Oh my. Another sex scandal. Say it ain’t so. A man of power and honor, cheating on his wife. Who could do such a thing? I’ll tell you who……..EVERYONE! It makes no difference who you are, where you live, when you were born, what your occupation, or what so-called moral compass you think you have.Continue reading “Real Talk, About Sex!”

Wow! It’s been nearly 2 months since I wrote my last blog, and I’m not exactly sure why. I don’t think that my time has been any more, or less, tied up in recent weeks, and it’s not like I don’t have things on my mind I want to talk about, but for some reasonContinue reading “I Could”
A Mothers Day Blog To My Big 4.
I couldn’t possible let Mothers Day go by without saying something about the Mothers in my life, and what they mean to me. So here goes. To Susan Young, my biological Mother: You gave me life, then you gave me life experiences. When we moved to Oregon in 1975, and then Idaho in ’78, IContinue reading “A Mothers Day Blog To My Big 4.”
Now You’re A Man, But You’re Still My Son.
Today is April 26th, 2012. 18 years ago today I was privileged to welcome Aidan Carruth-McKay Chick into the world. He was my first child, and quite possibly the individual most responsible for the person I am today. Not necessarily because of anything he did, but simply for just being my son. On this day, his 18th birthday,Continue reading “Now You’re A Man, But You’re Still My Son.”
True Peace of Mind
As an atheist, I am always interested in a healthy debate about the existence, or non-existence of god, and all that comes with it. In a conversation that I had this week, with a good friend of mine, she made a comment about her Dad, who passed away last year, looking down and laughing at her. Knowing thatContinue reading “True Peace of Mind”
Far More Bitter Than Sweet
It’s been nearly a year since my wife and I began to entertain the idea of moving from Dallas back to Boston. Although I was completely content with my life in Texas, there was always a part of me that wished I was still living in Massachusetts. It was my REAL home. The greatest place on earth.Continue reading “Far More Bitter Than Sweet”
Just 1 Of The 17,065 Days Of My Life
I have no idea how the day started. We we’re at a campsite in upstate Idaho. We had been at Yellowstone National Park for a few days and this was a pitstop on our way back home. I do remember that it was a beautiful sunny day, sometime around August 5th, which was my birthday.Continue reading “Just 1 Of The 17,065 Days Of My Life”
Good gracious. I have so much on my mind, yet nothing I want to write about. Booooooooo. Stay tuned. I promise to write something soon.
It’s Really Not A Lot
My Dad always used to say to me, “Figures lie, and liars figure.” I never really understood at the time what it meant. As I got older, it became quite clear. People will use numbers in the way that most benefits them. I have often cited cigarette smoking statistics as a perfect example. Now, IContinue reading “It’s Really Not A Lot”
Ya Gotta Love ‘Em
I put it out to my Facebook friends to give me a topic to write about, as I had not done a blog in over a week, and I was itching to write about something. After a few suggestions, some good and some bad (shoes? Really, Julie?), the idea of writing about my kids wasContinue reading “Ya Gotta Love ‘Em”
