Situation Wanted

Well, why not? It is my website, after all, and I can get very reasonable advertising rates around here.

Odds & Ends

Who can keep up with how crazy the world is at this point? I’m serious. Of-course the world has always been crazy, but I really believe there’s an added edge these days, which brings to my mind an image of a train full of barking lunatics hurtling full speed towards a gorge spanned by a bridge that is busy collapsing.

And that’s my cheerful thought for the day. Related or otherwise, here’s a few odds: Continue reading “Odds & Ends” »
