Happy Holidays Mike and Della!

The Holiday season often puts me in contact with friends that I have long lost contact with.  The other day I saw a facebook post from Mike McGill, one of my oldest friends.  Back in the day (way back in the day) we swapped firefighting stories, went on search and rescue adventure training, and had […]

Wal-Mart collects for needy employees not their community… REALLY???

I know that the economic climate in our country is at an all time low, but what does it say when the largest retailer in our nation puts up collection bins not for the needy residents of their community. I find this to be the most shameful thing this company has ever done… instead of […]

Health Challenges To Be Met

Dear Friends, I have came to the realization today that I need to make changes for my health… I need to learn to eat better breakfasts… I need to rest more… I need to take better care of myself.  I need to do some serious work on getting better. Sooner or later we all come to […]

Chinese Five Spice Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie is almost unavoidable during the fall.  Not so bad, because it tastes great and really feels like the season. This fall is turning out quite nice just a little too warm some days and too cool others, we haven’t really had the crisp fall weather that is a hallmark of the season.  I […]

Saggy Baggy Pants, Whale Tails, and Muffin Tops

OK… here I go again on my soapbox about how people dress now.  It’s sad that no one seems to take pride in their appearance anymore. Have you all noticed so many guys with Saggy Baggy Pants?  Yesterday I gave a good friend a ride from work and I had a jaywalker cross the street […]

Birthday Was Wonderful! So was Father’s Day

I had a wonderful lunch at the Queen of Sheba with my Mother.  They are an African restaurant that serves authentic Ethiopian food. The food there is very healthy consisting of very lean meats and highly spiced and fragrant vegetables served on a plate that is covered with Injara bread that becomes your fork, if […]

Loving my new job… tomorrow is my Birthday… sigh

I am off weekends now… sooner or later this mess of a house will get cleaned.  Well maybe later than sooner.  I’ve been conquering the mountain of dirty laundry… trying to figure out what’s in fridge that died… and keep the three kitty monsters happy.   Anyhow… tomorrow is my Birthday.  Usually I don’t look […]

Game of Thrones Finale

The Game of Thrones finale tonight was AWESOME!  I can’t wait until season 3.  Now I’m FINALLY off to bed!

Storms… Storms and More Storms

Here we go again folks… more storms.  It seems like it never wants to let up… and it seems like it’s always on my off day. This time I did not have the damage that the last one brought. My garbage can stayed put and I did not have to go hunt it down. We […]
