The life so short, the craft so long to learn.” That’s a quote from Chaucer. (You know, the father of English Literature) There are lots of quotes. I’ve said a bunch of them. Over the past thirty years, I’ve read all sorts of thing like that. I just did a project that took over a year and almost everyday I would say, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

There are a bunch of those things and they all have some truth to them. If you can follow them there is a Read the rest

I grew up in the desert between Buckeye and Gila Bend, Arizona in a country store. I have wonderful memories of my first sixteen years and how many people in our community influenced my life in positive ways. For instance my English teacher in school, Mrs. Chapman. I hear myself chanting her phrases when correcting my grandchildren’s English. My mother taught me the importance of hard work, discipline, personal grooming, and believing in myself.

However, my father was my hero. He taught me many things, but at the top of the list, he taught me to treat Read the rest

The British expected to put down the rebellion quickly by taking Charleston, one of the largest and wealthiest ports in America.

Unprepared for battle, patriot Colonel William Moultrie and his troops hastily constructed a fort on the tip of the island using local palmetto trees. As the British navy began … Read the rest
