“Music is the Best Medicine” (…..a.k.a., “The Soundtrack of My Life”) Track #9: “Beyond” -Leon Bridges

The song “Beyond”, by the self professed “True Texan” Leon Bridges, is an oddity amongst the 250+ songs on my list of songs I want to do covers for… (most of which I’ll never get to, as I enjoy the slow, therapeutic groove of crafting 4-5 songs a year). Why is “Beyond” and oddity unlike […]

“Music is the Best Medicine” (……. a.k.a., “The Soundtrack of My Life”) Track #8: “Heaven Help” -Lenny Kravitz

Okay, can we talk here or what? Specifically, about this internet. Even more specific, most of us dudes have to admit we do a little “cyber-flirting” with chicks, always sending girls our favorite music videos… … to impress, I guess (so much easier than going to a bar to flirt 🙂 ) ……. Hey, it’s […]

Home Cookin’ !!! Sunny Colorful Salads, in a Sunny Colorful Eclectic House, “On the Sunny Side of the Street”, in Maui, Hawaii…

The great thing about when you are addicted to what I call “HGTV Porn” 🙂 , is the house doesn’t have to be exactly your style to like it… I mean, sometimes, I just appreciate someone’s own unique expression of their own style in their home architecture and interior decor. (and I love when people […]

“Music is the Best Medicine” (……. a.k.a., “The Soundtrack of My Life”) Track #7: “Mister Magic” -Grover Washington Jr.

This could be the stupidest analogy ever, as pertains to Jazz Music, but I can always change it later if it starts to sound absurd to me over time…. ….but, the best analogy of the impact of “Mister Magic”, is the likened to the what was called the “Christmas Truce” that took place very early […]

EXPOSED!!! Your Herbal Supplements Might Be a “Sham” ……sigh

Men’s Health: Nutrients for Male Vitality and Well Being (Part 2)

I wanted […]

“The Coconut Oil Conspiracy”: How big business kept this incredibly healthy oil from the masses……

….by convincing people that all saturated fats are bad for you…which is false!!! For thousands of years, coconuts have been a staple of tropical cuisines, and those who followed a traditional coconut-based diet, such as Pacific Islanders, had none of the heart disease, cancer, diabetes, or other illnesses that plague modern America (at least until […]

Men’s Health: Inventor of PSA Prostate Test says he is “ashamed” the test has become a “Profit-Driven Public Health Disaster”

As I said several times in this blog, I predict that 700 years from now, they are going to look back at our medical practices as barbaric, backwards, and primitive, just as we look back on the "bloodletting" and leeches of the medical practices 700 years ago in Medieval times. Richard J. Ablin, the man […]
