Stodghill Says So

An opinionated posting on a variety of subjects by a former newspaper reporter and columnist whose daily column was named best in Indiana by UPI. The Blog title is that used in his high school sports predictions for the Muncie Evening Press.

At the age of 18 I was a 4th Infantry Division rifleman in the invasion of Normandy, then later was called back for the Korean War. Put in a couple of years as a Pinkerton detective. Much of my life was spent as a newspaper reporter, sports writer and daily columnist. Published three books on high school sports in Ohio and Indiana. I write mystery fiction for Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine and others. Three books, Normandy 1944 - A Young Rifleman's War, The Hoosier Hot Shots, and From Devout Catholic to Communist Agitator are now available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other booksellers. So are four collections of short mysteries: Jack Eddy Stories Volumes 1 and 2, Midland Murders, and The Rough Old Stuff From Mike Shayne Mystery Magazine.

It's Alright, It's Okay

If asked to pick my favorite current TV show I would answer in a heartbeat, the BBC production New Tricks. If you haven't seen it you are missing out on a real treat.
It revolves around four great characters - oddballs every one of them - played by some of Britain's finest actors. Three of them are retired police officers, detectives. Their boss is a hard-bitten female who comes close to being driven off the deep end trying to keep them in line. She can't, of course.
The song introducing the show has become quite popular, yet BBC has not released it on a CD. Because of this, fans have typed out the lyrics and posted them on the Internet, proving once again that you can find anything imaginable on the web if you take time to look. Like so many others, I love the song. Unfortunately I can't sing it for you so here is the way it goes:

It's alright, it's okay,
Doesn't really matter if you're old and grey.
It's alright, I say it's okay,
Listen to what I say.
It's alright, doin' fine,
Doesn't really matter if the sun don't shine.
It's alright, I say it's okay,
We're gettin' to the end of the day.
High tech low tech, take your pick,
Cos' you can't teach an old dog
a brand new trick.
I don't care what anybody says,
At the end of the day,
There's no place that I can't find,
A drink or two to ease my mind.

So there you have it: my themesong. The words I live by.
