Observations
  Sunday morning coffee thinking about things with my Joe’s Stone Crab mug.  Even though Joe’s is closed for the season, a guy can still fantasize about a table for four with Donald Jr., Robert Bentley and Babe Parilli, enjoying mayo-laden cole slaw, an order of Selects, hash browns and key lime pie. Russian dressing...

It’s Sunday morning, the coffee’s hot in the very trendy-for-the-fortnight Wimbledon mug, and after a four week blog hiatus some stuff is rattlin’ around in my head:   How many times a day do you think Joe Biden kicks himself? Do you think Kellyanne really believes her own spiel? How about Spicey? Yeah, I’m a...

  England swings like a pendulum do……. When songwriter Roger Miller first penned that back in ’65, a month or two after I could get it on my bar mitzvah playlist, he undoubtedly was referring to groovy Carnaby Street and not Parliament, where Prime Minister Harold Wilson had the House of Lords and Commons under...

Where does time go? One minute you enter the world on a rainy 1952 Tuesday afternoon in the Bronx and the next you are turning 65 on a sunny Saturday in Birmingham, Alabama. One minute you’ve never touched a dog in your life and some sixty-five years later YOUR dog (and best pal) is selected...

  “I’ll take Boxing for one hundred, Alex.” What North American city currently holds the title as the heavyweight boxing capital of the world? “That’s easy Alex. What is ‘Las Vegas, Nevada’!” Bzzzzzzzzzz. Oh, I’m so sorry. The correct answer is Birmingham, Alabama. Yep, the Birmingham, Alabama of segregation, then forced integration. The Birmingham, Alabama,...

The bad news is it’ll set you back about two million bucks. The good news though:  it comes with a 90 day parts and labor warranty. Yes, if you happen to be in the market for a MRI machine, take a look at the newest GE. It’s a marvel, unless of course, you happen to...

I really didn’t give a flying flip about who won the Super Bowl but now that it’s a week later, I’m still not sure I can make heads nor tails about how it ended. To me, it just isn’t right no matter the sport, that after regulation play ends both sides don’t have an equal...

What’s going on here? Today is the day I was always in my full glory. Absolute on the rocks with a splash of tonic; a dry cabernet; chips; pigs-in-blankets; a cheese spread; chicken tenders; nicely carved potato skins and about twenty bets– it was like going to a bar-mitzvah reception.
