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 »

Songs for my daughter Amy on her birthday
It was twenty-eight years ago today that my daughter Amy made her way into the world. I’ll never forget holding her for the first time, putting my finger in her tiny hand and she grabbed it tight.

    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.
