A Million Little Pieces Of My Mind

Most Popular Posts

Most popular

For the past several years, I have been keeping count of each time a page on this web site is viewed. That makes it possible to know which pages are the most popular.

That means there's a sort of built-in weighting that would tend to favor older posts. I'll address that sometime in the future.

Below are links to my ten most popular postings, starting with my all-time most-read posts.

All the albums and tracks from my not inconsiderable music collection.

I have a really large record collection, and I'd like to share it with you. I can't share the actual music, of course—that would be wrong!—but here is the list of my current holdings, all digital or digitized.

The specific protocol for the oral hydrogen peroxide therapy that cures bacterial, fungal, and even some parasitic infections, as well as cancers..

I've been chronicling my successes with hydrogen peroxide, and am so often asked for the specific protocol—which I described in bits and pieces—that I decided I would detail it here, for those interested enough in creating improved health for themselves.

About Me

My personal life…don't read about it if you don't want to know about it!

I've been married to a woman and to men (at different times); been a father to four and a grandfather to five (so far). I've been a radio DJ, a sailor, a truck driver, an instructor, a ditch-digger (for one day—that was enough), a computer programmer and a writer. Oh, and an actor and a lifeguard—and an aficionado of camping and whitewater rafting. I've visited almost twenty countries (again, so far), and been in an alien spacecraft. I've gone from being a Catholic to exploring various religions until finding that "spiritual, not religious" works best for me.

Truck Drivin' Journal

Alternate Roads

When I was employed as a corporate trainer, I flew to strange cities—sometimes in foreign countries—,usually rented a car and had to find my hotel and the location of the training facility, usually in the dark, tired from my flight, and without benefit of a GPS system (not yet available to drivers). This was actually pretty stressful. And, as I was driving to the hotel, I would sometimes pass big rigs and look up at the drivers and think, "Now, there's a stress-free job!"

All about the music I make, listen to, and love.

Music is my life, or at least its backdrop—and sometimes its foreground as well… I enjoy composing, performing and recording music. I also enjoy playing it, attending concerts where it's played, and collecting odd and interesting pieces of music. …and this is the the section where you may explore it with me.

Karen is rewarded for her hard work.

It's May, so we have another graduation! This time it's my daughter, Karen, who got her bachelor's degree in Anthropology from Arizona State University this morning. Despite the fact that sitting in a sports stadium for three hours listening to unpronounceable names being, against all odds, pronounced as a thousand purple-robed graduates gavotte from chair to educator to educator and back to chair was considered too severe a torture for even Condoleezza Rice to order for Guantanamo Bay prisoners, it was a wonderful experience to be there for my little girl as she takes that magical step from childhood to employability.

Various essays of mine with a political angle. Because politics is hilarious!

People, as the venerable Art Linkletter used to say, are funny. And they are never funnier than when arguing. Consequently, few things strike me as more hilarious than politicians lying about things that are easily validated, and their followers believing those lies despite personal experience to the contrary. So here are a few essays I've written on the subject…!
