Friday The 13th – What the Friggatriskaidekaphobia – More Snow!!!

Friday The 13th -
Fear, it is something  that can stop a man or woman in their tracks. Yes, fear can freeze you momentarily or it can cause a knee jerk reaction, fight or flight attitude. My Pun: Fair not? For fear itself is not fearful because the fear we have doesn't have to be fearsome if we just use some fairly simple phobia techniques...handling it we may farewell.
Today is Friday the 13th. It is a day that strikes fear in to many. It is also a day like any other day for many others. Fear of this day is called by two specific names

The unique wedding proposal that changed my life!
February 10, 2015 is 24 years since I asked Joan Winifred to marry me.  When she said yes, it was a good day, a very good day!  I got the whole thing on video long before every one had a way to record every second of every day in High Definition Video.

Back then, the camera was the size of a suitcase, and my friend (we'll call him Larry for privacy) wanted me,

Is Killing Giraffes Till They Are Extinct To Cure Aids REALLY WHAT IS HAPPENING?

Find Happiness: The Joy Of Giraffes

Giraffes Part 1|Giraffes Part 2|Giraffes Part 3
UPDATE: Published 2/6
Data due to be published in early in 2015 shows Africa’s giraffes are on a slow march toward extinction due to the pressures of poaching and habitat loss. Illegal hunting and human population growth have reduced the overall African giraffe population by roughly 40% over the past 15 years. Unlike the plight of some of Africa’s other iconic wildlife, like the mountain gorilla and the rhino, the giraffe’s decline has happened largely off conservationists’ radar. It’s a silent extinction - in some countries, only a few hundred giraffes remain – so there is an urgent need to act now before it is too late. There are numerous ways for people living outside of Africa to get involved in giraffe conservation efforts http://www.giraffeconservation.org


The Joy Of Giraffes
A Giraffe, have you ever seen one face-to-face? Or pet their soft, lush, fur coat. Or feed one from your own hands?? They are unquestionably one of the most amazing, beautiful creatures my family has had the privilege to enjoy, pet, and get our hands slobbered on while feeding them at

HIV-AIDS: The Giraffe In the Room!

Giraffes Part 1|Giraffes Part 2|Giraffes Part 3
The Giraffe In the Room!
I read the other day that "In Precisely 10 Years Wild Giraffes will be Extinct Due to HIV-AIDS." This is the most categorically idiotic and numskull idea. It's insensitive to HIV-AIDS victims... IF you take it out of context. If you love animals like me, you could also get mad that in 10 to 15 years Wild Giraffes Will Be Extinct. The subject had shock-value to get you to read the post...I'll say that! But later the subject line and post was deleted.

Think You Have A Stressful Job? Try Being The Groundhog Punxsutawney Phil

Punxsutawney Phil shadow: You’ve obviously lost touch with reality... I’m outta here!
Sign: Punxsutawney Phil Sees his shadow briefly
Caption: Have the courage to say what's on your mind.
As the waxing gibbous moon was setting on February 2, 1963 my mother was still having pain.  More specifically, birth contractions, since she was nine months pregnant with my oldest sister, her first child.  The sun rose early on that cold, New England morning. Rising over the horizon at 6:27 AM in a small town outside Boston...

The temperature was recorded 25 °F and the day not only start off cold, but it was foggy with freezing rain with a slushy-snowy mix. Ask my mother, if she remembers the cold or the rain or any of weather.  If Punxsutawney Phil had seen his shadow, I'm sure she will just tell you

BPhope 2015 Blogger

The offer!
I got an Email in early December that BP Hope was updating its site for 2015.  I thought it's been 4 years in April, Maybe I could draw the bloggers... I thought there was only 4 peers, I could come up with an idea for them so I offered:
"I would like to TRY and do something special for my 1st BPHOPE 2o15 post.  Since I'm a cartoonist, it should not be hard to figure out... Okay I'll spill the beans! I want to try to draw all the active 2015 BPHOPE Bloggers as a group pic."
Wow, every one said yes, but then life has a funny way of side-tracking you.  Good-intentions, procrastination,  work, bills, depression, frustrations, regressions. One day turns into 3 days, 3 to 7 days, then two weeks, then 3 weeks then 5 weeks...till I get an email from my BP Hope contact asking if I need more time.  My contact was set to launch the site but they were going to go with some one else if they had to.

Top 5 Favorite 2014 The Family Stew Cartoons

Top 5 Favorite 2014 The Family Stew Cartoons
Here are Mental Health Humor's top 5 "The Family Stew" cartoons. The Family Stew Cartoon series is drawn by me and about me Chato Stewart and about me. Yes, I may be best known for my Mental Health Humor cartoons, but this series grew out of it. It is the balanced of a blend of mental illness advocacy and my psychological disorders mixed with of course "family" issues. Yes, I am  a father, husband, and consumer and I draw from my own funny outlook on life...well at least, I think it's funny.

You can see just how much my drawing style has changed in 12 months with drawing this cartoon series The Family Stew. The bottom cartoon was drawn in January 20014.
