Some stories are true and perhaps it is the only ones we are destined to tell. It does not call for smart words or accurate grammar. It only needs to be understood from the heart. This is not about me telling but about you listening, so listen up.

The evening has been nothing less than perfect. Dinner at your favourite restaurant, where the chef creates impeccable constructs of culinary art, where the gracious staff are there to attend to your every need, where the wine pairs perfectly with each delicious morsel.

Narrow Mindedness

I contend that most of us are narrow minded.

As I wrote the previous sentence I had a vision of the fingers of the majority of the few people who come here immediately pouncing on their keyboards to pound out an exceptionally fervent agreement or disagreement with that statement. Or maybe they’ll get defensive and pen a personal repudiation.

Prove me wrong. Please wait until you finish reading this post before spouting your response.

Honesty is like a diamond in the world of lies. To uderstand why we are here, we have to be true to ourselves. The only problem is that most people forgotten their true purpose of existence. They only follow trends or other people.

Henry Hudson was an experienced and busy English seaman. Firstly he had been commissioned by the English merchants in the Muscovy Comp­any in 1607; he was to find a north west passage to China via a route above the Arctic Circle. This would be, if he found it, a quick route from England to the "islands of spicery."

An Owl Reflects

I was born before I was born. All owls are.

True to the species, my fate was chiseled on ancient rocks by comets hurled from alien space. No one could change it after that, not even God. Certainly not father.

What does it take to make an incredible plate of bar-style, fully loaded nachos? For starters, at least three kinds of cheese, two kinds of beans, and two different applications of creamy, tangy dairy. It may sound like overkill, but there's a method to this madness.

Television Has News and Views but No Real Clues

Wally is said to have spent most of his weekend finishing up the last few episodes of Star Trek's Next Generation.

Was a time when he'd get up and watch Meet the Press on Sunday morning, but in Wally's mind, David Gregory is no Tim Russert.

While Russert used to confront bullshit when it appeared, Gregory seems to encourage it. Worse yet, the post Russert version of Meet the Press is more like the Milk Toast Review Show. "Dude's always beating a dead horse," Wally is fond of saying.
