Posted by mcm0704 on January 22, 2020 |

Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with a fun story about business – big city and small town. Like Slim and Herb and many others, I prefer small town and mom and pop shops.

The Rapture? A War? None of the Above?

Posted by mcm0704 on January 10, 2020 |

The news over the weekend, and through much of this week, has been full of reports about the killing of Qasem Soleimani, an Iranian Major General in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

Chasing Windmills

Posted by mcm0704 on December 13, 2019 |

Today I’m sharing a column I wrote back in the mid 80s for the Texas Catholic Newspaper where I was a regular columnist. I found this copy when I was digging through some old folders looking for something else, and I was surprised and dismayed to see that much of what I wrote back then […]

My whole family are avid readers, and we often gift each other with books, especially at this holiday season. It’s an extra bonus when we can get an autographed book, and the ones I have reside on a special shelf in my bookcase. When I moved, almost two years ago now, I had to downsize […]
