I've been thinking about the situation in Ferguson... It looks like there is a part of our populace with the belief that rioting and looting is the answer to a problem.
People are upset with the police, the grand jury, and things in general. So, they believe it is OK to… Read full post »
The last I heard, none of the bills have ever appeared in any bank involved with U.S. transactions. Eventually, U.S. money spent elsewhere in the world shows up in the U.S. There has not been any trace of the money, other than the muddy and rotting bundle found near the river… Read full post »
I like watching football, especially professional football.
However, there is one thing I do not like about it. That is "late hits" on a quarterback.
I believe that once the football has left the quarterback's hands, anyone on the opposing team must break off, or immediately stop, th… Read full post »
The beheading of someone, even as a court ordered execution, is repugnant, vile, cruel, and in most cases completely unjustified. I supposes that ISIS likes to behead perceived enemies, solely to strike fear into the masses.
Now, allegedly, ISIS leaders are threatening the Unites States g… Read full post »
Presently, there is discussion amongst professional baseball's really, really, "BIG WIGS" - about cutting the length of games.
I am all for that, but why stop at cutting the length of games?
How about some BARRACUDA BASEBALL? Shorten the game length to 6 innings, AND, CUT THE MLB SEAS… Read full post »
Regarding Adrian Peterson, there is one thing that folks are overlooking...
That is, Mr. Peterson is a 6 foot 1 inch, 228 pound BULLY.
Worse yet, Mr. Charles Barkley tried to defend Peterson by saying beatings are an acceptable part of Black family culture.
I am white. My father beat me… Read full post »
By now, everyone who reads a newspaper or looks at computer news sources, has seen the photo of the knife wielding Islamic terrorist threatening President Obama.
That guy must need the services of a chiropractor, due to the crick in his neck from having to constantly look over his shoulder. (He… Read full post »
An open letter to some professional football players.
Please use a cup or a jock strap.
NO ONE WANTS TO SEE THE OUTLINE OF YOUR JUNK. NO ONE.
There are other ways for you to advertise your status, or to let everyone know just how proud you are of… Read full post »
Here's an open letter for the well-meaning folks at MSN.
Almost every time I turn on my computer to look at the news, or to start to write or do research, BOING, there it is. Right there in the coveted upper right hand position of the MSN webpage, is the "meat market"… Read full post »
As I've been reading and seeing the news about the death of Michal Brown, I noticed something.
Some reports refer to him as a "boy of 18." Actually at the age of 18, as far as I know, he would be considered as an adult.
The main thing that I… Read full post »
48 years ago, my best friend died in Viet Nam.
Don R. Sain, class of 1961, was a year behind me at Los Gatos High School. When he joined to serve his country with the U.S. Army, (before there was a draft), he became a “Green Beret,” as part/… Read full post »
"What do you mean there are no cherry pies?"
I blurted that response to the comment from the drive thru speaker at McDonalds.
"We stopped selling cherry pies!" came the response.
That was several months ago.
I have been a customer and fan of McDonalds all of my adult life. I… Read full post »
The news today indicates that $7 million will be spent to install "suicide nets" on the Golden Gate Bridge.
This is a result of YEARS of thinking about how to prevent suicides, by people jumping off the bridge.
Apparently, even people who are afraid of heights have jumped off the… Read full post »
Jerry was sitting on the toilet, waiting for it to happen. As he was sitting there, he was thinking, had he heard six shots or nine?
In a crouched position, with his shoes on the toilet seat, no one on the other side of the latched door could tell that someone… Read full post »
We hear about trades almost every day. Usually sports related. A multi millionaire team owner and the team’s management, decide to trade a player in the hopes of improving the team in one way or another.
In the past few days, we have been learning about another trade, a POW trade.&n… Read full post »
In BIG type, as of today, “MLB IS BACK!” Of course, referring to Major League Baseball. At this point, it is OK to GROAN.
47 years ago, when I was a sleeper at a firehouse, Captain Willie would walk around with a small portable radio, (transistor radio), held to his righ… Read full post »
A week ago, at Oso, Washington, part of a mountainside gave way in an avalanche. The path of destruction destroyed about 49 homes, many outbuildings, many vehicles, and caused the deaths of people, their pets, and some farm animals.
In seconds, a quiet rural community was tra… Read full post »
Here is a gentle fire safety reminder, and some interesting information from the NFPA - National Fire Protection Association. Please take a moment to look at this potentially life saving information.
As a former firefighter, (about 13 years), I've been inside burning residentia… Read full post »
My parents moved to Saratoga, California in October 1955, about two weeks after the start of school. Previously, we lived in San Jose, CA, where I was a 7TH grade student at Luther Burbank Elementary School, on San Carlos Street, in the “Burbank” area of west San Jose. I/… Read full post »

Poobahs of the NFL - it is past the time for you to do something to discourage "LATE HITS" on quarterbacks.
As I channel hopped the games on TV today, September 29th, I saw many "late hits" on quarterbacks.
One in particular involved Titans quarterback, Jake Locker, who ended up having… Read full post »
Enough is enough. The talking heads of, you-name-the-media outlets, are droning on about the Washington, DC killer. Speculating about motive, about his past life, his experiences in the military, etc., etc. The information is repetitive, and for the most part uninteresting, and unimportan/… Read full post »

There is pain, and then there is real pain. I think everyone knows the difference. If someone has arthritis pain in both knees, both hips, both hands, and lower back pain, many doctors would be very quick and happy to prescribe a variety of pain medications.
Trouble is, if you take… Read full post »
