A Week of Political Ups and Downs—Sunday Political Brunch August 26, 2018

Sunday, August 26, 2018

Once again President Trump was back in West Virginia this week, the state in which he is the most popular with a 62 percent approval rating. That’s six visits since taking office. Many people here love him, but he got two doses of bad news upon Air Force One’s touchdown. It’s a mixed bag for Mr. Trump. Let’s “brunch” on that this week.

A Topsy-Turvy Week of Political Hodge-Podge - Sunday Political Brunch - August 19, 2018

Mark Curtis

Sunday, August 19, 2018

Wow! What a weird week in politics. We had four state primaries, and all kinds of Washington tumult, plus our ongoing attempt in West Virginia to impeach the entire State Supreme Court. It’s a topsy-turvy hodge-podge! Let’s “brunch” on that this week!

How To Watch Preseason Football

Saturday, August 18, 2018

Preseason football can be very interesting for some fans, and very boring for others. I am laying out some tips, points and suggestions about how to watch preseason football. Because it is quite different than any other game. I am trying to make it enjoyable for even the most casual fans, and even hardcore fans can take these games a little too seriously.

“The Red Tide vs The Blue Wave”—Sunday Political Brunch August 12, 2018

Mark Curtis

Sunday, August 12, 2018

It’s beginning to sound like a professional wrestling card, “The Red Tide” versus “The Blue Wave” in a loser-leaves-town match, but that’s how crazy it is getting. On Tuesday several states held primaries or special elections, but evaluating the significance was – as usual – way over the top. Let’s “brunch” on that this week.

Do Sharp Elbows Spike Poll Numbers?—Sunday Political Brunch July 29, 2018

Sunday, July 29, 2018

Last week was a bad one for President Trump, or was it? He faced a barrage of criticism in both parties and in the media for “going soft” on Russian President Vladimir Putin on the issue of interference in the 2016 U.S. elections. Trump got pummeled. So, what happened? His poll numbers went up. Let’s “brunch” on that this week.

Slumming It At Safeco Field

Sunday, July 29, 2018

Every baseball season since my wife and I moved to Seattle, a little over five years ago, we have made a point to attend at least one Seattle Mariners home game, usually a mid-week day game as she likes pretending she is playing hooky from her computer and data-intensive job in market research, working for one of the team’s, not to be named, sponsors. Let’s just say, they know where you are watching the game, via Twitter hashtag.

The Total Self – Mentality – How To Improve Your Mental Toughness

Sunday, July 29, 2018

For those of you who follow this site (and read any of my “The Total Self” entries), you do know I am always harping on foundational elements to building a successful life, not just looking good in your favorite pair of jeans. In this article, I am talking about mentality. As in what drives you, what is your focus? If your life was a song, what would be the tune? What would be the melody? What would be the overall flavor, message and connotation(s) that this song would give the people who listen to it? Having a mentality for success is very simple. Implementing, maintaining and parlaying that into success is the hard part. So let’s start with the basics. What is important to you? What gets you excited? What do you fantasize about doing in life? No matter what it is, having a mentality that is geared towards success will help you get there. Every house has a firm, secure foundation. So must your ‘mentality house” have a sound, secure foundation.

Do You Get “Do-Overs” in Politics?—Sunday Political Brunch - July 22, 2018

Mark Curtis

Sunday, July 22, 2018

We all make mistakes – politicians, too! How many times in life do we seek a “do over” to set things right? The world of politics is harsh, but it is also very forgiving. People seemingly dead in political life, have a history of rising from the ashes only to be embraced by the public again. Think Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and perhaps more recently Governor-turned-Congressman Mark Sanford, although he has since been voted out. Can President Trump bounce back from a difficult and challenging week? Let’s “brunch” on that this week:

The Portland Trail Blazers Won! With A Bunch Of NBA Players…

Sunday, July 22, 2018

The Portland Trail Blazers have rightfully been crowned Las Vegas Summer League champs due to, in no small part, having nine players that are currently in the NBA or have formerly played NBA minutes. It’s not really clear what the prize is for winning the trophy in the desert, but maybe it helps Neil Olshey pad his otherwise lackluster front office resume (don’t let this summer league championship distract you from the fact that the Blazers are capped out until 2020-21).
