It seems that EVERYTHING is about Covid-19 lately. Even most of the blogs I visit daily are about it. I don’t know if you are like me, but I am becoming somewhat overwhelmed with it lately. It has only been going on for less than a month or so but it seems like a year at least. This post is going to be a respite for me and hopefully will also get your mind off it for at least a couple of minutes too.

Storytelling is something that is as old as man. Before written languages were developed and taught to the masses storytelling was the only way to pass down history. Why I seem to be obsessed with trying out storytelling is a mystery to me. That is what this post is all about.

I love the title of this post. It came from my friends at Reimagining The Future. What do we do when automation has finally eliminate the need for humans to do mundane mind boring tasks? That’s what this post is all about.

No, I’m not talking about a paperweight hospital or the fact that the sole practical purpose of a paperweight is to sit around keeping things from becoming unsettled. What I am talking about is the patience it takes to make a paperweight as shown above. That is what this artsy post is all about.

Tomorrowland

I am definitely a SciFi guy. I love watching almost anything in that genre. The Mad Max movies and that type of doomsday stuff is neat but I really get off on the things that show humanity on a positive note. I guess that maybe started with “Robbie the Robot” in the 1956 film Forbidden Planet. By the time the Jetsons cartoon series rolled around I was totally hooked. I just love thinking about future possibilities.

Greekish Salad – RJ Walters

RJsCorner is meant to be a very diverse place. I cover many topics because I am a guy with many labels. One label I haven’t shown you here is my chef side. I spent five years in college working in a dormitory cafeteria serving about 600 people three meals a day. I started that time washing pots and pans and ended up running the entire student waiter staff of about fifty people. I learned many things about cooking and such in addition to how to be an engineer during those years.

One of the things in my life that is very puzzling to me is how I got in the mode of spending time daily with this activity. It is not as if I have nothing else to do with my time. My wife has been doing this activity for the past three decades but I never had much of an interest in it. It’s puzzling how all this got started.
