Prop 8 and DOMA spark Red Facebook love

Prop 8 and DOMA spark Red Facebook love
The United States Supreme Court has wrapped up oral arguments in the case challenging California’s Proposition 8. Now we play the waiting game as we await their decision, as well as the hearing and ruling on the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act that should be heard tomorrow. As we wait to hear their ruling in... Read more »

Turn your passion into your profit!

Here it is the first Monday of 2013. I bet most people out there are dreading this first full week of work in the new year. Unfortunately, we must work because otherwise we would run out of money. With money being gone, we would become homeless, hungry, and depressed. So, as much as we would... Read more »

Top 10 Things to give up in 2013!

2013 is finally upon us. If you are like me, you are starting the year with a positive outlook and hoping that it is the best year yet. To help me in my attempt at the best year ever, I am doing all the traditional Southern “good luck” foods today. From black eyed peas and... Read more »

Making the decision to skip Christmas for a year...

I cannot believe that today is December 1st. Normally by the time December starts, I already have my Christmas Tree, Village, and lights up. Not this year though.

Job Report doesn't help those unemployed!

If you have seen any media reports today, you are well aware that the unemployment rate rose very slightly to 7.9% last month. That is up just .1% from the September rate. I think we can all agree that we are just happy the rate is still below 8%. In addition, though the rate went... Read more »

Since the day that Thomas Jefferson referred to Native Americans as “merciless Indian savages” in the Declaration of Independence, hate has been an American value.

Zeigler Chevrolet: A car dealer without the pressure.

Zeigler Chevrolet: A car dealer without the pressure.
I never deal with car matters. My partner fills it up with gas, and if it needs fixed, he handles it for me. Unfortunately, due to timing issues, that all changed last week. I had received a notice in the mail telling me to return my car to where I had purchased it because there... Read more »

Avoid negative influences on Social Media Outlets!

I cannot believe it has been almost a month since my last post. I guess life just got in the way. However, I am back, and I promise to do better. The main reason for my lack of blogging is that I had planned to take a week off to evaluate where I am in... Read more »

Do not hide your hate behind Chick-fil-A

I have avoided commenting on the whole Chick-fil-A thing because both sides, in my opinion, over reacted. I think almost every gay person I know knew that Chick-fil-A was anti-gay, and almost every straight person I knew ate at Chick-fil-A because they liked it. Up until now, I had assumed that most of my straight “friends”... Read more »

Looking for something to do? Look elsewhere!

Just on the heals of finding out that the Arlington Theater in Arlington Heights shut their doors, I find out that the AMF Bowling Alley in Rolling Meadows has shut down as well. The Arlington Theater, which closed due to a failure to reach a new lease deal, was one of my favorite hangout spots... Read more »
