It's been a good ride so far!
Since I was just a kid all I have ever wanted to do was to make people laugh or just smile. As a child, an educator sent a note home to my parents. It read; If your son thinks he is going to get through life making people laugh he is in for a RUDE AWAKENING! He is not living up to his potential. WELL, I'M STILL NOT! But at this site you will at least see me try. From the heart, thank you for even being interested, it means the world to me. I always say, I have not a single fan but many a friend!

Absolute Proof That The World Is Being Poisoned
To be quite frank with you, I am still humbled each time you guys send me a message or leave me a comment or post up on face book about how something that I have written has touched you, inspired you are my very favorite, made you stop and think!
As a Comedian, my original intention was to tell you a funny story each day about something that inevitably happens to me virtually every time I leave the house. Worse case scenario is I could pull great stories from my past that I really never got to share with the masses and tell those to friends who weren't there to experience them. We all know that this is not what this blog has become. Each time I decide to write, I have an idea, a moment of inspiration and I turn on the old lap top and start to put my thoughts down. Some how, some way, I never end up writing what it was that I set out to do. This post is the perfect example of that!
For those of you who have a blog you may or may not know that there is a function called stats! When you click on that you can't believe the information that is there. Not only how many times your blog has been viewed, but how many times each post has been viewed and it's broken up from NOW, TODAY, WEEK, MONTH AND ALL TIME. It also shows you how it was viewed by windows, mac, ipad, iphone and on and on. Which browser was used to track you down and view the page and other amazing info. I have to admit that my absolute favorite feature is called Audience. You can view the details exactly the same way, but it tells you where your blog is being viewed. Each day I watch it like a hawk and I get as excited as a pedophile at a Chuck E. Cheese! Because of you guys viewing this blog, re posting it, sharing it with your friends or linking it to your other pages, MY BLOG IS NOW BEING VIEWED IN 56 COUNTRIES around the world! I did have a reader briefly in Iran and I have never heard from her again. She told me how very much she loved it, how she could not wait to see what I would write next and how she longed for the freedom that we have here in America with things as simple as sharing a thought! THEN SHE WAS JUST GONE! Iran was the 57th country!
I am honored and stunned that you fine folks have taken to my writing the way you have and I give you my word that I will keep it coming as honestly and completely uncensored as the day I began this whole blog "thing". For those of you who are new, I'll make this short again. When I began what is now about a little over 5 months ago, I made a deal with myself! I would work hard and work honestly at making the blog a success! The deal was that if in one year's time, I had 20 followers and 1000 page views, I would continue on with the blog. During the third week of March, for 6 days, my page view counter froze and stopped working, by the time it was working again, I lost the page views that are forever lost in the world wide web and you know what? IT MADE ME FUCKING NUTS! I love to do this now! Well just shy of 6 months in, I have exceeded the goal I had set for myself with followers by 5 times + and I have exceeded the goal that I had set for myself with page views by 20 times +! 20,000 page views +, 56 countries and 110 followers and we have only just begun and I owe it all to you guys, my friends. I can't thank you enough for the inspiration that you guys have given to me!
Not only do I thank you, but my wife thanks you as well! Why you ask? Because if it were not for me being worried about letting you guys down by not posting, I would be speaking all of this insanity in my wife's ear instead of poisoning the world with it! So on behalf of my wife's hearing, patience and sanity, I thank you once again. The funny part is that I have written all of this and have yet to scratch the surface of my life, my experiences or my mind! The truly crazy part is that this is "my down time". Idle hands are those of the devil! I have so much life to live, so many great things planned for this upcoming spring and summer and I promise, I won't let you down! So stick with me, share this with your friends and know that I will be eternally grateful to you for taking your precious time to read the insane ramblings of a certified lunatic!
Until we see each other on the road,
Keep the wind in your face,
Tits in your back
and The Man off your ass!
