Day 3422: Gun Control

When I was visiting my friend Maria last week, I showed her “Gun Control” by Australian comedian Jim Jefferies.

Yesterday, after ANOTHER mass shooting of children at an American elementary school, I shared “Gun Control” on Twitter.

Because I can’t (nor do I want to) control my rage and grief at the insane and criminal lack of gun control in the USA, these are the images I choose to share today.

On National Missing Children’s Day, all I can think about is the horrible number of children who are missing in our nation because of the greed and corruption of our so-called lawmakers.

Steve Kerr, the coach of the Golden State Warriors basketball team, did not control his feelings yesterday about the state of gun control in our nation.

I have to believe that people in the USA will finally say “ENOUGH!” to this madness and enact gun control.

Thank you for reading this “gun control” blog post, here and now.

Day 1461: Great

Great!  It’s time for me to write a great blog post on the final great day of 2016.

I have this great tradition, every New Year’s Eve, of listing the 10 greatest things AND the 10 least great things that happened all year.

My son, Aaron (who tops my great list), recently said to me, “I’m sure the worst thing that happened to you last year was your open heart surgery.”  My great answer? “No, it wasn’t.”

Any great guesses about what tops my worst list for 2016?  I hope you know that any comment you leave would be great.

Yesterday,  the great staff at cardiac rehab gave me this:


See that Arm Ergo exercise on that great card?  I felt great about telling the great cardiac rehab staff that  I didn’t want to do that yesterday, since that great new exercise had caused some great pain to return last weekend.  The staff said, “That’s great!  Pain just means your muscles are waking up!”

Cardiac rehab:  Making pain great again.

Are any of my other photos from yesterday great?

























One of my top 10 great memories from 2016 was watching this great Jim Jefferies routine with my great friend Maria two weeks after my open heart surgery:

It was great to see Jim Jefferies with my great son last night at the Wilbur Theater in the great city of Boston (where they recorded his great gun control routine two years ago).

Two of my pictures, above, are inspiring me to share this great song in this end of year post:


In conclusion, thanks to my great readers for supporting me throughout 2016. I have high hopes that we will have more to celebrate in the future.

Day 1261: Sounds

When the sounds of murderous gunfire ring out on American soil, I listen, again, to the sounds  of Australian-born comedian Jim Jefferies and his monologue on gun control:

While the sounds of that comedy routine (recorded in my sound  hometown of Boston and now sounding on Youtube here and here) include many obscenities, I passionately believe that the assaulting sound of gunfire is much more obscene than the sound reasoning I hear there.

Here are over seven minutes of  important sounds about the 49 people killed in Orlando on Sunday.


As always, I yearn for the sound of your voices, in comments below.

I hope you can hear the sound of love, in my heart, for you all.
