I just read an article about Mrs. POTUS watching toddlers eat healthy lunches and doing the bunny hop with the kids. That must have been a sight to behold! Our First Lady’s “Let’s Move” child care checklist includes; one to two hours of physical activity daily, no screen time for children under 2 and only 30 minutes of screen time per week for the older children. In the same checklist it says no more than one to two hours of quality screen time per day overall. Mmm, okay, maybe she needs to…Continue

I attended my Uncle Mike’s funeral yesterday. He was the last of eight brothers and sisters on my mother’s side of the family, so it was more like saying good-bye to an entire generation than just one man. The eulogy was touching and the service comforting. The only time tears came to my eyes was when we were singing hymns - “Amazing Grace” and “What a Friend We Have in Jesus”. Music has an unexpected and powerful way of touching people.

The rally was great! There must have been over 30,000 in attendance at the beautiful multi-million dollar Scott Athletic Complex which is built on a reclaimed mountain top. There is also an airport, baseball fields, etc. on a several hundred acre level plateu made possible by the "evils" of strip mining. What a testimony to the greatness of what wealth can do for the betterment of unusable land. Have you ever been to the Hazzard area of eastern Kentucky? Once known as a wasteland of…Continue

Anyone familiar with the Shell Game knows that it’s been around for a very, very long time. And just like most games, there are winners and losers. But where the winner in Monopoly is usually the one who accumulates the most property through a combination of skill and luck in the roll of the dice (not unlike the real world), the winner (thimblerigger) of the Shell Game is he who finds the most suckers! That would be you and me!
The age-old con game is quite simple.…Continue
You may have seen or heard this outrageous story: A former US Marine was beaten and is in critical condition by police for simply protesting the injustice of America. OK, there's a back story here. First of all, although he isn't saying, there is a high probability that he was dishonorably discharged. He once ran a website about hating the Marines and about how he hated "their" image (hence the deduction that he was let go by them). Besides, even if he did serve honorably, in combat or…Continue

The very last word’s uttered by Alec Guinness’s character Colonel Nicholson in David Lean’s Bridge on the River Kwai, as he realizes in the last instant of his life…the greatest mistake of his life. What Have I done?
I sometimes wonder if David Lean, my absolute favorite Director of all time, had a very powerful looking-glass beyond the lens of the movie camera. When I think of the essence of his three greatest films, Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor…Continue
On September 17th, the same day as Constitution Day, the socialists revealed themselves to the American people. For the past 2 years, we've learned about the Progressive plan to "fundamentally transform the United States of America." Then in March 2011, the plan was revealed to America but due to the media's either ignorance or total involvement, they failed to alert the American people. A former SEIU official, Steven Lerner, revealed the socialist plan to take over this country. The plan he…Continue

I was able to watch a movie this past weekend about the man who brought us the light bulb because he also invented the movie camera! Edison the Man starring Spencer Tracy did in fact bring good things to light about a man who literally lived to bring good things to life! And I think it’s fair to say that life without Thomas Alva Edison would most likely have meant a life without Steve Jobs, iPod, iTunes, iPhone, and iPad! Imagine…
In fact, I’ll take it a step beyond…Continue
(Originally posted on my blog on July 1, 2009 - while doing some cleanup tonight, I realized how little certain things have changed - and that lack of change is killing our country - this is as pertinent today as it was then.)

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. – Ecclesiastes 3
Welcome to the 15th edition of our Sunday Morning Tune-up! I hope everyone’s windshields are beginning to clear a bit as a result of quieting the mind in meditation and practicing some of the other techniques we’ve discussed. There is a tremendous disturbance in the force, as Obi Wan Kenobi would have said. And if you ain’t feelin’ it,…Continue
Here's something I saw on Facebook, and felt it should be shared here too. So I looked
and found it on Youtube. …
Obama's war on energy is raising the cost of everything. Electricity, fuel and food should and could be negligible expenses in the family budget in our society, but we will have to elect the people to office who are not afraid to drill, dig and grow for that to…Continue

“I think President Obama has good intentions.” -Mitt Romney, Presidential Candidate…Republican Presidential Candidate!
In 1789 the interests of 3 million people were served by Washington, Franklin, Jefferson, Adams, Madison, Hamilton and scores of other bright stars.
Today we are 300 million…and Mitt Romney?? We are 300 million people whose interests are skewered and traded for favors by the…Continue
Sorry I haven't posted here in a while. I've been buried in various projects. Here's something from a couple friends of mine,, two award winning local Blues guys, Mary Riley, the WBS Best Slide Guitar Award winner and Chris Leighton,, the namesake of the annual WBS Best Blues Drummer Award, performing on his infamous "Trash Kit". Chris created this drum kit from various items that you can pick up at any local junk yard or recycling venue,, the bass drum is an old dryer,…Continue

Hey Big Dawgers! I hope all is well in culture war land. So I keep doing this big dance and going around and around, going back and forth between Ron Paul, Herman Cain, Michelle Bachman, Hell throw in Sarah Palin and Chris Christie and all of the Republican candidates for President. For those that don’t really know me I have always been a republican my entire life. Recently starting say in 2004 or so I started waking up and becoming much more libertarian and I really started educating…Continue
My father passed from this world on October 12, 2001; just about 8 months after being diagnosed with brain cancer. He was very much aware of the world around him until the day he died. As horrifically significant as 9/11 was, I don’t remember discussing it with him, other than the fact that they were to have flown out of Kennedy Airport that morning back to Florida. What I do remember and will never forget, is wondering what it must have been like for him after the Towers fell…knowing that…Continue
