How Much Is Too Much?

You hear about people overdosing on coke all the time, but apparently you can overdose on Coke as well!  A 30 year old mother of eight consumed over 2 gallons of the cola every day, and an autopsy has listed her Coke-a-Cola addiction as her cause of death! So, how much Coke is too much? […]

Walking Dead?

The Zombies are Coming? Well, apparently we had a zombie apocalypse in Marquette last night, and I missed it. Not surprising, since the announcement of the “dead” rising up and attacking the living came during The Bachelor on channel 10. If you were on Facebook last night, you probably were instantly bombarded with people sharing […]

Now I’ve Seen It All

My grandmother is rolling over in her grave, I’m sure. As someone who was born with a green thumb, she would spend hours in the garden tending plants, weeding the beds, and trimming flowers. She could look at a plant and in seconds, tell you not only what what it needed, but what it DIDN’T […]

Retirement Thoughts

Seems like a good day to ponder retirement. My mother is working her last day today, and starting tomorrow, will no longer have to brave the roads at 6am every day. Also, Donald Driver’s retirement became official, when he made the announcement during an interview on ESPN. That got us talking this morning around the […]

Men Just Can’t Catch a Break!

We men have all heard it. That voice coming from the other room saying, “Put that down and help me clean!” We then spend the next 5 hours of our Saturday being sent from one room to another with a rag, a bucket of cleaning stuff we have no idea how to use, a vacuum […]

January Showers, Redux.

I wake up this morning, and what do I find? My truck in a cocoon of ice! This might be a common occurrence in January in other parts of the country, but it is darn strange weather here in the U.P.! Be careful when you are out and about today. Walt has enough to talk […]

Something to Ponder for Valetine’s Day

Someone asked me, if money were no concern, and you could do anything you want, what would you do for your Valentine this year? Well, getting past the fact that I HAVE no Valentine, I sat and thought about it for a while. After what seemed like an eternity (because I was waiting for a […]
