Hello! Thank you for dropping in on my tiny slice of cyber-where. This will be my final blog post…this year. I’ve included some rando pictures of silly stuffs. I anticipate much will change in 2020…and some things will not. What will those changes look like, it’s hard to say at the moment. But like most things in life, you can jump into the surf and wade out to meet them or just wait on the shore to see if the repercussions will be impactful.
What are you wearing?
Hmm. That came across a bit more creepy than I intended. I just meant, are you wearing a costume for the holiday? I did! See below!
And for giggles, here are some other Halloween costumes over the years. Try to guess the age and who I am just for fun!
Feel free to message me for feedback or if you think of a topic I should tackle!
I know the title sounds like I am wrapping up a movie or an epic HBO series but in reality, I’m talking about the output (quantity) of posts for my blog. So far this year of 2019 I have produced 16 posts (not including this one). By comparison, last year in June alone I posted 14 times!

As I’ve admitted on my podcast (The Freak Show podcast on Podbean), these days I’m more of a casual St Louis Blues fan. I’m not going to be a phony and say that I’ve been living and dying with each game of the Blues since my first game experience back in 1980.

Hello and good Cinco De Mayo! (May 5th)
Hello and spiffy Monday morning to everyone!
As a long suffering Indians fan, I am here to put my spin on the start to the season and my brutally honest assessment of my team’s chances in 2019. Today is April 1st…April Fools Day and as of this morning, the Cleveland Indians are in last place in their division sitting at 1 win and 2 losses. The silver lining is that the season is just begun and the team is only a game out of first place. Continue reading “Waaay too early panic bus edition of Cleveland Indians Baseball 2019”
Good morning…relatively speaking. The build up of anticipation and stress to set up and get my podcast interview with Michele Smith to go smoothly came and went. I navigated the normal work day and made a side trip to acquire a data cable to attach my iPhone XR to the speaker successfully. I arrived home after work and tested the setup for about 20 minutes to make sure everything seemed correct and viable with no issues. With the exception of the blue tooth function with the speaker disconnecting, everything else seemed OK. To circumvent this, I simply plugged in the data cord from the speaker to the iPhone and it worked like a charm.
With the testing and troubleshooting done, I recorded the interview pre-amble and sent Michele a text message to call me when she was ready. She responded that she would call in a few minutes and all that was left to do was wait. After a brief few minutes, Michele Smith calling popped up on my phone! We spoke for a minute or two to get acquainted as this was literally the first time I was talking to her. With my adrenaline flowing, we were now set to record!
Hello and welcome to my mobile blog! Some people like to think they are above others when maybe they really aren’t. But I can say for sure that I am above all of you! But, that is only because technically I am cruising at like 38,000 feet on an airplane. After my trip last week and about six hours of ‘downtime’ while on flights, I decided to try to utilize my time a little more constructively than just mindlessly staring out into space and playing iPad games. After some readers have read my blog they might argue that those activities are a better use of my time but I shall forge ahead undaunted! Continue reading “Up in the air…”
Hello…is it my blog you’re looking for?
For those of you that sang that in the voice of Adele in your heads instead of Lionel Richie, please stop. For those of you that read it as Morgan Freeman, good choice! Well Done! Bravo! Continue reading “The Freak Show Podcast”
Good morning cyber world! Sounds like a modern age theme park with WIFI and a plethora of digital projection images for as far as the eye can see, doesn’t it? Continue reading “Y2K References”
Hello to one and all! Officially we are on day four of 2019. How are you feeling? Anything change for you besides the calendar? For me I started a new employment position…and so far it is great!
Good day and welcome to my blog! Some days the topics are as random as they get and others I am very driven to box up a specific point (of view) and deliver it to my readers. Today is one of those such days!
Just a second. I will be right with you…

Have you been helped?
Over the weekend I got the opportunity to team up with a friend who has started up a live streaming business. His name is Ray and this business entity is called LiveStreamSTL. In addition to being on Facebook, his streaming service can also be viewed from his website and through YouTube. I have done a few screen captures of the event to show our mugs and also I have included the link in case anyone wants to check out my first shot at doing basketball play by play.
This was a fun time and all the coordinating parties involved were very accommodating. Should be a good building block for when we head out on location again this coming Saturday (December 15th) to call and bring live more high school basketball games live from Jefferson College in Hillsboro, MO. Check these out and tune in this Saturday!
Everyone have a great week and talk to you soon!

Hello worldwide readers! Feel free to browse around my blog for a wide-ranging list of topics and interesting perspectives on said topics. As many of you know, I am in the middle of a money drought mostly due to my upcoming wedding in less than four weeks. Then in short order afterwards, Christmas shall be here. Hopefully by February or March I will be able to dig out from under the associated debts for these two events or at least that is my plan. At that time (February-March) I hope to get back in the tattoo chair for some new body art and the blood-letting experience that goes with it.
