My Boots Are Disco

Thumbnail image for My Boots Are Disco by Catherine Ryan Hyde

I know when you hear the phrase disco boots, your mind goes in a very distinct direction. For the purposes of this blog post, it’s the wrong direction. My new hiking boots are disco. This is not a compliment. Years ago (hell, who am I kidding–decades ago) I was watching something on TV. Two young […]

Poison Control

Thumbnail image for Poison Control by John W Strobel III

It had to be the year 1943. In those days, a fellow had to be twelve years old to be a Boy Scout. So when I turned twelve, I joined Ventura County Boy Scout Troop 102. In 1943 I was a “Tenderfoot”, the lowest classification in the organization, but I had just joined so that’s […]

Serious Things You Need To Know … I think!

Thumbnail image for Serious Things You Need To Know … I think! by John W Strobel III

                    Did you know there are 25.4 millimeters in an inch? There are. Knowing that set me off on a tangent the other day. I was at the Podiatrists having my toe nails trimmed. Being Diabetic, my doctor warns me constantly that I must take care […]

New Year, New You

Thumbnail image for New Year, New You by Christine Ranck

As we are about to enter the second decade of the 21st century (where did the FIRST one go????), it is good to get a little perspective on things. For example, will radio DJs continue to exhort us to listen to the hits of the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and now the “00′s?” How […]

Future Tense – OMG!

Thumbnail image for Future Tense – OMG! by John W Strobel III

The progress of human intelligence is astounding. In every area of endeavor, progress has been exponentially astonishing. The punishment for having accumulated too much knowledge in the “olden days” was to burn intellectual superiors at the stake. Now business leaders and educators glorify knowledge as THE solution to all problems because a well-educated worker fits […]

Mirror, mirror, on the wall. What the…

Thumbnail image for Mirror, mirror, on the wall. What the… by John W Strobel III

I have posed the question before and have never gotten an adequate answer. Perhaps this time someone will be able to satisfy my curiosity? The question: What form of matter exists between the reflection of a person and a mirror? Perhaps I should modify the question to: What form of matter exists between a material […]

Are you ready to start a movement?

Thumbnail image for Are you ready to start a movement? by Brooke Leigh Sheldon

We cherish the leader. We lionize the one who steps forward, who grabs the flag running ahead yelling “Follow me!”. However, if no one follows the mission is never accomplished, the goal is never met, the victory is never won. The leader is successful because of the leaders that step forward to follow!

Green Eggs and Ham, Quantum-Style

Thumbnail image for Green Eggs and Ham, Quantum-Style by Christine Ranck

Studies show that when something is learned by someone once, it is easier for somebody else to learn it again later! A pattern of thought or a behavior is more easily produced once it has been produced before. For example, in experiments, untrained rats must learn how to run or swim a maze to get […]

Laughing Science

Thumbnail image for Laughing Science by Brooke Leigh Sheldon

“What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul” Yiddish proverb I hold on to the pinpoint luxury of those words. However, there are people who study the intention behind the subject of those words. For laughter and laughing have a science all their own. It’s called: GELOTOLOGY. That’s right. I realize that […]
