An Open letter to my adult kids, and my wife:   to John, Tom, Kevin, Kathy, Anne      This note is an apology for something I should have known about, and told you about, long ago.   Having grown up in cold, windy Chicago, and lived in the north most of my life, I should have tried out a […](image)

We Are Back!gregquill

OK, it’s been a three-plus-month vacation from the blog, and now we are back. We finished the assignment in Texas.

Look For The Silver Lininggregquillline

We should always look for the silver lining on the cloud of doom. The jury found Casey Anthony not guilty of murder and the other felonies. So how could there be a silver lining to that? Maybe we’ll see a lot less of Nancy Grace now.(image)

In fact, they remind me of Captain Jack Aubrey and his friend Stephen Maturin in the novels by Patrick O’Brian.

OK, I tried the retirement thing. Since November 2010, I have been “retired” at my place in Florida, and it has been fine. Social Security isn’t much, and my small investments have had to bridge serious shortages. But Lacy and I have really relaxed. Now it is time to go back to work, and really […](image)
