December 21st, 2012, The Maya Calendar.


Of course it is getting closer to December 21, 2012 and when some people think the world is going to end.  I enjoyed the cartoon of one Maya saying to the other, someone is gonna be freaked out by this in a few centuries.

It is the same fear as the end of 1999 with Y2K.  I liked what some of my friends passed around on Facebook and I joined in.  If you think the world is going to end, give all your worldly goods to me.  We’ve had no takers.  :)

The entire thing just means the end of an era, not the planet, but there is no convincing some people.

Also, for you baseball fans out there, there is one important thing.  The Chicago Cubs did NOT win the World Series this year.  If they had, THEN I might be scanning the skies for the Four Horsemen.

The 21st of December is a week from Friday.  Calling in would be tough.  This is Mike Charton, and I am calling in because the world ended?  Would I get through?  Would I be able to call.

When I wake up at four a.m. on that morning, I will know the world is still there and I have to get up for the bus and go to work.

And life goes on, and the band played on.

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
