Today my Mother would be 93. She passed in 2009 at the age of 88. She was a bartender while I was growing up, which was great. I could go to her with my problems, and she would pour me a shot of milk, wipe the counter and give me her advice. She is deeply missed.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all the women that email me from Russia. You’re the best. Love you, mean it.
RIP Shirley Temple. You gave my daughter and granddaughter many hours of joy.

I could watch this video all day. Amazing animation of old masters paintings. NSFW unless you work in an art gallery, and not something for the kids. As stated in the Manifesto, “Beauty in this interpretation is the silent companion of Life , inexorably leading from the smile of the baby, through erotic ecstasies to the grimaces of pain that close a cycle destined to repeat ad infinitum.”
Happy Birthday to my brother Don, the best brother a boy could have growing up. He always included me when he went with his friends to play baseball at the park, was generous with everything he owned, and gave me the guitar he got for Christmas when he lost interest in it.
