2 interruptions an hour means you are never getting done. That explains so much about my life.


On this day in 1987 a young sorority coed ran into a freshman year friend at a frat party, and invited him to her sorority formal. He said yes, then remembered his girlfriend the next day and set me up on a blind date instead.

We've been married for 27 years.

I bought my wife baseball tickets for Valentine's Day and got away with it by having the mascot for the local minor league team show up in person at her work to deliver the tickets, along with a rose.

She bought me beer. I totally won twice today :)

Someday we'll look at giving 13-year olds smart phones like we look at giving 13-year olds cigarettes.

I'll never stop loving Web 1.0. The copyright date on this site is 1997.

Linux Mint 17.3 to 18 upgrade went perfectly. Yes, I am a little behind on OS updates.

With insulin pump supplies retail cost of my wife just not dying from diabetes is $40K per year.

"In 1996, when Eli Lilly debuted its Humalog brand of insulin, the list price of a 10-milliliter vial was $21. The price of the same vial is now $275."

My wife's insulin is $400 a vial and she needs 4-5 a month. Do the math. El Lilly and Novo Nordisk are criminal enterprises.


I wrote a blog post about China and US trade, didn't mention Trump at all, but did work in Drivin N Cryin.
