My Olympic cooking challenge

Okay, how about a short break from all the sturm und drang out there and dive back into a recurring subject of mine: cooking. The topic is not necessarily in honor of, but nicely coincidental to the ending of the Winter Olympics. So, in my view, this represents my Olympic cooking challenge. Just in case… Read more »

They’re coming to take me away

Ah, those goofy tunes from my youth! They provide me with so many wonderful blog post titles. I’m up and at ’em early this morning on a topical topic. That is, a level of misinformation or lack thereof that can be cleared up quickly. And it should make people worry less that “they’re coming to… Read more »

Believers gotta believe

There’s a lot of interesting news in the world today. Lots of it is right in our backyard (in this case, I speak both metaphorically and literally). As usual, opinions outweigh facts. That is the customary recipe for inaction. That’s because, believers gotta believe. I’ve already said my piece on the horrific shooting that occurred… Read more »

Kids are being killed. For crying out loud, DO something!

You’re damn right I’m angry. Kids are being killed. Get out of here with your second amendment blather. Kids are being killed. For crying out loud, do something!

Save me from great ideas

Once again, those magnificent creative gods at Facebook have come up with new ideas. Ideas no one asked for, but, by golly, great ideas nonetheless. Save me from great ideas. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve had a long-time feature running on my Facebook pages ever since the start of my Facebook “career”. This all began… Read more »

Don’t let outrage blind you

I know, I know. If you’re on the right, you’re all over the “secret society” FBI and its witch hunt against Donald Trump. And if you’re on the left, you’re incensed over the despotic decision to have a military “parade” for anything other than a victory at war. To both of you I say: don’t… Read more »

Mr. Egg meet Mr. Basket

If you’re like most people, you’ve gambled at some point in your life. Maybe it was in a casino. Could have been in the stock market. Perhaps it was that person you really wanted to ask out on a date. At some point, you’ve put it all out there. Maybe even, on occasion, too much…. Read more »
