There are statements that kind of straddle the truth.  Some of them are in today’s podcast.“Maintenance free” is one of those statements. It doesn’t really mean you can’t break it. What it really means is if it breaks nobody can fix it. Maintenance free. Part of the problem is simply your point of view. Some people see milk and honey, other people just see calories and cholesterol. Maybe that’s why “over look” is different from “over see”.  And the complications don’t have to stop with words. When I walk past some pretty girls at the beach in the Summer I usually keep my belly sucked in. Is that a lie? Or is it just stupid. I lean toward thinking it’s stupid because they’re going to ignore me any way, and I’ve found if I keep my belly sucked in too long my ankles swell up which hurts.

The dictionary says, “A lie is the intention to deceive.” So I guess the trick here is to figure out if somebody is trying to fake you out, or is he is just trying to be nice, or maybe he’s just too dumb to understand the problem. We dealt with that in today’s podcast. And believe it or not, you can’t even trust an expert opinion. Or an eye witness. If you ask a turkey what he should be stuffed with, if he could answer he’d probably say, “Grasshoppers, seeds and worms.” And he’s an expert and an eye witness. But Happy Thanksgiving.

I was up late the other night reading a new report from a shrink tank that says, “We lie about 3 times in a 10 minute conversation with strangers?” I mentioned it in today’s podcast. What that means is, we say things like “How nice to see you.” “I’ll call you.” “You’re looking really great.” Looks like we’re a bunch of liars with strangers. And I have to guess we’re even less truthful with people we know, respect and love. “I’ll be working late at the office tonight, dear.” “I had a wonderful time.” “I did not have sex with that woman.” Whoops.  Making things even more complicated, now we have, “Alternate facts” and “Fake News.”

On the one hand there’s the truth, and on the other hand there are fingers. I’m sitting here in my big, manly black leather poppa chair, trying to figure out which of these to believe: “He who hesitates is lost,” or “Look before you leap.” Common sense says they can’t both be true but there’s an ELEMENT of truth in both of them. It’s not like, “The check is in the mail” or “I’m from the government and I’m here to help you.” We are telling the truth about lies in today’s podcast .  And the truth is, you really should give it a listen.

Lots of crazy stuff happening today. Not much we can do about  most of it. But according to today’s podcast, we can change the way we think about it, and that should help how we feel about what’s going on.

It’s Friday, so it’s time for the Dick’s Details feature  from today’s podcast. Dick’s Details, is a bunch of totally un-important stuff for you to stuff in one ear, so you can squeeze the important stuff that’s making you crazy out the other ear, and you can go grab a grin. The smart guys in the white lab coats tell us that one of the differences between men and women is that far more men than women are color blind. Seems to me that there are more fun ways to tell the difference between men and women. Those same smart guys say that gold fish will turn white if they are kept in a dark room. I guess they’re afraid of the dark. If the answer is “De-calfanated” what is the question. An average announcer can get about 58 words into a 30 second commercial. In the case of some drug commercials it seems like there are gusts to at least 158 words. Sound does not travel through a vacuum. But hopefully the dirt on your carpet does…travel through your vaccum…unless it’s not making any sound in which case it’s broken. If the answer is “De-calfinated” the question is what do you call a cow who has just given birth. Hey, a little bull never hurt anybody. Dick’s Details, they take your mind off your mind.

A little housekeeping here: If you like these podcasts, or my book Staying Happy Healthy And Hot, or my spoken word cds , please tell a couple of friends. They might like them too, and you’d be doing me a favor. So thanks.

Red lights are wrinkle removers. Today’s podcast tells you to put some in places where you want to look like yourself, only younger. Like in your bedroom.

It really wasn’t my birthday yesterday like lots of you thought it was. I tried to answer everybody who wrote, but the computer actually started complaining, and stopped working. So if I missed you, my apologies. And thanks. Today’s podcast might help.

Hi Folks, it’s not really my birthday today. But I’m getting hundreds of notes wishing me well. And that’s pretty neat. So thank you anyway.
