Life Is Good

Since I posted my last blog entry I have reevaluated a few things in my life. The last entry was very negative and maybe a bit disturbing. Well, things really were not as bad as they seemed at the time. I have found that if you take a step back and sleep on it, the […]

Saturday sucked

I don’t know what it is, a personality flaw, just the way it is… or what? Seem like no one was around at all to talk to. Yes, my parents are around the house but can’t really relate or find anything to talk about. Well… we did talk about how to bring my girl Maria […]


I am asking everyone to say some prayers for my friends in the Philippines who suffered a 6.9 earthquake yesterday at about 10 p.m. our time. My girl Maria lives about 40 miles south of the earthquake area. I called her cell phone just 15 minutes after the earthquake and she said the pictures were […]

The ‘Manny’ Event

I am not usually a big follower of boxing except when it comes to Manny Pacquiao.  I have not actually watched an entire fight live but have followed two or three on a Yahoo text feed.  The reason I root for the “Pac-man” is twofold.  One, he is a great athlete that is not interested […]

The next day I was contacted to write an article for “Ventilator Assisted Living“. When I […]


Early June is always graduation time. I have been to many high school graduation ceremonies in my family for nephews and nieces. Sometimes they are painfully long… literally painful for me since I need to be moved occasionally and the longer I wait the more painful it gets. But the one I went to this […]


A big thanks to my buddy Scott Sands for his eloquent tribute to me on my 50th birthday. See:

A Big Blowout

As unbelievable as it seems to myself and others, I turned 50 years old on January 17, 2010.  The momentous event required a big celebration of course.  And it was GREAT, girls popping out of giant cakes, dancing girls clad in nothing but balloons!  I am telling you this party was incredible!  Then I woke […]

Christmas As Usual

It seems like Christmas came and went in a flash this year. Every year seems like it is speeding by faster than the last. But the few moments with friends and family make it worth riding along on this speeding train. We had a record attendance at our annual Christmas Eve party. I think maybe […]
