Ask not...

Today marks the 50th anniversary of JFK's inaugural address which he delivered from the frigid steps of the nation's capital after becoming the 35th president of the United States.  In that speech, he propositioned the American people to become the new generation of torch bearers who would carry on the principles for which our great country was founded.  Likely, many have heard those now famous words, "ask not what your country can do for you --ask what you can do for your country".

Although the number of Americans who were actually alive at that time in history is now fewer than the total number who have been born since, the message ought to resonate even louder today than it did then.  It's time for all of us to carry the torch, and with it, we can light up the world!

MIA is a familiar acronym for persons missing in action.  Ordinarily, it is reserved for soldiers who are unaccounted for, but in a broader sense, it has been used for anyone who has been, shall we say, "off the radar".  In the case of this blogger, I have most definitely been MIA from musing the "masses" with my rapier wit.  Ever since we turned the page on another calendar year, it seems that I haven't been able to sit down at my keyboard to "express myself".  Well, IM taking this opportunity to "reconnect", in a manner of speaking, just to let you all know that IM alive and well.  As soon as the dust settles from this chaos, I intend to amuse you once again with my stories of life.

OMG it's "MIA" bedtime, so buenos noches mis amigos!

Happy New Year

Every year it's the same; New Years follows Christmas by a week and it also brings a conclusion to the holiday season.  However, what happens through the season varies with from year to year, and that's what characterizes those memorable moments that, hopefully, won't be forgotten anytime soon.  Now that we have come to the end of the holiday season but are about to embark on another year, Happy New Year to everyone and may the year ahead be full of happiness and good health!
