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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

I’ll Give Ya A Hero

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya……… As I see a couple of the biggest back-patting pageants on full display lately, it reminds me of how much we over-glorify those that don’t deserve it. People who have no business being celebrated in the overblown manner in which these shows do it. They are not deities. A good deal […]

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 do we really know ?

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. As you watch the endless parade of doomsday shows that they air on the History Channel, some of them really get you thinking that we could be in trouble. And others just seem pretty dismissable. At least compared to the ones that sprinkle a little science in ‘em. Seems like just […]
