A friend of mine told me he was having some difficulty commenting on my blog earlier today. I got all excited, thinking to myself, “Maybe THAT’s why I haven’t had many comments lately! It certainly couldn’t be the subject matter, after all!!” {facepalm} Oh, I know… My sense of humor is sometimes lost on others. I’m old[er]; whaddya expect?!! LOL

So in order to comment, first you must have something to say (Dah!) then you’ve got to be willing to put it out there for all to see.

Get your mind out of the gutter; I’m talking about your comments.
If it’s something else you wanna stick out there then by all means bring your cute self over here. I’m single so I suppose I’m up for some nice cuddling
(and whatever) with a cute guy. (c:

If you can carry on a good conversation, have a quick wit
and are hung like a horse, all the better!


ALL kidding aside, let’s take a look at what it takes to comment on the blog entries.

Assuming you are already viewing the entry you want to comment on, scroll down to the bottom of that page. You will see an image similar to the one appearing below.

Do the following:

  1. Type whatever name or ID you want to appear next to the comment in the first box titled “Name” (this is a required field) (see example);
  2. Type your email address in the second box titled “Mail” (this too is a required field) — Note that your email address will NOT be published; it is kept completely private. (see example);
  3. Type the content of your comment in the box located just above the ‘Submit’ button; and
  4. Click on “Submit Comment.”

You should now see something similar to the image below (click on image to enlarge):

NOTE: The “Website” field is reserved for use as a HTML link; the field is optional. If you wish you may enter an address ( which will create a hypertext LINK that activates when the reader clicks on your name with their mouse.

If, for any reason you are having difficulty posting comments to any of the blog entries please email me at

I hope this has been of some help to you.

    EVERYONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET MARRIED!!!! I am bisexual (pansexual to be more arccuate) and I really want to be able to get married! I didn’t choose my sexuality I was born this way. Love is love and when I fall in love I WILL get married!

      There are already gay dioevcrs taking place in states that have had gay marriage for awhile. But there’s a serious problem: states that don’t acknowledge gay marriage will not do these dioevcrs. And most if not all states have residency requirements for one to file for divorce. So now, gays who have marriages on the books have serious potential financial problems unless they want to move back to some state that has gay divorce in order to get one. Most people can’t just up and leave where they are without significant hassle and upheaval.

    Hey Mike ! Haven’t been at the home sight for a few days so I failed to see that it was your 47th B-day until now ! So first I apoligize buddy and second to wish you a belated (not by much) HAPPY 47th (gulp !) BIRTHDAY ! Man in a few decades you just may catch up to me ! I hope you had a very productive celebration and that the morning after wasn’t to bad in the way of a hellish hangover ? May you have at least another 50 or so ! Now, did you get any special treats ? Any good wet towel snapping with a young Tom Selleck ? You wish ! Take care my friend and many many many more ! Old Swift Boater and your Nor Cal friend Ron

      You are just SOOooo ornery, my friend. LOL! Nope, no treats (well, unless you count being present at the same bar where a homophobic co-worker of mine from 14 years ago was busted flirting with another guy). I blogged about it in here. You must read; it will have you laughing your hiney off in no time at all. But I was good; birthday was quiet and even when Ali (a friend) and I went out to the bar, we only had a couple of beers. Hangovers just aren’t as much fun as they used to be. ROFL!! 😉 Hugs, Michael

        i think gay people sohuld be allowed to marry eachother and have it called marrage. I think its just discriminating when they dont allow it to be called marrage just because the two people are of the same sex. Marrage is supposed to be the union of two people who love eachother, it sohuldnt matter what your gender is.

    Reached your blog via a response you left on Davide M’s post about his autistic brother.
    Your post was sensitive, positive and supportive. I like that in guys.

    I looked at some posts here. I was particularly interested in what you say about gays and gay marriage. I might have put it a little differently, but I am basically in agreement with you. I am a very strong advocate for gay marriage; I also believe that same-sex relationships can be purely sexual or filled with love and commitment just as is true with hetero relationships

    I love Davide M as a brother, but he and I disagree very much when it comes to gay marriage (and some other issues).. He and I come from strong Catholic families. He is a very, very conservative Catholic yet. No one will ever see me give up my Catholic worldview, but I’m very much at odds with the institutional Church. I consider myself a “Vatican II Progressive Catholic. I find it very weird that “in the Church” a sterile man can validly marry even though he has no possibility to father children, BUT an impotent CAN’T validly marry because he can’t “get it up.” I think that is pretty twisted.

    I have a blog. It is much more generally oriented to church and world issues. I do not write my blog as a gay person (i won’t deny it either), but if you read my overly long posts you will learn something about me and my orientation to gayness, gay issues, and gay rights.

    Take care, Seb

      Thank you for your kind comments. —Michael

      You and I have had time to exchange many emails and as well, to chat with one another on Skype. While I was at first impressed with the kind of person you appeared to be, I’d be remiss not to mention [NOW] that you had lied to me and enough of what you told me was untrue that others would be well-advised to steer clear of you for now. I find it disheartening that so many disingenuous people have crossed my path during my 47-years of walking along this earth. That said, I will not lose hope that the numbers of those who are authentic and honest DO outnumber the fakirs. I just wish that the “fakirs” would leave me the hell alone once and for all, so that I don’t have to constantly be on the alert — trying to filter them out from those who ARE deserving of my friendship.

      I find it disturbing that you claim to love Davide M as a brother, yet (just as with myself) you never took the opportunity to tell him the truth about yourself. That you are not a 25-year old single gay male but are instead, a 65-year old retired professor (and I’m not even certain this is true) who is married with four grown children of his own. It’s not my intention to make the details of your life know here, Ken but I am pissed that you lied (not only to myself but to another of whom I care about and consider to be a friend). Davide feels hurt and betrayed by you, as he does by one other person who has apparently been lying to him.

      I’ll hope that you will, in time ponder over the hurt you have caused others and will resist presenting yourself as anything other than who you really are in the future. IF you are serious about wishing to have a loving relationship with another man then you need to seriously consider being honest right from the start. Quit being deceptive about your life, pretending to be much younger than you really are in an attempt to get others to show an interest in you. After all, any man worth having around is going to be a man who’s developed real feelings for you that are based on the truth and not on what he “thinks” you may look like, etc.

      (Also, it is blatantly unfair to both yourself AND your wife to stay in that relationship if it is not working for you. I would tell anybody else the same thing; gay or straight. If the relationship you are in is not working for you and there is no chance of repairing it or “making it work” — it’s time to consider leaving. Most assuredly, you should not be pursuing any kind of relationship with another person until you have cut the ties completely from the one that you are in. Of course, this is complicated when there are children involved as you will always be involved in your “family’s” life. That’s understandable; I’m talking about cutting ties by leaving the one that you are with before trying to pursue or even “look for” others with whom you might build a life with. My opinion…)

      I wish you well…
