WTF - Trump America?

WTF - Trump America?
So we elected a fucking nightmare. Not in my lifetime have I felt so disgusted with our country. Trump isn’t up to the task. He wanted a win to show all of us how important he is. However, he will now hold our most powerful position. Guess what? He’s going to sell off and undo... Read more »

Wonderfully Weird - Can my shirt help the Cubs?

Wonderfully Weird - Can my shirt help the Cubs?
I’m a kook. Not like walking down the sidewalk screaming the “End is Near!” But odd, like I think the shirt I wear determines if the Cubs win or lose. I’m serious. It rules my world. I actually look at clothes as if they can control the world around me. College football…same thing. I won’t wear... Read more »

I've got the Election Blues

I've got the Election Blues
No matter the venue, website, or discussion.  Tis the season for political banter.  I, for one, am so sick of all of it.  I have been getting more and more worked up as every tweet, post, and poll hits the web.  Should I mention that I add a lot of those posts.  I think I need to... Read more »

Colorado Adventure - My glimpse into a legalized society

Colorado Adventure - My glimpse into a legalized society
I’ve been to the promise land friends. I traveled there by rail. It was magical. It was totally retro too. For those scoring at home, I recently visited friends and family in Colorado. In case you’ve been hiding in a bomb shelter, that great state has legalized Marijuana. Aside from the legal buzz, I must... Read more »

Trumping Nightmare: It was bound to happen

Trumping Nightmare: It was bound to happen
It happened last night. After weeks and months of posting memes, and stories, and links, and rants about the “Donald,” he showed up in my dreams last night. I was working for him. He was terrible. Made me do silly things like put on his socks. I think I need to chill on this election.... Read more »

Pick a winner - or not?

Pick a winner - or not?
As a major city in our great nation, I believe we have the responsibility to “act the part.” Be the City that earned its reputation as the “city with broad shoulders.” But let’s face it, this year hasn’t been kind to us. Chicago has been taking it on the chin. Our gun violence is beyond... Read more »

Wanna look smart? Start asking questions

Wanna look smart?  Start asking questions
You know…I always thought I should try and be the smartest guy in the room.   I wanted to have the answers.  I wanted to be in the “know.” But that just ain’t in my cards. Lucky for me I’ve come to understand that it’s more important to know how to ask the “right questions”... Read more »

When it rains it pours...sweat

When it rains it pours...sweat
I am a large man.  Big in size.  Big in heart.  Big in my ability to sweat.  I’m talking cartoon amounts of sweat.  No I don’t have to have surgery, or put those odd sponges, or anything odd like that.  However, when these summer days get steamy – I go hiding in doors.  You should... Read more »

A modern desert oasis - trying to keep up with the Joneses

A modern desert oasis - trying to keep up with the Joneses
Keeping up with the Joneses can be a real pain in the ass.  And wallet.  And pride. When we moved to Chicago more than five years ago we stumbled upon an area we fell in love with immediately.  Roscoe Village (North Center) was right up our alley.  Everyone here has a dog.  Everyone has young...

One small victory for man - One giant leap for my parenting ego

One small victory for man - One giant leap for my parenting ego
My son has informed me that he would one of the big houses that line the several streets we walk through to get to his neighborhood school. “Two new ones are being built right now,” he notes.  “Can we get one?” Now I’ve learned sarcasm doesn’t yet play with my kids.  Their still forming little...
