“There’s been a murder”, Wifey said. “Where?” sayeth I Wifey pointed to an area about 200 yards away on the other side of Highway 101, the Pacific Coast Highway. For the purposes of perspectives, we were on the deck of the home my brother rents in Encinitas, California enjoying the breeze after spending time at... Read more »
My Stomach Turnith Over. I have to admit I’ve been disgusted by the campaign of unfitDonald from the very beginning. Wifey swore at the presumptuous Republican candidate when he made fun of a handicapped person. Now she actually leaves the room when he appears on TV. She hates him that much!

The 4th of July is always an enjoyable holiday, but you never know what one incident will stay with you after the holiday. For Wifey and me it wasn’t the large afternoon gathering at a friend’s home.

I get tired of seeing bullshit on sites like The Conservative Standard. Just to see if... Read more »

Are The Presidential Primaries Getting To You? They Are Disgusting Me And so it goes, on and on. Lies, misstatements, over exaggerations and even more bullshit.

People Often Ask “How Do You Spend Your Days Now That You’ve Retired? Good question! Unfortunately we spend most of our time keeping the medical profession active and working. Let’s take last week as an example: Monday, a delightful time was spent in the dentist’s chair. Deep gum cleaning is such a great time! Tuesday,... Read more »
Frustrations Caused By Technology For years I’ve had the same AOL account and password. But now I can’t get into the account on my computer.
