Manchester...I’ve never been to England, but my mother’s Grandfather was born there. I’m not a student of the British empire, or a fan. I did study sales management at Philadelphia Textile in 1980 at night. This was as close as I ever got to the yarn business of my mother’s family.
Technology spun fibers into a global enterprise, and that’s how my Great Grandfather got to Warsaw, and his son and five siblings were born there. The family ran mills. Marriage to a mill…Continue

i was visiting North Carolina a few weeks ago and Rich, my old bandleader, handed me a CD. I'm on one cut. Just before I moved north, he befriended an older musician by the name of Juma Sultan, a percussionist. I never got to play with him though the rest of the band did. Recently they put together a CD with him on it. One song they wanted to do was the old Eric Burdon song Spill The Wine, which my old band has put into its rotation on occasion. On a previous visit, Rich asked me to lay down…Continue
In October our Tibetan Spaniel Milo developed a cough. Ten days later he was dead of an enlarged heart. Judy and I were devastated. Milo was fourteen, but our previous Tibbies had lived to almost twenty.
Judy had sworn up and down that Milo would be our last dog. Within hours of Milo’s passing we were talking about a puppy. I contacted…Continue
Dixie Bowser and my mother did not get along. My mother was from Cranston, Rhode Island...and her Father was born somewhere around Warsaw. Although I never heard her say it, she was raised a racist. I did not know this but Dixie Bowser did. Dixie Bowser scared the hell out of me...she might have been the first Black woman I ever saw. Dixie Bowser fixed bicycles, but not mine.
My mother never did figure out New Jersey, or history for that matter. Her father retired at…Continue

I just read this (in response to one of Ron Powell's comments):
"How do you propose to get masses of White people to make the necessary adjustments?
Understand that I am by no means implying that I don’t already participate in that…
In 1947 the Roswell Incident was dismissed as the discovery of a weather balloon on Mac Brazel’s ranch and all the excitement quickly defused thanks to General Ramey’s quick thinking from Carswell AFB in Ft. Worth, Texas, but one…Continue

Wall Street and the One Percent crowd are so scared of a Warren presidency, that regardless of who emerges as the Democratic standard bearer in 2020, she and her economic, financial, and tax policy proposals will be a primary target of the Republican Party whether Trump runs or…
As I spend more time dredging up the decades without notes, years, whole years blend into a mush...the years that were turbulent swallow up the the ones leading and following. I struggle to hear them, those years.
Yet, I am grateful to have what recall I do...after no less than eight concussions, the two of them from my head busting windshields and concussions were not the worst of my head injuries. I am grateful to have survived at all, when I remember to…Continue
