Random thoughts, subjects

Last week, family and friends gathered in the small town of Chattahoochee Hills, south of Atlanta, to celebrate a life well-lived. Our late grandson, Zack Wansley, was honored at the dedication of "Zack's Glade," a pristine and picturesque piece of Cochran Mill Park near where he died while training for the Atlanta Marathon in 2008.

Take precautions during Halloween festivities

The crisp fresh air and the falling of leaves most certainly signal that the fall season is upon us. This time of year always invokes special thoughts and recollections.

Burger King?

What goes down will also go up

Forty years ago I embarked on a career in the oil industry that has covered decades. That career has taken me around the world far more than once. It has taken me from oil rigs to refineries, to massive tanker ships to the highest corporate towers.
