It’s the end of the month. Your rent/mortgage is paid. You’ve put food on the table for your family. All the bills are paid. You take a look at your financial spreadsheet and notice there’s a surplus….a big surplus. It doesn’t occur very often so you’re not quite sure what to do with this extra... Read more »

Are Donald Trump Jr., Robert Kraft, Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin and the Alabama State Senate privileged? The week in review in the world of privilege
If you live in America and are white, you are privileged. If you live in America and have money, you are privileged. That’s not anything that 95% of you don’t already know. For the other 5% that deny this or aren’t totally sure, ask yourself this; if it isn’t true, how did Donald Trump ever... Read more »

After heart surgery, Mick still "Moves Like Jagger"
It was almost two months ago that the Rolling Stones announced they were forced to postpone their upcoming summer tour. Mick Jagger was undergoing surgery to replace a heart valve. Fans of the band were “Shattered.” Millions had purchased pricey tickets, myself included, looking forward to a night of great music with the legends. We’re disappointed the... Read more »

The week in review: shooting, lies, chicken and overtime

We start with the shooting at  the Chabad of Poway synagogue. One died with three others injured. The first reaction, which included one from our President, is "it looks like it may be a hate crime." Umm...let's see...Jews shot, in a house of worship, on the final day of Passover...thinking my first reaction would be more than "may be." Idiot! I'm surprised he didn't break out the "good people on both sides" line. Idiot!
It was a very eclectic week in the news. Shootings, politics and sports took the lead. Let’s take a look: Type your email address in the box and click the “create subscription” button. My list is completely spam free, and you can opt out at any time.

When in Memphis, you have to go to the National Civil Rights Museum

When you think of Memphis, what comes to mind? Elvis and Graceland. Music on Beale Street. Sun and Stax studios. Barbeque! Yet all pale in comparison to the National Civil Rights Museum. Built on the same ground as the Lorraine Motel, where Dr. Martin Luther King was assassinated in 1968, it tells the story of... Read more »

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 »

Happy election day, Chicago. Today’s the day we elect a new Mayor. Today’s the day we make a much needed change.

    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.
