Stroh’s With Steven and Joe, A Beach Boy Trying to Steal my Girl, Plastered Kansans, and Getting Out Alive

First off, I’m the new kid here at The Store. Chopper invited me in, which could be the biggest mistake of his life. Come to think of it, knowing Chopper as I do that’s not likely. The mistake of inviting me here would be small potatoes compared to some of his historic screw-ups. Just kiddin’ Chop. Sort of.

Anyway, as some of you may know I maintained a couple of websites for a while, one a rock music site and the other a sports site. I ultimately became bored as I’m prone to do and let them die a slow and painful death. Still, Chopper liked some of my stuff and had me over to the General Store. So here I am. Below Continue reading Stroh’s With Steven and Joe, A Beach Boy Trying to Steal my Girl, Plastered Kansans, and Getting Out Alive

Wheeling Heritage Bluesfest, Day Three, 2011

The final day of the 2011 Heritage Bluesfest was threatened by rain but by the time the major acts were due to appear the rain clouds had passed, the cooling breeze picked up and the thermometer dropped a few notches.

The day’s performers of note included a group called Southern Hospitality, Kenny Neal, and the star of stars in the world of blues, Buddy Guy.

Turns out, Southern Hospitality was a brand new incarnation of Continue reading Wheeling Heritage Bluesfest, Day Three, 2011

Random Thought, 8/27/11

GOP presidential candidate, Jon Huntsman, is considered by many to be a RINO (Republican in name only). He’s being attacked by the most vocal in his party as being too informed, too reasonable, and too trusting in science. To me he sounds like an educated person. Where did we reach the place where being all of this became a political liability?

Too Many Tomatoes?

Every year about this time we hear in rural America are overwhelmed with fresh tomatoes, zucchini, and summer squash. About everyone who planted these veggies in the spring now have far more than they can use and are begging others to take them off their hands.

Sally Turner Kennedy has a suggested and tried recipe on her blog, North Coast Muse, that makes use of some of these abundant and often FREE delights.

Maybe Not Warfare But Certainly Disparity

Frequently when discussing the distribution of wealth in America a conservative will employ the phrase, “class warfare.” They argue that liberals and the liberal media are trying to drive a wedge between the haves and have-nots that will somehow lead to a forced redistribution of wealth at the hands of government.

I don’t think anyone is advocating real “class warfare” but, there Continue reading Maybe Not Warfare But Certainly Disparity

Kinky is Kinky for Perry

Several years ago, before Don Imus got his tit caught in a public relations wringer and was canned from MSNBC, I was a devout fan of his morning program. It was just edgy enough to sate my irreverent sense of humor and bring forth a few laugh out loud moments most mornings.

Through Imus I was introduced to several people I’ve come to greatly admire and enjoy. That list includes Delbert McClinton, Continue reading Kinky is Kinky for Perry

A Few Hours on Pittsburgh’s Strip

There may have been a time when every American city had a place like The Strip in Pittsburgh. Cincinnati still has Findlay Market, Columbus has North Market, Charleston, SC its City Market, and New Orleans’s French Market is still going strong.

These are areas of a city where vendors of all sizes and flavors seem to assemble to participate in Continue reading A Few Hours on Pittsburgh’s Strip

Past History – Present Reality

Trivia fact: did you know that most presidents were lawyers? (27 out of 44)

Of the 10 presidents I have seen since high school, five were Republican, five were Democrats (who seemed to a better job).

When I was in high school, Democrat John F. Kennedy was president. Kennedy was born in Massachusetts, of Irish descent, a Harvard graduate, a Navy veteran, and the first Roman Catholic president. Continue reading Past History – Present Reality
