Rocketing Into Spring!
The next few months are....well, let's just say that I'll probably even be less present online than I am currently. But here are some great opportunities to catch me face-to-face. I've been working on my calendar, and over the next few months, I'll be spend...

A Month Of My Online Shenanigans
It's that time once again - time to look at various other writing and mentions of me online. Why? Because it provides a great excuse for me to get with the linking....and to build my search presence. First, I served as election judge last Tuesday.... and yo...

The Ides of March - British Style
Normally, I've done rather lame jokes for the Ides of March , but here are two really cool video "celebrations" of this anti-holiday. The first is Up Pompeii , a series I watched without my parents' approval. On before WTTW would show cheesy movies as part ...

Eight Years Ago This Month....
Sunset over 64th & Pulaski ...things leading up to the move were a blur: so much so that I don't recall what happened in what order. With my impending move from St. Louis back to Chicago, I had left an extremely dysfunctional work environment. (One thing I ...

Live Long and Prosper: Remembering Leonard Nimoy
Photo by Gage Skidmore To say that I was a Star Trek fan in my younger days is an understatement - it was one of the few shows which my father and I could watch together. (Trust me, ninety-nine percent of the time we were arguing). I can still quote whole c...
