Welcome

Welcome!

This website helps me share a few things I’ve created.

Some of them you can download for free from this website, as pdf files.  (You just have to agree to the legal stuff (see Terms and Conditions).)  Some of them you can buy (hard copy) at places like Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com.  One is another website, where you can subscribe to my blog.  Either way, I’d be pleased if you took a look at the things I’ve made, and if you do, I hope you enjoy them.

More will be added, so be sure to check back from time to time.  For now, I’m sharing a few silly videos (check Videos on the menu above) and five other things I’ve put together.

  • Oh Mother, That Man’s Here Again!! The Christmas Cards of Charles W. Carvin.   A renowned humorist who performed with Bob Hope and Morey Amsterdam, grandfather Carvin drew his own Christmas cards from 1928 until 1971, poking cartoon fun at icons of politics and popular culture, ranging from FDR to LBJ, Adolf Hitler to Mae West, and Mickey Mouse to Snoopy. The coffee-table book becomes a  light-hearted chronicle of 20th century American history. Hardbound, 153 pages, 218 full color illustrations.

  • WeMayBeWrong.org.  A website and blog I manage for people interested in the culture of human arrogance and our remarkable tendency to be wrong.  The website’s tagline is “Fallibility > Humility > Civility.” (If we keep our fallibility in mind, we’ll likely be more civil in our conversations with others, especially on controversial topics like politics and religion  – and less likely to blow up the world in which we live.)  Clicking the button below will open the We May Be Wrong website in a new window.

 

 

 

 

  • Cage Stories – Episodes from my life story (not yet complete, I’m happy to say!) from 1950 through 2000.
