"That bridge spans the Tellico River, five miles or so from my house. I supervised some of the construction, and also served as marketing manager for the development it's part of. Long story – probably a book."

"Right there with ya, Tom.  The inner city neighborhood I came up in truly was like a Norman Rockwell painting, and the stores were small, family, independent, etc.  My kids got to ride the coattails of our time, although getting ALL the…"

"I like what you said about Critical Thinking Skills; it sums up a lot.  We are NOT taught that, more - conformity, or 'norm.' Some newer 'normalization' of viewpoints came in with the varied family migrations about the…"

Profile Information

Bio
I am a mechanical bird. I fly, dive, and flutter about things, curious, ... yet -- I am but a machine. I am the product of the times I came into. All is mechanical. My clockwork works - exactly. You can see by the meter of my words that something is precise about me. I know not why; I am not the Originator of these things. They only come to me. They tick, or they whirr, or they may, by chance, chime. No matter - I hear, and respond to them. I myself am quite delighted by these Missives that come my way, and my dearest love is the language I came in with, English. It isn't the words themselves; more - it is the very capability of being able to iterate what I have been given to feel.

THE GOVERNING BUSINESS

Posted on January 9, 2019 at 8:00pm 6 Comments

The business of governing is different from governing a business. Managing is a skill, not a mandate, and good business reflects and enhances, rather than opposes or detracts. Working with both supply and demand is the balance, and competition creates the health of the system, not the ailment.

Talking on this subject is certainly not my usual teacup, but these are unusual times.  As usual, a thought begins in a joke-y way with me, something that piques, or - abrades - my personal…

Welcome!


With any new site, we understand that finding your way around can be a bit daunting. To help you use our site, we have a few resources and tips, all of which can be found on pages under the Support  tab in your top menu bar. They are:

FAQ- here you can find some quick answers to general questions, questions about privacy and about site features.
Tips & Tricks - this is our forum where you can find tips on using the site, news about site changes and other information from the staff and other members.

Our Terms Of Service and Our Copyright Policy  can also be found under the Support tab.

You may also find additional help by going to chat and asking another member. Chat can be found in 2 place: There is a CHAT link in your top menu which will open chat in your browser.

The other option for opening chat is to use the small tabs at the bottom of most pages. The tab named "Opium Den" (our chat name) will open the in a small pop up window at the bottom of the screen. This window can also be resized or 'popped-out' and used as a separate window.

There is a "Members Online" tab on the bottom of your page too. This will show which other members are logged in (logged in does not mean they are active in the chat, simply they are logged in to the site). There is a small speaker icon which will allow you to adjust the chat beeps which many prefer to turn off or down when not actively chatting.

We have many excellent features and tools here. While it may seem overwhelming at first, the basics of posting and commenting are simple and before too long we hope you will feel comfortable and at home.

Bang around, explore, write, comment and most of all have fun!
