Back to work!

My wife and I are different.  If it wasn’t apparent to me before now, it became clearer this week. Yes, she's smarter, kinder, and more loving. She's friendly to everyone she meets. She's beautiful inside and out. Yea, yea, we know about all of those things, while I check none of those boxes, but I'm... Continue Reading →

Remembering The Beatles

Sixty years ago today, on February 25, 1963, The Beatles released their first single, Please Please me in the United States. Many have come after them, but few have had the influence of the Beatles. Their music still has a sway and power over people of all ages. I can’t think of a better way... Continue Reading →

Low-down, cheatin’ dirty dog

I felt like I was cheating.  I felt like I should be wearing a large scarlet letter A on my chest for "Adulterer." At the same time, though, I could help but ask myself out loud, "was it really cheating?" Nah, I tried to convince myself as I reached over and gave her another rub.... Continue Reading →

Content worth checking out!

In my last job, I had an hour-long commute. On a really bad day, the commute could take up to an hour-and-a-half. I took some back roads but the closer I got to work, the more congested and the tougher the drive got. The job came with its share of stressors too. Okay, it came... Continue Reading →

The U.S. celebrates Presidents' Day on Monday. The federal holiday was originally created to recognize President George Washington, but is used now to celebrate all U.S. presidents, past and present. For most people, it’s a three-day holiday. The holiday serves as a great chance to remember some of our bravest, courageous leaders. I couldn't choose a few... Continue Reading →

Grumpy old man

You have Oscar the Grouch? Who doesn’t like Oscar, the lovable grump who lives in a trash can on Sesame Street. There’s the two critics from The Muppet Show, Statler and Waldorf, best known for their cantankerous opinions and penchant for heckling.  People of a certain age, remember Archie Bunker from All in the Family. He most... Continue Reading →

The city that loves you back

When the Kansas City Chiefs kicker kicked the football through the uprights on Sunday winning the Super Bowl against the Philadelphia Eagles, I started getting the teasing text messages from coworkers and distant friends. The gist of the messages: “Oh boy, watch out, Philadelphia is going to burn now. The fans are going to go... Continue Reading →
