Can a White Sox fan and a Cubs fan find lust, love and romance together?

Can a White Sox fan and a Cubs fan find lust, love and romance together?
Chocolate or vanilla? Coke or Pepsi? Thin crust or thick crust pizza? Jets or Sharks? Yeah, there’s all kinds of opposite interests in relationships. What if one person likes chocolate ice cream and the other likes vanilla…and we’re not talking 50 Shades vanilla…at least not yet. At least they both like ice cream, right? What? No ice cream?!...

The Trump administration finally gives bloggers respect...sorta

The Trump administration finally gives bloggers respect...sorta
In this strange era of Donald Trump, you have to move quick if you want to keep up. Things happen fast and end just as fast. The shelf life of a particular event is about one day. Okay…maybe a bit longer…but two or three at the most. You don’t believe me? The Stormy interview on 60... Read more »

I'm trying to get off Donald Trump's email list

I'm trying to get off Donald Trump's email list
But her emails…. Yeah, we’ve heard a lot about Hillary’s emails but what about Donald’s emails? I’m not talking about his internal emails. I’m concerned about the ones he and his minions send to us. Who am I kidding…the ones he send to ME!! Yep…I’m on the President’s mailing list. I think I know how... Read more »

The week in review: March 12-17

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was fired this week. He found out in a tweet. 
Here's a pro tip for all of you, no matter what your profession is: Don't call your boss a "fucking moron" and expect to survive in your gig...even if he is....especially if he is.
Happy St. Paddy’s Day It’s been another strange, bizarre week……but it always is in Trumpville. But it’s not just Donnie. We have a few other interesting events. Instead of rambling (and how about those Loyola Ramblers) for a 1000 words on each one, let’s put them all in a single gallery. Here we go….oy!!!  ... Read more »

I failed the Jeopardy online test

I failed the Jeopardy online test
It was March 30, 1964. A new daytime game show premiered on NBC. The host was Art Fleming. The announcer was the pre-Saturday Night Live, Don Pardo. It was the start of Jeopardy. Even a young age, my mind was always filled with useless information. Math multiplication tables, not so great. The lifetime batting average... Read more »

Winter Olympics 2018: Two weeks of watching games you didn't care about

Winter Olympics 2018: Two weeks of watching games you didn't care about
It was Friday night at about 1:30 am. I was watching the United States play Sweden for a gold medal….IN CURLING!! They had just finished the third end and the bonspiel was tied at three each. We still had seven ends to go and I knew I needed to make a decision. Could I make... Read more »

A power point presentation about kidney stone surgery doesn't make it any cooler

A power point presentation about kidney stone surgery doesn't make it any cooler
Back in October, I felt a little pressure in my bladder. Okay..I’m lying to myself and all of you, it was a lot of pressure. Like an elephant was doing sit ups down there kind of pressure. I ran off to my local emergency room on a Sunday morning to get it checked but I... Read more »

Taking a break from the news has made me mentally heathier

Taking a break from the news has made me mentally heathier
Following politics in the United States of America is a full time job. It’s also very stressful. Every day there is some sort of Breaking News event. The stress doubles…triples…whatever when you are obsessive in your need to know every single thing, every single day. I was an MSNBC junkie. That obsession started during the... 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.
