Though it had been there for years I didn't discover the Cafe Vico until I celebrated my 19th Leap Year in 2012 when I had a list of restaurants that I hadn't eaten in and wanted to visit. I reviewed it back then for yelp giving it 5 stars.
This past June I got an email that the Cafe Vico…Continue

In "12 Years A Slave" there is a scene between Platt/Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Patsy (Lupita Nyong'o that is startling, stark and will have your emotions all over the place. It is one of the very few scenes that delivers all the hype that the movie has promised. All in all I found the movie very…Continue

There is a distinct difference between cross dressers, drag queens and the neighbors who put a lamp shade on their head for Halloween. And neither catagory necessarily means the person is gay or has a sexual identity problem. I don't profess to be an expert on any of these subjects though I have…Continue

I may not be gay because;
1. I like women
2. I don't want to be a woman.
3. I hate housework.
4. I am lousy at decorating.
5. Drag queens turn me off.
6. I don't care what the latest fashions are.
7. I can't lip sync
8. I don't work out 90 hours a week.

. For those who don't know it I was a professional server for 38 years and LOVED it or as my book was titled "I Love My Job Except For The Customers!"

Customer: "make sure the soup is hot."
Server: "No, I will purposely serve it cold so I can run back and forth from the kitchen.' Or "Should I stick my finger in it to make…

“The Counselor” has so many stars that as each frame comes into view you start wondering who is going to show up! Along with that you have Oscar winners and Oscar nominees which almost guarantees that there will be some fine acting and you get just that from Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz,…Continue

Turns out that my carotid artery is blocked--I have 3 choices:
1) Carotid endarterectomy which is an operation to peel away the plaque with a scalpel--surgical dangers are stroke, bleeding, infection and a slight possibility of death.
2) Angioplasty where a soft narrow tube is inserted into the…Continue
Memories are a funny thing. I moved to Memphis in October, 1969 and for 2-3 years I lived at the Hamlet apartments which was on East Popular Avenue which turned into Poplar Pike Extended. I only remember 3-4 incidents associated with that apartment but they are for another blog.

It's no secret that these days I take a camera wherever I go so I am sort of surprised that for the 10 years I lived in Memphis I took very few pictures outdoors--in fact I don't even have a picture of the new, white, 1970 Cadillac convertible that the business bought for me in 1969!
I've gone through…Continue

Richard LeMay, as director and writer of “Naked As We Came”, brings nothing to the genre except a bunch of cliches and many nature ‘artistic’ shots. He has added a political plot that only muddies the story leaving more than one viewer with questions.
We have two adult children, Elliot (Ryan Vigilant) and…Continue
