As described in a previous article, Prince Harry of Britain romped in the buff throughout Las Vegas and used the judgment of Lindsey Lohan allowing one of the women with him to take pictures of the joyful occasion.

Prince’s Vegas ‘secret’ gets bared

It was some time ago when the 7-year-old hurricane boy was not quite yet six. We were visiting an old friend, both in his age and the years we’d shared together.

Women at Augusta National?

I recently read the following headline from U.S. News & World Report concerning an article by Health Day reporter Alan Mozes. The headline read, “College Students Who Binge Drink Say They’re Happier.”

Wholesome TV just a pipe dream now

Recently I read where Don Grady, the actor who played the character Robbie on the long-running TV series “My Three Sons,” died.

Cussing works across the generations

As a general rule, I do not spend much time envying what someone else has. I must admit, however, I do envy those rare guys who keep all their tools neatly aligned in their shop.

Family pet decides fate of baby goose

The 8-year-old princess girl has been on a real rampage to salvage the world. The princess would make Sally Struthers look like a cold-hearted grinch.

Tease photo

San Fran laws strips away modesty

The beautiful city of San Francisco, Calif., which gave us such wonderful treasures as Nancy Pelosi and America’s first Gay Day Parade, has now added another feather in its hat. It seems that San Francisco, by law, allows anyone to walk the public streets of San Francisco in the nude and to enter any business establishment that serves the public, nude as well.

Maybe there's an award for the most trophies

Last week, I went down to Destin, Fla., to attend the Georgia Press Association's awards dinner. The awards dinner is designed to give awards to newspapers for excellence in coverage, articles written, editorials, etc. I was a beneficiary of one of the awards and will not bore you with the details. Rather, I noticed a growing trend concerning awards.

Tease photo

I ain't just playing possum here, folks

I, like many Americans, have now decided that I will be dropping out of America's labor force. At least, I intend to drop out from my current position as a small-town lawyer and try to move my life into another direction.

‘Follow the leader’ isn’t very relaxing

While vacationing at the beach, I have noticed a few phenomenons which I think are universal to the human race.

Tease photo

‘Thrones’ gets a heads up politically

Over the past few months, my wife and I became enthralled watching the HBO mini-series “Game of Thrones.” For those who are watching the show, you know what it is about.

Tease photo

Friends move with winds of time

The little 7-year-old hurricane boy is sad. There is nothing much worse than seeing a sad hurricane. If this continues, he might become a tropical depression. He's sad because one of his good friends may not be returning to his school next year.

New Yorkers face soda pop cops

In case you needed another reason to avoid going to New York City, Mayor Bloomberg has proposed a ban on serving sodas and other sugary drinks at restaurants, delis, sports arenas and movie theaters if the drink is more than 16 ounces.

The word gay, conjures up so many thoughts

I was sitting down to watch TV the other night when the 7-year-old hurricane boy looked me straight in the eye and said, “Daddy, is Justin Bieber gay?”

Tease photo

Summertime's nothing to snipe at

This past week at church the younger children sang a few songs at the 11 o'clock service. On this particular occasion, the kids met about an hour before service and practiced the songs they would sing. There had been no practice previously, so they had to learn the songs that morning prior to singing.

Tease photo

Certainties in life dog us always

Benjamin Franklin once famously stated there are only two things that are certain in life, death and taxes. I’m never one to quibble with the founding fathers but I think there may be a few other things that are certain in life.

Poor judgment with toothache by Marek Olszewski

Life has many lessons that one must learn over the years. Some are relatively simple such as don’t put your hand on a hot stove. Other lessons may take time to learn and some you would not even consider until the situation arises.

Tease photo

Cell phones more crafty than smart

As we all know, technology is rapidly evolving such that what was very useful a few years ago can become obsolete almost overnight. I am constantly amazed at how something that seemed to be perfect a few years ago can become “old hat” a few years later.

Tease photo

Inspiration gets whupped up at one sorry breakfast

The 7-year-old hurricane boy continues to plough through life unabated, leaving a path of destruction and mayhem wherever he goes.

Tease photo

That Miss Universe ... what a guy!

Just in case there is any need for further proof that I am being trampled and left behind in the dust of changing values in this country, I learn that the Miss Universe Pageant has decided to allow transgender women to compete in the Miss Universe Pageant.

Tease photo

Real men don't cry over sports

The Wall Street Journal recently published an article concerning basketball's March Madness. The article was titled "March Madness Turns Into Crying Game." It was talking about the recent trend where players cry after crushing defeats or uplifting wins.

Tease photo

Swinging time in Vegas left me rattled

For the first time in my sheltered life, I went to Las Vegas. Sodom and Gomorra look like a tent revival compared to Vegas.

Tease photo

A fruit fly walked into a bar and ...

I remember somewhere around junior high school studying genetics. All the studies seemed to revolve around the behavior of fruit flies.

Tease photo

Bacon may bring you closer to heaven

Just in case there is not enough news from the city of Detroit to disgust you, I’ll add one new tidbit. You may have seen where Amanda Clayton won $1 million in the lottery and was then followed by Channel 4 Detroit News, which showed her still purchasing food on a Bridge card, which is the state version of food stamps in Michigan.

Tease photo

What would you spend $8,100 on?

In the continuing saga of Americans willing to pay for any item known to man that supposedly looks like any other item known to man, I am now stunned to learn that a Chicken McNugget found by Rebekah Speight of Dakota City, Neb., which is alleged to have looked like President George Washington, sold for $8,100 on ebay.

A little wine goes a long way in France

I recently read an article in the Wall Street Journal titled “Why French Parents are Superior.”

Tease photo

We pick up the tab for other people’s ‘fun’

I’m increasingly amused by the newest arguments over contraceptives. As everyone knows, the president has ordered insurance companies must provide contraceptive coverage for anyone being insured by an employer.

Tease photo

What constitutes an emergency?

I saw recently where Congress and the president have agreed to continue the current program of providing cell phones, free of charge, to anyone who is receiving food stamps. (When did 911 become the number to call for emergencies? Take the Quik Quiz to find out.)

Tease photo

‘Express yourself’ on that special day

Well, they held the big event again Sunday night. I’m talking, of course, about Madonna’s halftime show. I mean, did anyone really care about the Super Bowl?

Tease photo

Ghost show spooks princess

A few weeks ago, I wrote about watching “Finding Bigfoot” with the 7-year-old hurricane boy. He loves to watch anything involving monsters, dinosaurs or destruction.

Tease photo

Tyler belts out star-mangled banner

Boy, the AFC National Football Game Championship was quite a spectacle. Of course, I don't mean the game, but actually Steven Tyler, lead singer for Aerosmith and, of late, noted for being a judge on "American Idol," singing — or more accurately described by one commentator as "butchering" — the national anthem. (Know what a rampart is? Click on T.'s column and take the quiz to find out.)

Tease photo

Bigfoot still outstepping ‘experts’

I was sitting on the couch last night with the 7-year-old hurricane boy and 8-year-old princess, watching Animal Planet’s “Finding Bigfoot.” I’m not much of a believer in Bigfoot but I must admit that I do have at least a passing infatuation with the subject and perhaps a small percentage, let’s say 10 percent, belief maybe he exists.

The New Year has really started off with a bang.

Oh, what a lovely attic you have

Christmas time is almost upon us and for this year it means preparation for an upcoming Christmas party. My wife decided we should have a Christmas party this year.

Tease photo

Gee ... Abe’s got enough statues

It seems that every day I read of some revered monument or historical place which has been destroyed or, worse yet, had the name changed from the original person honored to some newer, in vogue candidate.

Tease photo

Shake, shake, shake what you got until ...

I just returned from a glorious trip to Orlando with the wife, 7-year-old hurricane boy, and 8-year-old princess girl.

Christmas brings change of heart

Well, I’m pretty sure the Christmas season must be nearing. There are many telltale signs, but the most glaring sign of all is the desperation effort by the just turned 7-year-old hurricane boy to correct his wayward ways in time for removal from Santa’s naughty list to the horn of plenty list.

Duggars go for an even 20 kids
