Thanks to global warming or something, this winter has dragged on far to long and far too cold for my own liking. With that in mind, my family is temporarily evacuating to the tropics. For the most part it’ll be an “off the grid” vacay, but check that Twitter feed up there to the left […]

Happy New Year’s Eve! At some point in the next day or so, this site will be switching to a new server. Huge thanks to Mike Lasalle for his expertise and efforts in making the change. We’ve been through this drill before. Sometimes it takes a day or two for things to settle back to […]

Merry Christmas! And contrary to how it may seem, I’m not dead. Yet. Last Thursday night we got a nasty winter storm, and then on Friday night an ice storm came through and caused some serious damage. Much of the area remains without power and downed trees make some places look like a tornado blew […]

Today is my final day working at my job of 20 years… and five months, but who’s counting? (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, click here) I plan to take somewhere in the neighborhood of a week off to get some rest after burning the candle at both ends for so long, though […]

Ok, here’s what happened: This domain name is registered through Dotster, and somehow the nameservers (that point the domain on which servers to go to in order to access the site when you try to load it) got deleted from Dotster. Problem was, I lost the primary and secondary nameserver addresses. So I had to […]

Any of you who I’ve had the pleasure of having as “regulars” here have probably noticed that I rarely talk about my personal life. I’ve always wanted the focus to be on the issues of the day and an occasional fun aside instead of things like what I had for breakfast or the fact that […]

A very merry Christmas to everybody! I’ll be spending the day with the family, and hope you all get a chance to do the same. The kids have already torn through the gifts, and in a while my wife and I will be trying to make the perfect prime rib. Fingers crossed. But if it […]

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, especially our band of regular readers and commenters who have helped keep the conversation interesting, intelligent, snarky, enlightening, funny, pointed and genuinely entertaining. It’s been our busiest year ever, and the year isn’t even over yet. 2013 will bring some changes, and for the better. I’ll keep you posted […]

Mitt Romney has finished his acceptance speech, and I’m trying to get the kids’ stuff packed up for a mid-morning departure for a couple days off the grid. Well, maybe not entirely off the grid. I’m bringing my laptop just in case Joe Biden says or does something incredibly stupid that I can’t avoid commenting […]

Big Hollywood delivers the sad and stunning news that Andrew Breitbart, a courageous and relentless voice for conservatism and against out-of-control government, as well as a pro-life advocate, has passed away. He was 43. Prayers for Andrew’s wife and four children. Twitter is going bonkers with tributes, but the word those who knew Breitbart are […]
