Hail to the King

Hail to the King

Last night I watched as President Obama did something which deeply disturbed me. I wasn’t bothered by his suggestion to allow the illegally here parents of American children the right to stay in the country. Nor wanting to allow children born elsewhere and raised here to stay. I support both. The problem is, I don’t agree with HIM making those choices.

(In)sanity with a song

(In)sanity with a song

You have this song in your head. It’s making you absolutely insane because you cannot place it. You try humming it to people, hoping someone can help.

She was, of course, complaining about the text.

The Deed is Done

I just got the confirmation that my MBA Master’s thesis / degree capstone has been graded and approved.

There is still some graduation paperwork to be done by the school, and some official graduation date will be set, but this is the day that matters to me.

After today, I regain many hours of my week.

Until next time at least.

Vaya con Dios James Garner

Vaya con Dios James Garner

I love James Garner. I grew up with a mother who adores him, and learned to love him early on. What’s not to like? He’s handsome, charming, kind, and modest.
