more Food for THOUGHT


Food for thought…

green peasI eat little meat, as a condiment for my vegetables. peas are my favorite. I love peas. any kind of green peas (there is an astonishing variety). carrots, not so much.

were you aware that green vegetables absorb many negative things from the body? you certainly do now.

I don’t drink much. but, I can hang with anybody. however, Southern Comfort and Coke is preferred when prevailed upon. mind you, three is the limit. that’s the gentleman’s view.

and, I am typically up before dawn.

obviously I bathe daily – mostly because of my physical training regimen. and, I have a quirk, learned from my Grandad, where I bathe my feet in cold water each day.

I hear more and more often these days, that others too, are following this practice, call it a ritual. they have read this Blog.

my life has a pattern: heady achievement undercut by humbling reverse, happiness taxed by humiliation. for now the drumbeat of events have drowned out recrimination. somehow, some how this more often sets the stage for heady achievement.

I am a creature of change. that certainly abounds.

and, I want to be a good example of Darwin’s view.  good being a juxtapositional word,

peace to my Brothers and Sisters.

mortality and other such nonsense


I once, and only once, pondered my own mortality (I also once lived vicariously through myself. But this, is yet, another interesting story). But, that was much too limiting. So, I discarded such a barren and also bleak notion. How could the world endure such daunting misery plagued with the absence of a man such as myself?

Each and every day can represent it’s own Kobayashi Maru. Certainly we face the extreme moments when a situation looks nothing less than impossible and, even more so, desperate. But, we punch through, And, some how, almost regardless the result, the effort creates something – any thing, better.

It makes ever so much more sense to live the fruitful life. And, if we can’t live forever in the mortal flesh, then each day; all of them, should be designed to create naught but the most lasting, enduring and meaningful legacy.

Oh… And, coaching youth soccer (girls in particular) keeps all of this in perspective.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

A long goodbye


Today at 6pm life changed forever.

Am I mortal after all?

Am I the same person I was yesterday?

Will I be a good man tomorrow?

Now what?

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
