  • Date Which WIll Live In Infamy

    Doris Miller was a cook in the United States Navy and was stationed at Pearl Harbor on December 7th 1941....when you get a chance, google his name and read his story....it is truly an amazing one and it is a story that I think we should all know about......I will tell you that he was the first African American in history to receive the Navy Cross as a result of his actions on that fateful day....I would like to say I can only imagine what it was like to have been there but to be honest I can not even do that....a sleepy Sunday morning.....exploding into a hellish 110 minute nightmare at the mere drop of a hat....we lost over 2300 lives on that Sunday morning....I obviously was not even alive yet...but I still will NEVER forget what occured 70 years ago today.....take a moment today and in your own way recognize those that lost their lives defending this country on that Sunday morning....I know I will........thank you for stopping by .................Rick

  • why?????

  • NBA...Monday....etc.

    .....NBA players union have rejected latest offer from owners......which basically means they are on the verge of disbanding the union and simply not playing this season......I don't know which side to take simply because I am quite sure it is much more complex than what meets the eye.....I mean don't get me wrong....we all know this is primarily about one thing and one thing only....money....but I am also sure there are other things at play as well.....I am not even an NBA fan for the most part.....I do like the playoffs and the atmosphere they bring but as far as regular season goes I have to admit I rarely watch.....That being said I still think it is incredibly sad and beyond uncaring on the parts of both sides......the only one truly being hurt is the fan.....the NBA is a multi billion dollar a year business......there is enough to go around......I certainly hope that professional basketball does not come to an end here due to nothing more than greed.......i mean how much is enough for crying out loud.....welcome to Monday and I do hope you are having a good one......the weekend always seems to go by way to fast!!!!!.........Rick

  • Veterans

    .....I have an older brother named Steve.....he currently resides in Tampa Fl....since childhood I always looked up to him and could not have asked for a better brother......on thing about him that makes me proud to say I am his brother is the fact that he served this country for 11 years in the United States Army.....and he did so all over the globe.....I thank him now as I do all veterans who have served......future veterans who are serving now as well.......because of them we are free,,,,and I will NEVER forget that. Rick

  • Joe Pa

    ....I, much like people across the country, watched the coverage of Joe Paterno's firing last night on ESPN...I watched as they were showing some of the reactions on campus at Penn State and I also caught the coverage of Paterno himself when he came out of his house momentarily to say a few words.....First off let me say that I firmly believe Joe Paterno is a flat out good guy....who made a bad decision......Paterno has a track record of being a stand up guy who truly cared about the kids he coached......he lives eats and breathes Penn State.....he IS Penn State......which is exactly why I have to say that even though I have a tremendous amount of respect for him because of his accomplishments as a head coach, mentor, and father figure for so many,....He absolutely should have done more than he did.....when someone came to him and informed him of what they percieved to be happening, he absolutely 100 percent should have taken EVERY measure at his disposal to see that these charges where properly investigated by the appropriate authorities....period...end of story.....it's not a matter of whether or not he himself believed these charges were accurate.....they were extremely serious charges and I find it unbelievable and to be honest unexcuseable that he simply passed the buck and walked away.....YOU SIMPLY CAN NOT DO THAT.....and he had to know that....it is sad that his legacy will be forever tainted now to some degree as a result....but what is hundreds if not thousands of times more sad is the fact this could have been stopped and it wasn't......and to me the legacy of Penn State football and Joe Paterno is not nearly as important as it is for us to realize and recognize the fact that this could have been stopped had the right measures been taken.....if there is anything at all positive that can come out of any of this I would hope that it's the fact that from this point on there will be less looking the other way and more doing what is right.......anyways thank you as always for stopping by!...........Rick
