Two weeks back, my father and sister traveled to Maryland. My father just recently bought a franchise, and since my sister would be managing it, the company asked that they both be there. During the flight back, something happened which I feel is worth mentioning.
People at work know I’m a blogger. People that read my blog may know that, by profession, I’m a technical writer. Yesterday, someone at work thought I would find the following comic both funny and applicable. I did.
Alright, this was supposed to be a much longer post, but — darn it! — I didn’t save it and it apparently went bye bye. So instead, here’s a short list and one sentence short overview of the books I’ve plowed through in the past two two weeks.
You may be wondering why I haven’t been writing all that much recently, at least not the deep, well thought out works of non-fiction literature you come here to enjoy. (At least, in my imagination you’re wondering why I haven’t been writing.) I feel I owe an explanation of that, and finally I feel like… Read more EVERYBODY PANIC! No, Wait, That’s Just Me

It was the hosting company’s fault. On the bright side, they did upgrade my bandwidth and storage, which really does nothing… Read more Site Problems Solved
You’ll have to pardon the lack of updates as of late. A recent set of events, including travel, family, and other personal (health-ish) issues have drained the writing juices for the time being. I’ll be posting a few educational videos and a few links for the next few days, maybe even a few punny jokes,… Read more Taking a Break
Alright, I’ll admit: I’ve been on the movie kick lately. Actually, The Wife’s been on a movie kick lately, and of course, I’m forced to watch.
