Me again! Having been absent from my WordPress site for some time, now that I'm back, the entire interface seems different (Where are the Daily Prompts? Are we not doing that anymore?).

People would be more efficient because they'd know they only have four days to get their work done, and they'd be grateful for the three-day weekends. Think about it. Grocery stores would be designed so you'd walk into the dry foods section, then … Continue reading If I Ran the World

If you write it . . .

One of my all-time favorite movies is Field of Dreams (1989; Academy Awards Best Picture Nominee 1990). Baseball, Iowa, James Earl Jones, Shoeless Joe, dreams, hopes, tears . . . sigh.
