Over the river and through the woods? Thanksgiving is Doomsday if you are a turkey, but its a very good day if you are people.  Thanksgiving, regardless of which version of the real story you adhere to, is a day for pumpkin pie, stuffing, weird  looking casseroles that you have to smile about when you...

The Immortal Chuck Berry: A Tribute.

I found about Chuck Berry’s passing totally by accident. Was offline decompressing and just happened to glance at the newspaper. Chuck dead? That has to be an oxymoron. Chuck Berry is immortal. His stamp is on every rock and roll or R&B song written since the mid-1950s. Forget about musicians being in his debt. Everyone...

Giants For Real?

Certainly looks like the NY Giants, aka Big Blue, are for real. They’re playing solid football. Shades of LT and Strahan, they’re playing great defense, and one can only hope they’ll get more offense. You can’t cover Beckham all 4 quarters. Wish them well.

Turkeys Beware!

Seems to happen around this time every year. And curiously enough, it’s always on a Thursday. I’m sure our Founding Fathers carried the tradition of Thanksgiving from Europe to Plymouth Plantation.

Happy Thanksgiving To All

It seems to have been happening annually since 1621. Whether it was an act of generosity as it is recorded by History or simply due to the fact that they were outnumbered two to one, the Pilgrims started our greatest American secular tradition: Having family and friends over for turkey, cranberry sauce and a Thursday...
