After all these many, many years David and Nichelle are still looking good
David And Nichelle Are Still Looking Good

Time passes and with it pass those who were dear to each of us, so it’s good to see that some old associates are still looking good. Better in its own odd way, though David, Nichelle, and I haven’t had any interactions for close to 30 year, my wives now work closely with them on a regular basis and they’re all friends.

Steaming Things Up

Steampunk brings us back to the individualism and optimism prevalent before the first world war. As such, it reminds us of a romanticism that is sorely lacking in the modern, mass-produced, mass-marketed age.

Hence, I’m steaming things up a bit here at Reflections From a Murky Pond.
