Once again, I am at a loss of words. This time, I am suffering from “May Writer’s Block”. Next to June, May is my favorite month of the year. The winter chill is over, and the oppressive heat of summer is still a couple of months away. Flowers are blooming in the neighborhood gardens. Talking […]

No Jeopardy! for Me

Ever heard of James Holzhauer? He is the quiz whiz who is crushing the competition on Jeopardy! Oddly, he is not a high tech wizard, a rocket scientist, a Harvard professor, or even a tycoon. Instead, he is a professional gambler, proving that the wise guys and gals you meet at the track or the […]

No Nobel for Me, and Some Random Thoughts

Drats–I won’t be going to Scandinavia this year. Recently, I read a story which stated the Nobel committee won’t be awarding a prize in literature in 2018. However, two prizes will be handed out next year. I know I will have a better chance winning the Powerball or visiting Jupiter than winning a Nobel prize. […]

An Ordinary Joe reaches a milestone–this is my 400 post! Yet I want to cry 400 tears because: –I spent a emperor’s ransom for car repairs. –I’m another year older but certainly not wiser. –My wife has been ill recently. –The United States is not in the World Cup. About the only cup the American […]

This is the 398th post of this blog. May I write at least another 398 more. So are you ready for some football–international football (aka soccer), that is. The World Cup is being held in Russia. Since the Americans are not participating, my interest in the Cup is far under par than my interest of […]

It’s a fad, fad, fad, fad world. Some fads become beloved institutions like Mickey Mouse, Beatles and Elvis music, WWE wrestling, surfing, and laptop computers. Other fads go and come back like 3-D movies, vinyl records, Quisp cereal, McRib sandwiches, Pac-Man, Captain America, Batman, Superman, Spiderman, and Wonder Woman. And then there are some fads […]

Since a lot is going on this mad, mad, mad, mad, mad world called Earth, I believe it’s time for a Blah/Yeah (formerly Boos/Yahoos) post. This is when I climb up my soapbox like a Roman emperor and express my disinterest or interest on some of the current events of the day. I know some […]

Oprah’s America vs. Roseanne’s America

Oh my Hollywood stars, I am going to write a post about Roseanne Barr. I never liked Roseanne’s brand of comedy. I thought the Roseanne show was crude, obnoxious, sophomoric, and vastly overrated. It couldn’t hold a laugh track to other great blue collar sitcoms like The Honeymooners, All in the Family, Sanford and Son, […]

B.C. Lorio via Foter.com / CC BY-NC-ND Labor Day weekend is here. Time for a little rest and relaxation before heading back to the daily grind next week. If I was in high school, I would probably be required to write an essay about what I like about Labor Day. Labor Day is great because: […]
