27 July 2011

2 Comments

Finally…a request to review something that is a little different and a company that made it not only easy to work with, but pleasant! Was contacted a few weeks ago by Easy Canvas Prints to see if I was interested in reviewing their product.  I checked out the website (very easy to navigate, as an aside), and […]

Comments Off on Vaccines: An Illustration…

This post is just an illustration. I’m not going to try to persuade, because I fully support informed consent–where people/parents are given the risks/benefits in whole and allowed to choose, and legally required. But that virtually never happens…and I believe it is in large part because of the money behind the pharma industry. Again, this […]

No, not like THAT. Sheesh…thinking like that made even the baby in the pic above do a facepalm. But looks like for 2 weeks in August, we’ll be hosting two students either from China or China and VietNam, depending on what’s decided. They’ll be here with a group for a kind of language and culture […]

This afternoon, my internet went down. Well, actually that’s what we assumed. See, we’d all left the house (which also houses my business with my Business Class internet, and I got a call from my wife when she returned. Got home, power cycled the modem a few times without change. So called up my Business […]

This past weekend, Sammy and I headed up toward Bellingham for some one-on-one time, some camping, and some sea kayaking. As it turned out, the weather wasn’t exactly on our side. We got to the campground late Friday afternoon, got set up, ate, relaxed, and went to bed. Then it rained. Pretty much the rest […]

Comments Off on Leadership, Obama-Style…

Yes, I am going to go there. This is a political post. But as much as I want to comment, there’s little need. The President’s words speak for themselves today. So without further adieu, here they are: “I’m not going to get into specifics.” And even better, here’s what he thinks of the American people: […]

Social media is funny sometimes. Not funny ha-ha so much, but funny weird, as Joshie would say (he stole that bit from Backyardigans). Anyway…on Empire Avenue, in my index (I’m currently President of the “Family and Children” index) mentioned a webinar of some sort that he was doing by the title of Parenting Made Easy. […]
