Coffee & Conversation February 17th, 2012 0 comments

Just because we’re taking a week off doesn’t mean your convos have to stop. There’s a conversation — a discussion — out there with your name on it. Find it and jump in! Even better, pull some folks together and start your own. See you again on February 24. Practice up! Next week, let’s talk […]

Coffee & Conversation: Race: Not As Enlightened As the New Claims

Coffee & Conversation February 2nd, 2012 0 comments

Last week we went there. Dared to discuss religion. It was emotional but we kept it – the conversation and the substance – cool.  Much respect, but we didn’t go deep enough.  What about race? On the street we claim this generation is different.  That twenty-somethings are more racially open-minded – young folks have friendships […]

Coffee & Conversation: It’s 2012, Do We Need Religion?

Coffee & Conversation January 26th, 2012 0 comments

Time to go there! I saw this message on the tube – it’s must watch stuff: More than 16 million peeks and a response battle going on! What’s this about? Some of the most terrible, out of touch people, cruelest, meanest, worst, most frightful, unsettling, close-minded folks that I don’t want to be around our […]

Coffee & Conversation: Catch Up and Look at the Web

Coffee & Conversation January 19th, 2012 0 comments

What’s happened while we were away? The satire hits the American political system:   The troops are home and war is over? Religious devotion breaking out in the middle of crowds. US able to shut down spots on the Web on word from tattletales about possible copyright infringement. Power? Is this just a fight between […]

Coffee & Conversation: Mix, Mingle, Chit, Chat & Dance

Coffee & Conversation December 7th, 2011 2 comments

Love all the convo and discussion during the last few months: education; AIDS; corruption in political systems; happiness; the nature of activism; and, the value of a vote.  We had a lot of flow, and of course, plenty of music. The last conversation of the year – yes, 2011 – is all about your flow.  […]

Coffee & Conversation: AIDS at 30 – Still Worth the Convo?

Coffee & Conversation December 1st, 2011 0 comments

Now, a complete rundown of all the news from the front would take hours. Risk of death from AIDS: way down. Risk of death from other things: going up. Risk of drug reaction: depends. Risk of fatal drug reaction: low but not zero. Risk of drug resistance: gets higher every year. The statistics change almost […]

Coffee & Conversation: “Education Under Fire” Again

Coffee & Conversation November 14th, 2011 0 comments

Despite seeing some of the best and the worse, I’m a believer: education – both formal and the schooling on the outside of a building – saved my life. Education also made my life. Much of the chatter about education centers on the economic angle. What happened to the civic, social, and moral aspects of […]

Coffee & Conversation: Special Sports Edition

Coffee & Conversation November 11th, 2011 0 comments

When did this happen? In addition to the athletes, we’ve all been enslaved. A football coach runs and takes down an institution? People take to the streets to protest the firing of a football coach. Justice? And, why is it the lead on the national news? Corrupt stuff, for sure, but I can’t help myself. […]
