“Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” is probably one of the most famous Christmas stories in the world. I find that sad. I cannot for the life of me, understand what it is about that story that any parent would like their child to learn.Christmas stories like that typically have an underlying message that teach kids some life lesson or help them to understand things about the world. Rudolph is no exception to that rule. It’s just the wrong lesson. Let me explain.
Most of you know by now I am home. The Doctors determined that I had an inflamed intestine and things seem to be good now. I feel great. My time on the inside is over. This was my first hospital visit and I really found it quite exciting in some ways. I am thankful that I had my wife Yvonne with me. She is the most wonderful person I know and I can’t imagine life without her. She and I wanted to thank you all so since there seemed to be so much interest in the first video I did. I thought I would do another one featuring My wife.
Yvonne knows my favorite thing she makes is Tabouli. She promised to make it when we got home, and she did. Please enjoy as she does this in a very special way.

For those of you who have not heard I am in the hospital. When I went into work yesterday, I was feeling very nauseous and full as if I had just eaten. While at work, I had to dash into the janitor’s closet. I thought I would vomit but luckily, it was only the dry heaves. I have not thrown up since the sixth grade, and I am rather proud of this run.

MY FIRST VIDEO POST!!
I have a special treat for you all today. If you did not catch my last post, you should go there now.
While I did win the majority vote for the most rational thinker, I am still finding myself unsatisfied. I really feel like it was just too close of a race. 53.06% for Tom Nardone, and a discouraging 46.94% for my lovely wife, Yvonne Nardone. I will not debate the issue any further. I would like to thank all of you who voted.
I am Tom Nardone, and am therefore awesome. I am an awesome husband. My desire for my wife was for her not to have to go out of her way to get something we already have. She did not feel well and I would have done anything to help her avoid any further discomfort.
Today she came home from work with a new mixer. Her plan was to bake a cake for her brother. We are celebrating his birthday tomorrow. I had a different plan. Continue reading
We are trying something a little bit different here today at I am Tom Nardone. Today my wife and I had our first “I-gument” I coined that word as far as I know, so I will explain what I mean. an “I-gument” is like an argument that you have on an Ipod or an Iphone via text message. Today you get to be the beneficiary of our little disagreement.
You are used to sitting back, relaxing , and getting a double dose of awesomeness. Today i am asking for you do do the thinking as I sit back and relax. I want the truth from you people. No judgement no dirty looks from me. I want you to view the conversation, compare it to your own system of common sense, and then, weigh in and vote.
I know I have blogged against the idea of voting before and now I am asking you to vote. If you can see your way clear of my own personal hypocrisy, I think we can all enjoy this.
Depending on its reception and/or how angry my wife gets when she wakes up tomorrow and sees this, we might just have our first series here. I can almost taste the excitement Continue reading
First things first, I am Tom Nardone, and I would like to thank Jade Reyner for inviting me to write for her today. Jade and I have been reading each other for a good while now, and we have become very good friends. I think the world of Jade and I am a better writer, as a result, of her words.
She left this world on November 4th 2013. She was an incredible woman who I could speak about for hours. I believe this is the story she would wish people to hear of her. I love you Kathy, and I hope I do you proud! Continue reading
