The talents of Thomas Jefferson

Wisdom from our forefathers…  How was it that so many of our Congressmen had a difference in opinion, but believed in the same principles?  The principle of capitalism needs to remain alive and well in America.  Our grandfathers knew that necessity was the mother of invention, and they went to work to create!  America is the land of creativity!  We nurtured the arts and the creative talents that made America the land of inventions. We need to be creative again in a big way!   Things actually can be made in America still, and we know a lot about marketing.  Keeping […]

The Royal Wedding

I remember in 1981, when I got up very early while it was still dark.  I wanted to see Lady Diana Spencer marry Prince Charles.  It was a wonderful courtship and the wedding did not disappoint us.  I was a young bride myself at the time.  We watched them have children together, heirs to the throne.  It was a beautiful thing.  The Queen could see life, and her mother was still alive too.  It is fun to see your bloodline thrive.  The Monarchy has a place in history and it helped early man survive and evolve.  The Monarchy still has

Are you ready to travel?

We just got our new US Passport in the mail, and it is beautiful.  I’ve had a passport since I was 13, and it made me feel like a global citizen.  When I traveled in Europe the blue USA Passport was like traveling on the “gold card.”  You were treated well, and they knew we were a secure nation of good people.  Europe wanted our travelers there!  Many of us had DNA roots in Europe.  Back in that day we checked “white” on the paperwork and forms.  Today I’m a EuroAmerican!  The new Passport ID Cards are very good too.

Why we didn’t need Obamacare.

In 1996 we had Kennedy-Kassebaum which was intended to fix the health care problem. It gave self employed the Medical Savings Account, a forerunner to the newer Health Savings Account. “They” were paranoid too many self employed would take advantage of this new tool, so they capped the number at 700,000 eligible participants in the country. We never got near that much participation initially and they have tinkered with it ever since. There are so many rules and regulations that continue to bog down “the system” and make it so honest men can’t comply. Kennedy-Kassebaum Law Means Greater Fraud Scrutiny

A Proud American

If you could stick together, as 87 Proud Patriotic Americans, committed to old fashion values, and not sell out for cash and power, would you? We have that group right now in our new freshman congressmen. We must return to the vision that Benjamin Franklin showed us when he gave away money to a university, to hold and manage for 100 years before they used it. He was brilliant, to show us compounding interest grows geometrically. But so does debt, and we all know that lesson now. We all need to brush up on our history lessons. My son’s 8th

A fabulous use of technology for a community…

When we were growing up, the ability to “get around” provided the freedom in life. It was transportation. The ability to get around beyond your own feet! It quickly moved from horse, to wagon and train. In Pasadena, CA Henry Huntington brought us the Pacific Electric streetcar in the 1930’s that revolutionized Southern California. Our last visit through Dallas airport gave us a chance to ride the SkyLink. It was such a great use of transportation and a way to link a community. I wanted to share photos so you could envision the future with me! Our Universities and educational
