“Call me Ishmael”. These are three of the most famous opening words ever written. It is, of course the opening line to Melville’s masterpiece, Moby Dick. It was the first movie I ever saw on the big screen. I was seven years old and my mom took me to see it at the old Belmont […]

So here we are seven weeks into Woody’s Words and Wit. I met up with three of my favorite people this weekend. I was invited to golf in an outing by the woman who hired me to Xerox Corporation in 1985. She, I and two other former / fellow employees teed it up at Silver […]
