I played Trivia again this past Wednesday (by the way, my team won again for the 3rd week in a row – yay!) and afterwards my daughter, Tara, asked me if I wanted to go to a small tavern very near her place for a last call because one of our very favorite people, Emily, … More Sometimes All of Us Just Need Some Compassion
Last week I played in a Trivia Contest with 2 people I had never met before: Aaron and Molly. They were both such great people and so much fun to chat with. One of the categories was “Adult Swim.” All of the five questions for that category were going to be about the different shows … More Lassifer: The Evil Collie From Hell
At the 2016 Rio Olympics a long standing tradition of giving small bouquets of flowers to the medal winners has been discontinued, and instead, the winners are given small 3-D sculptures of the official Rio Olympics logo. The Rio Olympics officials decided that since the traditional bouquets of cut flowers soon die, they would give … More The 2016 Rio Olympics Sculptures
I won’t be posting much while the Olympics are going on in Rio and I will have to take some time off after they are done to catch up on my sleep as well because I’m trying to watch as much as I can on TV as well as online. But my temporary sleep deprivation … More The 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro
This has been a horrible month for my wallet. My internet bill went up $20 a month, despite pleading phone calls to Charter’s customer service (wow, is that phrase a joke with those people!) and to that department’s supervisors that were in vain. Then somewhere shortly after the first of this month, I picked up … More Thank You, Joseph Grummer!!

After Melania Trump gave her speech last night at the Republican Party Convention in support of her husband, Donald Trump, the Internet blew up with charges that she (and whoever “helped” her write her speech) plagiarized Michelle Obama’s 2008 Democratic Party Convention speech. One of the best and funniest comment on this whole fiasco was … More Melania Trump’s Republican Party Convention Speech
When I was in high school in the early 1970’s, I purchased a P.O.W./M.I.A. bracelet (prisoner-of-war/missing-in-action) of an American serviceman in the Vietnam War. The information on my bracelet was “Capt. David Dingee” and the date “6-27-72” which was the date he either was made a prisoner or became missing. I later found out a … More My P.O.W. Bracelet
A long time ago my daughter, Tara, told me, “Mom, I love you, but you could trip over a dust bunny!” And I laughed and laughed because that was such a great and funny line but then I had to agree with her because that is the truth, unfortunately. I am an infamous klutz and … More My Latest Klutzy Moment

Bay City has been celebrating the three nights of fireworks, fun, and fabulous festivities for 54 years. (How’s that for alliteration!) But just like the weird … More Happy Birthday America!
