Sometimes part of my job is bursting somebody’s bubble. I really don’t like doing it, but I guess somebody has to. One such example was an e-mail I received the other day from a very nice couple who have been reading the blog for a long time. They are weekend campers and have a pop-up […]

By shopping at used furniture and consignment stores, and on Craigslist, we were able to completely furnish our new home quicker than we thought, and considerably under the budget we had set. The only things we still were not happy with were the refrigerator and the electric range that came with the place. Both had […]

My old man used to always say that we are all crazy in our own way, and as long as your crazy and my crazy don’t clash too much, we’ll get along just fine. My career as a small town newspaper publisher, along with some years working in law enforcement, convinced me that Dad was […]

Thank you everybody for the birthday wishes yesterday! I tried to reply to everyone individually, but there were nearly 600 on Facebook, not to mention over 100 e-mails. I would have to hire an assistant to get to everybody. You all really made me feel very special. So how did I spend my birthday? Dinner […]
