When to Declare a New Family Rule

Posted by Robert Edwards on

(Originally Published 9/2/2014) One day years ago we received a phone call from a friend who was stranded with his wife on the freeway.  His car had just sputtered and died.   We weren’t very far away so we went to assist him.   We’ll call him Larry.  (That’s not his real name)  We hopped in the car and found them stopped in the emergency lane with the hood up.   I jumped out to go “help” him.    Bill Cosby once described a similar incident where he jumped out, lifted the hood, and that ended the extent of his knowledge about cars.  I’m...

My Theory of Everything

Posted by Robert Edwards on

MY THEORY OF EVERYTHING (Originally published 12/31/2015) One of my favorite authors and speakers is a man named Michio Kaku.  He is an astrophysicist that often speaks on a unifying theory of physics commonly referred to as The Theory of Everything.   While advanced theories of physics are far beyond me he is able to describe complex concepts of physics in terms that I can understand.    While learning about physics is enjoyable for me,  I understand that I will never be able to contribute to this body of knowledge.   While thinking about this the other day it dawned on me that I...
