Did Toni Preckwinkle take campaigning lessons from Hillary Clinton?
We have a new Mayor-elect in Chicago. For the first time, voters in the city have elected an African-American woman. Surprisingly, no shockingly, it’s not the African-American woman you would have been sure would have won just six months ago. Like her or hate her, Toni Preckwinkle was the most qualified candidate to become the... Read more »

The week in review: May 1-7

Chicago Cubs catcher Miguel Montero became a citizen of the United States last Monday. He ran into for Cubs pitcher Ryan Dempster, who is Canadian, and said to him, "Dude, get out of my country." Montero also pitched an inning for the Cubs on Saturday. It was his second pitching appearance of his career. One as a citizen of Venezuela and one as a US citizen.

Hard to believe but in about two weeks either Clinton or Trump will be "Elected".
Maybe we can vote Alice Cooper in instead?
Nineteen days left. Only nineteen crazy days. Doesn’t matter what side you’re supporting, this election cycle is driving you a little crazy. Okay…more than a little crazy. For more than a year, something strange happens every day. As much as you try, you can’t avoid it. This morning my blogger bud MBA Mom sent me... Read more »

Donald Trump: What's with the sniffing?

Donald Trump: What's with the sniffing?
“I haven’t heard so much sniffing since the days of Studio 54.” Some funny guy said that on Facebook during Monday night’s debate. Oh yeah, that funny dude was me. Do I really think the Donald was doing Coke before the debate? NOOOOO! “Notice Trump sniffing all the time? Coke user?” That was a Tweet... Read more »

Music for Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and their conventions

<iframe width="640" height="480" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/6_1uEIdjRQU" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
The Republicans took over Cleveland, home of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and LeBron James would tell you that "Cleveland Rocks"
Music is a big part of political conventions and campaigns. Politicians pick songs that they think fit their image and make them seem hip. A lot of time they do it without the permission of the artists that wrote and performed those songs. This week we’ve heard from Queen, The Turtles and Earth, Wind &... 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.
