Ignoring Clint Eastwood's advice in "Dirty Harry" that opinions, like certain body parts, are best kept to yourself.

Ghosting, or suddenly disappearing from someone’s life without so much as a call, email, or text, has become a common phenomenon in the modern world.The graphic to the left goes to this newspaper article:
Ghosting, or suddenly disappearing from someone’s life without so much as a call, email, or text, has become a common phenomenon in the modern world.

It has happened, I think, to all of us, including me. In the early years, high school and college it seemed natural, you simply moved away from individuals or groups you were associated with, lost track of them, gained new friends and acquaintences, and the old ones just faded away.

Now, it can happen, not in a fading, but instantly and maybe hurtful. I said or did the wrong thing without thinking, or the other person could no longer be polite or forgiving of what I did or said.

My grandmother used to say "never discuss politics or religion", and I'm realizing she was right if you wanted to avoid conflict. I can't seem to avoid either topic. And, sometimes, I just act stupidly, without rehearsing what I'm about to say I just come out with it.

I regret losing a couple of friends this way, one recently. Life is too short to do that, and my best friend in life, my wife Hazel, who shared my life for 53 years, is no longer here to help me solve the problem. I cling to those long-time friends I still have, with regular visits in person, on the telephone, or by internet transmissions, and look forward to those get-togethers.

Recently, a good friend for many years told me that at age 87 he's been accepted to go to medical school. "Really?" I said. "Yes," he replied, "I'm donating my body to science, and they tell me I'm going to one of the most prestigious medical schools in the country".

The way he talked, I think he was actually looking forward to it.

A common belief about Lake Tahoe is that the Mafia used it as a burial ground for unfortunate rivals. This happened, presumably, in the area’s early days as a casino destination. Another story involves alleged sightings of a large aquatic creature that locals christened Tahoe Tessie.

The Biden Administration has admitted to flying 320,000 illegal immigrants on secret flights into the U.S., in an effort to decrease the number of illegal immigrant encounters at the Southern Border. The flights, they say, were not ''secret'' they posted them in reports that nobody reads. When asked to disclose how many and where to, no response. These ''newcomers'' are going to be ''newdemocrats'' with voting ability, a move they deny, to destroy opposition in future elections.

Sexually scandalous behavior and the presidency seem to go together like Bill Clinton and a saxophone. Author Eleanor Herman, explores the lives of several of America's chief executives, like Lyndon Johnson, who slept with four of his six secretaries, asking around before he hired a woman whether she would ''shuck her drawers.''

Through the tense Cold War years of the 1960s and 1970s, the Phantom was the symbol of Western tactical airpower. Between 1958 and 1981, 5,195 Phantoms were built in a dozen variants and flown by a dozen nations, making it the most prolific supersonic American warplane ever built.

If you are headed to South Dakota on vacation, don't miss Custer State Park in the beautiful Black Hills. The largest State Park in the United States, and bigger than many National Parks with, they say, as many or more Buffalo than Yellowstone. Not to be missed!

A year or so ago, I started to put together a first aid kit for the motorhome. Traveling alone, often in wilderness areas, I felt I needed a good one, and even purchased a gunshot trauma kit, something often carried by gun enthusiasts when they go to the shooting range. You just never know when something might happen.

Easter is a festival and holiday celebrated by millions of people around the world who honor the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred three days after his crucifixion at Calvary. It is also the day that children excitedly wait for the Easter bunny to arrive and deliver their treats of chocolate eggs.
