My wife wants me to get a new motorcycle, but I just can't get myself to do it

My wife wants me to get a new motorcycle, but I just can't get myself to do it
My riding buddies all agree that I’m in the enviable position of having a wife who wants me buy a new motorcycle.  The weird thing is that I just can’t bring myself to do it. I could say that it’s not about the money, but we all know that when anyone says it’s not about... Read more »

It’s the last Wednesday of the month and this is Blogapalooz Hour, right in the middle of the Democratic National Convention. I’ve been watching presidential nominating conventions for a long time, but this is different.  We just nominated a woman to be the Democratic candidate for President of the United States.  This is really something....

Donald Trump, alphabetically speaking

Donald Trump, alphabetically speaking
This is just a little word play.  Following the GOP presumptive nominee’s lead, I tried to think of disparaging descriptives like, “lying Ted,” “little Marco” and “crooked Hillary.” My goal was to come up with 3 words for each letter of the alphabet which might apply to Don the Con.  It’s meant to be funny,...

Donald Trump challenges Bill Clinton to the cage match of the century

Donald Trump challenges Bill Clinton to the cage match of the century
Donald Trump has challenged Bill Clinton to an old fashioned cage match, much like the “Two-men-enter-one-man-leaves” thing from Mad Max. Let’s look at the tale of the tape.  Both men are 6 feet 2 inches tall, which is a little spooky all by itself.  They’re also both 69 years old.  What are the chances? Donnie... Read more »

Comments, opinions and other great thoughts

Comments, opinions and other great thoughts
It turns out that everyone is not entitled to an opinion. Reading comments posted on the internet often leaves me scratching my head.  Sometimes they are insightful, clever or humorous, but not usually. A fellow named, Felix Christopher posted the following comment after an article by Dennis Byrne entitled, “Where does Donald Trump stand on... Read more »

O say can you "C - word"

O say can you "C - word"
Paula Deen’s in the news again, this time for some brown paint on her son’s face.  Some “I Love Lucy” thing tweeted out by her social secretary.  Not a Paula Deen fan, but this one’s really stretching the politically correct banner to its limits. Last time Deen was in trouble it involved the n-word and... Read more »

Tomorrow: Fact or fiction?
          The only problem with getting a topic at 9:00 PM about which you must publish a finished, cogent blog by 10:00 PM is…the whole thing.  That’s the problem, the whole thing. Producing an impromptu blog in an hour isn’t necessarily harder than having all day to do it, especially when... Read more »
