There’s Nothing Like Kentucky Basketball

There’s Nothing Like Kentucky Basketball

Basketball season. It’s finally here! Since the moment we watched the 2012 National Champions, our beloved Kentucky Wildcats, cut down the nets in New Orleans on April 2, 2012, we have been anxiously awaiting the start of another season. I have no idea what this season will bring, but I know it’s going to be [...]

Your vote is more important than you think

Your vote is more important than you think

Religion and politics! It’s absolutely mind boggling to think that these two words define two things that have the power to destroy friendships, families, and entire nations.  There is nothing more likely to make my blood boil right now than simply turning on my television or my radio.  Even if I just want to get [...]

Twas the Week of Blue Madness

Twas the Week of Blue Madness

Twas the week before NOLA and all through the land, The hoop fans were stirring and ringing their hands. The four teams were destined and all set to show, At last, the Big Easy, their dreams would be known.

Insanity of the Big Blue Nation

Insanity of the Big Blue Nation

It scared me the first time I found myself having a physical reaction to a Facebook post which read, “Selling my UK basketball tickets for Saturday’s game.

Stop Negative Campaign Ads

Dear Candidates, Just tell me why I should vote for YOU!  That is all I need to hear from you. Let me do my own research on the other candidates. If I want to get to know them up close and personal, I can dig for their dirt all by myself. I’m really tired of [...]

Counterfeit Patriotism

Counterfeit Patriotism

April 16, 2011 Please note – the names have been changed to protect the guilty. There is a local Lexington restaurant, which we will call “Swindler’s” that might have a few good meals on the menu, but I’d rather eat a lousy tasting meal in a place where integrity guides the business.  To think that [...]

October 28, 2010 ~ Recently the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) put out a Congressional Report Card to inform us about who in Washington really supports our troops and veterans.

A piece of my mind for the candidates in the Bluegrass state

A piece of my mind for the candidates in the Bluegrass state

October 27, 2010 ~ There has been a lot of talk about imposing term limits and I happen to agree with that philosophy, but I don’t think we need to limit those terms to time served in office.  Just as our Founding Fathers did not intend for people to choose politics as their career of [...]
