Well, rats. I hate when I flip-flop like I am gonna’.

Oh, since about what, Day One AE (After Election) I have yammered on about all the hubbub taking place in these here un-united states of America. Fake news, stupid un-presidential “tweets”, the unending squawking from anyone and everyone who may or may not have been hurt by said tweets and especially by those elitist Hollywood […]

Science, math — ok — thinking isn’t my strength

Science, math — ok — thinking isn’t my strength

I never gave much thought to the scientific study of how particular qualities or traits are transmitted from parents to offspring. Deep contemplation on this subject, like most in my realm of existence, doesn’t happen often. It’s okay. I know myself. I just kinda roll with the punches and see where I land. Since I […]

My honest assessement: Super Bowl Sunday was kinda’ good

My honest assessement: Super Bowl Sunday was kinda’ good

Wow. I feel bad. I have empathy. I feel the pain every Atlanta National League Football Falcons fan feels this Monday morning. Mere hours after the NFL’s most elite team, those pesky Tom Brady led, New England Patriots erased a 25-point deficit to win their fifth Super Bowl in seven tries, I can only feel […]

Says me, ‘In 2017, don’t be stupid (be nice).’

Says me, ‘In 2017, don’t be stupid (be nice).’

Yep, it’s official we’ve watched another ball drop, and I am not talking about the disappointing receiving efforts of your Detroit football Lions. I’m talking about that symbolic gizmo that mechanically, ever-so-slowly moves its way down a pole in New York every Dec. 31. Why folks say that “ball drops” is beyond me. It ain’t […]

See ya’ 2016 — it’s a wrap on an interesting year

See ya’ 2016 — it’s a wrap on an interesting year

Dang, I hate writing in advance of deadline. I had a column lined up to coincide with the Winter Solstice (Wednesday, Dec. 21, 2016 at 5:44 a.m.), and the days getting longer; I took a picture of the first mailed seed catalog in a snow pile; I was gonna’ be all “Cheer up, Buckaroo! Things […]
