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 […]


Counting my blessings for 2009

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya…….. I’ve noticed in the last 30 days or so how a handful of people have addressed me in a very soothing, friendly, caring tone about how I shouldn’t worry; the year 2010 is going to be much better ” than this past year was for me “. These reassurances come from […]


Memorable Christmas Presents…..Pt. 2

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. As I recollected some of the amusing and cool gifts I have gotten thru the years for Christmas last week, I actually had to cut it short. The post was getting a little long and I still had some thoughtful and memorable gifts to remember. But that’s the nice thing about […]


Here’s another truly great band for ya

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya…………. After everyone had such a great time seeing the Dick Ourada band last month, I wanted to turn you on to another extremely talented group of¬†musicians I know. Whereas the Dick Ourada band is a versatile group of guys that have been playing together since the early ’90s and have a […]


Some wacky stuff in the news lately

Dude, I’m tellin ya’…………… First off, if you didn’t make it out for the Dick Ourada band this past Saturday night, then you really missed out. The band did three long sets and an encore including a little Ozzy (Crazy Train), a Waylon Jennings tune (Luckenbach Texas), a Grateful Dead tune (One More Saturday Night), […]


Another enjoyable Thanksgiving

The show starts at 9pm up at the bar in the Rolling Lanes bowling alley on Joliet Road in Countryside. They […]


Just to keep you updated on things……

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. Figured it’s been a couple of weeks since I took a look back at some of the posts/events in the news and brought us all up to speed. The Blackhawks, the best sports team in Chicago {See 10/1/09 post: Puck drops at 11AM }¬† as I proclaimed them just before the […]


Updates……We Got Updates Here…..Get your ice-cold updates !!!

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. The Bears tried to save a little face yesterday against the hapless Cleveland Browns and accomplished that goal—-a little bit. I didn’t think there could be a worse team in football than the Detroit Lions after we played them. But Cleveland sucks pretty bad too. And despite the Bears easy victory, […]


A more pathetic display I’ve never seen…….

Dude, I’m tellin ya…………. First off, I want to send my deepest condolences out to the family of one of my very best friends. They lost a close member of their family this past weekend and obviously are in serious mourning. My thoughts are with all of you guys and I’m so sorry for your […]


The Dick Ourada Band ready to rock out again

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya……… I’m moving a little slow this morning after having gone to the Blackhawks game last night. The team is looking freakin’ good. Every time I watch a game these days, it seems like the other team doesn’t even put twenty shots on goal. Our defensive effort has been pretty good despite […]
