TV Ads

I am watching a television ad and it is for a vacuum that claims to clean AND pick up invisible dust. Shite, pure and simple. This is a door-to-door salesman’s dream. He will no longer have to soil the carpet to prove anything (not soil the carpet himself, no). One of the tricks in thatContinue reading “TV Ads”

Panic on the Titanic

I just got finished watching James Cameron’s Titanic for about the 100th time. It never gets old and I find the storyline as captivating as any. But why was there so much panic on the Titanic? I understand concern and worry, but there was no need to panic on the luxury liner. The trio ofContinue reading “Panic on the Titanic”

I Was Scammed

Who done me wrong? That fat Gregory the Groundhog or Chucky the Woodchuck as Karen calls it, is nowhere to be seen. After reporting his existence on the weekend, his presence and the danger he represented to my two Cocker Spaniels prompted me to call a Wildlife Rescue organization to remove and relocate the pudgyContinue reading “I Was Scammed”

Back for Good

What a trip. It started out on July 18th in the west valley of Phoenix, Arizona and culminated on September 14th. We are now new citizens of a little town in southern Ohio called Miamisburg. A golf course less than a mile down the road. The slow moving Miami River (Greater or Little Miami toContinue reading “Back for Good”

Wasted Energy

How much energy do we waste in the course of a day? I only ask because I am still hearing of people without power in the wake of Hurricane Ida. Hundreds of thousands of people. And how fucked up is it that people died from running their generators without ventilation? I know I waste aContinue reading “Wasted Energy”

Did Hell Freeze Over?

I know I have been a little groggy with medications, but what did I miss? Ronaldo was benched. Messi was traded. Now I am not an expert, but you know that silly little thing won’t stop me from chiming in. In a year when trade rumors and gossip are filled with the biggest names inContinue reading “Did Hell Freeze Over?”

Forrest Was Right

I suppose it is from all the time I spent in the pursuit of my own education combined with the time I spent helping other students attain their educational goals, that I have such a low tolerance for stupid people. Not included in my disdain are pygmies, people dwelling in the outskirts of Siberia, orContinue reading “Forrest Was Right”

Respect!

You know, I was watching a rerun episode of Hell’s Kitchen starring Chef Gordon Ramsay and I couldn’t help but chuckle. I consider this a comedy, not a reality show. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a basher. He is legit and you don’t earn umpteen million Michelin stars and become one of theContinue reading “Respect!”

Swimsuits

I did it again. I got stoned and posted the wrong blog yesterday with a song that I play, so here is another one from The New Riders. You are wearing your original swimsuit as you are reading this blog. That’s right. No suit. Au natural. Your first opportunity to swim is sometimes by necessity,Continue reading “Swimsuits”
