‘Nikita: A Tale of the Ring and Redemption’: A Book Review

February 20, 2017

  It is no secret that I am a “Rasslin’ fan.  Not this Sports Entertainment that is on TV these days.  I am talking Wrestling from the 70s, 80s, 90s and I will even say to the early 2000s.  I have written a prior article last year with my thoughts on this business.  I have […]

Pigeon Forge 2016….Hot Tubs…Fun…And Food!

January 10, 2017

I recently went to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg the last week of December for my yearly vacation.  I am glad to say that the area is recovering from the fires that roared throughout the region a couple of months ago.  Of course, the rebuild is slow, but people were in good spirits and construction was coming along.

R.I.P.: 2016

January 3, 2017

The year 2016 is over.  Some say it was a good year, some say it was a bad year.    Either way, we lost several Celebrities, Athletes, Entertainers, and some people that shaped the world today.  It is always sad to loose someone.  It seems like 2016 had it share more than usual.  Below is a […]
