Want a pretty good primer on how the heck we ended up in this financial mess?  Straight from the mouths of the horses involved? The Giant Pool of Money Sit back.  It’s a wild ride.  If your jaw doesn’t drop at least once, you weren’t paying attention.

Ever have one of those days where, no matter how much you fundamentally love your job, you really just teeter on the edge of walking out?  You know you will regret this in the morning, but at that very moment in time, it just seems like such a powerful idea that you really have to […]

That is the news on the leg front. I had my third x-ray this morning.  The orthopedist’s reaction was “Well, huh.” No, there still is no visible bone growth.   Nothing has changed.  Nothing.

I am going to echo something that Sheila posted on her blog the other day.  I don’t care what decision you make in the upcoming election.
