Don't Rush Me

Donuts make Don smile.

Remembering Domino Dots and three-year-old Sean

At the behest of my very own, personal physician, Dr. Marie Livieratos, out of Clarkston, I'm trying to me a little more healthy. I'm trying to move more, so three or four times a week I'll either ride my stationary bike for 45 minutes or go out for a three mile walk/jog (emphasis on the walk)....more >>

Don't Rush Me

The Ig Nobels are out and Michigan represents.

Read and discover another incredible use for BACON!

Folks who have weekly subjected themselves to the ramblings of a mad man may remember one of my favorite times of the year is September. September is when the pointy-headed brainiacs out east (way out east in Cambridge, MA) get together and present the Ig Nobel Prizes....more >>

Don't Rush Me

Rush on my son. Rush on.

Why didn't I get the memo that Rush was gonna be cool? And, why wasn't invited to said cool party?

When I was but a wee lad growing up on the mean, graveled streets of Clarkston, in the ghettos known as Independence Township, my last name was something other kids could easily make fun of....more >>

Don't Rush Me

It's always good to know, readers can also write!

Even the snarky ones.

You know, you put your heart and soul out there to share with the public and well, I reckon sooner or later somebody is gonna' notice it. Same with writing a column. The way I cipher-it, I've pen and typed something close to 1,500 columns -- most of them under the column name Don't Rush Me....more >>

Don't Rush Me

Here's something you don't see everyday: respect

Because Mr. Don (I'd Rather Be Up North Kayaking Than Sitting Behind My Desk) Rush took off most of last week, here's a "gem" of a column he penned in 2012 (published September 5) about a fast fading social norm ....more >>

Don's great adventure into the fashion world (no, for real)

Fashioneistas, hold onto your strapless, sequined dresses

Fillin' in. That's what I did this past weekend and unexpected, that's what it was. Why would a fashion maven, world-wide-web communicator type, ask a truly undiscriminating eye to pinch-hit on a fashion blog? I chalk it up to desperate times call for desperate measures....more >>

Damn. I knew the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge would come a'calling

@#$%&!! I hate this kinda stuff!

Let me put this out, up front before we get too far into what will probably turn out to be a classic Don Rush Diatribe (DRD for those who like communicating in text lingo). I don't really "hate" anything....more >>

Don't Rush Me

One good turn deserves another

. . . and can some body take this song and put some music to it?

Last month was Community Paper Month here in Michigan and across the vast fruited plains o' America. We had a contest for folks to write an essay on community papers and got some good ones, too....more >>
