I have been told I am child like in my curiosity and enthusiasms, but have not been called childish or immature for many many years now. There is a very distinct difference in being child like as opposed to childish. Many older folks called me "child" of course when I was under 20 or so. I...

most areas (in the USA at least) have Small business association or downtown development, enterprise support centers or the like. You might get good information from other similar organizations in other localities. Also contact your state agencies that license and certify businesses and organization...

So I'm at Wal-mart buying a bag of dog food for my dog. While in the check-out line, a woman behind me asked if I had a dog. Why else would I be buying dog food, RIGHT??? So on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Dog food Diet again, and that I probably shouldn't beca...

I have much difficulty in doing anything that is in motion or in "real time". I have 25th percentile visual processing and 35th percentile audio processing, so I actually miss more than half of anything that happens, is said, etc in real time. I can't have conversations effectively because...

I have seen recent ads inviting parents to join lawsuits against the makers of tylenol to blame use during pregnancy as the cause of their child's autism. I find this outrageous, but of course it is not about anything but going after big money in a settlement. Shakespeare was right. ( only partially...

I was learning DOS in the early 1980s,using a computer for studies at work. I didn't have a home computer and access to the internet until about 1995. I was very against it at first, but now I am totally dependent on the computer in so many ways. It is my best form of communication and its my almost...
