Honor Your Father

June 21, 2015
Father’s Day
On this the day that we set aside to honor our fathers, every son and daughter needs to reach out to the man he/she calls Father and say “I Love You.  Thank you for being my dad.”  Because believe it or not, being a father, you know—the guy that woke you up in the morning, played ball with you, saw to it that you did your homework every night, grounded you when you broke the rules, stood up with you or walked by your side at your wedding, cried with you when you were in pain, went to work to earn money to support your family, and did a zillion other things that got you to where you are today—being that guy is a choice.  Just so you know, not every child gets that guy for a father.  That's why it is important to be thankful that you did. 

I know, it isn't always easy to say what's in your heart, so I'll go first.  
Dad, you are an amazing man, and I am proud to be your child.   Everything I know about respect, honor and honesty I learned by watchi…

Summer is Movie Season

June 15, 2015

Summer is upon us,
and for movie aficionados summer is movie season, and there is a whole slew of  new movies coming out over the next few months.

  A few of the coming attractions are sequels to popular movies—Pirates of the Caribbean 5, the Avengers: The Age of Ultron, and Jurassic World.  But the movie that has this blogger foaming at the mouth is the Superman/Batman movie (The official title is Batman vs. Superman: The Dawn of Justice.).  It may not make it to the screen during the summer of 2015, the last report has it coming out in spring of 2016, and that’s a shame.

Perhaps you think that this blog should concentrate on the movies that will be in the theater this summer,  after all the title is Sumer Is Movie Season.  But the sequels all promise to be more of the same.  That doesn't mean they aren't worth seeing, just not worthing blogging about, in this blogger's humble opinion.

But the prequel to the League of Justice (you know that what it is, right?) i…

The Whimsical Nature of Fame and Fortune

June 8, 2015

Last week this blogger wrote about Rameses II, one of the most well-known pharaohs in history even though his fame is mostly hype.  And we know the whole world read that blog, right?  Coincidently, on Saturday, another pharaoh came into the spotlight--American Pharaoh.  With his win at the Belmont Stakes he became the 12th horse in history to win the Triple Crown. An awesome feat, make no mistake, but will he, like Thutmose III, fade into obscurity?  Will winning the Triple Crown make him as popular as Seabiscuit who wasn’t a Triple Crown winner?  Probably not.  That’s the whimsical nature of fame and fortune.  If Hollywood loves you, you’re in. 
Moving on, you may not be aware of it, but today is National Best Friend Day.  Yep, that’s right—Best Friend Day.  Not that you should need a special day to honor the person who shares everything with you, but there it is.  So, what are you waiting for?  Take your best friend to lunch.  Of course, if you are taking your best friend…
