I have been requested to find out where the phrase ‘wake up and smell the coffee’ originated. Wow! Can opened, worms everywhere. It is really a hot topic where a number of people seemingly coined the phrase, including Ann Landers. That beats the second best, ‘wake up and smell the burnt bacon’ coined by Alice … More Wake up and smell the whatever!!!
Yesterday someone told me that I was the spitting image of my father. Naturally, I decked the guy. Comparing me and my father to some spit. The nerve.￼ What exactly is a spitting image? What immediately comes to mind is someone with the camera taking a picture of some spittle on the sidewalk. What is … More Spittin’ Image!!!
It’s very annoying to me that during an interview some people ask and answer their own questions. Example: “Do I think this is lame? Yes.”￼￼ Seriously, for some reason it drives me nuts. I used to have a teacher who would do the same thing. We were never able to answer the question that was … More Am I what!?!?
OK, I admit it. I am the whistleblower. Now can we get on with this thing and end it one way or another? I’m missing out on some good TV shows.

PETA is once again throwing a fit regarding the ceremony of Punxsutawney Phil to try to spare the groundhog from the stress it gets from the very short ceremony.

Somewhere there’s a woman due on that date that is going to … More I’m having triplets!!!￼
I still can’t believe that Super Bowl Sunday is still not declared a national holiday. It’s the Super Bowl. It’s the only day named as super. Super Christmas? Nope. Super Christopher Columbus Day? Nope. We could actually have the holiday on Monday which makes sense because people are either hung over or exhausted.￼￼ Plus, all … More It’s not a holiday???
One of my grand children was looking at a magazine and said to me, “Look grandpa, it’s a frikin’ elephant.￼￼” Stunned, I asked him what he said. He said it again, “It’s a frikin’ elephant!” I was about to scold him when I took a good look at the magazine article and sure enough he … More A frikin’ elephant!!!
We finally caved to the 4K television craze. now I need to figure out what to do with the other 3999 TVs. This is a lot of work. As many of you already know the 4K TV he’s really quite amazing. Watching a movie or TV show that was filmed or taped in high definition … More I have 4000 TVs!!!
We recently started watching the TV series Breaking bad. The wardrobe department had it pretty easy with Bryan Cranston. He spent at least 75% of the time in his tightly whiteys￼￼￼. It makes me wonder if the dude just doesn’t like wearing pants. I don’t either, but at least I wear boxers.￼ We really love … More Bad Break!!!
