What’s Wrong With The United Arab Emirates?

When I arrived here three years ago, I had never lived outside Australia. I had no real idea of Arab culture or Islam and had a naeve expectation that a country with incomprehensible wealth would have “bought off” all its problems. I now realise that contrary to my expectations, money creates its own problems here as elsewhere.

I had already experienced the problems of welfare dependency among indigenous Australians who receive “sit-down money” literally so they can sit on their black butts and do nothing. Why should I have expected it to be different here?

The truth is, since discovering vast oil wealth a few decades ago, the majority of the 830,000 odd Emiratis have spoiled themselves to the stage that they have now become largely moribund...

Leaving Guam On A Jet Plane

The equipment we maintained at the Naval Communications Station on Guam was the latest and most sophisticated available in one sense and not so complex in another. But it was what the Navy had at the time and they used it to spy on the world: secret encrypted messages, Russian missile launchings, radar communications sites and a multitude of others, among them, simple, almost archaic Chinese digital communications. Then there were our own people: the news media, telephone and short wave communications, and others.

The reason myself, Juan Trujillo, John Proza, Orion Larson and others were there is the equipment would fail at times and the operators would call down to the Electronics Shop in the basement and ask one of us to come to the third floor and get it going.

The first...

Best South American Travel Destinations

South American travel destinations are growing in popularity, and offer the travel some unique ecological and cultural places of interest. We chose Latin America because we love the food and culture of Latin America.

We began traveling to Mexico in the early 1970’s as kids, way before the million dollar condo projects…or roads for that matter. As adults we continued vacationing in Mexico and often traveled with our kids. It was really a natural extension for us to push further south and include Central America and South America in our travel plans.

There are many great South American travel sites, we only include a few here that our family hopes to visit...

Blue Christmas

It is that time of year again where everyone starts thinking about the holidays. For many it is a time of holiday depression.  Who am I going to spend the holidays with?  Should I travel and visit my family?  What parties am I going to give or go to?  What gift should I purchase for friends and family? 

As a psychic I receive more calls at this time of the year from people who are depressed and lonely, then any other time of the year. Holiday depression is very real. They have nowhere to go and no one wants to spend time with them. Sometimes I’m the only person they have to talk to. So many feel suicidal because they feel their life has no meaning.  I feel such compassion for these people because I know what it feels like not to have family...
