Boy, times sure have changed. Sometimes I feel that I was born in the wrong century. My volunteer consulting project recently started up. I am very excited about this year’s team since we have a mix of both “older” volunteers (older meaning they are over 50) and “younger” volunteers (younger being under 30). Everyone is […]

The other day I was hard at work at my computer, er rather I was attempting to reach Level 400 in Candy Crush, when I heard Mr. Ken come back from shopping. I thought I heard him say: “Peep is in the house.” I will admit that I am getting a bit more hard of […]

What ever happened to honesty and integrity? I know, I know, I am asking a rhetorical question, but two recent incidents really got me thinking.

Blame it on my foot surgery. Since December, I have not been able to get up at my usual 4:30 am. For the first few weeks, I could use the pain medications as my excuse since they made me really sleepy. Then, it was my body healing. But it has been two months now. Maybe […]

Another day in Cambridge

My consulting project started up this week, so I have been very busy. Here’s a view from the Longfellow Bridge, which runs from Kendall Square in Cambridge to Boston. It is also known as the “salt and pepper” bridge since the structures look like salt and pepper shakers. The picture I took was very dark, […]
