UNDERSTANDING THE PINTEREST ENGINE: PHASE I

Putting Pictures in Perspective It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. I for one put a lot of effort into either finding, or creating, quality media presentations on the posts I present on my website. They set the tone for the stories that follow them and draw the reader in. I feel that if I can promote my website and novels by creating initial interest through pictures on a promotional platform setting, then I can follow that up with excerpts from my […]

A CONCRETE REASON TO BELIEVE

The Brothers Twofer Back in the years of 1985/86 I had the fortune of employing 2 brothers at different times who were marvelous gentlemen to work with. Having met them at Bethel Baptist Church in Harbor Gateway (Los Angeles), California while living in the area, I was inspired by their work ethic and devotion to completing the tasks at hand. The first one that I hired, Mark Cayot, not only impressed me, but also one of my clients, an engineer for Northrop Grumman Aerospace Corporation (B2 Flying […]

MY IPAD AIR TIPS AND TRICKS

Ipad IOS Apple has made a big change by splitting the IOS operating systems into iOS for iPhones and iPadOS for the latest iPad offerings. As a result of this change, there are now some iPad-specific functions tablet owners should know about. Since there are lots of functions that only work with the larger screen, that separate code would be taking up space on iPhones for functions that are only feasible for use on iPads. With that in mind, I discuss here some tips and tricks I […]

THE CASE FOR GREEN TEA

Overview Of Caffeine’s Effects On The Body I am not a coffee drinker. Millions of people are and probably feel they can only get by with at least one cup first thing in the morning. That is to say, without their morning coffee, they might struggle to wake up or even make it through the day! But while dependency on coffee, and the big dose of caffeine that it provides, is a somewhat worrying thing for me, I have valid concerns as well. According to a report […]

THE MIRACLE OF A BEATING HEART THAT WOULDN’T DIE

                          Prologue This article is about an extraordinary event that happened in the lives of two people that are dear to my heart. I feel that the time has come to publish it and let others know that seemingly impossible events can take place in our lives that defy explanation.

THE MOMENT OF TRUTH FOR A DISCONSOLATE MOTHER

The Setting This article is about a tale that should have been written years ago, but because of the callous nature of one detached husband, it wasn’t penned. It’s about a wife who felt that she couldn’t share her deepest feelings with him at a time when she needed it most. Now, some 40 plus years later, the time has come. The story goes hand in hand with two other articles written over 2 years ago. They describe the ordeal of dealing with a newborn child who […]

SHARK ENCOUNTERS I WILL NOT FORGET

My Fascination With Shark Week As I write this blog in the home office, I have the the Discovery Channel playing one of the Shark Week documentaries playing in the background. It’s called “Jaws Awakens: Phred vs. Slash”. It’s a tale about two massive great white sharks that inhabit the South Pacific waters off the coast of southern New Zealand near the fishing community of Oban. These two sharks are sized in the area of 20 feet long and brandishing a bulk of 4000 estimated pounds of […]

SUPERFOODS HEALTH CORNER: KALE BASED SALAD

Blood Tests Don’t Lie I recently had my yearly blood test done and discovered my current diet is sending me backwards. My Hemoglobin a1c level showed I had moved into the pre-diabetic danger zone, my LDL cholesterol level was 31 points over the minimum acceptable level, and my Bilirubin Total was high. Since writing the last blog concerning my dietetic maneuvers entitled “THE OUT OF BOUNDS COUNTRY DIET: PART II”, I have failed to keep track of my progress on the bathroom scale and my diet has […]

POST CIVIL WAR RECKONING

If I Were Alive Back Then When I watch movies or documentaries about the Civil War, I rarely see much that deals with the Reconstruction Period that took place afterwards. It seems that whatever I do find has to do with the way slaves were treated and what happened to them when set free. Very little is said about the trials and tribulations that everyone else went through at that time. Since I was born in the South, I guess I could think of myself as a […]
