Maybe it was never alive anyway, but I've decided to give this Blog page a decent burial. I was never that comfortable with sharing my unstructured thoughts with an audience of undetermined size to begin with. As I explained in one of the blog posts I was not a user of...

There is a four day period coming up in my original hometown, Nashville, Tennessee, that hits on all three food groups. Thursday, October 11, my high school alumni association is celebrating the 80th year of the school. (The fact that it has not been a high school sinc...

I leave tonight for one of my periodic trips to Arizona. It's been hot and humid in Kentucky this summer and it will be hotter and less humid in Mesa/Gilbert when I get there. The good news is in summer golf courses are uncrowded and  prices are reduced. The bad news i...
