This was written shortly after I met Jacquelyn in 1997. MOVIE MAGIC He walked alone for a day Looking at the past like a black and white movie in a small theater with cold popcorn and ancient seats with no padding. His past life convicted him of his sins Who was he to judge hers? In his movie the characters moved silently unaware sleepwalking through life speaking words to other cardboard cutouts without ears to hear or eyes to see. He wished he knew a sin-eater capable of devouring their foolish acts in an orgy of gluttony. He wanted only to test his new found understanding in the cauldron of passion next to her naked skin and to speak truths into her waiting mouth Holding tight against the tide of man against man How could he explain to her that his sins equalled hers and that his love swallowed the evil impulses that had threatened to devour them both? He wanted to sit in an air-conditioned theater holding her hand telling the truth of eternal love whispering words of passion into her waiting ears inviting her to touch him  in places only she knew how to reach.

How Are Smartphones Like Cars?

Okay  How much are you willing to spend on a smartphone? | Android Central. The next batch of top shelf Smartphones is expected to breach the $1,000 barrier. This article at Android Central asks the question: "How much is too much?". I think the better question is whether you want a 20 year old Chevy or a brand new SuperCar. Smartphones that get the job done can be had for less than $100. Smartphones that are the best available are around $1,000. My rule was middle of the road after spending years buying top of the line phones. Of course, top of the line rarely topped $600 a few years ago. However, when Jacquelyn needed a new phone, and as she was a stylus fanatic, I paid $1,000 for a new Galaxy Note 8 a year ago. Now, I am using it, and it is a pleasure. It is easily the best phone I have ever used. I also, however, as one of my back up phones, have a tiny JellyPro, which is a $125 Chinese import that runs Android 7 and has an LTE chip. Its biggest compromise is the muddy screen and the too tiny on screen keyboard. But, as I said, it gets the job done. How much are you willing to spend on a Smartphone? How much can you afford? Get Android, and you get to choose.          Related StoriesFiles Go And Google Drive - All The Storage You NeedWhatsApp Co-Founder Invests $50 Million Dollars In Signal Foundation14 Inch Windows 10S Laptop Computer For $219?

If you something to be afraid of, fear the evil or incompetent government hacks who will control future technology. Long before AI becomes self aware, humans with evil or stupid motives will control technology that can decimate the planet, and computers will be fighting other computers while under the control of humans. Can we avoid the final conflict? So far we have avoided destroying the planet with thermonuclear weapons. But, computers can kill us like frogs in a pan of water. We won't even realize we are boiled until it is too late.           Related StoriesYes, Virginia, There Is A TerminatorThe Future Of Lawyering And AI - Adapt And OvercomeDon't Fear The Robots - Fear The People Who Hype The Robopocalypse  [...]

Okay, some people thrive in a structured environment where someone else makes all the decisions. But, I believe the statistics here. A majority of Americans, and a larger majority of millennials, want freedom and autonomy in their work. Yes, I realize that self employed persons do have bosses; namely, their clients. But, many bosses make for freedom; because, if one leaves there are others to replace them. What is your freedom of choice worth?

The only piece of jewelry I wear these days is inscribed with the medieval phrase "memento mori", which is Latin for "Remember Death". Every day we need to remind ourselves of the fragility of this life. As many of you know, I was recently reminded of this fact; and, it has focused be wonderfully. It is NOT maudlin or negative or a bad thing to remember that we are mortal. In fact, it is a positive thing, because it makes us realize that our time is valuable, and to use it wisely. No, it is not wise to spend all of our time seeking pleasure, or money, or power, or influence, or the approval of others. Wisdom requires the recognition that these things are meaningless. So, if this is your last day on earth, what are you going to do with it?           Related StoriesYou Are A Creative...

Okay, SWMBO would never carry this bag; but, as a collector of purses she tolerated my collection of briefcases, messenger bags and other bags to carry my assortment of tech and paperwork and computers and accessories. I could never criticize her dozens of purses that still populate our upstairs bedroom and overflow from the shelves everywhere. But, since I have a few briefcases in my home office and law office that I mix and match depending on mood, I couldn't exactly be critical of her fetish, could I? Which brings me to this cheap Chinese bag that surprised me with its utility, and which I am carrying every day lately. While, for $25, you don't get the smoothest zippers in the world, this bag is the anti-briefcase, and I love the way it swallows up whatever gadget or document I throw at it. Don't spend hundreds of dollars on leather briefcases just to carry your stuff. Save an animal or two. Get canvas.          Related StoriesYou Are A Creative...
