You may not have heard of or remember comedian Rodney Dangerfield. His one-liners were laugh-out-loud funny, and they weren't laced with vulgarity. He was a great talent, yet as part of his act he facetiously complained, “I don't get no respect." Everybody wants respect -- it doesn't matter who you are or what you do. The desire for respect – the need for respect is so compelling that when not given, it can result not just in hurt feelings but also in violence or worse. We are not born with a "disrespect gene" over which we have no control. Disrespect is learned behavior. Contemporary … Read more
I suppose that many readers have seen a jovial George Forman (former prize fighter and inventor of the famous George Forman grill) on TV saying, "My friends are always asking me, 'George, what do I do with my idea for a new product?' and I tell them, go see my friends at The Inventor’s Workplace." (Name changed to protect myself from lawsuits.) So I finally did go to their web site targeted toward would-be inventors. The company web site is very slick with all sorts of pictures showing their extensive facilities, laboratories, manufacturing shops, conference rooms and numerous staff … Read more

Do you ever feel shortchanged in life? It’s an understandable feeling to have, especially in a world that pushes a more-is-mandatory mindset. But, is that mindset helping or holding you back? “I’ve spent too long thinking about what was taken and not what was given.” That is a line of dialogue spoken by Prince Caspian in the movie The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. When I heard it, it gave me pause. How often we follow the train of thought about what we feel was taken from us, including what we feel was taken from us ahead of time. This may include thoughts … Read more
At times I have thought that some people are strange but it is possible that I also have my strange moments. For instance, I can be in a huge supermarket (or Supercenter) and I can’t think of a thing that I want to buy for my meals. Here I am, surrounded by food, and nothing comes to mind. No, that isn’t totally true; I can ALWAYS eat shredded wheat (the bales, not the bites) and certain flavors of ice cream. I am smart enough to know that those two items don’t give me all the vitamins and minerals that I need to enjoy good health. Still, I am in good health at 84 and I don’t WANT anything … Read more

We have a new president elect who has promised to make America great again. Not an easy task when it involves undoing eight years of policies that have had the tendency to undo our prior leadership in the global community. He has committed himself to making the undoing of The Affordable Care Act (i.e. ObamaCare) one of his first priorities. Certainly a daunting task when you think about it because you have millions of people receiving health insurance who have pre-existing medical conditions who would be considered uninsurable without it. And there are millions of people with low incomes who … Read more
