Alaskan Bush Pilot Screws Up Big Time! That Would Be Me!

Saturday, February 14th, 2015   12:48 pm |  Category:   Hobbies/Sports, Life   |  Add Comment  | Author:     bio

I applied sufficient power and began the careful, slow rough taxi to the very end of the short, remote gravel bar about 100 miles west of Anchorage, Alaska. The airplane lurched and staggered over softball-sized rocks as I slowly picked my way along. While the main landing gear was quite sturdy, the small tailwheel in …more

Super Bowl in My Backyard

The tension in the room was palpable.   Game on the line, just under a minute to go, second and goal at the one. The Seattle Seahawks one yard away from securing their second consecutive Super Bowl championship. All eyes were on the big screen TV at the end of the room. Most were sitting …more

“Live first, write afterwards.” “If I Only Knew….” Glimpses & Reflections John Galsworthy 1937 London, Toronto William Heineman   Multitasking and mobile technology, efforts to save time and get more work done, don’t leave much time to mull things over which is crucial for writers: we need time to daydream, drive without talking on phones. …more

The Spirit of 76

Sunday, September 14th, 2014   10:58 am |  Category:   Hobbies/Sports, Life   |  Add Comment  | Author:     bio

My motivation for writing, producing and narrating a documentary on the history of the United States of America was simple. In a survey of graduates from a high school (I can’t remember which one), over 50% of those interviewed believed during World War II, America & Germany were allies against Russia. They missed several other …more

Circumnavigating Eastern North America by Boat

Saturday, September 6th, 2014   8:19 pm |  Category:   Hobbies/Sports, Life, Travel   |  Add Comment  | Author:     bio

Buying a motor yacht and planning to circumnavigate Eastern North America with little or no experience with boats is a little wacky. Our first and only real boating experience a few years earlier had been chartering a thirty-foot faux tug and cruising through the Trent-Severn Waterway in Ontario, Canada, with Eva’s sister, Lelia, and her …more

Cycling from Yorktown, VA to Washington State began as a fund-raiser for my non-profit organization, the Senior Retirement Project which provides in-home mental health counseling to seniors and their adult care givers. Emotional issues such as depression, anxiety, or feelings of being overwhelmed are not related to aging itself, rather, as one age’s challenging life …more

Many people think of genealogy as names and dates, which it is. But it can be so much more! Our ancestors lived through difficult times and under circumstances hard to imagine. They made good and bad decisions, had successes and failures, experienced love and heartbreak, and had moments of joyous pride and numbing shame. They …more

First of all let me say, Art is FUN! Not only is it fun, but I find in my classes that people enjoy getting together and doing art, sometimes creating lifelong friends. Most of my students are seniors, from 50 to 98. It’s funny, ages begin to blur when you have things like art in …more
