Handshake | Perhaps, Its Time Has Come.

 

Handshake: The Origin of

Tom-Nardone-Handshake-3Handshake (s) , if you believe what you read in history books, dates back to medieval times. It was a way to show you were not carrying a weapon and it would set the recipients mind at ease. While this may still be true in n Texas,  the handshake has taken on many other meanings, purposes and types.

Today the handshake is simply the way we as humans, at least in this country, greet one another. The only problem I have with the handshake is the obligation to shake a hand simply because it has been extended to me. In some circumstances it is a little presumptuous, but I have no problem with the custom itself. It is quick, easy and appropriate enough. I don’t believe I would feel comfortable cupping a man’s balls on our first meeting, so a handshake sounds about right. Continue reading

Question Society’s Rules, or You’ll Miss Something!

Tom-Nardone-rulesIn our society today, we have rules. Rules or laws are involved in everything we do. Most people abide by the rules of their society, but no one obeys all the rules. When it comes to rules people make their decision mainly on the basis of two things; what is the penalty, and what is the likelihood of being caught? That is just the particular type of assholes we are as Americans. For the record, I proudly count myself among all of you assholes in this regard. Continue reading

Not Giving a Shit, This is the Power of Being Uninformed.

Not-Giving-a-Shit-tom-nardoneI might very well be the most uninformed person in the entire country. I have not watched single news broadcast since the towers came down. I am happily uninformed. I could not name three people in the United States government. I live in South Carolina, and I could not tell you the name of out governor or the name of a single member from the house or senate of any state. Yes, I know this is Awesome; let me tell you all about it! Continue reading

Rat Race, To Hell With That , I Don’t Follow Sports Anyway.

 

rat-race-tom-nardone

Many people in their jobs strive to be the best and I think this is great. I think it is what makes a company great. When you have people so committed to being the best that they give it their all, and do their very best. I do my best while I am at my job, and I rather enjoy it most of the time. I would always rather be at home, but there are days when I have fun at work. I do take pride in what I do while I am doing it. Many people are simply in a rat race.

Some people unknowingly bend themselves over a barrel and patiently wait for the talcum-powdered fist to make its introduction. This is often how the rat race begins. Continue reading

Infidels, Worry Not. | Asalaam alikum from Tom Nardone

Picture1I was driving home in traffic the other day and was mad as Hell at the level of chaos. I thought it would be nice to live in a world without traffic. I pondered what it would be like if I was the only person on earth.

One day I wake up and all of the people are just gone. I am literally the last man on the earth. What would I do? Continue reading

Kids Are Visual, Give Them a Show!

Tom-Nardone-kids-axeIn life, everything that isTom-Nardone-kids-doc accomplished is done so, through communication. Communication is the only way anything happens. If two people don’t tell each other how they feel, they will never date, or marry. If an employer does not tell his people what is expected of them, they will not meet his expectations. If my wife doesn’t tell me to make dinner, before she leaves work, she will come home to a husband playing Xbox, and have to cook. Kids are no different in this way.

The attention of a child is a hard thing to get. A child is a difficult audience. You cannot always gain their attention by Continue reading

Clutter is finished, Get That Table Out of My Sight

Tom-Nardone-clutter-1

by Tom Nardone

Clutter, For the past six or seven months, has taken over my man-cave and it is currently in disarray. This is where I spend the majority of my time alone, and it has slowly evolved into a disaster area. I had gotten used to it and it really did not bother me. However, last night, it did begin to bother me. I was unable to talk myself out of allowing it to just continue.

When I woke up this morning, I made a pot
of coffee, took my meds with the first cup, and went back upstairs to see what would happen. I don’t ever set goals for myself because they can lead to disappointment. I just, …see what happens. Continue reading

Cooking with Yvonne Nardone

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.
