Wise Eyes

The Broad Spectrum Life

Wise Eyes

The old man claimed his vision was bad
But this old guy didn’t know what he had
Sure, long lived eyes may not see the world well
Details close and afar are hard to tell

His vision has worsened or so he thinks
He forgot his vision that does not blink
His eyes see more than the younger can
Wisdom corrects vision over lifespan

Wise eyes see outward by first seeing in
Enhance optics with knowledge over again
The worn, weary eyes may distort some light
Precision and focus shine from insight

His vision has merits, they’re working retired
Eyes wise are sightly even if expired

Little Walter : 50 Years Dead but he will never be gone! The King of the Blues Harmonica

The Immortal Jukebox

Little Walter died 50 years ago in tragic circumstances.

The term irreplaceable is too often used – in the case of Little Walter no other term will do.

Since his untimely death many fine musicians have been inspired by the majesty of his Sound and in consequence produced superb records.

None have matched Walter’s. No one ever will.

In his honour I present again The Immortal Jukebox tribute to the greatest Blues Harmonica Player of all time.

You gotta say Little Walter invented the blues harmonica .. No one had that sound before him. No one could make the thing cry like a baby and moan like a woman.

No one could put pain into the harp and have it come out so pretty. No one understood that the harmonica – just as much as a trumpet, a trombone or a saxophone – could have have a sound that…

Tiny Bundled Rows Of life…

Pmespeak's Blog

“The power of love
A force from above
Cleaning my soul
Flame on burn desire
Love with tongues of fire
Purge the soul
Make love—your goal.” by Candy de Rouge

With care! We manufacture robots tiny—bundled rows of life about Earth-rise—underneath Moon-sparkle—still altered-still same and always twirl-spaced across Time bridged and rhyme. We inspire desire and require sweet diversity. Until shaped—we shift created life—a fabricated slip and tanked in agile spark from womb-song-to-light-then-back-again-to-two—again. Would have this—no other way…

“It started with workers’ evening classes outside the city gates. Her kind blue eyes would sparkle as she told me in a rote, sing-song voice of the importance of awakening the workers’ class consciousness. I was happy for her and realized what a joy it must be to discover some all-consuming goal.” …by Larissa Vasilieva

COME ON BROTHER, I’M TAKING YOU HOME

Angel Flight

Angel Flights are the U.S. Air Force planes (C-130’s) used to fly home our Fallen Soldiers.  Angel Flight is also their call sign.  Angel Flights have top priority in the U.S. airspace – Towers will be heard to say, “Number One for landing/take off.”

The Air Force Angel Wing flare pattern is amazing to watch as the flares come out in the shape of an angel wing.  A fitting tribute to bring home our fallen with the respect they have earned.

Please watch and listen to Radney Foster sing the powerful message of “Angel Flight”

6 Ideas for a Better New York Subway

Penney Vanderbilt and KC Jones: All About Railroads

City Lab

The beleaguered system looked outside its own ranks for ambitious new fixes.

Craig Avedisian, a New York City lawyer and one of the Genius Challenge winners, proposes increasing capacity by adding more cars to trains, without having to build longer platforms.

The Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) wants to know if anyone, anywhere, can figure out how to fix New York City’s beleaguered subway.

With the hopes of solving problems such as persistent overcrowding, train delays, and crumbling physical infrastructure, the MTA launched a Genius Transit Challenge in June. Offering as much as *$1 million for the best idea, nearly 500 groups hailing from 23 different countries sent in submissions. Now, the final results are in.

Last week, an expert panel selected six winners, awarding them a total of nearly $2.5 million in prize money. They present new ideas for train control signals, subway car design, data management, and…

Legendary General Electric Chief Jack Welch Has One Big Retirement Tip

Penney Vanderbilt and KC Jones: All About Railroads

The Street

The concept of retirement is outdated, suggests long-time General Electric CEO Jack Welch.

Jack Welch isn’t your average 82-year-old business tycoon.

The former chief executive officer of General Electric Co. (GE – Get Report) started working at the company in 1960, a freshly-minted chemical engineering PhD, at a plant in Pittsfield, Mass. He had a starting salary of $10,500.

In 2001, Welch retired from his position as CEO of the same company with a $417 million severance package, the biggest type of payment made to any U.S. CEO in recent history.

Along the way, Welch increased GE’s market value by an impressive $300 billion. He whipped a struggling industrials company into a global leader by implementing widespread change and stark cost-cutting that earned him the nickname “Neutron Jack.”

With all his successes in a storied career, what are Welch’s tips for retiring smart? Just don’t
