Why are you here?
No, really, I mean it. Do you hope to learn something about me? For crying out loud, why? Well if you insist...
My name is Jeffrey Duly and I'm an alcoholic. (Hi, Jeff!) I am 54 years old, single and living in Nashville, Tennessee, where I am one of only 549 citizens who are not aspiring songwriters. Yes, still single. I guess I just haven't found that special woman that I can sedate, transport to a Las Vegas wedding chapel and marry before she comes to. Oh, I was just kidding about the alcoholic bit.
|The picture at the left is of me in 1968 wearing my little baseball jacket and Phillies cap. I sure was cute back then, eh? That changed when I got older. I don't know why. The picture at the right is me in 2017. Still wearing a Phillies cap but a different one. My head is considerably larger now. I also grew a neck.|

Other Places You Might Like To Go (Go on, visit them. See if I care!)
All of the following sites have undergone rigorous testing and have received the official Jeffrey Duly Seal of Approval. (Ooohh. Aahhh.)
Tim Pool, Dave Rubin, Jordan Peterson and Sargon of Akkad - A bunch of people who have YouTube channels that I like quite a bit that cover the insanity of the modern culture war from a (mostly) reasoned center-left classical liberal point of view.
Instapundit - A libertarian-leaning blog by University of Tennessee law professor Glenn Reynolds.
The Cagle Post - Get your fill of a plethora, a potpourri, a veritable cornucopia of political cartoons.
American Soccer History Archives - Far and away the best site archiving the long and sordid history of soccer in the U.S. Enough said.
South Park Studios - If you are not watching this gem, you don't know what you are missing. Brilliant biting social commentary cleverly wrapped in cut-and-paste animation and nasty language. As Eric Cartman would say, "Kick ass!"
Doctor Who News - Hartnell, Troughton, Pertwee, Baker, Davison, Baker, McCoy, McGann, Hurt, Eccleston, Tennant, Smith, Capaldi and (ugh) Whittaker.
Chris Creamer Sports Logos Page - A fellow called Chris Creamer has compiled a large archive of (mostly) North American sports logos. That's a lot of work. Give it a look.
BBC Online - Great radio. Great television. Not bad for a government-owned enterprise (despite the biased news coverage).
Back To The Future...The Website - Marty. Doc. Lorraine. George. Biff. Lorraine. Mayor Goldie Wilson. Marvin Berry. Lorraine. (Okay, so I like Lea Thompson) Enter if you dare, future boy!
Widen Your World - Dedicated to the good ol' days of Walt Disney's "Vacation Kingdom of the World".
The Great American Pin-Up - I may not know art, but I know what I like.
Sporcle - Take a quiz. Have some fun.
