I decided that, if I am going to get my blogs written, I need to do it before I get too tired to think at the end of the day. It only took me 6+ months to figure it out (lol), but I am thinking it may be possible to get this licked. It was ... Read more

It has been a very interesting last 24 hours. I was laid low by a bug that hit like a proverbial bus. One minute I was fine, the next minute I was dizzy, nauseus, and had a pounding head. I had to leave work early (which I never do) to get mysel... Read more

Life has a funny way of creeping up on you and poking you in the middle of your back with a sharp stick sometimes. That is the way it was when I woke up this morning. I knew it in the back of my mind that it was the last Sunday before goin... Read more
