Explore. Dream. Discover.

Thursday, July 08, 2010

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Changes in Longitude

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

Jimmy Buffett said changes in latitude caused changes in attitude. Changes in longitude to too. Life is different on the left coast, the fact that everything happens three hours later notwithstanding. i will be returning to EST on the red-eye tonight so things will be happening when they are supposed to.

I noticed an interesting phenomenon. I am conscious of the ads on Spark People but last weerk when I was in Western New Yo9urk, I noticed the ads were for Buffalo and Rochester concerns and this week the ads are for San Francisco businesses. How does Spark Prople know where I am?

God Bless America!

Sunday, July 04, 2010

God Bless America!
Land that I love.
Stand beside her,
And Guide her,
Through the night with the light from above.

From the mountains
To the prairies
To the oceans, white with foam

God Bless America!
My home sweet home

God Bless America!
My home sweet home
