Fall

Tue, 10/17/2017 - 21:36 -- Ray Richards
    Fall is a funny season.  Some years it surprises us and arrives in September and winter takes over in late October.  Other years it stays in hiding until November and gives way to winter in late December.  The only sure thing we know about fall is that it will arrive and will eventually give way to winter, we just never know when.  Weather forecasters w

Balanced

Tue, 10/03/2017 - 20:44 -- Ray Richards
    It amazes me how the moon can circle the earth in such a consistent orbit.  About every 28 days it goes full circle and then starts again.  Always the same path, always the same time.  The same can be said for all the planets.  They orbit the sun in a constant path and speed.  The whole system is perfectly balanced and has continued to run, some say for

Read Carefully

Tue, 09/26/2017 - 19:57 -- Ray Richards
    I was skimming through last weeks paper and happened to browse through the classified ads.  There was one about wood for sale with the banner ‘fire wood’.  Right beside it was a list of rental units with the banner ‘for rent’.  At a quick glance what I saw were the two banners looking like one that read ‘fire wood for rent’.  Needless to say I took a do

Calculus

Tue, 09/19/2017 - 20:46 -- Ray Richards
   I can vaguely remember back to my days in university when I took a course in calculus.  At the start of the year there were 15 people in the class, by Christmas, only 10.  Some people found it difficult to understand so they dropped out of the course and found something easier.  I too found it difficult.  But to me giving up was not an option.  I paid cl

Stay Focused

Tue, 09/12/2017 - 20:53 -- Ray Richards
    Last week my wife and I went to a coffee shop.  I got my order first and I went back out to the car while she talked with a friend.  When she came out she stood by the door and seemed lost.  Some one in the parking lot looked at her and said, “You came from that way.”  My wife then looked around and found the car.  I’m sure we’ve all done it, I know I h

Hummingbirds

Tue, 09/05/2017 - 20:57 -- Ray Richards
    Last night we had two hummingbirds at our honeysuckle vines.  There are truly amazing birds.  They hover in the air and appear motionless as they poke their long beaks into the flowers.  I researched and found their wings beat about 80 times per second.  That is mind boggling.  But then again, there are many things in nature that are mind boggling.  Why

Free

Wed, 08/30/2017 - 08:03 -- Ray Richards
    I remember reading a while ago about a zoo that had trouble getting rid of all the manure the animals produced.  They tried to give it away, but it seemed no one wanted to haul it away.  Then some one had a brilliant idea.  They decided to sell it as ‘exotic manure’.  They found they could not keep up with the demand.  When it was free, no one wanted it

Blinded

Tue, 08/22/2017 - 20:42 -- Ray Richards
    Years ago I had a friend who was colourblind.  I remember driving home from work one evening with him and commented about a beautiful sunset.  The reds and purples were beautiful.  He looked at me and said, ‘it all looks brown to me.’  I thought how sad it was that he was ‘blinded’ to the colours of a beautiful sunset.  Now matter how hard or how long h

Names

Tue, 08/15/2017 - 20:37 -- Ray Richards
    Living in the town in which I taught I often run into former students.  When they say hi I generally realize it is someone I taught so I rack my brain trying to remember the name.  Sometimes I can come up with a name and sometimes I am completely stumped.  I am sure I often walk past students I don’t even recognize.  After many years their faces change
