Here’s Johnny…………………………………..

After almost 19 months, I’m back. Why? Why was it so long? Because I got a job and we all know that the machinery of capitalism is oiled by the blood of its workers. And like you, I am again one of them. Bleeding heavily. But I have already re-claimed my American sense of complacency and […]

A Little From the Sports Pages

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. A couple of things have happened in the sports world with a local flavor. On Friday, the Chicago Bears signed free agent Pro Bowl defensive end Julius Peppers to a huge contract. They also signed running back Chester Taylor away from the Minnesota Vikings where he’s been a pretty decent back […]

Tribes Starting to Fracture on Survivor

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. This past Thursday’s episode of Survivor was pretty good. They had a good reward/immunity challenge on the surface, but in the end, it wasn’t much of a challenge. And the tribes are really starting to identify the people they don’t exactly like within their own ranks. The show started with JT offering […]

Just some observations in this crazy world

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya……….. Thought it was time to take a quick look at the world around me lately and tell you what I see. First off, the hard chargin’ band  West 34  is ready to jam out again this Saturday night at Rolling Lanes (bar) bowling alley in Countryside. If you missed them at […]

A few of the old man’s favorite things

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya……… I’ve been back from Nevada for a week now and it’s been almost two weeks since I lost my dad. I have to say that I’ve been totally floored by the number of friends that have reached out, called, sent notes and messages. A few years ago, I was basically underground […]

My Dirty Dozen Prophecies Revisited

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………… Well, it’s been another 7 or 8 weeks since I last reviewed my Dirty Dozen prophecies that I made on 11/5/09. I last checked on them 12/23/09 and a couple had already come true. And I know that another one came awfully close since then—but failed—so I thought perhaps I’d take […]

If you don’t have a brother, get yourself one

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. I’ve extolled the virtues of family on some of my posts here a few times. My dad is battling some ill health right now and the whole family’s thoughts are with him constantly. My mom is the rock of the family. The epitome of a classic mom. Marian Cunningham from Happy […]

What the hell is true wealth ?

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. A couple of things had me thinking lately about the measure of wealth among celebrities and other people. First there was the telethon for the victims of Haiti on Friday night and all the celebs that appeared and appealed for donations on behalf of the people hurting on the island nation. And […]

Time Flies When You’re Having Fun

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya……… It’s been kind of weird, but I have had so many reminders lately about how fast time flies by. This realization started for me a good 7 or 8 years ago on a certain level. I noticed it happening in my own life once I hit age 30. And as you […]

Confessions and Apologies

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. It seems like we’ve been saturated over the last several months with confessions and semi-believable apologies. The confessions only come out after the sinner is caught red-handed. They would have never come forward if they hadn’t been exposed and it’s obvious they can’t hide the sin anymore. So then we get the […]
