When people today discuss the great oceans of the world, too often they fail to mention the most majestic of them all, Billy.
Sure, the Pacific Ocean may cover 63 millions square miles and sustain life, but how many Top 5 hits has it had?
I grew up a fan of cheesy 80s music and have always loved Billy Ocean. Not enough people seem to recognize his greatness, though, so I wanted to share a few thoughts with you about the magic of this fun and amazing artist.

I hate it when football players wear short sleeve shirts in extremely cold weather.
I understand that they are trying to look tough and show that the weather does not bother them, but it would make more sense to wear a long sleeve shirt and look tough and show that they are smart.
Also, if they do this in cold weather, why don’t those same players wear long sleeve shirts in hot weather and try to prove that the hot weather doesn’t bother them? It makes no sense if you think about it.
I have often wondered how this mentality would translate to other aspects of life, so with that in mind our judges put together this list of Top 5 Items Similar to Football Players Wearing Short Sleeve Shirts in Very Cold Weather.

I’m in a bad mood.
Don’t ask my why, as I don’t really feel like talking right now.
Oh, so you’re just going to sit there and keep reading anyway, huh. That’s ok, I can make small talk or even mid-sized talk if the situation presents itself.
How about this weather? It’s cold and rainy and blah. If it were warmer, I would be outside doing something fun. If it were colder, it would at least be snowing and it would look pretty outside.
Instead, it’s just miserable and stupid outside. Continue reading “I’m in a bad mood”
While people around the world will be celebrating the new year on January 1, I thought it was important to first celebrate the year that was.
A lot happened in 2019. Some of it was great, some of it was sad, and honestly, some of it smelled funny.
So before begin watching giant balls of light drop in New York City and then rise again for some reason, here are a few thoughts I had on the last year. Continue reading “Happy Old Year!”
This summer, I decided to shorten and thin out the hedges in the backyard.
I took on this challenge because I wanted to see if it would make the yard look larger and because I have been at war with the hedges for the past six years.
Sure, the hedges and I are often friendly to each other, but we both know what the other is thinking when we see each other.
“What an ugly eyesore for the yard,” the hedges often think about me.
“Is there a difference between hedges and bushes? Is it possible to have just one hedge? And why do I have to trim you so often?” I often think while looking at the tall green plants that are in a row in my yard. Continue reading “It’s amazing to see how one action can have so many extra positive benefits”
While government leaders discuss impeachment, interest rates and energy policy, I still keep accidentally purchasing “scented” trash bags at the grocery store!
Something definitely needs to be done about this, and I hope that Congress, the United Nations or the Avengers can do something soon about this ill-smelling injustice. This fragrant fraud must be stopped before it stinks again!
Why were scented trash bags invented and distributed? Is this another example of a foreign country trying to disrupt our way of life? Elections are one thing, but when they mess with my trash can, that’s where I draw the line! Continue reading “Congress needs to act to eliminate scented trash bags!”
I know a squirrel who has a pretty good story to tell his or her friends.
One night this summer, I looked out onto the back steps and noticed that the cat was staring at something near the pear tree.
I had been working out in the yard for much of the day, so I was hoping that the cat was just admiring my hard work. Continue reading “You never know what you’ll see in the backyard”
