REALLY?

Just saw an ad for something I could not believe. In this brave new world of cell phones and their uses, the hash tag (formerly the pound sign) has come to a new life. This has led to everything having a hash tag.   Now comes the stupidity of a...

Another beer gone.....

Pabst Blue Ribbon beer has announced it is selling out to a Russian buyer. The champagne of every redneck and drunken teenager is moving its base to Russia and it doesn't sadden me. A lot of companies, pabst being the third or fourth beer company to...

Whatever happened to social conscience?

A trip to any store is a great adventure to me. I people watch. I am also sometimes the offended. How you say? People engrossed in their telephone, not watching where they're going, and simply being rude as hell.    I was standing in line when...

It's instinct to protect leaves you free to drive...

Or so Infinity says. I did a piece on these "safe" cars a bit back. I questioned if all these improvements made for less attentive drivers. Well, the Infinity ad proves it.   The ad features a driver who is lost in thought, crossing lane lines,...

Yesterday, as I arrived at work, there was a line waiting at the apple store. Yup, a long line of wanna-be-iPhone-six owners. The phone has become the symbol of the "us" people, of the "us and them". I'm one of "them".   I refuse to buy an...

Ahhhhh, Ben, Ben, Ben.....

Okay....I'm going to risk pissing people off. Why? Because there is a trend now, and for a long time now, to write blogs about this sites shortcomings and the lack of Bens caretaking.    It's true. You can't do everything you used to be able to....

Happiness....the elusive quality of life that eludes many. Why is that? There are two approaches to daily living...   1. Live life measuring your life by what you DO NOT have but others around you do. This will almost certainly leave you feeling...

The "Pretty Woman" paradox...

It's found in almost every truthful man. Just like women who want to "fix" flawed men, so do men with women. Pretty Woman was more than a movie, it could actually be a study of men and the women society shun.   A man with money will make the...

In honor and pride, a mans dignity lies, and no measure more than their own life shall define a person. In that mortal moment between an act of valor and salvation lies the pain. Two towers falling, bodies and souls forever lost in conflagration and...

Other satanic restaurants....

Average versus Excellence

Average....the very word says dull, non-specific, unremarkable. To be called average for any measure means you've done nothing to set yourself apart.    At work, I am becoming quickly well known. I bust my back ensuring my job is done, and done...
