Think About It

`1Two million people as of about an hour ago, are without power in the wake of Hurricane Ian. I knew two Ian’s in my lifetime. One was a pussy, and the other was one of the meanest SOB’s you would ever run across. Best be left alone and not to be fucked with. Kind ofContinue reading “Think About It”

The Face of Pain

So I am up enjoying my morning coffee, when I turn on the telly to see Margaret Brennan interviewing The Man…Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky. My gut reaction? What a fantastic forest green dress Brennan is wearing. Then, as I watched the man describing what is happening in his country, and how, with the U.S. leadingContinue reading “The Face of Pain”

On and Off Again

It is raining on and off again in southern Ohio, which is why it stays so green here. August 28 is the traditional end of the summer, and here it is rigidly adhered to. Like the space vehicle that sits idle on the launching pad. I read where a majority of Democrats do not wantContinue reading “On and Off Again”

I Refuse to Live in Fear

It started, for me, with the Columbine High School massacre. Up until then, I don’t fully remember the previous mass school shootings, but I’m sure we had them. I wasn’t afraid to walk into a high school after that. The club shooting in Florida? For a musician and performing artist, I am not afraid toContinue reading “I Refuse to Live in Fear”

Once They Smell Blood…

I’m talking about closers. It is the reason that I never became a billionaire. I have chronicled my time holding an NASD stock dealer’s license and my up and down career in that arena. The closers were the heartless, callous, rude, pushy assholes who were driving around BMW’s and Porsches, while I drove to workContinue reading “Once They Smell Blood…”

Wow!

It’s not every day, or often enough, for that matter, that you see or hear something and it makes you say “wow!” out loud. In researching songs to add to my playlist, I came upon a video on YouTube posted in 2103. It featured Stevie Ray Vaughn (the King of West Texas blues) and JeffContinue reading “Wow!”

Carry On

The more things change, the more they stay the same… The Golden State Warriors won another NBA title, Manchester City bought the world’s best striker in Erling Harlen, and my Manchester United are doing absolutely nothing, except watch players fleeing due to mismanaged contracts. I think losing Jesse Lingard will return to bite them inContinue reading “Carry On”

Lesson Learned?

I just wrote only a few short days ago I was getting sick about all the gun violence that is plaguing this country. We are broken. We are sick. Now, I want to issue a qualifier that I have only watched one TV channel, the one that is most closely with Democrats, so I doContinue reading “Lesson Learned?”

Balls

Now, we’ll be going over several notable examples on this subject in this blog. Now there are baseballs, all other athletic sports’ balls, and then there are the balls it takes to stand in the face of certain death and tell a certain Russian warship commander exactly what he could do to himself as aContinue reading “Balls”

Hoosiers

Not only one of the greatest sports stories ever made into film, but here come the Hoosiers of War. Ukraine. Whatever happens from this point on and I can only unfortunately think it will be terrible for the Ukrainians, they have shown that you don’t fuck around with their country. Except in the movie, theContinue reading “Hoosiers”
