Life has rules.
Some imposed (apparently you have to wear clothes at the mall) and others self-created.
In case of an opportunity to choose between grilled Brussels sprouts and ice cream, ‘choose ice cream’ is the rule.
When dealing with technology, if the next step is not immediately clear and obvious, move on to something else. That’s my new, self-created rule.
When we watch the amazing National Geographic, BBC and Discovery videos of exotic wildlife you might get the impression you just go out in a Land Rover and there they are hanging around like groupies, to be put on the big screen.
Well, surprise, surprise…don’t get your hopes up or be too confident.

The military was part of the fabric of our family. My dad, my brother, and our uncles all served, mostly during World War II. Dad went on to work for the US Army, retiring in 1979 as Civilian Commander of The Frankford Arsenal in Philadelphia. I served in the USAF from 1969-1973.
While we all served with pride, there were some very pointed differences in what happened when we returned.
