Now That I’m 40, How ‘Bout A Bucket List ?

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. So as I announced Wednesday, yesterday was my 40th birthday. I made it. Sometimes there was some question as to whether that would happen. But over the last four or five years, I increased the chances quite a bit by settling into a more sedentary lifestyle. That certainly helped. So where am […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


The Dirty Dozen Prophecies…….An Update

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya……….. Back on November 5, 2009 I posted a dozen predictions/prophecies about the next 14 months in the world. Because things have been just as wacko in the last 6 weeks as it ever is, I thought it would be fun to see how many I have come close to in just these 6 […]


I don’t mean to ‘diss these Bulls

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. It really just dawned on me last night that so far this season, I really hadn’t talked about the Chicago Bulls at all. I did make a prediction about them in my Dirty Dozen prophecies. I said they will be 43-39 at the very best this year. They are actually more […]


A tribute to a good man, a friend

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya…….. Usually I would espouse on the last episode of Survivor that aired on Thursday night, but I wanted to celebrate someone special that deserves mentioning. On Friday afternoon, I got together with some of the boys from the fantasy baseball league that I play in. We had some beers and made several toasts. […]


The Dirty Dozen

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. I had to pat myself on the back last night after Mariano Rivera recorded the last out for the Yankees for them to win the World Series. Did I call this one pretty good or what? In earlier posts, I predicted the Yankees win it in 6. They did. I predicted […]
