I’m not going to apologize for my desire to buy trash magazines and catch up on celebrity gossip. I realize it’s not the most intellectually stimulating reading material.

The Ark

November 3, 2011

This year Drew’s class is raising money for a charity. The first week they did this he wouldn’t give the money I had given him to his teacher.

The American Dream

September 10, 2011

People have said that real estate prices are falling at a slower rate, progress? I think not. It seems like no matter how it is spun, the bottom line is the real estate industry still stinks.
