  • The String

    The string gets pulled in all directions. Each tugging it. Each trying to get a certain part of it. None of them want to give up. They could all let go but they don’t. They grasp harder. They try different… Read More ›

  • Will Run (more or less) for Beer!

    I just ran part of a mile. It was epic. It was horrible. It was a literal pub crawl. I realize that running part of a mile isn’t overly impressive but, for me, it’s a major accomplishment. I’m out of… Read More ›

  • Independent Audit: A Disaster Film

    I’ve always wanted to write a screenplay. I’ve had a lot of ideas but none have come to fruition thus far. With the Memorial Day weekend having just past I’ve been inspired, yet again, to write a screenplay but I need… Read More ›

    I read an article the other day that I shouldn’t have; I know better than to click on stories about new medical discoveries. It never ends well. Yet, despite my carpel tunnel, I managed to click on the link like… Read More ›

  • Daddy Ate a Little Lamb

  • Rapping up the Month: March

    2Pac. Tupac. Toopac. Regardless of how you spell the late great 2Pac’s name it’s hard to say anything bad about his music. It was raw. It was full of emotion. It continues to be released despite that fact that he died nearly 20… Read More ›
