Sage Advice

Something I’ve noticed after going through an 18-month divorce is that I am now, apparently, an expert on the subject. I find this sort of funny because I hardly consider myself an expert. I read a great deal of articles during my own divorce. It shouldn’t be any surprise that most of them basically say the same thing: If you …

Bubba’s Still Got It

I had forgotten how much I enjoy listening to Bill Clinton speaking passionately on his beliefs. He isn’t even running and I still want to vote for him. Now, Republicans out there can get all huffy if you like, but I encourage you to listen to this speech with an open mind. You don’t have to admit anything outwardly, but …

Context — It’s What’s For Dinner

Not having a reason to watch regular TV anymore does have it’s perks — I get to avoid the onslaught of political ads this time around. It’s not that I’m not paying attention, it’s just that all that most folks need to know about both candidates has already been pretty clearly spelled out. So that means the American people — …

Tragedy in Aurora

Twitter is afire with comments about the fact that nutjob was armed with an AR-15. Yes, America, this weapon is perfectly legal to get.

Netflixing

As I’ve grown older and gotten involved in a myriad of activities, I’ve found that I no longer have the time or inclination to watch a lot of television. At least that’s what I tell myself. The truth is that I don’t watch TV like I did ten years ago. I suppose becoming attached to programs only to have them …

So Let’s Just Get This Out Of The Way

The past two years have been pretty life-altering. After 15 years of marriage, the wife and I decided to end it. I won’t go into the grisly details, but if 18 months of divorce proceedings is any indication, it wasn’t exactly fun times in happy land. Thought it says on the final paperwork that we have joint custody of our …

Bringing It Back

Yeah, I know it’s been a while since I’ve written anything. Truth be told, there’s been a lot of changes over the past couple of years and I’ve been extremely busy with them. But I miss writing. Good fucking GOD do I miss writing. So expect a bit more from me. There’s a lot to tell you about. What will …
