I’m Working on a Biggie

February 26, 2014

There is a reason I didn’t make my semi-deadline Monday.  It’s a semi-deadline because, when I  made the semi-promise, I inserted a loophole. I said I would TRY  to have one by each Monday.  I’m working on an in-depth “biggie” for you.  The first installment will be posted soon. I know you’ll be waiting with bated breath.  No, it isn’t spelled “baited.” We’re not talking about fishing, but about being almost breathless with anticipation.  If you already knew that, I apologize for insulting your intelligence.  If you didn’t, you had the pleasure of learning something new, and I’m happy for you.

The Positive Side of Columbus’ Biggest Problem

August 12, 2008

  It’s positive for some few people. I’ll be getting into that probably Monday. Right now I have a non-blog project that I am working on that will probably delay posting until next week. It’ll be a biggie though, so tune in Monday! That’s when you can find out if it lives up to the hype.

Welcome to Dick’s World

June 8, 2008

 

  I’m Dick and I welcome you to my world.

 

  My world, geographically, is Columbus, Fort Benning, Cumming, Smyrna, Kennesaw, Atlanta, and Athens, Georgia, Phenix City, Alabama, and Anywhere, U.S.A.

 

 That’s because I live in Columbus, which was just listed by some organization that does such things as the 4th best place in the United States to raise children. I am not sure why, but maybe one reason is because one of our Little League teams won the Little League Baseball World Series a couple of years ago. Balancing that are the low scores that too many of our public school kids are achieving on standardized tests.

 

  My son, daughter-in law, and two grandsons live at Cumming.

 

   I have stepsons, a step daughter-in-law, and step-grandchildren in Kennesaw, Atlanta, Athens, and one who drives a semi and just might call me from anywhere in the country.  

 

   I go to Smyrna a lot because my niece and her family live there.

 

    Part of this new blog of mine will be about what happens where they live since that’s part of my world.

 

   The rest will be about current events in Columbus, Georgia; Phenix City, Alabama; Georgia, Alabama, and, well, the world.

 

  It will also be about philosophy, movies, books, TV shows, music, politics and anything that I just happen to want to talk about.  

 

  Also, I am interested in you and what you think. So you are welcome to comment on any post on the blog. I just ask that you refrain from hardcore gutter language – oh, a hell or damn here and there is okay – and libelous statements. I reserve the right not to print any comment, but I don’t recall not publishing any non-spam comment on my last blog, newsmanbook.com.   

 

  Again, welcome. Please make yourself at home.
