I saw these "Man Rules" posted on Facebook.

Thought I'd share some of them with you ... The author is a brave man.

Notice that all the rules are numbered #1 (Of course!)

1. Men are not mind readers.

1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

1.  Ask for what you want. Let's be clear on this one:
- Subtle hints do not work.
- Strong hints do not work.
- Obvious hints do not work.
- Just say it.

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days.

1. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.

1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways an…

Cool Media Coverage

I don't know about you but, personally, I just love the media coverage of Justin Bieber.

Let's face it ... doesn't he deserves to appear on the front page of the Tampa Bay Times after getting arrested early Thursday morning? Do you know ANY other 19 year old who would drive drunk and race through their neighborhoods? And his charming personality ... there's a cute picture of him waving to his 13 year old fans when he was released sitting atop his car.

Those who blame the media for covering stories like this should be ashamed of themselves. The media has a responsibility ... to their shareholders. They know how much the general public wants to hear about Justin. I was watching CNN and they were covering some boring story about terrorist attacks in Russia when they broke the story about Bieber. Thank heavens.

I was getting depressed thinking that nothing relevant was happening around the world since Miley Cyrus twerked and did that really cool thing with her tongue and …

Movie Daze

We've been going to the movies a lot lately.

Here are my top three:

1. American Hustle. Great movie! Incredible script and fantastic acting all the way around. Story: It's "a fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation." American Hustle tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale ... who looks the part of a fat balding Jewish guy who has the worst toupee you've ever seen), who along with his equally cunning and seductive partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams ... fake British accent and all) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper ... who looks and acts the part of a dumb agent). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that's as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving's unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jenni…

The Year In Review

Happy 2014!

My 2013 year in review was definitely a mix of the bad and the beautiful.
It started with a bang in February.

Deb and I travelled to LA and went to the Grammy Awards. We spent too much money on an auction item to get there ... but had a great time when we got there.

Nikki got married in February.

She and Steven Cohen tied the knot in Charleston at a beautiful old Plantation in front of friends and family.

Picture perfect ... it was a great beginning for her new life in Savannah.

I won an Emmy.

Actually, the award was presented in December of 2012 but delivered in March. It was for an animated video, Chicken Named Mac that was part of a series that Mike Sexton and I wrote and Kevin Riley produced. It was shown on this year's CMN Telethon.

Dr. Momberg-Cohen finished her residency at Memorial Hospital in June in Savannah. She took her boards and signed on with an Internal Medicine group.

My schwannoma neurosurgical procedure happened on July 15 at TGH. It turned out to…
