Mother Nature Has PMS

I knew that we couldn’t get through the whole Winter Season without Mother Nature PMS’ing.  Three snowstorms have hit the Southern New England area this past weekend leaving a total of 21″ of snow on the ground. So far this Winter, we had been lulled into a false sense of security with relatively mild temperatures and liquid, rather than frozen precipitation.  Temperatures have been in the mid to upper 40’s (we even had two days in the 60’s) and so far only one day where we have had sub 0°…

NFL Championship Game Isn’t SUPER

It’s finally here.  After two weeks of relentless media thoughts, theories and speculation.  The NFL Championship game is on Sunday.  Notice how we didn’t use the “official” name of the game.  Why?  Because it is copy written and the NFL which owns the copy-write has threatened legal action against anyone who uses the name without specific written authorization.  I guess that we could say something like “S*p*r Bowl”, but that looks stupid.  I guess we could also beat around the bush and mention something like a Super ball in a…

Christmas is Over…

It’s over…  I can’t believe it.  It seems as though it was only yesterday that we were getting the Turkey for Thanksgiving. It can’t be true… I need more time, there are more presents that I have to get… It seems as though the Christmas Season is getting shorter and shorter each year.  When I was 8 years old and going to the old Apex Department Store in downtown Pawtucket, RI, it had to be at least six months between Thanksgiving and Christmas Day, it certainly felt that way.  Today,…

It’s Christmas time again

Well it’s two weeks before Christmas, and I still have no idea what the hell I am getting everyone. I go through this every year and always run out two or three days before Christmas to get everyone’s gifts. I usually do pretty good, I think so anyway. You never know really what to get someone for Christmas. My wife always says that she doesn’t need anything or she doesn’t want anything but I know if I don’t get her anything I am in deep shit. My daughters are now…
