My Long Jeopardy Nightmare Continues

Today we get another fun guest article by Dan McNeil

In my years-long quest to prove I’m at least as smart as the guy who comes in third on Jeopardy, I once again took the annual online test to compete on the show.

Typically you just have to be lucky enough to get several questions in your areas of expertise.

In my case, that’s 20th century history, college football, and all the naked scenes from “Game of Thrones”. Continue reading

A Tribute to Craig Mitchell Dix

By Bob Anderson
(This story is a reprint from the book Sarge, What Now?)

A long time ago, a kid left Livonia, Michigan. He went to war. He was probably a lot like me I guess, although I never met him but he has been a part of my life daily since 1975.

In 1975, I was stationed at Clark AB, when the last Americans and a host of Vietnamese left Viet Nam. Clark had been the reception point for the returning POWs. One of my brother Cops had the wonderful opportunity to give his to the person named on the bracelet. Continue reading

Loss of a dog, no a friend

This weeks article is another guest article by Dan McNeil. This one much less controversial than his previous articles, and a tribute. He wrote this in May of 2014.

I lost a best friend last week.  After 11 years, our Yorkie passed on.

He’d been fading for a year, his passing was expected, and we knew it would be sad.  But I thought it would be bearable. Continue reading

Bill Maher’s standards are not American standards

This week we have another guest article by Dan McNeil, he wrote this to his e-mail subscribers late last year, around October.

When rich and famous Robin Williams killed himself last month, it was quite a shock.

Dear Tech Support

Dear Tech Support:

Last year I upgraded from GirlFriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0. I soon noticed that a new program began “Unexpected Child Processing” that took up a lot of space and valuable resources. In addition Wife 1.0 installed itself into all other programs and now monitors all other system activities. Applications such as “Poker Night 10.3”, “Football 5.0” and “Hunting & Fishing 7.5”, as well as “Racing 3.6” no longer run, crashing the system whenever selected.

I cannot seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run my favorite applications. I am thinking about going back to GirFriend 7.0, but the uninstall doesn’t work in Wife 1.0. Please Help!

Thanks,

Troubled User
