Dateline Dayton – Last week I started to write an essay about the election. However, my computer had other thoughts. It went out of commission. Later the same day, I left for Illinois, for the Cash Register Collectors Club swap meet and meeting. After replacing the power source, the computer is working again. My essay would have started out about … Read More

Dateline Dayton – Returning from our Canadian cruise last week, we went to a kennel to pick up Jake, our favorite pet for the last 17 years. This was a new experience since our regular dog kennel was closed for vacation. When we arrived for Jake, he was still getting his bath. We had to wait for him to dry. … Read More

Dateline Dayton – On a recent Wednesday after taking Jake, our dog, to his hotel, we were on our way to Baltimore, the port, in anticipation of a cruise to Canada. Since we didn’t need to arrive at the ship until Thursday afternoon, we stopped at the Rocky Gap Casino and Resort, in Flintstone, MD, for the night. A great … Read More

Dateline Dayton — Does anyone care? Children are being abused and killed daily by persons who should be caring for them. Often the deaths are violent. Babies are shaken to death, beaten, shot. When will it stop? Will it? Caring people must come together and do something. I continue to advocate the need for a license to have and to … Read More

Dateline Dayton — Last weekend the Cash Register Collectors Club held a get-to-gather, here in Dayton. Due to death of my collecting buddy Howard on Sept. 2, I had to handle the event by myself, though I did get help from Pauline and our son Chris. On Thursday my friend Milton, from Australia, arrived along with his wife and another … Read More

Dateline Dayton — Another Muslim terrorist act in the United States. When will we learn to get along, no matter our religious beliefs? The American Muslim community needs a wakeup call. They must come together, denounce the violence and demonstrate they are peace-loving people. Sure, only a few cause the trouble. The acts reflect, however, on all. Today I would … Read More

Dateline Dayton — My blood pressure goes up every time I think about those professional football players who do not stand for the National Anthem. The Anthem is not white or black. Nor is it about police or fire personnel. It’s definitely not about Democrats or Republicans. It is about our country. All of us should be proud to be … Read More

Dateline Dayton — Brock Turner is receiving a lot a media attention since his release from a Northern California jail. What he did was terrible. But it’s not his fault he received such a light sentence. None of us would tell a judge we should be in jail longer, for what we did. The problem is the judicial system and … Read More

Dateline Dayton — Two months ago I attended a members meeting here of the British Transportation Museum. Since I had already acquired two British National Cash Registers for them, I thought it would be nice it they had a proper display for the registers. I volunteered to get them a display and told them I would provide a sketch at … Read More

Dateline Dayton — Will the stupidity ever stop? Start with the worst – a mother, using the term loosely, broke her infant’s skull and inflicted other injuries. Just another example of why I keep writing about the need for licensing in order to have children. Some persons are not prepared to raise a child. From experience, raising a child is … Read More
