Ask Me How I’m Feeling: Bentley Flying Spur

‘New Bentley Flying Spur Premiere, O’Gara Coach Company, Beverly Hills “So, how long have you been into cars?” I get this question a lot at car events, and I’m still working on my answer: “Well, I’ve been in this car for about two minutes.” The truth is, I’ve never been “into” cars. I often mistake […]

YOU CAN FRIGGIN’ DO IT

That project you have been eschewing? You can do it. Online dating? You can do it. Cooking healthy food for yourself? You can do it! You are the captain of the S.S. Your Life. You are literate (if you’ve gotten this far), and capable, and — let’s not forget — a person who passed 8th […]

And I can say, without a doubt, that redheads are the MOST discriminated against, by far. This […]

Super Bowl XLVII
