The week in review: The Stormy Seattle edition

The week in review: The Stormy Seattle edition
I’m on a quest to visit all fifty states. It’s a bucket list thing. The magic number going into this year was ten. A friend has been working a temp gig in Seattle. Cheap airfare and free lodging made this trip a no-brainer. Off to Washington state for the first time. Nine states to go!... 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 »

National School Walkout: It's the student's day

National School Walkout: It's the student's day
It’s Wednesday, 10 am in Chicago and the Central time zone. Students at hundreds of high schools are walking out of their classes. They’re spending seventeen minutes in silence. It’s their tribute to the seventeen students killed in Florida a month ago today. It’s the way they are protesting gun violence in America. My plan... 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 »

There's a dead person on my bus

There's a dead person on my bus
I’ve been riding public transportation since I was a child….a long, long time ago. My earliest memories are of getting on the Skokie Swift, transferring to a B train, heading down to the Addison stop so we could see the Cubs play. The price was 29 cents. Like I said, it was a long, long... Read more »

It's past time to get the guns

It's past time to get the guns
 “The other piece of legislation is the crime bill. As of today, it no longer exists. I’m throwing it out. I’m throwing it out and writing a law that makes sense. You cannot address crime prevention without getting rid of assault weapons and hand guns. I consider them a threat to national security, and I... 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.
