The Cat that Outfoxed Christmas

Posted on 21 December 2011

Veterinarians state that cats possess IQs similar to that of a human six-year-old child.  But vets lie.  From long association with two Applehead Siamese kitties, I can tell you that a human’s IQ, at any age, is miniscule compared to that of domestic felines.  I’d learned this before the second Christmas that Gremlin — named […]

Time is Money

Posted on 14 December 2011

How often have you heard and dismissed the phrase “time is money” as an old cliché?  But, if you really give it thought, it makes a lot of sense.  If you hire a person to, for example, rake and weed your lawn, the cost includes that person’s labor as well as the supplies that he […]

That Geographically Clueless SOB, Columbus

Posted on 09 October 2011

As the famous rhyme goes, “In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue.”  Indeed he did, ‘though the rhyme doesn’t mention the little fact that Columbus was waaaaaaaaaaay off course.  Intending to discover a shorter trade route to India, for its prized spices and silks, he pitched his scheme to the Queen of Spain.  Immediately, pesos […]

Moammar, We Hardly Knew You!

Posted on 22 August 2011

As Moammar Khadafy (alternately spelled Gadhafi or Gaddafi) exits the world stage, fashionistas everywhere are no doubt mourning his loss.  Known for his cutting edge use of color, bling, and especially hats as fashion accessories, Khadafy was always outfitted to make a statement (although, the exact meaning of that statement was not always readily apparent). […]

E-Trade Baby Loses Shirt in Market!

Posted on 05 August 2011

  Yesterday’s market sell-off caught many investors off guard. Among the most high profile of those with substantial losses yesterday was the E-Trade Baby.    I sincerely hope this will not end his career in television commercials.

The Deep End of the Pool

Posted on 28 July 2011

At the tail end of July, as the temperature creeps toward the 100-degree mark here in New Jersey, and the A/C system in my office continues to taunt me and the other residents of this building, temptation rears its cool little head.  I’m thinking of purchasing a pool, but I’m stalling … probably because of […]

Everlasting Life

Posted on 14 July 2011

Once again, I find myself sitting on my canopied deck, which I have nicknamed Shangri-La.  Here I am, conversing with a replica of Saint Francis (okay, so it’s a one-way conversation).  I was telling Saint Francis  about God’s infinite wisdom, vis a vis the promise that we mortals will achieve everlasting life in the Kingdom […]

In the Year 2054

Posted on 30 June 2011

Among all of the music world’s one-hit wonders, Zager & Evans, the rock-pop duo formed by Denny Zager and Rick Evans in the early 60’s, is the first to pop into my mind.  Their hit recording, In the Year 2525, topped the Billboard charts in the U.S. for six weeks in 1969, a period during […]

J-Day: May 21, 2011

Posted on 06 May 2011

In spite of all the hoopla about a government shutdown, the need to balance the budget, Presidential birth certificates, and who shot Osama Bin Ladin, both the media and the White House have been eerily silent about J-Day. The only hint I have seen of this prophesied event of the Second Coming of Jesus, to […]

They Say It’s Your Birthday

Posted on 04 May 2011

Being born is a natural occurrence; the miracle of birth is but a matter of biology.  However, the time and place of one’s birth is sometimes of enormous  consequence. Candidates for our nation’s highest office, President of the United States, are required to be natural born citizens; that is, born either within the borders of […]
