“To err is human,
but to persist in error (out of pride) is of the Devil.”
-Seneca the Younger
A Quaint Beginning …
Every generation looks at its successors and thinks, “oh these namby pambies can’t figure out life! They’re just going to ruin everything we worked so hard to build!” And today it’s no different. There’s a strong argument today’s young adults are weaker and more indecisive than any in the past! Especially the ones who attend college!
I believe the axis point is believing in God. That’s where family values are supported; a fortress for good tradition and strong families.
I also believe a group of insolent, violent rebels have found what they feel is a proud cause in waging an attack on Christian values. Spurred on by consequences of covid, like being locked down while taunted to criticize others in a political fishbowl, this group is a cornucopia of evil, finding, for some reason, now a good time to coalesce. Tens of thousands Continue reading “Is the Human Race Cannibalizing Itself?”

Washington County Fair, Richmond, RI
Saturday, August 14, 2021 Continue reading “Chris Bandi – Full Show”
Country star Chris Bandi graced the stage Saturday night at the Washington County Fair in Richmond, Rhode Island. He brought an impressively small band and made some impressively big sounds! Bandi even explained to the crowd his usual guitarist got COVID so this guitarist was a stand-in who learned the songs in a week! With only himself (vocal, guitar) and a guitarist and drummer (no bass), Bandi’s sound was actually an improvement over many much larger bands I’ve heard! (Let’s not mention the night before, when Easton Corbin made the fair audience wait a full 1-1/2 hours before taking the stage!)
Here’s Bandi having fun with an old Skynyrd track about Alabama! Continue reading “Chris Bandi – Sweet Home Alabama Mashup (Washington County Fair, RI, 2021)”

This won’t take long. My friend Sean has the President on his talk show in a half-hour (Hannity), and I want to check that out, and my drummer’s coming by for a late night session of music! But I wanted to sum up the day, the beginning of a promising week.
It was 65-degrees in Rhode Island, the first sunny day that begged me to go outside and stay there!
I bought tickets to see my favorite band.
I know, you’re shaking your head in disbelief! But I did!
Sugar, in a month!
And the truth is coming to a sizzle in our new world. It was inevitable, and it’s the way it should be. Ashli Babbitt rest in peace! Your death will never be answered, and America will always feel that pain. But through Continue reading “The Truth is Sizzling on Twitter”
We Got Your Back
The capitol’s surrounded by eight foot fences
But nobody’s sure what they’re defendin’
My mama taught me to double check my sources
I got all day and I’m gonna dance on the tension
This world’s spinning in a field of black holes
Up high in the mountains it’s as perfect as gold
The view on my horse and that settin’ sun
My freedom’s the glimmer off the side of my gun
We love you nature, yea, we got your back
All them fossil fuels coming out our smokestacks
Some people say we’re gonna stop spinnin’ soon!
I got all day and I’m just gonna try and be cool Continue reading “We Got Your Back (A Poem For 2021)”

Welcome to 2021 my friends!
You are not alone.
These posts speak for themselves!
As Americans watch a domestic Congressional election and anticipate someone being chosen as US President, the world is also on the edge, and crowds have been gathering to show support for Donald Trump. In many countries he’s considered a savior from an otherwise-inevitable fall to socialism and communism.
Thanks to Nicholas Clamorgan (@Nick_Clamorgan) for his post “The Free World supports @realDonaldTrump!” which is what led us Continue reading “The Free World Supports Donald Trump, While The City That Never Sleeps … Sleeps!”
A video from President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, wishing Americans a Christmas full of joy!
The President calls the birth of Christ the “greatest miracle in human history!” The First Lady tells us “we have been inspired by the kindness and courage of citizens across this country. Communities have found new ways to stay connected to each other. Courageous first responders, doctors, nurses have given everything to save lives.” Continue reading “Merry Christmas from The Trumps!”
I’ve been very lucky to have a great family.
Most of who I am is based on the examples set, good times laughing about Monty Python, getting far too interested in who everyone’s dentist is, beaching it all day, all summer as kids, dinner every night at home with the whole family, the smiles and smirks, raised eyebrows and such …
It all adds up to a person!
I was lucky to be raised well. Sounds a bit like bragging; maybe that’s why people are reluctant to talk about how Continue reading “The Things I Learned In Life”
