Below is a list of all my blog posts. I hope you enjoy them.
Did you know that the Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence himself, sent me an email asking for my name, address, and cell-phone number? Yes, all I have to do is send them this email address: email@example.com (Psst: This is just between you and me, okay?) See, he needs this information to make sure he sends my check for $10 million US dollars to the correct address! Isn’t that nice of him! I take back everything I have ever though about the man!
One of our great national pastimes has come under fire (pun intended): Grilling. Really? What are we supposed to do on Memorial Day? The 4th of July? Labor Day?
Turns out, it’s not so bleak as all that. Read on for details…
With everything that’s going on in the world these days, it’s important to remember that really good things happen every day, too.
Mosquitos have no right to life. Well, okay, they can live, as long as they steer waaaay of me.
I have this wonderful picture in my mind: Clinton goes to Patterson and says, “Jim! Jim, we gotta write this, ya gotta help me with it! Nothing classified, a course, cain’t do that. But just something to let people know there’s stuff they don’t know!”
This book is pure fiction (if it weren’t, Mr. Clinton would be under all kinds of arrest.), but what I think is true – and what is important – is that there are very often things that no one can be told, as a matter of national security. I’m sure there are things that even Congress doesn’t know, that maybe even the president’s inner circle doesn’t know. And the public certainly doesn’t.
If you follow me closely, you may recognize the names Brinn Colenda and Tom Callahan. One man is real, the other is his creation. Mr. Colenda is the author of two other books in the Callahan family saga, Cochabamba Conspiracy and Chita Quest. He has just released the third book in this eventual sextet, Homeland Burning. And it is at least as captivating as the other two.
When you have a fight or a disagreement with someone, before you do too much back and forth, I’m-right-no-I’m-right, etc., be very clear on what you are fighting about. Now, that may sounds stupid. Of course you know what you’re fighting about. Why else would you be fighting?
High blood pressure (HBP) is often called the Silent Killer because it has virtually no symptoms until/unless it gets to dangerous levels. About 1 in 3 adults in this country have it and, though there are no symptoms in the early and mid stages, the Heart Association says that over 80% of us with it are aware of it.
People don’t know how to fight. Have you noticed that? They don’t fight fair. I’m talking about in relationships. Like, if someone says, “You were out of line here,” and you say, “You’re right, I was, I’m sorry,” I don’t think that person should be able to pull that one out again.
