I was always taught that all things are born and the destined to die. I don't think there has ever been a time in my life where the death of something made me overly sad.

Do I really need English as a second language? That is a question I had to ask myself shortly before I left work today. Why? Well, right before I was to go home for the day I got an e-mail from our Human Resources Department. It actually wasn't just sent to me, it was sent companywide.

This is for all the mothers who have sat up all night with sick toddlers in their arms, wiping up barf laced with Oscar Mayer wieners and cherry Kool-Aid... Read More
Have you ever been looking on Craigslist for something, find it, and when you get there to pick it up you find something else you hope is for sale? I have run across this situation on more than one occasion in the past. When that happens it usually hurts my wallet because I wasn't prepared to spend anything extra. Anyway, I had been in contact with an older gentleman here in Houston in regards to some antique Singer sewing machines he had up for sale. He agreed to let me come have a look and see if I was still interested. I felt the price was a bit high because they were in exceptional bad... Read More
