Thank you America for coming to your senses--Now BUY MY BOOK!!!

Some of you may recall last Thursday, November 16, I was vying to become a best Selling Author on Amazon.com As I watched my book begin to move, I also noticed that OJ Simpson was ALREADY on the Top Sellers List with his "IF I DID IT" book. The book wasn't even PUBLISHED yet. Amazon was busy racking up on the pre-sale orders and they must've made quite a bit of money that day because OJ's book went all the way to the #20 spot at one point. Now unfortunately, they will have to refund alot of money because the Publisher has pulled OJ's book off the market. (What do you want to bet it will show up somewhere else--like a foreign country?)

I kept thinking to myself, "What in the world is wrong with the American public in wanting to purchase the book written by a man they were so convinced committed those two murders? Why would they want to help him gain financially? He reportedly go paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for this "theory." That just didn't make any sense to me.

But then I came to this realization:

1) American book buyers love a good murder mystery so the next time I'm having a hot flash, I'll go ballistic on the person nearest to me and blame it on the rage of a "heated moment" and then I'll write all bout it!

2) There are 38 million women going thru some form of menopause so how hard could it be to get a million---or even 5,000 of those women to go to their computers and purchase a copy of MY book? Or maybe they were all experiencing one of the symptomsAT THE SAME TIME---it's called FORGETFULNESS.

3) I was targeting the WRONG GROUP. I should've been going after baby boomer men. After all, they're the ones who have to put up with all of the crap those menopausal women dish out!

I guess I'll know better next time................................

Remember, my book is still out there: Whatever! A Baby Boomer's Journey Into Middle Age

Donald Trump Has Brought Out the Worst in America

This isn't meant to be another one of those bash Donald Trump blog posts.  This is, instead, a commentary on the negativity his campaign has sparked.  

Racists have come out of the woodwork like roaches in the dark.  For the most part, these supporters would be classified as poor whites, angry because they can't advance with little or no education and the majority of them would also be identified as angry white males.  They have taken off their hoods, jumped on his bandwagon, taken off their hoods and are leading the "make America great" campaign.  They have gotten behind a candidate who spews some of the nastiest comments and behaved in such a manner that has to embarrass any decent, conscientious, law-abiding white person in America.  

People like 78-year-old man John Franklin McGraw of North Carolina have felt free to assault non Trump supporters at presidential candidate's rallies.  "The victim deserved it.  The next time we see him we might have to kill h…

Thank You Lebron James for Fulfilling My Bucket Wish List

You can't grow up in Northeastern Ohio and not be a sports fan.  As a cheerleader in middle and high schools, I came to appreciate and UNDERSTAND the game of football and basketball.  

I remember Marion Motley from the OLD Cleveland (Bulldogs) Browns coming over our house to socialize with my parents.  (He and my mother went to high school together).  I remember  Brian Sipe and the "Kardiac Kids" who always had me on the edge of my seat when they were playing.  I remember how proud I was when my high school classmate Phil Hubbard made his presence known on the Cleveland Cavaliers, along with Brad Daugherty, Ron Harper and Mark Price (the Cavalier's three-point king).

But in all of those years, we never won a championship or even came close.  My saddest memory is the 1987 AFC Championship Game between the Browns and Broncos on January 17, 1988 at Mile High Stadium. With 1:12 left in the game, Browns running back Earnest Byner fumbled on the Broncos 1 yard line while try…

Millennials Want Their Own Day

In case you haven't heard the news, there's a online petition encouraging the man they call the President of the U.S. to establish a National Millennials Day.

Self-proclaimed millennial leaders James Goodnow and Ryan Avery want to establish June 19 as a day for Generation Y to dispel the FAKE NEWS being spread about them.  They say they simply want to show those of us who have labeled them as "entitled" selfish" lazy" "narcissistic" (and other choice adjectives) that they can be important contributors to society.  Their "vision is to make National Millennials Day a day of service--a day when they reach out and help others in their communities.

 According to their website, millennialsday.org, organizers say "With National Millennials Day, we want to turn the stereotypes inside--out.  To show that we're more GENERATION WE than Generation ME. To transform ideals into actions.  To inspire hope for the future.  To celebrate the most open…
