Welcome to my Blog

This landing page will give me a chance to better serve the readers. I have different interests and as such, I find myself writing about many things. My mainstays are aviation and writing (imagine that). Sometimes, life in general gets me going, especially when there is something in the news that is absurd, strange, or extremely newsworthy. Don’t just read what I have written – respond! Make a comment! Start a discussion. That is one of the reasons for this blog – to share ideas. If you would like to know more about me, checkout my about page.

Here are my lastest blogs:

A Stand Up Man Many Americans learned last night, some this morning, that actor Robin Williams had passed at the age of 63.

Emergency Landings. Another tragedy on a Florida beach involving a general aviation airplane and a forced landing.

Got Student Loans? The student loan situation is the next big bubble to bust. Students everywhere have concerns with making those payments after walking across the stage.

Pilots and Weather. One of the most important reasons we fly is the weather. Going up and looking at the weather ranks in the upper 15 percent.

Typewriters. For the young ones, the question is, “Have you ever used a typewriter?” For the more experienced, the statement is,”Man! We’re glad we don’t have to use those anymore!”

Veteran Airshow Fans. What is so important about attending gatherings of like-minded people?

Trees, Shade, and Friendships. Meeting new friends, old friends, and enjoying the pleasure of their company.

For my friends who would like to know more about writing and publishing, here are some tips that I hope help, along with a bit of general knowledge about book publishing.

For pilots in general, here are my blogs about flying.

For the many intrigued about aviation history, check out these writings.

      Jeanne, it was my pleasure. That flight with Joe happened in the late 1970s and his generosity of spirit, his graciousness, and his unbridled enthusiasm for old airplanes has stayed with me all these years.

  2. My two interests are also writing and aviation. I’m amazed to find your blog. It is wonderful. Your posts are so interesting that I feel that I could learn so much by reading your posts. I am new to blogging and hope you will alow me to ask questions.
    Your post about students and debt made me think about this problem for young people. It is also a problem for grandparents who want to help out.

      Unfortunately, too many of our young are dealing with the problem of high student loan debt. My hope with this blog is that some of the imaginative ones will figure out a way to get rid of the debt earlier in thier lives rather than later.

      Thanks for the compliments,
