This came about when I was playing the game of "Questions" with a poet in California.  One would ask a question, and if the other answered, the first person would have to answer the same question.  The question: "What are your values?"  Sounds easy, but it took over two weeks to distinguish activities from their underlying values.

---Observations --- Just a few things to think about: Adaptability - design for the unknown; Product Quality - How much better can your product be with a little more creative effort; Timeliness - The bathtub curve of quality and its impact on systems development; Generations - Old age and treachery can overcome youth and enthusiasm? Expanding Technology - Yesterday's science fiction is today's reality - staying current

Writing runs in the family. The Attica Ledger Tribune has published my mother's weekly articles for more than 24 years. My daughter, Maryanne Myers just released a new book, RANDOM, The Nefarious Realm available through www.buybooksontheweb.com. As recently de-classified CIA files prove, there are people whose soul-selves can travel anywhere at will, while their mortal bodies remain asleep. This novel is about people who can 'O.B.E.' (Out-of-Body- Experience) at will. She publishes newsletters on the web and also will distribute your advertising across the web to millions of subscribers.
