AREN'T THESE A COUPLE OF CUTE KIDS?  Ten years ago, Riley James Pierce Boggs, my youngest grandson, was six years old and in first grade.  He and I are the greatest Buds.  His sister, Delaney Rose Pierce Boggs, was only four years old, thinking about Preschool.  She was, and still is, her grandpa's little "ROSEBUD".  These two are truly special to me as my daughter, Kimberly, had them later in life.  My other grandchildren are grown, through college with kids of their own.

2015
TODAY, Riley, at 16, is a Junior in High School.  Delaney, now 14, is a Freshman.  They have traveled extensive around the United States, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from San Diego to Cape Cod.  Delaney has made many, many trips to Chicago, the last time flying by herself, to have adventures on Rush Street with her Mom.  She will be flying alone to spend time with my wife and I in Myrtle Beach in October.  Riley just returned from a couple weeks in San Diego where he sailed and traveled around the state with his older cousins.


MONEY AND SUCCESS DON'T CHANGE PEOPLE, THEY MERELY AMPLIFY WHAT IS ALREADY THERE - Will Smith

OTHER CHANGES IN THE LAST TEN YEARS


FACEBOOK - Mark Zuckerberg and four Harvard dorm friends, founded the social net work, FACEBOOK.  From it's awkward beginning it has become an international phenomenon with 1.2 Billion users.  FACEBOOK has changed our lives in the last ten years.

IGNORANCE IS ALWAYS AFRAID OF CHANGE - Jawaharial Nehru


NEWS CONSUMPTION - In the last ten years, the transformation of the nation's news landscape has taken a heavy toll on the print news.  Excepting for Fox, TV news is also vulnerable to on line and digital news.  CNN has declined from having over a quarter of the nation's viewers to only 16% and falling rapidly.  Personally, in addition to watching Fox, I read USA TODAY and THE WASHINGTON POST at 5:45 AM on my Kindle Fire.  Haven't bought a newspaper in years.

TOUGH TIMES NEVER LAST, BUT TOUGH PEOPLE DO - Robert H. Schuller


CLIMATE CHANGE - The scientific community all agree, the earth is in a long term warming trend.  Nine of the ten hottest years on record has been in the last ten years.  The most extreme warming can be seen at the northern extremes of North America and in general across the high north latitudes.

CHANGE, LIKE SUNSHINE, CAN BE A FRIEND OR FOE, A BLESSING OR A CURSE, A DAWN OR A DUSK - William Wood


McDONALD'S EVEN CHANGED THE McCHICKEN.  ADDED LETTUCE AND TOMATO AND INCREASED THE PRICE.

GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS
