Before retiring, Jack worked at IBM for over 28 years. His articles have over 120,000 views.


Here are a few items on my agenda for 2019. It is good to put them down on paper. This will keep me focused and remind me what is important.

- Dec. 2018

My Top Ten List...

Improve my stamina while exercising and fencing. My goal this year is to reach a 10 touch bout. Currently, I only do 5 touches and rest in between bouts.

Track my expenses every month. I already track my investments. This year, I will track my actual expenses and see how they match up against my budget, and income.

Help my alma mater CCNY through various initiatives, the Alumni group, Archives, and the Varsity Fencing team...

Continue my writing and publishing on HubPages. So far, I have published 600 articles. My goal is two article per week on average.

Plan a 10 days trip to Italy in May of this year.

Plan a fencing reunion in May, in conjunction with the Hall of Fame dinner.

Sell my lot in Florida.

Clean out my basement and garage.

Loose 10 pounds by going on a keto diet. My target weight is 170 pounds.

Learn to play the clarinet.


A resolutions list is a guide to keep one on target. My top ten for 2019 is set. I hope to accomplish all of them by year end.
