September Song

BandWhen I was a young man I wanted to change the world. Now that I am young no longer I want the world to change. When I was just back from serving in Korea I played with a dance band called The Silvertones. One of our most requested numbers from people of the "older generation" was a song called September Song. The old couples would come out on the dance floor and snuggle close.  Here is the lyric.

"Oh, it's a long, long time from May to December
But the days grow short when you reach September
When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
One hasn't got time for the waiting game
Oh, the days dwindle down to a precious few
September, November
And these few precious days, I'll spend with you
These precious days, I'll spend with you,"

In this busy, troubled world it just might help if we'd all take a time out and snuggle and think about that lyric.


Ballotpedia - Fred DuVal

Polls and Background Data on Fred Duval.


Don't Believe The Lies! Jan Brewer Is Making Stuff Up

It's a shame that the attacks are already starting against the Arizona governor's Democratic Candidate, Fred DuVal.

According to Linda Valdez, a columnist for the Arizona Republic, "Gov. Jan Brewer has her facts wrong about Fred DuVal."


Don't Believe the Lies, Believe the Facts! More Visit Doctors

It's important to believe the facts, not the lies certain politicans shout out hoping they will gain votes.  We need honest politicans that base their political decisions on facts.

60% of people with new coverage visited a doctor or other provider, went to a hospital, or paid for a prescription.  6 of 10 would not have been able to access or afford this care previously.


City of Maricopa Real Estate

Real estate in the City of Maricopa is always hot.  With many Realtors in the City, it's easy to connect and find the home that fits your needs.


Arizona Republicans Start Slinging Mud - But Don't Tell All The Facts

The Arizona Republicans start slinging mud almost instantly after the primary, but stopped before they told the whole story. Which came first, the checken or the egg? Well, what came first is that the Arizona Republican-dominated Legislature SLASHED funding to universities by $428 million.  That is 50 percent of its per-student funding.  Let me repeat the Arizona Republican-dominated Legislature SLASHED funding to universities by $428 million.


Don't Believe the Lies, Believe the Facts! Poverty Uninsured Rate Fell

It's important to believe the facts, not the lies certain politicans shout out hoping they will gain votes.  We need honest politicans that base their political decisions on facts.

In states that expanded Medicaid, the uninsured rate for people in poverty fell sharply from 28% to 17%.  But there was NO significant change in nonexpanding states.


Ill Gay Veteran Pleads With Judge to Recognize His Marriage

Jamie Ross of Courthouse News writes on August 27, 2014, "A same-sex couple from Arizona asked a federal judge to recognize their marriage because one is dying of cancer and wants to leave his spouse his military veteran's benefits.  George Martinez and Fred McQuire, who have been together for 45 years, were married in July in California, a month after Martinez, 62, was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer and told he only has months left to live.  They met in Arizona in 1969 when McQuire was serving in the Air Force, and became a couple a year later.


Don't Believe the Lies, Believe the Facts! Young Adults Insured

It's important to believe the facts, not the lies certain politicans shout out hoping they will gain votes.  We need honest politicans that base their political decisions on facts.

In all age groups, the number of uninsured young adults dropped the most.


A Life Lesson from a Young Starling

Happy BirdThe other day, I looked out my office window and saw a half-grown starling perched on the branch of an olive tree. It seemed as if he hadn’t been flying very long and appeared to be excited about his new-found freedom. He hopped from place to place on the branch, each time stopping and moving his head from side to side taking in the sights as if he were seeing them for the very first time. His mouth was open as if he were smiling and marveling at all the beautiful things he saw. He seemed to be a truly happy being. The lesson for us is that we live in same world as that young starling. And, just like that starling, wonderful and beautiful things pass by our eyes on a continual basis, but because we’re so often focused on other things, we fail to take them in. So, if you want to add some joy to your life, start acting like that young bird. Every now and then stop where you are, take a deep breath and look from side to side for the sole purpose of taking in the beauty that’s in front of you. It will be fun to see what you discover.


Don't Believe the Lies, Believe the Facts! Adults Insured

It's important to believe the facts, not the lies certain politicans shout out hoping they will gain votes.  We need honest politicans that base their political decisions on facts.

9.5 Million fewer adults were uninserued.  The adult uninsured rate fell from 20% to 15%.


Where do candidates for governor stand on gay marriage?

Andrea Hiland of the Arizona Republic asked the candidates for governor where they stand on the issue of same-sex marriage .

Voters who support same-sex marriage really should read this article carefully.

Helping and Getting Help
Helping HandSome folks give us a helping hand along the way, others give us a giant push upward and sometimes we get to stand on the shoulders of giants. It might be as simple as a kind word when you need one or a pat on a shoulder that lets us know we are following the right path. I have never met a truly self-made man. I have met several who took all the credit though. For these past few weeks I have been examining the work I have done in these past years and I am truly amazed at what I have discovered.  That is, that there were an awful lot of unselfish, kind hearted, generous, loving people who have helped me in some way with almost every important step I have taken in my career. Another thing I am learning too is that in many instances I have been able to have a strong impact on the lives of those who have helped me. I don't recall ever setting out to pay back or get even or show appreciation though. Life just turned out that way. What is that expression..."What goes around comes around." Yes, well is sure does. My research has made me feel pretty good about the way people have treated me and how I have treated them, although there are some that I could never really repay. Anyway, I would like to thank all of you who have helped me along the way. And I will keep on trying to help others too on their journey.

George Takei - Activist

George Takei

We were fortunate to meet George Takei and his partner Brad Altman at the HRC dinner this past March in Phoenix. A handshake, a hug and a word of encouragement from George and Brad helped make our same sex marriage fight here in Arizona, just a bit easier.  But our struggle pales in comparison to the personal story of Mr. Takei during World War II. Take sixteen minutes of your time to learn about his struggle and how he now fights for equal rights throughout this great land we call home, a land we call America.

As a child, George Takei, his siblings and parents, all United States citizens, were forced into an internment camp for Japanese-Americans, as a "security" measure during World War II. Seventy years later, Takei looks back at how the experience shaped his surprising, personal definition of patriotism and democracy.


A Hollywood Star who knew how to be a Star
James GarnerJames Garner passed away a few weeks ago. I really enjoyed his televisions shows like Maverick and The Rockford Files because he came across as a guy who was easy to be around. I did some checking and it turns out he actually was. Mr. Garner was an atypical Hollywood star. The word most commonly used to describe him was “affable” which means he was pleasantly easy to approach and talk to, friendly, cordial and warmly polite. Tom Selleck was quoted in Variety.com saying that, “…every actor should take “star lessons” from James Garner.” Mr. Garner also got married once and stayed that way. He was just a few days short of his 58th wedding anniversary when he died. Such is the legacy of a man who was comfortable in his own skin and saw no need to put on airs.
