I'll always be conflicted about Golf, The Masters, Augusta National and Tiger Woods

I'll always be conflicted about Golf, The Masters, Augusta National and Tiger Woods
The year was 1965. I was thirteen years old and in junior high. I spent my summer making the big bucks by being a caddie. By big bucks, I mean four dollars for carrying a heavy bag for eighteen holes in the hot sun. Since it takes about four hours to play a round of... Read more »

Did Toni Preckwinkle take campaigning lessons from Hillary Clinton?

Did Toni Preckwinkle take campaigning lessons from Hillary Clinton?
We have a new Mayor-elect in Chicago. For the first time, voters in the city have elected an African-American woman. Surprisingly, no shockingly, it’s not the African-American woman you would have been sure would have won just six months ago. Like her or hate her, Toni Preckwinkle was the most qualified candidate to become the... Read more »

Are you disappointed in the Mueller Report?

Are you disappointed in the Mueller Report?
Collusion Obstruction? After two years, the short version of Robert Mueller’s report came in on Sunday….or at least what the Attorney General wanted you to see. Is anyone really surprised by what we’ve heard? For those of you who thought this was going to be the end of Donald Trump’s presidency, what did you think... Read more »

The lies of Donald Trump-The week in review: The liar, liar, pants on fire edition

This is Judge Amy Berman Jackson. Last week she sentenced former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort. During the sentencing, she made clear that this case had nothing to do with the Russian collusion investigation. It took Trump about thirty seconds to say he was vindicated and this showed that there was no collusion. LIAR!
Our current president lying to the public and himself is nothing new. It’s been said that Donald Trump has told more than 8,000 lies in his two years in office. There’s no reason to be surprised when he does this, but some weeks are worse than others. This seems to be one of those. Let’s... Read more »

Are George and Kellyanne Conway screwing with all of us?

Are George and Kellyanne Conway screwing with all of us?
(sing to the theme of The Jetson’s) Meet George Conway. His wife Kellyanne. It’s Washington’s most bizarre power couple. They’ve been married for eighteen years. They have four young children. Nothing abnormal about this. She helped Donald Trump get elected POTUS and now works for him. He hates her boss and lets everyone know it... Read more »

The music of legendary drummer, Hal Blaine

Hal Blaine behind the drums in 1970. He was at his peak as a studio musician.
There’s a name for the studio musicians who play behind the scene. These mostly unknown group of session players are called sideman. They’re the ones who have the musical skills to put onto a record the dreams of writers and producers. The most famous of these musicians was called “The Wrecking Crew.” In the 1960’s-early...

I voted for Mayor but I'm still undecided
Election day 2019. Time to pick a new Mayor of Chicago….or at least get it down to the final two for April’s runoff election. There are fourteen candidates on the ballot. How, in the name of whatever deity you believe in, are we supposed to get it down to one? Hmmm…maybe that’s why last week,... Read more »

Is there anything more icky than having sex with a used condom?

Is there anything more icky than having sex with a used condom?
It was 2013. The Lakeview area of Chicago. I walked into my new primary physician’s office for the first time. I’m at the front desk to check in before my appointment. There’s a big plastic bowl on the counter. Cool…they have candy. I reach in hoping for a Butterfinger or maybe a Milky Way. Hmmm…that... 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.
