Searching for my Birth Father

I am an adoptee looking for my Birth Father
I hope to make some kind of contact and perhaps get a few questions answered about the origins of my life.

I was born on June 8, 1975 at Resurrection Hospital in Chicago
I was not given a first name, my birth mother’s last name is Will
She was 21 at the time of my birth and my father was 20
My father was married to someone else at the time but was separated
My mother was/is a resident of Oak Park, Illinois and a graduate of Oak Park River Forest High School.
According to my mother, my father also attended OPRFHS and his name is John (I am suspect of this and cannot verify that it is a fact) My father’s ethnicity is half Greek.

If you have any information in this matter, please reply to this post.

I was looking through my archives and this is something that I wrote 1000 days ago.

This Unsolved Mystery has been solved

I have connected with my birth father

His name is John 

He is a good man

I’m glad I was able to find him

I haven’t talked to him in months 

I owe him a phone call really soon

I think it’s pretty amazing how much life can change in 1000 days

Served on a Silver Platter 

It started off as just a little show and tell of the age old question:

What’s in your purse?

Take a look inside yours…

What did you find?

Now it’s time to add some color…

…shouldn’t be too hard, but then again, it better be hard enough 


It all started with a conversation amongst friends 

Maybe this is the sum of male-female relations?

I’ve always thought there should be love involved 

Maybe there was and you just can’t see it

…or maybe it’s just the aftermath?

Who ever said photography can’t be art?

Whoever they are, they don’t know what they’re talking about 

I’m expecting a check from the National Endowment for the Arts any day now

Discharge is messy sometimes but it sure is a great lubricant 

If you get the chance,

bust a nut;

then be sure to leave a tip

sometimes, it’s only worth a few cents

Six Tips for Co-Hosting a Radio Show or Podcast

Larry Gifford

Co-hosting a radio show or podcast seems like it should be easier because there are two of you, but that also means there are twice the problems. Here are some basic tips that I’ve collected from two-person shows I’ve coached over the years including; Mike & Mike in the Morning, the Ron & Don Show, Mason & Ireland and others.

taking-turns-award-certificate1. Creators and Reactors. The best shows alternate which host is creating or driving the segment and which host is reacting*. Knowing your role at any given moment of a show is critical or you’ll be simultaneously creating the segment. That leads to talking over each other and confusing the listener. A creator is developing the topic, telling a story, or creating the parameters of which the discussion will take place. The reactor responds to the creator, adds insights, details, color, emotion, and asks questions in attempt…

Super Blow Sunday 

Super Blowathon
Are you ready for some football?

Seems to happen every year and usually I sit it out because I find it to be pointless just like most of the rest of life. I really don’t care and I suspect many of us feel the same way. Usually, I stay in, as the roads are not someplace you want to be if you have been known to consume alcohol like I do but this year I decided to go out despite my better judgement.

If I really took pride in my work, I would have made this look a little nicer but obviously I don’t so without further adieu, here’s a list of observations in no particular order:

This event was not so much about who wins the game but rather who wins your heart. The heart won because we have to pander to the women is going to have to rent out a shitload of places just to cover the cost of that ad…higher rent prices coming soon to a town near you 

Everyone should knock out pushing the man-in-a-dress joke. It’s cheap and no longer funny. Candy bars aren’t sexy, never have been, and when it comes to pushing a social agenda, you failed again

Oddly enough, there were no commercials from any of the large banking and financial firms but we all better believe that they had their hands in the cookie jar, they always do

Hold stock in Boeing. Did you see the flyover? Not bad for something designed 40 years ago and you all paid for that commercial too. Be proud America 

The toilets did not explode, yet again, for the 50th time in a row…I’m disappointed 

There was a little bit, very little bit, of a chance that Carolina could have come up with 15 points and they should have gone out with one more play…you could have ended this one as men and took another hit

With all that hype, the favored team went down and you’re going to avoid your bookie’s phone call tomorrow because they’re the real winners…always are

Depending on how you figure it, Peyton Manning is the all-time best ever, but then again, when you look at those stats, hey let’s just let him go with it already, he won the super bowl 

It’s called programming for a reason…quit sitting around, it’s time to go out shopping; Thanks for your continual support. Please go back to bed now America 

You aren’t making it into work on time…yeah, I’m talking to you…a 5 hit-one hitter? Beautiful concept! OK, maybe I’m talking to myself on this one but you know what I’m talking about
