Michigan Art Show

Jack Snider, who drew the Bettie Page get well card for me about ten years ago, is showing his work along with three other area artists in Holland, Michigan. Posted by Picasa


I get real alarmed at some of the personal stuff that bloggers put out there for the whole world to see. Things that should only be revealed to a shrink. There are all kinds of predators and crazies out there and it's not all that hard to find you if you look vulnerable.

The Marriage Bed

I can tell you how my wife and I will die. She will have heat prostration and I will freeze to death.

What's funny?

There's nothing more personal and subjective than one's sense of what is or is not funny. There are just two TV shows in recent memory that make me laugh out loud. There was Everybody Loves Raymond and now there's Boston Legal. Boston Legal just about puts me on the floor in hysterics. I wake up laughing about it in the middle of the night. This is not recommended if you sleep with another person.

I've been Fritzed

The machine has returned home after a week-long stay at the cyber hopspital. It was on the fritz. Which leaves me with a gnawing puzzlement. Who is this Fritz guy that takes the heat for everything that doesn't work?

Nurse Bettie Page

I guess I have a nurse fetish. No doubt inspired by the notorious Bettie Page, as drawn for me by Grand Rapids, Michigan artist Jack Snider when I was in the hospital. ( Posted by Picasa

Two of the brightest lights in the generally dull blogosphere are Nurse Ratched ( and EtaoinShrdlu
( who is a student nurse.

Reality shows ain't real

I don't want to believe there's more than a handful of viewers who are so dumb that they think the reality shows are what happens in real life. If you filmed a day in the life of any of those people or groups and put it on the air without hours and hours of editing, it would be so boring and dull that nobody would watch it.

The computer generation

At one of our local hospitals a baby was born clutching a computer mouse in his tiny little hand. His parents met through an online dating service.

I love blogs

Oh yeah, I waste hours punching the "next blog" button. After I got over the shock of realizing that English is fast becoming a second language on the web, I found some wunnerful stuff. Some are stupid, some are just silly like this one. It's worth the wear and tear on your fingers when you stumble upon something brilliant and/or funny. One of these years I will produce a list of favorites. But not today. Too busy blog surfing.
