Today is a special day at the Soapbox. It’s my birthday! It is also my wedding anniversary! A couple of years ago, I wrote about the telltale signs that you may be an Old Fart on your birthday. Here are some more: –You can remember when Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, and Mick Jagger looked like […]

Let’s talk about not sex (sorry, dirty old geezers) but rather space. I just read an article about movies dealing with the Final Frontier. While I enjoy watching the classics like the original Star Wars and the films aimed for the discriminating sci-fi intellectuals like 2001: A Space Odyssey, I am a connoisseur of those […]

February is coming to an end. As Joe E. Brown said in Some Like It Hot, “Wow-wee!” Now I can look forward to: –The NCAA Final Four. Perhaps the greatest sports tournament because it is not too small like the NCAA football championship tournament or interminably too long like the Stanley Cup. It will be […]

Even though February is my least favorite and even though the weather is typical February weather–i.e., cold and snowy, I am in a giddy mood. It is Super Bowl Sunday. Actually, I am not giddy because my favorite team is in the Super Bowl. I am not a fan of the Kansas City Chiefs or […]

If you are interested in reading about Super Tuesday, coronavirus, March Madness, the British royals, Daylight Savings Time, or the Masked Singer, please turn to somewhere else on the ‘Net. Instead, I am going to write about something I usually don’t cover in this blog–no, not hot sex or hot chicken recipes. Instead, I am […]

Not Bowled Over Super Bowl LIV

Sis-Boom-Bah! It’s Super Bowl Sunday. Even though I enjoy watching the pigskin sport, I am not a Super Bowl fanatic. Unlike Dagwood Bumstead from the funny papers, I don’t buy enough food to feed armies from a couple dozen postage stamp-sized countries. Although the games have been better in recent years than the snooze fests […]

The new year has come. I didn’t make any New Years resolutions except one–I will try to make An Ordinary Joe’s Soapbox the best blog in the galaxy. Even though I know blogging has become rather passé, I still enjoy getting on my little soapbox and opining on issues that interest me. And I hope […]

It’s that special time of the year! Not only is it the last post of the year, it’s time to hand out the annual Joeys! I created the Joeys in 2011 to present awards in categories not normally seen in the “best of” lists in newspapers and magazines. There are no monetary compensation, medals, or […]

This is a continuation of last week’s post in which I list some of things I am not thankful during the Thanksgiving season. Leftovers. For about a week after T-Day, I will be eating such delicacies as turkey tetrazzini, chili con turkey, turkey casseroles, turkey pizza, and hot fudge turkey sundaes. Even though I like […]

Thanksgiving is only a week and a half away. Rather than recounting the history of the first Thanksgiving or writing one of those “we have a lot to be thankful” posts, I am going to describe a few things I am not thankful for during the turkey holiday: Black Friday. A pseudo-holiday celebrating perhaps the […]
