If you take away the toys and flash that is Christmas, you’re left with moments of time as memories wrapped up like presents in your mind. What are a few of your favorite memories as a child at Christmas that doesn’t involve gifts? I'll tell you a few of mine.
September is month of emotion, it is memories of the first days and weeks back at school and weather changing. It’s the end of carefree summer fun (applicable if you’re a kid or teacher), it’s a time when we start looking towards colder weather and Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
It's back to school time. Well okay, there are a few weeks of summer left, but this being a ‘Throwback Thursday’ I thought I’d reminisce about going back to school in the 80s.
A Happy Birthday and 'Throwback Thursday' story in one. Happy Birthday, Alex to what would have been your 41st. You were taken way too young, at the age of 31 back in September of 2004. I remember the summers in Rhode Island us hanging out and causing mayhem in the quiet village of Wickford in North Kingston, RI.
This being a ‘Throwback Thursday’ I thought I'd bring up songs that bring a person back. What are some of the songs that take you back to a simpler time? For me it’s not always the songs that I really liked in their day it’s sometimes the ones that actually I disliked.

Here we are again, similar to how things were in that 2nd week of January back in 1998. This ice storm isn’t quite the monster that the ‘Ice Storm in ’98’ was but it’s hitting some just as hard. Pockets of the state are out of power now, and I’m sure the numbers will rise before they start falling.
Looks like a crappy headline but there was no better way to put it. So many people re-share or copy and paste posts on Facebook that encourage others to do the same that it gets sickening. I like my posts to be original or shares of things I'm interested in or things that are cool. But, for the first time in my 3+ years of Facebooking, I shared something that asked me to because it touched my h
This being Valentine’s Day and being a lover of power ballads and slow songs in general, I thought I’d give you a list of my favorite slow songs and why. There are songs that bring you back when you hear them, and some maybe you didn’t realize how much they meant to you until you hear them again literally 20-30 years later.
My Mom, Aunts and Uncles are all heading to California because of my grandmother’s health. She is 96 and day-to-day. I refuse to be down because she was always happy. Never a sad moment during my very limited time with her. I remember my trips to California visiting my grandparents as a kid and teen. I went in 1979, 1982 and 1986.
