This is another short pamphlet you can read in an hour. I put this out quite a while ago but I added pictures and a new cover. I wasn't into using endnotes as much for this one but times have evolved to where I think you can feel it as a real path.

I realized that I hadn't really posted anything on "Walden Shock" which just gives me the chance to run off at the mouth. It's a fairly long read but the focus was always on trying to come up with ideas that would smooth the path to the future. Who has time to read?
I put a list of spoilers at the back of the book so you can check out, directly, those ideas that might appeal to you. Cowgirls, robots, and guns in Texas? Yep.

I did some YouTube streams using "The Memory Book" to memorize Philippians. You really need to watch it if you need a lift. My singing sets a really low bar for singing but the smile value is pretty high.
"The Memory Book" is the second most powerful book out there. I always tell people that it is a guaranteed "A" in any school course that requires a lot of memory work. As an example, I told my kids that I'd pay for their college if they studied STEM. OR they were on their own. My daughter decided to do computer science because of my background being able to help her some. At the beginning, before she was practiced in the technique, she would send me lists of things she needed to memorize, I'd make the links, and then I learn her the visual links. She got her B.S in Computer Science. There were tears along the way.
I put out a pamphlet of storyboards on Kindle so that there is a handy and quick way to refresh the storyboards without having to view the videos. It is effective even while watching television.
I've given away numerous books, offered to help people get started by taking their ten item lists and generating the visuals. I'll do that for any of y'all, too. It's a gift that your grandkids will appreciate for life.

Did this pamphlet. It only takes an hour to read and I think it has ideas. You'll certainly let me know.
Amazon Blurb: Governments have always been a problem. As Thomas Paine said almost 250 years ago, "government even in its best state is but a necessary evil " In this new century, we have the capability of tracking government in the same fashion that government tracks us. This pamphlet leans towards short processes that can be implemented using technology, and existing systems, to give free people control of their governments.

The two patents I got last year are getting really close to a full size test. Of course, every test has two possible options. You can look at these two sites to see what we're stirring. I'll let you know if it succeeds. I hope I get to do that!

I've been trying to get your album "Vaya la Playa" to play from Spotify on Alexa. Not happening yet, keeps confusing it with somebody else. When the Spotify account holder gets home Im definitely getting it.

Also, thanks so much for reading "We Republicans"! It meant so much to me to hear you talk about some of the processes I suggested.

It was good to see you. I've told that story about the girl that got her mouth stuck on a doorknob a thousand times over the last 40 years. Finally, I know her name...tell Jill howdy!

Really enjoyed seeing you again. Hard to believe that we had houses yards apart and never saw each other (CR 132A vs CR 132B!) Let's do better!

The reason I don't have a yearbook picture is because I went to summer school for two years and graduated early. So here's a picture of me from my first year at Texas A&M as a 17 year old freshman which would have corresponded to my Mac senior year.

Funny those times in College Station...check ID to get into R rated movies but rarely at a bar!

My kids and grandkids always marvel that I had hair.

So this was my Orlando boot camp graduation photo. You KNOW I picked it because that was the only coed boot camp at the time. I saw couples get caught doing things in places that are simply unbelievable.

Look closely and it seems that maybe Obama was there with me!

OCS graduation. I received my Good Conduct ribbon (really!) for four years of uneventful service as Hospital Corpsman while in OCS which was cool because they mustered everybody to give me my only ribbon.

As licensed Medical Technologist, ASCP, I spent my enlisted time in the lab at NRMC Jacksonville, FL. specializing in microbiology, mycology, and eventually serology supervisor. The other formative enlisted time was assignment to the Neurosurgical ICU in Bethesday, MD. Ask for doctor stories!

After being stashed on various ships awaiting SWOS basic, I went to the U.S. Naval War College as X,R, and P divison (xerox reproductions and party)officer to await SWOS basic.

After SWOS, I was Main Propulsion Assistant on USS Talbot (FFG-4). It's duty: "missile sponge". I ended my short career as Aide Commanding Officer Naval Station Philadelphia.

This reminds me of something that happened to Phil Purvis. I think. He had one of those new Japanese cars and several football players picked up his car and moved it between a tree and a building. I think he had to back/turn boojillion times before he freed his vehicle.

This scratch (see it?) cost me 7 (yes..SEVEN) years of her trying to sue me for $250K eventually settling for $5K. I think Mac is lucky no lawyers were involved with Phil, eh?

Donna and I and our two Scotties. It is good to be living on constant-level Lake LBJ when the drought is shrinking all the other lakes in the past years.

The down side is that we lost Sally, one of the Scotties, when she got blind and deaf and fell/jumped into the lake. True bummer.

My wife shoots a .308 Winchester, proven at ranges exceeding 300 yards. Ain't I the luckiest hunter ever?

I've learned to watch my mouth and behave. (At least within hearing!)

The secret, IMHO, of a long, happy marriage is that the man learn to mumble. And duck?

Colby and Lara both loved pipe and drum bands. They both played the quints(?) drums at Johnston H.S. in Austin. We never missed a game. In five years we saw the Johnston team score ONE touchdown. Needless to say, we saw plenty of football games with basketball scores!

Colby is a producer at a gaming company in Baltimore now, playing with a Level 1 band out of New York. The bands take them to Scotland every year.

Of course, Lara has dropped the band in favor of family. Good choice!

Lara Evans (Robbins), Walter, and our three grandsons waiting for our fourth grandson in September 2o13.

Like any group of boys, they're lots of exciting fun associated with no small amount of dread, too. Fearless and eternally bad combo through history.
