Suggestions Please…

I must admit, I have not been out of my house much since March. It not so much fear of getting ill. I just have been working from home, and have not had much of a reason to go out. While I have been in my self-imposed exile, I have done some blogging. I have also enjoyed listening to podcasts, watching Netflix, and doing some reading.

When it comes to reading, I generally enjoy historical works, biographies, and some fiction. The other night I started reading American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer. He was a theoretical physicist who was known as “the father of the atomic bomb.” So far I have enjoyed reading this book. I love that it blends biography and history all into one. Plus, I enjoy reading anything related to World War II, as this is one of my favorite periods in history.

I also enjoy reading about the Vietnam War, and about the music and culture of the 1960’s. I think I have read every book there is about Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, and the Beatles. However, I know there is more out there I haven’t read.

Also, as noted above, I enjoy podcasts. My favorites are those having to do with history, true crime, and comedy. Some podcasts I enjoy are “Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend,” “The Conspirators,” “Ridiculous History,” and “American Scandal.” At this point, you might be asking, “Why is he telling all of this?” That is where you come in actually.

I’d enjoy it if you sent me some suggestions on books you think I might enjoy, or some podcasts you think are good. Leave me a Facebook comment if you are reading this from my page. You can also send me a comment through my blog page. I am curious to see what you all are reading and listening to these days. You might help me discover some hidden gem I never knew was out there.

I am a 43 year old male who was born with spina bifida and hydrocephalus. I have been married to my incredible wife Amanda for 7 years. We live in Illinois and both work in government jobs. I enjoy reading, writing, and watching Chicago Cubs baseball. I also enjoy the absurdity that daily life often brings, especially to those with disabilities. I try to see the humor in these situations. If you are offended by the use of the word “crippled” in the title of this blog please read the first post. I don’t like the word crippled and have never considered myself as such. Furthermore, I have never wanted to stand out from others. However, my intent is to show how humor has helped me deal with the hardship of disability. Likewise, I want to show others how full a life one can lead, even if you happen to be disabled. The use of the word “crippled” for the title is meant to be a bit of irony.
