For Real This Time
This is my last blogger post.  Not my last post, just my last post here.  At least for a while.  It's been a great ride but google has basically just let blogger sit here and it's a damn shame.  The built in networking used to be great.  Click the next blog...

Judgment Day
The internet got me again.  I was sitting here, reading the news, or at least what passes for news these days, when I came across an article titled Why I'm Keeping My Pregnancy A Secret From Work As Long As I Can.  That's a titillating title.  I wanted to k...

Another Monkey PSA

It's a Man's (Gaming) World
Following a link on Facebook led me to Youtube videos from an anti-feminist woman that amused me greatly.  Karen Straughan is a bit more wordy than I think she needs to be but she's spot on in her opinions and, more importantly, funny as hell.  When I found...

A little over 12 hours ago my step mother's heart beat for the last time.  Some people are lucky to have one caring mother to love them unconditionally in a life time.  I was blessed to have had two. When I say Linda loved unconditionally, I mean it.  Even ...

Let's Talk About Sex
I've been thinking a lot about sex lately.  I'm a man so I know, we're supposed to think about sex a lot.  But consider that I am a man and even I think it's a lot.  I may be going through puberty again.  It's not all about having sex, though those thoughts...
