The Blueberry Festival is Coming to Argos!Read More

Yesterday, the Pilot News made a post on their Facebook page in reference to the Blueberry Festival potentially moving from Plymouth to Argos. Instantly, a variety of negative comments came pouring in that ranged from “foolish” and “disaster” to “terrible”…

A Post for a Brisk Monday MorningRead More

This brisk Monday morning, I finally decided to take a few moments to write a quick blog post. It’s been so long since I last wrote something. I have a bad habit of abandoning my blog for extended periods of time. It’s not procrastination, but rather an ov…

Of Moonshine and MemoriesRead More

Have you seen the video of people drinking moonshine for the first time? It come across my Facebook feed a couple of times over the Thanksgiving holiday, but I neglected to actually watch the video until I got to work on Monday morning. Yes, I have my prio…

Justin Bieber - the Fake Bad BoyRead More

So for my first blog post of the year (yes, I’m running a little behind), I’d like to delve into my thoughts on this Justin Bieber kid. Am I the only one that things that all of these “bad boy” stunts are some sort of pre-planned publicity maneuvers to try…

Wal-Mart Pissed Me Off for the Last TimeRead More

After my most recent experience at Wal-Mart, I’ve decided it’s in my best interest to cut all future ties with the retailer in an effort to preserve my sanity. I hadn’t been in there since I picked up my blood pressure medication a month ago. I really don’…

Jobs & JobsRead More

Tonight I finally sat down and decided to do something I have apparently not done in quite some time – write a blog post. I haven’t written anything since the beginning of February, so it’s probably a good idea that I put a few thoughts down and clear my m…

Elitist Fast Food WorkersRead More

For centuries, it would seem that a person’s worth is somehow tied to their social status. That social status is usually tied to how much money that person makes in their career or how much material wealth he may possess. The ones with more money tend to d…

Cold FeetRead More

Winter weather has definitely come early! Needless to say, I'm not ready for this. Thankfully, I can just lay in my bed under my nice warm blankets while I write this blog post.

Christmas DifficultiesRead More

As the Christmas cards come flowing into my mailbox, I’m forced into the realization that the holiday is fast approaching and I have yet to do much shopping. It’s typical for me. Most years I wait until Christmas Eve. I suspect that this year won’t be much…

Nowhere to Be FoundRead More

The beauty of America is that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, no matter how wrong or ill-informed it may be. Freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution allow people like me to write stuff in this blog and share my thoughts with the world. The probl…

You Complete MeRead More

In the wide world of web design, a completed project is virtually unattainable. With the ever-changing Internet, websites are constantly changing and evolving. In my business, we prefer say that a project has been “delivered” rather than completed.

No More MondaysRead More

As I lay here in bed, I have to wonder why I'm awake at 3 am. Unfortunately, it seems like a routine anymore. I would love to actually sleep the whole night through and wake up in the morning feeling energized and refreshed. That's how is supposed to work,…

No Black Friday for MeRead More

I’m certain that some of my friends are probably throwing a few elbows and jostling for that “sweet deal” over at Wal-Mart right about now. Today is Black Friday – that most celebrated of holidays. The day we stuff our shopping carts with stuff the day aft…
