Over 60…And Getting Younger: October 16, 2009

‘I Was Scammed!’

“Do not – I repeat, do not” open an email from me asking you to be my friend! It is a scam!

You are all my friends, my readers.

I received an email about 10 days ago from a lovely lady in my writing group. She is a kind and wonderful person and she asked me to be her friend. Not wanting to insult her, I followed all the questions until the end. Suddenly, at the end, I saw my entire address book printed out in a long column. I suspected nothing, and then it struck.

Migrating Hawks Ride the Wind

The sun is up a short while, illuminating the dark brown coat of a grazing whitetail deer that turns to look at three humans coming onto Fire Island. Grasses are shimmering in a stiff breeze that will blow all day across this strip of land with a bay on one side and the ocean on the other. I’m with a small group of observers who will be on a platform watching and recording migrating raptors all day.

The Plainview Water District would like to thank the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library and the Plainview Fire Department for their consideration and for making accommodations while the district’s administration building is being renovated.

Propaganda!

What do you know about propaganda? I have always been intrigued by this question.

Propaganda is not necessarily a lie, but it does have by definition an element of deception. A propagandist seeks to change the way people understand an issue for the purpose of changing their actions in a way that is beneficial to the propagandist. He wants change through trickery instead of information.

Memory Pro and Con

I have always had a prodigious memory!

Sometimes it has been a boon and occasionally it has caused me embarrassment. I would never have been able to write this column “Over 60 and Getting Younger” for over 11 years without the aid of a huge recollection factor.

In dental school one of the earliest courses was human anatomy. The tests were called practicums and certan muscles and blood vessels were selected as questions on the cadavers. Because of my gift I could recall pictures in my mind. I did well in anatomy. I wish memory of pictures and facts could have helped me more in biochemistry, physiology and microbiology.

 

Leter: A Letter to the Plainview Community

Friday, 18 September 2009 07:51

I visited Plainview Jewish Center for the first time last February. I was so impressed with the warmth of the people I met that I brought my wife and family back in April. Not only were we welcomed enthusiastically by everyone we met, but we also experienced firsthand the strong commitment of Plainview Jewish Center’s membership to the synagogue and the Jewish people. We came away convinced that Plainview Jewish Center was the perfect choice for our family.

The Enemies List

The United States of America has more than its share of detractors. They claim that our capitalistic form of government benefits only the rich. They state that we are mercenary, money-oriented, and only the rich get true justice. They also claim that we stick our collective noses into the world’s business.

Let us examine these rash statements.

On Dec. 7, 1941, our naval base at Pearl Harbor was bombed by Japanese planes. The USS Arizona was sunk with over 100 sailors still on board. We declared war on Japan. Was that unreasonable?
