The FBI knocked on his door at 6am. Yeah, it’s fairly early, but nothing outrageous. Next he claimed he was treated worse than Osama... Read more »

It was the year of living in danger for the media

It was the year of living in danger for the media
“Love to bump into you in a dark alley. Your entire outlook would change and trust me you would never talk shat about our President or his family again. Tough guy with a keyboard. Actually you are nothing but a bully coward.” It happens a couple of times a year. Someone doesn’t like something I’ve... Read more »

Steve Winwood and Joan Jett join Michael J. Fox to fight Parkinson's Disease
When you think of Michael J. Fox, what first comes to mind? Is it Alex P.

    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.
