Senior Moments – for week of April 14

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – There’s a story written by Oscar Wilde called “The Picture of Dorian Gray” where a young man is so beautiful and conceited that he has his portrait painted and then, falling in love with his own likeness, wishes that the image in the painting would age instead of his actual face. That’s [...]

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – Leading a fairly sedentary lifestyle I’m very fond of reading biographies of explorers who have traveled the world over in search of fame and adventure, men like Sir Edmund Hillary who was the first to successfully climb Mt.

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – It’s been a long time since I was in elementary and high school but the things that I learned in Math, Language, and Science classes are as true and correct today as they were over 60 years ago. Euclidean Geometry or the Pythagorean Theorem haven’t altered and are still taught in classrooms [...]

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – I’ve been called many things over the years and not all of which were flattering, but one that my wife likes to use is “The Great White Hunter.” Not that I actually hunt, but whenever I go fishing she always assumes I’ll come back with nothing but stories of the ones that [...]

Senior Moments – for week of March 10

In case you don’t realize it, this week contains a special date of great significance. First of all it’s my wife’s birthday but while that is of personal importance, I’m referring to something of even more cataclysmic consequence if that’s possible. Besides my spouse, looking at the names of others born on March 14 it’s [...]

Lone Survivor

Lone Survivor

  Lone Survivor (2014) Dir. Peter Berg       Lone Survivor is a film I’ve been avoiding, but knew I had to see eventually. The ad campaigns for it made it seem like just an okay Team America sort of film. Yet, the press was talking about it being an Oscar contender. Though it didn’t [...]

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – An update – Probably because we grew up on the paved streets of a big city, my wife and I now appreciate seeing animals from the surrounding woods wander across our property, especially in the morning while we eat breakfast. We never tire of watching the indigenous fauna cautiously scurry through, everything [...]

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – Fairy tales have been delighting both young and old since the beginning of time, relating stories of poor girls who become princesses, animals that transform into humans, witches, giants, elves, knights in shining armor, magic rings or carpets, and adventures in enchanted forests, hazardous seas, or the exotic lands of Persia, Arabia, [...]

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – Whenever I see a science fiction movie, the extra-terrestrials are always portrayed as having big heads with little bodies which has been the case at least since H.G. Wells wrote War of the Worlds in 1898. I don’t know where he got that idea other than from the fact that it makes [...]

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – Have you ever had to face your own mortality? I don’t mean finding out that you have a terminal illness but rather that you’re about to be blown up by a bomb and can’t do anything to prevent it from happening.
