    Be wary of your spouse

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 16/05/2016

    » It's said that men marry for sex, women for security. An oversimplification yet consistent with the undeniable fact that each party enters matrimony with expectations. Before exchanging vows, they've probably discussed and agreed on children, one or two jobs, family relations, domicile, time with friends.

    Incomplete walk

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 09/11/2015

    » Being a freethinker, I allow that God created the cosmos and everything in it. If He (She, It) didn't do it, who did? On planet Earth, nature. Alas, people in cities equate the weather with nature. A few trees. A zoo if they are lucky to have one. Movies and books tell of it in distant places.

    The Black Hand

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 06/06/2016

    » The US has the dubious distinction of having the largest number of people behind bars than any other country in the world. It also has the greatest number of lawmen. It has long attracted organised and individual crime, especially in its big cities. Perpetrators figure that crowded metropolises are ripe for the picking.

    Historical hot spot

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 02/05/2016

    » This planet is comprised of hundreds of countries, few of which university graduates can name or their professors find on the map. Asked why, they'll say because they aren't important. Maybe they popped up in history, but then sank back into obscurity. Every continent has them. Poor buggers.

    A decent author

    Life, Published on 26/10/2015

    » There are 7 billion people in the world, a minute fraction are family and friends, and that's the way I like it. We all have problems -- I can't solve theirs, they can't solve mine. As life goes on, hopefully, they'll work themselves out or go away. If not, deal with them as best we can.

    Don’t pass it by

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 27/10/2014

    » Perhaps my chief complaint about authors is that all too many have nothing worthwhile to say. They tell a more or less interesting story, which we forget soon after turning the last page. There are writers, however, whose works leave us with food for thought.

    For Dog Lovers

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 08/04/2013

    » Dogs were domesticated in ancient times, archaeologists, historians and cave drawings agree. They were bred for different purposes, not least racing, and also for protection, to round up livestock, hunt foxes, pull sleighs, fight one another.

    Rogue agent

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 04/03/2013

    » If crime thriller novelists are to be believed, CIA agents rival politicians and lawyers as the least trustworthy professions. Intelligence salaries and pensions are so low that they accept bribes from America's enemies to turn a blind eye to their heinous activities. Some, such as Aldrich Ames, are caught. How many are not?

    Retirement blues

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 28/01/2013

    » The common notion about retirement is that it's something to look forward to, a time to relax and enjoy one's remaining years after decades of putting the nose to the grindstone. But that is the upside. The downside is the feeling of becoming useless, sensing the brain atrophying. There's nothing to do but watch the paint dry.
