18 Candles

      No Comments on 18 Candles

Over the years I’ve heard many a parent say “when (insert name of child here) turns 18 they can do whatever they want”.    Really? Really?

      No Comments on The Bar Just Keeps Getting Lower

I had really hoped that between the public backlash against the January 6th riots and Joe Biden being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States that some semblance of normalcy could come back to American politics.  That we’d stop having to deal with friends and relatives who had bought into some of the most ridiculous conspiracy theories… Read more »
