For Justice . . .

. . . we must go to Don Corleone”.  

Earlier today, I was alerted that one of my  favorite movies, The Godfather was released 45 years ago, yesterday on  March 24th, 1972.

This afternoon, it plays as background music as I do chores around the house.

It’s all business, nothing personal.

Below is the opening scene, featuring Amerigo Bonasera, the undertaker.

An Idea To Be Pondered

And unlike the ice cream version, the whiskey version could be a year round endeavor.

This might be a less stressful version of earning a living.

Initial market research indicates  my first route should be in the area of Granville, OH.

On Truth

“A man was meant to be doubtful about himself, but be undoubting about the truth; this has been exactly reversed”

 G. K. Chesterton

How true. How sadly true.

Business 101

I bet there is some writer at the Harvard Business Review who when they see this, wishes they came up with this quote.

“The key to being a good manager is keeping the people who hate me away from those who are still undecided.”  Casey Stengel

Another Voice Silenced

The Presurfer Blog
2000 – 2017

It is with sadness that I confirmed the death of a blogger that I read almost daily and referenced many times over the years.

Gerard Vlemmings started The Presurfer Blog back in  September of 2000 and that made him an early adapter. I sometimes referred to him as “My source in the Netherlands”

Lifted from the VA Viper

“Another bright spot in the blogosphere is no more. Gerard Vlemmings of Tilburg, Netherlands, ran his blog The Presurfer for over 16 years. Less than a month ago, he stopped his daily postings due to illness, which proved to be cancer. His last post was on February 17, and a couple of days ago, his nephew Fam commented to let us know that Gerard passed away on Saturday, February 25th and his funeral service is tomorrow. I cannot find an online obituary, but that may be due to the language barrier. Gerard was 67. He will be sorely missed”.

May his memory be eternal.

Staying Put For Now

Could not find this with a Black Lab, but you get it.

It seems that we have been thrown a few innings worth of curve balls this week and my trip to NJ  has to be postponed.  Hopefully, I can make it next week, but that is still up in the air. Lot’s  to talk about, but only when the time is right, which is not yet.

Luckily, the dogs are here and those that have bigger dogs, know how true this cartoon is.
