    H.M.F.M. Chapter Seven: “Boris the….”

    This is a chapter that I truly regret not expanding upon much much more, and if the future and schedules permit, I’d like to come back and re-write this chapter and share with readers a few more sinful scenarios that I may have intentionally left out. Perhaps it was the fact that my mom would […]

  • It is said somewhere in the bible I think, that “it is appointed to all mankind to experience birth and to also taste death.” Well I guess we all must face that fate, but my argument is, why does it seem that death comes knocking far too early on the door of the young and […]

  • I must admit, that by having the infamous last name of McDonald, it was most certainly written in the stars, or in the pages of my very embellished resume, that I was destined to work at the in-famous “Golden Arches,” of McDonald’s restaurants inc. I must also now categorically state, that other than my lucrative […]

    ” A Trilogy of Truth.”

    If ever asked, would you consider yourself to be an Ostrich or an Owl? Strange query indeed. Well I have met many Ostrich’s in my life, and regretfully too few Owls.
