            Snows Coming, Time to Panic!

            Screen Shot 2013-02-09 at 10.37.41 AM

            Just yesterday I was talking with a friend about how irrational people become when snow is on the way. Today a blizzard is striking Boston. It’s very interesting watching people in different parts of the country clear the shelves of different specific items out of habit. When I lived in the D.C. area the run was on toilet paper and ...

                Apparently I’m Allergic to Coca Cola. My First Trip in an Ambulance.


                I had a very adventurous day yesterday. It looks like I’m probably one of the small group of people that’s allergic to the original or classic Coca Cola. The good news is that if I’d had “Ride to hospital in ambulance” on my bucket list I could have checked that one off. The bad news is I wasted a perfectly ... Read More »

                  Need Help With Debt? What Would Perry Mason Do?

                  Raymond Burr as Perry Mason.

                  I’ll admit it, I’m a Perry Mason junkie. I’m currently in the process of watching all the Perry Mason shows from the late 1950s. For those not familiar with Perry, he was a Los Angeles attorney that seemed to thrive in taking on the the most desperate and hopeless cases to faithfully represent his clients. This week I’ve been curious ... Read More »

                      Nice Take on Local Context of Middle Eastern Attacks Against the U.S.

                      Ready to Collapse

                      An interesting article by Ed Husian, a senior fellow for Middle Eastern studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, got me thinking and does a fine job of helping people to put recent Middle Eastern issues into a different context. Rather than look at events as something that can be eliminated by making people like America more, Husain provides, what ... Read More »

                        My 9-11 Post

                        Screen Shot 2012-09-11 at 9.40.51 AM

                        Shot from space of New York city on 9-11-2001 I heard an interesting quote recently, that one day 9-11 will become more of a date on a calendar for people than a raw experience.

                          Over the years I’ve certainly seen my share of unfortunate names for places to eat. Ho King carryout in the UK is one of those that sticks in my head, unfortunately. Or maybe the produce truck that passed me one day on the highway with a big side on the side that said Bung Hole Foods. Here is a collection ... Read More »
