It’s been seven years since I originally closed on my house. Hard to believe. Would I do it all again? Sure. But I’d have my ducks in a row.

All the typical answers came up- fireman, policeman, salesman, doctor, lawyer, etc. David was being uncharacteristically quiet, so the teacher asked Him about his father. “My father’s an exotic dancer in a gay cabaret […]
I was having a conversation today with someone regarding how to grow a church. It takes more than just tithes, time & talent. We came to some conclusions: (1) People like visible, hands-on goals. If you want to improve the look of the church, with say windows, carpeting or a roof, state your goal loud […]
I’m full of good Mongolian BBQ. Tink did some shopping, and now we’re back home. Wondered why the bloody place was like an oven, until I realized the thermostat hadn’t been reseated properly since we did all the painting. Live and learn. AC is now working I’ve got so much on my mind, I don’t […]

A woman meets a gorgeous man in a bar. They talk, they connect, they end up leaving together. They get back to his place, and as he shows her around his apartment, she notices that his bedroom is completely packed with sweet cuddly teddy bears: hundreds of cute small bears on a shelf all the […]

Over at “Wake Me On Judgment Day” Dave stole a topic that is interesting. If you could go back and talk to your 25 year old self, what would you say? 1. Get OUT of that relationship. NOW. Not tomorrow. It’s for your own good. 2. You’ll be buying a house in a few years. […]

that the Holy Union that I had started to plan earler this year basically withered and died. One person didn’t know, however, and I received a package in the mail today from this person (who has, unfortuantely, to remain unnamed). They didn’t know it was called off.
