The purpose of Mr. Dickie's Blog is to provide a place where I can post quotations I like and write about things that are on my mind. As of the summer of 2011 I have NetworkedBlogs posting a link to this blog to Facebook.
What people resist about change is being changed. They want to be enticed and supported, but not forced. They like to think that changes in their behavior are born of their own motivation to be better people, and they want to take credit for their own growth. They don't want to be made to change; they want to make the change themselves and they want to think it was their idea.

I have been retired from the U.S. government for many years. I was a long time paying member of AOL until May 2009. Until October 2008 I had a fairly extensive genealogy website on AOL. They dropped support.
