Thunderous Boom Room

I work in a hospital. Hospitals are funny places. Subjects that don’t get discussed in CPA offices are freely talked about in hospitals. I don’t want to say it’s entirely like M*A*S*H, where you laugh to keep from crying, but it’s along that vein. Long story short… There are three bathrooms available to the general …

Quote of the Day 3/37/14

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. -Kahlil Gibran Doesn’t that just remind you of spring? Can’t you almost feel the sun on your back and the grass under the soles of your feet? As this winter drags on and on, I …

Quote of the Day 3/26/14

Now if you’re going to win any battle you have to do one thing.  You have to make the mind run the body.  Never let the body tell the mind what to do.  The body will always give up.  It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night.  But the body is never tired …

Taco Tuesday

We just got home from one of the most brilliant fundraisers I’ve ever been to. Modern Woodmen of America helped Schenck High School host Taco Tuesday.  The hope is to raise $2,500, because if we do, Modern Woodsmen will match the funds. The students of the school (Opal Myrick Elementary included), created art projects to …

Caught Staring

Tonight is Taco Tuesday at the elementary school. It’s a big fundraiser for the school, and the kids take advantage of the increased traffic to show off art work and other projects. They really put themselves into it. With that said, Liv has been working hard to make these woven, rubber band bracelets to sell. …

The Fourth Hole

I graduated high school weighing in at 190 pounds. I was pretty lean. I’ve always been quite strong (muscular), and as a result have always been heavier than I appear. I gained the Freshman 15. And the Sophomore 10, and the Third Year 10, etc., etc., until I graduated college in 2001 at 245 pounds. …

That’s Some Good TV Right There

We watch a lot of television. And by watch, I mean pay some attention to while fiddling with our iPads and folding laundry in the evenings. There are shows that everyone likes (Good luck, Charlie) and shows that are more selective in their audiences, like Pawn Stars (Liv calls it “that show where people by …

Ryan Sucks

Is your name Ryan? No? Then you might not fully understand. No matter how clearly I feel I’ve enunciated my name when we first meet, you will think my name is Brian.  Brian’s a real name.  A familiar name.  Not Ryan. In all fairness to my mother, she was expecting a girl (as the story …

Lessons Learned At Pinewood Derby

Pinewood Derbies are fun.  At least for the kids. The point, for the uninitiated, is to build a 5 ounce wooden car, from the block provided, that races down a 25-ish foot track faster than all the other kids’ cars.  Given the nature of wood carving, drilling, hot gluing, and the fine art of grinding …

What’cha Reading?

I love all things pop culture. I can’t even lie about it. I pride myself on knowing a little bit about EVERYTHING!  But living in the sticks with three kids who go to bed at 8:00 doesn’t leave a lot of time for museums, theater, or fine dining, but it’s custom made for the guy …

I’d Love Your Opinion

I love trolling the internet looking for new and thought-provoking things.  Usually, I just need a temporary distraction from the real world, and a stupid meme or cool picture is enough to give me my cyber-fix. Two videos have made themselves known to me recently, and I’d love your opinion on each of them. Video …
