    It was interesting to read this week that the greatest golfer of all time is something less than mechanically inclined.
    According to his wife, Barbara, Jack Nicklaus has been disparagingly tagged with the nickname, ‘Handy Jack.’
    She made the comment that her father was a whiz at repairing any and everything around the house when she was growing up and she thought that all men could do those things.
    She then related a story of how she asked Jack to attach a simple shelf to the inside of a cabinet door to hold spices, cups or something of that ilk.

    One of my classes, Psychology 101, was being used to introduce computers to college students and we had several assignments where we had to go and answer questions on a new system called e-mail.

    A few years ago, classical musicians started doing “random acts of culture,” usually in busy shopping malls.
    All of a sudden, someone in the crowd would start singing or playing a violin and then others in the food court or on the escalator would join in until 10 or 20 or more voices and/or instruments would create a moment of cultural beauty while surprised shoppers stopped and listened, pulling out their cellphones to record it to share with their friends on Facebook or YouTube.
