Reasonably priced advice and a lesson too!

There is no truth to the rumor that Nash Institute of Technology will soon have me teach a course in DC current - despite the fact that I could teach it better than new graduates of electrical engineering schools.
In the Army, a young officer recently graduated from college can be perceived as a 90-day wonder. I am not a 90-day wonder when it comes to DC current. A man of my age, yesterday, 80 percent through my seventh decade, I am the experienced sergeant rather than the novice lieutenant.

Campaign season never ends, and that's a problem

We are more than a year from the next presidential election, and I'm already tired of the campaign.
As a matter of fact, the only positive I can see at this point is that the current occupant of the White House will have to vacate the premises. That promised 'Hope' and 'Change' and 'Forward' has turned into "we Hope we can Change force and stop running Forward into the abyss. It seems ironic that after winning the Nobel Peace Prize about two months after taking office, we're still involved in two wars, Syria still burns, ISIS has risen, Iran has been given the green light to build nukes, Russia invaded Ukraine, and the country has been rocked by riots like it is the 1960s again.

Shelter merely means that they will be fed, watered and their poo sprayed out of their kennel... if they are strays. If they are owner surrenders, they may be euthanized immediately, soon as you walk out the door, leaving your pet that loves you behind. It is a matter of space. If they have space, there is a chance. So please, if you need to find a new home for your pet, exhaust all the options first before taking to the Shelter, where they might die.

ROCKY MOUNT - Even a pair of team losses in the Big East Conference haven't dampened the spirits of the surging Nash Central High School girls tennis squad.
