Welcome to my world.  I made it ! 76 years old.  No secrets, I never thought I would last this long.  One the other hand, I don’t drink to excess, quit smoking cold turkey in 1978,  I joined a gym at 74 for ticker strength, I enjoy cooking good healthy worldly food, in about four ethnicities, Asian , Indian, Jewish, Italian, Cajun, mixed with some French sharing with good friends and in my simple world have had a good life. I have been blessed.

I was married over three decades to the most wonderful woman in the world till she passed from cancer in 2007.  She was my rock... not a day goes by I don’t miss her.  

We traveled together to conferences, trade shows, unique and wonderful places, the best part was WE were privileged to meet incredible real purposeful people, and some that weren’t.  I never found a replacement...

I served my country in wars, made it through a school working in the culinary world, and photographing Weddings on weekends.  After I supported the troops as a contractor, did charitable work for decades, held certificates in diving, flew and owned real planes for thirty something years, did corporate work, managed my small hobby size invention and personal businesses in journalism, mentoring with children, being a caregiver and photography... life, it’s been fair to me, its good and I sleep at night...
I owe it all to my High School English teacher who hated me...  (WHO ME?)


I write about a myriad of subjects, and it takes three websites topically and typically to handle things.  This is a time of the political theatre, revenge, massive inquiries into a massive problem for the country, the courts and with elections coming, and the creeps popping up from the earth who use religion to rob people, and a real dangerous scumbag in the WhiteHouse which he has turned it into a  SH*THOUSE, who keeps me busy.  

On this website,  I address politics, religion and life, science and fact finding and I pull no punches.  There are many frauds, liars and cheats on these pages.  This is all about the bad people and they are connected.  But I also write about the good people and nature. 

There is a direct correlation between the politicians and the pastors on TV.  Both want your money or your vote which is your money.  Both want your backing.  Both will lie to you.  Both will take what they can get.  Both are corrupt. Both invoke degrees of higher embellishment.  Both groups are either scambags ( religious) and scumbags (politicians).

On my culinary site,  I address Food and cooking, from Olive oil to the slave labor in the industry from shrimp to the fake fish you probably got served when you were paying for high end grouper.  Estimates range as high as 80% of the time you are not really getting the top end you paid for.

Strange combo, politics is like food, they are similar.  In politics the actors you see are always on stage, and I like to sneak backstage.  The immersion behind the curtains gives you insight in what really goes on in the minds of some of these people you might see in leadership.  

Same goes for places you frequent for nourishment, it’s called presentation.  You might like what you see on the plate.  But not like what you don’t see in the kitchen.  And how can you tell, the investigators used DNA testing of the products.   Fifty years of this is enough...  It was an interest in photography that allowed me to capture what I saw and then write about it... and that ties it together and got me thrown out of some places I write about.

My semi-commercial site is for Photography Products and Services, and gadgets, lots of Do-it-yourself.  Great Hobbiest site and fun for the DIY crowd.

But, sooner or later you catch up to yourself... it’s called AGE. I should kick back and take it easy but I can’t. I cannot totally retire. I tried it three times and failed.   As long as my heart runs good, I’m off, running and writing.  And if you can’t handle the truth, due to a lack of intellect, morality, honesty, please leave now.  Because... thats all I know is truth... and it’s coming out.  

To bring truth to the forefront, I resort sometimes to tough talk.  I write in a Brooklyn mode, street talk,  which is both sarcastic, to the point, sadistic at times,  in an out of the box format or tone. I say what I think, how I think it. I do use strong language mostly by accident for which I apologize when idiots and morons do stupid things.  

So if you cannot tolerate a blue word here and there, have a nice day... I will not change, it’s my NY attitude, I don’t back down nor hold back when its folks who have maimed others. 

My temper gets riled when I hear how some of us forgot what a great place our country is and we as American Citizens listen to those who are trying to make you believe they ( like T-RUMP)  are saving us.  From what?  I only believe one thing, the biggest enemy of the United States is T-RUMP.   

He’s like a commercial, he tells you how bad it is and then how he can fix it.  Oldest scumbag approach to salesmanship in the world.  “ The Art of the Deal” should have been called “ The Fart of the Spiel”.  We won’t go into substance, I can tell you what he’s made of.  I knew him from NY.  OK, his latest tweets indicate he’s just made of hate mongered bullshit.

I rely heavily on some good incredibly aware and intelligent  journalists and websites that uncover the distortions and lies, half-truths semi-truths, partial truths, and creative writing by those lightly equipped underachievers with white powdered brains and sensitivities like FOX  (Faux News)  Our integrity starts with truth sites - Snopes, Politifact, Wikipedia,  CNN, The Washington Post, NY Times, great writers, great courageous people, and so forth.

Yes, I may repeat myself a few lines from articles and information after I have sourced them out.  Truth is truth and I’m making a point I shared by others.   Call it endorsement, agreement, and cohesion with another mans thinking.  I also might slip a “Blue” word in here or there, or anywhere but thats how I felt when I was writing in the moment and if you cannot handle it, leave. 

Check your ego at the door,  I’m not interested in anything from FOX news, Hannity, Coulter, Ingraham or Limbaugh nor any of the other drone bees that work in shock news and lies through the FOX chain.  Enough lies out there with a commercial company producing them, thats where you’ll find the FAKE, FAKE NEWS.  And people who are stupid enough to believe them.  

Those requiring a checkout, my favorites check out sites are cross checked with multiple sources.  After compiling from those sites, I start my own searching and verification, friends at papers and TV, some politicians, then I compile and only then is it good to go.   CNN, MSNBC, THE NY TIMES, THE WASHINGTON POST, POLITICO, SNOPES and twenty other sources.

No politicians, the good, the fake or otherwise full bodied scumbags, fake preachers, religious leaders, perverts, pedophiles and other scumbirds nor horses, sheep or canines were injured during the writing of this blog and website even though I had wished a few would have had something really deserving and unfortunate happen to them. 
If you cannot afford an attorney, my nephew will be available at the usual exaggerated attorney fees for malpractice cases so I can get my cut.  

Just so you know this year,  and special thanks to Donald J, T-RUMP  a new word has become ultra popular and now in print, in vogue and on TV so no emails , cards or letters,  just because I call T-RUMP a SCUMBAG and his followers SCUMBIRDS.   And Religious cheats SCAMBIRDS,  I’m not being vulgar, A person whose behavior is offensive to others. I use the words that best describe actions by someone.  SCUMBAGs have followers, SCUMBIRDS.  SCUMBAG is not considered an offensive a word anymore and is found in print and live on TV.  In Merriam-Webster there are over 100 synonyms, Scumbag was a  gift from the British.  God Bless the Queen...
