I use my blog for “keyboard therapy” as I like to call it. Started out mostly airing my pet peeves of life on planet earth but have written on some serious topics as well, mostly in defense of Mother Nature who I believe is on the verge of revolting against the human inhabitants of her planet.

Every once-in-a-while, I get an email or a comment about a typo or grammatical mistake I’ve made. Some of these are on purpose, some of these are words that I have found particularly useful, some of them are to see if folks are paying attention, and some of these are homonyms that I just prefer to use instead of the proper spelling.

The Hardest Thing A Parent Has To Do

My mother always said the hardest thing a parent had to do was bury their own child. Unfortunately, a few hours ago we found out that Allie’s sorority sister and roommate from senior year at Syracuse passed away from an apparent overdose. So sad to find out that a life was taken so

Telemarketing Daze

Earlier today I got a call from some company selling solar panels, or at least that’s what I think this guy was selling because his Indian or Pakistani or whatever half-way-around-the-world accent he had was so thick, I could barely make out the words he was saying. When are telemarketing

AN AMERICAN IN PARIS
BROADWAY SHOW REVUE

Major disclaimers:
1) I am not a Broadway Show critic by any stretch of the imagination.

LOTR In Concert Review

I’ve always been a firm believer that there are folks with real talent, and those that wish or think they had real talent…but don’t, so they become critics instead. Sort of like those that can, do; those that can’t, teach; those that can’t teach, teach gym. I try to shy away from the gym thing because one

It’s The Law….Or Is It?

Almost every day I step out of my house and break the law. I admit it…almost every day I’m a law breaking citizen, and I’m pretty sure I’m not alone. As a matter of fact, I’m pretty almost everyone breaks at least one law every day. There are probably thousands of laws out there that are broken by

Getting High On Religious Freedom

You had to know this was coming or at least you had to hope this was coming, just for the potential chaos. Personally, I thought it was going to be bunch of Rastafarians trying to pull this off but it looks like someone beat them to it. Indiana’s Freedom of Religion Act has given rise to a new church – The First Church of Cannabis, Inc.

Religiou$ Freedom Daze

There’s some serious shit going down in Indiana the past week or so. Let’s see if we can’t boil this down to what it really is, and I’m pretty sure no one really knows that this really is but this is just one possibility of what it really is (or is not).

“Hey kid rock and roll,
Rock on…oooh my soul.”

So goes the song Rock On by David Essex in a Victoria’s Secret commercial that is currently on air. I’m sure the folks at Victoria’s Secret want you concentrating on the model, her voluptuous cleavage and the bra holding those things up. They are

I HAVE A CONFESSION TO MAKE

Did you ever think back to a moment in your life that you wish you could have been watching yourself as that moment occurred? To see what you looked like and how people were reacting to whatever it is you were doing? Well, I’m sure I’ve got quite a few of those but there’s one I would really like to share.
