Formidable Women – Rosalind Franklin (1920 – 1958)

Gerhart von Kap-herr

rosalind Franklin

On the days preceding and ending with International Women’s Day, I intended to write about four formidable women from history, to remind people of the recognition they deserved but were often denied. However, I had scheduled a memorial service in the local church for the two women who had been dearest to me for March 8th. Subsequently, preoccupied with remembered loss and sorrow, I was unable to write anything on that very special day.

Now, I am Europe for a month to visit friends and relatives in Austria and Germany, perhaps for the last time. However, I must still tell you, to give her, her due, of my impressions of “The Dark Lady of DNA,” as she was titled by her biographer, Brenda Maddox.

Today, let us remember…

LOVE RESCUED ME!…by Carl Gooch

By the Mighty Mumford

Love Rescued Me

God’s holy word lights my way,

And His Spirit helps me each day.

Step by step ever closer I seek.

It’s more than a feeling or mental;

It is for me basic life’s fundamental.

I’ve sworn an oath, a sincere vow;

That to my God alone will I bow.

This world is filled with wickedness.

Each day I face the devils dark arts,

Yet I’m shielded from his fiery darts.

Accept my life as a tribute of praise,

I will serve you till the end of my days.

From birth I’m sinful and undeserving.

You looked down and saw my pitiful plight,

Your love rescued me from an endless night.

Carl A. Gooch ~ 20 October 2015

How Many

DoubleU = W

How many more steps do I have

and should I take them carefully

as though measured and sure

to insure solid footing


How many more thoughts will I have

and should they be the same focus

as though perfecting the topic

to insure solid understanding


How many more lines will I write

and should they be written simply

as though to exhaust a subject

to insure I’ve spoken my piece


How many more days do I have

and should I live them same-ly

as though measured and sure

to insure the next


How many are there

there is no way to know

but I will accept each

as though it were the last

Dropshipping and Drones – Today vs. Tomorrow


The only drone developments that directly impact dropshipping in the USA  today are Amazon and Google  testing drones developed for delivering goods to customers.

E-commerce giant Inc. is developing aerial drones that it said could deliver products directly to consumers’ homes within the next five years. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said the vehicles could deliver up to five pounds in a 10-mile radius of Amazon’s 96 warehouses within 30 minutes. Bezos said. “It will work, and it will happen, and it’s gonna be a lot of fun,” he said, according to Bloomberg News.

The Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration would have to approve the use of drones, Bloomberg said. Congress has directed it to write regulations to allow such vehicles in United States airspace by 2015. Drones are currently used to deliver textbooks in Australia, and an experiment using them is under way in China. In addition…
