What’s So Bad about Being Alone?

By |December 1, 2022|Categories: Aging, Companionship, death, Health, Loneliness, Memory|Tags: , , , , |

Don’t be lonely too long or you might not have long to be lonely. Only the lonely know the way I feel tonight…— Roy Orbison Are you lonesome tonight? — Elvis Presley All by myself. I wanna be all by myself.— Eric Carmen (covered by Celine Dion) Synonyms for loneliness and being lonesome include desolation, forlornness, reclusiveness and friendlessness. Just being alone doesn’t make all of us lonely or longing for companionship. Sometimes it can be quite pleasurable after a chaotic [...]

Beating Odds (and Oz) Despite a Strained Brain

By |November 15, 2022|Categories: Brain, Fairness, Health, Medicine, Mild Cognitive Impairment, Politics, Republicans, Strokes, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , |

Recovering from a stroke—an attack on the brain—is a tough way to run for the U.S. Senate. The most indelible story of the recent midterm election, other than what appears to be a rejection of election denial and most candidates running on that premise, might be called the Ballad of John Fetterman. It revolved around the stroke that befell him just four days before the May Primary from which he emerged with the Democratic nomination for one of the two U.S. [...]

Voting: It’s a Privilege to Do the Right Thing

By |November 7, 2022|Categories: Campaign Rhetoric, Constitution Rights, Elections, History, Politics, Uncategorized, Voting|Tags: , , , |

Despite jokes about dead people voting, election security is strong. It’s been quiet on the American front for many years now. Or so it seems. Even as I absorb the reality of observing three quarters of a century of a blessed life, I don’t think of myself as having lived through any great historical movements that dramatically changed the course of American life. Looking back, I guess when something is part of your past you don’t think of it as history. [...]

You Poop, Girl, and Freshen That Whiffy Butt!

By |October 26, 2022|Categories: Advertising, Black Americans, Commercials, Language, Women, Words|Tags: , , , |

This may be the year of redefining Democracy in these United States, notably the approaching midterm elections and continuing anger and unrest in a.  divided nation. Cracks about butts and bottom-half drafts invade prime-time TV ads.GoGraph.com Art This is not about that. I’m seeing something else breaking in the winds of change with the prime-time television advent of pooping women, smelly crotches and whiffy butts. It is being called, among other things, a shift in advertising to American women. Other descriptions [...]

“Surviving the Dark Side of American Justice”

By |September 28, 2022|Categories: Exoneration, Judges, Justice, Murder, Politics|Tags: , , , , |

Sometimes the scale is tipped by a heavy-handed grip. I recently reported on Facebook that a book I wrote is about to be published. I received my printed copy —the first off the press—at the beginning of this week, and its availability is scheduled to be announced in a week to ten days. I have been working on rounding up names of family and friends, along with their email and postal addresses, to whom I’ll ask the publisher to send announcements [...]

Rolling through Rock’s Twilight Years

By |September 14, 2022|Categories: Aging, Baby Boomers, Classic Rock, Humor, Lyrics, Old Age, Pop Culture|Tags: , , |

"I don't know about you, but the only rocking I'll be doing is in a chair!" When it comes to my favorite music, I live in the past with classic rock. Classic rock is struggling to remain relevant. In fact, CNN recently proclaimed that this summer “marks the twilight of classic rock.” Bob Dylan is 81. Paul McCartney is 80. Carlos Santana, one of the youngest rock icons at 74, was rendered unconscious by heat stroke at a July concert and [...]

Common Sense Origins: Brain, Heart or Gut?

By |August 29, 2022|Categories: Common Sense, Intelligence, Language, Learning, Social Issues, Social Media|Tags: , , , , |

Why are pea-brained horses dubbed as creatures with common sense while more intelligent species are known for the silliness of monkey business and monkeying around? We hear a lot about common sense whenever disagreements occur nowadays. When someone is cornered to defend some position he or she takes, the source of this knowledge is often credited to common sense. I’ve explored this topic before, because common sense, judging by what we as individuals choose to believe, is the one thing we [...]

Capping Some Classic Ad Slogans and Jingles

By |August 19, 2022|Categories: Advertising, Brand development, Commercials, Jingles, Marketing, Pop Culture, Radio, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , |

Camels were cool in the old days and reportedly the favorite bad habit of doctors who would walk a mile for one. As a member of the jingle generation, I have all kinds of stuff cluttering my mind. Blame it on TV commercials— the most pervasive purveyor of advertising slogans and jingles. I had a good time with this subject a few years back, and some bear repeating— along with a few others in this updated version. Many are still stuck [...]

Is It the Beginning of American Democracy’s End?

By |August 11, 2022|Categories: 2020, American History, Conspiracies, Constitution, Democracy, Fascism, Republicans, Voting|Tags: , , , , , , |

Are we looking the gift horse of American Democracy in the mouth? As much as I try to pretend that our Democracy (capital D intended) is not in jeopardy, the harder it is to ignore clear signs that the majority of the people in one of our two dominant political parties claim allegiance to a powerful cult of personality that won’t go away. Truth and facts no longer mean anything in what I feel is a dangerous time for the disunited [...]
