I did not watch this episode with Dr. Oz (I didn't know it was on), but I read the summary and plan to look for it online. In my previous blog regarding Oprah's earlier show in May with Brian Weiss, I mentioned that I had been greatly helped by undergoing several past life regressions. Since Oprah's most recent show was specific to Phobias, I have decided to share my personal experience regarding...

The only thing worse than a politician without any vision is one who claims to be able to put a price on life over the next 100 years so he can sell it now for a quick buck. That is no exaggeration of a proposal being considered by Milwaukee politicians. The city comptroller’s office is...

Tonight @ The Bradley Center, 7 p.m.

Wondering why there are so many more bad drivers on the road tonight than usual? Well, it could have something to do with the Milwaukee Bucks’ 7 p.m. game against the Chicago Bulls.

  I believe the name of the neighborhood was Andersonville. Opting out of a second bus, my wife and I walked through sparsely shoveled sidewalks to a tiny, little performance space across from a row of residences. Dinner was a large bucket of mussels and finger food with decent beer from the Hopleaf Bar not far from the theatre. We were there relatively late at night. It was unreasonably cold....

Going to Chicago?

The City of Big Shoulders is known for many things: the Bears, the blues, corrupt politics and the world’s best hot dogs. You can find the latter at Halsted and Madison (4415 N.
