HurricansStorms and Sentiments
Sitting here in our peaceful home located in Hillsborough, North Carolina half way between the Blue Ridge mountains and the Atlantic Ocean watching weather reports recently as I have gone through varying degrees of interest.  Although I possess some love and concern for all Americans I am especially concerned with the safety and good health of my family.  Especially me.  

When Hurricane Irma was classified as a Cat 5 headed for Miami and predicted to hit Georgia and South Carolina and North Caroline my ears pricked up.  I turned to the 24 hour weather news and followed Irma's progress.  Hour by hour I checked in for the latest news.  It was late when I finally went to sleep Thursday night and on Friday when I awoke around 10:30 a.m. my wife, Jean said, "The predictions have changed. Irma is expected to march through Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and on to an extended path toward Missouri as she weakens.  If she does we will just get a lot of rain, maybe. But remember, Irma has the right to change her mind."

My interest waned. I thought of that quote that goes something like, "It all depends on whose ox is being gored." I turned and thought, "It all depends on whose state is being battered." and then on to "Whose home is being flooded or blown away."  To, "What's the matter with you Art, can't you feel pain and concern and compassion for all of God's creatures?"  So I shut off my computer and went upstairs to ride my stationary bicycle and pray for all humankind.

What is your experience with the current weather situation.  I'd love to hear your comments.  Click Here to leave your comments on my Blog.

Say Something Good
Mountains in my life. Last week I conquered Occoneechee Mountain. I've driven past it a few times daily for the past seventeen years and said to myself, "Some day." 

My beloved daughters, Nancy and Amy visited last week and Nancy and I went out in search of an adventure. She had me turn down the road where you make the climb to the mountain viewing platform. It is just one mile from my home. "My legs are too bad to climb and it is over a mile straight up." I said. She consulted her cell phone. "It says it is just 0.015 up." she said. "That's about one city block. Why don't we try it? If it is too much for you we can stop and you can wait for me and we can go down together."

We went right up, took it easy and it was a breeze. For seventeen years I had visualized that climb as over a mile straight up. It was a wonderful view. I felt like I had conquered the Mattahorn. The next day daughter Amy and I took the River Walk. Both ways. It was inspiring.

May God Bless my daughters and all America and bring us world peace. 

Points To Ponder
Everyone may not be good, but there's always something good in everyone. Never judge anyone shortly because every saint has a past and every sinner has a future. Oscar Wilde

A Little Humor
Wisdom from Will Rogers.   Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco. 

Quote
You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it. Maya Angelou

John H. Burdakin and the Grand Trunk Western Railroad

John H. Burdakin and the Grand Trunk Western RailroadJohn H. Burdakin and the Grand Trunk Western Railroad provides a look at the principles and personal values that guided John H. Burdakin through a long, successful career as a top manager at three railroads—the Pennsylvania, the Penn Central, and finally the Grand Trunk Western, where he was president of the regional carrier from 1974 to 1986. The book, written from interviews with Burdakin before his death in 2014, gives real-life examples of how Burdakin’s management principles and personal qualities helped him solve labor- management problems, update railroad technology, protect worker safety, and improve employee morale while managing a four thousand–person workforce. It introduces colorful characters who were involved in American railroads, as well as the serious, life-threatening issues that confronted railroads in the last half of the twentieth century in America. This book will provide insights for managers of any business as well as for those seeking to balance a successful career and a rewarding home life.

Trapped in Shades of Grey

Trapped in Shades of GregDuring the trying days of World War II, everyone was called upon to do their patriotic duty. But what if that duty required you to live, eat, sleep, and fight alongside the enemy? Christoph Ernst, the son of German immigrants, is recruited to become a deep cover agent in the German Wermacht. He excels at his assignment as a soldier and a spy. As the war in Europe heats up, he realizes that he has made a huge error- he has made friends and become a part of the army that he is helping to destroy. When the time comes, he is uncertain if he will betray his country or his friends. When treachery is your mission, where do your loyalties lie?

The Santa Train by Art Fettig [Kindle]
The Christmas Train by Art FettigOnce upon a time, there was a worn out locomotive that nobody seemed to care about. Except maybe Charlie Weller, who was an old retired railroad engineer. And maybe nobody cared about old Charlie anymore either. At least it often seemed that way to Charlie. He had little to do but sit around and remember the good old days when he would run that ancient train up and down the tracks hauling freight.
