Vince Mazzie’s Birthday

Today is August 5, 2020.  I was born 57 years ago today to amazing parents Helen and Cosimo Mazzie.  Yes with a name of Cosimo I am Italian.

Today’s birthday is especially special since I never thought I would see my next birthday since I almost died of a stroke and heart attack on September 13, 2019.

I feel very blessed and grateful to God and all my friends.

I took the picture above today and I don’t think that I look to bad for my age and all I went through.  Although my daughter Riley thinks i have aged 10 years since September 2019.  LOL..

Today I spent my birthday getting my 2016 Mazda CX3 fixed at the dealer.  Somehow the bottom passenger molding fell off.  That was costly $650 dollars.  Oh well at least my car looks good again. I treat my car like my baby.

I then came home and spent a few hours in the pool.  Tomorrow back to work for short rest of the week.

I checked out my favorite truck today to the Chevy Colorado. It was almost 40K.  One day I will get one of them.  Its on my bucket list. 🙂

Well that is about it.  Also wanted to note my weight is 145 pounds and that is the thinnest.that I have ever been .  I have been eating all veggies and no red meat.

Well going to see what is up on Facebook and maybe instagram.

Feel free to hit me up on either.

My Stroke Symptoms The Night Before

It was September 12, 2019 when I woke up and started my day like any normal day.  I took our dog Izzy out to do her business and came in to get ready for work.

I went in to my office at First Data Merchant Services and worked as I normally would.  I went for a walk around the building and and felt pretty good all day.

When it was time to go home once I got home I realized that I forgot my cell phone at my desk.  I figured I would go back in later to pick it up.

After dinner I decided to go back in and drove about a mile and thought that my vision was kind of blurry so I turned around and thought I will just pick it up tomorrow.

I had no head aches but sometimes my eye site gets blurry depending on my blood sugar level.  I have type 2 diabetes.

As the night progressed it was time to go to sleep.  I sleep in a separate room from my wife since I snore and use a CPAP and she sleeps with the television on and I like it as quiet as I can have it be.

At 3:30 am I woke up on September 13, 2019 and was paralyzed with a stroke.  My next blog post will go into detail.

Thanks for reading,

Building And Changing Word Press Site

Working on my blog site.  Its been a challenge.  I like the theme but some of the things I wish it had was better directions. I have basically been adding and checking and adding and deleting and checking.

All in all its been fun.  I don’t know how appealing it will be.  I guess it will be a work in progress and eventually I will have it perfect. At least that is my plan.  

I think there is a lot I could do with HTML and such But I will keep playing.  It has been at least 2 years since I have worked with word press and it definitely has changed.  

Until the next time


Creating WordPress Website

I have not created a website for over 2 years.  My how things change.  I used to be pretty good at it and then I find this new WordPress and all things are so different.  The cool thing is.  I will figure it out and if its not SEO optimized or really cool looking that is OK.  This is for me and creating posts that I want to put out there with no expectations at all.

I remember writing posts and making sure I had 3 photos and keywords optimized and I am sure more stuff that I don’t even remember.  But that is no longer my purpose.  Its to post content.  Any content. What ever I feel like writing about.

I am sure once I start again it will all come back to me.  Especially when I post about my health issues and wanting to help give hope that if I can survive then you can too.  

So how about those Yankees?  Yes I live in PA but I am a die hard Yankee, Rangers Hockey, and Giant Football fan..

Until next time,


Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking out my blog.  I am not a professional writer and just a normal person who wants to talk about lots of things.  My blog is a work in progress.  I will be talking about everything from my recent health issues to sports and all in between.

My hope is my content will help everyone and also hope to have any comments whether you agree or disagree.  I enjoy good healthy banter.

Well that is about all for now.  I am working on my website to make it look more presentable.  But I guess my content is worth more then looks.  LOL
