Let’s face it – the prospect of a sober St. Patrick’s Day may leave you feeling a bit out of the loop. The holiday, which is highly popular all over the world, has a reputation for being a pretty big drinking day. Let’s be clear – there’s nothing wrong with having some beers on St. Patrick’s Day. But for some, having a few beers isn’t really an option. If you’re in recovery, hoping to provide a child-friendly celebration, or simply not a drinker, it’s easy to feel left out on St. Patrick’s Day. But you don’t have to feel that way. In fact, in many ways, a sober St. Patrick’s Day is a better St. Patrick’s Day. You can focus on the true history behind the holiday It may surprise you to learn that St. Patrick’s Day isn’t really a heavy drinking holiday in many… [Read more]

This past weekend, me and a couple of my friends were out and about having drinks outside of a nightclub. The club in question is one that has a reputation for being a cougar hunting ground so many players go out there to “get chose” so to speak by ladies north of forty looking to have a good time. After a few hours pass a few single friends of mine were spotted making an entrance, we (the boys at the table) introduce them to our girlfriends and wives and they made nice before proceeding in to the hunting grounds to do their thing. After an hour or so, one of the guys exits from the dance floor with a woman in tow—their hands liberally exploring each others bodies—and they walk around a corner and disappear. As we watched this go down, my buddy’s lady—looking baffled—asked… [Read more]

Many people like the character of Richard Harrow played by Jack Huston on HBO’s hit show Boardwalk Empire. While we may admire Richard Harrow as a professional and a marksman, the true reason behind his likability seems to be somewhat of a mystery to folks that fell in love with him. What he had that many of the characters in Boardwalk Empire, and in many shows like it, is humanity. In this one man we get a complex mix of loyalty, respect, good and evil. Richard, to me, was similar to a warrior’s sword back in the feudal times. When warriors acquired their family sword, it was a treasured heirloom that was a representation of their ancestors along with being a deadly weapon that could protect them in times of danger. When you received it, it was in good shape because the warrior sword was… [Read more]

Many lives have been decimated due to the terror of Typhoon Haiyan… something to the tune of 10 million and we are still not positive on the numbers being reported in terms of death and devastation. This morning I heard an interview with one of the victims of the storm and she commented about how things are so desperate that people are drinking water, no matter where it comes from in order to survive. It is not something that should be passed over if we have the ability to help. One thing that I know causes people to stay their hands at giving money blindly to charities and relief funds is the vile corruption of many cold-hearted people who use it for personal gain instead of actual help. For this I have made sure to do my research into companies that have had a solid… [Read more]

Recently with the huge distraction coming out of Miami dealing with the alleged locker room bullying, it became very evident to me how people are easily led. One of the reasons that evil men are easily put into power is due to the public’s laziness in researching facts, awaiting the full story, and thinking objectively. Why do we find it so hard to wait for the full story whenever something happens? This culture of reaction is one that keeps websites like TMZ paid, and allows for any media space to write opinion pieces knowing that it will be taken as fact by the majority of readers. We all blame the big bad “media” on our societal issues but are we doing enough to change that influence? Short answer is no, and when a one-sided story comes out and the public rushes out to grab their… [Read more]

Tipping has been a controversial subject since forever hasn’t it? It brings back the very first scene of Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs where Steve Buscemi’s character “Mr. Pink” vehemently defends his right to not leave a tip. But why do people behave this way when they know that the one rule for waiting staff at any restaurant is that you leave a tip in addition to your meal? Why not stay home if you’re that serious about stiffing the help? Recently a Pastor named Alois Bell was outraged when one of the employees at Applebees put her receipt on Reddit for the world to see. Please see the image to the right for the receipt in question. So angry was Alois in fact that she forgot everything that her bible taught her about forgiveness and chose to go on the war path for the waitress’s… [Read more]

I Am…

Muhammad Ali said “I am the greatest!” Usain Bolt said “I am a legend”. What confidence! I can think of a few others such as Beanie Man who answers this question based on his sexual prowess and attraction as he chants in his song – “Who am I?, the girl dem sugar!!!” This question has the power to elicit confidence as well as confusion, delusion, and doubt. Often times the question comes from the need to introduce oneself. With hand outstretched, do you give your name? “Hi, I am Delaney”, or “My name is Jordan and I am a singer/song writer”. This kind of response indicates the perceived value of associating “who you are” with “what you do”. Have you ever seen the reaction of “Hi, I’m David and I am a doctor” to the response of, “Oh, nice to meet you David, what kind… [Read more]

There are a lot of men out there who will sleep with anything.  Everyone has their own preferences, but there are many cases where a guy just wants to get some.  A lot of times they don’t care from whom, and this is where the problem lies. By lowering your standards people will talk, and word will get around that you will jump on anything that moves.  There are several reasons that you don’t want to be the person people are talking about. Building and maintaining a good reputation is one of the prime concerns for a man of worth, and anything that can have a detrimental effect on this can easily hinder his future actions and plans. If you start slipping and begin to entertain a certain “type” that isn’t up to your standards, word will get around. Lowering your requirements for the sake of a… [Read more]
