We Shall Not Forget

We Shall Not Forget

This morning the United States of America marked the seventh anniversary of the 9-11 attack on our country, our people, and our freedom. It’s been a few years since I touched on this, but I felt compelled today to reiterate that the perpetrators of this barbarous act against everything good we stand for were cowardly, [...]

July 4th Weekend Photos from Olean, Rock City Park, and the Finger Lakes

July 4th Weekend Photos from Olean, Rock City Park, and the Finger Lakes

We spent the Fourth of July out at my folks’ in Olean, NY. I got some delicious homemade German Chocolate Cake for my birthday, and we enjoyed fireworks from about a mile away. I experimented with the Canon G9 by snapping some fireworks at full zoom while the camera was “attached” to a folding chair [...]

They Destroyed My Reputation Says Hooker (!?)

They Destroyed My Reputation Says Hooker (!?)

According to a story today, New York’s darling-est whore, Ashley Alexandra Dupré, is suing Joe Francis, the maker of “Girls Gone Wild” (GGW). If you don’t remember, I blogged about Ashley Dupré in March when she took down Eliot Spitzer… in the political sense. Now, that GGW guy Joe Francis is scum for sure… but [...]

Eliot Spitzer Goes Bye-bye

Eliot Spitzer Goes Bye-bye

Eliot Spitzer resigned his post as Governor of New York State in the wake allegations surrounding his involvement in a prostitution ring. [wikipedia - may be graphic] [AP] This scandal has really rocked New York politics, and living in Albany it’s all we’ve heard on the news this week. Here’s the short version: Spitzer serves [...]

Freedom and Obesity

Freedom and Obesity

So I was at the grocery store in the frozen food aisle picking up some vegetables. I catch a glimpse of this grossly obese man down the aisle a ways, with ridiculously over-sized sweats hugging his mammoth torso. He was over 400 pounds for sure. He was holding the the door open (pet peeve of [...]

Fatigue

Fatigue

I’ve got mind fatigue. There is so much I could have blogged about over the last few weeks… and I haven’t blogged about ANY of it. It comes to a point where there is so much irrationality being peddled as “compassion” or “equity” or “tolerance” that I sicken. Being smart and having common sense are [...]

Rain, Electricity and What-to-do

Rain, Electricity and What-to-do

This morning I went to work with my umbrella. The walk from my car to the main gate was a torrential downpour… and the rain was coming in sideways. My umbrella was about as useful as a fishing boat in the desert. I was soaked… my bag was soaked… my electronic toys were soaked (but [...]

Frank Reich – Mr. Comeback

Frank Reich – Mr. Comeback

This weekend I got to hear Frank Reich preach an inspirational sermon at one of the good local churches in my area, Grace Fellowship Church. For those who don’t follow football (please don’t identify yourselves as I’m not schooled in counseling) Frank Reich is a former quarterback for the Buffalo Bills and known best for [...]

Extreme Makeover finale was in my town!

Extreme Makeover finale was in my town!

Those local to me here in New York’s Capital District already know this (it’s been all over our news)… but tonight’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition 2-hour season finale episode on ABC took place just a few miles from my house here in upstate New York. The “actual” event happened a couple months ago, but the [...]

Trip to the Mall

Trip to the Mall

So I go to the mall. Our mall is a big mall… and is in the center of New York’s Capital Region. It used to be quite a weekend attraction for teenagers with nothing to do with their life, until mall officials mercifully put a restriction on un-chaperoned youth under 18 after 4pm on weekends. [...]
