Coffee and an ill Eagle

“I’ve learned that transparency may not help you go where you want to go But it will help keep you from going where you’re not supposed to go, And it will always help you go where you’re supposed to go” *Skeete* Not long ago, as I read morning Headlines over my coffee, and observed

Coffee and Cauliflower Racism

As I am sipping my really good cup of Ethiopian Arabica, medium roast, coffee this morning, I’ve been considering something I heard a young representative say as she was recording a presentation for one of the social networks on “green” and “racist” vegetables. Admitted

Good Coffee, Bullies, and a Coin’s Hard Edge

While sitting and enjoying my coffee this morning, I’ve been considering something… I’m pretty particular about taking time to get the best coffee I can. It’s worth it!  I’ve been considering the things I like other than coffee, too!   For me, it’s important to find the best in whatev

Coffee, A Shot of Scotch and Jellybeans!

“I’ve learned…Rushing Judgment over False CausesBrings False JusticeAnd a Harsh Reality”*Skeete* Coffee with a shot of Scotch can be quite good, and while coffee with an occasional jellybean usually works, some jellybeans… will ruin a great cup of coffee.  A decent Scotch can give cof

Coffee and Historical Hysterics

A few days ago, while enjoying a great cup of coffee, and viewing news clips on “current” events, I recognized a common theme among some news sites, and felt they needed addressing. Our constitution, and some of the founding fathers of this nation and framers of our constitution were com

Learning, Processes, Curves and Coffee

Although I have approximately 28 years of military service, my career spanned almost 40 years.      As I sit, enjoying my coffee, thinking about it, I can ‘see‘ the tremendous changes our military services have progressed through.   When I joined the Marines during the Vietnam era

Coffee, Identity Crisis, and Poetry

As I’m sitting and drinking my third cup of coffee this morning, I realize, while listening to the news in the background, that I may not be who I think I am… I hear the “BLM’ers”, and the “ANTIFA hawkers”, and some “Squad”, all telling me what I must think like to be as good [

Choices and Poking the Friendly Bear

After viewing the recording, (both prior to, and up to) of the slaying of George Floyd, and subsequently, searching the ‘Net’,  and seeing many similar instances, that haven’t risen to the notoriety that Officer Chauvin brought upon himself and his fellow officers, I’d like to offer up some

BREAKFAST TIME

This morning, I saw on Facebook, a post and image about  “…paying back evil with evil…”,  in referring to authorities working to address the “civil” unrest occurring after the death of George Floyd. In this image, we note advice against repaying evil with more evil, along with

Bullies and Others

I have a long time acquaintance, an old friend I haven’t seen in a few years… Recently I found out that he works for a large company, in engineering, and is involved in Root Cause Analysis, or RCA. Basically, I think, RCA helps us to address a problem; its purpose is to help us find […]

Unjust Actions, Injustice and Blind Justice

In a post about George Floyd, I referred to Tony Timpa of Dallas… There are many other “incidents” like Tony Timpa and George Floyd, where crimes, committed by “Rotted-out”, corrupt Officers, who are ‘protected’ by Senior Supervision, usually lie unanswered;

COFFEE, RANDOM THOUGHTS, AND BEFORE & AFTER “JIM”

I've learned that...staying away from trouble is far better than Praying when I get into trouble*Skeete* So… I’m sitting in my ‘Coffee Nook’ this morning, chatting it up, with my “Barista” son, who is ‘laid off’ because of the virus. As I was sitting and enjoying coffee, while he was

I was sitting and drinking a nice cup of coffee, and started writing, then had another cuppa, as this subject is very challenging for me, and I’ve ended up writing through my weekly shot of scotch… When my friends ask me what my political affiliation is I simply say I’m Independent, and that

Right now, I’m into my third cup of coffee, while my fingers ‘blaze’ along at my top typing speed of just north of 40 wpm – Can you imagine driving 40mph on the freeway?…heh!   Well I’m striving for more, and perhaps, by years end, I’ll achieve the Victory

So… As I’m sitting having my daily shot or two of my really good coffee, I’m thinking… about where I’ve been, and how I got… to where I am… And… I think it might just be a matter of choices…  Choosing to walk an honorable path in life certainly helped, but even though I did [&hell

When we travel cross-country, on the seas, on through any country, it helps to have a navigation, or travel guide.    It also helps to have some understanding about the Laws of any place we visit! For this coffee break, I want to introduce someone I first learned about through an early, black and
