Who did it worse: The Chicago Bears drafting and developing quarterbacks or Chicago voters electing Mayors?

The Chicago Bears football team got their man! They made a trade to move up in the NFL draft and were able to draft the quarterback that will lead them into the future….again. Super Bowl here we come…again. Nothing against Justin Fields, in fact, I’m excited to see him come to Chicago…and I’m not a... Read more »

Mick Jagger is pandemicking like the rest of us

It’s been more than a year since most of the world headed down to their basement. Thirteen months of too much tv, too much delivered dinners and groceries, too much Zoom, too much disease and death, too much of everything. It’s been more than a year of boredom for everyone….and by everyone I really do... Read more »

The Oklahoma Sooners basketball team needs a rabbi

What a weekend of college hoops. The NCAA basketball tournament got underway and it was upsetpalooza. Things were so discombobulated that although I haven’t checked my brackets this morning, I’m pretty sure losing three of my final four teams, including my championship pick, means I’m not going to win any of the numerous pools that...

What am I missing about the royal family?

Elizabeth Phillip Charles William Kate Harry Meghan What is the big deal with these people? Why the fascination? What do they actually do? Yes, I watched the big interview with Oprah last night. Yes, I felt sorry for Harry and Megs….sort of. But, I’m still trying to figure out what makes them such a big... Read more »

The clusterfuck of working the Covid-19 vaccination system

The clusterfuck of working the Covid-19 vaccination system
28 million cases of Covid-19 in the United States! 500,000 of us have died! The numbers are daunting. That’s how many Americans have been lost to the Covid-19 pandemic. While all the disease and death has been tragic, it appears we are seeing the light at the end of the dark tunnel. Vaccinations! In the... Read more »

It took a procrastinator only one day to buy a new television

It took a procrastinator only one day to buy a new television
There’s a fine line between taking the time to do the research to make an informed decision and being a procrastinator. It’s a very fine line. I cross that line, moving back and forth, often. For instance, two years ago I needed a new laptop. I narrowed it down to two models. Then the research... Read more »

Why are there so many stupid drug commercials?

Why are there so many stupid drug commercials?
Oh…Oh…Oh…Ozempic! Did you sing the above words as you read them? Of course, you did. You know the song and you know the commercial which you see multiple times every day. The television viewing public is being overwhelmed with pharmaceutical drug commercials. Humira, Xeljanz, Skyrizi, Eliquis and, of course, Oh…Oh..Oh…Ozempic. It’s become so bad that... Read more »

What will I write about when Donald Trump is gone?

What will I write about when Donald Trump is gone?
It was March 6, 2016. That was the day I wrote about Donald Trump for the first time. He was coming to Chicago for a rally and “Donald Trump doesn’t scare me” was a preview of the rally. A few days later, it was rally time. I wrote “Happy Trump Day” as a satirical look at... Read more »

My grandchild is way more popular than me!

My grandchild is way more popular than me!
Babies are cute! That’s a given. Everyone loves a newborn. I have a relatively new grandson. He turned four months old a couple of days ago. The novelty hasn’t worn off yet (does it ever and if so, when?), so I’m still sharing pictures of him on Facebook. I like the ones where he has... Read more »

The Week in Review: Donald Trump's Insurrection

It started on Tuesday night, with the two Georgia Democrats winning their Senate run-off elections. This now gives the Democrats control of the new Senate. And we thought that would be the highlight of the week.
The first full week of the new year was nothing like we’ve ever seen in America. From the Democrats winning the Senate, in Georgia to the attack on the Capitol building, in Washington D.C., it was quite the start to the new year. Let’s take a look at the lowlights in the first 2021 edition... 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.
