I stepped out of the shower tonight to see a full-on illustration of what the phrase “farmer’s tan” really means. Let me tell you: it ain’t all that pretty. Of course, I should have expected no less as we spent the majority of this weekend out in the sun building a chicken coop (more on […]
I think tonight was the best night of American Idol so far this season. And I’m not just saying that because David Boreanaz was there … ‘Course he didn’t even speak but who needs him to. Sorry Tom Welling but I think you’ve lost your #1 spot in my eyes. Anyway, back to American Idol […]
I got a Wii Fit for my birthday back in October. My 35th birthday. I was pretty gung-ho about using it to get in shape again. What is it they say about best laid plans? One of the really cool (read with sarcastic tone) features of the Wii Fit is that it calculates your […]
I’ve been driving myself crazy lately trying to be a webmaster. I like to play around with design and can do a pretty good bit just simply through trial and error. I’ve determined that for someone like me who isn’t an expert in HTML but knows enough to get in trouble, the key is the […]
I remember back when I was in college and I worked in the main office of an auto parts company, my boss told me he rarely slept past 3:30 in the morning. I’ve always been a big fan of sleep, so this sort of stuck with me. Both he and his brother, who owned the […]

“I can’t think of one reason big enough for him to lie that’s small enough not to matter.” — Patrick (Casey Affleck‘s character), Gone Baby Gone.
I think Sharpies are to women what duct tape is to men. — Nicole O’Neal
That’s what Boy Genius said when he climbed into the van in the parking lot of the Wal-mart in Holly Springs, Mississippi. That was the “halfway” point at which we met Mema & Danny on Saturday to pick up the kids from their week away. I’d hugged him as soon as he got out of […]
“We are a people of many faiths, but we are a faithful people.” – Heather Wilson, Former Representative from New Mexico
