Last night the missus and I went to see a play, "R. Buckminster Fuller - The History (and Mystery) of the Universe." I'm not sixteeen years old, so I hesitate to use the word "awesome," but the play was, well, awesome. For several reasons: Playwright D.S. Jacobs synthesized thousands of pages of...

The Orange Building is back.  Wait, I think the last one was The Green Building, but they accomplish the same thing.  They let the many workmen have a place to go that is not in a corner of my backyard!     Construction is on going and little Clayton's yard is a rock mess....

Unless you consider perilously suspended display lighting and clog-free guarantee toilets portals to romantic ambience, Lowe’s certainly is not the most date friendly place to be on a Friday night. But, alas, this past Friday Lowe’s is exactly where my husband and I found ourselves. There was no...

We are under construction. This is not the first time. And if you are a parent, you know that "construction" does not necessarily refer just to the building process. The first time we were "under construction," we did it ourselves, sledge hammers banging into plaster and horse...

Shaking the soft, but not limp hand of a billionaire, my first thought was, “So this is how the hand of a billionaire feels.” A hand capable of doing immense things by means of writing checks. A hand that could casually write a check for more than I will earn in my entire strenuous life. I suppose...
