Rendering to Caesar what is of Caesar...

Marriage Bible
Is it lawful to pay the census tax to Caesar, or not?” But Jesus, knowing their wickedness, said: “Why do you test me, you hypocrites? Show me the coin of the census tax.” And they offered him a denarius. And Jesus said to them, “Whose image is this, and whose inscription?”  They said to him, “Caesar’s.” Then he said to them, “Then render to [...]

The “Obsolete Man”

  A scene from the Obsolete Man Episode of the Twilight Zone 1961 “You walk into this room at your own risk, because it leads to the future, not a future that will be but one that might be. This is not a new world, it is simply an extension of what began in the old one. It has patterned itself after every dictator who has ever plan [...]

The First Round -What should have been debated on Wednesday Evening!
I am amazed at all of the spin & hype after the debate on who won and who lost! Presidential Debate Images from: Boston.Com First is the view from the neo-con commentators that Governor Romney won the debate by a large margin and that he was so masterful in his criticism of the President and his record over the last 4 years.

‘THE RISING RATE OF SUICIDES- THE PERMANENT END IS NOT A SOLUTION TO LIFE’S PROBLEMS”
  In the last month, I have been hit with very bad news; another person I have known had committed suicide. This time, the suicide was one of my old high school classmates whom had served in the military for four years. This was now the fourth male that I have attended school with along with two females, a neighbor, and a movie director. [...]

Private Property
I am always amazed how far we Americans have drifted away from our founding   principles and passively give away our God given rights to our state and federal governments without even a whimper of protest. In my small Northeastern New Jersey borough of Closter an ordinance was passed in 2001 and updated a few times since then designating part [...]

RIP TONY SCOTT

Tony Scott
Tony Scott As a veteran of the entertainment industry, people used to ask me who I liked to       work with the most when it came to the movie crowd.  I would get the question, “Who are your favorite actors and directors.” When it would come to the favorite director list, the one person that would first come to mind was Tony Scott.  When I wa [...]

Teaching kids about mistakes

Let-kids-make-mistakes
As adults we tend to get upset when we make mistakes. I have heard clients, friends and family be really hard on themselves when they make a mistake. What we don’t realize as parents is that our kids hear what we say and watch our non verbal behaviors and every time we get upset at ourselves for making a mistake we are teaching our kids that [...]

I usually supported most of the GOP platform which included government intervention in the economy through corporate welfare and a blind adherence to an ever growing military presence in the world expanding NATO and increasing the military budget without ever questioning why we designat [...]

The “New” Parenting – parenting with too much technology
One of the stressors, I hear from my clients today is: How can I be a good parent with all these distractions? Between my cell phone, texting, e-mails, etc. I feel I never get a break. Parents always felt overwhelmed and busy but now add technology that has made our work weeks much longer and we feel like the world never stops. The new work w [...]
