Author Archives: What A Smell

I have worked in many jobs: Ambulance Aide, Drycleaner, Theater Projectionist, Top 40 Radio DJ (back when it was fun and meant something), Delivery Driver, Usher at Memorial Stadium in Baltimore, & Restaurant Department Manager, and worked as an extra in 2 major movies, just to name a few. I grew up close to the Delaware and Maryland Eastern Shore, and watched the area change dramatically over the years. I spent many hours at Memorial Stadium watching the Orioles and better yet the Baltimore Colts. I may never get over the Indy move! Imagine all those great memories, all that knowledge and experience, as well as numerous educated opinions in one big head. It stirs up many thoughts on a wide range of subjects. You’ll just have to see for yourself.

Voting at the polls

I can only assume, it must be this way at many polling places.  Recently, the Delmar, Delaware school district held a school board election.  As elections go, this was a rather boring election, even though the new blood won (out of the 2 candidates) , when it was over.  Here’s what I experienced..  The polling […]

Yes, it matters what they say.

As a former broadcaster, it’s easy to pick up things said on TV and radio that I find extremely irritating.  20 or 30 years ago, I would brag about Baltimore’s TV stations.  I worked all over the country and rarely would I find a local TV market as sharp as that in Baltimore.  Sure, there’s […]

Aint He Cute?

As a public service, I’m taking a break from my routine and Howard has put down his dustpan for a few minutes to help with a lost dog announcement. A relatively small, older dog has lost his way and taken up residence at the Delmar High School. He’s possibly a terrier / poodle mix, about […]

Eat this…

Now, that used to be a popular phrase in High School.  Eating is a hobby of mine.  I’ve evidently been successful at it seeing that to accurately determine my weight, I have to go out to the highway, and get in line with the trucks. Like most folks, I don’t want the First Lady dictating […]

Just Another Shopper

Another from Fox News today…  They showed an angry black woman charging through a liquor store.  As she passed, she stuck her arm in the shelving and swept bottles all over the floor.  Many were breaking and crashing.  She went through several rows, snowplowing the store’s stock to the ground and basically, wrecking the store.  She […]

Not The R Word Again

From Fox News today…  They showed where a theater was showing a Tyler Perry movie.  In case you didn’t know, Tyler Perry is a very popular, dirty mouthed, black comedian.   He’s not popular with me because I resent profanity, rest room humor.  Supposedly, at the start of the movie, there was an abnormally large number […]

Joe Biden Loozah!

Can this guy not take a hint?  Evidently NOT.   There was a major movement afoot to name a school after the boneheaded Senator / Vice President.   I believe it was in the Brandywine area of Delaware.  A group of tail kissing Dems wanted to name it “Joe Biden or Biden Elementary School”..  Thanks to the […]

What Would You Do?

This is a touchy subject, but it’s time to give it a good feel.  Last night ABC ran a special “What Would You Do?”  The preface looked easy enough.  However, I think there was an undertone of ABC trying to push more Political Correctness crap on the public.  To do this, they made the viewer […]

Another Stuperbowl

Isn’t it amazing, in less than 50 years our country developed another cultural holiday.  Superbowl Sundays are cause for more TV viewers (worldwide) than any other time around the year.  This includes “Rhoda’s Wedding” (just kidding).   The actual game has become almost secondary to all the partying, food, restaurants, and private events that dance around the […]

Sitting and Waiting

Everyone was shocked this weekend when a goofball in Arizona went on a shooting rampage.  When I first heard about it, I was waiting to hear how Obama, Pelosi, or some other Lib was going to blame George Bush.  unbelievably, to my knowledge, that hasn’t happened yet. Second thought was  at least we’ll hear some […]
