Back home in the good old USA

About JSH

There are more than 195 countries in the world by my count and I want to see them all before they all start to look the same – The United Nations has 192 members, but they do not recognized two independent countries, the Vatican City and Kosovo. U.S. Department of State recognizes 194 independent countries around the world, but their list has a political agenda and is missing Taiwan. All of this is without getting into the dozens of territories and colonies that are sometimes called “countries” such as Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Greenland, Palestine, Western Sahara, and even the components of the United Kingdom (such as Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England) and without counting states and provinces like Texas and Montréal that think they are independent countries. No madder how you count or tag them they are changing, starting to look the same and losing a little bit of themself every day. I do not want to see the world through the eyes of Las Vegas or Disney, like reading the Cliff Notes of a Hemingway novel; you get the idea but miss the point! Life is short, but how long live is up to you…

      I truly did enjoy my escape to Vietnam and appreciate your comments and was thrilled you like the blog. I could have used your Dad’s technical help while I was posting an attempting to build the site and load the content, I had trouble with my html code. Please tell him I said HI and he should have taken the time to comment too.

      Did you look at the video under the Random section in the blog – It reminded me of the one your Dad built in your back yard one year when we can to visit you all in ME.
