*We are still over 3 months away from football season, or should we say that the Super Bowl was about 4 months ago. Either way, enjoy “Broadway” Joe’s vegetarian party.

You could always find Broadway Joe with a glass of vodka, Crown on the rocks, or a bottle of beer in his hand. The hand not filled with booze was usually filled with an attractive young lady.

*Wash down all of that healthy food with a vodka, Crown on the rocks, or a bottle of Rolling Rock

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
