I’m continuing to smile and revel in the experiences over these past 8 months. I’ve made wonderful friends doing exceptional things as they follow the passions in their lives. This time I’ve included the links to each show in case you missed any of them. Here are some examples: I’ve long been associated with the…

My Year In Review, Part 1

Who knew back on April 13, 2015, on my very first Born To Talk Radio Show, that I would be writing today on December 6, 2015 with 35 shows worth of experiences to talk about? I’ve gone back and watched those early shows. I have grown during these past 8 months from completely unfamiliar with…

If These Birds Could Talk

I often wonder what goes on in the mind of my feathered friends.  How do they know where I live? How do they know when it’s time to eat each day?  How well do they see and hear? Oh I suppose Google has the answer to these questions and so much more. Let’s start with…

Forever Grateful for My Dad

This blog is unlike anything I have written in the past.  I was going through my attic to see if I could find some Military memories from my dad in honor of Veteran’s Day tomorrow.  What I found instead was the story of his life.  It is beautifully handwritten in his perfect capitalized printing, in…

Listen…Do You Wanna Know A Secret?

Sometimes the birds just seem to tell a story by their actions. I know these crows are doing just that. It was fun to watch the one on the right follow his friend on the power line.I think they were having an argument.Now it appears they are on the same page.They really are the smartest…

I Call It Art

Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder, according to Plato. In my world it’s everywhere. As an example, the Wall Art that I saw while visiting Seattle. You can travel all over the world and see what some find offensive and others find delightful. For me, I am always intrigued by the skill and…
