But right out of the clear blue she piped up, “Gary, lets set up the new his and hers iPhones we bought.” So, I did what was natural. I gathered myself; took a...Read More

Baseball Broadcasting – Backwards R US!

Listening to a baseball game on the radio has reached– to use medical terminology– the sphincter tightening stage.

Men appreciate a lush expanse of red fescue, perennial ryegrass, bluegrass, Bermuda grass, or even bent grass– if it’s on a...Read More

After 50 Matters!

Freedom. It’s underrated. I’m not talking about the freedom to hang out with Russian spies in the Oval Office or to write fake news tweets. I’m talking real stuff. These days, with security breaches, internet hacks, and White House leaks, most of us believe that our personal freedom is declining. A Gallup Poll found that the U.S. ranks #21 in the w...Read More
