Locker room talk.

Photo: Gage Skidmore/Flickr Donald Trump is about my age. We were probably both in similar type locker rooms when we’re in high school, and homogeneous locker rooms associated with golf thereafter.

Money Control.

Money Controls.   What can we, current slaves of the money culture, do to free ourselves and our children?   Money controls easily because it has its own language and culture, and the average person finds that particular language tedious and confusing to learn.  In the Western world we have printed or are printing literally […]

Kids live in the moment, and look at how much fun they have. In the moment means being able to put aside chores, phones, computers, responsibilities and thoughts past and future.
