“…The truth, now-a-days, is a VARIABLE. It’s neither black, or white, or even grey… it is any color in the rainbow…”

It’s NEVER right to do WRONG. The other day I purchased a can of “bright-white” paint. My painter told me to tell the paint store to “add” TWO DROPS of BLACK, in order to achieve the desired shade of white. When I got around to using the paint, it had “settled” and the two drops […]

“… He works HARD, is very HONEST, is KNOWLEDGABLE, and FAIR…. But one lacking characteristic is that he LACKS the “killer instinct.”

ACCEPTING STATUS-QUO: Ever wonder why a certain friend or co-worker seems to have it all together? Well adjusted….yet struggling financially; …not fashionable – yet neat and clean; family education is clearly important…but he struggles to send them to the best schools. He’s recognized as an un-official leader, yet receives no reward. In spite of the […]

“…No one wanted it Dead Man’s Cliff, as it was thought to be un-developable and valueless; plus local legend held that many a man died on “Dead Man’s Cliff…”

OPPORTUNITY: What others see as difficult…I see as opportunity?  You can’t make money on the easy stuff….the harder, the more risky…the better the return.   Or, if you’re not careful…greater the fall.   As a youth, I once fell down a 100’ (sloping) cliff onto a railroad track.  As soon as I realized I was not dead…I […]

“…I used to get a call from an “old lady friend,” who, by the Grace of God, would call me at “just the right time…”

Doing the right thing: I’ve been around the bush a few times over the last 75 years, and have found, too often….that…just because you know the right thing to do…doesn’t always mean that you follow your own good advice; or even that of your CONCERNED friends, relatives, and peers.
