Do they really think I want to join the 45 CLUB?

A few days ago I received an email from the Republican National Committee. No big deal. I usually get something from them every day. I almost immediately hit delete, but this one caught my eye. They’re forming a new club and would like me to be one of its charter members. Get this: We would... Read more »

We don't round up to 70

When my daughter was much younger, she had a rote answer when asked her age. She would round it up to the next number. “I’m almost 11” was the response even before she had her half-birthday. The same thing the following year…and so on. She doubled down on this by telling us that even on... Read more »

Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee: Stop asking me for money!!

It started in February of 2016. I didn’t know that my relationship with these people was going to go on for more than five years. I’d like to end this, but I’m not sure how to do it. Maybe this blog post will do it? I doubt it, but it’s worth the effort. Word on... Read more »

Which celebrity Medicare expert do you believe?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. No, not Thanksgiving. No, not Christmas. It’s that month-plus long time when you can choose from various Medicare coverage plans. That means until the end of the year, we’ll be inundated with commercials that tell you to check your zip code to see if you qualify for... Read more »

Jake from State Farm should stop hanging with Aaron Rodgers

By now we all know the sordid story of Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He lied about getting the Covid vaccination by saying that he was immunized against the virus. His lie changes plenty of things for his teammate’s seasons and possibly their lives. Rodgers won’t be playing in Sunday’s game against the Kansas... Read more »

How did we get by without six hours of Facebook and Instagram?

Yesterday, I took a few hours off from social media to run some errands. It was tough, but I made it through. When I returned, I found a text informing me that Facebook was down. Phew!

    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.
