Enter the net: Facebook genie conjures up pal from past life

September 6, 2012

by David Hughes

Sometimes I think a genie lives in Facebook (grin), and my weird hypothesis was recently vindicated …
Have you ever thought about a really old friend that you have not thought about for decades? Well, I got to thinking recently about friends who helped channel my life’s interests and for some reason the name Roger Dunn popped into my mind. He was a little older than me, and in some ways we were simpatico and he had all kinds of cool things in his workroom at home.

The famous bard raised the question "What's in a name?"
Shakespeare's response to his own query in "Romeo and Juliet" was "That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet."
But would it really?
When you give a child a name, you're stuck with it for life unless you go through a court proceeding or decide to change it on your own without the benefit of the legal system and that could get you into trouble on occasion.
Names tend to be cyclical, as my own would indicate.

Sense and nonsense: Search for ideal purse is no small challenge

September 6, 2012

by Lynda Hollenbeck

Finding the perfect purse is no easy task.
It's a project the faint of heart should avoid at all costs because the quest is fraught with frustration and aggravation.
Whenever I find one I really like, it's a foregone conclusion it will wear out almost by the time I get all my stuff inside.
If it's really tacky, it will last till the proverbial cows come home.
I've found that most purses are either too big, too little, too plain, too fancy, too something.
