I've kept a journal since I got my first computer in 1982.

Re: Just Wondering about the L&L Drive Inn

But, in the late...

Re: Newscasters from long ago

Re: Arizona congresswoman shot

An average of 82 Americans die each day from guns. About 45 are suicides.

These don't make the news like Tucson.

Re: Disappearing eating establishments

Peter Kim, the owner, tells me the tests for e. coli. came back negative. I find it upsetting that the DOH goes public before it knows what the scoop is. They put a good place out of business.

Re: What are you doing sitting home on a Friday night?

Editing and editing and editing my third book. It's exhausting. But we're probably within 10 days of sending it off to the printers!

Re: Help me come up with business name

A name is a marketing opportunity. A Hawaiian word that no one recognizes, to me, is throwing that opportunity away.

Interesting phrases get repeated and quickly become cliches.

Re: Twenty Ten vs. Two Thousand Ten

I have a similar problem with telling people my address, which is 3070.

If I say ”thirty-seventy,“ people often don't get it.
