01-09-15-My Morning Thoughts: Some might remember widespread hitchhiking in the days past and that it was reasonably safe. You may also remember when cars would breakdown on the side of the road a trucker would almost always pull over and give assistance or at least other cars would stop and help. This practice is pretty much gone now unfortunately and because of the cell phone probably never coming back in a universal way as far as I can tell. But I got to tell ya as a child when we were out driving somewhere my Dad always stopped to see if he could help stranded motorist…and I always thought that it was the coolest thing ever!...that feeling of helping others needs to be passed on in different ways today but it most certainly needs to be passed on and not forgotten…have a great weekend all and help out when ya can…plain and simple.
01-08-15-My Morning Thoughts: TBT I was just thinking of this blast from the past that many use to partake in…shake hands, give your word and keep the promise…now that one needs to make a comeback!...you with me?...plain and simple.
01-07-15-My Morning Thoughts: A world without music, well let’s see; No background music in movies to set the mood, how would a musical be without music?, no commercial jingles stuck in our heads (that’s good and bad I guess), nothing but dead space in elevators, nobody whistling, no dancing to the beat (that may be good for me haha), no rock concerts, no children’s choirs, no toys with songs, no musicians, and the biggest loss in my opinion…no link across this world that helps us all join together because you don’t need to know the language to enjoy a melody…plain and simple.
01-06-15-My Morning Thoughts: I have to say this…I hope all sane people would agree that the shooting of innocent law-abiding police officers that protect us day in and day out is just horrific? You can’t be right-in-the-head if you honestly believe such acts would sway towards any kind of goodness in the world! …we must communicate with each other and demand that the leaders lead with the conviction and compassion towards “all” people…include don’t exclude…plain and simple.
01-05 -15-My Morning Thoughts: Did ya ever want to be somebody else? In the early years when I stumbled across the music scene I wanted to be Elvis, then John Lennon and then Stevie Wonder. As it is, I’m just me, born a Ridgerunner Pennsylvania boy raised in Cleveland that’s mainly Italian and Irish who loves his family enjoys wonderful friendships and likes to write songs every now and again…I-got-a-be-me…plain and simple.
01-01-15-My Morning Thoughts: Happy New Year! Hopeful this year is a wonderful year for all and that somehow someway the people of this world can learn to live together and coexist with love and kindness that’s in each and every one of us!…come on people get together…I know there’s still some turmoil in the world but I pray that any differences are few and far between and that love and peace overrule such differences, so we make this year a truly Happy New Year!...plain and simple.
12-31-14-My Morning Thoughts: “Endings” Ok listen, I’ve finished like 3 entire books ‘word for word’ cover to cover in my life so far…the rest of the books I’ve skipped paragraphs here and skimmed paragraphs there, and that’s about the extent of it. Now don’t get me wrong because I’ve started tons of books but I learned at an early age that I hate ENDINGS! Most endings never worked for me because it always seems writers never know when there ending should take place anyway. I read books and purposely skip the last page or two cause I know it’s just going to ruin it!...now tell me that’s not weird?...now sports articles or news articles or rolling stone like magazines, I read every word, even the end…if you read any books that the end is as good as the rest feel free to let me know…my new year’s resolution, read books completely…Have a Happy and safe New Year’s Eve everyone!...plain and simple.
12-30-14-My Morning Thoughts: I imagine since they put all those subliminal messages in commercials when I was growing up that they put them in all these computer games too….and it’s probably not really good thoughts generally…anyway, maybe we should lobby for positive subliminal thoughts like peace love and even reading writing and arithmetic? …I bet that would change some school grades in a hurry this coming year!…plain and simple.
12-26-14-My Morning Thoughts: Tough day to go back to work for sure!...have a great fantastic safe weekend all and if you got this day off, I’m happy for ya…plain and simple.
12-25-14-My Morning Thoughts: Merry Christmas… Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday’s to all and wishing that every day we remember that were all in this together…plain and simple.
