Let’s go bowling with Bruiser the Bear




I may bleed Burnt Orange, but I cannot help but be disappointed on how the Texas Longhorns played against the Baylor Bears. As the season came to an end, a 7-5 finish is two games better than a 5-7 finish; but for Texas, it is simply not acceptable. Here is a news flash for Texas Head Coach Mack Brown; you […]

Be Kind – For Everyone You Meet is Fighting a Hard Battle


My son was sitting on the couch texting while The Big Lebowski, a Cohen brothers’ movie, played in the background.

Hear me roar,” was the battle cry for a generation of women (and some of their mothers!) in 1975.  Oddly, this song, made famous by Helen Reddy, was written by two men!  Women wanted equality with men, in salaries especially, but in all rights, including fighting in wars.  “You’ve come a long way, baby!”  hyped the Virginia […]
