I’m going to geek out a little and ramble, so please bear with me. Today is an important day – my son (12) and I are going to see Paul McCartney live in concert. He doesn’t know yet, but I think he’ll flip out when he finds out. I […]
Yesterday (on Father’s day, no less), I spent early morning digging up a tiny little grave in our suburban garden for a tiny family member who just passed away in his sleep – Dusty the cat. Some Sunday morning – hard to beat that memory! But let me rewind a […]
So here we are. November 4th, after 10pm, Monday night. Too late to plan a marketing strategy, too late to recruit team members. I remember just yesterday it was April and I made a mental note that right after the next long weekend I’ll start asking people whether they want […]

Hi again. You did read the first part before getting here, right? About me getting a fully-electric vehicle, so I can feel all ethical and moral about the environment? Well, here comes the most surprising discovery – which didn’t hit me until I was behind the wheel for a few […]
