Granted, I have a golf and travel show so I love golf. But when I play golf, I play to be good or to get better. Someone posted a motivating saying: whatever you are, be the best at it. I hope that is me. I try to go low each time. I want to break […]

Trump President for The Computer Age, The Lazy, The Unhealthy?

by John May 4, 2016




(This is another look at the Trump phenomena now that he has nearly wrapped up the GOP nomination.
