03-12-14-My Morning Thoughts: “the old dress code”

03-12-14-My Morning Thoughts: “the old dress code” There wasn’t much of a dress code when I was going to school but at times “the powers that be” did flex a little authority here and there. I remember one time I got sent home from school (which was 5 miles up hill both ways…LOL) for wearing my brand new pair of cowboy boots. When I got home my mother was not a happy camper! She said get in the car, drove back to school and walked right into the principal’s office…I’ll never forget this because I wasn’t sure what was coming out next…when she said to the principal…you sent my son home from school for wearing brand new cowboy boots? And the principal said, yes Mrs. Insana boots are not allowed…then my mother pointed to the several holes in my Levis and the tear in my t-shirt and said…don’t you think you sent him home for the wrong reason!...Mom always tells it like it is…plain and simple.

03-11-14-My Morning Thoughts: Alert The Media!

03-11-14-My Morning Thoughts: Alert The Media! Oh no!...Yes, I have run out of things to say this fine morning…I wonder if this is how Forest Gump felt when he just stopped running?...or how Dorothy felt when she found out she could just tap those ruby shoes 3 times and she was home?…or how Nixon felt when he became the first president to resign the presidency?…or how Einstein felt when he flunked algebra?… or how Martin Charles Scorsesse felt the first 7 times he didn’t win the best director Oscar?…or…I guess I did have something to say today…LOL…have a great day all…plain and simple.

03-10-14-My Morning Thoughts: Just Once!

03-10-14-My Morning Thoughts: Just Once! Do you remember that scene in “Good Will Hunting” when Will (the guy from nowhere) just literally out schools that ‘Harvard intellectual’ in the bar?...now tell me you wouldn’t love to be him if not just for one moment in time!...great movie…have a great Monday all…plain and simple.

03-07-14 My Morning Thoughts: “Global Warming”

03-07-14 My Morning Thoughts: “Global Warming” Since I’m a very scientific person (ya right) who has been trained in the atmospheric pressure field of feeling sub-zero temperature precipitation for almost an entire……3 months now, I’m here to tell ya…there aint NO global warming cause I’m still freezing in Cleveland!!!!...however it is supposed to warm up today…have a wonderful safe weekend all!...plain and simple.

03-05-14 My Morning Thoughts: “Unnoticed Miracles”

03-05-14 My Morning Thoughts: “Unnoticed Miracles” Day in and day out I walk by these little miracles and more than often they appear to go unnoticed, maybe a cool breeze that hits me right in the face or a lone seagull flying overhead gracefully floating into the blue sky. I could say I’m too busy today to notice such things or tomorrow I’ll take some time to look around or a million other excuses to prolong the wonders of the world, but if I don’t start now there will be some point in my life to be sure, that when reflecting back, I’ll be saying things like, I should have spent more days enjoying the moments…Today, and every day after, I’m putting forth the effort to notice those little miracles… Whether it be, as simple as the snowflake that hits my tongue or the sunset sizzling in the distance on the lake or everything in between…and as always, the amazing miracles of family and friends I can share these little wonders with…plain and simple.

03-03-14-My Morning Thoughts: “Jungle Book”

03-03-14-My Morning Thoughts: “Jungle Book” “Bare necessities those simple bare necessities forget about your worries and your strife”…the best animated cartoon movie (for me) ever! You know why? Well tell the truth now, how many started singing this while you were reading it????...I know there are so many higher-tech animated movies but we can’t forget the classics…plain and simple.

02-26-14-My Morning Thoughts: The Favorite Song?

02-26-14-My Morning Thoughts: The Favorite Song? Can there be a favorite song? Could it be just the song we remember playing thousands of times in our lives? I think I probably played thousands of songs thousands of times but the song I played the most was probably “Instant Karma” by john Lennon…”well we all shine on, like the moon and stars and the sun”…what else can I really say about that…plain and simple.

02-25-14-My Morning Thoughts: “Tuesday’s”

02-25-14-My Morning Thoughts: “Tuesday’s” You know I was thinking that maybe Tuesday is the most forgotten day of the week. I mean everyone talks about the dreaded Monday all the time and the Hump day of Wednesday and Thursdays have become the prequel to the weekend and of course Friday and Saturday are the weekend and Sunday the day of rest…but never a word of Tuesday in comparison. Poor little Tuesday, no wait, come to think of it there use to be a thing called two for Tuesday’s on the radio back in the day! Ya they use to play two songs in a row from the same artist…you see…music brings everything together…Happy Tuesday everyone!!…plain and simple.

02-21-14-My Morning Thoughts: Birthday…

02-21-14-My Morning Thoughts: Birthday… What’s in a birthday? Is it a reminder of how far we made it? Could it be how much someone loves us? In a world that fly’s by in a blink of an eye is it a constant that we are still here? It really doesn’t matter much of what a birthday is when you get the chance to say… I love you Mom…happy birthday…plain and simple.

02-20-14-My Morning Thoughts: “would you still love me”

02-20-14-My Morning Thoughts: “would you still love me” If I said I loved the president and all he stood for would you still love me? If I said I think atheists are one hundred percent right would you still love me? If I said I loved all conservatives would you still love me? If I said I loved Christianity would you still love me? I could probably say a bunch of things you may or may not agree with but I would never base my feelings or degrade my respect for anyone because I don’t see exactly eye to eye with them. We may believe in different things some slight and some monumental however we do believe in ‘something’ and that makes us unified with the belief of that ‘something’…sure words can hurt, people can hurt, things can hurt though disagreement should not hurt, it should enlighten at bare minimum in my mind. We are still all human beings! The air we breathe is the same! The problems we face affect all, one way or another! There are plenty of times in life that we may disagree on politics, religion and just about everything else in between…nevertheless…know that I believe in you…and…I still love ya my brothers and sisters!...plain and simple.
