They Did it Again

So some chefs are starting to use marijuana products in their dishes. Took long enough. And they wonder why the clientele is very happy, talkative, and have that unmistakable glow you get when you ingest a decent amount of THC. Don’t you notice how being stoned enhances your senses anyway? The depth of the platesContinue reading “They Did it Again”

Mourning

Obviously, I did not post a blog to mark the season-opening loss to the Ohio State Buckeyes. It wasn’t the romp everyone expected, but it was starting to look like if the game were just a bit longer, the score would have been more lopsided. My boys were wearing down against the huge linemen ofContinue reading “Mourning”

I Made a Girl Cry

Arguably my finest hour. I was playing Your Song by Elton John, and as I was finishing the last chorus, Karen nodded to me and directed my attention to the bartender. She was a pretty young blonde girl and she explained that her grandfather’s favorite song for his wife was this same song. You alreadyContinue reading “I Made a Girl Cry”

Cheers

I take shots at pretty much everything here, on my little, tiny piece of the internet. I don’t bullshit, despite possessing one of the world’s greatest stockpiles of it. I don’t give a shit about politics; I usually let the Domestic Despot send in our ballots, that is how interested I am. Besides, let’s faceContinue reading “Cheers”

Mr. Big (mouth)

I left a lucrative career in the food service industry for the opportunity to start up my own company, in this adventure, a contracting/construction business in northwest Ohio. I mean I started this company from the ground up. Not far removed from my pool shark days of Las Vegas, I went to a local tavernContinue reading “Mr. Big (mouth)”

Pure Love

I experienced it last night at the Lucky Star Brewery. It was not the crowd I had hoped for, but you will catch every musician saying that at one time or another. My friend Sarah Denny showed up. She is a trip (and a budding ukulele star). It was when there were just a fewContinue reading “Pure Love”

I’m Calling Your Bluff

I have decided that the very next time that I get a recorded message when I am calling ANYWHERE IN THE UNIVERSE that says that I need to listen carefully because the menu options have changed, it will be the proverbial “last straw” in my bale. You absolutely cannot tell me that you change yourContinue reading “I’m Calling Your Bluff”

Happy People

…are so much more fun to be around than assholes. Effortless smiles and laughter. I had a blast yesterday talking with, and playing music for, some residents of the Heartland of Miamisburg ProMedica Nursing home. It was a small, but spirited group of listeners and I had them requesting songs and singing along (American PieContinue reading “Happy People”

Turn the Page

Move along. Nothing to see here. The international sanctions currently employed against Russia and Putin’s Folly by other countries don’t seem to be softening the little maniac’s resolve. There are more sanctions which are to be started at the end of this year, but just how long do they think Ukraine can stave off totalContinue reading “Turn the Page”

Tenacity

A great characteristic to possess. People possess it in varying degrees. You can have an extremely lazy and unmotivated mother who will turn into a veritable killing machine if you try to mess with one of her kids. Even though she is too damn lazy to properly care for them. I am trying to thinkContinue reading “Tenacity”
