EIGHT, NO, SEVEN MINUTES FROM NOW, THE GREAT PLACES BLOGMASTER/BOOMER CLOCKS ANOTHER YEAR

Posted by: Jeremy McKenna on 10/28/2009



As the big hand moves inexorably to the 12 on the clock, the Great Places Blogmaster/Boomer, now headed to late middle age, reflects.  "There were the Kennedy and MLK assasinations, Vietnam, the Chicago 7 and Watts; Jimmy Carter and the Bushes.  There was Camelot, Reagonomics, 'supply-side' economics and the Laffer Curve--whatever the hell THAT was.  We've lived through Karl Rove and Alberto Gonzales, the $700+ billion Bailout, a recession that's probably 
deepening instead of receding, two simultaneous wars, with others--Pakistan, and maybe North Korea--on the horizon, and a wunderkind President who's promised us "Hope" and "Change," but so far has delivered little of either.

    • An old song states: "The best things in life are free." Perhaps that is not so ... maybe it should play: "The best things in life are earned." Surely, in your case, you deserve the blessing of a good wife, your sweet soulmate -- Kathleen! Thanks for your wonderful message. We couldn't agree more! Bob and Carolee

    • The quality of you blog posts--not to mention the idea and execution of your entire site--is proof that, like the best vintages, some only hit their strides over time! Sorry about the mixed metaphor, but you get the picture. Oops! There goes another one.

    • Well said. Love and partnership are a gift to be cherished and treasured, more and more valuable with each year. Enjoy your day and your beautiful talented wife.

    • You have the love of your good woman. I have the love of mine. No doubt, it's more than either of us have earned or deserve. It leads me to the conclusion that we get through this complex life by luck alone....or maybe just by not giving up.
