Never Look Into Another Mans Pockets
One of the best lessons I ever learned was from a guy who is doing 5 to 10 years in federal prison for stealing from his friends and business partners. But, alas, he did give me good advice. “Never look into another mans pockets.” In other words, never feel jealousy over a person that is better at negotiating than you. Never hate a person for making more than you. Also, never cover another’s success with your jealous poison.
Happy Mother’s Day 2019
To all the mom’s who are having a positive impact on their children’s lives. You set the example. There is nothing bigger in the world you will do than being a mother and shaping the lives of your kids.
The Worst Tinder Date Ever
By popular demand, more Tinder stories. This is by far the weirdest and craziest online dating experience I have ever had. It’s super out there. This is NSFW, so beware. Also, if you are easily offended, please be careful with this one.
Being 50 is so strange. There are times when I feel like I am still trying to figure out what I want to do with my life. There are times when I feel like I am 25 with the world is still in front of me. Then, I look in the mirror and the lines on my face and the extra weight around my waist tell me the truth. I am now headed out of the woods. I am on the latter part of my life. I feel like I left so much on the table. I feel like, well, is this it? Is this all there is?
Then, I look at my 3 daughters and realize that I have already accomplished all of my dreams. I am a father and there is nothing better. My goal is to be here as long as they need me. To be a father as long as possible. I am actually living the dream.
Yeah, it’s a melodramatic post. But, it’s my reality and I love it. Is there anything better than being a mother or a father, I think not. I am still fighting for goals, making records, playing shows, writing and fighting to be better. But the dream, my ultimate goal, that was accomplished the day I became a father.
Celebrating the life of the great Eddie Tigner
I am so glad I got to spend time with this amazing man. Eddie did a lot in his life, one he never stopped living. Longtime Atlanta-based pianist, vocalist, and Atlanta blues and jazz mainstay Eddie Tigner has died. Tigner was born in Macon, Georgia in 1926, and raised in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky. On August […]
My Birth Daughter found me on FaceBook
One of the greatest moments of my life was when my Birth Daughter, Erika Rowell, found me on Facebook. It was a day 24 years in the making. Erika joins me on my podcast to tell our story. It’s a story with a remarkable beginning, middle and end. She has been in my life for 9 years now, and it has been a wonderful experience. She, as you will see, is a complete joy.
Don’t let depression isolate you
I have dealt with depression my whole life and the last few months have been particularly rough. Maybe it’s what I went thru with my daughter this summer that’s finally taking it’s toll. Maybe it’s the after effects of the breakup with my long time girlfriend. Maybe it’s just the fact that my chemical makeup […]
If I meet you for a date and you don’t look anything like your pic, you’re buying drinks for me until you do.
I might not be the best looking, or in the best shape, or the richest, I totally forgot where I was going with this! Anyway, happy Monday!
A Most Trying Year
Well, this has been my most trying year as a father. So many times I felt like I had failed. I’ve always said, parenting is about consistency. 1 – Consistently being a good role model. I have 3 daughters, so my challenge is to treat them they way I want their husbands to treat them…that […]

- God Shuffled His Feet – Crash Test Dummies
If I Wore A Red Maga Hat
If I wore a red MAGA hat, would you hate me? If I told you that I voted for Hillary and thought Trump was an illegitimate president, would you block or unfriend me? If I was steadfast Pro-Life, would you wish me dead? What if I was gay, would you see me different, so different […]
Since there are more Chinese people than any other race on Earth, does that mean they have normal eyes and we have big crazy googly ones?
