Well, I’m buried in work and a bit of a health issue…so not much posting these days. Sorry about that. I know your heart is broken and bleeding at the loss of my brilliant, thrilling, life-defying posts. LOL! I’ll try to pop in as I can.

Evolution of Dance

If you’ve ever wondered about the evolution of dance or just want to see something funny and well done, watch this YouTube offering.

Now come on. Admit it. You laughed out loud at least twice. I did.


I heard a great definition of tact today.

Tact: The ability to make somebody feel at home…when you wish they were.

Post That!

I’m sitting here writing a blog post that I can’t post to my blog. (Isn’t English postilious!) My Internet connection has been down for about three hours. I sent some emails a little before nine and right after that everything went dark.

At least this didn’t happen in the middle of the day when I [...]

Jimmy Stewart Stamps Almost Here

Last October, I posted that the U.S. Postal Service was going to issue a Jimmy Stewart stamp. I was at the post office a week and a half ago and the surly postal employee couldn’t tell me when the stamps would be available.

We’ve been under a Tornado Warning the past hour and I have to admit, it’s a very uncomfortable feeling! (For those not in the U.S. a Warning means a tornado or funnel cloud has been spotted. A Watch means the conditions are right for a tornado, but none have been seen. I don’t know if [...]

It’s National [...]

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Last weekend I went with a friend to see HP and the Order of the Phoenix, the fifth movie in the series. It was very odd watching a movie of the fifth book after reading the seventh book. Several times I thought, "Oh no…that character dies!" A bit of an odd reaction to a movie [...]
