There is an old saying that goes like this, "You can't teach an old dog new tricks." I have recently been informed by my daughter the psychology major that it is just not true. Not only can you teach an old dog new tricks, I too can be taught. I am not sure that I believe her 100% but I am willing to endeavor to learn a new trick just to prove that phrase untrue.
I am now turning over a new leaf and on the path of learning new tricks. I have reached the conclusion that no one wants to learn from my mistakes or be prevented from making similar ones, so this blog is going to take a new turn. I guess that my new attitude and new direction make the title of this blog more than apropos. So here goes and only time will tell whether the new leaf was truly new and that tricks which weren't part of the repertoire have now been acquired.
