More and More Steve..

If you are me, you can never get enough of Steve Hardy .            
He has 4 different popular shows that he hosts.
I like them all.  
Family Feud----How do you not love the Feud?  And if you love the Feud, how do you know love
Steve Harvey as the host of the Feud.  It's a perfect so over the top. It's perfect.

Little Big Shots----Very talented kids with Steve.  You can't beat it.

Steve--an all purpose variety show not as compelling as the first two, but very watchable nevertheless

Steve--A show that resembles "Maury" and "Jerry Springer" but far more less classy?

Steve----Give him a chance?  At least

Remember Me???

Sorry it took so long. 
It was taken up in the hospital for many weeks. 
Hopefully it is all behind me now
A know I can be far more accessible to you than I have been.
I hope you are still there to here what I have to say.
As always, I will effort very tell you compelling stories.

Except for two hours taken up with physical therapy, they'd leave me the hell alone.
I had a private room,
The big advantage to this was at 1pm on WGN Chicago, where most days you can catch the "Maury"  syndicated series, which features for the most part lying- rat bastards- who- get- caught--taking lie detector tests,  Did they think the question beat the machine?  They all almost when immediate fold when caught.
It's great.  It's fantastic.
More later.

bernie, part 2.

So, did I run into bernie on the ship?
I did not.
I envisioned wrapping him in the mouth.
The opportunity did not come up.
More's the pity.
There were lots of opportunities but none of them occurred.
I owe him one.
And he doesn't deserve to have his name capitalized.

bernie..

So I attempted to book my cruise by calling a guy I've known for over 50 years and lives in Fort Lauderdale.  He does this for a living, and I have no reason not to book it through him.
But I have Let, him get the commission.  It doesn't cost me anything.
So I call Bernie.  To call Bernie a friend is an exaggeration.  He's just some one I've known for 50 years.  All I was to Bernie was a commission.  So let him get it.  Fine with me.

Then we decided not to go.
Then we changed our minds again.
We tried calling Bernie again.
We got his machine.
Our schedule was limited.  And my wife didn't know Bernie.  And didn't care about him.
So we called Celebrity Cruises and booked the cruise directly.
Then we got an email indicating that Bernie will be hosting the cruise we booked.
So, I felt I had to call Bernie and alert him.
So, I did.
And, after a few words, Bernie hung up on me.

About Me

Hi. I am, according to my Wikipedia entry,(which I did not create) a noted television writer, playwright, screenwriter, and occasional actor. You can Google me or go to the IMDB to get my credits, and you can come here to get my opinions on things, which I'll try to express eloquently. Hopefully I'll succeed. You can also e-mail me at macchus999@aol.com. Perhaps my biggest claim to fame is being responsible, for about six months in 1975, while Head Writer for the "Happy Days" TV series, for Americans saying to each other "Sit on it."
