I had the opportunity on Dec.23,to play guitar and recorder songs with 30 four year olds at Perkins Elementary School in Western New York.We had a Christmas and Holiday sing-along and the looks on their faces made it so worth while.My ex-girlfriend,who's still a good friend of mine, put it all together weeks ago.I had gone to NYC to see the recorder and Baroque virtuoso Michala Petri at the Starr Theater in Lincoln Center,and was excitedly full of music apon my return.
My brother will not be free to have a Christmas tree. He will be spending the next 3 to 4 years in Prison scrubbing floors down on his knees. Unwanted child left behind by a working mother just trying to make ends meet, he slipped through the cracks of society. Some people think everything is already meant to happen..set up by a God they say. I don't believe that that is true...How could a good God be so cruel?
A poem for the prisoners who have slipped through the cracks of society,… Continue

I always wonder why more people don't dance in the streets. Then I figured it out..Its because we are all the judge and the jury..looking for exacts, looking to keep ourselves in safe boxes where we have almighty control of everything around us every second of every day.
Dancing is our truest form of abandon and self expression outside the box... besides sex that is..That's why we keep it to a minimum inside square rooms with our carefully planned out square lives.....So...Today I am… Continue
Happy and I made it. we are in Leesburg, VA. It seems kind of strange, but we started to see snow on the ground right at the NC/VA border. By the time we got to Richmond (65 miles) the snow was pretty deep. About a foot.
I'm not sure what causes it, but as soon as you get to the North side of Richmond, people go crazy. There were drivers doing 80 weaving in and out between the 18 wheelers. There was a wreck, or someone in a snowbank at just about every Exit/Entrance. Consequently,… Continue
I live on Michigan's Leelanau Peninsula, which also comprises almost all of Leelanau County. Thus, I'm equally correct if I say "I live on the Leelanau Peninsula", or if I say "I live in Leelanau County".
Its a beautiful place to live...we're surrounded by Lake Michigan on three sides (well, two sides actually, as the peninsula is a triangle). We have forests, we have lots of inland lakes, and we have great tall hills with panoramic views. We have picturesque little towns, both… Continue
Tonight Happy and I are in a motel near Rocky Mount, NC. We spent last night at Savannah, GA. We are headed to Leesburg, VA. I stored the RV near Melbourne, Fl. I'm driving the Jeep Liberty to VA. So far we have managed to stay South and East of the Storm, but tomorrow we will have to invade the snow area. We are close enough to the storm area that late this evening we started seeing trucks and cars going the opposite direction that still had lots of snow on them. I was in a service station and… Continue

Uncle Obama has gotten ahold of your credit card. And he's amassing charges on it that - you - not he - are liable for. You can call the fraud line, you can call the police, you can call any politician or government agency, and they will all tell you the same thing. Shut up and pay up.
Since misery loves company, you might feel better knowing that you're not the only one being extorted. Uncle Obama and his buddies have the credit and debit cards of every man woman and child in… Continue

Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.
I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.
That old woman called today. I guess it was just to be nice( she has always been so sweet and nice). She has been doing lots and entertaining and thinking pure thoughts. She has house guest, and had 10 people over for her perfect dinner party last night.(have I mentioned she has never worked a day outside the home and has the perfect husband). She asked me to meet her in New York the day after Christmas. She and her husband and going up tp visit with our Uncle and his wife. She has always stays… Continue
There was something in it that could have hurt my families feelings..I dearly love my family...They really are AOK with me. At the end of every day I take my own inventory, I check myself twice to see if I have been naughty or nice, and usually I have been both..so..I make amends wherever possible and I usually sleep good at night....I can be a bit forward and I am always thinking, but sometimes I write my thoughts down without really thinking.....So with that in mind about myself and a apology… Continue
