    If only happiness was so simple

    Cut your hair. I swear, cutting my hair is on a religious-level for me. It never fails to make me feel happier about myself. Granted, it’s almost automatic for me [Yes, I cut my hair myself], but it never ceases to amaze me how good about myself I feel. Anyways, I found out that there […]

    Alvin Ailey American Dance

    I almost forgot to write about this. Way back in 2006 when our realtor, Jack Wilkie, found out that Jen and I were patrons of the National Ballet, he implored us to watch the Alvin Ailey American Dance Company.

With the US shifting Daylight Savings Time (DST) a month back, I had to do some futzing around with the server […]

    My Orchid plant isn’t doing to well

    For those of you not aware, I’ve always been pretty good at taking care of plants. Something I picked up from my mother I guess. Prior to moving out of my parent’s house, I took care of most of the house plants. I even planted and raised an apple tree in the back yard back […]
