Ways to give and feeling thankful.
Two recent developments push me to get back to basics today. One is the warm glow from friendship and kindness extended to me over the last week or two, with two Thanksgiving invitations from friends, a lovely Thanksgiving dinner, attendance at a fun Chanukah party and the prospect of more celebrations including a Christmas concert.
To this day he believes “they” have pictures of him.
It was a bright, warm, lazy summer’s day in 1946, about midday in rural Lincoln, in Wayne County. Joshua was playing in his family’s yard when suddenly there was a loud roar coming from the sky.
Old time places to get coffee and a light meal have fallen by the wayside.
I was sitting with a friend in Café at 407 in Liverpool recently -- one of my favorite places to have a cup of coffee, a bite to eat and a chat because of the comfort, welcoming atmosphere and good coffee -- when the conversation turned to old style coffee shops. You know the ones I mean, the places with formica tables; plastic, colored, leatherette seats; sandwiches, soups (you're in luck if they're homemade), chilis; bouffant desserts -- and coffee -- endless cups from a waiter or waitress who might just call you hon.

The website suggested I use a private delivery service
I recently had an experience so frustrating that I was left frozen in disbelief. I didn’t even have the energy to scream, curse or bang my head against the wall. All I can do is write about it, so others can learn from my experience and not suffer the same fate. This is what happened:
News, Album Releases, Stuff and Things.
POINTS OF REFERENCE is a music news blog for people with actual lives and/or short attention spans: a weekly selection of topical, pop music talking points fit for bars and break rooms. It’s divided into three sections: NEWS (duh), ALBUM RELEASES (once more with feeling), and STUFF AND THINGS (random, music-related crap from the internet). So, I’m all finished up here. Scroll down, won’t you?
What we see is purely a function of our brain’s interpretation.
I saw a movie a few years ago that related a story about when Columbus’ ships first arrived in the Americas. The natives couldn’t see the ships because they had never seen anything like them, not until the tribal shaman was able to perceive the waves lapping up on a hole in the water. Some people I know thought the notion was a bunch of hooey, but I knew there was some basis for this in scientific fact. We “see” not just with the eyes, but also with the mind.
