It’s Christmas. What are you getting your loved ones? How much are you spending? What is the gift you are most excited to give? What gift are you sure is going to get the reaction you are looking for? Have you even started shopping? Are you already done? It’s all about the gifts.
It’s happened to you….most likely. You ended up on the wrong side of a terrible situation. This can take place in many ways but I’d like to focus on one in specific today. Betrayal.
Well, I suppose it should say, "What I'm Consuming" but then again you are what you eat so I suppose it IS consuming me. Anyhow, I'd like to lighten the cultural conversation a bit by listing/describing what I'm watching/listening to/even eating. Watching Blacklist -...
"THEY DIDN'T COME OUT FOR THE ANTHEM!?!?!!! I'm done with the Steelers! I'm burning my Steelers gear. I'm turning in my season tickets." This is a very typical response to what took place this past Sunday. All across the country people were affected by the actions...

This picture popped up on my Facebook memories today. It is one of my most favorite pictures of Trey. If you look into his eyes you see an entire story. He has the eyes of a wise old man, seeing more than 3 year old could/should ever fathom. No hair, body ravaged...read more
Can we stop saying "fake news" and just go with the fact that it's all "biased news?" I've been watching Survivor again, it's really good...although producer manipulated. I've always watched Amazing Race...great show ALWAYS. A trick of those in control is to...read more
In my hometown of Penn Hills we had another devastating tragedy recently. I say another because we've been through a lot in the past few years. Yes, there were some before my son Trey died...I suppose I wasn't as tuned in. Officer Crawshaw's tragic death comes to...read more
