The Phone Talker

Watching people doing their daily routine can be quite entertaining. I like watching and listening to people, On this day I was observing a young lady chatting on the phone as she has done many times before. This gal is quite entertaining because of the manner in which she uses a phone. Most will hold a phone with the ear piece at, or near the ear and the mouthpiece at, or near the mouth. This lady will do the same when she is listening to a person on the other end talk, but will take the phone away from her and put the mike against her mouth and speak very loudly into the phone....

Old Dogs, New Tricks

I was hiking in Papago Park with my father-in-law, John, when he lit up a cigarette and started smoking. Smoking while hiking seems, to me, anti-productive, but who am I to question the logic of a 55 year old man? He was in great shape and he didn’t slow down my pace, so I just kept my mouth shut. I kept it shut, that is, until he threw his cigarette on the ground and stepped on the smoldering butt. I stopped in shock. We were hiking on a dirt trail in God’s country–scenic desert complete with Saguaro and Cholla cacti; caramel-colored buttes and jagged mountains; small, crystal lakes with ducks and assorted fowl; and...

Cross Roads

I read an article  in the newspaper this morning regarding persons who have fallen into swimming pools or other areas of water,  and remained under water  long enough to be  life  threatening  or possibly fatal. We cheer  whenever  we see the recovered party being  worked on by medics, suddenly began  coughing, spitting and sometimes crying,   indicating they were one of the lucky ones to be brought back to the state of living.  If that could only be true but alas, in reality only a very few can lay  claim  to being returned  to the point  of where they had died,   so as to continue  on with their lives as if nothing  had ever happened....

The Ghost of Highway 12

Bob felt great. He had the road all to himself. For hours his only company had been the thousands of tiny insects dancing in the beams of the headlights. Cool mountain air rushed into the cab through the open window. It carried a hint of rain, but the sky was cloudless, marked only by the countless sparkling stars and the thin glow of a crescent moon. The feeling of freedom and power as he pressed down on the accelerator was overwhelming – almost intoxicating. Only one thing bothered him at the moment. He didn’t know where he was. Not that he was lost. Bob never got lost, at least not for very long. He...

My Job Sucks

Oh, it didn’t start out that way — no job ever does. Ones first day on the job is usually filled with awe and a sense that “I’m going to be the best employee this company every had!” That’s how it started. For me, the job was a dream come true. Over the years I had acquired what I thought was a fair amount of knowledge in the computer field. I could build or fix just about anything. This job would allow me to help others who were less fortunate in the area. And so the job began. I began working as a computer phone technician for a major computer manufacturer and distributor. There...

America Ain’t Got No Talent

What has become of American television? The days of good quality television entertainment are gone. The days of crap are here. Television is now riddled with nothing but amateur hour television with celebrities giving their opinion on the quality of the want-to-be acts. When did the major network executives loose their ability to find top quality talent and put it on the air? The fact of the matter is, it all boils down to the almighty dollar and not a good quality television program. The American public has become such lethargic looser that they simply watch this mindless drivel, night after night. No longer does one get to see a quality prime time program...

Workplace IM

IM at the workplace seems silly, doesn’t it? Many people use Instant Messaging of some form at work. It helps break up the boredom of an otherwise laborious day at the office place. Instant Messaging, IM, ICQ, pinging or whatever you want to call it has become a part of our daily lives. I work at a company that has open seating cubicles. The only separation between my co-workers and me, is a small cubicle wall that extends a mere foot above the desk. We all can easily look around at each other during the day and easily converse if need be. Yet all of us use IM to chat with the person sitting...

There’s Always Tomorrow

Four uniformed men sat in the relative quiet of a room. They were surrounded by the flashing lights of the computers, and the controls that commanded the military might of a country. The sounds of mayhem and confusion in the war room outside could just barely be heard through the heavy door. The voices were muffled by the thick wood and armor plating. Occasionally a few words could be made out – a sharp and angry bark of a command. Outside were the tiny firecrackers – the sergeants and corporals yelling at each other because there was no one else to yell at. Inside there was the sizzling fuse of a case of dynamite....
