Baby Boomer Generation Knows Election Choices
Putting a new tenant in the White House is always a roll of the dice, a gamble the entire world hopes goes their way.

What happens when Frontier Communications customer service talks to aging baby boomers? For aging Frontier Communications customers who grew up with party line telephones and two channels on a black and white television, this is the Golden Age of media. Lightning fast fiber optics speed data into slow, old, desktops, but it’s still faster than […]
Why you need a blogger bill of writes when you call yourself a writer. If you’ve ever written anything that matters to you, you’re a writer. Say it loud, “I’m a writer.” Feels good, doesn’t it. Do it again. “I’m a writer.” Say it loud and proud, writer. “I’M A WRITER.” Now the hard part. […]

Genetics no excuse for bullies and bitches. Some time ago in the Baby Boomer fog of age, like grade school in the mid-60’s at Bangor Elementary, voted the cool school by all former Bearcats, bullies and bitches came in all shapes and sizes. Turns out the time of day also mattered for them. A kid […]
The wrong questions and answers still get the right words. All parents have heard questions from their kids that made them think they’ve both gone over the topic before. And they probably have, but that’s no excuse for ignoring any question from a kid. They want answers and you’re the answer man, the answer woman, […]
Every era has a song. This era needs a Man Anthem. This Man Anthem is inspired by Barney the Purple Dinosauer and the Republican National Convention. The epicenter of male testosterone in America is Cleveland, Ohio. As if to prove it, Candidate Trump took the stage the way Mr. McMahon takes to the ring. Into […]
