Smorgasbord A Collection of Thoughts Experiences and Stories

I would like to apologize to everyone who attempted to leave a review for Smorgasbord A Collection of Thoughts Experiences and Stories on Amazon. My friends and supporters are starting to come back to me because they’re having a problem writing reviews; Amazon is not letting them. There’s a pop up message about guidelines or something. I haven’t had time to look into this issue yet, but I will Thursday. If you would still like to write a review, I kindly suggest visiting the Barnes & Noble website instead and writing one there. Like I said, I don’t know what the issue is yet with Amazon so I’m not going to speculate. Thank you for trying, please don’t give up. Head over to Barnes & Noble.

Smorgasbord 2 Catch Up and Relish

It seems like it took forever, but Smorgasbord 2 Catch Up and Relish is near completion! What you see there on the left is the official front and back cover. I’m beyond excited for the release of this book, and I think you’re going to enjoy reading it. Fulton Books in Meadville, Pennsylvania is the publishing company.

Upcoming Projects: I’ve been working on Smorgasbord 3 for a few months now. I don’t want to give away too much too soon, but there will be a third book. The title will be Smorgasbord 3 Poverty & Prophecy, and it’s going to blow you away! Also, I’m thinking about having a Smorgasbord 2 release party somewhere. I will keep you updated and in-the-loop on that.

Well, it’s old news now, but the Rams beat the Bengals and won the Super Bowl! Super Bowl LVI (56) was played last Sunday, February 13th, and it was a close one. The Rams won the game by 3 points with a fourth quarter touchdown pass from Mathew Stafford to Coffee Cup? Oh wait, Copper Kupp. Sorry. 🤣🤣 Up until that point, the Bengals held a 20-16 lead that went all the way down to the wire. To be exact, there was 1:25 left to play when the Rams scored the go-ahead touchdown. Stafford completed 26 out of 40 passes for 283 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Ram’s rushing game was nowhere to be found; Cam Akers ran the ball 13 times for 21 yards and never even reached pay dirt.

Joe Burrow completed 22 passes for 263 yards and 1 touchdown. They were able to run the ball well with Joe Mixon (4.8 yards per carry), and WR Tee Higgins caught 4 passes for 100 yards and 2 touchdowns. In the end though, none of that mattered for the Bengals. On that day, the 13th of February in the year 2022, the Rams were the better team.

♒♓Wow! How fast did the Aquarius birthday season go? I mean seriously, in three more days on the 18th, the sun will move into the astrological sign of Pisces. Honestly, though, I can’t wait. I’m so ready for spring, and I know a lot of you are too. 🌔Currently, the moon is on the 20th degree of fiery Leo, and Venus and Mars are in a body to body conjunction on the 16th degree of Capricorn. Talk about war and peace, huh…

💥Speaking of war, according to Greek Reporter dot com, Russia is now withdrawing its troops from the Ukraine border. I guess they just wanted to get in Ukraine’s face and talk some shit?

💩Oh, BIG STORY here. Eminem kneeled during the half time show.

🏛 I just called the office of the registrar at my alma mater WPUNJ because I wanted some information about registration deadlines. Afterwards, I was scrolling the web, and a story popped up from 2014.

So, five William Paterson University students are or were on trial for the alleged gang rape of a freshman female. The alleged gang rape took place on campus and in a dorm on Tuesday, November 25, 2014.

The five men that were involved all knew each other from the Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF), which offers low-income students an opportunity to go to college with financial aid, preparatory classes and counseling. (Wait a second, wasn’t there just a big issue recently about systemic racism? 😢😢Immigrants and people of color don’t get the same opportunities as white people?)

Well, these five guys (no relation to the restaurant) had a golden opportunity. I told you, all that was bullshit. I can’t speak for other states, but I know for a fact, that New Jersey’s system of higher education has done an amazing job ensuring everyone has a fair and equal opportunity to get educated.

Anyway, there was another incident, but I don’t think it was related. Cherelle Locklear, a 21-year-old junior at WPUNJ committed suicide and her body was found on November 22, 2015. Supposedly, she was raped at an off-campus fraternity house, and her allegations were never investigated. William Paterson University took blame for failing to investigate and paid her family $800,000.

Damn! This isn’t the William Paterson I remember. WTF WPU! Seriously though, this is a shame. I can’t believe it.

🤓I’m gonna drop some real knowledge on y’all. I was totally indoctrinated by the college educational system, and especially because I was a teacher. I believed everything. They used to tell us that inner-city school students are way behind because there’s no money to get them the tools they need to be successful and compete with schools in higher income areas. I was on board with everything-fighting for my students. I was so gung-ho.

And then I get into the classroom, and see students throwing scientific calculators worth hundreds of dollars at the floor and walls. Literally, trying to break them.

And I just sat there for a brief moment watching this, and to myself, I’m like, “wow, if you only knew how hard people fight to get you the shit you need, and here you are trying to break a calculator your parents would have to work two weeks to pay for.”

Case in point-Don’t believe the hype!

Second Case in point-In order for schools to be successful, the students have to be successful, and money has nothing to do with it. The best schools are those where parents, teachers, and administrators have found a middle ground-all coming together, working in unison for the betterment of the child. And of course, once the student sees this cooperation between teachers and parents, their behavior miraculously changes.

Alright my friends, have a wonderful night and a blessed Wednesday. Stay warm!

Friends, Followers, and Fans; What’s going on?

♒Today is February 4, 2022. Happy birthday season to all my fellow Aquarians out there, a season that stretches from January 20th to the 18th of February. Right now, the moon just entered the fire sign of Aries. I don’t know if you were aware, but we just had a new moon on February 1st, and there will be a full moon on the 16th.

🛸NUFORC, the National UFO Reporting Centered logged over 370 reports for the month of December. The report that stuck out the most came from Branford, Connecticut. At approximately 11 o’clock in the evening on December 19, 2021, someone reported seeing a circular craft in the sky with a flashing red light. This person claims to have first seen this same craft during the day in Nevada; in May of 2021. Apparently, this craft followed him back to his home state and he now sees it every night when he gets out of work. The craft, according to this individual, follows him home from work every night. He posted photos I think, but I couldn’t see them.

🏈Super Bowl LVI (56) will kickoff at 6:30 PM Sunday, February 13th. This year’s Super Bowl will be played at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, which happens to be the home stadium for the Rams, one of the teams playing in this game. The other team is the Cincinnati Bengals. So this year, it will be the Rams and the Bengals playing for it all. The last memory I have of the Bengals playing in a Super Bowl was against the 49ers. I can still remember John Taylor catching that touchdown pass like it was yesterday. That was Super Bowl XXIII (23).

I just purchased Vitamin C + Zinc with Rose Hips, and the Whole Food Multivitamin from the Info Wars Store. Zinc has been said to work wonders, but it’s hard to find. Not only did the Info Wars Store have it, but they had it at a good price. Thank you for those amazing products. When I like something I support it, which brings me to this point; thank you to all the people making purchases out of our store here at Nooz Buffet. I told you, we sell quality items. We might not have a huge selection right now, but what we have is quality.

❤Valentine’s Day is coming up on the 14th. That’s 10 days from now, and it’s on a Monday this year. Don’t forget to get your loved ones something special, like tote bag from the Nooz Buffet store. You can fill that bag with as much candy and flowers as you want. It’s a great gift for him and her!

Alright everyone, thank you for visiting. Have a blessed Friday!

A Special Time

Here we are, 26 days into the new year, and in five more days, it will be February. February has also been a special month for me. Of course, it’s my birthday month, and for Aquarians in general, but there’s more.

February is the month with the least amount days; it’s unique and stands out from all the rest because it has only 28 days, and because of this, it’s the only month that receives a very special additional day (29) once every four years when there’s a leap year.

February is also black history month, Valentine’s Day is on the 14th, and President’s Day is on the 21st. I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but Valentine was an actual person; he was a Saint, Bishop, and Martyr. Saint Valentine was born in the early 200s AD, I think, and he lived in the area of Italy during the Roman Empire.

Famous people born in February:

Gertrude Stein February 3, 1874, Rosa Parks February 4, 1913, Laura Ingalls Wilder February 7, 1867, Thomas Edison February 11, 1846, Charles Darwin February 12, 1809, Galileo Galilei February 15, 1564, George Washington February 22, 1732, Elizabeth Taylor February 27, 1932, Ice-T February 16, 1958, Ashton Kutcher February 7, 1978, Michael Jordan February 16, 1963, Chris Rock February 7, 1965. and the list goes on and on for a very log time.

February is the last full month of winter, and it is also considered the month of purification! When you have some free time, take a look at all the famous people who were born under the same astrological sign as you. It gives a little guidance and a little insight into what abilities and talents you might have as well.

Alright my friends, have a wonderful evening.

What’s going on my friends? Welcome.

The date today is Tuesday, September 7, 2021-happy birthday to all my Virgo friends! It seems like the sun was in and out of Leo within the blink of an eye, and I have mixed emotions about that.

♍-If you’re an Aquarius and you follow astrology, then you know Leo and Aquarius are stuck in opposition. But, relax-sometimes people see the word stuck and they think bad, but it’s not such a bad thing. I have a 7th house Aquarius sun with Leo rising in the 1st. They say your birth chart is ruled by the planet that rules the sign on your ascendant; since the sun rules Leo, my chart is ruled by the sun. Directly across the way is the descendent, and that’s where Aquarius is housing my birth sun.

When the sun is in Leo, it enlivens those lion-like qualities, and it’s my job to bring the qualities of Leo and the qualities of Aquarius into harmony since those signs are in opposition. In addition, I love the summer, so it’s a fun time all the way around. I don’t know why, but I find it fascinating that the sun rules Leo and the moon rules Cancer. Yup, Cancer and Leo house our luminaries.

What signs do you have on the horizon?

📘📖✍-This Saturday, September 11, I will be at the Barnes and Noble at the Lehigh Valley Mall between the hours of 1 pm and 3pm for my book signing. The address is 801 Lehigh Lifestyle Center, Whitehall, PA 18052. I’m excited-this is my first book signing, and I can’t wait to see you all there.

🏈NCAA- I wanted to give a shout out to Coach Longo (North Carolina Tar Heels). Coach Longo used to coach at the high school in the town I was born in, and then he coached at William Paterson University when I played there. We lost contact over the years, and the next time I saw him he was on the North Carolina sideline. I was home watching North Carolina play Clemson, and there he was. Congratulations Coach! Ohio State has another big game this weekend (Saturday) against Oregon. Both teams won their openers.

😮-Apparently there’s a radio station that tells people how they can save the world! Metro published a story written by Jessica Kwong, about a guy who was being pursued by police. During the chase, Tyson Gilbert, a 39-year-old man from Tennessee, cut his penis off and threw it at the cops who were chasing him. Later he said the radio influenced his actions and convinced him he could save the world by doing so. Lets hope his attempt was not in vein.

👦👧-Compartmentalization is the enemy of progression. I know it’s normal for teenage boys and girls to hang out in their bedrooms with the doors closed. I did it, we all did it, and I don’t know-it’s like all of a sudden we had this need for privacy and 5-hour phone calls. Once in while, open your doors and let your parents see what’s going on. Talk to them. Don’t stunt your families growth by becoming a hermit. Pimple face.

☀-On Wednesday, September 22, the sun enters Libra for the first day of fall. Our fall season will last for 105 days. The first day of winter this year is December 21st.

Okay everyone; have a wonderful night and a blessed day tomorrow. I hope to see you all this Saturday at Barnes and Noble.

P.S. I don’t want to say who it is because it might not happen, but I’m waiting for someone in the world of college football to get back to me to do a short interview. I’ll keep you abreast and a thigh of that situation.

I forgot who this was, but he must’ve pissed me off because this picture was sitting in my file for a while now.
