I spend a lot of time writing about sports news, oddities in local and world news, films I!ve seen, books I've read, music I love, cats that keep my life interesting--whatever strikes my fancy. I love to share it with like-minded people out there.

Baseball & Active-Reactive Sports
Baseball is such an unusual sport. For those who have never played it or have never become a fan, it must be like (as my wife is fond of saying) watching paint dry. But for those who are avid fans or have ever played it, the game is a study in mental pres...

Trump vs Comey
I can ignore him and his escapades no longer. I just have to comment on the sad image our nation is now presenting to the rest of the world. I’m referring to the “He said-he said” confrontation between James Comey and our omni-tweeter president Donald Tru...

Oxygen & Tv Westerns
In one or two days I’ll get my order
from Inogen, a small in-home oxygen concentrator and a battery-operated

the debacle with his wife, the news not only of h...

Quality Television
I keep saying the same thing about our leisure time television viewing: There’s too much quality stuff and too little time to see it.  In the old days, we had the three major networks—ABC, NBC, and CBS.  Then, more and more networks got into the act.  And n...

Donald Trump, U A
He may not have said it, but if he had it would sound
something like this: “Our trip to Europe and the Middle-East last week was a
huge success, a really really great visit with our allies over there.  And I believe I won that knuckle-crusher

Airline Scuffles & Big Brother
Much has been made lately of all the scuffles on airlines, especially the one involving the bloody doctor being dragged off the plane because he refused to give up his seat to make room for an airlines employee. So many people, both passengers as well as f...
