Politics 2016 .  This is the way the sausage gets made. Change / Politics / Popped Culture / Uncategorized

Voters Repelled by Seeing How the Sausage Gets Made What do Las Vegas, Christmas lights and dive bars have in common? They look much better at night.

Facebook Needs a Handle Change / Popped Culture / Technology / Uncategorized

If I’m Mark Zuckerberg – I’m Pissed They used to call what we do advertising. Then people started to double-down on the fancy terms to make it sound like more than it is.

My Dogs are not Drones Popped Culture / Real Life / Uncategorized

They poop where they please.  I pick it up. This probably isn’t the post to write immediately after changing my slogan from “Partially informed, totally opinionated” to “Today is good.  Tomorrow will be even better.” I made that change because I really do feel better about the world today.

Forever Young? Popped Culture / Real Life / Uncategorized

The Six Things I do to Fight “Old”. The Arizona Republic wrote an article about the Baby Boom Generation last week.
