Kindle Free Pick of the Week - The Eighties: A Bitchen Time To Be a Teenager!

For those of us that survived the 80's.

The decade of the 1980s has been called the Decade of Decadence. Decadence is defined as "the act or process of falling into an inferior condition or state; deterioration; decay" or my favorite, "unrestrained or excessive self-indulgence." For a decade that brought us Cabbage Patch Kids, Garbage Pail Kids, leg-warmers and New Wave, was it really self-indulgence?! For one kid growing up in the Central Valley of California, it was a time of self-discovery . . . a transformation from a kid, to a teenager, to a young adult . . . his growing up years. At times utterly hilarious, at times poignant and powerful, Tom relives his teenage years in this true-to-the-last-word memoir. Where were you when John Lennon died? When the Space Shuttle blew up? When Lawrence Taylor ended Joe Theisman's career on live TV? When the Loma Prieta earthquake rocked Game 3 of the 1989 World Series? Tom will tell you where he was and what it meant to him. You'll also hear about first kisses, first loves, a joke about your Uranus, avoiding fistfights, the joys of minimum-wage jobs, college roommates, and WHOLE LOT MORE. If you're one of the 70 million Americans who can claim at least one teen year in the decade, you can relate to the era . . . if your kids can't understand your fondness for your Breakfast Club and Princess Bride DVDs, this book may teach them a thing or two about YOUR growing up years. Go ahead, say the word "bitchen" outloud. Yeah, it was a bitchen time, the Eighties . . . (and, yeah, the word can be spelled "bitchen" or "bitchin'" - the author prefers the former . . . )

Talking to NASCAR Drivers

Had the pleasure to interview three different NASCAR drivers on Thursday.

Not the big name drivers from the Sprint Series, but three guys that drive on the Xfinity Series and the Camping World Truck Series,

Ray Black Jr., David Starr and Cale Conley were a delight to talk to. They were polite, gave insightful answers and seemed to be having a good time talking to me,

How often does that happen?

These guys are appreciative of where they are in the sport and are hopefull they will keep progressing. Each has a unique story and it was fun talking to them each for a few minutes.

New York, New York

Yes, it's cold in New York.

And it wouldn't be a hotel room in New York if there wasn't a building under construction in sight.
