April the Giraffe finally had her baby. We've been teased for months. Every day was going to be the day. Finally!! Phew!! But oh man, they turned off the live camera. What nonsense are we going to follow now? How can we go on without April?
I’ve been taking a little break for the last week. Did you miss me? Did you even know I was gone? HA! Last Monday, I made my acting debut in a local play and it scarred me so much I went into hiding for a week. I’ll be writing about that later today so beware.... Read more »

My advice to politicians: stop making comparisons to Hitler

My advice to politicians: stop making comparisons to Hitler
It’s been a bad week for people invoking the name of Adolf Hitler. Real bad. Worse for them than Adolf himself. It started with Presidential Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Oh Spicey why? During a press briefing, he was defending the administrations decision to bomb a Syrian airfield. That’s cool. That’s his job. But then the... Read more »

How can you tell when Donald Trump and his people are lying?

How can you tell when Donald Trump and his people are lying?
This morning I opened my refrigerator to get some juice. The light started flickering. No biggie…just change the light bulb, right? Then I put something in the microwave. 5, 4, 3…It started beeping. That’s how it works, right? But…… I started thinking. Maybe I’m being spied on by the government? It could happen. That’s what... Read more »

You never stop missing your parents

You never stop missing your parents
It’s another March 1st and it’s another of my mother’s birthdays. It’s the fourteenth one of these that she’s missed. Damn cigarettes. Damn cancer. To call my mother a character would be understating things. I have so many stories about her that I can write these things for months. My mother didn’t start to drive... 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.
