Rochester, NY 3:40 PM I just got back from the post office where I taped up and sent a box loaded with 15 sets of book proposals, DVD’s, CD’s, and post cards. The To on the address was my agent in NYC. He’ll get the package and start doing his thing. It seems like it’s taken forever to see this day, but I’m psyched. I can’t stop smiling at the thought of sharing my experiences on the road in a book. The book process is slow, so I don’t know when the next update will be. But the next update should be a good one: a publisher. More to come… I put a...

Philadelphia, PA 9:22 PM My desire to be out and about has slowed down some and this was a weekend for movies. I saw Deja Vu with Denzel Washington. Not bad, entertaining. Kind of like a longer CSI with some Hollywood fact bending. That was Friday afternoon after lunch. Friday night was Thank You for Smoking. It was a spoof on the industry of lobbyists, in this case highlighting the tobacco business. The actor talked with glee how his client killed hundreds of people a day versus his counterparts in alcohol and the other in firearms. The movie was decent, but I’m sure it has more truth...

Everywhere 1:05 PM I’ve been back in my office for two and a half days. As is my customary lunch procedure, I park in front of the TV, flipping between CNN, Headline News, and ESPN. Yesterday and today I’ve been continually peppered with updates and coverage of the Anna Nicole Smith story and trial. Now, I like a story about attractive girls with technologically advanced features as much as the next guy, but c’mon already. The only time Anna Nicole Smith had relevance is when I was going through puberty. Her qualities make her far from worthy of being on a News channel. If I watched E!,...

9:22 AM I’m back in NY. It’s cold. My final day down south was 60 degrees. Not bad considering we are excited for 30′s. My travel day was long and had some quirks. My 2 1/2 hour drive from Memphis to the Little Rock airport was uneventful. I said goodbye to my G6 and was happy to see they had charged me less than I expected. Lunch was an overpriced turkey sandwich, chips, and water from the Starbuck’s in the airport. What a rip. $11 for all of it. The turkey covered 1/2 of the bread. I was in the A group on my Southwest flight and looked forward to sitting on the...

Memphis, TN 9:53 PM My five days in Memphis have flown by. It’s been a lot of house time, but when you are spending it with your family, it makes it all the better. My nieces are awesome. I’ve said it before, but being a parent wears you out. Two kids with a boundless supply of energy, going full bore from the time they wake up to the time they pass out, it doesn’t leave a lot of time for much else. And I’ve been caught up in the kid whirlwind reading books, watching movies, coloring, playing, and eating. Kids’ houses have great snacks. Sometimes those of us...
