Happy 40th Birthday, CNN!

Today, CNN, which is the Cable News Network, is 40 years old. For the past five months or so, I have been able to watch CNN on a daily basis for several hours in a day. In fact, as I type this blog post, I am watching CNN in my “computer room.” In my house, it’s on Comcast Channel 32. I also have the CNN app … and I may watch CNN on there whenever I want to see it on my smartphone. CNN has some fantastic people and some fantastic shows on there as well.

CNN is one of my favorite cable networks ever … and I’m able to watch it as often as I can whenever I’m in my “computer room.” I’ll also watch it in either my living room or in my dining room. I’ll also see it on the CNN app or on CNN’s website … and, sometimes, I’ll watch various CNN shows on demand if I see anything interesting on there. It’s hard for me to pick a favorite show on CNN because there are lots of good shows on there, but if I had to pick one, I would probably have to say that “Erin Burnett OutFront” is my favorite CNN show. I used to watch it on demand, but now I’ll occasionally watch it at around 7:00 on weekday evenings. I probably won’t watch the whole show, but I may watch bits and pieces of it whenever I get bored.

Let me just wish CNN a happy 40th birthday today. It’s one of the best cable networks ever … and I will continue to watch it as often as I can in the future. The network is that good.

I celebrated my 34th birthday at home!

Now, because of the Coronavirus Outbreak, a lot of us have had to stay home as much as possible.  Now, for almost two months, I have been staying at home as much as possible … and, because of that, I had to celebrate my 34th birthday at home.  Now, sadly, I was not able to go to a restaurant because of the COVID-19 Outbreak, so, instead, the food that I had at my birthday party at home is from KFC.  It could be the one that’s in Canonsburg.  Of course, I had a small birthday cake.  So, while I wasn’t able to celebrate my birthday in a restaurant for the first time in quite some time, I still had a fantastic birthday, nonetheless.  Now, whenever we are allowed to go to restaurants again safely, I will go to one … and I will sort of celebrate my 34th birthday many weeks late.  I like to celebrate my birthday in restaurants.

Guess who is 34 today?

Today is a special day for me.  I am now a 34-year-old gentleman with class.  I officially turned 34 at 6:33 this morning, so I became a 34-year-old about 27 minutes ago.  Of course, by the time you read this blog post, it will have been more than 27 minutes since I turned 34.  So, today, I would like to wish myself a happy 34th birthday.  Please stay safe and enjoy your day, my friends!

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For May 2020

Can you believe it?  The month of May is almost here … and, during the month of April, lots of people, including myself, have had to stay home a lot.  I do still walk to my mailbox whenever I have to, but that’s pretty much it.  I have been able to write some neat blog posts on my home computer while we all have had to stay at home during the Coronavirus Outbreak.  I will give you guys some more blog posts in May … and my features will be taking a well-deserved break in May.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “I have owned my DBZ T-shirt for one year!”  I will talk about my DBZ T-shirt in a blog post in May.  I would like to thank my neighbor and friend, Michael Spicer, for getting me the DBZ T-shirt for my 33rd birthday last year.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph Has Owned His Grey Penguins Shirt For Four Years Now!”  I will talk about my grey Penguins T-shirt in a blog post in May.  Me and my friend, Chuck Lazzini, who occasionally follows this blog, have both owned that shirt for almost four years now.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Guess who is 34 today?”  In the blog post, I will wish myself a happy 34th birthday.  I plan on writing that blog post at around 7:00 on Friday morning.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “I have had a classy ensemble for one year now!”  I will talk about some of my classy outfits in a blog post in May … and they are the purple crew neck T-shirt from Arizona, my dark wash jeans from Chaps, my grey polo shirt from Chaps and my grey half-zip pullover from Nike.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Blog Post Number 1,375 Is About A Classy Sweater!”  I can’t tell you which sweater I’ll be talking about just yet, but I can assure you … the sweater will be a classy one.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Did I get any presents for my 34th birthday?”  Now, I probably won’t get too many presents this year because of the COVID-19 Outbreak, but I know I will get at least one birthday present this year.  I will show you the presents, if I have more than one of them, in a blog post in May.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “8,000 Views And Counting.”  My blog will hit the 8,000-views mark in May … and I will talk about the event in a blog post whenever it does occur.

I will give my features a break in May … and, of course, I will give you some fantastic blog posts in May.  Some of them may catch your eye.  Stay safe and enjoy your day, my friends!

Joseph Has A Question For You: Should Joseph go to DeBlaze Grill for his birthday this year?

On May 1st, which is this Friday, I will turn 34 years old … and, for the past few years, I have been going to various restaurants for my birthday.  Now, this year, because of the COVID-19 Outbreak, I won’t be able to go to a restaurant for my birthday, but I will try to get takeout somewhere this year.  I may consider getting takeout from DeBlaze Grill from Bridgeville … and, whenever things are starting to look okay again, I will do my best to go to that restaurant later this year.  So, let me ask you this question … should I get take-out food from DeBlaze Grill in Bridgeville for my birthday this year?  I think I probably should.  As I said before, I hope I will be able to go to the restaurant again whenever it is safe for us to do so again.  Stay safe, my friends.

Jay Papuga Is A Very Classy Friend Of Mine

Today, I would like to wish my friend, Jay Papuga, a happy birthday.  He works at a State Farm office in Presto.  I probably won’t bump into him in person anytime soon because of the Coronavirus Outbreak, so I will show you the two photos of me into Jay in two different locations over the years.  I have been a friend of his since 2016.

Joseph bumped into Jay Papuga at a local festival back in July of 2016.

On August 31, 2018, I bumped into Jay Papuga while I was at his office in Presto. He actually wore the same State Farm that he wore whenever I bumped into him at a church festival in Scott Township two years earlier.

You may have noticed that Jay wore the same grey and red State Farm shirt in the two selfies that I took with him.  The first one is from July of 2016 … and, in it, I bumped into him at a church festival at Sts. Simon and Jude High School in Scott Township.  The second one is from August of 2018 … and, in that one, I bumped into him at his office in Presto.  Jay, if you are reading this blog post, I would like to wish you a happy birthday today.

Happy birthday, Justin McKean!

Today, I would like to wish a very classy person named Justin McKean a happy birthday today.  On January 23, 2007, he was one of three substitute teachers that I had while I was finishing up my time at South Fayette High School … and we have been terrific friends for 13 years now.  He is one of the classiest people I have ever known … and he is able to be a casual and a classy dresser as well.  I sometimes get ideas for my wardrobe from him.  He is casual and classy.  I have bumped into Justin several times over the past 13 years … and, in July of 2016, I was able to snap a selfie with Justin at McSummerfest … and, that evening, we both had our white 2016 Stanley Cup Champions T-shirts on.

So, again, I would like to say that Justin McKean is a very classy friend … and I would like to thank him for allowing me to talk about him in some of my blog posts over the past 5 1/2 years, including my 1,000th blog post.  Happy birthday, Justin!

Spring is now in full swing … and, before you know it, the month of April will be here.  Then, in just a few weeks, I will be celebrating my 34th birthday.  Just don’t ask me how I’ll be celebrating it just yet.  Fears of the Coronavirus may cause me to celebrate it at home; however, you will have to answer a question about my birthday plans in a blog post in April.
