The Top Dick’s World Posts in 2010

January 3, 2011

What is interesting to me about writing for a blog is the fact that posts keep getting read over time. WordPress sent me a list of the top posts of 2010 and the top five were first posted in 2009. The number one article about William Calley’s apology for the My Lai Massacre in the Vietnamese War got even more visits in 2010 than when it ran the first time in 2009, when it also topped the list.  WordPress said that illustrates that my writing has “staying power.” That’s nice to know.

Here are the top 5:

1 AN EMOTIONAL WILLIAM CALLEY SAYS HE IS SORRY – August 2009
 
2 Savannah Revisited  #2 – June 2009

3 Behind the Scenes at IMAX at Patriot Park, Home of the New National Infantry Museum –  March 2009

4 Go to the National Infantry Museum at Least Once by Yourself – August 2009

5 Romance of the Rails – July 2009

PODCAST: “IT’S NEWS TO ME”

April 9, 2009

A PODCAST FROM THE WORLDWIDE DICK’S WORLD BROADCASTING NETWORK 

  Thanks to newsy blogs folks can get information about some interesting events, people and places they don’t get in the mainstream media.   I came across something interesting to anyone who has ever been influenced by a band director.  It’s something that is right here in Columbus and I didn’t even know it was here.

Now,  to learn more about it,  simply go to my podcast link.  (I have to do a podcast occasionally just so I don’t forget how to get it online.)

A Personal Note

December 29, 2008

I’m back.  I’ve not posted anything for days because I have been ill from a reaction to a sulpher drug and just didn’t feel like it. I’m a little better so I can talk with you some again.

Though not feeling well at all, I have been able to enjoy the Christmas holidays with my family. My son Rick, his wife Marian and my two grandsons, along with one  of my grandson’s  girl friend, all came down from Cumming, Georgia to be with me on Christmas evening.  We gave each other gifts, but once again I was struck with the fact that the real gift is being with someone at Christmas. We had a grand time.

And I had another grand time when my four stepsons, one wife and three grandchildren came down Saturday to celebrate the holidays. Again, the greatest gift was simply their presence, and the delicious Mexican chicken soup in which one sqeezes fresh limes, with some killer cornbread, which was prepared by one stepson.

Hope  your Christmas was a great one,  and let me wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

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.

MONDAY IS FOR-SURE POSTING DAY – THIS MONDAY: COLUMBUS NOW HAS ITS “IT”

July 10, 2008

  It would nice to able to post something everyday on Dick’s World, but, alas, I don’t want to sacrifice quality for quantity. That’s why I promise a fresh post every Monday, though I will post some things on other days.  Please plan to join me on Monday, but if you miss, it’s okay to tune in later in the week. The post will still be on the site, along with possibly some new ones.  

 

Thanks for visiting,
