I voted for Mayor but I'm still undecided

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 »

I bought fake tickets to the Elton John concert

I bought fake tickets to the Elton John concert
It’s the final Elton John tour. At least, that’s what he says. I tend to be a little skeptical about these things. Cynic, yeah, that’s me. But, what if it really is his last round-up? Wouldn’t you want to be there, if it was possible? Of course you would. His final two local shows were... Read more »

Should I get a Roger Stone-like tattoo on my back?

Should I get a Roger Stone-like tattoo on my back?
Have you seen enough of Roger Stone lately? In the last week, he’s been the main topic on all the cable news channels. It started when he was arrested last Thursday. 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 »

Is Barron Trump a paid actor?

Is Barron Trump a paid actor?
It’s Christmas at the White House. The building is decked out for the holiday. Time for the traditional seasonal photograph. The tree is lovely. Don and Melania are dressed to the nines. It’s wonderful scene. It’s a wonderful portrait. There’s only one thing missing…. WHERE’S BARRON? Supposedly, Potus and Flotus have a twelve year old... Read more »

What did you do with your life when Facebook went down?

What did you do with your life when Facebook went down?
It was Monday. Noon. Two days ago but it seems much longer. I had just finished a new blog post. It was time to share it on my social media sites…and as long as I was there, I might as well hang out on the sites. Time to see what was going on in the... Read more »

The fragile ego of Donald Trump

The fragile ego of Donald Trump
Have you ever Googled yourself? I’m guessing most of us have. It’s interesting to see what comes up…if anything. For those of us with common names it can be a little disconcerting. I used to be at the bottom of the first page. Having a blog that publishes something a couple times a week gave... 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.
