don’t text and FLY

November3

my ingenious and creative friend (and, he could well be your hero) Johnny Walker (that’s his real name) sent me the picture below.

I’ll venture it was honoring, my committed fight against texting and driving. for more details around that read: texting and driving to death.

do it!

peace be to my Brothers and sisters.

a reminder that I LOVE YOU ALL: no Texting and Driving

July15

my fight against Texting and Driving went both viral and global (thank you Oprah) with my post: http://j.mp/efw5lc

now, “Marsh” adds a witty video to the fray: http://bit.ly/och1oh

“they”, those insidious, they, mind you, almost got me: http://j.mp/mlsMwP

but, I’ll not relent in my efforts to keep you all safe.

Have a great, and safe weekend! I’ll use my influence and super powers for naught but good.

peace be to my Bothers and Sisters.

glee full tragedy

July22

I have to admit I like the television show Glee.

But, can we agree, all of us, that this story represents a genuine, table-pounding, tragedy?:

Teenage Singer Charice Gets Botox for ‘Glee’ debut

“MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Filipino teenage singer Charice Pempengco says she prepared for her debut on the hit TV show “Glee” by getting Botox and an anti-aging procedure “to look fresh on camera.”

For Gods sakes!

I may come across as obnoxious (oh really? Again?)… But, if I could meet her Dad (assuming she has one), I’d like to knock him on his ass.

And, I refuse to ever watch Glee again, or download any of the great tunes they cover (dammit). And, I know Oprah is going to get wind of this. I’ll just pray my views have no negative on our joint efforts around: texting and driving to death.

Young girls have so many things that distract them from being confident, poised and unlimited in their potential. Perhaps you are thinking it’s easy to be judgmental and take pot-shots at problems whilst failing to offer solutions.

Not me!

So… A partial solution, for me, has been to show up daily in the lives of my daughters (and, their friends). I coach them in soccer. And, I’ve always felt “the beautiful game” was a terrific platform to demonstrate the value of teamwork, discipline and tradition.

I’m ready. All you Dad’s out there; let’s go.

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.
