Friday's Musings

Pushing back the frontiers of ignorance.............................

Greetings from Chapel Hill NC. Some week! My son-in-law was made CEO of a very large insurance company in Washington DC. His son, my oldest grandson was the first in history to be graduated from the University of Maryland with three majors in four years - Neuro Physiology, Psychology and Micro Biology. Cum Laude in ALL THREE!

He has been accepted for the 8 year MD/PhD at Maryland, Wake Forest, University of Virginia, Stanford and University of North Carolina and we are re-looking at his top several choices, hence my appearance in Chapel Hill.


Mary's Marauding Mutterings................................

There are two kinds of people, those who do the work and those who take the credit. Try to be in the first group; there is less competition there.

My life so far has been a long series of things I wasn't ready for.

Ten out of ten people die so it's best not to take life too seriously

Allow me to introduce my selves

Better living through denial

More "Laws of Life"...................................

Law of the Alibi: If you tell the boss you were late for work because you had a flat tire, the very next morning you will have a flat tire. I think this is called "Karma"

Variation Law: If you change lanes (traffic lanes), the one you were in will start to move faster than the one you are in now (works every time).

Law of Close Encounters: The probability of meeting someone you know increases when you are with someone you don't want to be seen with.

Law of the Result: When you try to prove to someone that a machine won't work, it will.


That's it from your embedded reporter deep in the south (None of these folks believe they lost the civil war - they just took an extended R&R )
