Is This Website Really Necessary

January 24, 2013

There is a website out there for billionaires.  People with the money, but not the time to shop in person for extravagant lifestyle goodies.  The Billionaires Shop came to my attention because I work hard to find nonsense in this world.  Sometime the nonsense is overwhelming, sometimes I have to work to find it.  It’s… read more

The Kings Will Be No More

January 21, 2013

I’ve already said my farewell to the Sacramento Kings.  It seems the team is on it’s way to the great Northwest and the wetter climes of Seattle.

Winter…I See You.

December 5, 2012

The generic wall calendar in my office, which hangs from a tired, blemished, solo purple push pin, doubles as both my organizer and rolodex. It has rescued me from countless mental omissions. Throughout the course of a work day, I probably lift my head to it with the same frequency a carnival High Striker operator does to the bell… read more
