Opinions are fun. My friends tell me I am someone with lots of opinions
and that's fine since I don't get mad at others when they disagree with me. In this same spirit I am interested
in hearing yours views as long as you are able to share your views without boiling over. I look forward to hearing from you.
I tend to write in the form of short essays most of the time, but contributions do not need to be in this same format or size.
Some of the content here will date itself pretty quickly, other content may be virtually timeless, this is for the reader to judge.

I am here to tell you that your mother was wrong. Did I step on something I should not have…oh well! Truth is what truth is. I know, your teeth are crooked, but your mother told you “don’t worry…it’s what’s inside that counts”. If you are old enough to read this, you are old enough to know that mothers will always love their children regardless of first impressions and lie when they need to.
Charity needs you

I have been puzzling in my mind for months on how to write about charity. The subject is very important to me. My quandary has been my approach. While I don’t want to preach, I want you to understand why charity should be important to you and an integral part of your life. Should I talk about the moral value of charity, should I look at the importance of doing good things for others, there is a.....read more…

Technology has given us access to a continuous stream of information and most of it seems bad. Bank failures, unemployment numbers, suicide bombers, murder, rape, greed, corruption, tax increases….seems like.....read more…
Work Life Balance

The value of talking
Posted at: Jun/01/2009 : Posted by: mel
I think that one of the best things about being a person is interacting with other people. Talking, listening, and general socializing is fun. Unless you are one of those rare “uni-bomber” types, you probably also enjoy the company of others. By our very nature we are social creatures. We communicate to share, we communicate to get affirmation, we communicate to avoid being alone, we communica.....read more…
Do you believe in luck?
Posted at: Apr/30/2009 : Posted by: mel
I was asked the other day by someone close to me if I believe in “luck”. I can say without a doubt that I do believe in luck. Random happenstance of good things is very real.
