It All Started with Cave Drawings and Smoke Signals

How many people know what they want to do with their life at age 5? I did. That's when my grandfather gave me a transistor radio. Billions of these devices were sold, in the 60's and 70's. If you believe the Smithsonian, the transistor was as much a communication game...

American Man

Lisa and I drove a nearly 400 mile round trip yesterday, so we could watch my brother Rich play guitar for 45 minutes with a country band. Tom Dobson is a young country artist from Connecticut with his first album out on an independent label. He was the opening act...

Blink of an Eye

It's been an interesting week. From Central Vermont, you can be anywhere in New England if you're willing to drive a few hours. Montreal and Boston are both day trips. After following the Yes tour through 2 states, we settled in at home for only a day before heading...

The Power of Yes

We were in Boston Tuesday night at the Wilbur Theater, where Yes played a nearly 3-hour concert set to a packed house. Standing ovation. I'll be honest, the Wilbur Theater is a bit run down and the acoustics were a bit wonky, which I hate. But what a band. As tight,...

How Dare They?

We interrupt this program. In this day and age of infinite channels, of smartphone alerts, why interrupt any program? If there's a true emergency, such as a devastating tornado headed for my town, or worse, an asteroid is about to destroy the Earth and there's nothing...

My Summer Vacation

What if the only human interactions that really matter are your "in person" relationships? I know. I'm writing a blog. I get the irony. But every time I unplug these days and have good times with regular analog people, it feels like a better choice than posting...

The Staircase

The Staircase on Netflix It's a hit. See it before you google it. Critics give it 90% and Audiences 88% on Rotten Tomatoes. But we didn't know that. Lisa and I decided to watch with almost no idea what it was. It was on Netflix and had a good review from the New York...

What are Facts?

Each one of us is alone. Although we have our 5 senses, it is up to us to decide what information is real, and what it means. I remember when I was a little kid I was told that snow is made out of water. Sounded crazy to a 4-year-old, until I saw snow melt. Now it's...

Facebook is Like Sausage

You probably don't want to know what's in it. I've probably spent a few hundred dollars in a decade, boosting a few posts to see how well they would do. If you've not thought about how Facebook makes its money, they like it that way. Everything they do is...
