In a recent visit to the doctor (scheduled) I had to fill out a form to update/validate my information for 2019. Part of the questionnaire was this. I was quickly filling this out and after I checked White I started to feel a bit uncomfortable. Why is Ethnicity only Hispanic or Non-hispanic?   Why is Race only these four choices? The United States Census officially recognizes six racial categories: White or European American, Black or African American, American Indian and Al...

Luke Hagerty. A name you might hear a few times during the upcoming baseball season.    What's so special is the fact he is 37 years old and throwing 99...he is the ultimate comeback story for baseball.   The Cubs just signed him 17 years after they drafted him in the first round. A great story of perserverance, focus and luck. Here's the full background story from ESPN...great read (click here)   Before Luke the oldest guy to make a comeback was Jim Morris and he was 35. The...

My wife and I went to the movies last Saturday night. We saw A Star is Born which we both liked.     But that's not the real story....when we walked up to the ticket counter, I asked for two adults. And then we heard a shocking but true response from the young man behind the counter. "Senior Discount?"   We both looked at each other in shock and laughed. It was the first time we've been asked. Pam asked the ticket seller what age is the senior discount. He said "60" and we bo...

Here are some that are already diminishing at an alarming rate. Driver Postal Worker Dispatcher Telemarketer Travel Agent Farmer Cash...

Thought this may bring a smile to your face or at least a shake of the head   Nike is releasing a wild iteration of the Air Max 1 Golf...yes, grass sneakers. Nike may need to refocus it's creative team, or give them a huge bonus...I'm not sure.    Dubbed the Nike Air Max 1 Golf "Grass," this wild style features a deep green turf-like upper, with green laces resembling the fairway and rough areas of the course. It gives a whole new meaning of blending in and being one with th...

Every year one of my friends reviews his relationships and categorizes them creating a top ten list. He has a bunch of criteria, some of which is strange but one particular point got me thinking.   His top friends are those who can he be most authentic with. As he says, "...the people when I'm around I can be myself, say whatever pops into my head."   It struck me that he may treat some people very brutally, even those he loves. Although brutual honesty can be just what's nee...

This news might have you saying...Really !?!?   Police in Ohio said a couple broke into a home, washed their clothes, then showered and fixed themselves some coffee before robbing the place last Monday.   Luckily, a nearby family member of the homeowner confronted the couple with a gun and held them at gunpoint till the cops arrived.   Police said they found a computer, credit cards, car keys and jewelry from the home in the truck that belonged to the couple.   If, and when,...

A week ago I was surfing through the internet finding the list of things I needed to do to get my iPhone 7 working again. Apparently, without reason, my phone stopped connecting to the network. No calls in or out and texts only if I was connected to WiFi. It left me wondering how I ever survived without a mobile phone. After reaching out to Apple support, 10 reboots and various steps later I went to Verizon, as a last resort,  to replace the SIM card but no luck. I dropped...
