  • The Show (10/28/2011) - Just responded to the Facebook post: “What’s your favorite NMK show?” At first I thought that was an easy question, but as I typed “Les Miserables” I really got to thinking about what that meant. I think we all fall in love with different marching band shows for different reasons. …
  • A Clone Like Me (8/26/2010) - First off I would like to apologize to any of you who may be offended by my story. I understand that to some, the topic of cloning is one that is very sensitive and is a process best left in the hands of God. Be that as it may, this …
  • facial tattoos (11/15/2008) - Some days I feel like I have a tattoo on my forehead that says, “Please, tell me ALL of your problems.” Don’t get me wrong – family, friends, co-workers, I’ll listen to your problems as long as you need me to or at least I think I would. I haven’t …
  • the morning commute – deep thoughts (9/21/2008) - I once took a Literature and Culture course that discussed the sublime. According to dictionary.com, the sublime is “impressing the mind with a sense of grandeur or power; inspiring awe.” In the class, we discussed how the sublime was typically something vast and even frightening; this concept of the sublime …
  • Lily learns to code (3/19/2017) - TEST
  • 7 (11/24/2013) - I was going to post this on Facebook as a status update in response to the current meme going around but it seemed a bit long-winded for that forum. I posted a shortened, edited version there but here’s my response in it’s entirety. Shane Litz just gave me and ten …
  • Pet Peeves Never Die (11/24/2012) - So, I’m sitting at the drive through window flipping through Facebook updates on my phone to kill time while I’m waiting for my heart-attack-in-a-sack. I hear the window flung open accompanied by a grating little squeak as if the building itself can’t do anything more than utter a whimper in …
  • Match.com, You’re on Notice! (2/24/2012) - As an online marketing professional, I’ve been reading a lot of buzz about how Pinterest is the next big thing for social media. From the articles, I just wasn’t getting the the concept – pinboards where you pin stuff you love… Sounded simple enough but how could that compete with …
  • Christmas-a-la-commode (12/3/2011) - Christmas-a-la-commode, a photo by hobbit_fan_74 on Flickr. Apparently there’s an inside joke amongst the ladies in the office dealing with empty toilet paper rolls. This beauty of a tree was presented to my friend Christine in the cubicle next door. This is the most brilliant and creative Christmas tree I’ve …
  • HEAT (10/22/2011) - I decided to have a staring contest with Mother Nature this fall. I really didn’t want to have to start burning fuel oil to keep the house warm so I simply left the furnace turned off. In my home office and bedroom, I have a small space heater in each …
  • The Meandering Path (5/29/2010) - I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I made a blog post on here. Actually – I can.  It seems like I never have much spare time, and I don’t even have any kids yet to blame it on. Fortunately, I’ve got a four day weekend so I have …
  • Astronaut David A. Wolf 3 (4/15/2009) - It’s interesting how many times we completely overlook things until they are brought to our attention. I never noticed mobile offices or storage containers on jobsites until I started working for a company that specializes in those products. Now I see mobile offices and storage containers everywhere. Last weekend, I …
