions, his or other’s, whatever moves a “blogger” seems to qualify.

This first edition…

In a valiant attempt at organization, I have broken this first edition down into three departments. One I call “Bits and Pieces”, which consists of everyday life stories I have always wanted to share with anyone who would listen. Another, “Begged and Borrowed”, includes items lifted from outside sources that I feel would be worth passing on. I call the third “Etc. Etc. Etc.” for just what that expression implies.

Each article for this week is located in a drop down menu in the orange bar below the title photo. Just hover over the category with your mouse and select the entry you wish to read. You may also access the individual articles by selecting “open” at the end of each preview below.


Preview: Girard Avenue:  A six-year-old boy faces his first real test of survival. [Open]

Preview: Paper Boy:  Two character building ‘life and growth’ experiences of a very young entrepreneur. [Open]

Nothing could be more self-indulgent than writing one’s own biography. My old friend, Fred Tankel, used to refer to his life as ‘G-rated’. My own comes pretty close to ‘G’, and is certainly not worthy of memoir-style treatment. On the other hand, certain events stand out that I would give anything to play back for my own entertainment like one would a home movie or video. Putting memory to test and pencil to paper is my way of replaying what I call, ‘Bits and Pieces of an Ordinary Life’. So please indulge me.


Preview: Coffee Story:   There’s coffee and then there’s real coffee. Fascinating woman… fascinating story. [Open]

Every day I come across something in the media, on the internet or in other peoples’ blogs that I find interesting or important enough to share with others. Hopefully I’m not running afoul of copyright laws by passing it on to my little blog family. It’s sorta like sharing an article one has read in a newspaper or magazine without the postage.


Preview: Back Care Tips:  ‘Flare-ups’ are the product of ‘Screw-ups’. Avoid the pain by avoiding the strain. [Open]

Preview: Cartoon of the Blog:   Aging… Yech! [Open]

Could be just about anything else I would enjoy sharing with my Blog family.
