Ten Years

A year ago I penned this remembrance about the tragedy of September 11, 2001. I offer the poem to you again on this tenth year of remembrance. I keep meaning to submit it somewhere for publication but never seem to do it, unsteady in my belief that it merits same. I hope the sentiment touches the readers of this blog and does honor to the fallen.

Raffle For Apple Products (A 503-c Non-profit)

Well, nothing like a little gamblin' to bring me out of my blog stupor. And, finally my new business position is normalizing. So, back to being a Lucky Dog.

Have I got a deal for you! A group I am associated with, The Rhine Research Center, a 503-c non-profit, is holding a fundraising raffle with winners receiving a variety of Apple products. First Prize is an Apple Mac Airbook.

Tickets are only five bucks each and even if we sell the 5,000 tickets we hope to sell your odds are great at 1/2 of 1%. That beats the Lottery odds and you help a famous and important group continue important research into the human consciousness.

By visiting the Rhine website you can purchase tickets utilizing a credit card or pay pal and your tickets will be scanned to you. Tickets are only five bucks, buy as many as you wish and you don't have to be present to win. The drawing will be held September 17, 2011 in the evening.

While you are on the site buying a bunch of tickets look around a bit. There is much interesting information and I invite you to become involved if even only through the web site.

So, from one Lucky Dog to another I ask that you support this cause. And pass the opportunity on via your blog and your friends.

My extra sensory perception tells me one of my readers will win! Thank you on behalf of The Rhine Research Center. And thank you from the Dog.


Regrets, Big And Small

Friday the 13th is an ominous day to resign from a firm and join another. But on May 13, 2011 that's just what this Lucky Dog did. I didn't want to. I was and am very proud of my association with my old firm. Yet, it had to be. It had to be.
On my 60th birthday my friends at work wore bow ties, as I often do, in my honor. They drew the line at wearing braces, too...
What a wonderful branch I worked in. Good friends made. I miss them terribly. My solace lies in quantum physics, black holes and time travel: in some other plane of the universe I am still there, happy and excited as the first day seven years ago. Doing well. Yes, doing well.

With that said, my new gig is invigorating and challenging. And comes with a comfortable office, more autonomy and a client associate devoted just to me.

I am a Lucky Dog.
