A Very Serious Look At “Assistance”

My father’s name was Jack. When I hear someone say “You don’t know Jack”, I think of him. This coming Saturday, HBO will air a film starring Al Pacino titled, “You Don’t Know Jack”. But it’s not about my dad, it’s the story of Dr. Jack Kervorkian and the end-of-life debate. Last week Anderson Cooper … Continue reading

It’s Always Nice To Be At The Top Of The Charts

After many years of a warm and cozy relationship, we’ve come to the point of irreconcilable differences. This may change down the road, but my long-standing subscription … Continue reading

That way we can make our own really strong morning coffee no matter where we are staying. At the end of our trip we … Continue reading

Yet Another (Pitiful) Reason To Blog

It came as a surprise to me that doing Art might have healing powers. When I shared this insight with Leslie I got the “you pitiful creature” look. And what else should I have expected from a full time artist? Dunno. Nevertheless, I feel compelled to spread it around. Most of the people who read … Continue reading
