Welcome to my blog. I hope that I give y’all something interesting & valuable enough to read and talk about that you’ll come back more than once 🙂

A bit about me:

  • Proud Son Of New Jersey 64 years and still going strong
  • entrepreneur
  • strong believer in science & facts
  • happy old white guy, not scared of or threatened by things like race, other people’s sexuality, etc.
  • a grandson of immigrants, and I’m not frightened of immigrants either.  Especially the ones who need to get here the most, you know, like what it says on the plaque on the Statue of Liberty:
    • Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

Terms & Conditions

Always follow “The Golden Rule” – treat everyone else the way that you’d like to be treated.  Flames, personal attacks and general meanness will be moderated straight into the trash bin, and your IP address may well be blocked and your registration revoked.  Be kind to each other.

When I was A Young Man, I was given some very valuable advice – If you want to be treated like a Chief, don’t act like a Clown.  That advice has never let me down.

Please be certain of your facts before posting.  When I worked as a research assistant at Citibank’s Economics department, I was taught to triple-source all of my information – that is, I had to provide 3 independent, reputable sources.  Rest assured that I will follow that procedure when I post.  I’m not saying that you should be quite that stringent, but at least try to Google your information before commenting or replying.  Sources like Twitter or Facebook may not be entirely accurate sometimes.

Privacy Policy

Simple.  I will NEVER share, sell or otherwise disseminate ANY of your information with anyone.  Never.  I will never ask for any private information – just username & password. I encourage you to use https://www.grc.com/passwords.htm to create your username & password, such as Username = Ds8NP9eyZJOAMQ8l and Password = Ck{RXph3cijRxx(LLJ@Tb@_QcjbNJicV. You’ll never remember these, so stick them in a document and copy-and-paste.  More about this under “internet privacy & security”.
