Ervin and Debbie Ducommun came to Camp Pendleton from Missouri to visit their son while he was completing Marine Cobra Helicopter flight certification.
It’s been a while since I brought up the 2 percent solution. A solution that will save and jumpstart the American economy.
I returned from Puerto Vallarta on April 23. For the first few days you can imagine what it is like after being gone for five weeks. You’re kinda here and kinda there. Plus, I’m still trying to get used to retiring; well, semi-retiring. But like I’ve said in previous columns, I positioned myself to have [...]
Today is my 26th day of being in Puerto Vallarta. The first day I stood in my condo and asked myself, “What am I doing here?”

I have that seriously bummed feeling creeping in. I’m flying home to Encinitas. That will conclude three weeks in my second home in Puerto Vallarta. Our first contest winners, Dean and Sue Henningsen, are coming in to use my condo for a week and then my place is rented until mid February.
