A Follow Up To Boys Will Be Boys!

A new commercial from Jim Beam proves once again how most guys think. Of any age!

In Census We Trust?

Ever wonder why people don't like to fill out the census form that comes around every 10 years? Even though people share more information now a days on line with Facebook and with people they have not met in real life?

In 1941, with the Japanese attack on Pearl harbor on U.S. Navy ships, there was a national hysteria and suspicion of all things Japanese. In California, which was thought of a first line of defense for the rest of the country, hundreds of thousands, of U.S. citizens of Japanese descent were swept up and put into internment camps for the duration of WWII. A sad chapter for this country, and one that will always be remembered with a heavy mixture of shame.

Boys will be Boys!

With Lauren Bacall at his side, one would figure Humphrey Bogart would not be distracted by the d├ęcolletage of another woman, unless, of course, that woman is Marylyn Monroe!

Finally, Is It, Cough, Time, To Stop Smoking?

Recycled Weekend
June 12, 2009

watching when little
on the big screen
larger than life
macho men
pretty women
a spark then a light
smoke from the lips
one likes to be
just like the heroes
want to be like him

cowboys on the range
ruggedly handsome
the wild west vision
horses and cattle
night time glow
almost perfect
want to be like him

puff on the pipe
by jove I've got it
the game is a foot
come watson
want to be like him

school years beckon
all grown up
james dean look
one hangs from the lip
be like your friends
want to be like him

Bogart black and white hat and raincoat
in the shadows
roll your own
tug on the ear
oh so rugged
want to be like him

people are dying
holes in throat
lungs are blackened
can't breathe anymore
gasping for air
all a lie
image was built
cartoon and macho
trick them all
hook the children
replace the dying
tough to look cool
when you lay so still
not to be like him

The Sky Is Not Falling!

Contrary to some opinion, Having a change in our medical coverage is not a scary thing, nor a reason to scream or yell. I predict that many people, who could not leave their current employment because of insurance regulations against pre existing conditions, will be moving on. Yea!!!

Man's Best Friend

Recycled weekend

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

lying asleep
at the ready
for play
for a scratch
favorite snack
always looking
Lab is he
always trust

no conditions
for love
smartest he knows
out the door
game of fetch
again and again
wagging of tail
his hero

pup no longer
getting older
graybeard now
moving slower
life would give
to the end

noble beast
not to judge
love in eyes

absent from room
not from heart
hug and kiss
family member
better then most
man's best friend

A Blogger on House M.D.?

Anyone that knows me, knows I love the show House M.D. Because of my wacky retail working hours, I don't always get to see the show in prime-time. I get to watch it on, but only after 8 days.

Anyway, in this episode, the patient happens to be a blogger! Talk about life imitating art imitating life.

It's free to watch and very convenient too. Click on the title for the link or go to

On The Cover Of The Rolling Stone!

We ended up watching an old video on VHS(yes,before DVD)last night, Rolling Stone presents Twenty Years of Rock & Roll. It was from 1987. It was narrated by several stars of the time, some which have passed on to rock and roll heaven. I felt like an old professor with a few question and answers to who was who and when was this during the show.

Once again, I am so happy to have been there from the beginning. Cut me and I bleed rock and roll! From the psychedelic 60's to the glam of the 80's. A lot of music, some groups a quick mention, some a minute or two playing. There was a lot and I might forget some, but here goes.

The Band

The Beatles

The Bee Gee's


Dave Bowie

James Brown

Jackson Browne

Buffalo Springfield

Joe Cocker

Elvis Costello

Country Joe & The Fish

Creedance Clearwater Revival

The Doors

The Eagles

Iggy Pop

Jimmi Hendrix

Elton John

Eric Clapton

Jeff Beck

Cyndi lauper

Led Zeppelin


Joni Mitchell

This weeks email

I received this recently

We were dressed and ready to go out for the Office Party.

We turned on a night light, turned the answering machine on, covered our pet parakeet and put the cat in the backyard. We phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi. The taxi arrived and we opened the front door to leave the house.

As we walked out the door, the cat we had put out in the yard, scoots back into the house. We didn't want the cat shut in the house because she always tries to eat the bird. My wife goes on out to the taxi, while I went back inside to get the cat. The cat runs upstairs, with me in hot pursuit.

Waiting in the cab, my wife doesn't want the driver to know that the house will be empty for the night. So, she explains to the taxi driver that I will be out soon, 'He's just going upstairs to say Goodbye to my mother.'

A few minutes later, I get into the cab. 'Sorry I took so long,' I said, as we drove away. 'That stupid bitch was hiding under the bed. I had to poke her ass with a coat hanger to get her to come out! She tried to take off, so I grabbed her by the neck. Then, I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked! I hauled her fat ass downstairs and threw her out into the back yard!'

The cab driver hit a parked car.

When The Earth Moved

Weekend Repeat
from 1-28-10

a day like
any other
preparing evening
meal for all
change quickly
first rattle
sense uneasiness
feeling spread
sense of doom

unable to stand
walls shaking
flying through air
goods from walls
run they screamed
outside now
knocked to ground
crawling to door
who made it out
not me

walls collapsed
ceiling soon followed
weight of the world
no feeling in legs
unable to breathe
crushed below
gasping last breath
how quickly it ends
no goodbyes
no hug
no kiss
no last words
no time to say
love you

walking down hallway
fancy place in town
best place to stay
columns in place
sandy soil
short cuts taken
building heaves
earth shakes
snap crackle
foundation buckle
like a pancake
floor on top
of floor
collapse as one
no time to scream

stagger into street
people crying
babies wander
blood washes roads
running running
after shock
again again
no end
why why
help me
all cry as one

no more
water gone
food gone
bodies waste
help us
no one cares
world unites
rally to help
docks gone
airport gone
roads gone
help on way

looking searching
pull back rubble
dog sniffs
cry is heard
baby brought out
cheer goes up
one is saved

pits are dug
deep and wide
bodies stacked
thousands now
pushed in covered
buried unknown

recovery begins
once again
slow and painful
how do you
take away
from people
who have

Alligators and Crocodiles Oh My!

We are lucky to live in Florida. We have many wonderful creatures living here.

It's kind of like the line from the Blues brothers, "We have both, Country and Western".

First there is the Alligator

and then the Crocodile

We assume that any waterway has an alligator. No jumping into the old swimming hole around here unless you want to end up as lunch!

Nescafe Commercial Adverts 1980"s

A series of commercials showing the continuing adventures of a flirtatious couple who wanted more to share then just instant coffee. Well done. As for the coffee, well.....

She still looks great today at 57! no photo shop to get rid of the husband, damn!
(I omitted this detail, the woman, Sharon Maughan, starred in the commercial along with Anthony Head.. She is pictured here with her husband.

and no, she hasn't had any work done to look that beautiful.

The Hardest Lesson Learned

Weekend Repeats
from the past

Friday, July 24, 2009

affairs of the heart
can not be wished
once upon a star

the planets must
align in
the right order

birds must sing
in the same key

bees making honey
never sweeter

sunrise most perfect
sunset brings hope
for more to come

walks by the ocean
two sets of prints
leaving their mark

thoughts to be shared
but never thought

searching the corners
universal emotion
sense of loss
sense of gain

joust at windmills
never give up
not imagined
will come calling

Say It ain't so YouTube!

Oh, I am so hoping this is not the beginning of the end. I went to YouTube to watch some videos and what started first was a bloody commercial! Another clip, another commercial, another clip and so on .....((((((screaming into the night)))))))

How do I look?

Someone told me to make a few wardrobe changes and to include some outfits with stripes. So I heeded the advice and bought some new clothes. So my question is "How do I look"?

Oh No! Where is the remote?

We panic when we can't find them.

They come in all shapes and sizes. Men can't live without them.

They give us the power. With them, we can speed through channel after channel to find the right show or movie. Heaven forbid we would have to get up to change the channel.
Women laugh at us when we reach for it and it is not there! Cushions get moved, papers tossed, and then a sigh of relief when it is found.

Honestly, there should be a national TV Remote Day, a paid holiday of course!

Mail Box No More?

This morning's paper has a front page story about the demise of the drop off mailbox and how some are being pulled from service and being hauled off to the scrap yard. There are reports of the end of Saturday mail delivery. This is of course being blamed on the continuing growing presence of the email. Most people will not miss their mail delivery, which by the way, is in its 235 year. However, the real scourge of the mail is delivery spam! Where is the delete button?

Was it the song, or the cover?

In the 70's, a group called Charlie burst onto the scene and quickly went away.I used to play drums back then, and I would wail away on them to my favorite songs. I loved the song Johnny Hold Back when it was played on the radio, but I wondered then as I do now, was it the song or the cover art? Either way, the song still sounds good to me today!
