So Many Changes

This morning while driving to work I listened to music radio.  For many years I would turn on talk radio to hear the latest news and grumblings about all things political and happenings going on in Chicago.  I guess today was time to make a change, to go back to what I used to love… Continue reading So Many Changes

Sad Day Here – We said goodbye to our 1 in 2 Million

This is a good bye post and a post just for me to remember the best cat I've ever owned -- and I add to say ever KNOWN.  Hands Down.  Chloe came into our lives in July 2009 and has been a re-occurring feature here on the blog.

Our refrigerator heard us talking about replacing it.  I KNOW it heard us.  I mean, after all we were talking about it right in front of it.

There’s A Seinfeld Episode In This Somewhere – Look What Showed Up!

I think the Seinfeld episode is called “The Opposite”.  It’s the one where George tries to change his luck by doing everything that would be opposite from what he normally would do.  It is also the episode where Jerry discovers he is ‘Even Steven’.  Jerry throws a twenty dollar bill out the window to test… Continue reading There’s A Seinfeld Episode In This Somewhere – Look What Showed Up!
