Why vote for a businessman?

The pitch we hear a lot this time of year is that so-and-so candidate offers their qualifications, “a businessman.” Oh really? That same businessman that doesn’t put any soap in the windshield washer stations at the gas pumps anymore? The same business man that turns the soap on the car wash down so...

Open heart surgery follow up

My last post dealt with the prospect of a five-year-old facing open heart surgery. I’m pleased to report he is doing fine. So fine in fact, that four days after the operation he was up at his grandma’s getting in trouble for running around too much. His parents still have to be ever watchful but...

Open heart surgery at five years old

Born with a hole in his heart, my step grand nephew is facing open heart surgery Friday morning. I don’t think open heart is run of the mill, not just yet anyway. The family is quietly hopeful the doctors will be skillful in their work. If positive thoughts and prayers carry any weight, he will be... Sign in to see full entry.

Are we being pumped?

Gas prices, either you love them or hate them. That makes about as much sense as the headline on msnbc.com, “Why you’re getting a break at the gas pump this summer.” One thing most of us can’t understand is why the national average price of gas is always less than it is at our local outlets. So why... Sign in to see full entry.

Be careful what you wish for.

A long time ago, when I first started writing on Blogit, I used to wonder who these people with the top blogs were. After many years I saw my blogs begin to make their way into that box. “How neat it would be” I thought to myself, “if mine were to be on top of the list.” Now, I see it has finally...

Head scratching headline

“Father of 30, by 11 women, wants child support help from the state.” So proclaims a headline on msnbc.com.msn.com/news. It seems a Tennessee man just can’t help himself when it comes to the act of procreation. Annoyingly, he can’t seem to get the hang of being proactive when it comes to getting a...

Writing for no reason...

Is not what I want to do. It seems the past few days have slipped by in a whirl and I have been living life rather than writing about it. Along the way, a few observations have crossed my mind. The job search is not going well. Employers tell me the same story, business is flat, they don’t need help... Sign in to see full entry.

Another Sunday

Yet another Sunday sits squarely on my chest, glaring down and wondering, “aren’t you going to get anything done today?” Well, sure, I managed to sleep in clear till 8:30. Check that off the list. Then I made coffee, read the funnies, well a few of them, I’m saving the rest for later. Next I tackled... Sign in to see full entry.

What cost education?

With so many jobs today demanding a college degree, who can afford not to get one? More correctly, who can afford to get one? Getting a loan for college is a necessary evil, since where would a high-school senior come up with that kind of money fresh out of school? Pushing fries doesn’t pay that...

Blind ambition

Winning at all costs seems to be the political game played these days. Both parties trump up their positions, seemingly forgetting that they are supposed to represent us, not the other way around. Recently I got yet another survey from a major political party. Suffice it to say they are probably... Sign in to see full entry.
