Daddy’s Back!

Hey Kids!

Sorry that I had vanished without a trace for a time.  It was not my intention to leave you, my treasured readers lonely and afraid, (or something like that).  Things have been insane for me the past several weeks.  Suffice it to say up front, that I am alive and hanging in there no worse for the wear.    I’m still suffering through dancing with the stars.  I have no bloody idea how or why Nancy Grace and Chaz Bono are in the mix.  Gotta be some sort of Faustian pact with teh devil I suppose.

My marathon training got interrupted per doctors orders around week #9.  I’m pretty bummed about it because I was making great improvements.  This Friday I am having some mroe testing done, and hopefully all will be fine, and I can resume training.  I’m guessing I’ll have to back track a few weeks and build back up once again to where I was.  I assure you all that my training is merely postponed, and not cancelled(by God’s grace and mercy!).

I’ll keep you posted on that.

Also, I did have opportunity to begin posting some ‘serious’ articles on

Not sure if you are familiar with that site, but, if you are so inclined, I strongly encourage you to check it out, and look for me….Jeff Grillo!  Woo Hoo!  ( you won’t see any woo hoo’s from me over theree!)

I am pretty much back.  I can’t promise daily articles right away…but, i can promise you that you wont go more than a couple days without a dose of my madness.  Oh…I should also have some good news to post pretty soon.  I have a new radio show that is going to be syndicated on a few internet radio sources.  As soon as I have URL’s and times, I’ll post here so you can check it out.  The show is pretty nutty and funny.  If you remotely enjoy my posts, you will absolutely love the radio ME!

Trying Not to Die

leave a comment »

In case you’ve been paying attention and noticed that I have not posted anything in my ‘My Marathon Training’ category in a while. First off, yes I am still training. I am in week #9 of 26 weeks of training. This should be week #10, but I repeated week #8 in order to get back on track after a week of injury.

I’ve got to admit, I have mixed emotions about my training. It seems to be more and more of dread involved with my runs now that they are getting to be 8 and 9 miles long. Im experiencing more pain. That being said, I am improving in terms of cardiovascular health. I’m on the borderline of being ‘average’ finally! Yes…a big improvement! My weight however has remained about the same which is incredibly surprising m to me. I have definitely made physical changes. My waistline is trimmer for sure. My legs are much more defined. I’m guessing that the weight gains in muscle are offsetting fat loss. But, it is still somewhat disturbing to me.

I’m guessing the #’s on the scale will startt to drop here soon. Gotta believe that my legs are only gonna get so big. Then any additional fat loss should show up then.

Overall, am I glad I’m doing this? Yes. It’s insane all day long, but, I do feel better in some ways. Plus, it will be one big check mark on my bucket list. I just hope i get to check it off, before the training kills me!

Domestic Terrorism…Food for Thought

with 2 comments

Right off the top here, I want to be specific.  This post is not about Islamic Jihad.  I’m strictly talking about terrorism from within our own borders.  This terrorist network lives among us.  They are our neighbors, and we may not even know it.  We often talk, for the past ten years, about the atrocity visited upon our nation when foreign terrorists struck our nation on September 11, 2001.  These people stole nearly 3,000 lives in a one time attack.  The response from our Nation was swift and deliberate.  We have invested hundreds of billions of dollars to combat that evil at its source.  We have sacrificed thousands of brave American lives in the pursuit of justice.  Yet absolutely nothing is done about a form of legal domestic terrorism that murders nearly 1,000 people every single day.  In fact, not only are we not fighting this domestic terrorism, our Federal Government and State Governments are paying for it.  Shoot, they are even prosecuting those who would stand against it.

According to Federal statistics, Planned Parenthood committed over 330,000 abortions last year alone.  That is a rate of nearly 1,000 people a day that are killed in what should be the safety of their mothers womb.  Maybe the numers are too big to grasp, so I’ve decided to break it down in a way most people can understand.

Imagine Sunday afternoon.  The Dallas Cowboys are playing in a packed house.  Their stadium holds 80,000 fans.  Now imagine that stadium filled to capacity more than 3 1/2 times over.  What if a terrorist of foreign origin successfully detonated a bomb that in an instant wiped out all those people?  You see how it eclipses 9/11 by more than 100 times.  Yet we do nothing.

Her in Charlotte, North Carolina, our dismal Carolina Panthers play in Bank of America stadium.  This stadium, if it were ever to be packed, holds about 73,000 fans.  It would take almost 5 capacity crowds slaughtered to equal what Planned Parenthood murders in a single year.

Not a football fan?  Let me break it down in terms of other sports for this to hit home.  Don’t coward out on me…stick with this.  Laker fans, when they go for an NBA game at the Staples center in LA hear this.  That arena only holds a little over 18,000 fans.  That would take nearly 18 full capacity crowds to be executed in order to equal the number of babies that are mutilated each year.

Hockey fan?  My Boston Bruins play at the Fleet Center in Boston.  Capacity there is about the same as the Staples center.  Do you understand the magnitude of this atrocity?

Quit looking at ultrasound images and think of stadiums full of people.  What is being killed isn’t a fuzzy image on a computer screen.  It is a person, created by God.  A person that one day would grow up to be a person in one of those seats.  A person with a job, home, that gives to charity, that loves, that contribuetes to society and the economy, that has family and is deserving of the right to exist just as each person we’ve already looked at.

You and I, as taxpayers are funding the murder that on an annual basis is 100 times worse than 9/11.  We’re doing it every year.  We are doing nothing to stop it.  Call on your local Congressional and Senate leaders to stop funding abortions with yourm oney now!  All it takes for evil men to succeed, is for good men to do nothing.

Now I’ve Heard Everything

leave a comment »

I was planning on blogging about all the hullabaloo over class warfare.  But after catching a short sound byte on FOX News I decided I had to put class warfare for another day, and touch on this atrocity Ithat just came to my attention.  Stick with me, this will be short…I’ve gotta go grab cup of coffee #3 for the morning.  I’m almost awake!

Alright, I’m missing some of the details such as; names of those involved and the exact name of the law involved…and like I said, I’m in a hurry to go get my java, so no time to play with the DVR.  But, you’ll get the point alright.  So, the story goes like this.  A Canadian woman is suing her 2 adult children.  She is suing under Canadian law called, something like, the parental support act.  First you need to know that the mom in question abandoned her children when they were only 15 years old, and has not seen her kids since that time.  Under the law, she is suing her children for parental support to the tune of $750 per month.  I guess the point of the law is to have children be responsible and take care of aging parents who need help.  Naturally the kids doth protest.  Citing the fact they were abandoned and have had no relationship with her for decades.  The jury is still out.

Does Canada recognize ‘mother of the year?’  If not, here’s your opportunity!  Look, I grew up in New England, and I understand how stinkin’ crazy cold it gets in the winter.  I also understand SAD, (seasonal affective disorder).  You know the disorder that gets people all nutty and depressed because of the lack of light and sunny days.  Gets people all sad and moddy and stuff.  But come on!  Seriously Canada?  I think of Canadians as Americas weird, awkward uncle.  Aside from oil, hockey players and Nickelback…they don’t really have a whole lot going on.  Is this just a desperate cry for attention O Canada?  Stop the madness!  The fact that this is even a consideration under the law…to hold people responsible for parents who were NOT responsible is ridiculous!  Have members of US 9th circuit court of appeals infiltrated your justice system?  I thought we (they) had the market cornered on crazy…but you have surprised me.

To the mom…you’re sick, nuts, sad and pathetic.  Welcome to the Biblical principle of ‘you reap what you sow.’  It’s one thing if your kids choose to forgive you, and have pity on you and decide on their own free will to help you out.  But for you to have the gaul to feel entitled enough to sue in court to force the very people you refused to love and nurture in favor of neglect, reject and abandon. ..and now you want them to care for you?  WOW!

I sincerely hope that the Canadian courts rule in favor of your kids and leave you to fend for yourself.  First , so you can enjoy the harvest that you are due.  Also, while you suffer and live in poverty for the remainder of your days…hopefully you will think long and hard about the error of your ways.  Maybe you might actually be sorry for what you’ve done.  Who knows, maybe even a little repentance may come out of it.  In the long run, if that’s the case…you just might appreciate the decision of the courts to leave hanging out to dry.

In any case people, let this be a lesson to you.  Be good parents.  Love your children.  Care for them.  It’s not only the right thing to do, it just may come back to you later in life.  Parents sometimes do indeed need their children to take care of them.

48 Hours Left!

leave a comment »

I’m a little concerned over the news that NASA has been reporting that a now defunct satellite should crash to earth sometime in the next 48 hours.  The news is reporting that this some 3,000 pound satellite, about the size of a small bus, is tumbling out of orbit and should make impact in the next two days.  They are telling us that they expect much of the satellite to burn up during re-entry to our atmosphere.  They can even tell us that they expect about 26 pieces, the largest of which could weigh upwards of 250 pounds.  They are telling us not to worry, even though they essentially have no idea where its going to land, that we have approximately a 1 in 3,000 chance of getting hit by debris.

This is making me quite uneasy for a few reasons.  First off, a 1 in 3,000 chance?  I think we only have a 1 in 10,000 chance of getting bit by a shark.  Our chances of getting hit by lightning, a car and avarious other ways to die are smaller than getting hit by this satellite?  Either the NASA engineers math skills have seriously declined since the end of the shuttle program, or they are expecting some potentially populated areas to get nailed!  I mean, by their numbers i have a 1,000 times greater chance of getting hit by flying debris than I do of hitting the Lotto tonight?  wow!  I hear FEMA is ready with a plan.  Oh good…FEMA to the rescue, we have nothing to worry about now.

Also, our Defense Department has software that is ‘tracking’ the satellite, and apprantly within 15 minutes of re-entry, they still can’t tell us where it’s going to land.  OMG!  Do we need to tell the Russians, Chinese, N. Koreans and Iranians that we can’t track something…oh say the size of a missile entering our airspace?  Holy Crap people!  Who the heck is running these….an incompetent 1 term senator with no real leadership or business experience?  Come on!

I’m not worried personally about getting injured from debris.  I’m just worried that apparantly we don’t have our act together enough to at least know when something as large as a bus is entering our airspace.  Call me crazy, but that’s a problem!

The New ‘Dancing’ Debut

leave a comment »

Hey, how about Han Solo’s daughter?  Wasn’t she great?  Little Hope Solo is all grown up now and goalie for the US Women’s Soccer Team, and did a rather nice Waltz on her Dancing with the Stars Debut.  Now, my eyes aren’t what they ought to be, but from what I hear she’s not bad in the face, and has a set of abs you can crack a walnut on.  Impressive.  Scary, but impressive.  I dunno, there’s something about a woman who can kick my butt that I find freakishly interesting.  My wife was into kickboxing when I met her, and made it plain early on I better stay in line.

Then, what the heck was up with Carson Cressley?  Mr., or is it Miss Queer Eye for the Straight guy?  I’m a real man, and never watched that freakshow, but I have heard about it.  Getting to witness all that is light in the loafers last night from the safety of my couch was actually somewhat amusing.  I don’t get it, but thee was some entertainment value I suppose.  Seriously though, what is it with gay guys acting so weird and flamboyant?  If they are men with some weird female gene thing shouldnt they be more like women?  In addition to the sexual deviant nature of the whole thing…shouldn’t they just be all about shopping and make up?  Where the heck does the glitter thing come into play?  In my circle of contacts, I don’t see women acting like that nut?!  Well, I guess I should thank Carson…afterall if it wasn’t for fruit loops like him, I probably would have gotten beat up a lot more in high school.  Thankfully we had some gay folk that occupied the time of the bullies!  lol

Chaz…dear Chaz.  What were you thinking?  Ok, I get it, you’re gay.  Born a woman, attracted to women, sure.  Maybe the whole sex change thing is a way you justify your attraction to women.  I almost get it.  But if you are going to go through the pain, shame, scrutiny and public gawkers to undergo this transformation…why not go through just a tinsy winsy bit more pain and work out a few times?  Ok class, here’s your bonus question:  What’s worse than being a trangender individual?  Right!  Being a FAT, transgender individual.  OMG!  Chaz, my man…(and I use the term loosely), let’s use this public embarassment as a vault to a new, leaner, meaner you.  From what my wife says, your lady friend in the audience was actually fairly normal looking.  I’m not saying you need to go all Hope Solo on the abs, but geesh!  Put down the cupcakes!

By the way…I hear that when Bruno Tolioli gave his score to Chaz…what we actually saw was edited in.  What really happened was his usual flip out and then he gave Chaz his number.  No, not the score….his actual number!

How many more weeks of this crap do I have to endure?

The Buffet Tax Confusion…Let Me Clarify!

leave a comment »

My first reaction when I read about the new proposed Buffet tax by Obama, was one of horror!  Oh the humanity, I cried!  I know the President keeps harping on the ‘fat cats’ in Washington, but, now he’s going after the ‘fat cats’ nationwide!  Shoot man, why not just call it what it is…the FAT TAX?  After droning on for a few minutes to my wife, she pointed out that it was not a tax on buffets, but the ‘Buffet Tax,’ as in , Warren Buffet the Billionaire.

Apparently, I had lost something in the translation.  But, wow!  What a relief to know that I can still belly up to the salad bar…oh who am I kidding?  I can still belly up to the all you can eat monster China, or as I like to call it, the Godzilla sized China Buffet!  I mean who can resist mountains of fried rice, chicken lo mein, and egg rolls…oh my!  What about the crab rangoon, sweet & sour chicken, those little mystery pork ball thingys, and Chinese BBQ wings?!  What the heck is it with Chinese buffets by the way…their desert bars are always the same.  Jello, pudding, some sugary fried dough crap and soft serve vanilla ice cream.  Seriously…why no authentic Chinese deserts?  Hmmm, on second thought maybe that’s why you don’t see fat Chinese people.  Hey Liu Kang would it kill you to put a brownie ou there.  Us fat Americans like those little chocolate squares cut straight from the fabric of heaven, ya know.

But I digress…

Ok, so I made an honest mistake.  Tell me there aren’t people in South Florida right now freakin’ out that their iTunes downloads of Margaritaville, and Fins are about to get taxed up the wazoo!

I’m just saying that the media should quit being so darned lazy.  All they hd to do is call it the WARREN BUFFET TAX, and that would have cleared up the confusion it caused dumb Americans, such as myself.  Well, not so much that we’re dumb…as much as…..squirrel!

As for the tax… what am I, an economist?  All I can say is stop taxing the people we want to invest in creating jobs.  Maybe if they have a little more, they will spread it around.  Maybe, maybe not.  I just hope someday i am one of the 230,000 Americans that make over $1 Million a year.  I’d like to try that once….or twice!
