Today I’m going to go on a rant about books. Life doesn’t need to be all serious political/religious/mommy and daddy issue talk. Sometimes a blogger needs to find a release in the simpler things of life, the lighter topics- and today ...―
Today the Supreme Court takes on gay marriage. Here in Northwest Georgia the quiet consensus seems to be that it shouldn’t be allowed. I understand the fairly religious/conservative crowd’s point of view. Their religious views, their ...―
I have an unusual ego. I always have. It probably borders healthy confidence and a hint of arrogance. I try to avoid the ladder, but it comes out occasionally. I think it was all born out of my Mother treating me truly special growing up. See,...―
My wife’s “PeePaw” is 89 years old. Though I’ve barely spoken to him over the past decade I admire him. Once a year at Christmas parties or perhaps at a special event our paths cross and we exchange courtesies, but ...―
Last week I interviewed for two projects within my organization. I’m an IT consultant for a living, and before I am ever assigned to a project I usually have to be interviewed by the senior management on the project and perhaps even the ...―

A few months back I found myself in San Antonio, Texas working the evening shift with a bunch of IT geeks. I was there to train them on using some new tech then critique and improve their workflow. When I showed up, I hadn’t actually met any ...―
Not too long ago, I was a douchebag. Alright, I’m still a douchebag, but now I am self-aware of my douchiness, which changes everything. When I first got out of college, I went to work for a rural local government. I was one of the only ...―
