Foo Fighters SNL medley is the greatest rock Christmas song of all-time

Foo Fighters SNL medley is the greatest rock Christmas song of all-time
I hate Christmas music. It’s not a bah humbug the season sucks kind of thing; I just think most of it is inane and a waste of whatever medium it’s on. Rock musicians should do what they do best and for almost all of them….no….for every single one of them, it isn’t Christmas songs. For... Read more »

To Doug Jones and the people of Alabama: Thank you
2017 has been a bad year in the United States of America. Actually it goes back a little further…to November 8. 2016. It seems there has been a Breaking News moment every day. We reached a new low yesterday. Our sitting president slut-shamed a sitting United States Senator. He basically called her a whore. Hopefully that’s... Read more »

The irony of today's Sarah Huckabee Sanders press briefing

The irony of today's Sarah Huckabee Sanders press briefing
Do you ever watch Sarah Sanders daily press briefing? If you don’t, you should. Turn on any cable news channel at around 1pm Central time. It’s thirty minutes of pure entertainment. If you can get past all the lying, it’s must see tv. I admit she has a tough gig. It’s her job to represent... Read more »

Newspaper columnists, magazines and yes bloggers….we all do it. But I’ll go one better. I can... Read more »

It's the good kind of Cancer

It's the good kind of Cancer
It’s December. That means two things. Winter and the dermatologist. Today, the former, not so much. The later, yeah, yeah, yeah! I have a standing date with Dr. Emily. Twice a year we hook up for a full body check. Every June and again in December, she gets to check me out. It’s like that... Read more »

Tonight’s topic is to write about a time you had to say goodbye. Everyone has those moments. Parents die. Children become adults and get married. Jobs come to an end.... Read more »

Giving Tuesday is over: What are you doing now to help?

Giving Tuesday is over: What are you doing now to help?
Another Giving Tuesday has come and gone. It started five years ago as a response to the commercialism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s an opportunity for people to forget about themselves and help others for the holiday season. Giving Tuesday is a wonderful idea and very successful. Among the organizations I saw people donating... Read more »

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
