Donald Trump has a better chance to be re-elected in 2020 than being impeached and convicted

Pretty strange week in Trumpville….even for Trumpville. It was just seven days ago that we saw Donald in Helsinki, with his BFF Vlad Putin. After spending two hours alone together, the two buds stood behind podiums and chatted with reporters. Donnie shockingly took the side of the Russians at the expense of his own intelligence...

The words you were looking for are Thank You

The words you were looking for are Thank You
All I wanted was some ice cream. I like to think of myself as generous. I like to give money to people living in the street. Not all the time and not that much…maybe a couple of times a week and usually a dollar or some change. When I don’t, I always wish the person well. It’s... Read more »

Twenty musicians who suffer from hearing loss

Three of the four members of The Who have had hearing issues and the only reason the fourth, Keith Moon, didn't is because he died forty years ago. Pete Townshend is almost deaf. John Entwistle became a lip reader to overcome his hearing loss. Roger Daltrey is now the musical voice of safety when playing/listening to music
Yesterday, I wrote about hearing problems due to listening to loud music. Today’s followup is a look at musicians who have these same problems. While these musicians are mostly loud rockers, there are some surprises. Here’s a gallery of musicians with ear issues:   Related Post: Do you use ear protection at concerts? Type your...

Do you use ear protection at concerts?

Do you use ear protection at concerts?
On June 25th, I was at the Roger Daltrey rock concert at the Ravinia Festival in the north burbs of Chicago. Near the halfway point of the concert, I leaned over and asked the person I was with “Is it really loud in here?” When the show was over, my ears ached and I had... Read more »

How do you decide who to cheer for in the World Cup?

How do you decide who to cheer for in the World Cup?
World Cup 2018 fever!! Catch it!! Okay…okay…let me take it down a notch or five. I’ve tried to like soccer all my life. We played it at summer camp and it was fun, but really it was just a bunch of ten year olds running around a field. But that was playing the game, not... Read more »

There should be sunscreen dispensers at MLB stadiums

There should be sunscreen dispensers at MLB stadiums
The Chicago Cubs just finished a successful eight game home stand. Seven wins and only one loss. They even took two of three games from those pesky Cincinnati Reds. All of the games were played during the day time hours. Very unusual, even for a team that does play most of their games in the... Read more »

Did I miss the Second Civil War?

Did I miss the Second Civil War?
July 4th. Independence Day. America’s birthday. Parades. Cookouts.  Fireworks. Civil War. Yep, you read that right. Yesterday was the day that Democrats were going to start the Second Civil War. That’s what Alex Jones said. He wouldn’t lie to us, would he? Plus, if there’s going to be a revolution, July 4 sounds like it... 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.
