RetComLife – Info About Waitstaffs

I came across some statistics lately about the dining industry that I believe explain some about the problems of my RetCom’s (retirement community) dining problems of not being able to build a reliable waitstaff. There were many of them in my source but for this post I will concentrate on just three. If you want to see the whole article click HERE. My RetCom has … Continue reading RetComLife – Info About Waitstaffs

I Just Couldn’t Help Myself

So, I will give you a brief story about Aspies and obsession. Here is a quote from a reliable source about Aspies and special interests. I recognized this trait in myself from an early age. I … Continue reading I Just Couldn’t Help Myself

Myth #37 – Old People Don’t Do On-Line

I’m sure you, to one degree or another, likely agree with the title of this post. Old people are simply not tech-savvy to any degree. When I suggested to the management here at my RetCom (retirement community) home that we should have an on-line interface for communications with the residents, I was given that line. With nothing to back my suggestion up I let it … Continue reading Myth #37 – Old People Don’t Do On-Line

PANIC!! – The Interest Rates Are Above 3%!!

I can only say one thing about the title above. GET OVER IT I know all you Millennials and GenZers are used to getting all us Baby Boomers savings for free, but I have to inform you that is not normal. I have an account with almost $200,000 in it, and it gets about $5/month interest. It’s about time you future generations paid your own … Continue reading PANIC!! – The Interest Rates Are Above 3%!!

If We Let Nature Take Its Course, We Would All Be Dead of Cholera or COVID

To me, the statement “Let nature take its course” is kinda synonymous with “It’s in God’s hands”. Saying that seems to put some people at ease for not doing something personally to solve the problems of the world. Another is that they don’t trust anything that they don’t understand. Science is all about understanding the mysteries of nature. We simply can’t wait for the universe … Continue reading If We Let Nature Take Its Course, We Would All Be Dead of Cholera or COVID

Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy

As most of my regular readers know, I am currently focusing my studies on among other things, philosophy. I know that is pretty boring stuff to most of you, so I promise I won’t do too many posts on that subject. But, this quote from Plato 2,000+ years ago got my attention, and I think you will find it enlightening. “Dictatorship naturally arises out of … Continue reading Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy

RetComLife – The Thing About Men: Part 3 – Finally, The Project

This is a continuation of yesterday’s post about trying to start up a new activity here in my RetCom (retirement community) that is focused toward us guys. Yesterday I talked about two possibilities: woodworking and model building. Today’s post is about a third path forward and that is Lego. I know many of you are probably saying that Lego is for kids, but since old … Continue reading RetComLife – The Thing About Men: Part 3 – Finally, The Project

RetComLife – The Thing About Men: Part 2 -Let’s Build Stuff”

I have been in my RetCom home for 14 months now, and am slowly making some friends here. Being deaf and having Aspie traits has made that process difficult as it has for most everything in my last 35 years. Finding my place here has been a struggle. I tried to start up an activity pointed towards hearing loss issues, but that just didn’t pan … Continue reading RetComLife – The Thing About Men: Part 2 -Let’s Build Stuff”

RetComLife – The Thing About Men Part 1: Just The Facts…

Before I get into the basic idea for this 3-day series about Retirement Community Life, I need to give you a little basic background. “Just the facts” as Joe Friday used to say on the TV show Dragnet. Most RetComs (retirement communities) are usually about 75% women and 25% men, and the majority of the staff of the community are primarily women. So, we men … Continue reading RetComLife – The Thing About Men Part 1: Just The Facts…

At that time, I will give you a full … Continue reading EPS – Favorites

Artsy Saturday – Learning To Sketch Lesson- An Update

Progress has been slow in this endeavor to learn how to sketch. Maybe I am too impatient to wait out being accomplished at it. Or perhaps I just don’t think I will, with the time left for me, ever be accomplished at this new thing. So, I am going to take a shortcut in getting to the expected end result I desire. I am quite … Continue reading Artsy Saturday – Learning To Sketch Lesson- An Update

Given The Human Psyche…

Given the human psyche, a person could spend a lifetime discovering who he actually is. When I was thinking how fragile the human psyche is, the above words came to me. When I look back on my life I can now see specific incidents to showed that my Aspie traits have been with me all along. Why didn’t I discover that until recently? I guess … Continue reading Given The Human Psyche…

For The First Time In My Life…

For the vast majority of my existence, I have always believed that my commitments have dictated that I live on other people’s terms. In the last year or so, I have reached that point where I can live as I choose without considering others. In some ways being able to live on your own terms is scary…. I just don’t seem to know how to … Continue reading For The First Time In My Life…

‎⁨Every Picture Has Story – Sanborn⁩, ⁨Tuscarora Nation⁩

During my recent trip through upstate New York I came across the ‎⁨Sanborn⁩, ⁨Tuscarora Nation⁩, ⁨United States⁩. When I did a Wikipedia search of Tuscarora I am told about the North Carolina version. I have read several books about the Iroquois Confederation, but didn’t know that there were still tribes in the Northeast.

Artsy Fartsy Saturday – The Ubiquitous Weaving Loom.

I have visited more historic colonies than I can even count during my Search Of America, and almost every one has a version of a loom in it. Without even serving its function the loom itself has an artsy feel. My wife really loved weaved rugs, so we had more of them around the house than I could even count. I know, those types of … Continue reading Artsy Fartsy Saturday – The Ubiquitous Weaving Loom.
