One of the many things men do that drive women insane, other than not listen when they are talking? Men don’t read instructions. And there is a simple reason for it. Men are visual. Show us p...

Career Change

Change is almost always difficult. Well for me at least. It’s leaving the familiar and moving into the unknown. I have learned more and taken more courses in the past 3 years of my life than a...


I know, I was one! I will not go into the long list of indiscretions, and there were many. Even today I can’t explain why I did the things I did. I am sure it has something to do with the deve...

Good Friday?

I have never understood why we call this particular Friday, Good. From the religious aspect, it is the day Christ was crucified. Not what I would call Good. And on a personal note, it was not ...

Men of a certain age

Oh yes. Once we reach a certain age, medically speaking, there are wonderful tests that await us. The one I remember most and liked the least, “drop your pants and bend over the table.” I swea...


All you Californians know about Proposition 65. The rest of us not so much, other than what we read on those warning labels. I mention them only because I see them on almost everything. I ...

Excessive bail?

The Eighth Amendment of the United States Constitution prohibits bail from being excessive. My question, what is excessive? Granted what may be excessive for one person may not be for another. ...

Life On Mars

The United States has spent billions to look for life on Mars. John Gray made a few million writing about the difference between men and women in his book, ” Men are from Mars Women are from Ven...


First off, let me state I am no more qualified to give marriage advice than I am to treat you for cancer. I can only speak from experience and somedays that may not be advisable. Someone once a...

Ban Assault Rifles

You can have my guns when you pry them from my cold, dead hands! Yes, the world has gone insane. When it is easier to just get a gun and kill your perceived problem! I have no problem with str...

Covid 1 year later

2020 was on for the record books. This time last year I was at home hunkered down like many others, waiting for Covid to get me or quickly pass. Neither happened! Not that I am complaining. I...

Generation E

I am a baby boomer, which means, I am really close to retirement. Had I planned better I would have already retired but alas at 21, 65 was a long way off and I had plenty of time. Flash forward...


There are some things that are better left alone. The problem is many times we don’t know it until after the fact. And then it’s too late. I have spoken to several folks over the years who...

Spring Has Sprung

It’s not quite the Spring Equinox but Spring weather has finally arrived, along with its cast of characters known in our parts as Thunderstorms and Tornadoes. Yes, a 1/4 inch snow can paralyze ...

Spring Forward

I know I am in the minority here, but I hate DST. It takes me a couple of weeks to adjust, and personally, I could care less if I have an extra hour of daylight. Of course, my philosophy is, Th...

Updates that Don't

I just love Windows 10. It is the perfect, user-friendly operation system around. And Donald Trump won the 2020 Election! This brings me to my point. Any update, regardless of what it is for,...

Own it.

Mistakes are bound to happen. What you do with them makes all the difference. I have finally reached that age that if I make a mistake, I admit it, own it, and learn from it. I read somewhere ...

An Apple A Day

If you were to Google that phrase you would find out that apples do indeed have many wonderful health benefits. Of course, as I have learned over the course of my years, what works for some doe...

Time of Death

I have always found it odd, that a person is not dead until a doctor pronounces them dead. I mean, what are you if they don’t find you for days? I know, missing, right? But I would still be ju...


Long before the cell phone, Twitter, and all the other social media rage, people had to learn to communicate. Nowadays, not so much. And it shows, especially in the medical field. You go to...

Dr. Seuss Offends?

Our society has lost its collective mind. Walt Disney never released “Song of The South” in the US. Now we add to the list Dr. Seuss. Oh, and let’s not forget the Christmas song, “Baby, it’s c...

Factory Reset

Technology can be a cruel mistress. She can be just a sweet as pie most days but then there are those days where she decides despite my best efforts, she just doesn’t want to play nice. The...

Golden Years

Whoever came up with the idea that 65+ was the Golden Years was either wealthy beyond measure or an idiot! I lean more toward the latter, but that may be because one leg is shorter than the othe...


Every generation believes their music was the best. For us baby boomers we know that to be false. Ours was the best. The Beatles, Rolling Stones, and the list goes on and on. (sorry to disappo...

To The Moon, Alice

I have never understood why it was so important to land on the moon. And now we not only want to go back, (Like did we leave something there of value?) we want to go to Mars? Surely we can put ...
