  • May is Nevada Wildfire Awareness Month
    Nevada’s residents who live in fire-prone areas can’t just sit back and expect to have their homes and property protected from wildfire. That’s the message land management and fire fighting agencies have been putting forward for the last couple of years. Rather than sit back, residents need to take a proactive part in specific activities to prepare to survive wildfire with their property intact.

  • Two years ago, our daughter got her first computer. With software, it cost about $500. Daddy noted that her laptop, which is nothing special by today’s standards, had more computing power than all the computers in the world combined when he was her age 52 years earlier. A portable device used by an 11-year-old girl for school lessons, playing games and surfing the web had more capability than all the massive computing hardware once owned by the world’s governments, universities and large corporations. 
  • I mentioned to a gal that her new hair style was very flattering to her face. She seemed to really appreciate that I noticed. Then she says to me that she liked the highlights I had put in my hair too. Well I said thanks but those aren’t highlights, those are just gray hair and I just ha ha ha-ed it off. Then in a matter of just two days I had occasion to have my picture taken and those same “highlights” lit up the space on my head between my bangs line and the rest of my head making it look like glob of flour had exploded there.
     
  • Legal rights for animals? Not so fast. A few weeks ago, says the New York Post, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Barbara Jaffe “inadvertently bestowed human status on two chimpanzees being used for biomedical research at Stony Brook University on Long Island.”
