The Cards In Your DNA Deck

When we make babies we are not sure what they will be like. Whose eyes and hair color will they get? Will they have all 10 digits? Will their brain be well developed? Who will they look like? Most of us don’t think about what they will be like when they are old because weContinue reading “The Cards In Your DNA Deck”

Spring Wildflowers

My oldest was frustrated with something so I suggested a walk in our “woods” behind the subdivision. In parts of North Carolina we get a lovely show of early spring wild flowers. I found one than another and next thing you know it I was photographing them. It was wonderful to see the flowers fromContinue reading “Spring Wildflowers”

Reverse Roles

When we are babies, most of us have parents that care for us, teach us, guide us and give us advice on how to grow up and take care of ourselves. Parenting is the hardest job one will ever love and it is not for wusses. Once we become adults we can choose to beContinue reading “Reverse Roles”

Trees

When you type trimming the tree the first vision in your head is the Xmas tree being decorated with lights, baubles, tinsel, etc. The second kind of trimming the tree is more dangerous and apparently very expensive. Make sense – I imagine trimming really tall trees would be dangerous. I grew up with a dadContinue reading “Trees”

Korean “Corn Dogs”

Most people know what corn dogs are. In the US they are hot dogs wrapped in hushpuppy batter and deep fried on a stick. It is typical carnival food and you can even find it in the frozen food aisle of most American grocery stores. When I was a school kid in Korea in theContinue reading “Korean “Corn Dogs””

“Death Dogs”

I have lived in several different income brackets from wealthy to poverty levels. I will have to admitContinue reading ““Death Dogs””

Loving A Bipolar Spouse

Kanye and KK are always in the news. I’m not a fan of either celebrity. I don’t watch any of the KK shows or buy her products. Kanye’s music is not my cup of tea although I appreciate the hard work he may put into it. We all have preferences. However, when Kanye was diagnosedContinue reading “Loving A Bipolar Spouse”

Little Bit of Nature

We have taken a few walks in the past few days as our temperatures have hit up to 70 degrees Fahrenheit – is that not crazy for February? So here are some photos from our “woods” near the subdivision for those of you still up to your eyeballs in snow. Enjoy.

Black History IS American History

I have lived in the US since 1975 and have had the privilege of living in a mostly peaceful, safe, prosperous and dynamic environment. I am proud to be an American citizen and I am just as proud to have Korean and Hungarian heritage. I understand the difference between race, ethnicity, nationality, heritage and culture.Continue reading “Black History IS American History”
