Shapeshifting

Today was my first visit to a “regular” doctor in two years.  It was time to get my stitches removed and I combined it with my not-so-annual physical (hey, when you don’t pay for insurance, it’s economical to combine appointments).

I have wonderful memories of Valentine’s Day.  For a long… Read more »

When did this turn into work?

Blog posts were temporarily disabled due to a still unexplained interruption in my access to my website.  I apologize to all you deprived fans out there.  Now, read on… Having a successful couple of weeks recently in making great progress on “What Next?”, I had a moment for some introspection to contrast the style and… Read more »

“Quirk week” ends, of course, with a quirky finish on a quirky day.  Now, read on… If you’re looking for a bevy of blonde jokes here, you’ll have to scrounge around the web further.  Today we’re going to discuss my odd claim that I am one gentleman that does not prefer blondes. I would say,… Read more »
