This may sound unusual coming from me, since anyone who even peripherally knows me is aware I can’t tolerate kids. However, they happen to serve as an ideal example for the topic of this post.
Picture this. Whatever your age, if you’ve passed it or that date is still approaching, you have a pretty good handle on what it’s…Continue
“The who? Bill, what in the hell is a milkman?”
If you’re under 50 years old, maybe even 55, that’s gotta be the first question to pop into your head as you read the title to this piece. If you knew me in my younger years you may even decide, Well, we all knew it was a possibility. Bill’s back to being a drunk again. You may…Continue

My friend Alex told me a story today. A very pleasant tale. Because he did that, I get to tell you the story with some nice add-ons. We have a win-win to enjoy together as a group.
Because of this “deathing thing” I’m doing, (cute, huh?; betcha never heard it said that way before), he’s concerned about me. Checks in frequently because he’s a…Continue

Apple computers weaved magic all over the world and its magician , Steve Jobs, became the apple of miilions of peoples' eyes on this planet. His contribution to mankind has been the greatest in recent times. In the 1970s, Jobs took leave from work (he used to work as a technician at video games manfacturer Atari) and spent seven months wandering across the length and breadth of India seeking spiritual enlightenment. After seven long months in India, Jobs returned to his native country,…Continue

What’s important is you WILL respect me.
I’ve used that statement many times over the years, and “the years” have become long. It’s fair to say there’s a small amount of overstatement in the title, but not that much. If you’re one of the people already connected to my world, in almost every case I already know you…Continue

… we move on to an existence where we find them too limiting to be useful, or even enjoyed, with our then greatly expanded scope of understanding and feeling.
My position of authority on the subject is uncertain. I can say I have a lot more experience in this area than most, although what I have isn’t much. That’s because…Continue

When it rains, it pours. Ever hear that one, did ya?
Well, yeah, if you’re old enough to read, you’ve heard it a number of times. In essence it means whenever there’s a glut of something, it usually becomes a seriously overstocked situation.
Just the other day I heard something on the radio related to a sports…Continue

… to ever happen to me is not the death I now have approaching. Not by any means.
There’ve been a large number of “serious things” that happened to me in my life, a number I’d never swell with self-inflicted miseries such as four marriages, or the six kids I took on, only one of whom was my biological child. It won’t include the multiple DUI…Continue

Being fair, I Googled the idea and it also happens to cats, but I’m honest enough to admit I don’t care what happens to cats. Any of ‘em. Based on their disdainful attitude, narcissistic nature, constant preening and self-centeredness, recent studies have shown cats are, in real life, furry little ex-wives. You already know my opinion on them, so I won’t belabor the…Continue

Does the world need another book about Mozart? Only if it is unique. Mozart’s Last Aria, a historical crime thriller about the mystery surrounding the great composer’s life, fits the bill.
Enter the opera hall as Matt Rees brings 18th century Vienna to life in his clever and entertaining expedition through the opera halls and streets Mozart frequented. Deception, passion and fear roam in the city where Freemasons furtively meet to usurp power from those who…Continue

In my younger days I probably would’ve bloodied your mouth for you in a hurry if you ever said it, but she was one. Yet, based upon the relationship most guys have with their Mom, (don’t even go there!), that’s not something most of us ever see. Or can accept.
I mean … c’mon, damn it … that’s my Mom!…Continue

In many ways, with reference to the song in the meaningful video at the bottom, all the homeless people are Eleanor Rigby. They put on a face, but not at the door, since they don’t have one. They put it on as they leave a collapsible tent, knowing it my be gone at the end of the day. Or as they crawl from a ditch. Come awake in a car they fear daily will soon stop running. Inch…Continue

How many roads must a man walk down it order to one day be a man? How many different people must he become in his life as he strives at all times to be better today than he was yesterday?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind, the answer is blowin’ in the wind.
How many seas must the white dove, our…Continue

Albeit I’ve been trying for almost 2½ years via this blog to let people know what it’s like being homeless, this idea has floated around in the back of my mind at least that long. Perhaps this will provide a more accurate picture.
Can you honestly imagine trying to budget for mouthwash? Have you ever been even close to that…Continue

Today, September 1st, 2011, was another crazy episode in my new sideline. Computer consulting. Who’d'a thunk it?
In my modest opinion, I’d've never in a million years thought it would happen. Perhaps it’s due to my exposure to Alex. The man is dog nuts with anything computer-related. Must be I kept comparing…Continue

It’s a synonym for “Plan B”.
To be fair with you and myself, I ought to call it “Plan Q” or even lower. I suppose it’s more a “security blanket”, along the lines of the Linus character in PEANUTS. For starters, to keep an idea like that one in mind is a sign of wavering faith on my part. It would also show I didn’t believe my own…Continue

In these days of e-mail and all things electronic, those words have taken on a different meaning than they had when I was a kid in school. The nuns who were my teachers always said, “You will learn two things. How to spell properly and how to write properly.”
To everyone’s surprise, I learned those things and a couple more.…Continue
