Ric Dalberri, Founder,

Hi. Welcome to my Blog. My  name is Ric Dalberri, founder of Retirement USA ® where you can find many articles and opinions for your consideration.

I am now retired living in South Florida for a quarter century. I’m a graduate of Columbia State University and have been involved in my own business (sold) employing over 100 individuals. I  was also employed for over a decade in the banking industry with one of the
largest financial institutions as a Financial Specialist and a top producer. I’ve held two securities licenses, three insurance licenses, 2 real estate licenses as well as being a notary.

During my career, I have been interviewed by newspaper reporters for my business, written many articles for trade publications as well as article based web sites. I have also had the opportunity to be on T.V. as a voice over and as a judge for  T.V. commercials.

You all see below a picture of Humpty Dumpty with the phrase “Humpty
Dumpty was pushed”. The character is portrayed as an anthropomorphic (ascribing
human characteristics to things not human) egg.

Most children are familiar with this nursery rhyme. I coined the phraseHumpty Dumpty was pushed” over thirty years ago. That’s right,bring in the C.S.I. and start the forensics.




I felt we’re taught from infancy to just accept what we read or what we’re told for granted. So, I felt the need to apply C.S.I. (Cognitive, Self-educated, & Insightful)
by using all resources available to determine the facts. This way, anyone could reach
their own opinion.

The fact that Humpty Dumpty is an egg is not actually stated in the rhyme. In its first printed form, in 1810, it is a riddle, and exploits for misdirection the fact that Humpty Dumpty was 18th-century reduplicative slang for a short, clumsy person. Whereas a clumsy person falling off a wall would not likely be irreparably damaged, an egg would be.

The rhyme is no longer posed as a riddle, since the answer
is now so well known. As you read the rhyme (perhaps the first time in a very
long time) keep in mind “Humpty Dumpty was pushed” and see if you have a
different conclusion.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men

Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

Our Blog is designed for your C.S.I.
to determine  what your Cognitive Self-educated Insightfulness
says. You alone will come to your conclusion on the subjects you find here.
Have fun and enjoy our Blog…..’providing a voice for seniors™’
