Gone to the Ducks!

Now I've had animals roam my backyard wall for many years but today's entry was a real surprise. We've seen possums, skunks, raccoons and more out there but yesterday a beautiful teal headed mallard flew in.

We watched him walk up and down the wall for quite a while from inside the house.  After…

Back to the Future - If only...

The 1950's.  Now that was an era.  I think today's America, the new America, was actually born in the '50s.  I was fortunate enough to be born in Burbank, CA on April 4, 1950 and I still remember much of the '50s.

We lived in North Hollywood, CA and grew up just like the kids in the movie "Sandlot" (1993). It was pick-up baseball games, football,…

Christmas: Past, Present & Future

When President Obama was pressed by Barbara Walters in a November 22nd interview about the failed roll-out of Obamacare and his legacy, he responded by saying "the good thing about when you're down is that usually you got nowhere to go but up."

His response begs the question, where do Americans go when they're down? What do we do? How do we…

Affordable Boat Act

The online Affordable Boat Exchange (ABE) website has been set up for all to register for a boat at their convenience. We have hired the most incompetent federal lobbing companies to setup the Affordable…

My Barbershop

After 45 years in business at the same location on 25th St. and Western Ave. in San Pedro, Henry at Harbor Village Barbers wondered where all his business had gone. Down to one chair with a second barber coming in a couple of days a week, the shop's business was in a downward spiral.

This is a traditional manly man's barbershop. There are no stylists to be found…

How the Mower Saved Detroit

Forget complex business plans, a political overhaul or massive infrastructure projects. Maybe what will help save the crumbling city of Detroit is a rotating set of mower blades.

Detroit has been on the decline, financially and population-wise, for many years for lots of reasons, not the least of which is the troubled auto industry. With numerous abandoned homes and vacant lots dotting the city, it might be difficult to really call Detroit a “city” anymore. Urban blight, maybe, but…

Home Values Likely to Decline When QE3 Ends

The End of the Earth as We Knew It

With the sky literally falling in Russia last week the conspiracy theorists are at it again. The Russians think the meteor was some new weapons system being tested by the Americans and many nuts just think it's the beginning of the end of the earth.

While the Earth may not be dying anytime soon in the physical or…

Christopher Dorner - One Angry Man

Former LAPD officer and Navy reservist Christopher Dorner born June 4, 1979 in New York state has obviously reached his limit. What's telling about the series of attacks in Southern California over the past week that left three people dead is the back story which psychologists say may go all the way to his childhood.

On Sunday Feb. 3, Dorner allegedly shot and killed a…

Politics and Politicians - My Turn

I'm not a political person. I don't think like one or act like one. Maybe that's why I have such a hard time understanding the nature of the game. Be it family politics, corporate politics or government politics, I'm still baffled to this day by the need, of some, to lie, cheat, steal and orate their way to a better position in life.

But, I guess that's just human nature.

Where do…

Winners and Losers - America's Class System

The article below is reprinted from June 2008; nearly four years ago. Remember 2008? There was hope and change in the air, we elected 
Obama. Has anything changed? You bet it has! When I wrote this in 2008 I too had hope, hope for the have-nots. Unfortunately we've gone backwards since our last election. Will we make the same mistake again?
