Monday was the home opening day for the Cubs at Wrigley Field. Naturally it snowed. Game cancelled until the next day...when it was going to be about 35 degrees. April baseball in cold weather cities....Good Idea!!

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 »

The weekend in review: The Final Four/Easter edition

The fifteen minutes of fame for Loyola's Sister Jean is over. Looks like Michigan's 100 year old grandmother of former player Jalen Rose took her down. The good news for the 98 year old nun is the day after the Final Four loss, was Easter, so she could hang out with her main dude.

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
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 »

Wayne LaPierre and the NRA cares more about money than our children
“What many people don’t understand, or don’t want to understand, is that Wayne, Chris and the folks who work so hard at the @NRA are Great People and Great American Patriots. They love our Country and will do the right thing. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”-Donald Trump Yesterday morning I turned on the news and caught... Read more »

Adios 2017: You Won't Be Missed
We’re winding down on 2017. Two days left before we get a new year. We get a fresh start. THANK GOD!!! Let’s face it, 2017 sucked. To say it was stressful would be an understatement. Describing most of the stress and suckage would take only two words. DONALD TRUMP!!! When he was elected in November... Read more »

To Doug Jones and the people of Alabama: Thank you

To Doug Jones and the people of Alabama: Thank you
2017 has been a bad year in the United States of America. Actually it goes back a little further…to November 8. 2016. It seems there has been a Breaking News moment every day. We reached a new low yesterday. Our sitting president slut-shamed a sitting United States Senator. He basically called her a whore. Hopefully that’s... 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.
