This is one man's story.

I took this project on partly out of curiosity and partly to leave a monument to my family and the kin to come. I did not know how it was going to go. I started off the same way any of you would. Ancestry.com or Genealogy.com and FamilyTreeMaker.com; I used them all. The next thing you know I have some basic crappy information of family members I already knew and a sizeable dent in my debit account. My faith in the project’s success had been momentarily derailed.

I started to wonder if searching public records could yield a more promising result. The... Read More

Summer time is the best time for hunting! Hunting insects that is... according to the children 10 years old and under, who hang around my house all summer.

The thick freshly cut green grass is a tempting draw to the mighty bug hunters. They can't wait to finish breakfast so they can race outside and find all the hidden treasures living in the sweet smelling blades. It's worth the risk of scraped knees to crawl around and find the things that jump high and far, and others that are long and fuzzy and tickle your hand when you hold them. And who can resist the challenge of escaping a sting... Read More

Children on streets are becoming too numerous in Africa. This is due to several factors like lack of social and political interest to protect them as the future for the national development. But despite this, I still believe that we are not waiting to revive Jonathan Swift’s A Modest Proposal to the Irish government in the wake of increased street children on Irish streets, to consent to the plight in our countries. In fact, in the minds of Swift, since there were many street children whom the city and perhaps government authorities had failed to contain or rid off the streets, the said children... Read More

A couple of Yogi Berra's teammates on the Yankees ball club swear that one night the stocky catcher was horrified to see a baby toppling off the roof of a cottage across the way from him. Yogi dashed over and made a miraculous catch - but then force of habit proved too much for him. He straightened up and neatly threw the baby to second base.

Baby caught and just fine. Babies are resilient. Since my good friends Jim and Morgan Olson had waited to have children, in honor of his paternal ancestors, Jr, known as Ken Olson, was not getting any circumcision. Circumcision has gotta hurt. Circumcision... Read More

Albinism is also called achromia, achromasia or achromatosis. This is a congenital disorder characterized by the complete or partial absence of pigment in the skin, hair and eyes due to deficiency of an enzyme involved in the production of melanin. Indeed, albinism results from inheritance of recissive gene alleles.

Here in Africa, and particularly in Tanzania and in Burundi, this defect is often associated with bad luck and the latter has connotations with malediction or witchcraft. However, some Africans believe that the body of albinos contains some mysteries. For this reason, African... Read More

My father’s mind was a tidy place. As was his sock drawer; and his car; and his desktop, where the implements of his trade were meticulously laid each evening in anticipation of the next day’s feast. There would be memos to write, letters to open, correspondence to read. A file for everything and everything in its file. Organize, deputize, supervise – my father’s mantra.

He was enormously successful: successful as an attorney, and as an industrialist, and as a husband and a father and a brother and a friend. He employed hundreds of people in America and in Europe; and gave generously... Read More

Having a look throughout the Great Lakes Region of Africa, GLR, ie Burundi, the Congo and Rwanda, we find that women are not well represented in the professional area, government and leadership positions except in Rwanda. Rwanda is the first country in the world that employs more women than men in the public sector. Precisely in the government they represent 52%, except in the army. In this field, they are also more represented compared to Burundi and the Congo. In these two countries, women are extremely less representative within the armed forces; they always lag behind their counterpart... Read More
