Texans Love our Fords, and so do Brits

From Escorts to F-150s, we Texans love our Ford vehicles. In rural counties all over Texas, often there is only one dealership: Ford.

That may sound irrelevant if you live in the city, but if you travel anywhere in Texas, you can always get a Ford fixed. Not so, if you are driving one of those cute little foreign cars. You could end up marooned in Marathon or wherever, because they have to order a part from Korea. Yikes! (I could tell you stories!)

My first car was a Ford Maverick, and it

Apple Stock Soars. Steve Jobs Would Be Proud.

Those who predicted the decline of Apple when Steve Jobs died were certainly premature. Apple stock prices have soared above $500 a share, and Apple is worth more than Microsoft and several other huge corporations combined.

Apple's deplorable business practices, on the other hand, are a danger to its legendary customer loyalty. Hazardous conditions in Chinese sweatshops with long hours and pathetic wages are nothing to be proud of.

I hope Apple continues to flourish, because I think

Hummingbird metabolisms are set in permanent overdrive, requiring them to consume more than half their body weight in nectar every day, yet even so, they remain in constant

iPhone: Luxury or Necessity? What happened?

Image via Wikipedia
When did having an iPhone change from being a luxury, a status item, to being a necessity? Has it? Looks like it to me.

Where I live, it used to be only wealthy people, status-conscious techies, and rich kids who had iPhones. Now people have them who would surprise you.

My friend Ted, who only checks email because it is part of his job, has an iPhone, because his wireless provider was giving away iPhone 3. So he got one. Sue, who would rather play poker on line
