Think Twice Before Driving Through Illinois in 2017

Much of the this content came from an Illinois State Police release. I will quote it in this post so you can adjust your travel plans accordingly. This is _exactly_ why I and everybody else should be against states rights. If we as a nation want to encourage nationwide touring then the rules of the road need to be the same everywhere. I firmly believe several of these changes exist only to help balance the state’s budget. You can read more here. If you decide to speed through a work or school zone after the first of the year, you may end up in jail. Speeding 26 miles per hour or more, but less than 35 miles per hour, is now a Class B misdemeanor, and 35 miles per hour… Read more >

George Michael Left Us

You are going along on your Christmas Holiday then WHAM! George Michael dies. Don’t worry, I’m sure that tasteless joke is flooding the Internet. If you don’t get it you aren’t old enough. Are all “journalists” today 20-something script-kiddies? I went to several “news” sites and they present an extremely sanitized version of his life and accomplishments. They are all talking about his tamer hits and the boy band bravado of “Wake Me Up Before You Go-go.” Nobody is talking about the sh*t storm created when he released “I Want Your Sex.” In a world of 24/7 Internet porn this may seem well below the radar, but, this song came out before Bill Clinton and Al Gore had yet to commit the election year scam of “the Information Super Highway… Read more >

Snow Plog

I sat, not exactly dejected but feeling just a bit lonely. My youngest offspring danced from foot to foot. The bus door opened and without so much as a how-do-you-do, my novel disappeared in the big yellow cheese. At least the bus driver – my editor offered a wave as the impatient diesel chuffed smoke. Camelot Games disappeared into the publisher’s meatgrinder. No feather floated and no wonderful sound-score played. Had I raised the baby-book correctly? I could only hope because frankly my part is done. Not. Now the real work begins – Marketing. With acknowledgements to Sarah Green’s December 9th article and some HubSpot research, I’ll address a tired old soldier from the Cyber world – The Blog. It’s too soon to say we can market without this guy,… Read more >

Goodbye Zsa Zsa

There will be many posts and news articles over the next few days with laments for Zsa Zsa. While her antics may seem timid by today’s standards, she was groundbreaking. Actually, both her and her sister Eva were groundbreaking, I was just a bit young at the time. You twenty somethings won’t understand this, the word “gay” didn’t really exist in mainstream culture until some time in the mid to late 1970s. People noticed an oddity with Liberace but they worded it “just being theatrical.” Quite honestly, when I found this article about Merv Griffin I was shocked. I found it today trying to verify which Gabor sister was “his constant traveling companion.” That is how news media always phrased it. The press was _so_ polite back then. Like pretty… Read more >
