Moles, urine and cemeteries

Moles: In recent weeks, I have whined (rather unmanly like) about their existence on/in the property I pay taxes for . . . if they want to reside on said parcel, they ought to share the tax burden. Without rehashing by moleophobic tendencies, last week I wrote (in part): Every Oct. 23, from 6:02 a.m. […]

Of moles and men

It’s a sad and melancholy tale. A story of a man clinging to a dream with sweaty, dirt-stained fingers. Some surmise, sadly, his steadfastness to this dream is simpleminded folly. But I ask, what is wrong with a man wanting to live his life in a garden of his own creation? Why shouldn’t he reap […]

Jeff Foxworthy’s view of Michigan

Jeff Foxworthy’s view of Michigan I’ve seen Jeff Foxworthy on stage, in movies and on tv with three other stand-uppers. I’ve even read his book ‘You Might Be A Redneck, If.? He doesn’t call it that, but he has some You Might Be A Michigander, If’s. If you consider it a sport to gather your […]

Get a load of this!

Sometimes you get e-mail that makes you blush. And, while I am not talking about those XXX rated e-mails you think I’m talking about. No, naked women aside, once in a while a reader sends me something that is really, uhm, embarrassing. W-a-a-y back in March I received an e-mail from a Lake Orion High […]

Now that spring sprang . . .

Ah, spring time. The birds of a feather are flocking together, happily singing and swooning and looking for suitable mates. The daffodils and tulips have popped their heads out of the earth. Their colors vibrant and cheerful. I’ve been buzzed by bumblebees and surrounded by a cloud of pesky gnats. But, know what? It don’t […]

Oh lucky day, the Taxman cometh

We all know (because we are all legal Americans) that it is our right — dare I say our solemn duty — to moan, groan and grumble about taxes. Since those exciting days of yesteryear when we tore off the tyrannical shackles of an oppressive government (read taxation without representation) we don’t like giving up […]

Don on international current events

Some folks have a low tolerance for Buick-driving blue heads (for those not in the know, blue heads refer to those whose hair is a bluish-tinted gray). And, there are still others who get red-faced by the antics of pampered, postpubescent pukes who give little and expect all. Where you are on Don’s highly scientific […]

Speak softly and carry a big stick

Did you know Hillary Clinton, while still only a Rodham and a college coed, clandestinely met with Cuban president Fidel Castro at a club in Havana to plot the slow, but sure socialist take over of America? And, did you know it was there she first learned of a smart, but gullible country boy, turned […]

Let’s give it up for earwax

In the past I have discussed the logistics of feet sweating something like 91 quarts of sweat a year. I have delved into the mysterious differences between men and women. I have even had the courage to explore what happens to a penny after it is swallowed. I have provided a veritable font of wisdom […]

Hey, I’m just like Oprah!

In 1986, the world’s population was around 4.932 billion. Twenty years later, it has ballooned. There are now between 6 billion and 6.6 billion of us bipedal humanoids traversing the earth. This, despite that fact that in 1986 the Soviet Union’s nuclear power plant in Cherynobl sprung a leak. Twenty years. The more things change, […]
