A Long Quiet Summer

If you noticed, I tok the summer off from doing a large amout of writing. It was the first time in nearly 4 years that I took a break. Not that I wasn’t busy. It was just that doing writing, was not hight on my list of things to do this summer. I had the […]

Catching Up

Just thought I’d catch up with all of you on some things since I’ve been busy lately. Some of it is serious some not so serious. Been watching thr e immigration battle in Arizona. I believe that the law has a lot of unintendeed problems for it, like: whaere are you going to put all […]

…And I’m Still a Cubs Fan

I haven’t said much about the Chicago Cubs since late last year. This is especially true since their swift departure from the play-offs for the second year in a row. Yep, I’ve been lying low this year. Until recently the team hasn’t done well. Injuries and a weak offence have kept them from taking the […]

Nursing Homes, Floods and Cubbies, Oh My!

I’ve been out of the loop lately and not writing since my mother became ill in September. Right now, she is in a nursing home, getting the therapy she needs to come home. Obviously, with her health being of great importance, I’ve been concentrating on that, instead of writing. I’m glad I’m doing that, but […]

The Cubs At All-Star Break

Since the All-Star Game is the traditional break in the baseball season, I thought it would be a good time to report on my favorite team, the Chicago Cubs. They’re still in first place, 4.5 games ahead in their division. Despite a few blips along the way, they are playing better than they did last […]

A Cub Update, 2008

Finally, I have a chance to do a Chicago Cubs update. The first six weeks of the season has found the Cubbies in first place in their division, one game a head of the Cardinals. Unlike last year, the hitting has been solid, especially at home. Derrick Lee has been hitting the ball as he […]

Another Update

Enough about politics! It’s time to get back to what this blog is about. That is what is going on in my life and all around me. What is happening? Well, The weather is good enough to go out and do my walking. I’ve been able to do that a few times in the last […]

The Last Cub Watch, 2007

The weather finally turned cooler in the Midwest this week. Temps are more like fall instead of summer. I went out today with a sweater and light gloves when I took my walk. So, I guess it’s time to put a wrap on the Chicago Cubs baseball season. As you all know, the Cubs were […]

Cub Watch #6

The Cubs regular season ended yesterday with a loss, but don’t despair. The second season is coming! The Play-offs start Wednesday with the Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix. This will be a tough series for the Cubs. The Diamondbacks are deep in pitching and had a 4-2 edge in the regular season over the Cubs. The […]

Cub Watch #5

While Arizona and New York have seen their leads shrink in each of the National League Divisions, the Cubs have managed to widen their lead slightly. They are now 1 1/2 games in front of the Brewers in the NL Central. They won the last two ball games in dramatic fashion, with some good pitching […]
