Whew! Still a lot going on huh? Here's a poem for you this time:

By " Laughing" Larry Berger

" Hear the wild dogs as they howl with hunger in the night.
yet feed them and what do they? Fight and Strut and fight and fight and strut so more giving no thought to the morrow which will surly come." The richest man in Babylon.

emotions rule the day

Wars get started
governments fall
industries that have stood for years go bankrupt.

Sometimes reason rules the day
the world gets changed for the better

Sometimes greed rules the day
air, water and earth are poisoned
as coffers get filled. 

Sometimes people have passionate beliefs
They build companies like Facebook, Google
Ford, Nightingale/Conant etc. and build nations like
The USA and start revolutions and effect change

I like living in a world of variety !
what about you? 

 Neat huh?
