Do you know where your dongle is?

"I'm afraid your dongle is missing."

"Is that bad?"

"Yes. Yes it is. Your device will no longer work. You should always keep track of your dongle!"


"So my dongle is important then?"


"Yes. It certainly is. A man should always know where his dongle is at all times. I check my dongle each day to be sure it is functioning properly."

"Gollee!"

"It is only responsible to know about your dongle and about how to keep it safe."


"OK. Thank you."


"You're welcome. And remember, make sure to keep track of your dongle at all times."

Dr. Seuss Flower

If God ever asked Dr. Seuss to design a flower, it would have been the Bull Thistle. With it's large size, thorns, fluffy purple head and parachute seeds, it surely fills the bill.

Which Lives Matter?

I can't help but notice that when a child gets caught in gang crossfire, there is no protest. When an African-American is shot by another African-American, there is no protest. But when a black life is taken by a police officer, people are lying down on the freeway. If I take a step back and look at that picture, it seems that a lot of emphasis is being put on a little symptom of a much larger societal problem. But, that's just my opinion and if I disagree with the protest I might be called a racist. Still, regardless of what "color" the child is (Note* my biracial child says that we are all brown), it breaks my heart when one gets injured or killed. And it hurts my faith in humanity when no one stops (traffic) to cry with me.
