A welcome to readers
As a resident of this planet for more than four fifths of a century, I have enjoyed both successes and disappointments in a wide variety of vocations, avocations, and life experiences. This blog satisfies my desire to share some thoughts and observations--trenchant and prosaic--with those who are searching for diversions which are interesting, poignant and occasionally funny. I also plan to share recommendations about good/great movies I've watched and books and articles which I've found particularly mind-opening, entertaining, instructive. In addition, I can't pass up the opportunity to reflect publicly on how I am experiencing the so-called Golden Years. Write anytime:

I subscribe to Delancyplace.com blog and check it every day. The author's tastes generally agree with mine and I have bought and read many books based on his recommendations. Today, he encloses a list of the best 12 books of the last ten years, and then follows it with a list of the "best of the rest." For readers, I heartily recommend this list. I own and have read many of these books myself and have several more in my "to do" pile. Have fun.
