My only regret is that I wish I had started to “blog” earlier in my life.  As I am only at “Day 6️⃣6️⃣,” I am adding one word to every blog post that I write, and I write a post each day.  Eventually, as the “laws of physics” will dictate, I will “transition” my blogging pursuits from a part time basis to a full time endeavor.


I want to thank all those who read and like my blog posts. I can not list all of you by name just now, as I may miss a few names. Rest assured, I will list all of you in a few months when I write blog posts of over a hundred words. Only on day 6️⃣5️⃣, so conservation of words is of paramount importance.


This experimental blog is not sufficient to comment on all the news that is going on in the United States. But in a few months my blog posts will be long enough to comment fully and sufficiently on the events of the day. Till then, I will comment “Twitter Style,” making my posts short, clear, and crisp. In closing, Trump is in big 💩.

🇺🇸 Colin Powell ☆☆☆☆ 🇺🇸

Prayers and thoughts to the Powell family with the loss of the former National Security Advisor, Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff, first Black United States Secretary of State, Four Star General, Recipient of the Presidential Award of Freedom TWICE, Harlem born, South Bronx bred, City College of New York alum, ROTC trained, geology major, Colin Luther Powell has met the Lord. We will miss a great American, and a proud member of the “Moderate Generation.” Son of Jamaican immigrants, spoke Yiddish. God Bless the Powells. God Bless America.


I’m not going to give you any personal “advice.” Ya see, the blog that you are reading is a “personal blog,” not a “personal advice column.” But I have no compunction of giving advice to me, without fear or reservation. I could give advice to myself; if I was smart enough to take it. My advice to myself would be… {Sorry, times up}.


I consider this an “experimental blog” for a number on number of levels. The way this blog is designed I increase the length of my blog posts by one word each time I post. I post every day. I can write about virtually any topic I choose. Who knows… I might go “all out,” and write a poem. That would be amazing❗


This is “Day 6️⃣1️⃣” of my blogging adventure. This post is 6️⃣1️⃣ words long. My next blog post, which will be “published” tomarrow, will be 6️⃣2️⃣ words long. The post after that one will be 6️⃣3️⃣ words long. Every day I add a word to my blog posts. In one year, I would expect the post would be 3️⃣6️⃣5️⃣ words long.

Day LX

A reminder to tell you what this “blog” is about. While I’ve been “blogging” on and off for about ten to twelve years, I really haven’t been “regular,” or “consistent” about the practice of writing and posting a blog post every day. This is an “experimental blog” that increases in the length of every post by one word each day.


Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving made a twenty minute long Instagram Live video “explaining” his decision not to get vaccinated. Because Mr. Irving will not get vacinated, he will not be able to play or practice for the Brooklyn Nets. He will be paid 💲1️⃣8️⃣,0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣,0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣.0️⃣0️⃣; his salary for the away games.

I would like to have this arrangement.


Donald Trump uses the rhetorical devise of  “glittering generalties.”  Some of the terms he uses include “radical left,” “massive fraud,” “fake news,” “Constitution,” and “stolen election.”  Trump throws out these generalties without providing actual evidence or any convincing logical argument.  Trump’s loyal supporters are not interested in pursuit of the truth or a vigorous investigation of the facts.
