Greg Bover Quote of the Week

“It’s hard to feel sad when you are being useful.”

Louis C. K. (1967-    )

A Washington, D. C. native, C. K. uses the initials in place of his birth name, Szekely, as they approximate its Hungarian pronunciation. His family moved to Mexico City when he was an infant and then to Newton, Massachusetts when he was seven. He is perhaps best known for his highly-regarded comedy show “Louie”, on FX, but he has been a writer for Chris Rock, David Letterman, and Conan O’Brien as well as writing and directing several films and shorts, and appearing in many movies and television shows. He began his career as a stand-up comedian at an open-mic night in Boston, and now tours widely, and has innovated direct-to-consumer ticket sales, bypassing Ticketmaster and other large, controlling middlemen. C. K. has won five Emmy Awards and a Grammy. He is divorced from Alix Bailey and has two children.

GMG APP and “Mr. Skeptical” aka “Paulie Walnuts Frontiero”

OK GMG Readers!

Usually I like to give Joey a hard time when he come’s up with a “Great Ginormous” GMG Idea.

Not because I’m jealous that he’s so passionate about this GMG thing. I just like to see his expressions when I criticize him and the Blog. 🙂 It brings me Happiness! 🙂

But this APP is GREAT. Very easy to download, install and navigate all GMG content.

Just request the App from Joey. When you receive it just click on the attachment and click save. Then when it finishes downloading click on the install button. So easy even I did it.


Works Great on my Samsung S3

Maybe he can add a GMG AUTHOR Button so people can click on the author that they like (ME) and their recent and past posts.

Also maybe a SEARCH Button.

Great job JOEY! Did I just write that?

Don’t Pop Pedey!

In case you were ever wondering what Dustin Pedroia would look like as a balloon creation…here you go.

Never being one, when given the opportunity, to miss out on presenting someone with a challenge, good old Finn asked the balloon artist on Yawkey Way to make him “a Pedroia.”

Not bad.
