    William Menn has been living on the streets of Elk Grove, California, for five years. He once had a business, but he will only say he didn't lose it because of COVID. He fell off his bike recently, and his arm is in a sling; he has a broken collar bone and two cracked ribs. He didn't whine or complain about it, and he didn't ask for money or food. But I offered. And delivered.

    Our One-On-One happened because he was sle...

    World War I officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919. BUT!  The FIGHTING  ended seven months before that date when the Allies and Germany agreed to an Armistice. The Armistice happened on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. HaHA! For that reason, Nov. 11, 1918, was always considered the end of the "BIG WAR." The "War to End All Wars!" WWI. 

    That is why we c...

    Communicating with Grown Children - Communicating with Parents

    Let's all agree. Unless you have a perfect relationship, asking for a favor from anybody is not easy.

    Explaining why I have no desire to be a GREAT, and I mean wonderful, grandma requires a long, long, long ...
