I’m Pissed Off at Philip Seymour Hoffman (and you should be too).

I'm Pissed Off at Philip Seymour Hoffman (and you should be too).
Hearing about the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, over and over again on the radio as I drove to Las Vegas from Palm Springs Sunday night, I had the same reaction a lot of people did. I was shocked and saddened that such a huge talent was gone at such a young age. But I ...

So This is My Theory on Coffee Comments

So This is My Theory on Coffee
Here it is. My theory is God invented coffee because he loves us. You see, he originally planned it so that we could sleep in as long as we want. Also part of the original plan was we would never need to be as alert and on it as we are when we drink amazing ...

More Free Coffee at Starbucks or My Encounter With The Cutest Kids in the World
So, I posted on my Facebook page a few months ago how I was in the drive through at the Boca Park Starbucks when someone ahead of me bought my coffee. It was very cool and unexpected. And although it actually ended up costing me $4 more dollars extra because bought the order of the ...

OK Two Days After the JKF Assassination Anniversary, Is It Safe Yet?

OK Two Days After the JKF Assassination Anniversary, Is It Safe Yet?
  So…it’s two days after the 50-year anniversary of the JFK assassination and now it’s safe to watch television news again. No more discussion of conspiracy theories, no more “where were you when it happened” recollections, no more tributes to Camelot. Thank God. I have never shared the endless fascination about Kennedy and his short ...

And here was the plan: “Yah,” I thought. “I’ll get a cheap–like under $700–used motorcycle ...

If I Were a Demigod

If I Were a Demigod
Ok, so I have this ongoing daydream, fantasy, idiotic idea that what if I were a demigod with almost omnipotent powers. I say almost because I don’t want to be standing there, after I’m dead, before the REAL God, trying to explain why I thought I might fill his shoes. Instead, let’s say for a ...

Down A New Road

Down A New Road
So, I’m fairly certain (even without checking the stats) that nobody is reading this blog. I haven’t really updated it in several months. Personal issues have taken priority. Also, I’ve been struggling with what to post. I mean, I love reporting stories here. But I can’t always get out to meet and interview people. And also, friends of ...

What’s Better Than Getting On the Cheer Team You Wanted? Getting on Two Cheer Teams

Author’s Note: I’ve decided to try writing my cheer posts here and then linking to RecessLV since they have a function on their blog that allows this. Wish me luck. Well my daughter did it. After  some stress and a very short break in between last cheer season and this one, she went to tryouts ...
