Wrenchin' on Cars

I'm in the middle of a big car repair project, and I wonder how we all look at our vehicles and what our decision point is to either repair or let the vehicle go.

Family Traditions

    Through the holidays, we continue on with events that have been continued on a regular basis. When we continue on with these traditions, how do we reinforce them to make sure they continue on, and to make an impact on those who follow us?

Doppelgängers

Have you ever met someone for the first time and ever asked them "Have we met before?"  Was it because they looked like someone you know, or was it merely a feeling?  Was it a spiritual entity making it's presence known?

Sending Aid in War

Throughout history, countries have sent other countries both supplies and support to other countries involved in conflict without being directly involved in it themselves. How do we, as the government, decide how much is enough support? How much more or less support should we send? What if our support is misappropriated? What if our values shift out of sync with the people we are supporting?

There's Something in the Water

An introduction to my new hobby. I discuss a cashless society.
(The heavy breathing you hear in the background is the dog sleeping.)

A Walk Through the Mind

Take a couple minutes out of your day to tune into the conversation.  Get some talking points, either pro or con, to share.
