Milt’s summer hiatus, and “I only want the positives”: The secret to a lasting relationship without the heartaches, with guest expert Cynthia Brian

Friends, I will be taking the remainder of the summer off from my weekly blog posts. I may post the occasional piece, time permitting, but Mia and I have recently been engaged in an enterprise entirely unrelated to relationship counseling, one that we are finding both wildly fulfilling and quite time-consuming, thus I am simply … Continue reading

“A hero is anyone who has fought in war”, and a Memorial Day Special: Demetrius Toteras, Korea and the 1st Persian Gulf War

I’ve said this before but I’m generally not a fan of holidays and the pressure to get out and spend, our patriotic duty it would seem. Oh, I love Christmas and New Years and always will, but most of the others strike me as contrived (Valentine’s, MLK, Chavez, President’s Day…) and without great meaning. I’ll … Continue reading

Milt battles feel-good censorship and the Agelastes, and Getting back at your Ex: The Posting of Revenge Porn, along with Akasha the Psychic Soul Healer

Let’s talk email. Got an email, actually the second in 2 weeks, from a guy who has become a steady critic of The MiltnMia Show. Not that he doesn’t like what we do, it’s just that he feels we have veered far afield from where we had originally began. I’m not gonna paste the email … Continue reading

Clean shoves it down Milt’s throat, and Alone in a crowded room: Loneliness and being isolated from everything

Yesterday I was pleased to take a phone call from a guy I haven’t talked to in years, an old friend who once studied alongside me under Demetrius Toteras and who, for whatever reasons, had fallen off my radar screen. ‘Clean‘, as he calls himself now, is just that, clean, as he reports, clean of … Continue reading

My dad’s picture from eternity, and “Honey, I want to be a porn star!”: 50 Shades of Grey and married women getting into porn

Here’s an interesting tidbit that you might find…well, interesting: My father, John, died last year on January 8th. On Christmas Day, while we were gathering for what would be our last Christmas together, I took a few pictures of Pops around the tree (see below). Those would be the last pictures of my father before … Continue reading

Julius Caesar and the Ides of March, and my soul-mate: An open oral love letter to Mia, with guest expert, Lori ‘Minky’ Radcliffe

The Ides of March, friends, are upon us; beware! Indeed, one of history’s most inglorious moments took place in 44 B.C. in ancient Rome, when Julius Caesar was given his forewarning of death, and mocked it. Now, there remains some confusion over just what is meant by the ‘Ides of March’. Some have held it … Continue reading

My son pays me the ultimate compliment, “I can’t stop myself!”: The Cheating Gene found only in women, and thoughts on 50 Shades of Grey

I received perhaps the highest compliment I have ever gotten recently, and I’d like to share it with you, especially you parents: I was sitting outside the other day with my friend and partner, Vic, along with my youngest son, Orson, and the talk turned philosophical, particularly, how each of us viewed our impending deaths … Continue reading

“That donut keeps calling me!”: Addiction, Self-Control and Choosing who you want to be, with Christina Santini

Ah, the best laid plans of mice and men… My computer’s hard drive suddenly decided it had had enough this week, and thus my entire on-line existence was thrown into confusion. I got up to go to work earlier this week and found the computer dead, and nothing I or my tech friend could do … Continue reading

Cleaning up after Death, and the MiltnMia Show Valentine’s Day Special: Tips for developing a loving relationship

The business of Death is not pleasant, friends… That’s what we’ve been dealing with all week, tying up all my mother’s loose financial ends, which are, sadly, many. Thankfully, my sister, the executor of Mom’s estate, and I are in mutual agreement as to how to proceed, and I don’t expect any squabbles over money … Continue reading

My mother, Nancy, has passed on…

This has been a difficult several weeks, friends: My mother, Nancy, died on February 6th at app. 6:30 pm, after doctors put her on Comfort Care and removed all medical devices, including her blood pressure medicine; within a few minutes, she had passed. I’ll spare you the medical details but in essence, and typical of … Continue reading
