  1. The Struggle

    Over the past three weeks several people I work with have been hospitalized with one or other aliment. I have been a regular visitor to two of them specifically and try to just "be there" so that I may contribute a little to them getting/feeling better. It has been difficult in being a regular visitor. I am not really close with them and have little "connection" with them, so once the obvious is said there is little else to say.

    One of the patients I visit ...

  2. Day/Night switch anyone?

    I have a situation at work where the day/night switches have been stolen from certain spotlights. Now these things were installed to save electricity, time and the schlep of having to switch the spotlights on and off. Obviously they are in an area where the lights are required to prevent theft and malicious damage.

    So how ironic that they stole the switches to use in their own endeavor to keep their own stuff safe. I mean how screwed is that? I steal your stuff to keep my stuff ...

  4. Afghanistan strategy

    As an Armchair Colonel bucking for promotion to Armchair General, it is important that I demonstrate the strategic thinking worthy of this exalted office. I have chosen Afghanistan because it is topical.

    The Americans must back-off. In all their negotiations they have played to the international gallery, rather than being sincere with the Afghani’s. With their carpet-bagging mentality, they have emphasized the (American) semantic and legal aspects of their negotiations to international ...

  5. American Risk...Freedom...What a crock.

    When the Republicans snipe at the Democrats they generally use Obama’s health reforms. “Creeping socialism” they trumpet. “An erosion of risk taking and freedom of the Great American Way”. This is absolute rubbish and the opposite is true. I would go further and say that as well as universal health care there should be universal education. Imagine the freedom and enhanced risk taking of individuals if these burdens were removed.

    I have direct experience of this. When my wife and I ...
