Working Stiffs Need A Break Sometime
Over the last two weeks, I've worked 32 hours overtime. I'm looking forward to two weeks off where I can relax a little and sleep in.

Deep Throat Revealed. Who Is Next?
After three decades, the mystery man/whistleblower/rat behind "The Watergate Coverups" is revealed.

Thirty years is a long time to keep a secret. Nice job Woodward and Bernstein.

The second biggest mysterious being on the planet has to be "Deep Monk" from Hotel California. Where is he hiding and who is he anyway? The clues are there, but can you put them together?

Play Review: The Tempest
If you ever visit Canada, make sure you see a Shakespearean play in Stratford Ontario. Over the years, I've seen Richard the Third, Henry The Fourth-Part One, Macbeth, Hamlet and finally the Tempest starring the great stage actor, William Hutt, as Prospero.

The play is full of magic and spiritual highjinks.

Mr. Hutt gave a multi-dimensional performance, at times cruel and violent, but also forgiving, loving and very poetic.

The play, however, lacks a major adversary to Mr. Hutt's mighty magician and therefore suffers because of it. Three stars.

Living On The Edge
Mood:  hungry
When my wife was laid off three weeks ago, it was a setback for both of us. Our routines changed. Our comfort level decreased.

However, our belief in each other never changed. While sending out tons of resumes in all directions, we are also looking into a home-based business where my wife can use all of her skills.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Sometimes, you have to depend on your own street smarts and experience to get by.

Victories in life often go to the hungriest teams.

Ken Jennings Falls And Carrie Underwood Ascends
Mood:  cool
On Jeopardy, it was obvious that Ken Jennings just wasn't with it. He was slow on the draw for most of the questions. Having won over 2 million last year, he had a very large comfort zone. Brad, the guy who won, definitely wanted it more than him.

On American Idol, country pop triumphed over rockin' blues. Carrie was also the best singer of the class of 2005.

It's hard to beat good voice, terrific looks, and good ole' country music in the Heartland of America.

Momma Mia Closes In Toronto
Mood:  sad
After five years and 2.8 million attendees, Momma Mia finally closed last night. I saw the musical twice and it certainly was more than "Abba's Greatest Hits". The story and the characters were both moving and funny.

I've seen many musicals in Toronto including "Phantom Of The Opera" and "Joseph And His Technicolor Dreamcoat", but Mamma Mia was more fun.

As far as I know, it's still playing in New York with the original cast.

Movie Review 93: Clarence
This is an episode that never made it to "The Touched By An Angel Series."

Klutzy angel, Clarence Oddbody, from "It's A Wonderful Life" goofs everything up in trying to help a dysfunctional family. However, he stills succeeds anyway which makes for a real feel good movie.

Some good laughs along the way, but the material is predictable. Two and half stars.
Not Too Many Reviews On This One

A New Barron Crusade
Mood:  on fire
Over the last few days, I've been sending out lots of my wife's resumes to prospective employers.

Times are tough when you get laid off, but she can count on my support along with my noble friends, Mr. Computer and Mr. Internet.

Too often, we take steady positions for granted, but not anymore. This crusade starts at home and it'll end when my wife gets a job that she deserves.

New Age Religion Of The Week: Mega Mythology
Created in 2003 by the chinese messiah Daniel Poon, Mega-Mythology's principles were first outlined in the self-help paperback called "YIN AND YANG MADE VERY EASY.":The New Dream Of Modern Mental Imagination.

Mega-Mythology's central belief, that any imaginary construct can be incorporated into the church's ever-growing set of official doctrines, continues to gain popularity. Believers in Santa Claus, his elves, or the Tooth Fairy are permitted—even encouraged—to view them as deities. Even corporate mascots like Kool-Aid Man and Davey Cricket are valid objects of mega mythological consideration.

"My personal savior is Batman," said Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Greg Jurgenson. "My wife chooses to follow the teachings of the Gilmore Girls. Of course, we are still beginners. Some advanced-level Mega-Mythologists have total knowledge of every lifetime they have ever lived for the last 15 million years."

Joke Of The Week: Nuclear Power
Mood:  quizzical
Two strangers were seated next to each other on the
plane when the first guy turned to the second and
said, "Let's talk. I've heard that flights will go
quicker if you strike up a conversation with your
fellow passenger." The second guy, who had just opened his book, closed it slowly, took off his glasses and said to the first guy, "What would you like to discuss?" "Oh, I don't know," said the first guy. "How about nuclear power?" "OK," said the second guy. "That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first. "A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat grass. The same stuff. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?" "Jeez," said the first guy. "I have no idea." "Well, then," said the second guy,
"How is it that you feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don't know
shit?"
