Ah, warfare, it is changing quickly

As the troops stormed the beaches, low-flying air support was seen overhead. Gun emplacements garnered the share of victims as the number of fatalities grew. Meanwhile carpet bombing slaughtered innocents over the populous city and fires raged seemingly everywhere. Wait, stop, that was wars, battles of the past. Today’s prime video shows more distinct methods […]

Believe it or not...

Yes folks, there are still many people who do not believe in climate change. There are those who point out that in 1922 there was a record high temperature on December 14th, that tied the record  this past December 14th, therefore climate change theorists have no idea what they are talking about. According to the […]

Smell Swell

‘Secret’ is/was an antiperspirant/deodorant for women manufactured by Proctor & Gamble. It is sold in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Secret was launched as the first female deodorant in 1956, after more than 10 years of research that began in 1945. Don’t get me wrong, women wanting to smell attractive to the other sex […]

A plethora of embarrassments

Look, any time I can use a high  class word like plethora, I will. Definition: a large or excessive amount of (something):...a bunch of... This is where I once again take pot shots at the very dumb Republican Party. Following President Biden’s State of Union Address, where pretty much everybody said he did an outstanding […]

Please Biden and Trump...go away!

The arena is pretty well set and pandering seems to be the winner. Come this November, unless one, or both of the presidential candidates gets convicted, outright dies, or falls into irreversible heath or scandal, it will be Joe Biden for the Democrats and Donald Trump for the Republicans. Yes folks, we’re screwed. On the […]

I don't wanna go to bed

If you recall early childhood, or are the parents of young children, the phrase "I don’t wanna go to bed" is commonplace. But why?

Cancer...again!

It has been 12 years since my diagnosis and subsequent treatment for cancer. One of the better parts of the disease is that, in many cases, it can be treated and life goes on. In my case, the doctor broke my illness in a matter-of-fact way by saying yes, you have bladder cancer, but we […]

Finances in the Holdraker Household

I consider myself a bit street smart and along with my college degrees and all I have learned, read and taken in over the past 7+ decades, a bit knowledgable on numerous subjects. History, wars, political knowledge, I’m your man, finances, however, are a foreign language. I liked algebra and geometry so much in high […]
