When You Don’t Know You are a Pioneer

Some of us remember when ATMs were a new idea. I am not a pioneer and always prefer more information. I figure you can always tell the pioneers by the arrows in their butts. So I was entertained by the ultimate issues that were not 

Why understanding is important

The paperback version of my book, It’s All About the Food, was published in November, 2015. It was republished on Kindle in 2017. Between 2015 and now scientific research has continued unabated with me doing my best to keep up. The book is purposely simple,
