The Rest of the Story

By boblehman / July 27, 2021

Paul Harvey was an American radio broadcaster. His program News and Comment reached as many as 24 million people each week. Harvey was best known for his famous The Rest of the Story segments. According to Wikipedia, these segments consisted of stories presented as little-known facts on a variety of subjects. But what kept your attention until the end…

Little specks

By boblehman / July 20, 2021

How often has this happened to you? You’re out and about when all of a sudden you get something in your eye. You know it’s something very small, but it is such an irritation. You do everything in your power to remove it. It takes all your effort and attention. In fact, you can’t do…

Infections

By boblehman / July 13, 2021

It’s a bit of a “rite of passage” to get stitches. I’ve had my fair share. I’m sure you have too. It is such an incredible thing to realize that our bodies have a built-in repair system. This is true on so many levels. Break a bone…it heals itself. Eat three-day-old potato salad…our body rejects…

Book titles

By boblehman / July 6, 2021

Did you know that books in the United States can have the same title, even though they are different books with different authors and different content? In other words, titles cannot be copyrighted. Therefore, two or more books can have the same title. That was a little factoid I didn’t know. Here’s how I found this out. I…

GIGO

By boblehman / June 29, 2021

GIGO was an acronym used extensively years ago. Not so much anymore. But, the principle is sound. In computer science, GIGO stands for “garbage in, garbage out”. It is the concept that flawed, or nonsense input data produces nonsense output or “garbage”. The truth of that old acronym has never been so applicable as it is today. It can be applied to…

Innocence

By boblehman / June 22, 2021

I was out walking with my family today. They brought their 4-month-old Golden Retriever with them. Fun day. One of the things making it so enjoyable was watching this puppy chase a butterfly. It was hilarious. He’d go everywhere the butterfly went and would twist and contort trying to reach it. It never did happen.…

How Not To Die

By boblehman / June 15, 2021

I have a book on my desk that I’ve borrowed from my son and daughter-in-law. It’s called “How Not To Die.” Interesting title right? Actually, it’s a book about food. Food that’s good for you and some food…not so much. I got to thinking…” that might not be a bad title for the Bible.” John…

The “governors” in our lives

By boblehman / June 8, 2021

Do you know what a “governor” is? The obvious answer is of course. It is a person who is the elected head of a public institution…like a state. But that’s not where I’m going with this blog. There’s a different definition. “It is a mechanism that controls the speed in a machine.” The intent of…

Blind Arrogance

By boblehman / June 1, 2021

One of the biggest mistakes we all make is what I’ll call blind arrogance.  What I mean by that is simple. It’s false confidence. We believe that we know the future and in some ways, think we can control it. For all intents and purposes, the pandemic has brought most of us back to reality.…

Vulnerable love

By boblehman / May 25, 2021

I grew up in a great family, but my folks got divorced when I was in 4th grade. I, like many kids from broken homes, was caught in the middle of the mess. I remember my mom confiding in me as a 10-year-old and saying, “I’ll never be hurt again.” She was talking about relationships…
