    Some Musings.

    Here are some things/advice for folks that I have found to be helpful. 1)Just walk up to me, I don't bite and I'm not contageous. 2)If I see someone staring, I will engage them in a friendly manner, it gets the staring to stop. I've even made a few friends this way! 3)Humor...
